Sherlock and porn

So. "Porn preference: Normal"

The fact that he's even seen enough porn to have a preference needs discussing. So discuss. Sherlock and his porn habits. A bit of wanking would be lovely as well.

John/Sherlock optional

A/B/O. Alpha!Magnussen has insidious claims all over England.

The licking, the peeing in fireplaces, the washing of his spitty fingers in Sherlock's water... It was all so very 'aggressive Alpha who is going to show your sweet Omega ass just who's in charge'.

I would love to see Sherlock and John work out that Alpha!Magnussen has been using his blackmail not only for political and social power, but also to set up what is essentially a harem of the most powerful people in the country. Whether or not he has sex with them or not is irrelevant - their awareness that he could if he wanted is quite enough for him.

Bonus if the scene where he's flicking Any-dynamic!John's face is a version of this, and Any-dynamic!Sherlock seethes but knows he can't do anything about it.

Sherlock/Pulp Fiction

A Sherlock/Pulp Fiction crossover with Sherlock as Mia Wallace, John as Vincent Vega, and Mycroft as Marcellus Wallace. Now I'm not really a fan of holmescest so if we could just keep it to overbearing big brother that would be great.

Basically I just want the Sherlock version of the "Vincent Vega and Marcellus Wallace's wife," section from Pulp Fiction.

Re: Sherlock/Pulp Fiction

This so sounds awesome! Seconded

Sweeney Todd fusion

I don't know or care how, but now that the idea has struck me it won't let go. Someone please make this happen.

teeny tiny mini-fill

His hands was stable as he slid the sharp razor over the rough skin. Be patient, you have waited for this opportunity to come for so long, you can wait for a minute longer, he told himself, wiping the shaving cream onto the towel, tilting his client's head slightly with a touch of his fingers and holding his breath momentarily. Can't send him to Hell until the man's face had been shaved perfectly, no no, that wouldn't do. How delightful it'd look, the crimson beads on that white, slender neck, rolling down and marking that skin... Juuuust a bit more, there we go. He swallowed, tongue not quite resting in his mouth as he prepared to get it over and done with, tightening his grip of the razor---
Sherlock sat up. How could he do that? Sweeney stepped back, glancing between the shaved man and the older Holmes brother, still gripping the deadly razor. And now came in the phone-fiddling woman, too.
No, no, NO!

Well, it didn't matter. Sooner or later, Sherlock Holmes would need a shave. And Sweeney, oh, he was a man of patience.

Mary dies in childbirth, John is broken

Not a "Mary dies meaning Johnlock can be happy ever after" fic.

I want Mary dying and John being absolutely heartbroken. Worse than he was when Sherlock died. He's barely responsive, shuts himself off and maybe starts indulging in some vices of his own to cope like gambling and drinking and going out to start fights in order to get his adrenaline fix.

Worst of all he's got a newborn daughter to take care of. But John is suffering from post natal depression and finds it impossible to bond with his child, barely able to look at her because he misses Mary so much and subconsciously blames the child for her death.

Sherlock struggles to fulfil his vow. He does his best to look after the child while John grieves and struggles to help his friend. Maybe John resents Sherlock too for being there and not Mary when Mary is the one he 'chose'.

Would like a resolution with John finally bonding with his daughter and grateful for Sherlock's help. No 'romantic' ending though, just a grieving dad taking care of his daughter while his best friend takes care of him.

Re: Mary dies in childbirth, John is broken

This reminds me of the anime Clannad :( awww

Mystrade - CAM finds out Mycroft has another pressure point

Non-established relationship, please
How CAM finds it out and exploits it is up to you.

Baby Watson finds out the truth

John and Mary's daughter grows up besotted with her godfather Sherlock. Then one day, when she's about ten, she sees the bullet scar in his chest and asks where he got it from. Sherlock doesn't tell her the truth.

But she finds out somehow. Maybe she's smart enough to work it out when she sees her mother react to the question.

How does the kid react to knowing their mother almost killed her dad's best friend?

Re: Baby Watson finds out the truth

ohh!! Interesting

John has a tattoo.

My personal headcannon is that somewhere between Sherlock "dying" and returning, John got a memorial tattoo somewhere on his body for Sherlock.

