Subject:      The outtakes again

Some people are probably sick of hearing about the outtake clips by now,
but there are still some questions lurking out there.  A few quick answer:

Where are they?


This will take you to an index of all the files in Sony's main FK
directory.  Note:  if you are looking at the video files in the "assets"
subdirectory, *you're in the wrong place* and will get some promo videos
rather than the outtakes.

The file names are:

1. forever.avi    - or -   forever.mov
   Summary:  Nigel (as Lacroix) snacks on a guy and then for some reason
             everyone breaks up laughing and Nigel hugs the guy.  You get
             to hear what Nigel's growling sounds like *before* they add
             the sound effects.

2. forever2.avi   - or -   forever2.mov
   Summary:  GWD screws up a line despite several attempts to get it right.

3. forever3.avi   - or -   forever3.mov
   Summary:  Lisa Ryder utterly fails to keep a straight face as Blu Mankuma
             delivers a line.  Includes giggling and prancing.  Priceless!

Yes, they take a long time to download.  Yes, they take up a lot of space
on your hard drive.  But this may be as close as we will ever get to
seeing a 3rd season blooper reel.  So enjoy!

Tape Tree-
    How could I get a hold of the first season episode Last Act? I accidently
taped over it.

I'm back everyone. You probably didn't know I was gone. Oh well. But I still
missed the lost a lot. I saw Jane Doe and Francesca. Wow! I didn't know how
much I had missed new epsiodes until now. I'm still looking for some kind
person who I could get the second season of FK from. I haven't seen it yet
and I also wanted to show the episodes to my children(people I brought
across).  Bye! Oh NO!! Am I starting to sound like a Perculator?! Quick
someone get me the second season fast before I die my hair blonde!

From what I've seen on the lists, I have a feeling that it was just WKBW.
The tech last night must have mixed up the reels (or whatever it is they use
in TV stations these days), and then fallen asleep at the switch without
noticing that he/she messed up.

I'm hoping for a nice apology from the program director, but I'm not going
to hold my breath.

Between all of us on the list we should be able to

Poor Sony, I guess they really thought it was something.

Nigel Bennett plays the number 1 henchman for Jeff Fahey's bad guy in

YKYBWTMFK and reading too much fanfic and then babbling on about it to your
poor suffering family when...

Your husband, who does *not* watch FK and does *not* read the fanfic has a
dream, not about FK, but Tippi's story "Eternal Champion",

And when you hear your four year old, who tends to sing quietly to herself
while playing, singing Garth Brook's "Achy, Breaky Heart" and wonder, "How
the heck does she know that song?  We don't listen to country", then on
listening carefully you realize she's singing, "Oh, don't stake my heart, my
achy, breaky heart".

We need to set up a support group for our families.

FK Fan Fiction fans:

I did this sort of on a whim.  I had alot of the recent fan fictions
already in my mail folders, so I decided to start throwing up some
WWW pages to help me view them easier.

Since I've seen a number of laments about DarkAngel's fan fiction
archives on the Web shutting down and with the ftp site undergoing
repairs, you are more than welcome to check out what I've got
started and let me know what you think.

The URL is:

Disclaimers:  I only have some stories starting about mid-April.
Please read my notes on the pages.  I am missing some of the
longer stories (missing chapters), so please let me know what
I'm missing, what you'd like to see, suggestions, corrections, etc.
Check out the Hot off the List link, the Author List won't work,
as it relies on the ftp site.

The Fan Fiction was one of the major factors drawing me to FK &
the FK lists, perhaps we can attract a few more if we get the
Web pages back.  Don't know if it'll be me maintaining it
(not enough disk space), but I'll be willing to keep this up
as best as I can, at least with recent stories.

Comments requested!!!  Thanks!

Subject:      TV Guide

In the TV Guide for the week of May 4, they have a tear out survey. In one
of the questions they ask: "Which otherwordly life-form do you find most
          "Vampires (Kindred: The Embraced"
          "Angels (Touched by an Angel)"
          "Aliens (3rd Rock from the Sun)

I checked off the Vampire selection, but I crossed out Kindred and wrote in
Forever Knight. If you can get a copy, I urge you to do the same.

