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 (4d/5ish)

[redacted] wrote in fandom_wank,

"Good morning, Holmes!" I said to my friend and flatmate, as I returned to our lodgings on Baker Street that fine June morning to find him curled up in his armchair by the fireside, his mouse dressing-gown pulled tight around the edges of his, his long legs folded underneath him and his graceful fingers carelessly handling a letter. "What is this, a case?"

"Not quite," he replied, flashing me a swift smile from over the thin letter paper. "A confidence, rather. They have asked for my… advice, certainly, but my assistance I think will not be required."

"Then why do you look so happy?" I seated myself in my armchair, feeling more cheerful by the minute as I picked up my pipe. "Does the matter have some matters of interest, despite its not requiring your involvement?"

"You could certainly say so, Watson," he said, sounding quite as cheerful as I. "Settle yourself quite comfortable, my dear man, and listen well, for this is quite the pretty story…"

ACT ONE: the premises

In late March, 2011, jumperfucker and consulting_detective are paired together in the shbigbang. See our entry on the subject here. It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

As their relationship strengthens (i.e., becomes more and more homoerotic), people begin to suspect a certain something between them, and make several suggestions about their (potential) sex-life. Kinkmeme fills abound. jumperfucker and consulting_detective consistently deny the rumours, but do not help themselves by flirting quite incessantly and even writing RPF fic of themselves.

Early May: jumperfucker complains of being sent threatening messages by theimprobableone, who bears 1) an empty profile, and 2) a single entry on their journal. After jumperfucker bans theimprobableone from commenting/sending him PMs, he receives several anonymous comments along the same vein, and turns off anon commenting for a week. You can find some of the anon comments jumperfucker has disdained to delete here, or here. Eventually, the anon, who can safely be assumed to be theimprobableone, grows tired of making useless threats, flounces one last time, and disappears. (Note: jumperfucker has kept this comment for posterity.)

Mid-may: everything goes to hell.

ACT TWO: the_professor enters

On the 15th of May, a new member of holmeschat starts this thread, since frozen by the mod, in which they attack several key members of the fandom, and make personal remarks on their lives, most of which appear to be true. the_professor thus earns himself the reputation of a stalker, and is given a wide berth in all the other Sherlock Holmes communities.
