Wiki and Fanlore

Well-hello
Back in the late 90's - oh those halcyon days! - I was an even bigger geek than I am now.

I know, hard to believe.

Not only did I write fanfic (for a Canadian vampire cop show) I also ran an email list of about 60 people to talk about a character from its third season.  The email list/group was the Dark Perks and it has been immortalized on Fanlore here and on the Forever Knight Wiki here.  The articles quote me extensively, both from my old geocities site (reposted here) and an email exchange greerwatson conducted.

 It was a crazy, geeky time, filled with haunted mansions and headless pink bunnies.  I was just starting to write and my fic oscillated between "cute" and "unreadable."  I spent about 4 years living and breathing FK, went to two awesome parties (L.A. and Toronto) and learned to love fandom.   Anyway, I thought I'd share those links.

 Just for fun, here's an old webcomic. The show was Forever Knight, so my comics were Occasionally Knight  ;-)
 In other news, I've graduated! Have to put together my resume and head out looking for work - wish me luck :) And, hopefully, I'll be able to start updating my fics soon too.

Congratulations!!! (And good luck with the job-hunting.)

Also, of course, thanks for all the info you passed along. Straight from the bunny's mouth, so to speak. (Though, if it's a headless bunny, it presumably doesn't have a mouth. Which might create some logistical problems for the bunny's longevity—except that the headlessness probably took care of that already.)

Seriously, it wouldn't have been the same without you. Fandom, as well as the wiki articles. A wicked imagination you had—and some of your stories do actually bear re-reading, y'know, despite what you say!

Now, all we have to do is lure you back into the fold.

No problem, it was fun taking a trip down memory lane.

As for my old fics, some aren't -horrible-, but a lot of the txt. formating is, also the grammar and pacing leave a lot to be desired. I always have a vague idea that I should rewrite them, especially the longer pieces, then I get distracted by my current WIPs and leave them be.
