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.

Your mods for this meme are [ profile] ellie_hell, [ profile] charname, [ profile] anonspock and [ profile] anonbach. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to contact us via the Page-A-Mod post.

Molly works for Moriarty

(Anonymous) 2017-05-30 04:58 am (UTC)(link)
Molly knows exactly who Jim from IT is, because she works for Jim Moriarty and is very valuable to him.

Preferable pairing Jim/Sebastian.

Younger brother!Mycroft/Jim TW:: Drug use, dub con, underaged

Anything based off this

Tl;dr: Sherlocks little brother Mycroft is corrupted by Jim Moriarty.

Schizophrenic John Watson

(Anonymous) 2017-06-20 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
John Watson is schizpohrenic. We already know he hallucinated his dead wife and that it was implied that he had hallucinated Sherlock after his death. So maybe a fic about how John is schizophrenic and he tries to hide it from the people around him. How does it affect his life? Does he see scary hallucinations or does he just randomly see a 6 legged cat walk down the street. Can he tell what is a hallucination and what isn't? Does it effect case, and how do people find out, if they do?

Crown of Roses

(Anonymous) 2017-07-04 08:39 am (UTC)(link)
I have this idea for a fic, but I don't think I could do it justice, so I figured I'd see if other people wanted to take a crack at it.

There's this song, by a pretty obscure band, that reminded me of the various villains of the show. It's called Crown of Roses, by The Knitted Cap Club (it's a pretty obscure band; I only know about them because my high school choir director's the lead singer).
The chorus, especially, is what gave me the idea:
"Ambition was their greatest downfall, accompanied with lies. It brought about their destruction and pitiful demise. All for the want of power, the symbol of the crown. In greed and thirst for greatness, all the roses drowned."

For the most part, it fits Moriarty, but I can see it working for Irene Adler and Eurus as well, along with the rest of the villains in some ways.

Mycroft gets his umbrella repaired

(Anonymous) 2017-07-06 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
I saw this video about a shop in Paris that is the only place in Europe that still repairs umbrellas:

Clearly Mycroft is a patron. Did his umbrella get broken in a sexual act? While he was out doing tedious field work? Does he fly to Paris himself to get his umbrella repaired? I don't know, anon, please tell me! (I personally also like the idea of Lestrade finding out about the shop and getting some sort of special modification done for his lover's umbrella. Yay Mystrade!)

Lestrade, Sherlock- Panic, angst, h/c,

(Anonymous) 2017-07-08 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
Someone kidnaps and tortures Lestrade. When they find him, he's tied to a chair, slumped over, and unconscious. Sherlock doesn't like feeling panicked, but that's the only way to describe his emotions.

Lestrade, Mycroft, Sherlock- Initial Meetings, fluff, angst, abuse, h/c

(Anonymous) 2017-07-08 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
Those at the Yard love to speculate about how Lestrade first met the Holmes brothers. Some say the brothers are vampires and the Inspector is their servant. Others say the Holmes brothers are Lestrade's secret children.

The truth is much simpler. When Lestrade was a relatively new detective, he was called to investigate a case of child abuse. When Sherlock and Mycroft's biological father realized Sherlock had phoned the police, he hit Sherlock. Hard enough to bruise him. Without hesitation, Lestrade punched the man hard enough to dislocate his jaw, and ensured that the brothers were placed with a nice normal set of parents: the Holmes's. Ever since, both brothers have kept tabs on Lestrade.

Mycroft/Others Self-inflicted punishment

(Anonymous) 2017-07-11 07:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Mycroft slowly starts to hate himself and starts insulting himself when he is alone or just in his head. At some point the mental hurt isn't enough but he can't get himself beaten since it would be to obvious, so he seeks out strangers who would fuck him roughly...

Bonus and virtual cookies for:
+ He pays to be insulted
+ He tries to do extremer stuff every time
+ He hardly can cope with people being nice
+ Sherlock worrying about his big brother

Extra bonus round:
++ Someone finds out
++ Lots of aftercare

Lestrade/Moriarty, Sherlock- Deductions, angst, h/c, noncon

(Anonymous) 2017-07-19 01:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Moriarty kidnaps and rapes Lestrade, then lets him go, knowing that Lestrade won't report it but that Sherlock will deduce it anyway.

Re: Lestrade/Moriarty, Sherlock- Deductions, angst, h/c, noncon

(Anonymous) 2017-08-02 08:42 am (UTC)(link)
Would read the heck out of this. Seconded!

Molly/Sherlock- Not a Lie

(Anonymous) 2017-07-23 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock, wanting to minimize the pain he caused Molly in the Final Problem, decides to pretend what he said on the phone was genuine, despite the circumstances, and to ask her out. It's only when they're actually on a date that Sherlock realizes he really wasn't lying.

John, Sherlock, Victor- Grieving Process, angst, h/c

(Anonymous) 2017-07-23 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
With his memories triggered, Sherlock is starting to remember every moment of his friendship with Victor Trevor. And he starts going through the grieving process all over again. John isn't quite sure how to deal with this; he's not used to Sherlock mourning like everyone else. But he does his best to help Sherlock.

Mycroft, Sherlock- Overprotective, h/c, fluff

(Anonymous) 2017-07-24 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Everyone knows that Mycroft is a bit, just a bit, overprotective of his baby brother. What surprises everyone, Sherlock included, is that Sherlock can be just as overprotective of Mycroft. Or the one where Sherlock invites himself to stay with Mycroft post S4 finale while Baker Street is being repaired.