It could be as closure or it could have simply been that he walked passed a tattoo shop, saw a tattoo that made him think of Sherlock and decided to have it. It could even be a declaration of the feelings he had for Sherlock, be that as a friend or realising he felt more. (Up to the author)

When Sherlock comes home and the dust has settled, John starts visiting more often and Sherlock deduces the existence of the tattoo.

What is it of? Where is it placed? And most importantly, how does Sherlock react to this?

RTYIs are welcome.

Re: John has a tattoo.

Oh yes please!

BAMF!baby Watson

What with her/his whole family (Mary, John, Shelock, Mrs. Hudson..) being so incredibl BAMF-y the lil one is bound to be made of awesome! I'd love to read about him/her helping Sherlock out with a case, going incognito to catch a criminal, doing martial arts (maybe Sherlock or John teaching..)..

Prompt: John/all the Avengers (Marvel, that is)

In a world where Marvel superheros and the BBC Sherlock verse peacefully co-exist...

... John realizes that, over the years, he has manged to bed every. Single. Avenger.

This is three-continents-Watson we are talking about afterall, guys, so it isn't even far-fetched.

Any scenario, though I'd love for John to be surprised and a bit taken aback by the discovery, and if you make it John/Sherlock that'd be the cherry on top!

Maybe he hooked up with Tony on some big conference, fearlessly put the moves on Natasha while she was undercover on a mission (which she accepted because even bad-ass assassins can't resist John's charme), fucked Clint while in Afghanistan (well, we all know Clint has a thing for unassuming-but-secretly-badass men...), cheered up Steve when the man needed it after after being recently de-capsicled, took Bruce home with him when he found him in just a pair of torn trousers on the streets (and things evolved from there...) - just throwing out some ideas here.

Re: Prompt: John/all the Avengers (Marvel, that is)

Seconded. Seconded SO HARD.

HLV need some extra angst please and thank

So john was pretty much just in another room when Sherlock was shot. But seriously? I don't think john would have let sherlock leave his sight on a case so soon after just getting him back, so what if John happened to walk into the room just as Mary shot Sherlock? How would he react and stuff? God just someone give me some angst pleaseeee

Re: HLV need some extra angst please and thank


Johnlockary, spanking, top/dark!John

John is PISSED at BOTH Mary and Sherlock for lying to him and being selfish brats, so he spanks them both and then they "make it up to him" together. ;)

After watching all of Series 3, I'd really like for Sherlock and John to get together after "His last vow". While watching the series I couldn't get rid of the feeling, that Sherlock really is in love with John and heartbroken over "losing" him to Mary. But I do believe that he still likes Mary. I mean he even supported them to get back together (probably for John's sake).

So I guess, I'd just like them getting together while leaving them as in character as possible and without disregarding anything from series 3.

But I have two favors to ask:
1. Please don't let John already be in love with Sherlock. I honestly believe he is kinda oblivious to Sherlock's feelings. I want to see him fall in love with Sherlock.
2. Please don't make Mary a bitch. Of course I want John ending up with Sherlock (and not some kind of threesome). But I still like Mary and despite everything I still believe she's basically a nice and reasonable woman and also likes Sherlock.

I'm really sorry for this lenghty prompt, but I need this to happen!! You would make my life!
All the other stories I've read so far, that were taking place after S03E03 (although I also really liked them!) had them already being in love or made Mary a real bitch.

Oh and by the way, of course I love a hot sex scene (who does't?) but here the plot is more important to me. So don't feel obligated. But if the mood strikes you, I won't complain. ;-)

Please please make this happen! I would love you forever!! :-)

I need some Season 3 Johnlock darnit! xD

I need this so bad too!! Why did they have to make Mary so nice / cool / interesting? I've would've been much easier for us if we could've easily turned her into a bitch ;D

(Warning: Prompt for non-con, or at best dub-con)

Can't believe this hasn't been prompted yet.

C.A.M. dominating Irene Adler - The Woman's pressure point(s) completely up to author.


Seconding this so hard. Knowing Irene's profession, she'll try to top him first. Imagine both of them trying to top each other, UNF.

Sherlock is not happy that Asperger's is no longer a thing

Sherlock (who was diagnosed with Asperger's at a young age), reacts to the DSM-5's removal of Asperger's syndrome as a proper diagnosis*. As a man of science, he respects the validity and necessity of the DSM, but he always rather liked his diagnosis, and is peeved that he now has different label.

