FK news & conversation:

All 10 new 2017 [community profile] fkficfest stories are now revealed! Read them on the AO3.

Tomorrow, I'll post the "closing ceremonies" master list of all the stories, and we'll wrap for the year.

If you haven't already, this would be a great time to point your friends and followers to the game! Share the FK love! And of course it's never too late to share a comment or kudos to make an author's day.

This is our halfway point! We've released 5 stories in this year's [community profile] fkficfest, and we have 5 to go. You can follow the game live on our AO3 collection or from our DW community.

If you read a story, please consider letting the author know! You can leave a comment or click the "Kudos" button. You don't have to have an account or be signed in!

If you haven't had time to read during the workweek, I hope that the weekend brings you time!

The first story of 2017's [community profile] fkficfest is released!

This particular story went first because it's one of the longest this year, and it seemed good to space out the tales that could take more time to read. It's also one of two sharing another characteristic (shh! spoilers!), which also seemed good to stagger for variety.

It did not go first because it was the first loaded, although it was one of the earlier loads. You can see its original loading date of "2017-05-16" right now. Authors can change those dates when their stories release! I'd encourage authors to consider doing so. I'd suggest that when your story releases, you open it to edit and change the date from when it loaded to when it released. I believe that this boosts your story up to the top of the AO3 lists at that time. It gives your story a better chance to be seen by readers who are casually browsing "recently posted" content on your release day. I will do this for the story I wrote.

Yay, FK writers! Yay, FK beta-readers! Yay, FK readers!

Fully loaded!

All ten 2017 [community profile] fkficfest stories are in our AO3 queue! No pinch-hitters needed!

I'm checking that each looks ship-shape (with a recipient and rating and so on). And I'm drawing up our schedule. The first story will release tomorrow; the last will release June 7.

Just thought I'd note that, with an hour to go, 8 of 10 stories are in our [community profile] fkficfest queue on the AO3. Great work, everyone!

I won't be staying up to watch the others roll in. I'll look again on Sunday morning, Pacific Time (after mass, brunch, and my 7-day streak bonuses in PokemonGo ~grin~).

The first story will release on Monday.
