FK Recommendation October 2011  

What's Good?  With Halloween approaching, I am tickled to get to spotlight the appropriately frightening "Drowning" (2010, R, ~1K) by [archiveofourown.org profile] gryphonrhi in the recommendation-of-the-month project.  This chilling drama of villain-on-villain violence — mind the rating — characterizes Lacroix with resonant canonicity and ruthlessly celebrates the conundrum of Lacroix as Nick's antithesis and ally.

     A man whose collarbone is broken on each side does not easily draw a gun, which relieved me of one attacker. As for the other, it takes very little pressure for a vampire to break fingers, mortal or otherwise. I simply closed my hand around his on the gun and listened to his attempt to scream while inhaling.

What's New on FKFic-L?  September saw three stories by one author, all from the fkcommentfic game.  October so far has seen two stories, also by that author.

Again you come up with one I've missed! And well recommended, too: that strikes me as very much LaCroix's voice. It's interesting to read a story in which his focus is not primarily on Nick (though, admittedly, it does trend that way by the end).

I'm glad that you found Rhi's "Drowning" interesting and well-voiced! It's been too long since I last pointed to a Lacroix-centric story.
