Loved how you used Hoss as the "voice" and tied Uncle Gunnar into the story!!
A poignant brothers story. It's nice seeing Hoss' point of view in the story. I could hear his voice talking in my head.
What a good story, Patina. I always like reading about things from Hoss's point of view. He was always so down to earth, and, really, the heart of the family.
Thank you, Pt! I'm glad to know you enjoyed the story.
It puts a different perspective on the story reading it from Hoss's point of veiw. Some of the missing parts in the episode come together very nicely, such as Hoss and Adam discussing the situation in the barn.
Thank you, daisy. I'm glad to know you enjoyed seeing Clay through Hoss's eyes.
First person Hoss in just the right voice - not too proper and not overly common. What I enjoyed the most was the comparison that Hoss made between Joe's visiting relative and his Uncle Gunnar. Funny how Adam always knows how to read his brothers.
Your writing was much better than the rushed episode. Seems that what was missing all along from First Born was more interaction between Clay and his new older brothers. Sensitive Hoss picked up emotional cues in his father and brothers that were not clear before. Those clear blue eyes seldom miss.
I enjoy the stories that include the entire family and this one was no exception. You even managed to have Marie breeze through a window a few times. Nice of her to visit Hoss just when he needed her.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Cal, for such a detailed review! I'm so pleased to know I successfully captured the Hoss we know and love from the series, especially in his pattern of speaking.
I wish the ep had been a two-parter with more interaction between Clay, Adam, and Hoss. Thank you for your lovely compliment. The barn scene between Adam and Hosa came first and the rest of the story flowed from there. Hoss must have felt trouble brewing the longer Clay stayed, especially as he'd experienced a similar hurt when Gunnar visited the Ponderosa.
Again, I'm so happy to know you enjoyed reading the events of this ep from Hoss's perspective. And that you enjoyed the "cameos" by Marie.
