Another fanfic I enjoy:

For A Little While
Some Silver Lining
Over The Bridge

They belong together and are all written by the same author: maidenofthesea. FALW and SSL are complete, OTB just started and has three chapters yet.

Synopsis respectivaly author's note to the first one, For A Little While:

I was inspired by Ennis' comment concerning the good time they had that one year at Don Wroe's cabin. That one year being 1980 in my world, the year chosen at random since no year was mentioned in either the book nor the movie.

Here is the link to the first chapter of For A Little While:

And here's link to the last chapter of For A Little While. I post this link because it contains links to all chapters of FALW and I didn't find them on maidenofthesea's journal page.

At maidenofthesea's journal you can find the links to all chapters of Some Silver Lining and Over The Bridge:
http://maidenofthesea.livejournal.com/


And especially for Melissa, here is the first chapter of Over The Bridge:

For all others, please read For A Little While at first, if you haven't already.

I wanted to second this recommendation.... This is also a very good fic, IMO particularly For a Little While.  I won't spoil it for anyone, but there is one particular moment that absolutley made me gasp and made my heart skip a few beats... I still think about it occasionally out of nowhere.  It's a good one!
‘cause the truth is, I already give him everythin’ I got to give, more than I ever even knew I had; ‘n it all for him, all of it, him who is my brother, my father, my child, my friend, my lover, my heart, my soul; my Ennis.

I think I know which moment you mean, I think I missed my stop on the tram to work!  :laugh: :laugh:

I thought all of the 'developments' were fascinating.

Enjoy.

I really enjoyed this chapter too... I thought the way she handled Jack's reaction to the particular situation was very well done! I can't wait for the next update...

This one ends with a little cliffhanger. No angst, but a curiosity-cliff  :)

I am!

I'm really enjoying it. I loved her other stories, but didn't make the connection that it was the same author - dur!

  • Heath, we'll never forget you.
I am reading Nobody's Angel, and I love it! It's in my top three right now, along with The Laramie Saga and Shades of Grey.  I haven't read her earlier stories yet, although if they are anywhere near as good as Nobody's Angel, I will move them to the top of my must-read list!

I'm always amazed at the original ideas that BBM writers come up with.  I loved The Outsiders when I was a kid, but never would have thought to base a BBM story in that world.  But it works!  I'm going to reread the book while waiting for updates to Nobody's Angel.

I was wondering if Nobody's Angel should have its own thread, or if we should just discuss it here.  It's a totally different AU than the world of For a Little While, Some Silver Lining, and Over the Bridge.  Not sure of the preferred way to handle this.

 
What Jack remembered and craved in a way he could neither help nor understand was the time that distant summer on Brokeback when Ennis had come up behind him and pulled him close, the silent embrace satisfying some shared and sexless hunger.   -Annie Proulx (Icon by alighttofollow)

I think it should have a seperate thread!  :)

I had to get used to the story, but I like it now, I am wondering when she will be updating...

You know, I wasn't sure I would like Nobody Angel, and it took me the 2nd
chapter to get hooked....  but hooked I am.
I would read anything she writes. 
Her au's are soooooo good.  Must reads.
I've read them all multiple times !

I am hooked too, especially after chapter 6, that was so good, I love how she works out the characters and how Jack and Ennis in this story interact... I love how Jack is pulling Ennis into finding out more about literature and art. He cares so much.

Yes he does.  I love young Ennis and Jack.  I feel so sorry for Ennis in this story.
He has a hard life, just like Ennis of BBM.  I think this one is worse though.

I'll miss this story, but think the timing and ending are well-done.

Maidenofthesea's Live Journal has been deleted. Does anyone have copies of these works that they'd be willing to share? They sound really interesting.

Yes, OTB is the third part of the trilogy. I have, in chronological order:
FALW
SSL
OTB

And three one-shots from the same universe, also chronologically:
So Many Rivers
Wild Flowers
Reception


Since you already have FALW and SSL, I will send you OTB and the three one shots, which I've saved in one folder. I'll send them as PDFs.

Check your email! :)

I had no idea it was a triology. Oh boy, I got a whole lot of reading to do since I´ve just only started on FALW :) Do you think you have time to mail me the other two parts of the triology plus the extras?
