Prompting Part XXXV


GUIDELINES

  • Anon posting is not required, but most definitely allowed. If you think you recognise an anon, keep it to yourself and don’t out them. IP tracking is off, and will remain that way.

  • Multiple fills are encouraged, and all kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance — whatever. Go wild! :D

  • Don’t reprompt until TWO parts after the last posting of the prompt.

  • RPF (real person fic, i.e. fic involving the actors themselves) is not supported at this meme.

  • Concrit is welcome, but kinkshaming, hijacking, and flaming are not tolerated.


THE FILLED PROMPTS POST
When you fill a prompt, please use the appropriate Filled Prompts Post to archive your fill (there are instructions on the actual post).

If the part you wanted isn't up yet, just wait and one of the archivists will get to it, but please, once it is up, make sure you post your fills there according to the guidelines. DO NOT skip out on doing this because it seems like too much effort. If you want your fill to make it to the Delicious archive, that’s the way to do it.

Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods will be happy to explain.

WARNINGS/OFFENSIVE WORDING IN PROMPTS
Please consider warning for prompts that may trigger people (and also for fills, because some people read in flat view) and phrasing prompts in a manner that strives to be respectful.

Things which you might want to consider warning for include: Rape/Non-Con, Death, Suicidal Thoughts, Self-Harm, Underage Relationships, among others.

That being said, this is a kink meme. As such, there will be prompts that could offend you in a number of different ways. Not every prompt will have a trigger warning, and not every prompt will rub you the right way. If you have an issue with a specific prompt, feel free to bring it up in a discussion that takes place off the meme. However, flaming will not be tolerated regardless of origin.

You are highly encouraged to scroll past any prompt that you dislike.

Remember: be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

THINGS THAT MAKE BROWSING THE MEME EASIER FOR EVERYONE
Please nest your fills. Doing so will make it easier for archivists to save your fills to the Delicious archive. Using subject lines will also help people reading the meme in flatview keep track of what’s happening. Finally, titling your fills (even if it’s something silly) will be helpful to those tracking a lot of prompts or scrolling through the meme.

PROMPT FREEZES
Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 2000 and 4500 comments. However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. After the 7000 comments freeze, a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.

CONTACTING MODS

Reincarnation Crossover of Cry

(Anonymous) 2014-04-24 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Sherlock/The Hobbit/Star Trek Crossover inspired by the Doctor and River Song's relationship:
We live in a universe where bodies come and go, but spirits live for as long as they wish. A weary spirit can choose to depart the cycle, once their current body dies. All spirits reincarnate, but only a few remember their past lives.
John Watson and Sherlock Holmes have that ability
They meet in three lives: first in the alternate dimension that holds Middle Earth as Bilbo and Smaug, second in modern-day London as Sherlock and John, and finally in space as [create your own identity for SpaceFuture!John] and Khan Noonien Singh.
HOWEVER.
For [insert reason here], it is possible to have a spirit that reincarnates into the past, just like one can be born left-handed. Sherlock is a spirit who reincarnates backwards, while John reincarnates forwards.
Thus, when Bilbo and Smaug meets, it's the first time John meets Sherlock, and the last time Sherlock will meet John. And when SpaceFuture!John and Khan meet, it's the first time Sherlock meets John, and the last time John will ever meet Sherlock.
When Smaug dies, that's when Sherlock's spirit chooses to depart the cycle of reincarnation. And when SpaceFuture!John dies, that's when John's spirit chooses to depart the cycle.

Bonus points:
+ other Sherlock characters reincarnate as well
+ Sherlock's not the only one traveling backwards
+ reincarnation and Reichenbach
+ you explain the basic mechanisms of reincarnation (how the reincarnation works, who it applies to in the universe, some (unintended) consequences, etc.)
++ some characters in the crossover stories (Star Trek, The Hobbit) also reincarnate (i.e. Lucas North makes an appearance :D )
++ reincarnation and Reichenbach and The Empty Hearse (Mary optional)
++ you explain the complex mechanisms of reincarnation (how people feel about it, how relationships happen, some complications, etc.)
++ other characters besides Sherlock and John are reincarnated through the stages (i.e. Molly in Middle Earth or Anderson in Space)
++ Sherlock and John are not the only ones who have a tragic love story like this
+++ EVERY CHARACTER in these stories reincarnates somehow (exceptions allowed for peeps like Gandalf)
+++ Sherlock and John meet in other places in time and space besides these 3 places
+++ this story isn't a mere cryfest of angst and hurt, but has its bittersweet moments where Sherlock and John make the best of the time they have
++++ Bilbo's responsibility for Smaug's death is emphasized and explored. AND/OR SpaceFuture!John dies because of Khan's doing somehow.

