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.

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.
