AU meets canon

Sherlock is a criminal who uses portals to other universes as his getaway vehicle after heists/murders/whatever you decide he does.

One day, he falls into the canon universe.

The one thing that all the other universes never had? A John Watson. Who is currently living out a rather dull life without his own Sherlock.

Can be slash or just friendship or even animosity between the two. Whatever you feel like!

I didn't know I needed this so much until now. Seconding!

Soul Eater Xover: Meister!Sherlock & Weapon!John

I'd like a crossover with Soul Eater where Sherlock is a weapon meister who is paired with gun weapon John. This would be a great opportunity to play off Sherlock and John's quirks as their own bit of madness.

So, you have two choices and an added idea.

A: Sherlock and John are both students at Shibusen. Maybe Mycroft is a graduated meister still working first hand with Lord Death and perhaps Moriarty is the Kenshin.

B: John has been a Death Scythe for years and is now paired with the strange but brilliant meister, Sherlock. Mycroft is a meister as well and Moriarty is still the Kenshin.

Bonus Idea: Make Mycroft Lord Death/Spirit and Sherlock the equivalent of Death the Kid/Maka. John is either a Death Scythe now paired with Sherlock or they are both students still.

Bonus Bonus: Irene's a witch, the equivalent of Medusa or Arachne. Probably a mix of both.

Re: Soul Eater Xover: Meister!Sherlock & Weapon!John

*internally screaming* Seconded and thirded cause I thought about writing this but I was too worried it wouldn't come out right. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ASKING FOR THIS!!!!

Three funerals

Sherlock has to bury John, Mycroft and Lestrade (not necessarily in that order). How does he react when he loses the three most important men in his life one by one?

I'm filling this.

John/any (or any/any) +sherlock- it turns into a threesome with (parental kink ?)

John (or anyone else I ship Sherlock and John with everyone even rare pairs) gets either a very serious girlfriend (boyfriend?I'm not opposed to Mycroft/John, Lestrade/John or anyone else including Mary/John) or he gets married to a wonderful wife/husband.

Sherlock is like their adorably pesky child (that can be rather cruel at times) who follows mummy and daddy around and is jealous when attention is not on him.

Only Sherlock is not a child and thus when he runs into the two love birds having sex it makes one of them shout out his name (just by seeing him there watching them) and not because s/he was surprised. Sherlock can pretend it was just the shock and their lover may be none the wiser they really want to pretend? Can they really go back to the 'exasperated parents' mode when theres that sexual tension beneath the surface?

I REALLY REALLY would like just anything on this so if you want to cut off the sex part and just have the beginning with parentalish/friendship working its way into a proper threesome in any other way thats fine. :)

daddy/mommy kink that both have . Sherlock is fussy and alternates between wanting to be treated like a proper adult and liking all the attention he is getting.

John's partner knows how to deal with him when he is in a mood better then even John did!

Re: John/any (or any/any) +sherlock- it turns into a threesome with (parental kink ?)

Seconded. I think this would be fascinating with John/Lestrade/Sherlock, just because I can so easily see this sort of scenario happening.

Teenage AU

Someone breaks John's heart, and Jim is furious. He decided to do something cruel.

Johnlock, wallet silliness

John Watson keeps a photo of his flatmate in his wallet and it's not weird, okay? (Except it totally is.)

Sherlock has to come to Mycrofts rescue when he is arrested. And cant contain his glee.

Mycroft manages to get himself arrested. Sherlock has to come and bail him out for what ever reason. And he can't quite contain his glee. In fact he relishes having his brother on the other side of the bars for once and taunts him just a bit. Mycroft has to grovel and apologize if he wants to get out. He might just prefer to stay arrested.

Lestrade silently witnessing this would be awesome.

Re: Sherlock has to come to Mycrofts rescue when he is arrested. And cant contain his glee.

YES. YES. I wholeheartedly agree to this! Seconded to the ends of the earth and back!!!

Mystrade - Mycroft LOVES spoiling Lestrade. Lestrade...not so much.


Inspiration :3

Mycroft LOVES showering money and expensive as hell things on Lestrade. Lestrade is really not used to it, keeps getting teased and side eyed over it but is too much of a gentlemen to say no because Mycroft just looks so /happy/ and loving and its a bit hard to get that reaction out of him over and over again what with him being the ice man and all.

+5 If he asks John for help on the matter.

