I love the part about Cloud Dancing telling her about the coyote, and her just knowing it was Matthew. And how you take up through how she checks on little Matthew and his teddy bear, and the hair brushing. I think you describe them as a couple so wonderfully. They truly dote on one another and it shows in how Matthew worried about her bare feet. " loosing herself in unbreakable circle of his love and passion…Loving him more and more with every second that a clock on the wall ticked…"- Love this!
Ha ha I like how Atlantis just knows something is up with Matthew and she just explains it as woman's intuition. That's great! "For a moment he just watched her face taking in every bit of her beauty; long eyelashes that shaded two big hazelnuts of her eyes, small birthmark close to her ear, her lips soft and bit swollen from his kisses…'Does she know how breathtakingly gorgeous is she?' – she was the most beautiful sight he could wish for early in the morning when he would wake up and just watched her sleep."- Oh total sigh! Wonderfully written.
I really loved this window into their life at home, and how in tune they are with one another. I especially like how you added that detail about the birthmark. Such a loving chapter. Great work girl!

The story is great...can't wait for Atlantis and Matthew to have a child of their own. Wonder when that will be incorporated in the story? Any chance soon?

I just wanted to say, that this story was growing and growing, you have talent. Every scene that you narrated it was as if I were watching the sow, the line of thinking of each character is identical to the originals, you only added new elements and directions. Bringing Atlhantis to life of mathew, was a balcony of master, and I think it could have worked on the Show, and just to wrap up, I love the scenes of romance, Congratulations, I'm anxious for the next chapter.

Atlantis heart filled with love. Her son would say now that he is already a big boy now, that he isn't afraid of coyote's howling, but he wouldn't allow a living soul to take his teddy bear away from him…okay, he might just lend it to Katie loved that, lend it to Katie, hehe.
She let out a soft squeal as he picked her up in his arms with words "Don't want those feet to get too much cold", and he caressed her lips with another kiss, so slow and loving that a shivering sigh escaped her mouth. This is so cute, and so beautiful
He could feel a life coming back into every part of his being, something that Atlantis managed to do with just a smile or saying his name. He loved how she said his name…Aww, I love the way you write these two, they are as sweet as M&S in their love :)
Loved this little scene of Matthew coming home, and Atlantis being the exact perfect wife for him. You were brilliant to think of pairing them and bringing her back to his life. This story just keeps getting better and better - and steeped in romance - my favorite thing! :)
Another great chapter, Snowbird. This story turned out to be so beautiful and loving. I'm so glad you decided to continue it. I wish all of the authors with stories unfinished would take a cue from you! :) Thanks girl! :)

Such a sweet chapter! My heart got caught in my throat when Brian realized where Matthew had brought him. I love how you have Matthew joke with Brian about being an ugly baby. I can so see him doing that. OH and the story about Brian crying because Matthew wasn't there. It was so touching. I've always loved how Matthew called Brian "little brother". And i love how you portray their emotions through their dialogue. That really pulled me into the story.
""Colleen said something that day that actually woke me up. When we found out that you went to search for Pup with a riffle, I was on the edge, saying that you're stupid kid who never listens and she snapped at me. She yelled at me that I'm not the only one who lost somebody. It was than when it finally dawned to me that you thought that I hated you and that you lost me", Matthew swallowed hard "I can't forgive myself for yelling like that at you at the wake.""- To me this was extremely powerful cause it's the point where Matthew saw passed his anger.
And this sentence-"He will stop this today, he will destroy the chains of guilt that held his little brother in an iron grasp. "-Yes exactly the perfect picture of what Brian is going through. Loved it! Such a heart warming chapter. I really liked how you showed their bond as siblings, and how you ended the chapter with them lightly teasing Brain. That's just how I think of them in the show. Lovely job girl! ;D

Awww! What a sad, but extremely necessary chapter. I imagine this was really hard for you to write given your current real life situation, but I hope that it was therapeutic. Colleen's description of Brian as a baby was absolutely priceless. :) I hope you'll write about Katie's one on one time with Matthew even though it's really not plot contingent if for no other reason than he promised he'd have that time with her and the show never really gave us a chance to see the relationship between them given she was so young when the series ended and Matthew wasn't in either of the movies. And please don't apologize for long chapters. I love long chapters! :)

