Season 01 "On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time." - George Orwell
The fall of Harran robbed man of its humanity, and Zofia Sirota of her innocence. Finding redemption, with the city rotting away around her, seems to be a pipe dream at best, until a man falls from the skies and turns futility to hope. Either that, or he's about to make things a whole lot worse. COMPLETE
Season 02 Beaten by a ruthless storm and at the mercy of an uncaring outside world, Harran sits at the brink of a grim and unsteady future. But its heroes are far from done. Together they set out to search an abandoned shelter beneath the luxurious domes of Old Town, even as whispers herald a much greater threat than the remnants of Rais’s legacy. COMPLETE
Season 03 Hidden in the sprawling outskirts of the crumbling Harran metropolis, sits the key to a cure. Supposedly, anyway. Not like it matters, since Kyle Crane is done waiting for the outside world to fix this mess and hasn't ever shied away from trying his luck where there's often none to be found. COMPLETE
Latchkey Hero was inspired when I finished The Following and decided that: No, canon. Not today.
Kyle Crane deserves better, so here we are, diverging from canon but staying as true to the original storyline as possible, with a host of new characters added because I can.
We start off with Zofia as the POV character in the first few chapters, and Kyle joins her in [Pact with Rais: Manners].
This Series was meant to stretch my writing muscles. And guess what? It's done great! Though that means you can expect growing pains in the first season, which I am resultant to completely iron out. I have been doing ironing though and you'll see me update this regularly, fixing spelling and grammar errors and cleaning up the prose here and there.
2022 in particular will be a big year for Latchkey Hero! Not only have I decided to give Kyle another lease on life by rebooting Latchkey in an original (Aphelion), but I'm also going to be coming back to Latchkey Hero over the year to bring new content.
And while we are at it... Thank you, Techland.
Thank you to anyone reading this. And if you like it, let me know? I might have marked this as complete years ago, but Kyle's and Zofia's story is still immensely important to me and I love talking about it.
