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

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!

Fill: Voices in my Head

Dear Anon: This is my first completed foray into Sherlock (BBC) fic, by way of Doctor Who. I am a little nervous.

(Warning: Hints of emotional and physical abuse towards a child.)

There are voices in her head. There are always voices in her head, and she's fine with them now. Slithery, rasping, deep, hollow ones, grinding into her head and twisting.

"Don't trust him dangerous never trust the doctor is the enemy and must be destroyed that is what you are weapon weapon weapon."

The words hurt at first, a jumbled mess of spite that, later, she's able to detect the hatred in. But for now, it hurts, but it always hurts. She's not really alone--there's also someone nearby, somewhere--but it isn't until later that she realises she's alone in the all the ways that matter.

For now, she knows that Madame Kovarian is the closest thing she has to a mother, and that she knows one thousand, three hundred, and forty-six ways to kill the Doctor before breakfast, and four hundred and three ways to gain his trust along the way.

She is five years old.


The training for the second man starts four months later. There is no warning, only: "Now you have a second enemy that you will destroy."

A man with violent eyes and a mad smile watches her from the shadows as she is debriefed.

She accepts it. She is a good weapon.

The new enemy is Sherlock Holmes, and he is a genius, and cruel. He will grind the Earth to dust in his pursuit of what he believes is right. He must be stopped.

But she will not be killing him, not like the Doctor. No, this man's destruction will be through different methods. Emotional ones. (Though she's always believed there's something emotional about death, but she thinks this quietly because no matter how good she is at what she does--and she is very good--they will hurt her to correct her mistakes and misconceptions.)

They send her forward to the twenty-first century. The Silence slowly erodes the Ambassador's memory until he forgets what his true daughter looks like. It is easy to slide into Claudie Bruhl's life and make it her own.

The supposed kidnapping goes as planned, as does the rescue. She is taken to Scotland Yard. She stares at nothing, her face carefully blank.

She waits.

The door opens, and Sherlock Holmes enters.

She focuses on the table, rocks enough to make the performance genuine, and listens to his footsteps. She looks up at him as he says, "Claudie, I--"

She screams.

She screams, and screams, and screams, the sounds peaking into hysteria, as he mumbles, "No, no, I know it’s been hard for you, Claudie, listen to me--" She points at him, adding insult to injury.

Plant the seed of suspicion in their minds, little girl, the man with the violent eyes had said, and his downfall will come.

I am no little girl, she had replied, and his mad smile had widened.

Sherlock Holmes' face is pale, bewilderment briefly cracking through his professional façade. No matter his thoughts on people and the world at large, he is not used to children screaming at him when they first see him.

He is dragged from the room, DI Lestrade shouting at him, and she knows she has succeeded.


They return her to the orphanage soon after, and that's when everything unravels.

"Your mother your mother will be there and she will hurt you she will always hurt you do not trust her do not trust the doctor trust only us."

She stares into her mother's eyes, down the barrel of the gun her mother has pointed at him.

The shot is louder than she expected.

And when she feels the regeneration tugging inside, twisting and reshaping her insides, twisting everything that she recognises about herself, she focuses on the thoughts she's repeating to herself, over and over, so her new self will remember them.

I am Melody Pond, and I am a good weapon.

I am Melody Pond. I destroyed Sherlock Holmes and I will kill the Doctor.

Re: Fill: Voices in my Head

Oh, wow! That is an insanely creative premise. Planting River Song as Claudie - that's diabolical. Wonderful idea, and very well played out. <3
