This was invented, as far as I know, for Prince of Tennis fandom, where finding obscure and strange pairings out of +100 characters is really bloody DIFFICULT.
And we all know how hard it is to find just that certain kink.
Hence, Kink Meme!
Especially if it's a Questionable one.
Hence, Anon Kink Meme!
I was reflecting on the Distilled Joy that the AKMs are, and it occured to me that I love PoT fandom because they seem like the only ones who do this. "Well, that's no good," I thought to myself. "Poor underprivileged other fandoms."
So I thought I'd try suggesting one here.
This is whatcha do:
Post an ANONYMOUS request. This is important. You can request a single character, a pairing, a threesome, a foursome... Whatever feeds your ducks. If your kink is War and Aziraphale eating ice-cream, that is as valid as, say, hardcore Death/Pollution.
(Feeling blocked? Here's a list of nearly 400.)
The fics don't need to be epic, but PLEASE try to write at least one answering fic (Also ANONYMOUS, unless you feel comfortable having your True Identity known--takes some of the fun out of it, though, *I* think). Obviously, if you don't write, we can't tell, but it would be good karma. :D If no one fufils anyone's requests, the meme dies. D: Poor dead meme.
But have fun with this! <3
Let's hear those kinks, then.
(PS. Feel free to pimp this out)
ETA: *One Year Later* Jesus fuck, this thing is still going?? O_O
ETA: *Two Years Later* O_________O STILL!? Fuckin He--Hea--SOMEWHERE. I'm stunned! All the other memes were just flashes in the pan--fashionable one moment and forgotten the next. Great job, everyone!! Keep up the good work! I'm so glad I started this meme, and I'm so glad that people have been working so hard to fufill each other's kinks. High fives all around!
ETA: *Two Years and A Bit Later* Man, you guys blow my mind. However, I just noticed an issue that I feel needs to be addressed. I just noticed somewhere amongst these 1100+ comments a request for me to remove a discussion that had gotten a bit wanky; since y'all seem to have worked it out and made (very mature, IMO) apologies, I'm going to leave it up as a good example to anyone else who happens to come across it. Well done, Anonymice, I am proud.
However, if there are ever any circumstances in the future that cause people to want a post (or series of posts) removed, PLEASE feel free to contact me (asking in the comments won't be effective, since I am very, VERY bad about keeping up with this meme). If you explain the situation (and link me to the posts in question, please!), as the meme founder, I will do whatever I deem is most sensible. (Check on my profile for my contact info--You can find my email and several IM clients to which I am logged in 24/7; you can also send me a PM, but there will most likely be a much slower response.) However, I have faith in the maturity and levelheadedness that this fandom has, so just remember to think before you type and try to assume that other people are making comments with as sweet-natured a tone as possible.
Keep being awesome. I'm around if you need me. :)
ETA: *Two Years and a Bit and A Day Later* So many thanks to steadfast , who (in proof of her username) has compiled a list of complete and incomplete requests! There are also a few reveals in the comments. :)
ETA: *Three Years Later* So, for those of you who have been paying attention, there was a bit of a mix-up. Long story short: Don't ever go on vacations, ever; I'm a dumbass who doesn't check her email enough; spam filters were invented by Aziraphale, but it was Crowley's idea to make them more effective than need be. *headdesk*ANYWAY. It's been a really, really great run. Three whole years! I'm so proud of all of you. But this meme will be closing--or, rather, moving to a new home. inkmage has adopted it and is modding it over at good_omens_kink. Y'all should definitely check it out, it looks like she's doing great work with it. I'm not on LJ enough anymore, and although I still think of this meme as one of my greatest accomplishments on the internet, it's grown enough that it's time to hand it off to someone more suited to looking after it, and for me to gracefully step down from the glamorous position of Kink Meme Mod. XD
The new community has my full blessing, and I wish everyone the best of luck--I hope it continues on the amazing path that it has followed these last three years, and I could not be more proud to have been a part of it's history. I'm a little sad to be letting the it go, but it's the best thing for everyone.
I hope this meme has brought everyone else ten times the joy it's brought me over the years. This post and the journal will stay up for as long as the gods allow. Goodnight, little kink meme; bon voyage, good_omens_kink <3
