Prompting Part XXXV


  • 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.

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.

Secrets of a Detective Reprompt

(Anonymous) 2014-04-03 07:26 pm (UTC)(link)
John picks up a round at one of the many hospitals in London. During a late night shift he catches Sherlock sneaking into a patient's room. After doing a little investigating John discovered the room's occupant is one Victoria Trevor.

Sherlock's wife.

She has a terminal illness but cannot take care of herself (paralysis due to brain tumor or some such). But why is Sherlock keeping her a secret? Why did they marry in the first place? How does John react?

Bonus points if A) Lestrade knows (Mystrade a double bonus), B) John is crushed by his UST, C) Sherlock and Victoria had/has a child(ren)

Reprompt: Fuck pranks

[identity profile] 2014-04-03 07:42 pm (UTC)(link)
I hate pranks. I mean, I really really hate pranks. I feel, to paraphrase Melissa McEwan, that most "pranks" are just straight-up bullying disguised with a veneer of "There's something wrong with you if you don't think being humiliated is funny." If I could find the person who invented "screamer" videos I would kill him twice.

With that out of the way, the prompt:

Someone "pranks" John.

The prank turns out to be, for him, a serious PTSD trigger.

Bonus if what's intended only to hilariously "make him jump out of his skin" actually results in days of hypervigilance, persistent sleep disruption, and a recurrence of his nightmares.

Double bonus if John can't admit (even to himself) that he's been triggered.

Sherlock's annoyed at Molly

(Anonymous) 2014-04-03 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Molly and John got upset when Sherlock told her Jim is gay. Okay, lesson learned. So he sees the new fiancé and doesn't say a word about the obvious hard on he has for Sherlock. Molly still gets upset with him!

Sherlock is wondering what the actual fuck and why are humans so confusing?

Bonus: John is wondering why Sherlock doesn't notice John's bisexuality.

Sherlock Centric, Shattered Personality

(Anonymous) 2014-04-04 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
Every person in Sherlock's mind palace represents a fragment of his personality. If they were important enough to cement a place inside his head, they were important enough to mold him in some way.

Jim was there. Jim was there from the start, from the crazy cabbie in 'A Study in Pink'. He's been taking shape since then, finally coming to full form when they met face-to-face at the end of S1.

But now, Jim is dead. That part of Sherlock's personality shatters. What does this do to him? How does this shape S3?

Sherlock wasn't dead after the fall, but was actually dying a very slow, agonizing death. John reaches him and holds him as he dies, singing him a lullaby to put him to sleep one final time.

Breathing really isn't boring

My headcanon, since I first watched the series, is that Sherlock had pneumonia multiple times as a child. His lungs still are not strong. He really shouldn't smoke.

Baby fill for ya

[identity profile] 2014-04-04 04:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Just a little thing. I am not trans* so I hope I haven't offended by trying this. My hands hurt, so this is a pathetic fill, but I may get to it later

Despite what the popular opinion of the uninformed public might be, there was never the moment of Eureka! Sherlock didn't suddenly decide one morning that she, with all the proper bits and all the proper mannerisms, felt like a he. No; there wasn't anything like that. It all began with confusion, realization, and then most importantly: denial.

She, or rather, he, was faced with denial. He denied the part of himself that felt right for months—probably even years. Whenever John referred to him as a woman, regarding the beauty of his figure; eyes lingering at the curves of his hips and the swell of his breasts, he felt like a fraud. He felt like he was deceiving him in some way, despite knowing he was absolved of any blame whatever the case may be.

John and he were in a relationship, quite happily, but with this newfound information, this identity crisis, Sherlock needed a plan.

Firstly, how was he supposed to tell John what was going on? He was a military man, and those types of people could be crass, crude, and the least understanding of people from his experience. Put twenty men in a shower and misogyny and sexism on all levels was bound to come up.

But this was John. Kind, caring John; surely he would understand?

No, Sherlock decided. John was a straight, heterosexual, very sexual man that would scoff at the idea. He wouldn't understand.

