CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD

Title: Chivalry Is Not Dead
Author: later2nite
Pairing: Brian and Justin
Word Count: 400
Timeline: 108 - Justin and Brian alternating POVs




1)
"Look at your mom, Justin."

Brian was the only one who could tell me what to do. I ceased the sullen staring at my hands in my lap and cast her a sidelong glance. Oozing kindness and love, my mother desperately wanted me back home.

The veins in my dad's neck bulged, exasperation teeming inside of him like fiery lava. It seemed as if he'd vomit at the thought of Brian's cock inside me.

Rising slowly, my eyes connected with Brian's when my mom urged me to go to my room. He nodded for me to do as she'd said.


2)
I collected my ward from St. James Academy at dismissal and headed out to the suburbs, having previously engineered a meeting with Justin's parents to discuss his timely return. I wasn't into permanent boarders.

Sitting quietly in the corner of the Taylors' den, I listened as they attempted to resuscitate their fractured relationship with their son. They may have been trying to apply a small tenuous band-aid to a gaping wound, but at least it was a start.

Something about the way Justin's father cringed when he dared to look my way sent an ominous shiver up my spine.


3)
"And one more thing, Justin," my father snarled, wishing Brian substantial bodily harm.

Gaping wounds require so much more than stopgap measures, but even carefully planned open-heart surgery couldn't have closed this one. I knew right then I could never live in my father's house again. Problem was, I didn't know where I could live.

"That's not love. That's hate," Brian spoke his mind, standing up for me when I didn't know what to do. "Justin, you coming?" he called over his shoulder when he was halfway out the door.

My chivalrous knight in shining armor had rescued me once again.


4)
Justin's mother knew she'd lost. He would have given anything to have made her happy, yet he followed me out the door.

I never intended for this to happen. I'd tried to return their lost sheep to the fold, but I just couldn't bear to witness the death of his dignity.

A quiet, reflective trip back to my loft prefaced the topsy-turvy routine into which we soon fell. You know, the one where I flip-flop between parenting him and fucking his brains out - just your average, run-of-the-mill existence.

Doesn't everyone live like this?



The End

Thank you so much. I love how Brian rescues Justin from his evil father in this scene.

You're up late - (or else rising very early) I know because I'm awake in the middle of the night and we're in the same city! ♥

In that scene I could have slapped Craig in his ugly face. What an idiot. LOL.
But Brian did the best thing ever as he said..."Justin...you coming?"
I so loved it! Indeed a chivalrous knight in shining armor. :)
Thanks so much for sharing, my dear.
later2nite: we want you to come homelater2nite on March 14th, 2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
I know, right? What a miserable excuse for a father Craig Taylor turned out to be! I was ready to bitch slap him silly the first time I saw this scene. But Brian so saved his Sunshine from the evil bastard. "Justin, you coming?" were the prettiest 3 words ever to be spoken up to that point in S1.

Thanks so much for your nice feedback. I'm happy you enjoyed it. ♥
stellakinneystellakinney on March 14th, 2012 08:37 pm (UTC)
I like it expecially the last one, very good job :)

Thank you, my dear friend!! I'm so happy that you liked it. ♥

I've had a hectic morning and haven't had a chance to email you yet, but OMG!!! I absolutely LOVE the gifs!! That last one?? Blew my brain! Thank you so much. *hugs you tightly*

Brian to the rescue. I loved it when all he had to say was "Justin you coming?". That topsy -turvey routine I believe he really did like because it came with a great prize. Justin.

Dee Dee
later2nite: we want you to come homelater2nite on March 15th, 2012 03:21 am (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. I think he didn't mind the parenting responsibilities at all because of the prize that came with them. The first time I heard him ask, "Justin, you coming?" I was freaking out of my mind with happiness. It was so awesome of him to rescue his Sunshine from the evil Craig Taylor.

Thanks for the nice feedback, Dee Dee. ♥

Linda, you made an otherwise simply disgusting homophobic scene into something so beautifully written. Excellent p.o.v's. Thank you! HUGS, A

Wow! It's so nice of you to leave such wonderful feedback. Thanks so much for the kind words. ♥

I read your post that said you weren't feeling well on your birthday. So sorry you were under the weather. I don't know if you ever saw the birthday post I made for you, so I thought I'd give you the link to it:

Love Brian's flip-flop dilemma bit. So true...which was why, thankgod, deb came into the picture.
Fabulous quad of drabbles my dear!

Craig was such a hateful Dad in this ep. I could have thumped him. I loved the way Brian rescued him with such appropriate words. You wrote this really well esp. Brian's POV.

My fave lines: "you know, the one where I flip-flop between parenting him and fucking his brains out - just your average, daily, run-of-the-mill existence." That made me laugh.
later2nite: dad apologizelater2nite on August 25th, 2012 08:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, Craig - the homophobic asshole father of the year... I'd like to join you in thumping him!

Thank you for this awesome comment. I'm happy that you enjoyed it. ♥

And yes, I love *protective Brian* !
later2nite: dad apologizelater2nite on August 25th, 2012 02:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for the great feedback. This really was the end of Justin's family. I was so proud of Brian for for rescuing Justin from his miserable excuse of a father. Glad you liked it. ♥

I forgot I read this before. Lol. I loved it even more the second time. You have a beautiful way with words. "Parenting & Fucking him." Just wonderful. Lol. Hugs! His father was a prick!!!!

Hi, Annie! Yeah, I'm just posting a lot of my fics and drabbles to the comms I never knew about when I posted them in my journal. But glad you loved it even more the second time - you're so sweet with your praise. Thank you for that.

*Hugs you* ♥
