Twelve Days of Sherlolly

Will our favorite couple cuddle together in front of a roaring fire at 221B?  Are there snowball fights in Mummy and Daddy Holmes’ garden? Will someone be visited by the Ghost of Christmas Future?

We’re looking for stories and art for our Twelve Days of Sherlolly celebration.

Works can be any rating, any length, any genre, and any medium (art, fic, knitted dolls, videos, etc). However, they must be a Sherlolly work with a winter or Christmas theme.  Has someone stepped under the mistletoe?  A brightly wrapped present mysteriously appeared under the Christmas tree?  Silly, sweet, or smutty—the Fest is open to it all.

We will open posting on the Twelve Days of Sherlolly collection at Ao3 on December 14th and close it at midnight (MT) on December 31st. You may notice that’s a bit more than twelve days, we know the winter holiday season can be rather busy so we’ve tossed in a few extra to help lighten the load.  (And Eighteen Days of Sherlolly just doesn’t have the same ring).  Authors/artists will be welcome to post their works to the community at any time while it is open.

There will be a master list of Fest works found on @holidaysat221b  after the Fest ends.

If you have any questions, feel free to message @darnedchild  or @lilsherlockian1975 on Tumblr. 

The Rules:

1)      Must be on theme in some way.

2)      Sherlolly must be the main pairing, but other ships are welcomed.

3)      Fics must be complete before they start posting to the collection.  The collection can be found at

4)      To add your work to the Ao3 collection:  Post your fic to Ao3 as you normally would, but in the “Post to Collections / Challenges” box you need to type Twelve_Days_Of_Sherlolly.  This should add your work to Twelve Days of Sherlolly collection.  If you have any problems, please message a mod so we can help you out.

5)      Multi-chapter fics are welcome to post over a period of days as long as the final chapter is posted prior to the close of the community.  Any unfinished fics may be deleted on January 1st.

6)      Tag your ships. Improperly tagged fics may be deleted.

7)      If you want to post your work on Tumblr, please tag it with ‘twelve_days_of_sherlolly’ somewhere in the first five tags.

8)      If you want to participate but don’t want to post to Ao3, feel free to send a mod a link to your work and we’ll add it to the master list on @holidaysat221b.

Please join in the fun!!!

We want to give a HUGE thanks to @mel-loves-all for making the amazing graphic above!
