Posting begins now!

Yay! It's here! The start of secret_mutant posting!

There are still some people I've given extensions to whom I haven't heard from, and I'd appreciate if you could finish in a timely manner and get back to me :)

But! Most of the gifts are in so we're clearly proceeding with posting as planned. There are going to be approximately seven gifts posted each day, half in the "morning" (EST) and half in the "evening" EST. The times are entirely dependent on when I'm at work versus when I'm at home, but I'll try to be as consistent as possible. Things are being posted more or less in the order in which they were recieved, if only because that's how I uploaded them to GoogleDocs. Each story will be tagged with the rating and recipient's name. After author reveals, I'll go back and add author tags as well.

One last thing before the posting begins--to make sure that everyone had a story, sometimes we assigned pinch-hitters to authors who didn't quite know if they'd be able to finish on time, so it is possible that some people will end up with more than one gift, but a gift to one person is really a gift to everyone who loves Charles and Erik, isn't it? So really, it just means more of all of us!

Happy Holidays, folks! I hope you enjoy the stories!
