   Goblin settled into her hidy-hole on the airplane (_Large_
airplane, much bigger than a car).  Now for the hard part, fixing
dinner.  Somedays a girl just needed opposable thumbs.

   She chased the pouch around clawing at it.  Then she saw the
human, watching her.

   "Hello pretty cat, you look just like a little raven.  Are you
a stowaway?" the human asked.

   `Goblin, being well versed in the cat manual, and quite
knowledgeable about ravens, said nothing, but looked at her feline

   "Ok, ok, here you go" the human easily opened the pouch.  "Thank
You for flying USAir and enjoy your stay in Toronto">  The human
walked away chuckling.  Goblin enjoyed a quite meal.

   Janette smiled at the small black shape as it slide into her
club.  Maybe Goblin could give her some insight into what the
FOSsiLs were going.  She thought about sending the cat in as a spy
but decided against it.

   She asked her bartender for a saucer of cream and headed into
the back room.

Subject:      Jumping the Fence

The pounding beat of the music coming from the Raven, across the
street, twisted Nan's stomach into knots.  Of course, the argument
with Janette, which had ended abruptly with a scream and a slamming
door, hadn't helped Nan feel any more relaxed.

Nan had come to Toronto three days ago to meet with Janette, to
pledge her support.  But the woman was obsessed, and where before,
Janette had always seemed coquettishly eccentric, now she was
completely out of control.  Whatever her plans were, she was
keeping them close to her chest.  The Corbies were in chaos around
her, but she was too intent on her mad scheme to rein them all in.
Suddenly, it was too unsettling for Nan, too uncertain.  Maybe she
was just getting old... or maybe the Truth was finally becoming

The computer screen glowed, and she scrolled through the War
messages for the day.  The "Bad Penny", Ms. Meacham, was still
looking for an insider.  Maybe it was time to really commit to
something.  Nan had spent her whole life on the fence, always
playing both sides against the middle.  Maybe the time had come to
take a stand against the Darkness. And Natalie  been good for
Nick.  She had a forgiving heart.  Maybe... just maybe...

Nan hunched forward over the keyboard, glancing around nervously as
she typed, thinking she felt unseen eyes upon her.  But her
paranoia only confirmed her decision.  A lifetime spent on the edge
had made her suspicious of every little sound and sight.  She typed
her message to Valerie, hoping she wasn't too late, hoping there
was a place for her on the other side... And praying there really
were no prying eyes to see her defection.


   I've been lurking for a while, having pledged myself to Janette
a while ago, out of some misguided notion of safety.  But I see now
how wrong I've been.  I want to cross back into the light.  I'll be
willing to do anything you ask...  Can you help me?

   A Lost Soul,


There.  It was done.  She'd committed herself.  Whatever the
outcome, at least she knew that, finally, for once, she'd made the
right choice.

        LaCroix sat down at his system.  Best to see what those
silly mortals on the net were up to; a true warrior always gathers
what information he could.  He hit the on switch and nothing
happened.  Disgusted he picked up the phone *and John had better
fix this fast* but there was no dial tone.  He glared at the phone
as if threatening it to work, it nearly did.
        The door opened and Monica let herself in.  She threw the
lightswitch by the door and nothing happened.  "We blew a bulb" she
told LaCroix.
        "A fuse most likely.  Fix it." he told her.
        When she got to the basement, new fuse in hand she saw the
old one suffered no damage.  She changed it anyway and went back
upstairs.  The lights still did not answer to her touch.
        "Take care of this nonsense," LaCroix told her.  Perfectly
comfortable in the darkness himself he walked into the living room.

Cousin Tok hits Toronto

Evening of 7/8 (Friday)

Lisa (Cousin Tok, to some) stood below the window of the room Nan
was hiding in.  Things were slow at the Raven tonight, but you
never knew who might be watching from across the alley.

She'd known all along where Nan had gone -- she'd followed her all
the way to Toronto.  There'd been enough time to throw a few
clothes (and a special surprise for Nan) into a suitcase and
Gandalf & Merlin into their carrier.  No time to arrange for a
cat-sitter, so they had to come along.

Tok had finally found a place to stay that would accept cats. By
the time she'd gotten the kitties settled and the laptop set up, it
was dark.  She'd left the cats loose in the room while she went out
to track down Nan.  She'd had Nan pegged as a Ravenette, but after
lurking near the Raven and overhearing that argument, that might no
longer be the case.

Second floor room ... hmmm, that could be a problem.  Then, Tok
noticed the drainpipe running up the side of the building, near
Nan's window.  Carefully, she climbed up and peered in, just in
time to see the message Nan sent to Valerie.  Leaving the
Ravenettes was good, but she was going in the wrong direction!  She
needed a little reminder that Uncle and his followers were not to
be taken lightly.

As Cousin Tok prepared to climb back down, the brackets holding the
drainpipe to the building gave an ominous creak.  As Tok stared in
disbelief, the brackets separated from the structure and the pipe
fell away.  "Oh no, not again!" thought Tok, just before she landed
in the garbage dumpster.  Carefully, she peered over the rim.  No
one seemed to have noticed the crash.  "Well, this is one way to
find out what kind of trash the Raven throws out," muttered Tok, as
she picked unspeakables out of her hair.  Luckily, she'd left her
"present" for Nan in the car.

Gingerly, she made her way back to her car to retrieve the package.
Even in darkness, she was able to find Nan's car.  Sure enough,
there were several tapes scattered in the front.  Rick Springfield,
of course.  All that was left to do was to swap the labels from
those to the 'Saturday Night Fever' soundtracks and Bee Gees albums
she'd picked up cheap.  That, and the special modification to the
inside light.  The next time Nan popped in one of those tapes,
she'd think she was in a disco.  (Never confess a violent reaction
to disco in the presence of a Cousin!)

A little later, Cousin Tok slipped away from the car.  Now she
needed to go find Uncle and report in.  Time to hook up with the
other Cousins.

July 7, 1994, late evening

     "Well, we're here!" said Bruce, stepping off the last airplane
step.  "Toronto."
     I stepped onto the ground beside him.  "Yeah."  And no one was
gladder than me to have two feet back on solid ground again, even
_if_ my gate was a bit unsteady from the drinks I'd had on the
     After we had collected our baggage, we looked around at the
crowded terminal and then looked uncertainly at each other.  "Well,
what now?" I asked.
     "I guess the first step should be to get a hotel room until we
decide what our next step should be.  But first you should call
your Mom and tell her we got here safely."
     "Okay."  I walked over to a nearby pay phone and made the call
to my Mom.  I told her I'd call her back as soon as we had settled
into a hotel and told her to give Amanda our love and that we'd
talk to her tomorrow.
     After some searching and our cab driver's recommendation, we
found ourselves installed in a modest hotel in the downtown
district.  "Guess I should give Mom another call and tell her where
we are."  I picked up the phone in our room, but Bruce said,
     "Maybe you should use the pay phone in the lobby."
     "The hotel keeps records of calls."
     "But no one knows we're here."
     "That may change later."
     "You'd think you were a Cousin!"
     "No, just a GM," he said.
     "Okay.  I guess it won't hurt to use some caution.  I won't be
gone long."
     I went down to the lobby, made my call, and returned.  "Well,
at least Mom knows where she can get in contact with us if
necessary."  Bruce had almost finished his unpacking and I started
to do the same.  The plane trip, the drinks, and the whole weird
situation--not to mention the growing lateness of the hour--was all
beginning to catch up with me and make me very tired.  But I
wondered if we should try to make contact with anyone.  "Are we
going to go to the Die-Hard Headquarters tonight?"
     "I don't know if I feel up to handling any vampires tonight."
     "But we should make contact with someone."
     "Well, we couldn't bring the computer so we'll have to go in
person to the Die-Hard Headquarters tomorrow, I guess.  We don't
have a phone number."
     "I wonder if it's listed."  I sat on the bed and opened the
phone book.
     "I wouldn't worry about it tonight.  We'd be no good to
anybody half dead."
     "Maybe you're right.  I just hope we're not too late."  I
started to put the phone book down again, but thought of something.
     Yep, it was there--Sidney Lambert.  But Nat was probably
working.  Curious, I looked up Nick's number.  It was also listed.
But he was probably on duty too.  That is, unless the Wars had
gotten out of hand.
     Bruce massaged my shoulders briefly and said, "C'mon, let's
get some sleep and we'll get a fresh start tomorrow."
     I sighed.  "Okay."  But, despite my fatigue, I had a feeling
it was going to be a long night.

Sharon Himmanen

Night of July 7
Early morning of July 8

Caution was obviously the best way to proceed, although she was
fairly certain Betsy was just an over-excited newbie who had no
real idea what she was getting into.  A cousin wanting to
infiltrate our ranks would be far more convincing, she thought.

Still, it wouldn't hurt to take the time to get to know her a
little bit.  But how, without making it look too obvious that she
was feeling Betsy out?  After all, she didn't want to insult her.

They'd gone into the house to chat for a bit and for Sharon to send
email to the group--she'd been cautious about reporting on Betsy.
Better wait for that until she was sure.

As she was quitting from her White Knight application a sudden idea
occurred to her.  Betsy was a virtually unknown entity--what Sharon
needed was an application.  While filling that out, Sharon could
ask a few relevant questions, just to satisfy herself that all was

Betsy was sitting across from her in the living room practically
bouncing up and down with excitement.  In fact, she could hardly
sit still.  And Ace, having finished her meal, was making such a
din to wake the dead.  Sharon smiled up at her, then casually
checked her hard drive.  Damn!  The only thing she had that was
remotely suitable was Laurie Salopek's damn T-shirt application.
Still, with a few modifications, it might work.

"Ah, I was wondering," Sharon said, looking up from the screen.

Betsy jumped to her feet.  "Yes!" she said expectantly.

"Could I use your bathroom?"

"Oh."  Betsy's face fell.  She'd obviously been expecting something
else.  "Why sure, it's just over there, down the hall to the left."

Sharon stood and picked up the computer and headed for the
bathroom, but not before catching Betsy's puzzled glance.  "Do you
always take your computer into the bathroom with you?"

Sharon shrugged.  "Don't you?"

Betsy looked up.  "Well, no.  But I don't have a laptop.  Maybe if
I did, I would."

"It's better than the newspaper," Sharon said with a grin, then
went into the bathroom.  She quickly pulled up the T-shirt form and
began making changes.  There were too many things to check off--she
wanted essay-like answers so she deleted quite a bit and began
adding blank lines, her mind scrambling for useful questions.
After all, she might as well make this count as well.

A tentative knock sounded on the door before Sharon was finished.
"Is everything all right?" Betsy asked.

"Oh, sure.  The . . . uh . . . airplane food just . . . uh . . .
didn't sit well you know?"

"There's some Pepto Bismol in the cabinet," Betsy said helpfully.
She was getting nervous and she was anxious to be off on . . .
whatever this was.

Finally Sharon was finished--her modified application was now 15
pages long.  She exited the bathroom and pulled out her portable
printer and printed out a copy.

"It's so long," Betsy said.

"Yeah, well," Sharon said, feigning sympathy.  "Nat's sort of a
civil servant.  You know how they are about paperwork.  Lets just
be thankful we don't have to do it in triplicate."

"All right," Betsy said.  "Let's get started."

* * * * *

It actually didn't take very long for Betsy to finish the
application, during which time Sharon asked quite a few pointed
questions.  She'd learned enough to know that Betsy had a mercenary
nature--if Sharon hadn't stepped in when she had, Betsy would
definitely have gone to the cousins.  Not that this was such a bad
thing--mercenaries were useful in every war.  You just had to watch
them to make sure they didn't get a better offer and change sides
in the middle.  *And* she was here just to have fun.

But now she had to find a task for Betsy.  Her thick copy of the
Die-Hards charter caught her eye as she put the computer and
completed application away.  She pulled out the charter and the
flyer and handed them to Betsy.

"All right, we're in the process of aligning all the groups against
LaCroix.  I received this," Sharon said, indicating the charter,
"in the mail a few days ago.  I'd like *you* to find out what's up
with them, what they have planned, etc."

"Sort of like Desert Shield?" Betsy asked, hefting the Die-Hards
weighty tome.

"Yeah," Sharon said, nodding her head.  "You *will* see action in
this war," she warned and promised, "Especially since it looks like
it'll escalate.  But this is a war that's going to be won on
intelligence and infiltration, not overt attacks.  At least not by
overt attacks until we're ready, until we've gathered our forces
and discovered just what's going on."

"Got it," Betsy said.

"Good.  Here's Valerie Meachum's email address.  Stay in close
contact with her.  You have mine as well.  And Betsy," Sharon said,
closing her computer case.


"Watch your back.  We'll try to watch it for you as much as we can,
but you might find yourself alone.  We're counting on you."

* * * * *

She'd left Betsy's and headed for the airport.  On the way, she
stopped at a nearby park and carefully scribbled a short note to

     I have given Betsy Vera the task of contacting the Die-Hards.
While I'm fairly certain of her loyalties we should keep in mind
that she's something of a mercenary.  It might not be a bad idea to
initiate several contacts to the Die-Hards, including hers.  I've
enclosed an application I had her fill out.  It was mostly to kill
a bit of time while I found out more, but there's some useful
information on it.
     As for me, I'm on my way to PSU.  It occurred to me that it
might not be a bad idea to keep an eye on things at the Raven and
what's up with the Cousin's.  And while I have no doubt that
Laurie's defection to the Ravenette's is real, her email notes
indicate to me that she's still thinking like a cousin.  While that
could prove useful, it could also be dangerous.
     Oh, I meant to tell you that Sandra Grey contacted me a few
days ago, but with the Betsy crisis, I just didn't have time to get
back to her.  She found the Die-Hards flyer and is interested in
helping out, but she doesn't have an affiliation.
     AND, I received an interesting email from Susan Garrett.  I'll
pass it on to you when I get a chance.

