| Anna McNarin chapter 1 . 6/1/2017
Very cute, only hiccup is you wrote Matilda dying of two different things. XD
| Mengsk chapter 1 . 10/19/2014
Great story angle. The mother. Plenty of Ducktales viewers over the years must have wondered. Solid twist too.
| Count Kulalu chapter 1 . 9/16/2012
An interesting and insightful story that is very well done!
| MasterSeijin chapter 1 . 9/3/2011
Oh Wait! It was you who drew that picture and put that idea in my head in the first place! lol Nevermind!

I like to think it was Daffy Duck of Loony Toons fame who knocked up Della and never called her back.
| The Illustrious Crackpot chapter 1 . 11/2/2007
I would point out the canon contradictions in this one (such as the fact that Scrooge was the OLDEST sibling in his family, that Matilda lived long enough to actually meet the triplets in Don Rosa's "A Letter From Home", that Donald and Della were *twins*, etc.), but you already mentioned in the authors' notes that it would contradict canon, so all is forgiven. (If you don't have them already, I suggest you obtain "The Life And Times Of Scrooge McDuck" and/or "The Life And Times Of Scrooge McDuck Companion", which are awesome reads on their own.) I always had the impression that Della was a long-suffering mother of some sort—after all, in the cartoon short where the nephews were first introduced, the explanatory note was that she (then named "Dumbella") was with her husband in a hospital, where he'd been placed after a firecracker had gone off under his chair—however, I hadn't exactly pegged her for delinquency. But her character's really up for interpretation since she has never actually appeared in a story, save as a child in one of the chapters of "Life And Times".
Ack...that long paragraph and I never even said much about the story itself! Very well-written, as with all your work; I especially like how you focused on only one of the triplets and made them out as distinct individuals...I've only rarely seen the original "DuckTales" myself in living memory, so I can't remember their portrayal on the show, but in the comics it DOES get discouraging that they're so indistingiushable from one another. And it's written in such a prologue-like way that I simply must read "The Sincere Fraud" next chance I get! Again, great work!

If I can remember correctly, Scrooge's mother's name was Downy O'Drake and his father's name was Fergus McDuck. Hortense's husband was named Quackmore.
| Helga101 chapter 1 . 7/28/2007
I really love this story. It was very good for Huey to learn about his past. Since I am a longtime Carl Barks and Don Rosa comic book fan, I know about Hortense and Matilda. I also know that Hortense had a bad temper and Donald kind of 'inherited' the temper. My favorite of the nephews is Dewey because blue is my favorite color.
| Jumble Mumble chapter 1 . 11/28/2006
I really loved this story. You did a good job. I liked that you picked Louie. Louie's my favorite. Anyway, keep up the good writing.
| LM Simpson chapter 1 . 10/9/2006
I'll give you a hint how much I like this fanfic: I spent 1 dollar and ten cents at the library printing this out to read this again at home and on the bus (my home computer is broken); even when my computer did work, I would only do this for fanfics I really enjoyed reading. You wrote a kick ass story, even if it was from writers block. Not only does this story get a perfect 10/10 in my book, but you also earn toast (throws toast) and a spot on my favorite authors list.
Have a good day!

(PS- I also linked this story to a forum I'm on! I'll also start reading the sequel in a minute; expect at least one more new review in your inbox with this one!)

I really enjoyed this fic. I'm a late fan and have just started getting into the whole Duck clan, and man was it ever mind boggling! who knew that Donald had such an extensive background compared to the Mouse? Thankfully, this makes it a bit easier to understand! lol
There was one thing that sort of irked me, and actually it's just me personally, but I'm a bit sad that the nephews aren't as fond or as well behaved to their unca donald as compared to scrooge. (comparing the donald shorts to ducktales) After all, he practically raised them and had to put up with them endlessly! I just wish that they could have bonded a bit more with donald...
anywho, this is an interesting take on their mother's history, as she is somehow a mystery figure in the comics. Am hoping you write more!
| Wooga chapter 1 . 8/25/2006
This is a really nice back-story... I love what you wrote for Louie and Scrooge, they seemed really in-chracter.
| Adrian Cavazos chapter 1 . 8/8/2006
That was a REALLY GOOD STORY. I have done some research on The McDuck Clan. 'Tis true that Hortense was a fiesty, hot-headed duck. I can only guess that Donald inherited his bad temper from his mother.
| loonytunecrazy chapter 1 . 8/7/2006
That was a lovely story
| Krisandra chapter 1 . 7/2/2006
Well done again, duck! I've always wondered what happened to HDL's parents, and you answered my question! The one thing I don't understand is why exactly Della went to jail, but other than that...
This is a 10/10, and I'm looking forward to more of your lovely tales!
