MorMor H/C, protective Seb

Jim gets hurt at the hands of a gang of thugs who sought his help then tried to get out of paying.

Sebastian unleashes hell in payback, then turns his attention to getting Jim home and looking after him.

Bonus points if Jim is slightly surprised at how genuinely protective Sebastian seems to be of him as a person, not just as the source of Sebastian's paycheck (maybe it's early days in their relationship and this is the first time Sebastian's ever seen Jim hurt).

While Greg was Sleeping

Inspector Greg Lestrade was too sane to get involved sexually with either of the mad Holmes least while he was awake.

1. Lestrade and Sherlock have been awake for 3 days catching a killer then they return to 221B. Greg falls asleep on the couch and is so tired he sleeps through anything. Sherlock takes advantage to investigate the DI physically, first out of pure curiosity but then he becomes aroused and takes advantage sexually.

2. Some weeks later Mycroft and his team rescue Lestrade from some criminals that have captured and drugged him. Mycroft returns Lestrade to his flat but Very Drowsy Greg says or does something that arouses Mycroft who has a sexual encounter with him.

3. The Holmes brothers have become obsessed with Greg after these experiences and confess this to each other. They agree to work together, drug Lestrade and share him for one single encounter. They either alternate or share with Greg between them. No Holmescest.

4. Greg somehow finds out what the brothers have done. He had had no memory of any of the three events or thought they were just weird dreams. Greg gets his revenge on the Holmes brother, either singly or together.

Although this is non-con, the mood shouldn't be dark or violent. They aren't dark or evil, just making bad judgements about giving into temptation and rationalizing to themselves.

Holmes Family - featuring BAMF!Sherlock and BAMF!Mycroft

I want to see a a fic where Mummy and father Holmes are threatened/attacked. I want to see Sherlock and Mycroft react and go bamf. I want to see someone learn never to mess with the Holmes brothers - especially one's parents.

Molly/Moriarty or Molly/Sherlock, Warnings: hair kink, possible kidnapping

When left to it's own devices Mollys hair can grow extremely long. Record making long, if she cared about such things.

During college and med school and all that she didn't have time for the upkeep and so kept it at a responsible length. But after she helped Sherlock fake his death she figures why not let it grow, all she has to do is go to sleep a little earlier so she can wake a little earlier to pin it back for work.

When (character of choice) finally sees her hair down for the first time it has an effect that no one could have anticipated.

Maybe Moriarty even decides to kidnap her, and keep her as his very own Repunzel.

TW: Rape/non-con, kidnapping, dark, creepiness ahoy

She struggled once, Molly thinks blearily, closing her eyes as the shower pours down around her, her hair thick and heavy against her skin. Hiding her, as if she could make a curtain from it and pull it shut, conceal her from the world. Jim never lets her wear it like that, but she can dream, here in her own head, the last place she can still have to herself even a little.

“Now, now, Princess. No hiding from me behind that lovely hair of yours.” Jim’s voice is lilting and gentle, but she flinches anyway. Maybe she can’t hide even in her mind. She can feel reality shifting around her like sand pouring through an hourglass, and she wonders sometimes if Jim really can do magic: read her mind, disguise himself, keep anyone from finding her.

She shivers at his hands on her hair, working the conditioner through it, murmuring endearments about how beautiful it is, how beautiful she is. She hates it, wishes she could shave it off, cut off the massive weight and be free, free to run, to escape.

She knows it will never happen.

When he’s finished washing her hair, he washes her, soapy hands invading her skin, rubbing her everywhere, greedy and possessing. In the disguise of the hot shower, a few tears slip out; he doesn’t notice or doesn’t care.

He shuts off the water and pulls her to her feet, steadying her as she sways slightly, unable to keep her balance. He pulls her out and wraps her hair in a long towel before he puts her panties on her and fastens the corset around her torso. She doesn’t struggle now when he cuffs her wrists to the bar in the bathroom and starts pulling, too hard and too fast.

He doesn’t stop until her waist has been forced into an absurd hourglass shape, her breath shallow and fast as she tries to adjust to the familiar pain and restriction in her torso. Then, he uncuffs her and dresses her, a frilly dress she’d have hated even as a girl—too many ribbons and rosettes and lace, itchy and uncomfortable and hot. And as much as she hates it, this, her daily ritual of being bathed (not even allowed to bathe herself now) is better than what comes after.

He takes her into the other room, the sitting room. The Chair is there, The Chair that defines her life now. She considers trying to run, but where could she go? The doors are all locked, and he’s stronger than her, even without the corset stealing her air and the drugs stealing her coordination and focus. He’s cleverer and stronger and she’s never getting out. And so, she walks to it and sits, head down as she puts her hands behind her, letting him tie her wrists to it with silk rope, her ankles to the chair legs, dropping her head, the weight of her wet, tangled hair heavy, so very heavy.

