Gen or Any/John: John's limp isn't entirely psychosomatic [tw: child abuse]

(Anonymous)
John was abused as a child (alcoholic father/extremely protective of Harry) and at one stage his leg was badly injured. Doctors at the time were concerned he wouldn't be able to walk again without a limp even after multiple surgeries, but he managed to. He just limps from time to time.

Fast track to present day:

Because the injury is so old, Sherlock doesn't recognise the fact that it's not psychosomatic (though recognises that John was abused as a child). One day when John's leg is bad and prevents him from helping out on a case - maybe the murderer/whatever gets past him? Sherlock, caught up in the moment, gets mad and blames John.

John internalises this and worries over it for weeks - far longer than Sherlock is annoyed with him.

Eventual reconciliation please with comfort for John.

If any relationships occur then bottom!John only please.

(Mycroft says: 'catch the man') heh.

Seconded!!

and I can just imagine the broody anxious-ness would cause John to have to hide the stress-flared limp round Baker street too.

John/Sherlock, John/OMC. Jealous!Sherlock. Angst. Hurt/Comfort.

(Anonymous)
John meets his army friend. It's a young, pretty man, who absolutely adores his captain and sometimes flirts with him (maybe John saved him in the past, so there's also a hero worship thing). While John is not gay, there are exceptions, so he doesn't mind this sweet young man's attention.

Sherlock is very jealous. He tries using the same tactics he uses to shoo John's girlfriends away, but it doesn't work this time. And if John finally decides to ask the young man on a date, Sherlock is absolutely distraught.

When John learns how much Sherlock (who - surprise! - has got feelings for him) is hurt, he comforts him and maybe chooses him.


John is dead

(Anonymous)
Sherlock comes back after the fall, only to discover that John has died.

Any or all of the following:

+ Mycroft didn't tell him because he didn't want Sherlock distracted
+ John's death was totally normal - he wasn't being a badass, he was just in an accident or something
+ everyone else (Lestrade/Molly/Mrs. Hudson/etc.) has more or less moved on because it's been a while. They're sympathetic and it's still sad, but they're not grieving anymore.
+ Sherlock's relationship with Mycroft tanks terribly because Sherlock feels Mycroft was totally heartless in not telling him immediately (even if it would have compromised the destruction of Mycroft's web)

[GEN] Any+Any: Non-sexual Ageplay

Character A, after a stressful couple of days, is struggling not to slip into little headspace. As soon as they arrive home they shut themselves into their room, and does what they do to relax (watches cartoons, plays with toys, what ever). Character B barges in on character A, who struggles to explain what they were doing.

John/Sherlock or gen, John's friends become Sherlock's friends

(Anonymous)
You know those stories with BAMF John where he contacts all his old army friends to help take down Moriarty, and they all have these stories about how awesome he is and how he saved them and they saved him? I enjoy those, but they always seem to have a sort of angsty feel when it comes to Sherlock. It took me a while to work out what bothered me, and ultimately it was that they had an equal claim on John as Sherlock did (or even worse, a greater claim), which is normal and healthy and yet, somehow, sad. Ultimately, I don't enjoy the disconnect between the two halves of John's life.

So, why not a story that connects the two halves of John's life? John's former army buddies show up or are called on or whatever and Sherlock isn't facing a group of rivals...he's meeting a group of Johns. (yes I realize how that sounds. You know what I mean.)

John's friends think Sherlock's brilliant. So maybe they have memories with John that Sherlock doesn't share...Sherlock also has memories they don't share. And if it's slash, and they decide to give Sherlock the Talk, they also give it to John. Because Sherlock is awesome too.

Bonus: Sherlock's friends (i.e. people who like Sherlock and he seems to like in return whatever he calls them) and John's friends meeting each other.

I second this so hard it hurts!!!!!!

Mycroft becomes what he is for Sherlock. Human Trafficking, Kidnapping, Underage, Rape, Drugs, PTSD.

(Anonymous)
Very young Sherlock gets kidnapped. Maybe one day he just doesn't come back from school. His rich family uses every opportunity and service to find him, to no avail. All they learn is that he was kidnapped by human traffickers.

Meanwhile, teen Mycroft observes the work of the police, detectives, Interpol and other services, and comes to a conclusion that they are just not enough. They never have enough power to do one thing or another, there's always red tape, they need permissions, warrants and such. He's always been ambitious and wanted to become powerful, for which he has skills and is getting a superb education. It's just... now he has to get this power sooner, for Sherlock. He doesn't even know if Sherlock is alive, but he's going to find him, dead or alive, anyway.

