During this year's [community profile] fkficfest I wrote a NN story called One Loss Too Many.

That storyline is now continued in the sequel One Death Too Many.

There will be a concluding third part. So stay tuned...

[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.

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.

FKFicFest has revealed its stories on AO3. We have 9 magnificent new Forever Knight stories this year.

I received Never What It Seems by [personal profile] lastscorpion (~2000 words, g) featuring Nick, Tracy, Vachon and Detective William Murdoch from Murdoch Mysteries in a flashback. In fact, [personal profile] lastscorpion worked two of my prompts into one story.

Promt 1: Nick & Tracy - Nick and Tracy are sent on an extended stake-out mission. Will Nick be able to hide his nature from a very observant Tracy?

Prompt 2: Nick & Detective William Murdoch (Crossover request) - When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

I wrote How to Disappear Completely (~14400 words, PG13) for [personal profile] twilight2000.

Her prompt was: Nick/Nat - What if something went terribly wrong and Nick had to start over again in, say, New Orleans – and Nat went with?

Please visit the collection and leave comments so that the authors may feel inspired to write more FK.

The Raven, or rather the club that served as the filming site for our favourite Toronto nightclub on Richmond/Duncan has reopened as a sportsbar. The entire building has ondergone major renovations during the last year. It now houses several venues under the name The Fifth. The Fifth Pubhouse is located on the ground floor/basement that is accessible through the Raven's former front door. The alley entrance leads to a smaller bar called Cabin Five.

I haven't been there yet, just passed by in a taxi at night, and was happy to see crowds of people going in and out.

The change would certainly make for an interesting fanfic, don't you think? In this context, it comes in handy that [community profile] fkficfest has opened its sign-up period for this year's game. Sign-ups close on June 7. So drop by and leave your prompts.

[personal profile] brightknightie posted this year's schedule for [community profile] fkficfest. Sign-ups are open from May 21 through June 7. Don't miss this. FKFicFest is the only FOREVER KNIGHT only fiction game and therefore a valuable contribution to increase the pile of Forever Knight fanfiction on the web.

I've noticed an alarming decrease in my own works during the last couple of years. While I wrote the "Evidence" series, the ideas kept flowing in my head. Before writing the last sentences of one story I already had another idea for the next story in my head. This has diminished somewhat. During a recent meeting with other FK fans we've discussed this issue and tried to figure out why that is. I'm glad to report that it's not due to a lack of interest in the show. Instead I think the frequency of watching FK may be a factor. About 10 years ago I've been watching my DVDs far more frequently than nowadays. And this was probably the source of inspiration.

During our recent weekend meeting we watched 6 episodes with the result that inspiration struck and I got a new story idea. :) Now I only need to find the time to write it down.

That is why I value FKFicfest so highly. It guarantees that I get to finish at least one major story per year. Because there is no other choice than to make writing a priority during the two months assigned to the fest.

2013 started with a bunch of mostly shorter stories I wrote for [community profile] fandom_stocking 2012/2013:

Moving On
for [personal profile] brightknightie
2413 words, G
After the events of "Only the Lonely", Natalie returns from her vacation in the desert.

End of the World
for [personal profile] enviropony
1180 words, PG-13
The Nightcrawler contemplates the '2012 phenomenon'.

Lethal Favours
for [personal profile] skieswideopen
5260 words, PG-13
When a murder victim is linked to the Raven, the secret of the Community is at stake.

For FKCommentfic 2012 I wrote:

for [personal profile] foxy11814
1100 words, PG-13
Lacroix discovers that a master vampire has taken a very keen interest in Nick. He isn't having it.

Mutual Concerns
for [personal profile] amilyn
300 words, G
A time Nat and Lacroix spoke that Nick never Knew about.

My contribution to [community profile] fkficfest 2013 was:

Knight on Duty
for [profile] vorpalblades
7700 words, PG-13
Traveling changed dramatically over 800 years.

So all 6 works completed in 2013 were answers to requests. I did, however, get a good portion written on my work in progress, which I hope to complete in 2014. I've been writing this gen story featuring Natalie and Lacroix for a couple of years now and it just needs the showdown and some sorting out.

Another WIP is a hommage of my hometown which celebrates it's 800th anniversary this year. It will feature Nick, Lacroix and Janette in a flashback.

And a more recent and pressing WIP is a contribution to [community profile] fandom_stocking 2013/2014, which I owe [personal profile] skieswideopen. This story will feature Nick and Janette.

The stories for this year's FKFicFest are released on AO3. I received a wonderful Nick/Lacroix story, written from Lacroix's prospective: Never Saw this World Before.

My own story Knight on Duty" released today.

Make sure you read all stories in the collection. They're all wonderful, ranging from 13th century to 50 years post-Last Knight.

This week was the first opening week at the Stratford Festival. A compilation of the reviews for all plays is provided by the Festival here. GWD received a lot of praise for his roles as Duke Vincentio in Shakespeare's Measure for Measure and as the Earl of Leicester in Schiller's Mary Stuart.

In particular I liked this phrase from the Toronto Star: Geraint Wyn Davies has the ability to charm one moment, then go for the throat in the next and that quality is on splendid display here. Couldn't help but finding this very inspiring for the story I'm currently writing for [community profile] fkficfest. :) A precise description of how I like Nick best. :)

Production photos of Measure for Measure and Mary Stuart are offered here (Nigel is seen in one, too) and here, respectively.

A video of Mary Stuart with GWD in it (although he doesn't say anything in this scene) is available here.

The third FK-related play The Thrill featuring Nigel Bennett opens in August.

[livejournal.com profile] fkficfest / [community profile] fkficfest sign-ups are open through May 17. This is the FOREVER KNIGHT-only Ficathon. Anyone who enjoys writing FK should participate. Prompts will be sent out on May 20 and stories are due on July 27. For further details visit the community on LJ or DW.

I have decided on my prompts so far, although I'm still a little uncertain about one of them. The problem is that the moment I thought about this particular prompt, a story idea came to mind. Now, should I keep the prompt to myself and write the story or should I use it in the game? Of course, I can still write the story and use the prompt in the game. It might be interesting to have the same prompt tackled by two authors. But there's always the danger that the story I have in mind is too close to the one I will receive. On the other hand, among the 3 prompts, this one is probably the least likely to get picked. But who knows...

There's still some time until sign-ups close, so I will contemplate on this a little further. If I can't think of another prompt, I will use this one.

In preparation to the game, and because I felt like it, I started to re-watch all episodes again. I'm currently in season 2, and with this season, I try out the order in which they aired during the CBS premiere instead of the production order on the DVD. I've been told it would provide a different perspective on the relationship between the characters. While I found this to be true for the relationship between Nick and Natalie and Nick and Janette, I'm not so sure how Lacroix fits into all this. I find the production order makes more sense where Lacroix is concerned. For example, I've always assumed that Capital Offense features the first Nightcrawler broadcast after Lacroix's return, however, the "aired" order would make Father's Day the first episode in which the Nightcrawler appears. Also, the "aired" order places Bad Blood later in the season while this episode is No. 4 on the DVDs. The latter makes more sense to me because of Nick's statement when he discovers Lacroix at the Raven ("a new place to hide"). He shouldn't be so surprised when he has already sought him out at CERK during Father's Day which comes earlier in the "aired" order.

Anyway, it is interesting to watch them in this order for a change.
