Prompting Part XXXIV
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.

Sunday 2/3

AN so maybe they did a bit of whoring. I guess I'll leave that up to you to decide. Its boarding school, everyone is insane in English boarding schools.

“Pass it here.”
Its Sunday afternoon and they’ve been blowing smoke rings through the rounds of their lips, tilting their heads to watch them begin to dissipate. The smoke continues through the window, swung open an hour ago to air the room.
“Get your own,” John ignores the lazy curl of a long hand, pale in a blur of smoke, that hangs, expectant under the cigarette between his lips.
“I’m all out,” comes the reply. Its consonants are sharp, vowels round between the bow of his lips. It pouts.
“That’ll be you and your bloody chain smoking.”
Sherlock frowns at the accusation, even as John laughs, shuffling his weight a little from where it rests slouched against the wall. He hands the lit cigarette to Sherlock, who takes a long drag and watches John. Sherlock exhales, bottom lip curling out to blow the smoke in a screen over his eyes.
The pack of cigarettes emerges, victorious, from the folds of the slouchy army jacket, sleeves pushed up around John’s forearms. John waves it in front of him in case Sherlock missed it, and eventually fumbles a cigarette out. He giggles as his fingers slip.
Sherlock, who is watching, giggles too, he can’t help it. The high is soaking in the back of his bones and making his breaths new. “You are completely incompetent.”
“You’re completely incompetent,” shoots back John. There is a pause. Sherlock leans to stub the lit cigarette out. John, leaning against Sherlock’s slide slightly,turns his head to the side and becomes preoccupied with the curve of Sherlock’s neck as he leans. He drags a curled finger down the side of it until he finds the spot that makes Sherlock gasp a little, and leans fully to press his mouth over it.
Wet lips and hot tongue make Sherlock sigh and bare his neck completely, curls pressed against the wall, head tilted back. Wanting.
John pulls back after a moment, the slick sound of his lips parting next to Sherlock’s ear the only prelude to John nudging up the side of his neck to sneak a bite to his earlobe. Sherlock jumps and pushes John’s head away halfheartedly, laughing. John tries for it again, lazy, cheeky grin tugging at his reddened lips. He snaps his teeth together as Sherlock employs both hands tangled in the bright blond of John’s hair to keep the bites at bay.
John wrestles the hands from his hair and relaxes a little, cigarette still between his fingers. Sherlock does too, leaning back against the wall again, slow smile lingering as he watches John carefully.
John, Sherlock’s hands still tangled with his, strokes his thumbs slowly over the captured palms, pressing a kiss to the base of Sherlock’s left thumb.
And then a slow bite. More of a snog, eye contact kept completely.
Sherlock watches him, smile now a smirk.
John lets one of the captive hands go, and it falls to Sherlock’s lap, eye contact kept, as John pushes up one wide sleeve to press another kiss to Sherlock’s wrist. He reaches down to pluck at the other sleeve, distracted to staring at it faintly, confused.
“This is still ridiculous. Who did you get this from again?”
“I took it off Barry Sherwood,” Sherlock’s head is tilted against the wall still, but he watches John’s lips with dark eyes.
John makes a noise that shows he’s listening, as he tugs Sherlock’s arms lightly and Sherlock moves until he is straddling John’s lap comfortably. “He’s the tall one, bit of a dick, yeah?” clarifies John.
Sherlock nods, and John plays with the hem of his shirt.
“I recon we should take it off you then.”
Sherlock nods.