So, eventually, when he's adult, he becomes The British Government. With his now barely limited power, one day he finds Sherlock (in Thailand, Turkey, anywhere, really), who's a cheap, junkie prostitute, barely alive already. Sherlock can barely think now, and maybe he doesn't even remember he's ever had any other life, or isn't sure that what he remembers sometimes is real at all. Mycroft takes the broken teen home. Some revenge would be nice, too.

After quite some time in rehab and mental facilities Sherlock slowly becomes what he is. But he suffers from severe PTSD and keeps having attacks even years later. He knows it won't go. Maybe he gets back on drugs a few times, too.

In his mid-thirties he meets John. Eventually, John learns about his past and is very supportive and protective of him. He helps with the attacks and the two become very close (I prefer a platonic relationship between them with some physical closeness, such as kissing and cuddling).

Mycroft is actually glad John is there for Sherlock, because he, Mycroft, can't really give Sherlock this kind of comfort and his help is much more practical.

Sherlock and Mycroft do have their issues, but Sherlock loves Mycroft and is grateful for everything, and Mycroft knows it.


John/Sherlock, ptsd vs. sexual tension

(Anonymous)
After Sherlock's return he and John get into a big argument. John is very angry and is yelling and crowding Sherlock. At some point John comes to that revelation where he just wants to kiss the living daylights out of Sherlock, so he does. Unfortunately all the yelling just started sending Sherlock into a flashback/panic attack.
Happy endings, though sexytimes not required.

Sherlock meets Boondock Saints

(Anonymous)
If anyone can make this happen, you win the internet.

Sherlock and John are called to Boston to help track down Connor and Murphy. I'd prefer it if John decides the boys are doing a good thing and Sherlock follows John because, hello... it's John... and it turns sorta Dark!John and Dark!Sherlock, but they only go after criminals. John is a doctor and Sherlock is proficient in a multitude of ways to commit murder and keep the perpetrator unidentifiable, so they start helping out by cleaning up the scenes and maybe John helps with the killing but doesn't really want Sherlock getting involved in that aspect until it can't be helped or something like that...

But really, I just want Sherlock and John being called in to track down Connor and Murphy. That would be awesomesauce. Other than that, everything above is just a vague "here's an idea" type of thing.

Sherlock can't eat. Eating Disorder. Hurt/Comfort.

(Anonymous)
Sherlock doesn't eat much, but then John notices that Sherlock has stopped eating altogether. As a doctor, John recognises all signs of an eating disorder, so he knows he has to be careful about it. On the one hand, Sherlock insists that he doesn't need help and maybe gets angry, on the other hand he's afraid of getting into a mental facility (maybe it has already happened before).

Sherlock gets thinner and weaker and they both know it's becoming life-threatening. Sherlock knows he needs to eat, but he just can't. He begs John not to let him be locked up in a mental facility.

Since Sherlock can't eat on his own, John suggests another way. And then, with Sherlock's reluctant consent, John starts feeding him via a nasogastric tube, comforting him during the whole process and afterwards, since it's all really hard for Sherlock.

John/Sherlock. John gets Sherlock as a gift. Slavery AU. Past Rape, Abuse. Trauma.

(Anonymous)
Slavery is legal. Irene works with slaves. She trains new slaves, not only to please their masters/to-be masters, but also to help slaves survive their new "life", full of abuse and degradation. She also takes care of broken, brutalised and abandoned slaves so they can be somewhat on their feet again (if you can say such a thing about a slave). Maybe they are put to sleep (euthanised) otherwise.

John and Irene have met in the past. Maybe they have studied together at some point. For example, Irene needed a good medical training for her job.

They accidentally meet after John comes back from Afghanistan. John doesn't approve of slavery and therefore isn't very comfortable with Irene's profession, but he's still a gentleman to her. Irene can read people pretty well. She knows that John is a bit lost right now and needs to feel useful and help people again. She knows it makes him feel much better. Saving lives is his vocation. So later, after their encounter, she decides to send him one of the slaves she's currently working with as a gift. Sherlock has been broken by his previous masters and is in need of care, including medical care (maybe he has a disability and won't sell again, so he's to be given away to be euthanised).

John isn't thrilled at first. He, most definitely, doesn't need a slave. But he's the only chance Sherlock has got. John is a kind and caring person, not to mention he's a doctor, and Sherlock needs all of it desperately.

