Ma Tennis ATC reviews
My offering on what happened to Ma Tennis. I think this episode has such a tragic ending.

Snakes reviews
A short, three chapter story about the special relationships between Matt and Chester and Kitty. With thanks to the GS episodes "Reward for Matt," and "The Coward," and my favorite line from the movie "Forest Gump."

Saving Face reviews
A Missing Moments for "Morgan." i like the episode, but think vain Cole Morgan would not be able to resist wreaking some revenge for his ruined face.

The Search reviews
A Missing Moment(s) for "Help Me Kitty." I loved the tender Matt and Kitty moment at the end, but wanted more.

Dream River reviews
An alternate universe look at a meeting of past and present along Matt and Kitty's timeline. I have Matt and Kitty marrying much sooner than in many fanfiction stories, and there was no Gunsmoke TV show in my 1997 parts of the story. I have stretched the current Dodge City details too, I am sure. Be of an open mind and travel with me.

The Saloon Girl (ATC to The Cabin) reviews
I've always wondered what happened to poor Belle. Another exceptional episode but with an unsettled ending.

The Hostage (1965) ATC reviews
This is the B&W episode where Matt is taken prisoner by bandits, using him as their safe-passage hostage to reach the Mexican border. This otherwise excellent episode had an incomplete ending, in my opinion.

ATC to Kitty's Rebellion reviews
To me, the ending for Kitty's Rebellion was too abrupt and unhappy for her. I couldn't leave her like that.

A Light in the Heart reviews
Some imaginings about a romance for Sam Noonan, in a Gunsmoke alternative universe. I also reconstructed Ma Smalley's boarding house to a setting more pleasing to me. There will be a total of eleven chapters, which may be too long for some readers, but the characters just wouldn't stop talking to me!

More Than a Mule reviews
How Festus got his second Ruth mule, in my mind, anyway. A mule can live 30 to 50 years, so definitely a lifetime relationship. The use of "jenny" for a female mule, and "jack" for a male is how Ken Curtis referred to them as Festus in the touching YouTube video explaining why all of his mules are called Ruth. Please forgive my attempt at "Festus Speak!"
