I wonder if anybody with a better memory than mine can help me?

Not so long ago in one of these threads, someone posted links, in the correct order, to all Royandronnies stories.

I meant to save them, but now I can't find them.... :-\

Anyone here remember what thread it was?

sorry Sonja, I don´t remember


I just thought I´d share my top 15 stories.
On my desktop I have a folder containing 15 stories, all of which I´ve read  several times - some of them what feels like countless times.


Brokeback Redemption by Victopet
Policy of Truth by Jacksharmonica
Lake Geneva by B73
The Wolf and the Thunderbird by Debutante 9
Union Pacific by B73
Somebody New by Jenna
The Portrait of a Farmer by B73
Shades of Grey by Midwest girl
Zero At the Bone by Madlori
In Plain Sight by Victopet
Propinquity by Lolitaray
The Moments Between by Lolitaray
Mason Dixon by B73
If I Asked by Amy
Ride With the Wind by BJCTR


and simply because I have too much time on my hands at the moment, I just created a top 5 list. This was hard!

Policy of Truth
Brokeback Redemption
Portrait of a Farmer
The Wolf and the Thunderbird
Zero at the Bone
Shades of Grey


(ok, I know it´s six stories, but I just couldn´t narrow it down to five :P)

Hello again, Sason.

Was this what you meant? Oddly enough, I just this minute read it.

Is anyone else reading "A Way With Words" by soulan?  I highly recommend it.  It appears to have a small readership, which seems a shame to me since I think the writing is top-notch.  The structure of the story is unique, which may be intimidating to some people, but I don't find it confusing at all.  The author's journal is friends-locked (just to keep her kids out, as she explains), but here is the link where you can comment to be friended.  She also gives a more detailed description and explanation of the story and provides the links:

Yep, that's what I meant! Thanks a lot, although somewhat belated....  :-\

Strangely enough, this didn't show on my "new replies to your posts"-list until now.

And, even more strangely, I thought about it just the other day, that I never found out about those fics.....

And now BM suddenly shows me that I had the reply waiting for me all this time!!

Thanks again, Miniangel!!

Thanks for the recommendation Marie!

I haven't read AWWW, but the rest of Kim's writing is superb and outstanding, so I'm not surprised you like this one.

I esp like her "Enough Time", but they are all awesome!!
Chapte one is here: http://soulan.livejournal.com/10820.html

She always finds yet another way to give her stories a unique sturcture!
It amazes me every time!

It´s stupid because I know I have asked before. But again I´ve misplaced the name

What´s the name of the story where Jack, married and living in Texas, by chance picks up Brokeback Mountain, and later travels to Wyoming to find out if Ennis really exists.

That would be "Lead me to your Door" by the brilliant marakeshsparrow. An absolutly fantastic story that I have read many times. It starts here.  http://marakeshsparrow.livejournal.com/13595.html#cutid1
