It's Susan's Birthday Month

LiveJournal recently reminded me that Susan G.'s birthday is coming soon, in that way LiveJournal has of suddenly, but gently, pinching you for not defriending your friends just for being dead.

As nearly every FK fan knows, August is Susan's Birthday Month,* a time best filled with FK fanfic — lots and lots of FK fanfic of all kinds — in honor of Susan, who meant, did and wrote so much for us. If you don't know Susan's marvelous stories, you have immense delights ahead of you! If you want recommendations, I'll gladly supply. For myself, I reread Susan's fanfiction both for sheer enjoyment and to learn to become a better FK writer.

This year, by community vote, [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest comes due on August 22, with stories beginning to release on August 24. We will therefore be filling the end of August and the start of September in a way that I hope Susan would (does) approve.

* Yes, PJ, it's also Lacroix's Conversion Day Month. ;-)

FKFicFest "post parade"

The "post parade" of this year's [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest players has passed the halfway point. If you're looking for something to read, this is an easy way to get acquainted with some of your fellow FK fans, and dip in for a taste of what may be coming in this year's game!

The deadline -- August 22 on the AO3! August 24 releases start! -- is rushing in all too fast for some of us. (Me, included!) As soon as the "post parade" concludes, I'll put up the "find a beta reader; be a beta reader" post. Come one, come all! Maybe you didn't have time to write this year, but might still help someone with some advice on making a story all it can be...?
