I've finally figured out exactly how I want to end my virtual fourth season and, by extension, how I think the series should have ended.

Now that I know for certain the direction I'm going with it, I'll be officially beginning Season 4 next month. Episodes will "premiere" every fortnight on the AO3.

I look forward to seeing what my fellow fans think of it. :)

So today is the last day of teaching my harder summer term class and all the grading has finally been done and posted!  I will have one day to relax, then the second term of summer starts.  This portion will be an easier class for me, leaving more time to write, so I am happy about that.  I have a number ideas floating around, but about four projects will now move up into the active queue!  My goal is to get them done before the holiday season begins (or at least for one of them, to start the series).  Once the holidays get closer, I am too busy with teaching and filling online orders to be near a computer creatively until Christmas Eve.

I'll be honest: I spent a lot of time writing this post, deleting it, then writing something different.  So many opinions I should probably not type . . .

As has been noted and commented before, this movie will be very different from Forever Knight, to the point of almost wondering why they bother linking their weird crossover/fusion fanfic thing into this fandom.  I find myself so often shaking my head in shock, my brain rejecting this thing, yet some sort of morbid fascination keeps me checking in periodically to see what will happen next.  But at least they have made my least-favorite character more interesting.

So.  The first cast photo with the major characters has been released (see below).  Vachon will be played by Ralph Piotrowski; he even has a top hat (though not in this image)!  LaCroix will be played by Sean Reynolds.  Personally, I don't like the fact that they have made Nick and LaCroix appear similar in age.  For me, LaCroix needs to have had experienced more mortal years than Nick.  This just throws that dynamic completely off.  But enough of my personal rant.

If you look at the other posted images of the vampire characters, there is a fuzzy, plastic-like filter they are putting on them.  Not quite sure if the intent is to show they physically look very different than mortals, or playing off the 'vampires can't really have their picture taken and if they do they'll be indistinct' idea.  I hope that is only for these promo shots, because it will be very distracting if they intend to do that throughout their movie.

For more info about the movie, you can check out the FK Movie facebook page.

A happy birthday to Catherine Disher!  She has played many roles in TV shows, and has done extensive voice work.  In Forever Knight she was, of course, Dr Natalie Lambert.

Finished since the last reading post
Captain's Surrender, which I enjoyed all the way through; By Honor Betrayed by the same author, mostly as bedtime reading, which fell quite flat for me by lacking a sense of place and time and feeling too much like conventional romance novel; A Life in Secrets: Vera Atkins and the Lost Agents of SOE by Sarah Helm, which I found fascinating without knowing anything about her or SOE before, and struggled to put down.

Currently reading
The Virgin in the Garden by AS Byatt; Breaking the Rules by Meredith Taylor as bedtime reading—it's pretty terrible in terms of originality or interesting characters, but as it was a free Kindle novella, it's OK.

Reading next
Not sure
