Plot? Who needs plot? This was fffing amazing! I'm sooooo proud of Ennis, he really has dismantled that (completely unnecessary) emotionally protective, brick wall that he'd built between himself, Jack, reality and the truth.
My heart is fit to burst.
Never say never about that parade though Ennis; just sayin'.

"God almighty damn, that man is mine. No s*** and fer real." You're not wrong there Jack. Not wrong at all.

"...two men. Ain't natural."
"Feels natural t'me."
"It ain't. Polyester ain't natural neither, don't mean it ain't real." When circles make sense.

"He saw me,...and he was the only one who ever did." Enough said.

"He was mine first." Every heart in the room broke.
"Weren't enough t'take my man, now you gotta take my daughter, too." Alma must feel raw and ransacked; even the best burglars usually leave something behind. Not Jack it seems.
"Why'd you leave him if you wanted him so goddamned bad?"
"Because I wasn't you." That is the real source of the Nile. Alma has tried for sixteen years to make peace with the fact, she could never be what Ennis truly wanted - Jack.

This was another touching and insightful update.
I love how you always thread the present to the past; we as readers are always within spitting distance of the original story. We are encouraged to see how much "the boys" have matured and developed over time. Age and circumstance tied them in seemingly impossible knots, in their earlier years; but faith, patience, courage and determination proved that even the knottiest of lives can be unravelled.
I also think that your portrayal of Alma Snr as bitter, fragile, resentful and confused is the most realistic one I've ever read.

Beyond sweet. I loved this.
If only everyone had a partner that listened that intently.
Methinks everyone deserves a little Jack in their lives (sigh).

I love this story. You mentioned more chapters and a fabled link to these chapters but I do not know how to find it! I can't leave this story on this note. I'm sorry to break the even 500 reviews but I just have to let you know this story is amazing and I want to read all of it!

I'm actually sort of hoping that Ennis' brother and sister turn out to be supportive... But you'll probably have to update so we can find out!
Read through the prequel and this story in one go, it's just that good. Hope you choose to continue this story soon! 3

So I just finished binge reading this story along with Human Interest, and I couldn't help but notice that it seems to have been left off on a bit of a cliff hanger and hasn't been updated since 2011. You said in chapter 28 that you had some more chapters written on your Live Journal account, but when I checked your homepage the link was gone. It seems a shame. This is such a wonderful story. I love how it just goes about their daily lives. It's hard to find well written stores like this. Do you have any plans to continue, or has it been officially discontinued?

No authors not? :'(
Looking foreward to more. This Jackie business is killing me.
