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.

Sherlock has Cotard delusion

(Anonymous) 2015-06-21 01:01 pm (UTC)(link)
So I just read a really good fic in another fandom where a character suffered from this, and it got me thinking about Sherlock

Sherlock suffers from Cortard Delusion. Also known as Walking Corpse Syndrome. This is a genuine mental illness whereby the person beleives themselves to be dead.

For Sherlock, the onset of this could be post Reichenbach, post Serbia or maybe post HLV.

Maybe Sherlock displays some of his more self destructive tendancies. What does it matter? He's already dead.

Maybe, because Sherlock knows all the signs of death in a corpse, he becomes sure that he can feel all of these signs in his own body (he is permenantly cold, is convinced he has no pulse, can feel the stiffness of rigor mortis in his limbs, perhaps he can even feel the rot inside his body)

Bonus if Sherlock casually anounces the 'fact' that he is dead to John. John, as a doctor and a friend, is horrified that Sherlock beleives this to be true.

(More info on Cortard Delusion over on the wiki: )

It was a fill for a prompt over at the Avengers kink meme. If I find it again I'll post a link if you're interested.

I had nearly finished a fill from this when I saw that someone else wanted to try this - would you be okay with multi fills?

As the person who also wanted to take a stab at this, I'd love to see other takes as well! I love this prompt
