John's lovely arse S/J

Sherlock has a strange fascination for the blond hair on John's peachy butt.

Basically this prompt is a shameless request for hair and butt appreciation porn fill.

Sherlock is Scrooge

John wants to have a christmas party. Sherlock doesnt. I want Sherlock to be a modern version of Scrooge. Christmas? Sentimental humbug!!

Maybe Sally, Mycroft and Lestrade or Moriarty as the three ghosts?

Re: Sherlock is Scrooge

RTYI. More focused on the three visitors than on whatever happens before Sherlock goes to bed than your prompt suggests, but it's really close.
Molly, Mrs. Hudson and Mycroft(maybe?) as the three ghosts.

John is a time/universe jumper who keeps on running into difficult situations every time he just wants a break.


The Slenderman wants John.

RTYI welcomed :>

Re: Slenderman+John

Seconded, and an RTYI!:

(there is never enough Slenderman in Sherlock)

"I suppose I deserve this..."

I have always wondered why John isn't more freaked out with all of the body parts Sherlock seems to bring home. I mean he barely bats an eyelid when Donovan finds the eyeballs in the microwave and he'd not quite moved in at that point.

So here's my thought. John as a resident doctor was a terror. He'd forever prank people and the one thing that amused him the most was to stick body parts he'd come across in the morgue into people's lockers and now he almost sees what Sherlock does as some sort of divine retribution for his past pranks.

Sherlock finds out about one particularly ingenious prank involving body parts that not only makes him laugh, but makes him secretly (or not so secretly) impressed with him.

Long story short.

John as a resident pulled pranks involving various body parts he found in the morgue. He now wonders if Sherlock's experiments are some sort of divine retribution for his past pranks.

Hi writers!

My grandmother died and even if it was the best for her I am now really in the need of some fluff.
Could someone write me something? Please! I beg you! *makes puppy eyes*

I'm not picky. Johncroft, Mystrade, Sherstrade, Johnlock... Everything is fine with me!

Please make me feel a little better.
(sry I'm a non native speaker. I hope you get what I want)

I'm really sorry about your grandmother, OP. I hope this will help a little... though I'm not sure it's fluffy enough.


Somehow it seems fitting that her grave is located in the same yard as Sherlock's once was. John stands a few feet away, watching as the rest of the people who attended the funeral slowly begin to file away now that a sobbing Clara’s been taken to a car. Lestrade stops and gives him a friendly clap on the shoulder, a silent note of apology that hangs in the air and buoys John's spirits in a way that little else has since he received the news. He covers Lestrade's hand with his own and then, by some unspoken signal, both men let their hands drop to their sides and Lestrade steps away to join Sally Donovan. She wasn't invited but John doesn't have the fight left in him to protest her presence, and anyway at least she hasn't made any fuss.

He walks over to the spot where the peaceful grass has been marred by upturned dirt, eyes lingering on the words etched deeply into the stone. HARRIET MARIE WATSON is what it reads in huge block letters, with the date just underneath. No one else had stepped forward to suggest something different, not even Clara, and John doesn't feel he knows – knew – his sister well enough to decide what else should go on the gravestone. It's simple and understated and Harry probably would have hated it, but then she'd hated pretty much everything John liked so that's no surprise.

The wind blows, scattering the flower petals, and a shadow falls over him and the grave.

He doesn't need to turn around to know who is standing behind him.

"The last time I was here I was visiting you," he says. "Don't suppose there's a chance that Harry's going to come back, is there?"

"No," Sherlock says quietly. Dressed in his normal black suit, he cuts an imposing figure amidst the peace. He'd stood at the back of the crowd during the funeral, eyes locked on John and Clara. Just knowing that he was there had given John the strength to hold it together.

"It's funny," he says, "even when you know it's coming that doesn't make it any easier. I told Harry for years that she would end up with liver damage if she kept pushing her luck but would she listen to me? No, of course not. I was just her annoying brother. God." He clenches a hand into a fist, fighting back a useless bout of rage. Honestly, he thought he'd moved past this, this anger with the world when someone dies too soon. But he's discovering that there is really no end to that helpless fury.

"John." Sherlock looks uncertain. He's not good at this. "She is... not in pain anymore."

