Wow! Yes, hello! It’s been a hell of a while since we’ve updated. I’ve been currently battling the wrath of starting university in NYC and getting my life sorted out- it’s a lot to get underway. (: Thanks for your patience!
As for gift exchanges… why yes, there will be! And very, very shortly! I’ll also be contacting people who have messaged me about possibly moderating. It’s time to get this ship sailing once again!
Keep checking back to this blog within in the next week or so and more will be revealed!
EDIT: PS. If you are still interested in becoming a mod and didn’t message us before, feel free to message me either through my ask or at firstname.lastname@example.org! (:
Cachaemia: n. Poisoned condition of the blood.
A Sherlock AU set in the bleak world of Charles Stross’ Laundry Files. Sherlock and John fell into the Laundry’s power from very different places-Sherlock simply by poking his nose where it didn’t belong, and John by having the great misfortune of nearly becoming a human sacrifice in Afghanistan-and the flatshare is more a matter of convenience than anything else, but when a series of baffling murders puts a reek of the occult in Sherlock’s nostrils, they’re the closest responders available…
Fic by mrshudsontookmyskull (MysteriousRaccoon), written for the Random Prompt Challenge.
Rating: Teen and up
Warnings: Graphic descriptions of violence
I’M SO EXCITED TO FINALLY BE POSTING THIS EEE
not as excited as I will be about posting the first John chapter though wheeeee
Finally decided to post a fic after much internal debate. I did it for the Johnlockchallenges random prompt generator challenge. The prompt I got was this:
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes & John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Sebastian Moran, Molly Hooper, Greg Lestrade, Anderson (Sherlock), Mycroft Holmes, Mrs. Hudson, Sally Donovan, Mike Stamford, Irene Adler
Additional Tags: Angst, Post Reichenbach, Alternate Universe, Mildly Dubious Consent, Hurt/Comfort
Not many people can keep a secret from Sherlock Holmes, and especially not one that’s a matter of life and death. Then again, John always was a little different. John Watson is one of the Gifted. But there’s little time to worry about that when a Necromancer obsessed with the cosulting decective starts spearding ugly rumors and dead bodies around London in order to ruin Sherlock’s already fragile reputation. They boys need to reconnect and learn to trust each other again if thye’re ever going to escape being accused of a crime that comes with a punishment is worse than death.
It’s not too late to write something for the Prompt Challenge if you’re still interested! But to answer your question, yes, we will be! Hehe. I’m actually just finishing up the forms for people to submit to be moderators- but once we have all of that organized, we’ll get underway with our exchange! I’m hoping for mid/late May. (:
Hello, everyone! As the end of the month approaches (fun!) it’s almost time for our Prompt and Theme challenge to conclude! How is everyone doing with their work? Are you almost done your submissions? Not to worry- there’s still time to submit if you’re really itching to be a part of it. More information is available in the links on our side table.
Our posting period for any submissions to the prompt challenge will be April 28 for the Prompt Challenge and May 1 for the Theme Challenge. Try your luck with both- and make sure to follow the submission rules!
I’ll be posting a good amount of information towards the beginning/middle of this month about becoming a JLC moderator- but more on that later!
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or notes, please don’t hesitate to ask us about any of it.
All the best! Happy creating!
Hello! We’re thrilled that you think that our work is inspiring. You’re more than welcome to go ahead and do something like that- and if you do, let us know how that goes so we can follow you! After all, our mission statement is to promote creativity; putting other blogs out there for different pairings just equals more chances to be creative! (:
No! That’s more than fine. As we said, other characters are welcome to be added. In fact, other relationships could happen as well that involve John and Sherlock- as long as John and Sherlock’s are the main (for example, John talking about an ex, or Sherlock leaving someone in order to be with John, etc.)
GET PUMPED FOR THE JLC RANDOM PROMPT CHALLENGE!
Hello, JLCers! As promised, I said that I would be including a writing challenge as well as an art challenge, just to shake things up a bit! Thanks to popular demand, we’re happy to share our zany idea, and we hope that you like it just as much as we do!
A little while back, I reblogged this wonderful post that contained a long list of some very, very neat prompt generators. Some made me smile, some made me laugh, and others were just plain silly- but one prompt generator in particular, Archetype’s Plot Scenario Generator, really stuck out to me as the perfect mix of thoughtful and witty. Inspired by one of Neil Gaiman’s favourite phrases, “What happens next?”, I started to imagine the stories that would have resulted in the meeting of these interesting characters. What was their story? Why then? Why now? And then (as it always seems to happen), I started to think about Johnlock. And bam! This challenge was formed.
Your challenge is to use Archetype’s Plot Scenario Generator (link HERE) as a base for your Johnlock story.
Your story must incorporate the character elements described in the scenario in some way, whether it be through John and Sherlock themselves or through characters/scenes that they witness or are a part of. Humour, drama, crack, casefic, AU and others are all accepted. While the generator does say ‘The story starts…’, that doesn’t have to be true. All that matters is that you can use the situation at hand and go with it!
Thanks so much for your patience! Happy creating!
Not for this challenge, no! People have just been kind enough to share prompts that they received because they were funny. If you’re wanting to submit prompts to other writers, you won’t have to wait long until our next gift exchange or challenge when we let you! (:
It may be possible, as I’m not sure as to how many options the generator specifically has, but the percentage of that happening would be a very, very, very small one. Each prompt is randomly generated in parts, not just as a whole, which changes the scenario each time. I’ve gone through hundreds of different prompts when I was testing it out without running into duplicates. Still, if you were to be generated the same as someone else, it’s not a worry- we’re not going to get mad if you do! Your story is your story, and you have every right to take your prompt and go with it. Besides, two people doing the same prompt does not equate to two identical stories!
tl;dr: Possibly, but the chance of that happening is incredibly slim. Don’t worry about it happening!
