Carry On Countdown 2021
Hello hello! The time for the annual 2021 Carry On Countdown is finally upon us. If you're new to the event, welcome! The Carry On Countdown is a fandom hosted, month-long 'countdown' to the beloved Chapter 61 Snowbaz anniversary for the Simon Snow Trilogy by Rainbow Rowell. The event begins on November 25th and features daily prompts to help inspire all sorts of fan-created content as we draw closer and closer to the anniversary date on December 24th.
In order to give everyone who wishes to participate enough time to prepare, the prompt list for this year's COC will be posted a month before the event begins, on October 25th. Content for the Carry On Countdown can be just about anything you wish to create! We encourage fanfiction, fanart, cosplay, memes, songs, playlists, crafts, etc. The prompts are completely up to your own interpretation and can be used in your content however you like, but if you're confused or have any questions concerning the prompts, please send us an ask so we can try to help clear things up for you.
Please feel free to participate in as many or as few of the days of the event as you wish. Completing every daily prompt for the COC is not mandatory, although anyone who does will earn a special spot on our "Page of Honour" once the event has concluded.
As you may know, the COC is a fan-created and fan-run event, and we once again have a wonderful team of admins who are busy organizing, preparing, and helping everything to run smoothly this year.
We have two main admins, Raegan and Mishti, whose brief introductions can be found below.
Raegan: Hi loves! I'm Raegan from @carryonmylovelies and this is my second year being an admin for the Carry On Countdown. I've been in the fandom and have been obsessed with snowbaz since 2017, and I'm so thrilled to see what kind of cool and sexy things everyone creates for the COC this year <3
Mishti: Hi guys!!! This is me, Mishti, from @makedonsgriva and I'm so so excited to be a part of the countdown for the first time!!! It just feels so cool that I am getting to be a part of this beautiful custom that takes place in our fandom every year, and I hope everyone has a blast!!
We also have the addition of 3 ghost admins who will be working very hard behind the scenes of the COC to ensure everything goes well. We are all so excited for this event to begin!
This is the 6th consecutive year that the fandom has hosted the Carry On Countdown and is the first COC to occur with the entire, completed Simon Snow trilogy! We hope everyone who is planning on participating the best of luck, we hope everyone enjoys the amazing content from all the incredible creators that is soon to come, and that you please remember we are here and our askbox is always open for any questions you may have concerning this event. The hashtags we strongly recommend using with posts relating to the countdown are #Carry On Countdown and #COC 2021.
Stay tuned for the COC 2021 prompt list on October 25th!
The admins of the 2021 Carry On Countdown <3

Welcome to episode infinity of Anna cannot depict metaphors or understand the meaning of creative writing choices:
Can anyone describe to me in immense and clear detail why Wayward son begins with an epilogue and More Importantly - ENDS with a prologue???
I honestly don’t get it- like maybe it is a reference to the end of Carry On? But that only explains the “epilogue” not the prologue.
Also the epilogue is in third person while the prologue is in first person. I just don’t understand and my autism brain is wired to the point where I cannot trust my own gut when it comes to metaphors. Also, I can point out minor details but can’t string them together.
@rainbowrowell I would love your reasoning behind this but also if anyone else has any thoughts please add them.
