Important note regarding spoilers.


Please check the Sticky Post to find the newest active part and post your prompts there.

GENERAL GUIDELINES
+Anon posting is most definitely allowed, but not required.
+All kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance--whatever. Go wild! :D
+Keep things neat! Read prompts before you post to see if something similar has already been done, and while you are encouraged to prompt as much as you like, try to fill as well.
+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.
+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. Also at 7000, after the freeze a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.
+Multiple fills are encouraged! :) Just because a prompt has already been claimed or written by someone, do not be afraid to offer up a second fill.
+re: hijacking.

Please refrain from hijacking a prompt. Hijacking may be defined as responding to a prompt by taking a portion of it and adding your own ideas about what should be added, changed or eliminated. In addition, commenting with off topic jokes or chatter.

By hijacking, the focus of the prompt can be lost, and inappropriate threads created. By doing this fillers may be discouraged which is something no one wants to experience.

If a prompt leads you to an original idea, please create your own prompt. The chatter or love posts are the proper places to share jokes or talk about prompts that have inspired you.
(prepared by anonymous)

THE FILLED PROMPTS POST
Put links to your fills here. There are instructions on the actual post. I ask that 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, please 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.
Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods would be happy to explain.

CONTACTING MODS
Your mods for this meme are snowishness, marill_chan and ellie_hell. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to send a PM or contact us via the Page-A-Mod post.

WARNINGS/OFFENSIVE WORDING IN PROMPTS
Please consider warning for triggery prompts (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 right past a prompt that you dislike.

Remember, guys; Be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

Mental Patient!Sherlock

(Anonymous)
While watching the latest episode of Psych, I couldn't help thinking to myself: 'Well, if Shawn Spencer can do it, Sherlock Holmes damn well could too!'

So, I want to see Sherlock take a case that has him going undercover at an institution for the insane as a patient, with John and/or a yarder also going undercover as a doctor and/or orderly, to make sure Sherlock doesn't get into too much trouble.

No one's all that shocked when it turns out Sherlock is very good at acting insane, but Sherlock is rather surprised to find he really doesn't mind being in the asylum. It's a nice facility, the doctors aren't complete crackpots and fun to run circles around, and, what with the pyromaniac who insists that his name is Guy Fawkes and the girl whose Dissociative Identity Disorder has given her personalities that range from Frank The Plumber to Shirley Temple...well, it's certainly never boring.

Bonus points if, in the end, John has to pretty much drag Sherlock out of the institution (maybe literally).

Extra bonus points if maybe Mycroft uses his omnipotent powers to extend Sherlock's stay a little...as a vacation, of sorts.

So! Fanon tends to portray Sherlock as utterly indifferent to food, sleep and healthcare, if not violently opposed to them all, since his body is "just transport."

Let's subvert that a little, shall we?

Sherlock, while capable of ignoring his body's needs while actively pursuing a case, is a bit obsessive about his health and wellness at other times--after all, his transport requires proper maintenance to avoid a tedious (and boring) break-down. So in between sulks and experiments, he is meticulous about a specific exercise regimen, prepares his own multivitamens in the kitchen, and (since cooking is also boring) consumes elaborate and vaguely loathesome shakes involving things like powdered kale and raw eggs.

Oh, and if he even so much as suspects he might be coming down with an illness/injury, he badgers John about it incessantly (since all doctors are idiots, but John rather less so than others). Possibly this involves things Sherlock has looked up on WebMD.

TL;DR: Sherlock, when not distracted by shiny objects work, is obsessive about his health.

seconded because holy shit the mental images.

Moriarty is a Muppet Puppet

(Anonymous)
So every time I watch TGG I am continually astonished at how very much Moriarty's voice sounds like a muppet. Therefore my very cracky challenge to you is write a story where Moriarty is in fact a very life like (robotic? how do you get rid of the strings?) puppet being controlled by a muppet who is the real villain.

A cute puppy for anyone who manages to make Miss Piggy the puppet master. (Nothing against Miss Piggy of course it's just that her voice seems the most similar to Moriarty's IMO).

If you manage to make this non-cracky you will win the internet.

What is this IDE...?

Based off of that scene in Tangled

(Anonymous)
Moriarty has Sherlock and John in his clutches yet again - or, an alternate ending to TGG, I suppose.

He makes Sherlock and offer - come with him, see the world and watch it burn.

Sherlock refuses, until Moriarty offers his incentive. Either he goes, or John is gunned down by the snipers waiting in the wings.

He has two minutes alone with John to decide. Here's where the dialogue comes in.

TL;DR Sherlock: I can't let you die.

John: But if you go with him, you'll die.


Happy ending please!

Re: Based off of that scene in Tangled

(Anonymous)
Oh, I like this. It could turn out to be a great story. Let's hope somebody will take this one. ^^

When Molly Met Lestrade

Pretty much what it says on the tin. They've been playing the hell out of When Harry Met Sally on one of the cable stations here lately and I'd like to see Molly/Lestrade fic based (however loosely) on the movie.

The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive


While sorting through my old junk, I found this:



It reminded me of our favorite Holmes brothers. Maybe they wrote up the list when they were kids? Maybe they add to it to spite each other?

Pick a rule (or several or make up your own!) and write a fill for it.


Re: The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive

(Anonymous)
That looks like something Sherlock would have pinned to wall, with a screwdriver or pocket knife.

S/J plus Lestrade plus 'Zelda.'

(Anonymous)
John and Lestrade become gaming buddies.

They know they're probably way too old to be playing computer games but they've been gamers since childhood and it's just something they love.

When they both start up a game of The Legend of Zelda, John and Lestrade find that their lives are taken over by quests and obvious bloody puzzles that don't become obvious until you've spent 2 hours trying to do the wrong thing! *ahem*

Sherlock is annoyed. Why won't John pay him attention and leave that stupid, tedious console alone?

One day, when there are no cases, Sherlock sits with them in his pyjamas and moans about the game.

That is, until he becomes OBSESSED! And brilliant at it.

(If there's a scene where John finds him playing it on his own in the middle of the night, I will dance for joy!)

Re: S/J plus Lestrade plus 'Zelda.'

Seconded!

TW: depression

(Anonymous)
A concerned John notices that Sherlock has succumbed to depression, but Sherlock at first refuses to accept his diagnosis, as he can see no logical reason for him to be depressed. John tries to help.

Hurt/comfort would be a godsend.

Source-code inspired (re-prompt)

(Anonymous)
Though you don't need to have seen the movie to understand the prompt. :)

Former army-medic John Watson is repeatedly sent back in time to gather as much information as he can in the eight minutes before a bomb explodes in London. However, while on his missions, he meets a certain brilliant stranger called Sherlock Holmes, who he is told died in the explosion. He becomes obsessed with saving him.

Re: Source-code inspired (re-prompt)

(Anonymous)
Haven't watched the movie at all, kind of don't want to since my motto is ORIGINALITY FOREVER and if it somehow coincides with the actual movie happenings then it won't be plagiarism at all because I never knew about it (SCHOOL, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY PARANOIA)

But hey, doing this! Might be a while, since I'm also working on a child abuse prompt from the previous one and kind of tied up with school, but oh my gosh obsessed with saving Sherlock Holmes and sending back in time? Never knew I would want this so much.

Do want!

Crossover with Raffles

(Anonymous)
Sherlock and John cross paths with the modern-day equivalents of AJ Raffles and Bunny Manders. Maybe Sherlock has to solve a crime committed by them? Or catches them mid-heist?

I have read the one unfinished Raffles-Sherlock crossover fic that exists, but I want moar. :D

Genderswap, in which Femlock (who is not actually all that femme) wants her flatmate Jo Watson to teach her how to act more stereotypically feminine for an undercover case. Jo reluctantly obliges.

Sherlock has to go down on a bunch of women, and John, for whatever reason, has to watch. Bonus if they end up having sex at some point.

You know, I read a fic that had exactly this a while back, but I can't remember the author or title, sorry... :( But have you checked the Delicious Archive? It might be worth a try!

Warning: suicidal ideation

(Anonymous)
Re-prompting this, even though I'm not the OP. I want this so bad. :(

"Will caring about them help save them?"
"Nope."
"Then I'll continue not to make that mistake."

John starts to feel suicidal, and Sherlock realises that caring about someone can help save them after all.

Sherlock without his genius

(Anonymous)
An accident leaves Sherlock unable to deduce anymore. Either it causes him pain when he tries or he's unable to concentrate. Whatever reason, Sherlock is now without his skills and he's nothing without them. He's just another insignificant human being among the crowds and John will no longer wish to be around him because he's so NORMAL! Without his great mind Sherlock is nothing. Nothing!

Or that what he's convinced of telling himself but John isn't taking any of this. He tells him there's more to Sherlock than his great mind. True that was a big part of him, but that doesn't mean Sherlock is now worthless. He's still Sherlock and John is going to help him see that.

Up to the anon if Sherlock gets his skills back or not by the end but if he does I want Sherlock to come out learning something about himself through this experience.

CHANGE! YA GOT CHANGE!?

(Anonymous)
One of the many homeless people Sherlock goes to for information is the bum from bum reviews. He's an odd one especially when he starts rambling but he gets the job done well enough. Sherlock usually pays him with random movie tickets (explaining how the bum always gets to see movies now and again) but there are times even Sherlock gets tired of hearing how it was the greatest movie the bum has seen in his life.

idk, just go with it somehow.

Re: CHANGE! YA GOT CHANGE!?

...A reference to That Guy With The Glasses? On the Sherlock kink meme?! :O

Watson of canon was born in Edinburgh, right?

I am in desperate need of some Scottish!John. I can't even explain it, and I have no idea why I want it, but I do.
So, can we have John just being Scottish? Maybe he gets angry and has some Scottish!Rage. Or maybe John is very accomplished at Scottish dance. Or he just wears a kilt!

I'm not fussy, just bring on some Scottish!John :-D

I want this because of reasons.
