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.

Mystrade, Angsty with a hopeful ending, NC-17 if possible

(Anonymous) 2014-10-08 09:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Not long after starting to work with self-proclaimed "consulting detective" Sherlock Holmes, Greg Lestrade became aware of Sherlock's brother Mycroft. Greg isn't really sure how they went from strangers to fuck-buddies bypassing 'friends' entirely, but they did. It's a good system Greg thinks, as uncomplicated and satisfying as anything in life can be. Greg suspects that Mycroft would agree, even though from time to time he will extend a dinner invitation or try to start a conversation about something deeper than the weather. Greg is quick to deflect and ignore those moments, worried about what he would see if he looked closer at Mycroft. Either he's as big a posh twat as he appears, leaving Greg in a position where he has to end the arrangement or fuck someone he doesn't really like. Or even scarier, he'll see someone he does like and can't have in any sort of real world way. So keep it light and cordial, with amazing sex, better for everyone. Right?

Mycroft never expected to fall into a trap of such common emotions, but he can't help being captivated by the Detective Inspector. The more he knows about Greg the more he wants to know, and that is worrisome. He'll have to content himself with a physical relationship, and should consider himself lucky to avoid the time and effort that a serious relationship requires. Right?

And then Sherlock jumps. Lestrade can't stop himself from rushing to Mycroft's side to lend support. Mycroft may know that his brother isn't dead, but Sherlock is still in danger, Mycroft is aware that he may never see his brother again. He may have to lie about specifics, but the emotional distress is genuine. Mycroft can't be blamed for taking comfort where he can. Right?

And so the boys find them themselves in a relationship without ever deciding to start one. Everything is working, so there's no need to talk about it. Right?

And then Greg finds out Sherlock is alive.

Young John has an abusive father who when his gambling debts become dangerously high, sells John into the sex trade. A few years down the line, Lestrade has been roped into his first undercover op and is screwing it up because he looks suspicious because he won't sleep with any of the prostitutes. John tells Lestrade what's up and offers to help with his cover if Lestrade makes sure that John gets out of there once the op's over. They have angsty fucks because Lestrade feels guilty and like he's taking advantage of young John and John feels rejected that the one nice guy he's met and idolises a little as his savior is only fucking him to keep his cover. Once the op's over and John rescued (and of course he got injured while trying to keep Lestrade safe) they both sadly go their separate ways. But that means that later down the track when they meet again via Sherlock, they meet each other on more equal footing and have a healthy relationship with much fluff.

Yeah. I got excited by JK Rowling's riddle and it's also the first day in weeks that I've been sort of able to fight my own personal Dementors back so, I thought about prompting something that has the potential to be cheerful and try and share the good mood around.

The subject title is your first line. Go nuts with this. You want a Harry Potter cross over? Go for it. You want to make bbc John meet Elementary Joan? Fabulous! Secret romantic getaway for John and his beloved? Wonderful! Anything else? Priceless.

Seriously, all I ask is no non-con or anything too angsty as it's not my cup of tea at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

Geniuses (and their sidekicks) meet

[identity profile] 2014-10-09 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd love a fic in which Sherlock meets other geniuses (e.g. Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, Temperance Brennan from Bones, Iron Man, Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, ACDs Sherlock etc.) How do they interact with each other?

Bonus cookies for them meeting in unlikely circumstances and neither of them being able to deal with the situation so their sidekicks have to rush over to help.

Re: Geniuses (and their sidekicks) meet

[identity profile] emily robbins (from 2015-01-22 06:51 pm (UTC)(link)

Breaking Point.

(Anonymous) 2014-10-10 08:52 am (UTC)(link)
(As far as I am aware this hasn't been done before)

Mycroft and Sherlock are locked in a room (Most likely Sherlock is doing an experiment of some sort?) and Mycroft's been drugged with something that makes him... feel or at least acknowledge his feelings like a 'normal' person would. They're bickering as they usually do and then Sherlock says something about Mycroft's constant intrusions into Sherlock's life and how Mycroft's an insufferable git, and Mycroft just snaps. Like full on screaming and crying at Sherlock. With his shoulders shaking, his breath catching, and it looks like it actually hurts him to talk.

He brings up all the times Sherlock ever hurt him (and my personal headcanon says Sherlock physically hurt Mycroft a lot when he was high) but how he always stuck around because he's a good brother. How he always stuck around because he had his own troubles with his brilliant brain and no one was ever there to help him, he had to help himself and he never wanted Sherlock to feel like he had. I don't particularly care what exactly they say to each other, or whether Sherlock actually feels guilty for how he treats his brother. But I do want Mycroft at some point to just fall to his knees and scream 'God, I hate you more than you could know!' but have it be clear that he loves Sherlock just as much.

