Subject: The V-loop

        Just a reminder, for the interested (I think the obsessed are
already with us <g> -- )  The V-loop, aka the Vachon Loop, is a place
where we talk about Vachon.  Endlessly.  And Screed, and Urs...

This one's just a private mail loop that is not subject to the rules of
the lists; we include fiction and spoilers, and we permit -- nay,
encourage!--  R-to-NC-17 rated commentary.  Except (chorusing of the
30-odd, and yes, we are odd) members, there are to be No Spoilers about
the last four eps.

Anyone interested, e-me.  I am the person who started it, and I try to
keep the address list current.  It's not a list, though, it's a mail

On the general subject of private loops -- as I said, the reason for mine
is partly to have a place to break listrules, and there's a certain amount
of interpersonal conversation that would be an inappropriate use of
bandwidth on the general lists.  The Natpack has done the same thing, and
I've heard there's a Knightie loop or list.  I don't think it's really a
sad commentary on the state of the lists or anything; it's just finding
the 30 other people who are obsessively interested in the same thing as
you, in a larger community of 1000.  After two mail-system crashes that
ate Everything, I had to face facts and go digest on the larger lists so I
can download and read at leisure.  But I always want to see Vachon stuff
Right Now.

I'm more Perkulatory every day.

Subject: The Unnamed Faction - Affiliation Pin

Now that we appear to have settled on The Unnamed Faction for the Nick/
LaCroix faction (with Unnamed or The Unnamed as acceptable alternative forms),
what do we do about an affiliation pin?  A nameplate, but with no name on it?
A question mark?  At the moment, a crossed sword and Q-tip appeals to me, but
it doesn't really seem to have quite the right mysterious quality.  Ideas?

Subject: Random Thoughts on Syndicon West (LONG)

I went to Syndicon West last weekend.  This is my version of events.  I'm
sure others have theirs.  I'll welcome supplements because I'm currently
suffering from brain like a seive syndrome.  At any rate, everything here
is public stuff and most, although not all of this information, came from
panels.  I have not posted any spoilers here.  There will be times when I
allude to the last three episodes of the season, but I repeat, there are
NO SPOILERS here and I won't be posting any of them to the spoiler list

Denise Underwood offered her room for an FK gathering; Tara Housman
supplied the enthuisasm and I supplied the tapes.  I think Kira supplied
some food, as did some others.  The only other list person who was there
that I remember is Lorelei.  Yes, Nigel appeared at the party and watched
part of Dark Knight with us.

I headed down to the mixer with Tara, and he was coming out the door with
his weekend keeper.  I said something like "figures, just as I get here
the person I want to meet is leaving" and he asked me where the FK party
was.  About 15 minutes later he showed up at the door.  Bits of the party
conversation follow:

Nigel knew about the thong thread, and the purple thong thread, and he
nodded when I mentioned that at one point that the thong had apparently
become edible.  It was impossible to figure out what he thought about it
... but he did want people to know he was still around and listening in.

I got the impression Nigel likes first season the best:  "We did a much
better show that year, didn't we?"  Also, he said he was dead at the end
of Dark Knight and even he doesn't know how they brought him back:  "Those
scorch marks on the door are ME."  He misses Stilife, and kept pointing
out how much better that bar was than the set that got used later on.  And
speaking of the sets ...

The sets have been sold, and the studio is now being used by another
show.  Nigel is of the opinion that FK will never again be a series,
although the two hour movies are a possibility and people are interested
in them.

Nigel did two panels on Saturday, as well as the auction.  The first panel
was his alone.  He took questions (which felt like they were finally
mostly asked by me), showed the second season blooper reel, and then took
more questions.

Nigel of the unfettered tongue did not really live up to his billing ...
I'm sure I'll forget things, but here goes.

After reading the first six scripts of the third season, he called JP and
told him he was going to quit.  He doesn't know what they were thinking
when they let Deb go:  "how was this show supposed to work without
Janette"?  Lisa Ryder is not to blame for Tracy; Ben Bass is not WHOLLY to
blame for Vachon.  Bad writing took its toll early on.

The cast took to calling the retooling of the show "the night of the long
knives" and it was precipitated by Kapelos' leaving because suddenly they
had to cast a new character and the door opened up.  He called it dominos
being played badly, or something like that.

Blu Mankuma was wonderful and the best captain they ever had on the show.

Directing is FUN.  His episode came in under budget.  The final cut
apparently eliminated one of his favorite bits, which included a friend
of his.  He didn't give details.

The earthquake gags in the second season blooper reel come from the fact
that there were traintracks by the studio that used to rattle the place
every hour or so.

There is a third season wrap reel; he doesn't know who has it.

What the cast is doing now:  Deb and Catherine are not currently doing
anything besides commercials and voice overs and dubs.  Deb is once again
talking about leaving the business, Catherine is busy with her son. Ger is
in Santa Barbara, Kapelos is in Los Angeles making movies.

