Mystrade hurt/comfort, whump

(Anonymous)
Mycroft and Lestrade are happily married. A serious accident during a case leaves Lestrade temporarily crippled and with amnesia. He has no memory of his relationship with Mycroft but he does remember Sherlock in the early stages of their friendship. The three have to help him through physical therapy plus helping him slowly recover his memory. He does overcome his injury and goes back to normal at some point.

Mystrade hurt/comfort, whump

(Anonymous)
Mycroft is sent on an assignment by MI6 to work in the field and Lestrade insists he tag along to make sure Mycroft is safe. The assignment involves infiltrating a group involved in arms dealing or something mob related. Somehow, their cover is blown and they end up captured by the target. Their captors want to interrogate Mycroft for information but Lestrade somehow gets them to take him instead. Lestrade is horribly injured and Mycroft knows that they have to escape before the captors decide to off both of them. Mycroft manages to call Sherlock for help before they escape (they figure out they are in the middle of nowhere). They struggle to survive in the forest hiding from the captors who are looking for them. Sherlock and John manage to come in time before Lestrade dies from his injuries and they are taken to the hospital. Mycroft feels guilty about that Lestrade went through because they should have interrogated him instead. Lestrade explains that in his wedding vows, he promised that no harm would ever come to Mycroft as long as he was alive and they were together.

sherlock can't deduce tv

(Anonymous)
I'm not sure what basis there is for this in canon since I've only really watched S1 so far. But in fic a lot, we see Sherlock spoiling shows by deducing plot twists. But let's be honest, most tv shows are not going to be that dedicated to details, making many deductions pointless (ie the actor will have different calluses than the character should, and that slight wrinkle would be from the actor's home life, not the character's struggles, the fresh pack of cigs are really just a prop error, and so on..)

I imagine that would really annoy Sherlock after a while. To him, many of his deductions being useless would be really frustrating. I mostly want to just see a fic where sherlock gets pissed at a tv show for jumping the shark, or otherwise taking some dramatic turn that he should have been able to figure out, dammit (if only the show writers hadn't just decided to retcon that shit). Alternatively, Sherlock is often thrown off because he keeps thinking only about character motivations instead of considering ratings and writer decisions, and that frequent oversight secretly embarrasses him

House MD / Sherlock Crossover

(Anonymous)
Where House is Johns brother, father or other close family relation. After all John knows how to deal with Sherlock's antics, finds him brilliant, and he's a great doctor.

YES! This is greatness!

One of the reasons Jim is so good at his job is because he has Gambit as an employee.

Sometimes they also do the sex.

Gen, For once Mycroft's men are actually paying attention while watching Sherlock

(Anonymous)
Sherlock and John are supposed to be under surveillance yet they always get into all sorts of trouble and have difficulty getting out of it. I'd like the boys to get into said trouble, maybe injured and in the middle of nowhere with no phones and no cctv etc, yet lo and behold there is Mycroft with backup and medical personnel to get them out of whatever trouble.
How do the boys react?

line prompt

(Anonymous)
please I'd like to see this line used, some how in some way.

"Caption Watson wants to kill you now."

John/Sherlock. A/B/O. Omega!Sherlock, Alpha!John. Someone questions John's gender.

(Anonymous)
Omegas are discriminated against very harshly, often seen as child-bearers, bed-warmers and property of their Alphas. Sometimes Alphas don't even get punished for rape and forced bonds if they have good enough lawyers.

Sherlock is lucky, because John is nothing like lots of Alphas (maybe they decided to bond partly because of the pressure Sherlock had been under, since he was an Omega without an Alpha, which can be dangerous sometimes, apart from being frowned at. Maybe even Omegas discriminate against other Omegas, who refuse to "follow the rules". But John and Sherlock do love each other and are happy together). John knows how hard it was for Sherlock to decide to enter a relationship with him, let alone bond, and to get used to it. Not only John would never treat Sherlock like his property or force him to get pregnant or anything like that, but John is only happy that his mate keeps solving crimes and doing other things that raise more than one eyebrow. John actually takes part in it, as he always has.

Omegas who do what they want or disobey social norms in any other way are really frowned at, but sometimes people start questioning the strength of their Alphas in that case. Maybe some people think Alphas like that are weak, can't "control their bitch", and it's okay to show disdain towards them.

This is what happens to John and Sherlock. Sherlock is very worried and upset. He's been bullied a lot since childhood, and now John is ridiculed, too. It's because of him his Alpha gets laughed at.

John, however, won't take shit like that from anyone, so he shows exactly how not weak he is and how nobody insults his mate either. If somebody gets seriously hurt in the process, it's okay. It's not against the law for an Alpha to protect his or her Omega, so...

I prefer if those who get hurt aren't from NSY, but people from NSY can learn their lesson from it, too. Maybe they witness it.

