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.

John, Mycroft- Not Your Fault, h/c, angst, Abominable Bride

(Anonymous) 2016-01-14 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
So, for me, the saddest part in the Abominable Bride was Mycroft blaming himself for Sherlock's drug use. I need a fix it.

After getting Sherlock settled back into Baker Street, John calls Mycroft to tell him that it's not his fault.

Deanoning to post this that popped into my head:

As it turned out, Sherlock wasn’t quite as ready to begin work as he thought he was when he got into the car with John and Mary. The brief bout of lucidity was followed, frighteningly enough, with Sherlock losing consciousness once again as soon as he sat down, his head lolling back against the seat. He muttered unintelligible fragments of words and sentences as the car sped toward Baker Street, John and Mary both monitoring Sherlock’s pulse and airway while discussing care.

“Baker Street? Really, John?” Mary said, looking up from Sherlock’s pale face. “Shouldn’t we be going to hospital? Or, at least, shouldn’t we be taking him to our place so we can keep an eye on him?”

John laughed wryly. “I don’t think we have a choice other than Baker Street. We can’t take him to A&E without alerting the authorities that a murderer is on the loose; Mycroft can fix this, but only if we don’t leave too many messes for him to clean up in the meantime. And Baker Street is probably the next best place to handle a near overdose. I’ve had a kit stashed there for years; never needed it ‘til now, but I’m certain Sherlock didn’t get rid of it.”

Mary cocked an eyebrow in mild surprise as John continued. “He’s not stupid. Believe it or not, he knows that this is a possible result of drug use, and I think he thought of me as a kind of safety net.” John rubbed his eyes, adding, “He’d been clean for so long, Mary. All those times Mycroft thought it was a ‘danger night,’ and I never found anything, never saw anything, never had a reason to suspect so much as slip-up. He was in a bad way if he took this much after not using for so long.”

Once they arrived at Baker Street, it was controlled chaos for a while. The pair manhandled Sherlock up the seventeen stairs to the flat and got him to the couch. John ran for his emergency kit – as he predicted, untouched – while Mary positioned Sherlock safely and continued to monitor him. A dose of naloxone, and Sherlock was sputtering back awake with a fierce headache and, John thought, a slightly guilty look in his eyes.

Mary was able to convince Sherlock that he needed to be in bed; Moriarty would wait, as dead men were so good at doing. John shook his head in a bit of wonder that Mary was able to so easily convince Sherlock of what he needed to do, guiding him back to his bedroom and helping him to change to pajamas and get into bed. She sat with him in the short time it took him to fall into a much-less-drugged sleep, then returned to the lounge to see John staring at his phone.


“I can’t believe I’m about to do this,” John said, “but I think I need to call Mycroft. We had a bit of a talk getting off the plane, and I think I’m actually worried about him.”

Mary went to the kitchen to make some tea and give John some privacy as John dialed Mycroft’s private line. Unsurprisingly, Mycroft picked up immediately.

“Holmes speaking. Dr. Watson, what news have you?” John thought he could hear the same anxiety in Mycroft’s voice that was there on the plane.

“Mycroft, he’s going to be fine. We got him back to Baker Street, gave him some naloxone to counter at least the opiate part of things, and he’s sleeping right now. He’s going to have a hell of a hangover, but I don’t think there’s any permanent damage done. You caught him in time.”

That last sentence was deliberate. John took a deep breath and continued on.

“Mycroft, I feel a little strange saying this, but I think someone has to. This wasn’t your fault.”

“John, really, I,” Mycroft began to deflect.

“No, really, Mycroft. Don’t you think I know a little bit about you by now? I don’t believe for a second that you don’t care, especially about your brother. And you know what? That’s not a weakness; that’s part of being human. You’re right to care, but you’re not right to blame yourself. Sherlock’s behavior is not your fault. It isn’t your fault he’s used drugs in the past, and it isn’t your fault he used them today.”

John heard a very soft sigh that sounded a bit like, “But I should have,” so he cut Mycroft off again.

“No, listen to me. Maybe Sherlock had some really good reasons for needing to dull the pain today. But none of them are your responsibility. From what I can piece together, you did everything in your power to give him a chance at living, from the moment we got on that helicopter to Appledore. You may be the British Government, but you’re not omnipotent, and you’re not responsible for everything that happens to Sherlock.”

Here John paused. After a beat, Mycroft sighed and said, “Thank you, John. I shall take your comments seriously. It is possible that I have become…too close to the matter to be objective.”

“Happens to the best of us,” John said with a laugh. “Even to people who aren’t goldfish.

“You will keep me posted?” Mycroft continued.

“Of course,” John said. “But I think you can rest easy at the moment.”

With that, Mycroft ended the call, and, a second later, John shut his phone off. He went to the kitchen and joined Mary, and together they waited for Sherlock to recover.
