Being a Cousin, I do not barter with fate to deliver to me what I desire.

Being a Cousin, I make what I want to happen where and when I can and
acknowledge my limits when I can't.


As a celebratory gesture, when the first episode of the fourth season airs
I *will* find a merchant who can supply all of us with swordpins at an
affordable price. Even if I have to have them made myself.

Maybe we can even mail them to the providers of our fourth season as a
token of our appreciation.

How does that sound?

Hi, everyone!

Sorry if this is posted twice but I had a feeling that it didn't post the
first time around.

I just thought you guys might want to see this.  When Ms. Norat-Phillips
responded to Jane S.'s letter, she didn't really answer the question
about a 4th season so I gave it a try.  I think she answered the question
this time, but I'm not really sure if I'm interpretating it properly.
I think she's saying that WKBW wants to air a fourth season, but she
doesn't really come right out and say it.  Her answer was a bit ambiguous.

Anyways, the respnse to my letter is below.  My comments are in the sqaure
brackets.  Oh! I wrote back asking her to *ask* for it at NATPE.  Hope she

>Dear Connie,
Thanks for your recent letter. There is a strong e-mail campaign going for
Forever Knight. Yours is the twelfth communication I've had this week.
[That's good to know!  How about we make it even stronger? :-)]

Unfortunately I don't hold out much hope for this show. [Uh oh!] As you
know we have a contractual agreement to carry Forever Kight until the end
of August [That means the rest of the 3rd season, at least] and we are
planning to honor that commitment as long as the show is delivered. [I'm
interpreting this as they want to keep airing FK.  Does this mean
a 4th season as well...what do you think?]  Hiwever, if there are no
original episodes being produced I'm sure Columbia will not offer it out
again in syndication.

Hope the fans of Forever Knight find something else they enjoy watching on
NewsChannel 7. [I don't want something else!]

Feel free to share you ideas and opinions with us.

Remember, we need $3300 for the bags, plus second-day shipping costs.  We'll
be shipping 10 35 lb boxes (1000 bags each), so this will *not* be an

'ello there,
Here in Houston my WB 39 *does* show FK, right after Highlander (they even
put their little logo on the bottom right corner which tends to make me mad).
 I'm wondering, is there anywhere else in the country that a local WB network
shows FK?

Subject: URGENT: Spreading the Word

Spreading the Word

The next two weeks, leading up to and through NATPE, are a critical
time in our efforts to convince TriStar to renew Forever Knight for a
fourth season.  I know we're all tired and busy, we all feel like we've
*done our bit*, but it is VITAL that we keep the pressure on for
another two weeks at least.

The most important thing we can do at this point is GET THE WORD OUT.
Each of us cares deeply about Forever Knight, but each of us is only
one person.  We, as individuals, can only do so much.  Writing letters
is important, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is letting other interested
people know what is happening with Forever Knight and trying to involve
them in the process.

We are now, I believe, doing a fine job of letting the Internet
community know what is going on. We now have liasons for AOL, Prodigy
and Compuserve, as well as all remotely related newsgroups, and links
to the SOS FK website from practically everywhere including virtually
all the search engines.  BUT there is a larger world out there, beyond
the Internet, and we MUST get our message out to them.  IMMEDIATELY.

Suppose, instead of writing another letter, you create a text flyer or
ask someone on the list for one of the Save FK flyers that have been
created.  You post that flyer at your university bulletin board.  You
take that flyer to your local comics or gaming store.  Perhaps you even
print up some flyers and leave them at your Barnes & Noble monthly
science fiction club meeting.  Perhaps 50 interested people find out
this way who otherwise might not have known.  Perhaps ten of them are
motivated to write letters, or contribute to the charity drive, or call
their friends and let them know.  Because of your one afternoon's
effort, and how it can multiply, perhaps several thousand people will
find out what we are doing and a few dozen will join the cause.
Multiply that by several hundred of us, all doing the same thing, and
we are LEGION!

