Prompt Post: Side Projects

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE and ADDENDUM

(updated 5 July)

Welcome everybody. By request, this is a new little corner of the meme for other little side projects John Finnemore et al that have no fandoms. So here's a place for you to finally drop that plotbunny that's been bugging you for all this time. I'm aiming for this to be pretty anything goes - but in order for everything to run smoothly, there are a few guidelines. Don't worry - they're not too restrictive.


1) Please put the name of the canon in the subject list. For example, Souvenir Programme, or War Horse.

2) At this point, I am not going to disallow Sherlock prompts but there are, I think, three other memes that will accept them so I would encourage you to go to one of them first. If they start to become too numerous, this rule may change.


As you probably all know - our meme now has it's very own database created and maintained by the great Enigel. It both catalogues each and every prompt that we post and provides links to fills. You can find it here: Google Spreadsheet

We also have a Pinboard archive which has been put in place by the lovely [personal profile] oxfordtweed in the place of our late Delicious Archive. This Archive contains a list of all the prompts this meme has to offer - you can find it here: Pinboard Archive

This is a great step forward in making our meme just a little more organised (but not too organised of course. This is Cabin Pressure) which is always a good thing.

So in order to make things easier to archive - Please nest your fills.

This can be done by either posting each part as a reply to that part's immediate predecessor, OR by replying each time to Part I OR - well you get the idea :D

It makes it simpler for Enigel and myself to link fills in a clean and clear manner. Following these guildelines will be very much appreciated guys :D


Reprompting is allowed but please include the URL of the original prompt when you do so. It will make it infinitely more easy to Archive which would make both Enigel and I very happy :)

As for everything else

1) Be respectful to one another. Disagreements are fine, but not everything disagreeable is trolling. If you suspect someone of trolling, just ignore it. If you cannot respond to a comment without attacking or trolling someone else, keep it to yourself.

2) No bashing prompts. It might not be your cup of tea - but obviously someone wants it enough to go to the effort of requesting it. So just scroll past it.

3) Prompt away as much as you like guys - seriously, go wild - but please try to fill as well.

4) Please no RPF. I'm not trying to oppress you RPF writers and enthusiasts, I would just really like to avoid any legal problems.

5) When you post a fill (or post a new part of a WIP) please go over to the Filled Prompts Post (if it is complete) or the WIP Post (if there are still more parts to come) and, following each post's guideline's, post a link to this fill or new part.


According to numerous Child Safety laws it is illegal to provide pornographic material to minors. Seeing that the majority of the stuff we have here is rather adult in nature, this Meme is consequently an 18+ zone. Failing to comply to this rule could result in the Meme getting shut down. So if you're here and you're under 18 please back button now.

+ Please do not post anything regarding minors in a sexual situation. It really doesn't matter how tasteful or crass it is, there are laws that classify that sort of thing as child pornography and as such, I'm afraid we're going to have to go with the attitude that safe is better than sorry.

It really is VERY important that these rules are upheld as the consequences are severe.

Other than that - go crazy guys. Any problems please just message me and I'll try my best to work it out.

Martin is a Slippery cousin.

I know there's a WIP for this over on AO3, but I don't think it hurts to prompt for a fill, since I'm pretty sure it's been abandoned.

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme: The sketch with the two guards

[personal profile] rebecca2525 2012-06-16 10:01 pm (UTC)(link)
I would love to hear more about the guard who always tells the truth, the guard who always lies, and the guard who sometimes lies and sometimes tells the truth.

Maybe MJN meet the guards?

Or a cracky threesome?

crossover with spoilers for Ashes to Ashes?

What if Roger Allam's character in Ashes to Ashes had been stuck there a very long time, learning a new language and watching the world change, cycling through centuries of dying law officers without moving on himself?

What if Mack used to be Inspector Javert?

John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme - The Goldfish

The humble goldfish get their better memory.

They learn and plan!

... and then take over the world.

Souvenir Programme: Mr Pallister and Mr Cutler

(Anonymous) 2013-07-22 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Mr Cutler (the literature teacher) and Mr Pallister (the maths teacher) in the "MacBeth" sketch were hilarious, as were the pupils (who sounded very much like the goldfish :D).

I'd like to read something about their discussions, pre- and/or post-lessons. (Mr Pallister's "I don't know why he makes such a fuss about it" remark sounded like he might have heard about it more than he cared to...)

Maybe they switched their classes on purpose. Maybe they're BFFs, maybe they're together or pining to be, or maybe the students only get that impression. (Imagine Leonie and Ashna trying to play matchmakers!)

(I hope I heard everyone's names right.)
