Thanks, yb!


SPOILERS

That was exceptionally well done - sublime, in fact.  As much as I enjoyed Ennis's "lesson" I must say that I'm looking forward to what Ennis can eventually teach Jack - his "lessons" will be of a different kind, for sure - probably not so obviously "lessons" at all - but no less important, I don't think. 

Will Jack leave today - and will this be the start of their "separation" period?  I can't figure out what will happen next.

I concur with every word you said.  They are so worth waiting for.

From Vic's response to one of the comments, I get the feeling that Jack is not leaving yet.

Chapter 21 of IPS is up!

Excellent pacing.  Despite the awkwardness, these two can't help but fall into a comfortable rhythm as they start to open up with, and learn from, each other. An intriguing conversation about Kurt - and an intriguing and troubling conversation with Randall.

And, yes, it looks like Jack will be staying with Ennis a while longer!

I was so happy tp see IPS  :D I  had been wondering what was to become of it so-yippee. That cliff hanger we were left on was high and heady-one of the hottest chaps ever written. Yikes! I am truly curious about how this story will resolve itselft.

I hadn't expected this update. What a wonderful surprise!

I agree about the pacing. It feels right, very comfortable, just like Jack feels with Ennis. How sad that Ennis didn't understand how anybody could be comfortable around him  :-\.

And the conversation about Kurt had me thinking too. Was there any reference earlier in the story that Jack might have met Kurt? I don't think so...

Maybe I should go reread a few chapters  :)

This is a great read!

Authors' Note:  Hi again.  Here's yet another update to IPS.  I'm finding that writing shorter chapters is easier to manage, so I am trying something new.  Yes, there's still more after this.
