Yes, please! I think both John and Sherlock would be ecstatic (though for John we'd probably need some dangerous stuff involved). :)

Platonic, one-sided John/Sherlock (?). Asexual, (at least mostly) aromantic!Sherlock. Harassment.

(Anonymous)
Mycroft wasn't joking, saying that sexual stuff alarms Sherlock. And Sherlock wasn't joking about not being interested in any kind of relationships, that 'alone protects him', and so on.

John is an exception, since Sherlock considers him his only friend and is quite attached to him. Unfortunately, since John got married (nobody knows how hard it was for Sherlock to be his Best Man with all those people there. If it wasn't for the case...) Sherlock can't always avoid other people when he meets John. John and Mary have got mutual friends now, after all (maybe Mary likes guests and invites them pretty often). So some of those people start to seriously annoy Sherlock. Some talk about sex or make sex jokes, which makes Sherlock uncomfortable. Some talk about their families; wives, husbands, kids, and Sherlock couldn't be more disinterested. He's only there, because it's expected of him and he misses John.

Some believe that, just like John, Sherlock absolutely must find someone. They try to set him up with somebody. Sherlock is annoyed and shows his absolute worst demeanour when such things happen. Maybe there's somebody who, sort of, starts harassing him and thinks Sherlock should just 'open up', 'give it a try', 'relax' and so on, which, of course, they want to 'help' him with. Maybe some people even expect it to work and gossip about it even though there's absolutely nothing between that person and Sherlock.

One day Sherlock just can't take it any longer. All those talks, people annoying him, making sexual innuendos, that one person who keeps asking him out... So he freaks out really badly and has a breakdown on public.

John takes care of him afterwards and makes sure Sherlock doesn't ever have to 'socialise' again (maybe it was Mary's idea in the first place, so that Sherlock wouldn't be lonely with the lack of John in his life, but John was sceptical from the start). He prefers to spend more time with Sherlock alone anyway, so he makes serious adjustments in his family life.

I'd prefer Sherlock having feelings for John, and John means more than a friend to him, which is a unique situation for Sherlock, but he knows he wouldn't be able to have a relationship with John.

John/Sherlock, Irene. Omegaverse. Alpha!John, Omega!Sherlock. Voyeurism.

(Anonymous)
Omegas or Alphas are extremely rare. Maybe both Alphas and Omegas are rare. But Omega!Sherlock and Alpha!John meet each other and, eventually, bond.

One day they have a complicated case and need Irene's help (for example, important information only she can give them). Irene can be a Beta (if Alphas are too rare) or an Alpha. But, please, even if both John and Irene are Alphas, they aren't arseholes to each other because of Sherlock; Irene respects Sherlock's bond, even if she can tease somehow, and John trusts his mate and doesn't treat him as property.

Irene is ready to help with their case, but she has a condition. She wants to watch an Alpha/Omega sex, while an Omega is in heat and then gets knotted by his Alpha. Since at least one of those secondary genders is extremely rare, such type of sex is even more rare and hardly something you can witness in your entire life even if people have a good idea of what happens between the two. Irene is curious about sexual things she hasn't seen before.

John and Sherlock are desperate for her help, so (maybe with quite a bit of initial reluctance) they agree.

When Sherlock goes into heat, John takes care of him, while Irene is sitting in a comfortable armchair watching the two of them. Maybe she's secretly recording it, it's up to you.

Maybe she even spends the entire heat with them (a couple of days?), but takes a break when they do or when they fall asleep only to come back and keep watching.

Everyone gets what they want.

SerialKiller!John

(Anonymous)
SerialKiller!John and Sherlock hunting him down.
John returns from Afghanistan desperately missing the action. Instead of meeting Sherlock to alleviate his boredom he was forced to find his own methods. Doctors know how to heal, but they also know how to take apart.
John kills as his own brand of justice, slash or no slash, John smart enough not to get caught immediately. No Evil!John and no Enemy!John (Sherlock and John should never hurt each other purposefully D: )

Re: SerialKiller!John

(Anonymous)
Ps. When I say 'own brand of justice' I mean people he feels justified in killing such as criminals.
Obviously it should not be immediately identifiable by the police and Sherlock should have to do a bit of digging to find this out.
I swear, if I don't get this I'll write it myself (and I'm a terrible writer)

John/Sherlock, nobody thinks they're a couple

(Anonymous)
Post s3, and after Mary dies/leaves/disappears/gets mycrofted/etc, John and Sherlock finally get together.

