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.

Image prompt - Mycroft-centric fics based on Mark Gatiss' Twitter

As the title says. I want some Mycroft-centric fics, drabbles, etc. based on Mark Gatiss' Twitter posts (I picked some of the best):

Bonus points for one of these IN CHARACTER:

Super bonus points if Mycroft says "I am Mycroft Holmes and I will kill again".

John/Sherlock. An unusual emotional reaction.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-21 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Remember that Best Friend shock? That's nothing! When a couple of years later John tells Sherlock that he loves him and proposes him, Sherlock (who has always been in love with John, secretly pining over him) is so dumbfounded, he falls into a coma for a few weeks or even months and maybe needs quite some time to come back to normal afterwards.

Vamplock., anyone? Johnlock

(Anonymous) 2015-01-22 06:29 am (UTC)(link)
I've never prompted before but I don't know where else to go so I hope I'm doing this right. ^^;

Vampires are known and have a hierarchy.

I've had this story idea that Sherlock is a ruthless vampire detective used to being treated like royalty by all he meets, but when it comes to John, his personality does a complete 180. John comes into the story when he walks into a crime scene and interrupts Sherlock's stream of deduction. (Could be that Sherlock sent him to fetch something before going to the crime scene or he texted John to meet him there.)

Lestrade is jealous(romantically) because he knew Sherlock for years and yet "this new bloke gets special treatment", and tries to throw subtle hints at Sherlock that he wants to be bitten. How does Sherlock react? Does he even notice? What does John do? Skies the limit. lol. Maybe potential PDA between Sherlock and John?

I'd like for there to already be a soulmate bond between Sherlock and John and Lestrade just doesn't know it.

Sherlock wants a bigger lab

(Anonymous) 2015-01-22 02:25 pm (UTC)(link)
John has finally put his foot down and demanded Sherlock stop doing disgusting experiments in the kitchen. Since moving away from 221B is totally unthinkable and there's nowhere else to keep his science supplies, Sherlock concludes his only possible course of action is to finally seduce John Watson. Then they can both just share John's room and Sherlock can use his current room for experiments and as a bonus, Sherlock will finally get to have sex with John like he's been dreaming about for so long.

It's all John's fault for being so unreasonable about what belongs in a kitchen, anyway.

Fortysomething crossover

(Anonymous) 2015-01-22 09:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd really like to see and Sherlock/Fortysomething crossover of any description, length etc. With Sherlock as Rory's twin/brother of older version, and John or Scotland yard finding out.

For any who don't know, Fortysomething is a 2003 British tv show with Benedict Cumberbatch, Hugh Laurie and Peter Capaldi, which basically make it really awesome and extremely underrated.

I also wouldn't mind if you wanted to add House MD to the crossover, that'd also be great.

It's really up to you, but any work would be amazing g as I have a huge thing for these works, of which there are so few!

Vigilante superheroes - "The Hedgehog" and "The Otter"

(Anonymous) 2015-01-23 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
When John gets invalided back to London, he starts going out at night and fighting crime as the vigilante superhero called "The Hedgehog." One night he runs into another superhero, "The Otter". Could see this as a casefic, slash, total crack, or any combination thereof :-P

Minifill: Constant Vigilance 1/?

(Anonymous) 2015-01-23 09:15 am (UTC)(link)
Written way too late on a whim. Crackfic.
Apologies for Doctor Who crossover if you don't like it. Apologies for the length.

With a whoosh of air beneath his dramatic cape, the small dark figure skittered to a halt upon the rooftop. With a quick adjustment to his mask, the vigilante superhero surveyed the entwined alleys of London.
His leg was barely bothering him at all these days, he noted with satisfaction. The Hedgehog would soon be as fit as before the war.

"I am the night!" he hollered, and proceeded to save one damsel in distress, two lost children, some homeless guy who offered him weed, and ran into his friend Mike Stamford(under cover, obviously) who mentioned something about a blue police box appearing in the park.
All in all, a pretty good night.

