The Explanation * The Factions * The Wars


The FKFIC/FORKNI-L factions were formed when FORKNI-L listmember Sharon 'Scottie' Scott made the mistake of mentioning her frog phobia on the mailing list. As it was during the 18-month hiatus between seasons, two list members, whose favorite character was/is LaCroix, apparently got bored and independently sent Scottie some frog memorabilia (stuffed toys, cards, etc.) Scottie informed both of them that they were both so mean that they had to be cousins, and related to LaCroix.

The other listmembers who appreciated LaCroix immediately began calling themselves Cousins, and referring to LaCroix as Uncle (a practice now habitually followed by most listmembers, regardless of faction. Even Knighties.)

Shortly after the 'frog attack', Scottie wrote a short story in which she received a suspicious-looking letter in the mail, and called Nick Knight to come check it out for her. And the battle was on. The post quickly grew into a round-robin short story, with most members of the fiction list contributing, and banding together into factions supporting their favorite characters. This, in turn, became the first war.

Within the confines of the story/war, list members role-play themselves, interacting with and occasionally 'attacking' the characters of the Forever Knight universe, not to mention each other. Frequently. (The more memorable attacks have included the destruction of hard drives, tons of tuna, an eight-foot chocolate bunny, the kidnapped live bunny, Sandra Grey drunk in a wine celler with LaCroix, theft of socks, the notorious car bomb, and the multiple redecoratings of Nick's loft and The Raven.) Since then, full-scale wars have broken out seven times, and even the Highlander fen have gotten into the game, with a war on HLFIC-L.

The factions tend towards the example of the character they follow; i.e. don't turn your back on a Cousin, Ravenettes have the best fashion sense, NatPackers have no sense of self-preservation, Knighties won't attack, they only retaliate. (NOTE: Knightie definition of 'attack' is flexible, subject to change :)).
