Prompting: Part IV
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.
+Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 2500 and 4500 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!

Renaissance Italy!fic.

WHY! do i love this prompt so much!??!?!


Shit YEAH! Yes! In Florence!

The Medici would have NOTHING on Mycroft. Hell Maybe he is one of them. Mycroft de' Medici anyone?

I can't help but see Sherlock as a muse. Renaissance Florence! Art! Come on people! Just look at that face!

John? Maybe he is the artist commissioned to immortalize Sherlock's beauty for the ages? Or is he the Medici family physician?

*FLAILS* IDEK! I just love the prompt!

Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

I fail at Renaissance clothing because DESPITE studying it I thought the fashion was atrocious, lol. ANYWAYS, this is so not accurate at all. I should have done more research but HEY I figured this was for fun, no stress right? I had fun doodling this, now I want to draw them all Regency era...

Also I apologize, I couldn't bring myself to make their hair period-compliant. slkdfj I SUCK AT PROMPT FILLS, SORRY. *LAME*

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

oh my god they're gorgeous. <3

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

Thank you! I am so glad you like it! :)

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

Ohmygosh. You do not suck at prompt fills. You own them.

This is fantastic!

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

GLORIOUS! I love both the prompt and the fill because I'm an art history major who studied abroad in Florence. Yaaay!

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

now I want to draw them all Regency era


I would drool over a picture like this of them in any era. Hot damn. My inner fashion historian just jizzed it's pants a little.

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

OH MY GOD. REGENCY ERA ahhhhhhhhhh seriously I get so geeky and pleased when it comes to Regency fashion.

Also, I use to not care about period fashion until I took costume design classes and turned into a giant fashion nerd. I love researching this stuff! I am always pleased to meet a fellow fashion history fan! *_*

So yeah anyways, I want to draw Sherlock looking all disheveled and in a waistcoat or tailcoat or something, all open and rumpled with a riding crop. I AM TOTALLY DOING IT.

And sorry this is a really really long comment. D:

PS: Your icon is quite possibly the best thing I have ever seen in my life. <3333

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

Holy fuck- this is bloody fantastic!

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

Wow. I actually found this during a history lesson... on the renaissance. XD I had to stop from giggling out loud. But, I'm sure my history teacher appreciates my renewed attention due to now happily imagining them as private physician/detective to the Medicis. :D

Re: Prompt Filled w/ Fanart...hope thats ok?

This is my new desktop background. Harrr. <3

If anyone writes out a fic-fill, can we please, please, PLEASE have a language barrier? I'm sick of reading historic pieces that take place in Italy where everyone speaks modern Italian. Can't we have;

Anselmo/Sherlock; /speaking Napolitan
Anselmo: /speaking Tuscan? How about Fiorentino? Do you know Sicilian?
Giuseppe: Dude, just speak Latin.

As an Italian, I find the idea of Sherlock speaking Napolitan hilarious. XD

PS It's not Giuseppe, it's Giovanni. ;)

Sherlock speaking Napolitan hilarious

Can you explain why, please?

My Sicilian great-grandmother used to say people should "Affa Napoli" which was a bastardization of "Go to Naples" or "Go to Hell".

She hated people from Naples. I know that Naples has a totally different dialect, but is there a connotation? to being Neapolitan?

(but wouldn't it make more sense that the Holmes would be from Rome or Florence if it was the Renaissance? You could totally swap them out for the Medicis or the Borgias/history teacher mode.)

Re: Sherlock speaking Napolitan hilarious

I simply find the Neapolitan accent funny, like I find the Venetian accent funny. I love dialects and these two always crack me up, even if I don't understand what's being said. (My dialect is completely different.)

A lot of people hate Naples and its citizen. Italy has a long tradition of North-South hate, and Naples is, so to speak, the centre of it. Maybe because it was the capital of the old Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and used to be a rich and splendid city, whereas now it's extremely poor and full of problems. There are also a lot of prejudices about its inhabitants: "Neapolitan" has become a synonym for someone cunning, typically a thief, or a lazy slob who'll do anything to avoid work.

As for Renaissance, yes, Rome and Florence were definitely the richest cities, and most of the art and literature masterpieces of the time come from there. I don't thing language was such a huge barrier, though, unless we're talking about very poor people who couldn't read and only spoke dialect. That's the time when the modern Italian language was born: the Divine Comedy does sound funny to a 21st century ear, but it's still understandable.
