Ficathons Update  
The Fall 2009 oldschoolfic fest (the one for canceled series) released this weekend, with a total of eight stories in six fandoms.  One of them, "The Fall Rolled in on the Back of Summer" by abby82, is FK!  Written for a prompt by me!  (My entry, "What Remains has Always Been," was written for a BtVS request.)

The inaugural gen_ficathon fest (the one for other-than-romance) is still waiting for the final entries to be submitted.  They've released twenty-two (about half of their total) in fifteen fandoms so far.  One of them, "The Code of Friendship" by foxy11814, is FK!  (My entry, "From Now On," as previously mentioned, was written for a BtVS request.)

With my co-moderator, I am planning to soon begin setting up that little FK-only event, with stories to be due May 18 (the LK anniversary).  I'm figuring we'll want about two months to write, so assignments would be distributed no later than March 23 (hopefully sooner), sign-ups due by March 18, sign-ups open on February 18.  Sound about right?

Computer = still not fixed. Email = still not answered. Promise to remedy soon.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you when you have the time and the equipment. :-)

There will be at least one more FK fic coming via a ficathon. My gen_ficathon is FK.

And, if thing go according to plan there will be two FK stories for scifibigbang in early December. :-)

Lucky us, to have another FK story to look forward to! And lucky you, with your enviable two FK prompts in a row! ~envies~ ;-)

By the way, would you like a beta-read of your Oldschoolfic story before you post it to fkfic-l? Just a thought, no biggie... ~shrug~

LOL, I think I'm such a hard participant to pair b/c my fandoms are rarely requested so I tend to get FK.

I would appreciate it very much, yes. I posted a request on forkni-l before I posted to the comm but I didn't get any hits. I usually don't when it's gen.

I'll send the story along this weekend. :-)

>"I think I'm such a hard participant to pair b/c my fandoms are rarely requested so I tend to get FK."

I wonder whether I should offer only my more obscure fandoms, making FK and HL look so eminently mainstream that people will assign me in them. :-) No, I'm a Knightie. We don't do sneaky things like that... not on purpose, anyway. ;-)

That's too bad, about no responses when it's gen. If it hadn't been my prompt, you could have asked me. :-) But yes, I'll be happy to offer some suggestions for your consideration (there's at least one spellcheck-resistant typo hidden in there). I'm slow -- because I work far too many hours and am trying to find the time to seek a new job that will not take such advantage of me -- but I'll be here.

LOL, I think it's the Buffy effect. It's a popular LJ fandom and the minute you throw that in...well I think it's safe to say you'll be visiting Sunnydale. Although, you do get to exercise a muscle that probably wouldn't get much work elsewhere. :-)

It's sad. I have my ship leanings too but gen makes the fandom world go round. Three cheers for genfic!

The fic should be in your inbox by now but please don't hurry on my account. I sincerely hope a less time consuming job is in your future. Job stress can manifest itself in so many horrible ways and I'd hate for you to be out of commission for a while. FK needs it's biggest cheerleader! :-)

I admit, I wondered what it would be like to write in a more popular fandom. However, my experience was that fewer people read / engaged with / commented on my BtVS stories than my FK ones. There are practical reasons for that, of course, but it left me with the feeling that I was writing in a secondary fandom for the recipient and the wider community as well as for myself, and that I just wanted to come home, where my heart and imagination are engaged even when no one reads me. :-)

>"FK needs its biggest cheerleader! "

You're very kind! :-) I think that is wiliqueen's title, though. ;-) I'm just filling in a little for the moment.
