We're on the verge of stories! 9 fascinating new Forever Knight fanfiction tales await us this week and next!

I see gen and ship, humans and vampires, suspense and comedy! They range from ~1K to ~6K words, from General to Mature audiences. Along with our favorite leads, I see tags for such minor characters as Alma, Aristotle, and Alix Logan, as well as Myra and Jenny Schanke.

Stories begin releasing tomorrow, Monday 9/26, as scheduled, and continue one per day up to the final "Master List" ("Closing Ceremonies") post on Wednesday 10/05. Frequently Asked QuestionsCollapse )

With only 9 players, matching was tough. Several writers really stepped up, boldly and generously tackling challenging prompts outside their usual preferences! You guys are the best.

Yay, FK! Yay, FKFicFest writers and beta-readers! Yay, FK fans! Ready, set...

We're on the verge of stories! Please submit all 2016 FKFicFest stories to the "2016_FKFicFest" AO3 subcollection by tonight, Saturday, September 24, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. (The optional LJ/DW announcements need not meet that deadline, though it would be cool if they did.) We already have 5 stories queued on the AO3! Outstanding! bonus grace periodCollapse )

Stories start releasing on Monday, September 26, one per day as long as they last. As always, yes, you can polish your story while it waits unreleased on the AO3! But it should be finished and ready when you load it.

Thank you, all, for your wonderful participation this year! Thank you for tackling new themes and new adventures with our dearly loved characters! Thank you for keeping FK's flame alive in all our imaginations!

This is going to be great.

  • beta-reading post ( DW / LJ )

Stories come due on the AO3 on Saturday, September 24, 2016. That's just 2 weeks from tomorrow.

The beta-reading post is up (DW / LJ). Please consider whether you might help someone!

I'm afraid that I have some sad news to relay this morning. Sandi Ross, who played FK's Grace Balthazar, died on August 31 (obituary/appreciation in NOW Toronto). We all know her acting; she was also an activist for non-traditional casting on Canadian stage and screen.

Last week's trivia answer, courtesy of pj1228:
It's in first-season's "Father Figure" that we find the stock footage of Nick filling green bottles using a silver gravy boat. While Lisa sleeps upstairs...

We have 2 stories in the queue already! Yay! And the beta-reading post is up (DW / LJ); please check it out, and see whether you might help, either as a reader or by recommending resources.
  • This week's trivia question:
    In what episode do we find the stock footage of Nick filling green bottles using a silver gravy boat? :-)
  • Last week's trivia answer, courtesy of [personal profile] nicholas_lucien:
    The Enforcers are named in "Unreality TV," "Forward into the Past," and "Black Buddha." They're mentioned by description in "The Fix."
