Unrequited John/Sherlock (from asexual!Sherlock's POV)

Sherlock knows that John has fallen in love with him but there is no way they are going to end up in a sexual relationship.

He tries his best to make John more comfortable in this awkward situation. At first he reduces all physical contact between them to a minimum to not make it any harder for John. This only seems to make John more sad so Sherlock offers more touches and cuddles on a platonic level.

They settle for some sort of limbo where John is allowed to cuddle Sherlock, kiss him on the cheek or forehead and occasionally sleep in Sherlock's bed and receives the same treatment from Sherlock but they both know it will never be more than that.

Bonus point if: Someone tells John to move out because this is not healthy for him.

Double bonus if: Sherlock overhears this conversation.

The Sherlock POV is optional, but it would make it interesting.

Re: Unrequited John/Sherlock (from asexual!Sherlock's POV)

Would love to see this ( maybe a failed attempt at a sexual relationship that goes back to a friendship or good Sexual/asexual compromises?). This is a big deal for me as it hits me on a rather personal level.

Reprompt: Sherlock and John separated by a deadly illness

Sherlock (or John) is exposed to a deadly virus and needs to be put into quarantine/isolation. The isolation ward is basically a room with clear glass walls.
Sherlock and John can only talk/be with each other with the glass in between them, cue angst.
They're separated for ages with the one in isolation slowly getting sicker.
Whoever is on the outside fakes the virus symptoms so that they can get back in to be with the other, despite the risk that they may catch the virus.
Where it goes from there is up to the author, although a happy ending would be great :)

John/Sherlock, established or first time.

Re: Reprompt: Sherlock and John separated by a deadly illness


Modified reprompt

When we first see Sebastian, he says:

Sebastian: We were at Uni together, this guy had a trick he used to do.
Sherlock: It’s not a trick.
Sebastian: He could look at you and tell you your whole life story.
John: Yes, I’ve seen him do it.
Sebastian: Put the wind up everybody, we hated him. He’d come down to have breakfast in the formal hall and this freak would know you’d been shagging the previous night.
Sherlock: I simply observed.

Oh, Sherlock. Can you imagine how his university days were like? It was probably so obvious to him, he couldn't fathom why anyone else would make a big deal.

Here's my prompt:

People decide to teach Sherlock a lesson. But what should have been a simple roughing up is taken too far and becomes a gang rape. Make it dark, make it hurt. I want more than just the incident, but also the consequences. Sometime after TBB, it all comes out for some reason.

Involve the banker Sebastian Wikes - he's clearly one who thought Sherlock a freak - what role does he play? Involve Victor Trevor - from ACD!canon "The Gloria Scott", he was Sherlock's only friend in his years at college - what role does he play? Maybe have Reginald Musgrave (The Musgrave Ritual) too if you wish. How does Sherlock deal with it? How does Mycroft react? John?

Re: Modified reprompt

Seconded, like whoa. I could easily see that happening in Sherlock's past in that type of situation.

Reprompt: John writes novels

John writes crime novels under a pseudonym.

Sherlock finds out and accuses John of secretly writing about them. John admits he may have used their cases for inspiration but denies the characters are them.

After all the dashingly handsome vastly intelligent Samuel Hawks is only a private detective, not a consulting one.
And while his assistant the brave, gun wielding Jamie Woolten was an ex-army doctor she was most definitely female.

As more of his stories are published, staying top on the best seller books, a firm favourite of all their friends (half of Scotland Yard are writing fanfiction where Samuel and Jamie get together) intrigue about them is rife.
People want to know who is really writing them, who are they based on, and when are Samuel and Jamie going to finally admit their feelings for each other?

Sherlock is still convinced the characters are him and John but he's not entirely sure what it all means...

Re: Reprompt: John writes novels

Yes! Want! :D
Seconding this fiercely.

Reprompt: Warnings for dub-con.


Someone has something Sherlock wants. A clue needed to solve a case, or a killer's motivations, or something else entirely -- just something that they're not willing to give, and Sherlock is willing to do a helluva a lot to get.


Whoever it is has made their attraction to Sherlock pretty clear, and when they offer what they have in exchange for what Sherlock has, Sherlock's willing to trade.


It's just that somewhere between getting his hands tied and things getting a lot rougher than he anticipated, or maybe somewhere around the time he found himself saying "no," Sherlock begins to realize maybe the cost was a whole lot higher than he had expected. And afterwards, when he's feeling sick and angry and self-loathing and, mostly, confused -- well. He's not sure it was worth it at all.


Sherlock's got no idea. Maybe John can help. Friendship or Slash is fine.

