Hi there Retropian. I just thought I might point you in the direction of another of Victopetīs stories; Brokeback Redemption.
Itīs one of my absolute favorite fan fics. Itīs darker than IPS, well-written and features Ennis as a man wrongly convicted for the murder of his wife. He meets Jack, another inmate, in prison. Itīs sort of a mix between the TV-series Oz, and the movies The Shawshank Redemption and The Fugitive. I recomend it.

Yes, I saw that on her lovejournal too. I'll check it out since I'm enjoying IPS so much. An Amish Ennis just slays me! ;D

Recently, I was on her livejournal checking for updates (none unfortunatley), but did see she had commented that she has not abandoned IPS. I commented that I was glad to know she planned on continuing the story and she let me know she's still working on it, but it's slow going. So patience please! ;D

Good news!  Thanks, Ian  :)

Some great news from victopet:

New Job Alert!
I changed jobs this week and there's much less stress and craziness. It looks like I'm going to finally, finally, finally have more time to write. I'm hoping to get back to IPS shortly -- if anyone is still interested.

Who are Jack and Ennis again?

No - not an update yet! Sorry! :)


But Victopet writes that will post a new chapter this week.
Iīm extremely excited about this. I must have read IPS at least ten times by now.
I love their first encounter, the way Jack teases Ennis with temptations during their time in the city, and later their growing bond during Jackīs stay at the Amish farm. There is a strong ying/yang theme here, I think. Cop!Jack and Amish!Ennis are totally different from one another, both of them extremes. But together, they both seem more balanced, more themselves.


Iīm checking Victopetīs livejournal several times a day :)

Great minds, Monika!  I was just about to post what Vic said most recently:

Thanks!
Thank you so much for all your super-encouraging comments. I haven't been involved with the fandom as much as I would have liked this past year, so I'm psyched that so many people still want to read. I've spent some time this weekend re-immersing myself in Jack and Ennis's Amish world and writing, writing, writing. I'm aiming to post Chapter 36 of IPS this week and I hope to finally finish the story. Stay tuned and thanks for your continued support!

Vic

I'm excited about an update, too - I love what you said:  But together, they both seem more balanced, more themselves.  Yes, I think that's exactly right.  In fact, I think that's a key element for any J&E story.
