The story written for my own prompt slate in this year's fkficfest/fkficfest released today! It's "By Light of Day" (PG13, ~4K words) by skieswideopen. I had requested "a promising cure that does not fulfill its promise," and she supplied a scenario starring Nick, Feliks, Natalie, Schanke and Janette that diverges from canon sometime between the first and second seasons, and runs through hope, happiness, fear and frustration to renewed determination. Mmmmm, renewed determination! ;-)
I enjoyed it very much! Like many of the stories this year, it innovates cleverly, positing a scenario not quite like any other explored in all FK's years (as far as I know), and it does so with spot-on character voices and concerns. And Feliks Twist!
I'll come back soon with a list of reasons to read all the fanworks in this year's game; they all truly deserve attention! But for now, I recommend the one written specifically for me. Take a look!
