I read this and did the Vachon Blink for several seconds before I understood.
Santy is a night person.  The rabbit does mornings.  Naturally, our vampires
would be getting ready for bed by the time ol' hoppity came around.  Unless
Bunnicula took over the job.  But that is a literary character.

...Or... some vampire didn't make it home in time and the bunny chose the
bloodsucker's emergency hidey hole to try to stash some eggs in.

the wascally wandal down.  Hehehehe.]

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone has this commercial of FK?? If
so, Can someone dub me a copy or make a AVI Movie Clip, please? Thanks a
bunch!!! :)

Subject: Re: Nigel Bennett Update

Mickey kindly wrote to tell us about Mr. Bennett's appearance in "Scrooge"
at the Neptune Theatre in Halifax.

Having gone up there to see "Hamlet" this year, I urge anyone who can go to
make the trip.  The theater is wonderful and the personnel are terrific.
And it goes without saying, of course, that Mr. Bennett is magnificent on
stage.  And if the cast of "Hamlet" is any indication the rest of Canada's
actors and actresses are phenomenal as well.

Having said all that, I was wondering if someone with connections to the
Neptune Theatre might be willing to ask if they'll consider taping one of
the performances for sale as a fund raiser for the theater.  Those of us who
can't get up there for the real thing would certainly be interested in
having a copy.  I'm sure people who *do* go up would also like to have that
kind of souvenir.

I'm sure there are all kinds of copyright issues along with a bunch of other
problems, but I just thought it would be an interesting idea to suggest.

(who wishes it made sense to produce "Scrooge" in July:-))

Subject: FODs and Beta Readers -- oh, my!

Two things:

FIRST, does anyone have the URL for the FODs (Friends of Don Schanke) website??

SECOND, is anyone out there interested in being a beta-reader for FK fanfic?

I'm trying to put together a list of names which can be referenced by FK fanfic

If you are interested, please write me OFF-LIST.

I will need your name, e-mail, preferences if any (characters/genre),
restrictions if any (no slash/no adult/etc.), and any relevant qualifications
(college/job/etc.) or "experience" you've had as a beta reader.  Plus, if you
can write a one or two sentence description of your beta-reading style to help
writers choose who might work best for them.

You, of course, will be under NO obligation to beta-read any story you do not
want to!

Thank you much,

Bonnie <callalily@l.......>

If anyone is interested, an email based role-playing game that combines
Forever Knight with Buffy the Vampire Slayer has just started.  You can
read about it and join up at -
With more info about the game at -

The only FK characters taken so far are Nick, Natalie and LaCroix.  The
rest are still open - as are some Buffy characters.

        The real question is do you drive as badly as Nick does when
remembering things?  Good thing he is immortal or he would have
killed himself years ago.

Subject: LaCroix question


After reading a lot of fictions, I mostly experienced LaCroix in them as a
(may be not the ideal) father figure, his deeds - even the most cruels - can
be justified with his anxiety for Nicholas. Do you know fictions with LaCroix
beeing cruel, tormenting Nick or hurting others without having this
justification? Did we see him hurting someone without any "pedagogical"
ulterior motive in the series?

Dear Bonnie,

I wrote to you off list, volunteering my skills as a beta reader, but your
link at the bottom of your posting didn't work.  The email came back
undeliverable.  Please let my know how to send you the information.

Subject: Music video update

"Once Upon A Dream", along with vids by a couple other folks, can now be
found in RealPlayer form on this page:


Astonishingly smaller file size, but unavoidable loss of quality; so the
QuickTime file will continue to reside in the space generously provided
by Stephanie, Goddess of the FTP Archive, for the benefit of those
willing to deal with a 30MB download.

It's sheer coincidence that all the other completed vids on the page are
Buffy and/or Angel; these just happen to be the ones that have been
finished by the digital-editing segment of Apocalypse West.  I'm hoping
to be able to get copies of the ones made by the mistresses of
VCRs-and-stopwatch to digitize and add in the foreseeable future.  All
together, a broad range of fandoms should eventually be represented.
We're pretty omnivorous.  ;-)

More FK vids are in various stages of development by several Horsechicks
(including myself, although the one I'm currently actively working on is
Farscape); they and other new vids will be added as they become available.

Well-earned plug for my comrades-in-lunacy: Dianne and Lizbet have been
at this longer than I have, and are both way better at it, so check out
their stuff if you're at all Buffy-inclined.  (I figure there are a few
of those here...)  In particular, "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)"
is one of the funniest things I've seen in ages; and "Uninvited" is both
technically brilliant and emotionally devastating.  I'm not particularly
a B/A 'shipper, but it nails me every time.  (Oh, and both of Lizbet's
vids are currently listed on beta status because she's been having
resolution problems with the full-size output, but that's not an issue
at this size.)