How peeved he is is up to any potential filler -- it can range from a minute or so of annoyance after finding out, to a ten-minute rant at John about the un-fairness of it all, to organizing campaign to make the people who decide these things change it back (or just have Mycroft do it).

*The Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released in May 2013. This is the manual mental health professionals use to categorize symptoms and diagnose patients. One of the changes made in the DSM-5 was the elimination of the diagnosis "Asperger's" as a subset of the Autism Spectrum. Now, all patients who fit the criteria of the Autism Spectrum are given a diagnosis of Autism, with varying levels tacked on to specify their severity of symptoms.

Re: Sherlock is not happy that Asperger's is no longer a thing

I don't mean to be a buzz kill, and this prompt still stands otherwise if it's his general wrath at the global state of mental health care, but the DSM is an American set of medical guidelines, compiled by the American Psychiatric Organization. Neither Holmes brother is likely to have a lot of influence on it or to have had been directly influenced by its rulings unless the Holmes parents lived in the US.

CAM kills Mummy Holmes

Sherlock is the one to discover the body, and is absolutely mortified and inconsolable. John does his best to comfort him - friendship preferred, but no romantic intentions.

Bonus for:

Sherlock/Moriarty, where Moriarty has been waiting for the opportune moment to make his return, and *he* is the one that kills CAM b/c Sherlock is just *done*.

Holmes brothers bonding. B/c who better to comfort each other than the two people least accustomed to comfort in the world?

Mystrade, Emotional!Mycroft, Comfort & Cuddles

After Mary shoots Sherlock, Mycroft refuses to leave his bedside - even to the point of physically making himself sick (like, the doctors threatening to put him on an IV). Mummy Holmes, afraid of losing both her sons, calls Lestrade.

Lestrade takes care of business, even if Mycroft is incredibly hesitant to accept his help.

John/Sherlock, "About Time" trama

So you saw that movie with the lovely redhead and Bill Nighy?? Ok
So my promp is this: With a wife that just can't get into a 'normal' life and runs away with the baby and every not healed wound John got very drunk and have a mortal accident.
Sherlock, out of frustration and impotence got very suicidal until Mycroft told him of this condition that Mummy, their older brother and maybe Sherlock have to travel in time; if they get in a dark place and that.
So Sherlock tries to save John from the accident, and then from having to fake diyng himself, from meeting him, from get shot, from get into the army.
Maybe none of these time travels works or maybe one works, but Sherlock's happiness is in game too.

HLV: Sherlock confesses

Some spoilers below.

So this has been on my brain for a while now but right before Sherlock gets on the plane (being exiled and all,) he confesses to John about his feelings (instead of a handshake) because he doesn't know when he'll see him again.

Cue problems when Mycroft calls him back.

Pairing doesn't matter as long as it doesn't end in angst.

Bonus: Ends up with Johnlock or John/Sherlock/Mary.

Re: HLV: Sherlock confesses

I'm really surprised that I haven't seen this prompt yet.... Seconded!

Mycroft spoils Sherlock financially

Mycroft feels horribly guilty when Sherlock tries to stay off drugs. Mycroft knows it's for the best, but knows it isn't easy and tries anything to make it better.

Sherlock wants new clothes? Only the best, Mycroft pays.
He wants something very expensive? No problem with Mycroft's credit card.
He ruins something belonging to other people? Mycroft pays the bill.
This goes on for years and Sherlock does't even think about it until someone (John?) makes a comment.

Suit's Worth of Comfort [1/3]

A/N: Hmm... this turned into a bit of a character study of child!Mycroft's neuroses and how they grow with him into adulthood. Felt compelled to fill this because I relate -- caring for an almost-normal but still mentally ill brother. Anyway, a little dark, but enjoy.

