Recently in FK on my LJ Friends List and DW Reading Page:

[ profile] help_haiti

Everyone knows about [ profile] help_haiti by now, right?  The fannish community rewarding donations to Haiti relief with custom fic, beta services, and other things in an auction-like structure?  Bidding continues through January 20.  Thanks to everyone who is participating, and who has offered!  [ profile] eponymous_rose is cataloging offers by fandom.  It looks like the FK-specific offers at this time are from: Havocthecat, Triciabyrne1978, Amilyn and Devohoneybee.  [Addendum 01/18: rude_not_ginger and aescu are also offering FK, per [ profile] amilyn.]  (Leela-cat generously made a gesture in FK's direction, but you know she wants HP. ~g~)  [personal profile] amilyn has summarized some offers and information here and here

Vidfests, Ficathons and Gifts
  • On 01/17, [personal profile] sharpest_asp posted a reminder about the "Gen in January" ficathon, for which FK received one prompt (IB: Nick/Janette).  (It's a 500-words minimum, with prompts available to claim from a list, not assigned.)
  • On 01/14, [ profile] festivids went live, and [ profile] abby82 strongly recommended the vid she received in the exchange.  [personal profile] sharpest_asp agreed, and so did [ profile] ithildyn.  Count me in the consensus as well.  Set to "Cemeteries of London" by Coldplay, it's still anonymous, it's the only FK entry in the fest, and it is receiving copious praise for something from our sleepy fandom in a multifandom venue!  It's vampire-centric across all three seasons, features many of the neck-o'-the-week characters, and it musters the elusive "you could interpret this either way" that keeps us happily disagreeing to this day.  Knighties and Cousins may well see different feeds of this vid, and isn't that just the way it's supposed to be?
  • On 01/12, [personal profile] havocthecat pointed out [community profile] purimgifts/[ profile] purimgifts, a multi-fandom event reveling in characters who are Jewish and/or women and/or persecuted by evil viziers (FAQ). FK is eligible (every fandom is eligible).
  • On 01/06, [ profile] fandom_stocking released.  Four people were tagged as requesting FK stocking stuffers, and they all received at least one tiny FK trinket.
  • On 12/29, [ profile] gnosticdiva described the [ profile] dayofindulgence event, and noted that she's planning an FK entry, perhaps an adult scenario.

  • On 12/31, [ profile] abby82 pointed out that has all three seasons of FK (Region 1) on sale for $14.99.  Anyone not own yet?  Buy!  Convince them there's a market for slim sets and blu-ray and missing bits restored or packed as extras...
  • On 12/27, [ profile] pj1228 shared the great news that FK's first season will be released in Germany on 02/19/10, with German and English audio tracks.  Finally!  Cheers to all the German-speaking fans!  (Buy! So they'll release the other seasons, too.)  I can't wait to learn whether it's the full footage from the first German airing of first-season.  Granted, the differences are tiny per episode, mostly just longer establishing shots, but...

Cast and Crew and Airings
  • On 01/13, [ profile] abby82 shared that Mr. Parriot has won himself a new series, USA Network's Covert Affairs.  It stars Kari Matchett (Alyssa).
  • On 12/31, [ profile] abby82 filled us in -- at least, those of us who don't get the Chiller channel -- on GWD's "hosting" of Chiller's most recent FK marathon.  Actually, it was eight fun soundbites over amusing montages (seven GWD, 1 NB).  She has them all linked, and also points us to Chiller's YouTube Channel.  And as she points out, wow! that color quality.
