Hi I'm new to this forum and relatively new to reading BBM fanfiction. I have only read Human Interest and was hoping to read the other classics that you guys have mentioned in the discussion threads. Unfortunately, most of them are no longer available online.

Can any of you please email me some of the favorites, such as those by B73, midwest girl, jenna, as well as Policy of Truth and The Wolf and the Thunderbird?

I feel like I'm missing out a great deal without having read them! Thank you so much in advance for any help!

My email address: [email protected]
Ill send you some of my favs. Enjoy!

Its been a while since Ive had time to really dive into a fan fic, but lately Ive had more time available so Ive re-read many of the classics. Yesterday I read The Cabin and today I re-read Lake Geneva. Everytime I read a fan fiction I really like, I fall even more in love with Jack and Ennis.

Does anyone remember the title of this story?
Its about Ennis and Jack at a summercamp for kids. They are both instructors - Jack a swimming instructor and Ennis a riding instructor. They end up sharing the same bunkhouse. I think there is something about Ennis making a wooden spoon for Jack in it.

Hm..... I haven't read it, but I vaguely recognize the plot. Isn't it one of Sienna's?

Could that be "Middle of Nowhere"? Sorry, I don't have time to double-check, but that sounds like it could be it. Hope I got the name right! It's not a Sienna story. poppyhoney, I think, or something like that.

I was thinking that your description sounds a lot like Middle of Nowhere by poppyhoney.  If you've not read it, I recommend it.... It's good!

The one difference that I recall is that in Middle of Nowhere, Ennis is a woodworking instructor (if I'm remembering it correctly).  But, yes Jack is a swimming instructor and they're camp instructors in the same bunkhouse.

Yes, it was Middle of Nowhere by Poppyhoney. Thanks everyone!

It is a great fic. I have read a couple of times before but still I forgot the title of the damn thing :)
This time Ill save to my hd O0


And youre right, Amanda - Ennis is  mainly a woodworking instructor.

Has anyone heard any news about the story The Bus Stop?  I was really enjoying that one, but there hasn't been an update for a long time.
