A new month begins today, which means we have a new theme for FANFIC FRIDAY! We recommend you get yourself big amounts of chocolate ice cream because it’s time for Hurt/Comfort July! We asked you on Twitter and the first fandom to be chosen for July is BBCSherlock.
[tabs] [tab title=”NOTE“]As we did last year, we are doing an exception for the Friday during San Diego Comic-Con, when we will share fics that take place in conventions. This theme is not very common, so we would totally appreciate it if you helped us by sending us a few of your suggestions![/tab] [/tabs]
