First Kidnapping (TW: possible violence)

No anon because no shame(:

So every Kidnapping fic I've read have the boys quite accustomed to being kidnapped. So my idea is: Sherlock is kidnapped, and it's John's first time experiencing Sherlock being kidnapped.

Maybe he's completely freaked out maybe he doesn't really understand what's going on maybe Sherlock is used to being kidnapped maybe he's not - Anything, I just want John's first time saving Sherlock from kidnappers and the aftermath.

Thank you all!

Re: First Kidnapping (TW: possible violence)


tw: Torture

I don't even know what is wrong with me anymore. This was brought about by a rewatching of Hounds and rereading of Mockingjay.

We've seen plenty of fics where John gets caught and/or tortured, yes? (I heartily recommend Helicidae's fic Two Things, which physically hurt to read.) Well, what if Sherlock gets caught immediately after the Fall?

Let's assume that he didn't use a dummy and for some medical miracle or another fell onto the pavement himself. Unfortunately, Moriarty's right hand man-slash-unrequited lover, Sebastian Moran, had gone bonkers at Jim killing himself. So he got thugs (or even better, single-handedly) overpower Molly (and ostensibly Mycroft's people guarding Sherlock) and cart an unconscious Sherlock out of St. Barts, threw him in a cell somewhere and started having his merry way with the detective, torturing him both physically and psychologically (Drugs optional, but no rape whatsoever please. I know it's reasonable, but I have been assaulted myself and cannot bear to read about it).

Some reasonable time later (three weeks?), Mycroft's black car took John to a facility - and what did they find there? An utterly broken, nervous, mangled - but still breathing - wreck of a man, bearing almost no resemblance to John's "recently deceased" flatmate.

The fic does not have to focus overmuch on the torture, just a few glimpses on how dark Moran is and how Sherlock slowly breaks. The real focus is John's journey in getting his friend back - the pain, suffering, frustration, and most importantly the joy at every tiny step the detective makes towards healing.

I'd love you forever if you involve Mary too; as Sherlock's nurse perhaps? And no bashing of her, please - eventual John/Mary would be stellar.

tl;dr: Sherlock gets caught, tortured by Moran immediately post-Fall as revenge for Jim dying & returned to John a complete mess. Can he, with the help of his friends, family and a pretty, remarkable nurse named Mary Morstan bring the detective back to life again?
Ships: Unrequited Moran/Moriarty, gen Sherlock/John, slowly developing John/Mary.

John/Sherlock: "Copious Amounts of Buttplugs"

At some point, John received a large collection of buttplugs in different sizes and colours as a joke. Really, it wasn't meant as anything else, and he kind of chuckled and shoved them under the bed, then forgot about them.

One day, Sherlock finds them. He knows they're a joke, sure, but oh, he is going to put them to use anyway, and make John appreciate his gift.

(Could be dub-con, if you like. I'd prefer John be the one getting plugged.)

Re: John/Sherlock: "Copious Amounts of Buttplugs"

Oh yes! Seconding anything involving Johnlock and butt plugs a million times!

Sherlock says that he sometimes doesn't talk for days on end but we haven't seen that yet. So bascailly, Sherlock just wakes up one day and doesn't talk for the rest of the week. John tries to go on the day as normal as he can but can't help wanting to get Sherlock to speak. Even if it's one word.

So John gets Sherlock to bed and has sex with him. Licking him everywhere, stroking, trying to make Sherlock beg.

Hell yes!

Sherlock finds fanfics about himself

So we know that Sherlock's an "internet phenomenon". Consequently people are bound to write fanfiction about him. Just imagine him finding deliciously hot (Johnlock) smut on the internets. Up to author how he deals with that.

Greg doesn't get the sympathy he deserves/needs after Sherlock jumps

Greg and Sherlock were a couple and everyone knew they were together when Sherlock jumped. However, in the aftermath of Sherlock's 'death', everybody is more concerned with how John is coping with the loss of his friend and flatmate. Of course, he's bound to be upset too so Greg doesn't say anything and quietly keeps himself to himself.

It's a few weeks before anybody thinks to check how Lestrade is dealing with it - and they discover he's not doing too great.

Re: Greg doesn't get the sympathy he deserves/needs after Sherlock jumps

Seconded because I NEED THIS PROMPT like burning

Lestrade is an Unpresented in A/O-verse

Not really sure what I want here, other than I thought it might be interesting for someone of Lestrade's age to be unpersented in an Alpha/Omega universe. Like, what challenges would someone who was Unpresented face?

Can be gen, but I also support Sherstrade, Johnstrade, SherJohnStrade, Molly/Lestrade, and Lestrade/Wife.

Alternate Universe - Figure Skating (Or Ice Dancing, idk what Brits call it)

So I know this has been done like twice now (that I know of, once with Tennis and once with Baseball) but hear me out:
Sherlock is a world famous skater and John was once famous or is a retired skater who coaches now (or if you can think of something else that works, go for it).
Your capable hands can take it from here.

