The mods can't. Well, one can, and she's busy reminding the other two.

Below you will find our schedule for this round of Holmestice and some housekeeping items.

First, housekeeping. As many of you are well aware, there has been a situation with LJ and we are migrating away from that platform. With community support we have moved to Dreamwidth for a wide variety of reasons. We are not done migrating the community yet and we know many of you are eager to get all your work off LJ sooner rather than later.

While we plan to eventually scrub content from all LJ entries and replace content with URLs pointing to the work on Dreamwidth (just in case people have old bookmarks, etc.) you can request that we do your work sooner rather than later. Please fill out this form and we'll create a queue and get to work on it.

Please Remove My Content From LJ Sooner Rather Than Later Form

Welcome to the Winter 2017 round of Holmestice!

It's happening this year because after 14 successful rounds you didn't think we were actually going to stop, did you?

Here is our schedule:
Sign-ups OPEN - September 26th
Sign-ups CLOSE - October 10th
Assignments GO OUT - October 17th
Assignments DUE - November 21st
Posting BEGINS - Dec 1st
Posting ENDS - Dec 14th

As usual, any help in advertising the community would be AWESOME! Anyone can volunteer to help with graphics for promoting, of course (banners/headers for social media or cross-community posts). And please feel free to comment here on this post with your thoughts, hopes, dreams, and wishes.

Sorted by category and fandom, all the amazing fanworks created by this year's participants, for your perusal and entertainment and finally with the names attached. Now comments can be answered and works reposted all over the web, and pimping shall commence far and wide!

Recipients: while it's in no way a rule and requirement to comment on your gift (and most of you have done so already), it is nevertheless highly encouraged. Someone created something especially for you, and the least you can do is say thank-you, even if you yourself had to drop out.

If you haven't added your fanwork to the AO3 collection, and you want to, you can add it here: Holmestice Exchange - Summer 2017.

And now, without further ado, the Grand Reveal!

Fiction )

Podfic )

Many thanks to everyone who participated! If you see any mistakes or omissions in the master list, please email the mods and we'll get it fixed up ASAP.

We'll be editing the posts now to put all the author/artist and beta information in there as well, but it's going to take some time. Please have a little patience; we'll get there.

ETA: All posts have been updated with author/artist and beta info! Please double-check our work, and send us an email if you spot an error.

Thank you so much for another successful round of Holmestice! The mods want to say THANK YOU to all the creators that joined us for this round. You put in a lot of hard work and made some really great fanworks. If you'd like to post to AO3, you may do so at your leisure. If you'd like an AO3 link on your DW entry, just send us an email and we'll add one.

Reveals and the Master List go up on June 27th; until then, please enjoy reading and commenting on all the lovely fanworks. Creators, please do NOT respond to comments (except on AO3, which maintains anonymity) or post your fanwork elsewhere on the Internet until reveals go up in the community.

We'll also publish treats right through until reveals: if there's a prompt out there that intrigues you and you want to whip something up for it, please do! Just send it to holmestice@gmail.com, using the regular submission guidelines.

If you'd like to guess at who created what in this round, a list of all the participants is below the cut. Go ahead and take a guess! It's all in good fun.

Go forth and leave love for your fellow Holmestice authors, artists, and podficcers. See you again on the 27th, when we reveal who made what!

Title: The Case of the Six Marmalades
Recipient: [personal profile] smallhobbit
Author: [personal profile] sanguinity
Verse: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson (Whitehead Holmes)
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Rating: G
Warnings: N/A
Summary: Holmes likes both Watson and marmalade. Perhaps even in that order.
Author notes: For [personal profile] smallhobbit, who fishes so many of us out of the soup every round. May she always have precisely as much marmalade as she desires!

Title: Charlotte Holmes in the 22nd Century
Recipient: [personal profile] language_escapes
Author: [personal profile] graycardinal
Verse: Charlotte Holmes (Cavallaro); Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century
Characters: Charlotte Holmes, Beth Lestrade, OCs
Rating: G/Teen (some violence)
Genre: AU/Fusion; Gen
Warnings:
Assumes general knowledge of the Cavallaro books to date, particularly including the genealogical charts in The Last of August, but avoids specific spoilers; extrapolates from there.
Summary:
One hundred forty-seven years. Too long, I thought, and not nearly long enough. “I don’t imagine you’ve woken me just to chat about our respective ancestors. And the Yard has always had trouble with really creative criminals. Still—”

“We had hardly any criminals, period, for over fifty years,” Lestrade interjected. “Then about three months ago, things changed."


Introductory Notes:
I have taken liberties with both canons in developing the following narrative, for which I hope both the creators and the current readership will forgive me. [I have not, as a certain person dared me suggested, crossed over All The Things. But this is most definitely that person's fault.]

Title: Podfic of On the Mend, by Gardnerhill
Recipient: [personal profile] gardnerhill
Podfic Reader: [personal profile] colebaltblue
Verse: ACD Canon
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson
Rating: Not rated
Length: 6,841 words, approx 38 minutes
Summary: Some things are more painful to confront than a mere scratch of a bullet graze.

Podficcer's Notes: Gardnerhill requested a podfic of their own work. I like challenges and trying new things so here I am. Or rather, here you go, Gardnerhill. Please blame stops, stutters, or other mistakes on my enthusiasm to tackle something new. It was a delight to read this and I enjoyed making it for you. I hope you (and others) enjoy.

I tried for multiple days to get this to stream on google drive and I'm not sure what the problem is. Unfortunately, it looks like you will be forced to download, apologies for that.

Title: Nostoi
Recipient: Rocío / [tumblr.com profile] disheveledcurls
Author: [personal profile] sanguinity
Verse: New Russian Holmes x The Lost World
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Tags: Post-Reichenbach, Crossover, Action/Adventure, Hurt/Comfort, Happy Ending
Word Count: approx. 21,000
Summary: Holmes wants to see the last European pterodactyl safely home. Watson just wants to see Holmes happy again.

Author Notes: Comprehensive spoilers for the final episode of New Russian Holmes; light spoilers for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World (i.e., the basic premise and the climatic moment -- which is a nice bit of drama, but doesn't spoil much of anything about the plot). The Lost World is available on gutenberg.org, but this story requires no specific knowledge of the novel.

Much thanks to [personal profile] language_escapes and [personal profile] grrlpup for beta, and to [personal profile] smallhobbit for Britpick!

Recipient: [personal profile] muirgen258
Author: [personal profile] yeomanrand and [personal profile] shinychimera
Verse: Sherlock BBC
Characters/Pairings: John/Mary, John/Sherlock, John/Sherlock/Mary
Rating: PG-13 for themes and swearing
Warnings: Angst, drug use, threat with a gun

Summary: The events in the train car (The Empty Hearse, 3x01) broke the last remnants of John's ability to trust Sherlock; he couldn't bear to work together anymore — not when he had Mary, who would never lie to him. Sherlock, convinced that John's forgiveness and friendship were unattainable, did not attend the wedding, and retreated into 221B with only the Work and old vices for company, leaving John to the wife he deserved.

A remixed mashup of His Last Vow (3x03) and The Lying Detective (4x02), in which everyone's secrets and lies and unhappiness and anger are forced into a high-stakes confrontation.