Also, and I do not mean this as a flame of Kindred, it just happens that
this does relate. In the Couch Critic section, Jeff Jarvis pans Kindred, but
it is the questions that he raises and remarks that he made that warrant
replies. Admittedly, he says that he "never grasped the entertainment value
of vampires."  He goes on to say, "But, I could be wrong,for there's
certainly no shortage of retellings of the vampire myth" Maybe we could
change his mind?
Later in the article he says that there are "three reasons to make a vampire
show: It can be funny..(snip) It can be sexy..(snip) Or it can have
something to say..(snip)

FK did/does all of those things! Possibly we can help Mr Jarvis to see the
light, or shall I say the dark in this case. The more attention that is
brought to the airring of FK on the SFC, the better off we are.

well Here's part 4.  I don't have the other one.
Author's notes: Ok well, the inspiration for this story (or the
blame for giving me the idea :>) can go to Perri Smith for her
excellent (IMHO) stories "What's Past is Prologue and House of
the Rising Sun" which go me thinking _Why_ would a Vampire and an
Immortal stay together? Especially when each tends to drift apart
from their own kind easily enough.   Also to the writers of the
Niamh series,  The Forever Not story Revelations (The original
inspiration for  part of this story.).

James Parriot and I guess now The SciFi Channel.  Highlander and
everything that goes with it belong to Rysher and USA Network.
Felcia Maddox, Spiderman belong to Marvel (No they are not really

A Highlander/Forever Knight Crossover story
Chapter 4

Metro Station Later that evening

     Nick had just gotten back from the local college.  The
professor of history there had been only slightly less helpful
than Takata.  He confirmed that the blade was most probably made
in the late 10th or early 11th century A.D. and was made in
singularly unique manner.  But had been unable to tell where it
was made.
     After leaving the blade in the evidence room.  Nick returned
to his desk where a excited Tracy Vetter had just gotten off the
     "C'mon, Nick, we have to get moving.  There's been another
body found."
     Nodding, Nick simply turned around and followed Tracy to his
     "Where were you anyway?"  Tracy asked curiously
     "Trying to track down where this sword may have come from."
     "Any luck?"
     "Aside from the probable date that the sword was made and a
general height profile of the original owner, not much."
     Tracy heard Nick's discouraged tone and said "That's more
than we had before."
     Nick managed a short laughing remark "That's what I told my

Abandoned Factory.

     Nick and Tracy entered the dark factory.  They headed
towards the body on the walkway.  One of the uniformed officers
saw them and waved them over.
     "We found her purse on the floor near the stairs. Her ID
says that she is a French National by the name of Felecia Maddox"
     "Felicia Maddox?" Nick puzzled, "Why does that name sound
     Tracy snickered "Ever read the comic, Spiderman...Nick?"
     "Maybe, why?"
     "Because Felicia Maddox is the name of a recurring character
in the comic.  She also goes by the Alias the _Black Cat_"
     "Great" the sarcasm in Nick's voice was nearly visible "Now
we have a dead _superhero_ to contend with."
     Tracy smiled "Five'll get you Ten it's a alias"
     "No bets..."
     The officer who had been standing by throughout the
conversation said. "We also found a sword on the ground below the
     "Maybe this one is the murder weapon." Tracy muttered.
     Nick walked over to the sword "Not likely Trace"
     "Oh..." Tracy followed him over "Why no...."
     Her voice trailed off as she saw the hand still clutching
the bloody blade.
     Then she startled Nick by smiling.
     "What??" Nick asked.
     "We might have more to go on than a general physical
description now."
     Nick could hear her voice fill with triumph. He followed her
eyes and saw what she had seen.  The hilt of the blade was clear
of blood, indicating that the severed wrist had not poured blood
down the blade.  But the blade itself was streaked with blood.
Enough to indicate that whoever had been cut was hurt badly.
     Nick turned to one of the uniformed officers.  "I want every
hospital in town to notify us if someone comes in with any
suspicious lacerations."
     The officer nodded and went to call it in on his car radio.
     "You do realize, Nick? That the killer might not go to a
     "I know Trace, but this streak is long and covers the whole
blade.  If he doesn't get to a hospital, chances are he isn't
going to make it."
     Tracy nodded, together the two of them began the long
process gathering and recording what evidence they had.

