I hope you are writing, because this is one of my favourite stories. 

LOL - and a friend pointed out to me a couple of weeks ago that Marge Innavera and talkstocoyottes were one and the same!   ::)

Hey, coffeecat beat me to it!  I finally posted those chapters yesterday after work, and by the time I was done, getting 3 hours of sleep before going back to work was just too tempting to resist.  Here are the links to the two chapters:

I'm FAST Marcia! Here's the rest of the info for those new to your story.


Title: Gift of Exile, by talkstocoyotes

Disclaimer: Ennis, Jack and all the other characters in the original Brokeback Mountain story are the creations of Annie Proulx and I derive no income from this fanfiction story. Most of the settings exist in RL.

Warning: While I love AUs this is not one of those, as the tags in the header indicate.  A metaphysical subplot is a central part of the story.

Synopsis: After returning from Brokeback, Ennis helps his youngest daughter move on into a new life, with some practical advice from David.

Thank you!

I edited that two or three times after making exasperated comments about those  tags in the header. Some fans of "Miserable!Ennis" didn't make it past the third chapter of this story, just as well.....

hehehe Miserable!Ennis fans... well there are so many of them, and so few of us Happy!Ennis fans.  I'll be back with comments!  (sorry, had my head down writing like a maniac!)

Thanks for the recommendation!

Since I've been so pokey about posting new chapters, here's a synopsis of the plot so far:

Synopsis: Attending his daughter's wedding as promised, Ennis discovers that Jack might be physically dead but isn't very far away and is able to contact him. At the reception he meets a guest from Minnesota, Curt's second cousin David, and discovers that David is gay and has also lost a partner. Ennis and David go horseback riding together over the next few days, and forge a tentative connection that continues to develop when David starts calling Ennis regularly.

Ennis sees more of both his daughters in the next months, and gets a letter from Mrs. Twist telling him that Jack's father has died and asking him to carry out Jack's wishes to have his ashes scattered on Brokeback Mountain. Ennis spends an afternoon with Mrs. Twist, learning a few important details about Jack's life, and then heads up to one of their old campsites on Brokeback where he and Jack enjoy a brief reunion. A few months later, Ennis helps Jenny to move to Denver, discovering that big cities don't agree with him; and then faces his second winter without Jack.

The future of Ennis' job is uncertain, but he spends Christmas with both his daughters. Later, an announcement from Alma Junior and difficulties at the Coffeepot ranch signal still more changes in his life. Faced with three equally bad choices, he accepts an offer that David has made.

In the meantime, Jack explores the world he’ll be inhabiting while waiting for Ennis, meets and recognizes some old friends and anticipates changes coming up after Ennis’ move.
