Welcome to the Holmesian (Holiday) Fanworks Exchange!
This is a community for the Sherlock Holmes fandom(s) fanworks exchange. All 'verses and all types of digital fanwork (meaning anything that can be shared through the internet) are eligible and we accept any and all characters and pairings; there's no limit to the fun!
The exchange is modelled on various Secret Santa exchanges, i.e. each participant will be assigned an intended recipient for whom ze will create a gift story/doodle/podfic/manip/fanmix/set of icons/vid/other digital fanwork. The artists and authors will remain anonymous until the Master List goes up on December 21st and June 21st respectively. Please note that this is a non-denominational exchange, but the default assumption at least once a year might be Christmas; if you absolutely don't want to receive a Christmas-themed gift during the December solstice exchange, please note so in the do-not-wants of your sign-up post. Likewise, art and stories don't need to have anything to do with any type of holiday unless the recipient specifically asks for it.
PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN POSTING SCHEDULE AND REVEALS FROM PREVIOUS HOLMESTICE ROUNDS!
All assignments sent out
Fanworks are due
If you want to take part in the exchange, all you have to do is join the community and create a new post with your gift request during the official sign-up period. Please use the provided template.
All stories and podfics have to be a minimum of 1,000 words in length, icon posts should contain at least 10 icons. Any type of fanwork is required to go through some kind of beta process. Any questions, please e-mail the mods at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com so we can find a pinch hitter to create a gift for your intended recipient.