(but no healing cocks, por favor)

tl;dr -- Sherlock/Other dub-con; subsequent John/Sherlock h/c.

Re: Reprompt: Warnings for dub-con.

Liking this...seconded!

Warning: non-con

Before John, Sherlock's first and only friend was Victor Trevor. He was the first person who liked to spend time with Sherlock, listened to him, didn't call him names... it was only natural that Sherlock fell in love with him. One day Sherlock gathered up his courage to tell him/make a move. But Victor didn't take it well at all and stormed off in disgust. When Sherlock later approached him to apologize, Victor raped him (or had him gang-raped).

Years later, Sherlock realizes he's developing feelings for John Watson. And he's afraid. Of course he knows John is different, he's a good person and Sherlock trusts him. Only, he had trusted Victor too...

Re: Warning: non-con

This prompt literally gave me a fluttering feeling in my chest when I read the last paragraph. WANT.

After thirty eight years and Afghanistan, John Watson is tired of denying it. She's a woman, and she's damn well going to admit it.

Two weeks after starting on estrogen therapy, she meets a potential flatmate...

Re: MtF!John

Yes please yes! I was just planning to prompt this!

Accidental Sex

Craaaack. I'm unable to even

Okay, so, Sherlock and John have accidental sex. Literally.
"Oh dear, John, it appears you've fallen on my penis."
"Why yes Sherlock, it certainly does. Whatever will we do about this situation?"
"Oops, now I have an erection."
"Jolly good, me too!"

And then porn and stuff. :3

Teacher/Student affair.TW:POSIBBLE NON-CON/DUBCON and under age sex (both up to the filler)

Mycroft Holmes is a brilliant boy,who gets excellent grades and all the teachers adore.Not the mention,his parents make generous donations to the school (Or university,if you are more confortable with it).
A new proffesor comes (I´d prefer John,but if you want to make it Lestrade I´m fine with it) and Mycroft is attracted to him.
So,he tries to seduce him.When rejected,he blackmails them into entering a sexual relationship with him.
While at first they are disgusted,they eventually start to enjoy it.

Escort AU

So, I just saw "The Wedding Date." It's an okay movie, but for whatever reason it made me think of Sherlock.

So: John is a male escort who up until now has mostly catered to women - taking them to weddings, work events, whatever. Sherlock is Sherlock. You can decide why he needs a fake boyfriend - either to show off to his coworkers, or his family. John does an anonymous interview for a magazine, Sherlock uses deduction skills to track him down and pays for a weekend of escort services. Romantic comedy shenanigans ensue.

Re: Escort AU

Love this idea! I wish I had time to try my hand at it. Seconded!

Crack Dialogue Prompt

Immediately following Mycroft's first visit to Scotland Yard

DONOVAN: ...Sir, no!
LESTRADE: Our babies will be smart and beautiful.

Psychopath!BAMF!John/Sniper Sebastian

Sniper!Sebastian meeting Psychopath!BAMF!John in Supermax prison. When Sebastian first being in, he was warned never to get near John H. Watson. And he simply do not understand what is wrong about this handsome, harmless looking man.
It can be as dark/violent as you like. But Sherlock Holmes will not be mentioned.

Re: Psychopath!BAMF!John/Sniper Sebastian

Seconded! This sounds super interesting. Apart from Moran and John being BAMFs, this is the first story I've read where Sherlock won't even be mentioned passingly. Innnteressting :D

John's Terranen. Sherlock's Comyn, of course, maybe even one of the Hasturs of Hastur (although God knows he's enough like Dyan Ardais to be related to him). And he's learned to deduce everything he can about people, and carefully trained himself to alienate everyone he meets ... because has no TRACE of laran. None.

Mycroft/Brotherlock Angst

"Mummy and Pater, do you think they'd be proud of us, the men we've become?"

"...They'd be proud of you."

Re: Mycroft/Brotherlock Angst

Yes, please.

Mystrade crack/fluff

LESTRADE: Younger me would be incredibly proud

MYCROFT: I'm sorry?

LESTRADE: I just 'fucked the government'

Re: Mystrade crack/fluff

Pahahaha! +100

Fic: For the Record (Anonymous) Expand
Re: Fic: For the Record (Anonymous) Expand
The reason Sherlock prefers to text rather than talk is because Sherlock gets bored talking on the phone, and has a habit of putting it down and start doing something else mid-conversation. Sometimes he comes back, but most of the time the person on the other end is left hanging.

