Games

Assorted Ficathons

All the prompt slates have been out for one week in fkficfest, and I hope that everyone is having fun rewatching relevant episodes and getting inspired!  I'm dwelling on flashback possibilities, myself, and think I'll watch "Love You to Death" this weekend.

Over in oldschoolfic, they're projecting a long run at their summer ficathon event.  This is the ficathon for any canceled fandom (including FK), and their timeline is: sign-ups (04/01-04/15), matches sent (04/17), deadline to default in good grace (07/10), and stories due (07/31).  (That's two months after fkficfest, so it's entirely possible to play in both.)

And not to forget, [personal profile] celli's annual Tax Fic Challenge is open through 04/15.  FK is, of course, eligible.  The game is: write a fanfiction with taxes in it -- any sort of taxes count, so imperial Roman taxes, modern Canadian taxes, anything between and beyond.

Character Death

FK Fan Mary W.

Tuesday's forkni-l digest brought Lyn P.'s announcement that Mary W. has died.  It seems that she went by other names in other fandoms (FiliaDeCiara, Lightweaver), in case you knew her there. 

She posted one big story to fkfic-l, "Behold, I Make All Things New" in 2003, and she was so kind as to thank me in her author's note for the conversation we'd had when she just discovered online FKdom.  She had been a little hesitant, and then surprised and delighted, that FK fandom was full of people who took faith and religion seriously and also politely -- while playing, you know, with vampire fantasy.  By then, it seemed entirely normal to me, if it had ever seemed anything else, so sharing her pleased discovery was fun.

My condolences to her friends and family.

And while we're here, also to Abby's, and Judy's, and Lynne's, and Mary Lou's, and Christy's.  My apologies to anyone I'm not immediately remembering.
