I thought this was a particularly great update.  Things just seem so complicated right now.  And, it's so interesting to see that J & E's relationship has reached a really mature level in terms of looking out for one another and in working through emotional issues without really flying off the handle.

Well said, Amanda.  I agree.  I'm proud of Jack for deciding to go to court with Ennis.  I know how hard that will be for him.  And I'm proud of Ennis, too.  I think it may turn out to be one of his finest hours.

Another thing I'd like to mention about this good update is that in this chapter I think Lori really, really nails the correct voices for Ennis and Jack in the dialogue passages.  She's good at writing dialogue for them in general, but as I was reading this one it just kept striking me how right-on she was with some of their turns of phrases, etc.  I could really hear the original Ennis and Jack talking that way.

Hey Buds,

I feel like it's been quite a long time since we've heard from Lori.  Has anyone heard any news about TCJ?

Looks like no new chapters have been posted after Chapter 39.  :(

    Lori said she was going to complete HI, but she hasn't done so.  She is supposedly writing a sequel to
Zero at the Bone.   But she said she wouldn't post any of it, until it was completed.  I have a feeling she is probably focusing on her other fan fiction now.

Well, as far as I understand, HI is complete... it's TCJ we're waiting for.  And, I thought that she was going to try to write the entirety of the remainder of TCJ before posting any more of it and also the entirety of the Zero sequel before posting (instead of posting chapter by chapter in installments).

I could be totally wrong about this, but I was under the impression this was the plan. 

Lori!  If you drop by it would be great to hear how things are going!

That's the way I understood it too. I've actually just started re-reading HI. I've just started getting back into reading, and there seemed to be no better way of getting back into reading than reading about 'our boys'.  ;D
