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 (3f/5ish)

(Anonymous)
consulting_detective — A TV TROPES ARTICLE

consulting_detective
is an (in)famous fanartist in the Sherlock Holmes fandom, a practical genius with pencil and ink, and, according to some sources, one hell of a douchebag. Testimonies differ as to the level of douchebaggery — the fandom seems divided between those who adulate him and those who detest him.

He was involved/started/flounced in such timeless wanks as The Time When Everybody Was A Cat, Why U No Ask The Beeb, Elephants Elephants, and The Case Of The Dog Who Bit The Calf And Tore The Pants. (See a round-up of the fandom_wank reports here.)

consulting_detective is one of the old-school fans who got into Sherlock Holmes fandom in early 2000s, was raised on the ACD stories and the Granada series, and scoffed at the arrival of new fans of the 2009 movie casting Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law. He is said to pride himself on his 'honesty' — i.e., his ability to tell anyone exactly what he thinks of them in vitriolic statements.

More recently, though, he appears to have changed somewhat and mellowed out, thanks to his prolonged involvement with well-known BNF jumperfucker, with whom he is partnered in the Sherlock Holmes Big Bang. The fandom seems welcoming of this change, and likes to speculate on their relationship. At length. This relationship is ongoing, and will necessitate further additions to this page.


Tropes that can be encountered when communicating with this individual:

Ambiguously Gay: according to part of the fandom. Many use this thread, in which he discusses his very large knowledge about tailored, expensive clothing as proof.
Awesome By Analysis: almost a Sherlock Scan, appropriately enough. consulting_detective makes no mystery of his applying Holmes' deduction techniques to real life, which would render any other person ridiculous, but he's just so darn good at it.
Batman Gambit: in this explosive Where Is My Stick wank.
The Chessmaster: in any given discussion, anytime, anywhere. He is always ten steps ahead of you.
Clothes Make The Legend: consulting_detective once mentioned owning a long, flapping, tailored Badass Coat. This spawned three memes, several requests of fic at the kinkmeme, and an increasing number of icons bearing the words 'consulting_detective + Teh Coat = OTP'.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: he knows fandom and fandom's ways perfectly, and it is often discovered that he has manipulated members into doing what he wanted by using fandom etiquette or popular memes.
Deadpan Snarker: played very, very straight.
Doing It For The Art: he often argues this when discussing his fanart pieces.
Good Is Not Nice: interpreted as such for part of the fandom. Others say he's rather a Jerk With A Heart Of Gold. Others think he's simply a Complete Asshole.