Mycroft was tired of asking Sherlock the same question: "Why did you do that?" He asked after Sherlock stopped doing his homework, after he refused to talk for days on end, after he threw Mummy into a panic by bringing a dead bird from the garden and dissecting it on the kitchen table in an attempt to understand what had killed it. Mycroft knew there was something wrong with his brother. He laid under his covers at night, when the house felt like it had too many rooms, and thought about it. How had he ended up with a brother like this? His mother would never admit it, but she loved Sherlock a little less. It wasn't anything about Sherlock. There was simply nothing like the first child. That was the kind of love settles down and crushes. Her love for Sherlock was a little bit lighter. Maybe if Sherlock had been born first he would be better. Of course that couldn't happen. It was impossible. But, it didn't stop him thinking about it. Don't be ridiculous, Mycroft scolded himself. Irrational. Nonetheless he still wondered, What should I have done differently?

When the school counselor called to say Sherlock was having problems in class the family wasn't surprised. His parents took her reference to a local clinic. Sherlock began to receive monthly sessions of psychotherapy from a middle aged woman, Dr. Snow, who consulted the International Classification for Diseases and made a diagnosis: F90.9 Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It made his parents feel better. Something was being done. The outbursts would pass, she told them, by the time he finished puberty. She'd seen it many times before. He was a good kid. She looked at her notes. They didn't have to worry. Mycroft did worry. Dr. Snow was wrong. His chest filled with an ache that would have liked to spill out through his eyes and nose had he not been blessed with the self-control his brother lacked.

When Sherlock was an infant, Mycroft felt compelled to touch him. He found Sherlock fascinating right down to the way he smelled, a scent so clean and full of hope it made him dizzy with frustration that his brother was already far too bright and far too stupid to cope with the suffering of mankind's inability to face what it does not understand. How deep and sticky this desperation was in Sherlock: pure, savage, unrestrained. When Sherlock cried Mycroft felt it too, the gut hollowing terror of a mind cannibalizing itself in the face of a world just slightly too complex to structure neatly. "Shut up, Sherlock!" he would snap. "You'll upset Mummy. Idiot." Idiot, what a word, he thought. "Stupid." The incitements fell from his mouth almost by accident. It always took him a moment or two to recover from saying them. But, no matter what he said, Sherlock did not shut up. He never shut up. Mycroft filled the hollow with recipes from his grandmother's cookbooks which inevitably began with a stick of butter.

Grown ups could deal with tears from scraped knees, dropped ice cream cones, and lost dollies. Big, soft arms and deep voices in the dark said, "Tell Papa, tell Mummy, and we'll make it alright." How wrong the were. How feeble adult awareness, dulled by the convenient cushions of age and its civilizing anesthesia. Did they comprehend just how small a toy bear or lollipop's worth of comfort was? Of course not. If they knew what really made Sherlock cry they would throw him from their arms in terror. It was bitter for him to see what awful innocence adults grew into. Could they really blame him for resenting their fantasy of largeness, and control? When he grew up, he would be different. He would know everything. He would organize the world and he would be big enough to protect people from it. Mycroft was certain.

Johnlock, A Different Reunion

I'd like to see a Johnlock reunion, in place of the reunion where John beat the crap out of Sherlock. No Mary, just lots of fluffy Johnlock angst.

"Mikey, my head hurts."

A concussed and confused Sherlock gets all clingy with his older brother. And then stubbornly denies it ever happened after he's recovered.

Re: "Mikey, my head hurts."

aww!! I was going to ask for some brotherly fluff, but you beat me to it, hahaha

Sherlock and dogs (HLV spoilers)

So, now we know that Sherlock likes dogs. I want to see him get caught making a fuss of one after pretending to be aloof and disinterested. (Maybe it's a police dog he's "borrowed" for a case or something?) Bonus points if everybody's rushing back to rescue the dog from him because they're afraid he'll have done something horrible to it.

Meeting the parents (minor S3 spoilers)

Okay, so we've finally met the Holmes parents - now I want everyone else to as well! I'd love to see some scenes of other characters' encounters with Mr and Mrs Holmes. Molly? Lestrade? Anthea? Sally Donovan? Anyone! I just want to see what they all make of Sherlock and Mycroft's parents.

Johnlock, Only Human

"I'm only human, and I bleed when I fall down."

Many people believe that Sherlock is a man that is trying to be a god, but he's not. He's just a fragile human... and during one of his danger days, in a particularly severe moment of weakness, he confesses this to John.

Re: Johnlock, Only Human

What an intriguing prompt, I'm surprised that no one's caught it yet. Seconded.
