FK Fanfic: "A Delicate Balance"  

I began posting my oldschoolfic ficathon story to fkfic-l today.  I'm grateful to amilyn for the ficathon prompt, and her enthusiastic reception of the story!  And I'm obliged to my generous beta-readers (see the story's end note) as always.  This is the longest piece I've yet written solely from Natalie's perspective.

  •  Title: "A Delicate Balance"
  •   Length: ~9,900 words
  •   Date: Posted to FKFic-L July 27-29, 2008
  •   Rating: PG (gen)
  •   Summary: Natalie takes a break from a murder investigation to attend an unusual memorial for her brother, while considering a new approach to Nick's condition.
  •   Setting:   After "1966."  Flashbacks to Natalie's childhood.
  •   Characters:   Natalie, Nick, Schanke, Richard, Sara, Nana, Janette, Grace, Stonetree, Tracy and others.
  •   Quotation: "The mesmerism-enforced lie that had covered Richie's vampirism curdled on Natalie's tongue."

Addendum:  By the way, the fkfic-l "ACK" states that the posts are reaching 279 recipients.  (I presume that is "mail" and "digest," not "nomail," but I don't know for sure.)  Those of you who have FK fanfic you've posted on LJ but not the list, please do consider sharing with the biggest FK audience still assembled.  We miss you.

Re: Delicate Balance
Thank you very much for reading "A Delicate Balance" and letting me know you did! I don't have any plans at the moment to continue this story. However, I did have an idea for an entirely separate story starring Janette and Natalie while Nick is away, and if that might appeal to people, I will try to bring it into focus.

(Off the top of my head, I can't think of any stories to recommend for really in-depth conversations between Natalie and Janette, but you might try Calliope's "This End Will Serve" or Ophelia's "Good Taste," if you're interested.)

Again, thank you!