This is so cute. I would love to read that.

Mycroft Holmes decides to help Americans out with the orange menace. Take that as you like it.

Sherlock demands Lestrade's presence when he's withdrawing

(Anonymous) 2017-08-01 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
After The Abominable Bride, John takes Sherlock home as promised and tries to help him through withdrawal. Sherlock is having none of it. Eventually he yells at John that he's "doing it wrong", then steals John's phone and calls Lestrade.

Greg comes over with supplies and all the patience in the world, and helps get Sherlock clean. Again. Apparently, over the years, the two of them have developed several rituals to get through the challenges of withdrawal, rituals John had no idea about, and that was what Sherlock was referring to when he said John was "doing it wrong".

Would love some conversation between Paternal!Greg and John about how many times Greg has had to do this before. Bonus if Greg knows about Sherlock writing a list each time he takes drugs.

Eurus, Mycroft, Rudi, Sherlock-Being the Big Brother

(Anonymous) 2017-08-04 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
Even after he realized what Eurus did to Redbeard, Mycroft didn't immediately say anything to Uncle Rudi. After all, Eurus was his sister and he had to protect her.

But it's three o'clock in the morning. His parents were out. The cellar door was locked. And Mycroft could hear Sherlock screaming and Eurus laughing down in the cellar.
(Or, Mycroft had to choose between his sister's freedom and his brother's life).

one-sided Sherlock/Mycroft?

(Anonymous) 2017-08-04 11:05 am (UTC)(link)
Last night, while out with some friends, I heard this conversation:

A: Why do you hate your brother so much?
B(drunk as hell and crying):'cuz he doesn't love me.
A:you're crazy, he loves you very much, I'd love to trade my big bro with you.
B(suddenly standing and shouting very loudly):He loves me like a brother, I want more! I want him as my lover!

Cue awkward silence all around, and I was just sitting there and asking myself: Is this why Sherlock hates Mycroft?

Please Anons, give me drunk Sherlock confessing to John or Lestrade, I want their reactions, the backstory, whether they help him get Mycroft or try to get him get over this obsession!!!

tell my story/ blind date

(Anonymous) 2017-08-20 12:05 am (UTC)(link)
On YouTube there's a series from SoulPancake called “tell my story” where two people have a blind date and have to make assumptions about each other using a fill in the blank format.

here's a link if you don't get it

basically, sherlock does this with john and gets most of the answers right with a ton of detail? it'd probably be humor/fluff but feel free to do what you want

John gets seriously ill

(Anonymous) 2017-08-28 05:37 pm (UTC)(link)
It's always a shock when a doctor is sick, especially if it's life-threatening. Let's have John face his mortality once more, something big like cancer or heart disease. It'd also be interesting to see how the people in his life (read: Sherlock) react to John's illness.

Mycroft with the flu.TW: medfet,dub-con examinations,doctoring the wrongest wayest possible

(Anonymous) 2017-09-22 07:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Mycroft is sick with flu. Sherlock and john come to take care of him. John has to take his rectal temp, perform a rectal exam, spanking for whining, enemas,all the good stuff and my bulletproof wtf!this-is-a-kink?:cuddling and crying. Just Mycroft being sick and miserable and being comforted and examined. Keeping it in-character with no crack seems impossible but I'd like that.

Sherlock and RuPaul's Drag Race

(Anonymous) 2017-09-30 06:19 pm (UTC)(link)
It is an understanding that I am addicted to RuPaul's Drag Race, and it would definitely be amazing to read a fanfic about Sherlock (and/or John) being a drag queen; whether it is for a case, for a living, anything really! It would be even more special if they were somehow (whether as the pit crew, the contests, the judges or the staff, who knows) on the reality show, but that's up to you dear writer!

(Anonymous) 2017-10-15 06:37 am (UTC)(link)
What about John cuddling with various other members of the Sherlock cast. Like John curling up under Sherlock, or taking a nap with his head on Mrs. Hudson's lap when they're watching telly. Maybe some Mycroft and Lestrade or some members of the yard, and everyone being accepting because. He's been through so.much.

(Anonymous) 2017-10-18 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
People think John is abusing Sherlock because Sherlock keeps showing up with bruises and Sherlock keeps saying it's fun and that John didn't mean it and John keeps acting guilty and putting distance between himself and Sherlock. Turns out Sherlock keeps being an idiot and trying to wake John from his nightmares,"it's for science John. If I can get you back to sleep without you waking up you'll be have a more productive day" and John has PTSD so he always comes out of a nightmare attacking not realising it's sherlock till he wakes up first. "Sherlock stop trying to wake me up. I locked the door how did you even get in?"

(Anonymous) 2017-10-18 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
This is a re post prompt but:
Prompt: John is a genius but is only a genius in things he is interested in. The same way Sherlock is only interested in certain things and 'erases' everything else until someone makes fun of his deficiencies is what John does too.

Lets see John exercising some of that genius.

+It comes in a totally non-critical time . Like he starts rattling off facts that those near him don't know and Sherlock has to check to make sure.

++Happens more and more the longer he is with Sherlock but though he likes knowing things, unlike Sherlock, he doesn't boast about them.

+++Harry is also a genius
gen or not is fine
