This story came about because I’ve wanted to write a videotape/voyeurism story for some time. Way back in the early Kendall series, Chris shows off his Betamax player. That forced the type of camera, and of course sets the time period pretty firmly. The home cameras didn’t hit the market until earlier in 1983, just a few months before this story.
This is also something that I’ve been building to for a while, with the interplay between Chris and Leah. Hopefully it’s been realistic so far.
