Irene Adler

Sherlock is sitting in 221B and he receives a text. His phone makes a noise. THAT noise. It hasn't done that in years.

Mycroft faints

Sherlock and Mycroft are having one of their usual snitty arguments when Mycroft abruptly collapses in the middle of it. (Hidden injuries? Flu? Blood sugar? I don't really care what the reason is, I just want to see Sherlock dealing with his always-collected big brother suddenly passing out on him.)

Re: Mycroft faints

Yes! Seconded!

Mind palace!Mycroft gives directions to Sherlock

Let's have a Mind palace!Mycroft giving Sherlock directions to do other things. Things more... pleasurable.

Sherlock is not a drug addict

Sherlock is has complete self-control over his drug use, as HLV showed. Bit his misguided friends keep treating him as an addict and he has to convince them otherwise.

Re: Sherlock is not a drug addict

I definitely didn't take the drug scenes in HLV to mean that he had any sort of control whatsoever. After all, even if he was putting on a show he wasn't clean. He was high, and who knows how long he'd been that way?

Inspired by a prompt above

John in Sherlock's mind palace telling ordering Sherlock to pleasure himself and talking him through it.

Bonus if he makes Sherlock drag it out until Sherlock is begging.

Sherlock is unexpectedly affected by porn

Sherlock has to watch some gay porn for a case. He's not expecting it to have an effect on him, but he starts imagining John doing these things to him and has to take a few minutes to calm down. He goes about the rest of his day determined to focus on the case, but John keeps brushing against him or touching him or just getting close enough for Sherlock to smell him, and Sherlock is getting increasingly aroused and frustrated as the day wears on.

It ends in enthusiastic, rough sex. (Bonus points if it's somewhere inappropriate.)

Mystrade, Matchmaker!Sherlock... with a Twist

Mycroft isn't out of the closet yet, but it's very clear to Sherlock (and the Yarders... and the family... and just about *everyone* else) that that is where his orientation lies.

Sherlock also knows about Mystrade (and has given Lestrade the appropriate shovel talk that Mycroft never needs to know about) and the fact that they've had a fight over Mycroft's coming out and broke up.

Basically, I'd just like Sherlock realizing how perfect Mycroft and Lestrade are for one another, and proving this to Mycroft by setting him up with a bunch of lackluster people to 'help him forget' Lestrade.


+10000000 if anon can somehow include Mycroft stumbling in on Lestrade crying.

Re: Mystrade, Matchmaker!Sherlock... with a Twist

I'm thinking about filling this and wondering if OP wants Myc and Lestrade to be fighting because Greg wants Mycroft to come out or because he doesn't want him to?

Mary's baby is born

with dark, wild curls and dazzling blue-green eyes.

John is not amused.

Re: Mary's baby is born

Do you want Sherlock actually the father or just a hilarious circumstance of recessive genetics?

I ask only because my oldest as a very young toddler looked eerily like his godfather. Flowing blonde hair, as if from nowhere! But both his dad and I are brunette. It was an ongoing joke for years that his godfather actually reproduces by spore.

(For the curious, his hair eventually went brown and he's now the dead spit of his dad, but for people of a suspicious nature who didn't know us well enough to know better, we got the side-eye for MONTHS.)

The Sign of Three, Ageplay Fic

I felt really bad for Sherlock when he said "You won't need me any more" when he told John and Mary that Mary was pregnant. I was imagining a scenario where John and Sherlock, and maybe Mary had been involved in an ageplay relationship with Sherlock as the little, and Sherlock really thinks that they won't need him around any more now they have a "real baby".

John and Mary convince Sherlock that they still want him to be their little, and that he has a place in their lives.

All aspects of ageplay/infantalism very welcome. :)

Sherlock/Mind Palace!Moriarty, Major Character Death

After being shot, Sherlock enters his mind palace one last time. It is there that he meets a familiar face, who, for the first time, takes all of the pain away....

fill: "a seance down below", Sherlock/Moriarty (kind of) [major character death]

"All this running away, running around in circles, what are you going to do when it catches you? Mm? You don't have to fear it. You don't have to run away. I won't hurt you, no, not now, too late..."

Vital systems shutting down. He feels himself beginning to go cold, the chill seeping in through the walls and between the bricks, twisting its way up his arms and legs like vines. Blood pressure bottoming out. Pulse failing; the heart tries its best, but it just can't make it all work, he doesn't have time...

"Too late."

