It's getting to be Holmestice time again!
As always, Holmestice is an anonymous gift exchange for all Holmesian fandoms and all kinds of digitally-hostable fanworks -- fic, art, graphics, fanmixes, and vids!
As with previous rounds, we'll be on Dreamwidth
again; furthermore, everyone will have the option to post their work to AO3 instead of
having it hosted on Dreamwidth. That is: sign-ups will be on DW; matching will be done by hand behind-the-scenes; works will be announced on DW and made visible a few per day throughout the anonymous posting period. The individual works themselves will be on Dreamwidth, AO3, or both, depending on the creator's preferences.
In an effort to engage more of the fandom, Holmestice has been branching out to various social media sites! This means we are planning on mirroring all announcement posts to Tumblr
, and Pillowfort
. We will also continue to make announcements to the original LJ Holmestice community
. We will NOT post works or links to works on those sites and communities, but instead will simply link back to DW with entreaties to come read and access the works here and on AO3. We are happy to reblog/retweet though so just shoot us an email or message if you'd like us to do so.
Please let us know what questions you have!

And of course if you would like to make your own promotional graphic for the exchange, we welcome that!
We're looking forward to this coming round and hope you are, too!
