Prompts from this post can be filled on the Overflow Post

IMPORTANT! Spoilers for aired episodes are now being allowed on this area of the meme, without warning. If you do not want to encounter spoilers, please prompt at our Spoiler-Free Prompt 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.
+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 2000 and 4500 comments.
+However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. Also at 7000, after the freeze 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 or written by someone, do not be afraid to offer up a second fill.
+re: hijacking.

Please refrain from hijacking a prompt. Hijacking may be defined as responding to a prompt by taking a portion of it and adding your own ideas about what should be added, changed or eliminated. In addition, commenting with off topic jokes or chatter.

By hijacking, the focus of the prompt can be lost, and inappropriate threads created. By doing this fillers may be discouraged which is something no one wants to experience.

If a prompt leads you to an original idea, please create your own prompt. The chatter or love posts are the proper places to share jokes or talk about prompts that have inspired you.
(prepared by anonymous)

Put links to your fills here. There are instructions on the actual post. I ask that 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, 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.
Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods would be happy to explain.

Your mods for this meme are snowishness, marill_chan and ellie_hell. 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.

Please consider warning for triggery prompts (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 right past a prompt that you dislike.

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

Bizarre World

We need something lighthearted. Let’s write a bizarre AU where everyone traded places, shall we? But try to be as surprising as possible. No easy mirror changes.

E.g.: Sally is witty, sarcastic, a genius and a consulting detective in need of decent flatmate. Mycroft is an army doctor recently invalided from Afghanistan, who doesn’t want to depend on his alcoholic cousin Mike. Fortunately one day Clara, an old friend, spots him in park. He meets Sally and her landlord Jefferson Hope. Sally proceeds to drag him to crime scene, complaining that some Janette won’t work with her. After brief confrontation with Sergeant Moran, they are allowed to go into building, where DI Sherlock Holmes is waiting impatiently over body of beautiful woman in dark green clothes (which just might turn out to be named Anthea).

Sally impresses Mycroft with her skills, then abandons him. Mycroft returns to his flat, only to find that someone is waiting for him with tea. An ambiguous discussion with short, blonde man who is wearing jumper, smiling pleasantly and might or might not be an criminal mastermind is the result. When he and his PA Irene leave, Mycroft is left eyeing tea suspiciously, wondering if it’s poisoned. That's when Sally shows up at his doorstep with green suitcase…

And so on. Anderson is the cabbie serial killer, a mysterious ‘Sawyer’ put him up to it, Greg Lestrade is only man to ever fool Sally, Jim Moriarty works at local clinic, the blonde man – John Watson – is apparently long-time friend, self-appointed big brother and British Government, etc.

You can come up with your own combination, and then write a scene or two, retaining a much as possible from original character while fitting them into another’s place. So, Sherlock would be almost as brilliant as Sally, but The Work is still his priority and that's why he prefers to call on his consultant, who can do things police can’t (like breaking into suspect’s home) that greatly speed up the whole investigation (the alternate theory is that he enjoys having his home broken in and free tea by courtesy of British Government far too much ;)). He’s still condescending, demanding and general consensus is that he and Sally deserve each other very much. John, instead of kidnapping people, freaks them out with surprise tea parties. And so on.

TL;DR: AU where all characters traded places, which leads to completely bizarre result. Now make it work.
