Note that the main character is not Jack, it's Richard Drake. This is a sad story. I was too eager and started too long a story, which I never finished (yet). I like it though, I might finish it some day.
Yet I thought I'd enter this with it, just to show some respect for a great theme, and for my work not to be in vain. If you wish to know how it's supposed to end, ask me. I won't give spoilers here.
You can see that the first chapter is much longer by ways of telling than the others, I was away a lot and it turned out a busy task. So I'm leaving this today, I will be away until monday, so delaying this wouldn't help at all.
Special thanks to Babar & Obi for being my everyday muses when I was in a dead end, and to Magintz who let me upload it to his server.
And I am double posting on purpose so that this thread would come back on top of the list and we'd get people to read this stuff, my stuff at least.