Surprisingly the words, paltry though they may be, do help. John's a doctor and the day he'd heard the diagnosis he'd known that Harry's fate was sealed. He hadn't cried then but about a week later, after a case in which a child had been the victim, he'd broken down and wept for hours, and Sherlock had been there, pulling John down into his lap and holding him until John sank into an exhausted sleep. John tries to imagine how he would gone through this, the death of the last member of his family, without Sherlock and can't. He might not have liked Harry but that doesn't mean she wasn't his sister. There's a connection there - there was a connection there that nothing but death can break. The grim thought makes him shudder and Sherlock reaches out, gripping John's shoulder, bracing him against all of the pain in the world.

"Thank you," John says very quietly, turning to look at him.

"I haven't done much."

"I know you asked Mycroft to help."

Mpreg with a twist

Just listened to Savage Love Podcast 315 where Dan talks about saline balls. It wasn't that, however, that intrigued me; it was something else that he said. The summary of which is Dan's bio teacher once told him that if an embryo was somehow implanted in a man's scrotum it would be possible for a man to carry it to term because of the high blood flow to that area and the incredible expandability of a man's scrotum.

So could I get an Johnlock m-preg story where either John or Sherlock carries a baby to term in his balls? Maybe it's a spin on the Omega!verse. Maybe there's some MadScientist!Sherlock going on. Does the pregnant party stay active or are they bedridden immediately? All that's up to the author, but I'm really pumped to see what someone comes up with.

Re: Mpreg with a twist

Ok, definitely saying I can't fill this. Just no time. Well, maybe when finals are over... Crap! Why do I have plot bunnies running around in my head?! I'm totally seeing this as a dark fic with abducted character mpreg and held captive for duration. Maybe John, with Sherlock and Lestrade and Mycroft on the hunt.

Sherlock/Molly Knotting

All I want, dear writers, is a filthy PWP of Sherlock knotting Molly, and descriptions of how much cum he's pumping into her. That is all.

Re: Sherlock/Molly Knotting

Unf, yes.

God yes.

Lestrade is sick and Sherlock cares for him in his own Sherlock-y way. I'd like Sherlock/Lestrade, but I'll take gen too.

Re: Sick!Lestrade

Always seconding "Sherlock looks out for Lestrade" prompts!

Adding a link to this fanart in case you or others don't know it:

This is brilliant so far, very intriguing! But small britpick:- It's trolley, not gurney.

It's a Terrible Life

So it's the Christmas season, but nah, I don't want fluffy holiday fun. Sherlock is visited by a demon who tries to convince him everyone's life would have been better if he'd never been born.

Jeez, that's rather grim, isn't it? Sorry. Does it help that I want a happy ending?

Re: It's a Terrible Life

I am soooo sick of It's a Wonderful Life that this would be a welcome antidote! Please!!!!

Trigger Warning for Rape and Torture

Joha and Sherlock are helping Lestrade catch a serial killer who rapes and tortures his victims before letting them bleed to death. After the third victim is discovered, Sherlock and John head out alone to investigate some leads. Five hours later, Lestrade gets a text from Sherlock informing him of new crime scene. He takes Sally and rushes to the location. Upon entering the dark building, he sees that there is a body on the floor, and Sherlock is standing in a corner looking a bit pale. He starts by saying that the body is their killer, and that he killed him. Then he begins to deduce the room, talking about the victim and describing what happened, that the victim had been lucky enough to break a thumb and slip one of the cuffs before the fatal blow had been delivered. He informs them that John is upstairs, and Lestrade assumes he is with the victim. He tells Sherlock he's going to have to bring him in, since he killed the guy, and leaves Sally to handle that part while he goes upstairs to find John. Sally, with vicious glee, goes to handcuff Sherlock. When she pulls up his coat sleeve to put the cuffs on, another set of cuffs falls out of his sleeve, both closed, me still attached to his incredibly torn up wrist.

Cue Sally freaking out, Sherlock in massive amounts of shock, and Lestrade finding an incredibly pissed off John tied up in a closet upstairs, frantically trying to get free cause he's spent the last two hours listening to Sherlock scream.

Tl;dr Sherlock and John run afoul of a rape torture murder, Sherlock gets raped and tortured, and the Yard misinterprets the scene.