Basically, I just really want Mycroft snapping the way 'normal' people do. Where there is just too much bottled inside, someone says something and you snap. And everything just comes pouring out and you can't stop yourself. You feel so much you can barely breathe, yet somehow you're still screaming and crying. I want THAT with Mycroft because of Sherlock.

Oh. If any pairings are going to be added, I prefer Mystrade. And am not exactly a fan of Holmescest.

(Also, Mycroft says 'Umbrella Corporation')

Overcoming Germophobia for Love

[identity profile] 2014-10-11 08:13 am (UTC)(link)
I have selective germophobia. Sometimes it's something I can ignore or forget about, but things like direct physical contact (handshakes, kissing, intercourse) with other people is repulsive to me. Logically, I know physical contact with people generally will not kill me, but reason does not always break a phobia. The thing is, I am not asexual and I desperately crave intimacy; it's an awful dichotomy to live with. I need to be EXTREMELY comfortable with someone to willingly exchange my personal culture of microbiota with theirs without having a internal "cooties!" freakout.

So! Can I have a germophobic Sherlock or Mycroft craving physical contact and intimacy with their significant other, but forced to battle their phobia in order to achieve it.

Things like having to suppress the urge to spit after a very lovely kiss. Bundling up in long sleeves and pants when cuddling. Gloved hand holding. Worst of all, trying to explain this frustration with their significant other, and working out the particulars of their relationship.

("I'm not washing my hands because I don't like you. In fact, I like you more than most of the people on earth, and find you rather attractive as well. I just can't stand the idea of your skin cells and bacteria rubbing off on my hand or on my face, so please give me back the soap.")

I'm not particularly fond of Molly or Moriarty pairings with Sherlock and Mycroft. Squicks include watersports and scat (duh).

Warehouse 13 Crossover

(Anonymous) 2014-10-11 10:02 am (UTC)(link)
Mycroft's umbrella is an artifact, born from a moment where he and Sherlock were attacked, and Sherlock lay bleeding out on the ground as Mycroft fought like a mad man with his umbrella to get rid of the guys and go to Sherlock's aid. Whatever properties the umbrella takes on are up to you. Whatever properties you give it, I want the downside to be that prolonged use of the umbrella slowly drains the life from its wielder, which is why Sherlock is so angry at Mycroft, because Mycroft won't leave the umbrella alone, because Mycroft is sentimental about it. The umbrella is proof of his love for Sherlock. He loves his brother SO MUCH he managed to imbue an otherwise normal umbrella with power.

Bonus points for Warehouse 13 getting a ping about it and sending Myka/Pete out or Claudia/Steve to get it, and Mycroft is like 'I have already assured your Regents that the Warehouse will get my Umbrella when I am dead, not before then.' Cue Mrs F and the Regents being like 'please don't upset Mr Holmes. He's the current British Government and we'd really rather not be on his bad side...' and cue Sherlock stealing a Tesla to investigate.
Also bonus points if Sherlock is the one who sends the ping, in an attempt to get the Umbrella away from Mycroft because it's slowly killing him.

(Mycroft says 'hunky dory', even though he's dying. Wow. Mycroft. Wow.)

Incubus/Succubus AU.

The Incubus and the Succubus aren't two different creatures, but one. Capable of changing their presented gender to maximize their ability to seduce their victim. They feed off the sexual energy of their victim, first through dreams and then in reality, until they simply fade away.

John Watson has been having dreams. Not the usual ones with the Afghan sunshine blistering down onto dried blood, these new dreams are darker. A woman in a dark coat. Collar turned up. She has curling, dark hair. Cheekbones. Her lips. He can't get the dreams out of his head. One day he finally meets her. Only, it's not her. Sherlock reminds him so much of his dream girl, he can't look away. He isn't gay. He's not. But something about Sherlock means that all that doesn't matter. It's all fine.

Sherlock has a hunger that John can't fill. Yet, John fascinates Sherlock in a way that no one else ever has. He begins to care for him. When John starts feeling weary, sick, Sherlock realizes that he has to make a choice. Leave John to recover or stay with him and let him fade away.

Foster Father Mycroft.

(Anonymous) 2014-10-12 07:16 am (UTC)(link)
By day, Mycroft is the British Government, but by night, he's Foster Father Mycroft, coming home to a house full of children ages 7-20, because he fosters children from past abusive homes or those children with abandonment issues (most likely all of them). The elder ones have stayed because Mycroft told them they could leave whenever THEY wanted and they haven't found anywhere else they feel safe yet. And Mycroft loves them all dearly, and they do love him, but sometimes it's very tiring because some of the younger ones are newly come to living there and they're going through the stage where they do everything they can to test whether Mycroft was genuine when he said he would never kick them out. So nights like that, the elder kids try and help out, making sure Mycroft has a cup of tea and is comfortable, reading to the younger ones and getting them settled into bed. That sort of thing.

