Hi! I'm finally caught up! I just want to say that I absolutely love your legacy and I'm sorry that it has taken me this long to read it!

You have done a brilliant job of transitioning your family through various points in history over the generations and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Your Civil War plot had me misty-eyed. I was simultaneously upset and relieved that more men made it home than I thought would end up doing so.

I cheered when the women got the right to vote.

I wanted to smack Matthew and Jan and was relieved to see them finally go. I wanted to hug Henri and adored Meadow and Philly's relationship.

Great job on handling the Irish issues and I loved the side bit about pioneering. I was glad that they didn't seem to encounter too many difficulties on their wagon journey out there!

And yay for the roaring 20s! I have been really enjoying James and Cindy! I like how you worked James' LTW to be a criminal mastermind with the speakeasies. The slang for this period is just too much fun as well. I'm glad Cindy got to keep her job as long as she wanted to. And yay for an heir with blond hair!

I've read up on your restrictions for the Great Depression. Should be an interesting challenge. I was relieved that the Bradfords didn't lose everything. I'm sure they'll make it through okay if they are frugal.

I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next (but am also sort of dreading WWII)! Great job!

Hi Pen! Welcome. I’m always excited to get new readers, no matter when they jump into the story.

It’s been fun and challenging to move the family through history. There’s only so much history I can include, and it’s hard sometimes to pick what I want to use.

The Civil War was my first real plot, so I’m glad you like it. I’ll admit that I was too chicken to kill off more people than I did.

Yay for the right to vote!

Matthew and Jan were horrible, horrible people. Henri was definatelly a favorite of mine, and I really wish Meadow and Phily had lived in a different time, where they could have been together openly.

As I’m of Irish decent, I had to tackle the issue. And as I said, I loved Little House on the Prarie, so I had to have someone go West. Alex and Katie had a pretty good life out in Simta Fe.

I love the roaring 20s! James and Cindy have been fun to write. When James rolled criminal mastermind, I was bouncing in my chair, because that was what I’d been wanting for plot reasons. Cindy is the first woman to have a job, but she won’t be the last. Times are a changing!

I’m far too excited to have an heir with blond hair. It’s nice to see some recessives after all those generations of brunets.

It’s been quite fun to play with the restrictions, even if it hasn’t added as much of a challenge as I thought. But I still another rotation and a half to play with them, so it may get harder as I continue. It is good that the Bradfords didn’t lose everything, but they’ll still have some challenges ahead of them.

I’m working on writing up the last few scenes that I need for the next chapter so I can film them this week. I make no firm promises, but I’m hoping for a chapter soonish.

Heh. I’m kind of dreading WWII myself. I’m decided I’m letting a randomizer decide everyone’s fates, otherwise I’d totally play favorites and that’s not fair. Keep your fingers crossed.
