I've never read this. Since it's still available, I'll give it a try. What genre is it?



Is an AU!AU story

   " Looking Back"
       Sienata's newest story.  She is writing with the intent of a future publication.  It is moving along very slowly, but it
has much to tell, with many details.  Its written about the teen years.  Its Ennis in the future at some kind of turning point'
and he is keeping a journal.  Starts with them in hi school...  Very good.  But the chapters are shorter than her usual fare.
       She says she has no idea yet how long it will be.  So if you commit to it.  Be ready for a long long ride.

Cool. I enjoyed BFF tremendously, so I'll definitely check this one out.

Re: General Discussion and Recs; Shades of Grey by Midwest-girl

I bumped the Shades of Grey thread too, but thought I'd post here as well.This story has been well received and reviewed, and I'd like to read it. I loved Midwest-girls other fic "If I Asked" and thought I'd give this a go. I never got around to it because I guess I was a little uptight about AU/AU. I've since read a few of those and liked them alot. Unfortunately her livejournal account is gone, so I was wondering and hoping someone here may have saved in in a pdf or something and could email it to me.

Thanks. Ian

Ohiomyown (Judy) recomended "Passion of Ennis del Mar" to me, so Ive spend a couple of days reading through it. Thanks Judy, I enjoyed it.


I was wondering if anybody here is reading IL2Walks story "Tenderfoot". Im thinking about giving it a go, and it would interesting to hear someone elses opinion on it first.

I don't think I've ever heard of "Passion of Ennis del Mar."  Is it an old fic?  I did recently read "Passion of a Saint." 

I'm reading "Tenderfoot" and I'm really enjoying it.  It's funny and light-hearted and has a kind of madcap quality to it that's very entertaining.  But there's depth to the characters as well, and it's interesting to watch them discover that there is more to each other than what meets the eye.

Youre right - I screwed up the title. "Passion of a Saint" was the fic I was refering to.


I started on Tenderfoot last night, and read it all. I agree, there is more to the characters than what meets the eye. I like it.

Ah, okay!  But, actually "Passion of Ennis del Mar" would've made a good title for it, too!  LOL.  I enjoyed that as well.  The author was very knowledgable about the subject matter and was able to bring a real authenticity to all the characters.

Im rereading B73s "Union Pacific". I think its my third or fourth time by now.
Im nearing the ending, and as always I can hardly stand to read anymore.
I love this fic, but its just so hard to read at times
