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. "Jacob's Ladder"/"Silent Hill"-inspired AU. Dark. Possible Drug Abuse/Overdose..

There's another, much darker and scarier version of London, and Sherlock finds his way there by accident. He needs to solve its terrifying mysteries to get home.

It can be the real thing, but I'd very much love if it was a horrible drug-induced hallucination (in that case I'd love John to take care of him and help him through it) and/or some sort of schizophrenic fit. If it's real though, I'd love John to be with Sherlock in that dark version of London (he'd be thrilled by the battleground like that, I'm sure, and would do his best to keep Sherlock's safe, while Sherlock investigates the whole nightmare).

I've never really heard of Jacob's Ladder or Silent Hill, would you still be interested in a fill?

OP here. I'm definitely interested!!! I only mentioned SH and JL to give people some idea of what the prompt is about. They aren't important here otherwise.

Can't wait to read your story if you decide to write it. :)

not the op but I hope you're still interested in filling this prompt. I love dark and scary. ^____^

Have you read the Welcome to Silent Hill series?? It's the story that keeps getting recc'd to me when I want to read something dark. I'm not sure it 100% fills your prompt but I thought I'd point it out just in case. (

Maybe I'll give it a try, though I'm not sure I'm going to like the actual "Silent Hill" crossover with SH's own attributes. Not exactly my thing. I just wanted something very dark, but still closer to "Sherlock", with John saving Sherlock's (hallucinating or not exactly) arse.
But thanks for the rec anyway! :)
