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.

John/Mary, John/Sherlock. Infidelity. MPREG.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-09 07:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Things happen the other way around: during her and John's wedding Mary realises that Sherlock is pregnant. She also realises that the baby is probably John's (which it is, indeed). Maybe it was drunk sex that got Sherlock pregnant. But neither John, nor Sherlock himself knows about the pregnancy yet.

Lestrade names his cat "Sherlock"

(Anonymous) 2015-08-10 03:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Lestrade adopts a cat, which he names "Sherlock" because it glares at him the same way Sherlock does sometimes. Maybe it's a bit of getting his own back, getting to laugh whenever "Sherlock" falls off the back of the couch or whatnot.

John overhears Lestrade telling someone else (Mycroft? Donovan? Molly?) about some of Sherlock's antics. Except John doesn't know about the cat, and he gets totally the wrong idea from Lestrade talking about Sherlock curling up in his lap and or biting at his ear.

I just want delightful crack and awkwardness all around :-)

Sherlock & Mary - abusive friendship prompt

(Anonymous) 2015-08-10 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
After the whole Magnussen issue, Sherlock seems fine with Mary having shot him.

In fact, she can do anything to him, so long as she doesn't hurt John or the baby. That's how Sherlock rationalizes it when Mary often asks to meet up with him, needing to 'talk' about her dark past because John wants to pretend it never happened. Sherlock will let Mary use him as a punching bag when she's upset because he thinks that is what makes a good friend. Mary often feels bad after and apologizes but she keeps doing it, begging Sherlock not to tell John. Sherlock is messed up enough that he think he deserves it anyway.

I don't really want Mary as full-out evil, she's just unstable and dangerous, and think so long as Sherlock says he's okay then this is fine. And Sherlock does love Mary like a friend, thinking she is the best for John (who he might have romantic feelings for but he won't say), which is what makes it more sad.

Irene Addler - too kinky to torture

(Anonymous) 2015-08-11 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Moriarity captures Irene and orders her tortured. But when they have her chained up, whipped, shocked, stuck with pins, etc. - She gets off on it.

This leads to a very irritated Jim and a very horny Irene who is begging him for more.

Sherlock has to do laundry

(Anonymous) 2015-08-11 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock has to go undercover at a laundromat for a case - but he truly, honestly can't seem to figure out how a washer and dryer work and how the whole "laundry" thing goes because he's always had someone to do it for him.

Cue an embarrassed phone call to John who is laughing himself silly as he talks Sherlock through it.

Alternate meeting: One pretends to be the other's date.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-13 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
You know those OTP prompts that are like "Person A is stood up at a restaurant so Person B pretends to be their date so they aren't embarrassed"?
That's how John met Sherlock at Angelo's.

Bonus: Sherlock is Person A, but he's really on a case(ASiP if you want to parallel) and only *looks* like he's been stood up. Extra bonus points if John gets dragged along on the case with little idea of what's going on.

Moran is a posh, rich, white boy

Sherlock does require sleep... he just sleepwalks a lot. Mental Health Issues.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-16 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
You know all these absolutely mind-blowing famous stories about some sleepwalkers?

Sherlock is a sleepwalker and spends a good part of his life sleepwalking and doing various things while he's asleep. This is a result of his sleep deprivation and probably past drug use, too. His mind is still at least partially working when it happens. He can unknowingly solve cases and do other stuff, but things can look quite odd to anyone who witnesses him like that.

There can be more to it. For example, John is just a reoccurring part of his dreams and is not real. Sherlock refuses to believe it once he learns about it and is absolutely devastated and has a breakdown. John can be real though, as someone Sherlock has seen in real life; for example, John can be an A&E doctor, whom Sherlock has only seen once when he was injured/overdosed. Mycroft can involve John into Sherlock's healing process, once Sherlock's illness becomes known.

Past Greg/Mycroft. Painful truth is revealed after many years..

(Anonymous) 2015-08-16 02:01 am (UTC)(link)
John (and possibly Sherlock, too, who has failed to deduce it before ('There's always something!')) learns that Greg and Mycroft used to be lovers many years ago. They used to be in love with each other, but it ended very badly, with a major heartbreak and with Greg later marrying a woman.

Maybe Greg and Mycroft hadn't seen each other for a long time afterwards, until Sherlock was arrested for drugs by Greg, who probably failed to recognise the dirty junkie as Mycroft's younger brother.

Somehow John and Sherlock find out. Maybe tipsy Greg becomes talkative in a pub with John. And maybe the past still hurts.