+10 If Mycroft is just really bad at affection and when Lestrade brings up how he doesn't want all the stuff Mycroft misunderstands and thinks he is being rejected.

Repeated Kidnapping and Torture - John

Inspired by a prompt where Moriarty beats Sherlock nearly to death and leaves him with John to recover, and my evil, evil brain that wants to see John suffer. (WARNING: LONG PROMPT IS LONG)

Moriarty kidnaps John and tortures him. Sherlock, Mycroft and the Yarders are all trying their hardest trying to find John, all the while worried sick of their Doctor. Thankfully, John is found, and he recovers fully in about . I want the injuries to be recoverable, preferably not too harsh (just yet).

But despite the increased security John is kidnapped again, and the entire process repeats. John is found again, and it takes him more time to recover. Sherlock feels a pattern coming (longer recovery time, worse injuries which may or may not escalate to body mutilation), and so is more determined to catch Moriarty. But John is kidnapped again despite Mycroft's efforts, released again with more lasting injuries, and kidnapped again when John is recovered, repeatedly.

What I would like to see is Sherlock's attempts to pre-emptively stop Moriarty's plans and fail, somehow keep losing John because of minor details, and eventually getting more and more desperate to just keeping John safe. John himself is going insane with paranoia and anxiety, just dreading and waiting for the cycle to be over just for it to start again. Also Mycroft and/or Lestrade feeling powerless, as no matter what 'impenetrable armor' they set up, Moriarty keep finding (or making) loopholes.

Happy ending preferred, but not required. Also any or no pairing is fine, as long as it isn't Sherlock/Mycroft, or Mystrade.

TL;DR: John is repeatedly kidnapped and tortured.

Re: Repeated Kidnapping and Torture - John

Yes please

Winter Weight - a little holiday fluff?

John tends to put on weight during the holidays; this year is no different. Sherlock notices, teases him a bit; John doesn't mind in the least, however, because this year, he's not the only one at 221b looking a bit thicker around the middle. Bonus points if each finds the other even more desirable. (Also points for general holiday frivolity and fluff.)

Established relationship or not, either would be fun!

Lady and the tramp story line.

Lestrade is the Tramp. Mycroft is Lady. Mycroft is having trouble at home and runs away.Lestrade comes to his rescue.

Festive good cheer, oh do shut up

John nurses Sherlock, with all appropriate sympathy, through his first hangover.

Re: Festive good cheer, oh do shut up

It is ten am Christmas morning and John is halfway through the paper and a cup of tea when Sherlock finally shuffles out of his room, squinting at the daylight that filters in through the windows.

It doesn't take John more than a quick glance at his roommate to confirm what he had already suspected. "Told you the fourth butter shot was a mistake."

"Fuck off."

"As was the six, seventh and eight." John pointedly returned to his paper. While part of John knew it was unfair, he was tired of taking care of alcoholics. He couldn't count how many mornings his sister shuffled out her room just like Sherlock, gasped and ran to the bathroom with her over her mouth, just as Sherlock was doing now. So pale and nauseous and...

When Sherlock returned, he found John pointedly buried in the paper, but tea, Advil and a glass of water waiting for him at the table. Sherlock took the Advil then a sip of tea before starting back towards his bedroom.

John pulled down the paper. "Aren't you going to eat?"

Sherlock starred at John for a moment. What did he think he was just doing in the bathroom? He tried to think of something scathing to say, but his hungover mind was not working properly.

Oh God. He couldn't think.

John was suddenly there, easing him towards the couch. Whereas before he was pointedly disapproving, he positively radiated concern now. "Easy there Sherlock. It's okay. What's wrong?"

"I...I can't think."

John laughed, which made Sherlock flinch.

"Sorry, just, haven't you been hung over before?"

Sherlock, who had buried his face in his hands muffled, "no."

Interesting, John thought, cocaine and morphine, but not alcohol. "It happens when you drink to much, but it will pass as the day progresses. Meanwhile you need to eat. A BLT always seemed to work best for Harry for some reason. It will help settle your stomach and clear your head."

"Why do people voluntarily do this to themselves. I am never drinking ever again," Sherlock moaned.

John just chuckled and began to cook the bacon, while deviously singing Christmas carols.

"Oh do shut up."


When they were growing up Sherlock had a fear towards something (I was thinking spiders because I couldn't think of what else he'd be afraid of. Clowns? idk) . Mycroft thought it illogical so he tried making Sherlock grow out of it by continuously introducing him to his fear. Like hold him down and forcing him to touch spiders.

