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 (4i/5ish)

And the great revelation, because, well, I'd be kidding myself if I said this isn't what everybody's been talking about. Yes, my name is John Watson. For the record, my parents hadn't read the books until after I was born, and weren't at all aware that Doyle's Watson's first name was John when they chose a name for me. (Not that Doyle did, either. He seemed pretty damn confused about the whole thing himself.) I also am an ex-army doctor, and I was invalidated home from Afghanistan, which was, and remains, a complete and utter coincidence. In some ways, really, this only makes me sad; well over a century has passed, and yet the conflicts are still there, in the same place.

I went there with the wish to help people, in a greater and higher way than I could if I just stayed at home to tend to the flu and the occasional chicken pox. It was… overwhelming. I am not quite sure whether I found something there. What I do know is that coming back to London after that, with a shattered shoulder and a very stiff leg, was a terrible, dreary experience. And then I found fandom.

Someone — I think you will guess who — once told me that I used Sherlock Holmes fanfiction as a means of coping with my trauma. It's true in many ways. Fandom gave me a certain anchor at a time when it was all I could do not to simply drown myself in London. It gave me purpose through writing, gave me friends, made me get a grip on my life and go out for job interviews when I needed to. Writing Watson's POV was very helpful as well, because it was easy to protect myself in the skin of an ex-army doctor wounded in action, and it helped me get a certain sense of perspective.

But he's not me, and I don't write him as me. My interpretation of him is influenced by my own experiences, that's true enough, but I and my betas work hard to make sure he is his own character, faithful to the book, the Granada series, or the '09 movie.

And there are good outcomes to this whole wreck of a wank anyhow. Most of you know that w_harry is my sister. Most of you do not know that following my return to London two years ago, she was just out of a very bloody divorce with her new ex-wife Clara.

And, well. Apparently, I'm not the only one who finds an involvement in fandom cathartic. And if you're on their flists, you probable know that w_harry and neveryou_again have had a very charming, very flirty relationship these past few months. When my real name came out a few days ago, neveryou_again put two and two together and realized that all this time she had been steadily flirting with her own ex-wife.

So now they've off on vacation together, enjoying the Bermudas and probably having a lot of sex, so I guess some good things have come out of all this mess.

Let's just calm the fuck down, yeah?

I'm so sorry, John. I wasn't expecting this when I introduced you to fandom.

It's fine. Bit of a shock, though.

Thank you. *hugs*

*hugs back*

You're welcome. You've been a queen throughout this. Don't hesitate to ask if you need anything, yeah?

I will. :)

She's got me anyhow — we're eating ice cream and swearing off men forever. :P

Good on you, mate. Don't let that fucker bring you down

Yeah, don't worry. I'm here to stay.

Don't worry. If I see anyone loitering around the surgery, I'll run them off.

My hero. :D
