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... )

A Very Important Announcement

Greetings, oh drabblers and dreamers, creators of stories and lovers of... what do you call it... fanfic? It is I, Hermes, herald of the Gods, here with a message from your Overlords:

"Beware the 29th of May."


I think that's it.

*looks at back of paper*

No, nothing there. Just "beware the 29th of May."

Well, that's not very informative, is it. I swear, sometimes the Divine can be so vague. Is Zeus planning to wreak havoc upon the world of mortals? Are the gates of Hades to burst open allowing the souls of the dead to spill out? Or is it just going to rain and get your head a bit damp? I DON'T KNOW. I'm just the messenger.

All I can advise is that you don't make any plans for the weekend of May 29th, because Something Will Happen and Things Will Change.

Hermes, out!

Thank you all so much for coming out and participating in this madness, despite family obligations and overwhelming feels and other interferences! You were amazing in rising to the challenge of TWO prompts an hour. There is clearly nothing we can't do! Please feel free to keep drabbling until Eurovision starts (because we meant to have that extra hour, uh huh). We will do some tallying and proper announcements in a day or two, once we have recovered a bit and slept approximately seventy hours.

But for now...

And don't forget, in one hour...

See you there!

An Important Message From Your Overlords


For that's the day the madness will begin...

(Only a little madness. We promise.*)

Commencing at the precise hour of 11:00 GMT on 4th November, and continuing until 23:00 GMT on that same date, twelve hours of drabbling shall take place. You are each expected to create a drabble each hour on an appropriate topic related to an assigned prompt.** The Overlords Mods shall announce said prompt at the start of each hour.***

As in previous years, drabbles will be limited to exactly 100 words and will be accepted for all pairings and all fandoms. However, in a slight deviation from previous years, Drabble Day entries may be submitted after the actual event. You may submit drabbles on designated topics until 10:59 GMT on 5th November.****

Further announcements will be made in the upcoming days. Remember, remember the date.

And remember: We are watching.*****

*Promises are not a guarantee of literal guarantees. The mods are fully indemnified in the case of any injury resulting from madness that may occur and no refunds shall be made due to any instances of temporary or permanent madness. The Overlords Mods may institute, encourage and/or reward madness in any form as they may see fit.

**All participation is strictly voluntary. We promise.

***More or less. Unless we are late.

****See, we promised only a little madness!

*****Things we are currently watching include Parks & Recreation, Orphan Black, The Legend of Korra, and Empire, among others.

Drabble Day 2015: Come One, Come All!

Hello shiny people! It's been a few years, but remember when we all went insane for 24 hours and furiously churned out a truly impressive word count in drabbles whilst running purely on caffeine and fandom sparkle?

Well, we're doing it again:

The challenge will start on Saturday, 3 October at noon (12pm) GMT and run for 24 hours. I think the correct times for some of the various time zones are as follows, but it's entirely possible I'm off somewhere (especially since it's mostly 4 October for Oz and NZ and we have daylight savings coming up, argh), so please double-check your time zone is correct in relation to GMT:

4am PST
6am CST
7am EST
12pm GMT
1pm CET
10pm AEST
12am NZST

As in previous years, we'll be accepting drabbles for all pairings, all fandoms, all ratings, absolutely anything you can think of - pretty much our only rule will be that a drabble = 100 words precisely.

We'll be posting closer to the time with a reminder of posting guidelines etc., and to announce the theme (we think you'll like it ;)).

Hope you can all join us for at least part of the madness!