He’ll dry and brush it—he loves brushing her hair, he can get off from that alone, or perhaps from that and her helplessness. Over and over, for hours at a time, brushing until it’s smooth around her feet. His own private Rapunzel, he calls her sometimes.

Trapped in a tower she can’t escape.

Later, he’ll feed her, soup she knows is laced with more drugs, more sedatives to keep her weak and unfocused and helpless. But she won’t fight because he’ll just inject them if she doesn’t eat, and then she’ll be drugged and hungry. Or maybe because she’s weak and stupid and on some level, she wants this and always wanted it. Maybe Jim just saw something in her and that’s why she’s here now.

Maybe she never should have grown her hair out to begin with. Maybe he wouldn’t have wanted her then.

He always touches her before he leaves for the night. He’s always gentle, and somehow that seems worse than anything else, that he isn’t even rough as he violates her most private places (body and mind are his now), calling her his princess, his beautiful princess.

Eventually, he leaves, leaving her in the dark, tied in The Chair for the night, leaving her alone for a few precious hours.

She wants to cry when he leaves but she never does now. Numb by then, and sleep comes soon—maybe something to thank the drugs for.

At least in sleep she can escape for a while, even if she never will in reality.

“Wake up, Princess.”

She opens her eyes to the cruel sunlight coming in the window and the day starts again.

John and Sherlock and Mary (threesom or platonic, either)

Sherlock and Mary get into a fight over something and do a rather good job of beating each other up. They show up at Baker Street late that evening, to find John waiting up for them. He begins to do a bit of his own investigating, and as soon as the coats come off he starts finding the bruises and scratches on each of them.
He goes into lecture mode, and basically sits the two of them on the couch and shouts at them for a while about their behavior.
(Up to writer if they all have sex afterwards or the two just get sent to bed without supper.)
Bonus points for Doctor John sitting them down at the kitchen table in minimal clothing and patching them up none-too-gently while lecturing.

TW: Non-con, abuse, victims blaming themselves

When Molly and Jim were together, Jim liked to lock her into a strap-on vibrator before she left for work. He said he loved knowing that she'd be thinking of him all day.

He also liked to set it off at the worst possible moments--leaving her embarrassed and stammering in front of her boss or people she admired. Every time she tried to tell him he'd embarrassed her or she wasn't comfortable, he'd laugh her off and tell her she liked it.

What she didn't realize was that Jim had bugged her and was deliberately doing it at times when it'd humiliate her.

Later, when she realized who he was, she denies to herself that it was a big deal--It wasn't 'really' assault because he was never violent to her and she never 'made him understand' that she wanted to stop.

So why does she feel so scared all the time?

Cue someone--Sherlock? Someone else?--Noticing that something's wrong and comforting her, telling her that what he did was wrong and that it isn't her fault, etc.

Re: TW: Non-con, abuse, victims blaming themselves

Bonus Points:

- Jim having told her that she wouldn't have orgasmed if she didn't like it, and her having internalized that.

- The toy he uses on her being a rabbit-style toy with the penetrative part a little big to be comfortable for her.

- Molly being unable to masturbate with her usual aids because every time she tries, she flashes back to feeling helpless and humiliated.

Molly Hooper, Anthea, and Mrs. Hudson are actually Witches.
Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes are Vampires
Lestrade, Donovan, and Anderson are Werewolves

Human John Watson came home to London after being shot in Afghanistan.

He just came back to the wrong one...

Or, How John Watson ended up in an Alternate Reality and befriended a Consulting Vampire and begun helping him solve Supernatural Crimes while coming to terms with being the only Human there, and trying not to be eaten/horribly mutilated by the rest of the world's inhabitance.

+ Mystrade: The Clandestine Vampire/Werewolf romance!
++ Mrs. Hudson being the kinda nice but also majorly creepy/scary Witch down stairs.
+++ Irene Adler trying to take John from Sherlock to keep as a pet.(She can be whatever kind of creature you want her to be.)
Jackpot for Sherlock (and the others) trying to keep John's existence a secret from the majority of the world because Humans are illegal.


I don't care whether it's Dimmock/Sherlock, Dimmock/pretty-redhaired-police-from-s2e1 or Dimmock/Molly, I just crave more Dimmock into my fandom.

Re: Dimmock/anyone

Is Dimmock/Lestrade also okay?

Re: Dimmock/anyone (Anonymous) Expand

SuperLock: John isn't who he says he is.

