i was driving in the snow for the first time yesterday and as i went into a skid i shit you not my only thought was “I CANNOT DIE BEFORE JOHNLOCK BECOMES CANON”

We’d like to Introduce H.I.A.T.U.S. a monthly Johnlock writing challenge blog.

After the lackluster BBC Sherlock Series 4 we received from TPTB, we wanted to create a way to encourage Johnlockers to keep creating amazing Sherlock fan work!

Our goal is to create a space that promotes community among Johnlock fanfic writers and their audiences through interaction and feedback. H.I.A.T.U.S. aims to be a fun place for readers and a safe space for aspiring writers to explore, make friends, find a project, and promote their work to a wider audience.

Every month we will run writing theme challenges, everyone is welcome to join in! Any submissions received will be posted to the blog during that month. If you’re interested in finding out more, please check out our submission guidelines.

We’re also in the process of creating a Johnlock Fic Masterlist of fanfiction written by our brilliant fan community! This list will be broken up into categories so it’s easy to find whatever story you’re looking for. If you have a fic that’s 25,000 words or less that you think is fantastic let us know by sending us a link through our ask box.

Please help us spread the word by reblogging and signal boosting this post!

Thank you!