Gen - Sherlock Defends Sally (Repost)

(Anonymous)
Like a complete doofus I went and posted my prompt in the wrong post. Here's to hoping I got the right one this time!
====================================================================

I have seen several prompts and fics depicting Sherlock getting harassed or bullied, and despite her supposed hate of him, Donovan suddenly steps up to defend him. What I want is the reverse:

Sally is getting harassed or put down by someone within Sherlock's vicinity, and Sherlock will not tolerate anyone insulting Sally.

Only he can do that.

If you wanna keep it Gen or maybe pair Sally and Sherlock you may. I am cool with either.

It has been brought to our attention that for much of this meme's history, our conduct has been incredibly speciest. For today, at least, we must throw off the shackles of hegemonic humanity and celebrate the presence of the amazing animals we've often overlooked in our love of this series.

In this spirit, we request that everyone focus their efforts on prompting and providing fanworks that focus on the non-human characters of Sherlock. Rise up mammals, amphibians, reptiles, others, and allies! Vertebrate or invertebrate, cold- or warm-blooded, today is your day!

Ssnakessss.

(Anonymous)
Somebody kills people by placing exotic, extremely poisonous snakes into the houses/cars/workplaces of the victims. Sherlock and John decide to investigate.

Bonus: a snake bites Sherlock. John goes into his super-doctor mode to save his life.

Meow. Coo. Grr.

(Anonymous)
A character (or characters) of your choice can talk to animals. This is sometimes helpful, and sometimes extremely unhelpful.

Is that why John is so good at controlling Sherlock? (cos all that came to mind when I saw this prompt was Cat!Lock)

I'm so sorry! Not hijacking, just couldn't help it.

John&Sekhmet. CATastrophe in 221B.

(Anonymous)
Remember Sekhmet? The kitty seemed quite comfortable with John. When her owner gets arrested (she couldn't care less, of course), somebody (such as one of the servants) remembers that fact. They contact John and ask him to take Sekhmet home and be her new owner. John isn't quite happy about it, but, eventually, agrees. Why not? Cats don't need that much attention, as log as they are fed, healthy and taken care of. What can go wrong?

Sekhmet moves to 221B.

Like most of John's girls, Sekhmet absolutely loves John, but hates Sherlock. She ruins his experiments, gets angry when he starts playing the violin, finds his cigarette stashes and digs them out for John to see, gets sweet and nice with Mycroft, and so on.

You can go a little bit cracky here. For example, Sherlock deduces that she wants to kill him (or maybe it's just imaginary). John, of course, finds it ridiculous and thinks that Sherlock is in one of his childish moods.

Maybe John manages to get them more tolerable towards each other, but not before some scratching is done and some mice for experiments are eaten.

Platonic John/Sherlock with feelings towards each other is preferable.

Re: John&Sekhmet. CATastrophe in 221B.

(Anonymous)
Sorry, just wanted to add that, while she hates Sherlock and does bad things to him, Sekhmet is an entirely different kitty for John. She really loves to make herself comfortable on (or in) his jumpers, she's always happy to see him. If he comes back tired after work, she gives his back or legs some relaxing kneading with a lot of purring. In other words, she's a good kitty for John.

Sherlock really can deduce fortune cookies

(Anonymous)
Sherlock wasn't lying- he really can deduce fortune cookie messages. And sometimes he uses "What would this suspect's fortune say?" to crack cases.

Molly is pregnant w/ Lestrade's baby: Delighted!Sherlock

(Anonymous)
Sherlock stops off at Barts to collect some data or other from Molly, but she isn't in her usual lab. She eventually enters all flustered, and Sherlock opens his mouth to try and deduce her, but just then a positive pregnancy test falls out of her pocket. (Molly and Lestrade have been dating for a while now).

Sherlock can easily see how much this means to her and is thrilled for her. I honestly just love Molly and Sherlock's friendship, and would just love an honest scene of joy between them, e.g could include giggling, hugging, dancing, however you think they would act. Can include some John/Sherlock if you like.

Mulan 2 and Sherlock!

(Anonymous)
Okay, not literally- I just really need a scene like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkOzJR3i-N0 Something where Sherlock and John are clinging to each other from a great height, and John lets go in order to save Sherlock. Dialogue should mostly match Mulan 2. Make it gut-wrenching.
+1: If Lestrade has to pull a stricken Sherlock out of harm's way, and has to calm him down/comfort him etc.
+2: If John survives.

Mycroft!Whump. Emotional/physical abuse/torture.

(Anonymous)
Mycroft gets extremely fucked up, whether by one of his enemies or Sherlock's. And he's eventually rescued, but not before his confidence has all but left him, and he's a cowering wreck when he's finally free. Sherlock is the only one, outside of Anthea, he allows to get close to him, so Sherlock moves into Mycroft's house while he helps his brother heal. But it's a major struggle for them, because whenever Sherlock intrusively deduces someone, Mycroft starts having a panic attack, because he's thrown back to his captivity, where his torturers could deduce every little thing about him he didn't want them to know, and they threw it in his face. And everytime Sherlock does it to someone else, Mycroft is reminded that his secrets will never be secret again. Sherlock learns to reign himself in, first when Mycroft is around, and then when Mycroft is not.

