We have 9 sign-ups so far! Sign-ups are open through tonight (11:59 PM Pacific, Friday, March 24) ... or, you know, when I start matching on Saturday morning.

How to sign up | Where to sign up


If you know someone who would have fun playing in an FK exchange, who may not yet have signed up, please remind that person!

brightknightie: Misty picks up and hugs eevee (Pokemon Go)
A shiny magikarp was waiting for me between my apartment and my mailbox when I got home tonight! I wasn't shiny-hunting; I was fetching my snail-mail. It has grade-B IVs, but... shiny! (I was so excited that I can't even remember now whether it was shiny (yellow) or normal (orange) on the main screen before I tapped it.* But there is a "shiny" animation to catch your attention once you tap a shiny, in case you don't otherwise recognize the difference, or are color blind.)

I wonder how common these will turn out to be? In the mainline games, I understand, the red gyarados was the one shiny all but guaranteed to every player. Perhaps we're all meant to catch one shiny magikarp during this United Nations World Water Day (week) event? Hmmm.

(Oh, yeah, and remember to sign up for [community profile] fkficfest soon. That's important, too. Sure. Of course it is. Shiny shiny shiny... ~grin~)

* Addendum: Mystic7 reports that shininess becomes visible after tapping. Also, shiny spawns, unlike all others, are individual (that is, for only one player each time). Oh, and shiny magikarp can reportedly be non-shiny dittos... how awful!

I've posted [community profile] fkficfest promos to every eligible community I know (on DW, LJ, and ForKni-L). Your turn! If you know another eligible community or venue, please let them know. If you haven't yet mentioned the game to your circle on your own journal, please consider it!

Sign-ups are open until this coming Friday, March 24, at 11:59 PM (how to sign up) (where to sign up). We currently have 7 sign-ups. I expect at least 1 more. I hope to be happily surprised by more than that...?
brightknightie: Lacroix and Nick playing chess in the 1940s (Games)
We are up to 6 sign-ups for this year's [community profile] fkficfest exchange game. I know of 2 other people intending to play, and also 2 considering whether to play. Hopefully, more will be happy surprises!

Sign-ups are open until this coming Friday, March 24, at 11:59 PM (how to sign up) (where to sign up).

brightknightie: Nick's caddy parked at his loft ("My Fandom Knows Trunk Space") (Caddy)
So far, we have 4 sign-ups for this year's [community profile] fkficfest exchange game (how to sign up) (where to sign up). Sign-ups are open until this coming Friday, March 24, at 11:59 PM (Pacific Time).

You guys have posted some promos! Thank you! Check out:
More are definitely welcome! Invite your friends!

I've posted promos to all the eligible DW communities that I know of: [community profile] fandom_on_dw, [community profile] fandomcalendar, [community profile] last_writes, [community profile] yuletide, [community profile] femme_fic, [community profile] fksquee. Next: LJ communities (that I know of).

One player has already signed up for this year's [community profile] fkficfest. Yay, speedy person! I've got my own sign-up form in a TXT file. I'll tinker with it for a bit (we have until 11:59 PM Pacific on March 24).

I have this year's banner and promo post ready. I plan to start pinging one community per day either tonight or tomorrow. (I'm planning on [community profile] last_writes, [community profile] fandom_on_dw, and [community profile] fandomcalendar for sure. Maybe also [livejournal.com profile] femme_fic, [community profile] fksquee, [community profile] yuletide, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, and [livejournal.com profile] oldschoolfic?)

Please do consider inviting fans to the game from your own journals, communities, and other venues! (Where does fandom hang out these days?) Feel free to use the banner if it serves you:

The 2017 rules and sign-ups post is now up on [community profile] fkficfest. Sign-ups are open!

(That took longer than expected. Sorry!)

Please come play with us this year. :-) FK is turning 25, and everyone is welcome! As you may remember, back in our fifth game, we declared a jubilee and wiped the slate clean; no one is suspended or banned in any way.
brightknightie: Schanke reading Emily's novel (Reads)
As mentioned, I'll open this year's [community profile] fkficfest sign-ups no later than this Saturday, March 11. If you're thinking of playing (please do!), this may be a good time to start pondering what new FK stories you'd love to read, and what new prompts may inspire them!

Because there're so few of us, and because our interests can be so factional, if you've played before, it's not unlikely that your match this year could have received one of your prompt slates in a previous year. A freshly hatched prompt may be most likely to spark a blooming new story...? Not that recycled, rerun, never-attempted prompts don't also have their places!

Just something I've been dwelling on. :-)
brightknightie: Cassiopeia, in uniform (Other Fandom BSG)
I stumbled across a "[Classic] Battlestar Galactica Trilogy" movie event announcement (on Fandango). 5 hours, 29 minutes. "Opens Saturday, March 11." It describes itself as a "double feature" for BSG78 "plus" some Galactica 1980. Listed:
  • Battlestar Galactica: The Movie
    (BSG78, edited merge of "Saga of a Star World," episodes 1-3)
  • Misson Galactica: The Cylon Attack
    (BSG78, edited merge of "The Living Legend," episodes 12-13, + "Fire in Space," episode 14)
  • Conquest of the Earth
    (Galactica 1980, edited merge of "Galactica Discovers Earth," episodes 1-3, + "The Night the Cylons Landed," episodes 7-8)
That's all I know about the event. I presume they'll add places and times. I wonder whether it's an anniversary of some kind.

I do own all the footage on blu-ray. I doubt I'll devote 5+ hours to seeing these cuts in a theater by myself. But I do love these stories, in all their dated, mismatched, network-censored glory. If you know someone else who does, too, spread the word...?
