Well, setting aside the fact that Nick's cure might not come from Nat,
I don't think he would *need* to remain a cop.  Nick was nearly killed
by a gunshot in The Fix.  Assuming his memory is fully functioning (a
fact I'm not totally sure of), that incident should have stuck in his
mind as evidence that maybe being a *mortal* cop is not that good an

Nick hasn't spent an excessive amount of time being a cop.  In Spin
Doctor, the flashback involved him teaching archaeology.  And judging
by his tone of voice when describing that particular life to Nat, it
seemed to have been a position he enjoyed and hated leaving.  So I
think it's entirely possible that Nick would decide to teach again.

Of course Nick is wealthy enough to not have to work at any job if he
so wishes.  But I think he would still work at something (I don't think
he would necessarily remain a cop).

If Lester Dent wrote FK, Nick's loft would be at the top of the CN Tower
accessible only by a secret high-speed elevator that brings everyone to
their knees when it stops except Nick due to his muscles which are "like
bundles of thin piano wire covered with a bronze lacquer."

His group of co-adventurers would be composed of "Schank" Schanke, a
good-natured, gorilla-like man who was always arguing with "Jav" Vachon,
the impeccably dressed, spat-wearing, pony-tailed lawyer. "Joey" Reese
would join them occasionally and announce his presence by putting his
milk-pail sized fists through the nearest water-cooler.  "Mick" Micklos
would be away in Antofagasta on the site of newly-discovered ancient
Mesopotamian brewery.  "Chips" Aristotle would make a brief appearance as a
hostage, but then using his skills at altering computer records vanish
without a trace.

Nick's beautiful golden-eyed and bronze skinned cousin, Nat, would make a
visit, teasing Jav and Schank with her thinly veiled sexuality while Nick
chides her about not obeying him and risking her life chasing after them.
She pulls twin .45's out from the folds of her mini-skirt and shoots the
buttons off Jav's braces without harming him and says she can take care of

Lucien Sunlight, a brilliant evil genius who would give Nick the most
problems of his entire life would be the secret mastermind behind the
current world-threatening crisis.  He would be accompanied by Janette
Duchene, a slinky, sultry, French-speaking woman who would be so attracted
to Nick that she throws herself at him but is repulsed by his lack of
emotional response.

The Caddy would have the license plate "Nick-1", be bulletproof, and be
hidden in the secret underground garage of the CN Tower.  Nick would always
stand on the running boards as "Schank" drove, the wind whipping over his
hair, which moves not, as his gold-flecked eyes miss nothing.  The streets
are cleared for him by Toronto's finest as drivers and pedestrians gasp
with wonder at this giant mental and physical marvel.

The entire 181 episode series would culminate in a massive battle between
Nick and Sunlight in which the Tower, groaning, leans, and block of masonry
leave it to sail across Toronto.  The spire on top of it falls off while
citizens run screaming into the streets as large ribbons of flame crash
across the heavens.  Cars and buses are picked up and hurled far by some
sinister force as giant invisible amoebae threaten the city with their
paralyzing stings.  The earth opens up and swallows factories whole.  All
radio transmission is turned off and all powered vehicles are stopped by
the push of a button.  Crimson snow falls hising on people, and these
become dust.  Huge holes are ripped in the earth's crust as a dagger two
hundred feet high hangs in the heavens.  The demons of Hell come forth to
challenge Nick's band.  Nick and Sunlight confront one another in the
shattered remains of his Tower headquarters while the winds howl through
the crumbling walls.  They grapple, and in the process rip Nick's shirt to
shreds.  Nick manages to free himself from his foe's clutches as Sunlight
teeters at the edge of the wall.  Nick reaches out and tries to save his

Nick would be a world-weary ex-champion jockey turned PI who had to quit riding
steeplechasers because his "medical problem" prevented him from riding in the
day, when all the races are run.

Lacroix would be the nefarious, wealthy owner who was killing stewards by an
undetectable method so he could be appointed to the Jockey Club's ruling body,
thus ensuring winning the high social standing he so desired.

Natalie would be his innocent niece who inadvertantly helps Nick discover the
truth and convict her uncle. She initially hates Nick for revealing her uncle
to be a cad and murderer, then realizes she can't live without him.

Vachon would be Nick's young cockney assistant/muscleman with a black belt in
karate who makes friends with the grooms and drinks with them in pubs until he
learns all their inside secrets, incidentally seducing all the young barmaids
he meets.

Schanke would be a diamond-in=the-rough horse trainer, Nick's ex-employer and
now his client because Lacroix had him warned off falsely.

