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.

Sherlock/Any-Canon-Character, extreme humiliation

(Anonymous) 2014-11-21 08:40 pm (UTC)(link)
The recent, most excellent and ridiculously hot CAM/Sherlock fill, Ownership (, showed me a kink I didn't know I had - shamefully-aroused-by-extreme-humiliation!Sherlock. So that's the prompt. Sherlock helplessly aroused by extreme humiliation and ashamed of his arousal. Any pairing. Completely consensual, completely non-consensual, or anything in between. No scat, please, but otherwise any/all kinks are groovy.

John "Friendzoned on three continents" Watson

(Anonymous) 2014-11-22 07:38 am (UTC)(link)
John's army buddies do call him "Three Continents Watson," but it's because he's so terrible at actually making women stick around long enough for sex. Maybe it's his fault in some way (intentional self-sabotage or not) or maybe he just has comedically bad luck, but either way, he's been publicly shot down by women on three continents and he's more than a little sensitive about the nickname.

Which is why it only makes it worse when Lestrade finds out about the nickname, doesn't realize it's supposed to be ironic, and starts ribbing him about how Sherlock must be really throwing him off his game, John's so terrible at getting second dates, etc. Maybe one of his short-lasting girlfriends breaks up with him publicly at a crime scene in front of everyone?

Ultimately it's Sherlock, of all people, who notices and correctly deduces John's distress. I don't know, maybe he yells at Lestrade? Or does some private reassuring that John is, in fact, very much appreciated ;-)

Re-prompting rule change

[identity profile] 2014-11-23 04:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Hello, everyone, this post is to announce that we've changed one of the guidelines of the meme.

When we were going through more than a single prompting post a month, the "Don't reprompt until TWO parts after the last posting of the prompt." rule was necessary. Now that we're at a more sedate pace, we're changing the rule back to "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."

Thank you to the anon who proposed this change and clarified why it was necessary over on the Page-a-Mod post. We are always open to further suggestions.

Molly/Irene, past rape non-con, past underage

(Anonymous) 2014-11-24 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
Molly has a crush on Sherlock because he broke up the brothel where she'd been locked up since before she hit puberty. Eventually, she realizes that her interest in him isn't healthy either.

Enter Irene, with a rough past of her own, to help Molly explore and become confident in sex on her own terms.

Infidelity + blackmail. S/J + Irene (or Sally)

(Anonymous) 2014-11-24 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
John's in a relationship with Mary and he's seeing Sherlock on the side. Sherlock believes himself to be a master of disguise and convinces John to go to a club/restaurant/somewhere public on a date with him while in elaborate disguise so they can be as openly affectionate with each other as they please.

However, someone with a keen eye recognises them (Irene? Sally?) and this someone knows Mary, likes Mary quite a bit and is fairly disturbed that John would dare do something like this to Mary. Though, Irene (or Sally) says she could keep quiet if she's paid a certain substantial sum of money or requests favours or something else (Sherlock jumps at the opportunity to keep Irene (or Sally) quiet for John's sake, while John wallows in pity).

Irene or Sally eventually reveal to Mary John's unfaithfulness. Mary leaves John, and Sherlock/John get together. And I would love a bonus of Irene/Mary or Sally/Mary.

John Psychological/Emotional H/C

(Anonymous) 2014-11-24 07:23 am (UTC)(link)
Either Gen or Sherlock/John Slash is fine (Omegaverse with Alpha!Sherlock/Omega!John is never a bad thing).

No het. In the case of slash, no bottom!Sherlock.

John is abducted off the street one night, tortured psychologically for a period of time, and then dropped right back off where he'd been taken.

He appears to be fine physically, but the usually self-sufficient soldier he was is gone. Instead, he's very nervous and fearful around anyone who is not Sherlock. In fact, he seems to suffer from separation anxiety any time Sherlock leaves him alone.

Turns out while he was being tortured, he attempted to use Sherlock as a focal point to try and keep his sanity (if Sherlock finds me, I'll be safe. Get back to Sherlock and be safe. Sherlock = Safety).

I don't want the focus of the story to be the torture - in fact, I would prefer if it took up where he was returned and what happened to him only referenced as needed while Sherlock and co. help him heal.

Bonus points if Sherlock takes John with him to a crime scene (because John won't be left alone) and the sight of the blood/corpse causes a bit of a freak out (they knew it probably wasn't a good idea, but given he's a doctor and ex-soldier they're still unprepared for his reaction) and from then on, Lestrade becomes his 'minder' at any scene they visit, helping him to start trusting others besides Sherlock.