Mind Palace

Sherlock has lost something important in his mind palace and can't get it back. He invents a drug like the one in Inception and John goes into his mind to find it. While John's there, he makes some... discoveries.

(I just want a fic in Sherlock's mind palace ok?)

Re: Mind Palace

RTYI? It takes place in Sherlock's mind palace, although not quite what you requested.

D/s fic that incorporates scenes from the show

- John fetching Sherlock's phone from his jacket pocket, etc.

When Sherlock asks John about the trainers he refers to Sherlock humiliating him, that would be awesome as well.

please consensual if not safe or sane (which would be OOC)

I would love first person POV but really anything like this would be so appreciated.

Re: D/s fic that incorporates scenes from the show

Totally my cup of tea. I love writing D/s and first person. But, it may take a while. Mind if I spin it as helping John transition back to civilian life from the army?

Possible Dark!Sherlock

Sherlock tells John he gets his body parts from the morgue. What if he's lying? What if Molly's infatuation was just a ruse to make John think that she'd willingly give him severed thumbs and heads?

I'm visioning John and Sherlock having a domestic, perhaps over a ruined experiment, and unbeknownst to Sherlock, John tries to apologize by replacing the limb he was experimenting on. He goes to Molly and she is utterly confused about the whole ordeal saying she's never given him anything.

I'll leave it up to you how John reacts, and where Sherlock gets his supplies. I'd just like to see John reacting to the possibility that his flatmate might be a murderer after all.

P.S RTYI's would be lovely too

possible tw for sexism, i guess?

A male character makes a sexist remark as a joke, inadvertently offending a female character. She calls him out on his bullshit.

(Lestrade and Sally are my personal faves but literally anyone is fine.)

((RTMI: any fic dealing with privilege and discrimination - sexism, racism, ableism, etc etc.))

Sebastian/Jim, knotting

Omegaverse with alpha!Seb and omega!Jim. They're mated and perfectly content with each other, except for one thing. When Jim goes into heat and Sebastian knots him, the knot takes forever to shrink back down again. Sebastian is unbearably smug about it and enjoys how it makes Jim squirm and huff, and he especially loves the moment when Jim finally, reluctantly gives in and quietens, and somehow resembles the picture perfect stereotype of the submissive omega.

Sally Donovan - Its a wonderful life

a few years after Sherlock´s fall: Sally is umemployed and alone, Anderson is back with his wife and due to her role in Sherlock´s fall people don´t talk to her and/ or she has stopped talking to people herself. Wishing she would have never been born finally at christmas she decides to end it all, gets drunk and decides to jump off Barts.

But on the roof there is suddenly Sherlock Holmes trying to hold her back. He proceeds to show her what would have happened if indeed she wouldn´t have been born and how she was important to Lestrade, his team and even Sherlock himself.

Up to you if when Sherlock comes back it is revealed that it really was Sherlock talking Sally down or if it was just her imagination.

Re: Sally Donovan - Its a wonderful life

Lovely prompt is lovely.

Pornstar AU

Pornstar AU.
Porn actor Sherlock has creafted a career as the most aloof top in the business. He's got a dedicated fanbase built round the persona of being a cold and slightly sadistic dom in a string of dub-con fantasy style flicks. He's particularly popular for taking the dominant role in 'reluctant straight guy gets fucked in the ass and learns to love being a sub' type movies.

He's also a demanding diva on set and he never, ever bottoms. Not professionally, and certainly not in his private life.

Until along comes John Watson. New to the industry, Sherlock is unimpressed at first. Until the cameras start rolling on what's meant to be yet another by the numbers skin flick, and he finds himself on the recieving end of a personality far more more naturally dominant than his own. He's not quite sure how he ends up with his arse in the air begging for John's cock, because that definitely wasn't in the script, but the director's letting it roll in the name of pornographic gold and Sherlock might have finally found a co-star he'd be willing to work with more than once.

Re: Pornstar AU

Oh god yes

Re: Pornstar AU (Anonymous) Expand
Sherlock is a Warlock who was somehow duped into a contract of servitude many, many years ago. Some of his masters have treated him like a pet, others have treated him like a tool...and he finds that old habits die hard. John is just a normal bloke who finds himself somehow through into this harsher side of London and in possession of Sherlock's contract. They end up going after Moriarty, a sorcerer with a dark agenda who is responsible for Sherlock's current predicament in the first place.

(In my head, I'd love to see Warlocks being the nearly immortal, half-demon creatures they are in the Mortal Instruments. And I see sorcerers as having made contracts with demons but holding no actual powers or abilities themselves.)

Anime crossover: Kill la kill/Sherlock

Considering that Sherlock is a fighter/BAMF well...

