At approximately 8:13 PM on May 31 in the year of our Lord, 1999, an epic tale of perilous adventure was born. Based on my real life experiences with fire alarms at my apartment and my subsequent paranoia, the story's success escalated beyond my wildest dreams. This was Kaedrin's first Tandem Story, and I have all of you to thank for its success, because you wrote it!

Did you Notice
  • The numerous references to Doctor Who and his travelling vehicle, the TARDIS. Also, the Kaedrinians bear a close resemblance to the Silurians from the show.
  • Other references, such as the reference to HAL 9000 in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • The naming convention of the Kaedrinians. Each Kaedrinian's name is the reverse of a regular visitor of Kaedrin. For example, the Kaedrinian character Namllat's name was derived by taking the reverse of my name, tallman.
