More sketches (and a portrait) by freaky_nerd

I forgot to do this yesterday. Derp! Oh well, better late than never.

Here are, as promised, more of freaky_nerd's art that had been posted on the now-inactive fk_freaks comm. Be warned, one of them is not work or school safe due to partial female nudity.

Nine art pieces behind the cut. )

There'll be one more, special art post coming soon. In the meantime, check out her current stuff on Instagram.

Sketches by freaky_nerd

Yep. More of freaky_nerd's art rescued from fk_freaks. These are her sketches of Nick in various moods.

14 beautiful sketches of our hero behind the cut. )

More to come tomorrow. Again, make sure to show her some love over on Instagram.

Rescued art from fk_freaks @ LJ.

Almost done trawling the old LJ comms, and guess what? I found more art by freaky_nerd on the fk_freaks comm (which hasn't been active since 2012). There's enough to require multiple posts, so here's the first of 'em.

Seven lovely paintings under the cut. )

Show this talented gal some love by following her on Instagram.

Ger collages!

So, I rescued the pics from the LJ comm geraint_fans (which has not been active since 2015) and turned them into a neat series of collages.

Be warned: these things are HUGE.

Look behind this cut. )

Enjoy. :)

FK Spec Script on AO3 and 17 FK fanvids on YouTube

Back when FK was still on the air, an agent friend got permission from my agent to send a spec script to the show. This is it. It's never seen the light of day except for being read by Parriott. The agent mailed on Tuesday and Parriott called him two days later, on that Thursday. He liked the script but he needed Canadian writers. This was also when the characters changed. Frustrating, but exciting. Good memories. It was registered with WGA West, and copyrighted in 1995. Please enjoy.

Basic story is trying to find a missing child with a child killer on the loose. Flashback is Oxford University, 1830.

I've also got 17 of my 20 fanvids up on YouTube at:

The other 3, plus all the 17, can be downloaded at:

FK YouTube video reviews

You want fksquee? Then I've got squee for you!

Head on over to the YouTube channel Movie Nights to check out a snarky yet thoughtful four part video review of Forever Knight.

There's so much to enjoy, whether it's commentary on Nick's early 90s fashion, Captain Reese's never-ending fight with the station's watercolor, and the fact that the show loved playing the 'Let's kill Natalie's close friends and family" card. There's something for everyone. I personally LOVE that the opening title card has a drawing of Natalie's season 1 heart windbreaker. It's been immortalized for posterity now.

Part One )

Rescued art from possessive_love @ LJ.

Hey guys! Just dropping in to provide a little artsy reccing to your day. These two gorgeous sketches were made by freaky_nerd at the Nick/LC focused comm possessive_love, which has sadly been inactive since 2012.

Now, I might be a NNer, but I can still appreciate the loads of effort these had to have taken to complete.

Mine! )

I wish I could hate you... )

These days, freaky_nerd posts her art on Instagram. Click here to follow her.

As for those of you who are lurking, don't be shy! This is a place for you to post up all your FK stuff and squee with us! (And if you have any questions about whether something should be posted, just toss a quick PM into my inbox. I don't bite... well, not unless you ask nicely. :P )

Indiewire shows Forever Knight some love

Every time I internally gripe that Forever Knight doesn't get the appreciation it deserves, something comes along that pleasantly surprises me. IndieWire, noted film and television news and criticism site, has included Forever Knight in it's '24 Most Important Vampire TV Shows Ever'. 

Not only does it get ranked #6 but the write up that accompanies it is filled with praise. It laments the lack of streaming availability, praises actor chemistry, and legit shout outs the truly "badass" opening credits sequence. It's nothing we didn't already know, but it's nice to see it in the mainstream media.

Old school iconage!

So, I've been trawling the old, defunct FK comms over on LJ, and at fk_icons I found a few (wait for it) icons. Of the ones that were posted, these were the ones that don't give a broken image error.

I decided to "rescue" them by gathering them into a nice, neat little folder under my Photobucket account. Credit has been given to the appropriate icon-creators, with my little notes tacked on & each creator of multiple icons has their own subfolder. There's a grand total of 82 83 icons in the fk_icons folder.

A quick sample:

Check out the iconage here.

I'm going to continue checking the old comms to see if there's anything else worth "bringing over." Which reminds me...

If you're a creator and you decide you don't want your stuff in my public Photobucket, just let me know via PM and I'll be happy to take it down. I don't want to upset my fellow fans; I'm just trying to preserve some of the best our fandom has to offer.

Forever Knight (Recast) - Picspam

Before there was 'Twilight', before there was a 'Vampire Diaries', 'Moonlight', and 'Angel'; there was 'Forever Knight'. It has been over 17 years since the show was canceled, and it still has a place in the minds and hearts of the fans even today. For me, Nicholas Knight's eternal struggle between his lingering humanity and his vampiric nature; and his quest for redemption is as relevant, and enthralling as it was all those years ago. This picspam is an attempt to bring this beloved cult series into the 21st century. When I imagine the characters (despite canon killing a good portion of these characters off) living in present day Toronto or aboard in some far away land--I admittedly think of the Dreamcast instead of the orignal cast.

The picspam is here @ my journal