John was a doctor, but not a soldier. He was a hunter -- he just didn't bother correcting Sherlock's deduction. He got a bad injury and got out of the life, and wound up solving (relatively) mundane crimes with Sherlock, which is arguably less dangerous.

Sherlock has no idea the supernatural is real, and John's 'superstitions' are the first things that have left him flummoxed for this long. How could an otherwise completely rational man insist on laying salt on the sills and doorways with such deadly seriousness? What’s the use of holy water (surely it’s no different than regular water)? Why carry a blade plated in silver? Sherlock is determined to figure it out.

Doesn’t need to directly involve any SPN characters, but I’m totally cool with that.

Bonus: Sherlock learns the hard way. John has to save his ass.

SuperBonus: Other characters in the show are hunters or are involved in the hunting community. Lestrade? Mrs. Hudson? Moriarty?

UltimateBonus: Mycroft is just as unknowing as Sherlock.

''Sherlock is a girl's name.''

Sherlock's totally subtle urging for John to name Baby Watson after him is his way of asking John to please don't forget him.

Re: ''Sherlock is a girl's name.''

Aww, poor Sherlock. Agreed and hope some talented anon can hang a story on that (sad) thought. (At least Watson came back to Holmes in the canon. *clings to hope*)



I'm hyperlexic myself, so I just have this headcanon that someone in the Holmes family is hyperlexic. (Mummy Holmes, perhaps? Falling into type 2 - children on the autism spectrum that demonstrated reading as an early skill? Or Sherlock himself, who fits several of the signs and just chooses to invent the label "high-functioning sociopath" to put people off?)

Either way: A fic on how said Holmes found out and cope with their hyperlexia. Pretty please.

(If anyone wants personal details on what it feels like to be hyperlexic, feel free to comment below. I'd happily respond every query.)

Re: Hyperlexia

Sounds interesting. I never heard of this before. How do you think the floating texts in the series would fit in with a hyperlexic Sherlock?
Also, do you think there is a definite connection between hyperlexia an autism? I just wondered about the three types of hyperlexics the Wiki-article gives which are more or less neurotypical, autistic and though-to-be-autistic-but-wasn't. It just doesn't seem to be something that would be brought to medical attention by parents as long as there's no problem with verbal communication (which as I understand it is not unusual with autistic children, hyperlexic or not). I'm just asking your stance on this because you're probably better informed and I have got the impression that in recent years there's a trend to connect all kinds of unusual traits and behaviours with autism, sometimes on very shaky factual grounds. It's just because I know only one person who learned to read by herself before starting school and she also learned to talk rather early.
Finally, to take you up on your offer: What is it like? Are there downsides to the hyperlexia itself? Do you think you experience texts and words very differently from other people (The Wiki article isn't very informative apart from early learning and fascination with letters, whatever that means.) How tightly connected is text and speech for you? Is hyperlexia useful when learning foreign languages?

Sherlock plays the violin for Baby Watson's school Christmas function...

...And has to learn how to play 'Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer'.

Sherlock gives John kinky amazing sex by deducing until he gets something wrong and things are bad

Sleeping with someone who can deduce you is frightening but if you can trust him amazing because he can suss out all your secret kinks that maybe you didn't even know were there, and he can even watch you and switch gears mid scene because he can tell it's what you need so the sex is amazing for awhile.

But Sherlock isn't a mind-reader, and when someone's put that much trust in you in such an intimate context, when you get it wrong, it's going to be really, really bad.

TL;DR:Sherlock gives John kinky amazing sex by deducing until he gets something wrong and John is emotionally and/or physically hurt.

I was picturing John as a submissive here, but if he's a dominant, or the sex isn't BDSM but role-play or something like that that would also be amazing.

Re: Sherlock gives John kinky amazing sex by deducing until he gets something wrong and things are b

Oh this could be so angst and great! Because Sherlock is so sure of himself and he would just KEEP GOING and poor John would be hurting or humiliated or whatever--be still my heart! But I would hope for a happy ending though.

Alternate Universe, Dystopia, post apocalypse, what-have-you!

After a war wipes out almost all the men in the world, women take over, and enslave the few remaining men. Women pair off into groups and live together shairing their "Dolls" among them.

Irene, Molly, Mary, Sally, Sarah, and Anthea have fun breaking in their new Dolls: Mycroft, Greg, Sherlock, (Anderson?), and John.

Bondage, Femdom, Partner swapping (Cause girls know how to share their toys.) whatever else floats your boat. Non-con is fine. Anything goes.

+ For Irene Adler being the new Queen of England (And by Queen I mean ruler not figure head.)

