Where I come from it's "Everybody and his uncle."

Up here, it's "everyone and his brother (pronounced 'brothah')".

From "Woostah"?

Iīve been reading quite a lot lately. I just finished a story I hadnīt read before; Nobodyīs Angel by Maiden o fthe sea. Kinda of a "Brokeback" meets "Rebel Without a Cause" meets "Outsiders" meets "Romeo and Juliet" story with Ennis as a "greaser" and Jack as a "sock" set in the 1950īs.
It was really good and Iīve done much else besides working and reading for the past few days.

Am about to start on another story by Maiden of the sea now called "Able Fires". Letīs hope itīs equally good!


Where did you find copies of Maiden of the Seas stories like that?  The only ones I have are the 3 stories in the Sequel of "For a Little While".  I didn't know she had written anything else.

I've done quite a lot of reading this week as I've been home from work sick. These are three new stories that I especially love and recommend. They are all being updated frequently.

I love Sandcritīs sequel to One Little Thing called Headlong
Ennis works as a ranch hand one summer on the Twist farm and Jack (who is younger) falls head over heels. Angsty and sweet.
Both stories can be found here
http://sandscrit.livejournal.com/

and then it's Annabirminghamīs sweet and smoking hot office romance Office Politics
http://annabirmingham.livejournal.com/

and finally Heathyluvīs new story True Colors
Ennis is a dork, Jack a popular jock in a highschool setting. Itīs hot.

I also did a bit of writing and posted an entry for the bmm_drabble Valentineīs Day Challenge (theme: secret crush) . Itīs called 31 years & 9 Days and If you wanna read it you can do so over on my LJ

Iīve been re-reading "Portrait of a Farmer" - again. Itīs breathtaking.
How can somebody actually write this good? Iīve read it I donīt know how
many times now, and itīs flawless. Reading it always makes me wish I were
a painter, cause then Iīd paint Ennis the way Jack sees him in this story 8)

Hi! Iīm with you on "Portrait of a Farmer". Iīve read that story....countless times.
And Iīd love to see the photographs Jack takes of Ennis under that bright Californian sun, to see what it is that Jack sees.
Or perhaps it is himself that he sees, reflected back at him from Ennisīs dark eyes.

Pictures from that time in American history is always sad but interesting to look at.
