The Short Leash, by Cynical21

An absolutely beautiful cannon piece in three parts (complete). It fills in a "missing moment" and is meant to explore what Jack might have meant by the "short fuckin' leash" Ennis kept him on.

‘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 will definitely check this one out. No one does canon like Cynical21. Just thinking about her story, The Greatest Love gives me shivers.

Have you seen the sequel to The Greatest Love? It's called "Night Fire- the last ember" and I swear, as fan fic goes, this is the most beautiful thing I have ever read. Annie herself would be proud.