The masked hero turned to leave before his super hearing noted a quiet step behind him.
With a whirl, he spun around to face this person, who soon turned out to be, confusingly enough, a tall man dressed in black and wearing a mask and cape a bit like John's own.
"The Hedgehog." The man rumbled in a baritone deeper than the frozen Atlantic.
The Hedgehog gasped in shock. How could this man know who he was? Was he... A villain?
The man turned with an impressive whirl of his cape(The Hedgehog was secretly jealous) and jumped off the roof.
The Hedgehog blinked, before running to look over the edge. The man had fallen flat on his face.
"M'ok," Came the muffled shout, "Just needed to show my archenemy I did as he asked. Incidentally, there's a sniper on the other edge of the roof, who was waiting to shoot you if I didn't do this."
"How could you know that?"
"I'm a consulting hero. People come to me when the police are out of their league. And my super vision determines you are safe now." The man bounced up.
"Wait!" The Hedgehog called. He stumbled his way down the stairs to catch up to the man.
"How did you survive that? Who are you? How do you know me? Why can't I save you from falling from the roof?"
The man snorted.
"Trade secret. You don't seem entirely slow so I'll just give you a hint. Bouncy balls. The name's The Otter, and the place is 221b Baker Street." He nodded to another building, one he could see with his super vision but the Hedgehog could not.
"To answer your other questions, I make it my business to know people, and I talked to Mike Stamford."
"Prick." The Hedgehog mumbled, "Blowing my cover."
"And I jumped too quickly for you to act without activating your flight powers and getting us both shot." The Otter added. "There was simply no time."

Mycroft and Sherlock were almost in the same House. (HP Crossover)

(Anonymous) 2015-01-23 08:38 am (UTC)(link)
Mycroft got sorted into Slytherin and secretly hoped his brother would do the family proud when he came to Hogwarts. Sherlock begged the Sorting Hat to put him in Ravenclaw instead. Or swap the houses around.
Go anywhere with this.
+For cameos by the other characters, Gryffindor John, anything.

OP trying to be a bit clearer here, when I said swap, I meant you could make it that Mycroft was the one in Ravenclaw and Sherlock chose Slytherin. If you want. Or you can read it the other way and have Sherlock tell the Sorting Hat to resort Mycroft AND himself. XD

Sebastian Moran is bloody brilliant a parkour

And it's HOT. Yep. That's it.

John/Sebastien- possible wing fic (dub/noncon touching), aggressive courting, illegal slaver in +

(Anonymous) 2015-01-23 12:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Sebastien Moran and John Watson are promised to each other. Moran knows, John doesn't-at least not at first. Sebastien pushes quiet hard for John to accept him as his mate, pursues/courts him, and uses every advantage he has to either win him over or get him to submit and bond. In return John puts up a HUGE challenge and acts as dominant/alpha as possible to combat this and it becomes a cross between a competition and courtship for mating rights.

The only thing I ask is for Sebastien to actively encourage John to become a doctor/soldier (if it's when their young adults like in Uni) or to actively encourage him to follow his goals/morals/etc. He may act traditional but when John starts to allow himself to be won over Moran surprises him in how utterly non-traditional he can be; he doesn't expect John to turn into his own personal slave.

I would love it if they also had wings. Please and thanks. <3 If you manage to swing this into a not-a-dark fic you will have my eternal gratitude.

Bonus one: Omega/submissive selling is highly illegal but John's father did it anyway. John runsaway to London to escape this (and possible enters the army and school as protection). Meanwhile, Sebastien is trying to track down the omega that was sold "to him" via his own meddling parent (+5 if said meddling parent was his omega mother who has skewed morals just like him).

Bonus two: When John meets Sherlock he and Moran are on a break/they need space. Sherlock, for all he claims his biology doesn't matter to him, is actually pretty traditionalist. Sebastien unlike Sherlock knows he has nothing to worry about because he *knows* John wouldn't stand for it. They make a game of seeing if someone will guess their together.