Can be gen or platonic love.

warnings: mature content, non-con, m/f, m/m, abuse, slavery, dom/sub (?)

a/n: I'm going anon for this as it's going to have some graphic sexual content, which I've never truly written before and definitely not what's about to come up (fingers crossed I don't embarrass myself out of it) but this scene with Sherlock and Irene as a starting point wouldn't get out of my head, so here I am. If you see anything that anything that needs extra tagging, please let me know and I'll add it to the warnings.



Irene flipped through the papers in her hands as she walked, high heels clicking against the stone floor of the back rooms of her estate where the import cases waited her approval. Right now she was due to look over one of their older buys, a used model on his way towards liquidation, if even half of what the history sheet said about him was true.

ID number 2533065. Age 36. Known aliases William, Sherlock, Scott, and Holmes. Not applicable here, though. Maybe she’d name him Snuffles. The list of owners was long and varied. Some were even missing, leaving gaps of time between them.

She rifled through the files until she found the most important one for this house’s purposes. Sexual history. Like most slaves he was bedded as soon as he reached the legal age of sixteen and continued off and on to warm others’ beds, mostly men but also the odd woman or two, though she noted it usually took a higher cocktail of drugs for a proper performance then.

Stapled to the last page was a doctor’s report, not one related to the main page. It seemed his last owner had the foresight to send his property to get a mental eval.

Sociopath, huh? Irene snorted when she saw the doctor’s credentials. He had absolutely no training with the low class civilization. Snuffles had never even had proper training, which was bound to cause a whole host of personality aberrations.

She shook her head at the stupidity of the multitude of owners who didn’t take proper care of their things. Like dogs, Class 2 humans needed training and discipline-you didn’t just give them orders without properly preparing them to follow through.

Behind her, an assistant took the file and settled it in her arms, pen already poised to make notes. Irene threw open the doors to room 32, where her newest acquisition waited.

Holmescest Deduction Battle Kink Thing

(Anonymous)
Sherlock and Mycroft view sex as a competition between them, the first one to orgasm has less control over their base urges, and therefore weaker. Mycroft isn't used to such energetic actions, and usually is the first to go. Until he utters some deduction on Sherlock, and Sherlock gets turned on by intelligence a lot, and things get heated.

Ok to take a crack-ish approach to this regarding what they deduce about each other, OP?

Mycroft says .moo shoo pork, and I fully intend to work moo shoo pork into this.

Gen: John and Sherlock are de-aged to about 10 - John is accidentally ignored (past child abuse)

(Anonymous)
Basically what the title says - John and Sherlock have been de-aged until they're about 10 years old

Everyone accidentally pays more attention to Sherlock - this is partially because he's more attention grabbing (not in a nasty way - just as a precocious child/plus you have to keep an eye or him or he'll be getting into some mischief or other!). Partially it's accidental because everyone was Sherlock's friend first; Mycroft, 'Mummy', Mrs. Hudson. They all instinctively look to Sherlock first. Either of because Sherlock's their relative or Mrs. Hudson still feels indebted to him.

Lestrade, on the other hand, notices precisely how quiet and easy to overlook John is. He's perfectly happy to entertain himself, is proficient in the kitchen; is just generally a very quiet and subdued child. Absolutely never misbehaves, or draws any attention to himself. He's also partially illiterate which doesn't make Sherlock want to spend time with him as he assumes that John is stupid.

Lestrade suspects (correctly) that John was abused and neglected as a child and slowly starts to draw him out of his shell. He begins with little things like reading books aloud as though to himself until eventually John comes down and listens - shocked that someone would spend the time with him. Then he begins to teach him board games and the like. Nice, quiet activities and such which are suited to the quiet child.

Eventually John comes more out of his shell and begins to join Sherlock in his more rambunctious activities.

I don't mind at all if they're re-aged or not. Just want lots of Awesome!Uncle!Lestrade. :)

Thank you!

John has to solve cases/puzzles on his own in order to save kidnapped Sherlock. Torture, Mutilation.

(Anonymous)
Someone (I believe Moriarty would fit perfectly here) decides to play a game with John this time. They kidnap Sherlock, torment him and cut a small body part (a finger or an ear) from him (though they can start with a lock of his hair to warm up). They send it to John with instructions of what he has to solve in order to save Sherlock. It's a game with rounds. Each complete round gets John closer to saving Sherlock. And if he fails, more parts of Sherlock come his way (nothing major, but it's likely fingers, ears, bottles of his blood, torn out fingernails and such).