Coroner's Office

     Natalie Lambert finished her preliminary autopsy and turned
to a waiting Nick.
     "Well?" Nick asked impatiently.
     Natalie shrugged "Death was due to decapitation, probably by
the same weapon used in the previous murder, or something very
similar anyway."
     Nick rolled his eyes upwards. "I _already_ knew that..."
     "Ok, Ok" Natalie said with a smile "Just teasing a little"
     "The sword you brought in, of course, wasn't the murder
weapon.  The victim had type A blood and the blood on the weapon
was O-"
     "So the blood belongs to the killer."
     Natalie shrugged "It's a possibility,  I'm going to have a
sample of the blood run thru a DNA test for more information.
With any luck we might get a break."
     Nick began to walk out.  Just before he left the room, he
turned around. "Thanks Nat."
     Natalie sighed "You really want to thank me. Do me one
     "Sure, whatever you ask."
     "Find this guy before he does this again."
     Nick nodded and continued out the door.

Nick's desk. Metro station.

     Nick could hear Capt. Reese bellowing thru the glass walls
of the Captain's office.  With the volume that Reese was using he
certainly didn't need his vampire senses to know the Captain was
mad at something. <I just hope it isn't me.>
     "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU LOST THE SWORD!!!!!" Reese's bellow
hit a new high.
     At those words Nick almost flew, literally, into the
Captain's office.  He got there just in time to hear the Captain
chewing out the person on the other end.
     "I don't care what your people say, A three foot long razor
sharp piece of steel doesn't just vanish into thin air... your
people had better find it or heads will roll."
     Nick watched Captain Reese wince when he realized what he
had said.
     "Night, you're not going to believe this."
     "Lemme guess, somehow the longsword I put into the evidence
room has turned up missing."
     "You heard that huh?" Reese looked a little chagrined.
     "Captain, I think the people in Calgary heard that part."
     Reese again began to build up steam.  "The _Only_ material
piece of evidence we have in this case and of course it just has
to vanish."  He put his head into his hands.
     "Actually, Captain..." Nick handed over the final paperwork
on the latest killing "Not the only evidence"
     The Captain went over the report and smiled "That makes me
feel a little better. "Then he got the point where Nick had put
down his theory on why the murders had been commited. "A
_swordfight_?  Nick, I refuse to believe that two grown people
fought to the death using swords.  This is Toronto, Not Camelot."
     "It fits the facts, Captain.  In each case the victim was
found decapitated.  Found next to them was a sword, forensics
confirms that the sword's were not the murder weapons.  In one
case the victim's hand was still around the sword.  From the
damage to the walkway around the victim, we determined that at
least one person up there was swinging a sword and missed.  What
else can we think?"
     Reese almost growled "I don't know may this is one really
wacko serial killer and I want him off our streets. Do you think
you can manage that!?"
     Nick nodded "We're a lot closer than we were 3 night's ago.
I just wish someone hadn't needed to die to furnish us with this
     Reese sighed "I know,  It still bothers me, the kind of
things some people can do to another."
     Nick nodded again and left the office.

A roomy home somewhere in Toronto. Early morning

     Aaron woke up after an exhausted sleep.  Then turned to make
sure the drapes were still closed tight and then rolled out of
     As he stretched, he looked around the room.  Theresa was not
in bed.  The last thing he remembered was Terry actually tucking
him into bed.  Just before he dropped of to sleep he vaguely
recalled that she had said she was going out for a while. Quickly
he went out into the den.  He knew that she was probably just
working on her latest book.  But he couldn't help worrying about
     <She's a big girl, Aaron, She can take care of herself.> The
logical part of his mind told him.  <But what if she was hurt and
couldn't make it back.> The slightly frightened emotional side
     The breath he had been holding came out in a rush of relief
as he saw her sitting in the darkened den, typing away at the
computer she used to finalize her novels.
     Then he noticed the sword sitting in the corner, _his_
sword.  "How did you... Never mind I don't want to know."
     He smiled, walked over and put his arms around her. Gently
kissing the base of her neck, he murmured in his best suggestive
voice "Do you really have to work on that book right now? Or do
you have time for something slightly less important but just as
     He could feel her smile as he continued to nuzzle her neck.
     "You mean, definitely more important, _way_ more satisfying
don't you." She purred.
     "Either way." he said as he picked her out of the chair and
carried her back to the bedroom.
     15 minutes later the power saver on the computer shut the
monitor off.

End of chapter 4

If anyone want's a more explicit scene... Make your own, you have
my permission.  I am one of those who believes that the
imagination is the most power sex toy mankind has ever developed.

