Borderland # 1
(by idmarryhoss)
Summary:  A Hoss-starred fairytale, to reward those who always wanted to see the romantic side of Hoss Cartwright written into one story. A bit of a fairy-tale, a portion of Hoss being Hoss, a part of Bonanza and – yes, some other themes combined to that framework.
Rated: K+ (45,220 words)
Borderland # 2 – Borderdance
(by idmarryhoss)
Summary:  Continuation to the story of Borderland, though possible to catch as a stand-alone, too. Here, Hoss lives the love and the marriage he has chosen. A love story, but also a story of something more. A romance written by a person not romantic at all. Contains some mature passages and difficult scenes, and old age character death. PG-13 is for implications of intimate relationship, and story is recommended only for mature readers who can cope with mature writing.
Rated: T (47,785 words)
Borderland # 3 – Reminiscence of My Special Place

Rated: K+ (1,350 words)
Borderland # 4 – An Ounce of Promise
(by idmarryhoss)

Borderland # 5 – Fruity Thoughts
(by idmarryhoss)
Summary:  A response to an Apple Pie Writing Challenge, through the eyes and home-spun philosophy of Hoss and his alternate-universe-wife. Spiced accordingly, tasting left for the reader.

Borderland # 7 – The Language that Stuck
(by idmarryhoss)
Summary:  A vignette on a married Hoss, a linguist Hoss, a philosopher Hoss who is contemplating the universe – or tidbits of it, the least. A different view, a key to interpret my longer stories.

(by idmarryhoss)
Summary:  A short story situated in a toggled Bonanza-verse where Hoss has a helping wife, this short story is a little journey to ask why Adam left, what urged him to go and why he would have been troubled.
