    EnosIsMyHero got a reaction from RogerDuke in Volo Auto Museum will keep General Lee on display   
    Every country has something in their history they aren't proud of, however,  the United States of America remains the only country where one race fought a war within their own borders to free people of a different race  - all at a time when slavery was still practiced openly by most countries around the world.  (Including parts of the British Empire).   I challenge these 'cancel culture' enthusiasts to find a country they would rather live in...and move there.

    The world has crossed the line from political correctness into the realm of insanity. I could see if everybody was treated the same but they're not. I looked up Chief Seattle and found out he wiped entire tribes and was a slave owner of anybody who survived. I called my friend who moved to Seattle two months ago and he said Chief Seattle is revered there and his statue will never come down. Imagine that. There are people in this world who hate a historic car, the most recognizable car in history, yet love a slave owner. Insanity.

    Hey everyone, Evergreen has been updated through Chapter 11!   Link to Chapter 2
    So for anyone wanting more info than the nebulous first summary.  This is an amnesia trope, but written realistically (none of that 'bonked on the head and now I'm cured stuff' or 'I can't remember my name or who I am').  With my background in psychology, I've always loved amnesia stories, but I've never written one.  Since I intend for this to be the last fanfiction I write, I thought I would take a stab at it. 
    There is also a big crime element to this story, as well.  More of a murder mystery that weaves itself through the story.
    Enjoy!

    Although Uncle Jesse's middle name is never given (to my knowledge), one of the cousins in Dukes precursor 'Moonrunners' is called Bobby Lee Hagg. The dialogue says he was named after General Robert E. Lee, so Lee could easily be another name that Gy Waldron recycled when he created Dukes (like Cooter, Roscoe and Uncle Jesse).

    If you're looking for possible names from Confederate generals, how about Kirby after (Edmund) Kirby Smith?

    EnosIsMyHero got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Lucas K. Duke   
    I know it's been forever since someone commented here.  Assuming his middle name hasn't been found within the canon of the show since 2005, I'm going to put out another idea. 
    Because of how the old-timey naming system works in the south, especially in Appalachia, I'm going to add 'Kemper' to the list of possibles.  James Lawson Kemper was the Confederacy's youngest brigade commander, making brigadier general at the age of 39.  He was wounded at Gettysburg, but survived to become an important political figure in Virginia.  He was known for his honesty and attention to duty.  Naming boys after valorous Confederate generals was once a popular practice, and if the name didn't sound like a first name, it was given as a middle name.  Lukas Kemper Duke doesn't have a wonderful ring to it, but it would be geographically consistent.

    Hey everyone!  I have a new fanfic annoucement (now that Halls of Stone and Iron is finally complete!).  Come over and visit and stay awhile!
    Title: Evergreen
    Rating: Teen
    Tags:  Angst/Drama/Angst/Adventure/more Angst...probably lots of Angst
    Chapters: Not as many as Stone and Iron!  Probably around 30 chapters (watch me be completely off!)
    Characters:  Daisy centric, but involves all characters. 
    Pairing:  It's no secret.  Everyone who has ever read my stuff knows I write Enos/Daisy.  Although that doesn't necessarily guarantee the ending....
    Summary:  Some things are temporary - some things endure forever. When an accident changes Daisy's life completely, the quest to recover what she has lost leads her on the journey of a lifetime.

    EnosIsMyHero reacted to deli rentacop frontage rd in from james best about coy and vance   
    I know that this is a old post and Mr. Best is gone but I will say that Cherry and Meyer (in my opinion) did a great job filling in for the boys. They would have been accepted like Jeb Stuart Duke but unfortunately they were resented because of the whole thing with merch. Doesn't help either when Wopat refers to them as "Clones".  Two of my favorite episodes are the Mean Green Machine ones. Those were great. I would really like a MGMachine toy ERTL car if anyone know where to get one. But anyway, I have to give credit to Byron Cherry for participating in the Dukes of Hazzard events and not having a bad attitude for some of the bad things said about him. That just shows that he loved the show. Anyway, that's my 2 cents

    Hey, to each his own!  It's funny how we watch the same characters and read between the written lines in different ways.  My thing is taking characters from comedies and putting them in serious situations that makes them have to grow and change.  Keeps it real.

    Having said that, I will say, it does have a certain " Flare" to it. You definitely have a talent in writing!

    Hey guys, EnosIsMyHero here, ( otherwise known as WENN9366 on fanfiction.net)!  I'm the author of that hugely monstrous novel over on FFnet, Halls of Stone and Iron.  At over 220,000 words, I can understand why some readers would hesitate to wade into such a committment!  So, I thought I would post something shorter to give you a feel of how I write.  The following is actually a one-shot sequel of another novel of mine, The Story of Us, which is a backstory for the characters of Daisy Duke and Enos Strate, using the canon we know from the series.  However, this one-shot can be read as a stand alone without reading the previous story, although it does hint at a few things that happened.  If you like it,  please visit my profile on ffnet to read my other stories!

