It’s very simple. I’m alive. I live in Pittsburgh. I like men. Not just as friends. I’m also a human being. And my gear works. So I want to have sex. I like to have sex a lot. That’s the story. Now, I’m good at what I do, an advertising exec. I have decent taste. I’m crass. I’m snarky. I’m very sarcastic. And a lot of people make me want to kill them. But that doesn’t change the fact that I’m a man, my sex organs work, I’m not attracted to women for whatever reason, I didn’t create the human race so I don’t know how that works, and maybe someday somebody will, but for the moment nobody does. I just know what makes me excited or gets me up or gets me down or however you want to put it. That was Brian. He wanted what he wanted and he was going to get it, and he didn’t care. It’s not because he didn’t care about other people. It’s because he had equated reality with satisfaction and he was acknowledging his animal side. And not to say the animal side is better or worse than the intellectual side or the spiritual side but it’s a side, and it’s one of the things he enjoyed expressing. So we just have to be honest with each other. Everybody, whether you like it or not, has sex in your brain, somewhere. And hopefully it’s in your body a lot, too. So, get over it, right? Just get over it. Just do it. Be safe, but just do it.
Gale Harold on how he understood the character of Brian Kinney [x]
Another part from the book ‘Team Brian’, translated by me from the original Japanese (thanks to a fan for sharing a few pages with me):
(Early August 2014, writer Yoshie Noguchi had a talk with Brian Orser and Yuzuru Hanyu.)
Finding “Yuzuru’s skating style”
—Half a year has passed since winning the Olympic gold medal.
Firstly, after this Olympics, what do you want to say to each other?
Brian: First I want to say congratulations. You can become even stronger, so don’t stop, let’s go on improving together.
Yuzu: Although it is only a short period of 2 years from the time I joined
Brian to the Olympics , I was always discussing with him while
practising and so I was able to grow before Sochi and I could show my
capabilities there. When I first came to Toronto, there was the English
barrier (t/n. language barrier), but Brian could always sense what I
was thinking and what I wanted to do. Brian as a coach, to do that for
me, it’s really wonderful.
B: 2 years ago, when Yuzuru
first came to Toronto, he already had amazing abilities. The first time
I saw him was at Nebelhorn Trophy 2011 and my first impression was, an
amazing skater has appeared. At World Championships 2012 in Nice which I
went to with Javier Fernandez, he had grown into our strong rival. Overflowing with youth and zeal, he is a skater that we must pay special
attention to in the near future, I thought. Then, soon after that
World Championships, I got word that he wanted to be a part of my team.
It was a big surprise!
Y: For me, during the 2011-2012
season, I saw that the quality of Javier’s quad jumps had become very
good. The success rate had also increased. In competition and also at
official practice, his quads were very good. I heard that he had moved
to train with Brian and so I thought there must be some secret at
Brian’s place. To me, quad jumps are my biggest weapon. If that jump
is stable, there is a chance that my skating and expression and all
other parts will become good too. That’s why I thought I want to learn
—I heard that when Yuzuru first moved to Toronto, the training was not on quad jumps but just on the basics.
B: When Yuzuru came to Toronto in the spring of 2012, I first took him
to some rinks here and there in the city and we skated together. That
was like a kind of experiment. I made him do various steps and
transitions, and I watched from every angle what kind of skating skills
he has and what kind of characteristics are in his movements. I
realised that many of his skills are random and change with his
feelings. Having such frequent fluctuations in technique due to
feelings, he would not be able to do stable jumps.
as Brian has said, before coming to Toronto, there was a part of my
skating that was affected by my mood for the day. Even in a programme,
the feeling of speed and cross-skating steps were random; I myself felt
—So because of that, you started with the practice of foundation skating?
B: We started from having an in-depth discussion with Yuzuru. It is
important to find the techniques that fit him and then decide the goal.
Everyone has different skills and habits, it’s important to find that.
Before plunging into quads practice, we must strengthen the foundation,
in other words, the skating skills. Javier and Nam also managed to
find skills that fit them, so in the same way, we searched for the
“Yuzuru skating style”. Actually 2 years have passed and we are still
searching for it, but someday, he must have his own style.
did skating practice when I was a child, but after moving up to senior
level, learning skating skills all over again, it was the first time.
So initially, it was hard. Actually, now it’s still hard. (laughs)
But I understood that it would be good for me in the future and also
good for the programme as a whole.
