Important note regarding spoilers.

Please check the Sticky Post to find the newest active part and post your prompts there.

+Anon posting is most definitely allowed, but not required.
+All kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance--whatever. Go wild! :D
+Keep things neat! Read prompts before you post to see if something similar has already been done, and while you are encouraged to prompt as much as you like, try to fill as well.
+Please do not re-post prompts unless the last time they were prompted was on an older part. Simply put: ONE posting of each prompt per part.
+RPF (real person fic, i.e. fic involving the actors themselves) is not supported at this meme.
+Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 2000 and 4500 comments.
+However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. Also at 7000, after the freeze a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.
+Multiple fills are encouraged! :) Just because a prompt has already been claimed or written by someone, do not be afraid to offer up a second fill.
+re: hijacking.

Please refrain from hijacking a prompt. Hijacking may be defined as responding to a prompt by taking a portion of it and adding your own ideas about what should be added, changed or eliminated. In addition, commenting with off topic jokes or chatter.

By hijacking, the focus of the prompt can be lost, and inappropriate threads created. By doing this fillers may be discouraged which is something no one wants to experience.

If a prompt leads you to an original idea, please create your own prompt. The chatter or love posts are the proper places to share jokes or talk about prompts that have inspired you.
(prepared by anonymous)

Put links to your fills here. There are instructions on the actual post. I ask that if the part you wanted isn't up yet, just wait and one of the archivists will get to it, but please, once it is up, please make sure you post your fills there according to the guidelines. DO NOT skip out on doing this because it seems like too much effort.
Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mods would be happy to explain.

Your mods for this meme are snowishness, marill_chan and ellie_hell. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to send a PM or contact us via the Page-A-Mod post.

Please consider warning for triggery prompts (and also for fills, because some people read in flat view) and phrasing prompts in a manner that strives to be respectful.

Things which you might want to consider warning for include: Rape/Non-Con, Death, Suicidal Thoughts, Self-Harm, Underage Relationships, among others.

That being said, this is a kink meme. As such, there will be prompts that could offend you in a number of different ways. Not every prompt will have a trigger warning, and not every prompt will rub you the right way. If you have an issue with a specific prompt, feel free to bring it up in a discussion that takes place off the meme. However, flaming will not be tolerated regardless of origin.
You are highly encouraged to scroll right past a prompt that you dislike.

Remember, guys; Be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

They have time off and intend to make good use of it.

Bonus for awkward explanations to John or someone.

Mycroft is Stormageddon, not Sherlock.

Well, this makes soooo much sense. Seconding!

john / irene adler

Because of reasons

No jealous Sherlock, more "what do you see in her?" With a long lists of adjectives that apply to both Sherlock and Irene while John giggles.

rare pair


He sweeps her off her feet.

Sherlock sucks it up to keep getting free food.

Re: rare pair

This is killing me with cuteness. Never knew I wanted it until this very moment, but pretty please, someone fill this!

Jim is ill/hurt to the extent of needing extended bed-rest. Seb, whose house had long since been taken over by the mad man, becomes his reluctant carer.

Twisted fluff, with dysfunction and dubious relationships, but please no outright dark!Jim or Seb. Sexy-times would be just loved forever.

Re: Jim/Seb

Seconded, because... of reasons.

Mental Patient!Sherlock

While watching the latest episode of Psych, I couldn't help thinking to myself: 'Well, if Shawn Spencer can do it, Sherlock Holmes damn well could too!'

So, I want to see Sherlock take a case that has him going undercover at an institution for the insane as a patient, with John and/or a yarder also going undercover as a doctor and/or orderly, to make sure Sherlock doesn't get into too much trouble.

No one's all that shocked when it turns out Sherlock is very good at acting insane, but Sherlock is rather surprised to find he really doesn't mind being in the asylum. It's a nice facility, the doctors aren't complete crackpots and fun to run circles around, and, what with the pyromaniac who insists that his name is Guy Fawkes and the girl whose Dissociative Identity Disorder has given her personalities that range from Frank The Plumber to Shirley Temple...well, it's certainly never boring.