And there are the random times where an important meeting gets interrupted by Mycroft's specially deemed 'Daddy Croft' phone (named by the children, of course) ringing and Mycroft is like 'I'm sorry, Prime minister, I need to take this.' and he answers his phone to discover that Jackson has gotten himself stuck up one of the trees in the backyard again. Or that Miriel has sprained her ankle at ballet practice. Hell, even that Uncle Sherlock has broken in and possibly set off a bomb in the kitchen because it's a bloody mess and all Uncle Sherlock will say is 'Experiment!' before kicking them all out.

Mycroft being Foster Father Mycroft because Not!Anthea was a child who went through the system and spent a long time going from broken home to broken home and never feeling safe, never feeling like she belonged anywhere in the world. And Mycroft decided he'd try and make it so other children never felt like she had.

I want it. Give it to me.

tl;dr: Mycroft fosters children from abusive homes, and those with abandonment issues. He's still the British Government. Give me all the random shenanigans that ensue from this.

Crack: John thinks Sherlock is an idiot

(Anonymous) 2014-10-13 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
So, when Sherlock first lays eyes on John, it's love at first sight. Unfortunately, Sherlock is sort of a two-year-old about emotions, and gets clumsy, tongue-tied and stupid every time he tries to speak to John. Think bad rom-com levels of crush behavior. As they move in together and everyone goes on about how brilliant Sherlock is, John is left wondering if they're talking about the same Sherlock Holmes. Because the Sherlock he knows is barely capable of stringing together a coherent sentence.

Mycroft is Moriarty

(Anonymous) 2014-10-13 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
I think I've seen pretty much everyone else but him - even Mrs. Hudson!

So, could I please have some Mycroft as Moriarty? Could be that he was him the entire time & Richard Brook really was an actor, or maybe Mycroft took up the mantle when Sherlock was about to be exiled (cause him suddenly reappearing at that exact moment was a tad convenient). Or, you could even have Jim & Mycroft tag-teaming being "Moriarty." Whatever floats your boat.

Please, I'd like Sherlock not to know that it's him, though he's welcome to figure it out eventually.

Any/no pairing is fine.

Somewhere in the midst of being a consulting criminal and obsessing about Sherlock and all, Moriarty starts sending dick pics. Along with the kind of cringe-worthy pick-up lines you'd normally find on Sherlock (or John or Mycroft or Lestrade or some combination thereof) can't get him to stop, since he keeps changing numbers and whatnot.

Sherlock is convinced there are secret hidden messages, though, and insists on over-analyzing each one as it comes in.

Android, abuse/neglect -Any two (gen or not gen)

(Anonymous) 2014-10-13 10:46 am (UTC)(link)
Partially inspired by Blinky bad robot : Character A is an android that can think and feel but there is huge dissonance between what they are thinking and what they are able to (as a "robot") actually express and say.

Character B receives A in a very bad point in their life or when they are starting to go downhill and takes it out on A.

A either rebels or B eventually starts seeing A as a friend and treating them with respect ...or something really this part is fuzzy to me and the only thing I really would like to see is the above two.

Bonus: Android character is very insightful sometimes.

Bonus: Human character sometimes sees the android opening its mouth and trying to say "prohibited" words out loud , expressing human emotion like confusion after being hit for no reason, body twitches towards deadly objects etc.

Bonus: Creepiness

Bonus: Android starts out almost child like in their personality and pretty innocent . Does not end up like that. Human character is...actually a bit ashamed or upset and blames themselves for it.

Bonus: If it rebels...they make a friend and escape with said friend!

(Anonymous) 2014-10-13 07:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Alright, for a while now, I've wanted to see a Sherlock HDM/Daemon AU where:

---Sherlock has a raven daemon (ravens being highly intelligent creatures that are often considered ill omens due to their association with death)
---John has a wolf daemon (wolves in addition to their reputation as loyal, powerful creatures, have been found to frequently have symbiotic relationships with ravens)
---Moriarty has a magpie daemon (magpies are close relatives to ravens and likewise noted for their intelligence. they have a reputation as thieves- in fact, the song Moriarty famously danced to in the scene where he stole the crown jewels is "The Thieving Magpie")

Outside of these things, I don't really have a specific preference for the plot. Angst, fluff, crack, whatever floats your boat.

TW Kidnapping/child abuse/other things

(Anonymous) 2014-10-14 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
Mycroft has such a problem with food because when he was young he was kidnapped and locked in a basement somewhere, he was fed and given water enough to keep him alive, and he lived stuck in that basement for years at the mercy of his kidnapper. One day the police caught the kidnapper, (maybe Mycroft wasn't the only one kidnapped?) but they didn't find the house Mycroft was being held in until days later and by the time they found him he was little more than skin and bones, barely clinging to life. Eventually he recovered and returned home to his parents, but nothing was like it had been before.