++ Sherlock being punished... Repeatedly...

+++ Everybody taking a turn with John. Cause Bottom!John is my guilty pleasure. (You know, besides Mystarde. Omg Mystrade!)

Jackpot for some yummy M/M action with the girls watching.

Idk go nuts, its just there doesn't seem to be any hardcore femdom in this fandom. (You know besides those thousand and one Irene x Sherlock fics. But I want a variety of partners and pairings.)

Femslash on the side is welcome. (Because somehow I LIKE the thought of Irene/Molly XDD)

Feel free to add more charcters. I know some people would probably prefer to swap out Anderson for Henry Knight or Jim or whoever. As I said go at it.

Have fun!

Sherlock Ever After

Right here's an idea for a prompt I really want to read with the cast of Sherlock in the film Ever after. (If you haven't seen it I would highly recommend it, it's a version of Cinderella where the prince actually has a personality, and is my all time favorite version of the story)
Sherlock would be the Prince, John as Danielle, Moriarty as the step mother, Irene Adler as Marguerite, Harry as Gustav, Molly as Jacqueline and Lestrade as Captain Laurent? Or you can mix it around a bit, I don't mind :)

"Have you lost your bloody marbles?" sighed Harry picking up the golden doublet and passing it through the curtains "John do you know what the punishment is for servants who dress above their station? Five days in the stocks."
"You'd do the same for me Harry, admit it," smiled John from behind the curtains "They really won't buy a servant with 20 gold coins. I am the only hope for getting Mike back before he's shipped off as a slave... I won't see our home divided."
John stepped out and Harry stood still, amazed at the transformation of her friend who looked away, embarrassed.
Harry sighed and raised her hand to John's chin "If you're going to be a nobleman... you must play the part. You look down to no-one."

Sherlock has a pacifier/dummy

Sherlock seems really stressed out on a case and someone takes him gently aside and gives him a dummy to suck until he feels better. May or may not be part of a larger ageplay relationship.

Re: Sherlock has a pacifier/dummy

"IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!" Sherlock's yell echoed from the other room, followed by a crash, and Mary winced, praying that the sleeping baby in her arms wouldn't wake. When little Emma Sherlock Watson only stirred a bit before falling back into a deep sleep, she set her baby girl into the bassinette she'd brought and slipped out of John's old room in 221C, Baker Street.
Sherlock was pacing the living room, pulling at his hair. John had gone out - a last second patient at the clinic - and she'd agreed to babysit the detective while he was gone.
"Sherlock," she hissed, pulling the detective from his pacing. He looked down at her in surprise for a second, blinking as if to make sure he was seeing clearly, then pulled from her grip and continuing his pacing.
"Sherlock, you're going to wake Emma..." Mary whispered, following the detective and having to stop up sharp as Sherlock turned and nearly paced into her.
"Mary, it doesn't make SENSE," he growled, taking her by the shoulders and guiding her out of his path before resuming his pacing.
"Oh for heaven's sake, don't work yourself up so," she scolded, "You won't be able to think clearly like that."
"HOW CAN I BE CALM?!" he cried.
Mary cringed as she heard her little girl make a small noise in the other room, starting to cry.
"Sherlock..." she glanced around for a second before digging through her baby bag for one of Emma's dummys. "Here."
The detective was still with shock as she shoved the pacifier into his mouth and pushed him down to sit on the couch.
"Now keep quiet for a while, at least until I get Emma back to sleep."

When Mary came back from rocking her daughter to sleep for the second time that evening, she was shocked to find Sherlock curled up on his side on the couch, still sucking on the dummy.
He glanced up as she came back into the room, pulling the plastic toy from his mouth and sitting up.
"I've figured it out. It was the window, they'd only latched one side."
"Does that solve the case?" she asked, taking a seat beside him, not quite sure how to react to the fact that Sherlock Holmes had spent the last ten minutes sucking on her daughter's pacifier.
"Yes, it should. May I keep this?"
Mary's lips pulled up into an incredulous smile as Sherlock held up the dummy.
"Of course, dear, if it helps you think quietly."
Sherlock nodded, popping the pacifier back into his mouth and curling back up on the couch, his head all but resting in Mary's lap.
She stroked his hair and switched on the television, flipping through soap operas until John came back.
This was going to be fun to try and explain.

teenlock where sherlock has a crush on his older brother mycroft's study partner (or friend etc.), john watson.

any age or POV is fine!

