| Guest chapter 1 . 7/9
My name is Sherry, and I am not a writer, but I am a lover of M7 and their stories. i have had many ideas and plots in my head, but I have no idea how to write them, and I do not believe that I could do them justice. I think that Ezra needs a little girl in his life. His character is so great with children, and to have a child that loves him unconditionally is just what he needs. I thought that it would to great to introduce her at about the age of five or so, during the time shortly after Vin get custody of the twins Beau and Devin ( can you see the trouble these three could get into...hahaha). She would be a redhead, her personality would be feisty, very intelligent, and fearless; host like her daddy.
Another idea I had was in the ATF world, were the guys meets a young girl that saves one of the guys in a explosion, she is the evidence that is needed to bring down the traffickers; but is doesn't trust adults, and keeps trying to run away in the beginning. Chris take the girls in hand (spanking) at the ranch. She is placed in Chris's care, where she learns what it means to be loved. She is about 10 years old.
Like I said before; I am not a writer, and have no idea how to begin to put my ideas into stories; if someone could pick-up the mantel and write these ideals of mine. I would appreciate it greatly.

So far I am enjoying this story very much. I quite like the idea of Ezra and JD being ten year olds. However one thing I am finding very annoying is the 'yaw' . Chris didn't speak like that he simply said, 'you' like the rest of us. If you want to tell us he is using a southern accent I would prefer it if you would just say Chris drawled, or something like that, but the word 'yaw' is distracting and to be honest for me anyway a tad annoying. Just my opinion. However I am still reading this and so it cant be all that bad! LOL
Another point I would like to make is sometimes a ten year Ezra is written far to maturaly and the language he uses far to adult, which can make it slightly unrealistic as well.
I have been around some very inteligent ten year olds (genious level actually) and although they have an excellent command of the English language they are still very much ten year olds, with ten year old experiences and thoughts.
I know he's meant to be posh...and of a higher class and perhaps even better educated than the average child. However Ezra moved around a lot with his mother, according to the show and was by his own admission educated by Maude, who taught him everything she knew..., and so I don't think he would've been quite this mature. He would've minded his manners yes; he would've been a slippery little cuss, yes (living wih Maude he coudlnt be anything else), He would've been cunning and a very good liar. I also think he would've been a charmer or at least tried to have been, but mature? In some ways perhaps but he would've also been a ten year old boy and somewhat insecure as well not having the influence of a man (a father regluar figure). So a complicated confusion of emotions going with this particular child..., difficult to write and certainly a challenge.
So I can well imagine how difficult it has been to write this combination and I applaud you for trying. Now, this is just my opinion and it certainly hasn't stopped me from reading your story so far anyway.
I would like to thank you for the fun and for the giving of your time to give me an evenings pleasure reading...thanks...Heather

I thouroughly enjoyed this story. I didn't think I would like Ezra as a small child, but you wrote him perfectly! And the way he talks, is exactly the way the adult Ezra speaks. Loved the dialogue and good job on a great story!

I want to tell you I really liked this story. I would have reviewed each chapter but the computer i normally read on won't open a review window anymore for some reason and I am now very far behind in reviewing my stories. I do love these stories you write. I had never read any of the M7 stories until this one but I also read your other one. I still hope you will one day do Sirius and Harry and that you will finish the one about Batman and his boys. I look forward to reading more of your stories, but I can't bring myself to read the Snape ones as i don't like him.

An excellent story :) I'm looking forward to reading more (I'm also sorry to be annoying but will the Ties that Bind be updated soon?)
-Great work, I love your Magnificent Seven stories

Nice ending. Sequel? (Please? ;D)

Hi, JL. Glad to see another story from you. And Mag 7 to boot! I do have a tiny nit to pick: the word is "disdain," not "distain." But the meaning is stil clear, so I suppose it really doesn't matter. Sometimes I'm as picky about grammar as Ezra himself! ;D
I've always been a fan of the "Little Britches" stories - they're by someone over at a Mag 7 site - so of course I pounced on this one. I think the only ones I like better are the ATF/Little Britches tales.
I just love the way you handle JD. I'll be interested to find out just HOW he got out to Four Corners after his mother died. And Ezra is...well, Ezra, and that's as it should be. ;D

This really was a wonderful story! I'd forgotten much of it. I would love to see more, though! I'm always greedy for M7.
