Prompting Part XXXII
Giggles at the Palace
sherlockbbc_fic
Please check the Sticky Post to find the newest active part and post your prompts there.


GUIDELINES
  • Anon posting is not required, but most definitely allowed. If you think you recognise an anon, keep it to yourself and don’t out them. IP tracking is off, and will remain that way.
  • Multiple fills are encouraged, and all kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance — whatever. Go wild! :D
  • Don’t reprompt until TWO parts after the last posting of the prompt.
  • RPF (real person fic, i.e. fic involving the actors themselves) is not supported at this meme.
  • Concrit is welcome, but kinkshaming, hijacking, and flaming are not tolerated.

THE FILLED PROMPTS POST
When you fill a prompt, please use the appropriate Filled Prompts Post to archive your fill (there are instructions on the actual post).

If the part you wanted isn't up yet, just wait and one of the archivists will get to it, but please, once it is up, make sure you post your fills there according to the guidelines. DO NOT skip out on doing this because it seems like too much effort. If you want your fill to make it to the Delicious archive, that’s the way to do it.

Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods will be happy to explain.

WARNINGS/OFFENSIVE WORDING IN PROMPTS
Please consider warning for prompts that may trigger people (and also for fills, because some people read in flat view) and phrasing prompts in a manner that strives to be respectful.

Things which you might want to consider warning for include: Rape/Non-Con, Death, Suicidal Thoughts, Self-Harm, Underage Relationships, among others.

That being said, this is a kink meme. As such, there will be prompts that could offend you in a number of different ways. Not every prompt will have a trigger warning, and not every prompt will rub you the right way. If you have an issue with a specific prompt, feel free to bring it up in a discussion that takes place off the meme. However, flaming will not be tolerated regardless of origin.

You are highly encouraged to scroll past any prompt that you dislike.

Remember: be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

THINGS THAT MAKE BROWSING THE MEME EASIER FOR EVERYONE
Please nest your fills. Doing so will make it easier for archivists to save your fills to the Delicious archive. Using subject lines will also help people reading the meme in flatview keep track of what’s happening. Finally, titling your fills (even if it’s something silly) will be helpful to those tracking a lot of prompts or scrolling through the meme.

PROMPT FREEZES
Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 2000 and 4500 comments. However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. After the 7000 comments freeze, a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.

CONTACTING MODS
Your mods for this meme are ellie_hell, charname, anonspock and anonbach. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to send a PM or contact us via the Page-A-Mod post.

Re: Fill: Sans Frontières (3b/?)

There was a mindset John had often got into during the war, one in which he stopped thinking about the person beneath his hands as a friend and comrade and thought about them as nothing more than a body. Remove all emotional attachment – treat them as if they are simply an illness to be cured, an injury to be fixed, not a human being with thoughts and feelings and hopes and dreams.

“Check his blood pressure.” John instructs, pushing the stretcher away from the wall so that he might access the body from all angles. His fingers move quickly, now, without any sign of a shake – the breathing is rapid, shallow. The hands look dead – may require amputation, but John will have to see what he can do. The cuts and bruises are, for the most part, easy to deal with. Any internal injuries John will not know about, not without feeling along the torso for anything out of place.

It is the knee, though, that truly brings him concern. Compound fractures prove difficult, even in places with outstanding medical facilities. Here, there is little John can do. No doubt it will be infected – septic, if the other signs John has picked up on are accurate. John can certainly make do and get the bone back in place, get the skin stitched back together, but that would simply condemn the patient to an agonising death. He can’t seal the infection inside and allow it to tear the person apart – he simply can’t.

Though John has been running on autopilot ever since feeling that painfully alive pulse, he now has time to stop. Maria has obediently been doing the basic tasks John left her with, though when his running commentary stops, she looks nervously up at him.

“He needs to be moved.” John says seriously, returning his attention to the swollen hand closest to him. These he can try and do something with – save them, maybe. “We don’t have the facilities to treat him here.”

Maria stares at John, looking very much out of her depth – and for a woman whose sole task is to preach birth control, that much is to be expected. “Will he survive?” She asks, eyes wide.

“He won’t if he stays here.”

OP again

ffff perfection.
I love that John has to detatch from being too personal about it and then gets all logical, and I can't wait for the next part.

thank you, thank you!
you're such a sweet op :)
i hope you keep enjoying this!

I love all the medical terminology in this :kisses: it's usually a glossed over thing in fic and ngh, just how John works, and Sherlock's haze...

Re: Fill: Sans Frontières (3b/?)

oh, really? i've been relying on google for medical terminology, i really have no idea what i'm talking about - glad to see it's coming across well, though. :)
and thank you so much for the lovely comment!
