My all time favorite is "Somebody New" by Jenna.   Unfortunately C&D orders have made it unavailable.  This is closely followed by anything written by cynical21.   SN is AU, the sweet life.  CYN writes pure canon, hard to read (emotional factors) but so REAL and true to life.

Do you have links to these? Is cynical21 on livejournal?

Thanks. Ian

One of my favourites too. I have read that story many, many times.

My list of favorite stories are

Brokeback Redemption by Vicopet
Somebody New by Jenna
The Wolf and the Thunderbird by Debutantee 9
Zero at the Bone by MadLori

Bookends

This story is only a fragment, about 4 chapters, but is worth reading.  It's a double-universe story, part canon and part AU, with Ennis and Jack in the AU helping raise Jack's granddaughter.  In the canon part, the granddaughter meets Ennis many years after the end of the canon story: Ennis has been living up in Lightning Flat, taking care of Jack's mother until her death. 

It's worth reading for a thoroughly delightful description of Jack's young granddaughter (who calls Ennis and Jack "Grumpy" and "Buddy") if nothing else.

The author of Somebody New, Jenna, made the decision to take her entire story down and lock her LJ....back in 2006 (or maybe early 2007) as I recall. I do not believe it is available right now.

I don't think it was canon. I think it was a Jack and Ennis get together eventually story, although they had their ups and downs getting there.

People have copies that they are sharing privately (I don't). I am assuming that is where Ian got his? It is not available publicly. The rumor was (although I don't believe Jenna ever came out and confirmed this) is that she received a cease & desist letter from Annie Proulx's publishers. Since other fanfic authors also received C&D letters, the rumor is probably true.
