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/John, teen!A.U., triggers for rape/sexual assault, victim-blaming

(Anonymous) 2016-02-20 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
Teen!John is sexually assaulted, but no one believes him when he tries to report the incident--no one except teen!Sherlock.

Lots of healing and young love. Hurt/comfort. Angst in spades.

I like this idea; I'm going to give it a try. It will be a couple of weeks though before I can post anything. Thank you for the lovely prompt.

Fill Whispers of the Heart chapter one

(Anonymous) 2016-08-08 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Who was I kidding! When inspiration strikes it can't be ignored! This is the first chapter of 'Whispers of the Heart'.

“Hey, John! Guess what?! Anderson got caught cheating on the mid-term exam! Just like you said he would. And without me even saying anything to old Billingsgate about it! Let’s go out and celebrate! Chinese? You’re hungry, aren’t you?”

The speaker was a tall, somewhat gangly teenager with tousled dark hair and a perpetual lop-sided grin on his face, especially when he was in the company of his best friend and roommate John Watson. He’d taken the stairs up to their dorm room in twos and burst through door with a bang, so excited was he to share the news of Anderson’s downfall with John.

John, the boy in the room, couldn’t have been more different in appearance from his friend Sherlock; he was shorter and had neatly trimmed blond hair, his uniform, in contrast to Sherlock’s, was always tidy with shirt tucked in and tie knotted carefully at his neck. Sherlock on the other hand had a rather haphazard appearance generally consisting of shirt sleeves rolled up, tie loosely looped−and usually crooked−and trousers slightly too small for his rapidly growing frame.

John was lying on his bed, facing the wall when Sherlock burst unexpectedly through their door. To Sherlock’s surprise, he gasped sharply at the noise and turned his head, startled. As Sherlock watched, he sat up suddenly, wincing as he did so, to answer him. He seemed confused, most unusually for him, and stammered slightly, “Um, ah, actually no, Sherlock, I’m not really hungry right now. I… I… ate already, in the caff. But that’s great about Anderson!” He made a conscious effort to sound more enthusiastic. “You are amazing Sherlock, you always know what’s going on!”

At John's response, Sherlock stopped still in the doorway and stared at him. Now, one of the most notable features of Sherlock Holmes were his unexpectedly bright crystal blue eyes; most of the time when they were fixed on John they glowed with the luminescence of phosphorus, as though John were the source of some mysterious light source only known to Sherlock. Sherlock usually reserved his other look, a piercingly bright stare, that to most who were subjected to it felt as though they were being impaled by glacier ice, for other people. However, at this moment he was directing the latter riveting gaze at John.

John looked away. “What Sherlock? I’m just a bit tired that’s all! It’s been a long week with biology mid-term and stuff…”

Sherlock, trying to hide the anxiety he felt at John’s startling out of character behaviour, said quietly, “You are never tired from studying, John, you love science. What’s wrong?”


“Your colouring is significantly paler than normal, your hair is untidy, your trousers have a wet stain on both knees and you have two symmetrical bruises on the inside of each wrist. Now what is wrong? What happened?”

John was stubbornly silent.

Sherlock, feeling nowhere near the confidence he was projecting, for he’d never seen John in this mood before, whatever was bothering John was something totally new to him, tried to buy time by changing the subject. “How was the football tryout? Good then?”

At this question, what little light had been in John’s eyes died, to Sherlock’s shock. “Um… I’ve changed my mind about the new team after all. I… I… think I’ll just stick with the team I’m on, or maybe even give football a rest for a while.”

Sherlock, knowing now that something was indeed wrong with his friend, advanced slowly to the bed and sat down carefully beside him. He knew he wasn’t good at ‘feelings’, it was one area, of many, that he relied on John’s guidance for. He was way over his head now and fighting panic; something was very wrong with John and he didn’t know how to deal with it.

“John?” he said softly, “You know? I’m tired too now that I think about it. Can I rest with you, you know like we did when we were kids, when Mycroft kicked me out and I used to come to your place? I know it seems silly but I feel like I need that, please John?”

He wilted in relief when John nodded silent agreement, only to have his stomach clench sickeningly when he saw John’s eyes well up with tears before he turned to the wall again."
