I know, they always leave us hanging. I wanted to see this scene, too. When I read these fan fiction stories, no matter where they are based from, I always picture the actors from the series. As for Christy, I seem to go back and forth between Kellie and Lauren. I guess it depends on the story. In this one, since it "happened" during the movies, I see Lauren.

I know, right! I was hoping they would have shown this scene too. I wanted at least one more movie. That shows Christy adjusting to being a mountain wife. And at the end of that movie, announce that she's pregnant.

Lovely story, and I agree that it was worth it to finally see her choose the right man in Neil MacNeill. It would have been nice to see her declaration to him as well. Although I did prefer Kelly Martin's fire as Christy, Lauren did a decent job too. I think that Kelly was just so firmly planted in my mind that it was harder to do the switch. I was just so happy to finally get the ending that I thought we should have had ... Christy and Neil. Thank you for sharing your inspired ideas with us in this story.

A nice scene, the characters are genuine and I too was so upset when they didn't show that scene as well.

I missed Kelly Martin, although no offense to Lauren Lee Smith she did the best she could with what she was stepping into.

I was so happy the same actor portrayed McNeil though I don't think I could bear it if he wasn't in it!

I totally agree that the movie was a let-down when they didn't show the scene where she tells Neil how she feels. Your scene is perfect! Very true to the characters!

OMG! I loved watching Neil in a kilt too! I can never take that scene seriously because of it! But it's awesome that the show his scottish heritige like that. Thanks for making this! I felt the same as you when they skipped it. again, many thanks.

I absolutely loved it. I've always felt cheated after watching the entire series AND all the movies at never seeing this scene. You did it perfectly and beautifully! Bravo and well done!
