(The option to read chapters as separate TXT files ended June 14, 2003. However, the consolidated HTML file now contains a convenient anchor -- internal link/bookmark -- for each individual chapter.)
The Forever Knight television series characters were created by James Parriot and Barney Cohen, are owned by the Sony Corporation, and periodically appear on the SciFi Channel; no infringement is intended. Please support Sony and SciFi in all their Forever Knight endeavors!
All characters and situations depicted in this fantasy-fiction piece are entirely fictional. Any resemblance to real people or experiences is purely coincidental. (In case you wondered, vampire do not exist.)
This story draws especially on the characters and situations of "Be My Valentine" by Diane Cary and "Ashes to Ashes" by Phil Bedard and Larry Lalonde. References to almost every Forever Knight episode occur somewhere in the text. The direct quotations from BMV are noted in the second chapter.
My sincere appreciation goes to those friends who put up with this story as I wrote it all through 1998. Some started with me and had to drop away; others came in part-way through; one hung on throughout. They spotted errors, debated canon, listened to me ramble, watched episodes they hate to check my context, and, indispensably, they encouraged me. Thank you, all: Bonnie, Lisa, Shelley, Cynthia and Jane. I could not have done it without you. Any remaining errors are completely my own.
Credit and thanks for the French and Latin spoken in this story go to Cynthia. Any errors are my own; I speak neither French nor Latin.
Please do not archive, post or otherwise distribute this story in any manner without the author's permission. If you wish permission, please ask. I wrote this story through 1998, posted it to fkfic-l in December of that year, and placed it on this website in May of 1999. Between December and May, it appeared in the Light Cousin Fiction Archive.
Thank you for reading! Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated. Please write to me.
