I learned from [personal profile] pj1228 (post) the sad news that Richard McMillan, who played Matthew in "Dying to Know You" and Lindley in "Can't Run, Can't Hide," died on February 19.

Here's an obituary from the Toronto Star.
brightknightie: Grace smiling, wearing coloful collared blouse over white knit top (Grace)
I learned from [personal profile] greerwatson (post) the sad news that Sandi Ross, who played lab technician Grace Balthazar in the first two seasons of Forever Knight, died on August 31.

Here's an obituary/appreciation in NOW Toronto, written by a friend. And here's an interview with her from when she was named ACTRA's 2012 Woman of the Year. We here know her acting from FK, and perhaps other stories. She was also an activist for non-traditional casting on Canadian stage and screen.

Thank you, Ms. Ross. And goodbye...

Addendum: My personal favorite Grace fanfic is [personal profile] lastscorpion's "Full of Grace." What's yours?

Discussion, essays, etc.


brightknightie: Nick's caddy parked at his loft ("My Fandom Knows Trunk Space") (Caddy)

It's a bimonthly edition of this FK bulletin! Only because I didn't manage to post one at the turn of the year. So for the months of December and January both, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here are the items that I spotted:

Ficathons, fests and communities

  • [community profile] fkficfest/[livejournal.com profile] fkficfest will post its annual pre-game poll in February. Do you want to play this year? If so, how do you want to play? If not, what would inspire you to want to play?
  • [community profile] halfamoon/[livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, an annual multifandom, multimedia fest celebrating female characters, is on from February 1 through 14.
  • [community profile] pbam, the "Porn Battle Amnesty" game, is holding a "golden oldies" bonus round (in leiu of the usual new game, which is apparently not being held this year) from February 15 through February 25.
  • [community profile] rarelywritten (formerly [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen), an annual ficathon celebrating underrepresented characters, is accepting nominations through February 7. Sign-ups will be February 15 through March 1.

I'm a day early on this bulletin, but I promise to come back later and add any posts that people make during the rest of this last November day! So:

For the month of November, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:

Ficathons, Fests and Communities

  • [community profile] fandom_stocking is on! This is a multi-fandom, free-for-all, obligation-free, gifting community. Share good wishes, fond recommendations, new fanworks... whatever makes you and the recipient happy. Post content directly in comments, or post links to content elsewhere. This has been a lovely event every year that I've played.
    • Sign Ups: 11/24/14 - 12/13/14
    • Fills: 12/01/14 - 01/05/15
    • Reveals: 01/06/15
  • [personal profile] theladyscribe is hosting a DW friending meme, currently at 896 comments. It looks like a good opportunity to connect!
  • [community profile] galentinesday sign-ups remain open through 12/19/14 (stories due 02/07/15).
  • As always, [community profile] fanart_recs seeks volunteer recommenders! (Has anyone ever Deviantart-dived for FK content? I keep meaning to.)
  • [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers has new mods who have significantly renovated. Not only does it have new templates and formatting requirements, it now mirrors on Tumblr.

Fanfiction
No FK works on the AO3 currently show November 2014 as their publication date. In fact, we've seen nothing since August. :-(

Meta (Discussion, Essays, Etc.)

  • 11/23: [personal profile] pj1228 previewed Nigel Bennett's recent return as Chief Constable Giles in Murdoch Mysteries. She originally linked to a sneak peak and later added a link to a behind-the-scenes video (with some 1902 Toronto content, for general historical interest).
  • 11/26: [personal profile] pj1228 announced that Geraint Wyn Davies plays Prospero in The Tempest in Washington, D.C., 12/02/14 - 01/11/15. She linked to a newspaper article with a photo.
