Run Away Groom

Sherlock is arranged to be married to Irene. He isn't sure if this is what he wants until he meets John, the wedding photographer.

On his wedding day, Sherlock runs off with John.

An accident leaves John the ability to read minds. He sees what goes through Sherlock's mind and discovers about Sherlock's secret love for him.

Seconded (I always love psychic!John)

Sherlock never meets Mary

John meets Mary mere weeks after Sherlock's fall.

John loses Mary mere weeks before Sherlock's return.

I want something in which Sherlock rises from the dead three years after TRF and finds John newly widowed. Sherlock's never met Mary, but he knows she must have been interesting, because she made eternal bachelor John Watson settle down and commit and that alone makes her fascinating.

People keep on saying that she was a lovely woman and isn't it such a shame, but people are idiots and take everything at face value, and Sherlock wants to know who this Mary was, this person who crawled into John's heart and hollowed out a space for herself and settled there for a little while before she was torn from it.

He wants to deduce her, wants to analyze the way she walks, the way she breathes, the calluses of her fingers. He wants to talk to her and at her and observe the muscles of her face twitch and learn which words make her pupils contract and her fists clench.

But he can't, not unless he exhumes her body (which he knows wouldn't be appreciated), and for some reason it makes him angry. So he turns to the next best thing: John. And slowly, watching John piece his heart and his life together, Sherlock gets to know Mary Watson.

Re: Sherlock never meets Mary

Intriguing. I'd love to see this done.

PRE-Reichenbach Sex

Sherlock knows he's going to "die". Molly notes that he's sad. If he and John are together, there must have been a last time they had sex and Sherlock probably would have known is was the last time. So I want to know what that last time was like.

Sherlock seems to be normally a bit selfish and distracted--was he especially generous and present the last time? Was John totally weirded out by the change? Did Sherlock do that thing he never does, or that thing John asked for a million years ago but he turned down? Does John put two and two together, later, and realize that Sherlock knew he was going to "die"?

Re: PRE-Reichenbach Sex

Seconding so hard!

Sebastian/Jim, vanity

Jim takes a lot of pride in his appearance and spends a lot of time performing unnecessarily long and drawn out beauty routines which never fail to frustrate Sebastian. Seb doesn't care if Jim's eyebrows are even or not, he just wants to shag his infuriating boss. When he eventually manages to coax Jim into bed he gets a bit of a kick out of spoiling Jim's hard work by leaving marks on his neck and messing up his hair and generally ravishing his boss thoroughly.

Basically, Jim is vain and Sebastian is horny.

Moriarty discovers that the older brother is just as, if not more interesting than the younger. Would love this with a D/s flavor with Top!Mycroft giving sub!Moriarty everything he needs (which is obviously a spanking, bondage, rough sex, etc!)

Re: Moriarty/Mycroft

Yessssss. Very much seconded.

This had to happen eventually

So the lovely Benedict Cumberbatch was on American talk show Jimmy Kimmel live last night where he read some R. Kelly lyrics in a dramatic fashion. You can see the clip at: I can't embed as anon (I think) so you'll have to copy/paste or look it up on YouTube. It is at the same time hilarious and a little sexy (because THAT VOICE).

So I'd like to see Sherlock trying to use those lyrics to sweet talk John into bed and John being all 0.o WTF Sherlock?! Not that John is opposed to hopping into bed with Sherlock, he just doesn't know if the man is joking or just that bad at seducing someone.

Bonus points if John starts giggling in the middle of sex because he can't get what Sherlock just did out of his head.

tl;dr-bad at seduction!Sherlock tries to do a dramatic reading of hip-hop lyrics to get in John's pants.

Re: This had to happen eventually

Ok I laughed.....and laughed....and I can't stop laughing/imagining this.

John likes giving head

I just want John enjoying the hell out of going down on a woman. Any woman. The more detail the better. His POV.

John loves blowing Sherlock

(Inspired by a prompt above)

Formerly "straight" John realizes he absolutely loves going down on Sherlock. He loves the sounds he can make come out of Sherlock, the way he's incoherent when John does that thing with his tongue, the weight of Sherlock's cock on his tongue, filling his mouth so nicely, the way his come tastes.. John loves sucking Sherlock so much he can come in no time with no assistance at all.