John is terrified for Sherlock, but goes into his soldier, don't-fuck-with-me, mode. He has to think and investigate a lot, too. He's not Sherlock, but no one expects him to be. John has got his own skills. Mycroft helps him here and there, after deducing that John can't openly involve him, or anybody else for that matter. Sherlock will get killed otherwise. Of course, Mycroft wouldn't abandon his little brother, but he just has to stay very discreet and watch. John is the one in the spotlight here.

The game is incredibly hard, but John wins and saves Sherlock (maybe kills the villain, too; or Mycroft (or his men) does in the end), even though Sherlock has some missing fingers and an ear (or even both ears) and is gravely injured. John takes him to a hospital where he comforts him and somehow takes part in Sherlock's healing as a doctor (or he does it after the hospital, as Sherlock still needs care).

Bonus for clingy Sherlock, who can't bear the idea of being separated from John again. Hurt/Comfort FTW.

Photography

(Anonymous)
Sherlock didn't just go out and blow a load of money on a mega expensive, top quality camera and all the accessories only to use it once for a case in TGG. He already had it in because he used to do photography.

After a lull in cases, he decides to pick it up again. Imagine the experiments he could do with the photo processing!

I'm weird like that... Mycroft/Sherlock brother relationship

(Anonymous)
So, this is based off a really weird dream I had last night. Seriously... It's weird.

Mycroft takes forced vacation time every year. He hates to be idle, so he volunteers at a local fire station or brigade or something. He does volunteer work, ya know. Anywho, he keeps his Ice Queen persona and doesn't really get on well with the other volunteers, but he works hard so no one really tells him anything about it. Sherlock calls one day freaking out because John is like REALLY sick. Like can't get out of bed, running super high fever kind of sick. He doesn't know what to do and wants Mycrofts help. Mycroft calls Anthea and has her deliver medicine and food (maybe chicken noodle soup or wonton soup or just a broth). When he turns around, there are some of the other volunteers staring at him strangely.

+ if he doesn't tell Sherlock that he expects anything in return

++ if you use this line "John Watson is the only guarantee I have that my brother will not return to the drugs" or something like it.

+++ if Johnlock ending with Anthea unable to keep a smile off her face as she tells Mycroft about the progress of their relationship when he returns to work.

Re: I'm weird like that... Mycroft/Sherlock brother relationship

If you are weird, than I am joining the club. This sounds like it could be an awesome story and if someone doesn't pick this prompt up I might try to write it.... some day. Maybe once real life stops getting in the way; its really annoying like that.

Seconded!

Slash or Gen, Sherlock's child (warning: past rape/non-con)

(Anonymous)
John is a bit shocked one day to discover Sherlock has a kid.

-You had sex?! With a woman?!
-Not willingly.
-?!

Mother and age of child and who is looking after him/her is up to you. Take the story any way you like, so long as the core holds true: Sherlock was raped and has a child.

Bonus 1: Sherlock doesn't actually remember the moment of conception. A part of him doesn't fully believe it happened.

Bonus 2: The child is not a genius. Not even close. Perhaps the mother's bad habits even damaged the child in some way.

Bonus 3: Misinformed Yarder's reactions to Sherlock having a child.

Someone takes control of Sherlock's transport. Kidnapping. Force-Feeding, Enemas, Catheters. Trauma.

(Anonymous)
A villain (Moriarty? Magnussen? Someone new?) wants to take Sherlock's control from him, to destroy and humiliate him. They kidnap him, restrain him so that he can barely move at all (maybe he's placed onto a pressure-redistributive mattress to avoid bed sores), and pretty much take control of his transport. Maybe they don't do it on their own since they are busy, so they hire someone to make sure everything goes according to the plan.

Sherlock is intubated, so his breathing is under control (they can play with it when they feel especially sadistic). He's fed and hydrated through a tube in his nose and stomach. He gets relieved not when he feels any urge, but only when they give him an enema. There's a catheter in his bladder, so he can't control this either. They regularly make him sleep by giving him a sleep medication and waking him up when they see fit, and there's no other way. He can develop an addiction because of the medication (though they probably don't give him any recreational drugs, because it would be an escape for his mind, which they absolutely can't allow).

It lasts for months. Mycroft, John and Lestrade do their best to find Sherlock (maybe they have to work together at some point). Bonus points if they fail and the baddie just lets Sherlock go after a year or so when he thinks Sherlock is broken enough. Maybe he just leaves Sherlock near the 221B one day. Or he just allows John and/or Mycroft to find the place where Sherlock has been kept the whole time.

