LiveJournal recently reminded me that Susan G.'s birthday is coming soon, in that way LiveJournal has of suddenly, but gently, pinching you for not defriending your friends just for being dead.
As nearly every FK fan knows, August is Susan's Birthday Month,* a time best filled with FK fanfic — lots and lots of FK fanfic of all kinds — in honor of Susan, who meant, did and wrote so much for us
. If you don't know Susan's marvelous stories, you have immense delights ahead of you! If you want recommendations, I'll gladly supply. For myself, I reread Susan's fanfiction both for sheer enjoyment and to learn to become a better FK writer.
This year, by community vote, fkficfest
comes due on August 22, with stories beginning to release on August 24. We will therefore be filling the end of August and the start of September in a way that I hope Susan would (does) approve.* Yes, PJ, it's also Lacroix's Conversion Day Month. ;-)Comments on Dreamwidth:
