Subject: Carouche question

I was wondering, if a "human" vampire sweats and cries blood, wouldn't a
vampire dog drool blood?  It is their only bodily fluid, after all.

Drool is spit and we don't know that vampire spit is blood. Otherwise, a vampire
who accidentally spit while talking would be immediately suspect of SOMETHING as
instead of clear, the spit would be red.

We do know that vampires have some sort of digestive juices so perhaps that is
clear and takes the place of "spit."

And sometimes cheese can be quite tasty and fun! (Especially when toasted on a
nice piece of rye bread)

Subject: Admin: Blank line after qhotes, please?

Please, can we all leave a blank line after the end of a quotation, before
starting to comment? I've been told that in some mailers it's difficult to
tell where the quotation stops and the reply beings if there is no blank
line.

Thanks!

Basically, it's illegal for anyone to own a handgun or automatic
weapon in Canada. There are some exceptions, of course, but the
rules regarding ownership are pretty stringent. I checked the
Firearms Act and it does not specify exactly how a weapon can be
transported, but I would assume that the minimum would be unloaded
and locked in the trunk of a vehicle.

That would apply across Canada.

Maybe it's just the extreme version of the parent who says to his little kid,
"Well if you're not coming, I'm going without you," and then walks off.
Usually, it succeeds in getting the kid to come trailing behind.

Actually, I don't know if anyone would do that in this day and age when
things seem so dangerous, but I've seen some parents do it in the past.

Bring 'em back alive!

Subject: Firearms in Canada (Was: Vehicle question)

"Brenda F. Bell" <webwarren@e.......> asked:
"Do the "licensed [firearm] transport" laws vary from Canadian province
to Canadian province, or are they the same throughout Canada?"

The firearm laws are part of the Canadian Criminal Code, and so they're
national. Handguns must be transported in a locked case in a locked
trunk, and you'd better have your licences to possess & transport same
ready. Americans must leave their handguns at the border--U.S. Customs
has lockers, I think. Canada Customs will send you back--or worse!

Long arms (rifles etc.) must not be in plain view--gun racks in the back
window of the pickup are strictly illegal. (I suspect that's a great way
to get pulled over _fast_!)

To purchase (or even borrow) any firearm, you must have a Firearms
Acquisition Certificate (FAC). To have an FAC, you must pass police
background checks and pass a knowledge & safety course or challenge exam,
which is why I know all this stuff. There are a couple of great websites
on Canadian firearms law, if you need more detailed info--just ask, and
I'll dig out the URLs.

Subject: Firearms in Canada (Was: Vehicle question)

Sorry, forgot some important points. All firearms must be transported &
stored unloaded. The ammunition for a handgun may not be transported in
the case along with the gun; I don't recall offhand if it can be in the
trunk or not. All firearms must have a trigger lock in place when they're
not in use.

Subject: My recommendations

There are just hundreds of FK stories I love and adore, but the following
two will always live large in my memory.

Blue by Maria Orive
ftp://ftp.win.net/winnet/fkvoyage/fkfanfic/ForeverNot.Challenge/blue.orive.f
not.txt

and

Ne-m'oubliez-pas by Maria Orive

ftp://ftp.win.net/winnet/fkvoyage/fkfanfic/ForeverNot.Challenge/ne-m%27oubli
ez.orive.fnot.txt

They were both Forever Nots, written way back in the old days.  If nothing
else, the awards always give me a chance to remind people that they're out
there and to remember them.

Well I wasn't going to do this, but since the rest of the list is doing
it, and since just like Rebecca, I wrote one story last year, (my only
story posted ever) I finally said, why not.  It's available on
fkfanfic.com.

The title is: LaCroix's Requiem.  It's a short story.

thank you, and i will slink back into the shadows now...

I have a couple of theories about this.

One is that LC is very much a survivor.  So he would not wait to get out of
the sun even if his children were left behind.

The other (I prefer this one) is that LC spent his mortal & most, if not
all, of his immortal life expecting and receiving instant obedience to his
orders.  So he would move off expecting Nicholas to follow even if Janette
didn't.

Thanks for the reply.  I've been to Ger5 so I know how Ger works his
appearances.  I also have been to Bridging and LCA's.  John had to cancel
from L:CA2 because he was working.  I understand the cost commitment they
actors make to cons but it seems to me that they could aleast be invited even
if they can't make it.  Just seems like a curtsey to me.
I know Deb has retired.  I've been on the list since 95.  She has since had a
baby and is very happy.  We do miss her anyway.
I just felt they should be invited anyway.  Like the aunt you must invite to
your wedding or they'll be family hell to pay.  Even if you know she won't
attend.
Thanks again and be well.

Subject: Master Sheet Update

Greetings everyone!

Sorry for the short delay. There will be a huge update
regarding the masterlist coming very shortly for the
FK stories written in 1999. Unfortunately I've been
reformatting my hard drives throughout this week, so
it's made it difficult to get any work done.

The list will be posted, and there is a site under
development for the Master Sheet as well.

Until later,