His hands fumble with the straps; they aren't shaking any more, they've stopped trembling and now they're just stiffly failing to respond. But the buckles open up readily, belts snaking through when they're loosed. Sherlock had given escapology a great deal of thought while in school; it was a worthy diversion and had made him feel better-equipped to deal with being tied up in his own coat-sleeves and locked in the gym closet. Helping someone else escape, even James Moriarty, is strangely therapeutic. It requires him to concentrate on something besides himself and lets him martial his mental powers to the service of setting something loose. No more gnashing teeth and lunging. Jim's singing to him, stay, stay, stay. It's no longer a question of staying alive.

His enemy shakes himself loose from the stiff cloth of the straitjacket, working out a kink in his neck with one sinuous motion. His eyes glint with sudden lucidity; for a flashing moment he's not Moriarty the madman, nor hapless Jim, underneath all of it he's the man he was the day he unfolded his plan, his problem, his game.

Sherlock is dying. Moriarty is winning. His abrupt smile is white in his grimy face.

"Thanks for that, mate. Much appreciated."

"You're very welcome," he mumbles. Somewhere, a dozen floors above them, his bloodless lips are trying to form words and all that will come out is damp rapid breathing.

All that's left is the ugliness. And the crying, of course.

"Now, then, you promised, no more running and no more fighting. Stay with me and let it happen, let it pour down over you. It won't even hurt."

"This is the end for both of us, isn't it?" Sherlock emits a weak spasm of a laugh. Out of everything in the vast vaults of his dying mind, it's Jim he comes back to when he needs it most badly. He sinks down beside him and gives up, lets his mind palace do the work of arranging itself around him.

The oxygen isn't reaching his heart, isn't reaching his brain.

Jim's raw-scraped hands are gentle; they take his pulse in his neck, or else they're cupping his face, he isn't sure. His thumb brushes against his mouth, in a moment of sentimentality that ends with ruffling his dark curls and pushing him down against the dirt floor of this oubliette.

"You know me, Sherlock," he says coyly, "would I really want it any other way?"

Sherlock's body grows slack and heavy; his arms are much too heavy to lift, but Jim raises one of them just a little and lets it fall bloodlessly against the dirty floor. He works his grip underneath him and lifts him up. Madonna and offspring, how original.

"Ssh, ssh, ssh. I lied, it's going to hurt. I'm sorry. I really am. But you don't have to let it bother you," he says, with the sardonic loopiness of a bullied child.

Vision is failing him; the dark is tugging him under, insipid and inescapable, and he knows resurfacing is just a dim dream, more than his strength will allow for him. His head falls back and the last thing he sees before the flood of blackness surges over them both is that face, those drug-calm dark eyes surveying him.

He has been kissed, but never like this. He offers himself up to the touch, ghost-lips against his own and a bruisingly dedicated locking of mouths, as if he's making to draw forth his soul. It isn't a comforting kiss as such, as Moriarty's arms tighten around him and draw him up closer, but it connects them.

He tastes swimming-pool chlorine and Semtex, comes up out of it blinking tears from blind eyes. Jim's hands worry through the curls on the back of his head.

"Won't be long now. Carl Powers, that boy, remember him? You be good now and sit tight, and I'll tell you how I really did it..."

I'm in the mood for some gloriously hot, amazing passionate jaw dropping love-making between Sherlock and Sally.

Oh my god, if someone doesn't write it I will.


+ There's amazing imagery between Sally's skin tone and Sherlock's skin tone.
+ A bit of dirty talk in Sally's ear.
+ Something about 'The Coat'
+ Steaming hot sex: preferably vanilla, because classic flavours are just what people need sometimes.

According to Wikipedia the Hero syndrome is:

A phenopatiënton affecting people who seek heroism or recognition, usually by creating a desperate situation which they can resolve. This can include unlawful acts, such as arson. The phenomenon has been noted to affect civil servants, such as firefighters, nurses, police officers, and security guards. Acts linked with the hero syndrome should not be confused with acts of malicious intent, such as revenge on the part of a suspended firefighter or an insatiable level of excitement, as was found in a federal study of more than 75 firefighter arsonists.[1] However, acts of the hero syndrome have been linked to previously failed heroism. The hero syndrome may also be a more general yearning for self-worth.[2]

John never meets Sherlock. Instead he starts to hurt patients to heroically save them because he is bored

Moran/Moriarty - Mr and Mrs Smith AU

Exactly what it says on the tin!

