This community's goal is to forge friendships between Librarians fans.
Focused on the things tumblr doesn't provide:
Links, references, but most of all: discussion!
No bashing. No character bashing, no ship bashing, no writer bashing. Be nice to each other! So far, this fandom has been a really fun place without hate. Let's keep it that way.
Fic posting rules:
You are of course welcome to post your own fic or rec other people's fic in this community. Feel free to add character and pairing tags as required.
Please don't make more than one post per fic. If you have multi-chapter fic to post, ask people to track updates on ao3 or in your own journal.
Instructions for tumblr users:
1. Get a dreamwidth account - it's free and easy!
Advantages: log in and stay logged in, you get notifications when someone replies to your comment, you can track tags and posts.
You can use this community without a dw account, anonymously or using OpenId, so if you want to skip step one, go ahead and introduce yourself right away:
2. Introduce yourself!
Comment to this post and tell us about yourself. Where do you hang? Give us your tumblr url, or maybe you have an ao3 or ff.net account. Who are your favorite Librarians?
3. Have fun!
Post any and all Librarians-related content. Post your fic, your fanart, your gifs, start discussions, feel at home.
Last year, we were inundated with trailers, and this year, this is all we get? Or did I just miss them?
As far as I know, the cast hasn't been to any Cons this year, either.
If you have any other video clips, I'd be happy to see them here!
Anyway, I am just stopping by to let you guys know that there is a fic exchange for medium-sized fandoms (fandoms that no longer qualify for yuletide but are not "megafandoms" as listed on their megafandoms list, updated yearly) called Not_Primetime. This year, The Librarians has been nominated, and sign-ups are open!
Here is the sign-up post with more information!
All of our main cast were nominated, and it's AND matching, but you can also request Any Character if you really mean Any Character. (It means Any nominated Character.)
If you'd like more explanation than the post gives you, I can try. I've participated in these things a bunch of times.
You'll need to offer and request at least two other fandoms and at least one character (up to four) for this exchange. You can find out everything that is eligible in the tag set.
You'll need an AO3 account to participate, and if you need one, I can get you an invite code. Just let me know in the comment section and we'll work out how to contact you.
Librarians certainly qualifies for inclusion. Go prompt and fill; all pairings accepted, no specific kinks need to be specified (the rules even allow gen). Comments, both prompts and fill replies, must be made anonymously, but you can host your actual fills at your own journals/AO3 account. You can see more details at the mod post.
I'm a bit rusty in my icon making skills (its literally been years) so I referred to a lot of templates/tutorials. I apologize in advance for the lack of creativity with some of these.
( I went a little text crazy... )

Luckily, the Curtain's not all that final, the Librarians have been renewed for season 3!
(If you're reading this post months later and feel like jumping in, please do.)
The majority of people said they couldn't commit to anything else beside Yuletide, so we decided to run the gift exchange for Valentine's day! I'm already looking forward to it.
A nice and quiet December for you all, and good luck with those Yuletide stories!
That said, seeing things flow a bit better in the intended episode order has gotten me thinking...
I was wondering if anyone had a clearer idea of the timeline on the show so far than I have gleaned? I get the impression that the show wants to sync up more or less with real time, but that is as much as I've been able to understand. I realize that if the show decides to fill in any of the gap during the hiatus / season break that any speculation might turn out to be incorrect, but I just thought I might try to start a discussion / note-keeping thread that might assist myself and anyone else in placing events in order and in relative timescale to each other.
In 2.01 The Drowned Book, the opening scene shows this timestamp:
And later, when Jake, Cassandra, and Ezekiel are talking before the conclusion of the episode, Jake mentions "the three months we were on our own." I wasn't sure whether to take this to mean that they spent a full three months in Peru before going their separate ways or that they had only been on their own three months since the conclusion of Season 1 and that Peru hadn't taken very long. Given that most of their cases seem to take only a day or two at most, I was leaning toward the latter but was unsure based on my earlier thought that it seems like the show wants to stay lined up with something that almost resembles real time? I can't imagine what might have taken three months in Peru, but it doesn't seem completely beyond the realm of possibility.
I would have tacked this onto one of the episode discussions, but I thought that it might qualify as its own separate discussion both of past episodes and of those that air in the future.
Is there any time contextualizing information you have noticed? Or do you have any educated guess headcanons about the time between extant episodes (at the time you're reading this) or during the break between seasons?
We envision something easy and low-key. Everyone could post a request (for fic or art or either) and then everyone who made a request claims someone else's request and thus (in theory) everyone gets something.
Let us know what you think about that:
Would you participate in a Librarians gift exchange?
I'm already doing Yuletide, so no
I'm doing Yuletide, but still yes
I would but I can't write (i.e. only if gifts other than fic are allowed)
What would be your favorite gift reveal/posting date?
New Year's Eve
Earlier than Christmas
Later than New Year's Eve
I don't care
If you have a better idea, let us know in the comments!
