2021 Results Post Part Deux


Welcome back to our show.

Now it's time to celebrate YOU, people of letters, litterateurs, scribes, scribblers, and wordsmiths all. You who have selflessly sacrificed to bring into this weary world your effusive outpourings of pathos and passion. Your verbosity has brought each of you here as victors... )

The results are in!


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), [info]aldiara and [info]amyriadfthings are tied! [info]amyriadfthings's last minute bread binge for Please Like Me gave us lots of food for thought ...

Sorry. Also, in case you missed it, [info]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 [info]amo_amas_amat, who wrote 19 drabbles in an impressive mix of 10 different fandoms, followed by [info]spaghettitoes who brought in 17 drabbles in diverse fandoms ranging from Frozen to Luke Cage, [info]lilithilien with 16 (mostly Black Sails) drabbles, and [info]winterlover with 13 drabbles (and bringing the bandom!). And despite a late start (stupid time zones), [info]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!!

Drabble Day Tally!

The results for Drabble Day 2015 are in, and they are magnificent! Although we had a smaller pool of contributors this year, there were 154 drabbles submitted in a total of 54 fandoms, Drabble Day's largest number of fandoms to date. Absolutely fucking fabulous! We've also been super-impressed with how you've approached the prompts - yes, there was a fair amount of hair drabbles (AS WE HOPED!) but you also went incredibly creative in your interpretations and brought some very varied themes (AS WE ALSO HOPED!). Win-win.

These are all the fandoms we had contributions for:

Spartacus, Vikings (incl. Punk Band AU!), The Americans, Once Upon A Time, My Little Pony, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Hook, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Demon’s Lexicon, Stargate Atlantis, My So-Called Life, The Hunger Games, Disney (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Mulan, Rapunzel), Sugar Rush, Please Like Me, A Song of Ice and Fire, Harry Potter (Shoebox Project), Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Legend of Korra, Gattaca, Doctor Who, My Mad Fat Diary, North & South, Firefly, The Good Wife, Teen Wolf, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek TNG, The X-Files, Night Vale, Fringe, Slings & Arrows, Orphan Black, Merlin, Star Wars, L.A. Complex, Dance Academy, Wentworth, White Collar, Poldark, Community, Fingersmith, Otherland, Penny Dreadful, Les Miserables, Bletchley Circle, The White Queen, Freier Fall, Latter Days, Sense8, Billy Elliot, Mistresses (UK), The Scarlet Pimpernel, and original fic.

In the "Most Drabbles Per Person" department, [info]amyriadfthings was the Girl on Fire this year with an amazing total of 33 drabbles and one or more contributions for every single prompt - we bow before your drabbling prowess! That Vikings Punk Band AU is definitely going places! (next up: pls to be getting the cast on board so we can get this on our screens, Y/Y? CANON FIX: NAILED IT!)

Second and third place went to your very sleepless mod [info]aldiara with 27 drabbles and to [info]amo_amas_amat with 26 drabbles - a very close margin indeed, too bad we didn't notice at the time, lol! (special props to Anna for her North & South series - one of my personal favs, period hooray - and for rocking the comments throughout the challenge! Such a star.)

Aaaand the rest of the tally was as follows:
[info]spaghettitoes - 24 drabbles (showed fabulous commitment to her Disney theme and made us snorfle coffee on our keyboards with her mad crack skillz!)
[info]lilithilien - 17 drabbles (while modding/organising, making gorgous banners, keeping a tally, commenting, chatting with co-mod, and prepping prompts - how many Lils are in your Clone Club?)
[info]notoriouslyuniq - 14 drabbles (incredible achievement considering she just finished a thesis and wasn't sure she could participate at all!)
[info]antiteb - 6 drabbles (proud lone representative of mainland Europe - we loved seeing her bring the Teen Wolf back!)
[info]alsha - 5 drabbles (drabbled and got major supportive commenting game on despite having just returned from a brutal 15-hour night shift!)
[info]geekchick1013 - 2 drabbles (sprinkled some very welcome last-minute angst sparkles on the challenge with 2 new fandoms!)

YOU'VE ALL DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE! (I'd apologise for the Sparty spam but triumphant gladiators really do express this best)

Thank you all SO MUCH for joining us in this wonderful creative messy madness - not just for churning out the drabbles and slaying us with crack and pain and poetry in exquisite 100-word morsels, but also for being fantastically supportive towards each other, cheering and commenting and being stars in every way. It's been an honour and we hope to see you next year!

Drabble Day results!

The results for our second somewhat-annual Drabble Day are in, and we can only say it was incredible! Despite technical issues, sleep deprivation, and general struggles with those tricky little things called words, there were 175 drabbles submitted in 45 different fandoms. That is 17,500 words, people. In 24 hours! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!


For the second year in a row, [info]aldiara claims the gold for writing 31 drabbles (nearly a third of them for the "Dead By Morning" prompt, the dirty cheater). [info]amyriadfthings was next with 29 drabbles, edging [info]lilithilien out of second place (also with 29 drabbles) by writing for every single prompt! *slow clap*

Honourable mentions go to [info]spagettitoes (26 drabbles), [info]winterlover (20 drabbles) and [info]amo_amas_amat (17 drabbles).

Prizes will be forthcoming as soon as we have the faintest clue what they are going to be ;)

We're over the moon about the variety of fandoms represented. We had drabbles from As the World Turns, Alien, Alles Was Zählt, Bandom, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Community, Dance Academy, Days of Our Lives, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Dr. Horrible, Elisabeth, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Hawaii 5-0, Hockey RPS, Homeland, Lord of the Rings, Maurice, Merlin, Misfits, Mountaineering RPS, My So-Called Life, Parade's End, Queer As Folk, Revenge, Robin Hobb’s Liveship Traders trilogy, Sandman, Slings & Arrows, Stargate Atlantis, Sugar Rush, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, The Dark Tower, The Demon's Lexicon, The Hunger Games, The L.A. Complex, The Princess Bride, The Shoebox Project, The Walking Dead, Torchwood, White Collar, Wicked, Xena and original fic. It’s fantastic to see that we’ve gone beyond our one-fandom obsession and brought in the diversity of all the different stories that we love (and are sometimes annoyed by).

So thanks for making Drabble Day the sleepless, relentless, super-prolific, cracky, utterly mad, sparkly explosion of creativity that it was! (doubtlessly by this time next year we'll have cycled back from "OMG so dead" and "ARE WE INSANE LET'S MAKE IT HALF AS MANY PROMPTS NEXT YEAR" to "hey, y'know what sounds fun? not sleeping for 24 hours and cussing incessantly over those 5 extra/missing words you just can't seem to cut/add!")

In the meantime, have yourselves a big round of applause:
