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

Prompts from this post can be filled on the Overflow Post

+Anon posting is most definitely allowed, but not required.
+All kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance--whatever. Go wild! :D
+Keep things neat! Read prompts before you post to see if something similar has already been done, and while you are encouraged to prompt as much as you like, try to fill as well.
+Please do not re-post prompts unless the last time they were prompted was on an older part. Simply put: ONE posting of each prompt per part.
+Until further notice, RPF (real person fic, i.e. fic involving the actors themselves) is not supported at this meme. UPDATE: sherlockrpf</lj> has set up an RPF meme post in their community. Anon posting is on, and that meme is free for you all to use.
+Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 5000 comments.
+However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. Also at 7000, a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.
+Multiple fills are encouraged! (: Just because a prompt has already been claimed by someone, do not be afraid to offer up a second fill.

The new Filled Prompts Post is officially up and running! I’d like to ask that you all are patient as we work out the bugs in the system, but other than that, please 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-- While a mod will do an archiving sweep every now and then, we don’t want to be putting every single fill in the post.
Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! Either of the mods would be happy to explain.

There are two mods for this meme. Your main mod is jjgd , and any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme should be directed to her via either PM or the page-a-mod post.
There is also an archivist: snowishness . If you have questions or concerns regarding the Filled Prompts Post (general questions, broken links, etc.) she can be reached on the page-a-mod post as well.

Guys, I will only put in one reminder about this.
Think before you prompt about the way you are asking. It isn’t difficult, and it will only take a minute or so of your time.

That 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 have rights to an opinion, of course, just as you have the right to scroll right past a prompt that you dislike.

Remember, guys; Be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

Sentient captcha, of sorts

Okay, if anyone's requested this, please let me know. (And it's kinda long)

Since captcha was commenting my last association ramble with "plectic1) laws" I'm convinced this thing is sentient. Or, in fact, Mycroft.

Let us have some Mycroft who for any reason has access to the internet and needs help to get out of trouble but cannot draw attention to himself in the normal ways. So he is lurking on John's blog or anywhere else where some kind of captcha is in use and first tries to arouse John's and his brother's attention by unusual words or phrases, then leaving little hints as to his situation and location or whatever. Of course he can't post too open hints, either, so there's loads of guessing what could make sense.
Actually this hasn't to be Mycroft who's manipulating captcha, maybe it's Sherlock. But I desperately want some Mycroft gen or getting it on with John, pwease?

BONUS: The boys (and Lestrade's team) are flooding some ridiculous forum somewhere just to get enough captcha contact. :D

To all this captcha says: "seem millowd" - I'll take that as encouragement.

1)Murray Gell-Mann on whatever he does: "What is most exciting about our work is that it illuminates the chain of connections between, on the one hand, the simple underlying laws that govern the behavior of all matter in the universe and, on the other hand, the complex fabric that we see around us, exhibiting diversity, individuality, and evolution. The interplay between simplicity and complexity is the heart of our subject."
Yep, that does sound like my brain's ramblings and connections inside and between fandoms

Re: Sentient captcha, of sorts

That's too funny. I was thinking about the captcha the other day when one of my words was "SJoHolmes". Seriously. Now, it makes sense that it would be Mycroft of awesomeness.

I heartily second this prompt because Mycroft is watching.

Re: Sentient captcha, of sorts

Captcha knows far too often what's going on and makes no sense whatsoever far too little. *nods*

Oh yes. And maybe Mycroft has even more nefarious purposes than just getting rescued. Who knows? Maybe Mycroft and Moriarty and Moran and Anderson are responsible for most of this meme? XD

I lovelovelovelove your icon! Is there a bigger version available, let's say, big enough for some t-shirt stencilling? *puppy dog eyes*

Re: Sentient captcha, of sorts

Seriously? Wow. Yes, I have a bigger version of it (it's 15 inches at 72dpi) but it's really rough because I just banged it together for icon size. You are more than welcome to it though.
Captcha is booffle covering. Really, Mycroft? Booffles?

Re: Sentient captcha, of sorts

Bonus points if the boys get SO BLOODY CONFUSED when they receive super/sub script and/or foreign letters?

Because seriously, Mycroft. Wtf.

Re: Sentient captcha, of sorts

And of course all those vertical miniature text things.

Now I'm tempted to refer to captcha as Mycroft. XD

Captcha: "stachow audit" - stachow's the name a guy with a stones cover band. *eyebrow* Are you trying to tell us you like the stones?
