[community profile] fkficfest has generated 10 new FK stories.

I received Feint of Heart by [personal profile] waltd, a missing scene that sheds some light on Killer Instinct.

My contribution this year was One Loss Too Many, a Dark NN story with possible sequels.

Fandom Stocking 2016/2017 had only 3 people requesting FOREVER KNIGHT, including me. While it's sad to see the fandom shrinking, I managed to fulfill all FK requests this year. Although it took me until this week to do so. Hence the belated overview. I wrote:

Summary: Nick and Reese go on a road trip to a remote town in Ontario.

Social Life for [personal profile] wendymypooh
PG-13, ~3500 words, Characters: Nick/Natalie, Schanke, Janette, Lacroix, Sydney
Summary: Natalie needs a place to stay. When Nick offers reluctantly, she gets a few unexpected glimpses into his social life.

The 2017 edition of FKFicFest will be conducted earlier this year. Sign-ups are open through March 24.

Out of FKFicFest 2016 I was gifted with two wonderful UF stories by [personal profile] nicholas_lucien: Within the timeframe of the game I received A Shared Passion and as additional surprise I received Hidden Desire addressing the same prompt in a different way.

The prompts I received were so inspiring that I also wrote 2 stories. Within the timeframe of the game I wrote Broken Ties and later Truth or Dare.

Big kudos to moderator [personal profile] brightknightie for providing such perfect matches.

Sadly, FK alumni Richard McMillan passed away last Sunday after a battle with cancer. He played Brother Matthew in the flashback of first season's Dying to Know You and Lindley in second season's Can't Run, Can't Hide.

A detailed orbituary can be found here.

Stage:

Nigel Bennett is currently on stage in The Audience at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto. The play about the Queen and her prime ministers runs through Feb 26. Nigel plays PM Harold Wilson.

Screen:

Nigel can currently be seen in 3D in the movie xXx3 - The Return of Xander Cage.
I've seen it last night, in 3D, but only in German. It's a brief appearance, but it's nice to see him on the big screen.

Sign-ups for [community profile] fandom_stocking are open through December, 14! I've decided to join again, although I'm aware that I'll probably end up with distributing story promises again which I won't be able to fulfill due to lack of time. Yet, it's fun to receive all the holiday greetings and fannish stuff. And maybe there are prompts which strike instant inspiration so that I might come up with a story after all.

The sign-up post is here.

I've also updated my Dear Author Letter by adding Lucifer, for which I've recently discovered a passion.

I saw my first 3D movie this week. So far, I've avoided 3D because I wasn't sure if it would work with my eyes and if my stomach would agree with it.

However, Doctor Strange didn't leave me a choice. The 2D version was available only in the German dubbed version, and I definitely wanted to see it in English because of Benedict Cumberbatch's wonderful voice. So I went last night, put my contact lenses in and got one of these glasses.

I loved the movie. The 3D technique is fascinating, but also distracting. It took some time getting used to. Some things just looked computer-generated which of course they were, but in 2D it's not that obvious. And sometimes I was close to getting sick.

Overall, I still prefer 2D. However, there are a couple of upcoming movies that I wish to see, so I might watch the 3D version again if no 2D is available.

Upcoming movies I want to see are:
Fantastic Beasts
Rogue One
xXx (Nigel Bennett has a part in this one. Might be thrilling to see him in 3D :))

Nigel has a brief appearance in The Strain (season 2, episode 2). He plays an antique dealer in a flashback to 1965 Vienna and speaks with a perfect German accent which made me smile and wonder if that is what my English sounds like. :)
