Goodbye  
I'll be leaving the Brokeback Mountain fandom now. No hard feelings, with anyone. If you need to reach me, my e-mail address is in my profile. I will not be back in the fandom. All of my actions and words have been miscontrued in every possible way they could be miscontrued, and I don't need this in my life. I do have a life, and it is asking for my attention. It was a movie, not worth ruining people's lives over.

I don't know when or if any other fic will ever be posted. If it does get posted, I don't know where it will be posted. I don't know whether it would be locked or unlocked or taped to the side of a comet. Please don't ask. I'm rather busy writing my Master's Thesis. I comiserate with readers who can't stand to see fics unfinished. I would have stayed, but I have as good as been asked to leave, and I know when I have overstayed my welcome.

The wind strikes the trailer like a load of dirt coming off a dump truck, eases, dies, leaves a temporary silence.

Oh, I wish you wouldn't.....
I am so far removed from much of what's going on, as I do not visit the forums. But I do so enjoy the stories that you have started, and yes, I'm disheartened that you will not be finishing them.

Please note that I said disheartened and not disappointed. I will not send you a note of guilt, for you are doing what you must.

As someone who has a Masters and Doctorate, I do understand the commitment that a thesis requires. I wish you well, and best wishes for future success. I hope you'll keep my email on file, for as you know from my comments, I have so greatly enjoyed your writing.

"Yellow House" and "Higher Education" are amongst my favorite stories.

Please, please keep me in mind should your joy for these stories return....I would truly love to see how they end.

Best wishes to you....Adrianne

Re: Oh, I wish you wouldn't.....
Thank you for the lovely note. I have secret hopes to finish my stories one the dust has settled, but, I just don't feel comfortable posting them anywhere, and I don't believe in locking them, and I don't know where I should post. Maybe at ff.net. That place is pretty quiet and removed from drama. Keep your eye out ;)

Thank you for the support all this time while I was writing.

I don't really have a clue what's going on, but I get not staying where you don't feel welcome. But remember, you'll always be welcome to me! I'll be waiting for updates when/if you can give them.
Bloody Jack Flintrhye on November 13th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
:) What a beautiful thing to say, thank you! And between you and me, I will still be reading some stories. I'm quite nervous about commenting, but, hey, I will anyway! There's four or five stories I can't let go of, and both of yours are on that list.

*Hugs Jess*

M' not gonna ask what happened whilst I was in a pain and painkiller-induced haze this past week, dear heart, because I don't want to put you through it again.

Just, very sorry I wasn't there to 'catch your six'....

Bloody Jack Flintrhye on November 13th, 2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
What's up, is this dental still? *forehead gets all wrinkly* Big hugs, and feel better quickly.

Clueless is a good fit for me so I'll leave it on. I will miss you - alot, and I'm glad I had a chance to meet you even if very briefly and I hope to run into you again in an AU or AU!AU. I live at B'most so you know where to find me. Drop us a line (we are, for the most part, nice folks), let us know if you move.

Clueless is a good outfit, actually. It is more comfortable than all these high-falutin' gowns, and I'm doing this in an attempt to get it again. Thanks for the note. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you longer than a hello in the dining hall and a goodbye at the hotel. ♥

Help please!
I do not understand whats going on! I´m a german reader and have troubles to read the stories right. I spend very much time of my life to read all the amazing storys from brokebackslash and enjoy them. I`m not familiar with whats going on in the forum. I see only one after another leave the forum. I there out there, even in the "midle of nowhere" a soul, who can tell me, please in my language, german, whats going on

I enjoy your stories, planetgal471, and this well be the end? I can only say: I don`t unterstand. Help me, please.

Thanks to you all who will probably give me a feedback. Ursel
Bloody Jack Flintrhye on November 14th, 2007 02:16 am (UTC)
Re: Help please!
Well, just to set the record straight, nothing is going on in any forum that I know about, either! I haven't been in a forum for a week or something. This is just a personal decision I have made because it seems like I have stepped on a lot of toes, and I'm tired of the dramatics.

I'm honestly not sure if this will be the end of my stories. I really don't know. I'm sorry I can't tell you more. If I do decide to write more again, I'll be sure to say so on my journal, and tell you where I'm posting it.

oh.
this was unexpected for me.i'm not active in any forum so i'm all oblivious about what's going on.who said what and all.so it all gets me unprepared.and i'm really saddened by this.
so um,good luck with your thesis.hope you're alright.
love
-Kay
Bloody Jack Flintrhye on November 14th, 2007 02:17 am (UTC)
I just wanted to clarify that nothing is going on in any forum that I am aware of. I wanted to clear up assumptions as to what's going on because, in the end this is my personal decision because I've been stepping on a lot of toes. We've all been in a room and gotten a vibe that people want us to go. I ignored it as long as I could.

I'm fine (except for a touch of the flu). Thank you for the lovely comment.
Jake Harold: jack&ennisjake_harold on November 13th, 2007 06:49 pm (UTC)
Jess, I found you through the BBM fandom. Higher Education is one of my all time favorites. I'll be really happy if you could please, please leave a link when/where you decide to post it.

Can you please not delete the chapters you've already posted? Or at least leave them here, at your journal, even locked for comments, if not at all. I was so much hoping this will al somehow pass... you know best, of course, but still I'm sad.

Good luck with the thesis (I'm supposed to write my bachelor's one, so I know what's it like). Hugs!!!
Bloody Jack Flint: Ennis Reunion Hushrhye on November 26th, 2007 12:58 am (UTC)
I will be posting a link on my journal when/where I decided to continue posting new chapters of my fics. And I definitely will not be deleting anything! I'm not even sure if I have things saved elsewhere... Good luck with your own thesis!
Paynesgrey: nathan/clairepaynesgrey on November 13th, 2007 06:49 pm (UTC)
I'm not in this fandom but I want to offer you some *hugs* anyway. I'm sorry you were forced to go out like this. :((

I'm sad that you need to go.

Oh, please please, after you finish the academic writing you need to do, please finish LotTD at ff.net, and as much else as you can of your WIPs. I will keep checking ff.net every few weeks with hope in my heart.

You've made me care about multitudinous Jacks and Ennises in copious universes and I would hate for all of those lights to be extinguished in my heart.

If you feel you must lock or delete anything, I beg you to wait a few days or better yet give us through the weekend to save ourselves keepsakes of your precious work. I wish I could drop everything and do that now, but like you I have monumental school obligations right now, though not nearly as monumental as a Master's Thesis.

This is truly a loss, but you need to do what you need to do.

Love,
Jackie

Are you giving up beta'ing too?

(sorry, I'm beig very pragmatic... lol)
frijofrijo on November 13th, 2007 07:19 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna miss you, the fandom without you won't be the same. And if you don't know where to post your stories -- well, you could always send your fans an email ;)

Oh nooo I´m so sorry.
I don´t know what happend but you´ve brought great happiness and joy to many of us and I want to thank you dearly.
Wish you all the best.And if you will ever finish one of your stories I would be glad to know. Perhaps you can drop a line.
Hugs

Yesterday I was devastated and sad and now I´m sad and angry.
Where are all these a**les who are driving so wonderful writers away?
I´ve never read a single negative comment and I can´t wrap my mind around it.
Reading all these comments you will truely realize that you haven´t overstayed your welcome here. We all would love to hear from you again.
Miss you
Paula
