[Uhm, no, Jo, literally no one wants to do that. If you're gonna be super-dramatic, we told you we could do this ourselves...]

No, it's cool, me and Dolphinboy-on-crack here got it.

Aaaaand that's a wrap, my brilliant drabble stars! You have all been MAGNIFIQUE.


yeah, hey, not entirely terrible i guess?

Thank you, Haymitch.

anytime, darlin'.

ANYWAY. Submissions for Drabble Day are now closed - do feel free to post more drabbles if inspiration lingers, we will still adore and comment on each one, although late ones won't count towards the official tally.

And speaking of the tally, your mods will compile some numbers and master lists and impressive accomplishments and such, once they have caught up on, as they hyena-cackled in my general direction just now, ALL THE SLEEP OMFG. So watch this space.

Adieu, you have been the brightest of bright phoenixes!

Save the date for Drabble Day!


Starting at 11pm GMT on Friday, 26 January, you are menacingly cordially invited to participate in 24 hours of drabbling madness. (Yes, we decided that 12 hours was not quite mad enough and have returned to our usual format). As in previous years, drabbles will be limited to exactly 100 words and will be accepted for all pairings and all fandoms.

Time zones are as follows:
US midwest (CST): 26 Jan, 5pm - 27 Jan, 5pm
US/Canada East Coast (EST): 26 Jan, 6pm - 27 Jan, 6pm
UK (GMT): 26 Jan, 11pm - 27 Jan, 11pm
Europe (CET): 26 Jan, midnight - 27 Jan, midnight (i.e. starting 24:00 Friday or 00:00 if you're counting from Saturday)
NZ (NZST): 27 Jan, noon - 28 Jan, noon

Another post announcing the rules and this year's theme will be coming soon.* In the meantime, have a hint and also an annoying earworm:

Hope to see you all there! \o/

*Just as soon as we've relearned how the hell banners and IJ work.