Nigel is scheduled to premiere a play called _The Piper's Son_ in June in
Toronto.  It's a new play about abusive families.  I missed some of these
details.  He didn't know dates of performance yet.

Nigel used to teach Tudor History when he still lived in England.  He
claims to be a stickler for historical accuracy ... too bad he wasn't on
the set the day of the Battle of Hasting screwup.

He's got two advanced degrees:  An honors BA (or the British equivalent)
and a teaching credential, both from University of Wales.  Apparently you
have to major in something else when you do theater there or else it was
his "something to fall back on" so he majored in history, taught for the
requisite time to get his credential, and NEVER wants to teach again -- I
understand that sentiment entirely too well myself.

Kathryn Long is coming back as Divia in spite of the fact that she is now
14 and therefore older than the 12 she was when AMPH was filmed.  She
apparently doesn't look that much older now than she did then.  Nigel said
she was "wonderful" and that the episode, Ashes to Ashes is dynamite and
will make the Knighties very happy.

He also mentioned that he worked every day that the episode was being
filmed, which I think makes this episode the one he'll appear in most in
the entire canon.

Shakespeare:  Nigel has performed in Shakespeare plays only twice:
Macbeth where he played the combined servants with the exception of the
Porter, and Merchant of Venice where he played Antonio.  I meant to ask
him if he thought Antonio was in love with Bassanio, but forgot.

Nigel will be at Syndicon East in Baltimore, May 10-12.

He confirmed that Deb left FK because they wanted to reduce her contract;
he fully supported her decision to walk on them because they had insulted
her pretty badly.

He went golfing out at Half Moon Bay and gleefully got a sunburn for the
first time in four years since the makeup people won't be able to scream
at him now.

"Star Command" was a favor to a friend because after filming was completed
they were shy ten minutes.  When told that they were hoping the show would
be picked up as a series, Nigel says he nodded politely and then snickered
and said to himself "I hope not."

Regarding the books he's writing with Pat Elrod.  They have a contract for
three of them, and their vampire is named Richard Dun (nee Richard
D'Orleans).  He is literally, the keeper of the king, as in guardian of
Arthur the warlord and then later on guardian to the rightful plantagenet
heir to the throne (Richard III's illegitimate? son).  Nigel did a cold
reading of two separate chapters of the book and it sounds quite good.
It's due out in October. At one point someone made a joke about Lancelot
that gave me the impression that perhaps their vampire is going to have
been Lancelot ... not sure about this ... Denise?

He knew about Lacroix Lite and joked that in the first five or six
episodes it wasn't just Lacroix Lite, it was Lacroix Ultra Lite and he
hated it.

He apparently had ideas that if the show were done right, there were
stories that would go for five or six seasons, exploring all that history
and he's disappointed that it didn't go that way.  When asked if he would
do "Forever Lacroix" or something like that, he said YES, if it were done


For whatever reason, the people organising did an autograph session with
B5 and Silk Stalkings people just before the auction started and then the
first stuff to be auctioned was autographed photos ... can you say
stupid?  I thought you could.  At any rate, the guy who does some of the
fight coordination for Highlander, TJ somethingorother I think, did his
best, but the auction didn't get interesting until Nigel showed up.  That
man could sell the Brooklyn Bridge, I kid you not.

First up was a crew vest/jacket from the second season.  It was a down
vest with red lettering on the front and back (I wasn't all that fond of
it, actually ... ) that was his (even had his name in the inside
collar).  Denise Underwood apparently decided once the bidding started
that it was hers, and low and behold, many hundreds of dollars later, it

He auctioned off two black hats that had nothing on them except his sweat
for 45 and 60 bucks apiece and then he auctioned a sweatshirt he was
wearing ... didn't notice the price it went for because I was busy paying
for scripts, but when he took off the shirt to give it whoever bought it,
he had another one on underneath ... of course.  He auctioned a few CD's
(that he signed), saying it was great mood music but he didn't know what
kind of mood it was great for.  He auctioned off some artwork and a few
t-shirts that fans had donated.

Scripts:  he brought Can't Run Can't Hide and Near Death and I got them
both (with a little help ...).  They went for $75 and $375 respectively.
Nigel was stunned that Can't Run went so low and told me when he handed it
to me that the last script he'd auctioned off had gone for $1000.

He auctioned other stuff, but nothing specific to the show.  It's clear
he's saving the good stuff for October.  I have a partial list of what's
going up at that time that I'll hammer out at some point.

And again, Nigel is now scheduled to be at Syndicon East in Baltimore, May
10-12.  I watched him making travel arrangements with the Con people so I
know this for sure.  Pat Elrod will be there with him for some panels and
if he does any more readings from their book, I want tapes!

As I've said, often, when you came in strongly affects your view of LC.
There are almost no first season Cousins, except Cousin Lisa, and she
became a Cousin more because she liked Nigel than because of LC. Most
Cousins became fans during second or third season.  (Mostly second.)