Bonus three: John on the other hand is very angry that Sebastien seems to be involving himself in criminal activity AGAIN.

Bonus four: Sherlock isn't traditionalist because he thinks omega's are inherently inferior but because he was raised to be 'chivalrous' with his own omega. Please no Sherlolly or Sherlock/Irene if you decide to pair Sherlock up with someone that isn't John.

Bonus five: Omegas/submissives have equal rights by this and the story doesn't concentrate on John fighting to get them. Though they don't have to be viewed as equal to Alphas/doms always I'd rather John not be completely hindered in his goals of pursuing a career.

Six : Could I get a scene where Moran tries the 'overwhelm him with dominance/scenting and conquer' tactic (that is viewed as more than a bit not good), maybe tries literally sweeping him off his feet and in to the air, when he first meets John? John is able to think on his feet and instead of just escaping knocks him down a peg or two.

Sherlock's parents didn't know his death was fake. They "adopt" John when Sherlock returns.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-23 04:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Unlike in canon, Sherlock's parents aren't informed that he's faking his death and believe he really died. When he comes back they commiserate with John for being angry and upset. They start doting on him and he basically becomes their new son after they become estranged from Sherlock and Mycroft for lying to them.

Sherlock and Mycroft try to act like they don't care, but then slowly start trying to win over their parents by pretending to like Les Mis and line dancing and such. But every time they try to insert themselves into their parents activities John's already there. Angsty or humorous or both.

(Dark!)John/Autistic!Sherlock, John didn't mean to send him into sensory overload, Dub/NonCon

What it says on the tin. (Dark!)John wants to get off with Sherlock, by whatever means (no scat or watersports), but he doesn't mean to actually hurt him.
Sherlock is not opposed to trying things with John, but the sudden onslaught and everything being out of his control is definitely not the way to go about it. The excessive touching and things going on send him into sensory overload.
It can take some time, but eventually John somehow figures Sherlock is not just reacting in a "help I'm being raped"-kinda way. After which he feels guilty.

If you rather write a non-dark John who simply wants to surprise his already boyfriend cos he's tired of waiting for Sherlock to make a move that's completely fine by me.

Captcha!Croft says "i saw that". I have no idea what you're talking about. :whistles innocently:

Sherlock gets kidnapped while on a case

(Anonymous) 2015-01-24 06:00 pm (UTC)(link)
As well as just tying him up, the kidnapper winds barbed wire around Sherlock's arms and legs to keep him bound. It's steadily shredding his skin little by little. It's not tight enough to sever arteries or anything, but every time Sherlock squirms it hurts like hell and well, it's hard not to squirm when you have barbed wire tied around you.

Sherlock gets rescued but not before he has a fairly decent set of injuries. (Perhaps he's even going to have some more scars after this).

John is of course there when Sherlock is rescued, and turns murderous when he sees what they have done to him (having to be restrained from killing the kidnapper on the spot), but having to calm down enough to tend to Sherlock's wounds.

(Bonus points if Sherlock can deduce what his kidnapper has in mind before he even sees the barbed wire and tries to talk him out of it, trying to hide his panic)

Apparently, I am evil.

Mind control non-con/dub-con

(Anonymous) 2015-01-24 08:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Jim kidnaps John and Sherlock, and, using whatever method you want (doesn't have to be realistic, but preferably no magic powers or anything else too out there), slowly makes Sherlock into his slave. John is forced to watch as his friend becomes more and more obedient and slowly loses his intelligence, which Sherlock had always thought was his most important quality. But as the brainwashing process goes on, John becomes less and less horrified and more and more interested. He starts seeing it as hot rather than disturbing, and starts to almost wish it was happening to him too, not realising that he's only thinking that because it already is.

Lots of focus on the induction and Sherlock's reactions as he starts to give in please! If you want to switch it around and make Sherlock watch John, that's okay too, but I would prefer it this way.

Preferably no RTYI's please.

tl;dr: Moriarty hypnotises Sherlock while John watches and is slowly brainwashed himself.

