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 2000 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.

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.

I also urge you to consider warning not just for triggery prompts, but also for fills, because some people will be viewing in flat view.

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!

in 90% of the sherlock fic i read, there is some variation of the "it's fine. it's all fine." speech. so, can we get a fic where john says that and sherlock totally shuts him down and whips out statistics of how often john says that. "john, this is the thirtieth time in the past two days that you have told me that it's 'all fine.' yesterday, i asked you if liked being beaten severely about the head and neck until you suffer internal bleeding."

Upon reading this prompt I had two different images. A serious one and a cracky one.

Serious: Yesterday John said it was 'all fine' because he has suicidal tendencies. And all the other times are because he knows he's going to commit suicide anyways, so why waste energy caring what Sherlock does/thinks?

Cracky: He says 'it's all fine' because he's tuning out and not paying attention, like some sort of absent-minded 'yes, dear', 'whatever you say, dear', 'of course, dear'.

And now I've just thought of a political one: John is an extreme libertarian. He just honestly does. not. care. (Though this would also have some other implications blah blah blah....)

I want them all!!!! Give me!!!

Hee. TRUFAX

seconded.

I mean, seriously.

Fandom needs more fic-cliche-based meta.
