I received a delightful surprise email this week. Lupin111 wrote a sequel to the fic she wrote for my gift way back in the 2013 exchange. So we decided to post it here as a little enticement to everyone to consider signing up for this year's gift exchange. less than 6 days to go!

TO: [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish
FROM: [livejournal.com profile] lupin111
TITLE: Atlantis
GIFT REQUEST: Tattoo Artist Justin.
NOTE: Sequel to ‘Rome’, which was written for the QAF Gift Exchange 2013. Can be read independently, but makes far more sense when read as a sequel to ‘Rome’.
Beta: Xrifree

Well, I guess I'll sign off for another year (unless a couple more missing fics roll in...)

Gifters are free to post their stories, etc to their own journals and other places around the interweb. If you crosspost your fic to AO3, there is a "community: qaf_giftxchnge" tag, plus there's also a 'collection' for it too (qaf_giftxchnge).

I hope everyone had fun creating and reaping the benefits of these creations! :D I did some begging and some arm twisting of people into agreeing to double duty (or more!) to get as many works as we did this exchange, so thank-you so much to everyone that was able to contribute to our little corner of fandom this year.

And now for a little poll (comments are screened if you want elaborate on any of the questions)

[Poll #1951977]

Thanks again to everyone for their participation!

TITLE: Jude...A Home For Christmas
GIFT REQUEST: Fic. Fluff/Schoomp/WarmAndFuzzyFeelings. Brian and Justin and I would like a nice fluffy family aimed Christmas piece. Maybe one where they have Gus or have adopted a child in addition to Gus so they have the kids for Christmas and different family things you do at Christmas. Norman Rockwell Painting-esque

TITLE: New Year
GIFT REQUEST: Fic. Post-series. I would love a Ted/Blake fic showing how they finally make things work, but I would also enjoy an ensemble type story that they were part of as I adore all the characters. Of course, a good dose of Brian/Justin is always appreciated.

TITLE: Flying on a Star
GIFT REQUEST: Fic. - Post-513 (rating is authors choice) - Focus on Brian and Justin is appreciated but not necessary
NOTE: Happy Holidays [livejournal.com profile] maybe742! Sorry this took so long. I've had this particular vision of Brian and Justin post 513 in my head for years, and you finally gave me the push to write it. I hope you enjoy. Title is taken from REM's "Uberlin."

FROM: [livejournal.com profile] xheartrockx
TITLE: 500 Miles (1/2)
GIFT REQUEST: Fic - Post-513 - NC-17 is appreciated but not necessary. Brian and Justin are on a road trip. Why they are on the road, what they're doing and who else is involved or not, that's all up to you.
NOTE: First off, huge thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish, not only for hosting these festivities but also for kicking me and my muse in the butt about this fic. It wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her. Unfortunately, it’s not here entirely yet and this is just part one of two. I hope to get the rest into a presentable form by the end of next week and post a link in the comments here. Thanks for your patience and I hope you enjoy what I came up with.
SUMMARY: Brian struggles with the long-distance relationship. So he does what he always does – he pretends not to care and throws himself into his work. At the launch party for Kinnetik NYC, he runs into Justin again. Both are invited to spend Christmas in Toronto. When a blizzard hits, they are forced to share a car. Could this be the perfect opportunity to deal with their troubles?

TITLE: No Endings, Only Beginnings
GIFT REQUEST: Fic. Humor/crossover. Pairing/character/theme/focus: Brian/Justin Chris Colfer/Kurt Hummel and/or some other out celebrity. Could be a client or someone they meet in NY or LA.
NOTE: 1380 words. Post-513 and/or future!fic AU - Five Times Kurt Hummel could have crossed paths with Brian and Justin. No threesomes were depicted in the making of this fanfic, but that doesn't mean none were propositioned. Hope that's okay! AND a huge thank you to [livejournal.com profile] such_a_steph for her fantastic last minute beta! Much appreciated.

TITLE: Never Say Never
GIFT REQUEST: Future fic. Brian and Justin. Justin wants kids, Brian doesn't
NOTE: About 2,900 words. This may have come out a little fluffier than [livejournal.com profile] selenebj wanted, but in my head canon Justin wanting kids and Brian not, would never come between them for reals. I hope it satisfies, nonetheless.

GIFT REQUEST: Video. Can be angsty but with a happy ending. Brian/Justin pairing.
Other Specifications: Vidder's choice of music, but I prefer ballads, if possible.
NOTE: You know, giving me free range is always a dangerous thing to do. So yeah, Stay IS a Rihanna ballad but THIS version is the Adam Lambert live cover.See? Dangerous... LOL ;-) And I really hope that you'll like what I created!

GIFT REQUEST: Fic. AU, angst maybe?, lots of sexual tension/chemistry. tattoo artist Justin. Brian comes in for a back piece (or whatever)....could even be a giant set of wings ;) Why Brian is getting the tattoo is up to you. [I'd imagine he'd have to be there for multiple sittings]
NOTE: I hope this is close to what you wanted. I didn’t think it would be so hard to start writing again, but it was, and I struggled and missed about four deadlines. I hope the story is somewhere in the vague area of what you expected. If it is, I will do an angst-filled Part Two/extended epilogue. Merry Christmas, and I wish you all the very, very best for 2014. May it be full of wonder, joy and magic.

NOTE: Beta by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] such_a_steph who sacrificed sleep on her family holiday vacation so this fic could be as error free as possible. A banner will come upon her return to her native land down under. Do doubly thank you to her!

TO: [livejournal.com profile] galeandrandy
FROM: [livejournal.com profile] wren_kt7oz
TITLE: Kynergy
SUMMARY: The request was kind of long, but the gist of it was that Brian and Justin should be occasional fuck buddies and then Brian should realize he wants more when Justin decides to start dating because he’s now ready for a relationship.

I tried to write that. I really did. But the story just wouldn’t go that way. I battled with it for a week or so, and in the end it kind of wrote itself and this is how it came out. I hope you like it, honey, because I was so thrilled to be the one to present you with your "gift".
