john/mary/sherlock-spoilers so3

John and Mary are in a sexual relationship.
John, Mary and Sherlock are in a romantic relationship.

I would love a fic where the focus lies on the romantic and emotional relationship and its development between the three, how mary fits into their dynamic, how they deal with the baby and not living together.

please no (extreme) jealousy (maybe between sherlock and the baby but not between the three) and sexual relations between sherlock and others, and maybe not put the focus on the sex or lack thereof either.

maybe they don't actually realise they are in love at first.

domesticity. affection. bickering. plotting so no-one feels excluded. mary as badass because mary is awesome. basically sign of three because it was brilliant.

Johnlock, Babysitters!John & Sherlock, Sherlock *Is* Good With Children

Mycroft entrusts his six-year-old daughter, Angelica, in the care of his baby brother and his lover for the day.

John is in shock, never having known that the British Gov't had a daughter. And he's even more shocked that she's completely, utterly *normal* - aside from her 174 IQ.

Basically, I just want a day where John is pleasantly surprised by Sherlock's competency with children, especially considering that his perceived incompetence with children is a running joke amongst the Yarders (remember Lestrade trying to keep him from freaking out the little girl in 2.03?).


This leads them to contemplating children of their own.

Alright, been looking for one like this for a while

I really want a fic in which Sherlock begins dating John, but then gets teased by Moriarty and finds something about him increasingly attractive (maybe the danger of him idk). So Sherlock gets himself caught up in a mess of sleeping with two men (nc-17 content welcome). I'm not sure how that would end up, but it's something I really want to read.

Genderbender alpha/Omega/beta

Now, I'll never tire of omega!verse Sherlock/John. and there's something very hot about a man being able to get preggers...but I wanna see the reverse.
I want to see a lady doing the impregnating.
I want some hot fem!alpha!sherl

Re: Genderbender alpha/Omega/beta

Oops, Pressed 'post' prematurely.
Basically I just want fem!alpha!sherlock getting it on with either fem!omega!john or even male omega!john. As long as there's a sexy lady alpha I'm happy
Doesn't have to include pregnancy.

Fluff! Sherlock with a following of children...

Maybe just something where kids follow Sherlock around more and more (if you make it a little angsty that he's injured that's okay) just want him holding baby Watson with Lilah (Little Favour if you're curious) and Alfie. Maybe telling them pirate stories, I don't care.

Maybe in 221B or in Surrey not too close to the apiary.
Just make it cute that Sherlock's a kid himself.

Johnlock, Character Death, TW: Suicide Attempt/Self-Harm

In the original Sherlock Holmes series, Mary died shortly after marrying Watson. Sherlock only discovered this when he returned to the flat to find that John had moved back in.

I'd like to see something similar, except for in Johnlock-fashion. John returns to the flat after Mary's death, only to find an unconscious Sherlock in bed, where he had harmed himself. Freaking out over Sherlock's unresponsive form, he promptly admits that he doesn't think he can handle losing the most important person in the world to him twice. Sherlock awakens to find John crying over him, and much h/c and healing occurs.

Re: Johnlock, Character Death, TW: Suicide Attempt/Self-Harm


The five times Lestrade contemplated defiling the British Gov't in the most delightfully delicious, deplorable manner... And the one time he actually did.

Open to ALL kinks. The lovely anon has full control here :)

Seconded so hard that I might just fill this


Ok so this was prompted here (http : //sherlockbbc-fic.livejournal . com/8651.html?thread=40583883#t40583883) and someone started to fill it but it was sadly abandoned about 2 chapters in.

Under normal circumstances Sherlock and John would NEVER admit that they want each other. John hasn't been interested in men before and Sherlock's married to his work and anyway they're best friends and don't want to screw that up. They could never find the courage to discuss it or let it happen EVER.

Then during a case a series of absolutely ridiculous 'no way in hell will that ever happen again' events occur which throw them into each other's arms. It's just one thing after another conspiring to get them turned on and naked, like the universe is saying just shag each other already! So they do. And it's HOT and romantic and they see a whole new future together.

But at the end of the case John is injured and gets amnesia and when he wakes up he's forgotten the entire previous day. Permanently, it would seem. As far as he knows he and Sherlock are still just friends. Sherlock is devastated, but feels he can't tell John what really happened. He's convinced that John will either think he's lying or crazy and be all weirded out and leave. And Sherlock doesn't dare simply make a move on John because he's certain that it was only the cumulative effect of those events which got John in the mindset to take a chance on him in the first place.

