How to Add your Masterpiece to the Collection

All completed stories relating to Highlander are welcome, with a few caveats.  Whether your story only uses the same concept of immortality as Highlander with non-canon characters, a passing mention of one of the movie or TV characters, or a full blown epic concerning your favorite immortal from the TV shows or movies, your story is  welcome.    Again, stories must be complete (writers with a story in progress should submit their stories to the WIP branch run by Frank), but they can be part of an incomplete series.  This site is intended to be all inclusive for Highlander fan fiction, the archivist's personal reading preferences are not a factor.   However, no living real person is to be used as a character.  No actors from the shows or movies are to be included as characters in fanfic works included here.  Yes, you can use Plato as a character, or have Methos and Duncan compare the current President's foibles to the previous one,  but please don't use your ex-best friend as the archvillian, and do not (shudders) have the current President  as a character in the story.  Real life is great inspiration for fiction, but avoiding hurt feelings and libel lawsuits is  best for all.

 X-Over and Slash stories be need to  marked as such.    Warnings of content that may be offensive to some readers (such as Character Death, BDSM,  religious figures not being holy,  harsh language) is a good idea.  Warning readers of characters wearing white shoes after Labor Day would be a bit much.  ;-) Telling readers who is involved with who (pairings) can be a good idea, if it is not a spoiler for the story.  In any case, if you need guidance e-mail the archivist after reading this page.

All stories are stored on site as text files.  It makes upkeep of this site  simpler.  No dead links suddenly appear after a story has been up for years. .  In addition hard drives crash, free websites kick off sites, well meaning friends and family delete files - keeping a copy of the story here insures it won't accidentally disappear.  Most stories are stored as single files, to make it easier to download an entire story for those readers who have limited access to the web.

If you do not want to have your story included, please consider  submitting the url of your site for the links page.  If you have an issue with some aspect of the site, contact me with your concerns.  If your story is already on another archive, still feel free to submit the story here. The entire purpose of this site is to make it easier for Highlander readers to find the stories.  There is no other agenda.  :-)

To submit your story, you can either e-mail it to me following the formatting suggestions on this page (and including the archive information, or include "Archive: Seventh Dimension" in the headers of the story on a mailing list that I am subscribed to.

Formatting Notes

 

Please send your stories in text format, with a blank line between each paragraph.  Text formatting does not allow for the use of italics or bold face font, so use symbols to indicate your meaning, such as: *bold*, /italics/, _underline_.   The important part here is to be consistent.  If you are using Word to type your story please turn off automatic formatting before you start to type.  If you need directions, e-mail me.

Also, please note that MacLeod is spelled with a capital "L", Richie has no "t", and that Connor is spelled with an "o".

I am subscribed to many Highlander lists, so if you have posted your story to a list I may already have a copy. If you included "Archive: Seventh Dimension" in the headers of the story on a mailing list, and I haven't archived it after 4 weeks or so, please e-mail me.  If your story is in html, and you don't know how to convert it, please e-mail me.  I try to make it as easy as possible for authors to submit, so talk to me about what is workable for you.

 


And as always, I am more than happy to discuss any issues you may have.

Please keep in mind I need a week or four, depending on how many stories I've received, to get your story up. :-)
