Full Prompt:
John knows every major prayer in every religion- Christian, Judiasm, Muslim- not because he's overly religious but because when you're holding a dying man's hand in yours, John finds a prayer eases their way.

(but my fill is a bit different: John learnt the major islamic prayer when he almost died in Afghanistan.)

Sherlock is Dream, Mycroft is his brother Death.

Filled: Part 20 Page 7 No. 25

Mycroft shaving Anthea's pussy. NC-17. Dub-con.

Prompt: J/S. Either John or Sherlock wakes up in the past after they both die (maybe against Moriarty, or during another case). When he finds the other, it turns out both of them remember the future and each other.

Up to the author whether or not the main character holds off on finding the other because he thinks they won't remember, or if he sets out to find them immediately. I just want some focus on the realization that they already know each other, and the utter relief that 1) it was real after all, and 2) they haven't lost the relationship they spent all that time building between them.

Prompt: Either John and Sherlock or Sherlock and Lestrade have a gigantic row and vow never to speak a word to each other again. Meanwhile, there's a crime scene to investigate.

How do they proceed? Sign language? Using a third party as a go-between? Monologuing aloud bitterly? Idek, people. I'm just looking for some crime scene humour.

Bonus points if it ends up in a spectacular reconciliation. (Still on the crime scene.)

It has an effect on Jim when John Watson calls him Mr.Moriarty.


Fill #17 cuddly, BAMF, assassin John courting Sherlock


"Sherlock learns that a spat of recent killings was done by a professional assassin. A man so feared that the criminal underworld is afraid to whisper his name. Sherlock goes off on his own to track him down, and is captured.

Sherlock braces himself for a cold-blooded killer, with nerves of steel and no remorse, with a reputation for ruthlessness that makes several hardened criminals check their closets before they go to bed - and meets John. Easygoing, good-natured, cuddly jumper-wearing John. Who thinks he's brilliant and hilarious, and can he take him out for a coffee?

Cue the weirdest courtship ever. Like, dates being crashed by Russian assassins, epic gunfights in the middle of London, Lestrade and the Yard going WTF, Mycroft questioning his brother's taste in men, etc."

Full Prompt
John and Sherlock knew each other before the series began. Quite well, actually. In fact, they're currently dating/married/epic, epic bros. When Scotland Yard hears about this, they're either horrified or completely disbelieving ('The Freak's married? a human?')

Theories about this mysterious partner abound: he's a saint. He's a serial killer. He's a cyborg, an alien, a rent boy, severely misguided, God.

And then John shows up, and he is so, so very normal. A two-legged, two-armed, ten-fingered-and-toed army doctor who looks at Sherlock with affection and warmth and is rewarded with the same.

Fill # 2

Prompt: Sherlock Holmes is the brattiest boy in the school: won’t listen, won’t do as he’s told, lounges at the back of the classall curled lip, insolent eyes and sarcastic comments until even calm, rather weary, jumper wearing Mr Watson snaps and sends him to the head master.

The Headmaster: stern, firm but fair Captain Watson might the one person who makes Sherlock a little bit nervous and he’s had about enough of Sherlock’s bad behaviour - if Sherlock is going to act like a naughty boy, he’ll be treated like a naughty boy and he is given a sound over the knee spanking which continues no matter how much he squeals and struggles.
Only when Sherlock is pink, gasping and, outwardly at least, repentant is he released and sent to Doctor Watson – the school medical officer.

Dr Watson is kind and concerned, although his gentle hands on Sherlock’s hot, sore skin do nothing to quell the flood of confusing sensations. Sherlock finds himself quite moved and when pressed confesses his erotic, confusing feelings centring for the most part on Mr Watson his long suffering form tutor.

By the time Doctor Watson’s finished with him, Sherlock is thoroughly aroused and rather chastised and goes to find Mr Watson to ‘apologise’ for his bad behaviour which, being Sherlock, he does in a way which neither Cpt nor Dr Watson foresaw...

7. Supernatural crossover: Someone becomes the new vessel for Castiel.
8. Sherlock and John are extremely noisy in bed.
9. Prince Sherlock sneaks away from the castle. John, thinking he’s homeless, offers him a place to stay.
10. John naked, wrapped in Sherlock’s coat.
11. John desensitizes Sherlock to touch.
12. Errant comment.
13. Either Mycroft or Sherlock comforting a crying Lestrade.
14. Supernatural crossover: Molly is a hunter.

Fill #16

Prompt: I would really like to read Sally giving Sherlock a taste of his own medicine for that deduction about the state of her knees, and pretty much publicly announcing the relationship between her and Anderson. She would've probably picked up a few little things about Sherlock's technique by now, so obviously when she realises just what he's been doing on his knees in the company of his...flatmate, I like to think she'd take it upon herself to broadcast it to the room by way of payback.

TL;DR Sally gets her own back and outs Sherlock and John at a crime scene, using Sherlock's own techniques to figure out what they've been up to.

(Possibly triggery for illness or depression or death, depending upon how you choose to interpret this (I leave that entirely up to reader/filler), happy endings entirely optional)

On Sherlock's good days, John leaves off work to run around London with him and watch him be brilliant. John will make them stop to eat at their favorite places and in the evening they'll go out to concerts.

On Sherlock's mediocre days, John will go on errands, perhaps put some hours into work, leaving Sherlock to hang around the flat doing experiments, play the violin or whatever. They'll order out for food and in the evening they'll stay in and cuddle on the sofa. John will run his fingers through Sherlock's hair and Sherlock will pretend to enjoy whatever show John chose to watch on the telly.

And on Sherlock's bad days, they'll both stay in. John will clean or read and try his hand at cooking something that might entice any sort of appetite out of his friend. In the evening John will crawl into bed with Sherlock and just hold him.

John doesn't know what he'll do if they should ever run out of days.

Something happens (maybe on a case, maybe in the supermarket, wherever) that causes John to inadvertently use his Dom voice. It brings someone unexpectedly submissive to their knees. Who and what happens after that is up to the filler.
