Playing FK Fiction Finder  
I received an email from Kelly G. asking after an FK story she almost remembers, but not quite enough to track down, and which she'd like to read again.  I didn't know it off the top of my head; do you?  Here's how she describes it:
"...a longer story, set during the third season, when LaCroix was broadcasting his show out of the Raven.  In this story, one of his listeners began to stalk him.  It was a young man, and he started to dress like LaCroix.  He showed up at the Raven every night, wanting to watch LaCroix and I think wanting LaCroix to notice him ... eventually he did become aware of this fan.  ...[T]here was another plotline involving some murders, and I think somehow these two plots met up towards the end."

It does almost sound familiar.  Perhaps I read it, but I perceived the aspect she describes as a subplot, and something else as the main plot?  Or perhaps I never read it at all.  (I did recommend that she ask on ForKni-L.)

Addendum 11/13/10: Kelly asked on ForKni-L, and the list answered: It's "Knight Lights" by J. L. Kerr, the main plot of which concerns Nick and Tracy searching for a pyromaniac.

Ack! This sounds familiar to me too -- and in the same "this sounds like the B-plot" way -- but I haven't a clue.

Here's hoping it clicks for someone! :-) One thought that crossed my mind: "I bet James would have tackled that plot if it had ever occurred to her."

Kelly let me know that she asked on ForKni-L, and the list identified "Knight Lights" by J. L. Kerr (the main plot of which has Nick and Tracy searching for a pyromaniac).

It does sound remotely familiar to me, too. My first thought was that it might be a story from a longer series? Or something from the virtual 4th season? My second thought was that it might be an UF story, but I discarded that possibility again, because in that case I should have recognized it because I happen to read those rather frequently. I'm sorry, I can't pinpoint it. Yet.

If anything occurs to you, please share; I'm curious.

Thanks for the info. I started reading it, and it occurred to me that I indeed haven't read it before. I enjoy J.L. Kerr's stories very much, and I thought I had read them all. But the beginning seemed unfamiliar to me. I'll see when I continue.