Competitive Tea Shop AU?

(Anonymous) 2015-01-24 09:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I've got a mug that says "Moriar tea: that's what people brew" on it and I was hit with a sudden need for another teashop!AU where Sherlock and Moriarty both own tea shops, preferably near each other. They're super competitive, always trying to out-do each other in customers and teas. I think you could also go either way, as having Moriarty to be totally evil (and trying to completely sabotage Sherlock's business) or having a more friendly, professional competition between them.

Bonus points if you include other characters as employees/ customers.

Moriarty/John-Soulmate AU

[identity profile] 2015-01-25 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Like, written somewhere on the body is the first word or phrase that someones soulmate will say to them. (Directly to them, and meaning to address them.) So, some people get something random like "jump", and some something that is instantly recognizable in the moment like "my pet snake's name is Frank." But then there are others who will get something like "hello" or "sorry" and are almost completely dependent on their partner to recognize them.

James Moriarty is one of those people, and he greatly resents his possible second half for being so incredibly dull. John, however, has something completely outrageous and murdery on his back, (which has definitely ruined the mood at times,) and the second he realizes that the psychopath in front of him is supposed to be "the one," he decides to keep that knowledge to himself.

The question is, will he succeed? I'm willing to go either way.

Concert - Sherlock and Co.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-25 12:27 pm (UTC)(link)
"A Queen song comes on and they continue; Sherlock humming, John tapping the beat, and Greg singing along. All three men have the strong urge to confess they went to the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 1992, but none of them actually say it. Due to their shyness, they will never know that all three of them were there in the audience that night. "
-The Road trip series

I found this little sentence enticing. Could someone give me a concert fic where Sherlock, John, Greg ...whoever you want else...are all at the same concert when their younger (DOES NOT have to be this one)? Possibly having the time of their lives, possibly getting incredibly high, possibly having major angst...whatever! :D If you need to play around with their ages a bit that is ok.

+ John is either having a bit of a "going-off" /farewell tour. Of what? Make of it what you will.
++ Anderson is there with Donovan . She comforts him (not sex!) during a truly terrible time.
+++Sherlock is off doing drugs somewhere. He bumps into John. Mycroft is there too , hunting Sherlock down. He somehow gets drunk.
++++They ALL bump into each other at one point.
+++++Only one person remembers their very first meeting and brings it up. It's Molly.

Mary , John, and Sherlock AU where their all fine together. John and Mary are getting married or are married already.

Sherlock HATES kissing and finds sexual intimacy disgusting andor unnecessary but for John he is willing to do anything (to keep him) since he knows John has a super high sex drive. Mary figures it out first and tries letting Sherlock see if he likes anything involving the more intimate parts of a romantic relationship. Turns out he likes a few things such as kissing! At least when it comes to Mary and John.

Okay he lied. He is addicted to kissing. VERY addicted.

Can I have Sherlock just constantly "stealing" kisses and intimate handbrushes (like across butts and groins) even if he doesn't want more than that?

It's all going super cute , Sherlock is finally opening up a bit more and exploring his sexuality/sex drive (which he usually has zero of), and that leaves him a bit vulnerable. Than the three go out to dinner /a party at the yard/ festivities , their still hyped over something or other (a case?) and possibly a more than a bit drunk. Mary +Sherlock manage to do the equivalent (possibly literally) of kissing over the dinner table.


-Mary feels guilty because she kept on topping up Sherlock's glass as a bit of fun.

-It happens when John isn't there. So, he comes back to the table it's super weird.

-Sherlock gets most of the hate. A bit by design.

-Sherlock closes up like a clam after this.

Rebel Mycroft- possible AU swap/portal/magic

(Anonymous) 2015-01-25 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Part you don't have to add:Mycroft from another dimension is transported to canon London.

Prompt: Mycroft is scarred, starving overly lean, and looks like some type of freedom fighter. The country he lives in (or most of the world) is in some kind of dystopian hell-hole. Think post-dystopia and nearly a complete collapse or about to be a complete collapse of civility and the government. Constant fighting everywhere.

