Due South Flashfiction, aka DS Flashfiction, was a fanfiction challenge community on LiveJournal. It was the first of its kind, and has been the model for many other flashfiction communities, which have adopted its structure and challenge rules. [1]

DS Flashfiction was modeled on the wednesday100 and ff_friday communities.

From the community profile: "All ratings, all pairings, and any and all Rays you care to mention are welcome."

DS Flashfiction also hosted DS Match.

The most recent challenge was posted in October 2010 by China shop.[2]

In 2016 the comm was imported to dreamwidth. In 2019 a few fans participated in new challenges.

As of January 2021 the dreamwidth community has 2,692 posts and 64,932 comments.[3]
