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

  • 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.

Age difference kink (het)

So, this anon just stumbled across the synopsis for the Mary Russell stories (see in which a 60-something Sherlock Holmes apparently marries a woman about 40 years his junior, having first met her when she was 15 and he served as her "mentor and father substitute". I'm sure it's all very romantic in the actual books but on paper, as it were, it sounds distinctly creepy!

But this is a kink meme, so....

Age difference kink fic in which a Sherlock who is old enough for a state pension and a free bus pass seduces an innocent teenage girl who is infatuated with him (could be John's daughter for example), with some emphasis on the creepy. :)

Re: Age difference kink (het)

Sorry, no issues with the prompt in and of itself, but I just gotta say that Russell-verse Holmes isn't in his 60's. It's explained that Watson and ACD made him older in the published stories to make him look more 'respectable'.

But yeah, seconding the prompt. The age difference, while not quite as big, still has some iffy bits. Especially if you add in the fact that Holmes initially mistook Russell for a boy.

Ah, I probably got confused because wikipedia said he was nearing 70 in one of the stories, but that was probably a later one. Even so, there's the father figure becomes husband thing and her age to begin with (even if they don't marry until she's in her early twenties). It's something I don't often see explored as a kink. :)

Especially if you add in the fact that Holmes initially mistook Russell for a boy.

Aha, sublimating his repressed illegal homosexuality and seeking a more acceptable outlet for his lack of interest in grown women by marrying a tomboyish young woman whose suitability as a life partner he got an opportunity to shape by acting as a mentor at a relatively young age. hmm, I see... ;)

And I realize I am a bad person, projecting psychobabble onto these unfortunate stories based on the wikipedia page. I'm sure nothing was further from the author's mind beyond a bit of fannish wish fulfilment, and that the books are very enjoyable as detective mysteries. :D

I suspect my chances of a prompt fill are nil, but thanks for the conversation and correction!
