Great story! If only he had done this on the show. Was proud that he went to tell her how he really felt. Wonderful read.

So sweet! I'm glad he finally talked to her.

I like your version much better than what actually happened in the series. My only complaint - it was too short! ;)

This story is one I've thought about writing myself. It didn't have to be the way the show did it. What if Martin hadn't let her leave again.
But why did it take 6 months for them to have any contact? Why? Him I understand I think.
But Bravo, well told and something that needed telling.

Finally, a story where Martin goes after Louisa! Granted, he doesn't stop her from leaving, nor does he go after her immediately, but he does go after her pretty quickly, well aware of all the embarrassment he will face with the villagers, and then leaves himself open to even more embarrassment by admitting his true feelings - realizing the alternative is even worse.

That was a really sweet story. I liked it without the complication of Edith in the way, however, I liked it better when it got to your story in your own words! Thank-you.

Great little story LG. You sure have a knack for nailing the Martin and Louisa characters right on.:)

I'll tell ya what, there's nothing like a DM fic WITHOUT the hateful Edith Montgomery! But you know what's scaring me the most? The fact that I can fully understand the alternate fics, where they pick up and how they go forward, without a bit of confusion. Lovely, lovely story. You kept L & M perfectly in character, yet you managed to get them to talk and listen to one another, so they could get to the bottom of their troubles and start on a new path.
Roscarrock Hill, huh? I hadn't read that name before, and now two fics in a row I've seen it. Why does the hill have that name? Is it the name of someone famous or special from Port Isaac?

I agree that things ould have run much smoother if a certain red-head wouldn't have been present when Louisa came home.
Your Martin actually finally finds the words and strenght he need to smooth things after the first shock.
However, I regret one thing in your version - we would never had that wonderful dialogue with Joan the next morning.

I really liked this story. I love the idea of Martin being the one to chase after Louisa attempting to make things right. He did a little at the end of S4 but not nearly enough. I also really like the idea of a world without Edith.

A world with no Edith - how perfect! Great story, really enjoyed it. xxx

This one gave me shivers. So lovely. It would have been a really nice way for that episode to have gone (except we wouldn't have ever had the rest of series 4 to watch). An excellent story! Thanks.

That would have been one very bloody short Season 4! Unless there is more? :) Nice short story...

Retiring for awhile eh? Not to be believed and your readers are grateful. Chuffed to bits I'd say. Good show!
