Please check the Sticky Post to find the newest active part and post your prompts there.

Prompts from this post can be filled on the Overflow Post


GENERAL GUIDELINES
+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.
+Until further notice, 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 2500 and 4500 comments.
+However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. Also at 7000, 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.

THE FILLED PROMPTS POST
There's a link to this at the bottom of the 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 mod would be happy to explain.

CONTACTING MODS
Your mod for this meme is snowishness. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to send a PM or contact me via the page-a-mod post.

RE: OFFENSIVELY WORDED PROMPTS
Guys, I will only put in one reminder about this.
Think before you prompt about the way you are asking. It isn’t difficult, and it will only take a minute or so of your time.

That said...
DISCLAIMER
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 have rights to an opinion, of course, just as you have the right to scroll right past a prompt that you dislike.

Remember, guys; Be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

Fuck it. I love listfic

1. In the winters, John likes drink mulled cider, likes to hold a steaming mug between his cold fingers. Harry makes the best stuff, as loathe as John is to admit it. There's cinnamon and cloves and nutmeg and a dash of caramel, but John can never quite get it right when he tries it for himself. She refuses to give John her recipe every time he asks, saying that she wants something to hold over his head, and that just reminds John why he and Harry never quite got on. Afghanistan isn't cold enough for cider, but when that first Christmas rolls around, John finds himself missing it all the same.

2. Sally doesn't really tell anyone this, but she likes making pottery when she's not at work. She likes the feel of clay being shaped under her hands, the strong, fragrant smell of the kiln. There's something soothing about the act of creating after seeing so much death. Sherlock's deduced it, she's sure, from the bits of clay wedged underneath her nails, from the smell she can never quite wash out of her hair, but he never mentions it. Sally doesn't know why.

3. Most people get along with Anderson just fine. In fact, there are quite a few who like him. Sure, he runs his mouth off a bit, but that's the price you pay for saying what everyone is thinking while everyone else is too cowardly to open their mouths.

4. Sherlock can't actually play the violin. The Stradivarius was a gift from a thankful client, and he keeps it around because even he can appreciate beauty from time to time. He brings it out when Mycroft visits because Mycroft knows he can't play and Sherlock knows Mycroft knows Sherlock can't play, and that annoys Mycroft in a way he refuses to express. It makes Sherlock grin every time he sees Mycroft make the tiniest wince as he rosins his bow.

5. Lestrade was married once, when he was much younger and much more naive. It didn't end badly so much as slowly, achingly until there was no other choice but to let it go. On the last day he sees her, the day she finally moves out, he finds sitting by the window smoking the last of his cigarettes, her face half-hidden in shadow. "I'm sorry, she says as she puts the fag out on the sill. He doesn't say anything as he watches her leave, but he leaves the remains of her last cigarette on the windowsill for a month as a reminder that she's really gone.

6. Molly talks to the corpses sometimes when no one's around to see it. She tries not to be creepy about it, but she likes to let them know that she's going to be gentle about it, as gentle as she can be. She knows they can't feel her knives, can't hear her words, but she wants to be nice about it all the same. Seems like the polite thing to do.

7. It's not that Jim doesn't like rules. Jim loves rules. He likes creating them out of thin air, likes changing them on a whim, likes making everyone around him dance to them. They are such useful tools in the end. After all, without rules, how can Jim break them?
