It never ceases to amaze me how powerful the love for Young Rider fan fiction is! I have met so many people who find it one of the great highlights of their day to sit and read the next chapter to their favorite story. That is part of the reason that I have created this archive. It contains only the finished stories, so if you haven't read them before, or want to read them again, you won't have to wait for the next chapter. So kick back your chair, have a laugh, cry, or an on-the-edge-of-your-seat-anxiety-attack...but above all else have fun! ;)
