"a twinkie, a cockroach, and Janette"  
wiliqueen, please tell us about the time that you wrote: "The only things left at the end of the world will be a twinkie, a cockroach, and Janette." :-) [Edited to add: Wiliqueen replied on LJ!]

Everybody else, feel free to use that as a story prompt. ;-)

I happened to reread Susan G.'s little FK fanfic "The Last One" today (it's one of many of hers permanently on my Kindle), and it happily reminded me of how amazingly wide-ranging is FKdom's imagination, and how inspiring is our interplay with each other as we create. This story was a response to the "Asteroid Challenge," of course, the challenge to write stories set in alternate universes where the asteroid from "A More Permanent Hell" actually comes, and it was also inspired by Wiliqueen's remark (above).

Our fandom, guys. This is us! :-) One day to FKFicFest sign-ups...

P.S. If you don't yet know the FK corpus of the much-missed Susan G., go! Read! You are in for such a treat.

LOL! I don't recall that there was really any more context to it than that. Just that she's a survivor. :-)

I can't remember whether I first said it on FORKNI-L or in person at one fan gathering or another. MediaWest is a likely candidate.

Memories! <3

<3 Thank you for reminiscing! :-)

Yep, where a way exists, Janette will find and take it. I wish Susan's Three of a Kind (the one where Janette appears to die in a fire at the Raven) were available online for today's readers (it's one of the GWDFC fundraiser zines).

I didn't know Janette well yet when I perpetrated the Nevermore theory, but even that, even then, was wholly predicated on Nick keeping his fangs to himself.
