A Guide to Brokeback Mountain on LiveJournal

“A raw, powerful story of two young men, a Wyoming ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 sheepherding in the harsh, high grasslands of contemporary Wyoming and form an unorthodox yet life-long bond--by turns ecstatic, bitter and conflicted.” ~summary written by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana

“An epic love story set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two young men - a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy - who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.” ~summary written by Focus Features

For additional general information check out the fandom overview at crack_van here. There is also an Ennis/Jack essay at ship_manifesto.

(Please note that while I have listed each community only under one category, many of them serve several purposes, so be sure to check out the info page. Also, some of these communities have very little traffic, but I’ve included them for your information, anyway.)

Human Interest:  White Border Title

wranglers should really be in the general discussion category too...it's general discussion AND fanfic.

I run a fanfic comm, humaninterest.

I realize that many of the communities listed here are 'multi-purpose', but I'm only listing them once to cut down on confusion. For that reason, I have included this note at the top of the guide, Please note that while I have listed each community only under one category, many of them serve several purposes, so be sure to check out the info page.

I list them where I think they belong, but if the mods of any of these comms think they belong somewhere else, I'd be happy to move them.

I had been under the impression that humaninterest for solely for the posting of your fic, and I'm not including personal fanfic journals, which is why I hadn't originally included it. I'll add it on the next update. Thanks!

Ennis - Joy

Thanks for assembling this! I've been thinking there needs to be one of these for quite some time.

I believe people can also post BBM fanfic at lost_cowboys.

Are you considering rec journals? flowrs4ophelia does a lot of BBM-recs.

bbm_hug_photoshopped

You're very welcome! I created it back in January for newbieguide, but was new to the fandom at the time and unsure how I should get the word out. I finally decided that I had to announce it somewhere or it would just sit there gathering dust. *g*

Thanks for suggesting those. At the moment I'm only including communities that are exclusively BBM oriented. If I started including multi-fandom comms or personal LJs, the list would really get out of hand. *g*

bbm_jack&ennis_tremilius

Thank you for the link. Actually, just as I'm not including individual fic journals, it wasn't my intention to list 'closed' RPGs, but rather ones that were open to anyone who wanted to play, so I won't be including this one, and upon closer examination, will be removing the other two I have listed. Sorry for any confusion. If you do know of any open RPGs, please let me know about them.

Thank you.

Thanks for the links, but since it's a BBM Guide, I'm only including Jake/Heath RPS comms. For now, anyway. *g*

There is the Somebody New Community, based on the fiction of the story Somebody new somebodynew_j4e

Also a graphics/art community, for BBM visual arts bbm_artists

bbm_likethisalways_everlyn

I just added both of those; thanks for letting me know about them! *g*

May I ask why you don't have any interests listed at bbm_artists? It makes your community difficult to find, unless that was your intention. Thanks. *g*

There is also jakeslash that is an RPS site for Jake/Anyother Actor you can think to pair him with.

bbm_likethisalways_everlyn

I'm aware of that comm, but at this time, am limiting the RPS comms to those involving Jake and Heath, only, since this is really a BBM Guide, not an RPS Guide. Thanks for taking the time to contact me, though. *g*

I know both of these are slippery slopes into including too much, but in case you think they are needed, as I do, let me point you to:

Common BBM Fic Acronyms

The essay you did for ship_manifesto is definitely something I want to link to! Thanks so much for letting me know about it. I read it and it got me all teary eyed. Great job!

thanks for posting this.. helped me out quite often..

though now I'm wondering if there is something like a BBM drabble community out there.. (like all those [fandom]100 communities.. )

Miroku Hush

I happen to know that there is not, because I nearly started one, but people do post drabbles in brokebackslash as well as write drabbles for pan-fandom prompt communities.

Hi,
so, apparently the fic search community was deleted. Is there any other community/forum where I could post a fic search? thanks.

blair_geeklove_auster

My apologies for the delay in replying. You could probably post a fic search at one of the several multi-purpose comms, such as wranglers.
