You're very welcome, sweetheart.  I'm glad you like it.  I was worried there for a moment...

Why the hell were you worried? I asked you to make it sweet, and you not only made it sweet but sexy and beautiful!

You are one hell of a writer, Marie, you leave all of us here breath- and speachless.

Toycoon and Marie,

the rope scene is one of my favorites, too, allthough it is so heartbreaking I sometimes can hardly stand it. The thought  of Ennis avoiding to look Jack in the eye for fear of losing control is sweet and sad. Sweet and sad, OMG how many times have we all used these words speaking about Ennis and Jack?

This is a drabble that I wrote...thought you all might enjoy it!



Brokeback Mountain
July, 1963

At last, it was hot.

Summer had finally come to the mountain and the heat of the day lingered into the evening. Jack pulled the blankets out of the tent and spread them by the campfire. “C’mere, cowboy,” he said, pulling Ennis by the hand. “I want ta love ya under the stars,” turning to look at the inky darkness overhead.

“Wha….?” said Ennis, his voice slurred.

Jack bit his tongue. The love word had slipped out. He hadn’t meant to say it, but he knew now that he was desperately, hopelessly in love with this man. Tall, lean, with bony wrists and long legs, he realized he adored everything about him from the way he smiled at him over a can of beans to the way he said “Huh?” when he was confused.

“C’mon,” said Jack softly, pushing Ennis back to the blanket, unbuttoning his shirt and sliding it off his shoulders. He ran his tongue down Ennis’s chest, stopping at the twirl of hair around his navel, unbuckling his belt.

“I think I’m drunk…” said Ennis, his head lolling back on the blanket.

How drunk, Ennis? thought Jack. Drunk enough that if I say ‘I love you,’ you won’t remember it in the morning? Drunk enough that if I say I want to be with you forever, you’ll say yes?

“Ennis, I…”

“Shhh, Jack, stop talkin’,” said Ennis, turning onto his side and pulling Jack in for a rough kiss. “Let’s get ta the lovin’.”

Jack froze, the word hanging in the air between them.

“Under the stars…”

So romantic and tender, MaineWriter.  Also just a little sad that Jack is afraid of revealing too much.  Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.

So the drabblefest thread is another place to post fanfic?

Yes. We post three prompts a day and people write drabbles (100 to 300 words) in response to the prompts. There is some really terrific writing going it...the "fest" started on January 31st and we just passed 100 pages.

BTW, are you from Maine?  I ask because I went up there with my sister a few years ago.  We visited Freeport, Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park.  I loved it!  If the winters weren't so harsh I'd consider moving there.

Yes, I work in Portland and live just down the road in Westbrook. We've been here since 1980. And the harsh winters...well, that's a story we've cooked up to keep people away.  ;) The weather is really not that bad. I lived in Chicago for 2 years and that was alot worse!

Hi there Dagi,

I know what you're saying, and no I wasn't offended.  I too think that sex is a beautiful expression, and we're damn lucky that we have it.  And it's true that it has often been maligned in our culture.  Also, people who do the maligning often do so by insinuating that sex is dirty, etc.

But they say it's dirty as if that's a bad thing.  I'm a country boy, and I'm an avid amateur gardener.  I've planted plants and flowers all around my house, and I put in a vegetable garden in my back yard.  Dirt is not something that's bad in my view.  I love dirt.   :D  And when I suggest that sex is dirty, I ean it in the best possible way.  There's something so basic about sex, like planting a seed in the ground.  It's very earthy, and you might have to wash your hands after--along with other things--but that doesn't make it bad, and whoever thinks it does has been cooped up in a sanitized apartment in the city way too long.

I hope that helps you understand what I mean when I say I love it when the boys do nasty shit to each other.   :P  I'm speaking as the guy from rural West Virginia who just put humus laced with dung on his tomato plants.

Gary


Now I really KNOW that I love you, Gary.

I´ve been thinking and worrying about my post all day long, and I am so relieved now.

You know, thank goddess I have not been cooped up in a sanitized apartment in the city for too long, and earth under my fingernails is something I am

really used to, thanks to my garden. I too love the earthy, natural aspect of sex. So I´m glad to hear that you don´t use the word subconsciousely in a

bad sense. Really, I should have known that before you told me, honey, I can tell by the way you write about our boys. I was in an odd mood, and I´m

a very spontaneous girl, that´s why I sometimes say/write things without thinking it over.

A big hug !

P.S.  100-300 words, huh?  Seems I'm always over the limit.   :-\

A "true" drabble is 100 words exactly. We have a bit more leeway and yes, people do go over, but we try to stay to the limit, as much as possible.
