brightknightie: Duncan and Tessa embrace on the sidewalk. (Other Fandom Highlander)
I somehow didn't see this until [personal profile] elistaire pointed it out just now, but [community profile] hlh_shortcuts sign-ups have been open since 10/06, and will be open through 10/15 — tomorrow!

Coming to it this late, I doubt there's enough time for me to make up my mind whether to play and to compose a sign-up. (You've seen me agonize through these things, right? And I have a lot of hesitation in HL fandom.) But I always read in this exchange fest, and look forward to that reading very much!

News & conversation:

  • 9/14: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien summarized and linked to another live Q&A by some of the in-production movie actors and directors. Rights issues are blamed for the movie being so fundamentally unlike our FK that their Nick doesn't even want to be human.
  • 9/07: [personal profile] nicholas_lucien shared a look at the in-production movie's new title logo, and summarized an earlier live Q&A by some of the movie's PTB.

FK news & conversation:

brightknightie: Stonetree and Norma looking at a CRT monitor (Computer)
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.

brightknightie: Stonetree and Norma looking at a CRT monitor (Computer)
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!

brightknightie: Stonetree and Norma looking at a CRT monitor (Computer)
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.
