Holmescest Mindgames and manipulation

Mycroft has always been a step ahead of him. Always smarter, always more put together, always more favoured by the parents. He sees through everything Sherlock does, and Sherlock hates it. Until, one day Sherlock has a bit of a revelation - he sees Mycroft watching him, a peculiar half guilty expression on his face. And Sherlock realises: Mycroft is attracted to him. Finally Sherlock has something he can use to manipulate/taunt/blackmail his perfect older brother with. Something to make him lose his implacable cool.....

Go with this where you will! Anything goes.

Re: Holmescest Mindgames and manipulation

YES! More Holmescest, please. :D

Sherlock characters as comedians

From a post on the rant meme.

The characters aren't detectives and criminals and police and public servants: they're stand up comedians.

I love the idea of Sherlock being a David Mitchell type (posh and pissed off at everything) or Frankie Boyle type (says stuff just to get a reaction).

Moriarty as a Jimmy Carr, Mycroft as a Stephen Fry, Lestrade as an Adam Hills, Mrs Hudson as a Denise Scott, Dimmock as a Josh Thomas or Michael McIntyre.

And no one could really decide on who John would be like.

Go wild! Maybe they're all on Mock the Week or 8 Out of Ten Cats or the Big Fat Quiz or Comic Relief or even Graham Norton. I just really love this idea.

Re: Sherlock characters as comedians


Possible Abused John?

Or maybe not.

How about Sherlock starts to notice that John always buttons his shirts up to the top, and never wears shirtsleeves and such. He's always covered up. He even beings to notice John's reluctance to touch. At first he thought it had something to do with his military history, but now he is beginning to suspect that John was abused (physically or sexually) at some point in his life.

Anything along the lines of this...

Re: Possible Abused John?

I would love to read this.

Sherlock's Violin

Sherlock's violin isn't a Stradivari, but a Guarneri.
(Just roll with it, okay?)

Mini crack fill

"What do you mean it's not a Stradivari?" Sherlock asked with an almost imperceptible wobble in his voice. "I've been playing it for years! I've handled both Stradivari and Guarneri violins before, of course I can tell the difference between them!"

"And you handled the Guarneri for approximately 2 minutes before it was wrested away from you by the good Detective Inspector, yes? As for the Stradivari, it was...a fake." Mycroft replied apologetically.

John is starting to feel that ache in his neck that warns him when Sherlock is about to get into a strop. It's going to be a mighty big strop this time, John predicts miserably. 

Sherlock's eyes were starting to gain a wild edge to them the longer he stared at his violin. But it's not just Sherlock's violin now, oh no. It's a Guarneri violin. All those times he had played her, did it mean that he was the one being played instead? All those tunes they had carelessly composed, would they even sound the same, now that he has known her true nature? And that bond he felt their first night together...he couldn't bear thinking about it. This line of thought is completely unacceptable. Delete, empty every thought into the damned recycling bin of his hard drive, Sherlock thinks fiercely. 

John stares at Mycroft staring at Sherlock staring at his violin for a full minute. 

All of a sudden, Sherlock dropped the violin and bow on the sofa where it landed like how a spurned lover in a B-grade movie would have fallen to the floor, and stalked into his room, pale-blue night fluttering theatrically behind him. The door slammed shut.

Both Mycroft and John heaved a sigh of relief. 

"That went better than expected." Mycroft beamed. 

"Anything to stop him playing that blasted violin. It's been three days! Three days of nonstop Vivaldi, Handel, and cat screech!" John looked a little haunted. 

"But this may not be the end." Mycroft says cryptically. 

"I can handle him sulking in silence. A lesser evil, I'll say."

Sherlock's head popped out of his room. 

"John! Look what I found!" Sherlock announced gleefully. He held up a bagpipe. 

Dear lord, John thought.

John and Mary would dearly love to have a child together. They try for some time, but it turns out that while John is more than adequately sexually potent, his sperm count is less than five percent of normal. He can't father a child.

Mary's fond of Sherlock. Sherlock's surprised at how much he likes Mary. And John realizes that nothing would please him more than for his child to be Sherlock's.

Turkey-baster or the organic way, writer's discretion. Although it would be nice for Sherlock -- in fact, all three -- to be very eager that this baby be conceived in John's and Mary's marriage bed.

tl;dr: John can't father a child. Sherlock steps up.

Yes, please!

Crack: Trope!John searches the multiverse for his Trope!Sherlock

Trope!John wakes up one morning only to discover that, thanks to some cosmic mix-up, he's got the wrong Trope!Sherlock. So John enters in & out of various fanfics/worlds to find his matching Trope!Sherlock. Sherlock/John, but 100% okay if there are other pairings in the various worlds John visits.

Re: Crack: Trope!John searches the multiverse for his Trope!Sherlock

Oh I really really want to read this.

I loved this! It totally ripped out my heart and then stomped on it (in a good way!)

Sherlock--pushy bottom

Sherlock used to be a pushy bottom but his new boyfriend, John, will have none of it. Sherlock has never had a dom as subtle but exacting as John. It changes everything.

