Prompting Part XXXVII

This is the new prompting post for the Sherlock Prompting Meme. Prompts from LJ can still be filled there with links here or filled here in the new overflow post.

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

  • Please do not re-post prompts unless the last time they were prompted was on an older part. Simply put: ONE posting of each prompt per part.

  • 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

Human Pet au - Catlock, non-con

(Anonymous) 2017-01-16 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Certain sections of the population are deemed sub-human and are sold as pets. These people are usually trained from an early age to behave like a particular animal, microchipped, and sometimes neutered, devocalized, and "declawed" before being sent to a pet shop. The really rich pay for surgeries and treatments to make their pets even more animal like. (This can range from giving them ears and a tail, to paws and fur, to modified genitalia)

After getting back from Afghanistan, John's therapist recommends getting a pet, so he heads to the shelter. There he finds and older cat, declawed and devocalized, but not neutered. The workers at the shelter try to warn him that the cat is really troublesome, but John decides to take Sherlock home anyway.

He quickly learns how unprepared he is.

(Disclaimer: declawing and devocalizing your pets is awful, don't do it) (But also, I want to see it happen to Sherlock)

ABO Feral Omegas

(Anonymous) 2017-01-16 09:45 pm (UTC)(link)
An ABO verse where omegas aren't considered to be much more intelligent than dogs. With a fairly small population of omegas, not many people get to find out differently. This belief came about for a variety of reasons, starting with their rate of development, which is much slower than either alphas or betas. It takes longer for their brains to develop enough for speech. There is also the matter of their heats, which last a month long and leave them largely incapable of rational thought. Lastly, societal prejudices led to a lack of effort in socializing omegas, meaning they don't have a chance to learn skills that would help demonstrate their intelligence.

As a result, not long after birth parents of omegas either 1) send them to a pound or shop where alphas and betas can adopt them, 2) find someone suitable to adopt them directly (it's considered to be kind of like arranged marriage) 3) keep them at home, but treat them like a pets (This is somewhat rare as incest is frowned upon and the expectation for having an omega in your home is that you'll have sex with them)

So omega children largely go feral, See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feral_child

Families typically consist of Two Alphas or an Alpha and a Beta, sometimes if a family can afford to raise one, they'll have an omega. (Older omegas without a family are like stray dogs) Sometimes a single Alpha will keep an omega, but it's considered to be a bit unseemly. Any children born to an omega aren't theirs, they are considered to belong to whoever is keeping them.

Anyway, I want to see John taking in Feral!Omega!Sherlock and being surprised at how intelligent he is.

Repressed sub!Mycroft needs some care after TFP, D/s AU

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
Mycroft has been a sub all his life, but has always perceived it as a big weakness. Submitting to someone requires full trust, and Mycroft trusts very, very few people. He taught himself to suppress all his submissive urges early on. Nothing should stand in the way of him caring for his younger brother and sister. What happens to Eurus only cements his belief that he needs to be in control and aware of his surroundings constantly.

The events of TFP are too much even for his legendary self-control, though. He is dropping hard, and has no idea what to do about it. Years of repression have taken a toll on him, and his usual coping mechanisms are not enough anymore. His little brother has started looking out for him, though, and notices the signs.

Sherlock: "Um...Mycroft, make sure he's looked after. He's not as strong as he thinks he is."
Lestrade: "Yeah, I'll take care of it".
(Can be Mystrade, but doesn't have to be. ;))

gen or any, young Sherlock accidentally outs his kidnapper, warning: possible abuse/human trafficing

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
When Sherlock finds his guardian to be annoying, he sometimes calls a hotline to report him/her/them. His latest call was to the prevention of human trafficking to complain that he's not allowed to leave his room and made to do tedious brain puzzles.

Because of his record for doing this sort of thing, Sherlock's a bit surprised that this new detective is taking the investigation so seriously. None of the others did. And the detective's just trying to teach Sherlock a lesson, surely, when he tells Sherlock he's found his family. The one he was kidnapped from. And how brave he is to have come forward, especially after all those failed attempts for attention. That can't be true. Right?

