I agree with this one hundred percent.  I'm a member of a handful of other
fandoms, and when I join one as a newbie and say, "Where's the fic?" there
never is such a nearly comprehensive archive or fic posting list as I've found
in FK. Heck, it also seems to take forever to get an answer! "g" Since this
was the first net fandom I really got involved with, I always find that a
little frustrating -- ya'll've spoiled me! LOL So, Yay! for how pretty darn
unified we are and Yay!!! for all those of you who keep us juiced and jazzed!

but I always feel that it is one of the most organized, most united fandoms of
all. No wonder we can have the Wars, that is really something.

Subject: A Birthday...

          First of all, Hello. I've been lurking here for several months and
          I've decided to join the discussion. Actually, this post has another
          motive. Today, July 27th, is my site's one year birthday. (Insert
          shameless self-plug here:) 174 locations. 4 continents. 9 countries.
          The Forever Knight Fan Road Map. It was originally started as an
          organizational thing for the Scifi FK board, but then I began to
          think it might make a nice present for TPTB. Now, it's got a life of
          its own. A major site re-design is in the works and I feel the need
          to complicate things further, so on to the point! Basically what the
          site is is a listing and a graphical representation of where fans
          are (lovely little red dots on a map). I'm asking whether any of you
          would like to be added. I ask that if you do, you will reply to the
          following e-mail address instead of the one that this e-mail is
          from: robin_goodfellow_58@a....... Of course, feel free to stop
          by the site as well. Here's the address:

> Or the people that own the minivan are named Nick and Natalie.

Yeah, I thought of that.  But it isn't as much fun as pretending that the
*real* reason behind it is that Nick regained his mortality and he and
Nat now have a bunch of kids and drive a minivan!  :-)
I know, I'm pathetic!  But I've got to find *something* to do here in

The only fandom so far I've seen that's as well organized as FK is the Lois &
Clark fandom.  They have a main forum, and a main archive as well as a mailing
list.  They also do a fanfic awards ceremony called the Kerths.

I think the reason the other fandoms aren't as organized is because they're
huge.  I mean, take a fandom the size of Star Trek or Star Wars.  There are
fan organizations such as Starfleet, but because the fandoms are so large, fan
fiction sites are scattered across the net.  However, a lot of them seem to
specialize in certain types of fiction, eg.  Next Gen only, or Voyager only, or
DS9 only...some even concentrate on characters and relationships.

There are other FK mailing lists, but the fandom seems to have really started on
forkni-l and fkfic-l, which is great.  Not every mailing list can say they were
the beginning of a fandom.

Now, if we could only recruit more FK fans.  :)

I passed that sign today! It was in the Jordan Lake area, I think, on

Subject: Last Night

Portia wrote that Tracy's admonition to Nick, "You could have trusted me"
applies just as well to Tracy.  She could have trusted Nick with her knowledge
about Vachon.  Trouble is, much more than trust was involved.  Nick always had
to fear what "the others" might do to Tracy as a result of what she knew.  The
less she knew, the safer she was--from them, anyway.  And perhaps Tracy felt
that she had to respect Vachon's wish that she tell no one.  Ironically, Tracy
loyally keeps her secret from the one person who knew it anyway.and is killed
while backing up a partner who needed no back-up.

I wonder if Tracy would have asked to be someone else's partner if Nick had
told her what he was?  Would being the partner of the "million dollar man" have
threatened her sense of independence and competence?

Subject: I Will Repay--music

Emily Lacey asked if that was GWD's own music he was playing in "I Will Repay".
It is.  At one of the Gertherings, he explained that he'd originally written
it as a memorial to console his son for a duck that had died on their farm.  He
also played it for the first FK CD.
