I began this blog as an annex of my Bright Knight fansite, but I suppose the site may now be an annex of the blog!
I've been a member of Forever Knight's online fandom since shortly after "The Human Factor" aired in early 1996, when I so wanted to discuss that episode that I braved the wilds of the unfamiliar Internet, and discovered the haven of ForKni-L. When I began in fandom, it was all about the discussion for me, but with time it's become mostly about the fanfiction (my FK fanfic, my other fanfic, my FK recommendations, my AO3). I'm a Knightie: a follower of Nick in the FKFic-L "War" round-robin game, and a partisan of Nick in most interpretations. I try not to subscribe to any exclusionary take on the series, but the "bright" in my handle is telling (I usually leave "dark" to others). That is, while I love serious and sad stories, I side with humanity, hope and salvation, never vampirism, despair or destruction. I'm a proponent of canon over all — though I duck and weave past "Last Knight" and first season is far and away my favorite.
Why am I still in love with Forever Knight over fifteen years after cancellation? It was an outstanding show with a magnificent metaphor. And I met the most wonderful and compelling people along the way. It's my home fandom, and it still makes me happy.
I hope my LJ and website can share a little of that FK happiness with you.
[ I usually get to play fandom only on weekends these days. Please excuse me if it takes me a while to reply. You can contact me at the same email address I've used on the FK email lists for over a decade, or the standard LiveJournal email address for my blog, or reply to one of my posts. ]