Sherlock's age is up to you. Feel free to make this part of Sherlock's background, or to make an AU incorporating characters from the show. Whether the kidnapper treated Sherlock kindly, creepily, or cruelly is up to you.

Spoiler warning, Gen or any, Sherlock's sibling is protective of him

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
SPOILERS for series 4, particularly episode 3

Au version of episode 3. Yes, it's true. Eurus did cause her brother's friend to die. But Sherlock didn't just forget about his sister. He forgot about what his friend did too. To him.

Eurus (or Euros, if you prefer) isn't a complete psychopath. She's just really, really protective of her brother. She didn't mean to kill Victor; she just wanted him to go away forever and never hurt her brother again. For all her genius, she was still a child and didn't really understand death.

And now she's gotten free of her prison, and she finds people are STILL HURTING her brother. So of course she does something. She has to stop people from hurting her brother.

Note: it's up to you whether or not she targets John as one of the people who hurt Sherlock, but please don't have her kill him or cause lasting damage. It's also up to you whether Trevor hurt Sherlock in an actual significant way or whether Eurus just perceived him as hurtful to her Sherlock.

A Mycroft/Lady Smallwood fic involving that vintage movie at the beginning of TFP

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 08:47 am (UTC)(link)
I really need more Smallcroft, in any form, but the teasing echo between their banter in TLD and the movie Mycroft is watching at the beginning of TFP is just too good to be ignored.

So, is Mycroft rehearsing a date, or reliving one ? Or something else ? It can be fluff or smut, really anything you like.

Bonus if Mycroft teases Lady Smallwood about her codename.

johnlock - fuck or die - the final problem

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 03:27 pm (UTC)(link)
That scene from the final problem where Sherlock is given a choice of either killing Mycroft or John, except the choice is actually to have sex with one of them. Maybe instead of tranquilizer darts, they get shot up with aphrodisiacs to help them along.

The choice is pretty obvious, there is no way Sherlock would do anything like that with Mycroft. So he and John have to get down to business with Eurus and Mycroft watching.

No established relationship in this one, John should be clinging hard to his straightness.

Sherlock/Any warning: non-con genital spanking

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Someone, or several someones, spanks Sherlock long and hard, concentrating on his genitals. They use their hand and other implements. Sherlock does not want or enjoy this. It's not only humiliating, it's horrifically painful.

Bonus: For whatever reason (short of fem-lock) Sherlock has a cunt.

Bonus 2: object insertion as part of the torture and/or rape as his torturer gets off on the beating.

SPOILERS Sherlock coping with trauma

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 04:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Season 4 spoilers, particularly ep 3


So...it's basically canon now that Sherlock faced serious trauma at a young age, possibly even prolonged abuse, considering some of the things Eurus said; Redbeard may have been the worst thing she did but it didn't sound like it was the only thing (made him scream all night?)

He reacted to that trauma by rewriting his own memories, successfully completely forgetting that he even had a sister. Once a brain develops a successful coping mechanism, it isn't unusual for the brain to return to that coping method whenever faced with new traumas.

I want to know what else Sherlock re-wrote or erased throughout his life. Does he even properly remember what happened in Serbia? Did something happen to him at school? And if he got back his childhood memories, what other memories might soon follow?

Baskerville really was trying make superdogs (besitality)

(Anonymous) 2017-01-17 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
So instead of developing a drug that induces fear, they were working on a chemical that would alter humans so that they would not only be sexually receptive to dogs, they would also be able to carry their puppies. They planned to set up a breeding program once it was complete and then the puppies from that would be the superdogs. The drug they create has these effects, but also the fear inducing ones from canon.

When Sherlock figures out all of baskerville's secrets, he figures out this too, but it's too late, John has already been pretty heavily dosed with the drug and his body is going to change over the coming months, there is no cure. Sherlock, feeling guilty about his part in it, doesn't mention the dog breeding part of it to John and everything proceeds like canon.

Time passes, John notices that his body is changing somehow and that he's developed weird urges. Sherlock is unusually nice and has taken to bring Toby the bloodhound with them on cases...

John was a serial killer

John has clearly been held there awhile since he's fully trained into horse like mannerisms and hardly recognizes Sherlock.