mental deaging

Sherlock emotionally deages to the age of 14 while retaining his current memories. He covers as best he can while trying to figure out what happened and how it can be fixed. No one notices much difference, except John who notices how terrified he is.

non-consensual haircutting

Some old uni "mates" of Sherlock's (Sebastian's cronies perhaps) meet up with Sherlock under false pretext, then tackle him to the ground and shave him bald, calling it a joke and retribution for his uni deductions about them.

Sherlock is very distressed by this but tries not to show it. People who know Sherlock react in different ways to the incident, but John is furious.

Panic attack, Sherlock thinks John is going to leave

(Anonymous) 2014-04-25 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock does something that he thinks is the last straw, the final thing that will tip the scale and make John leave.

He has a panic attack.

John calms him down (it's a long process) and assures him that no, he's not going to leave, even if Sherlock is an arse.

Monsterlock/Omegaverse Case + Dark Angst

(Anonymous) 2014-04-25 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
Established or Unestablished Rel.

A series of mysterious bonded/kills-human-mate murders. John comes home from an interview SH assigned to him, unknowingly carrying the monster/alpha-in-hiding interviewee's scent/mark/indicator. SH, in jealous rage and surging ownership instincts, does horrible things to John until SH own body collapse in exhaustion.(GoGoImaginationGoAsDarkAsYouCanGo) When he comes to, John is battered bleeding,dying. He calls Mycroft for help. Solves the case by himself. Kills the suspect who is actually the interviewee or keep someplace SH can torture FOREVAH!

Alternate: Hudson calls Lestrade who sees SH in the act but Mycroft takes over before Lestrade can even think of what to do (yes THAT NOT GOOD)Optional Lestrade help solve case.

Plus points: SH mind is aware of the horrors he's doing to John but his body can't stop and won't stop.

How SH & John reconciliate up to author

Alternate 2A: 1 John dies but avenged 2 John dies but suspect is loose
Alternate 3: John broke, in coma, permanent disability,etc
Alternate 4: John dies. Mycroft not being able to take SH grief/guilt 1 clones/creates a John without memory nor scars; 2 Revives John wit memory and scars

Again reconciliation or ending up to author

Sherlock's diary/log book of creating and keeping his monster!Johns in or in a lab underground 221c (octo, were, vamp, goo/jam, tentacle, mer, cat, bunny, ram, bat, reptile/dragon, etc). Mycroft "relocates" the successful but cannot-be-kept-in-cages ones in their own secret baskerville, much to Sherlock's displeasure.Because he has to travel far and it's also the place where Mycroft keeps all his Gregorys and doesn't want his Johns imprinted by someone else.

Some one carves words into Sherlock's skin

(Anonymous) 2014-04-25 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock (and possibly John) gets caught and kidnapped while on a case. While there, they take the time to carve words into Sherlock's skin. Words like 'Freak' and 'Psychopath'
When Sherlock (and John) are rescued, everyone reacts to the injuries and the fact they will most likely permenantly scar.
Lots and lots of h/c from Johnnamd eventual Johnlock would make my life.

Bonuses:
If the words amd insults are all things Sherlock beleives about himself to begin with and this is something the kidnapper plays off of. Once caught the kidnapper still taunts Sherlock in front of everyone. Along the lines of 'at least now everyone can see what he is because it's written right there on his body'
If Anderson (and possibly Sally too) are disturbed by this. They may have not seen eye to eye with sherlock, but this is something else.

John/Sherlock. John is just Sherlock's delusion.

(Anonymous) 2014-04-25 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)

John and Sherlock's friendship is entirely Sherlock's hallucination.

