Title: Fractured (sequel to "The Village People Ate My Brain")
Fandom: Eureka
Pairing: Jack/Nathan
Disclaimer:  I don't own Eureka or its characters, I just play with them
Warning:  Spoilers through "2.9 Sight Unseen" 
The format of this fic is a bit of an experiment for me and since I couldn't get LJ to format it like I wanted to, I'm posting it as a picture.  One long picture.  I'm sure it will drive some people absolutely crazy.  Be warned.  Also if you have dial-up or other problems seeing the pic, let me know and I'll e-mail you a copy of the word file.  
Summary:  Jack finally gets it and promptly panics.  Angsty.

The format is odd, but I think it added to the story nicely. Great little blurb, too, very real and needy feeling.

Its definately not an everyday format, but it seems to fit Jack's state of mind. Thanks for the comment.

That's it - exactly. It fits him, very true to character!

Very much an excellent fic. I really enjoyed the format, sometimes you've got three things running through your brain at once.
Could you link me to "The Village People Ate My Brain"? I went looking for it in your journal, but couldn't find it.
Thanks!

Now I get that opening line!

Also, are we going to see more of Jack's kinks mentioned at the beginning?

I had to go back and read 'The Village People...' story first. It was funny how everyone knew except Jack. In this story, I like how he finally figured it out. The format was different but I thought it worked well with Jack's panicked thoughts.

I thought the format was perfect. Great, loved the urgency in reading the fic. Very Jack-like, shows the jumping around of thoughts and ideas, the somewhat panicked way he felt when going to find Nathan.


Thanks for writing!

I've been having a hard time getting Jack from where he is as a character on the show to where he is at the end of this fic, because it just wasn't coming out linearly. He's so apple pie wholesome, that some stuff had to be worked through. If that makes any sense. :)

Thanks for the comment.

Wow. I like how you write Jack's thoughts. But, I have to say I love the format even more. I can't even imagine this working half as well if it was in a normal linear fashion.

i'm glad you have it as a picture, because the story wouldn't be as strong without the formatting you gave it. absolutely brilliant.

This is crazy good, and the perfect coda to "Village". The format works so well that I don't think it would have had anywhere near the same impact without it. Definitely the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

Good story, and the format was perfect to express Jack's confusion. I loved it!
