Sherlock BBC Prompting Meme

"we get all sorts around here."



We had a four day prompt freeze this time because the mods needed to discuss some very important issues regarding the meme. There has been an air of unfriendliness and disrespect widespread on our meme for months now and it doesn’t promote an atmosphere of community.

So, the mods have come up with a few new standards.


1. Be nice to each other, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. This is called the Bambi Rule and we are at the stage that we have to adopt it. Only give unless someone negative comments if someone asked for concrit, and even then there's a way to say it. “You suck” is not constructive criticism, neither is “your userpic is ugly” or “go back to tumblr.”

2. There's a real human being behind every anon user. It's easy to forget it while on the Internet, but words can hurt. You never know what kind of life situation a person is going through and it’s not on to put someone down for no reason. Additionally, not every opinion/thought needs to be posted. The meme is not an outlet for every thought that pops into our heads.

3. There are trolls browsing the meme. Don’t give them any of the attention they crave. However, not everyone is a troll, and just because someone interpreted a prompt differently or has a difference of opinion doesn't make them a troll, and insulting or accusing them rarely has a positive outcome.

4. People who wish to post anon should be allowed to do so without the threat of being "outed". If you think you recognise someone, keep it to yourself.

5. There will be no new Rant Posts after the current one closes. The Rant Post has become a terrifying place where people are being cruel, disrespectful, intolerant and petty. After that one reaches 10,000, it’s gone for good. There are plenty of other places on the internet where you can anonymously vent your frustrations with the world without consequences.


If the first four rules here are disregarded, comments will be frozen/deleted at moderators’ discretion. Continue to send us notifications in the Page-a-Mod post.


The Chatter Post will remain. You can discuss things there all you like, but the first four rules here apply to the entire meme. No ranting or hate should be anywhere.

It’s not fun for anyone to be scared of posting prompts or fills or comments. Let’s work as a community and get back to what the meme was started for: love and fans of the Sherlock BBC show.

I'm sad to see the rant post go because it was the one place where I got very useful advice for some rl problems and struggles, but I guess the chatter post will do if you mods are alright with it? I mean, Chatter is the place to talk about anything and everything, but I guess it could also be a place where one could seek for advice? One of the useful things the rant post did was being a place where somebody could talk about a problem they were having and get some concrete advice, could we use the chatter post for that? Please?

TW: Noncon, harassment and possble underage

(Anonymous)
The reason why Sherlock hates Mycroft so much is because of Mycroft let a collegue sexually abuse him (Sherlock) so that Mycroft would get a higher position in the government.
Sherlock is between 16-18 years old.

Will John find out and what will he do? Will Mycroft be forgiven? The filler decides.

Sherlock's knees are less than a thing of beauty

(Anonymous)
I would like to see Sherlock in Bermuda shorts, ideally actually in Bermuda, perhaps solving crime? Unfortunately, Sherlock's knees are a bit knobbly to pull them off properly, and it's too warm for the coat.

(John, of course, looks delectable in his, and if Mycroft were there, he'd also be properly attired (http://www.bermuda-online.org/BermudaShorts01.png).)

Romantic non-sexual love-making

I love fics about an asexual Sherlock and a heterosexual John who are a couple.

I would like to read about them making love in an intimate and physical way, no less intense and satisfying because they aren't feeling sexual attraction for each other.

It doesn't matter if it's snuggling, bathing together, massages, kink or whatever you would like to write.

Empty House (TW: Attempted suicide)

(Anonymous)
Sherlock returns from his "death". During his time away, he believed that John would either move on and live a comfortable life or, find out that he was faking his death but keep it a secret while patiently awaiting his return.

John has lived with overwhelming guilt. Refusing help from anyone, he is living hand to mouth and is in terrible health. Sherlock has not been informed of this by Mycroft and designs an elaborate way to surprise John with his return.

Upon seeing Sherlock, John believes he is-again-being tormented by a hallucination. John has had enough he runs from Sherlock, grabs his gun and shoots himself in the head. John misses but is gravely injured.

During John's months long recovery-which Sherlock helps with-both John and Sherlock work through their anger and guilt which leads to them finally discovering how much they love each other.

Baskerville Req: Corporal Lyons

Seconded.

Criminal Minds/Sherlock crossover

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson (and DI Lestrade representing the Yard- formalities) are needed in a case in the United States where they meet Doctor Spencer Reid and the Behavioral Analysis Unit (Hotch, Morgan, Rossi, Garcia, JJ, Prentiss).

Spencer and Sherlock have some massive intellectual fights (which most of the others do not understand).

Bonuses:
Instant spark and chemistry between characters.
John hitting on the girls which leads to jealous!Sherlock and sulking.

As each hour/day goes by Jim keeps on picturing that different bad things are going to happen to Pregnant Omega!Sebastian, who is at home because Jim is not there.

Bonus: Mycroft knows that Jim is bonded and tries to use it to his advantage (he tells Jim that he‘s find Sebastian or tells him that knows where Sebastian is).

And maybe Sherlock takes him to dinner.

And maybe John goes shopping and the ladies on the store take one look at him in his cuddly jumpers looking to by some fancy clothes and they tell him that he needs to find a different shop.

I don’t care how you do it....just Pretty Woman AU please.

John is Sherlock's internet boyfriend

(Anonymous)
I can't get enough of this trope.

Optional twist: Sherlock is addicted to mailing John from his phone and getting attention and admiration any time of the day or night. He's in love, and from what others have told him believes he is in a conventional "internet boyfriends" relationship.