Sherlock has memory problems

(Anonymous) 2017-01-18 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Due to a head injury, Sherlock forgets all the little facts he knows that allow him to make deductions. He can't see hairs on someone's sleeve and know if they are human or animal, he can't name perfumes, he can't tell how old bruises are or any of that stuff.

In fact some of his personal memories are scrambled as well, he can generally remember who people are, but he's fuzzy on how he met them and sometimes his exact relationship with them.

The absolute worst part is that he keeps forgetting things he just learned (or relearned). How can he solve any cases like this?

Praise kink, humiliation, puppy play, exhibitionism

(Anonymous) 2017-01-19 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
John quickly discovers that Sherlock will do just about anything for him if he applies enough praise at the right time. John uses this to convince Sherlock into doing humiliating things in bed. Sherlock of course sees what John is doing, but loves the praise too much to refuse to debase himself. This culminates in Sherlock agreeing to be John's dog when they aren't on the case and letting their friends see.

tldr: John gets off on humiliating Sherlock, Sherlock gets off on John's praise; they find a middle ground in puppy play

Feel free to include age play, edging, enemas, watersports, and comeplay as well. Just nothing painful for Sherlock.

Sherlock is addicted to John's cock

(Anonymous) 2017-01-19 07:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Sherlock discovers that fucking himself on John's cock is even better than nicotine or other, harder drugs. Like his other addictions, he uses it to help him think. Whenever he gets stuck on a case, he'll pull John's pants down and take what he wants. He even gives John viagra to make sure he can be hard for Sherlock.

John is rather off put by Sherlock's new addiction, but figures it's better than him using drugs. That doesn't mean John isn't a bit grumpy about the way Sherlock is using him though.

Holmes brothers are angels - no really! JohnLock

(Anonymous) 2017-01-20 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
Everyone knows the Holmes brothers aren't entirely...normal, but what most people don't know, is that that's because the Holmes brothers aren't entirely human either.

They are angels, but don't for a minute think that that makes them into do-gooding, harp playing winged cherubs. Do a bit of research and you'll discover angels might be on the side of good, but they are warriors, dangerous ones. Dispassionate yet dedicated, most of the villains that encounter either Holmes have no idea just how truly dangerous and formidable the brothers really are.

Only a very select few know the truth and Mycroft and Sherlock intend to keep it that way, but when John accidently finds out the truth of Sherlock's nature all hell breaks loose (pardon the pun)

JohnLock "alone protects" but why?

(Anonymous) 2017-01-20 12:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Alone is what protects me" Those words have haunted John Watson from the moment Sherlock said them. Alone isn't protection, alone is vulnerable and dangerous, John knows that, so why would Sherlock want that, what could have happened to make Sherlock think the only way to protect himself is being alone, and more to the point, protect him from what?

Mycroft could give him answers but for once, makes it clear that this part of Sherlock's past is private and not even Mycroft will break that. But John can't let go the idea the man he loves feels loneliness is safer. Why?

Perhaps some answers can be found in the elusive third Holmes brother, Sherriford, but is John ready for what the past can unleash?

JohnLock Sherlock leaves and becomes detective bros with Irene

(Anonymous) 2017-01-20 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock, against all his own instincts, and Mycroft's advice, somehow fell in love with John Watson. Foolish in the extreme, yes, because John is straight and happily married to his ex-assasin Mary, there is no room for Sherlock's foolish feelings. He knows how much he hurt John over his fake death, so when Mary announces her pregnancy, Sherlock makes a decision - he will leave, and after leaving a healthy trust fund to baby Watson, he disappears from London.

What he didn't expect was to somehow fall into a new detective partnership with Irene Adler of all people, but somehow the partnership is exactly what Sherlock needs and even Mycroft can't complain about how The Woman is helping Sherlock (and no, scolding and sex are not any part, after all lesbians don't tend to go for gay men)

But this new calm is shattered when during a surprisingly pleasant visit home to Mycroft with Irene, he bumps into John, despite being a married man and seemingly content with his new life, well...John has never dealt well with Irene being in Sherlock's life, but this time may just change everything...

JohnLock ending please. BAMF!Irene - no Irene/Sherlock please. Mystrade welcome. BAMF/jealous!John
