[Cross-posted from forkni-l.]
Today, May 18, 2010, is the fourteenth anniversary of the first airing of "Last Knight" -- give or take local syndication. So it's very appropriate that Chiller has an FK marathon today! (I wonder whether they know?)
The anniversary is also why today is the first day of the FKFicFest Ficathon
event on LiveJournal. With a total of 22 stories by 20 authors, the ficathon will release two stories per day (one per day when they are very large) starting today. The first two are now available to read. Players have contributed stories short and long, gen and ship, bright and dark, main characters and guest stars, detectives and vampires, past and present... very FK!
The community is set to "14+" just as FK is rated "TV14." If you do not have a LiveJournal account, you will be asked to tell LiveJournal that you are over 14 to view the community, and then you will further have to click on a little "this post may have adult content" link for each story. I apologize for any inconvenience! Most posts are not rated "adult," and all are clearly labeled with their own ratings, but we wanted the community to welcome "adult" stories, too, and that's what it takes. (If you are logged in to an LJ account, you will skip all this.)
We hope that many players will bring their stories home to fkfic-l after the ficathon event, but not all the players have ever been on the email lists. If you watch the game, you may encounter new-to-you FK authors, as well as old friends and favorites! If you choose, you can leave feedback at the bottom of each story by clicking the "Leave a comment" link.
For the past few years, I've made sure to post a new story of my own to fkfic-l on each LK anniversary. I don't have that this year, because I've put all my hobby time (and more time ~g~) into co-hosting the ficathon game (and writing my story for it). I hope that this post will do as an anniversary tribute, instead. I love FK, and I love you guys. Thank you for still being here.
