Recently in FK in my corners of social journaling:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- rarewomen is underway, and is also periodically posting unmatchable requests and pinch-hits for claiming.
- oldschoolfic, the ficathon for canceled fandoms, almost had too few players, but they appear to have pulled through.
- month_of_meta/month_of_meta aims to fill March with fannish non-fiction (essays, analysis, discussion, etc.).
- celli launched "The 10th Annual Unofficial Taxfic Challenge," a multi-fandom challenge-style ficathon due 04/17 (the US federal income tax deadline this year).
- scifibigbang includes FK among its promotional banners.
- fkficfest/fkficfest is planning an exchange-style game with a July due date. (Schedule TBA by April.)
- 2/23: hearts_blood posted a revised version of her vignette "Warmth" (G, 690 words, Nick and Urs).
- 2/04: hearts_blood posted "Lost Boys and Golden Girls" (G, ~600 words) in reply to a "Tracy/Vachon, kiss, docks" prompt in a Cuddle/Kiss/Sex fic meme. (Then she locked it, because it had not been beta-read and revised.)
- 4 FK works on AO3 currently show February 2012 publication dates. (I believe that one is new, and three are old.)
Meta (Chatter, Discussion and Essays)

- greerwatson is sharing faction userpic icons: 2/25, 2/20, 2/18, 2/14 and 2/12.

- 2/02: gnosticdiva included FK in a WIP meme.
- 2/02: hearts_blood included an FK line in a WIP meme, and then posted a FK WIP draft called "Wrong Side" and requested opinions on whether and how to finish it.
