Review posted on ff.

This is such a great chepter; you range so freely through a bunch of emotions, and integrate the weather so beautifuolly in the action.  I NEVER CRY--hardly...I'm crying.

Also added your story to me favorites, in spite of--you know what (not your story).

Leslie, thanks for the beautiful and touching chapter.  You have addressed many emotions here, and got me all emotional from reading the last time Ennis and Hal together, and Ennis and Jack's conversation after that.  Simply beautiful!

He turned back to Hal, whose eyes were open and seemed brighter and bluer than they had ever looked before. Ennis smiled at him. “Hal, yer eyes are blue like Jack’s,” he said. “I love blue eyes.”

“Yer eyes are brown,” whispered Hal. “I had a friend who had brown eyes.”


When I read this tonight, just as I read it, there was an amazing rainstorm in New York, lightning and thunder. And then it cleared, just as Hal died.

Beautiful story, Leslie.
