As announced on the email lists by Lisa McD, the next FKFic-L "War" game begins on Sunday, January 13, 2013. If, like me, you're not playing, you can set your subscription to "-war" to avoid the war posts (unless you take digests, in which case there's no filtering). You can also read along without playing, of course! I would personally suggest holding any non-war fiction posts until February, but of course that's entirely up to each writer.
Now, for December, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- fandom_stocking will reveal on 01/06. Four people listed FK among their fandoms. Check out the volunteer post for stockings no one has yet stuffed.
- fkcommentfic/fkcommentfic has received two entries so far in its "Bloor Mistletoe Challenge," which remains open through 01/06.
- Yuletide garnered three FK stories this year, one an assigned exchange story, one a "treat," and one in "madness."
- oxoniensis will hold her 2013 "Porn Battle" game this month, with prompting 01/13-17 and posting 01/20-30.
- FKCommentFic "Bloor Mistletoe Challenge"
- "Trains and Winter Rains" by melissatreglia (starring Nick and Natalie)
- "How to Pick Up a Bargain at this Time of Year" by greerwatson (starring Schanke and Myra)
- Yuletide 2012
- "Rondeau" by tolaska (2.4K words, rated G)
- "Tainted Draught" by greerwatson (~1.7K words, rated T)

- 27 FK works on AO3 currently show December 2012 as their publication dates. (23 of them are by waltd.)
Meta (Essays, Analysis, Discussion)
- 12/27: twilight2000 recommended "Tainted Draught" (then anonymous; now revealed as Greerwatson's).
- 12/25: sholio (here) and sharpest_asp (here) both recommended "Rondeau" (then anonymous; now revealed as Tolaska's).
- 12/19: mysticalcat7 announced that she has uploaded the January 1996 forkni-l digests to the forkni-l archive. As you know, that was when SOS-FK began. (As you also know, she purges some name/address information by default, and will kindly purge more by polite request of affected persons.)
- 12/12: melissatreglia compiled all the FK prompts for the "Porn Battle" games amnesty, and announced the 2013 game dates and changes.
- 12/05: melissatreglia mentioned posting her "Trains and Winter Rains" ficlet for fkcommentfic.
Chiller will not air FK in January or February. ~sigh~ Remember when FK was the SciFi Channel's idea of a great Valentine's Day marathon?