Mycroft miscalculated and instead it just made his brother have all sorts of problems and for it to grow into a full blown phobia until one of their parents found out and punished him.

+5 Sherlock got therapy for it but the phobia never truly went away.

Tear in the fabric(of the universe)

After Sherlock falls John lives in a daze, during this time he somehow (you can make it up) forgets Sherlock. A fic about how he and others if you want acclimatizes to this Sherlock shaped hole in life.

Anything else can be as free as you want but required please are:

1. John must completely forget Sherlock at some point in the fic.
2. It must be within a reasonable time from the fall of sherlock.

John ends up in trouble while Sherlock is 'dead' Crossover Au!

So a crossover I keep seeing is that Sherlock went with the Doctor after the fall. So while Sherlock was with the Doctor John was -insert other show here/original idea-.

Did John end up being transported by a weeping angel to Merlin's time?
Did he end up with the Winchester brothers ? I'm sure Mycroft's influence would help there.
Did he end up dragging someone like Lestrade or Molly or even Mycroft with him to this one inter dimensional travel portal he found?

Idk it just seems John's as much of a trouble magnet as Sherlock and he is a conductor of light after all...

Werewolf AU: Alpha John, Omega Sherlock, Prison, experiments

Sorry for the long prompt. (This is what Christmas does to me)

John was attacked in Afghanistan by Werewolfes.
John is taken in for studies, kept in a cell, under surveillance.
They keep him there for a long, long time. There is another were that has survived the attack in Afghanistan, and they are brought together in the cell.
When they turn, there is a lengthy territorial fight. John is an alpha and kills the other. Cause that is what weres do.
John is alone for a long, long time.

Then they bring in Sherlock.

This one is defiant, got himself turned during a case in Baskerville.
John can smell omega on him.
They keep them side by side but still in different cells, and john goes into heat, seeing red, jumping the fence between them again and again. It scares Sherlock who is new to being a were.
It forces him to cower.

Needless to say that they open the door during the next full moon. And john takes Sherlock who is utterly horrified and therefore does not know how to relax to make the mating as painless as possible.

Happy ending, Sad ending, how John and Sherlock get along with the situation, anything is up to the filler. Explicit is always welcome.

Re: Werewolf AU: Alpha John, Omega Sherlock, Prison, experiments

How do you feel about morning-after scenes? Do you have objections to my taking this as the starting point for a convoluted Universe-developing *thing* of questionable sense and morality? This prompt has been chewing at me, and I think I might have something.

Marvel Movieverse Crossover

Not!Anthea is/was/will be Darcy Lewis.

Re: Marvel Movieverse Crossover

Yes. This. Seconded.

crossover: wire in the blood

So uhm..does anyone remember "Wire in the Blood"?
I'd love to see how the brilliant Tony Hill and Sherlock meet! Maybe they end up working on the same case. I'm not picky :) Other characters can appear as well, I really don't mind. I just want to read what Sherlock and Tony think of each other (no slash, ok?).

Sherlock isn't particularly religious but he believes in God.

Seconding because this fits my headcanon and Sherlock's moral compass.

Sherlock Wetting, Anyone?

How about Sherlock is at a crime scene, ignoring/disregarding the fact that he really has to pee, until it gets to a point where it is too late. Maybe wets himself and Donovan and or Anderson make fun of him until Lestrade and or John see what happened and get them to stop and leave? Sherlock is totally humiliated. Lestrade and John comfort him while wondering how he could have be that attached to his work? I don't know..I just want Sherlock to wet himself at a crime scene and be humiliated..

Dr Watson

Sherlock comes onto John by using his professional name, Dr. Watson. Smut ensues. Anyone?

And Mycroft Fell In Love That Day

'Mycroft's been a bad influence on you Lestrade. You've gained a stone since the two of you initiated this relationship of yours. Perhaps you should put the donuts down.'

'Piss off, Sherlock. I'm a middle-aged man, I'm entitled to a little flab.'

Re: And Mycroft Fell In Love That Day

This sounds awesome.

Hamish prompt omegaverse

How World teenage hamish react if Sherlock and John got à surprise bun in The oven?

