Sherlock/John post a break-up

(Anonymous)
So I finally got around to watching the Elementary pilot tonight! I... didn't love it like I instantly did BBC Sherlock but I'll try watching another episode or two. There was however a part where Watson talked about Sherlock's past in London, and she deduced that he had connected to a woman. When he says that he cannot connect to people, she replies with this: "You can connect to people. It just frightens you."

On that premise, I would love a fic where Sherlock and John have broken up after a relationship because of [Insert reason here]. Someone (Lestrade/Harry/Mycroft?) talks to him about it and delivers this line. Cue Sherlock-centric introspection and him realizing that it's alright to be vulnerable, and he ends up apologizing (or something similar) to John.

Happy ending optional, but introspection and some form of resolution would be lovely.

Reprompt: Angelo/Sherlock food kink

Angelo domming the hell out of Sherlock, because he cares. Tying him up and feeding him could come into it.

S/L age difference angst

(Anonymous)
Sherlock and Lestrade first get together when Sherlock is in his early twenties and Lestrade is well into his thirties.

The age difference has never been a problem. Other people may mention it, but to them it had never seemed an issue.

One day, something triggers Sherlock into thinking that Lestrade misses the younger Sherlock.
Maybe he catches Lestrade innocently checking out a younger guy? Maybe a joke about Sherlock getting older is taken more seriously than it should have? etc

Whatever it is manages to convince him that Lestrade doesn't fancy him anymore because he only likes younger men and, inevitably, Sherlock has grown up.


Of course, this is all nonsense.

Awww. A nice reversal on the "Greg worries about their age difference" trope. Very much seconded!

A sort of foursome

(Anonymous)
Irene is pegging Sherlock and Sarah is pegging John, in the same bed. The couple who comes first wins!

Would not be opposed to "couple that comes last wins, too!

Tired of john canceling their dates for Sherlock, john's latest girlfriend decides to kill the worlds only consulting detective.
fortunately john comes home just in time.
or does he?

Short for what?

Harry Watson is a transwoman. John and Hal Watson were born identical twins.

Warnings: Mass murder on an unimagibale scale by Pandemic

(Anonymous)
Rather than the perpetual boredom of life as we know it driving him to suicide, Moriarty decides that if he can't get any entertainment from this world, he will just have to create new one.

But sometimes to create one must first destroy and i would absolutely love to see a fic detailing how different characters survive (or do not survive, your choice) the world wide Pandemic that ensues.

My preferred pairings are Johnlock and both consensual and non-consensual Molliarty, but I would be perfectly happy with a Gen fic. This prompt is more about the situation than anything.

Re: Warnings: Mass murder on an unimagibale scale by Pandemic

I will always second any prompt that looks as though it was cribbed from the Great International Disaster Book.

Mycroft/Lestrade, Object insertion

(Anonymous)
Mycroft discovers just how atrocious Lestrade's eating habits are. Determined not to lose his partner due to heart disease or scurvy, he begins preparing good, healthy meals for Lestrade at any opportunity. Of course he knows that Lestrade won't enjoy changing his habits so drastically without incentive, so he takes the time before every meal to explain in great detail all the wonderful things the vegetable of the night will do for Lestrade's body while also slowly fucking him with it. At first Lestrade is mortified, but eventually he finds himself craving more and more (phallic-shaped) vegetables.

Hunger Games fusion

John is a Victor. Sherlock is a Capitol citizen.

After the Mockingjay revolution (however long you like), they meet. Can they become friends (or more, if you like) despite the long, bitter history behind them?

We need some more Dimmock in here

(Anonymous)
Dimmock/Q (from Skyfall)

Make it happen.

Sherlock and John have a very satisfactory sex life. Unfortunately it's very difficult for them to actually sleep together. Sherlock is thin and sleeps cold: he wants a cozy room and thick fluffy duvet. John's athletic and sleeps warm, not to mention being a bit into the whole asceticism/self-denial thing: he is more than satisfied with two blankets, and wants the window at least partway open even in January.

How, if at all, do they overcome this difficulty?

(Crossover) Encyclopedia Brown

(Anonymous)
Sherlock holmes wanders into Idaville in America on his three years, and meets a child who matches him nose to nose with intelligence. And this child, Encyclopedia Brown, has stupid things like sentiment and a human heart.

He (probably) hates him.

tl;dr: I don't know, go crazy. Anything with the two meeting.

Omg yes. Seconded like heck!