People put up with it, because Sherlock is generally weird, so another weird thing doesn't surprise anybody. He refuses to listen to anybody who tries to make a hint that John isn't real. To keep him calm and relatively stable, they even play along sometimes.

But his mental condition is getting worse. His delusions start to seriously interfere not only with Sherlock's life.

He ends up in a mental hospital and spends quite some time there. When his mind is more or less clear, his doctor suggests him to make a choice: either Sherlock stops holding on to his delusions and gets better, or he'll probably never leave the mental hospital again. Sherlock chooses John...

Things can end here, or there can be more:

John actually exists. Sherlock has met him ones, in St. Barts, when they were talking about becoming flatmates. Sherlock was immediately drawn to him. But something went wrong back then. Maybe John decided to stay with Harry to help her with her alcohol addiction, because she wanted to stop drinking and couldn't do it alone, so she asked him to help her; or maybe somebody suggested John a work and a flat in some other part of the city.

But in Sherlock's mind John and he started sharing the flat on Baker Street and had all those adventures together. But this is actually what John would've been like if he stayed with Sherlock, because Sherlock's delusions are based on his unmistakable opinion about John when they first met.

So, realising all of it, Mycroft finds John so that John can become Sherlock's anchor to reality; John, the real one, can make Sherlock see the difference between reality and fantasies.

Maybe Mycroft offers John money for it, but John refuses. John was quite impressed by Sherlock back when they first met and regretted that they had to part their ways, so he agrees to help Sherlock without thinking twice. He ends up visiting Sherlock, and, slowly but steadily, helps him to find his way to reality. So they actually become friends and maybe lovers, too.

There's no need to stick to an imaginary person when you have the real one as a real friend, partner and lover, so Sherlock is okay (as okay as he can be) and they allow him to leave the hospital, which he does to start living with John.

If they are lovers, please, only top!John.

I'd love angst with a good ending.

Reprompt: Jim/John fluff and mystery (omegaverse?)

(Anonymous) 2014-04-25 09:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry, I don't know why but yesterday when I put up this prompt I put it in part 31 because the sticky post redirected me to there instead of here (original from here:http://sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal.com/20063.html?thread=131198047#t131198047). Also, this is the first time I've posted a prompt so I don't know if I'm doing this right, please correct me if I'm not.

So:

John met Moriarty before meeting Sherlock (maybe he was discharged from the army half a year before?) in between figuring each other out they fell in love. Maybe John saved Jim in an alley from a couple of useless thugs, Jim became intriged by him, deduced him to his shoes (kind of like with Sherlock, they ARE kind of similar in that regard, both geniouses and all) and decided to take him on as his personal physician.

Cue in Jhon falling in love with Jim and Jim doing it too or not at all, I'll leave that to you. Eventually Sherlock and John cross paths, as well as Jim and Sherlock, with John discovering that Jim is a criminal (all through season 1 and 2 but not 3, change the Reichenbach Falls).

I want to see a hopelessly in love John who is feeling guilty for loving Jim and not regretting it when he discovers what he's been up to even if he's falling to pieces.
Also, maybe it could be omegaverse (I'll leave that to you) with Alpha!John and Omega!Jim

Surprise me. It doesn't have to be exceptionally long, but I want sentiment, fluff and feels. It doesn't have to have a happy ending but I'd prefer it if it did.

Mummy was schizophrenic

(Anonymous) 2014-04-26 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Mummy Holmes was schizophrenic. As a child, Sherlock watched her suffer from hallucinations. He was always fearful he could deteriorate in the same way. It is a part of the reason he was terrified of seeing the hound in Baskerville.

Prompt: Sherlock helps a witness, who happens to be a schizophrenic, try to decipher what was real and what was not from what they saw. The Yarders and John are amazed/surprised to see how well Sherlock treats the witness.

Reichenbach Fail, John dies anyway, Massive Angst

[identity profile] vnovice.livejournal.com 2014-04-26 11:19 am (UTC)(link)
I've never understood why Sherlock's plan to fake his death in order to protect his loved ones worked at all. I mean, out of all the people in Moriarty's web, not a single one of them was cruel, angry, or petty enough to brutalize and/or kill John Watson after Sherlock "died"?

