This resulted in glancing back through my Works list on AO3, just to boggle at how different the numbers are. Which resulted recently in my realizing that one of my offerings in the very first fkficfest took place on a specific date exactly one hundred years ago today.
That happened somewhat by chance, in the course of my looking for a historical touchstone for placing Nick, LaCroix, and Janette in San Francisco in 1916, as specified by the "Cherry Blossoms" script directions. It turned out that, on July 22 of that year, the city held a "Preparedness Day" parade in the run up to the U.S. entering World War I. It remains unknown who planted the bomb that killed 10 and injured 40 during that parade.
In my "July 22, 1916," this event is a backdrop to Nick's personal turmoil. Still, it seems only appropriate to repost the link today, on the anniversary of something that, particularly in light of some of the more frightening aspects of our world today, ought to be better known.