Tracy would be the young upper-class woman rebelling against her stifling
prospects of going to finishing school and then marrying someone who looks like
Prince Charles by becoming a professional racehorse groom and "doing her two"
in Schanke's stable. She witnesses, though she doesn't know it, Lacroix slip a
steward the mickey while she is saddling one of her runners at Doncaster Races.
Vachon chats her up to find the truth and there is a short and vague sex scene.

Sometime during the story both Nick and Vachon get beaten severely, and
consider giving up the whole PI scene.

In the end Nick gets Lacroix convicted, the Jockey Club tightens their security
measures on prospective officials (hiring Nick to do the checks), Nat says "I
do" to Nick, Schanke gets hislicense back and Vachon and Tracy have a short-lived
but torrid affair. Everyone lives happily ever after, and Schanke lets Nick
gallop his retired Grand National winner (the one Nick rode to victory at
Liverpool) at night, just for old times' sake.

These have been great so far, so I thought I'd give it a try.

If FK had been written by Morgan Llywelyn it would take in ancient Ireland.
 Lacroix would be a Druid priest and Nat would be a healer, and our reluctant
hero, Nick's number one wife, Janette  wife number two,  and Tracy would be
wife number three.  A flashback to a Samhain ceremony mishap would explain
the origins of vampires.

If FK had been written by Marion Zimmer Bradley Nat would be a
parapsychologist still trying to give Nick back his mortallity, but using a
slightly different method.  Lacroix would try to stop her all along the way.

Subject:      If FK were directed by Spielberg

I like this "if someone else wrote Forever Knight" thread! Cool. Thanks,

Let's see if we can't mess with it.

If Steven Spielberg directed FK, there would be cliff-hangers at every
commercial, with Natalie alternately screaming for Nick and bashing Lacroix
on the head with the nearest available unlikely weapon (say, an Erlenmeyer
flask or something).  Nick would *always* have a two-day stubble, like
Vachon, would still be wearing leather, and would carry a bigger gun.
Lacroix's entrances would coincide with computer-graphic animation that
would give the audience vertigo and really loud, menacing music (hmm. no
change there).  Giant bats would end up carrying off most of the major
characters, leaving Nick to pull off a really unlikely save with something
the audience overlooked in the first episode.

If Quentin Tarantino directed FK, the Ick Factor would go off the scale,
Screed would move up to major player status, there would be a zillion words
you couldn't say on television bleeped out, Janette would return to Toronto
addicted to curare, with Nick unsure of whether to kill himself, Natalie,
Lacroix, or the guy holding his markers from the last prizefight, Vachon.

If Francis Ford Coppola directed FK... oh, wait. [Name removed by request] did this already. :)

If Woody Allen directed FK, Nick would slouch and wear glasses and stutter
around Natalie, who would flutter around saying "la di da" when her
attempted cures for Nick failed.   Lacroix would revert to LC Lite from
early third season, trying to get Nick to get out and swing!! Vachon would
make passes at Natalie, Tracy would get upset and go over to Nick's place
drunk, Janette would return to Toronto with a whole new lease on life now
that she's gotten into past life therapy.

If Jane Campion directed FK, Nick would be voluntarily mute but continue to
play the piano, which Lacroix would leave out in the sun in order to force
Nick to talk, until Natalie figures out a way to get him a synthesizer,
which he has to pay her back for by giving her massages and pedicures.
(Okay. He'd be doing something else... but this ain't JADFE, guys.)

know nuthin' 'bout curin' vamps, Miss Natalie."  Nat, of course, would slap

Nat continues to try to cure Nick by not allowing him to drink blood.  Nick
would finally break down, shake his fist in the air and vow, "I will never
go hungry again!" as he drinks all the spare blood in the morgue fridge.
Nat would shake her head and reply, "Well, tomorrow is another night."

Vachon, Nat's husband, would find out that she has been fantasizing about
finding a cure for Nick's condition and walks out on her.  Nat runs after
him, crying, "But if you leave, Vachon, where shall I go?  What shall I do?"
To which he will have to reply, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a rat's ****."

Someone said that nothing would happen if Beckett wrote it, but I dare
to argue that the follwowing would occur.
Lacroix: "So, he is coming."
Nick: "He said he would come."
Lacroix: "Are you sure?"
Nick: "Yes, he told me he would come."
Lacroix: "Do you know when he is coming?"
Nick: "No, he only told me he would come."
Nick and Lacroix are standing by a tree, late at night, but dawn is
nearing.  Suddenly, Tracy and Vachon appear, Tracy riding on Vachon's
back, like a dog.
"Wolf, Wolf".
"You are waiting for someone?" Tracy asked.
Nick: "Yes, we are waiting for him.  He said he would come."
"Come on doggy," Tracy says, whipping Vachon.  "Hurry up!"
The two disappear.
Suddenly, Natalie comes by, dressed as a clown.
"What are you doing here?" she askes.
Lacroix: "We are waiting for Godot."
"Really.  Isn't it strange tonight.  I just came from town; lots of
festivities going on.  Goodbye."
Natalie disappears.
The sun is rising.
Lacroix: "Are you sure he said he was coming?"
Nick: "Yes, he told me he would be here."
Lacroix notices the sun beams coming across the land.
Lacroix:  "Well, Nicholas, I am going to wait for him in this tomb.  Care
to join me."
Nick: "No.  He said he would come."
Lacroix goes and hides in the tomb.  The sun comes over the horizon, burning
Nick up and incenterating the tree he stood by.
The End

