Title:  Home is Where the Heart Is
Rated:  PG for violence
Summary:  Started as a challenge story ("What if Ben had two sons needing medical care at the same time?") this grew into something that has taken me on some interesting journeys where I found new friends and discovered a beautiful old world.  Although there are additional parts in the works, this story stands on its own.

Title:  The Best Gift of All
Rated:  G
Summary:  Ben's birthday, but the boys aren't home.

Title:   The Shootout
Rated:  G
Summary:  Written to explain a publicity photo I saw -- Hoss and Joe want to compete in the annual Virginia City Days Shootout, but how will they get Ben and Adam to complete their team?

Title:  The Mountain Eagle
Rated:  G
Summary:  Joe and Hoss figure out what's been bothering Adam

Title:  Promises, Part 1
Rated:   PG-13 for violence
Summary:  Adam lies near death as Hoss tries to rescue Joe from the men who attacked his two brothers.  Although this is the first of a 4-part story (the 4th isn't finished yet, though it's getting closer), this part is a complete story by itself.

Summary:  When you've lost someone you love, you can't help hoping they are still, somehow, with you -- watching out for you.

Rated:   G
Summary:  Ben wonders if he's managed to teach his sons the most important lesson of all.

Title:  The Battle
Rated:   PG, for violence
Summary:  What if Adam fought in the Civil War?  (Not a deathfic -- read at least through his journal entry)

Title:  Fields of White
Rated:  PG-13 for western violence
Summary:   Shortly after his 16th birthday, Joe has to take on a man's responsibilities and, in a complete reversal, help his oldest brother out of a deadly fix.

Rated:  G
