Prompting: Part XV
Giggles at the Palace
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

+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.
+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, after the freeze 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.

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.

Your mods for this meme are snowishness and marill_chan. 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.

Please consider warning for triggery prompts (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 right past a prompt that you dislike.

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

Sherlock is a well-known fanartist whose online antics always land him on fandom_wank. John's a beloved BNF fanfiction author. They meet at a convention; geeky love ensues.

Oh, how I love this prompt. XD

(Mycroft, that is a sigma. Stop fucking taunting me.)

This sounds like an awesome meta-fill waiting to happen. Please someone fill this! What would they be fans of I wonder. The original canon maybe? House?

OMG yes, this, please.

I think I read a 2009!Holmes fic somewhat along these lines, too, if you would like the link.

I personally would *love* the link

Filling this if I have to die at it.


yay! \o/

This is brilliant. Someone fill please!

I can so easily imagine Sally trying to get everyone to boycott Sherlock's art because of all the wank, but no one does because it's so good. And Mycroft as the mod of a popular community, constantly trying to control Sherlock's antics

Jim is the creeper who digs through the actors' bins and stalks them.

Fill: The Theory of Narrative Causality (1a/4?)

sorry for how late this is, the fill sort of. ran away. a lot. anyway. hello, meme, nice to meet you at last.

things happen because the plot says they should.

In Which consulting_detective Would Like You All To Know His Thoughts About Sherlock Holmes

Thanks for the mousies at wank_report for the beginning of this account; I filled in the rest.

Right. consulting_detective. Best damn fanartist in Sherlock Holmes fandom, makes you take one look and jump under the cold shower, master snarker, deadpan cynist, canon lover, sneers at everyone who's in his way, etcetcetc. If you'd like reminders of his previous antics, see here, here, and here. (And here, if you want to be scarred forever.)

So Sherlock Holmes fandom has been small and refined for the longest time. (Many would have it that it's the First Fandom Ever, and that Holmes/Watson is the first slash ship sailin' the seven seas, back when all fapping material fans had were 'zines and mail chains.) The original stories have been adapted left, right, and center — see Basil Rathbone and Bumblin' Nigel Bruce, or the scrumptious Jeremy Brett and his two Watsons. And then there's been the '09 movie by Guy Ritchie, starring Robert Downey Junior as a disheveled, scruffy Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as gambling, gun-savvy John 'REALLY FUCKING HOT' Watson.

Fandom, as a result, exploded in many and various ways. Fanfic was written. Fanart was drawn. Discussions were had. There were challenges. And at least two kinkmemes.

There's been a bit of a lull recently, but after the confirmation of an upcoming sequel in winter 2011, and several set photos being let loose, fandom is sizzling once again.

(This background info was brought to you by extensive reading on holmesian_news.)

In the wake of these set pictures, s_sarah publishes this thread on holmeschat, linking back to this cast list in which Kelly Reilly, who plays Watson's fiancée, is recorded as Mary Morstan (as opposed to Mary Watson) and asks the community whether 1. this means they are not yet married, and 2. what it signifies for the Holmes-Watson relationship.

For a while the discussion is pretty civil, with several suggestions and polite disagreements (possible spoilers behind the links). And then consulting_detective comes in, and everything goes to hell in a hand basket.

consulting_detective is reputed for being an out-and-out canon supporter; his fanart is resolutely canon-based, with inspiration taken from the original Paget pictures and the Granada series starring Jeremy Brett. His dislike for the '09 movie is an open secret, but so far he'd been pretty quiet in his criticism outside out of his journal. Here, though, he really lets himself go.

LINKS for "The Theory of Narrative Causality"

(Second attempt—the first vanished into the morass of comments whose subject lines can't even be seen, at least for me, thus making the key word "LiNKS" in my subject line useless.)

I had enough trouble finding all the parts of "The Theory of Narrative Causality" that I pulled together a list of links. I share it with anyone who had trouble navigating the page as I did. (If it was only me, no brickbats, please.)
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

Code because sharing is caring!

Re: The Theory of Narrative Causality links

I love this fic. I love it with a fiery and passionate love.

*hugs fic*

Author, you rule.
