[personal profile] greerwatson has issued a Forever Knight Christmas drabble challenge: "Write a seasonal drabble: Christmas and FK in 100 words. No more; no less." She'd especially like players to post their challenge responses to fkfic-l itself, but of course anywhere is okay. And naturally all timely holidays (not only Christmas) should be equally welcome and respected.

In the proper tradition of FK challenges, she has met the challenge first herself, with three drabbles so far ( 1 ,  2 ,  3 ).

These are my half of the "door prize" drabbles (100 words each) written for the on-time players in FKFicFest 2011.  (See the whole slate for eight more by [livejournal.com profile] amilyn. My thanks to her for beta-reading mine, and for writing hers!)  They're assorted, answering a diversity of prompts.

  Available: The Ficathon | My Fansite | The AO3
  Length: 8x100 words
  Date: FKFicFest 07/29/11
  Rating: Assorted
  Characters:  Nick, Natalie, Lacroix, Janette, Feliks, Reese, Jenny, Jody, Perry
  Quotation: "She had been growing, working, straining toward this almost since she could remember, before her school chorus, back to her dad’s cassette tapes. Stravinsky, Parker, Lennon... even polka."

These seven miniature stories were my contribution to the "door prizes" for on-time players in the May 2010 [livejournal.com profile] fkficfest game.  (You can read the whole slate here, with seven more drabbles by [livejournal.com profile] amilyn and one by [personal profile] leela_cat.)

I'd written a drabble -- a 100-word story -- once before, but just the once.  People often compare the discipline of a 100-word story to a haiku.  The goal is to fit an entire, self-sufficient tale into the few words, not just an excerpt of a larger piece; I found it very challenging, and I know that my success varies across these selections.

By my calendar, today (May 18, 2008) is the twelfth anniversary of the first broadcast of "Last Knight."  Your syndication may have varied.  I considered marking the day by digging up my original 2006 fkspoilr post responding to that airing.  Instead, I sent "Clearing the Air" (my entry in Medie's drabble-a-thon) to fkfic-l and archived it on my site.

On this twelfth anniversary/memorial, I just wanted to say, hey, we're still here, and I'm so glad.  Thank you, all!
