Corsets and Lemons is a multifandom kink meme hosted on Dreamwidth. It allows prompts and fills for Classic Literature from the 19th century. In September 2019 a new round was open for works from the 16th to 18th century.
The community posts maintain a title theme centered around the Citrus Scale with puns over classic books, such as: The Scarlet Orange, The tenant of citrus hall, A Christmas Grapefruit, Les Citrons du Mal.
The most filled Classic work is the Italian novel from the 19th century The Bethroted by Alessandro Manzoni, followed by Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley but the meme features a lot of varied less known classical works that stem from novels to poetry to short stories and RPF.
