author’s note: Happy Canada Day! This is a tiny excerpt from a much, much larger story I started back in 2008 or so. All you gotta know is that Nick's human. Don't ask me how. It just came about. Maybe he stumbled upon a four leaf clover or a Jinn or something.

summary: Nick and Natalie celebrate Canada Day...sort of

The air outside is warm and the view of the harbor from the roof of his building is unobstructed. Recently building contractors have been sniffing around looking for prime real estate to develop and for the moment the neighborhood is devoid of construction cranes and makeshift protected sidewalks. Now if only Natalie would decide to grace him with her presence. She’s on night shift rotation again and Nick is hoping that she’s able to trade off the rest of her shift before tonight’s festivities begin.

The sound of the garage opening down below announces Natalie’s arrival home as Nick takes another sip from his beer. Wine just doesn’t seem appropriate for a summer night outside with the woman he loves and a Canada Day light show compliments of the city of Toronto. It’ll only be a matter of minutes before she finds his note downstairs alerting her to his whereabouts. The minutes tick by slowly for Nick before the rooftop door finally opens and she emerges still dressed from work but also bearing a bowl of popcorn.

“You made it,” Nick says, stating the obvious.

What Would Happen )

Ok so checks calendar...yep mid way through January, thought so. Looks at fic recs...yep Christmas fic and Yuletide fic, thought so.

So what! Good fic is never out of season.







abby82: (Whoa! CD in Vindicator)
I've already seen two livejournals jumping for joy at the arrival of a new fic over at fkfic-l so I thought I'd throw in my own squeeing. I was at work this morning checking my email and when I went to refresh the page there it was, "Revenge" by Ell Hase. Apparently the discusion at forkni-l about where the characters would be now inspired her to dust off an unfinished fic and post. Forever Knight fandom I love you. What other little nuggets are you hiding?



A while back I wrote up a little something for [personal profile] bop_radar's character study challenge. There were several Forever Knight prompts and so I settled on one that I felt would be a challenge. A Tracy prompt on Nick that needless to say I didn't get to finish in time for the deadline. I told myself it would be something short and something akin to a writing exercise but unfortunately it's ended up a little longer than I'd planned. Length wise it's about as long as my first Forever Knight story The Ease of Friendship but I'm still ironing a few things out. Anyway, as the deadline approached and my desire to contribute something to the wonderful challenge boppy had put together I threw together a short ficlet on a different prompt: Nick Knight--Redemption. It doesn't entirely work and other then the prompt list for the challenge it hasn't appeared anywhere else but I figure what the Hell. It explores Nick's desire for redemption but at the same time his fear of redemption. I sometimes wondered if Nick wasn't sabotaging his own attempts at mortality because he's afraid of what he'll have to confront when he meets his maker. In season 2's "Near Death" he didn't like hearing from the guide that despite the good deeds he's done through the centuries the state of his soul is less than stellar. Oh well, maybe one of these days I'll go back and try to fix it or simply leave it as an example of what can happen when you try to write some introspective stuff in 30 minutes. This is my quickie Forever Knight ficlet now titled Catch-22.


abby82: (Default)
My tv viewing has been chopped in half now because DirecTV doesn't carry all the local channels. I no longer have NBC (bye bye Journeyman) and CW (adios Smallville, Supernatural, and Gossip Girl) so I'm drowning my sorrows by reading fic. I've tried watching on youtube and on the network video players but it's just not the same.

But now on to the recs and its theme day boys and girls:


Smallville recs (futurefic) )

The prose is wonderful, as is the imagery. I can't decide what snapshot is my favorite because they're all perfect but the last one breaks my heart.  ::hugs Lex::


"First Against the Wall" by

[personal profile] extrasolar

extrasolar has a wonderful knack for sucking you into the story.  This WIP story picks up two years after the events currently unfolding in season 7 just after Lois has broken the Belle Reve story. The level of antagonism that is present in the DP newsroom falls in line nicely with some of the comments that have been going around SV fandom concerning Lois and her entrance into the DP, namely that she's a no talent bimbo who was handed a job based on her looks. Not true says I but I like that the Lois naysayers in the story have to swallow their words in the face of her genuinely kickass work as a journalist.


"In Reverse" by

[personal profile] thedeadparrot

Lois, Clark, Superman, secret identities, and Clois flirting all wrapped up in this futurefic story. Kudos for the use of the Clark travels the world storyline from Superman:Birthright. If Smallville goes this route rather than the Clark trains in the Fortress of Solitude for years like in the Richard Donner films I will be one happy fan.

