Guys, attached is the latest in the Deconstructing series, posted a little early. This one also features a meeting with Lydia and Brian's Mom, Joan. So it's a little longer. Enjoy! Randall

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, after session 7, pt 1
I guess being sick has made me a better writer. This is my favorite between the sessions so far. I think its the most powerful segment. I made Paul read it just so I wasn't hallucinating, and he agreed. So, here it is. A DAY EARLY! Thanks for all the kind words about feeling better. Love, Randall

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, after session 7 & Joan Kinney, pt 2
Guys, here is part II of the Between the Sessions from the session 7 with Brian and his mom. Please read the first part of this BTW before you read this or it will make no sense. I won't often do two parts of these between the sessions stories, but this one had a lot of critical transitional information. With Paul out, MANY THANKS to my MYSTERY BETA, who shall remain nameless! Enjoy the angst, guys.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 8
If this is Tuesday, it must be another Lydia session! Here it is, and at the end is a little something about Justin's desire to recover his lost memories of the dance. Enjoy, R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 8
Here it is. Dedicated to my baby, Paul (GET WELL SOON!) who provided the info on Stockbridge and the peculiar method of giving directions in Massachusetts. One of the directions is a direct quote from Paul's grandpa! Anyway, I will now run for cover. Enjoy! (Remember, its just FICTION! LOL!)

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 8, part II
Ok, I promised this, sort of. This is the second part of the Between the Sessions following session 8. Too much angst to cram into one little BTS episode, I guess. I hope you enjoy it...get out the hankies! R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 9
Ok, here is the session with Brian and Lydia after the walk out by Justin. Brian is pretty raw and Lydia reaches back into his history with Justin to help him understand his feelings. R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 9
Ok, a little early ( you're welcome!) here is the newest Between the Session, after session 9. Please note Snooks and Alicia, and other medical types out there, I realize I probably stretched the role of what a shrink would be able to say, but this is fiction and it is important to move the storyline. Hopefully it's not too out of the realm of likelihood, but if so, try to enjoy it anyway. And now I am ducking!! R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 9, part II
Ok the plot sickens...uh thickens. BAD PUN. Give with one hand and take away with the other in this episode. I know this is cruel just before a QAF episode we are set to hate, but here it is. There is some hot sex in it, so it's not all bad! AND NOT WITH JEFFREY!

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 10
HEre is the latest Deconstructing Brian. Session 10. Thanks, R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 10
Guys, here is the latest, featuring everyone's favorite MIKEY! LOL! Ok, Everyone call one friend and MAKE them join our group so we can cross over to 400! We have 399 now, believe it or not! Anyway, enjoy, and before you ask, not sure if there will be a part II to this one or not. Still thinking. R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 11, with Michael Novotny
Here it is. I just blocked that damn finale, and wrapped myself up in my alternative universe. R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 11, Part I
Ok, guys, SURPRRIIIISEEEE!! LOL!! Here it is. My fave so far. Thanks to Paul for his encouragement, and everything else about him, and thanks to my MOST EXCELLENT new beta, Darren! Enjoy (and yes there will be a part II)! R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 11, Part II
Ok, here is the newest. It is the second part to the last gapfiller. The adventures continue in Pittsburgh. Hope you enjoy it. Hint, don't read it around children, rated X! R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 11, a post script
Ok, here it is. I have carpel tunnel now! LOL! May or may not make Tuesday, I am EXHAUSTED, but I had to get this out. Thanks for your understanding and patience. Randall

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 12
Here it is, a little early. Brian phones it in as the adventures continue in Pittsburgh! Enjoy! R. (My excellent Editor... Darren...is back so if it sounds more literate, that is why! One thing, Darren, you can't use italics in posts, so I have to improvise.)

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 12
THanks to Darren, editor extradonaire! In case you are wondering, I know so much about leukemia because a good friend of mine is going through it with his nephew. This storyline is dedicated to that kid and all kids suffering from this awful disease in hopes of a speedy and complete recovery. R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 13
Here it is a little early. Had no time to give to my editor, Darren, so don't blame darren for the rough edges. Enjoy. R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, after session 13, Part I
Here is part one, gang. Happy 4th! Let me know what you think! R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 13, part II
Ok, here it is. The second part to BTS, After 13. There will be a third part, of course. Enjoy and hope you all had a happy and safe holiday! R. (P.S. because of the holiday, my editor, darren, didn't get to do her magic on it, so excuse the rough edges.)

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 13, part III
Here it is, folks. Part III of the three parter I promised you on this holiday weekend!! Good boy Randall!!! Enjoy. Thanks to Darren, editor extradonaire, and was it MFB who gave me a little idea....? Or was it Roz? Now I am leaving for a massage! I earned it! R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 14
Here it is! A little early. Thanks to Darren, my editor. Hope you enjoy it! R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 14
This is dedicated to Paul who was a BIG HELP in the Friedrich stuff, especially with the German phrases!! Thank you baby. Don't blame Darren for the errors, she is not available right now to edit, and don't blame me either because I finished this around four am. Enjoy. R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 14, part II
Ok, guys, having BIG internet problems, but here it is, I HOPE. At least I'm going home tomorrow. This was a tough one to write. It may be tough to read. Good luck with it!R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 15
Ok guys, Darren got off her sick bed to edit for me! YAY DARREN!! Here it is...deliberately vague, so don't go medieval on me! Enjoy, R. (P.S. If you have not seen the movie The Usual Suspects, rent it! My favorite film! And Brian's too, in my universe. If you don't want to know the trick ending in Usual Suspects, don't read this story!!)

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 15
Gang, here it is. A little early. Thanks to Darren, who once again did not let her surgery stand in the way of important things like EDITING! LOL! This should create a little controversy! Enjoy, R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After Session 15, part II
Ok, if this is a duplicate post, so sorry! Cant find the find the post. Damn! I am out of town so Darren didn't get to edit no time. Sorry. R. Sorry if it shows up twice. Stressed out. Bye, R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 16
Ok, I have been trying to post without success. Here it is, raw and unedited and early. Can't find a way to exchange edits while on the road, this is so primitive. Thanks to all the great discussion which always fuels me creatively. Sorry to Paul for crappy messaging attempts. Hate it! Well, guys enjoy. I know this is intense, but hope that aids your reading pleasure. R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, After session 16
Ok, here it is. Thanks to Alan who edited in Darren's place because I couldn't find Darren and I'm an A personality type who requires instant response which is why everyone hates me. Thank you, Alan. SO...the plot continues to sicken. Enjoy. R

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 17
Because I love you guys and because I had the afternoon off. Special thanks to Snooks for the info re "magical thinking". Thanks to Alan for the research on doctor's rights etc. And thanks to Paul for...being Paul. Things are getting intense with poor little Brian as we drive towards the goal.... R.

BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, after session 17
Thanks for being patient guys. It's baked. Here it is. Hope you enjoy. R.

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, Session 18
A day early, but a little different for reasons I think you will find intuitively obvious. Randall

DECONSTRUCTING BRIAN, SESSIONS 19, 20, BETWEEN THE SESSIONS, AFTER 18
Thanks to all who hung in for the very end, I appreciate your time and loyalty. Thanks to Paul for encouragement, help, patience and for giving up our time together while I worked. Thanks to Lady J for incredible analyses that inspired me and delighted me. Thanks to Aliki for fascinating insight and Greek history lessons. Thanks to LaMonica for her mantra, which I hope you see used in a slightly edited way. SPECIAL BIG THANKS to Darren and Alan for the hard work and odd hours in editing. I hope you guys enjoy it. I'm exhausted! Randall
