Thirteenth Anniversary of the First Broadcast of "Last Knight"  
So.  The eighteenth of May, 2009.  A forkni-l digest dropped.  A new story hit fkfic-l.  Different more in scope than substance from the eighteenth of May, 1996...

Well, sure, except for the obvious. :-)  It really is a long time past, isn't it?  I'm still deeply glad for FK and the friends I made in it.  I'm grateful to still be in touch with as many as I am.  I'm grateful that the lists still live.  I'm grateful that when I watched "Hunters" recently, it was even better than I remembered (and "Outside the Lines" even worse).

A toast to the goldenplaid parody script!  A prayer for everyone who ever loved the show.  And thanks to you, who are reading now.

Thirteen years [sigh] The years do pass by

It's good to know where to find people who also remember!

Wow. It doesn't seem that long ago.

Or maybe I am deluding myself. ;-)

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so." :-)

But yes, I know what you mean. Unless I focus on its length and breadth, the time collapses neatly and fits in my pocket.

Amen! One of these days I really need to digitize the reading of the parody script at MediaWest, before the tape disintegrates.

I'd like to see that someday! (I made it to Syndicon '97, but neither MediaWest nor Bridging the Knight.)

The finest tribute I have to the show (other than my now-lifelong friends I found there) is the fact that I still miss those characters when I think about or visit them.

>"that I still miss those characters when I think about or visit them."

Some stories become beloved by tapping into deep, primal, shared archetypes.

I think that's not what FK does, that FK instead gives us such distinct individuals, with their keen-edged longings and idiosyncrasies, that once their archetyp shells crack for you and you see the individual, you never forget.
