Thread bondage (reprompt)

From :

Helpless, defenseless.

Bound only with single strands of the finest thread.

The point is not to be held in bonds he cannot break.

The point is that he could break them with a single move, and chooses not to.

"I had bad days!" - BAMF!John, A-team crossover

So, crossovers are brilliant - especially when they show-off John's inherent BAMFness!
I loved the Ironman crossover of awesome ("BROTHER, YOU NEED A SUIT TO GET OUT OF THIS SHIT HOLE? I JUST NEED MY FUCKEN GUNS AND MY NERVES OF STEEL."), and now I've stumbled over a ficlet on AO3 where John basically saved the day and their collective arses when he met Hannibal and his guys in Afghanistan.

And now I want more, because there can never be enough BAMF!John, can there?

For anyone who's interested:

(Right, this is getting bizarre. Mycroft wants to adopt grown-up John... wtf?)

Mycroft is a slut for Greg's cock

Just what it says on the tin. Thanks :)

+1000 if Greg is a bit overwhelmed and incredulous to have such a powerful effect on prime and proper Mycroft

Re: Mycroft is a slut for Greg's cock


I love slutty Mycroft!

Dark!Badass!John tortures Moriarty (TW: violence)

I've seen a few fics where John turns into Dark!John during the hiatus but most of them go along with John joining up with Moriarty.

Instead I'd like to see something which I think feels a bit truer to the character but also explores the darker aspects of our favorite doctor. Where John is grieving for Sherlock and happens to find out that Moriarty is still alive. After reading The Casebook it's clear that John knows that Sherlock was being forced to say those things and then forced to 'kill himself', so seeing Moriarty he knows that he is to blame for his best friends death.

Twisted by his anger and grief, there's only one thing he feels he can do to avenge Sherlock.

That is, capturing Moriarty in some surprisingly brilliant way, restraining him in some random warehouse - and then proceeding to brutally torture him for hours. Days, even. In various creative and surprisingly brutal and intricate manners (he is a doctor after all).

Preferably ending with Jim cracking under the pain and admitting to Sherlock being alive - then instantly dying before John can get anymore information out of him.

Bonus points for Moriarty being surprised and impressed by how clever John was to get him unawares and admits he underestimated him - but pretends to enjoy the torture for the most part, in fact egging John on for more. But eventually even he breaks. Yes - John Watson breaks Jim Moriarty. If the author can almost make it so that we actually feel a little sorry for Jim and scared of John - all the better.

(Partly inspired by the latest ep of Elementary, I won't lie).

Re: Dark!Badass!John tortures Moriarty (TW: violence)

This prompt is the best prompt. I love a dark!John <3


Mycroft has a glasses kink. Whenever Lestrade shows up with his shades or reading glasses, Mycroft goes all weak on his knees.

Re: Mycroft/Lestrade

Yes, please? As a glasses wearer, glasses!kink is awesome!

Mycroft says hardens, so I do believe he approves of this message!

Re: Mycroft/Lestrade (Anonymous) Expand

Any/sherlock or completely friendship gen , maybe character death

One of Sherlock's friends gives him/herself up to save Sherlock. Even though Sherlock has never really noticed he has people who care about him or the extent that his best friend cares for him that love for him is still there. Yes, he is a prick but he is their prick.

Anything where John is the asexual one and not Sherlock. Bonus if Sherlock really puts his mind to it and understands how to make the relationship work.

I so want this!

There's been a murder...

And even Sherlock has to admit that all the evidence points toward John. The police are very apologetic about having to follow every lead, and John gamely goes along with all the questioning... right up until they actually try to arrest him. Cue BAMF!John and Mama Bear!Sherlock.

FILL: There's been a murder... 1/3


John sits in his favourite armchair and watches as the blood seeps into the carpet. He is still in shock. Sherlock ignores him.

“Yes, a body!” Sherlock says into his phone. “Dead! Of course it’s dead. Do you think I’d be calling you if it was still alive?!” He’s quickly losing his patience because it’s been a long day and he had to deal with plenty of idiots already and John didn’t react at all when he returned home and–

“Can you give me your address, sir?”

“You should have had my bloody address traced as we were speaking!” He barks at the woman at the other end of the line. She sounds young, mid-twenties, probably tries to get a degree in psychology at UEL, he should really ask Anderson about his wife but not it’s not a good time to get sidetracked. “221B, Baker Street,” he informs the woman who has to be completely dense if she doesn’t already know that. Maybe it really is her full time job and she isn’t as young as her phone-voice might suggest.

Sherlock realises he’s still clutching the phone to his ear and distractedly slips it back to his pocket. “John?” He tries again despite himself but John isn’t reacting even though he should be reacting because they ought to have them trained for this. “John!”