Now, if MR. Star Wars wrote FK
Lacroix would be the head of an evil space empire.  We would discover that
Nick and Natalie were really brother and sister.  Nick would have these
cool powers given to him by the good force (wait, doesn't he already have
those).  Lacroix and Nick would do battle for control of the universe.
Later, we would find out that Lacroix is really Nicks' father(wait, that's

Tracy would be his huge, mammoth side-kick (hee--hee).
Janette would be this small green creature who coaches Nick on how to
develop his powers.

The following is a conversation I've had with the Sci Fi Channel.
I asked them if they were going to edit the first and second
season episodes to put in more commericals.  Here's my explaination
of my question and their response.

Oh, right, I understand.  While just about every show seen in syndication
(even recent shows, like THE SIMPSONS) has had minutes cut out to make
room for extra commercial time, I don't believe we have any plans to cut
our episodes of FK down any further.  We don't have the rights to the
uncut Canadian versions (and I'm not sure we would air them if we could,
since we do need the extra commercial revenue).  But the versions we plan
to air are the same ones that aired in the U.S. in first-run syndication.

I hope this clears things up.

If Marvel Comics wrote Forever Knight, Nick would
be a super hero fighting for Justice, Freedom, and
the Vampire way, and wear a lot of Lycra. Nat would
be Nick's sidekick, and would die, come back from the
dead, die again, be cloned, come back from the dead
again (you get the picture...), LaCroix would spend
half of the time plotting world domination, and the other
half of the time helping Nick fight others who plot world
domination. Vachon, Tracy, and Screed would be Nick's
helpers in his quest for the equality of Vampires.

Subject:      If someone else wrote FK -

Here's my contribution:

C.S. Lewis:  The script would mostly contain long dialogues about "good" and
"evil", and the resolution of every episode would tie in to the possibility
of redemption for Nick's (and others') souls.  A lion wouldfigure
prominently.  Eventually, the characters would all wake up and realize that
they had been living in another land, reachable only from the picture hung in
Nick's apartment.

Dylan Thomas:  The show would be composed of brilliant (but confusing)
imagery, and the dialogue would be meant to convey a meaning rather than an
actual conversation.

More later...

I will be moving to PA soon (I have a REAL JOB, using my degree and
everything).  Unfortunatly I haven't had time to keep up with the
episodes (I don't even know how many I've already missed).

I would like the name and address (e-mail & postal) of some kind person
who can send me tapes.  I'll pay for tapes & postage ofcourse.

Thanks in advance,

That there are only 15 (?) actors in Canada. David Ferry, from TTOTS had a
guest role on Friday the 13th, The Series in the ep broadcast this week. You
remember him Shrewtherers... His was the Sly of Thursday nights performance,
and the crossdressing Gremio of Friday nights performance.

ObFK: If Terry Brooks wrote FK...

Nick would have spent his fortune to buy a magic kingdom in which Nat was the
beautiful maiden he was in love with, Schanke was a 6 ft Shaggy dog court
detective and scribe, LaCroix was the evil Meeks, determined to keep a
pendant capable of curing Nick, Janette was Nightshade, a witch with shifting
loyalties, and all of them were bound by the magic of Nick's own imagination.

Subject:      Another Song Challenge

This is a slight twist from the last song challenge, where we came up with
what songs we thought fit the characters.

What I'm suggesting is, what CDs, tapes, LPs, or 8-Tracks (yes, we know
Schanke kept 8-Tracks [ref.: Dying For Fame] would our fav. characters
keep on their shelves, in their cars, or at work, or working out for
physical activities.

Nat: CDs - Home: Loreena McKennitt
                 Beethoven (Classical music in general)
           Car:  Tori Amos
           Work: Melissa Etheridge
           Physical Activities: Depends on the activity :-)
             [if need be take this over to JADFE or label ADULT:]

Nick: CDs -  Home: Classical
             Car: LaCroix's NightCrawler monologues from the radio
                     (unless Tracy's in the car)
             Work: ?

This is of course, when they don't have Fred's Soundtrack in their

Anyways, if you have suggestions, post 'em. We gotta have something to do
