What's Good? Opening a new year, I'm pleased to get to spotlight lastscorpion's "Full of Grace" (2011, PG, ~7K words) in the recommendation-of-the-month project. I try not to plunder fkficfest/fkficfest for recommendations; we've all just recently read those! But last week, I chatted with someone who had never read a rich Grace Balthazar story, and this fantastically canonical epistolary tale from FKFicFest '11 not only shapes a rounded life for Grace, it builds an arc of her relationship with Natalie, and explodes into its climax.
Something terrible has happened, something unbelievable. I'm going to need to tell you the whole story in writing, so I can get it clear in my head. Then I'll call you in a couple of days, when Natalie's well enough to travel, and ask you if I can please take her home to you and the family for a while.
What's New on FKFic-L? December saw no stories on the email list. January so far has seen one (the shorter of the two FK Yuletide pieces).
