For the month of May, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here are the items that I spotted:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- rarepairfest, a multifandom pairing ficathon, has nominations open through June 15 and sign-ups through June 28.
- genprompt_bingo, a multifandom "bingo card" community, is holding its third round through August 31. (Gen fills aren't mandated, only gen prompts.)
- fkficfest/fkficfest, the annual FK fanfic exchange, opened sign-ups on May 21. They continue through June 7. Stories come due on August 9. Come play! Announcements/promos have appeared on last_writes, fandomcalendar, oldschoolfic and ForKni-L.
- rarewomen, the annual multifandom ficathon exchange focused on underwritten women characters, released its 2014 collection on May 11, including two FK stories.
- As always, the recommendation communities fanart_recs, fancake, bestthingever and het_reccers seek reccing volunteers.
- From the rarewomen game:
- 5 FK works on the AO3 currently show May 2014 as their publication date, including the two from Rarewomen and three by two other authors.
