Today I was catching up on our mirror community on LJ, and the entry on hijacking other people's prompts on kink memes reminded me of one of my own continual grievances (especially since kink memes are really the only place I write fic and are my main source for some fandoms).

If someone makes a prompt and you find the general premise interesting, but don't like the pairing/specific kink/whatever, make your own damn prompt.  Don't hijack it with "X idea is great, but you should fill with Charles/David instead of Allan/Bruce."

I've seen it happen more than once, and, in fact, it's one of the things that drove me away from the kink meme in one of my old fandoms a couple years ago (My example up there?  Basically what happened to the prompt I wrote.  And the eventual filler complied.).  It's bad enough when random people come in and tack on additions to prompts that weren't theirs to start with, but if you're going to downright contradict the original prompt?  Not on at all.
