    • "I suppose it will dissuade any trouble makers to have more men guarding the interests.  And I'm glad she doesn't want you out in the Winter, you'd fall into a drift and we wouldn't find you until Spring thaw!"   “Tha’d be the idea. ‘cept’in it’s our idea an’ not theirs.” Was his reply. “Cain’t do no buildin’ in the winter, an’ fact is, ol’ man Steelgrave ain’t got wind of it yet. Come the thaw though, things’ll shape up differ’nt. ‘Course now, if he has him eyes an’ ears here, might find out afore the thaw, which I don’t like, since they’d be free ta figger a plan afore we get set. But I need ta parlay with Speed on this afore it goes any further."   Tag @Bongo
    • Ben smiled, "No, what I have can wait.  What is it that you would like to discuss with the town council?"    “Well then, Ben, best you take a seat, the lady has quite a proposition for you.” Speed said.   “Judge,” She began, I do have a proposition I believe will benefit everyone concerned. You know that the railroad had plans to cross the state, but no one knows where. I know where, but not exactly when. Now before the questions begin, perhaps you best have a look at these.” With that she looked to Speed who handed the sheaf of papers over to the Judge.   She gave him a few minutes to look over the papers. “As I had mentioned to Marshal Guyer, Doctor Danforth and I are planning to build a hospital, and later, an orphanage. Both will be privately funded. Then, what we need from the Town Council is the land to build them on. So, in exchange for the work done on the right of way, we would like to select some sites for the Council’s consideration to grant us for that purpose.” She cocked her head and smiled. “No strings attached.” Tag @JulieS
    • "Have you seen the Gulf, then.   “Have. Pa wanted to look at some land on Matagorda Island, so we rode on down fer a look-see. Water as far as the eye kin see, an’ nary a drop ta drink. Fact was it was too far from the mainland fer Pa. I mean runnin’ cattle on a island jest ain’t practical, ‘er so he said.” Barnabas explained. “Couple hundered mile ride.     An’ yes, Texas is hot, mostly too hot, but I guess folks get used to it, like I had ta get used to differ’nt weather in ma travels. Cold was the hardest thing but time spent up on the Comstock in Nevada, got both and well, I liked thet.” He looked at her and slowly smiled. “I’m glad I stayed on too, ain’t never been a bonafide food taster afore, nor a dish washer. An’ I’d’a surely never met you had I left.”   Tag @Bongo  
    • He laughed at the dishes remark. “ Yes Ma’am, glad of thet. Was a good ride, needed ta get a few things worked out, an’ the best place fer thet’s in the saddle, least ways fer this hombre it is.” He paused.   “Would ya step on outside a moment, Em?” He asked.   Pronto openened the door for her, and tied to his saddle horn was was a lead rope to the horse she ridden on that Sunday they shared, with a large red bow in it’s mane, saddled and ready in the fading light. “A mite early, but the feller at the stable said he’d not be gettin’ outta bed come daylight fer me ta fetch it.”   Tag @Bongo  
    • Emeline nodded slowly.  ...anything that’s worth doin’.   That said a lot, and certainly a hospital was 'worth doing', and she knew that few good things came without the prospect of sacrifice.  Besides, Barnabas knew what he was doing, and after all, Andrew had been killed in a stupid mining accident, for nothing...life out here was dangerous, and a man had to stand up for what he believed was right.   "I suppose it will dissuade any trouble makers to have more men guarding the interests.  And I'm glad she doesn't want you out in the Winter, you'd fall into a drift and we wouldn't find you until Spring thaw!"   @Flip
Oleander Wilkes

Plotting with Oleander Wilkes

Recommended Posts

Oleander is a recent addition to Montana, and who knows how long she's going to stay. Would love to plot and post with anyone who's interested, and I'm excited to see what you and your characters may bring to the table! Key points to Ms. Wilkes below.

  • Oleander is on the run after killing her husband. Her husband's family has sent a private investigator after her, though Oleander doesn't know this. (Yet! Maybe you are the investigator! Or maybe you have a bounty hunter around who has heard of this wandering widow and the price on her head? Most likely an ongoing plot device, but maybe they had an interaction without either of them realizing it? Maybe the bounty hunter did? Who knows!)
  • She's spent many a night in barns and basements in exchange for menial work. She'll keep her head down and do what you tell her. Was it a nice night, or not-so-nice night, that's up to perspective. (Maybe that was one of your characters! Did they have a good time? What would you like!)
  • Eventually Oleander might leave that life behind, and who knows for what...Maybe your there's some persuading to be done!

Hi Nuclear, I was hoping that you were still around!! I was also hoping that once Arabella's been rescued "single-handedly" by the dashing Mr. Wentworth [PS Hands off, he's mine!], Oleander might help her get out of Dodge, I mean Whitefish.


She's a bit of a fantasist, so I imagine that the beautiful and mysterious Oleander will be a source of enormous fascination to her as the story goes on. I'm trying to get her a job as a general dogsbody at the saloon, cleaning dishes, mopping up sick, polishing the brass beer pumps, etc. so I don't know if there are any other openings there [Wayfarer?]


Whenever I watch a Western, the saloons are always full of brightly dressed women wandering around in their stays: not sure what role they fulfill, but they sure look purty. Just for decoration I suppose.


Have you any particular role in mind for your character once we get to Kilispell?


I'm going to name drop a mysterious gypsy woman in a post soon, up to you whether that's Olly or just Arabella's feverish imagination.


Best wishes,

She can work at the saloon, but she will be expected to do the work assigned and obey orders  (gasp, I know, such servitude).
