Welcome to the BBC The Musketeers kink meme

The lowdown: You post your prompt, anon or not. Someone else will hopefully fill it (also anon or not). Not for profit, just for fun. And in this case, for king and country.

Anon is on, IP logging is off.

Rules:
No wank
No kink-shaming
Be respectful to everyone
The mod is not your babysitter
Use the warnings
No prompts with characters under the age of 16 in sexual situations, please.
Please keep the discussions in the prompt post to a minimum. We have a discussion post

Mandatory trigger warnings/warnings for both prompts and fills:
non-con/dub-con
abuse (physical and mental)
issues such as racism, sexism, homo-/trans-/-bi-/ace-phobia etc
character death
suicide
self-harm
eating disorders
extreme physical or mental illness
substance abuse (alcohol, drugs, medication)
bullying
gore and horror

If this list misses anything, do let me know, though please understand that if absolutely everything is added this list will never end.

You are encouraged and advised to add additional warnings at your own discretion.

Please make use of the subject line.

If your prompt alludes to the book or any of the other adaptations, please let us know which one.

Lastly, prompt freezes (which I have to say I’m really not fond of) etc will be at the mod’s discretion. I will decide on a prompt cut-off point for prompt posts once I know how fast the meme moves.

New updates:

- To answer a question going around in the discussion post, here's a small guideline: If you're unsure about something, either decide by yourself how you want to fill it and see if OP likes it or not or communicate with OP via aksing questions.


Athos/Aramis, UST, Athos is in love

It is newer enough Athos/Aramis in this life. I want some sweet UST, and this time Athos have to be the one, who is in love with Aramis madly, but keeps it to himself for a long time, and other just have no clue. Because it is always Aramis, who makes the first move, and I want it to be the other way.

I`d much appreciate Athos`s POW, a lot of his thoughts about his friend and "what if", and all of this drives him to the point, when hi just couldn`t resist and spills it out to Aramis. They are kissing. Happy end :)

Please, give me feelings, and I will love you till the end of times :)

We can guess at the gist of what you mean, but maybe double check your sentences next time? It will let fillers understand what you're after a little better! :)

I`m terribly sorry, my English is barely enough even for this, but next time I`ll try better)

Don't worry, it was perfectly understandable, there weren't really that many errors. You're doing just fine. The only way to learn a language is using it! :)

As for prompt: seconded! I'd love to see Athos pining away. He'd be all silently yet tragically dramatic, it would be delicious!

Thank you :) Though I wish I knew your language better, I could`ve write something then.

There's a time and a place for commenting on people's grammar and sentence structure. A (perfectly understandable) prompt on a kink meme probably doesn't make that list. In fact, unless you've been asked to give your opinion on someone's grasp of the English language, it's probably best to just say nothing :-)

Not in a mean way, but the essence of a kinkmeme is writing.

Some would argue that what matters is having fun with other members of fandom. Most people here just lurk, never writing but just reading. Another huge part just writes prompts. A tiny portion of those active on this meme then write fills. Maybe there we can start to be concerned about quality, but frankly a better policy is probably to just not continue reading if the errors are too jarring.

Commenting like you did has the potential of hurting people's feelings (not just OP's) and might make future prompters and fillers worry about posting in the future. It makes the meme a less nice and inclusive place to be. I understand where you're comming from -- if you want to join me in a discussion in the appropriate thread about the urgent need for beta readers in this fandom I think you'll find us on the same side -- but maybe you've never had reason to think about it from the perspective of non-native speakers before?

I won't say anything more about it here though. Have a nice week! :-)

I am working on quite a few fills at the moment, but I will put this on my to do list!

I would like to write a fill. Plz help me: What is UST?
And as a non native speaker I'd need a native English beta reader/corrector :). Greets!

UST: Unresolved Sexual Tension. Two people are obviously attracted to each other, but some element of the story
is keeping them apart.
I would love to see your fill =)

It's not exactly a 100% fill to this prompt, but as I love the "Athos secretly loves Aramis"-thing, too, there's quite some of it in my last attempt: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1902390

Maybe I will write a real fill after my current work :).
