Title: Chapter 1: Fevered Dreams Reviewer: OhAdam Signed

Thanks for writing this. It was a good read and made more sense than the actual episode.



Author's Response:

Thank you, OA.  I'm convinced Adam dreamed up the romance with Ruth.  Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed this alternate look at the episode.

Summary:

A What Happened Instead story for No Less A Man. The Virginia City Town Council convinces Adam and Ben that Roy Coffee is no longer capable of doing his job. When Adam explains the situation to Roy, the sheriff swears him in as a deputy and then quits his job. It's then up to Adam to protect Virginia City from the Wagner Gang. When the gang arrives in town to rob the bank, Adam is injured. Ben, Hoss, Joe, and Roy all feel guilt for what has happened to Adam while serving Virginia City's citizens.

Title: Chapter 1: A Hatful of Guilt Reviewer: OhAdam Signed

I enjoyed reading the inner thoughts of each of the characters in this story as they worked through the guilt they felt regarding their role in The Wagner gang's run through Virginia City. Everyone stayed true to character and I especially enjoyed Hop Sing's guidance as he helps Adam accept the fact that he may suffer permanent hearing loss. I love stories where the Cartwrights pull together and this is a good example of their unity. No way were the others going to let Adam possibly face the murderous gang alone and Ben even gives Adam the "don't let your pride get in the way of asking for help" speech reminiscent of the one he gives Joe in The Quest.



Author's Response:

Thank you, OA--especially for letting me know what worked well in this story.  No Less a Man is one of my favorite eps, but I've often wondered what would've happened if Roy left because he was angry with the town council and Adam.  I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this.

Well, speaking as a true Adamgal I can see how tempting it would be to kidnap Adam but this Nancy is a true loony. She truly is obsessed with Adam, plans for them to wed and thinks her plan is going to work. I really enjoyed this story and watching Adam's thought process as he tries to figure out what has happened to him and how he is going to get out of it. Of course, Roy, Ben, Hoss and Joe are on the trail.

Good story Terina!

Love the quote at the beginning.

This story was so well written. I could feel the pain of each of the characters as they struggled to deal with Marie's death. Although this story took place when the boys were younger, Adam and Hoss still dealt with their grief and anger as I would expect them to. Also true to character was Ben's using his ranch his sons and the honor of Marie's memory to help him continue living.

I love a story with all the Cartwrights working together. The bonds between this family are so strong and admirable. This sentence illustrates the closeness of Adam and Hos when they are looking for Joe, "Neither Adam nor Hoss had to speak their feelings aloud. Both of them had that feeling again. The feeling that something was dreadfully wrong and it just urged them to move faster and cover more ground."

Of course I was glad to see Ben shoot Drake and end his torture of Joe. Well written story that kept my interest all the way through and would have made a great episode.

I found this story very suspenseful and descriptive.
For example: "It was the worst three hours of all of their lives. The wind howled like a coyote at the hidden moon, raindrops pelting their barely protected bodies with the impact of stone on flesh. Even though at least two of the men new the Ponderosa like the backs of their hands, everything looked so different in the pitch black of the night that they made their way home by the trial and error method. When the ranch house again came into view, all three of the victims were deathly silent. Ben gave a sigh of relief when he caught sight of a familiar rig tied to the hitch rail."

The details are so vivid in some of the descriptions I could almost feel the rain hitting me!
Annie also did a good job of keeping the characters true. Would Joe disobey his father and go looking for his young friend? Heck yes. Would Ben suffer as much as his injured sons? Again, yes.
This was a great story for first attempt or not! Keep writing Annie!
