galpalficathon FK Prompts  
The prompts are not yet consolidated over at galpalficathon, but in case you're toying with the notion of playing in their no-pressure, no-claiming, barely-a-deadline celebration of female friendship, the Forever Knight prompts that I've spotted are: 

By wiliqueen (here)

  • Tracy and Urs / "Whoever said blondes have more fun needs to be shot."
  • Natalie and Tracy / 2 a.m. pizza
  • Natalie and Grace / "We should sell tickets."
  • Crossover with Blood Ties / Natalie Lambert and Rajani Mohadevan / second interview

By me (here, and here, and here)

  • Natalie and Janette / sudden road trip
  • Natalie and Janette / the bullet removed in "A Fate Worse Than Death"
  • Natalie and Janette / Natalie thanks Janette for taking care of her at the Raven during "A More Permanent Hell."
  • Natalie and Janette / Nick is out of town, and there's a vampire's victim on Natalie's table. The case must be solved, but Natalie can't let the detectives stumble into the Enforcers.

  • Natalie and Tracy / Natalie and Tracy both dislike Nick listening to CERK.
  • Natalie and Cohen / "A wrongdoer is often one who has left something undone, not always one who has done something." -- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
  • Natalie and Grace / "They've cut my budget all to hell. I've got to lose two of the attendants from my shift, and they've all got families. Worst of it is, they've got nothing to go to." -- from "Cherry Blossoms"
  • Natalie and Grace / dating (people other than Nick)
  • Natalie and Urs / What if Urs asked to become Natalie's second patient in search of a cure?
  • Natalie and Fleur / "Time is a river without banks" -- anonymous saying

  • Janette and Cohen / professional courtesy
  • Janette and Grace / book club
  • Janette and Urs / women's occupations during World War II
  • Janette and Fleur / Nick's introduction of Janette to his sister and mother as his "traveling companion" didn't exactly resolve her social status in their eyes, did it?
  • Janette and Sofia ("If Looks Could Kill") / Once in a very great while, even Janette needs a shoulder to cry on.
  • Janette and Francesca / before Nick
  • Janette and Anna ("A Fate Worse Thank Death") / fluent in both French and English

  • Crossover with Ghost Whisperer / Natalie and Melinda / Richard's ghost has unresolved business with his sister.
  • Crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Janette and Faith / "Know your place" -- anonymous saying
  • Crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Natalie and Willow / the fever for which Natalie discovered a cure, which might otherwise have wiped out vampires
  • Crossover with Highlander / Janette and Amanda / Like Amanda, Nick performed in the circus ("Last Act"). Surely Janette has been in the audience.
  • Crossover with Highlander / Janette and Rebecca / When Janette decided she wanted to know how to really use a sword...
  • Crossover with Young Blades / Janette and the Queen / discretion
  • Crossover with Young Blades / Janette and Jacqueline / revenge
  • Crossover with Moonlight / Natalie and Beth / Natalie was 28 when Nick first sat up on her table, and just shy of 30 when she encountered her second vampire. Beth was fresh out of college when Mick emerged from the shadows of her life, with his whole world hard on his heels.
  • Crossover with Blood Ties / Natalie and Rajani Mohadevan / Who would ever have thought there'd be such competition for the night shift?
  • Crossover with Blood Ties / Janette and Vicki / Janette needs a private investigator for a touchy issue she doesn't want Nick to know about.
  • Crossover with Stargate: Atlantis / Tracy and Cadman / promotion
  • Crossover with Life on Mars (UK) / Janette and Annie / buried on the back pages

I regret now not including a prompt for Natalie and Lora Haynes (the friend who suicides in "Last Knight"), but then again, I may have overdone it as it is.  The goal is to excite and intrigue someone into writing new FK, not to frighten them off by too many possibilities!

I've been spending almost all my hobby time lately researching my oldschoolfic Round II story, which of course means I have not yet begun writing it, and it will end up shorter than otherwise.  Poor Nick.  The first serious, substantive thing I promise to write from his perspective in five years -- the Doctor Who parody doesn't count -- and I twiddle away all my writing time boning up on the historical era.  Bad Knightie... Learning a lot, though!

Great googly moogly! These prompts are all fantastic. There are so many possibilities. You and wiliqueen really outdid yourselves.

Well you've definitely succeeded at exciting. It's insane how great they are.

wiliqueen's Tracy and Urs prompt has the possibility of being a lot of fun as does her Natalie and Grace prompt.

I love your Natalie and Janette with Nick out of town prompt, Natalie and Grace on the budget, Natalie and Myra at Schanke's funeral, Natalie and Sara Lambert on remembering the hypnosis, Natalie and Marion Blackwing with Marion continuing her relationship with Nick would be delicious, Janette and Fleur on Janette's actual social status is ripe with potential, Janette and Francesca before Nick is fantastic, Janette and Anna would be interesting, Janette and Alyce with Alyce as a rogue vampire is inspired, Janette and Serena after "Human Factor" is fascinating, and then of course Tracy and Cohen, Fleur and Dowager Duchess deBrabant, Jenny and Myra Schanke, Natalie and Brennan, Janette and Amanda, Natalie and Beth, Janette and Vicki, and anything Blood Ties are fantastic as well.

After the oldschoolfic deadline I'll have to give several of these some serious thought. I actually prefer these type of ficathons because there's no pressure to claim a prompt and therefore remove it from consideration for someone else. I hate the idea of disappointing someone by being unable to fulfill my fic obligation. For every one of these ficathons that I've participated in I've got about two uncompleted fics waiting very patiently for some attention.

>"You and wiliqueen really outdid yourselves."

Thank you very much! Your kind enthusiasm is very reassuring.

>"Natalie and Marion Blackwing with Marion continuing her relationship with Nick would be delicious"

I'm glad you like that one. Marian Blackwing is one of my favorite guest characters, and I wish I could do her justice, but I'd start researching the Mississauga and Native issues in Canada, and never get back to writing the story. I put Marian into a special category of female guest characters made perfectly for Nick -- just exquisitely designed to be his perfect partners -- who don't make it out of their episodes intact. Marian, painter, lives in two worlds like Nick. Emily, author, knows the burden of crushing guilt like Nick. Erica, playwright and actor, sees the costs of vampirism like Nick. One for each season.

>"I hate the idea of disappointing someone by being unable to fulfill my fic obligation."

This element seems to be making the galpalficathon very popular -- or, at any rate, highly spoken of.

How is your oldschoolfic story coming? I finally, finally finished my first draft of mine Saturday night, and am shocked at how far behind I've let myself fall on everything else. :-) Here's hoping it all comes out well in the end. Good luck!
