FK Recently: What You Guys Have Been Up To (12/01/12-12/31/12)  

As announced on the email lists by Lisa McD, the next FKFic-L "War" game begins on Sunday, January 13, 2013. If, like me, you're not playing, you can set your subscription to "-war" to avoid the war posts (unless you take digests, in which case there's no filtering). You can also read along without playing, of course! I would personally suggest holding any non-war fiction posts until February, but of course that's entirely up to each writer.

Now, for December, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:

Ficathons, Fests and Communities

  • [community profile] fandom_stocking will reveal on 01/06. Four people listed FK among their fandoms. Check out the volunteer post for stockings no one has yet stuffed.
  • [community profile] fkcommentfic/fkcommentfic has received two entries so far in its "Bloor Mistletoe Challenge," which remains open through 01/06.
  • Yuletide garnered two FK stories this year, one an assigned exchange story and one a "treat."
  • [personal profile] oxoniensis will hold her 2013 "Porn Battle" game this month, with prompting 01/13-17 and posting 01/20-30.


Meta (Essays, Analysis, Discussion)

  • 12/27: twilight2000 recommended "Tainted Draught" (then anonymous; now revealed as Greerwatson's).
  • 12/25: [personal profile] sholio (here) and [personal profile] sharpest_asp (here) both recommended "Rondeau" (then anonymous; now revealed as Tolaska's).
  • 12/19: mysticalcat7 announced that she has uploaded the January 1996 forkni-l digests to the forkni-l archive. As you know, that was when SOS-FK began. (As you also know, she purges some name/address information by default, and will kindly purge more by polite request of affected persons.)
  • 12/12: [personal profile] melissatreglia compiled all the FK prompts for the "Porn Battle" games amnesty, and announced the 2013 game dates and changes.
  • 12/05: [personal profile] melissatreglia mentioned posting her "Trains and Winter Rains" ficlet for [community profile] fkcommentfic.

12/15: pj1228 shared a video clip and facts about GWD and NB's work in the upcoming 2013 Stratford Festival. Both will perform in Measure for Measure and Mary Stuart.

Chiller will not air FK in January or February. ~sigh~ Remember when FK was the SciFi Channel's idea of a great Valentine's Day marathon?

Did you miss the other FK story I wrote for Yuletide? It was posted late, so had to go in the Madness collection.

Yes; I saw that it existed in the December count, but did not realize that it was affiliated with Yuletide. I will correct my December "recently" bulletin now. Thank you for pointing it out.

(I should perhaps note that I have not yet had a chance to read any of the Yuletide stories. I will be reading the FK ones, as well as some others.)

Yuletide does get a bit confusing, with its two subcollections.

Yuletide Madness is for ficlet-length treats. However, as it doesn't open until Boxing Day, any full-length stories that are finished on Christmas Day may also be posted to it. (And then there's the New Year's Resolutions collection, for stories that are really late.)

I was so busy getting Christmas ready that I only got two treats written by the main deadline. However, my sister and the friend she was staying with went home fairly soon after dinner on Christmas Day, which meant that I still had time to write two more treats for the Madness collection.
