Upcoming FK-Eligible Ficathons  
Sign-ups for the next oldschoolfic ficathon are due no later than this Sunday, October 26.  Assignments will be sent by the 28th, and the story queue will be released on New Year's Day.  See the rules and sign-ups post.  If you don't mind saying, has anyone signed up with an FK request?  I'm really wavering over whether to sign up.  The end of the calendar year is so very busy, both at work and personally.  If no one else were playing it for FK, I would let it go this time, I think.  (But if someone were playing FK, I wouldn't want to pass it up.)

Currently topping my hobby-time agenda for the weekend: replying to email, and then back to fussing about my last ficathon story, which didn't work out entirely, and so hasn't yet reached fkfic-l.  I would really like to post it to the list before the end of the month (or, at any rate, before November 4, US Election Day).  So I'll see whether I can do anything with it.

And then there's galpalficathon, the next ficathon for which FK is eligible, with no sign-ups, and stories due November 16.  I originally thought I would participate for sure, but with that last ficathon story still hanging, unposted to the list, I haven't touched it yet.  If I manage anything, it will be short.  I feel bad about that, because I posted many prompts.

Yuletide is beyond me, I think.  But you all should nominate and write FK there!  I'll read! :-)

I don't think I'm going to be participating in the next oldschoolfic ficathon. The format isn't the friendliest for me.

I am however giving your Janette doesn't like uncontrolled converts prompt in the galpalficathon a whirl. I've already written over a 1000 words so I think that's a promising start. Hopefully I can get it in on time.

I hope the revisions to "Fearful Symmetry" are coming along well. I look forward to reading the version with your final seal of approval.

>"The format isn't the friendliest for me."

Because of the assignments? Yes, I can see that. (I'm afraid that the one I received didn't include an FK prompt, and while of course that's the fair risk of a multi-fandom event, and I'll do everything I can for the requestor -- and I wouldn't have said I could write the other fandom if I couldn't! I can! -- I admit I'm a little disappointed.)

Oh, wow! Magnificent! That was such a wonderful boost to read earlier this week; I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to LJ and reply to you. I'm looking forward to reading it, and to pointing it out to some Ravens I know.

If I participate there, I will take one of wiliqueen's prompts, but it will just barely hit the 1K-word minimum.

Thank you! I appreciate the encouragement. I rewrote the Lacroix scene, and the scene with the Dean, and tinkered elsewhere. I hope I got it right -- I'm posting to fkfic-l now, this weekend; I have yet to update the one on the ficathon, or to put it on my site; I should do so Saturday night or Sunday -- but I'm afraid the ending is still weaker than it should be. Ah, well. This is its moment, I think, if it will ever have a moment. (You've read it, so it wouldn't be a spoiler to say that I think it is a story for before this US election, if you see what I mean.)

Thank you again for reading "Fearful Symmetry," as well as for the prompt. I really appreciate it.
