Subject:      War:  Okay, I'll bite

I've been reading posts describing wars on and off for a year now, and I
confess: I _still_ don't understand the war thing.  I mean, I know there are
people who take sides, and I now know that there are mercenaries ... and I
remember something a year ago about frogs ... but as for the actual mechanics
of it all, I'm at a loss.

Is there anyone who would be kind enough to explain to me exactly what it's
all about?

Please e-mail to iocaste@a........  Thanks!

Subject:      when in 1228?

I have a little nitpicky question...  When in 1228 is Nick brought across?
Spring?  Summer?  Is there anything that ever says?  The copy I have of
DBTLOTM is very fuzzy so I can't really tell what those people are wearing
in that dark little tavern.  I mean, LC's wearing a cape, but since when has
LC ever dressed for the season?  You'd never see the guy in Bermuda shorts
and t-shirt even at the height of summer in Arizona!

The reason I'm asking is for a piece of fic I'm working on.  I need to know
how much time I have to work with...

Thanks in advance!

Janette is being a bit facetious there -- going on about LC never
forgiving them for defoliating the area, ducking the information she knows
Nick wants -- but the way DD says, "where *didn't* he have plantations"
sounds serious.  (Plays into that immortal longing for fruit, no? <g>)
Evidently, LC was involved in Vietnam during the time of France's colonial

But while we're on the topic of CRCH, have the uniforms LC and his cohorts
were wearing in that bunker been identified?  They may or may not have
been associated with a real force, but they must have had reliable cover
stories, mustn't they?  Even in a war zone?  Nick named the base he was
heading for....

But though LC has apparently long preferred to associate himself with the
upper crust, I would not accuse him of adopting their value systems.  He
chose Janette, after all, and wanted her to be "so much more than mere
nobility."  He was a Roman general, but I doubt he was very distant from
the concerns of his men.  At the time he delivered his "material wealth
brings only ruin" lecture to Nick, he was dressed as a member of the upper
classes (and Janette was in men's clothes....) but his speech did not
sound as if its origin was distaste.

It sounded like experience.
Another untold tale of LaCroix, perhaps.

But the fact that LC labeled Nick's ill-gotten funds "blood money"
suggests that his emphasis was on the why, not the what.  I cannot ever
remember seeing LC at a time he was not living well.  But money serves
him, not the other way around.  If you've seen BM, you've seen the look on
Nick's face as he turns to the chest; at that point in time, the money
owned him.

It is something he has gotten over, of course.
Another untold tale of Nick.

Lisa Prince asked:

A few months back, there was an amusing piece of fanfic on that subject,
but I can't recall either author or title.  It began as if it were a
Valentine piece, but it turned out Nat was giving LC driving lessons.

In canon, I don't recall ever seeing him drive, but considering the
development and spread of the car, and how quickly (in LC's terms) they
have occurred, I suppose it is possible that he's never bothered to learn.
On the other hand, Aristotle drove in FitP, and if *he* can.... :-)

Does anyone know when the following stations will be airing Ger's ep. of
Outer Limits:

the CBS station out of Toledo, Ohio(I don't remember the station letters)
ITV out of Edmonton, Alberta

I also get it from NTV from here, but nobody ever knows what they are going
to show, as they are so hard to get a hold of!!


Oh one other thing, I don't know if the people who pick up NTV off of
satellite know this, but they are now airing first season(Canadian) of FK on
Wednesday nights, and second season on Saturday nights.

I think it's more likely for Schanke to speak french than Nat.  I mean,
have we ever gotten any indication that Schanke wasn't raised in Canada,
and thus had it in school?  I seem to remember some talk about Nat's parents
being in the states.  Was she raised there, or in Canada?  (Admittedly, it'd
be a stretch for her AND her brother to both move to the same Canadian
city independantly, but still ...)

