I like the episode, but I like your story even more. And I like Lesley. She seems perfect for Adam.

Please, write more stories, Threem. Your stile is very good.

After having been married many years and having gone through good and hard times, Adam's wife, thankfully, realized that it was worth to stay.

She got along with him for so long, so she will probably manage for the rest of their lives. I, at least, would ;)

Moving little story, thank you!



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading. I imagine Adam could have been difficult to live with--he was sarcastic at times. But I wanted him to try to keep her with him as I felt he would. And she would remember why she loved him.

I like the story. Adam and Miss Chevalier are a promising couple.



Author's Response:

Tahnk you for finding this story--and for reading the two follow-up stories. (Hmmmmm....Sabine...Sabina... I always liked that name.)  I think that of the three stories in this arc, this is the best written and I'm glad you enjoyed it.  I do think that my newer stories are better-written than these early ones but that's just one woman's opinion! :-D Thank you for leaving a review.

I have just read all three stories of the series in one go. I liked them very much. I always thought aunt Lil quite vulgar.

The story is a good explanation why Adam left the Ponderosa. But maybe he can come back with Sabine some day.



Author's Response:

Thank you, Sabina! I always thought of Lil as a viulgar woman as well although I like the actress--she has played some very good roles in movie history.  Thabk you for leaving comments on all three stories--it helps to know that people read them and that they enjoy them.

This is an intense story, hard to read. Although you describe a very dark side of Adam the story is believable. You show what can happen if a person is pushed to his limits.

I think I won't forget this story for a long time.



Author's Response:

I'm pleased you found this story so engrossing. Adam's dark side showed up in the series many a time and I hoped to show what could happen if he was pushed. Thank you for leaving a review.

So funny. What a characterization of Abigail Jones! A must admit, I quite liked her in the episode, but here she is really nasty.

Superwoman in the socond part: hilarious

And Spidam? I'm not sure. I take it as pure nonsense, but I like it. Made me laugh.



Author's Response:

If you take it as pure nonsense you've got it on spot. It's utter sillyness, triggered by a prompt that really left me no other choice. But it was fun to write. LOL Thanks a lot for not taking this serious, and for your lovely review!

Title: Chapter 1: Absolute Bearing Reviewer: Sabina Signed

After "A Type of Madness" this story is more conciliatory (can one say so?). Adam seems to come back to life.

I love Lucy. She is so perfect for Adam.

A also like the scenes with Laura and Will. Poor Laura. Although I don't like her, I feel sorry for her. Will seems to be quite incapable, nearly irresponsible (I think here Will and Adam are not alike).

Thank you again for a wonderful, touching story.



Author's Response:

I agree that it is more conciliatory as Adam is reconciled with his past; finds a way to live with it and to move on. I'm glad you liked Lucy in this story and going by Will's character, he never did seem much like a homebody--he had itchy feet and liked traveling. Laura would have to deal with that.

Thanks for reading.

Title: Chapter 1: The Wiving of Adam Reviewer: Sabina Signed

I'm afraid I've become quite addicted to your stories, Adamant.

This one is wonderful. I must admit, I like stories where a man and a woman who are not in love at first (or even don't like each other - which of course is not the case here) eventually fall in love.

At first I thought that Mimi wasn't right for Adam (I couldn't imagine Adam falling in love with a dancing girl!), but in the end I liked her very much. She seems to be the perfect match for Adam.

I also liked your description of Adam as a father: loving, devoted, yet slightly overextended. And Betsy, of course, is wonderful.



Author's Response:

I'm flattered that you like what I write, Sabina. I particularly like this story and I hated to knock off Lucy, but--I'm not good at sequels. I'm also pleased that you liked Betsy so much. I tried NOT to make her the type of child most FF writers portray, clever and a spoiled brat--just a normal little girl. And as much as Adam loved children, being a father is totally soemthing else.

 

Thank you for reading.
