Lisa T's Stories

"A fan since TYR first aired on ABC in the late 80's, I found myself drawn into the fantasy and history of the men of the Pony Express. Initially drawn
to watch for Josh Brolin, I was instantly smitten in the pilot by a certain half-blooded Kiowa by the name of Buck Cross. It wasn't until almost ten
years later that I rediscovered the show and its online fandom and first dabbled in Fan Fiction. Coining the phrase Buckette, I was one of the
original founders of the group that has grown through the years and although I'm no longer a participant, I still hold the Kiowa dear to
my heart always writing his happily ever after with Jimmy not too far behind."
