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

Ficathons, fests and communities that welcome FK

  • [community profile] fkficfest, the FK ficathon community, announced the 2017 pre-game poll results.
    • Sign-ups will start no later than March 11.
    • Sign-ups will close at 11:59PM Pacific on March 24 (or maybe noon the next day).
    • Stories will be due May 27.
  • [community profile] halfamoon, the annual 2-week celebration of female characters, has wrapped up. (I don't know whether any FK characters appeared this year.)
  • [community profile] pbam, the "porn battle" fiction amnesty community, is accepting fills through March 15.
  • [community profile] onedeadplotbunny, a support/motivation creativity community, opened its latest round in February (no deadlines, no sign-ups).

As announced on the email lists by Lisa McD, the next FKFic-L "War" game begins on Sunday, January 13, 2013. If, like me, you're not playing, you can set your subscription to "-war" to avoid the war posts (unless you take digests, in which case there's no filtering). You can also read along without playing, of course! I would personally suggest holding any non-war fiction posts until February, but of course that's entirely up to each writer.

Now, for December, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:

Ficathons, Fests and Communities

  • [community profile] fandom_stocking will reveal on 01/06. Four people listed FK among their fandoms. Check out the volunteer post for stockings no one has yet stuffed.
  • [community profile] fkcommentfic/[ profile] fkcommentfic has received two entries so far in its "Bloor Mistletoe Challenge," which remains open through 01/06.
  • Yuletide garnered three FK stories this year, one an assigned exchange story, one a "treat," and one in "madness."
  • [personal profile] oxoniensis will hold her 2013 "Porn Battle" game this month, with prompting 01/13-17 and posting 01/20-30.


Meta (Essays, Analysis, Discussion)

  • 12/27: [ profile] twilight2000 recommended "Tainted Draught" (then anonymous; now revealed as Greerwatson's).
  • 12/25: [personal profile] sholio (here) and [personal profile] sharpest_asp (here) both recommended "Rondeau" (then anonymous; now revealed as Tolaska's).
  • 12/19: [ profile] mysticalcat7 announced that she has uploaded the January 1996 forkni-l digests to the forkni-l archive. As you know, that was when SOS-FK began. (As you also know, she purges some name/address information by default, and will kindly purge more by polite request of affected persons.)
  • 12/12: [personal profile] melissatreglia compiled all the FK prompts for the "Porn Battle" games amnesty, and announced the 2013 game dates and changes.
  • 12/05: [personal profile] melissatreglia mentioned posting her "Trains and Winter Rains" ficlet for [community profile] fkcommentfic.

12/15: [ profile] pj1228 shared a video clip and facts about GWD and NB's work in the upcoming 2013 Stratford Festival. Both will perform in Measure for Measure and Mary Stuart.

Chiller will not air FK in January or February. ~sigh~ Remember when FK was the SciFi Channel's idea of a great Valentine's Day marathon?

Chiller is not showing FK in August or September. Stream it on Hulu or Crackle instead.

(Aside: Is something weird with icons on LJ today?  My Schanke userpic is displaying as someone's fairy userpic.)

Recently, in FK on my LJ Friends List:

  • Celebrating Female Characters.  The [ profile] femme_fic ficathon, on 02/01, began accepting sign-ups.  They're unscreened this year, so take a look!  A wide variety of fandoms are offered.  Only one FK request is up so far, and while it's a very nice request, it would be outstanding if there were more.  (I'm hesitating over my sign-up because of Real Life obligations, or there would be two already.  But, you know, seduce me with more FK prompts and offers, right? ~g~)  Sign-ups are open through 02/28.
  • Celebrating Claire Rankin Characters[ profile] falcon_horus, from 01/23 through 01/28, collected prompts for her Claire Rankin-characters drabble-a-thon.  The prompts went up on 02/01, and there was a dash of conversation about Fleur and Natalie on 02/07.  All the drabbles posted so far are about Rankin's non-FK characters; I intend to produce at least one for Fleur.
  • Female Characters, and also NC-17[ profile] abby82, on 01/23, promoted two separate ficathon-style events, "Porn Battle VII" and [ profile] halfamoon, for which FK is eligible.  The [ profile] halfamoon community celebrates female characters, and their event runs 02/01-02/14.

  • Icons[ profile] ithildyn, on 02/03, pointed us to her freshly updated icons-to-share page, which includes FK icons, among many others.
  • Meme.  The "extras to order" fanfiction meme drew FK responses from [ profile] hearts_blood here and from [ profile] amilyn here.  And [ profile] ithildyn here and [ profile] havocthecat here offered, but no one asked them about FK.
  • Actors[ profile] pj1228, on 01/30, reviewed Just Buried, newly released on DVD (Region 1 only), which co-stars Nigel Bennett.
  • Conventions.  Someone who posted under a lock on 01/29 announced the "Breakout Before Moonlight" con this summer in London, and noted that while it's mainly a Moonlight con, some longtime FK fans will be there.
  • Nostalgia.  Someone who posted under a lock reminisced on 01/28 about a wacky multi-fandom round-robin story (including FK) that we participated in long ago.  Thanks for the memories!
  • Wiki[ profile] susanmgarrett, on 01/19, mentioned that she has been putting story listings on the Forever Knight Wiki, and invited authors to drop by and list their stories, or clean up entries. Separately, apparently someone had mislisted her as a Perk. Egad.
  • Fiction and Actors[ profile] abby82, on 02/01, posted a new story, "Illusions of Mortality," written for, um, "Porn Battle VII."  On 01/21, she shared scads of GWD photos from American Psycho 2 (2002), which she says was an intentionally campy movie costarring William Shatner.  Ger plays a psychiatrist.
