I always wondered why Frank was so tightly wound, and this is a perfectly good explanation why.

You really managed to get into his head, and portray a man that was born into a loveless relationship, married into one, and was in still ANOTHER one!

It always hurts to be so completely disregarded by those who are supposed to care for and nurture you. It hurts worst to be disregarded by those who are supposed to at least TRY to support you.

Wow! This is brilliant! I never liked the character of Frank (don't think many do) but in early seasons I couldn't help but feel just a smidgen of sympathy for the guy. This, however, made me actually, genuinely, feel for the guy. Excellent insight into the mind of a troubled person!

This is absolutely beautiful. Everything I could possibly want in a Frank story.

Whoa, you amaze me. I had never given Frank Burns that much thought before. I'm impressed, yet agian, by your skills at story-telling.

This is a very profound story in my own opinion. It is what Frank probably would have thought, especially after Margaret got engaged to Penobscott. The story makes me wanna feel sorry for him. For once he is seen as human...

Wow, that was good. Brought tears to my eyes at many points, and a new POV on Frank.

One thing you or someone might expand on, if it hasn't been done already, is one of my favorite lines ABOUT Frank: When Margaret is looking for something, and one of the guys says, "Of course, Frank Burns is no Penobscott." And Margaret cryptically says, "In some ways, Donald is no Frank Burns." (Paraphrasing from memory here.)

Which of course intrigues the guys and she won't elaborate.

I've always wondered what she meant by that: an actual compliment to ol' ferret-face?

This is great - you have a stunning talent. I love how well you capruted that side of Frank we so rarely/never see. Makes it just this much easier to understand him. And the way you managed to pin down BJ and Hawkeye is just amazing. Your characterization is flawless, really. You make it look so easy. Their banter is in perfect form, and I love it.
This is such a lovely and touching little piece. I love the details you give of Frank's past, the continuing theme of a promise, and the overall feel for this.
Your diction is amazing (I envy you for it) and your grammar is astounding.
Marvelous job. I loved it, and cannot wait to read more by you.

That was great! I never thought of Frank like that...I almost felt sorry for him!

This is an extremely wonderful story m'dear, It really painted Frank in a light that he isn't often painted in. The characterization was wonderful on all parts, the idea was very original and it was just an overall joy to read. If only we had more Frank stories like this. :)