And for a rec withing a rec if you're a member of Divine Intervention do a search for "Logic Will Break Your Heart" in the serial fanfiction section. It's Clois futurefic with strong parallels to John Le Carre's The Constant Gardener. Only 5 parts to this WIP were ever posted and from what I can see only DI received it. It's in none of parrot's websites. It might have been abandoned but what was written set up what I'm sure would have been an exciting story.


"The Elevator Factor" by mykella.

Lois, Clark, and the privacy of an elevator ride. This one's hot and it leaves you wanting more.


 "When First We Met" by Smallvillian.

I'm gonna cheat and break from the futurefic theme with this story which unfolds the past rather than the future.

I stumbled upon this story accidentally and boy am I glad I did. The love story between Jonathan and Martha has never been more real to me then in this story. It saddens me that this story has apparently been abandoned but 19 chapters does a wonderful job of exploring the obstacles that a small town guy from Smallville and a city girl from Metropolis face and eventually overcome.



Forever Knight (Dark NN or Nat as a vamp) )Crossover fic with Angel which I never saw but previous knowledge wasn't necessary. I like the visual of Nick and Nat happy and in love even if they're both vampires. Yay that Natalie is apparently letting her feminine and sexy side out with Nick. Also 3rd POV fics are a guilty pleasure of mine so that's another thing this fic has going for it. The differences in vampires in Whedonverse and Forever Knight was also nicely handled.

"For I Have Sinned/Love You to Death" by imajiru

Another solid story by imajiru. I'm sure you can tell I'm a fan. This story gives Nick his mortality and then jerks it away in one of the cruelest ways possible--Natalie. What follows takes the reader down a path that requires Nick and Natalie to come to terms with the decisions they make and their consequences. Natalie will feel Nick's wrath and she will suffer because of it. The new existence they find each other in over the years is marked with detachment, bouts of comfort, and eventual emotional distance. Nick's love of all things mortal manifests once more and it's a bitter pill to swallow that Natalie can no longer be on the receiving end of that reverence. LaCroix figures prominently in the second story as a concerned father figure who only wants the best for his "children".

"Further to Fall" by

[profile] wiliqueen

For an early season 1 story the characterizations are spot on. That's a testament to both the quality of the writer and the writers on the show. Paul makes an interesting foil from Nick's past and the flashback scene with LaCroix choosing to punish Janette because of Nick's disobedience is nicely done. And although not a romantic relationship the Nick/Nat factor was high and firmly based on their friendship and need for each other.

"Last Minutes" by Amy R.

This one is hot off the presses. It recently popped up in the my inbox compliments of FKFIC-L and Amy as usual doesn't disappoint. With this story she asks the question what kind of existence would Natalie have if she was forced to face eternity alone without Nick, knowing that she can't follow him. This fic has a really great ironic twist in that the one thing that made it possible for Natalie to be allowed into Nick's vampire world as a spectator is the one thing that traps her in it forever. Over a decade since FK went off the air and wonderful fic is still being produced. Kudos!

abby82: (Nick & Nat)

So back in March 2007 I bought the first and second seasons of Forever Knight as part of Deep Discount DVD's buy one get one free sale. I was majorly obsessed with FK back in the mid 90s. I started watching in syndication just in time to see the final three episodes. Needless to say I didn't know at the time that it was the series finale and was devastated. Not the final episode of Quantum Leap devastated but I enjoyed what I'd seen and I wanted more. Flashforward a couple of months later and Sci-Fi channel picks up FK and begins to air the first and second season which at that point I had yet to see. Like a good little fangirl in training I pleaded with the parental figures to let me record FK in their room since that was where the satellite box was located. I meticulously kept records of the episodes and watched and rewatched my favorite scenes. Well like all things I eventually went on to other things (The X-Files) and my once precious FK recordings were relegated to the back of my closet. Years went by and nary a thought was spent on the show about an 800 year old, vintage Caddy driving vampire with aspirations to join the living until the purchase of the DVD sets.

I was absolutely delighted to discover that FK was just as enjoyable as I'd found it almost a decade ago. I marathoned through the sets and one night I woke up with a story idea in my head. I'd never planned to write FK fic but I committed everything to paper just in case. I played around with the story and aside from some polishing up and some minor tweaking the following story is pretty much as written from that night.
