Has anybody read her new AU Nobody's Angel yet? It's up to 5 chapters now.

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.

Over The Bridge is completed today. Here's the link to the last chapter and epilogue:

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

Hi --

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.

Thanks!
