FK Recently: What you guys have been up to (3/01/17-3/31/17)

For the month of March, in my corners of social journaling, here are the Forever Knight items that I happened to see:

Ficathons, fests & communities that welcome FK

  • [community profile] fkficfest, the FK ficathon, had 10 sign-ups and sent its 2017 exchange matches. (Stories are due May 27.)
  • [community profile] genprompt_bingo, a low-commitment panfandom challenge game, has opened a new round. To play, request a card.
  • [community profile] springfest, a month-long panfandom prompt fest, is open for fills 04/02-04/30.
  • [community profile] familyex, a multifandom exchange focused on family relationships, has sign-ups through 04/02.
  • [community profile] soulexchange, a multifandom exchange focused on soulmate/soulbond tropes, has nominations through 04/01, and sign-ups through 04/09.
  • Just a reminder of known panfandom recommendation communities: [community profile] fanart_recs, het_reccers, [community profile] gensplosion, [community profile] recshelf, and [community profile] fancake. (Know more FK-friendly forums? Tell me about them!)

Sign-ups are open until this coming Friday, March 24, at 11:59 PM (how to sign up) (where to sign up). We currently have 7 sign-ups. I expect at least 1 more. I hope to be happily surprised by more than that...?

Ready to spread the word?

One player has already signed up for this year's [community profile] fkficfest. Yay, speedy person! I've got my own sign-up form in a TXT file. I'll tinker with it for a bit (we have until 11:59 PM Pacific on March 24).

I have this year's banner and promo post ready. I plan to start pinging one community per day either tonight or tomorrow. (I'm planning on [community profile] last_writes, [community profile] fandom_on_dw, and [community profile] fandomcalendar for sure. Maybe also femme_fic, [community profile] fksquee, [community profile] yuletide, yuletide, and oldschoolfic?)

Please do consider inviting fans to the game from your own journals, communities, and other venues! (Where does fandom hang out these days?) Feel free to use the banner if it serves you:

FKFicFest '17 sign-ups are now open

The 2017 rules and sign-ups post is now up on [community profile] fkficfest. Sign-ups are open!

(That took longer than expected. Sorry!)

Please come play with us this year. :-) FK is turning 25, and everyone is welcome! As you may remember, back in our fifth game, we declared a jubilee and wiped the slate clean; no one is suspended or banned in any way.

FKFicFest '17 sign-ups will open no later than March 11

As mentioned, I'll open this year's [community profile] fkficfest sign-ups no later than this Saturday, March 11. If you're thinking of playing (please do!), this may be a good time to start pondering what new FK stories you'd love to read, and what new prompts may inspire them!

Because there're so few of us, and because our interests can be so factional, if you've played before, it's not unlikely that your match this year could have received one of your prompt slates in a previous year. A freshly hatched prompt may be most likely to spark a blooming new story...? Not that recycled, rerun, never-attempted prompts don't also have their places!

Just something I've been dwelling on. :-)