I honestly don't buy it. If Sherlock had slipped through their fingers, the first person they would take out their frustrations out on would be John, right? So, I would like someone (one of the snipers maybe?) to ignore Moriarty's orders and just kill John anyway when they find out that their boss and Sherlock are "dead". John is so paralyzed with shock and grief that he can't do anything to save himself, doesn't even see it coming.

I don't mind friendship johnlock or romantic, have your pick.

Bonus! for Sherlock Angst (like seriously massive guilt and horror feels) Because he obviously put all his eggs in one Reichenbach basket, and I want them smashed on the floor.

Re: Reichenbach Fail, John dies anyway, Massive Angst

(Anonymous) 2014-04-26 08:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Seconded!

You know, I wondered that myself, though a bit differently. I expected Moriarty himself to order his killers to kill John (and maybe others, too) in any case, maybe suspecting that Sherlock had an ace up his sleeve. After all, Moriarty promised Sherlock to burn his heart out. Why not do it by giving Sherlock an illusion of control? If Sherlock died he wouldn't have cared anyway that John and maybe Mrs Hudson and Lestrade died, too, if he survived, there would've been a terrible heartbreak and trauma that would've probably led to drugs and other ways of self-destruction, and eventual death.

Sherlock is a figment of Mycrofts imagination

(Anonymous) 2014-04-26 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
When mycroft was little, he'd always told his mummy he wanted a little brother. Someone he could teach to be just as smart as he is. Someone who wouldn't be a /complete/ idiot like everyone else. When he was seven, he finally got what he wanted.

Only he didn't.

Mummy and daddy Holmes didn't know what to do when Mycroft started telling them about his 'baby brother sherlock'.

The delusions only got worse as he got older.

Bonus: everything about his position in the government is a delusion.

Bonus 2: "John Watson" is really Jonathan Hamish Holmes, Mycrofts older brother. He wasn't invalided home from the army, but managed to recieve extended leave time when mummy called him in a panic. Mycroft having had an episode in which he believed he was responsible for Hamish's death ("you know what happened to the other one" HLV)

John and Sherlock had sex a few times before the fall

(Anonymous) 2014-04-27 12:05 am (UTC)(link)
John remembers them as ill-judged fucks fueled by adrenaline, alcohol, and the like. It wasn't unpleasant, but he's got his life with Mary now and that definitely doesn't need to be repeated, thank you very much.

And Sherlock? Well, he'd be the last person to disrupt the Watsons' marriage on purpose... yet he often finds himself groaning through those memories in the dark solitude of 221B.

Office AU - fifty shades

Would love anything, but would love it even more if it was a long one like the books, only cos there needs to be more office AU! :p

Mycroft shows a sentiment to heartbroken Sherlock.

(Anonymous) 2014-04-27 12:36 am (UTC)(link)
No matter what he says, Mycroft loves his little brother and cares about him.

Sherlock is seriously depressed (and I mean real depression here) and heartbroken, because John has moved on with his new family and Sherlock is in love with him, but can't have him. Mycroft brings his devastated brother a kitty or a puppy (preferably a kitty, but I don't insist).

Sherlock doesn't want it and thinks that it has to go, but, eventually, he warms up to it and starts calling it John (regardless of its gender). At least it loves him and him alone and won't leave him behind.

Bonus for happy John/Sherlock (I mean real, human John) in the end.

Sherlock has a new flatmate, John is jealous

[identity profile] missselene-1.livejournal.com 2014-04-27 09:49 am (UTC)(link)
In an attempt to get over John, who's so busy with his life and baby that he barely has time Sherlock, Sherlock finds a new flatmate. He doesn't take them along for cases, but they get along quite well. It's nice to have someone other than the skull to talk to in the evenings, at the very least.

John doesn't find out about it until he stops by to visit Sherlock one day and discovers a guy living in his old bedroom. John gets jealous and angry that Sherlock didn't even tell him about it. Sherlock is, understandably, hurt that John can have a wife and child, but he's apparently not allowed even a flatmate to ease his loneliness. They have an argument, and Sherlock inadvertently reveals he's in love with John.

Faced with this revelation, John has to finally acknowledge his own feelings for Sherlock.
