FK Recommendation September 2011

What's Good?  This month, I am thrilled to get to spotlight annlarimer's landmark "Knighty-Knight, Nick" (1996, G, ~1K) in the recommendations project.  Read it aloud (really).  This sparkling retelling of the cancellation experience in the style of a children's picture book is silly and snide, nostalgic and grieved, rousing and defiant.  It may make you cry; it may make you write.

     They all lived in a television show, and even though a whole lot of real people loved them enough to make them real as well, Nick and Nat and Don and LaCroix and Janette belonged -- lock, stake, and barrel -- to a whole lot of people in suits and neckties.
     Now, as everyone knows, every time you put on a suit and a necktie, the necktie chokes away a little bit of your soul. And the people who owned Nick and Nat and Don and LaCroix and Janette had been wearing neckties for years and years and years, and hardly had any souls left.

By the way, the "Amy" mentioned is amilyn, not me, and yes, this is the second "Susan's Birthday Story" recommendation in a row, extending that memorial.

What's New on FKFic-L?  August brought six stories by four authors to the list, all from [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest.  September so far has seen three posts by one author. 

(As a reminder, FKFicFest players are invited to add their stories to the FKFicFest AO3 Collection by year to help more readers find their work.  There are FKFicFest stories on the AO3 that have not been affiliated with the collection; of course that is up to each author's choice!)