But John's marriage and Sherlock's relationship with Janine convinced everyone (Molly, Mrs Hudson, Lestrade and his crew... probably not Mycroft) that they are in fact totally straight, and longing stares, casual touching, lack of respect for personal space and willingness to do pretty much anything for each other are just how they express their 100% NO HOMO friendship. So if John and Sherlock seem even closer than before, it just because they're glad that the whole Moriarty/Magnussen/Mary mess is over, right?? They're straight after all! What else could it be!

At first John and Sherlock are a bit annoyed that nobody seems to notice the change in their relationship, but then they decide to test just how far they can go with PDA, declarations of love and other couple-y behavior before everyone realizes that there is in fact a lot of homo involved.

Possible John/Sherlock. Sherlock's and John's parents meet.

(Anonymous)
We have seen Sherlock's parents, but we haven't seen John's. I'd love to see a situation where both John's and Sherlock's parents meet.

Just, please, no evil and abusive parents on either side. I prefer if John's mum and dad are proud of him. Maybe they are simple people and are very proud that their son is a doctor and an army captain, which is a big achievement, whether it's somewhat usual for their family or not.

Both sets of parents get along. Mummy and Mrs Watson agree that their boys are meant for each other and excitedly discuss it while having some tea. Maybe they even plan to make their sons get together (hey, they are just being helpful and caring! ;) ), which doesn't mean that their efforts are appreciated.

Re: Possible John/Sherlock. Sherlock's and John's parents meet.

Hey, Anon! Might use this prompt for a 30 Day Sherlock Challenge I'm working on at the moment! I'll be sure to post a link to the fill if it works out. ♥

Sherlock gets tortured, John has no idea

(Anonymous)
About a month after the birth of his daughter, John gets a call from Lestrade, and as soon as he picks up, the first thing Lestrade says is "How is Sherlock". John is angry that Lestrade doesn't seem to care about him and his wife and new baby, but as they talk it turns out a week or two ago Sherlock got captured by some people who were after Mary and who he was trying to catch. He was held for several days, brutally tortured and raped, but he managed to escape and get the perpetrators arrested. Mycroft then took him to some private hospital and Lestrade didn't know where, so he wanted to find out from John, because naturally he thought John would know about it.

John is horrified, both at what happened to Sherlock and that he didn't know, that he was so focused on his family he forgot to keep in touch with Sherlock. Now he has to help a traumatized Sherlock through his recovery and prove himself as Sherlock's friend. (S/J or platonic)

Sartorial Choices - John/Sherlock Suit Porn

Invalided home from Afghanistan with nothing but a paltry army pension and a squalid bedsit he can barely afford, John decides it's time to give in and take up the family business…

The one where John works in bespoke suiting and Sherlock is a very troublesome client who keeps ruining his very nice clothing in very bizarre ways.

Mycroft - The real reason why he doesn't want to see Les Miserables...

(Anonymous)
...is that he cries EVERY TIME he sees it, particularly at the end. And at 'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables'. And at 'I Dreamed a Dream'. And at 'A Little Fall of Rain'. He just can't control it, and is embarrassed by it. After all, he has a reputation to uphold.

Just, write anything based on this headcanon of mine. Major hugs and cookies if it also involves some Mystrade, but absolutely anything will do.

J/ S "I'd rather die tomorrow..."

(Anonymous)
So, you know the famous Pocahontas film quote: "I'd rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you." I'd like John saying this to Sherlock preferably in a Garridebs style situation. Sherlock thinks John is dying and is absolutely floored by this. He's crying, saying he feels the same, praying for John to stay with him. John barely pulls through but when he does, both realise they love each other and have the rest of their lives together.

GEN or (failed) John/Sherlock. John starts working for Mycroft and enjoys it. Angst.

(Anonymous)
While Sherlock is away and John is mourning him, Mycroft decides to occupy John by making him his secret service agent, seeing that John has got a potential. So why wasting it? Plus, it would give John something to do and the danger he needs; nothing really suicidal, but important and a great adrenaline fix for John, nonetheless. John accepts his offer. He gets the training and starts working for Mycroft. It helps him to heal from his loss, more or less, so he moves on.

Maybe he doesn't exactly become Mycroft's friend, but they get along just fine.

When Sherlock comes back, at first John is furious, but, eventually, forgives him, as much as he can at least. But he just can't work with Sherlock again (and can't really be the friend he was before). Thing is... He enjoys working for Mycroft more than he enjoys working with Sherlock (maybe this is partly because he can't really trust Sherlock again. If anything like the Fall happens again, John will be once more left with nothing. And now he has his new work that gives him everything he needs. John likes to stay strong and secure).

Sherlock is very hurt and sad. He's angry at Mycroft and blames him for everything.

I prefer no James Bond crossovers.

