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 Holmes is not a virgin, far from it—in his drug days he was an connoisseur of sexual depravity and a very greedy bottom—but years before he met John, after an overdose, unable to reconcile his out-of-control drug-fueled lust for pain and humiliation with the cold, rational, dominant person he thought he should be, he swore off all sex and drugs. When he met John, all the old desires re-emerged, but John is so invested in his own heterosexuality, so adamantly straight-laced, and Sherlock is so deeply ashamed of his own proclivities, that it's hopeless. John and he can't have a relationship because Sherlock would never be able to hide the needy, greedy slut he becomes during sex, and John would never want to unbend enough to give Sherlock what he craves.

Enter someone—an old army buddy of John's; a client; Sherlock's old flame, Victor Trevor; a new criminal mastermind; whomever—who twigs to Sherlock's proclivities and ruthlessly pursues him with offers of both sex and drugs. Despairing of any possibility with regards to John, Sherlock succumbs to his pursuer and enters into an unhealthy relationship that erodes his reason, and threatens the Work, as well as his friendship with John. Now it's up to John to save Sherlock from himself, and the only way he can think to do it is to offer himself up as a replacement for Sherlock's new 'friend'. Can a man who has long insisted—to himself and to others—that he is straight and sexually 'normal', overcome his own strong inhibitions and give Sherlock what he needs, and if so, can he convince Sherlock that he's both serious and willing?

NB: If you can take all that AND make it a casefic, I will absolutely love you in perpetuity.

Claim! I've got about half a page of notes, I think this is gonna be pretty slow burn, both with OMC and John, although for the OMC it's not so much slow burn as much as a lot of set up (like a lot) so buddy, strap yourself in, this is gonna be a long fic. But there's a case! Dunno if I can speak for the quality, though, I wrote it myself and I've never done case fic before

OP here, and I am so psyched! No one has ever claimed one of my prompts, so there's that excitement, and then longfic! casefic! Plus, you're off to an excellent start with the beginning posted below. Thanks, anon!author! You're my hero.

In Safe Hands

The air at the crime scene was distinctly uncomfortable in a way that usually was reserved for particularly gruesome death. So when they got to the scene of the crime itself Sherlock had been expecting something other than the clean and in fact completely bloodless scene he found. The cause of the officers’ discomfort was clearly apparent. The man on the bed was naked save for a tightly laced corset. His position was clearly sexual, face down on the bed but propped up on his knees, legs spread obscenely wide. His hands were stretched out in front of him, tied securely to the headboard.

“This wasn’t an accident.” Sherlock declared.

“How do you know?” Lestrade asked.

Sherlock indicated the intricate ropework around the victim’s wrist. “This isn’t the work of an amateur. The murderer knew what he was doing. He wouldn’t have made a mistake like this, it was deliberate. Don’t think it was the boyfriend, either.”

He whirled through the room, looking through the closet, the cupboards, every cranny of the bedroom.

“Definitely not the boyfriend.”

John tried to follow Sherlock’s train of thought. “Why not?”

“They lived here, together.” Sherlock popped his head into the ensuite bathroom. “Two toothbrushes, two kinds of shampoo.” he strode back to the centre of the room, gesturing at the closet. “Clothes, in two distinct styles. This was their bedroom. Where, presumably, they had sex together. Very vanilla and boring sex, evidently.”

John waved a hand towards the bed. “Doesn’t look boring to me.”

“Yes, because it wasn’t the boyfriend! Look, there’s nothing in here. No toys, or more rope, not a single pair of fancy knickers, nothing that might indicate they might be doing anything...interesting.” He pointed at the bed. “You’re seriously think they’re doing something like this, and they own nothing other than a length of rope and one corset? He had a lover. Obviously.”

“They could have a special room.” Anderson piped up. “Some people do, you know. Like a sex dungeon.”

Sherlock raised an eyebrow. “You’ve searched this house. Is there a sex dungeon?”

“Well, no.” Anderson admitted. “But there could be a secret room.”

Sherlock rolled his eyes in disgust. “There is no secret room. And if they did have one, then they would be there instead of here.”

He turned to leave. “Come along, John!”

“Wait, where are you going?” Lestrade called.

Sherlock turned and smirked. “To talk to the murderer.”

I've got the thing posted here ( on the Ao3, so I don't know if I want to keep updating it on here. OP, do you have any significant objections to me updating solely on that site? I can update in both places if you really want, it's just a hassle.

No objections at all to you posting exclusively on AO3. Have I said thank you? Because really, thank you so much. Enjoying it so far and looking forward to more.
