- On July 16, amilyn posted "Somewhat Useful," a traditional drabble (100 words) featuring Schanke and Urs. (Yes, you read that right. It says, "Schanke and Urs." Honest. Credit the prompt to wiliqueen.)
- On July 14, ithildyn made remarks about a FK/Iron Man, Janette and Tony crossover idea. I can only assume that egging her on would be a positive step, even though the story could never be posted to fkfic-l (rules, rules).
- On July 11, abby82 posted her Schanke vid "The Rockafella Skank" to a song by Fatboy Slim. I am not familiar with this music genre, but the Schankeness is pure. It's a light-hearted, totally pre-"Black Buddha" production. (And it's the first vid she ever made.)
As for me, after a hectic, horrid, work week, I've used up just about all my hobby time this weekend reading and remarking on oldschoolfic ficathon stories by my fellow players, and thanking those who kindly replied to my story. What I want to be doing now is taking greerwatson's advice and adding a "Relative Reality" column to my Places & Things of the FK Universe list. Honestly, when I began it, I meant to list only the fictional things unique to FK (e.g. the Borchiver Award from "Can't Run, Can't Hide"). But I blundered into some that are quite real (e.g. Humbar Nurseries from "Only the Lonely") and greerwatson is very generously sharing her Toronto expertise to make the distinctions for the benefit of FK writers. I hope to get that scrubbed and up this week, if not this weekend. (What is it with Real Life, eternally interfering with fandom? ~g~)
Are there other FK-eligible ficathons on the horizon? If not, I've promised much_madness that I'll try to address her taste for ficlets (101-1000 words) in some way. And I still owe hearts_blood that NCIS/FK unbirthday crossover.