Yes, in Dark Knight he mentions that he spent the summer of 1976 driving around
the Great Lakes region with his "best buddy" in a Caddy just like Nick's. I
think it was "Madison, WI, to Chicago, to Dekalb" but I could be wrong about the
last 2.  I remember they were all Wisconsin/Illinois area states though.  I got
the impression he went to college in the US, at the least, which would *imply*
a US upbringing.  Besides, I'm not sure a Canadian-raised person would have
identified 1976 as "a wild Bicentennial summer". <G>

I just saw this on Showtime. I don't know if it will be shown on network

I have to say that the ep was weird, but then, it was Outer Limits,
after all. Ger played a cop!.

The thing that annoys me about this whole thing is the way Showtime
listed the show on it's web page. In the credits of the ep Ger gets
second billing behind Mel Harris. On the web page, they didn't even
mention him. Who's idea was that?

Subject:      Ger's Outer Limits Ep

Well, I'm sure there will be many others posting on this...

Ger's Outer Limits episode was awesome!  And it was interesting to see Ger in
a 1996 non-FK role, but hair similar (and those sideburns) to Nick's.  One
thing I was intrigued with at the Shrewthering was how Ger seemed so
different from Nick.  This role wasn't much of a stretch from Nick, in some
ways.  I'd have to see this again to generate more comments.

And the Immortal Beloved/Unnamed in me was kicking the chair going, "Oh, why
did he have to be a cop married to a coroner????"


I missed the first 5 minutes because of the Bulls game!  (Thanks, hon, but no

Okay, and Ger also did this Trilogy of Terror II post-FK - and WHEN is that
shown and where?

The Outer Limits episode is shown again Tuesday at 9:30 pm ET  on Showtime
for those who didn't catch it before.  I'll be retaping!  Wow, how nice to
not have to worry about commercials for a change!  BTW, I can bring this (if
I get the WHOLE thing taped this time) to the Gerthering if anyone wants to
see/copy it.

Is there enough FK in this post?  How about an ObligFK about "Blackwing"?

I didn't think Marian and Nick did it when this ep first came out, but I'd
have to say... I guess so!  Are we talking plot hole or what?  Even if Marian
had taken the killer out of Nick, wouldn't it be logical that she could have
at least tried to kill HIM when they were, um, together?  And I'm still not
happy with Nat's stomping on Nick's first good feelings in a long time - give
him a break!  Even if it was nothing to get excited over, let the boy feel
good about himself for a change!

I think that covers the ObligFK...  ;D

It will eventually be on network tv, all the eps on Showtime this season

It was a good-sized role, and I liked it fine. However (little kiddies,
leave the room):

There were naked people in it, but Ger wasn't one of them. Fully clothed
throughout. Even in bed with his wife, he seemed to wearing pajamas AND a
robe! Somewhat disappointing to me. Do I have to go to see him live on
stage to see him in less than full dress?

Sorry for this post--thanks for indulging my little attack of libido.

        station letters)

If you have a local CBS affiliate that's showing the new Outer Limits,
it's picking it up in syndication. First-run broadcasts in the U.S.
are only on the Showtime cable network. Ergo Ger's episode will be
shown on your local station next year, as the syndies are currently
showing the first season.

Ive read in an old vampire books that the horse is to be a white stud who
has not been bred and who has never stumbled.
Some other "horse/vampire" things Ive read are that it is to be a mare that
is in season......also read about using a pregnant mare, she will avoid the
vamp. grave to protect her unborn foal.....there are too many stories about
different horses used for searching for vamps to mention and I dont wanna
get hollered at for wasting bandwith.

Spoiler space ahead

I think that the scenes were probably easy to come by and reused. Also,
they were graphically relevant to both episodes. Just my opinion.