Sherlock being sick, and vice versa

Five times (or three, or four, I'm not fussy) that John looked after Sherlock (pushed back his hair, rubbed his back and so on) when he was throwing up, and one time that Sherlock did the same for John.

Bonus points if Sherlock taking care of John happens after the hiatus

Working on a fill! (Anonymous) Expand
Re: Working on a fill! (Anonymous) Expand
I want to see reactions -- the Yarders', John's, Sherlock's own -- when Sherlock physically collapses at a crime scene from lack of food and sleep. Who instantly realizes that he's not using? Who has to be convinced of it? Who never is, quite?

(Bonus if Sherlock's own reaction on coming to is on the order of "Oh, fuck, I fell on the body and contaminated all the evidence".)

Re: On the floor

Everything about this is perfect and you are perfect.

Err, seconded.

Non-Holmes incest

So its usually the Holmes brothers with the incest and then John (or someone) finds out and either joins them or doesn't. And I love those fics :)

BUT I thought for a bit on what would happen if it was the other way around. One of the Holmes brothers (preferable Sherlock because it usually starts with him in a lot of fics) finds out someone they know is dating/having sex with their sibling. What happens next? Feel free to have non-canon incest (like maybe Anthea and Lestrade are secretly siblings? Molly and Anderson?...That could explain one reason Sherlock is so hated by him.Or whoever else).

Bonus that will make me love you forever:
Harry and John have been in an on and off relationship for years. They have been able to stay together (consensually) throughout their life because they have often felt they were the only ones who truly understood one another. Despite their strained relationship they decide to meet up...

More then alittle cracked

Sherlock and John meet too late. By the time they find each other their more then just a little cracked.

But then again in any universe they are always going to need each other. Regardless of what side their on.

John is way more bitter . Sherlock is a bit insane and machine like...but he is also way more lonely and touch starved.

Just because I want some Moran/John. Warning:non-con

Moran has been such a good worker that Moriarty decides to present him a gift for all of his hard work.

Moriarty knows that Moran has an unhealthy obsession with a certain army doctor and so he kidnaps John Watson, drugs and places him naked on a bed. John also has a pretty ribbon tied to his neck that has a card attached which says something along the line of 'Moran, the best employee of the year. Enjoy your award. xxxJM'

Bonus: Moran takes his time worshiping John's body before entering him slowly.

2x Bonus: Moriarty in the room camcording the whole thing.

Re: Just because I want some Moran/John. Warning:non-con

Oh, OH! YES!

Seconding! Please, please, please! Someone fill this!

A Very Rare Crossover Pair

Rafi/Sherlock - Sherlock has to go to (or hide out in) Winnetka, Illinois and there he encounters Rafi who treats him to an intense weekend.

Rafi is from FX's The League ( This is a fairly comprehensive source of all things Rafi. (

The rarepair was inspired by this picture. (

Someone please make this happen. If not for the crack, then do it because Rafi would have the best ( rebuttals ( to Sherlock.

Minifill: This feeling, so appealing

[Inspired by the prompt, but does not fulfill the prompt.]

John came home to Sherlock lying on the sofa, scowling at a fruit basket on the coffee table.

"Is that a fruit basket?" he said, starting to unpack the groceries.


Sherlock sometimes refused to answer implied questions when he was annoyed, but John didn't think he had done anything to offend Sherlock today.

He was carefully moving things aside in the refrigerator, trying to make room for eggs and butter without touching or spilling anything gross, when he heard a mobile go off behind him.

Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring.

Not a ring tone he recognized.

Ring. Ring. Ring..., the mobile started again.

John's hands were occupied with a wet bottle, and it nearly slipped from him, the shrill ringing making him tense up. He turned to glare at Sherlock.

"Oh, for God's sake!" Sherlock snarled, as if it were somehow John being unreasonable. He picked up a banana from the fruit basket, and held it to his ear.


A tinny mumble emerged from the banana, but apparently Sherlock could hear it perfectly:

"No, I don't want to get together and sing. You are most certainly not a friend of mine. Stop ringing me!"

He slammed the banana down, squishing a plum, and causing a pear to tumble down and under a chair.

Ding, dong. Ding, dong. Ding, dong. The banana started ringing again.