B: That’s right. The
wonderful thing about Yuzuru is that he accepted quickly this basic
skating practice. Or maybe he had no other choice. (laughs) In Cricket
Club, there is skating practice for all skaters, led by Tracy Wilson.
The difference in ability among each of them is clearly shown, and they
also have to work hard to catch up with the rest. Yuzuru cannot be
doing skating that changes with his mood, he has to skate together with
the others, and through this, he understood more about basic skating
Y: Yes it’s true. After coming to Toronto, I’ve
really felt that my awareness of skating skills is connected to the
stability of my skating and quad jumps. I felt the skills for the
set-up to my jumps and timing improved.
—Besides skating, in terms of training as a whole, what kind of things did you pay attention to?
B: My coaching style places great importance on communication. This
is even more important for skaters like Yuzuru who have great talent. I
think there are coaches who demand that “this skill must be done this
way”. But for me, each skater has different techniques already in
possession, so the coach should adapt to each skater. So for Yuzuru, I
do not say you must jump with this method but we search for the method
that is best for him.
Y: That’s right. I discuss everything
with Brian. For jump practice, first a video is taken, then both of us
watch it together. Brian would ask, “What kind of feeling was that?”
and I would answer, “My bodily sense felt like this.” Then Brian would
give me some advice, “Ok how about trying it this way?” So this is done
over and over again in the process of making my jumps.
B: The important thing is “a good feeling”. I realised it in the time we
skated together, Yuzuru is like me when I was a skater, the type that
places great value on the “feeling of the jump”. The training method
suitable for this type is to video record the “good feeling”(jump),
analyse it objectively and identify the pattern that succeeds. The
breathing at that time, the condition of the body, the rhythm, the use
of the knees, the path of set-up, the form when jumping, we explored all
[apologies to Brian and Yuzu if I did not translate it well.]
At what point in the series do you think Brian fell in love with Justin and when do you think Brian realized he was in love?
Oh, Nonny. You had to go there. After I showed such remarkable restraint on my last ask, you had to ask the question guaranteed to make me ramble on for a century with all my thoughts, feelings, and theories. Very well. You asked for it. :D
Now, this is a really interesting question to think about and actually somewhat challenging to answer, because Brian genuinely didn’t believe in love. He couldn’t even conceptualize it. So while he may have been feeling all these emotions toward Justin that people generally associate with falling in love, Brian himself wouldn’t have recognized it as love even if it bit him on the ass (which, come to think of it, I’m sure Justin did).
My short answer is this: I think the first time we witnessed a true spark of love from Brian was during 1x07, and it built steadily all throughout the first season, and by the end of 1x17 he was absolutely in love. Now, that’s not to say he always accepted those feelings, or acted in a way that somebody generally would when they’re in love, because, come on, he’s Brian Kinney. As for when he actually realized it? I’d place it at prom, and one specific instance at prom, but I’m going to put that below the cut because believe me, I will ramble. However, we all know what happens at prom, and following those events, Brian tried to drown out the idea of being in love from his mind, mainly with drugs, liquor, and plenty of sex. But by the end of 2x02, I believe we’ve reached the point where Brian can’t deny to himself that he’s in love with Justin, even if he won’t use those exact words.
So, that’s the short answer. If you want the long answer, complete with pictures and a nearly episode by episode description of Brian falling in love with the incredible Justin Taylor, let’s hop along under the cut.
aka that ninja ship party (brian/danny) post-concert whippets fic for the wonderful @egocentrifuge‘s birthday rating: m for non-specific dick grabbing content warning for recreational drug use (nitrous), unironic use of the word ‘tubular,’ and excessive pining on ao3 excerpt:
“Hi,” Danny says, like he doesn’t have his arms full of bright, neon-colored balloons. “How was your shower?”
“Did you rob a clown,” Brian says flatly.
“I have drugs!” Danny singsongs in reply, stepping into the room and letting the balloons tumble out of his arms and go rolling in random directions.
“Are those drugs LSD, and did you take them ten minutes ago?”
Danny laughs at him and scoops up one of the balloons, pops it into the air in Brian’s direction. “No— The concert, remember? You were asking about whippets. And here they are. I made whippets appear. I’m the goddamn whippet king.”
“Ah,” Brian says, letting the door swing shut and catching the balloon before it hits the floor. “I remember. And then I said, ‘after the concert, why don’t you go out in your boxers and buy drugs?’ That was my favorite part of the conversation.”
“These are indeed my drug-buying boxers,” Danny says, agreeably and without hesitation.
