    I want to share with you a character guide for "Dallas" that I wrote for my "Ewing Empire" fanfic. I thought it might be useful for you in case you want to start your own stories or take a perspective on the Ewings´ history. Remember that all the post-1990 info is my own invention and independent from both TVM´s or TNT Dallas. I didn´t count the Dream Season year so if you want to use the characters´ ages the way they did on the show post-1986, you should add one to the respective year (I prefer to discount one!). You are welcome. I hope to find here a lot more stories really soon.
