FK Fanfic: "Wake and Remember"  

In the rarewomen game this year, I received [profile] falconhorus's prompt slate. I very seriously considered her Sleepy Hollow request for Katrina (I rewatched every episode!), but naturally, as you doubtless could have predicted all along and saved me the fuss and fretting, I instead ended up writing for her Forever Knight request for Fleur.

On the AO3: "Wake and Remember"
Length:6,265 words
Date:May 2013
Rating:PG-13 (vampire behavior)
Characters:Fleur, Nick, Original Characters; off-screen references to Lacroix, Janette, Andre, Lord Delabar
Setting:1247 Artois (before "Fallen Idol") and 1229 Brabant (after "Be My Valentine")
Summary:Fleur's memory of her own youthful romantic rebellion does not create great sympathy with her daughter's.
Quotation:"You wanted to save me. Do you want to save yourself?"

I got to leverage research that I've done for previous stories set in Europe's middle ages, but my discovery of the Paston Letters was new just for this game; it inspired this tale. My thanks to [personal profile] skieswideopen, V. and [personal profile] argentum_ls for helping at various stages of brainstorming, unblocking and proofreading!

Fleur is arguably the most important guest star in Forever Knight, but she is, indubitably, only a guest star. I know. I'm very lucky that kind people like [profile] falconhorus, and my brainstormers, beta-readers and you are willing to play with the character with me! Thank you, all!