Preferably a happy ending, where Mycroft builds himself back up, and goes back to being BAMF Big Brother, but it takes a bit of effort to get him there.

Preferred pairings (if you have to use them): Mycroft/Lestrade. Sherlock/Anthea.

Mycroft talks in his sleep

(Anonymous)
Mycroft doesn't realize for quite a while after he and Lestrade started dating (and sleeping together) that he talks in his sleep. He only finds out because Lestrade casually mentions something he absolutely, positively SHOULD NOT have been able to know about (matter of severe national security, maybe) and has no idea why Mycroft is so upset that he knows it.

Bonus points: Sherlock stayed with Mycroft for a while (when he was a kid, post-rehab, whatever) and Mycroft suddenly realizes this is how Sherlock "deduced" a bunch of embarrassing stuff about him at the time. Sherlock never told him how he knew because he's a shit like that, and Mycroft spent years freaking out that he was giving something away by mistake somehow and he'd compromise official secrets because of it.

John/Sherlock (imaginary?), Irene. Dirty Talk. Possible A/B/O Verse.

(Anonymous)
Irene teases Sherlock to break his concentration/ruin his investigation. For fun. She does it by whispering dirty, sensual things into his ear about him and John having sex, because she knows that Sherlock, while he's a virgin, has a secret, guilty desire to have it with John. She also knows that Sherlock mainly fantasises about John dominating and penetrating him, so she creates a rather vivid, detailed picture of it. She gets Sherlock very aroused and then makes him have a mind-blowing orgasm just by telling him all those things, while she's smugly watching him coming undone completely.

It can be a usual verse or an omega verse with Omega!Sherlock, Alpha!John and Alpha!Irene. By the end of the whole thing, Sherlock has a large wet spot on the back and on the front of his trousers. Maybe it's quite dub-conish and Irene uses her Alpha voice to keep Sherlock from trying to leave or block her out, but otherwise is just sensual, not violent.

Pre-johnlock or unresolved johnlock is fine.

broken Sherlock

(Anonymous)
Sherlock and John have drifted apart somewhat after John's daughter was born, but John still visits Sherlock more or less regularly. One day, Sherlock asks John to please stay the night. John's reluctant not go back to his family, but eventually agrees and sleeps in his old room. He wakes up in the middle of the night and notices the door is ajar even though he closed it, and finds Sherlock sleeping on the floor right outside the door.

Eventually John understands that Sherlock is traumatized both from his time away and another occasion when he got caught and tortured while on a case alone and/or protecting John and his family, and suffers from insomnia and horrible nightmares and only manages to get a decent night's sleep if he can hear John breathing.

John realizes how much Sherlock needs him and helps him recover.

(Platonic relationship with pining Sherlock or slowly evolving Johnlock is fine, but please no John cheating on Mary.)

Re: broken Sherlock

"And I can't sleep
Without your breathing.
And I can't breathe
Each time you're leaving..."

Yes, please.

John and Sherlock: Platonic Marriage

(Anonymous)
John and Sherlock get married...and literally nothing changes. Your challenge: Totally platonic. No slash. No romance. No friends to lovers.

Maybe they've gotten tired of calling Mycroft every time they need something legal set up (like medical power of attorney). Maybe they've looked at all the options in society and say a marriage is the closest thing to fulfilling their needs (legal, social, whatever). Maybe they say neither one of them are probably going to marry anyone else, so why not make it official that they are a (platonic) pair. (I don't care what you do with Mary in this scenario.)

But overall, their lives don't change at all. Still separate bedrooms. No kissing the groom at the registrar's office. No changing of last name. You get the idea.

Bonus +1: Someone unexpected (Mycroft? Donovan?) thinks it's a brilliant idea.

Bonus +5: "Three Continents" Watson finds a way to use his new status to pick up women.

Bonus +10,000 and I will name my puppy after you: Sherlock finds a way to use this to pick up women!

Crack accepted and enjoyed but not required!

Gonna fill. May be only a mini fill tho.

Sherlock/femjohn forced pregnancy

(Anonymous)
Ok-please someone fill this and put in AO3?

I would love to see a dark sherlock realizing that FemJohn is leaving him for malemary (can be omegaverse if you want or gender bent) and as a result Sherlock starts planning. After all! He'd be lost without his blogger!

Anyway, so Sherlock starts taking advantage of the accepting fiancé but starts making it to where they fight and Sherlock is there to comfort. Convenient, eh? Then Sherlock moves it to the next stage...sex. John then starts freaking out and is considering leaving so Sherlock figures there's only one possibility to guarantee that John will not be able to leave easily. If John became pregnant then he/she would stay for the baby. After all, John could never afford to win a custody battle nor would he/she want to leave the child with sherlock. Sherlock changes the birth control pills and ensures the condoms are faulty to ensure conception. Sherlock is soon overjoyed that John is pregnant and really enjoys the sight of the changes that happen.
