This is a fic prompting meme based around the BBC series Sherlock, written by Stephen Moffat & Mark Gattis.

There are a couple of communities that have sprung up already, namely here and here and here, and also a very busy sherlockkink meme based around the Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law film, but since there's a GAP IN THE MARKET for a BBC Sherlock prompt meme and people are gnawing off their own hands in need of fic, here we go!

ETA: There's also a very dedicated meme here which covers all varieties of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/ spin-offs.


1) This is a Sherlock meme, so no RPF please! We don't want any legal trouble.

2) Feel free to post anon by all means, it's a matter of personal preference.

3) Remember to include a warning in the title for anything a little more "niche" or that people might have a problem with - non-con, dub-con, death!fic, incest, death!fic etc. Other than that, anything goes - crack, slash, het, gen, fluff, angst, whatever floats your boat.

4) Feel free to prompt as much as you like, but do try to fill as well as prompt; we don't want pages full of frustrating unfilled prompts!

5) Have a look beforehand to see whether your prompt has already been prompted - we want to avoid duplicate prompts as much as possible!

6) Please, be civil, be friendly, but don't be shy!

If Sherlock is married to his work, Lestrade TOTALLY COUNTS under that.

(Bonus for bemused John. Or bemused Lestrade. BEMUSEMENT IN GENERAL.)

" I'd like to ask if you'll marry me."

"Really? Are you going to?"

"That was—Let me try again. Will you do it? Marry me?"

"I'm not sure. Must I move in? I have a flatshare. With John."

"Don't tell me you and John—"

"No, no. He's perfectly heterosexual. He's just so forgiving about my moods. I'm afraid you might make a nuisance of yourself."

"Good Lord, Sherlock."

"I already stopped the cocaine habit for you. We weren't even steadily dating and you've still used against me, I might add. Even I know that's improprietous. Our co-habitation, if necessary, might also bring in legal complications if the police force has reason to suspect you've provided me with confidential information. I could destroy their case in court, but it's more convenient that they assume I'm the murderer as that suspicion is cleared once the case is solved."

"I'll remind you it's a yes or no question."

"Such a pivotal proposition requires careful examination."

"The way things have been going I assumed you already thought about it!"


"Well, then—"

"No, I hadn't previously. Yes, I've decided I'll marry you."

"What makes you think I still want you?"

"You're still fiddling with the engagement band you're holding beneath the table. You can move into the flat next week. I'll clear out half the dresser but don't expect use of the closet. It's not for clothes."

"Into the flat? With you and John?"

"I don't assume he's going anywhere. When he last asked if I had a boyfriend he said he'd be fine with anything."

"He knows that you and I…?"

"Not at all, but John is a man of his word."

"Well! This is exactly as ridiculous as I thought it would be."

"Yet you still asked."

Oh, I am a puddle!


"Well! This is exactly as ridiculous as I thought it would be."

Perfection~ XD

Anon, I love you. Sweet and funny and brilliant. And yay! to more Lestrade - there really isn't enough, and I already sort of adore him. Nice job! :D

Oh this is so sweet and mixed up and them. I love it. :D

Adore it! Some them! "don't expect use of the closet. It's not for clothes." I wanna know what he DOES keep in there....

(Captcha says: casual harmony)

Thank you! And, it's a mystery to everybody. :|

This is exactly how this conversation would go. Lestrade has to put up with so much, but he keeps coming back.

awwww *pets Lestrade* that was so cute... I think Sherlock would tear him to pieces in the first week, but that was so so cute nonetheless... Besides, I`ve always had a soft spot for Rupert Everett...

Graves dude - Rupert Graves...however, now you mention it - Everette's Holmes and Graves' Lestrade would be AWESOME together :D

DAMN YOU - now I've got another damn impossible pairing

Sorry, my bad. I was reading this at work and I comment fast and furious so I could alt/tab the window... But I like Rupert Everett too so no biggie...
There are so many impossible pairings out there. Thank God for fanfiction, boy.

omg my heart, I love it!