We KNOW there are lots and lots of unidentified Forever Knight fans out
there.  (I found out, to my surprise this past weekend, that one of my
inlaws is one of those fans!)  We must find them, show them to the
powers at TriStar, so they know Forever Knight is worth continuing.

None of us are alone.  Each one of us lives in a town, in a city, at a
university.  We have friends and family.  Some of us have access to
public bulletin boards (not the virtual kind).  Many of us work in
offices.  Most of us live in communities with comic book and gaming
stores, with local science fiction clubs.  Many are at universities,
which often have science fiction and/or fantasy clubs, as well as
boards for students to post items of interest.  Many of us live in
cities with science fiction stores like Forbidden Planet and Jim
Hanley's universe, The Science Fiction Bookstore, and numerous other
locations which are logical sources of Forever Knight fans.
We need to hit these places.  Put up posters, flyers, info about FK
APPRECIATION WEEK and how they can participate.  Leave piles of flyers
if the stores permit it.  If you know someone with a science fiction or
vampire type club, ask them if they will notify their membership.

Has anyone contacted Jerry Ohlinger, asked to leave flyers at his
place?  Has anyone contacted Special Services, which distributes
Forever Knight merchandise by mailing list, and asked if they will
apprise their customers of what is going on?

Some of us are attending conventions this weekend.  Some of us are
throwing Forever Knight parties.  Those conventions and parties MUST be
places where the word is spread, where SAVE FK activities take place.
Particularly this Sunday, the first day of FK APPRECIATION WEEK, which
is TriStar/SONY appreciation day.  THERE IS NOT A SINGLE PERSON ON THIS
movie.  Buy a SONY videotape. RENT a SONY/TriStar movie.  And tell your
friends/family to do the same.  THEN, send your receipts to Lana
Soward's PO BOX, so we can send them all, en masse, to Tri/Star, so
they know we're out here.  If they get five receipts, they're not going
to care.  IF THEY GET 500 receipts, they might perk up their ears.  If,
by some miracle, they got 5000 receipts, they'd jump to attention.
Miracle, I say, but if each one of us passes the word to only a handful
of people, it COULD happen.

IT IS ESSENTIAL that each of us is thinking, all the time, of how they
can help spread the word and garner more support for our efforts.  I
can think of no worse fate than that we get the publicity we crave from
the media only to see the whole thing fall flat because no more than
five or ten of us actually participate in anything.

Together, we CAN do this thing!

There is only one thing to be done.  In addition, of course, to the
prodigious amount of fanfic you must write, you must admit in public a
facet of yourself that has long been evident in your fan fiction.

Change your affiliation.  (Again?  I can't keep track -- last I heard you
were still The Illustrated Cousin but you had become a Merc.)

Admit your true loyalties.  Become a Knightie.  Join us!  Angst over your
failure to overcome your addiction!  Think about it -- Nick continues to
indulge his addiction (blood) but has really juicy nightmares about it
all the time & often wakes up sweating blood.  Gotta love it!

Looking forward to seeing you at Nick's loft in the next War!  (Somehow the
idea of Jamie MR sleeping in the loft with a crowd of Knighties camped

Wow.  Terrific!  I can imagine a stampede of Cousins taking advantage of
this offer.  I don't suppose that Knighties are allowed to wear them.
What if I promise to feel guilty while I wear it?

You should send one to Nigel, since rumor has it that the reason he
doesn't wear one on the show anymore is that the old one disappeared at
some point.  I find this very, very sad.

I'm new to the mailing list, so this is my formal greeting.


First I wish to say "Bravo" to the person who made the Stuart Smily
comment about Tracy.  My girlfriend and I call her "Tracy, girl cop
hostage".  Needless to say I think she's usless, tall, but usless.

By the way,
HI MISS ANJI!  I'M HERE!  Took me damn long enough.  When you wanna

Once again, hello to the list.

