I think I should have put a warning at the beginning of the last chapter. I thought it was pretty obvious where the story was going, but perhaps it wasn't or people were hoping it wasn't. With only seeing Brian's point of view, Justin is not looking too good, is he? Originally, I wanted to write the story from both their viewpoints, but it didn't really work and I couldn't find Justin's voice. Compared to Brian, he came over as flat. Well, let's face it: compared to Brian, any character is a little flat. I am still toying with the idea of writing a short companion piece from Justin's point of view, but it's becoming increasingly unlikely. The story is what it is.
I am hoping that this chapter will make everyone feel a bit better. I had a huge amount of messages and am struggling to do them all justice. Is it always like this? How do people have a life outside lj then? I am enjoying myself enormously and appreciate each and every comment. Please, don't be offended if I don't get round to answering them any time soon. Therefore, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone here. I'm very touched. And very happy.
I really should do some work tomorrow. So, no update until Wednesday, most likely.
Anyway, here's Part Four:
