It's the weekend. Time for another Holding The Line chapter! So here's Raptor.
HTL continues with Part Five of the Tiger Hunt series, "Hammer and Anvil". This chapter follows on directly from "Eyes of The Fleet". Lieutenant Colonel Lofton's sacrifice has allowed the Valkyries to remain undetected, while the information gained by the Ghost Warriors has given them a clear picture of the enemy force that is hunting them. Now, the Border Worlders have the chance to bloody the enemy's nose a little, and they're going to make the most of it. This chapter is written by yours truly, so please send any and all comments to me at email@example.comWe've got our usual local copy here.
In other news, the HTL archives have had a major update, with two dozen of our backlogged chapters archived, including some chapters that have yet to be posted on the CIC. Seeing as the original plan was to gradually merge the stories posted weekly on the CIC with the fortnightly Aces list chapters until the two ran in parallel, I'm going to continue posting the chapters in sequence here. The way I see it, there's no sense in messing with something that's working well by leapfrogging ahead by a dozen chapters. Those who simply can't wait to read more HTL though, can find it at:
While the award HTL received in the CIC fan project contest wasn't *quite* the one we were aiming for, it was a very nice one to win nonetheless. Many thanks to all those who voted for us. The HTL writers put in a heck of a lot of time and effort into the storyline, and it's nice to know that our efforts are appreciated by our fellow WC fans.
Last but not least, seeing as this will be the last chapter posted before the holidays, I want to wish all Wingnuts a very merry Christmas. Have fun,and don't get so drunk you're too hung over to read the next HTL chapter. ;-)
