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: REDACTED
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: REDACTED
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.]

Hey everyone!

Posting time is fast approaching! I hope you’re all doing fantastically on your fics. Even if you’ve finished and looked over your story yourself, it’s a good idea have a beta reader give it a second look before posting. Sometimes it can be hard to find a beta, so that’s what this post is for!

If you need a beta or would like to offer your beta services, please leave a comment below. I’ve even included nice little text boxes you can use as a base for your request or offer! (Please ignore the <br /> tags in the boxes... I've not been able to figure out how to get rid of them on here.)

For writers:



For betas:



Feel free to contact a writer or beta with the information they've included and try to match up! The Livejournal post can be found here if you'd like to widen your scope or crosspost.

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.

Fic for disheveledcurls: Nostoi

holmesticemods: (Default)
[personal profile] holmesticemods posting in [community profile] holmestice
Title: Nostoi
Recipient: Rocío / [livejournal.com profile] disheveledcurls
Author: REDACTED
Verse: New Russian Holmes x The Lost World

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.

Origin: Homeric Greek.

[personal profile] reeby10 posting in [community profile] wipbigbang
Hi everyone!

This is the Rough Draft Check In. Unlike the other check in's, this one is mandatory. You do NOT have to turn anything into us, your assurances are enough. By this point you should be at least 80% done, though I know several people are already at the beta and editing stages! If you're not at least 80% done, please also let us know if you think you'll be able to finish by the deadline and if there's anything we can do to help you finish.

Comments are screened, so we're the only ones that will see. If you did a double check in on the last check in or have already confirmed with us through email, there’s no need to check in again. So come one, come all, come vent, come celebrate, come worry! Let's do this thing! :D

Reminder: Posting date claims will go up on Wednesday, June 28th. Be sure to talk with your author/artist about what date is best!

This is a week later than the original date of Wednesday, June 21st, bc we still have several fics that have not been claimed for art and we want them claimed before posting dates opens. Please PLEASE check out the art claims post and send over anyone you think might be interested!

These are all great stories that deserve an awesome artist. Please look into your hearts and see if you want to claim any of these. Also, TELL YOUR FRIENDS. Bribe them with kisses and pie. I've just checked with my lawyer and it's perfectly acceptable to grab your artist friends and stuff them in a sack and bring them over here*. There will be posts on the tumblr for each fic for easier sharing!