(Can be another guy as well but I'd really prefer it to be Sherlock to be honest)


ftm!sherlock (or mtf, im not too picky)
but uh john finding him (or her) in the bathroom and they have a needle and is about to inject it ( im pretty sure it goes in the thigh?? idk cant remember) and thinks its drugs and gets really angry and tried to take it away and then sherlock gets angry and pushes john out of the bathroom and locks himself in their for a few hours and doesnt speak to him for a few days
and then maybe explanations when sherlocks ready to talk about it
idk i would just really really love to read this and love whomever wrote it

Re: misunderstandings

bloody love misunderstandings as a plot device, can't help it really :D
so seconded

Frolicking follicles!

Lestrade's hair became John's moustache.

Tell us how.

Re: Frolicking follicles!

This prompt and its title are the most hilarious things I've seen this month. Please someone fill this!

Re: Frolicking follicles! (Anonymous) Expand
Mycroft has a hard time saying "no" to his little brother.

(This is what was going through my mind when he let Sherlock talk him into getting into a high-security, confidential research facility)

noncon: Sherlock/Moriarty

Sherlock rapes Moriarty. Moriarty is too shaken to make any comments on Sherlock's warped morality, or what John would think, and Sherlock counts this as a victory.

Re: noncon: Sherlock/Moriarty

I'm curious about that.



John was staring right at Sherlock, when he stepped out and faced him at the pool. He saw the look in Sherlock's eyes when he thought that John = Moriarty.

Later on, maybe weeks later, John leans in behind Sherlock and makes some dark joke about how he's REALLY MORIARTY FOR SRS and Sherlock better clean up all his old mail and stuff in the sitting room, or else.

Sherlock makes kind of an embarrassing noise. And John is like, "....did that just turn you on? OH MY GOD THAT IS SO WRONG. AND HOT."

And then there is sexing with John-as-Moriarty roleplay.

Re: reprompt


really any John-as-Moriarty roleplay would be awesome IMO

TW- non-con a trope made a bit more plausible?

fair warning: long, ranty, detailed
do you know the trope -Sherlock is the victim of a sexual assault - John misunderstands and is angry at him for being unfaithful- heaps of angst?
yeah, so i just spent at least 45 mins making up a situation that would render this somewhat plausible and logically functional for a prompt from page 2 or so(because i like the occasional challenge of this kind ok? :P ) only to realize that it was probably too far off to fit the prompt anyway
*sigh* so i am putting it here in case someone wants to adopt it and play with it in my stead
-newly established johnlock
-Sherlock has a history of having sex under the influence of drugs and a particular reaction to a certain drug of choice that makes him very suggestible horny and a lot confused (research suggests GHB would be best but feel free to use any of the benzodiazepines just make sure its not a hypnotic(soporific) drug)
-John doesn't know this, their relationship being so new and all - but a BG of choice from Sherlock's past does and uses the knowledge to drug Sherlock either outright forcefully or somehow without him noticing and then coerces him to have sex
-possibly a bit/a lot drunk John walks in on a drugged Sherlock having enthusiastic loud sex with BG that does not in the least resemble a rape even though it most assuredly is (this is the reason the drug cannot be a soporific - Sherlock should appear lucid- to a drunk angry doctor at least)assumes the worst and flees
-Sherlock might vaguely remember some things(in case the drug is GHB it can happen)or not but even if he doesn't he deduces it afterwards - he is not under the impression that it is somehow his fault for having an orgasm but might be blaming himself for not anticipating it or for falling for it - he is not coping in a cold, calculated and detached manner but he is also not doubting that what happened to him was in fact a rape an assault and he feels awful, used, might not know where John is, why isn't he answering his calls, doesn't know what he wants to do about the entire thing and is generally distraught but not in any way confused about the consent aspect of the encounter
-maybe it would be best to start from the morning after - how does he tell someone?(does he tell someone or does he feel too humiliated to do so?) how does he deal with it? how does he confront John? what does Mycroft know or thinks he knows? is Lestrade supportive? sceptical? does he even come into it? does Sherlock irrationally blame John for not stopping it/realizing it/believing his own eyes, realizes he is being irrational but still cant help the anger and is frustrated at himself for it? go wild PLEASE
(yeah the angst comes from a different place here but there still could be some insecure John angsting for a bit)
omg i am so sorry for this monster but not enough to stop myself :(
*slinks away, ashamed*

P.S - if something like this exists somewhere - could you please link me to it? i honestly haven't seen it

Re: TW- non-con a trope made a bit more plausible?

