    Summary

    “Well–” Ennis pauses, trying to find the right way to structure the words that were going to come out of his mouth. “Two, you have two friends now”

    Jack smiles at him, Ennis notices the way his eyes crinkled when he smiled.

    “Two friends. I like the sound of that” Jack responds, glancing down at the floor.

    And just like that, Ennis found another person to sit in comfortable silence with.

    Summary

    Alma can tell there's something bothering her fiancé when he comes home from working for the summer up on Brokeback Mountain. She asks, and he tells her the truth.

    That truth, that honesty, changes the course of their lives--and Jack's. It doesn't turn everything around over night, the world still has certain expectations of them and they all have expectations of themselves, but telling the truth puts them on a path to avoid a lot of misery and end up in a much happier place than lies and secrecy would have landed them.

    Summary

    Ennis had to put up his own mailbox, he didn’t know his way around a mailed coupon, but a part of him still waits for something special in there. Something that he’s sure will never come again.

    So the box sits there, collecting dust and bleaching in the sunlight. He prays to Jack every night he’s not too boozed up and zoning out to the radio. He spends today washing all his clothes, Junior’s wedding is coming up and she wants to spend a weekend with her dad before the big day. She figured she'd spend time with her daddy before she goes on and has a family of her own.

    He sighs, they grow up so fucking fast. He sees dust kick up on the horizon out his window. Drying his hands he heads out the door to wave to his daughter. Although it wasn’t her car, it was the mail truck.

    Summary

    He moved over and sat beside Jack, grabbing his hat and tipping it back on his head to see him better in the low firelight. Jack blinked blearily up at him through tired and puffy eyes that made Ennis want to reach over and pull him close to him and hold him tightly, kiss him hard and sweet to calm his nerves. He couldn’t help but think if Jack was some girl he could. If Jack was some girl, he’d have every right to fuss over him like he wanted too, but Jack wasn’t anything like any girl Ennis had ever known.

    Summary

    ~ Many years have passed since the love between Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar ended so tragically. Their children continue on their lives, unknowing of the affair of the ancestors. ~

    In this world, souls carry on through many generations. While it’s a rare occurrence, love, anger, regret, or unfinished business can lead to the reincarnation of a person through many generations. Jack and Ennis have loved each other throughout thousands of years, but even given all of those chances, have never managed their happy ending. They’re finally given another chance to make it happen, but can they do it?

    Jack is a farm boy, named after the family disgrace and secret. He escapes to the city to get away from his abusive family and family business. He just wants to get out, live life on his own terms.

    Ennis is an adopted child, abandoned by his mother. He doesn’t know a lick of his origins, only knowing the stiff business world his adopted father forced him in. He’s all types of repressed and depressed, and he just wants to get through life without too much difficulty, make his father proud.

    Sure, Ennis is used to loss. You think he’d be ready for the emptiness that inevitably follows it, too.

    Summary

    The same day they put his daddy in the ground, Jack sends Ennis a postcard.

    As soon as the preacher finishes his sermon, Jack presses a kiss to his mama’s hand, loads up in his piece of shit truck and heads down to the post office, slaps one of the last two nickels he’s got to rub together down on the counter and mails out a postcard that’s four years overdue.

    *

    Or Jack's daddy dies, leaving him the ranch and everything on it, giving Ennis and Jack the chance to have that sweet life together Jack's always dreamed about. Ennis is just gonna need a little bit more convincing.

    Summary

    Tomorrow may tell another story, but for tonight, this man — with his baby blue eyes, sleepy, self-conscious grumbles and beautiful clipped dick — was his, all his, and that was enough. It had to be enough.

    Summary

    [a collection of words]

    I’ve thought about the romance between Ennis & Jack for a long while and I just want to let my mind flow in anyway it can to organize how it makes me feel.

    Some of it is planned and type it out.

    Most of it isn’t and flows from my finger tips.

    There’s intention to share and bring people together that share the same interests but I can sense there’s a selfishness to it.

    I’m just living a life that my mind doesn’t appreciate.

    But it appreciates Ennis & Jack...

    I think it’ll always appreciate Ennis & Jack.

    I hope that they would find this beautiful in an exploding sunset sort of way.
