Guys, you will not believe the tally for Drabble Day 2016! It's staggering! In just 12 hours, 124 drabbles were posted in a total of 47 fandoms! They included:
Avatar the Last Airbender, Alles Was Zählt, Bandom (MCR and PATD), Black Sails, Robin Hobb's Liveship Trilogy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charles II (Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver), Community, Dawson's Creek, Doctor Who, Empire, The L.A. Complex, Frozen, Game of Thrones, Hamilton, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Jessica Jones, Lord of the Rings, Luke Cage, Miss Fisher, My Mad Fat Diary, My So-Called Life, Nashville, Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series, Outlander, Parks & Recreation, Please Like Me, Ronja the Robber's Daughter, Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, The Shawshank Redemption, Sherlock, Spartacus, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Supernatural, The Shoebox Project, The Thick of It, The Walking Dead, Torchwood, Turn, Victoria, Welcome to Night Vale, Wentworth, Within the Wires and original fic.
Considering that the challenge lasted just 12 hours - half as long as last year, when 154 drabbles were submitted - I think it's fair to say that you guys really rose to the occasion.
Get it? Rose? Like bread rises...
... < crickets >
Peeta, we've talked about puns...
I know, I'm sorry. Anyway, I'm here to announce the individual totals.
AMENDED RESULTSWith 26 drabbles each (posted during the 24 hours of the challenge), aldiara and amyriadfthings are tied! amyriadfthings's last minute bread binge for Please Like Me gave us lots of food for thought ...
Sorry. Also, in case you missed it, aldiara snuck in an additional 5 after the deadline), including the conclusion of the epic tragedy of Kaldrick and Jamal (Kalmal?). Be sure to go back and read her final 4 drabbles to revisit the whole crushing sensation.
Next up was amo_amas_amat, who wrote 19 drabbles in an impressive mix of 10 different fandoms, followed by spaghettitoes who brought in 17 drabbles in diverse fandoms ranging from Frozen to Luke Cage, lilithilien with 16 (mostly Black Sails) drabbles, and winterlover with 13 drabbles (and bringing the bandom!). And despite a late start (stupid time zones), notoriouslyuniq got in 6 drabbles including an original anthromorphic creation.
All in all, a really extraordinary showing. Well done!!! You all deserve a big round of applause!
See you again next year!!
