A happy St. Nicholas Day (Nick's name day) to all, and a happy Hanuka starting soon! This reminds me to set out my beloved Forever Net Before Christmas zine so that I can reread its holiday FK stories as part of my Advent joys. (If you don't have the zine, try my "trope:holidays" tag? Over the years, I've linked to as many of its stories as I've found online, and many other FK holiday tales besides).
Now, to business! For the month of November, in my corners of social journaling, here are the Forever Knight items that I happened to see:

Back in 2011's fandom_stocking/fandom_stocking game, I ambitiously posted six little stories, one to every stocking that had wished for FK that year. Four of these pieces, I shared on fkfic-l and archived in the usual way. The other two went into a kind of purgatory; each had a unique challenge that I discovered through audience responses, and each I thought I should rewrite, recast, recreate to address its challenge. I never did.
leela_cat once advised me to formally tie off those two, the better to stop thinking of them as eternally to-be-done. I finally did that this weekend, archiving them to the AO3 with only a wash and wax, not a new transmission. I backdated both to Epiphany 2011:
My thanks to the kind people who played Fandom Stocking that year, giving me an opportunity to explore these characters and learn valuable storytelling lessons!
