A/N: five drabbles written for a challenge at qaf_land. The prompts were

Justin was watching white snow cover the grey city. He had always loved winters. They were refreshing. They were white, and they were pure. They meant something new. They meant change.

He stepped closer to touch the frozen window with his fingers. It was cold. The city was cold. He was cold.

He sighed and held his breath. He only hoped that a certain man, miles away from there, saw the same snow, felt the same cold, and wanted the same thing: change.

Then they could start everything anew. Together this time.

Then they would have reasons to love winter.

“These are ice cubes.” Brian gave the plastic bag to Justin, cursing Ian inwardly. Justin squeezed his eyes shut, his long eyelashes stuck together with tears. The bruises fucking hurt.


Then Brian lost it. That kiss was not supposed to happen.


Brian’s thumbs traced the arches of Justin’s cheekbones. They were more prominent now, as if Justin had lost weight, was worn out. It seemed they both stopped breathing. Brian touched cool skin with his lips, gathered the wetness. Justin answered the kiss, let Brian in, only to end that with his finger on Brian’s lips.


“I can’t.” He whispered.

Stacy didn’t like him, Gus was sure. Why would she like him? He was too tall, too skinny, his hazel eyes almost too big for his lean face.


He threw his bag in the corner in frustration as he came back from school.


“You okay, Sonnyboy?” Brain raised his eyebrow.


“No, I am not!” Gus sounded desperate. “ You know what I want? For Justin to be my real dad!” The boy burst out.


“How come?” The talk promised to be entertaining.


“If he was, I’d be all short, and blonde, and cute!”


Brian smiled, his worst fears all forgotten.

“Ma!” Michael yelled. “You say that word again and you never get JR for holidays!”


“What?” Deb just couldn’t get it. “Ass is a normal word. It is natural.”


“It’s not! Not for a girl of four!” Michael didn’t even try to stay calm. “I don’t want my daughter to curse like a sailor! That’s it.”


“Like an adman.” Gus murmured under his breath.


“What?” Both Deb and Michael stopped staring at each other and turned their heads to look at JR’s brother.


“I was at Dad’s office yesterday.” Gus smirked. “You should say ‘Curse like an adman.' Believe me.”

“Dad, why do you call the house Britin?” Gus always wondered.


“Ask Justin.” Because really? Brian wasn’t going to explain. He was not that sappy.


Justin lifted his head from a sketch book. He personally didn't have problems with it. It was HIS genius idea. “It is from Brian and Justin. Britin.”


“Like in spork?” Gus asked.


“Yeah.” Justin was absorbed by the drawing again.


“Fantabulous.” Gus turned to his Dad. “I’m going to get rid of the shmess in my room before Moms are here.”


“Shmess?” Brian raised his eyebrow.


“Uh-huh. Like in shit and mess.” Gus rushed upstairs.

I love them all !
Especially the first (both beautiful and nostalgic) and the one with Gus and the "curse like an adman" !
Really, you gave to the characters a lot of life and "sparks".