Cue desperate Sherlock repeatedly attempting, and spectacularly and embarrassingly failing, to recreate the outrageous chain of events that led to their magical night together. A happy ending would be lovely.

So what kind of events you might ask? Unintentional consumption of alcohol and aphrodisiacs. Getting trapped in a bedroom that's like something out of a romance novel and it's covered floor to ceiling with homoerotic art. One of them absentmindedly patting out a fire on the other's trousers and unintentional groping ensues. One of them jumping on the other to push them out of sight of a bad guy. Accidentally falling into a jacuzzi necessitating removal of soggy clothing. Basically just things that herd them into each other's trousers.

TL;DR Because of a series of ridiculously serendipitous and sexually-charged events, John and Sherlock finally shag. Then John gets amnesia and forgets their one night together and thinks they are still just friends. Heartbroken, Sherlock secretly attempts to recreate the series of outrageous events so that their life-changing night can happen all over again.

Re: reprompt

This sounds fun. I could use fun. Seconded.

John is a were!animal and goes feral post-riechenbach

(Not series 3 compliant)

John is a were!animal (up to filler what animal though I would prefer something like an ordinary dog or cat as opposed to wolf or something supernatural) and after Sherlock jumps he basically decides to just give up on being human and stay an animal. No one really worries when he disappears: he's grieving, he's isolated himself, and if people occasionally wonder huh, wonder whatever happened to him... well, they never bother to follow through on the thought.

So John disappears into the underbelly of London and loses himself.

Then Sherlock comes back and realised no ones knows where he is (this is why I'd prefer an ordinary animal... People will notice a big blonde wolf running about but what's one more stray cat or dog?).

Que Sherlock going to outrageous lengths to find John (ranging from simply wandering the park and streets calling for him to actively trying to look at every single animal in London).

- When Sherlock returns to London, he stays with the homeless network at first. He adopts a cat/dog/john without either of them recognise each other. Maybe Sherlock doesn't know what kind of animal he's looking for and John has gone so feral that, while he recognises this particular human as "friend", he has no idea what the significance of that would be.

- While feral, John still subconsciously watches out for his friends. Maybe cat!John visits Molly/Mrs. Hudson when he can't find anything to eat or dog!John stops Lestrade from getting stabbed at a crime scene or a drunk!lestrade from getting mugged on the way home.

- He constantly uses Anderson and/or Donovan's front doorstep as a bathroom.

TL;DR: John is a were!animal and goes feral post-riechenbach. Sherlock must find him and remind him that he's human.

Re: John is a were!animal and goes feral post-riechenbach

This sounds interesting. Seconded.

Mary's a retired slayer. Buffy's her BFF, Buffy/Sherlock/, John/Mary, Buffy/Sherlock/John/Mary,

Mary's Maid of Honor actually turns out to be one of her nearest and dearest friends, Buffy Summers. Mary was a potential called during that day on the Hellmouth, but she really wanted to step away from the slaying lifestyle and live a normal life now that there are so many slayers out here.

So even after parting with the Council, Mary still held onto a great friendship with the senior slayer who shared her sense of humor. It's a friendship for life.

The woman Sherlock spends the wedding with is none other than Buffy herself, and just as Mary and John plotted, they get along like a house on fire.

All, of course, with a possibly big polyamorous ending where all are happy.

Jim/Sherlock/John, Mycroft- Dysfunctional Relationships, polygamy, h/c, angst, kidnapping

Sherlock is kidnapped by an enemy of Mycroft. Even with all his resources, Mycroft can't find him. As a last resort, John manages to find or contact Moriarty and convince him to help him find and rescue Sherlock. When they find him, Sherlock isn't completely broken, but he's still obviously traumatized by the incident. He won't talk to Mycroft, John, or a shrink. The only person he will talk to is Moriarty. Partly because Moriarty's the person who rescued him and partly because he understands the way Sherlock's mind works, Sherlock finds he can talk to him.

Moriarty wants to help Sherlock, partly because he sees him as a worthy adversary and partly because, if Sherlock can be reduced to this, then so can Moriarty and Moriarty needs to believe that, should something ever happen, he can also be fixed.

Watson's hurt that his lover can't talk to him, but he also kind of understands and just wants Sherlock to get better. So, reluctantly, he asks Jim to move in with them. Just until Sherlock gets better.

It doesn't start as Jim/Sherlock/John, or even, Jim/Sherlock or Jim/John. But somehow, they grow into a relationship where they all deeply care for one another or, in Jim's case, view the others as his possessions.

