FK Recently: What You Guys Have Been Up To (05/01/14-05/31/14)  

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.
  • [community profile] genprompt_bingo, a multifandom "bingo card" community, is holding its third round through August 31. (Gen fills aren't mandated, only gen prompts.)
  • [community profile] 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 [community profile] last_writes, [community profile] 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 [community profile] fanart_recs, [community profile] fancake, [community profile] bestthingever and het_reccers seek reccing volunteers.

Ok, now I'm confused. I'm pretty sure it served as the outside view in all 3 seasons. Undoubtedly in seasons 2 and 3. In Ashes to Ashes they didn't even bother to cover the Fluid Lounge sign when Lacroix returns from his stroll.

Re: confused
You're correct about the exteriors!

I was thinking of the interiors. In FK's first season, the interior Raven scenes were filmed inside the real Fluid Lounge. In the second and third seasons, FK used a set for the Raven interior.

Oh, I didn't know that! Now I even more want to visit the venue to see what's left from the former interior. Thanks for the explanation.

Re: confused
Yes, this is why the first-season Raven is so very much more detailed, so much more full of things (for example, the garlands in the rafters), and so much darker (except in "Love You to Death," when it's not in use and all the lights are on): it's a real club. :-)