And then his mother had Sherlock, and Sherlock wasn't ever allowed to know about what had happened to his brother. By the time Sherlock was old enough to be able to deduce people with any level of accuracy, the only evidence that remained was Mummy constantly fussing over Mycroft and making sure that he always had something to eat all the time, and the fact that Mycroft would eat every meal like it was his last, and Mycroft's fear of the dark which persisted into his adult life. (Mummy's even made Anthea promise to keep chocolate and energy bars hidden in the cars and in Mycroft's desk because she still worries.)

Sherlock finds out because there is a case that seems eerily similar to Mycroft's, and the Yard goes back over old files to compare and work out if they have a copy cat. They discover that from the older case there was one survivor but his name has been redacted, and Sherlock wants Mycroft to clear it, except Mycroft won't and he won't explain why. Sherlock continues to push, and Mycroft continues to refuse, until the Yard manages to get hold of one of the officers who had been on the case, and the truth comes out in all of it's disgusting and heartbreaking glory.

Yes Minister

(Anonymous) 2014-10-14 06:39 am (UTC)(link)
In New Zealand we have a comedy show called '7 Days' and one of the games they play on the show is a game called 'Yes Minister' where they get members of parliament to come onto the show and answer 'yes' and 'no' questions given to them by the panel. However, the minister isn't allowed to answer 'yes' or 'no' or 'yeah' or 'nope' or any variation of those. None of the questions are serious questions they're silly things because it's a comedy show, but it's great seeing the politicians getting flustered. Some of the politicians own it, they just take all the questions in stride, but some of them do kind of lose it. And once they say 'yes' or 'no' they're out.

I don't know if Britain has anything like this? But I would love to see something like this happen to Mycroft, he'd be using a different title, of course because 'British Government' doesn't cut it. But 'Minor Government Official' might? (And maybe he's there because whoever was meant to go can't, and whoever Mycroft's superiors are want him to go.) And the panel would just bombard him with the most ridiculous questions ever, ranging from his sex life to 'doesn't the sky look lovely today?' to 'who do you want to be prime minister?' And Mycroft wouldn't be allowed to say 'yes' or 'no' and he wouldn't be allowed to repeat a previous answer, and he's not allowed to leave a question unanswered. I would just love him trying to remain dignified while he's being interrogated about personal things or just random useless things. (And of course, Sherlock loves it.)

Here's a video of a Yes Minister segment.

(Mycroft this is not a kangaroo court. Calm down.)

Mycroft used to be promiscuous

A young Mycroft does what he has to in order to get ahead in his career... including providing sexual favors. He tells himself that such acts are insignificant, so why does he is he feeling distressed? It's just physical. There's no need to get sentimental about things like virginity or sex.

Years later he decides to enter into a relationship with a certain Detective Inspector, but finds himself influenced by the past in ways which hinder their future.

When the Characters Get Sick....

Sherlock is, surprisingly, a very good patient because he doesn't get sick that often, but when he does, he's too miserable to even complain or put up much of a fight.

It's Molly who's actually the worst patient of them all. A sick Molly is as much of a terror as Sherlock at his best--she even terrifies Jim when she's sick!

Read the reviews. Then write a fanfic.

(Mycroft says "french phrases". I have no doubt someone could come up with some.)

John/Sherlock - John is Moriarty's little brother.

Much to Sherlock and Mycroft's surprise, John is Moriarty's little brother. I mean Mycroft level of overprotective and doting older brother. Would do anything for him. Those people he 'killed'? Are happily living in another country or were "not very nice" people.

+"You are not allowed to mess with my friends Jim!"
+Jim and Mycroft have tea and talk about who's brother is better (with added flirting?)
+Sherlock gets the shovel talk from Jim

I have looked everywhere and could not find a single story where John is secretly Moriarty's brother. So please dear lovely writers, may I have it? Pretty please? <3

OP, I was wondering if I could dabble in a little Dark!John if I decide to fill this? :)

Dark to semi dark Sherlock and Bamf!John - slavery , abuse of trust

(Anonymous) 2014-10-16 07:10 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock tries to go all dark Sherlock on John by kidnapping him and getting him to be all slave like to him. John just laughs (to keep from crying and yelling ) because he has way too many tricks up his sleeve to fall for that!

An idea (bonus): Sherlock is a supernatural being who is used to being high up in the chain of supernatural beings. He thinks that after getting to know John and going through cases and such John will be easily controlled . Turns out John is a much rarer creature then Sherlock or Mycroft gave him credit for . Bamf!John deflecting all magic and what not.

Another idea: Sherlock is told by the British Government he can't have John as a slave after all...his family is on the same level as Mycroft and Harry would NEVER allow it.
