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/Lestrade *noncon & dubcon*

(Anonymous) 2015-06-19 11:28 am (UTC)(link)
Young John has an abusive father who when his gambling debts become dangerously high, sells John into the sex trade. A few years down the line, Lestrade has been roped into his first undercover op and is screwing it up because he looks suspicious because he won't sleep with any of the prostitutes. John tells Lestrade what's up and offers to help with his cover if Lestrade makes sure that John gets out of there once the op's over. They have angsty fucks because Lestrade feels guilty and like he's taking advantage of young John and John feels rejected that the one nice guy he's met and idolises a little as his savior is only fucking him to keep his cover. Once the op's over and John rescued (and of course he got injured while trying to keep Lestrade safe) they both sadly go their separate ways. But that means that later down the track when they meet again via Sherlock, they meet each other on more equal footing and have a healthy relationship with much fluff.

Not really anon, just too darn lazy to make an account. Also posted on the Ao3 here:

When Lestrade jogged up the steps to Sherlock’s new flat on Baker Street (much nicer than the last one, if you ask him, although who knows how long it’ll stay that way with Sherlock living there), he hadn’t expected much more than Sherlock’s usual ‘I’m going to pretend I’m not desperate for a case so I can watch you beg’ game. And that’s what he got, at least for the first minute or so, until Sherlock said “I need an assistant”, and glanced over at the other man in the room, whom Lestrade hadn’t yet even noticed, he was standing so still and silent. Although Lestrade honestly, really should have noticed him, because the man was openly gaping at him.

John Watson had actually thought that seeing a human skull just sitting casually on the mantelpiece would be the most surreal experience he’d had that day. He was horribly, grossly, incredibly wrong. Greg somehow looked both exactly the same, and very different. His close-cropped hair- still the same cheap, efficient haircut- was streaked through with silver. His familiar warm brown eyes held a sort of exhaustion that ran far deeper than just a few sleepless nights. John snapped out of his reverie when he realised that his staring had been noticed. Stepping forward, he cleared his throat awkwardly, wondering how to address the man. Professionally would be best, given the circumstances.

“Sergeant Lestrade. You’re looking well.” A lie, but the sort of polite lie that no one ever bothers to call out.

Lestrade blinked. The man was familiar, but he just couldn’t place him. He hadn’t seen him since his promotion, but that hardly narrowed it down, seeing as that was only a few years ago.

“It’s, uh, Inspector now, actually.” He said, for want of anything better to say.

Sherlock jumped in before John could reply. “You know each other! Or rather you know him, John, but he doesn’t recognise you. Oh, this is very interesting, let me see…”

“Shut up, Sherlock.” Greg and John said, almost in unison. John smiled tentatively at Greg. Greg still looked confused. Sherlock looked put out.

Greg stepped forward. “I’m sorry, he’s right, though. You look very familiar, but I’m afraid I can’t quite place you.”

John didn’t much feel like rehashing their complicated history, or even hinting at it, in front of Sherlock. No doubt the man would have it all sussed out soon enough, but until then, John preferred to keep it to himself for the moment. He smiled tightly at Greg.

“Perhaps another time. You have murders to attend to, I gather?” He inclined his head towards Sherlock.

Greg nodded, gathering himself mentally. There was something about the man that made him feel just slightly off kilter, but not in a bad way. He turned to Sherlock.

“You’ll come, yes?”

Sherlock nodded, still looking between him and the man like they were a particularly mysterious double murder. “I’ll follow along in a cab.” He agreed.

“Thank you.” With a nod and a wave, Greg turned and left.

What an awesome prompt! So excited to see where you go with this.

Chapter 2

Once Greg was gone, Sherlock advanced upon John, intent on questioning him. John, realising this, headed him off.

“Better go solve your murder. Greg’s expecting you.”

Sherlock raised an eyebrow. “Greg, hmm? So you do know him quite well, but you also know him in a professional capacity. You’re no policeman, so you’ve not worked with him, but Lestrade tends to stay professional with the people he meets, so you must have been in contact with him for an extended period of time… An intern perhaps? But there’s more there, you-” His eyes raked over John. “You had sex!” He cried, looking both triumphant and mildly horrified.

John rubbed a hand over his face.. “Yes, well done, Sherlock, now why don’t you go solve a murder, instead of my personal life. Much more useful.”

“You should come with me.” Sherlock suggested. “I was going to suggest it anyway. You’re a doctor, you can help me with the corpse. And I get into a great deal of trouble, I could definitely use an army man with a illegal firearm.”

John frowned. “Wait, how did you know about the-”

Sherlock waved a dismissive hand. “Of course you have an illegal firearm. No time to get it now, of course, but you really should come.” He gave John a sly look. “Lestrade will be there. His wife is cheating on him again, they’ll probably get a divorce soon.”

John sighed. Sherlock was obviously tenacious, there was no way he’d just give up on this. “Alright, alright. I’ll come, on one condition. Stop asking me about Greg. You can try to figure it out yourself, or something, but I don’t want to talk about it tonight. Alright?”

Sherlock scowled and nodded. He could probably convince John further, but they were wasting precious time, and Anderson was probably tramping all over his crime scene that very second. Turning, he swung on his coat and jogged down the steps.

“Come on, then.” He called.

John came, grabbing his jacket and following with a small smile.


Sally’s voice crackled over Lestrade’s radio. “Freak’s here, bringing him in.” Anderson immediately got up, presumably to go find Sherlock and start another pointless argument. Lestrade sighed, he didn’t know why the man bothered. He followed after, to find Sally and Anderson looking angry and Sherlock looking smug. As usual. Only now there was the addition of the other man, the one who’d been in Sherlock’s flat. And was apparently now tagging along to crime scenes. Lestrade knew he ought to protest, he really shouldn’t be allowing just any old civilian onto a crime scene, but if he was honest with himself, he knew Sherlock would have his way anyway. Plus, he was rather curious about the man. Shaking his head, he waved the two upstairs.
Lestrade gestured at the crime scene, looking up at Sherlock. “Five minutes.” Normally he wouldn’t even give Sherlock that long, but he was hoping for the chance to talk to his companion. Sherlock obviously knew this, given the smirk he shot at Lestrade before he crouched by the body, all his focus now trained on the crime scene.

John hung by the wall, watching Sherlock work. He felt Greg sidle up to him, watched him in the periphery of his vision.

“Uh, I didn’t get your name earlier?” Greg said awkwardly.

John turned to face him. “John. John Watson.”

Greg’s mouth dropped open, memories flooding him.

John’s legs wrapped around his waist, his moist breath against Greg’s ear. “Try to look less constipated and more like you’re enjoying yourself.” John’s mouth on his, John’s too-loud-to-be-real moans.

“Doctor Watson.” Sherlock called, not looking up from the body.

John shot Greg an apologetic smile, and crouched down next to Sherlock, Greg still gaping at the back of his head.

You're writing my prompt! And doing an absolutely fantastic job at it too! :D :D :D :D I'm really enjoying the character interactions between all of them.

Also, thank goodness you posted on Ao3 or it would of been months before I found it, I have my prompts bookmarked but I don't check them terribly regularly /o\
