The Thin Line Between Dark and Dawn
 Part 8
by Robbi Egersdorf


All patrons were gone and the bar help was just walking out the door.  Nick
remained unmoved.  Lacroix decided to approach him directly.  He had to know
what was going on.

He walked over to the younger vampire and set he glass on the bar.  "Why the
change, Nicholas?  Up to a week ago you wouldn't have dared to sit here and
openly drink human blood."

Nicholas turned to Lacroix after finishing his drink, with the same dead pan
expression, "What does it matter, Lacroix?"  The voice was calm and low,
with an edge to it.  He almost spat the name. "You finally have what you've
wanted.  An obedient son."  His words dripped with enmity.  "Now show me to
my quarters.  I need some rest.  I've traveled a long ways to be here."

"Maybe tonight you can elucidate me on your change of attitudes, after
you've had your rest.  Follow me."

Maybe it was fatigue as he said.  He would give him that, but he would not
tolerate this insolence beyond that.  There was a definite irritation
building in Lacroix.


Natalie hurried to get her work done so she could leave early.  She planned
to go shopping, then have breakfast ready by the time Nick arrived at the
loft.  She was so excited at the prospect that she went out to her car
before she realized she had left her purse.

When she arrived at the loft and stepped through the sliding door, she
stopped suddenly, her arms full of groceries.  A sudden chill coursed
through her as gooseflesh appeared on her arms.  This place was so barren.
She had never realized it before.  Why now? She shook her head as if to rid
herself of the feeling.

Nick had arrived in good spirits, humming some tune or other.  Natalie was
unaccustomed to his high spirits.

"Smells wonderful, Nat."  He walked over behind her and put his arms around
her waist as she was dishing the scrambled eggs onto two plates.  Just then
the toast popped up.

"I'll get that."  He whispered into her ear then kissed it and moved away to
the toast.

It all seemed so normal and natural.  Everything their relationship had
never been before.  The relationship that had started out between a
pathologist with a secondary interest in vampire medicine and a vampire cop
was now only between a man and a woman.  He wasn't exactly an ordinary man,
as this man had 800 years of memories and experiences.

Could he learn to live a normal life after being a vampire for that long?
Natalie couldn't even imagine what it would be like to live that long, to go
from life to life, never growing old, never really changing.  She was
noticing the slow appearance of wrinkles around her eyes, she definitely
looked older this year than she did last year.  Now she wouldn't have to
worry about growing old as Nick continued to be endlessly young.  They could
have a family, grow old together - if he had a chance to grow old.

How many times had he taken a bullet and miraculously recovered.  More times
than she cared to think about.  She probably didn't even know all the times.
 Could he learn to be more careful with his life now that it was more
fragile?  What if he forgot at a vital moment.  Habits die hard, especially
habits that are eight centuries old.  She looked over at his smiling face as
he set the table.  He's so deliriously happy.  It's good to see him happy.
He deserves a chance a chance at a normal life.  Lord knows he's had his
share of misery and grief - a lot of which was a direct result Lacroix being
his master.  And what of Lacroix?  What would he do if he found out Nick was
mortal again?

She placed the plates on the table and poured herself a fresh cup of coffee.
 "You know, I don't even know if you like coffee or not.  I don't know if
you like eggs or how you like them cooked.  I don't know...."

He walked over to her and gently put his fingers to her lips, stilling the
parade of words from her mouth.  Then he lovingly placed a kiss on her lips
with his hands on her shoulders. "Nat,  I haven't eaten in a very long time.
 They didn't have coffee back during the time of the crusades.  *I* don't
even know, but I want to try.  I want to try everything.  How else am I
going to know what I like or don't like?"  Then he placed a kiss on her
forehead, pulled back and looked into her brown eyes.  "Now stop worrying so
much and let's eat.  I just realized how hungry I am."

They both walked over to the table and sat.


Nicholas DeBrabant slept fitfully that day, tossing and turning.  At one
point he sat straight up in bed, his eyes glowing yellow and his canines
descended, his forehead drenched with bloodsweat.  "Natalie!  Natalie!"  He
looked around and realized he wasn't at the loft.  It took him several
minutes to orient himself to where he was and that he was no longer Nick
Knight, homicide detective or a vampire trying to find a cure to become
human again, but Nicholas DeBrabant, a vampire who would always be a vampire
, having been separated from everything human in him.

At the same exact moment, in the loft one Nick Knight sat bolt upright in
bed, dripping wet with clear human sweat, his heart pounding a hundred miles
a minute calling "Natalie!  Natalie!"

He looked around the room and to see that he was in his own bed in his own
bedroom, alone.  He lay back down with a sigh.

After they had both eaten breakfast and done the dishes together, they had
stood face to face and gazed into each other's eyes.  How long had they
waited till they could be together like this without having to risk
Natalie's life?  He remembered holding a lock of her hair and drinking in
her scent as only a mortal human man could.  As he had moved to kiss her it
had been Natalie who had pushed him away, then turned from him.