Unrequited Love, AU

(Anonymous)
Sherlock is from an incredibly wealthy family and can afford to have anything and everything he wants, but he's perpetually bored. The men and women of the upper class are all idiots or worse, and all the money in the world isn't enough to keep him entertained.

He constantly complains about this state of affairs to his manservant/butler/valet John, who is steady, not boring, and marginally less idiotic than other people.

John, for his part, has been in love with Sherlock almost from day one. But he's resigned himself to never having anything with Sherlock because homosexuality is illegal and he's never shown the slightest interest in anyone (least of all John), to say nothing of the class differences.

He must content himself with taking care of Sherlock the very best that he can, even when his charge meets Irene Adler, who is seemingly perfect for him...

Happy ending encouraged, but not necessary. Would love if this was a historical AU, but it could be a modern AU. Oblivious-to-feelings!Sherlock and Stoic!John are strongly encouraged.

Johnlock + maybe John/M!Other, 5+1

(Anonymous)
Inspired by a fic I read earlier today on Tumblr...

5 times John invites Sherlock / expects Sherlock to be somewhere (a date, friends gatherings, some random ceremony, etc. not case related) but Sherlock doesn't show up (a case, thinks its boring, is ill/in hospital, IDK).
+1 John invites somebody else.
Or alternatively, +1 Sherlock comes uninvited.

- if AA decides to go with the first option:
I have a slight pereferance for Microft or Lestrade but I won't mind if you decides to write someone else as long as that person is male.
Bonus for Sherlock realizes at the end, but whether he regrets it or if is totally unaffected or if he's even glad John finds someone that will make him happy is entirely up to AA.

Eitherway, lots of angst and maybe some fluff at the end please <3


Don't think it's needed for this prompt... But squicks are blood/knif play, extreme dirty-talking, BDSM, spanking, character death, and Anything that goes into the toilet.

Re: Johnlock + maybe John/M!Other, 5+1

(Anonymous)
Seconded!

John and Sherlock finally get together. Everyone breathes a collective sigh of relief. Finally all this damned UST will stop and they'll calm the hell down!

Only not. Because John and Sherlock end up being one of those annoyingly volatile couples that have screaming breakups and gag-worthy makeups every other week. A bit of UST doesn't seem so bad now.

Mycroft says 'loyal ewantic'. I agree man, but they're still crazy.

S/J, L/J (unrequited)

(Anonymous)
I would love a fic revolving around a conversation that goes basically like this:
[Sherlock/John in an established relationship]
Lestrade: I don't want you on my crime scenes anymore. The sight of you, the sight of you both is... too much and I... I just don't want you there anymore.

Sherlock: You know the work is everything to me. What do you want? Do you want me to fill out more paperwork? Do you want me to stop insulting people on your team? I can't help you unless you tell me what you-

Lestrade: I want John, alright? Are you happy now? I want John.

Sherlock: Take him then. Take him and give me back my work.

Yeah, it's a little dramatic but a kink is a kink right? A fic around this conversation and its aftermath would be lovely! I cant imagine John being happy about Sherlock's declaration.

Fill: The Hard Way (Part 1/2)

(Anonymous)
(Written quickly, unbetaed. Hope you don't mind the pairing at the end, OP.)






The Hard Way



This is how it happens: Sherlock and Lestrade are talking, unaware that John is in the other room. Not wanting to interrupt them, John waits, and he can't help but overhear their conversation.


"Look, Sherlock," Lestrade is saying. "I can't keep doing this. I don't want you on my crime scenes anymore."


"What?" Sherlock says. "You can't be serious."


"I'm sorry, but I am. I won't be calling you in to consult on cases anymore."


"Why? What have I done?"


Silence.


"For god's sake, Lestrade!" Sherlock explodes. "You can't do this. You need me, and I need the work. You know the work is everything to me. So, what is it? What do you want? Do you want me to fill out more paperwork? Do you want me to stop insulting people on your team? I can't help you unless you tell me what you - "


"I want John, alright?" Lestrade snaps. "Are you happy now? I want John. I'm in love with him, and it's become too painful seeing you two together. The sight of you, the sight of you both is... too much and I... I just can't handle seeing it anymore."


"I'll stop bringing him with me to crime scenes," Sherlock says after a long moment.


"No. That won't help," Lestrade says. "You'll still be together and I'll still know, every time I see you. I can barely stand the sight of you these days. No, I think it's best if I end my association with you now." He pauses, then continues, "It's not like I'm putting you out of a job. I'm sure you'll find another DI and team to work with, and if not, you'll always have private cases."