Scott Pilgrim Xover

Could someone maybe do a Scott Pilgrim type deal, where either John (or Sherlock) has however many evil-ex's, and Sherlock (or John) has to defeat them (in some way) in order to be with John (or Sherlock)?
Bonus if Moriarty is the Gideon.
Extra Bonus is Lestrade is Wallace Wallace.
Extra Extra Bonus if Harry and/or Mycroft are Stacey and/or Julie.
Extra Extra Extra Bonus if Molly is Knives.

A Study in Scarlet excerpt - BBC rewrite please.

I was on the point of asking him what that work might be, but something in his manner showed me that the question would be an unwelcome one. I pondered over our short conversation, however, and endeavoured to draw my deductions from it. He said that he would acquire no knowledge which did not bear upon his object. Therefore all the knowledge which he possessed was such as would be useful to him. I enumerated in my own mind all the various points upon which he had shown me that he was exceptionally well-informed. I even took a pencil and jotted them down. I could not help smiling at the document when I had completed it. It ran in this way—
1. Knowledge of Literature.—Nil.
2. Philosophy.—Nil.
3. Astronomy.—Nil.
4. Politics.—Feeble.
5. Botany.—Variable. Well up in belladonna,
opium, and poisons generally.
Knows nothing of practical gardening.
6. Geology.—Practical, but limited.
Tells at a glance different soils
from each other. After walks has
shown me splashes upon his trousers,
and told me by their colour and
consistence in what part of London
he had received them.
7. Chemistry.—Profound.
8. Anatomy.—Accurate, but unsystematic.
9. Sensational Literature.—Immense. He appears
to know every detail of every horror
perpetrated in the century.
10. Plays the violin well.
11. Is an expert singlestick player, boxer, and swordsman.
12. Has a good practical knowledge of British law.
When I had got so far in my list I threw it into the fire in despair. "If I can only find what the fellow is driving at by reconciling all these accomplishments, and discovering a calling which needs them all," I said to myself, "I may as well give up the attempt at once."

Consulting Detective

A couple of you have asked me, in emails, what exactly it means for Sherlock to be a “consulting detective”. Believe me, as soon as I'm sure of everything that's involved I'll let you know.

To answer one question: yes, he's apparently quite serious about “deleting” from his brain any information not having to do with the Work (and when he says it, you can hear the capital letter in his voice). Which explains his bizarre range of both knowledge and ignorance:

Of actual literature, the stuff you study at uni, he's apparently even more ignorant than I am and I do not claim that's easy.
Of philosophy, ditto. On all counts.
Astronomy – I believe I mentioned the solar-system thing? He knows there's a North Star but I don't think he could find it. He surprised me by knowing the phases of the moon, but I suppose that would be useful for someone who prowls the city by night. Yes, prowls.
Politics – Again, I had to remind him who the PM was. He seems reasonably certain of the Queen's name. Anything else to do with politics he leaves to another branch of the family.
Botany – Any plant that will kill you, he knows about. Was very disappointed to learn that climate will prevent him growing oleander in Mrs Hudson's back garden.
Geology – You show him a clot of soil, he can tell you exactly where in London it came from. I mean it: he'll look at my muddy shoes and say, “That particular colour and consistency is only found at such-and-such intersection, on the northeast corner”. And he'll be right and I'll have been exactly there earlier in the day. But given his thuddingly ignorant state regarding the structure of the solar system, I doubt he knows why there are layers of different colours in a road cut.
Chemistry – this is his field. If it exists to be known, he knows it.
Human anatomy – Very accurate with regard to anything that can be done to the human body by violence. Or, as I said above, poisons.
Tabloid literature – At first I'd have said no, unless it involved a celebrity accused of something horrific. Lately he's developed a really disturbing taste in television.
History – Only what relates to the Work (my god, now he's got me doing it). He can give you the details of every appallingly violent crime committed in the past hundred years, possibly twice that. And I mean far more details than you'd ever want to know. But he might need to look up who was ruling England at the time of the Ripper killings.
Music – Not my area but I think he plays the violin well. Or can drive people out of the room with it.
What else? He's more than adequate at self defence, my match and I'm in no false humility not bad. Has a diploma in some school of Japanese hand-to-hand that I'm not familiar with. Of his marksmanship all I will say is that you may be safer in front of him than behind him. He's got a strong working knowledge of the law, particularly criminal law – how to get someone convicted or keep them from being.
And there you go. Find a pattern in that and you may have the key to what being a “consulting detective” involves. Good luck.