Was she crying he couldn't tell, but there had been a catch in her voice,
"I don't think this is a good time.  There's a lot of things you need to get
used to in your new life.  I think it would be best if we took this slowly.
One step at a time."  That said, she had picked up her purse and coat and
left without another word, without even looking back at him.

Why did he get the distinct impression that their relationship was over even
before it had a chance to begin?


"Natalie Lambert!  You are being absolutely ridiculous about this whole
thing." she reprimanded herself on the drive home,  "What is there to be
afraid of?  He certainly can't bite anymore."

The tears flowed unchecked.  The only man she had ever really wanted had
been this close to her, willing and finally able to fulfill her every
fantasy.  All she could do was turn tail and run out the door as fast as she
could like a scared rabbit.  "Oh, man am I stupid.  What is wrong with me?
What is wrong with this situation?"

There had been many a night when she had awakened from dreams of Nick
holding her, kissing her, making love to her.  Sometimes with the beast
rearing it's head the feel of his fangs sliding into the flesh of her neck
and her life flowing into him, giving herself to him without boundaries.
Other times there was no beast between them, just the human Nick there with

She pulled into her parking spot, closed her eyes and bowed her head,

She drifted off to sleep that morning remembering the gentleness and warmth
of his touch as he had cupped her chin in his hands just before leaning
forward to kiss her.  Just before she had pushed him away and left.

I'm a 28-year-old male, a writer and reporter, and you (PTB) have managed to
make me cry recently (just ask my wife!!!).  Yes FK is "just" a TV show.  Yes
Nick, Natalie, and LaCroix are just made up characters.  But you've really
made something here.  You've really created believable people here, people we
can relate to.  This show's got style, mood, great concepts and plots, and
takes place in a well-conceived universe.  What I'm saying if, FK is one rare

I know that there's only so much you can do.  We've been trying to do a lot
to keep the show going too.  What else can we do?  Give us some hope.  We'll
do whatever we can. It would help to know that you (PTB) have not given up.

All this is a long way of saying, I second the motion.  Please don't let FK
die.  Even if you come back to it years from now (a la "Alien Nation"), the
spark among all the actors and creative people may be gone.  We've got to
move as soon as possible!!!

You've got my undying (undead?) support.

Subject:Nick's Hair/ Uncle's Brows
We should line them both up for an Oprah Winfrey "total makeover". (-;

My golden boy needs to run a comb through his locks--before dreds start
to appear (hmmm...Ger with dreds, now that's  concept).
As for Uncle, I don't think they've added extensions because there is little
to extend (uh-oh...out come the cousins).  He could don a wig though in
A theory: hair reflects the transformation of the character.  Uncle has been
uncle for so long; his character hasn't changed much, per se.  Therefore,
his hair hasn't changed.  Nick, on the other hand, is constantly changing.
I remember when I was going through the "who am I" crisis I had black, blonde,
red, platinum, etc hair and one minute it was short, the next it was long.

However, from a pure aesthetic stance I believe Nick's hair looked the
best in Francesca (he looks closer to my age--umm, mmm good).  My next
favorite is (quite the opposite) his hair in Fever.  I loved the clean-cut
corporate do.
And Uncle--that military buzz does his adorable face justice.  He has
that little-boy look that I believe they are trying to conceal.

An uncle make-up theory:  perhaps they are trying to make him look clownish--
like the joker in Batman, because, after all, he has that sardonic sense of
humor for the profane.

USA Network original movie... "Hush Little Baby" aired last weekend.
(Yes, I swore I would boycott USA for their RUE behavior, but Ger was
on!)  The show stars Diane Ladd (Ger is not in the TV guide credits),
but he plays a rich doctor, husband, father type.  It was so refreshing
to see him in a current role, in the DAYLIGHT!  And, they had a nice,
little romance scene. (More than I've EVER seen w/Nick & Nat!)

The movie was released in 1994, so I figure that was when Ger was on
contract to USA & they probably made this during hiatus.  It's a murder
mystery & Ger gets to be a good guy...

Yes, we heard him read from the first two chapters at Syndicon East this past
weekend.  It's going to be a long wait till January!  We were all lobbying for
Nigel to do the book-on-tape version, if they get to do one.

I think this was a mistake by the person compiling the nominations.  I don't
know anything about the author of the story, but I do have the zine, and she
don't say he was a co-author, just that he was the *inspiration* for the story.
Someone making a nomination must have misread that introduction.

Proof that Nigel does read the list regularly - he had a comment on this

said they really haven't changed since the first season, go back and check

Subject:      Brief Syndicon report

*Warning--emotional content ahead*

There's so much to say about this weekend that it must be savored and said
slowly and carefully, just in case anything is forgotten.

Yes, Ger can talk the stripes off a zebra, but only Nigel could then sell
those stripes to a perfectly healthy leopard.  His live reading of the Raven
legend from "Blackwing" was phenomenal (in addition to the readings from the
novel he and Pat Elrod are authoring).  How blessed we have been with the
actors chosen for FK, who have faces and voices and talent enough to share
with us on their own time!

