Holy Shits - we need more fans!  And my head was already spinning. Which fire is Wesley supposed to (try to) put out first?!?

You’ll have ta forgive em, his chief deputy’s husband’s twin daughters are killin each other so that takes priority.”

“What?” Flaherty stared at Murdoch, who was transferring the call.


 :laugh:  Flaherty must think he just walked into the loony bin instead of the sheriff's office!

It was so great to see Ellery, even if we only got to hear his voice.  That man has a way with words, but I think these four summed things up perfectly:

Oh for fuck’s sake.

 :laugh:  At least he has a bit of a heads up to what Colson is going to tell him on the bat phone!  Thanks, Louise!

Oh my gosh - Esteban is in really, really bad shape all the way around!  I can't imagine how any of this can be resolved w/o serious and permanent  consequences. 

And, once again, all roads lead to Ellery, don't they?  Kudos on such an ambitious tale, Louise.  It's truly fascinating.  Glad to see you're surviving the blizzard as best you can!

oh it gets deeper.  In fact... needless to say, this is the turning point story on which a new series turns.  In case you hadn't figured that out yet!

The good news is that as soon as I put this load of laundry in, I am going to be working on the next chapter 45.
Stay tuned.

OMG!!!!!  How did I miss this?!??????!!!!!!!!!!!!  Holy Shit.

“Please, Sheriff, please you call her!” Murdoch clasped his hands together in a praying motion. “I can’t do it.”

 :laugh:

...his chest tightening, and he massaged it absently.

WHAT!?!! 

And there’s no need to put out an APB for Carol, she’ll be riding with me.”

WHAT!!!!  :o

“They didn’t look in the dishwasher, sir.”

WHAT?!! Oh, ffs! 

“ You earned it, Reynolds.

He sure did!!

Now WHAT?!  Fantastic, Louise - thanks!!!

I was sorta kinda wondering whether you'd noticed this chapter that I snuck in while I was stuck with white stuff hemming me in here.

But yeah, Mel and Carol.  YOW.
