Prompting Part XXXVII

This is the new prompting post for the Sherlock Prompting Meme. Prompts from LJ can still be filled there with links here or filled here in the new overflow post.


  • Anon posting is not required, but most definitely allowed. If you think you recognise an anon, keep it to yourself and don’t out them. IP tracking is off, and will remain that way.

  • Multiple fills are encouraged, and all kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance — whatever. Go wild! :D

  • 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.

  • Concrit is welcome but kinkshaming, hijacking, and flaming are not tolerated.

When you fill a prompt, please use the appropriate Filled Prompts Post to archive your fill (there are instructions on the actual post).

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, 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. If you want your fill to make it to the Delicious archive, that’s the way to do it.

Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods will be happy to explain.

Please consider warning for prompts that may trigger people (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 past any prompt that you dislike.

Remember: be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

Please nest your fills. Doing so will make it easier for archivists to save your fills to the Delicious archive. Using subject lines will also help people reading the meme in flatview keep track of what’s happening. Finally, titling your fills (even if it’s something silly) will be helpful to those tracking a lot of prompts or scrolling through the 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. After the 7000 comments freeze, a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.

Really don't want to go to bed yet, so here's a super-short mini-fill :-)

Mrs. Hudson didn't admit it took her three tries to get the scones right - silly, fiddly print on the measuring cups, too small to read properly - but Mrs. Turner was suitably impressed anyway.

“I never get to cook for my boys anymore,” Mrs. Turner said as she took a second scone. “Charles is gluten-free now, whatever that means. And Nigel is on a diet again, so I might as well not even bother baking them anything.”

“That’s unfair of them,” Mrs. Hudson commiserated. “Cutting you off from your main chance to chat like that.”

Mrs. Turner gave her a look, but opted to sip her tea instead of objecting. (And it was true, they both knew it was. Especially since by chat they both knew she’d meant gossip.) “You get yours to eat proper meals yet?” she asked in response.

“Oh, Sherlock?” Mrs. Hudson huffed a resigned laugh. “John’ll eat anything, most of the time, but Sherlock - well, it varies. He’s getting better. John bullies him into it.”

“Wouldn’t have thought him the bullying sort, from what you’ve told me.”

“Oh, it’s a sight to see. Sherlock will be in a full temper, saying the most awful things to anyone who ventures near, and then John will . . . actually, I don’t know what John says, precisely, but Sherlock backs down meek as a lamb. And that’s my cue to go open and close the door and then be quiet as a mouse for a while.”

Mrs. Turner gave her a blank look.

“My bedroom’s just under Sherlock’s, you see,” Mrs. Hudson added. “They’re nowhere near as loud if they think I’m home. And that part of my life’s gotten much more exciting since the two of them finally sorted themselves out.”

There was a quiet click as Mrs. Turner set down her teacup, mouth hanging open in surprise, but it was just that kind of friendship so there was no point in prevaricating.

“Wish mine did that,” Mrs. Turner finally said. “Mostly they just argue over the telly.”

“Yes, well.” Mrs. Hudson took a prim bite of her scone. “When I was their age, Walter and I solved most of our disagreements with sex too. Although I’m certain we never had quite as much fun as my boys seem to. Sign of the times, isn’t it? Gay and married and able to shop for sex toys online?”

Mrs. Turner had no answer to that. For once, Mrs. Hudson had actually gotten the last word.
