| No-Rhyme-Just-Reason chapter 6 . 3/7/2016
Okay well it's been over four years since you last updated. It's disappointing; but life happens and all that. I'd just be real pleased if you did. :-)
I know this fic has a serious theme. But I couldn't help wondering during these last two chapters if I was the only one who cracked up at the visual of John-Boy visiting the cemetery and his would-be mother-in-law's place in his pajamas! XD *laughs again and wipes a tear*. One thing about John Walton Sr., he's sensitive and compassionate, but not one to waste words. And so when he talks, people better make like E F. Hutton! He's not authoritarian, exactly; but so strongly authoritative it exudes from every pore. So this is a very good job you've done on his characterization here. I don't think I could write him even if I did write fanfic.
Anyway, not having seen the original episode, and with John-Boy being that crazy-depressed, I was just glad that something else worse didn't happen (this being AU and all). I have to admit, I was kind of holding my breath during a couple of the scenes.
Looking over your author's bio, if you decide to take up story #7 I'd definitely be interested in reviewing, though perhaps with tomatoes. Yeah, I see a lot of potential for conflict and angst with *That* one; especially when Olivia (bless her heart!) gets into it.

Ah dear, I do believe my phone helpfully changed "reading" to "rewind" in my other review :P Sorry about that. Anyway, here's an extra review count for your story, which it definitely deserves. ;)

I really, really love how you've written John Walton. He has this quality about him that isn't easy to capture. Lovely.
I look forward to rewind more!

I just saw the episode where Jenny comes back and started to ship these two so bad, so I came straight here to see if there were any fics...and oh this is so sad already! Poor John-Boy...:( Really well written though, you have all their voices perfectly.

You've captured everyone's reactions quite well-especially John and Olivia's ! I always liked how in that family every single member's happiness or sadness was something the parents/grandparents felt a need to focus on. BTW, where's Grandma and Grandpa?
