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 (4b/5ish)

you (22:11): … oh, come off it. nobody's really called sherlock holmes.

consulting_detective (22:11): And yet, I am. My parents had a very peculiar sense of humour.

you (22:12): do you have a brother
no hold on,
i don't think i want to know
you're getting really deep into the persona, then. deductions? really?

consulting_detective (22:12): It seemed like the right thing to do.
You are being very hypocritical, Doctor John Watson.

you (22:13): how
oh, god, of course you'd know, you would
that's different, though. my parents never read the books. the medicine, the army, it was a complete coincidence. i didn't even realize until i came home to london and read the stories again.
so is this, by the way. i mean, i'm called john watson, and i meet a sherlock holes?
what are the odds?

consulting_detective (22:14): I should say seven thousand and one hundred and sixty-three to one against.

you (22:15): did you actually calculate that, or did you just guess?

consulting_detective (22:15): I never guess.

you (22:16): right, yes. you wouldn't.
oh my god, and you beta fic for people.
you're a consulting beta

consulting_detective (22:16): That's a lousy joke, John.

you (22:17): you are, though
oh, i bet your literary counterpart would have loved that.

consulting_detective (22:18): Considering the number of times he criticized the works of your literary counterpart, I should say so.
Not that I blame him. Your use of adjectives is horrid.

you (22:18): is this you offering to beta my fic?
in a very convoluted and awkward sort of way?

consulting_detective (22:19): Only if think you're able to take it.

you (22:20): right, yes. i do know that, actually.
well, Sarah and Mike would probably be delighted to get a breather, but
i don't know if it would be wise of me to say yes.
you would probably rip me apart.

consulting_detective (22:21): Frightened?

you (22:21): of you?

consulting_detective (22:21): Petty comebacks don't suit you, John.
You are not talking with anyone else. Yes, of me.

you (22:22): … i don't know. i mean, i know you are good at what you do, but — I don't know.
you would probably change me forever. for better or for worse.
i don't know if i'd like that.

consulting_detective (22:23): I can take care of you.

you (22:23): …
are we still talking about fanfic?

consulting_detective (22:24): You tell me, John.

cute enough to shoot you down (jumperfucker) wrote,

Guess who I met on my way to Tesco's.

There was no trace of Tall, Pale and Gorgeous on the second day on the con, as most of you know — I've sure griped quite a lot about it afterwards — so apart from the faint hope of coming across him at another con some time, I wasn't actually planning on seeing him again. Turns out the man is a Londoner.

We were on either side of the street, so I'm pretty sure he didn't see me — even if he did, I hardly think he'd notice me, let alone recognize the short bloke in a jumper he's brushed past in a con, once. Ah well. He stalked past like a dark, long-limbed panther. It was very pretty.

And, you know. I've had a long day, I was tired, I was hungry, there was Top Gear on at eight. I'm not a creepy stalker, so I didn't follow him wherever the hell he was prowling to. But it was good to dream, for a while.

:D I've been wondering when they would have the "real names" conversation. Brilliant.
