Returning to Brokeback
« on: January 08, 2009, 02:35:37 pm »
Hi everyone! :)

I just registered to be able to participate in Syncronised DVD watching on January 10th.

Since I'm here, just want to give you the link to my facfic.

It starts in the evening between FNIT and SNIT, and it ends with the end of 1963. The end is hopeful!  ::)

Hope that this short story will reach your heart!

Here it is:

http://loreent.livejournal.com/

-Just pay attention to the order, cos the first part is down, and the second one is up! 

See you on 10th!

Love,
Loreen

Today I posted another chapter.

It is about Jack's arrival to LF in 1963. and his tender relationship with his Ma. This is my vision what could have possibly happen when he arrived home.

To be honest, it was you guys here who inspired me to write it. More specific, it is the thread about the shirts who gave me an idea, and I really believe that you'd like this part. It could be read as a separate from the first two.

I'd like to hear some feedbacks.  :)

Thanks! ;D

Hi,

OK, that's the link for the 2. part of the 6. chapter.

The chapter deals with Ennis's and Jack's "normal lives"... There's a little surprise in the end...

A huge thanks goes to MyPrivateJack and Flwrchild for advising and editing, respectively. Really appreciate your help friends!

Synopsis: The story starts during SNIT as my personal wish to fulfill the blanks in the movie. After cca 10 years or angst and suffer, in the end Ennis &Jack's sweet life is even sweeter than the chocolate (LOL) !Some surprises, some romantics, some sex and a lots of emotions...

A big thanks for everyone who's still with me and this story...

No problem about that! I only hope that you feel better now!  :)

Today I started to post my new story "Only when you're sure"

I won't be posting each chapter here, so this is only the information for those who want to read it and the link to the first chapter:

http://loreent.livejournal.com/11461.html

It is an easy, modern, au!au story. Ennis is a widower and Jack is an openly gay person.

I thank to bcatjr for editing   :-* and r_o_l_i_e for the manips.   :-* They've really been great!

I'll try to post weekly, so if there's any interest for the story, you have the information now. Hope you like.
