Ed and Hank
Part One:  Friday Night
- very short 

by myeyesaintblue

Genre:  non-fiction
Pairing:  Ed & Hank
Rating:  PG, at the most

Disclaimer:  I know, somewhere out there, there's a guy named Ed and and a guy named Hank who at some point in their lives met the amazing Ms. Proulx and told her their story.  Jack and Ennis belong entirely to Ms. Proulx.  Ed and Hank belong only to each other.

This started as a one shot.  No really.  Links to all other parts are here:


Ed turns over, groaning as he sees Hank sitting across the room bathed in the glow of the computer screen. “What time is it, bud?  C’mon to bed….Old…..Need m’ beauty sleep.”

“Be right there.” Hank says, trying to stifle his laughter but letting it out a bit more since he now knew Ed was awake.

"They got 'em in Wyomin', Maine, Minnesota, South Dakota, Colorado, Montana... Now one of them's even got 'em in outer space, 'nother has Ennis on a psychologist's couch n 'nother has Jack throwin' his self in front of a train..."

Ed grins, “Don’t much care where they got ‘em….Long as they end up together.”

Hank ducks his head and smiles at Ed.

Ed hesitates, then turns serious, “C’ept when they hurt Jack, don’ like it t’all when they hurt Jack.”

Hank’s smile fades, “Y’know she ne’er thought all this would come out a' one little short….But they’re stories, jus’ stories…. Though that one came pretty close to…. People don’ mean nothin’ by it.  Mostly jus’ want ‘em to be happy.”

Ed, not at all liking the look his words put on Hank’s face, opens his arms towards Hank, giving him another grin, ‘Gotta admit, do like it when they end up happy…and rich.”

Ed is rewarded with Hank’s laugh as he quickly turns off the computer and climbs into bed and into Ed’s arms. “They don’ need ta be rich, jus’ need each other.”  His green eyes shining, Hank leans back in order to see Ed’s face, “Hey Ed, wanna try what I read ta ya – Y’know that one part from m' fav’rite story? Ed laughs, “You and those stories are goin ta be t' death a’ me.” Ed leans in for a kiss, “Oh well, might as well be buried with a smile on m' face….”

Later, as they’re drifting off to sleep in each other’s arms, Hank nuzzles against Ed’s neck and murmurs softly, “Some sweet life, eh Cowboy?”

Ed’s breath catches in his chest. Even after all these years he still has a hard time believing it’s possible to be this happy. He pulls Hank closer, “Yeah Rodeo, some sweet life.”

Some sweet fic!

I liked this so much. I love it when the characters turn on the slash writers, even as gently as yours do here. This made me laugh, made me ache a little, made my heart turn over. Well done, hope you're going to write a lot more! And the dialogue sounded fine to me!

Oops - I was inadvertently screening comments. Sorry...

I think I fixed the comment screening thing. I'm too old to be very good with computer stuff.

Thanks for all your encouraging/kind comments. Not sure if I have it in me to write any more - May have been "a one shot thing" - but I may try. I don't think I'd be very good at writing the sex scenes.

Don't mean to make too much fun -- I've basically been a lurker for quite a while, enjoying all the great fanfic here and thought I should join up and contribute something.

More than anything else, I really enjoy seeing them get "some sweet life"....

That was great! I loved it my partner every night sits on the couch across from me and says reading another story are you Joe, and yeah I say then when I get to one of the hot sex scenes I read it to him and try to put a seed in his mind for things to come later. Well, after 11 years the later is more likely then sooner but oh well such is married life. Yeah this sounds a lot like many of us here reading and pushing the refresh button looking for more stories. Thanks so much and keep going you did a good job with this part so far. Joe (of course I'm just addicted to anything Brokeback so maybe I'm not the best to encourage you)

My gosh, Joe! Loved your reply. Talk about art imitating life, imitating art, imitating life - that was quite surreal, or serendipitous, or something - sure you know what I mean ... :-)

Hi Joetheone,

Realized I had never written back to you when I meant to. I’ve read your comments on other stories/etc and they’re always very heartfelt and touching.

Glad you enjoyed Ed and Hank!

Yay! This was good. Short and lovely. Outer space! Yay! That must have been me. I think I got all of outer space covered *greedy* You seem really quite good at this-- keep writing.

Thanks again everyone

Thanks again everyone for all your great comments -- I really appreciate it.

I know I can't hold a candle to all of you real writers who post here.

Just writing this extremely short piece gave me a new appreciation for just how hard it is for y'all to do what you do. Love everything y'all write!

Loved it!!

I just read this for the first time when I saw you had updated - what a fabulous and funny look at the community and a great story into the bargain!! I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to more of Hank's offerings. Also tickled pink that you made reference to my fanfic. Thank you so much for sharing this with us :0)

Re: Loved it!!

Thanks Merrobot!

Glad you like it. And thanks for reminding me that I have to catch up with your story. Trouble with starting to write is that the reading suffers. I LOVE how you put Ennis on the psychologist's couch! (Although Ed is a bit peeved about it. ;D)

I've been really naughty and peeking into the postcards and some of the other things without getting down to reading the story from the beginning. But here I am, determined!

What a great start...I love that they are keeping up with the fanfiction and talking about the various situations that we have put Ennis and Jack in. LOL.

Helen :)

ok, I have just start to re-read this for the... I believe... fourth of fifth time. THIS time, I will comment all and every chapter I re-read. Why? Cause I am crazy and you REALLY deserve it!

First chappie ever! Ed and Hank, short maybe but they sure are themselves. Can't help laughing at Hank reading the stories on line! Wish to be able to know which ones is he talking about XD

LOL! You are so sweet! I really do look forward to your comments, but please don't feel like you have to comment on every chapter... :D

Poor Hank. That was back when he had time to read all the wonderful stories out there...

Two years after you posted this, I'm finally getting to read this! (Thanks for keeping it on your journal)

I loved this first chapter. What a great premise and start. Looking forward to this ride.

Nice to see Ed and Hank with the sweet life even if some slash writers don't let Ennis and Jack have the same.

Thank you
