Fanfiction and other fanworks

Chat & meta

brightknightie: Schanke reading Emily's novel (Reads)
I haven't yet read any, but I see that Yuletide 2016 yielded:
  • 3 new D&DC stories (and there's 1 that posted independently in October, since the last time I checked)
  • 3 new FK stories (and there's 1 that posted independently on Christmas Day)
  • 0 new BSG78 stories (although 3 posted independently in November and December)
  • 0 new YB stories (although someone included it in a mass crossover in October; otherwise, it last had a story of any kind in 2013)
  • 14 new Galavant stories
  • 13 new Pokémon Go stories (I didn't know PokéGo fanfic was a thing. But OF COURSE it is.)
And many, many more. Including 4 stories for A Ladies' Guide to Collecting Mermaid Love Songs by Aimee Picchi, which I'd never heard of, but will be looking up on the strength of that title!

I'm particularly looking forward to the D&DC tales. Falling prey to prejudging a fanfic by its tags and summary, I think they look congenial. I shall see... :-)
brightknightie: Tessa working with a chisel tool at her desk in the barge (Other Fandom HL Tessa)
The story written for me in the [community profile] hlh_shortcuts exchange has revealed. I think that many of you may enjoy it! Take a look? It's a first-season HL/FK crossover starring Tessa and Natalie. The plot depends on each acting with professional passion and authority. A clever conceit amusingly finesses the crossover.
"Bag of Bolts" by [currently Anonymous]
G, gen, 7K words
Natalie, Tessa, Duncan, OCs
Summary: Natalie attends an ME convention at a hotel where Tessa is installing a sculpture. Danger. Bonding. Pie.

More like Yuletide than FKFicFest, the HLH_Shortcuts prompt slates seem to be pretty loose suggestions. I didn't specifically request (or imagine) this scenario. All credit to the author for the happy surprise.

Of both series, I do dearly love their first seasons, when motivations were clear and rich, and triumphant possibilities endless. Their first seasons, I rewatch just for fun, just for joy.
brightknightie: Nick, Natalie and Schanke looking at Nick's painting of his beast (Trio Nick Natalie Schanke)

By the end of FKFicFest 2016 in early October, my job had reached a frantic, manic, all-consuming pitch. It didn't let up for some time. I hardly know how I finished the fest. I hope that I did thank all of you who wrote and read! (Thank you!!!) I know that I never did post a wrap-up here of this year's 9 inventive, insightful, new FK stories.

I'd like to do that now. And, maybe, if you missed them before, help you find some last 2016 tales to enjoy before the Yuletide reveal? It was a creative year in FKFicFest!

Let's see whether I can sort to help you find those you'd enjoy most:

By time period ) By genre ) By personal appeal )
brightknightie: Natalie leaning over Nick's shoulder (N&N)
I'm reminded that it's past time for a "recently in FK" bulletin post. Oops! Maybe soon.

In the meantime, I wanted you to know that [livejournal.com profile] dlyt has posted 2 new FK stories inspired by FKFicFest!
  • "Quest for Lunch" (G, gen; 1,253 words; Schanke & Nick) was inspired by one of her recipient's ([personal profile] lastscorpion) other FKFicFest prompts.
  • "Resistance Is Futile" (G, m/f; 1,067 words; Natalie/Nick) is a generous, thoughtful — and unnecessary! don't get a mistaken idea! ;-) — thank-you to me for moderating FKFicFest.
Dlyt, and everyone, you're very welcome for my part in the fest. We could never do it without all of us together!
brightknightie: Three seasons of Forever Knight (Cast)
I've started the "post parade" of this year's [community profile] fkficfest/[livejournal.com profile] fkficfest players. I plan to post more-or-less one per day until the middle of next week.

At that point, we'll have only a few days before this year's stories come due on 9/24, and start revealing on 9/26!
brightknightie: Janette, wearing black-tasseled earrings (Janette Again)
I often say that it's never too late for feedback on fanfic! But of course I do mean before we lose the author.

For her birthday, in memory of Susan, and of FK fandom as it was, here're a few of my own favorites of Susan's wonderful FK stories:Bonus: Susan's very first FK fanfic: "All That's Best of Dark and Bright" (October 1993)

Old-is-new-again bonus: Susan's FK/Pokémon story: "Nicholas, I Choose You!" (1997)

What are your favorite Susan stories? Do you have any that you reread every year, or when certain things happen or come to mind?
