IT BEGINS! (The Prompt Post)



It's time to prompt!


How, you ask? First, the basics:

  • You may make as many prompts as you like.
  • You don't have to be a member of the comm, or plan on making anything for the festival in order to prompt.
  • Please skim through the existing prompts to avoid duplicates!
  • These prompts are for fic, art, vids, icons, cosplay--whatever people want to create! So be creative--come up with a good mix of specific and general prompts.
  • Your prompt does not have to relate to spring. (But spring prompts are encouraged!)
  • If your prompt contains graphic sex / violence/ stuff that's generally warned for, please include a warning in the subject line of your comment.



What can't you prompt?

  • Please, no requests for sex involving minors.
  • All prompts should feature (or intend to feature) Sherlock characters; therefore, RPF of the actors outside the canon of the show is not allowed.
  • Please limit prompts to one or two lines.


Prompt Protocol!

Prompts should look like this:

CHARACTERS/PAIRING; PROMPT

A PAIRING you would like to see should be specified with a slash (i.e. Sherlock/John or Molly/Sarah). CHARACTERS you would like to see should be separated by commas (i.e. Sherlock, John, Molly, Sarah).

You can also make a prompt that doesn't specify a pairing or characters: in that case, specify ANY before your prompt.

example prompts:
  • Sherlock/John; tiptoe through the tulips.
  • Lestrade, Donovan, Anderson, Sherlock, Watson; office picnic.
  • Sally/Molly, Sherlock; "Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May." -Shakespeare
  • ANY; a visit from the Easter bunny leads to disaster.


    Crossovers:
    Crossover prompts should follow this format:

    CHARACTERS/PAIRING; CROSSOVER CANON; PROMPT

    examples:
  • Sherlock, John, Scully, Mulder; X-Files; Sherlock consults for the FBI.
  • ANY; Oliver Twist; "Please, Sir, can I have some more?"