She folded the note and the application into a tiny square then
rolled it into a tight cylinder.  Putting her fingers into her
mouth she let out a sequence of whistles.  In no time a pigeon
alighted on the bench next to her.  Sharon quickly put the note and
the application in the birds leg carrier and sent it on its way to
Valerie.  It should get there sometime this morning.

The sun was just peeking over the horizon as Sharon pulled out the
torn pieces of the plane ticket.  She briefly toyed with the idea
of taping it together and going to PSU under the guise of Betsy
Vera but ruled that idea out immediately.  Sandye had only met her
once, but she couldn't take the chance that she'd remember who she

Oh well, Sharon thought.  It would have been nice to fly first
class.  She had to admit that LaCroix knew how to take care of his

So, instead, she settled for coach and a clear conscience.

The same thing's been happening to me. I thought I was going crazy till
I noticed a spoiler digest was dated April 25th (I'm not on digest for
the other lists so notes from there looked like they were current). I
ventured onto P* and there was a note there saying they'd had some
problems around April 21 or so that resulted in e-mail being held up,
and they would be getting the mail out ASAP. Hopefully *all* of it will
get delievered.

Hope to see some of you at Syndicon this weekend. I was going anyway,
but it's an added bonus that Nigel will be there. BTW, I'll be easy to
recognise as I'll probably be the only English woman on crutches there
(I broke my ankle a couple of weeks ago).

a ton of hair stuff.  One set of curlers features the picture of a woman who
looks EXACTLY like her with curly hair (I have to admit, she's really pretty

Okay, now you've done it.  All this time I haven't posted and now you've
done it!! I happen to think his "I just got out of bed" cut is fun.  Unlike
Uncle's eyebrows there is nothing "unnatural" about it.  It just looks like
Nick's gott better things to worry about that having each hair in place.  It
also speaks volumes about his current state of depression - personal
grooming is usually one of the first things to go when you're really depressed.

It invites me to go play in it and that makes me VERY HAPPY indeed!!!

Pfft!!! :p    :)

For those people who missed the issues earlier this year with the FK
interviews, the current Starlog Yearbook reprints the Hunter-Bloch
interviews with Ger and Catherine.

The issue should be on the stands right now.  I spotted it here in San
Francisco yesterday.

You have my full permission to take Ger to a professional salon and
have his hair done.  In fact, you can tell him I said so.
Uncle's eyebrows aren't unnatural.  They are flattering contrivances, like
how women wear make-up.  The darkness of them brings out his sky-blue
eyes, and accentuates his look, giving him the "Groomed for the b-room

shoulder length hair that looks slightly unkept--unlike the rat's nest
he is currently wearing.

Happy days! I just discovered that we can get the Sci-Fi Channel on
satellite. Although I don't have one (*sniff*) I have a relative who does,
so I wonder if some kind soul out there knows when FK is showing/will show
on the Sci-Fi Channel? If someone could tell me the date (and day - I called
my relative and she said, "Hmmm... it's not on on Friday..." See what we
fans have to deal with!) and whatever episodes (especially if the last
couple will be aired on there) I would be extremely grateful!!!

His pointed to the sky eyebrows give him a groomed for the bedroom look!!!
ROTFLMAO again!! I think Uncle looks very sexy without the wild devil-like
eyebrows. They'd kill the mood for me coz I'd be laughing too hard....

AH, a truthful line at last....I do prefer the longer hair as
well--however--there's nothing wrong with a little windblown look.  And
there is definitely nothing moving in there indeed....

Here's a thought on vampiric properties...  does a vampire's hair grow?

Obviously, in the FK world, it does, hence Nick's many styles through the
centuries (mostly longish).  However - how *much* does it grow?  Does it
grow only to the length it was when you were brought across?  Is that why
Uncle's hair is never longer than a buzz cut?  (Bummer to be stuck with
that hairdo throughout eternity!!  He *did* have a buzz cut when Divia got
him, didn't he?)

This would all tie in with the regenerative powers of vampires - cuts and
wounds healing, etc.  (remember Vachon's lost hand in the season opener??)

Another question.... do male vampires need to shave?  For that matter - do
female vampires need to shave?  Janette must have a dickens of a time
keeping all that skin silky smooth, since depilatories definitely weren't
in fashion in the medieval ages.   :)=