Marcia Tucker asked:

OK.  Here's the most current list:

                  Themes in FOREVER KNIGHT

Light & Darkness (classical good vs. evil analogy) / hope vs. despair
Alienation, loneliness, the loner as an Outsider in both worlds
Self-loathing vs. self-acceptance
Humanity & the human condition: denying our base (evil) nature,
       our 'animal' instincts, 'civilization' as a sham / veneer
Human foibles, comic and otherwise (Schanke)
Redemption / Medieval Catholic views on penance & atonement
Nihilism / futility / despair
Forbidden love / the 'untouchable' aspect / self-denial  (Nick & Natalie)
Sensuality & sexuality (including bisexuality)
Morality vs. amorality (Lacroix)
Abuse & many deeper, darker psycho-sexual aspects of human
         nature: sado-masochism, control, incest, slavery...
Immortality: the Dorian Gray syndrome, 'moving on'
Self-delusion (if you wish for it hard enough, can you bring it to pass?)
Blood symbology, sensual on one side, religious on the other:
         blood lust vs. blood redemption
Vampires as an overall metaphor to the human condition
Lacroix, Janette and Nick as a Dark Trinity (Father, son and...daughter!)
The Beast: control vs. losing control
Ambivalence: wanting something you also fear; being pulled in two
        directions  ("Just be yourself," / "Just change yourself.")
        Neither a realistic alternative
The Soul / Eternity/Life After Death / God / Judgment
Intolerance & rigidity
Insensitivity (to needs, wants, fears & pain of others)
Inner demons / conflict / addictions
Archetypes of good & evil, but with divisions often blurred
Suicide -- an unforgivable sin?
Idealism / romanticism / altruism
Pathos / strong character empathy
"Having is not so pleasing a thing as wanting" (Be very careful
         what you wish for...)
Betrayal / rejection / trust
The fragility of life
Fate and defiance of fate: refusal to accept the supposedly inevitable
Struggle to overcome limitations
Love-hate relationships
Possession / obsession
Parent-child relationships / children and generations
Love vs. lust
Making choices: hard choices, wrong choices, and dealing with the consequences

Still happy to add any others y'all can think of...

Was it more or did Ger hair look much darker. Maybe My TV set????

My tape went out in the middle of the show but I thought it was a blast that
he was married to a coroner.

And my question -He is the only male that sleeps in PJ's. We see a scene in
bed and not skin.

Oh Well

I found it to be a nice performance.  But YKYBWTMFK when your first thought
is NOW he goes to bed with the doctor!

I've read the complaints about Ger in pajamas, but considering he seemed to
be a bit on the stout side I think it was a good move.

DId we hit the $10,000 mark  for the Pediatric AIDS charity?  I will be

In Blood Money I wonder if LC was trying to keep Nick dependent on him, by
keeping him financially unstable.

Subject:      Mercs

Mercs have also been known to accept payment from both sides.  (If you hire
them to do something to x then x may also hire them (and possibly pay more)
for whatever x wants done).

But Mercs are generally honorable.  If they accept a contract they will
fulfill it.

I have never hired one, but may consider it if I have time for full
participation this time.  I do plan on full participation.

Nick is a common thief (or is he more along the lines of a Cary Grant-type
thief)?  Can someone please give details on this?

Question about 'If Looks Could Kill':
Did Nat know about the vampire-blood injections the Baroness was giving
those women?

And in case anyone is keeping a tally, Nick looked like he was in a pretty
good mood at the end of "Fatal Mistake" and "If Looks Could Kill."

Nick and Horses:
In "Hunters"  LC, Janette, and Nick are all riding horses in the flashback.
This tells me that it was just coincidence that the horses spooked in LNMTA
-- also *stupidity* that the singer would have walked in front of the
rearing horses!  Can you say 'bad career move'?  I think we really have to
chalk this one up to plot devise (sorry, Ames -- hey, I think that nickname
is taking hold.  Hope you don't mind. <g>).

Riding horses:
Someone asked if BB could ride a horse: while I am quite sure that Vachon
would be able to ride, having grown up in the early 1500's, I get the
feeling that Ben is a city-boy who has probably never been on a horse in his
life!  Oh, for the opportunity to show him how!
