Happy Canada Day and US Independence Day!
For the month of June, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here are the items that I spotted:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- fkficfest/fkficfest exchange matches went out on 6/08 at two minutes to midnight! Stories come due in the A03 on 8/09 and begin releasing on 8/11. This month, there will be a "post parade" of this year's players, with links to their past stories (written and received)!
- fancake, a multifandom theme rec community, is holding an "urban fantasy" round. FK is eminently eligible!
- rarecharacters/rarecharacters, a multifandom exchange, holds nominations through 7/15.
- Signal boosting from havocthecat: metanews is in danger of closing unless they gain more mods. Can you help?
- As always, the recommendation communities fanart_recs, fancake, bestthingever and het_reccers could use reccing volunteers.
- Addendum per skieswideopen: genficexchange/genficexchange, a multifandom gen fic exchange game, has open nominations through 7/12.
- "D is to Dine" (a D-Day anniversary story) by greerwatson (on her own site)
- "The Vampire LaCroix" by 1_mad_squirrel (on the AO3)
- 1 FK work on the AO3 currently shows June 2014 as its publication date.
Meta (Discussion, Essays, Actor Updates, Etc.)
- 6/06: greerwatson discussed her design for displaying her latest FK fanfic on her website.
- 6/13: wiliqueen observed that Anaïs Delva, an actress/singer in that Frozen "Let it Go" multi-language video, reminds her of Deborah Duchene.
- 6/22: pj1228 noted that Nigel Bennett appears in season 5, episode 5 of Rookie Blue and shares a scene with Ben Bass (who is a regular on that show, of course).
- 6/24: pj1228 observed that Nigel Bennett briefly appeared again in season 5, episode 6 of Rookie Blue.
- 6/25: pj1228 reviewed the play The Last Confession (Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto), in which Nigel Bennett is performing.
- Addendum: 5/17: skieswideopen, in iconitis, entered 8 FK userpic icons in a "first fandom" challenge.
