Hey there! I hope that everyone is having a great time writing their stories! Just a few notes about posting:

1. Do we want all stories posted in one day?
2. Do you want each story to have a post here?
3. When you post, please make sure it is to the subcollection and not the parent collection. See link: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/hlhshortcuts/collections This year's collection is called hlh2016

As always, if you have ANY issues, email me at amandr at gmail dot com

Also, Thank you to brightknightie for the archive testing!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are writing well! I have to admit, I haven't started, but for the first time in ages, I KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO DO, so it's just a matter of time. Aw shizznits.

I am figuring out the ins and outs of the collection on A03, and a few things:

The collection is under hlhshortcuts, as someone else created a collection for previous years under hlh_shortcuts. I don't control that collection, and so I couldn't open a subcollection that I can control the settings for. Sorry! Please be sure to post your story to hlhshortcuts2016, not the one with the underscore in it.

The subcollection is Open, Moderated, Unrevealed, Anonymous right now, and so in order to post to it right now, I have to approve you as a member. In that vein, go over and be sure that I have added your name in the membership roll. Or rather I think you were all sent an invite. If you are ready to post and find you cannot do so, just shoot me an email. I might have entered the wrong AO3 name.

I assume you can start posting to it whenever you want. I also think this means that all the stories will be posted at once, so we won't have staggered reveals. I dunno. I will have to poke about further.

Any suggestions/issues/mixed tapes/problems/candy recipes, please post 'em here.
11th-Oct-2016 07:17 pm - Technical delay

because of printing error and lady parts being uncooperative. SOON.
10th-Oct-2016 01:15 pm - Technically, sign ups are closed...

But since I am not due to start matching until tomorrow morning, if you were to slip one in tonight, I wouldn't notice.

Thanks again for putting up with me, and for making this a lovely, seamless fest!

Rating: G for Gen, with Quickening.
Wordcount: 15,000. ish.
Author's Notes: It’s Highlander. And Star Trek. Think Bar Trek. Warnings for massive abuses of temporal physics. Spock is appalled. Or was. Or will be.