There is still some blood on the knife even though it’s been wiped with a towel from their kitchen. Oh, Sherlock hopes John didn’t use the white one with a blue stripe because he had a nice binary fission going on in there. “We need to cover things up before the police arrives.”

John doesn’t seem to hear him.

With a sigh, Sherlock crouches down next to the stiff male body and wonders if John would let him keep the carpet to run a few experiments on it. “Interesting,” Sherlock mutters, poking the man’s naked forearm. “Hand me a pair of tweezers, John.”

Sherlock holds out his outstretched hand before he remembers. He stands up, walks to the window and waits for the police. He needs to think. Luckily, both the body and John are completely silent.

Sherlock opens Pandora's box.

Do with that what you will.

Did someone order Crack?

he expected something... magical, he supposed. Even if Magic was something he didn't believe in.
He's just heard about it for so long.
And it does nothing.
He stares at it and it continues to do nothing.
He swears it's looking back, taunting him even.

"John! It doesn't work! The stupid, bloody thing doesn't even work!" Sherlock bellows.
An ever put upon John is beside him soon enough.

"Well, of course it isn't doing anything, it doesn't know what you want."

Sherlock's face contorts, that small area between his brow furrowing in a way John can't help but admit is adorable.

"Here, love," John pulls the computer so he can type.
"Name one of your favorite composers."

"Bryce Dessner," Sherlock states without thought.

"Alright. See where is says 'new station'? Type it in..."

John hit enter.
Music poured from the speakers and Sherlock's eyes fluttered closed.
John wondered for a moment if he was alright.
Before he even got a chance to ask, Sherlock spoke, never opening his eyes.
"Aheym; Yiddish for "Homeward". Written for the Kronos quartet... so many emotions wrapped up in rhythm and sound..."

John leaned his head on Sherlock's shoulder. Unexpectedly, Sherlock lolled his head over till it was on top of John's.
It never ceased to amaze John that music could touch Sherlock when almost nothing else could. Almost. The fact that he was sharing this beautiful moment with John brought warmed so many emotions in John's chest.
He was very glad he suggested the internet radio station

Couldn't actually find the song on there, but it fit so well with what, to my mind, Sherlock would like.

Wanna hear it? Here it is!


Okay, this is never going to be filled, I know, but I guess I can try?

There's a pretty decent amount of Deaf!Sherlock or nonverbal!signing!Sherlock, as well as French!Sherlock. Could anyone maybe mix that together? I'd love to see Sherlock signing LSF (or LSQ even?). Or, well, really, I'd just love to see a fictional character go through the hell that I went through trying to learn BSL (I'm a Deaf girl born in France and raised signing LSF, and my parents for some reason decided when I was thirteen to move to the UK. You would think for their proximity the languages would be vaguely similar? Not so.), and the Sherlock fandom seems the most likely candidate.

Besides, LSF is prettier than BSL. And considering his chemistry, LSF is also much more practical, because none of the compounds have signs, and LSF's manual alphabet is single-handed.

Re: Deaf!French!Sherlock


Death, in all its glory.

Based on this gifset:

Sherlock returns sooner than expected, for the very reason he "died" failed to protect the most important person in his life. He learns that John has been shot by Moran and will not survive his injuries. He stays by John's side until he dies, says goodbye, and then finds Moran with the help of his brother. The torture he exacts is honed by years of studying bodies and criminals: Slow, painful, and beyond the darkest depths he ever knew existed.

(Rather it not be three years)

dark!Sherlock/John- John does not take kindly to be abused

Dark!Sherlock/John but with John not submitting to him and trying to find ways out of the arrangement or to make Sherlock more moral.

+5 If he can't get help or can't get out he has to decide whether to kill himself or Sherlock.

Virgin Sherlock with a twist.

I would like a fic where Sherlock is indeed a virgin. But he's fine with it he just doesn't want to give it up without a serious committent (longterm relationship , marriage, engagement,... Something like those). He's very willing to begin a relationship with John (or lestrade) but will only have sex on those terms.

If possible I would like to read about the initial conversation and a build up to the actual act.
Description of said act would be a BIG bonus.

No crack please.

Re: Virgin Sherlock with a twist.

I like it. Sounds both hot and fluffy. I second

John/Sherlock + sextoys

John and Sherlock save the day for Mycroft. The latter is grateful and sends them a present: it's a basket full of sophisticated sextoys.

Even Three-Continent-John Watson blushes when he sees the content.

Anything goes except non-con, scat, watersport, gore, mutilation.

+100 if there's a tentacle-thingy in the basket.

Re: John/Sherlock + sextoys

Omg ! Second!!

Sherlock's caught in gravity

Sherlock is caught in someone's gravity and can't escape, he just keeps coming back...

Preferably Johnlock, maybe it's during the time Sherlock is away after the fall-- prompt inspired by Sara Bareilles' song Gravity :)

Omega!John says to hell with the Alpha!Holmeses and chooses Greg

Just as the title says. John is an Omega trapped between two alpha Holmeses.

