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

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!

Tam Lin fusion (also kind of Midsummer Night's Dream if you squint)

Sherlock Holmes was kidnapped by the faeries in the 19th century. The "queen" of the fairies, a man known as Moriarty, is quite struck with him and takes him as his consort, but Sherlock refuses to cooperate. The king, Moran, is wildly jealous of him. It has been like this for two hundred years.

John Hamish Watson, of Scottish ancestry, visits a deserted castle while in the country (can be England, Scotland or Ireland, whichever fits best) on holiday. Everyone he meets tells him not to go there, including his family, but it is the ancestral property of the Watsons and he wants to see it.

While there, he plucks a solitary rose, thinking he'll take it to that pretty girl he met in a cafe yesterday (or whoever anon wants). He doesn't expect a beautiful man to appear in front of him, wearing old-fashioned clothes, and suddenly deduce everything about him just by looking.

They become friends, and eventually John saves him at the Halloween procession, as in the original story. Eventual slash is preferred but I'll take friendship too.

Bonus: Bored!Sherlock has been solving cases from Faerie the entire time he's been trapped there, but can't tell anyone about them.

Extra bonus: John introduces Sherlock to modern technology and he understands it in an instant and quickly becomes better at using it than John is.

Up to anon: Sherlock can be human, or he can be the half-human or changeling child of a faery.

It's like... it's like my dream prompt, OP. Perfect prompt is absolutely perfect.

Seconded until the end of time!

Re: Tam Lin fusion (also kind of Midsummer Night's Dream if you squint)

Whoa. I... I wrote my thesis about this tale, anon. How similar do you want this to be? Are you looking for m-preg here?

Re: Tam Lin fusion (also kind of Midsummer Night's Dream if you squint)

asdfdksj really THAT IS SO AWESOME! I want to do that now *aspiring folklorist* Um... veering from the original is definitely fine by me, do whatever you want to twist it :D And I would prefer no m-preg. I just love the idea of even a friendship between abducted by fairies!Sherlock and human!John, and I've always loved the whole "changed into different animals" part where Janet (or however the version spells it) holds on no matter what. Other than that, go wild.

Re: Tam Lin fusion (also kind of Midsummer Night's Dream if you squint)

Haha, thanks! Because I've never written m-preg before and don't think I'd be very good at it, but I always love the bit where the knight tells Janet he'll claim the baby as his and Janet just goes "hmm... nah, going to abort it, thanks all the same".

I'm busy at work right now but I'll get started on this over the weekend. (Kind of tempted to write it in medieval Scots, but don't worry, I won't be that much of a dick.)

It looks like I would have been a good detective - I've finally found this prompt! I've been looking for it for quite a while after having lost it :-)
If you're still checking this page, here's a fill for you - http://sherlockbbc.livejournal.com/4979671.html (I had only vague memories of the story you were asking for, sorry if some detail is missing.)