John is saving up money after being invalided out of the army by spending a year as a GP in an isolated, low-population area. He doesn't know if "SH" is male or female, if he's sincerely interested in the weird topics he brings up or he's a very dedicated internet troll, but replying to him staves off boredom somewhat, and it's a bit like having an advanced tamagochi.

Trigger Warning: Character Death

(Anonymous)
"Is he going to be okay?"
"I doubt he'll ever be okay. John Watson was just pronounced dead."

Trigger Warning - Character Death, Sucidial Talk, and Probably Others

(Anonymous)
(Based off a really weird dream I had..)

After faking his death Sherlock decides not to come back.

Somehow, Mycroft and John find out that Sherlock is alive, but he refuses to come back (maybe they don't know that the other one knows and keeps quiet about the "secret" they're keeping from one another). Mycroft tries everything, but knows that he can't make Sherlock come back. Meanwhile, John blames himself for making Sherlock "die" to protect him and Mycroft for selling out his brother.

Over time, Mycroft and John become closer and consider each other friends (in Mycroft's mind, he thinks John has become like another brother to him). John is still kind of snarky and angry with him at times, but he cares for Mycroft and shows it in little way.

Until one night when Mycroft and John are out having some fun together and each had a little too much to drink. Mycroft is killed and John is completely broken up. He refuses to talk to anyone.

At Mycroft's funeral, he sees Mycroft's urn and steals it. Everyone thinks that John has run off and might try to kill himself. The truth, however, is tha John went to scatter Mycroft's ashes.

Sherlock learns about his brother's death and that John has disappeared, and decides that it is time to come home to John.

**Note: If you decided to fill, tou don't have to include everything in the prompt. This was just my dream and I'd like to see something along the lines of it.

Fill: Sometimes I wish it wasn't always my fault (1/?)

(Anonymous)
AN: I hope you get a better fill than this OP. This is just something I was thinking about, but it's not coming out right.

It was all John’s fault.

They had already had too much to drink during dinner. He shouldn’t have stolen the bottle from the restaurant —he always had the itch to steal nowadays —and presented it proudly to Mycroft.

Mycroft had looked at the bottle indifferently, but had reached out to take it anyways. Then, shaking the contents of it from side to side, testing how much is in the bottle and smiled.

They split it, taking swigs from it as they laughed and talked.

A cheap bottle of champagne to get them drunk, but never drunk enough.

Prompt from 'A Softer World' webcomic

Re: Prompt from 'A Softer World' webcomic

Seconded.

A sitcomish kind of trope, really...

Molly has to move from her flat due to the landlord being sick of the attention she's getting from the media post-Jim from IT and post-Sherlock's fall, then post-Sherlock's return. It's driving the landlord mad, having reporters camped out on the steps or trying to get in at all hours, badgering the other residents, etc. So Molly moves and ends up living next door to/below/above/across from Lestrade, who is in the death throes of a divorce from his soon to be ex wife. I'd like to see them each going through Sherlock's return separately, then realizing they can commiserate with one another, and it becoming something more romantic. Happy ending preferred, and if Lestrade has kids, I'd like to see how they take Molly being in their dad's life.

Drunk women have 50% more testosterone coursing about their blood.


I thought it could inspire something with Harry, but this is an open prompt. Whatever strikes you.

I'm new around here and I don't know if this has been done or not (still skimming over the other parts) but I propose a fic like this:
A couple and their son have an car accident. They all are hushed to the hospital, the father dies just as they arrive the hospital and Doctor Watson tries to save the mother without success. Only the child (boy - girl can be fine too) is left alive.

The boy apparently has no other family and until matters with the Child Protective Services are resolved he has no where to stay (idk how this stuff works so bare with me). Feeling guilty because the surgery on the boy's mother didn't go well, Doctor Watson insists they boy should stay with him for the time being.

John brings the boy home and Sherlock's not pleased at all. They only have two bedrooms and because of that John has to sleep with Sherlock so the boy can have the other bed.

Bonus point if the boy is snarky - because he's grieving his parents deaths - specially towards Sherlock (since he's insensitive towards this). Also more bonus points if the boy points out how gay they are for sleeping on the same bed and other gay remarks.



tl;dr just make John guilt trip into something and make him have to take care of a child for a certain time. Sherlock doesn't like but eventually they both get pulled in a parents' role or something. The child is snarky specially against Sherlock but feels some affection towards John since he's taking care well of him/her, wtvr.

op here, slash is very welcomed (sherlock topping preferred)

Sherlock is the newly discovered Dovahkiin, who has just been appointed as Thane of [Whiterun? I guess]. John or Lestrade is his very reluctant housecarl.

Because I am convinced that housecarl is just another name for "glorified babysitter."

Windhelm might be better I think-- that's the one with the deranged murderer case to solve isn't it? Though whether this is before or after the Civil War is up to filler I guess?

Something that involves Sherlock and Rorschach in the same room together and then they fight crime is really all I need in life to make me happy.

...OR a full-on Watchmen crossover/fusion but I will take what I can get! :D

THIS SO MUCH!!! Sherlock and Rorschach think "Possible homosexual, must investigate further." at the same moment about each other and then John comes home and thinks some of Sherlocks' experiments must have gone off but it's just Rorschachs odour and John wants to invite Rorschach for dinner but No, thanks he just want some beans and Sherlock thinks Finally someone you doesn't like digestion neither and they eat some sugar cubes (Sherlock with coffee, Rorschach with...milk) and Mrs Hudson wants to clean Rorschachs mask and the just hmpfs and then they fight crime and kick butt and basically it just another typical Wednesday at Baker Street.


(BTW: I really, really want some Sherlock Holmes/Adrian Veidt!)
