And while we're speaking of things one step aside from my usual scan, everyone already knows about the FK Wiki, right? I believe that has been mainly susanmgarrett and greerwatson's project so far. [Addendum 02/16: Susan observes that the project is actually Greer's, and she "deserves every molecule of credit for that work." My mistake! Well-deserved applause toward Greer, please.]
Okay! Recently on my LJ Friends List and DW Reading Page:
- fkficfest: The FK-only ficathon community is open (welcome post), and the sign-up post will go up on Thursday 02/18 (three months before the final due date, 05/18). (Several people very kindly gave us a shout-out: my co-mod Amilyn, Havocthecat and Wiliqueen.)
- femslash_today: On 02/10, I learned that "Femslash Today" is having its annual multifandom porn battle. Entries are welcome through 02/19. There are three intriguing FK prompts (no FK entries as of 02/14, as far as I can see).
- 17daysinfeb: On 01/28, celli noted a multifandom ficathon about the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. FK's characters could easily be in Vancouver during the Olympics! (As of 02/14, there are no tags, and seem to be no FK entries.)
- halfamoon: To see FK-tagged entries on "Halfamoon," go here. There don't seem to be any yet for 2010, but the event doesn't close for many hours yet. (On 01/26, abby82 remembered her FK contribution last year, and encouraged us to all play this year. On 01/21, havocthecat let us know that the community was gearing up for its annual 02/01-02/14 multifandom celebration of female characters. FK's characters are eligible.)
- Porn Battle IX: The final total was three FK entries, all by gnosticdiva. (On 01/27, gnosticdiva catalogued her contributions to Porn Battle IX. On 01/26, abby82 noted that the event was open and running through 02/01. On 01/19, abby82 announced that prompts were being accepted that week (prompts, FAQ).)
- Gen in January: The final total is one FK entry, by merfilly.
- On 01/30, I posted "In a Family Way" (PG-13, Gen, Nick and Lacroix and Others).
