Welcome to the spoiler free Filled Prompts Post!
(This is the special section for filled prompts from the Spoiler Free Prompt Post.)
If you filled a prompt from Parts 1-23 and up, please use the FPP #1.
If you filled a prompt from Parts 24 and up, please use the FPP #2.

This is an archive created to make it simple for people to browse through both filled and unfilled prompts.

Let me explain how this works:

As you can see, this post has a lot of  comments like this one.

Each one of these comments stands for a page in the meme. They each have a numbered list of hyperlinks on them. Each of these hyperlinks leads to a prompt from that page, obviously! It's actually a very simple system-- the prompts are in number order in the comment that corresponds with the page it is on.

Now, that is only an archive of prompts. So here's where you, fillers, come into play! Once you've filled something (this will be easier for you if you remember what page the prompt is on when you fill it, but otherwise you will just have to look through the comments) reply to the comment that corresponds with your prompt.

Let's say I filled prompt number 2 in the above comment. (I didn't, but let's just say I did.)
I would reply to that comment like so:

(I'm not linking to it because I didn't fill that prompt. But you get the idea, right?)

It's very important that you put a link to your  fill, and not to the prompt itself.


THE PURPOSE OF DOING THIS: It will make a clear, organized list that people can scroll through and a) immediately know whether a prompt is filled or not, b) get a link to it if it is filled and c) find the prompt if it hasn't been filled to go fill it! 

I know it might seem complicated, but I promise it is very simple. (:

It is AMAZINGLY, VITALLY IMPORTANT that you put the number of the prompt in the title of your comment! Please, do not forget to do that! Also remember to link to your fill, and not the prompt. This will make things a lot easier for archivists.

The way you can see what's been filled is by the numbers in the title of each reply. Using logic: If you don't see a number in a reply, then it hasn't been filled yet! (:

+ Regarding WiPs: You are free to post them here unfinished by your own discretion. Whether you decide to do that, or one of your WiPs is caught in an archiving sweep, please do not start a new comment for updates to your fill! Instead, reply to your original WiP comment with either an "Updated" or a "Finished" or what-have-you.

+ IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC... a good way to do this is to simply go to "Find" on your browser (Ctrl + F) and search for buzzwords. (i.e. "tentacles" or "wings" or "cat.") Generally our paraphrased prompts will include buzzwords from the original prompt. (:

If you have any questions regarding the Filled Prompts Post, please don't hesitate to ask. Send a PM to ellie_hell or ask on the Page-A-Mod post.

Sherlock accidentally uses a 'how-to-romance-someone' advice from the internet to apologize to John. John is baffled and it takes some time for either of them to catch the mistake.

Fill: (parent for additional parts)

AU - Shadowman!Sherlock
Sherlock is a shadowman. He can travel via different shadow/darkness. He steals peoples souls when they aren't looking.

He meets John, who has the purest soul he has ever seen. When he tries to steal it, he realizes that he can't. No made what he does, he can't touch it.

What he can do is wrap himself around John and seep in some of its warmth.

Eventually, John's soul turns Sherlock human.

The Shadowman

I have just had my heart thoroughly broken. Ripped out of me and jumped on, even. I am at the very least, a rabbit of negative euphoria.

So can someone write me a happy fic? I'm thinking gay/ace Sherlock coming out to a paternal!Lestrade and it all being ok.


Filled # 6: Adjustment (by tenderly_wicked and skadi_zlata)

Full prompt

So Sherlock is now dating some guy. Of course, John is surprised by this (and a bit disapointed because he's attracted to Sherlock himself), but he accepts it. Even when Sherlock's new partner moves in and John moves out, because he doesn't feel comfortable seeing them together.

Sherlock asks John if he would be willing to answer any questions he might have as Sherlock is new to the whole relationship thing. So John is a sounding board for all of Sherlock's questions, such as "What do you do if you make your boyfriend angry with you?" or "What should you do if you have some problems with sexual compatibility?" or "What if your partner wants to do something you aren't fond of?"

John gives out answers- find a way to make it up to him, work out some compromise, and sometimes you have to do what they want to make them happy. The problem is that Sherlock's new boyfriend is very abusive, and when he asks about for instance, sexual compatibility he really means "What do you do if your boyfriend is making you have sex when you don't want to?" And because Sherlock isn't saying everything, John thinks that the problems are normal things and Sherlock thinks that the way he's being treated is normal and he's at fault for making his boyfriend act this way.

Eventually John realizes things aren't normal- whether it's because Sherlock asks a question that makes his situation clear or because Sherlock winds up in the hosptial due to the abuse, or something else happening. The boyfriend is kicked out, and Sherlock and John begin to get together, with John vowing to show him what a real relationship should be like.

TL;DR: Sherlock is dating someone and asks John for advice, but doesn't let on that he's being abused.

Re: Filled # 6: Adjustment (by tenderly_wicked and skadi_zlata)

Fill #24

Prompt: So we've had a lot of prompts about the calibre of badass you have to be to father someone like John - Chuck Norris, Jack Harkness, Tintin, Hannibal Lecter, etc...

But what about his mother?


Fill: #5

So, the first ACD story anon ever read was The Reigate Puzzle, and anon has had a major soft spot for it ever since. Even though it isn't generally regarded as one of the top ACD stories, it is anon's favourite.

Anon would love a BBC!Reigate fic. Plox.


Fill: #23

The last time Sherlock got plastered, he did his Alan Rickman impersonation and sang Candle in the Wind. People have been trying to get him to recreate his performance ever since. Sherlock would rather not have that happen again, he had the hangover from hell for the next day.
