Seasons of the Heart  
Hey guys. Remember a long time ago we had a holiday archive, Season of the Heart, that kind of went away because of all the trouble we were having with hackers?

Just thought I'd let everyone know I re-opened it as a collection on AO3. So any of you who have AO3 accounts (which should be everyone...if not, let me know and I'll try to get you an invite! :-) ), if you could please add your holiday fic to the collection, I'd be ecstatic! :-) Also, let me know which holidays I missed--I know there are several!
Current Mood: accomplished

Awesome! I'll try and add my stuff later :)

I haven't looked at what holidays you have, but off the top of my head, I know I have fic for Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Passover, and Fourth of July. Maybe Rosh Hashana and Purim? Not sure about those.

Yes on Rosh Hashana, no on Purim. I feel like I'm still forgetting a holiday.

Easter! I have an SAJV Easter fic :) And New Year's!

Do birthdays and anniversaries count? I've got a story for both.

Hmm, I thought I saw Christmas on the subcollections list, but it doesn't come up in the autosuggest. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, I'm sure most of us have Christmas fic :D

Yeah, for some reason autosuggest doesn't seem to like the Christmas subcollection (don't say anything ;-) ), but if you type in the whole "name" of the collection, it'll still let you add to it: "christmas_azar"

I'll add categories for Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashana and Easter. :-)

Also, what do you think: should I open it up to other contributors or keep it strictly for I&Q folks? It's moderated, so I can go either way.

ETA: I hadn't decided yet about birthdays, anniversaries, other special occasions like that. We probably have enough fic. I'll go with whatever the majority wants to do. :-)

I think it'd be sort of fun to add the birthdays and anniversaries, but it won't hurt my feelings if folks disagree :D And if nobody else has fic for those categories, there isn't much point!

I'm torn on opening it up. I could go either way.

Oh, I have fic for both. :-)

Re: opening up the archive to others. I think I'm waiting to see how many of us actually *put* our fic up on the collection. ;-) *poke* *poke*

If it winds up being just you and me, Mara, some of the subcollections might look a little sparse so at that point I'd consider welcoming other people to submit stories. :-)

It could still be restricted to people we specifically invite to submit. A "Friends of Ink and Quill" collection or something like that. *g*

ETA: Oh, and the subcollections you asked for should be open! :-)
