brightknightie: Trophy declaring "Bright Knight Recommended" (Recommended)
What's Good?  For March, I'm delighted to get to point out Cindy I.'s "Mortal Ties" (2000, PG).  This pre-"Dark Knight" novella lays a baseline homicide case plot, and then overlaps motifs in a family tragedy for Natalie and a flashback struggle for Nick.
     With a faint sigh, Nick silenced the nagging doubts.  Now was not the time to worry about his own moral dilemmas.  Tonight, Natalie's pain took precedence.  Despite his resolve not to get involved, he'd found he couldn't stand by while she faced this night alone.

What's New on FKFic-L?  In February, the fiction list saw one new story, "The Macedonian Vampire in New Mexico" (8 posts, 344KB) by [livejournal.com profile] dj_clawson.  It isn't online just yet, but I'm guessing it will join its series soon.

Oh! Don't forget!  [livejournal.com profile] fkficfest sign-ups are open through March 18.

I began posting my [livejournal.com profile] oldschoolfic ficathon story to fkfic-l today.  I'm grateful to [livejournal.com profile] amilyn for the ficathon prompt, and her enthusiastic reception of the story!  And I'm obliged to my generous beta-readers (see the story's end note) as always.  This is the longest piece I've yet written solely from Natalie's perspective.

  •  Title: "A Delicate Balance"
  •   Length: ~9,900 words
  •   Date: Posted to FKFic-L July 27-29, 2008
  •   Rating: PG (gen)
  •   Summary: Natalie takes a break from a murder investigation to attend an unusual memorial for her brother, while considering a new approach to Nick's condition.
  •   Setting:   After "1966."  Flashbacks to Natalie's childhood.
  •   Characters:   Natalie, Nick, Schanke, Richard, Sara, Nana, Janette, Grace, Stonetree, Tracy and others.
  •   Quotation: "The mesmerism-enforced lie that had covered Richie's vampirism curdled on Natalie's tongue."

Addendum:  By the way, the fkfic-l "ACK" states that the posts are reaching 279 recipients.  (I presume that is "mail" and "digest," not "nomail," but I don't know for sure.)  Those of you who have FK fanfic you've posted on LJ but not the list, please do consider sharing with the biggest FK audience still assembled.  We miss you.

And now this retrospective comes to my first story solely from Natalie's point of view.  "Time Out for the Living" was a nominee in the 2000 FK Fanfiction Awards, an honor that still surprises and delights me.

  •   Rating: PG

  •   Quotation: "Since Richie died, she had kept herself busy, and busier, until all the times in which these thoughts might have caught up with her had been squeezed out and away."
