Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Hanukah!  
Happy (US) Thanksgiving! Happy Hanukah! What are your favorite Thanksgiving and Hanukah fanfictions in fandoms I may know (especially FK, HL, YB, original BSG)? Please link me!

My own favorite Hanukah fanfic is the counterintuitively named "I'll Be Home for Christmas," a Forever Knight story by Marian G. (December '93) that's not available online, but you can enjoy it if you can find the hard-copy zine Forever Net Before Christmas edited and produced by Valery K. (or if you visit me in person, you may read it from my shelf ~grin~).

Off the top of my sleep-deprived, holiday-hurried head, however, I can't think of a single Thanksgiving story. How odd!

Well, you know where to go to find them. (Mind you, there are still only two listed.)

Yep, definitely, and the AO3's tags serve where they can, too. :-)

Thanksgiving seems a strangely under-served holiday for fanfiction, which puzzles me. Inside FK, of course, we could note that a holiday primarily celebrated by a meal -- and one usually eaten before sunset, at that -- is a huge obstacle for the vampire characters, and of course it's of limited service for flashbacks outside Canada and the US, and before certain historic markers. Yet it's also rare in other fandoms without comparable canon obstacles, while it's exceedingly common in comics canon (back when I read the X-books, they had a Thanksgiving issue almost every year) and while not as frequent as Christmas or Halloween episodes on television, is nevertheless more common than, say, Easter or Valentine's episodes.

Just musing...

I have one. You can find it at https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnx3YWx0c3dlYnBhZ2V8Z3g6NDM5YTRkNzlkYWM0MjlhNA
at least I think you can. Or you can try searching Google for "forever knight thanksgiving" It's on "Walt's webpage", 4 Calendar Series, 10a October, "Thanksgiving". Canadian Thanksgiving is in October.

Thanks, Walt. :-) Do you want to alert Greer to this item, for the completeness of her cataloging?

In fact, thanks to Walt mentioning it here, I've just done a page for it.
