Gift Request: I'd love a bj lj design. I'm useless at that stuff. Genre: Romantic. Pairing/character/theme/focus: Brian/Justin (is there any other? *g*) Other specifications: Love blue and green - all the sea colours.)

Notes: The layout is done using Flexible Squares. I hope you like it! It turned out a bit more green than I first intended, but I got you some B/J lovelies and celtic stuff and a quilt to help you when you write... ;)

There are some graphics in it that needs to be uploaded to your image server or host. Please contact me at and we'll get everything sorted out. Oh - and since I celebrate Christmas on the 24:th (Swedes are a crazy bunch!) I might not get back to you until the 25:th. ;)

Gift request: no easier to fulfil request - you asked for anything. :-) I hope this meets your expectations - HAPPY CHRISTMAS! I was very happy to make it for you, and I'll be happy to change anything you want (from A to Z if that's it ;-). I made two versions of a BJ wallpaper.
Click for the 1024x768 size.

And two matching icons:

And a somewhat chillier (fitting for the season) special Christmas edition for you! :-)

All of you, have a peaceful Christmas.
And thank you [info]ohfreckle for taking the time and the effort to make this gift exchange happen. You're awesome. :-)

Gift Request: I would like a very "High School"-looking banner for my LJ of Brian/Justin. Lined notebook paper, doodles, scribbles and all the like. Don't mind if it's AU, would prefer canon, though.

I hope this is what you had in mind. Please let me know if you want anything changed.

Gift Request: "The only fandom I'm interested in is QAF, but I'd like one icon outside the fandom;i.e., one that reflects my political affiliation. I'm a bleeding heart liberal Democrat...I NEED a Justin icon."
The liberal democrat quote came from here, just to give credit ;o) I hope this is what you were looking for! Enjoy and happy holidays!

Title: It’s Just Brunch

Genre: romance, humor
Warning: AU (characters are in canon, future timeline)
Disclaimer: All characters and situations from Queer As Folk are the property of Russell T. Davies, CowLip Productions, Tony Jonas Productions, Showtime Networks Inc. and others. No copyright infringement is intended.

A [info]qaf_giftxchnge wish for [info]arlad who wished for a fic where Brian and Justin have to have dinner with the Taylor family, and Brian charms their pants off.
Pairing/character/theme/focus: B/J, from the point of view of anyone but Brian, awkward family dinners, the focus: hmm, how Brian can charm anyone if he sets his mind to it.
Other specifications: Don't forget Molly exists, as CowLip seemed to do for awhile.

Story summary: I made this story AU/Future timeline. Perhaps a tiny bit OOC, but go with it, I think it works. Brian and Justin are fuck buddies. Justin’s mother discovers Brian at her son’s apartment one day, assumes he’s Justin’s boyfriend and invites them to brunch.

Summary: “You do realize that I was five when that song was popular.”
A/N: Okay dear, I really did try to write your request more in the spirit in which I’m sure you intended it but it just wasn’t working. I think I tried three different versions and none of them felt right to me. So this fic probably isn’t exactly what you had in mind but I really hope you do enjoy it anyway. Basically, it’s PWP. Happy Holidays!

Title: The Answer
Gift Request: B/J gap filler b/w 409-410 Justin helps Brian cope...
Other specifications: stays true to canon. No AU.
Rating: R (for language)
Summary: It’s not exactly an AU - more a what if … what if Justin didn’t wait for Michael to explain why Brian had pushed him away? It seems to me that it’s something Justin’s more than capable of working out for himself. Takes place immediately after the scene at Kinnetik where Brian tells Cynthia to get a restraining order if Justin shows up there again.

Title : The mysterious case of the missing baking soda

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: It’s Christmas about two years after the show ends. Justin has Emmett and Gus at the house to prepare Christmas – what happens when Brian interferes?
A little Christmas story, B/J style. Many thanks to [info]badbadpixie for her much appreciated help.

Where’s the baking soda? Justin asked and bent over to see if the single sachets of natron had fallen to the floor. Brian admired the view but stayed quiet. Instead he reached into his pocket once more to check that he’d hidden the missing ingredient well. )
