Subject: Re: Olympic Sports Revisited
You know, after a week of watching The Games, I'm sure the mortal
characters would each have their favorite sports, but I can't imagine the
vampires would care a hoot about any of them except possibly to place a bet.
After all, beyond the strength and grace and control, fundamentally these
sports are all about Gravity (yes, even figure skating :-)... even Ballet
for that matter), and that might make them of little interest to beings
immune to that force. They're all naturally (or unnaturally) stronger and
faster than all of us and they can fly for heaven's sake. What is ski
jumping to them? Take away the defiance of gravity and the element of
risk, the ooh and ahhh factor, and figure skating becomes kind of clumsier
ice dancing, and even that is a sport Janette might glance at and sneer.
But it's hard to imagine LaCroix wasting the sneer time on any of it,
although the judging scandals might amuse him.
Of course I imagine The Olympics would just make Nick feel how separate he
is from Humanity. He does like Baseball though, but Baseball is a game and
that's another thing entirely.

I have no idea what to use for a preface so the listserv doesn't tell me
it's sent this before and refuse to put it on the list. At least, I have
ideas but figure they'd run into filters. :) So, I'll simply say that these
rules won't allow you to copy anything illegally, change your reception on
anything, or get you out of debt. They will, however, let the list run
If you need a hand or have any questions please don't hesitate to
contact Don Fasig <Argent@e.......> or Lisa McDavid

List digests are archived at:
1. No flames on list. FLAMERS MAY BE SET NOPOST. THE NOPOST
MAY BE PERMANENT.
2. Please don't quote more than four lines of a previous post in replying.
If you have more than one point to answer, then you may quote the
relevant four lines for that point also.
3. Limit sigs to 6 lines. This includes all information, decoration
quotations and blank lines. Your name and address count as part of
the six. If you sign your name on a separate line above the body of text,
your name and the blank line or lines between count as part of the six
line limit. If you have one of those services that insists on putting an
advertising tag on the end of posts, don't worry. We realize you can't
control that and it doesn't count as part of your sig.
4. Please don't send to the whole list when you are only talking to the
person who wrote the post you are answering.
5. Advertising on list is on a case by case basis. Please consult the
listowners, Lisa McDavid, <mclisa@m.......> or Don Fasig,
<Argent@e.......> for permission.
6. This list is for the discussion of Forever Knight. Cast, crew, staff
and producers in connection with what they're doing now or have done in the
past are ok. So are list members' FK- fannish activities and
arrangements to meet. Cons should only be announced on Forkni-l if someone
from the show is appearing, or if you're going to be there. Non-FK vampires,
or vampires in general, are _NOT_ ok. Vampyres@t....... does that.
McLisa can tell you how to subscribe.
7. Off-topic posts are _NOT_ allowed, no matter what they are about or how
urgent the warning may appear. If you have an off-topic post which you
think should appear on the list, ask one of the owners for permission.
8. The private lives of the cast are not a discussion topic. Occasionally
one of the fan club presidents will make an announcement, but other
than that, we leave the cast their privacy.
9. Only fan club presidents or other designated spokespeople may
make announcements of future projects for FK cast, crew and staff,
before said projects have been released or written about in the media.
10. No role-playing on Forkni-l. This includes no character names as
pseudonyms or posing as a character.
11. Each subscriber is limited to five posts per day on Forkni-l.
