Prompting: Part XV

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.
+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.

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 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.

WARNINGS/OFFENSIVE WORDING IN PROMPTS
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!

The Theory of Narrative Causality (2b/5ish)

(Anonymous)
From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Sorry, was a bit amazed, hit Send
too soon. So I, uh. That's pretty
amazing.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Sorry, right, that doesn't quite cover
it. That's brilliant. How d'you do that?
I mean, I guess you could know the
army doctor, working at a surgery
thing if you were stalking me, but
the PTSD? and the reading Doyle's
stories when I was a kid?


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


If you say 'Elementary, my dear
Watson,' I will hunt you down.

:D


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


You're babbling.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


I'm aware of that, yeah.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Also, you're stalling.


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


Oh, fine. The medical studies are
obvious — you speak of medicine
yourself at length in your journal,
protesting against a certain type
of drug, making a celebratory post
about that AIDS breakthrough a
few weeks ago, you probably don't
quite realize it yourself you are
knowledgeable in military matters,
more so than anybody else in this
fandom. You mentioned having
had a gun in your hand and riding
a chopper in the past, and you've
talked at length on the situation in
the Middle East recently; you're
clearly directly affected by it.
Hence, military doctor, simple
enough.

You have talked of pains in your
shoulder and your leg without
extrapolating on them; you seem
relatively unfazed by the shoulder
ache, but increasingly irritated by
your leg, which means the reasons
for each are different. You accept
the shoulder wound because you
consider it justified by your past;
so, wounded in action. But your
leg plays up when it should not,
most likely from a psychosomatic
limp, of which you are aware but
unable to get rid. Your working
daily at the local surgery fits in
with the logical continuity of your
medical knowledge.

Your relationship with sarah_s
is a close one, and you've several
times mentioned having lunch with
her; however, you've also made a
point of not meeting fandom friends
offline, and of reserving this for
people you know from everyday
meetings. You lead a very busy,
tiring day, if your complaints of
paperwork and long hours are to
be believed, and would not take
several hours off on a weekday
merely to have lunch with a friend.
So you're working together, and
are eating out on your lunch hour
for company. You are informal with
each other, but there is a slight
awkwardness to your relationship,
especially when you mention going
out with someone, which can only
fit new acquaintances — a level
you have already passed through
— or lovers turned friends again,
unwilling to pry in their ex's affairs.

As for fanfiction, I should think that
was obvious. Your past still haunts
you, but you clearly enjoy writing
your stories, and generally favour
John Watson's POV, which, knowing
your history, indicates that you are
projecting your own experiences
into them. It is quite a common
means of coping with their pasts
for invalidated soldiers to write down
their experiences, and clearly your
psychiatrist has put you up to it. You
do it in quite a derived way, but you
do it nonetheless.

Satisfied?


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Wow.

No, hold on, I need to reread this.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


What about the bit about my
reading the Doyle stories when
I was a kid?


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


You said so yourself.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Did I?


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


Yes.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


How'd you know I have a
psychiatrist, though?


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


You are an ex-army doctor with
a psychosomatic limp. Of course
you've got a psychiatrist.


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


John?


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Rrrrrrrright, hold on, still need
to swallow this.

The Theory of Narrative Causality (2bb/5ish) — sorry, forgot a segment

(Anonymous)
From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Nope, sorry, still amazing. It's
got to be tremendous work,
remembering all these things,
how'd you do that? It's
extraordinary.


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


Do you think so?


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


'Course I do. It's amazing.
Surely you know that.


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


It's not what people usually say.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


What do people usually say?


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


GTFO.

Or, alternatively, DIAF.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


LOL.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Seriously though, I feel a bit
like the original John Watson
must have felt when Holmes
deduced the shit out of him
in STUD


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


The original John Watson.


From: jumperfucker,
To: consulting_detective,


Oh, you know what I mean.


From: consulting_detective,
To: jumperfucker,


Yes, John, I rather think I do.
