Master List - December 2016

Sorted by category and fandom, you'll find below the cuts 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's 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 - Winter 2016.

And now, without further ado, the Grand Reveal!

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.
Title: Metriacanthosaurus watsoni
Recipient: k_e_p
Author: colebaltblue
Verse: ACD Canon
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1046
Warnings: None
Summary: Holidaying on the Jurassic Coast goes considerably better than holidays in Jurassic Park if movies are to be believed.
Author's Note: I told my beta I was going to write a dinosaur hunting story. My beta got to the end and called me a "dirty bait and switcher". Which yes, because Watson discovered a Plesiosaur. I was a bit defensive about there "not being a lot of dinosaurs in England!" until just before I sent this for posting when I decided to Do Better Research. Mistakes due to last-minute changes are all mine. Significant liberties taken.

Please thank your creators!

It looks like LJ may not be notifying people when entries are posted and their user name is tagged? In the past, LJ usually notifies a user when a post goes up with their user name in it - I don't think that happened unless you were specifically tracking the community for all posts. If you were counting on LJ to notify you when a gift was posted via an automatic email then LJ let you down.

We've noticed that our comment volume has really dropped off and a significant number of gifts haven't been commented on. The mods highly suspect it's for the above reason.

Since ALL gifts have now been posted, please take this time before reveals to thank your creator! Thanking the person who created your gift feels as good as when you get thanked yourself! We all exchange gifts with each other, so please make an effort to drop a thank you in the comments if you can.
Title: Podfic of The Glass Half Full, by Garonne
Recipient: garonne and phoenixfalls
Podfic Reader: sanguinity
Verse: ACD Canon
Characters/Pairings: Holmes/Watson (unresolved), Mary/Watson
Rating: G
Length: 2,524 words, approx 18 minutes
Summary: Nothing but unspoken words and unspent passions, declarations never made and caresses never given.

Holmes and Mary Watson have an after-dinner conversation about Watson.

Podficcer's Notes: Phoenixfalls requested a podfic of their own work or a work they've recommended. After their recommendation reminded me of Garonne's poignant "The Glass Half-Full," I trotted over to Garonne's journal to obtain permissions, only to discover that they, too, had requested podfic! So this is a joint gift for the both of you. I trust you'll share nicely.

Thanks to REDACTED for beta and REDACTED for Brit-listening.

Thank you so much for another successful round of Holmestice! We have a few extra treats coming up in just a minute. (And if you're itching to make something else, we are happy to take additional treats right through until reveals!)

The mods want to say THANK YOU to all the creators that joined us for this round of Holmestice. 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 a link on your LJ entry, just send us an email and we'll add one.

Reveals and the Master List go up on December 21st, but until then read and comment 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!

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

Fic for rodlox: The Countdowns Series

Title: The Countdowns Series
Recipient: rodlox
Author: scandalbaby
Verse: Elementary/Sherlock
Characters/Pairings: Joan Watson/Sally Donovan, BBC!Greg Lestrade, Marcus Bell & Elementary!Sherlock Holmes
Rating: PG
Warnings: Some language
Summary: This is a world in which most people have a timer on their wrist to count down until they meet their soul mate. Both Joan and Sally, however, have rather given up hope of meeting theirs, until a cross jurisdictional case lands them smack in each others path.
Authr's Notes: Hi, rodlox! Thank you for allowing me to try something a little different than what you asked for in your sign-up. When I saw you didn't mind allowing Sally Donovan in your fic, I had to ask if I could write my pet ship of Joan Watson/Sally Donovan, and I was so happy you said yes! I was originally going to do one long story, but due to RL issues I ended up writing you a series. It focuses mostly on the beginning of the Joan/Sally relationship, and it revolves around a case (and I made sure everyone was civil to everyone else, except to INTERPOL people) and if you like it I have plans of continuing it after Holmestice. It's also a soulmate AU, based on an idea from silentpeaches on Tumblr ("It’s been a busy week and after finally having some time to yourself, you just happened to look at your soulmate clock and see that it’s already at 00:00:00:00 and you don’t know when that happened because you don’t religiously check your clock either"). The series is going to continue after this, BTW, with mentions of other ships and stuff, but this is the start of it.

One thing: it's set after what I know of season 4 of Elementary and what's rumored to be in series 4 of Sherlock (just the vague "ending" feeling) so there's mentions of both Holmes/Moriarty and Holmes/Fiona as well as oblique but not spoilery series 4 stuff for Sherlock.

Author: ellipsical
Verse: BBC Sherlock
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Rating: Teen & Up
Warnings: none
Tags: Alternate meeting, It’s for science, John!, First Kiss
Summary: Sherlock agrees to participate in an experiment. Kissing a perfect stranger for fifty pounds? What could be easier? It’s for science, after all. Based on this video. Title taken from the Soko song: We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow, which plays in the background. Thank you to Ariane Devere’s episode transcripts and to my beta, HiddenLacuna who is the best of the best of the best. verdant_fire said she had a soft spot for the “It’s for science!” trope, so I hope this fits the bill! Find me on AO3 as REDACTED.

Title: The Chimney-Sweep’s Aunt
Recipient: capt_facepalm
Author: snarryfool / ancientreader
Verse: ACD
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Tommy Jencks (OC), Annie Wilson (OC)
Rating: PG-13 / T
Warnings: Character death (not Holmes or Watson); descriptions of Victorian child labor
Summary: In which Holmes is bested by a dying chimney-sweep, a retired music-hall artiste, and Dr. Watson; the episode does all four persons credit, and yet it is not an occasion for rejoicing.

Thanks as always to my indefatigable beta team, REDACTED.

Happy Holmestice, capt_facepalm! I hope I have done justice to the good Dr. Watson here. I can at least vouch for the research — which, by the way, was fascinating: thank you for welcoming the germ of plot that led me to do it.
