| Anne chapter 1 . 3/10
Even though this story is 5 years old, it is my first time reading it.
As with all your stories, it rings so true. I feel like I am sitting there with Jess and reading his thoughts.
I love all your work. I'm going to look through the older stories and see if I can find anymore of your hidden gem stories.
Thank you this one.

I love your stories. Even your short, simple stories carry so much insight into the characters of Jess, Slim, and the rest. Please keep on writing!

Nice presentation of a backstory for Jess. A fun way to tie the threads of the series together.

Aww, poor Jess! :( Nicely written story.
| BettiAnn chapter 1 . 8/20/2012
A nice look into Jess' thoughts. You show his loneliness very well without actually stating it, giving the story a resigned and wistful air that mirrors his mood. I also like how you show Jess' "line", as he explained to Sheriff Hatch, his reluctance to hire out his gun for no other reason than that it felt wrong. Keep 'em comin'!

| Gabrielle Baser chapter 1 . 8/10/2012
This is a poignant and beautiful story. Vividly written and truth-full right down to the bone. Thanks for posting it. Its a prose-poem.

In L. M. Montgomery's, Anne of the Island Anne says "Oh, no. I wouldn't want to marry anybody who was wicked, but I think I'd like it if he could be wicked and wouldn't." Always makes me think of Mr. Harper. Jess could have stayed with Dixie, Christie or Mac but as you pointed out he wanted something better.
I enjoy your fanfiction - thank you for writing!

And ANOTHER fantasic story by Badgergater . . . as usual. It tracks like the reader is standing in the shadows, watching and listening to his thoughts. Thank you for coming up with this new take and puting it on the Net!

This is what I love about fanfiction... insights into minds and hearts! Now I have to go crank up "Desperado" and listen to it four or five times... Ronstadt or Eagles version, either one. Both heartbreaking.

"No, he wasn't lonely, just because he was alone."
Bittersweet story and some nice background threads woven in.
