For the activity this month we are continuing with the flower theme.

As you know, there are many poems that begin ‘Roses are red, violets are blue…’ We are going to rework that idea a little. We’re keeping the rhyming scheme but for this activity you can pick whatever flowers and colours you want for your poems!

Some examples:


Gardenias are white
Camellias are pink
It's a lovely bouquet
But you still drive me to drink


(Penned by a Mrs. S. Hudson)



Hydrangeas are blue-green
Speedwells are blue-grey
Mr. Holmes is undercover
As Queen of the May




Please leave all your poems in the comments!



As always, you needn’t take part in this activity if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.

Please see the profile for the full posting guidelines!

Title: Untold Cases (No. 1)
Length: 352
Rating: Gen
Content Notes: six one-sentence stories; abuse of semicolon, dashes, and other punctuation; the untold cases; Holmes & Watson only
Author's Note: On fffc there is a challenge of 31 one-word prompts to write 31 one-sentences stories for. We're only supposed to post there when we've done a whole table, but as I'm having a bit of a rotten day, I thought I'd share the first six (with a different flower mentioned in each). The fffc prompt is in bold. Each sentence stands alone.

The prompt for this month is:


Flowers



These could be the new spring flowers in a garden or a park. Flowers at a wedding—or at a funeral. There’s the language of flowers too, of course. Pressed flowers, or the Victorian enthusiasm for botany. Or it could be a gaggle of gals called Violet!


As always, you needn’t use the prompt if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.

While we're all getting used to our new lodgings, or, living in two places at once, like Dr Watson, living both at Baker Street and elsewhere, we'd like to take the opportunity of reminding you of some others who are also in the neighbourhood.

[community profile] watsons_woes have now moved to Dreamwidth permanently, and are currently discussing continuing with the annual JWP (July Writing Prompts) this year.  So do go and add your voice, and take the opportunity to write more about our lovely Dr Watson.

And although our elder brother comm [community profile] sherlock60 is currently only archiving, from August, when Round 6 begins [personal profile] alafaye will be taking up the reins and there will be posting on both Dreamwidth and Livejournal.

Sorry for the delay - I was taking a leaf out of Mr. Holmes' book (though without the explosions and setting fire to the curtains) and doing a few experiments to see exactly what happens when you import and reimport a comm from LJ to DW.

But my data is now complete and the Dreamwidth [community profile] holmes_minor is ready for business!

As with the LJ version, [community profile] holmes_minor is set to moderated membership. But of course everyone is welcome, and once you're accepted you can post whenever you want. So please feel free to use whichever version of the comm you're most comfortable with - or both. [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit and I will be active on both sides. Also, if it's OK with everyone, I would like to do regular reimports of the LJ comm over into DW for archiving purposes.

Whether it's on LJ or on DW, we hope everyone will continue to enjoy taking part in Holmes Minor!

We’re just coming up to Easter Sunday, so this month the activity is:



Easter Plot Bunnies



In the comments, in ten words or less, set free those bunnies! They needn’t be actually connected with Easter (unless you want them to be), and they can be as serious or as cracky as you like.


A couple of examples:


Mary doesn’t die.

Mrs. Hudson learns to ride the unicycle.



As always, you needn’t take part in this activity if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.
