About "Forbidden Love"
"Forbidden Love ," is the title of the "Be My Valentine" fanlisting, because it describes the relationship between a vampire and a mortal, particularly Nick and Natalie. It shows how dangerous it is for them to express their feelings and how easily the vampire can kill the mortal, even out of love. In it, a killer is using Valentine's Day to draw in and trap his victims. Nick understands how love is hard enough to find and realizes how horrible it would be to lose it. He then determines what a woman wants - a man who is not afraid to express his love and reveals his feelings to Natalie. Natalie is surprised and very excited about Nick's sudden romantic gestures and returns her feelings right back to him. Distracted by his new and stronger relationship with Natalie, Nick does not notice LaCroix spying on him and plotting to make Nick pay an old debt. LaCroix tricks Natalie into going out on a date with him and draws her into his spell. He gets her to reveal her true feelings about Nick and slowly comes closer and closer to sinking his fangs into her neck. Nick comes to the restaurant just in time to stop LaCroix from destroying his most precious mortal love and friend. They fight briefly and LaCroix reminds Nick of his debt to pay. He must destroy the mortal that he loves or be killed himself. Nick grabs Natalie and vamps out, preparing to bite her for LaCroix. However, before it's too late, LaCroix comes to the conclusion that Nick does not really love her. He'd rather see her die than take her mortality away. LaCroix leaves a very relieved Nick behind. Later, we see that Natalie has forgotten every thing about that Valentine's Day, including Nick showing his feelings for her...
In the flashbacks, Brabant - 1228-1230, Nick has returned home to see his mother and sister one final time. LaCroix and Janette travel with him, annoyed about their sunburns. LaCroix falls in love with Nick's sister, Fleur, and desires to bring her across to join him forever in eternity. Shocked that LaCroix can love, Nick saves Fleur from an eternity of darkness. He tells LaCroix that if he truly loves Fleur, he will not take away her mortality - her light. That is what he loves in her. LaCroix finally agrees with Nick, but tells him that one day when he has fallen in love with a mortal, he will take her away in return for what Nick has taken from him. Nick agrees to this bargain...
Favorite Quote: "It is the beauty of her innocence that you love. And that you will kill with the first taste of her blood. If you truly love Fleur, LaCroix, you won't destroy that. You will not." - Nick to LaCroix
About The Fanlisting
What is a fanlisting? Well a fanlisting is a place for fans who come together and build a list of other fans with the same interest, this one being the "Be My Valentine" episode of course. The Fanlistings is the brilliant idea of Janine, who originally created the Buffy fanlisting and thought it would be interesting to find out where all the "Buffy" fans were from. Now, there are thousands of fanlistings for actors, tv shows, movies, books, and practically anything you can imagine. However, for each topic, there can be only one fanlisting.
Is this the Official Be My Valentine Fanlisting? Yes - in a matter of words. It is not approved by anyone to do with Forever Knight, but it is approved by Janine. If you see another Be My Valentine fanlisting, report it to Janine.
