Susan's Birthday Month  
In that startling way that it has, LiveJournal reminded me at bedtime last night that today is the birthday of the much-missed susanmgarrett.  As you know, Susan, who died in 2010, is the author of the second of the professional FK novels, Intimations of Mortality, and before that she was "Empress of FK Fic" — her excellence, productivity and generosity to FKdom are unparalled.  On the email lists, we used to have a tradition that August was "Susan's Birthday Month;" for her birthday, she would say in her email signature, she wanted "lots and lots" of new FK fanfiction... and she got it.

I like to think that holding [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest and fkcommentfic across Susan's Birthday Month would seem good to her.

Susan is my favorite FK fanfiction author.  Don't miss out!  Here are my top ten personal favorites among all her FK tales, roughly in order of how often I reread them:What other Susan stories are in your personal top-ten of her FK works?

In any top ten list one should never forget the importance of humour. So how about "Vampires Anonymous: Special Delivery"? The best of the three, I think. Short and sweet. (The first one started well, but veered away from comedy at the end, while "Bulking Up" should simply have ended with Nick wondering what LaCroix's revenge would be.)

"Dead Letters" (Urs and Lacroix) and "Assignment: Knight" (Jenny interviews Nick) are also favourites.