If he DOES end up in canon:
Since he isn't in politics and is often doing leg work he is more emotionally driven than canon Mycroft. So, he gets angered easier, shows love a bit more freely, and yet still can keep a cool aloofness if the situation calls for it.

He tries eat EVERYTHING. And gets super sick.

He is still his super smart self so he is able to figure out how to blend in pretty well. Unfortunately, he is also PTSD-ridden so he makes mistakes.

He is younger than canon Mycroft. Sherlock gets a bit nostalgic if they do meet.

The clothes they wear in his country are very different.

He is missing a leg due to protecting Sherlock.

He ends up falling madly in love with Lestrade quiet easily. The Lestrade back in his world is...different.

Poisoned Smog [Part 1 - Difference]

[identity profile] 2015-01-26 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
He was starving and confused... Mainly confused, but pretty hungry, too. It had all... changed. What on earth was going on?

He just had to retrace his steps. He was with Sherlock, running from that fucking Lestrade, and then... He was here. A step was missing from his memory.

How was this possible? Where was Sherlock? Where was John? Where was Molly? Where was Anthea? He was alone.

It was different here. The air was cleaner, the colours brighter, the scents sweeter - and they were so sweet, there was a bakery around here somewhere. He'd only ever seen one once.

What was he doing? He had to get back - Sherlock and the others needed him. But - but... food...

Where is your sense of duty, man?!

Right. The others. Get back to Baker Street, they'll be there.

"John, it's not my fault!" Sherlock?

"It is! You gave Anderson a black eye!" John?

"He disserved it!" That's definitely Sherlock...

"Sherlock! John!" He called, running towards the voices.

"Was that your brother?" John? What was he saying? They were together not five minutes ago.

"I'm not sure..." Sherlock? What the hell was he talking about?

He leapt over the fence easily and stumbled towards them. Stupid leg.

"Mycroft?!" Sherlock exclaimed. They were gaping at him and, hell, he stared back. Sherlock's hair was long and he was wearing expensive clothes and John was in a jumper! John Watson... in a jumper. It didn't compute.

He tugged at his tattered bandana around his neck - the white and black checked one - and pulled down the sleeves of his brown long-sleeved t-shirt. His jeans were torn and caked in mud, along with his top, and his black combat boots had seen better days - but he always looked like that. He shrugged his stained, grey rucksack higher on his shoulder - he needed to keep it with him, it had his gas mask and meagre ration of water in.

"What?" He questioned, scowling, "I hope you two bastards can explain because, motherfucking Christ, I'm so confused. I leave you for two sodding minutes and -!" He gestured futilely around the street, "And why aren't you John, you son of a bitch, with Anthea and Molly?! I gave you clear fucking instructions! Go back to 221 Baker street and look after them! Are you that much of a bloody twat!?" They both stared at him like he'd grown an extra head, "And you, Sherlock; I look away for one fucking second and you just disappear! Remember what happened last time? Now, you little shit of a brother, you're going to help me get back because - for once - I have no idea where the fuck I am. Savour that! Now, which way?"

"To where?" Sherlock asked cautiously. John just stared, looking shell-shocked -

Stop using that sodding word.

"Baker street, of course!" Mycroft snapped.

"John, forget Lestrade; we have a new case."

"What?! Lestrade?! What the hell were you doing around that backstabbing bastard!?!" he demanded, moving into Sherlock's personal space and glaring daggers at him.

"A very interesting case..."


First one done! How was it? Reviews appreciated.

Character A and B are close. A is not entirely human or if they are they aren't a normal one*. This is eventually reviled to B , somehow. B holds a prejudice to A's kind and doesn't react well. It doesn't end cheerily. Or if it does ("Your my friend, of course I accept you.") than now that B knows A refuses to allow bigotry. Not that s/he did before but they were at least more careful about it.

* This can mean anything: Omegaverse, wingfic, mermaids, magic...