Subject: An idea about program directors

Why not take a program director to lunch or dinner?  In business we take
people to lunch for marketing purposes, and we're certainly marketing FK.
Not just one person, but several FK fans together so it wouldn't seem like a
single fanatical fan?  I think people react better if you meet them on a face
to face basis -- we've been doing lots of phone calls and letters, but maybe
a direct "confrontation" would prove worthwhile.  Let them see we're average
people.  Ask how the system works (even if you know, pretend you don't so
they can talk about themselves and their job).  Just a thought.  Maybe there
isn't enough time before NATPE?  Even if a program director wasn't open to
lunch, it might not be a bad idea to make an appointment and drop in for a
visit, just to say hello and express in person your happiness at having FK
air on their station.  That would be an opportunity to really emphasize the
need to *ask* for FK at NATPE.  Couldn't hurt.

Got to close down.  I'm off to Seattle in the morning and its almost
midnight!  Pains me to go nomail even for a few days!  Think I'll digest
Forkni-L and hope its not too much for my mailbox to eat for 3-1/2 days.

Keep going gang.  I'm proud of you all!  I'll be writing postcards on the
flight; will fax TriSTar next week; and I even passed out a "please help us
write a few letters" to people at work (this is a very conservative office
and its not easy to find FK watchers there -- however, several people
promised to do a few letters; better than nothing).

I stopped by the Compuserve FK Chat (SF Media 2--The raven, every Wednesdays
night at 9).  Nice people.  Passed on some info.  Some there have been
writing their letters and making their donations.

They're also supposedly arranging a mult-guest conference for FK for some
time in the near future.

If I recall my High School French class correctly, this is still a commonly
used romantic idiom in France ("mon petit chou", or something like that).
 Although Nick is originally French, I can't quite visualize him using that
phrase.  Before we condemn the French for naming their loved ones after
vegetables, remember that many regional Americans call their beloveds
"punkin".  I'm not sure why that's considered acceptable, when you can't
really call your one-and-only "zucchini", "acorn squash" or "Kohlrabi".

Well, maybe if you're Neelix...

Subject: flyers, flyers everywhere

I'm planning on copying lots o' flyers at work tomorrow ("America Supports
FK!" <g>) to distribute around book stores, libraries, music stores, game
stores, & various public places.  To whomever did the logo in pict. format,
and the folks who have done the flyer text, BRAVO!!!!  My official Save FK
flyers look GREAT thanks to you guys.

I wanted to mention one small change I made, based on the idea that the
easier you can make things for people, the more likely they'll do what you
want 'em to:  Under the local affiliate part, I substituted our area
station's address, phone and fax numbers, and the name of the programming
manager for the generic bit about "calling your local station."

Oh--Wrigley's was the first sponsor to reply to my letters, and they were
*so* nice.  Excerpt from Wrigley-person: "...as a long-standing policy, we
have always done whatever we can to make sure our commercials are placed in
or adjacent to television programs that offer high-quality entertainment, so
we're glad to know 'Forever Knight' is a favorite with you... we've received
quite a few letters like yours, and wish you all the best in your efforts to
keep this show on the air."

Happy crusade!

True, but who better to torment and drive that angst home than dear Uncle.
 I'd write it myself if I felt competent enough to, but one episode and a few
caught endings over the years does not an expert make.  But I'll get there.

Subject: FK: USA SCHEDULE 1/12-30

Hello everyone,

With all this talk of FK & USA, I went through my monthly cable guide
and I found the following days & times that FK will be showing.

1/19 FRIDAY: 1:10a-2:10a: ???? [no title given]
1/22 MONDAY: 10p-11p: STRINGS
1/26 FRIDAY:  1a-2a: STRINGS
1/29 MONDAY: 10p-11p: FEVER

Hopefully, they won't be switching the schedule around, but it's hard to
say. Between FK & HL, my poor VCR is doing over time. [I'll be so glad
when I get the collection caught up. Never put off tomorrow what you can
do today. Sorry....it's the cold medication talking.] For all of you
that are caught in the cold freeze of '96 KEEP WARM & for all of you
that are caught in the heat wave of '96 KEEP COOL!!

PS] What episode will Debra Duchene [aka: Janette] be in?

Cheers from you wacky fellow Knightie,