Seconding! I love fics where John assumes Sherlock is cheating, but I like how it's more reasonable. Please someone fill!

Sherlock and Victor are not estranged

Sherlock talks to Victor regularly, just not in person. Maybe they've never even met in person at all, or maybe they only start talking again after Sherlock realizes that John is now his "only" friend, and he needs another friend to talk to about his less-than-platonic feelings for him.

Gen with John+Sherlock, Sherlock+Victor friendships, or John/Sherlock with the Sherlock+Victor friendship. Other than that, basically anything goes.


Anything where Sherlock is genuinely surprised to learn that John is attracted to him and interested in a relationship with him.

Bonus points if John assumed Sherlock knew even before he did.

Omegaverse/hidden kinks

For an omega with a secret kink or fetish, heats can be extra awful. If they haven't discussed their kink with their partner beforehand, it will come out; they may not act on it automatically, but they will beg for it.

And for the alpha? Even if they're not interested, they'll keep fucking them (usually), and then it's only afterwards, when everything's already been left to fester, that they have to face it.

I'd really like this with omega!Sherlock/alpha!John, but any omega-alpha (or even omega-beta or omega-omega) pairing of any sort will do. Any kinks go, too, although I would particularly love to see Daddy kink, rimming, or an exhibitionist inclination in the omega. How their partner responds is up to you.

Re: Omegaverse/hidden kinks


Squib Mycroft is Percy Weasley's favourite uncle

In ACD, Mycroft's official government position is something to do with accounting, I think.

In the Potterverse, Molly Weasley's second cousin is a muggle accountant but (quoting Ron) "we never talk about him".

I'd love to see some Mycroft/Percy interaction starting from when Percy's estranged from his family. Something where Percy mostly means well, and (BBC) Mycroft just understands where he's coming from much better than his immediate family.

Re: Squib Mycroft is Percy Weasley's favourite uncle

Seconding so hard

Sub!Sherlock punishment prompit.

Sub Sherlock, Dom John.
Sherlock being stretched and stuffed with numerous (very big, possibly) toys as a punishment.

Bonus points if he stuffs things in Sherlock, (when he is done), to keep them until he needs them. (eg. vegetables when cooking etc.)

Plugs him with huge enema.

comes in him multiple times, then plugs him, forcing him to keep it all in.

Or some combination.

Re: Sub!Sherlock punishment prompit.

You so nailed my kinks with this! What do I need to do to have this written?!

PTSD reversal

I've seen a lot of prompts/fics where John has a PTSD induced flashback and someone has to talk him out of it. I want a kind of reversal of this:

Sherlock and John tag along with Lestrade and his people from the Yard to arrest the perp in the latest case. Turns out he's an ex-soldier with a case of PTSD and access to guns, and they find themselves in a standoff when the perp has a sudden flashback. The police try to talk him down but he thinks they're enemy forces, and when they finally realize what's going on and attempt the whole "solider, stand down!" trick it doesn't work because even in his agitated and confused state of mind he can tell that they're not officers (maybe they use the wrong terminology, or their orders don't carry enough authority or something?). Cue BAMF John stepping forward to channel Captain Watson and managing to successfully talk the ex-soldier into laying down his weapon and surrendering.

Seconded so hard I think I dislocated something.

Anything ageplay/infantilism related and/or involving watersports (wetting preferred) for Sherlock/John, preferably with John acting in a caregiver/dominant role.

Doubles (and the lack thereof)

In this world, everyone is born with a double- genetically speaking, like an identical twin, but with such a strong psychic bond that they function nearly as one individual in two bodies. Usually, they'll spend their whole lives together, going into schools together and being graded on each other's performance; going into the same career, working and being promoted together; marrying the double of their double's spouse etc. If one dies, the shock is almost certain to kill the other.
Sherlock and John are exceptions.
Sherlock was one of those rare few babies born alone. Most babies born that way die within hours of being born, and in most of the world it's consider okay to kill such a baby, though in recent years reasoning has shifted from "they're clearly evil" to "it's the most merciful thing to do with them." Sherlock, however, survived. He was ostracized for much of his life and literally had to work twice as hard as anyone else for his accomplishments, but he never let that stop him.
John's double was killed in Afghanistan by a gunshot to his femoral artery in the same battle that John received his shoulder wound in. Against all odds, John survived both the shoulder wound and the psychic shock, however the loss of his double has compounded his PTSD.
I'd like to ask the filler to explore their relationship in this world- do they bond over their shared circumstance, or try to distance their situations due to the obvious differences? Is their relationship one of friends, lovers, or do they find themselves becoming bonded as the oddest pair of doubles in England?
Additional world building would be great, as would an appearance (or several) by Moriarty. Feel free to change terms/details.

