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.

John meets Mr. Holmes, Johnlock? TW: Depression, Suicidal thoughts?

John finally meets Mr. Holmes and the man is nothing like he imagined him to be. Mr. Holmes is much like himself, intelligent, but nothing like his sons or ex-wife. He is warm and empathetic and is the kind of man who appreciates life and the weight it has on some decisions. The perfect father type.

But Mr. Holmes is sad and lonely, horribly depressed and convinced that he, and John, mean absolutely nothing to the rest of the Holmes. He couldn't bare the coldness of his wife, the silent treatment from Mycorft, or being treated as an inferior by Sherlock. The people that mean the most to him hate him, so he made sure to leave and stay way from them. He was never needed in their lives.

He's aware that John exists, and feels that he should meet this man and determine his relationship to his son. Being a 'normal' person who realizes the world doesn't revolve around him, Mr. Holmes makes sure to meet John at the clinic and to talk to him once he is done with work or on break. He will not enter Sherlock's home because knows he's not welcomed.

He likes John, and John makes him think of his younger self fallowing after his ex. He likes John enough to tell him the bitter, hurtful truth: "My advice to you is to not get involved further with my son. Feelings mean nothing to him. To either of them. We are only an annoyance."

It would be nice to see a real, but slow, friendship bloom between John and Mr. Holmes as well as show how Sherlock and Mycroft really feel about their father who they haven't had contact from in years (though that doesn't mean they haven't secretly been keeping up).

I want something depressing and bittersweet guys. Mr. Holmes hasn't been in a good place for awhile and I'm sure interacting with John would be a good place to start.
