        Yes  to Madlori...I have been on the edge of my seat from the first chapter..It is only getting more intense.
I love your writing and your stories..This one is particularly compelling..I love it, and thank you for bringing it
to us..I am so happy you continue to have the interest in and muse to write in this fanfic...I think that
Jack and Ennis are such archetypes as to lend themselves to stories to be made in every kind of universe...
thank you again.          janice

Jack:  I could kick your ass any day of the week.
Ennis:  Then the weeks where you live must have a No Fuckin' Way Day.

SPOILERS








This may have been my favorite chapter yet.  Chock full of all kinds of great stuff - hot and tender and funny and heart-wrenching.  I really like the pacing of D's emotional progression.  And then we have the really intriguing plot lines. 

“Or maybe,” D said, thinking out loud, “Petros sold his services ta somebody else who was willin ta pay more’n the brothers do.”

“You mean…maybe he wasn’t going to take me to the brothers?”

“No way ta know now. But if he was workin fer my blackmailers instead a the brothers…that is troublin news.”


OMG - this is what's been scaring me (on top of everything else) that there's no clear line of demarcation between both "sets" of bad guys - they may have different motivations, but they're equally dangerous and you're never quite sure who's who or what's what.....really great stuff.

SPOILERS...



I agree that this was a fantastic chapter.  And, it's really interesting to see how much Jack and D are opening up to one another in terms of communication... Jack didn't hesitate to finally openly express his feelings about D... and D did not try to shield Jack from the extent of his knowledge and activities regarding protecting Jack and hunting down the different sets of bad guys.  It will be interesting to see when the final step in communication happens and D finally expresses his feelings (verbally) and gives up his name too.

         I have been reading so much of Lori's writing for so long, until I feel I am running out of ways to express
my love for her stories..My list of adjetives are starting to sound trite. 
          This story is wonderful and the characters are so well defined..The connection they hav is great and the excitment is
teriffic too...Cant wait to get the next chapter,,but as you said, I hate to see it come to an end....glad she is planning
a sequel also....go go Lori....
