Ben arrives home to find Joe at death's door after a hunting accident, bringing back eerie memories from an incident he has tried for fifteen years to forget. Before the night is over, both he and Adam will have to face their inner demons. Written for Ponderosa Nightmares 2017.

LOYAL SERVICE by southplains Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 10]
Summary:

What happens when a Cartwright loves a girl who, in turn, favors his brother? And what does Regina from 'The Hopefuls' have to do with Melinda Banning from ‘The Lady From Baltimore’? When Joe fell for Melinda Banning, she, in turn, had her eye on Adam. Things were brought to a head when Joe found Melinda and Adam together in a rather compromising tableau. To head off the unavoidable clash between the two brothers, Ben quickly found some other place for Adam to be while the Bannings were still around. But what happened when Adam came home after the episode’s ending? This story, narrated by Hop Sing, tells us how Joe and Adam came to terms with the events of that episode—and how Regina from the episode ‘The Hopefuls’ tied into it all. (Titled 'A Family Affair' on other sites, but I felt the title should reflect more of Hop Sing's part in the story, thus the change.)

Night of the Howling by Sharry Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 13]
Summary:

Adam, Hoss, and Joe fall prey to unnatural circumstances while on an overnight trip away from the Ponderosa.  Unexpected danger ignites a host of painful memories for all three brothers when they are forced into a fight for survival with only each other to rely on. 

A bit of a WHN in that the story is an attempt to address some of the emotional fallout that would have been unavoidable following the circumstances unleashed in the original episode My Brother's Keeper.   

*Adult language, circumstances, and some graphic violence.*