Re: Jim/Sherlock/John, Mycroft- Dysfunctional Relationships, polygamy, h/c, angst, kidnapping

oh wow. SECONDING.

I just really really want college au john & sherlock are dorm mates or something and mary takes an interest in them both and sherlock is surprised to find he's interested in her and john, too. Or high school au even, I'm not picky. Just some young johnlockary.

yes please

So Molly's Sherlock-lite is moving in. With a dog.

What if Tom's abusive -- not violent, but aiming to control every area of Molly's life. So a few weeks later she's got a boyfriend, a dog instead of a cat (or a dog her cat can't stand), and is looking round for Tom's opinion on everything. Maybe her friends have to save her from her epic man-choosing abilities, again.

Fix-It, Please

Can I please get some fix-it, anything? I don't care what way, shape or form as long as it ends in John actually being with Sherlock. All I'm seeing seems to be either John/Mary with a heartbroken Sherlock or threesomes, neither of which are really my cup of tea. So I'd be happy for anything else, honestly.

Re: Fix-It, Please

Oh yes please! Finally someone's requesting this! (While Mary seems cool and all I don't wanna read about her constantly!)

Soulmates AU angst

Soulmates AU

John has two soulmates on each of his hands. One is Sherlock and the other is Mary.

i am suffering...

... and misery loves company.

I'm suffering badly from chronic pain right now and I'd love some fic in which a character (any is fine) also suffers from this.

(lupus is the cause of my pain but that doesn't necessarily have to be the cause in the fill)

Re: i am suffering...

I know this is a little belated but I feel your pain and I also want this with the force of hellfire.

(For me it is hypermobility syndrome and fibro)

Sherlock/John/Mary - dom!Sherlock, dom!Mary and sub!John

I just want both Sherlock and Mary dom-ing the hell out of sub!John.

+ John being worried about Sherlock and Mary fighting over who gets to be his dom, but the two of them immediately agreeing to work in tandem
++ Sherlock and Mary casually discussing all of their plans for John aloud while he's trying to make tea or write or something
+++ Someone else (Lestrade, Sally, Molly, etc) being completely confused about their relationship

Sherlock saves John - always (possible spoilers for the finale?)

Basically Something Happens (Mary kills Magnussen and has to go on the run or dies in the attempt, even with Sherlock tryng to protect her - it's fine if you pretend baby is a ruse)

John blames Sherlock, and starts gambling to cope with his depression.

Sherlock might keep tabs on him even if he doesn't interfere - only when John needs him most.
Bonus points for even quite a bit broken!Sherlock saving John.

Sherlock is given a choice...

The villain of the season (anon has no preference it can be Moran, Moriarty returned, Magnussen) makes Sherlock choose between Mary, John and Mycroft. Only one can live.

Anon would very much like it if John is the only one aware of this choice (and he'd obv want Sherlock to choose Mary) whether Mycroft and Mary are unconscious/targeted by a sniper whatever.

Can be during/after season 3

+ 100 if Lestrade and/or Molly is present
+ 100000000000 if someone other than Sherlock saves the day, maybe mummy Holmes?

Re: Sherlock is given a choice...


Autistic!Sherlock - spoilers for sign of three. john/sherlocl/mary

Sherlock has a meltdown while at Johns and Mary wedding because of all the sensory input. Mary is the first to notice and takes him to a spare room to calm down, John soon joining them.

Also, I'm completely fine with any sexy after-math.

Bonus if Mary hugs Sherlock and rocks him till he calms down

Hi there, I wrote this for you. Didn't manage to get your bonuses in, but I hope you'll enjoy it despite that.


Whenever Sherlock would stop thinking about it, his right hand would start gripping and releasing, almost as if it had its own separate brain. He wished for what must have been the 50th time that day that it was his left hand rather than his right that he preferred to stim with, but old habits die hard, as the saying goes, and he pushed himself through the meeting and greeting and bloody handshaking for as long as he could manage before he went to hide in the loo for a bit. John wouldn't even notice his absence, there were so many people everywhere.

He shut the door to the stall and locked it, leaning back against it and taking several deep breaths. He relaxed and let his hand do its thing, concentrating on the feel of the skin of his palm as it repeatedly touched his fingertips. His eyes closed and he sank deep down into the calm place in his mind that he reserved for the most stressful situations, a place he had visited far too often in the past two-and-a-half years. It was getting a little too easy to settle into this silent place, and he sometimes found he'd lost unexpected amounts of time when he emerged again.

