Hi Jane,

Thanks for this recommendation!  I just finished reading it tonight (it seems I'm a bit slow to this party...), but now I'm curious about what your favorite romantic moment is! 

cheers
Amanda

Awright, I'll spill it, it's the part about the photo of the two boys.  I thought that little story, and the just trying to visualize the photo is very romantic and lovely.  So nice of their friend to send them that little surprise picture!   :-*  I have kept my eye open for two shots of Jack and Ennis to photoshop together, but the two I have don't really work, at least not that I can visualize.  Jack is in the right pose, but his expression is all wrong, and Ennis' expression doesn't really match either.  I dunno, maybe it's just me, what do you think?

Then the clouds opened up and God said, "I hate you, Alfafa."

Hi Jane,
Well the way I picture it, Jack is seated behind Ennis... maybe Jack is on a log and Ennis is sitting with his back to him between his legs and Jack is sort of leaning forward and around to kiss his cheek. I don't know why I see it that way (maybe I'll have to go re-read that part of the story).  In the two pics you have it looks like they'd be side by side.

It really is a very sweet moment.  Thanks again for the recommendation.

Yeah, I think you've got it, and the two pics that I have do not work, oh well...  I love visualizing it the way you said though!   :-*  I can see it in my head just fine,  ;D

Hi Jane,

Thanks for starting this thread, I'm always looking for recs of really good E & J fics :D  May I be allowed to add one of my own personal favourites?

White Picket Fences and Apple Trees:

It is now into it's second part but the first part is complete.

Can I also add my name to the list of people who enjoyed Helen's delightful Christmas and New Year story - being Scottish it was a real treat to read it - the locations and accents were spot on!  :)

Hello Merrobot!

Thanks again to everyone for their contributions to this thread.  Yea Jack and Ennis!   :D

Ok, two recs again this time, cause one of them is a one-shot and it takes only five mins to read, but it is good and I saved it....

I definitely second Just Another New Kid in Town  :D
‘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 really enjoyed 'Just Another New Kid in Town," too. It's funny and sweet and not too sad. I really like how Jack & Ennis's loving relationship develops, and how they explore everything with each other. cc33

The author of Cabin Fever, pairofdeuces, was in the middle of writing a really long story called Lost  that seems to have staled out a while back.  It was up to chapter 17 and can be found on pairofdeuces live journal mixed in with Cabin Fever.  I was wondering if anyone knows about this story or if they've heard any rumblings about it being continued.  I got sort of hooked on it.  It's much, much different than Cabin Fever.

Of course there are the stories:

For a Little While, Some Silver Lining and Over the Bridge (these 3 are a trilogy- all completed) and Nobody's Angel (in progress and worth the wait... and usually updated pretty frequently) by maidenofthesea.  They're all really, really good.

And the classic 48 Days, which is a great one for those wanting completed stories... And, for which there is now a promised sequel (or so they say).
