Notes: The story was one I never thought I’d write. The 2004 live-action Thunderbirds movie was thoroughly panned by the longtime fans of the show, referred to at times as “Spy Kids with Thunderbirds“. I agreed that the movie was flawed, yes, but it had several good points. However, it spawned a huge outpouring of stories which continues to this day, most of them badly written and barely thought-through. One in particular bothered me so much I felt compelled to show the movie-verse writers just How It Should Be Done. Hence was born The White Winds. It took five years to complete with long stretches of inactivity during the later chapters. Finally I decided I’d reached the point where my original, plausible, final rescue should occur and finished it. It’s my longest story with the most reviews. I am editing it for display here and posting it chapter by chapter. It may take a while.
