Yay!
I think, more than anything, what I am setting out to accomplish with this is that both of them have something to learn AND something to teach.  And that neither way is right or wrong.  It just happens to be what you need to do to find your place in the world (and it's not always the place you're born into -- sometimes it takes some searching.)

Yes, I can see that clearly in the story.  I really love that give-and-take, that balance - both their "educations" will go far beyond sex. 

Thanks,
Marie

I'm not sure if you're also reading Brokeback Redemption, Vic just replied to my lj comment that the next update will be BR.  I am really excited about this news, I miss BR so much.

I never really completely got caught up in that story, so I am a bit sad she won't be updating IPS first, but I understand, the muse does what it does! I literally check my lj every day to see if there is an IPS update, so I guess I can stop doing that for a while! Great that she is still writing though!  :)

Yay!  Thanks for the heads-up, yb!

And, yep, Mel, I saw it!   :laugh:


SPOILERS







Great talk between J&E - it was very realistic to me, and very touching, also.  Ennis is so intrinsically honest - I think that will end up being his salvation (eventually - he's got a long road ahead of him). 

Velda - I can't say I was too terribly surprised by her outburst - I've sensed her resentment, frustration and anger - but I am anxious to hear more of her story. Why can't she have a rumspringa?  I like that I'm able to feel so sorry for her, but, at the same time, find her kind of annoying.  I like that complexity. 

Okay, these two have to find a way to ditch Velda and Alma - they've both got more learning to do!