    Hymn for Yesterday
    March, 1972
    Birds twittered, fluttering about in the bright sunlight of the chilly March morning, and a warm breeze blew from the field across the road, swaying the limbs with their newly formed buds in its ebb and flow. The day was alive with life, welcoming the coming of spring after the long, harsh winter of 1971.
    Yet, with life came death of a kind that bore bitterly into the hearts of even the roughest Hazzard County had to offer. A slip of fate – tragic and senseless, the fact of which made the consequences only harder to accept.
    Her eyes sought his where he stood, caught them, and held them a moment before he looked away, back to the bier and its oak coffin and the green, plastic carpet concealing a shallow, dark shaft in the New Friendship Cemetery. He was dressed in the uniform of Hazzard's finest, and Daisy recalled how full her heart had been the first time she had seen him wearing it, and of the proud gleam in Enos' eyes as Sheriff Harris had sworn him in as a deputy.
    Had she thought it was a game? Playing police officer - as she, Luke, and himself had done so many times growing up. Revenuers and moonshiners...
    If she'd ever held such an illusion, it had come shattering down two days ago in a rain of a thousand tiny shards – burying themselves deep into her heart, and she doubted if she would ever be able to dig them out completely.
    It should have been him.
    A tightness began in her chest at the thought, but she'd promised herself she wouldn't cry again. It was wrong, she felt, to weep over what had not happened instead of what had.
    It had been a typical Friday evening, with the boot-leggers gearing up for their runs...in fast cars, loaded with high-proof whiskey.
    The CB on the kitchen counter had been tuned to Channel 9 that day, Uncle Jesse wanting to get a feel for where the Sheriff had stationed his deputies before his run up to Johnson City - a game of cat and mouse that the Dukes had played for so long it hardly bore thinking about.
    She had listened absently as she'd made dinner, but mostly it had been chatter, procedural codes for this and that, locations of the three patrol cars; Rosco, in Hazzard #2, Travis in Hazzard #3, and Enos in Hazzard #4. Travis Ecklund was in his second year with the Sheriff's Department, hailing from Acworth, Georgia, a small town just north of Atlanta. His father was a railroad man which, though more legal than a ridgerunner, was just about as poor. He and Enos had become fast friends.
    The sun was dipping low on the horizon, bathing the quiet farmyard in warm tones of gold and orange, when Rosco had put out a call for someone to chase down a '66 Comet speeding west on Ridge Road, himself already busy with another traffic stop.
    "10-4, Hazzard 2," came Enos' reply, "ETA five minutes."
    There was a few seconds of static and then, "Enos, I'm right here on Ridge and Possum Lick, I'll get him."
    "10-4, Hazzard 3. Don't let him out-fox ya', Travis."
    "I was born behind a wheel, Strate," Travis had laughed. "See ya' at the station."
    "10-4, Ecklund. Hazzard 4 out."
    Twelve minutes later, Enos came over the radio once more, worry evident in his voice. "Hazzard 3, please copy."
    ...Silence.
    "Hazzard 3, Travis, I just heard a mighty big explosion from over your way. You alright, buddy roe?"
    ...Silence.
    "Hazzard 2, 10-25 Hazzard 3?"
    "I ain't heard from him, either, Enos."
    "I'm right here at Ridge so I'll check on him. Maybe his radio ain't working again."
    "10-4 Enos, Rosco out."
    They said you could see the flames ten miles away as darkness fell - burning like the gates of Hell up on that ridge. A rock slide had stopped the Comet dead in its tracks, just around a blind corner with Hazzard #3 tight on its tail. There were no skid marks. Travis had never seen it coming.
    Her eyes drank him in as though he were a mirage that might fade away into nothing. If he'd taken the call, he would be the one in that coffin, and...and....
    She lowered her head to conceal the tears rolling down her cheeks, falling like drops of rain on the memorial card in her hands..
    He glanced back up as she looked down, across the quiet stretch of earth between them. Her shoulders hitched slightly, betraying her sorrow. He watched her – loving her more than the sun, moon, and stars above, and his throat tightened as he thought of where she should be - a bittersweet memory, sleeping still and silent beneath the trees whose only season was a season of death.
    The day after he had returned to Hazzard for the last time, the front page story in the Tri-County Times had stopped him cold. It had taken his breath away and damn near made him grab her and shake her until she repeated the promise she'd made to him the night she'd come home wasted.
    No one in his life had ever been given a second chance, but the Good Lord had brought her back to the farm, safe and sound.
    He'd gotten up and gone over to where she was cooking, passing the paper to her without a word. Slowly, the color drained from her cheeks, and she'd reached out, grasping his shoulder to steady herself before stumbling past him and out the kitchen door.
    The dead, he'd supposed, affected everyone differently – and discovering you should by all rights be numbered among them was a painful blessing under the best of circumstances. His own tears that fell later, in the quiet of his room, were those of thanksgiving mingled with guilt. She'd come back to the farm that night instead of staying at that party, while 28 drunken teenagers burned to death in a shack on the banks of Moccasin Creek. A hard lesson, learned by chance.
    The blaze had spread like wildfire the paper said, fueled by high-proof moonshine. There had been no survivors.