Couple things of importance:

No Moriarty or any other of Sherlock's enemies. Whoever took John did so either randomly or because John met a certain criteria they needed for their 'games.' I don't want this to turn into a 'John is hurt so Sherlock can suffer' scenerio. Of course, Sherlock should be upset and worried for his friend (or lover if you go slash) and undoubtedly he would begin to feel a bit hampered by having John so clingy which could result in some rash action and ensuing angst on both their parts, but the primary focus should be hurt!John with protective!Sherlock.

While I am usually fine with non-con/rape, I think it is sometimes overused in stories like this where a character is broken down. While I wouldn't be opposed to some minor molestation and threats of worse being used during the course of the torture, it should be used sparingly if at all. :) Sensory deprivation, water torture, etc. would be nice alternatives that aren't used often.

Sherlock is a hoarder

(Anonymous) 2014-11-25 06:37 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock is a hoarder. Mycroft sweeps through every once in a while and has his people throw out pretty much everything in the flat, which only makes Sherlock more desperate to hoard everything he can get immediately afterward. Maybe this has contributed to Sherlock getting kicked out of flats in the past, and/or is related to his drug use?

Anyway, John comes along, and all of a sudden 221B is under control. Not clean, never actually clean, but John refuses to let Sherlock accumulate intestines and toes and microscope slides and fungal cultures and it's at least livable. But then Sherlock fakes his death and John goes off and gets married and Sherlock's living on his own again in 221B after he gets back and everything goes to hell in a handbasket.

I'd love to just see someone's take on this - how it bears on Sherlock and Mycroft's relationship, how John reacts when he finds out how serious Sherlock's problem is, whether Sherlock gets a handle on his hoarding or not, etc.

Sherlock lies about being asexual (past abuse/noncon/coercion)

(Anonymous) 2014-11-25 11:26 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock tells people he's asexual because that's less embarrassing than the truth.

Sherlock has a lower libido plus he has had previously bad experiences with abusive partners which has made him cautious of intimacy and sex and relationships in general. But that was a long time ago and he thinks that still affected is embarrassing.

So when John and Sherlock inch towards a relationship, Sherlock lies about being asexual.

Sherlock wasn't actually raped

(Anonymous) 2014-11-26 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock gets kidnapped (temporarily). When he finally gets rescued, everyone assumes (because of circumstances or because of the kidnapper bragging) that he's been raped or otherwise sexually assaulted. Sherlock brushes the idea aside as absurd, which only makes everyone more concerned that he's trying to hide his emotions and lie to the world about it. Except Sherlock really wasn't raped - he was just locked somewhere he couldn't get out and that's really it.

I'd love to see well-meaning but overbearing Mycroft, Lestrade trying to be carefully sympathetic but get shot down, John thring to get Sherlock to open up more in private, etc. Maybe eventually Sherlock realizes that everyone keeps harping on it because they actually care about him?

Cigar Play

(Anonymous) 2014-11-27 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
Johnlock or Mormor cigar play? (

Light, Burn, Ash, Suck (1/?)

(Anonymous) 2014-12-20 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
One of my personal favorite kinds of play! Don't know why it never occurred to me to write...


It starts with a trip to a cigar bar. Sherlock isn’t even present, but John goes out with his friends to celebrate the new year and when he returns Sherlock smells smoke on him and has to focus very hard not to just put his hand on his cock right there. John’s never been good enough to observe Sherlock’s fetishistic interest in smoking; he thinks it’s just a naughty habit. He doesn’t know how Sherlock used to watch older men on their smoke breaks at far too young an age, fantasizing over the house help and imagining himself on his knees with a bit of rough in the form of a hasty blowjob and a man paid by his parents smoking lazily over his head. He doesn’t know that Sherlock started smoking in the first place mostly because he wanted to be around smokers, how the smell of smoke evokes an almost Pavlovian response in him. He doesn’t know that for Sherlock, as much as he enjoys watching a handsome man smoke a cigarette, cigars are the ultimate in perversion. The ritual of the experience, the opportunities for submission and service and degradation all in one shiny package—it’s something he discovered long before the Internet age, as his posh peers came of age and learned to smoke Cubans in the drawing room at dinner parties, but porntube has made his filthy desires distinctly more accessible in visual format.

