About the community

holmes100 is a drabble prompt community for the Sherlock Holmes fandom. All 'verses, characters, pairings, and ratings are welcome.

General Community Rules:

♦ This community is for posting Sherlock Holmes drabbles. Please do not post links to stories that are not related to Sherlock Holmes, or are not drabbles (as defined below). All 'verses and incarnations of the great detective are welcome here.

♦ This community is for Sherlock Holmes characters only. If you would like to post RPF drabbles, holmes_rpf will better suit your needs.

♦ Please do not post to advertise other communities or sites. These posts will be deleted immediately. If you would like to advertise these communities, please contact the mods first.

♦ Do not use icons depicting nudity, graphic or implied sex, or anything that could potentially get someone in trouble with their bosses, parents, etc.

♦ Be nice to other posters. Concrit is appropriate, but do it kindly. Flaming will not be tolerated and will result in the user being banned from the community.

♦ Ask questions if you are confused. You may either send a private message to one of the mods or leave a comment at any mod post. We will try to answer your question as quickly as possible.

♦ Everyone is welcome. Have fun!

How It Works:
♦ Every week, one of the mods will post a new prompt. Members of the community then write drabbles based on the prompt and post them to the community for our enjoyment. Drabbling on past prompts is fine. It is also appropriate to post drabbles that are not based on prompts generated by the community, as long as they are an appropriate length. If you are reposting old drabbles written before this community opened, please include all links/drabbles in one post (each with the appropriate header) and limit yourself to one or two posts.

♦ The drabbles should be 100 words even. Anything longer or shorter can and may be deleted.

♦ Use the correct heading for each drabble. Every drabble needs to go behind a cut, whether it contains adult material or not. For instructions on how to use an LJ-cut, refer to this guide. You may also post a link to the entry on your journal, if you wish.

♦ Please use correct grammar and spelling. Everyone makes mistakes, but please proofread your drabble before posting to ensure that we can read it.

♦ Please tag your posts with the prompt (e.g. author: tailoredshirt, prompt: watson's cane). You may also include rating, character, or genre tags if you like. The community tags are created by the mods, which means that you have to choose preexisting tags from the list. If you would like to request additional tags, then just respond to a mod post and let us know.

Header Template

If you prefer not to use this guide, then please make sure that the rating system you do use is easy to understand.
