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!

Re: The Theory of Narrative Causality (3c/5ish)

(Which came as an absolute surprise when you realize that the nice, shiny new person in front of you is the fantastic fanartist/fic writer you've been talking to for months online.)

So please, stop asking. No, I won't be meeting up with you in some unknown little pub on the other side of London, that's what cons are for. Nor will I tell you where I work, and who for, because I have a hobby of writing Victoriana slash, and that's not necessarily well-seen outside of fandom.

I'm just. You know. I'm just a guy who happens to like Victorian porn. Remember that, don't harass me (you know who you are, don't do it again), and we'll all be good. Thank you.

Anyhow, to make up for this serious mood, have a ficlet (mostly written in celebration of my having reached the 25,000 mark on BigBang fic):

Title: and there we go, then, together
Length: 1,500 words.
Pairing: Holmes/Watson
Betas: sarah_s and storm_ford, who need to stop massacring my semi-columns on Google Docs. What have semi-columns ever done to you.
Rating: PG-13? I can never tell when there's no porn.
Summary: John Watson wakes up. And wakes up. And wakes up.

(we've never had a life of our own)

Ooh, what happened?

Mostly just one asshole, I think — they had a sockpuppet account at first, and after I banned them the anon comments started flooding in. I turned it off for a bit, but quite a lot of people like to comment anon, so I can't keep it down forever just because I can't be arsed to delete a few silly comments.

It's calmed down a bit now, though. Whoever they are, they've got quite a sick fascination with consulting_detective.

That sounds horrible. >:( Good luck, Johnny.

Thanks. :D

Good luck getting rid of the troll, John! &hearts

Thank you!

So this is still going on, then.

I'm afraid so, yeah. You might want to try and find out who they are with your mad deducin' skilz.

Anything for you.

"'… Holmes,' I whispered, and as I closed my hand around his upper arm I felt my friend's fine muscles tremble with tension under the sleeve. I did not know how many hours he had been awake — I did not know how many hours I had been awake, and exhaustion rippled through my veins like a sick version of his seven-percent — and his eyes were bright and brittle in the dull dawn. From where I knelt, sitting back on my haunches in a position that drove fine tendrils of pain into my left thigh, I could only see the high slope of his shoulder and his thin, angular profile, twitching with passing thoughts. His brilliant brain had not yet screeched to a halt, as mine had. I wondered if it were not worse, to see, as he did, every dreadful arrangement of the hours and minutes we had before us, and never find a solution quite good enough for the both of us to survive them.

'My dear boy,' he said finally, very softly. His arm shook in my grasp and tore away, only to return in the guise of his fingers, slipping effortlessly between mine. They hooked there, cradled my palm with warmth. I staggered. I was so very tired that I could only squeeze back, and hope that the brush of my wrist against his was a clue he could decipher.

Me either. In my mind there's only two ratings - Gen and Porn :DDD

Re: The Theory of Narrative Causality (3c/5ish)

"Anything for you"?! Now that's as "As you wish" if I ever heard one!

I am really loving this whole bunches!
