FK Recommendation March 2010  
What's Good?  For March, I'm delighted to get to point out Cindy I.'s "Mortal Ties" (2000, PG).  This pre-"Dark Knight" novella lays a baseline homicide case plot, and then overlaps motifs in a family tragedy for Natalie and a flashback struggle for Nick.
     With a faint sigh, Nick silenced the nagging doubts.  Now was not the time to worry about his own moral dilemmas.  Tonight, Natalie's pain took precedence.  Despite his resolve not to get involved, he'd found he couldn't stand by while she faced this night alone.

What's New on FKFic-L?  In February, the fiction list saw one new story, "The Macedonian Vampire in New Mexico" (8 posts, 344KB) by dj_clawson.  It isn't online just yet, but I'm guessing it will join its series soon.

Oh! Don't forget!  fkficfest sign-ups are open through March 18.

Oh, wonderful! Thank you. I will email Cindy to pass on your comment on her story. I was so happy to find a current address for her, and get to ask after this tale.

You have also written a pre-DK story of this genre, I know. There's so much story telling room between the flashbacks of "Only the Lonely" and the present of "Dark Knight."

I find that Pre-Dark Knight stories are far too rare. I so enjoy reading about those first weeks of the developping relationship between Nick and Nat.