John has enough of this and leaves the Holmes brothers to their tug-a-war and visits the cute alpha D.I. that caught his interest from the moment John saw him.

To say that the Holmes brothers are not amused is an understatement.

Re: Omega!John says to hell with the Alpha!Holmeses and chooses Greg

This prompt is gold. I just disagree with one thing: Greg is not "cute", he is "hot" (and that's an understatement)!

Mark Morstan/John Watson - antagonistic relationship full of UST

Inspired by the gifset of Richard Armitage as a male version of Mary.

Mark is the new doctor at John’s hospital. They can’t stand each other. Cue lots of snark and UST filled fights between them that may or may not lead to John getting fucked bent over his desk.

Bonus points if john is constantly complaining about Mark to Sherlock, Mrs. Hudson, Lestrade, even Anderson
My life if somehow Mark got John’s mobile number and they text-fight when they aren’t working

Re: Mark Morstan/John Watson - antagonistic relationship full of UST

Nnngh yes. Seconded!

Sally is tired of practically suffocating in the UST between Sherlock and John. She starts flirting with John just to get a reaction.

Ooh, seconded.

Routine "Drug Busts"

I would like to see a story where "Drug Busts" happen at least once a month. (Usually more)

They happen so often John eventually treats them as normal and just sits and drinks tea while reading. He doesn't get mad or upset just asks them to let him know if they find the remote, because its been missing for a week.

Gen or Slash please. If slash either John/Sherlock or John/Mycroft.

[FILL] We said Thursday - Pt1/2

Silly prompts make me happy.
Here's my take. It kinda got away from me so it might not be exactly what you requested, but I tried, I guess? xD
Not britpicked or beta'd, so feel free to correct any and all mistakes.


There's a knock at the door of 221B just as John is lowering himself onto the armchair, mug of tea in one hand, paperback novel on the other. They had finished a case not 9 hours earlier. Sherlock had fallen into his version of sleep (which looked more like a 5 in the Glaslow coma scale and John had seen last up to 21 hours, 40 minutes) and the doctor had been looking forward to a quiet morning of tea and a good fantasy book (mystery novels had lost all their charm once he moved in with Sherlock). He huffs and leaves both items on the coffee table before heading to the door.

Yet, before he can even get to it, the door flies open violently and Sally Donovan steps forward. It's more than obvious by her stance and the smug twist of her lips that she just kicked the bloody thing in, and John gives himself half a second to admire her skills before groaning loudly. Half a dozen of London's Best and Brightest are standing in the foyer before 221B, looking everything from disgusted to scarily eager.

“We said Thursday.” he complains as soon as he spots Lestrade in the crowd.

Lestrade's face twists into something vaguely apologetic. “Yeah, I know. But the DCI wants the report on the case by Friday, so we had to go ahead with it.”

John lets out a long-suffering sigh (he's getting better at those every day, living with Sherlock) and with a grumbled “Fine” shuffles back inside and snatches back his mug and book before snuggling into his armchair.

The yarders enter the flat behind him and scatter around the place with the ease that comes with practice. The warm tea quickly chases away the remnants of John's annoyance and he sits contently on his chair while reading his book.

“Third cupboard from the right, Sally.” John speaks up when he hears steps heading towards the kitchen. Ever since the incident with the noses, John had taken to warn Sally about where the worst experiments had been stored. It made for a less stroppy Sherlock and slightly more bearable crime scenes. “Oh, and breadbox.” he added, and there was suddenly the dull thud of something being closed hurriedly. “And leave the bloody skull alone, Anderson. I guarantee there are no drugs inside”

A young constable John has never seen before – in the flat or at the crime scenes – skitters into his visual field. John looks up and the constable freezes under the doctor's assessing glare, but John smiles politely and nods towards the couch. “Since you're moving that anyway, would you mind getting the remote? It fell between the couch and the wall and I honestly couldn't be arsed to try to get it” he requests and the constable's eyes widen and he goes a bit pale, but John's voice is so gentle he can't really say no. A quarter hour later, John has not only gotten the remote back, but has managed to convince the young man to fetch him a new mug of tea and remove the cobwebs that had formed between the topmost shelf left to the fireplace and the ceiling.

Lestrade comes out from Sherlock's room some minutes later (apparently only he, John and Mrs Hudson can wake a sleeping Sherlock without risking being punched on the face. They'd discovered it the bad way, though even Lanner admitted his new teeth looked much better than the old ones) with a pleased smile on his face and holding a manilla folder containing who knows what. “Okay everybody, we're done here.” There's the noise of things being put down, drawers closed, chairs moved to the side and then twelve feet walking out and down the stairs. Lestrade closes the caravan and leaves the flat after a “Later then, mate.” John, by now thoroughly engrossed with his book, waves his hand dismissively, a clear gesture that Greg can see himself out.