Greg&Mycroft. Underage Prostitution, Angst.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-16 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
Young policeman Greg Lestrade arrests an underage teen for prostitution (Mycroft is about 15) and learns that Mycroft is from a very rich family, but something bad has happened, his parents died and someone (an evil family member perhaps) took possession of everything that the Holmes' family owned. Failing to find any help, Mycroft and his little brother (Sherlock can be 4-5 y.o.) ended up in the streets. And, eventually, Mycroft ended up selling his body, too young and not qualified for any real job, despite his cleverness. It is the only way for him to feed himself and his little brother, who's all alone in their tiny flat/bedsit while Mycroft is under arrest.

Greg ends up helping them somehow. I prefer platonic mystrade in this, since I don't suppose Mycroft is interested in sexual stuff, especially after being used and abused by his clients. But it's up to you.

Re: Greg&Mycroft. Underage Prostitution, Angst.

John&Sherlock. John's revenge for all of Sherlock's experiments. Wetting... and more. ;)

(Anonymous) 2015-08-16 02:36 am (UTC)(link)
Tired of being subjected to Sherlock's experiments without his own consent, John decides to teach Sherlock a good lesson he won't forget any time soon. Sherlock is too distracted by a case to notice that his drink is spiked with a strong diuretic and laxative. He ends up pissing and soiling himself at a very inappropriate moment and place. Maybe nobody notices and Sherlock leaves the place before anyone realises, but John, of course, knows what has happened. He helps Sherlock to get home and probably also helps him to take care of the disaster.

The lesson is learned though, and Sherlock never uses John as his test subject again without John's explicit consent.

Sherlock likes framing Anderson for unsolved murders

(Anonymous) 2015-08-20 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock keeps a blog/diary too - proving that Anderson is responsible for pretty much every major unsolved case ever. Whenever Sherlock gets annoyed at Anderson he comes home and writes a rant PROVING Anderson killed Archduke Ferdinand or JFK or whatever. And because Sherlock is brilliant, he's come up with some pretty convincing arguments framing Anderson (if you ignore the minor fact that Anderson wasn't actually alive for most of them).

Maybe he's annoyed that his blog doesn't get as much traffic as John's does? Or maybe Lestrade and the other Yarders find out about it?

Fill: An Unexpected Consequence

(Anonymous) 2015-08-24 04:12 pm (UTC)(link)
DI Lestrade scowled at the boxes that had made their way onto his desk. Of course it had to be his job to sort through the stuff that had been seized after Sherlock's suicide and reevaluate it in light of him probably not being a fake. Lestrade collapsed in his chair with a groan. This was going to take a while.

He opened a box at random and picked up the first thing he saw: a small leather notebook. Lestrade snorted slightly at the sheer poshness of it, and then he opened it. His eyes widened and he opened up his phone.

It picked up on the second ring. "What is it, Lestrade?" the voice on the other end said with a yawn.

"Anderson, we have a problem," Lestrade said. "Can you come over to the Yard?"

"Look, the Empty Hearse meets in half an hour..."

"This is serious. It has to do with Holmes." Lestrade could hear a soft gasp on the other end.

"Are they reopening the case?" Anderson ejeculated. Lestrade hesitated.

"It's... complicated," he said. "I'll explain it to you once you get here."

"I'll be right over,"said Anderson before hanging up.

True to his word, Anderson was in Lestrade's office in 15 minutes. He had obviously ran the entire way, and he was panting from the exertion.

"What... is it... Lestrade?" Anderson said, leaning against the wall for support. Lestrade wirelessly handed over the notebook. Anderson opened it, and his eyebrows furrowed as he read the first page.

"We almost have Sherlock cleared," Lestrade said. "I was supposed to reevaluate all this stuff we seized. So... we obviously have a problem."

"Yeah," said Anderson, turning the page. "I had no idea that I was the one to start World War I."

"What?" Lestrade yelled, snatching the notebook back.

"It says right there," Anderson said. "I didn't think it could be possible, but if Sherlock Holmes says so..." Lestrade burst out laughing.

"Look at this, Anderson," he said. "You killed Hitler!" Anderson glared at him.

"This isn't funny!" he said. "I could go to jail for this!"

"Yeah, for killing Hitler!"

John/Sherlock. Wedding. Angst.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-22 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
John and Sherlock are getting married. It was supposed to be Sherlock's happy day, but he's extremely nervous. Little things go wrong (a stain on his shirt, a traffic jam on his way to the wedding as he and John go there separately, and so on). He's very nervous and angsty and worked up. Maybe there's something that makes him (erroneously) deduce that there's a chance John might decide to call the whole thing off in the last moment. And maybe that fact makes Sherlock contemplate running away and never see John and their acquaintances/guests again. It's not like he's made for any of it, right? Maybe there's even some crying on his part.

He just wants the day to end as soon as possible, even if it's going to be a complete fiasco.

Good ending is preferable though.

I'd love it not to be an omegaverse, but if it is, I don't mind at all, as long as it's Omega!Sherlock/Alpha!John.

