Is anyone else reading this story? I wanted to post a new thread for it (well, really I think all of Maggie's stories should have their own threads...)

Be warned, it isn't for everyone, but I love it. It's an AU!AU cannon mix with Jack as an employee at Ennis' painting business. They become a little more than boss/employee though  ;)

It starts here http://b73.livejournal.com/52764.html

‘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.

Hey there, I've been reading this too. I really like it. I know that it's not everyone's cup of tea, and that there has been some heated discussion about the nature of the Ennis/Jack relationship and their... well... 'terms of endearment' for want of a better phrase. However, if we we all liked the same things the world would be much duller.

I've only recently discovered Maggie's work and I think that she is a wonderful writer, although reading her stories, beautiful though they are, is often as painful as watching/reading the original.

I like the idea that her Ennis and Jack are revisitations of the original characters, reconnecting through time.

I do hope this one has an upbeat ending.

Yeah Mandy, wish I had done that too! And the paint colours too, I know there's a chart now but there have been chapters after the chart was put up. I'm going to go and write them all down. They are SO brilliant  :)

I know it may sound weird and crazy but I LOVE DMP so much it sometimes just hurts.

that's not weird at all, I feel the same way... well, maybe we're both weird  ::) the paint colors are hillarious... last chapter it was kool aid purple  :o

I'm off to read ch. 40 now, I just saw it was posted!! Can you believe she's up to 40 chapters?  :D
