FK Recently: What You Guys Have Been Up To (06/16/10-07/29/10)  
Recently in FK on my LJ Friends List and DW Reading Page:

  • On 07/27, someone posted under lock with reflections on the Lacroix character.
  • On 07/22, pj1228 mused on two common fanfiction concepts about the properties of FK vampire saliva that are neither supported nor voided by canon.
  • Say "I love you!" Fest.  On 07/29, [personal profile] catwalksalone declared an "It's Okay To Say 'I Love You'" multifandom game for fiction, recommendations and art (no sign-ups, yes deadlines).  All relationships (gen and romance) are welcome; the sole restriction is that the "I love you" must be sincere.  The fest closes at 1:00 PM Pacific on 08/05.
  • oldschoolfic.  This is the multi-fandom ficathon community for canceled fandoms (yes sign-ups, yes deadlines).  On 07/08, the moderator reviewed the current game's default deadline.  On 07/21, she put up a beta-reader post.  Stories are due on 07/31.
  • Friendship Commentfic.  On 06/30, [personal profile] kayim declared an "I'd Die For You, But I Won't Sleep With You" gen, multifandom, commentfic game (no sign-ups, no deadlines).
  • Porn Battle 10.  This is the multi-fandom erotica ficathon (no sign-ups, yes deadlines).  On 07/06, gnosticdiva relayed that the game would accept prompts 07/12-07/16, with play 07/19-07/26.  On 07/13, she reminded us about the game, and on 07/18, someone posted under lock that there were FK prompts available.  When the game closed, four FK stories had been entered (see below), though none for HL, strangely.
  • vampirebigbang.  This is the multi-fandom vampire ficathon for stories of 10K+ words (yes sign-ups, yes deadlines).  On 06/28, gnosticdiva confirmed that sign-ups had closed, and that she was the only FK writer playing.  On 06/16, she outlined the sci-fi AU FK story she's writing.
As you know, both Geraint Wyn Davies and Nigel Bennett have been performing at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival this summer.  foxy11814 got to go, and she has kindly shared her treat with the rest of us.  (Her posts are open now, but she's going to f-lock them eventually.)
  • On 06/28, she announced that the 2011 Stratford schedule includes Geraint Wyn Davies as Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor and as Arthur in Camelot.
  • On 07/06, she lost her mind :-) at the news that she would get to meet GWD in person and she also reviewed the Stratford production of Do Not Go Gentle starring GWD.
  • On 07/09, she reviewed The Tempest, with Christopher Plummer as Prospero and GWD as Stephano.  She also related her lucky conversation, from which she got tickets for the filming of The Tempest and (!) got invited to meet GWD before the Meet the Festival session so she could get a photo, and (!) got tickets to Evita.
  • On 07/10, she reviewed Evita and described the filming of The Tempest.
  • On 07/11, she described meeting GWD (+2 photos of Foxy11814 with GWD).
  • On 07/13, she described the "Meet the Festival" session with GWD (+9 photos of GWD).
  • On 07/24, she shared photos scanned from the official programs, plus a photo she took that has both GWD and NB in it (although the image quality is poor).

As a matter of almost idle curiosity, what happened to the round-up for the middle of June? (And do we get a BrightKnightie recommendation this month?)

>"As a matter of almost idle curiosity, what happened to the round-up for the middle of June?"

Did I miss some posts? As far as I know, there weren't any FK-related posts on my LJ Friends List or DW Reading Page between 06/10 (the latest listed on the previous "Recently" post) and 06/16 (the earliest listed on the current "Recently" post).

I do usually post this round-up much nearer the start of the month, though it's not on any specific schedule, and if I posted it more often, it wouldn't get so long. My apologies for any inconvenience.

>"And do we get a BrightKnightie recommendation this month?"

I may have to backdate at this rate (hopefully not), but yes, one way or another, there will be a new recommendation for July! And then one for August on its heels. :-) Thank you for asking.

Well, around 6-10 June, both Walt and I posted our fkficfest stories to FKFIC-L—or, at least, I posted my shorter pieces. You usually mention things that are posted to the list.

In the final post, I said that all of my short fkficfest stories were now on my website. Done pretty with graphics. You can access them at http://www.foreverknight.org/FK4/FKfanfic.htm

Attachments is simply too complicated to post on FKFIC-L. Apart from anything else it would have to suffer the death of a thousand cuts to be sliced up into small enough pieces. At this point, though, I have HTMLed the story (which even so, is going to have to be subdivided, since it's over 1MB); but I want to re-read it, and maybe revise it a little. I'll tell you when it's up.

>"You usually mention things that are posted to the list."

There are two distinct kinds of posts that I usually make monthly.
  • One is marked with the tag "recently" and begins with the introduction, "Recently on my LJ Friends List and DW Reading Page." It lists posts that have appeared on blogs that I follow. It covers the span since the last "recently" post, whatever length of time that may be.
  • The other is marked with the tag "recommendations" and introduces the recommendation of the month, recently with the label "What's good?" Frequently, this post also includes a section labeled "What's new on FKFic-L?" which lists stories that posted to the FKFic-L email list in the month before the month of the recommendation.

I regret any confusion I have caused with these posts.

Hah! I get what I've done. I've not been making a distinction between the posts with this heading and your "On Posting to FKFic-L" posts! Sorry about that.

and as Arthur in Camelot.

This is amazingly fantastically good news! Except for the part where there's no possible way I can swing Stratford this year.

There was a "what would you like to see the actors do?" discussion on FORKNI-L circa 1995, and this was at the top of my list. No lie. I would give a LOT just to hear him do the "Resolution" monologue at the close of Act I.
Amy R.: Tracybrightknightie on August 3rd, 2010 09:45 pm (UTC)
Actually, GWD's Camelot is 2011, next year. You have a whole year to figure out how to swing it. ;-)

I'm sorry for the confusion; I should have bracketed that bullet point off from the others. It came from the same person's blog, but all the other points are about 2010 plays, and only that one line is about 2011.

That's okay -- it's what I get for skimming! (And the timing couldn't be better on getting the news properly, as I've just found out the switch I need to replace inside my dryer is discontinued. *headdesk*)
