Reviews for Calamity Hitch
firestorm1950 chapter 19 . 5/6/2013
I just read the entire story. I'm a great fan of Robert B. Parker's western series. Hitch and Cole have long been my favorite western heroes and when the latest book, Iron Horse, came out, I was among the first to get it. I think Knott did a passable, although far from outstanding, job as the series' new writer. All that being said, you have done a better job than Knott of capturing the momentum and feeling of the old Hitch and Cole series. I can't say enough good about your efforts.
Please don't let it be the only one.

I enjoyed your story. I love Viggo and Ed in the movie, there are some great visual images. I really don't like Renee's performance though and it kind of spoils the movie.

I found this story yesterday and then Appoloosa was on tv last night.

I like your writing. I'm going now to check out your other stories.

Awww! The perfect ending to an amazing story :) Thank you for gracing the fanfiction world with such wonderful writing. I love how you ended things with the Everett and Virgil moment. The part where Virgil comes out with the dog-eared book was a perfect touch. Well done. -gives standing ovation-. -Era

Fantastically done! There's really only one more chapter left? :( Are you going to be writing more Appaloosa fics, or is this your only one? If you are, I look forward to reading them. I know I've said this before but you're a brilliant writer and you capture the characters perfectly. -Era

Yeesh! That was a fast update, and a great chapter, of course :) I like the fact that you gave Laurel some action scenes as well because that's something that's not really in the books. Well done and I look forward to the next update. -Era

Oooh, great chapter as always. I know some people have trouble writing action sequences, but you captured it quite well. I hope Cato's okay. Looking forward to the next chapter. -Era
Merdan chapter 15 . 2/13/2011
Yay! New chapter :D And fantastic as usual. I'm glad Everett finally woke up. Quick question for you as well; are you going to be writing more fics for Appaloosa? Because I'd really like to see more of your writing in that category. You capture the characters incredibly well and your plot is amazingly well rounded. Looking forward to the next update. -Era

Ooooh, fantastic chapter as always. I'll be waiting for the next update anxiously. Keep up the wonderful work. -Era

Oooh, things are getting good. You'd better update soon, I can't stand a cliffhanger like that. I finally read 'Blue-Eyed Devil' and now everything makes a lot more sense. Fantastic chapter, as usual. I love how Virgil's so concerned about Everett in his own Virgil-ish way. Please tell me Everett's not going to die...

Keep writing, your story is wonderful. -Era

I believe I have the pleasure of being your first reviewer, so let me just say how much I've enjoyed reading this story so far. I haven't read' Blue-Eyed Devil' yet, but I finished the rest of the series and I applaud you on your fantastic work. The way you write skillfully mirrors that of Robert Parker, but you put your own touch on it that makes it extra-special. I love the plot and how it's really bringing out som of Virgil's emotions towards Everett and how much they care about each other. Your writing is fantastic, although I noticed a few spelling errors, and I'm impressed with how well you've managed to maintain the integrity of the characters and keep the story realistic to the original books. You have impressive skill and I thoroughly enjoyed the bits of humor sprinkled in amongst all the angst and drama. Well done, I look forward to seeing how this story turns out in the end. -Era
