I got hooked on KF:TLC in January of 1994 and wrote my first Fufic shortly thereafter. I have written a couple dozen stories in this universe during the past 4 years. My pride an joy is a co-written effort with Signe Hovde entitled Child of the Moving Tide, which is a cycle of 16 stories taking young Peter Caine from the orphanage through his high school years with the Blaisdells.
Most of the stories represented here were originally in zines which are now out of print. A couple of them first appeared on the KFFIC or the KFFIC-L Internet mailing lists.
Enjoy these works of fiction, and let me know what you think.Child of the Moving Tide: At last, available on the web in its entirety, all 20 stories which make up the "Child" cycle: the 16 which first appeared in the original "Child of the Moving Tide", and the four which appeared in "Reflections I". This is a cycle of stories which take young Peter Caine from his orphanage days through his high school years with the Blaisdells...and beyond.
