KnightWalker: April's Forever Knight Fanfiction (at http://www.foreverknight.org/KnightWalker/Pages/kwindex.html) is April French's website for her Forever Knight writing.

Site DesignEdit

The current website consists of a main index page with auxiliary pages containing fan fiction and essays. All share a common background graphic from Luminescence Grab'n'Go Graphics, in black with a leftside border repeating the image of a red shield bearing a golden gryphon. A double-headed spear divider is used throughout.

The site has a title banner created by Kristin Harris, colour-coordinated to the red/black of the background. It shows Nick, with Janette's eyes behind the title, which is in Gothic lettering. An elongated sword makes the "I" of "KnightWalker".

Site ContentsEdit

The current version of KnightWalker contains an archive of fan fiction by April, and several essays (one by Kristin Harris), all indexed off the main page.

In addition, there is a page of "60 Signs That You Are Addicted to ~Forever Knight~" containing a list of exaggerated signs of ardent fannishness.

Stories Archived on KnightWalkerEdit

In revising the site, April decided to remove a number of her early stories which she felt did not come up to her current writing standards.


I've removed many stories that I felt were sub-par, even for when I wrote them. Therefore, what remains may be justly considered the best of the FK fanfic that I've produced (merciful gods)

She also removed her popular Sons of Lilith series. Only the following stories are currently archived on the KnightWalker website:

Site HistoryEdit

The KnightWalker website was originally on GeoCities (at http://www.geocities.com/knightwalker1228/index.html). It was first recorded by the Internet Archive on 17 June 2004, and the counter on the index page indicates that the site had been started that January. Over the next couple of years, the site was occasionally recorded again. However, this was never more than partly done; and almost all the internal pages are missing from the archived copy.

The site was not recorded between 1 December 2006 and 9 August 2009. However, copies do exist of the site as it existed after the announcement that GeoCities was about to close. It is clear from the update section at the top of the index page that, at some point in 2007, April decided to revise her site. However, she then abandoned it in mid-revision, leaving most of the internal pages missing.

Original KnightWalker siteEdit

The index page of the KnightWalker website has always looked very similar. However, other graphics appear on some of the internal pages of the original version of the site, including additional banners by Kristin Harris, used as links.

The site had seven major subsections, each with its own index: Series Fiction, Other Stories, Poems, Nonfiction, Pictures, Links, and Other Things. Not all of these sections are available on the Wayback Machine. However:

Comments on the guestbook include:


Wonderful site. Love your stories!! Cant wait to read FK SoL Season Two *hint hint* Keep on writing! — Allie


Youve excellent stories - they really should count these toward your university degree! — Ell Hase


Archived Site on GeoCities.wsEdit

The last edition of the GeoCities KnightWalker site has been archived on GeoCities.ws.

This edition included a rec list of Forever Knight stories, and a pair of fill-in-the-blank games created by April. In one, the player fills out a form as if a character in April's Sons of Lilith series. In the other, the player fills out a form as if a vampire from Forever Knight.

April intended to include a list of birthday stories written for her by other people. However, this was never linked in.

Although the website includes the entire essay section, the revision of the various fiction and poetry sections was barely started. Only the index page for "standalone" stories is on the site; and even that was abandoned half-finished. However, it does indicate that April intended the KnightWalker site to include, among other fan fiction, the following stories (none of which had yet been linked in):

It will be noted that this list includes some stories that are not included in the current edition of the KnightWalker website. In addition, the site was intended to contain April's series fiction, crossovers, and songfic, each linked off its own separate index page.

The last update to the site was apparently made 19 November 2007; and KnightWalker remained in an unfinished state until GeoCities went down in October 2009.

Current WebsiteEdit

In 2009, Yahoo! decided to delete all GeoCities websites. At April's request, she had the opportunity to completely revise the site yet again before it was moved to its current location in the Forever Knight Website Archive.
