FK Fan Susan F., deceased  
Monday's forkni-l digest and a locked LJ post together brought the news that FK fan Susan Ellen F. has died of cancer (public announcement via Libratsie, from April H.).

Her humorous UFer fanfiction is here, and her serious fanfiction collaborating with April H. is here.  She and April had a novel nominated in the '99 FK Fanfic Awards.  She was heavily involved in "Kickstart the Knight"!  In 2004, she and Nancy K. re-issued the "Conversion Day" Challenge as a Crusader newsletter contest.

I'm afraid that I knew Susan F. only from the list, and we've had no contact in years.  However, it's very easy to see that she will be widely missed.  My condolences to her friends and family.

Thank you for sharing the links to Susan's fanfiction. I wasn't sure if she had posted her stories elsewhere than the UF list.

Susan F.'s Fanfic
You're very welcome for the links. I noticed that Susan F.'s fanfic wasn't on the Former FTP Site; I suppose that her serious stuff must be in April H.'s folder, because they were collaborating, and her silly stuff was posted only to the UF list before being archived on the personal site that they shared.

It's always sad to hear of the death of someone who was once active in the fandom. We do still have her stories, of course. Nevertheless, she is gone and will be missed by all her friends.

Yes, it's difficult to see the circle shrink...