Bonus points if, in the end, John has to pretty much drag Sherlock out of the institution (maybe literally).

Extra bonus points if maybe Mycroft uses his omnipotent powers to extend Sherlock's stay a little...as a vacation, of sorts.

Re: Mental Patient!Sherlock

Oh my god.

So! Fanon tends to portray Sherlock as utterly indifferent to food, sleep and healthcare, if not violently opposed to them all, since his body is "just transport."

Let's subvert that a little, shall we?

Sherlock, while capable of ignoring his body's needs while actively pursuing a case, is a bit obsessive about his health and wellness at other times--after all, his transport requires proper maintenance to avoid a tedious (and boring) break-down. So in between sulks and experiments, he is meticulous about a specific exercise regimen, prepares his own multivitamens in the kitchen, and (since cooking is also boring) consumes elaborate and vaguely loathesome shakes involving things like powdered kale and raw eggs.

Oh, and if he even so much as suspects he might be coming down with an illness/injury, he badgers John about it incessantly (since all doctors are idiots, but John rather less so than others). Possibly this involves things Sherlock has looked up on WebMD.

TL;DR: Sherlock, when not distracted by shiny objects work, is obsessive about his health.

seconded because holy shit the mental images.

Moriarty is a Muppet Puppet

So every time I watch TGG I am continually astonished at how very much Moriarty's voice sounds like a muppet. Therefore my very cracky challenge to you is write a story where Moriarty is in fact a very life like (robotic? how do you get rid of the strings?) puppet being controlled by a muppet who is the real villain.

A cute puppy for anyone who manages to make Miss Piggy the puppet master. (Nothing against Miss Piggy of course it's just that her voice seems the most similar to Moriarty's IMO).

If you manage to make this non-cracky you will win the internet.

What is this IDE...?

By which I mean SECOND.

John makes Sherlock cry

"i didn't mean it i swear"

Re: John makes Sherlock cry

Seconded :'( (I was actually wanting to prompt this, too XD)

Based off of that scene in Tangled

Moriarty has Sherlock and John in his clutches yet again - or, an alternate ending to TGG, I suppose.

He makes Sherlock and offer - come with him, see the world and watch it burn.

Sherlock refuses, until Moriarty offers his incentive. Either he goes, or John is gunned down by the snipers waiting in the wings.

He has two minutes alone with John to decide. Here's where the dialogue comes in.

TL;DR Sherlock: I can't let you die.

John: But if you go with him, you'll die.

Happy ending please!

Re: Based off of that scene in Tangled

Oh, I like this. It could turn out to be a great story. Let's hope somebody will take this one. ^^

When Molly Met Lestrade

Pretty much what it says on the tin. They've been playing the hell out of When Harry Met Sally on one of the cable stations here lately and I'd like to see Molly/Lestrade fic based (however loosely) on the movie.

The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive

While sorting through my old junk, I found this:

It reminded me of our favorite Holmes brothers. Maybe they wrote up the list when they were kids? Maybe they add to it to spite each other?

Pick a rule (or several or make up your own!) and write a fill for it.

Re: The Creed of the Sociopathic Obsessive Compulsive

That looks like something Sherlock would have pinned to wall, with a screwdriver or pocket knife.

S/J plus Lestrade plus 'Zelda.'

John and Lestrade become gaming buddies.

They know they're probably way too old to be playing computer games but they've been gamers since childhood and it's just something they love.

When they both start up a game of The Legend of Zelda, John and Lestrade find that their lives are taken over by quests and obvious bloody puzzles that don't become obvious until you've spent 2 hours trying to do the wrong thing! *ahem*

Sherlock is annoyed. Why won't John pay him attention and leave that stupid, tedious console alone?

One day, when there are no cases, Sherlock sits with them in his pyjamas and moans about the game.

That is, until he becomes OBSESSED! And brilliant at it.

(If there's a scene where John finds him playing it on his own in the middle of the night, I will dance for joy!)

Re: S/J plus Lestrade plus 'Zelda.'


Dark!fic, any pairing

Based on the quote:

I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name.

Re: Dark!fic, any pairing

no guarantee it will be good or even complete.