But that wouldn't happen today. Not on John's wedding day. He began to count the number of times that his hand clenched and unclenched, using that as a rough estimate of how long he was spending getting himself calmed and centred. It had been only a little over four minutes when the door to the loo opened and two loud guests came bursting in, jarring Sherlock from his mental retreat. Well, that was long enough, anyway, he told himself, and emerged from the stall, pausing to wash his hands for the sake of appearances before making his way out into the chaotic mob of humanity again.

He made it successfully through most of his speech, or so John assured him, and didn't have much time to worry about himself or his own stress level once he realised that there was something very wrong going on amongst the guests. He muscled through the deductions neccessary to ensure that John's wedding day would not turn disastrous, using every remaining reserve of mental stamina to sort through the overwheling amount of data, and alerted Major Sholto as discreetly as possible that he was in grave danger. He darted upstairs after the man, John following, and Mary, too, and his mind was feeling shaky and his veneer of calm was stretched painfully thin - he was actually stimming full-on now, the way he had as a child before Mycroft had advised him to find another way of doing it, shaking his hand out as if it had fallen asleep - but John needed him to solve this problem, to save Sholto's life, because John loved the man, and how could Sherlock refuse when he had let John down so badly by letting him think that he himself was dead? He had to do this.

Molly/Tom, dysfunctional D/S relationship and/or abuse

Minor spoilers for 3.02 ahead!

Did anyone else notice that Molly stabbed Tom's leg with a fork when he embarrassed her at the wedding? And the look on his face when she told him to sit down..! He looked a bit scared, I thought, and certainly not happy.

I'd love to see something about this being a regular occurrence for them. Maybe Molly got interested in Domming during that business with Irene, but she and Tom are both new to it and haven't negotiated properly? Maybe Molly's just a bit controlling and has a temper?

What I would really love is if Lestrade noticed that business with the fork and does something about it - mentions it to Sherlock and asks him to keep an eye out, or just takes Tom aside for a quiet chat or something.

Anything in the Omegaverse about Sherlock, John and Mary

I would love to see any Omegaverse fic about Sherlock, John, and Mary. Could be two alphas and an omega, or an alpha and a beta and an omega, or three omegas. Doesn't have to be a threesome fic.

Just please give me your headcanons for their Omegaverse dynamic.

"What do tongues taste like?"

Little!Sherlock has a question and decides to run an experiment. Mom/Dad/Mycroft/??? is very surprised.


(Sherlock is too young to know that not all kisses are chaste; he and the other person just stick out their tongues and touch tongues, and Sherlock realizes that the person's tongue tastes like what they last ate/drank.)

I'd love to see sweet brotherly fluff, but if the tasting isn't with Mycroft, bonus for Sherlock, who thinks that he might be the only person in the world who's discovered what tongues taste like, later proudly announcing his findings to the family only for Mycroft to shoot him down. ("Obviously her tongue tastes like coffee, Mummy just drank a cup.")

If you want, you could make this part of some bigger "Sherlock tastes everything from dirt to snow to yellow snow" taste curiosity, hopefully somewhere along the way licking something cold (ice cream, street light) and getting his tongue stuck, but I'm mainly looking for fluffiness of Sherlock being completely innocent and and sticking out his tongue and the other person being amused and indulging him =P

Re: "What do tongues taste like?"

Oh yeah! This would also be so cute with little John :D

Mystrade, Anthea is Mycroft's adopted daughter

Excuse me while I mash several head canons and stray thoughts together.

Everyone believed Lestrade had met Mycroft shortly after he started working with Sherlock. Honestly, they'd met several years prior and in a much more... irregular fashion.

During the earlier years of Mycroft's climb to power, he finds an abandoned baby girl one night. The plan is to hand her off to care services, but, for what ever reason, he gets stuck caring for her and ends up attached.

Mycroft does his best to keep her a secret from those who would seek to use little Anthea against him, but someone does eventually find out. One day on the way to school, they kill the driver, but Anthea manages to get away and runs into Lestrade. Lestrade does his best to keep this little girl safe as random technology and homeless people help them along the way.

TLDR: Mycroft adopts Anthea. These dickwads try to kidnap her and BAMF!Lestrade to the rescue with helpful CCTV cameras and homeless network. Which leads to Mystrade family.

the old bed sharing trope with Asexual!Sherlock

Gen or relationship, but no sex.

Sharing a warm bed with John makes Sherlock happier than what he's been in years. It starts off as one of those hotel B&B mix ups but it carries on, because it doesn't bother them.

Bonus points for if Sherlock thinks the sleeping arrangement bothers John
Double bonus points for Mrs Hudson's opinion.

No recs. Thank you!