Sherlock is terribly traumatised. He can hardly start breathing on his own and needs a lot of help and support (including medical). There's probably an infection (being catheterised and intubated for such a long time has consequences) and a painful withdrawal. He can't eat on his own and probably has accidents that lead to him having to wear nappies.

Bonus points if he's afraid of medical workers (maybe the baddie's assistant was a medic, which seems logical here) and only trusts John to take care of him.

Sherlock has to "earn" the right to be a terrible flatmate

(Anonymous)
Everyone is shocked at how tolerant John is of Sherlock's quirks (if you can call leaving body parts in the fridge a quirk). Nobody realizes the real agreement between Sherlock and John - for every rude thing Sherlock wants to be able to do, they've negotiated a "payment" in the form of top!John humiliating/using sub!Sherlock in some kinky way. Could be as simple as John gets to demand a blow job every time Sherlock does X, all the way up through "if I ever catch you dissecting things in the tub again I will [insert painful BDSM thing here]".

Non non-con or dub-con, please - I'd prefer these to be mutually negotiated beforehand and it's up to Sherlock whether or not he does the whatever-it-is that results in "payment."

Miscommunication and angst, TW for suicidal thoughts.

(Anonymous)
A case goes badly and John gets seriously injured. It can be temporary or permanent, but we're talking serious with long time rehabilitation. It prompts Sherlock into slowing down. He takes less cases, he takes more file-only cases, he'll only go out on cases with John if they're relatively safe, if they're as dangerous as their usual cases, he'll go alone. He thinks he's doing the right thing, because he'll do anything to keep John safe and alive.

But it just makes John feel useless. From his point of view, if he can't go out on cases with Sherlock anymore, then Sherlock has no need of him anymore. His rehabilitation is slow, and he hates it, and he can feel his friendship with Sherlock falling apart around him as he's recovering.

There's parallels to his life in the army and he's not sure he could take being invalided out of everything he knows and loves again.

Gen or build up, please.

Adderson is one of a few Omegas in NSY. Sexual harassment, Sexism. Bullying. Humiliation. Omegaverse

(Anonymous)
Police departments, armies and other places like that mostly consist of Alphas, sometimes Betas. Omegas are rare in those areas. Anderson is one of a very few Omegas in NSY. Lestrade is not prejudiced, so he has no problem working with him. Others, however...

Anderson is a frequent victim of sexist jokes and mockery. He even has an experience of being sexually harassed at work. Someone calls him a wet-arsed bitch, knotslut or anything of that sort. Or maybe there are jokes like: "Don't slip on your own slick". Some people joke that he does have something common with the Freak (Sherlock is an Omega as well) after all: both of them always want to prove something or just want to be surrounded by as many Alphas as possible, which explains the choice of work, of course, so the both of them are simply attention whores. Anderson doesn't like Sherlock (which is perfectly mutual), so he doesn't want to be compared to him. He just wants to keep doing the job he likes without someone's dirty jokes, someone staring at his arse, or someone catching a sniff of his upcoming heat and discussing it with others.

It's up to you how he takes the whole situation.

Implied John/Sherlock is very welcome, too. But I wouldn't want Anderson and Sherlock to become friends or anything like that at all just because they share the same gender.

Bonus: Sally is not good. She's an Alpha, but he thinks she's different when she starts courting him, seems protective, and finally seduces him. But, once she gets what she wants, she tells everyone about fucking and knotting him, with details. And maybe it was a bet, too.

Anthea having one of those periods where your uterus decides to be your biggest fucking enemy ever. And Mycroft at first being really very confused as to why his PA is curled in a ball crying under her desk, and then, because he's obviously very observant, realizes what is wrong and goes off to get her pain medication, chocolate, and a heat pack. I don't even care if he's in a relationship with Anthea, or if he's just sympathetic to her pain!

(As you can probably tell, I am experiencing this phenomenon called MBFHM 'MY BODY FUCKING HATES ME!' and it happens once every month. -_- I have spent literally the entire day crying because I am in pain. And I just want someone to have to share it!! Why are we out of chocolate?!

John Watson's exhaustion

(Anonymous)
I'd love to have a story dealing with John's exhaustion - he works fairly long hours at the surgery combined with helping with Sherlocks' cases... That combined with a fairly constant ache in his shoulder. He must be exhausted so much of the time.

All the internet cookies if someone writes something to do with this? Maybe he ends up getting sick or something? Just lots of comfort and that kind of soul-deep ache that complete and utter exhaustion lends itself to.