This anime:

Sherlock: Ryuko Matoi
John: Mako Mankanshoku
The skull: Senketsu
Mycroft: Aikuro Mikisugi
Moriarty: Satsuki Kiryuin

Honnouji Academy Elite Four: whatever the writer wants.

Sherlock is investing the death of "Mummy Holmes" and gets involved with something he never expected when he finds the skull in his mother and father's mansion basement.

Bonus: Sherlock's outfit (Kamui Senketsu) is the male equivalent version of the one from the show (really tight, dat bulge, etc.) and he hates it.

Misery, Stephen King film inspired!

Please can I have a fic where after Sherlock's presumed death Mrs Hudson will do anything to keep John safe. She can't just let him leave, so keeping him against his will is for his own good....

Christmas Fic with a twist

This takes place the first christmas after Sherlock jumps.
Mummy Holmes invites John and Lestrades team to the Holmes Christmas party.

Basically, I just want a bit of chaos, John figuring out why Sherlock avoids Christmas at home but still says, "It´s Christmas" when something really nice happens, a bit of fluff and love and they remembering Sherlock with the sort of bittersweetness that comes with fond memories of someone you´ve lost.

Bonus: If Sherlocks mother never changed her name after she married Daddy Holmes and noone at first having any idea who this e.g. Madleine Vernet is.

Sherlock/John reunion, sort of

Sherlock in disguise chews out John for getting engaged in his absence. Basically, that scene from The Princess Bride.

when sherlock comes back and john has forgiven him and starts spending more time with him again he realizes that he looks way unhealthy. before the fall he was a bit underweight but it was nothing dangerous, but now john is starting to really worry for his health and starts trying to feed him up but its difficult since they no longer live together and sherlock eventually catches on to what john is trying to do and works towards it himself when john isnt there in the hopes that john will start living with him again or something
(and then maybe sherlock gets to be a bit more on the chubby side and he doesnt really mind and neither does john and maybe things didnt work out with john and mary and he ends up with sherlock and really likes his tummy ???)

Disguised!Sherlock / John

After The Fall Sherlock's realizes he's in love with John and misses him so much he can barely focus on getting rid off Moriarty's men. So he decides to put his acting skills to good use, dress up as somebody else, meet John in a pub, get him drunk and take him to bed.

Please no non-con, Mary or established Johnlock relationship if possible.

Bonus for intoxicated John getting slightly emotional, remarking how this stranger reminds him of Sherlock and how much he's missed his former flatmate.

Re: Disguised!Sherlock / John



Ashamed of a kink

Sherlock and John keep having hot, mutually-satisfying kinky sex. But the next morning Sherlock refuses to look John in the eye, picks fights, and is generally an even more grumpy bastard than usual.

Basically he loves submitting to John but is too embarrassed the next day to admit he loved licking John's boots, etc.

Maybe a happy ending where John takes care of him with copious aftercare and he's ok.

Bonus: any kind of military kink, bootlicking.

Re: Ashamed of a kink

Seconded please. I really want to see this.

Minisode John/Anderson

Holy craaaaap. Long prompt, but a good one.

*spoliers of the prequal mini episode BBC released on youtube*

Anderson is so passionate about Sherlock being alive. He NEEDS Sherlock to be alive. This is why:

I want a fill where he approaches John to tell him why he thinks Sherlock is alive, but he can't actually bring himself to say anything when he sees how wrecked John is over his death. Instead of bringing up Sherlock, he comforts him. This leads to a friendship and then, over time, a relationship. Because Anderson has learned to see and observe- he's no Sherlock, but he's good. And John likes the way he reminds him of Sherlock and the way Anderson's learned to think for himself.

But Anderson knows that John's still devastated. So he tries to convince Lestrade that Sherlock is alive because Anderson NEEDS Sherlock to be alive so that John can be happy again. Lestrade obviously doesn't believe him.

Then Sherlock comes back. And Anderson's so nervous because he had been hoping for so long and believing and needing for him to return- but he doesn't know what to say to him, especially since he's in a relationship with John now.

Then Sherlock says to him one day, "Thank you. For believing in me." While Anderson is speechless, Sherlock continues. "And thank you for taking care of my best friend when I...couldn't." Because Lestrade told Sherlock the whole story, and Sherlock is overwhelmed by how this much new Anderson has changed for the better.

John/New Anderson Mini Episode

Inspired by a prompt. So kinda similar but not really. Spoilers for the mini episode.

So Anderson tried convincing Lestrade that Sherlock is alive but is shot down. But he doesn't give up. Next, he goes to John to try and explain his research.

John is so overwhelmed and relieved by the proof that there's a chance that Sherlock is alive, he kisses Anderson.

No Mary please. And let's assume that Sally left/was dumped because of Anderson's obsession with proving Sherlock's alive.
