I wonder why 60% of the QaF audience is made up of straight women?
Justin Appreciation Week: Free Choice
Snapped these myself this time. I love how in this scene their conversation has two meanings.
Justin: I’m sorry it won’t happen again.
Brian: You’re damned right it won’t. You’re through.
Justin: Are you firing me?
Brian: You wanted on the job experience right? Lesson one, you fuck up, you’re gone.
Justin: Brian, Mr. Kinney. I would appreciate it if you would give me a second chance.
Brian: I never should have given you the first one. Now pack up your shit and go home.
Justin: I guess I should have expected this. I mean you never wanted me here to begin with. You didn’t want to see my face everyday when you came into work. Although a part of me was kind of hoping eventually you wouldn’t mind it. Maybe even get used to it. I guess I was wrong.

Justin Taylor Appreciation Week: Favorite Story Arc
My favorite Justin storyline is when he sets out to destroy Stockwell. He is so determined and won’t let anything stand in his way, not even Brian. Afterall, Brian is the one who wants him to be the best homosexual possible. I love how Justin enjoys his secret identity while internshipping at Vanguard. I think the storyline shows how independent Justin is and how he will do things on his own without any help from others.

Justin Taylor Appreciation Week: Most Heartbreaking Moment(s)
This might add up to three moments but the scene that first comes to mind is when Brian and Justin say farewell. They have sex one last time and Justin has tears when they make love. Then he disappears off the bed leaving Brian sitting there alone. I thought it was so beautifully done because it makes you feel the loss of Justin too. Every time I watch that final episode I always have to tell myself, “Calm down, they’re gonna visit each other all the time.”
Justin Appreciation Week: Favorite Relationship.
Well, this is pretty much a no brainer. The sex scenes are super hot but I think I love the fun intimate moments most of all. I think an age difference can be healthy for many people.
I often feel sorry for Justin as he is almost always hurting on some level due to Brian’s ways and attitudes toward committment. And yet I have to be really happy for him because I know how much he loves Brian and how good that feels. He certainly puts up with alot from Brian and it’s obvious he does so because he knows that Brian truly loves him, as they often say on the show, “Whether he wants to admit it or not.” :))
By the way, I got these captures from a website called, qafcaps.com/gallery. It’s got about 100,000 snaps from the series. It’s definitely the go to place for any QaF pictures you may be looking for.
Justin Appreciation week: Favorite scene.
That is so tough because he’s such a passionate guy and so many of his scenes are very emotional. The one that stands out in my mind most of all is when he returns to Brian after being thrown out for knowing about the cancer. I love how he yells, “You’re not getting rid of me!” Teen stalker strikes again. Haha. It’s such a great scene for both of them.
"I want you to get your ass back in bed you son of a bitch and eat some fucking chicken soup."
My favorite Justin season? This is cruel. If I have to choose I would go with the 4th season. I know that Randy was not happy about the Pink Possy storyline. But I did appreciate it because I know how Justin felt. When I was in school, I was pushed around by tougher girls than me. I ran home crying, yes in the rain. I didn’t understand why some girls would be so cruel. And to this day I feel anger about it. But it’s not towards the girls that bullied me. I’m mad at myself. I’m mad at myself for not being tougher. It’s the same with Justin. He was mad at himself for, as he put it, “not doing anything”. So in those episodes, Justin lashes out at others. In that case it was all heteros. But he was really mad at himself. That was a lesson he needed to learn on his own time and in his own way. And Brian stepped back and let him do it.
I’m conflicted about the way it ended. I don’t like the way Justin psychologically torturted Hobbs. But when Justin walks away with that
jerk yelling at him, and he realizes what a psychopath that guy really is, gives me chills. I thought it was a brilliant ending to the storyline, although very disturbing. I was happy that it was over.
