[I] look forward to your in-depth responses when you feel ready to share them. :-)

I just said you'd heard all of them. No, I'm still thinking. But I do want to drag over some of the things I've said over in your thread and the other one that's locked, where I've been unbosoming, just for my own sense of "journal" -- keeping track of thoughts that really matter to me.

P.S. I hadn't thought of that "smelling the laundry," idea, YOU. In the actual film, I hadn't got the idea Ennis was sniffing the shirts, really (what could be left after twenty years, even if they had never been washed?), mainly just of his burrowing his face in the memories of what had passed when the shirt had last been worn, and into the remembered body of the one who wore it -- and the pangs of love that would be piercing him more than ever for the one who would have saved those shirts, unwashed -- Ennis's old, bloodied shirt covered, as if sheltered or hidden or held, by Jack's.

Now I'm going to think of him, "taking in his lover's remembered fragrance," out of fanfics, I suppose.

Seen it for the 3rd time tonight. It still bowls me over, but it doesn't just hurt, now. I guess I'm more reconciled to the impact - affected by the compassion that the film has for all its characters. I can see the beauty and love, not only the pain and loss and misery.

You're entirely right about the silence before "sometimes I miss you so much....". Jack *is* planning to say something else, something that will hurt Ennis - he's going to break up or pose that long overdue ultimatum at last. But he can't. Did you see the forum link in my LJ - it's a discussion of that scene and someone there is on to the same thing.

I've written a long diatribe on stuff that impacted or impressed me, or little things that I loved or noted, or things I'm wondering about - but I can't post it! LJ is still not working for me - they haven't answered my query either. If it's not fixed till tomorrow I may register at some board to join discussions.

I am getting your replies just fine, Maeglian. I am really sorry and distressed that this LJ snafu has effectively cut you off from communicating with the people who appreciate what you say and who you are.

Ha. You [they?] are faster on the uptake than I am; it took me FIVE VIEWINGS!

I think I know which board you mean from your LJ post, the Dave Cullen place, right? I won't be there, though. Hanging out on Suspect Terrain's LJ for a few days and following her links and all, I decided that I really don't fit in over there. (Not that I "fit in" anywhere, now, LOL.)

I thank you for coming here and responding, Maeglian. ESPECIALLY since you can't even read what you posted or what people wrote in reply!!!!!!!!

You know what? I'm going to copy this and send it to you as a PM, through K-D.
