Dead Man's Curve

  • Recommended by: Jonshine
  • An eight-part serialized 50,000 words Kino's Journey continuation, although parts of it take place during and between the episodes of the original series/novels. It's well worth a look, even though it'll probably leave you feeling as conflicted as the original itself did. Put another way, it has a strong sense of the original story's feel about it. That particular serialization is complete as of February 2010. Will there be more from this author...?

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

  • Comments: A thought-provoking and in-character piece, and one that addresses the transgender/nonbinary overtones that Kino has in the show itself.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Kino no Owari by CaideSin

  • Recommended by: Person With Many Aliases
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A traveler stays at the end of the world for three days and two nights.
  • Comments: To clarify, a crossover with Kingdom Hearts (2). The story is written in the tone and perspective of Kino's Journey, giving a strange and haunting perspective of life at The World That Never Was, treating it like a "Beautiful and Ugly" land like many other Kino travels through. Even without background from the other half of this Crossover, just reading it is a strange treat.

Tea and Motorcycles by PenNameSmith

  • Recommended by: ProfessorDetective
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "... Well, to be fair I had a couple of gadgets which he probably didn't, like a teaspoon and a talking motorcycle."
  • Comments: After dodging a squirrel on the road, A girl and her mechanical companion follow the sound of music through a wood, finding a tall fellow in a pinstripe suit sleeping next to a gramophone. The two travelers, both going by adopted names, take tea, compare notes, and one offers the other the chance of a million lifetimes... on her usual terms, of course. A lovely piece comparing two similar characters and their ways of life. Likely set during the 10th Doctor's twilight years (read: the 2009 specials), given his dialogue and the fic's publication date.