Gen or John/Sherlock/Lestrade, Be Your Support, possible Character Death

Sherlock and Mycroft fight all the time, but when Mycroft doesn't call, doesn't randomly pop in, and strangest of all hasn't kidnapped John in weeks, Sherlock is worried.

When Greg gets called out for a body that roughly matches the description of a certain umbrella bearing man, the first person he calls is John because John's the most likely to read Sherlock's mood.

The only people he allows near the scene are Sally and Anderson, because as much as they and Sherlock don't get along, they're the most familiar to him, and the least likely to be driven to tears by his attitude.

Sherlock has a Major breakdown.

I'll leave it to the Author's descretion whether or not the body actually is Mycroft or not, it could also be a trick by Moriarty who's abducted Mycroft, or Mycroft needed to fake his own death, as long as, at least for a while, Sherlock truly believes his brother is dead, and John and Greg support him as best as possible through his loss.

Molly & Moriarty, Warnings: incest, underage

Molly and Moriarty in the way of India and Charlie from Stoker(2013).

Re: Molly & Moriarty, Warnings: incest, underage

Oh god, please! Seconded!

years after the fall, sherlock comes back...IN DISGUISE!

john sees through the disguise immediately but pretends he doesnt recognize the man.

and if he happens to mention his old friend sherlock...

Sherlock returning - Empty House style

(Inspired by the prompt above)

I'd love to see a BBC version of Sherlock returning in the Granada-Holmes series with Jeremy Brett. See video here: (scene starts at about 15:30)

Would love this to include:
- Sherlock in disguise
- John fainting
- Sherlock caressing his face to wake him up ;)
- John showing Sherlock something he kept to remember his (boy)friend (please no Mary)
- John tucking Sherlock in

Please try to keep this as IC for the BBC characters as possible (It's fine to not include all or change something). I just hope this gets filled on way or another :)

John/OCF or John/AU!Mary - TW: emotional/domestic/sexual abused John

In the time Sherlock's been away, John's dated a few women before landing his new GF (OCF or AU!Mary). Things start out fine, but slowly turn abusive. Small things at first, a slap or "accidental" fingernail scrape. John overlooks these things but as they turn up in the bedroom, and become much more aggressive it's harder to. Whenever John tries to subdue her (he doesn't "fight" back, necessarily) she finds it even more arousing.

The relationship gets to the point where John's incredibly ashamed of still being with her, but even moreso that he's "letting this happen", being a doctor and military man. When she's forcibly arousing him and controlling him with sex, this is the couple Sherlock finds when he returns.

And he, obviously, knows everything with John mentioning a word.

Bonus if it's not John/Sherlock in the end, but I am a shipper, just would prefer it not in this story. Unless you end up just writing it that way, that's ok too. :)

Re: John/OCF or John/AU!Mary - TW: emotional/domestic/sexual abused John

Seconded! I also think it would be even more interesting if it wasn't Johnlock in the end.

Crossover "Frasier" - John/Daphne Moon

Either meeting via blind date or maybe Daphne was John's physical therapist after he returned from war.

Re: Crossover "Frasier" - John/Daphne Moon

I love you,prompter.This is perfect

Sherlock goes to an escort to learn sex b/c he wants to be good for John, misunderstanding happens

Things between John and Sherlock steadily become more flirtatious. John assumes they're ramping up to a relationship, maybe they've even said as much, but then Sherlock is spending more time away from home and when John leaves early from a shift at the surgery, Sherlock is clearly in bed with another man. A tall, handsome stranger leaves the flat a bit later, and Sherlock plays it off; John is hurt/confused/angry at being led on.

Sherlock is confused that John is cold to him. He'd had sex with an escort because he didn't know anything about sex and he wanted to be good for John before taking their relationship to the next level.

Bonus if Sherlock's only previous relationship ended b/c the other person was put off by his lack of experience.

TL;DR : Sherlock goes to an escort to learn sex b/c he's intimidated by John's rep, wants to be good for him, John finds out he went to the escort but doesn't know why, is hurt.

Re: Sherlock goes to an escort to learn sex b/c he wants to be good for John, misunderstanding happe

I hope I'll have time in a week or so to write it.

i have a headcanon where mycroft was a skinny child and sherlock was more on the chubbier side because mycroft used to have a fast metabolism and sherlock had a slow one. but mycrofts ended up slowing down with how much he was eating and sherlock started eating less and healthier foods, even though he has a total sweet tooth
and i would really like to see a fic that has to do with that or maybe that john or lestrade or molly start making sherlock eat or he's not allowed to go to cases/the morgue and he never did anything to speed up his metabolism so its still slow and yeah

Sherlock--world's worst hooker.

"You wanna party? 500 for kissing, 10,000 for snuggling. End of list."

Crack or not.

Re: Sherlock--world's worst hooker.

Ha ha this is great! I'm onto it!

John's prostate is ticklish

Because I want more sexy!John with a huge dose of adorableness with it...