"But, can I still have a purple dress?", Katie pressed on causing whole family to smile at the obvious similarity between Mother and daughter. Never give up until you get an answer.
Hehehe so cute!
"Brian", he softly started "Brian, look at me", as his brother avoided his eyes, Matthew whispered "Brian…it wasn't your fault."
Oh man, this scene put tears in my eyes! I'd forgotten about Brian feeling this way! My throat aches from tears!
Whatever obstacle life put on their road, they won over it. And they always will. Because they had each other forever. Because they loved each other. Because they were a family.
Wow, I need to go have a good cry, lol. Super heartstrings-pulling chapter, beautifully written, girl :)

I'm very sorry your friend passed away. And reading this chapter I can tell you really put your heart into it. Truly the entire first paragraph was beautifully written. "The day was slowly coming to its end, sun already packing up to leave the sky and rest on its bed behind the hills of Denver."- very poetically written. "The blue colour of the sky reminded her of her husband's eyes and she silently sighed at the feeling of pure happiness bubbling inside her chest at the mere thought that she was about to spend the rest of her life with the man she loved from the first time she saw him."- So lovely to describe Matthew's eyes as the sky. It even matches his personality. A bright blue sky. I love how you help us see through her eyes her memories of little Matthew. And how she sees Matthew already bonded as a father to her son. Very precious.
And Michaela and little Matthew were so cute. I like how impatient he is about the time and how calm Michaela is with him. How she soothes him. And Katie with Colleen and the tea party waiting for Matthew. So family oriented and sweet.
Ha ha Atlantis is just like little Matthew all excited. And oh that part where the children run into their arms. Oh and I can't forget to mention when Michaela and Matthew get choked up about him being called Daddy. That was so heart warming. Such a sweet chapter. Oh I hope Atlantis is going to have a baby! fingers crossed! ;)

"Penny for your thoughts", his voice gently mused her senses.
"Just thinking how happy I am", she whispered watching as the sun cast the most beautiful colours on the sky wishing good night to the trees and birds"
Oh Such a beautiful opening scene, I could see them as if on the screen :)
"Matthew was such a wonderful Father to her son…Hopefully, she cast a quick glance to her stomach, wondering, wishing…hoping that their honeymoon possibly just might bring another little life in their home."
I loved Atlantis' reminisces about little Matthew and all the things they did..
"Oh, honey, I missed you, too", she breathed out, kissing him all over his baby soft hair, cheeks and forehead. As she kissed the tip of his nose, their identical eyes met and they smiled happily. Everything was okay now. More than okay."
And this last scene brought tears to my eyes. I know Matthew will be a wonderful father to little Matthew...and when he called him Daddy, it reminded me of the few times Matthew called Michaela 'Ma' in the show, it makes me tear up every time.
Another super chapter to this super story, Snowbird! :)

I like the way you write about Atlantis- Matthew relationship. It is the best Dr Quinn fanfic I have read so far... (y)

What a lovely surprise! Glad you're back! "The humming of the water caressed her senses like the most beautiful tune. She slightly squeezed her eyelids against the sun tracks that gently played on her face. She could feel the warmth of the green grass against her feet. "- Such a splendid visual. So poetically descriptive. Loved it.
And I enjoyed the way you slid us into the flashback between Brian and Atlantis on her wedding day. And it warms my heart at how in tune Matthew and Atlantis are with one another, and am totally loving the displays of affection! ;) I love that you are mentioning Brian and Ingrid's past with Matthew. Now there can be closure. And how Matthew says he will always remember Ingrid but had moved on.
The last bit was absolutely delightful. ;D I loved hearing them speak of the past, and remembering it so fondly. And how Matthew mimicked Atlantis' voice. Ha ha! I thought it was great how you had Matthew say, "We were always a good team,". I loved that. Ha ha I giggled a bit at their kiss, how Atlantis pulled back cause they were in public. They are so in love! [sigh] Great wonderful chapter. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it! xD
