For April, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- fkficfest/fkficfest is taking sign-ups through Friday, May 17! (This has been mentioned on last_writes and ForKni-L.) Please spread the word and submit your prompts!
- month_of_meta/month_of_meta is live for May! This multi-fandom fest celebrates essays, timelines, research and all the other wonderful things we create for our fandoms besides fiction, poetry, vids and art. (You can play with or without a deadline commitment.)
- rarewomen will release its 2013 stories on 5/04. FK was requested!
- sharpest_asp opened a free-for-all multi-fandom kissing meme without an official deadline. Still time to play?
- sharpest_asp's kissing meme scored two FK entries: one Nick/Natalie and one Nick/Lacroix.
- 3 FK works on AO3 currently show April 2013 as their publication date (all by Merfilly|SharpestAsp).
