"Fragile" by fridayblues
« on: August 27, 2008, 12:52:25 pm »
Fridayblues, the author of "You and Me and a Dog Named Flea" as well as some other great stories, has started a new story entitled "Fragile."  Here is her author's note:

Author’s note: I still have fun writing about Jack and Ennis (guess you can see:) so here goes the new story. But I don't want to step into my own shadow when it comes to writing so this story will be pretty serious, and very different from both Wiser Time and Flea. I want to see how far I can go with more intense and complicated plot. But it still is a love story, only on the rough side, and with a hint of suspense. I really hope you will give it a try.

She also mentioned that:  Some main events in this not-so original story is based on the Japanese novel/series “Bara no Nai Hanaya” written by Nojima Shinji.

There are two chapters so far:

Chapter 1 - "White Lilies"  http://fridayblues.livejournal.com/20349.html#cutid1
Chapter 2 -"Pink Hydrangeas"  http://fridayblues.livejournal.com/22633.html#cutid1

I can highly recommend it.  It's well-written, which is no surprise, with an original premise and a unique tone.