(Totally not based on a friend of mine who does this all the time or anything... >>)

For my birthday- sex practice for a case

No I don't want fucking cake for my birthday (I already read Fucking Cake and it was fantastic!).
I want Sherlock to take on a case where he needs to have sex to get info ( escort ring, prostitution, suspect who frequents bars- whatever) and he's very upset his virginity is going to get in the way and blow his cover. Cue Sherlock angry with self that this could jeopardize his work, and his wanting John to help him practice sexual technique, gag reflex, etc..
Bonus for John being hesitant to help, as he is a doctor and the activities might not be safe.

Crack: Everybody is on tumblr

Purley crack but John's website made me think what it would be like if everybody was on tumblr. Show me who they are following, Sherlock's devious plans to get more followers than John, Molly posting nothing but cat gifs, Lestrade's dashbord being manipulated by Mycroft so it's nothing but English History facts and suits, Moriarty leaving creepy anon asks. Basically just something funny and not very serious.


Reader is Mrs.Hudson's granddaughter/niece and encounters John and sherlock making out. Finding this incredibly hot she sticks around until they eventually catch her and decide to include her in their games.

+5 if handcuffs are used on reader
+20 if Sherlock uses that jaguar-in-a-cello voice on her
+50 if Double penetration is involved

Alternate Universe-Actor(Obsessive!Sherlock/BAMF!John)

John starts filming since he was a child, and he was born natural. Although he got a terrible family, with a junkie dad and a mentally ill mom.
Sherlock is a nightmare to his family, they just don't know what to do with him. They had quite a shock when Sherlock announced to be one top actor.

please bring out the snappy, snarky edge of John, and of course his well of deadpan sarcasm.
and Sherlock is arrogant, calculating, manipulative as always.

Re: Alternate Universe-Actor(Obsessive!Sherlock/BAMF!John)

This is RTYI. It doesn't have the backstory that you requested, but both John and Sherlock are top actors and are written extremely well in character.

Warnings for Non Con/Dub Con Star Trek AU

Its been a long time since I prompted anything, but I just had to prompt this when I heard that Benedict Cumberbatch was rumoured to play Kahn in the new Star Trek!

Sherlock as the villain attempting to take over the ship that John Watson is serving on as a doctor. Sherlock takes John hostage. Sex ensues.

Basically, anything like this would be great, but if you wanted to maybe make Sherlock a romulan or a Vulcan in pon far etc that would be great too, I just want Star Trek and Sherlock BBC together :)

Re: Warnings for Non Con/Dub Con Star Trek AU


Teen!lock John self-abuses, Sherlock tries to help him stop

Teen!John's home-life is a wreck and he cuts himself to cope, has done for years. One night Sherlock comes over and realizes somehow what is happening and takes care of John.

Bonus points for really protective!Sherlock

Blind!Lestrade, S/L (gen or slash) or S/L/J

Lestrade is slowly going blind and trying to hide it as long as he can do so without hampering his job and his team's careers. Sherlock deduces the truth.

What happens next and how serious Lestrade's condition entirely up to author. Can be gen or father-son relationship or slash or even a threesome involving doctor!John if you like, but I'd really like the focus (oh dear) to be on blind!Lestrade's dilemma and Sherlock's reaction to it.

"Open Season" on Lestrade = possible whumpage, violence, H/C

Lestrade's made a lot of enemies in his time. Criminal enemies. After Sherlock's fall, the sensationalist media plays up Lestrade's disgrace and suspension from his position (along with plenty of photos), and some of those enemies realise that Lestrade is now a man alone, without the Yarders behind him, without so much as a baton for self-defence. In fact, it actually would solve some of the problems faced by the Met's senior leadership if Lestrade just... disappeared.

I'd like to see who (if anyone) realises how vulnerable Lestrade is and tries to watch out for him, before it's too late.

Whumpage, violence, and darkfic don't scare me. ;)

Re: "Open Season" on Lestrade = possible whumpage, violence, H/C

Mmmmh, seconded! (I love whumped!Lestrade and h/c.)

Crack prompt - Seb and Jim seeking each other in the Afterlife

(I mentioned this on the Rant Meme some time ago and it's been haunting me since.)

Three years after Moriarty's suicide, Moran is dispatched into afterlife, courtesy of Sherlock Holmes.

Sadly, he and Jim can no longer share headquarters. Either Moran once did a good deed that saved him from eternal damnation, or Moriarty found an unexpected champion among the saints and martyrs and ended up in Purgatory or even Heaven, where he's being bored to death.

But you can't keep true lovers apart, Lord no. Even if it takes blowing up the whole sodding Afterworld and blackmailing Saint Peter into yielding up his all-opening key.

Bonus if you can involve the other dead people from the show, ie the Cabbie, General Shan, Carl Powers or the Boy from Belarus.
