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 (4e/5ish)

andrès_son suggests that the_professor's apparent admiration of consulting_detective's skills might indicate that he is, in fact, a sockpuppet created by him. jumperfucker angrily responds. consulting_detective's own answer is scathing. salts_theway seems to agree with andrès_son for a while, but eventually appears to change her mind.

consulting_detective then proceeds to argue that the_professor is only a new, more educated version of jumperfucker's previous stalker. The theory is ignored for the moment, but will later, we'll see, be accepted as true by most members of the fandom.

the_professor makes several more posts on cox_and_co and holmeschat in a matter of days (and sporadically appears on shkinkmeme as well), without attacking any more LJ users, and resorting only to criticizing the '09 movie rather violently (which will give the detractors of the consulting_detective = the_professor a lot of material to work with, as consulting_detective has often in the past expressed his dislike for the Ritchie 'verse.) He seems to ship Holmes/Moriarty belligerently, considers it canon and refuses to admit any other reading of the ACD stories. One discussion he has with miss_toby (who ships Holmes/Irene) turns sour, and the_professor is eventually banned from holmes_chat on the 22nd of May, a week after his first post.

After that, the fandom settles down a bit, laughs at itself for a while, and goes on their merry ways, thinking the wank is over for this time.


ACT THREE: the calm before the storm

the_professor continues to flounce in his own journal, but is, for the most part, ignored. Several members, such as sarah_s or lass_sirene, make posts commenting on the past few days, and warn to STAY AWAY FROM HIM, quoting several of the grievances they have been subjected to. Most of the fandom agrees, and both let_us_trade and my_croft write a WARNING POST in holmeschat and cox_and_co.

consulting_detective remains very quiet, appearing briefly on his own journal and apparently talking with jumperfucker in chats. He does not comment on the wank.

never_youagain makes a post on the_professor's obvious misogyny, relying on the_professor's especially scathing comments towards the known female members of the comms.

mrs_hudson, the mod of shkinkmeme, writes an open letter to the troll, in which she tells him,

"If you have tried to threaten us, you have failed. If you have tried to frighten us, you have failed. If you have tried to goad us, you have failed. You have only managed to make a masquerade of yourself, made yourself petty and mean in our opinions."

People everywhere cheer. Several of the commenters on this post advice the_professor to take some of mrs_hudson's infamous herbal soothers to calm himself down. the_professor makes an anon apparition, going as far as signing his comment, but gets mostly U MAD for a reply.