If any pairings are included, it can be John/Mary or John/Anthea, or John with some other agent (no johncroft, please).

Bonus points if there was a strong possibility of John/Sherlock before the Fall, they both knew it was there, but now it's no longer possible even though Sherlock is still very much in love with John.

A/B/O prompt

(Anonymous)
John Watson, cuddly fellow and generally nice guy has only a few things he is adamantly cares about: his tea, his genius/idiot flatmate, his jumpers, keeping alive said idiot/genius (for rent reasons), and taking his suppressants.

Most people don't know about the last one. Those who do make assumptions as to why. For the most part they get it wrong. Simply because John Watson is not an Omega, or a Beta for that matter. He is simply an Alpha, albeit one who takes sent/hormone suppressants and doesn't much mind following instead of leading.

I'd like to see:
exploration into why John would be comfortable with this, (past trauma, easier to work as a doctor, something to do with Afghanistan, ect.)

or reactions to people finding out about John being an Alpha (hopefully shocked and confused by it)

or if the author feels most generous both! (please)

Mycroft says: full monty.... well I think that's approval.... I think...

So, the world ends.

Zombies? Titans? Plague? WWIII? Nazis riding dinosaurs? Aliens? Entirely upto the author.

And to combat this, to even have a shot at surviving, humanity has to unite, forget conflicts and deaths, forgive misdeeds and work together towards a common goal.

Of course, psychopathic Irishmen with sexy blond boyfriends, consulting detectives and governments count. Please make it mormor-centric.

John POV, Sherlock/Mary, Male sexual Disfunction, Narrative Kink, Voyeurism, Exhibitionism

(Anonymous)
So, for handwavey Reasons, John can't physically have sex right now (not permanent, please, I don't want a huge angstfest.)

He still likes to watch though. So he tells Sherlock and Mary that all he wants right now is to watch the two of them together. He'll tell them exactly what he wants to see them do with each other.

Sherlock and Mary are into it. They both want to give him a really good show. They'll do anything he asks for.

Cap

(Anonymous)
When Captain Sherlock Holmes, dreaded privateer and madman known to take and leave ships on apparent whims, ordered the capture of Captain Jeffery Hope's vessel(the Mors Currum)he thought it would simply be something to help keep his crew busy and ease the boredom.

He never could have anticipated Captain John H. Watson.


After being shot in the shoulder and nearly booted out of the army, John never expect to be reassigned to a position on the home front a researcher facility of all things. So when he wakes from an unforeseen event at the Baskerville facility, out to sea. John really doesn't know what's going on, though if pressed he'd likely bet it was a Thursday...


Please someone run with this however you'd like

Bonus if BAMF John Watson is more shocking/amazing to Sherlock for his medical knowledge that his ability to kick ass.

Mycroft, Sherlock, child abuse, sexual abuse, mental illness, brainwashing

Twenty years ago, a 15 year old boy going by the name of 'Shezza' was rescued from where he'd been held captive for an unknown number of years, long enough for him to suffer severe mental trauma from abuse and isolation. Testing eventually revealed a hidden intellect which far surpassed the common populace, something that, of course, catches a young Mycroft Holmes's eye (not in a sexual way).

Using his growing resources, he takes Sherlock under his wing, becomes his legal guardian, and plants a new identity in the boy's mind-that of Sherlock Holmes, brother to Mycroft Holmes. The brainwashing isn't perfect. Sherlock still struggles with things like social interaction and drug use, he just doesn't remember a past which still affects him. Except sometimes, it does and Mycroft has to take him back in to reprogram him before he spirals out of control.

When Sherlock looks at John one day and doesn't know who he is, some of Mycroft's men immediately come to whisk him away. Where it goes from there is up to author.

Would love it if Lestrade was on the team that rescued young Sherlock and has an idea of what's happening with him, but just doesn't want to remind the man of his past in the hopes of sparing him pain.

Re: Mycroft, Sherlock, child abuse, sexual abuse, mental illness, brainwashing

Oops. I meant, sometimes 'he' does, remember his past, that is. And his brain kind of kicks out his Sherlock persona (which is really him, too, though) and reverts back to who he used to be. Or something like that.

Sherlock/OC. Underage, Rape, Punishment, Child Abuse. (possible medical torture)

(Anonymous)
When Sherlock is very young (possibly pre-teen), he becomes a victim of a very dark, manipulative person. It can be a tutor, a teacher at school, a doctor, who can use plenty of (at least partly unnecessary) medical procedures in order to molest him. The person is clever and manipulative and bad things happen over and over again. When Sherlock "misbehaves", he gets punished, maybe some medical forms of abuse are applied, as well as traditional spanking and such. Maybe Sherlock is partly brainwashed into thinking that punishments are well-deserved (though I don't think he can entirely believe that). Sometimes the abuser punishes him by selling him to much older men and watches as they rape him. When it's over, the abuser gives him a bath or a shower, takes care of and comforts him, assuring him that he/she is the only one there for Sherlock.