God, he'd been thinking about this for days. Weeks if he counted passing thought. Sherlock slammed his head against the table, his long, curly hair pooling by his head. After turning his head and resting his cheek against the cool wood, Sherlock appraised his long locks. He could probably rid himself of that first. He didn't particularly like long hair, but in regards to the general public, men were more willing to listen and underestimate a girl who looked very pretty.

But that wasn't who he was anymore.

Biting his nails, Sherlock punched in a phone number and started to plan. This wasn't something that would happen in a day, or maybe even a year, but it was going to happen. Standing afraid and alone was not something he was used to, and he wasn't about to start now. This was his life and he was taking control.

Sherlock swallowed. Whether John agreed with it or not.

Psychopath Mycroft - mystrade?

[identity profile] 2014-04-04 03:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Tho any pairing would be interesting. OR no pairing


Sherlock makes off-hand comments about Lestrade that Greg never really noticed. Little things about caring not being an advantage, and how different he is. After he starts dating Mycroft they're really happy and everything is good... then Lestrade learns that Mycroft killed someone and doesn't particularly care...or, I don't know. He puts it together that Mycroft is a psychopath and when he says he doesn't really do emotions, he means it literally. Greg then struggles with the fact that Mycroft didn't love him at all, but rather he might see him as an object. Something interesting to toy with for a while. How do they deal with this?

I would prefer that it be an awesome character study rather than a big drama, but if anyone wants to fill it, feel free.

Re: Psychopath Mycroft- Fill - mystrade?

[identity profile] 2014-12-11 06:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure, it was a surprise. Not a big surprise, but a suprise. The cold shoulder when Greg mentioned love, the almost robotic like actions. But the killing was what really gave it away. It had been the middle of the night when a man broke in and tied Greg up. Mycroft had shot him easily. No remorse. No guilt. Just the calculating look he got on his face when he was thinking. That's when Greg knew.
The only surprise was Mycrofts tears when he brought it up. He sobbed that Greg would leave him if he knew. So, Greg stayed. Mycroft explained to him the situation:
"You are a good person, a great lover, an amazing friend," Mycroft murmured. "I don't love you. But, finding someone else as high quality as you would be a hassle."
Greg figured that was the closest thing to a love note that he would ever get.
And, life went on. Greg was more careful around Mycroft after the incident. He wouldn't anger Mycroft or annoy him for fear of his boyfriend loosing control. After a while, it just seemed normal to live life without love. Mycroft would leave him alone for weeks and then show up one day with flowers. He would kill the parking attendant that gave Greg a ticket and send him the fingers.
On their wedding day, Mycroft cried.
"How could I find someone as perfect as you?"
It pained Greg to know Mycroft wasn't talking about love. He was talking about their compatibility. That Greg put up with him and shagged him every couple nights.

But, then again, isn't that what love is?

John, Sherlock, Greg, Mycroft and the other guys are all BAMFy - the only thing that brings them down is when they're (temporarily, by science or magic) turned into girls and have to face 'female problems' (I'm thinking of painful cramps, hormones, aching backs and all the other fun things females have to deal with - just make them really suffer! *evil laugh*)

John/Sherlock, John/Mary, and/or John/Sherlock/Mary or gen - Petshop of Horrors crossover

(Anonymous) 2014-04-04 09:30 pm (UTC)(link)
AU. John, limping and without purpose, one day finds himself in a strange pet shop run by a man who calls himself Count D. D insists that he has the perfect pet for John, one he calls Sherlock. Sherlock, however, doesn't look like a pet at all, but like a man.

What kind of pet Sherlock is, the nature of his care and contracts and whether John falls victim to Count D's usual shenanigans is up to you. John can be with Mary and/or Sherlock, or it could be gen; all I ask us no infidelity or bashing.

Sherlock is terrible at flirting.

(Anonymous) 2014-04-04 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
For reasons unknown to John, Sherlock starts saying chat up lines to him (could be a case, for science or a tip from *insert characters name here/ random magazine name*'s tips to woo John) but really, he's not so good at them.