Silence. John is too stunned by the conversation to move, to even breathe.


"Take him then," Sherlock finally says, his voice grave. He's serious. "Take him and give me back my work."


John discovers in that moment why people call it heartbreak. He can feel it, his heart breaking, right in the centre of his chest. He walks away, stumbling when he gets outside. He takes a cab to 221B, packs up the few belongings he cares about, and leaves before Sherlock gets home. No, not home, John thinks. Not anymore.




Semi-obscure Crossover Fic: TWEWY

(Anonymous)
[spoilers for The World Ends With You]
ok so this is sort of a long-shot fandom crossover but


John and Sherlock in the Reaper's Game, scrambling through the London UG trying to come back to life.
How they die is up to you--I was actually thinking of this as post-pool fic for a while.
Or it could be completely AU and they could meet in the UG and partner up, John having died in Afghanistan (but his spirit is in London somehow because it's not explained how that works) and Sherlock on a case and they team up against GM Moriarty.

Sherlock's entrance fee would almost undoubtedly be his intelligence--so the UG would reduce him to being average or maybe slightly slow, but he'd still be aware that he valued his intelligence.
John's entrance fee-- possibly his relationship with Sherlock? or his sense of right and wrong perhaps.
I'm not set on these, though, write what you want.

Would write it myself, but I have absolutely no knowledge of London and would prefer not to dump them in Shibuya for no good reason.

DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WANT THIS

Re: Semi-obscure Crossover Fic: TWEWY

(Anonymous)
ohmygod.

That is brilliant.

Now I'm off thinking about what each character's entry fee would be.

Also, the idea of Sherlock having to play Tin Pin Slammer for a Mission is hilarious.

OH GOD NOW I AM IMAGINING THE FUSIONS.

Eating Disorder Pity Prompt

(Anonymous)
I've been living with an eating disorder for five years, and in a couple of days I will be entering a voluntary treatment program. Frankly, I'm terrified. I have no idea what to expect, and I really don't know if I want to get better to be honest. I know this is a pity prompt, but I could really use a fic about any of the characters from Sherlock dealing with an eating disorder. Thank you.

Re: Eating Disorder Pity Prompt

Oh, gosh. I'd love to fill, but I have no idea how to handle eating disorders/what treatments are like. Erggh

"Overcome by sheer weight of numbers"

I've prompted for a Hamish-and-Siger story, but never for this:

After Mary's death, Sherlock and John are raising three kids: John and Mary's Siger, Sherlock and Irene's Hamish, and (because the British Government is a busy man) Mycroft and Irene's Nero.

I want to see Sherlock and John's gradual, horrifying realization that their kids are as bright as they are, as devious as Sherlock can be, and have them outnumbered. And can, when they choose, present a united front.

I need a grease-verse Sherlock so badly. I can totally see greaser!sherlock hitting on John at the prom, but I can't write it

so please please please, anybody?

(Anonymous)
After a particularly long/brutal case, John forces an exhausted Sherlock to wind down and finally take the time to eat and rest properly. He loves how plaint Sherlock is after a meal (all that digestion slowing him down!) and can't help but fuss and watch over Sherlock even after he's collapsed in bed (John's bed?), just to bask in the reassurance that the overworked detective is finally safe and taken care of.

Nanny

(Anonymous)
Severely wounded and delerious, even grown adults will sometimes cry out for their mum.
Critical after prolonged and agonising torture, Sherlock instinctively cries out for his nanny instead.

'Mummy' finally realises that in finding the balance between children and social standing, she may have chosen poorly.

John Watson writes 'The Hobbit'.

(Anonymous)
Somewhere in the depths of tumblr a fellow Sherlockian suggested the headcanon that John takes writing more seriously after Sherlock left in RBF. In doing this, he writes 'The Hobbit', and takes the pseudonym 'Tolkien'.

Obviously, the book is leaped upon by the public: franchise, talk of films, etc.

When Sherlock comes back, John completely ignores him and spends his time writing 'The Lord of the Rings'. After the whole trilogy is completed, John finally says that he's ready to forgive Sherlock.

Re: John Watson writes 'The Hobbit'.

D/S au

(Anonymous)
I once read a D/S au fic that had Sherlock as the dom and John was his sub. When Sherlock came back after the fall he found that John hadn't ever taken off the collar Sherlock gave him. I'd like a similar fic except that Sherlock is the sub.
