  • 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

Jim beamed as he handed over the plastic Spider-man lunchbox.

“I made you a tuna sandwich this time. It should be cold enough out for it to stay good until lunch. And I gave you an extra banana, because you need the potassium to keep your hands steady. Don’t eat the brownie first.”

Sebastian resisted the urge to roll his eyes, but this was just getting ridiculous. At first it had started with a sandwich in a bag when Jim asked him to do an all night stake-out, and Seb had thought it was a nice touch. It showed a level of casual concern for his employees that could really help out a crime boss; it made everyone feel that they had a personal stake in the success of the operation. But apparently Jim just liked feeding Seb, because he was the only one to get increasingly complicated lunches.

He took the proffered box and stuffed it into his duffle bags, along with all the disassembled pieces of his rifle. Hopefully no one would wonder where the homeless man begging for change got the Spider-man box; he didn’t need Jim’s eccentricities ruining his cover. Jim leaned over and planted a quick peck on Seb’s cheek.

“Thank you, darling. You’re so sweet; I bet your eyes taste like caramel. Now go shoot some people for me!”

Seb actually did roll his eyes this time, but only when he had his back turned. He did miss the decorum of the military sometimes, like the knowledge that a superior officer was unlikely to either kiss you or steal your eyes. But he took the bad with the good, and working for Jim did have its perks. The army had this real hang-up about using civilians for target practice.

He headed out for work, and had a fairly uneventful day. A lot of sitting on rooftops and watching people. That’s what snipers always did, but this time he didn’t get to pull the trigger, so he just ended up feeling like a gargoyle. Around noon, he opened the lunchbox, speculating about whether Jim just packed his lunch so that Seb wouldn’t have to leave his post all day.

The tuna sandwich didn’t actually have any bread, so it was just a blob of tuna, lettuce and tomato wrapped in plastic. The first banana had a syringe jammed in the middle of it, but the second was safe. The yogurt cup had a smiley face painted on the top. The brownie was full of glass, but big enough pieces to avoid. A typical Jim lunch.

And of course, the note. Seb wanted to hunt down and strangle whichever shop owner had sold a grown man My Little Pony stationary. The note had the usual tone to it.

“Dear Sebbie,

I hope you like this little lunch I made you! I want to make sure that my glowy red eye in the sky always has lots of nutrition when he goes out to kill for me. I don’t think I tell you this enough, but I love your hands. I want to cut off all the skin and tendons and wear them as stylish gloves. If you fail me, I will make a whole suit out of you, and people will salute me and call me Colonel.

I’m making chicken for dinner, so don’t be late.

Mwah mwah mwah, lots of kisses,


Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

This is hilarious and yet ALL kinds of creepy.

Honestly, it's so unbalanced and so like him that I can hear his voice reading that letter, sing-a-song intonations and everything! I don't know if I want to laugh or be more than a little disturbed! XD

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful! Sebastian's life must never be boring, I guess! XD

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

Ah, creepy Jim/Seb romance. What more to ask? Loved the final note!

OP Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

“Thank you, darling. You’re so sweet; I bet your eyes taste like caramel. Now go shoot some people for me!”

*applauds* Literally!

Dear god this is more brilliant than I ever could have hoped! Moriarty is an absolutely cracked madman, and still strangely sweet. Thank you, and I hope you consider posting it somewhere off-meme and linking it to the comms because this jewel of glorious crack should be shared with everyone!

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

hahahaha i love this

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring


That was glorious.

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

THIS! is amazing!

I'm going with other commenters, your Moriarty-voice is ludicrously perfect. Am bookmarking this for whenever I need a dose of crazy/wonderful!

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

I LOVE Seb's lunch! A tuna sandwhich, a brownie with a little extra something- but not the little extra something you'd think. So fantastically unbalanced. I love it.

Re: Mini Fill: Cooking is Caring

Y'know. I wasn't actually going to read this fill after I read the prompt because I thought "Oh, that just doesn't even need anything else."
However, I am now very glad that I did, as this is so absolutely unbalanced that it's had me laughing manically at literally every line break.

"The brownie was full of glass, but big enough pieces to avoid." Probably the most entertaining line I've read all week, and I do read quite a lot! ^^
