brightknightie: Cassiopeia, in uniform (Other Fandom BSG)
From the [community profile] harvey_fanaid fundraiser for hurricane relief, I made a donation and [archiveofourown.org profile] merfilly kindly wrote a new Battlestar Galactica (1978) story for us all to enjoy:

"Acknowledging the Problem" (~1K words) (gen, G) (Cassiopeia, Starbuck, Apollo, glimpse of Adama)

I supplied a prompt about the redevelopment of civil society. We received a two-layered look at the shape of things: up close, a not-entirely-successful party, and at a distance, a road toward renewed civilization.

Thank you, [archiveofourown.org profile] merfilly!

The [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico fundraising auction to help Puerto Rico has begun! It closes on Monday 10/23. They have offers of fanfic, fanart, fancrafts, and even donated professional merchandise!

I'd love to support through this effort, but I haven't yet seen any offer specifically mentioning one of my fandoms. (Some offers do say "anything I've written" or "anything on my profile.") Of course I can support through other avenues! It's just nice to count in as a fan.

No fan-sponsored effort for the California wildfires?

As mentioned in the last monthly bulletin, [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico is fundraising via fanwork auction to help Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Creator sign-ups remain open through tomorrow (10/15). The auction is now scheduled to start on Tuesday 10/17 and close on Monday 10/23.Skimming, I see such fandoms as Agent Carter, Wynonna Earp, Teen Wolf, Supernatural, Stargate, all the Treks, MCU, DCU, HP, BtVS, XF, PoI, Star Wars, and many, many more. (I don't see FK, HL, D&DC, or YB, or any creator names I recognize. Yet?)

Has anyone seen a fan-sponsored effort for the California wildfires? I know that we're all feeling disaster-fatigue at this point! But I'm breathing that air. This latest disaster is no less real than the first. ♥

From the [community profile] harvey_fanaid fundraiser for hurricane relief, I made a donation and [archiveofourown.org profile] merfilly generously wrote a new Forever Knight story for us all to enjoy:

"Callings" (~2K words) (gen, G) (Nick, Schanke, Stonetree, Natalie; memories of Lacroix, Joan of Arc)

I supplied the prompt: "stained-glass windows." We received a full episode pared down to the essential beats and signs of an investigation, insights, and flashbacks. It's rich in metaphors, parallels, and first-season sensibility.

Thank you, [archiveofourown.org profile] merfilly!

For the month of September, in my corners of social journaling, here are the Forever Knight items that I happened to see:

Fandom PSAs

  • Any known Mexico City earthquake fan efforts?
  • [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico is fundraising via fanwork auction to help Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. The designated charity is ConPRmetidos. Creator sign-ups go through 10/15, with the auction starting 10/21 (closing TBA).
  • [community profile] harvey_fanaid closed on 9/30. (I was able to donate to a charity, and a fellow fan is writing a new story! I hope lots of others could, too.)

Ficathons, fests & communities that welcome FK

FK fanfiction & other fanworks

News & conversation:

  • 9/14: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien summarized and linked to another live Q&A by some of the in-production movie actors and directors. Rights issues are blamed for the movie being so fundamentally unlike our FK that their Nick doesn't even want to be human.
  • 9/07: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien shared a look at the in-production movie's new title logo, and summarized an earlier live Q&A by some of the movie's PTB.

For the month of August, in my corners of social journaling, here are the Forever Knight items that I happened to see:

Fannish charity fundraisers

Ficathons, fests & communities that welcome FK

FK fanfiction & other fanworks
Archive of our Own (AO3) Summary: 4 of the 787 FK stories on the AO3 show posting dates in August.

News & conversation:

  • 8/05: [personal profile] abby82 proposed and illustrated actress Caroline Dhavernas to play Janette in a more faithful series reboot than the currently-in-production movie.
  • 8/10: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien updated us on the filming of the upcoming movie. (Why they paid to use the FK title and character names to apparently reincarnate Angel: The Series remains unknown.)
  • 8/15: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien wished Ben Bass a (belated) happy birthday.
  • 8/19: [personal profile] pj1228 announced the sequel ("One Death Too Many") to the story she wrote for this year's FKFicFest ("One Loss Too Many"), and promised a concluding third installment.

brightknightie: Cassiopeia, in uniform (Other Fandom BSG)
Some years ago, when there was a natural disaster or the like, various corners of fandom would organize fundraisers in which people with more time and talent than money would create a new fannish work in "exchange" for a donation to the cause by someone else, often in auction format.

Have you seen any of those for the flooding in Texas?

I have no time recently, but I do have the wherewithal to donate just now, and I haven't yet donated to a charity for this disaster, so I thought that I might join forces with someone and sponsor a fanwork as well and direct my donation to that person's preferred charity, if that sort of thing is still done...?

Just a quick signal-boost for [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid, the multi-fandom charity-auction community. They're holding a buy-it-now fundraising campaign to aid earthquake victims in Nepal.

I'm afraid that I'm too ridiculously busy to volunteer my writing for auction right now, but if someone offers fanworks in my fandoms, please let me know.

(I know that I've missed one monthly FK bulletin update already, and it looks like I'm going to be late with the next at the end of this week, but I haven't forgotten! I will catch up and fill in the blanks as soon as I can, truly. Fingers crossed and all the lucky gestures.)
brightknightie: Janette and Schanke in the Raven (LaCroissant)

Due to both connectivity issues and personal issues, I haven't been reading here since mid-October.  (I hope to be back to normal on both fronts starting... now!) Thus, this list is merely what I found tonight, with a heavy reliance on tags (e.g. "fk," "forever knight") to locate relevant material; if I've missed something, please hook me up! It looks to have been a fairly quiet month, FK-wise.

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

Ficathons, Fests and Communities

  • [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid is raising funds in support of victims of Superstorm Sandy.
  • [community profile] festivids assignments went out on 10/16.
  • I still can't believe that FK is not eligible for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest. But [community profile] fic_promptly will accept us for commentfic!
  • Many people posted Yuletide "Dear Author" letters. FK appears in only Greer's, as far as I saw [Addendum: Also in Twilight2000's]. (BTW, thanks to [personal profile] sholio for confirming that you don't have to be signed up for Yuletide to give treats or pick up pinch-hits. Anyone can still play through those avenues!)

Fanfiction
3 FK works on AO3 currently show October 2012 as their publication dates. All three are new-to-me crossovers; two are by the same author.

Meta (Essays, Analysis, Discussion)

Actors:
10/16: [Locked] shared that in 2013, the Stratford Festival (which has apparently dropped the "Shakespeare" from its name) will boast GWD in Measure for Measure and Mary Stuart, plus NB in Thrill (official press release PDF).

Airings:
Chiller will next air FK on Friday 11/23 (6AM-5PM, DK-FIHS). In the US, that's "Black Friday," the day after Thanksgiving; if you'll have that day off work, tune in!


brightknightie: Nick as US Civil War doctor (Medicine)
[livejournal.com profile] helpthesouth is a fanworks auction for charities in support of the victims of the recent tornadoes in the southeastern United States.  This auction will close on 05/25/11 at 6 PM Central Time.  See their introduction and questions posts for details.

At this time, their "word works" offers do not seem to include any of my fandoms, but there may be some in yours, and they have other offering categories as well.
