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.


  • 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

John/Sherlock's twin brother. It's Sherlock's twin instead of Mary, Angst.

(Anonymous) 2015-07-04 05:13 pm (UTC)(link)
A very few people who know Sherlock also know that he's got an estranged twin brother. Somehow, some time after The Fall, John meets that brother. It doesn't take much time for John to believe that it's not Sherlock, even though they look similar. Maybe the first encounter is very unpleasant, because John is angry, thinking that it's Sherlock at first. Nevertheless, the two start meeting sometimes, and, eventually, John asks him out on a date. Unlike Sherlock, Sherlock's twin brother isn't married to his work. Bonus if the twin is anti-social, too, but less sociopathic and more shy and tends to avoid people altogether. He's clever, too, and John likes him, even though it's not Sherlock and he's aware of it.

So, they start dating and after some time John is determined to propose the man. Which he does. Sherlock's return is, of course, disastrous.

Pining, sad Sherlock, please. It's The End Of An Era. Not only John is going to create a family with another person and they won't be able to be close friends again and live together, but that person is Sherlock's own twin brother. It could have been Sherlock himself.

(I prefer a regular AU, but I don't mind an omegaverse, as long as John is an Alpha and Sherlock and his twin are Omegas. Mpreg is totally fine, too).

Hi OP,

Don't know if you are still checking this but I wanted to let you know that I have started writing this. It's still very first-drafty and will be a little while longer before it's readable but I wanted you to know things are happening.

Of course, I'm still very interested! Thanks for letting me know. I'm so glad your story is going to happen! :)