Re: teenlock crush


Johnlock - Cinderella AU

I was listening to the Amelie soundtrack and couldn't get this image out of my head. John is a prince, the only son of the King and Queen of this imaginary land called BBC. Sherlock is the youngest son of the Holmes, headed by an aristocratic couple whose elder son, Mycroft, is a consultant to the King of BBC. Sherlock is the awkward one who doesn't like polite society and hangs about the sheriff's house/dungeon/whatever would exist in this time period as a police station solving all manner of gruesome crimes no one else can come close to solving. His mother does not approve, and has been trying to marry him off for years. Sherlock had never been interested in the ladies his mother shoved upon him. He had never even contemplated finding a life companion until he was forced to attend the Royal Ball in his brother's stead and saw... him.

A roughly attractive man with a military posture he bore with an easy grace. A man who spoke to Sherlock frankly and was not put off by his socially inept nature, in fact, he seemed to greatly enjoy it.

But then Sherlock finds out the man he spent all night talking to, deducing all of the ladies' backgrounds much to the blond man's enjoyment, the man was actually Prince John. And instead of choosing a lady, which was the whole purpose of the ball, John chose Sherlock.

No one was more surprised than Sherlock himself. Mycroft never facepalmed so hard in his life.

**please no homophobia or sexuality crisis, this is a world where it's perfectly normal for a prince to choose a male to wed
**BONUS for snarky!John who loves witty!mean!Sherlock
**BONUS for sulky!Mycroft and nosy!well-meaning!MummyHolmes

Pool Scene from S01E03 rewrite

John is a werewolf who's just gone into heat, and he wants to mate NOW!

Jim picked a really shitty time to kidnap him...

Yes you heard me: John x Jim major DUB-CON.

Jealous!pining!John reading Janine's kiss-and-tell stories

I just want to see John obsessively buying and reading every tabloid that interviews Janine about Sherlock. Tormenting himself trying to decide if it could possibly be true. Jerking off with a jealous knot in his stomach. Not saying anything to Sherlock (or anyone else), because he has no idea how to talk about it.

Re: Jealous!pining!John reading Janine's kiss-and-tell stories

This! I love the idea of seeing John's reaction to Janine's made up but very flattering "revelations"!

Sherlock+Lestrade: A slight misunderstanding. (Past dub-con)

The general consensus in the fandom is that Lestrade met Sherlock when he was a drug addict, then took him home and helped him get clean.

Yes? Yes.

But see, Sherlock knows that there’s only one reason an older man would take Sherlock to his house and show him this sort of kindness. Lestrade only wants him around for the same reasons as every other older man who ever ‘wanted him around’. He realizes he’s in no position to turn Lestrade down -- he needs the security, and has nowhere else to go at the moment -- so Sherlock preps himself and slips into Lestrade’s bed.

Re: Sherlock+Lestrade: A slight misunderstanding. (Past dub-con)

This is what I want to be reading right now. Seconded!

SPREE! Its Not What It Looks Like!!

Sherlock and Lestrade find themselves in over their heads as a modern day Bonnie and Clyde crisscross Britain leaving a trail of bodies in their wake, while simultaniously having to investigate the disappearance of Sherlock's two best friends. Meanwhile John and Mary are forced to run for their lives after they're framed for robbing a bank, and murdering the security guards. Only no matter where they run to, more robberies, and murders seem to occure. Is there any way that the poor couple can clear their names though, when all signs point to them? What happens when Sherlock realises that the killing spree, and his friends dissappearance are connected?

Or: Greg and Sherlock try to stop two bank robbers murderous spree across England, while looking for clues to the Watsons sudden disappearance, never knowing the cases are one and the same, and that John and Mary are being framed.

Re: SPREE! Its Not What It Looks Like!!


O ye anons, I have a yen for some Mollcroft.

Specifically I have a yen for Mollcroft originating at the moment when he utters one condescending patronizing "Miss Hooper" too many, and in tones so crisp they could have issued from Sherlock himself she informs him that it's Doctor Hooper, thankyouverymuch.

Mary and Wiggins

End of HLV, after everyone's been drugged and Sherlock and John have left to confront Mangussen. Wiggins is watching the drugged family. Mary's dose would have had to be light because she was pregnant, which means that she was likely the first to wake up, perhaps by a long while.

I would love to see Wiggins attempting to keep half-drugged ex-assassin Mary from going after Sherlock and John while still trying to mind that she's pregnant and be very gentle with her.

Not an easy task when she can floor him with a single punch.

100% okay with him having to physically restrain her or tie her up/handcuff her to something while he tries to talk her into not following Sherlock and John.

Re: Mary and Wiggins

That could be hilarious!

Janine x Tom

Both were ditched unceremoniously by their fiancées and find that they're actually fairly compatible with one another.
