STICKY POST



Welcome to the BBC Sherlock kink meme! We are pleased to have you here. If this is your first visit, please check out our FAQ. Before you start browsing and prompting, please take a moment to read this post; it was written to help you have an optimal experience here.

For any and all questions, comments, or concerns regarding any part of the meme, use the Page-A-Mod post after checking to see whether your question is answered in the FAQ.

General guidelines:

  • 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.
