Thanks Steve! I appreciate the kind words. I think it has so many possibilities. Right away you came up with two very interesting possibilities - 1) If Katherine told Robert and Kathleen that Bobby was their father even though he wasn't and 2) What if JR was their father? (JR and Katherine did sleep together on numerous occasions) Since this story is something I literally just came up with today, thee are plenty of things that I would have to give a lot of thought to before telling everyone "This is how I would have it go..." I mean, the part I wrote today is not going to change except possibly with respect to your 2 ideas, but the rest of it, up to and including the suicide note are things I would definitely want to do the way I wrote it. Please give me your opinion on the following thought: I think that the story I wrote makes Katherine a more sympathetic character than she was before I wrote it. I'm not saying she's a "good girl", just that she is more sympathetic than she used to be and is more of a tragic character in that the main thing driving her in my story isn't deviousness and selfishness but rather mental illness. Her honest belief that Bobby had been close to marrying her before JR "turned Bobby against her" makes her someone more to be pitied than hated, and with her being as good a mother as she possibly could be to her children (considering the severity of her mental illness) even gives her a redeeming value that she never had before. She truly loved her children and tried to last as long as she could stand to stay alive to raise them before the grief of knowing (or believing) that it was because she was "too old" now that she had completely lost all chance of Bobby ever marrying her. So Robert and Katherine Wentworth, the twins, would be the two people to wage a bitter feud against the Ewings because of how they perceive Bobby and J.R. destroyed their mother. There's a similarity to the Barnes-Ewing feud in that just as Digger and then Cliff demonize Jock and the Ewing family in general far more than they deserve, and Jock wasn't nearly the ogre that the Barnes family made him out to be, a similar dynamic occurs here with the Wentworths demonizing Bobby who wasn't half the demon that Katherine made him out to be. Finally I think this feud would add something fresh to Dallas since Bobby has never before borne the brunt of being themes hated Ewing by the family that is feuding with them. They hate J.R. too for telling Bobby lies about Katherine, but ultimately Robert and Kathleen think that Bobby is more to blame because it was of his own free will that he chose to believe those awful lies about Katherine that J.R. told him.
