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/Sherlock. Medieval AU, A/B/O AU.

King Mycroft wants to marry off his Omega brother. He's not sure who deserves to become related to the royal family, so he announces the contest for the noble Alphas. Sherlock is furious. He throws tantrums, embarrasses Mycroft in front of important guests, endlessly complains to his old, loving nanny (Mrs Hudson? <3), tries to run away more than once, etc.

Sir John Watson comes back from a war and learns about the contest, as somebody tries to convince him to take part in it. He's very sceptical and not enthusiastic at all. Maybe he's not noble enough, but is still allowed to take part. He becomes much more enthusiastic when he sees Sherlock. And Sherlock is immediately smitten with him. And Mycroft is like: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ).

Despite the mutual interest, John still has to fight for Sherlock's hand in marriage, since the contest has already been announced. It doesn't prevent Sherlock from giving his some tokens of affection and little messages with tips on how to beat some of his opponents.

goddamn it I JUST fucking wrote a novel-length ABO johnlock fic and I swore I wouldn't write any more (it just doesn't feel queer enough, ya know?), but I'm feeling inklings of inspiration rn (plus this is like all my favorite tropes, haha)... might consider this for my nanowrimo (slash... maybe I'll write it, but make it NBD queer medieval marriages instead of ABO....?? would that defeat the purpose?)

Not at all! A/B/O or not, I just prefer John as a more dominant partner, particularly (or specifically) when it comes to sex. Other than that, I'm okay with pretty much everything.
And thank you for considering it! :)

Okey doke... research has been started hoo boy. I'm a slow writer tho, so don't hold your breath here, haha. In case I lose this prompt, my ao3 name is nefariosity if you want to keep an eye out there.

(PS - dominant sherlock during sex.... does such a thing even exist....????????)

Perfect! It's okay, take your time. :)
I think 85% of all fanfiction has dominant Sherlock, which I actively avoid reading, because, personally for me, it DOES NOT exist and often makes no sense in some scenarios. :/

(Anonymous) 2015-09-26 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I know right? I feel your pain although I think 85% might be a bit high lol. But yeah I feel horrible about this but dominant Sherlock is usually an auto stop reading for me oops

Yep Dom or Alpha Shrelock is an imediate pass for me. Unfortunately it seems to be the more popular trope :(
