SILENCE AND TEARS, Chapter 21, The Conclusion. Brian's POV  
This was a story about how the last season of QAF might have ended. It's an alternative to what was filmed. I've been through all the stages of grief over the way the show was written, and now this is my reconciliation, for Brian and Justin, for Randall and his love for the show. Some of you wanted more, detailed rendering of their relationship. That's not how I viewed this particular story. This was exactly what I wanted to say, how I wanted it to end. It's my view, plain and simple, neither right nor wrong. I'm leaving my LJ open in case I want to post any thing else outside of my P/CP work, even fiction unrelated to QAF. Maybe the first Vanished gap filler? (JOKE!) I hope you enjoyed this little love story, it was very therapeutic for me. Love, Randall

The end
Hi Randall,

I returned from a trip to find that you had finished this wonderful story. As sad as I am to see it end, it was most fitting for Brian and Justin to have it end like that.

I appreciate all the time and effort that you have put into your stories of our boys. I still love them dearly, and there should be "no regrets" at the point where you have left them. Thanks so much.

it's so good to have a more decent ending/continuation/beginning. i can now die in peace.

I found this story maybe two weeks ago. I started with reading the last chapter and then continued backwards for a few chapters, before beginning with chapter 1. Otherwise I don’t think I would have read the whole story because I would have been too afraid of a bad ending. What a loss that would have been! This story is so wonderful! You really captured Brian and Justin and made a truly canon-like “season 6”.
Thanks for sharing this! ♥

Sweet! I've been refraining from reading fan fic for a while, so of course I had to read the whole series tonight. I'm glad I did. Nicely done. It's a keeper.

Better late than never!
Randall, all I can say is Thank You...from the bottom of my wretched little heart, Thank You!

Like a total twat, I just found your story. but... better late than never! After the series ended I had such a difficult time coming to terms with CL's vision that I had to pull back from the "fandom" in order to heal my wounded heart. Hence my lateness in finding your wonderful story.

Others have commented much more eloquently than I ever could about the individual chapters and I have agreed with so much that they have written. For me, what I found most touching is your understanding that Love is such a precious, rare thing...to be held onto and nurtured whenever possible. Some of us never find such love and I personally found it very disturbing how easily is was dismissed by CL...but I shan't go there!

"Silence and Tears" has given me a much more satisfying conclusion to the story of Brian and Justin! For that I will always be grateful to you.

I live in hope that you will continue to write B&J (greedy one that I am) but I will always have your wonderful stories to re-read whenever I need a 'fix'.

Love you Randall

I've just spent a lovely evening reading this story and I now want to say thank-you. I really enjoyed what you have written. To me, the Brian and Justin story is one of the greatest love stories ever written and you have given it an ending that I really love.

I loved it loved it loved it. I just recently discovered QAF and the wonder that is Justin and Brian. I was pissed at the conclusion of the season 5 eventhough I knew it was coming. This story just mended a small tear that was in my heart at the ending. Thank you!

I just re-read this and loved it as much as the first time. Wanted to let you know how much I miss your stories. I assume p/cp is over since I am unable to access this site. If you have stopped writing b/j fiction altogether due to real life demands or just being weary of it, please, please know how much joy your stories brought to all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I've just spent a wonderful evening sitting on the couch with a computer on my lap reading the entire story of Silence and Tears. As always, your writing was beautiful. Your depth of understanding of the characters is what makes this story so good. It's real and it's human and thank you so much for writing it!

Eureka! The antidote!
V.v. late to the party: so glad I learned about you and Brian from an imdb post! You and your partner are the love children of Russell T. Davies and Charles Dickens. Thanks for so much pleasure; off to read some more of your goodies.

And I am even later to the party. Part of the clean up crew? I stumbled upon this while reading some of your other stories. I wanted to tell you that you are a really gifted writer. I love your stuff and I think this story was absolutely beautiful.
