Title: Dear Goodbye
Author: phaballa
Artist: semijocund
Pairing: Justin/Nick, Justin/Chris
Rating/Warnings: Adult in every conceivable way
Word count: 22,345

Justin remembers the sand most of all. Miles and miles of it, the lightest tan, coarse and grainy, extending in all directions to meet the fluorescent blue of the sky at the horizon in an endless line that waved in the heat of the desert sun. He remembers the dirt roads between villages and the only slightly better roads between cities; he remembers that first sip of water, sweet and cold, the best damn thing he ever tasted even after only ten minutes under the sun. He remembers riding in the back of the jeep, pressed hip-to-knee with his company and wondering if today was the day they'd all get fucked to hell by a roadside bomb.

But mostly, Justin remembers the sand. The sand, and Nick.

I'd like to thank milosflaca who helped me a lot, especially with the final scenes that were a complete mess and so, that last bit? Consider it co-written for all the phonecalls that went between us. To bubbleforest for all her patience, and I'm very sorry I was a day late. I hate my work sometimes, but I did finish. To otherdeb who betaed the first 8.000 or so words, before my computer and rl troubles ate my time, and to musiclover03 and ravenbat because they encoruaged me to follow this bunny.

Also, a big, big apologize since this had to be up yesterday. I hope the fic is good enough that you all forgive me for the lateness...