It's 5.42 pm when Sherlock wakes up and, still bleary from sleep, looks around the sitting room and blinks a couple times. He turns to his right and notices the broken lock. “It is Thursday?” he asks John, his voice slightly rough from disuse.

“No” John replies flatly.

Sherlock makes a noncommittal humming noise and heads for the shower.

Johnlock; Asexual Relationship, Masturbation

Sherlock is asexual. John doesn't mind at all; he likes being watched. Good thing Sherlock likes to watch.

John masturbates (in front of Sherlock) with hands, or with toys (would prefer toys), but either is fine.

Sherlock watches, of course; and if the writer wishes verbally directs and/or even touches John during. Perhaps even some dirty talk?

Asexuality comes in many forms, after all.

NO non-con, scat, watersport, gore, mutilation, humiliation, or bdsm.

I know this has probably be done before, but, hey, there can never be enough asexual masturbation fic!

Re: Johnlock; Asexual Relationship, Masturbation

Please! I love asexual masturbation fics. Total kink for me.

Found TW: Suicidal themes

Sherlock's alive, the novelty has worn off, and everything is as back to as normal as it can be. Lestrade stages a "drugs bust" to irritate Sherlock after Sherlock does something. However, this time drugs are found. In John's room a large stash of pure oxycodone, a vial of Antiemetic and a small bag of cocaine.

Lestrade hides the drugs, has his team leave and them confronts John. John explains that the oxy and Antiemetic were because he had planned to kill himself after Sherlock's death. The cocaine was the remaining bag from a night where everything became too much...

No crack.

Re: Found TW: Suicidal themes

Really want to fill this, but I'm quite busy right now. Give me a few days?

Harvey. warning: long prompt

[Google the play & Movie Harvey if unfamiliar]

Sherlock has Mycroft send the surveillance videos of John. When he watches he comments on John's stupididy, tries to counsel him, makes snide remarks as he watches John slowly fall apart, use his cane, lose weight, avoid others and then slowly build himself back up.

Sherlock doesn't have his Skull or the real John. So he starts talking to John all the time, using the real footage to work with. Harvey!John helps him with evidence, remarks on his brilliance, reminds him to sleep and eat and even helps him to navigate the Shops.

When Sherlock returns and talks about what happened he says things like "remember when we.." To John. John was upset at first but fully understood why sherlock did what he did. Now however, John is very angry, hurt, and believes himself to be completely useless and truly a replacement "skull" since it is evident that he could so easily be replaced by Harvey!John

John leaves. John eventually returns, but not until considerable work on Sherlock's part to let John know how important he is (and if Harvey!John helps Sherlock to see how stupid & insensitve he was... He'll never tell real John).

Please not a crack fill though humor is as welcome as hurt/pain/anger/bewildered people in a shop as Sherlock argues with Harvey!John

Re: Harvey. warning: long prompt

Oh my goodness! That movie is just awesome, I can't even... So good!

Seconding because of reasons and a 6-foot tall rabbit told me to. ^_^

Not so subtle Mycroft

Mycroft has a thing for one of the guys in the IT department and keeps finding ways for him to fix his computer. Mycroft thinks he's being subtle about this, but Anthea is struggling to keep a straight face.

bonus: Mycroft gets a blowjob from the IT guy

(preferably, IT guy is an OC rather than Moriarty).

Getting it on in Public (Mycroft/Lestrade)

Mycroft runs. So does Lestrade. They bump into each other one morning and decide to run together.

Mycroft gets caught checking out Lestrade in his running tights.

Lestrade is a bit disappointed that Mycroft wears shorts over his running tights but is overly excited the day Mycroft has to stop to pee and Lestrade catches a glimpse of his cock (+the idea of Mycroft peeing in public is a turn on for him).

Lots of sexual tension that explodes in some desperate public frottage or mutual handjobs through their clothes.

Re: Getting it on in Public (Mycroft/Lestrade)

Love the image of both of them in running tights! Greg wouldn't be the only one disappointed by Mycroft's short!

You know how you throw shit into the trash on your computer and end up never actually deleting them, if you're lazy or afraid you might need them or whatnot, and one day you actually do and you end up with like 100 things in there and it takes ages to delete?

Sherlock's mind is like that. Whatever he deletes ends up in the trash, never actually completely gone- just out of reach.
One day (maybe due to the fall?) everything flips. All the files in Sherlock's brain are gone to the trash, and everything inside the trash comes back to his brain.

I'd like to see John's realization, Sherlock's and people's reaction.

Happy endings are well appreciated, though 'sad' ones are good, too.

Bonus: Sherlock and Anderson end up as friends since Sherlock seems to magically know so much about him now.
