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!

The Theory of Narrative Causality (3g/5ish)

Ho Yay: with let_us_trade, definitely. Some insinuate that his relationship with andrès_son is just too vitriolic for them not to want to fuck each other senseless. Lately, he and jumperfucker have been flirting so hard it could shatter windows.
Insufferable Genius: everyone agrees on that one.
Only Friend: jumperfucker doubles as this and as The Watson.
Realistic Diction Is Unrealistic: inverted and lampshades at the same time — you will never see consulting_detective without his faithful minions, Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation, but no one really talks like that on the Internet, surely?
Screw The Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: more a case of Screw The Rules than one of I'm Doing What's Right, but it definitely applies. Especially in cases such as this or this.
Stealth Insult: played straight. consulting_detective can insult you so subtly you only notice it two days later, at a completely unrelated moment.

you (19:09): alright. how about this? go on, hit me.
no profile; journal's friends-only. you've only got the one thread.

consulting_detective (19: 09): Russian. Either very young or trying to sound younger than they really are; probably the second — I should say twenty-six or twenty-eight years old.
Their spouse or partner has recently run out on them and they have been forced to find new lodgings; they use fandom as a means of concretizing their real lives frustrations, but do not quite succeed in the endeavour.
Good education; upper middle class to say the least.

you (19:11): … and you got all that from a thread about manga.
how — no, hold on
okay. tell me.

consulting_detective (19:11): The overuse of exclamation points and 1s indicates either youth or the wish for it. The lack of capitals and otherwise perfect spelling and use of grammar indicate that it is probably the latter, and that their education has been good, deriving for a reasonably wealthy family life.
The points they make are interesting and well-thought, but they are argued with a desperation that brings the logical mind on the focus of the conversation, which was what is generally viewed as a shipping war.
In the subthread that follows, which concerns not relationships but single characterizations, they become much more logical in their conclusions and do not let themselves be taken away by sentiment. They are therefore much troubled by the argument of the love affairs inherent to the fandom they are involved in, possibly because the point of the conversation concerns adultery. We may therefore safely assume that the issue strikes home rather forcefully in this individual, and that they have had the same experience in their personal lives.
They exclaim especially over the necessity for the injured party to find new accommodations for themselves, which again indicates one's personal experience in the matter. Clearly they then use fandom activism as a means of taking out their anger and irritation towards this issue, but are not able to resolve them, as the argument worsens eventually into name-calling.
Does that satisfy your curiosity, John?

you (19:13): so far, yes
fuck that's bloody briiliant
what about the Russian bit? their English is flawless.

consulting_detective (19:13): Russian smileys.

you (19:13): sorry, what?

consulting_detective (19:14): These parentheses at the end of the sentences are the Russian versions of your silly little :)s.

you (19:14): … russian. smileys.

consulting_detective (19:15): Really, John, that was the easiest bit.

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

I just wanted to ask what you mean by russian smileys, we normally use )) or :( is it any different?