"We cool, bro?" - Sherlock/Mary friendship

So His Last Vow kind of ruined the view I had on S3 at that point that Sherlock and Mary were BFFs. I get that she had her reasons for shooting him and did try to undo what she did by calling the ambulance. But I felt there wasn't really much there to justify her actions for for her and Sherlock to really clear the air.

Basically can someone write me a scene with Sherlock and Mary, post His Last Vow, where they have a proper moment between them, Mary is really regretful of what she did as well as grateful for the lengths he was willing to go to in order to protect her.

Re: "We cool, bro?" - Sherlock/Mary friendship

Definitely in need of this, I wasn't satisfied with what we saw on screen either. :(

Mystrade, sub!Mycroft, toys

Mycroft has a huge submissive streak when it comes to relationships and sex, and when he gets home from work he wants nothing more than for his lover (Lestrade) to take over completely.

Lestrade thought he'd be uncomfortable having the final say in pretty much everything, but he hasn't, in fact, it's pretty damn nice and hell, none of his previous partners have been willing to indulge his kinks before.

Anything goes, but Lestrade must not be cruel, or dark.


+ for Lestrade ordering for Mycroft when they go out, and picking meals that aren't on Mycrofts 'approved diet', because he knows Mycroft will eat it then and the man needs more food than the apple he had for a late breakfast.
++He has Mycroft put on a cock ring and then finger himself or use toys until he is hard and aching, forbidden to touch his cock or remove the ring, until Greg is ready to fuck him, and only after he cums does he romove the ring and let Mycroft.
+++ He has Mycroft wear a plug, one with a portruding end and a chastity device, and takes him for a long drive to a little out of the way place so he'll be all flush and hot and bothered, then make him go see some sights, or go for a nice country walk before going home, so that Mycroft is a mess by the time they get home and begging for Lestrade to take him to bed and make love to him and let him cum.
++++ When Mycroft brings his work home with him (because sometimes the man forgets that when the door closes he's at home and not the office) Lestrade cuffs his hands, blindfolds, gags and earplugs Mycroft (or uses a sensory deprevation hood) and bends Mycroft over his knee and spanks him till his ass is red, before settling in to a night of the telly, (and teasing Mycrofts cock and nipples) only removing the gag for dinner and bedtime. Super bonus for Mycroft apologising for being a bad partner/boyfriend/thing, and Lestrade telling him he really isn't by giving him a long, slow blowjob while Mycroft's still unable to see or hear.

So... yeah... anyone wanna fill this? I'd be very grateful.
Any toys and kinks welcome.

Re: Mystrade, sub!Mycroft, toys

They're not even my OTP but OMG is this hot!

Mary and Irene

Mary understands that Sherlock and John have a... complicated relationship. John worries that she puts up with his extramarital adventures out of guilt, but Mary's got secrets of her own.

AU where John and Mary are married, Sherlock and John solve crimes (and sometimes have kinky sex)- and Mary Morstan and Irene Adler commit crimes (also kinky sex). Bonus points if Mary tops Irene.

Re: Mary and Irene

Hehe this could be great!

Dark!John/Dark!Mary make Sherlock their pet

Dark!John had been in a relationship with Sherlock, but when he'd gone John met and equally Dark!Mary. Anyway, Sherlock comes back and John wants to continue having sex with him, because he enjoyed seeing what humiliating things he could make Sherlock do.

Mary suggests they make Sherlock their pet and John thinks this is a wonderful idea, and the two begin some extreme training to turn Sherlock into their egar little puppy, complete with choke chain for quick correction, paw mits, a muzzel and a tail plug.

Bonus points.
1. they reward Sherlock for good behaviour by letting him service them sexually, bad behaviour is dealt out swiftly and harshly (and usually involves threatening to nueter him).
2. they use a humbler to keep Sherlock on his knees (as standing in one is pretty dificult by all accounts)
3. When outside the home John and Mary frequently use an obediance shock collar substitute (around Sherlocks cock) to keep him in line.

Make it humiliating and degrading, and if you have Mary having the baby, I want Dark!baby growing up believing that Sherlock really is just the family pet, and treating him as such (when they move out of the city to a more private place, the child has Sherlock play fetch like a dog, and other things). John and Mary design some clothes he can wear that still allow his tail out and the humbler to be worn, but cover him.

Yeah... pet Sherlock.

Re: Dark!John/Dark!Mary make Sherlock their pet

O_O Want.

Mycroft is Actually Sherlock's Father

When he was in his late teens, Mycroft got a girl pregnant and she gave birth to their son, Sherlock. The Holmes' parents believed it to be disgraceful for their young seventeen-year-old son to have already sired a son out of wedlock, so he was raised as Mycroft's younger brother. Sherlock never found out the truth.