Sherlock bonds with a child

(Anonymous) 2015-08-24 06:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Has anyone seen that episode of Criminal Minds where Reid bonds with an autistic child by playing the piano with him? I'd like to see Sherlock in a similar situation - for some reason he has to talk with an autistic child (non-verbal is preferred, though verbal is also fine) and ends up bonding with them somehow, maybe through the violin.
Bonus points if Sherlock is also on the spectrum somewhere and so sort of has an idea about what the child is going through.

Kidnapped Johniarty

(Anonymous) 2015-08-27 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
When young John disappears, London burns. Jim knows the Holmes brothers are behind it, but cannot figure out how. John is worried that Jim will think he ran away. Sherlock tells him that Jim does not want him any more, that he got bored of him. John is sad, and scared if the way Sherlock looks at him. When Jim rescues him, he is so scared he will be mad for disappearing. Jim takes John, destroys the Holmes, and proves to his sweet boy he is far from mad.

Any warnings is fine, prefer John no older than 16

Kid John

(Anonymous) 2015-08-27 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
John likes it when his brother Jim lets him tag along with his friends, even though he is much smaller. Jim is so proud of his adorable,innocent brother. Trouble is, John is too trusting. People try and take advantage of this. And Sherlock reminds him of Jim with all of his deductions. Jim is way nicer though. So when Sherlock sneaks John away for some private time, John goes with.He cries out for Jim, and maybe he finds him in time. Maybe he is too late. But Jim shows John he loves him still.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-27 07:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Jim has an adorable little brother, John. John loves him and clings to him, adores Jim's creepiness. But Jim goes away for a few years, to a boarding school. John is left at home with their father, a cold man. But with brilliant Jim gone, poor Johnny has to deal with an increasingly drunk and mean dad. John's innocence ready attracts all the people. Especially that creep Sherlock. Jim has to show John that Jim loves him best,and no others can touch him. John is glad his Jimmy loves him so much

Any warning

Imagine little angel John, young and innocent, meeting the mysterious dark winged Jim. Hidden away in a cover of heaven that was off limits, John sees the beautiful older creature. And Jim finds his innocence delicious. Corrupting that young thing and yet keeping him naive will be beautiful.

Abused John

(Anonymous) 2015-08-27 08:00 pm (UTC)(link)
John has a great step/half brother, but sees him rarely. Jim loves his little Johnny. John's dad has lots of gambling debts, and is an awful drunk. He gets violent and mean. John is good at hiding it all, and good at hiding how dad pays off his debts through letting people touch poor Johnny. Jim is not pleased. How dare someone touch what is his? John just wants Jim to love him, but is scared he will think him dirty. Jim shows him how wrong he is.

As dark or fluffy as needed. Any warnings

sex alarms Sherlock

(Anonymous) 2015-08-29 07:19 am (UTC)(link)
Sherlock really wants to have sex with John, but it makes him panicky. They have to take it really slow and gentle, and even then there are several failed attempts at a first time because Sherlock just can't go through with it. Maybe they finally manage to have sex for the first time but things don't really get easier after that and Sherlock still needs lots of time and gentleness and reassurance. John doesn't mind at all and he'd never dream of making Sherlock do anything he wasn't ready for, but Sherlock feels useless and hates that John has to coddle him so much. He's worried John will leave him if he's not a satisfactory bed partner, so he decides the best way to deal with it is to simply retreat to his mind palace when they're about to have sex, and let John have his way with him.

(RTYIs for any fics where Sherlock has issues with sex would be very welcome)

John/Sherlock, John/OMC. Omegaverse. Jealousy.

(Anonymous) 2015-08-30 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
Normally, Alpha!John dates Beta women, but one day he starts dating a younger, good-looking, interesting male Omega. Omega!Sherlock is panicked and jealous. He tries to find faults in this Omega, but the younger man, while he's not perfect, has nothing really bad about him and is truly interested in John as an Alpha and as a person. Maybe the Omega is nice enough not to complain to John when Sherlock insults him really badly, because he knows Sherlock is John's friend and is important to him. It doesn't mean he's going to break up with John though.

Sherlock tries to ruin their relationship, it was never very difficult with all those Beta women, but it doesn't work, and maybe John is really angry with him to boot. Sherlock deduces that John contemplates bonding with the Omega, but probably isn't 100% ready yet, so they just date, have sex and spend the Omega's heats together ('What if the Omega gets pregnant?!', 'What if John gives in and just bonds with him?!'). Distraught, Sherlock has to face his own feelings towards John and admit to himself that he does want John as a bondmate. Sherlock's very nature rebels against the rival, so he goes into heats despite his suppresants and not when he should have gone into heat if he wasn't taking them. 221B is saturated with the rivalling Omega pheromones.

Good John/Sherlock ending is preferable, as well as virgin!Sherlock, who had never wanted anyone before John.
