FK Fanfic: "Scrubbed Clean"  

This is the fandom_stocking story that I wrote for [personal profile] skieswideopen this year.  She wrote that she likes “outsider POVs,” “slice of life” and “bittersweet endings” (and, of course, Forever Knight).  I'm pretty satisfied with it.  I think it's different, and that it achieves an appropriate structure.

My thanks to [personal profile] celli for her supportive beta-reading and perceptive suggestion!

  Available: My Fansite | The AO3
  Length: 1,996 words
  Date: Fandom Stocking 01/07/12, FKFic-L 01/18/12
  Rating: PG
  Characters:  OFC, Janette, Nick, Lacroix
  Summary: In 1275 Troyes, Janette's laundress discerns the hidden nature of her household.
  Quotation: "She had learned just what combination of wood ashes and caustic soda salvaged a gentleman's tunic soaked in blood, precisely how much fine Spanish hard soap rescued a lady's choicest linen spattered with blood, and the secret technique of restoring furs stiffened by blood."

I loved this! Where do you prefer to receive your comments? I left a more extensive one at the AO3.

Thank you!
Thanks for reading, and thanks for commenting in both places! ;-) I revel in feedback anywhere: on AO3, LJ/DW, or by email reply to fkfic-l posts.

On reflection, I suppose that the AO3 is the best place for most ordinary feedback -- it informs (attracts?) other readers -- but that discussion/analysis that leads to conversation works better on LJ/DW. (I'd perhaps be reluctant to have conversations on the archive, as they diverge from the story and explore canon, or other stories, or whatever.) Of course anything personal is best in email.

I agree. Feel free to discuss any of my remarks on your story here.
