The sign-ups are now officially open!

If you want to take part in the exchange, all you have to do is join the Dreamwidth community and create a new post using the template below with your offer and request.

If you do not have or want a Dreamwidth account, you can use your LJ OpenID to leave a comment on this post.

(ETA: You may also leave an anonymous comment on this post! Please make sure that you fill in all the identifying info in the template itself, so we know who signed up!)



Like last round, we will have an AO3 collection open for immediate, anonymous crossposting, and can include a link to your AO3 work in the original post.

The sign-up template below includes ratings for what you're willing to create and would like to receive. Sexual content is deliberately separated from violence and other mature themes, so if you are someone who enjoys PWP but not violence, you have an easy way of indicating that (or vice versa) for other Holmestice participants.

The template also includes a list of suggested Holmesian fandoms and iterations. This is not an exhaustive list! If you have another fandom in mind, please include it in your sign up! Alternatively, if you're open to any Holmesian fandom, please feel free to say so!

Sign-up Template )


You can edit your post until sign-ups close on May 1. Anything you add or delete after that will not be taken into account.

All stories must be a minimum of 1,000 words in length; icon posts must contain at least 10 icons; vids must be at least one minute in length. Any type of fanwork is required to go through some kind of beta process. All finished fanworks must be sent to the mods at holmesticemods(at)gmail(dot)com on or before June 3rd. If you haven't submitted your work by then and have not contacted us for an extension, we will automatically look for a pinch hitter.

Please remember that if you sign up to receive a gift, it'll only be fair if you create one as well. That said, if you have to drop out of the exchange for any reason, please e-mail contact one of the moderators as soon as possible or e-mail us at holmesticemods(at)gmail(dot)com so we can find a pinch hitter to create a gift for your intended recipient. If you need your recipient to clarify their prompt or ask if they're all right with that one particular thing you'd like to work in, please contact us, and we'll forward the question to preserve your anonymity.

Since this is our first time hosting the exchange at Dreamwidth, there may be some bumps along the way as we learn to work with the new platform. Please have patience with us, and send us an email at holmesticemods at gmail if you run into problems somewhere.

Most importantly, have fun!

Just a note to let everyone know that the signups are now closed.

If you're interested in what happens next; check out our two "Behind the Scenes" posts we did awhile ago!

Matches will go out in a week.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the mods.

But in the grand tradition of Holmestice, Monday is a nebulous date that means that sometime shortly after Monday ends all over the world, a mod will show up to make a post and close signups. As long as as you don't see that post at the top of the page, you're good to sign up!

Just a friendly modly reminder: Holmestice is open to any and all iteration of Holmes and any and all type of fanworks and any and all types of content. While we ask for you to please be explicit in your wants and do not wants and we encourage creators to create with abandon, we'd really like it if everyone could remember that not all content is for everyone and that it is especially considerate not to add any editorializing to your list of wants or do not wants.

I will create: fic!
A fanwork of the following type(s): fic
In one or more of the following parts of fandom: ACD Canon, Sherlock BBC;
Radio/other.:John Taylor Rediscovered Railway Mysteries
For one or more of the following relationships: Sherlock/John, Sherlock/Lestrade, Sherlock/Other, John/Mary Morstan, John/Other, Other/Other, Mary Morstan/Other, Mycroft/Lestrade, Mycroft/Other
I like working with one or more of the following categories: Fluff; Angst; Post-Reichenbach; Alternate Universe; Romance; Hurt/Comfort; Established Relationship; Crossover; Friendship; Case Fic; First Time; Drug Addiction; Porn, PWP, Omegaverse
With any of the following ratings: 1) suitable for general audiences; 3) explicit sexual content; 4) mild to moderate violence or depictions of non-sexual mature themes; 5) moderate to explicit graphic violence or depictions of non-sexual mature themes
I am willing to create for the following squicks and/or kinks: dubcon; non-con/rape; torture; domestic abuse; alcohol/drug abuse; incest; suicide; (canon)character death; child abuse; etc.


I want to receive:
A fanwork of the following type(s): fic
In one or more of the following parts of fandom:Books: ACD Canon; Sherlock BBC

For one or more of the following relationships: Sherlock/John, Mycroft/Lestrade, Mycroft/Other, John/Other, Sherlock/Other, John/Mary
I like stuff in the following categories: Fluff; Angst; Post-Reichenbach; Alternate Universe; Romance; Hurt/Comfort; Established Relationship; Crossover; Friendship; Humor; Case Fic; First Time; Friendship; Drug Addiction; Bondage, Omegaverse
With any of the following ratings: 1) suitable for general audiences; 3) explicit sexual content; 4) mild to moderate violence or depictions of non-sexual mature themes; 5) moderate to explicit graphic violence or depictions of non-sexual mature themes
I wouldn’t mind any of the following squicks and/or kinks: dubcon; non-con/rape; bdsm; bloodplay; torture; domestic abuse; alcohol/drug abuse; incest; self-harm; suicide; (canon)character death; child abuse

Please include further details about what you’d like to receive: Well, I do loves me some Johnlock. Like, a lot. While I don't mind John or Sherlock having other relationships, I would prefer if their relationship to one another were tantamount*. I like understated romance done through gesture, hurt/comfort, having fun and doing Dangerous Things together. I like second times, because that can be hella awkward. Give me all the BAMF! you can handle - yaaaaasss. AU, casefiles, slice of life - love it all.

Having said that, I love Mycroft and adore Lestrade - I don't think we see them being BAMFs enough, tbh. And Mycroft, how does he handle the pressure of being the Government?

ETAA:

Special requests: I'm not particularly interested in kinks that include watersports or humiliation. They're just not my thing. No non-canon major character death, please. I'm not particularly into a lot of pining...by which I mean, don't give me pages where all Character A thinks about is Character B, etc etc. That's all well and good, so long as that's not all the story is about. Finally, no m-preg if you can help it!

* While this is a list of wants and don't wants, that doesn't mean that I'll hate it if you just have to write a murderous, child-abusing m-preg who does drugs and is suicidal. Y'know? Well, I probably will hate that particular story, but I'm just saying that you shouldn't necessarily scrap something that you can't get out of your head...because that happens to me sometimes...

Summer 2015 Holmestice sign-ups close today. So if you were considering signing up, now's the time to do so! As long as the top post isn't "sign-ups are closed" it's still considered "today" by the mods, so sign up!

Assignments will be distributed by April 27th.

If you'd like to make edits to your current sign-up you may also do so until you see the post go up about sign-ups closing.

Please note we've shortened the time between the submission deadline and reveals - reveals will be on the solstice this round instead of the 1st of the month after. We are also allowing optional submission of works via our collection at AO3. We'll post info on how to do that after matches go out. But this means that if you use this option, your work will be hosted on AO3 from the beginning, keeping all your comments, kudos, and bookmarks in the same spot! This is optional and we'll still happily host works here on LJ if you'd prefer.

Please note that this is a non-denominational exchange, but the default assumption for the time of year might be Christmas; if you absolutely don't want to receive a Christmas-themed gift, please note so in the do-not-wants of your sign-up post.
