Thank you, everyone who answered the poll! From our 9 total responses:
  • Let's play again this year! Stories will be due on May 27, and start releasing May 29. Matches should go out by March 27, so sign-ups will be due by March 24, and will open by March 11.
  • Everyone (except me ~wry~) wants to play an exchange. Let's do that, and not fuss with a minimum player count this year.
  • We'll expect recipients to acknowledge their authors with at least a 1-sentence comment no more than 1 month from posting. If a penalty is ever needed, it will be a 1-game ban (and your mod's disappointment).
More players usually mean happier matches! (As well as more total stories.) Please do promote this year's FKFicFest game far and wide yourself. You know people, communities, and platforms that I don't!

Tally detailsCollapse )

Thank you so much for still sharing Forever Knight with us all!

May 5 will be the 25th anniversary of "Dark Knight," the Forever Knight series premiere. May 18 will be the 21st anniversary of "Last Knight," the Forever Knight series finale. If you want to play, 2017 will be our 8th FKFicFest!

Should we play this year? If so, when? And how?

This year's poll is on Dreamwidth. (Join us there! Or see the text version below and reply in the comments here.) The poll will close at 11:59 PM (Pacific Time) on Friday, February 3, 2017. (Final decisions remain with the moderator.)

Please speak up! Share your ideas and insights! Thank you!

10 questionsCollapse )
Would you like to play FKFicFest this year? I'll post our poll soon!

2017 would be our 8th annual game. It's the 25th anniversary of Forever Knight's premiere, and the 21st of its cancellation.

If we play again, and if you'd like me to moderate again, I plan these changes, about which the survey will ask:

Play in the spring, not summer or fallCollapse )

Play on DW and the AO3, and minimize LJCollapse )

Require recipients to acknowledge their writersCollapse )

Let me know what you're thinking about what's best for you and for our community? I'll see you soon with that poll!


Master list. Here's the linked, alphabetical list of all stories posted in the FKFicFest 2016 game. Please also try the community tags (LJ/DW) or the search/filter sidebar on our AO3 collection to help you find just the story that you'll most enjoy!

2016 Master ListCollapse )

Three cheers! The 2016 FKFicFest game is now officially closed. The stories and the players have been delightful! A standing ovation for all our diligent writers, insightful beta-readers, and glorious readers! Hooray! Yay, Forever Knight fans!

Posting elsewhere. You may now post the story that you wrote for this game elsewhere as well (for example, FKFic-L). Where appropriate, please mention fkficfest/[community profile] fkficfest when you do.

Endless, forever... Please continue reading and replying to the fest stories! This year's, and all seven years so far! It's never too late for feedback! (You don't need an account to read, comment or click the "Kudos" button.) Please also keep writing, reading and replying to all new FK fanfiction everywhere throughout the year! We're a small and sleepy fandom at this end of history, but we're still here, still inspired by our favorite vampire homicide cop, and his friends, enemies, lovers, rivals, coworkers, and car!

When's the next game here? For now, we're on hiatus. Whether 2017 brings another round will depend on player interest. Stay tuned!