Before streaming video, Sherlock didn’t know about the whole subculture around cigars within the wider gay male kinky community. He certainly fantasized about being on his knees, about lighting a man’s cigar for him, even about ash on his skin, but it was the Internet where he learned that there are so many more options for a cigar fetishist. He has a massive collection of downloaded video and links on his laptop, easily hidden from John behind a simple password layer, featuring everything from polite naked boys looking lovingly up at their smoking masters to a particular favorite of his where the boy is forced to suck ash off a leather Daddy's cock, then shoved to the floor with a boot on his neck, his tongue out and begging for more of the gritty residue. Sherlock doesn’t think he’d have the patience for elaborate and meticulous service, offering and cutting cigars for a party of men, but he certainly likes the idea of being humiliated and degraded during a smoking session, serving as a mere receptacle or an amusement for his partner as he wriggles from the pain of hot ash on his body. He’s never had the opportunity to play out his fantasies, but now that he and John have been in a relationship for approximately three weeks, and given his deductions around John’s willingness to indulge in kinky activities including but not limited to power exchange, he feels eager enough that when John comes back from the bar, smelling pleasantly of smoke, he burrows into the man’s neck and immediately hatches a plan.

John/Mycroft, Past Non-con

(Anonymous) 2014-11-27 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Many years ago, John, trying to bring up his courage, got completely pissed at a club and ends up taking home his first and last male partner - Mycroft. One thing leads to another and Mycroft, for whatever reason, decides not to go through with it. Unfortunately, John doesn't take "no" for an answer and ends up raping Mycroft.

Fast forward to years in the future - John doesn't remember anything that happened. So Mycroft decides to never say anything for fear of losing Sherlock his one and only friend.

And then it all comes to light.

Bonus: The whole "I'm not gay" thing is a weird subconscious hangover from the horrible thing John did.

Sherlock, John, Lestrade(?) Stuck in the Wilderness

(Anonymous) 2014-11-27 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
I was recently in the woods, and I found myself wondering what Sherlock would be like if he was stuck in the wilderness. So...Sherlock, John, and maybe Lestrade end up in a forest somewhere, without mobile phones or laptops.

You can have pretty much any scenario for how they ended up there: the apocalypse, they've been kidnapped and dropped off in the middle of nowhere, they get lost on a case, whatever. I also don't really care if they manage to get back to London. But I'd love to see how Sherlock reacts to something so different than his normal environment. John (and Lestrade) being BAMF at surviving would be fabulous, and so would Sherlock using his coat as a blanket.

Gen, slash, either way.

Sherlock has never heard of Arthur Conan Doyle

(Anonymous) 2014-11-28 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock and Mycroft's parents were never really big about allowing their boys to read fiction, so Sherlock honestly doesn't know he's named after the Arthur Conan Doyle detective. Until John brings home the book (collected works or whatnot) because "I thought it was funny, you know, since you're actually named Sherlock Holmes and I'm actually named John Watson, what're the chances?" and Sherlock is confused and John tells him about ACD and Sherlock's like "what, the guy who believed in fairies?" and Sherlock's mind is totally blown.

Sloppy Seconds

(Anonymous) 2014-11-28 09:10 am (UTC)(link)
Johnlock, established relationship.

Sherlock is an insatiable bottom. Whenever he gets bored and John won't entertain him, Sherlock goes out and picks up strangers (sometimes more than one) for sex (usually in public toilets or parks or the dark corners of dance clubs, etc).

Then he comes home at dawn, dripping with come. John calls him a filthy slut and makes him describe exactly what happened while he fucks his cum-sloppy hole.

(obviously this concept requires a lot of EXTREMELY unsafe sex that would be a very bad idea in the real world. but this is fiction, so...?)

I prompted this a good while ago, but it didn't get filled, so I thought I'd try again..

Sherlock is john's sub and did something great(he saved a life, comforted a child, was nice to Anderson,...). So John thinks he deserves to pick a reward and Sherlock picks a blowjob.

Basically, I just want John on his knees, but I want their dynamics (Sherlock as a sub and John as a dom) to still be clear. Bonus points for dirty talk and lots of 'you were such a good boy'.

I might try a mini-fill. I was wondering, since the prompt was vague(which was good!) were you looking specifically for some Sally/Sherlock or just the two of them together in the Quiet Room, not necessarily having sex?
This concept is beyond words. I really want to try a fill but I might mess it up. Worth a try?