Sherlock groaned, and pulled at his hair theatrically.

"John, please. Make it stop. He's been ringing me constantly, for hours."

"All right, you big baby. You finish putting away these groceries, and I'll deal with the fruit basket. And make me a cup of tea."

John ended up sharing the fruit with Mrs Hudson. He let her keep the banana phone as well, when he realized he had no one he wanted to talk to, other than her and Sherlock.

It kept for nearly a week in her crisper drawer, before she had to throw it out, but she had grown a bit tired of that Raffi fellow who kept ringing, even though he was ever so nice, so that was no great shame.

Sherlock never made John a cup of tea, but he did refrigerate all the perishables John had bought, and picked up the pear.

Omegaverse, post-Reichenbach: while in hiding Sherlock finds himself pregnant...

Specifically I want something that focuses on that moment of horror when Sherlock realises/confirms his pregnancy. Knowing that he can't realistically keep the child in his situation and all the complications that getting rid of it would include - a dead man can't very well walk into a hospital, and any back-alley clinics might end up costing him his own life. (As an extra plot suggestion, he's in some part of the world where omegas don't yet have full rights and abortion isn't legal at all.)

And as if all that shit wasn't enough, there's this small part of Sherlock that's grieving to extinguish that single, tiny bit of John that he has in his solitude.

Sherlock and John are mated, but no one except a few know about it. John is in Afghanistan and Sherlock is in London solving cases. During a case, John comes home, so Sherlock goes to the airport to meet him.


They are separated for an extended period of time due to a case/family issue/whatever the author would like. Cue hot simultaneous masturbation sessions over long distance video chat.

Re: Sherlock/John

Unf, yes please!

The Gay Test

Sherlock sends this ( to John's email. Sherlock finds it hilarious while John, not so much. They have a stupid argument but shortly after John gets over it and they both laugh. Fluffy fluff ensues.

I like this idea very much.

Sherlock/Lestrade - pre-established relationship

From whichever traumatic circumstances the author wishes, Sherlock develops PTSD and nocturnal enuresis. Which he tries really hard to hide from Lestrade, but it doesn't work for long and Lestrade finds out eventually.

No watersports.

Re: Sherlock/Lestrade - pre-established relationship

Let me embrace you and your prompt. Hum. Seconded!

tw rape

Whenever Sherlock is injured while solving a case, John patches him up. The few times that he's been dragged to the hospital against his will, he still hasn't let anyone touch him except John, or without John overseeing their work. After all, John is his doctor, and Sherlock thinks that means he should be his ONLY doctor.

John usually doesn't mind, just happy that Sherlock is letting SOMEONE patch him up - although he has been known to roll his eyes when Sherlock pitches a fit and refuses to let anyone but John treat him in a hospital or public place.

One time, though, Sherlock is MIA for a few hours or a few days.... something. When he walks back into 221B - with John all ready to yell at him for just disappearing - he has a bruise on his face and is walking as if his ribs are broken. John gets ready to treat his injuries, like normal, but Sherlock jerks away from his touch. He won't let John touch him and demands another doctor, even if he has to go to the hospital for it.

Why? Sherlock was just gang-raped and abused and he's in shock. All he can think about is that he doesn't want John to see what they did to him.

(Either gen or Sherlock/John, please -- but lots of hurt/comfort!)

sherlock/john, pre-canon AU, tw for suicide

This is based on the novel "I Have The Right To Destroy Myself".

There's a man who advertises telephone therapy appointments in the newspaper, but what he really does is get close to vulnerable people and manipulates them into deciding to kill themselves, and then he helps them set up the suicide scenario however they want. In the novel, this person (who is never given a name) views it as compassion.

Sherlock somehow connects a recent string of suicides with the mysterious advertisement in the paper. The man is very, very good at eluding Sherlock, so Sherlock begins to monitor the man's telephone line, and the man's latest "client" is one John Watson. Sherlock doesn't want to lose his prey, so he doesn't warn John off, but instead becomes drawn into their interactions and eventually John sets a date for his suicide. Sherlock races off to intervene; author can choose how the intervention happens.

Re: sherlock/john, pre-canon AU, tw for suicide

This is good. Seconded.