Instead of them being like "How much does a polar bear weigh? It doesn't matter but at least it broke the ice." It come out more... Sherlockian (for example "How much does a polar bear weigh?" then he gives the average weight of a fully sized polar bear and afterwards stands there doing a rather manic stare because he was told/ read that eye contact is a must.)

Bonus points-

-Sherlock is actually a fantastic flirt but is doing it on purpose for science/ to make John laugh which he's also heard is a great way to seduce people.

-His flirting gets more and more ridiculous as it goes on.

- John decides to give Sherlock a taste of his own medicine after he starts getting annoyed with how long it goes on for and it ends up being a strange flirting war between them which Sherlock DEFINITELY wasn't expecting

I don't know. It popped into my head after a guy tried to flirt with me at work (which is strange in itself) ... At least I think that's what he was doing...

It could be done as a 5 +1 perhaps or anything really. Also RTYIs would be awesome. Please and thank you!!!

The life of a pet

"Good boy," Irene crooned, rolling her hips and watching John come to pieces beneath her. She'd kept him like this for the better part of an hour now, fucking him slow and deep until all the fire went out of him and he became a pliant little kitten, squirming back onto the thick toy, begging to come. "Such a good boy," she purrs again, wrapping an elegant hand around his weeping cock. "Sherlock really outdid himself this time. You're the best pet he's had by far." John can only mewl in reply.

Someone posted this on a Tumblr fic challenge and I just couldn't get it out of my head. The idea of Sherlock breaking John and than passing him on to Irene and Irene playing with him until he is incoherent hmmmm.

Psychological torture

(Anonymous) 2014-04-05 06:12 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock ends up in Moriarty's grasp and is tortured psychologically. By the time John gets a hold of Sherlock again, the consulting detective's mind has been broken to the point of him reverting to a childlike state.

Bonus if childlike Sherlock only recognizes John

John/Mary + John/Sherlock (no cheating), John can't keep up

(Anonymous) 2014-04-05 10:26 am (UTC)(link)
Post-HLV, everything is going right for John: he's still with Mary, and after a long discussion with her, he's also become romantically involved with Sherlock. He spends days running after Sherlock and helping track down Moriarty while constantly checking his phone, waiting for the moment Mary goes into labor.

It all happens seemingly at once: they take down Moriarty, and shortly after Mary finally gives birth to their daughter. Then, as soon as John has a moment to spare, he and Sherlock have sex for the first time.

And then it all spirals out of control — for John, anyway. He's exhausted with the new baby, but every time he's not caring for her, he's at Sherlock side, and if they aren't pursuing a new case, Sherlock is insatiable. Mary may not be quite so hungry for it, but she certainly wants sex, too. He can't even think about his job, and how he'll have to return to it soon or be sure he can leave it and remain financially stable enough for the baby.

John's constantly out of energy trying to fulfill the needs of the three most important people in his life, but he's also so blindingly happy he can't bring himself to tell either Mary or Sherlock that he needs to slow down.

So what happens then?

Alpha!Moran keeps omega!Mycroft in a cellar

(Anonymous) 2014-04-05 03:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Nobody knows Moran was working for Moriarty. Nobody knows about his secret hideout. And nobody even knows The British Government has been kidnapped. Yet.

But with his heat fast approaching and his suppressants nowhere in sight Mycroft is getting desperate because he would have no choice but to give in to his captor and, according to law, a bound omega essentially becomes a property of his alpha. He could spend the rest of his life in this hell-hole, leaving his country defenseless.

Is anybody looking for him and, more importantly, would they be able to rescue him in time?
(Either option works for me, btw.)

I have a thing for fics with Sherlock or John receiving permanent and debilitating injuries... Such as being paralyzed, or having a limb amputated.

However, there aren't many fics like this in the fandom.

If one of you could write me a story where Sherlock or John is injured in this fashion, I would love you forever and ever. Johnlock preferred, but Gen is okay too.

My internets (or a return fill within certain parameters) for this prompt. (Reprompt from a while ago.)

Molly loves being 'forced' to do things. Greg loves being in charge. One of their favorite games involves Greg 'making' her wear a corset and lacing it tight, with her begging him to stop, that she can't breathe, etc.