Whenever John's prostate is stimulated, John giggles. Which, to his partner (preferably Sherlock or Moriarty or both), is the most adorable thing to happen during sex.

Re: John's prostate is ticklish

Omg this is so cute!

Cabin Pressure crossover

In which Sherlock did die. For a minute.

The moment he landed on the pavement, so did a Lockheed McDonnell 312 slam onto the runway and a flying piece of debris into the Captain.

But some well-meaning deity/god/mythical feature intervened because it wasn't their time to die yet.
So they came back to life.

A week later, Molly Hooper had to deal with a frantic man named Martin Crieff trapped inside the detective, and the MJN crew with a twat named Sherlock Holmes inside their captain.


Re: Cabin Pressure crossover

Oh my god yes seconded

And he thought it was bad the first time around.

Going through puberty as an adult is a bitch.

Mark Hooper is hornier than he has ever been in his life.

Mycroft obliges.

Re: And he thought it was bad the first time around.

Yeah, transsexual male Mark Hooper!

de-aged/sexy age play

John is de-aged-- can be by magic or science gone awry-- to a pre-puberty or early-in-puberty age.

While he appears physically younger, mentally and emotionally he is still the same. Including his sexual appetite.

Sherlock is put off at first, but John talks him into using his temporarily altered physical state to indulge in some fun, sexy age play scenarios. John-convincing-Sherlock to indulge may or may not include John seducing Sherlock.

Daddy/boy roleplay, incest roleplay, "underage" consensual non-consent roleplay-- the works.

Re: de-aged/sexy age play

Ugh *squirms* ... I want this!! Can I throw in a request for some spanking, too? ;)

Demisexual Sherlock

I often see Sherlock portrayed as asexual but still romantically interested in John in fics, which is great. But I've come across quite a few fics were he is asexual but when he becomes interested in John things change, or it's described that he hasn't felt sexual attraction to anyone like he has with John. This strikes me as Sherlock being demisexual, not asexual. With that said, could one of you lovely writers please write a demisexual!Sherlock who is interested in John, but John has no idea because everyone has told him/he assumed Sherlock was asexual. Sherlock tries to subtly let John know, but he just isn't making the connection. John has given up the idea of pursuing a sexual relationship with Sherlock, thinking it couldn't happen. Since his attempts at flirting aren't working, Sherlock decides he needs to make it undoubtedly clear to John that he wants him both romantically and sexually.

TL;DR Sherlock isn't asexual like John thought/has been told, but is demisexual. Sherlock makes sure to get the point across that he is VERY interested in a sexual relationship with John.

Re: Demisexual Sherlock

Seconded! I can totally see John assuming he is asexual because of how he relates to others.

Lestrade/Tentacle Monster, TW: Non-con, Body Horror, Mpreg-ish

In this world, tentacle creatures are a known and fairly widely documented form of marine life. Tentacle creature attacks are even less common than shark attacks, so humans rarely worry about them. Mostly because they're largely peaceful creatures, and are only known to bother other animals when they're reproducing- the tentacle monsters are unable to carry their own offspring to full maturity, so they implant them in other animals to be carried to term. The other animals are rarely harmed by this process, unless something goes amiss.

Enter Lestrade and his terrible, horrible luck. He happens to take a holiday to the ocean at the same time one of the creatures has come to shore to catch a carrier for their egg. As a result, Lestrade becomes the (not-at-all) happy father of a bouncing baby tentacle beast. After the implantation, he goes to the doctor to see what can be done for it, but it can't be removed without a highly invasive, dangerous operation. The doctor recommends Lestrade just leave it and let it come out "naturally". Lestrade is disgusted, appalled, then eventually resigned. Yep, in the next couple of months he's going to be delivering a tentacle creature out of his ass.

Bonus points if during the course of the "pregnancy" the little baby beast secretes a chemical which "bonds" Greg to it, so when it's born he actually feels some amount of affection for it and cares for it until it's big enough to be put out into the ocean.

And then he never, ever goes near a body of water again.

(Sorry for the prompt being so specific. I usually try not to dictate things like that, so if there's anything a potential author wants to change, you're more than welcome to do so!)

Mycroft/Female!Sherlock Riding, Incest, Love.

Mycroft and Female!Sherlock have been in a relationship since they were eighteen, and fortunately, or unfortunately Female!Sherlock likes an audience. Lestrade or Watson will be fine :)

Extra Points - If it shows Female!Sherlock riding Mycroft into next week, and showing her kinky side. A.K.A sucking on his nipples.

Re: Mycroft/Female!Sherlock Riding, Incest, Love.

This is my prompt, <3 Livejournal keeps logging me off for some reason..

rimming, multiple orgasms

John loves rimming Sherlock. He loves burying his face between those lush cheeks, making Sherlock's hole all wet and loose and ready for him with nothing but his tongue, until Sherlock is incoherent with pleasure. He especially loves that Sherlock can come from just this, but it turns him on so much that one orgasm simply isn't enough, and immediately after coming he's desperate to be fucked hard until he reaches his second climax.

Re: rimming, multiple orgasms

UNF - seconding so HARD!