Me, I'm another one of the Father's Day Cousins;  I got hooked on FK
during the episode Father's Day.  I'm not into the show for Nick's
quest for mortality;  it was the dysfunctional family thing that
grabbed me.

>with LC buying it in the second half of Dark Knight, with no >hint

One reason why I've always maintained that the LC we see in flashbacks
is Nick's perception and therefore not to be trusted (no, I'm not
getting into that argument again).

>And then there was LOVE YOU TO DEATH.

>        Mean, mean, mean. That's all that needs to be said.

I think there's a great deal more to be said.  Nick killed Sylvaine.
NICK.  NOT LaCroix.  Yes, LC manipulated him, made him doubt her
"purity"  -- but so what?  Regardless of whether what LC said about her
was true, did that make it all right for Nick to kill her?

Furthermore, when Nick walks into the room, he hasn't decided one way
or the other what he's going to do.  He doesn't decide to kill her
until she makes a pass at him.   In fact, he starts to leave the room,
and it is Sylvaine who stops him.  Ultimately, Nick kills her, NOT
because of what LC said, but because she was foolish enough to tell him
she found him attractive.  Because Nick hates himself so much that he
assumed that anyone who could find something in him to like, much less
love, must be evil themselves and hence deserving of death.  *Purity
cannot stand evil, unless -- it's not really purity* (paraphrasing
roughly).  Yes, he blames LC, and LC takes the credit/blame, but the
fault is really Nick's.

And it's a good thing for Natalie that he changed his attitude before
he met her! <g>

Why?  He saved Janette from a horrible existence.  She's never found
her *captivity* so onerous.  I didn't have any such reaction to it.

>        He's still a rotten psychopathic vampire.

Why?  What makes him a psychopathic vampire?  He'd be a psychopathic
human being perhaps, but he's NOT human.  Different standards apply.
Imv, he's a pretty psychologically healthy vampire, except for that
one, *teeny* blind spot:  Nick.  Whenever Nick threatens to leave him,
LC becomes totally irrational because of his obsessive love and fear of
abandonment, and then all bets are off.  The rest of the time, he leads
a pretty ordinary vampiric life, from all indications.

Marina said:

Which brings up an important point:  we have to look at actions in the
context of their time.  There was nothing wrong with what General
Lucius did, according to the morays of that time frame.  (Heck, the
Serbian Chetniks just did the same to the Bosnian women in this decade,
and for much the same reasons.  Difference is, now we're sickened and
appalled by it, whereas in the first century, it was unexceptional.)

Human life was regarded as cheap for most of its existence.  And it
wasn't until this century that realistic alternatives existed for
vampire feeding apart from killing mortals.  LaCroix was killing for
over a thousand years before he even created Nick.  Imagine what it
would do the psyche to suddenly decide that all that killing had been
*wrong*.  It wouldn't be possible to live with the guilt involved.
Look at all the trouble Nick has, in a far shorter time frame.  LaCroix
can't *afford* psychologically, to second-guess himself.

Well, I think sometimes it's not that deliberately thought out.  I
think it's an emotional panic - I _won't_ let him (Nick) leave me!
It's that fear, imo, which has provoked virtually all of the acts
committed by LC that we, as mortals, find most despicable.

Yes.  I think sometimes LC is trying to protect Nick from himself;
sometimes he is trying to teach him;  and sometimes it's just jealous
rage/panic that provokes his actions.  I find him a very complicated
character, and one driven by a number of different forces.

I think (really), it was a convenient plot device <g> to get the body
there, so they'd find the cure.  But, if we have to assign logical
meaning to it, I kind of think he was trying to shock Nat, and punish
her, and by extension, modern science and technology, which she
represents to Nick and LC.  After all, it was modern science which had
created this first real threat to the vampire race.  And remember,
LaCroix was bitter, and with every right to be:  he was dying (as far
as he knew), and watching his entire family and race die.  And
Christine is complaining because he was mean to Nat?  Cut the man a
little slack!  Sure, Nat wasn't personally responsible, but it was
people like her, with the same attitude toward science, who were.

Precisely.  No "heros"; no "villains";  just a bunch of complicated,
three dimensional characters with a host of problems.

Totally agree.  Which is one reason why I think their relationship has
been more amicable of late.  Nick isn't trying to leave, and he's
allowing LC to be a part of his life. Hence, LC doesn't feel

As always, my two cents.

But Cynthia, they were great questions, you asked everything I would

playing Richard if "Keeper of the King" is made into a movie, he said
he thought he was to old for the part, to which Pat Elrod in the
audience shouted "We can rewrite!" Also that he will be the model for

Actually, it's the first time I have ever been the high bidder at an
auction. Usually, the prices for this sort of thing never go below
$500, and I figured this would be way up there, did not stand a chance.
I was pleasantly shocked that I got it, truly never expected to. It's
got nice big embroidery on the back with Forever Knight and a Raven,
and Nigel was kind enough to sign it for me. I shall wear it this
