made by the awesome, fabulously brilliant [livejournal.com profile] we_dreamerz! click on it to see it in full splendor!


Series title: Blame it on Beijing
Heat: #36
Author: [livejournal.com profile] rromantic
Beta: Gold to [livejournal.com profile] akintay and [livejournal.com profile] turtletwins
Summary: Leo Brown is sponsoring the American Olympic team, and is attending the Olympic Games with them. He has asked Brian along for the trip since he will also be using the opportunity to see potential clients, and therefore needs Brian's brilliance. Justin was too busy to join them, but changed his mind after talking to a very lonely Brian on Friday, 8 August, the opening night of the Olympics.

Author orgy challenge at [livejournal.com profile] queensoftarts: Fics written by [livejournal.com profile] akintay, [livejournal.com profile] rromantic, and [livejournal.com profile] we_dreamerz will be posted at [livejournal.com profile] bj_fuckalympics (open membership), with the focus on Brian and Justin's time together in China. Each chapter is called a 'heat' in honor of the South African men's swimming team - the hottest and best swimmers in the world! You GO boys!

Warning: Of course the series is R-rated, funny and smoochy with a 'happily ever after' guaranteed.
Timeline: Roughly three years post S5, from the opening night of the Olympics, until they return to the USA (whenever our muses decide that may be).
Disclaimer: Brian and Justin and all Queer as Folk characters are owned by Showtime and Cowlip. The authors do not know any of the athletes. Places and people mentioned, and the Olympic Games, are used for fiction purposes only. No offense is intended.

| Giggle #1 || Giggle #2 || Giggle #3 |

| Previous heats || Heat #31 || Heat #32 || Heat #33 || Heat #34 || Heat #35 || Heat #36 |

Brian dips the chopsticks in the sauce, and slowly drips and smears…

First, let me say that I enjoy your fiction, especially the ones with Beam.

My question is related to posting. Why are you (and so many other people posting QAF stories in your journals or on community.livejournal.com) providing a link that goes to another link, instead of a direct link to the story? For example, the link I used to get from your journal to this page (before clicking to comment), http://rromantic.livejournal.com/140683.html

So often I happily collect a few things to read and go offline and click on my first happy little tab and ......... no story, just a link. So I trudge back online and click on that link.

Why aren't you just putting the direct link, rather than an intermediate/useless page? About.com does this (drives me nuts), and I've always assumed that was to artificially inflate their hits for advertising revenue, but why are you guys doing it? I'd really like to understand this. Thx.

"First, let me say that I enjoy your fiction, especially the ones with Beam."

aaaww, thanks so much! :D

then, you're question:

I created the [livejournal.com profile] bj_fuckalympics community because of this being a series, and as such I wanted to keep it separate from my personal journal. also, I want to keep all the comments together in one place. it's 'neater' that way. :)

as for posting only the links (and not the chapter itself) to the [livejournal.com profile] bj_fuckalympics community in e.g. my personal journal: there are people on my flist that aren't on the [livejournal.com profile] bj_fuckalympics community list. so the only reason for posting in my journal (and e.g. [livejournal.com profile] bjfic) is 'pimping'. :) just to let everyone know the next chapter is up.

for the same reason I’ve got Beam’s stories in a separate community (most of them anyway).

uhm... does that make any sense? did I understand your question correctly?
