No, rest assured. The 2 cases are totally unrelated and will have no bearing on one another. Just be patient a little longer. Can always make an I FOPASS appointment to inquire at your local USCIS District office where you are waiting to be interviewed, but they will tell you nothing you don't know already.

Don't worry. 6 months is still normal waiting time for you to be hearing back on your interview date. Your brother's case - unless significantly contradictory to yours - would cause you no problems. Best of luck to both of you!
