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 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

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!"