Fill: How Vital are the Links (1/?)

My sister and I, you will recollect, were twins, and you know how subtle are the links that bind two souls which are so closely allied
(Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band)


John struggles half-way to consciousness, but no amount of will seems enough to get him all the way there. It’s like knowing he has to get up for a piss while being trapped in a dream of dysfunctional bizarro lavatories. It’s not his bladder that’s troubling him, though. His shoulder’s a mess of fiery agony, and he’s got a matching—a stronger-than-expected—sympathetic burn for Luke’s leg. But that’s not it either. There’s a fog; a gaping emptiness he can’t negotiate. He’s stuck in his confusion, and the world just won’t come into focus.

It’s pure, natural instinct that makes him reach out for Luke’s hand, and it’s a good instinct: his senses start to regain their usual sharpness. But. His hand closes on empty air. He must not be even so much as half-way awake after all, because that is in no way comprehensible, even by fuzzy dream-logic. His brother...


They tell him he’s been lucky. John clenches his empty hand. They smile perfunctorily, and close it around an aluminium crutch. He finds the English summer grey after Afghanistan’s shimmering heat, and his coat is too light.

He hears his old uni mates’ chatter as if his ears were full of water.

“We heard you were abroad somewhere, getting shot at,” says Mike.

“Where’s Luke got to?” asks Gabby.

John knows that if it weren’t for the fog, he’d be able to see her scoping out the park. He can barely make sense of it himself that he and Luke are not either bothdead, or (but really, bothdead does seem closer to the truth) bothhere. It’s so strange that he doubts there even exist words to describe the reality.

“London’s hard to negotiate for singletons,” he offers obliquely. A fresh wave of anger pinches at him through his stupor. “How the hell am I even going to find someone to keep a flat with?”

Apparently he mustn’t have managed his quota of six impossible things before breakfast that morning, because Mike’s surprisingly glib answer rings clear as a bell.

“You know what? you’re the second person to say that to me today.”

The three of them make their way through the green together, and then down into the bowels of Bart’s.


John would have been a fool to pass by such a rare chance to solve his problem without at least trying to get a better feel for the situation, so here he is, sitting in 221B Baker Street while Mrs Hudson pours him tea, and Mrs Turner tries to entice Sherlock with a plate of biscuits.

Mrs Hudson knows that he and Sherlock aren’t twins. “It’s all right, dearie. There’s all sorts round here.” She lowers her voice, and casts a worried sideways glance at Mrs Turner. “My husband committed suicide, so it’s just us two downstairs now. But Sherlock really is a darling boy, I promise.”

Sherlock also knows all about John; had read it in his stance and his tan and his haircut within moments of meeting him.

John, on the other hand, knows next to nothing about any of them. Nonetheless, he’s here on Mike’s recommendation, and he’s not overly superstitious. He’ll probably be willing to take the plunge regardless of how Sherlock came to be on his own... That doesn’t mean he’s not burning with curiosity, though, nor any less so when Sherlock dashes off after a police car with unholy glee, muttering about a serial murderer.

Sherlock/John, omegaverse, exhibitionism

Alpha!John is getting grief from members of Lestrate's division because Sherlock does not act at all like an Omega-sub around John or in public. It is alluded that John isn't "alpha enough" to handle Sherlock. John ignores this but it begins to upset Sherlock (who loves that John lets him call the shots when it comes to The Work and submitting in private). So Sherlock asks John, just this once, to show them all how good an alpha-dom he really is.

Re: Sherlock/John, omegaverse, exhibitionism

Omegaverse /and/ exibitionism! Please! Secinded

Non-con, Sherlock/Molly, Moriarty

As a present, Moriarty gives Molly Sherlock, naked, gagged, tied to a bed and with a big bow on his dick. Then he sits back to admire his girl.