And that having been said--

I don't watch Highlander with more than a casual interest, but my second
thought resulting from the weekend is that I envy those of you who do.
Listening to Bill Panzer and the others speak about  show, I felt my
heart ripped from my chest and almost burst into tears.  The care and
continuity in plot and casting, the marketing and merchandising, the
attention to what the fans want to see and what would be best for the series
were so evenly balanced with the constraints of profit and pricing and the
mean evil of the business--I was stunned by the sheer immensity and delicacy
of it.  What Forever Knight COULD have been if someone other than us (and
the occasional writer, actor, crewperson, and THE music guy) had actually
given a damn . . . .

Excuse me while I wipe the tears from my eyes.

And I will say more, later, when I have collected myself enough to give you
more fact than emotion.

Part of the reason he kept it so short was for the role. Well now that FK is
over, I assume he will be engaged in " accellerated hair growth". I know he
does grow his hair some based on other roles he did before/after FK breaks
and seeing him in the flesh between season 2 and 3.

Somebody sent me chocolate for Listmommy's Day.  Godiva chocolate, no less.
 And anonymously.  (The package was sealed, so I'm fairly certain it
isn't/wasn't an attempt to poison me.)

I am flattered.  I am intrigued.  I am, quite simply, absolutely delighted.

The card was signed, "From a very out-of-factional Cousin".  A simple
listmommy's day gift?  Or a subtle attempt by the Cousins to woo/bribe me
away from the Natpack?  Or was this the work of a Mercenary, either for fun
or profit?  Hmmm.

Whatever the motive behind the gift, it's a lovely thought.  And a
delicious one.  To my anonymous benefactor: thank you!

You saw Ger "in the flesh" (your words, not mine).  I'm jealous!
PS Did you get to see him in the flesh with long hair?

Sorry, I just pulled my mind out of the gutter.

Hi all,
I got the neatest birthday present-THE VAMPIRE BOOK:THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF
THE UNDEAD, edited by J. Gordon Melton. FK gets a 1 1/2 page blurb in it.
There are a couple of problems, however. Lacroix is spelled Lecroix and
Janette is spelled Jeannette.

I'm afraid I am going to have to cancel the Last Knight party I had
scheduled for this Sat. in
Rhode Island.  There has been a death in my family and I need to attend to it.

My apologies.

It takes all the running you can do to stay in the same place.
If you want to get anywhere, you must run at least twice as fast as that.

Wow... I think I can almost start thinking straight after an overwhelming
weekend at Syndi-Con East.  This was my first opportunity to see Nigel
Bennett in real life (not Real Life; that's another thing altogether I

It was a fantastic weekend.  Nigel was funny, informative, riveting, and
above all charming.  He did several readings from the vampire novel he and
Pat Elrod are writing ("Keeper of the King," due out from Baen Books in
January 1997).  As just one example, he read a scene concerning the
aftermath of a killing spree that was extremely powerful; the imagery
remains firmly implanted in my mind.  Can't wait for January to buy a
copy of the book!

He talked about everything from his experiences directing "Francesca" to
a script he submitted in the second season (but that was rejected) that
would have explained how Lacroix came back to life.  Yes, it was a much
better explanation that "I am too old and powerful" or whatever it was
that Lacroix said in "Killer Instinct."

Good sport that he is, he agreed to read a bit from "The Tale of Peter
Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter -- the way he says "don't go into Mr. McGregor's
garden:  your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs.
McGregor" would make any child shiver.  ;^)

He also was nice enough to sign a number of items to be added to the
charity auction at the Weekend with Ger -- so maybe those going to the
Weekend who are also big fans of Nigel (and I know there are a lot of
crossover fans!) will find something to tide them over until Nigel's fan
club auctions off his wardrobe & such in October.  He did tease me by
*pretending* that he was hesitant to sign things for a bunch of Knighties
-- please don't tease an extremely nervous fan who just might melt into a
puddle at your feet at any moment!  ;^)

Nigel also described a great idea he had for a script to finish off Season
Three.  Too bad they didn't pick his idea; I thought it was terrific, even
if it did send Lacroix up in smoke at the end.  Well, he could always have
come back periodically in flashbacks and dream sequences as he did in the
first season.  Still... I've always been one of those Knighties who think
Nick wouldn't be nearly as much fun without Lacroix tormenting him all the
time.   What does that make me, a Tormented Knightie?

Still, since I don't want Lacroix to be successful in his efforts to get
Nick to accept his vampire nature, I certainly can't declare myself a
Cousin no matter how big a fan of Nigel's I am...  So I'm thinking of
starting a faction for those who really want to hear an entire audiobook
of Nigel Bennett reading "Peter Rabbit" and the other Beatrix Potter

Should we call ourselves the Bunnies (fuzzy, warm connotations) or the
McGregors (let's see how much he can scare those kids)????