Sherlock doesn't understand why Mycroft is so protective of him. He doesn't understand why Mycroft gets so upset when he calls him his 'arch enemy', or insults him, or refuses his help... it's all because Mycroft is his father. And even if it hurts and that love is never returned, Mycroft will *always* love him.

Re: Mycroft is Actually Sherlock's Father

I love this idea. Seconded!

Mycroft needs a caregiver

Mycroft suffers an illness or injury that leaves him unable to take care of his own needs, but he's far too proud to admit it and just shuts himself away pretending he can handle things himself. Sherlock keeps dropping by to help him out while acting like he has completely unrelated motives every time.

Re: Mycroft needs a caregiver

+1. Not sure what 'needs' are implied, but I'd definitely read this!

Massage therapy between friends forces them to address existing intimacy

So I was thinking something where John (or Sherlock) have either the usual aches and pains, muscle groups they've had a history of flare-ups with, or recovering from a specific injury and they mention the pain to the other.

If it's John mentioning that he might start seeing a masseuse, Sherlock could be like "I'm clearly very adept at that already since I'm great at a lot of things, so I insist that I'll do it." You can focus on their thoughts while they're not talking but touching each other, whatever--I think it could be really intimate.

If it's Sherlock mentioning that he's having pain, I would expect him to complain about it and have John suggest professional massage therapy. Then Sherlock would have whatever reasons for not wanting someone to touch him or just having a distaste for it in general (insert condescending comment about people going to massage parlors that offer "happy endings"), and John could be like "well, I've actually had some training. If you want, I could do it..."

I tend to prefer stories that take it slowly so that the developments are subtle and believable, but this could go quickly or slowly. As I'm sure you could guess, John and Sherlock could both get turned on by touching or being touched, but they could also both be very professional about it, too. You could write the development toward intimacy any way you wanted and it would probably work out well!!

Got the idea because I have chronic pain and use massage tools and my partner to manage it and keep the costs down. There was an article in the NY Times in 2012 about a study that found that massage reduces the production of cytokines (which seem to bring about the inflammation associated with muscle soreness) while also stimulating mitrochondria, and the end result is that you experience pain relief AND heal faster. Kind of a big deal, because if Sherlock were going to take NSAIDs like aspirin or ibuprofen for chronic pain, John could point out that while they do reduce the pain and inflammation associated with muscle soreness, they slow the healing process.


Re: Massage therapy between friends forces them to address existing intimacy

Seconded! This could be very sweet, and also potentially very hot....

Irene as Sherlock

Irene Adler is roleplaying Sherlock for a client- blue scarf and Belstaff likely. Sherlock interrupts [for some contrived case reason], not expecting to see her, and certainly not like this. Irene refuses to break character. Hilarity ensues.

Re: Irene as Sherlock

You truly are one of the great minds of our time.

The Bathroom Situation

i'm new to livejournal which is confusing enough but i'm dying to be a part of this
prompt: johnlock navigating awkward bathroom situations as flatmates who may or may not be in love/lust with eachother and not quite realizing it yet possibly leading to some smut and/or fluff?

You're doing it right. <3 <3 <3

Sherlock/John - Where would John be in Sherlock's mind palace?

I find it interesting that we've been shown so many people appearing in Sherlock's mind palace - Mycroft, Molly, Irene, Moriarty, even Anderson - but not John. Sherlock heard his voice inside his head in TEH, so we know John's got to be in there somewhere. But where does Sherlock keep him? And when does John come out to play if not to help Sherlock survive from a mortal wound?

Take this anywhere you want - to a lush sex dungeon or a secret treasure vault hidden in the deepest reaches of the palace. Just make me feel. :)

Sherlock, boarding school and spanking secrets

Sherlock begins his detective career at boarding school, dobbing his fellow students to the principal anonymously, but not to appease his sense of justice.

Oh no, Sherlock does this because he is quietly obsessed with spanking, and likes to hide in the broom closet adjoining the principals office and listen to the students being punished with the school strap.

He doesn't just listen though, he furtively masturbates and fantasizes to the sound of their exclamations and crying.

This year, Sherlock gets a new room-mate. Will he be discovered by this unassuming new boy?

How will Sherlock cope with close proximity to such a handsome room-mate, given his appalling social skills and repressed sexuality?

Will he finally explore his own fetish, and determine if he is meant to be the one dishing it out or receiving it?
