111Hattie's Daughter » This is a Kincaid story. You need to have read "A Fine and Private Place" to understand where this starts. I began writing it a year ago just before Lady of Dodge died. She was reading and commenting on it for me, and after her passing I just could not bring myself to touch it. I may be slow, but I will finish. Please give me your patience. I hope you'll like it.

218 Journey Home » Thanks to SingerMe for letting me in on this challenge. Here's my take on what the last episode of Season 20 should have been if the Powers That Be knew it was the end of the story and wanted to wind things up right. This is fairly short and you get a chapter a day. Comments on what you think is going to happen next are especially welcome. Yes, that means YOU, GunShy!

19 Two Unforgivable Things This is a Missing Moment for the 5th season episode "Belle's Back". This week marks a year for me on this site - a year, three novels, and several short stories. I want to thank all of you for the welcome you've given me. When I say it has changed my life I'm not overstating the case. When I say it may have saved my life, I'm not being frivolous. Thank you. Enjoy the story.

21 No Hostages "Everyone makes deals. Sometimes they just don't make good ones." Jude Bonner had been known to say that. General Stonewall Jackson, on the other hand, used to tell his troops "Never let them take hostages. It never works. Better to fight and die." Who knew how far those words would travel?

17 Silent Night Festus and Kitty are heading home from the Ronninger's ranch on Christmas Eve when they meet with an unexpected delay. This is my response to the "Just like TV" challenge on the Gunsmoke proboard. It's a short Christmas story that would have made a half-hour black and white episode - but fits in somewhere around season 10. I welcome your comments here and on the proboard.

169 Testimony » Kitty's the only eye witness to a murder, but someone's determined to see she doesn't testify. The story takes place just after the fifth season episode "Kitty's Injury". Warning: This story contains a stagecoach ride. Just sayin'.

27 No We all think we know how Matt and Kitty's relationship was different from the way we saw it on TV, but what if we were wrong - at least for some of those years? What if there were reasons for that? What if those reasons changed? Sometimes saying "No" can be the beginning of saying "Yes".

12 Hot August Night For those who asked for it, this is a continuation of the flashback scene in Chapter 16 of A Fine and Private Place that describes Matt and Kitty's first time together. It's steamy, graphic, and intimate. If you don't like to read that kind of thing, then don't bother with this. I'm rating it M.