It lasts for months. And then either Sherlock's family learns somehow or the abuser gets bored, leaves (very traumatised) Sherlock behind and disappears.

Bonus points if we see adult Sherlock still struggling with his childhood abuse memories sometimes. And maybe it's the only case (or one of a very few cases) he's failed to solve since the abuser was never found.

gen, John + Sherlock, yet another alternate meeting

(Anonymous)
would like to see a minifill/oneshot of jon and sherlock meeting for the first time by getting stuck in an uncomfortable small elevator for hours, and also the floors it's stuck between are underground so there's no cell signal for ether of them

Why? Because just imagine the horror that would be having to deal with a bored Sherlock stuck for an extended time in a small space with no real distractions. And unleashing that on a John that hasn't met Sherlock before and is entirely unprepared.

would like for it to end off with the classic offer of a flatshare, however a huge bonus if no large chunks of dialogue are lifted from the show. I mean, obviously at some point he's going to deduce John again and come to very similar conclusions but we don't need a word-for-word reenactment.

((mycroft says "I have fallen" THATS NOT OMINOUS AT ALL))

johnlock, soulmate identifying marks

(Anonymous)
"the first words your soulmate says to you appear on your skin when they're born" AU

the twist- change the first meeting just a bit so that John's first words to Sherlock are some kind of compliment to his deducing abilities, and said compliment on Sherlock's skin is largely what prompted his interest in detective work in the first place (and perhaps knowing someone someday would be amazed with him helped him get through his rough spots)

-extra bonus if, in turn Sherlock's first words are one of his long winded deductions and since he talks so fast with so little pausing, John's got this great big paragraph of a soulmark. John has been teased relentlessly for his soulmark (pretty embarrassing with it being so long but also since his personal life is stamped onto his own skin) but in truth, John doesn't care about the teasing- his soulmate is clearly brilliant

John/Sherlock/Irene(or Mary). Omegaverse. O!Sherlock, A!Irene, A!John. Dub-/Non-Conish. Wetting.

(Anonymous)
John and Irene are both Alphas and decide to share Omega!Sherlock. Sherlock doesn't really want it. He's a virgin and doesn't mind remaining one. But maybe he's also close to his heat or is actually in heat.

Irene and John fuck him in turns, fuck him together when his no longer virgin hole isn't as tight as before (double penetration). They knot him. They bite him a lot, make him come many times, make him piss himself when they fuck him too hard.

Maybe they force a bond, too (yes, both of them bond with Sherlock, deciding to make sure he'll never be able to be without them), but it's not necessary.

Sherlock is traumatised afterwards.

Plot twist: someone (like Moriarty) is behind this and both John and Irene are affected by some potent hormonal drug when they do all those things to Sherlock.

I prefer Irene, but if you don't like her, instead of Irene it can be Mary (in that case pregnant Mary is impossible since she's an Alpha).

John/Sherlock. A/B/O. MPREG, Postpartum Depression. Omega!Sherlock regrets giving birth..

(Anonymous)
Omega Sherlock gives birth to a baby. When he sees the baby he, sort of, freaks out and rejects him/her. Suddenly, he's not sure he can deal with having a child, be a parent and change his life so dramatically. He thinks he can no longer be Sherlock Holmes, that he's lost himself and that he was right, refusing to have a relationship, let alone start a family before he met John (maybe he even starts regretting their bond, even though he loves John deeply. And how could Sherlock let it happen, he, who had always rejected those hateful social expectations for an Omega?!)).

When the baby cries, it sometimes breaks Sherlock's heart, making him feel even more worthless and depressed, but at other times it gets him irritated or completely indifferent; he won't approach him/her anyway.

John tries to deal with the situation, both taking care of the baby and trying to understand and help Sherlock. Sherlock breaks down and maybe even lashes out on him. Maybe Sherlock, while he was pregnant, somewhat expected that something like this would happen, but, no, they all told him repeatedly that his Omega instincts would kick in (bonus if the pregnancy was a result of failed contraception, but I don't mind if the pregnancy was planned).

I would love to see them dealing with this whole angsty situation and Sherlock's depression, maybe find compromises, find a way for Sherlock to keep doing what he needs to do, while someone helps with the baby (Mummy, John's mum?). If it works, only when he sees that he can be himself and use his brilliant mind like he always has, he accepts the baby and bonds with it.