You know what?  This story is a lot longer than I first
envisioned.  I figured 5 chapters tops but it looks like I might
be going into overtime... Oh well, I hope you're still reading at
the end.  I've got my fireproof suit ready for flames that will
probably follow that ;>

Nah.  It's *fun* to be whacko! :)

Subject:      NATPE costs

Hi - just balanced my checkbook and saw that the two checks I sent to
help defray NATPE bags, etc. were never cashed.  Were they ever received?
Sorry to send this to the list at large, but my office looks like a giant
wind fan sprayed papers all over the place and I can't find anything...

I'll be sending the TV guide survey in - and making copies for my friends who
watch FK to do the same.  If each one of us on the list can do this with all
their FK fan friends, that will make many THOUSANDS of responses that TV Guide
would receive.

I haven't had any problems with the Sony files.  Usually
scene-skipping and audio dropouts mean that:  1. You have a slow
computer, 2. You have a slow hard drive, 3. You don't have much
memory, 4. Some combination of the three.  I've been running them on
a Pentium 75 w/16MB RAM and they're pretty clean.  However, they do
skip on my 486-33.

1) Have you thanked your local affiliate lately for showing FK?  No?  Why
not drop them a letter or postcard.  This people will only take us seriously
now and in future if we prove to them we're not a flash in the pan.  And
although our future seems firmly linked with SciFi, one never knows when
having friends in places will work out to one's benefit (trust me on this!).

Also, writing letters and getting friends to write letters will enter you in
AnneMarie's contest.  Contact her for details.

And write to SciFi.  If we ever want a movie it will be a USA/SciFi backed
collaboration (unless the sun starts turning in the other direction and Sony
gets a clew . . . which could happen).

2) Affiliation pins are always available from me for free (well, actually,
you have to send me a small, padded, postage paid--two stamps--envelope).
Check out the pin page (it's off my home page, URL in the sig) for what pins
you need.  And if you want a full set, please send a donation to Pediatric
Aids or your favorite charity on behalf of FK.  Let's do good with this and
show the world that we're not mindless, psychotic couch potatoes.

Okay . . . so we're not <mindless> couch potatoes.

3) I've had to postpone work on the FK War web page due to heavy real-life
interference, but will work on it this summer.  Okay?  Promise.

4) I am going to be at Syndicon.  I won't be staying at the hotel but will
be running in and out.  I will NOT have a dealer's table (not only are they
sold out, but it's a Highlander con and who's gonna want my piddy FK stuff,
right?).  Toronto was zine weirdness.  So if you want me to bring zines (and
yes we've reprinted the larger ones), let me know in advance what you want
and I'll put them in a baggie with your name on them so other people don't
con me into selling them to them (and y'all know who you are *grin*).

I will try to bring affiliation pins to Syndicon but don't know if I'll be
able to buy and cut the foam core board by then.  The glue exploded on my
way OUT of Toronto this past trip.  In my suitcase.  Thankfully, it was in a
plastic bag, but my vachons got squished.

Which is another story entirely.

5) I want to thank DarkAngel for having the guts to have kept the fiction
web page going as long as it did.  I'm sorry to see it go.  There's at leat
one group of FK potential-purchasers who did some serious downloading and
reading from that page to determine whether what they wanted from FK was
what the audience wanted and how it would affect the package they put together.

However, the FTP site (and its care and maintenance by our resident fiction
goddesses) has been long overlooked.  Thank you for providing a place for
the fic all this time and for keeping it up and running.  I'm anxious to see
what the new site will look like.

6) Our web-goddess and Nat-Packer, Jamie, has been nominated for a Fan Q for
a Ghostbusters story.  And fellow Nat-Packer Mary GT (the mad Aussie) Webber
has been nominated for a Kung Fu novella.  Anyone else out there make the

Which, by the way, MediaWest has announced will be corrected and sent out in
the second con progress report--right now the ballots must be received by
May 22nd--I'll notify you of any changes.  Contact me if you'd like me to
send you a ballot and rules for voting.  You CAN vote even if you're not a
member of the convention.

ObFK--what do you think has been the best of each character's outfits for
the 3 seasons of current or flashbacks?

My vote--Nick's black doublet in "Partners of the Month," LaCroix's tux in
"Love You To Death," Janette's dress in the flashback of "The Fix" and Nat .
. . there was a first season suit that I liked a lot.  Notice how this year
everyone seems to be wearing K-Mart specials?  Is that something else we
lost in 3rd season--style and fashion sense?

But, of course, Janette's been gone . . . .
