Welcome to the spoiler free Filled Prompts Post!
(This is the special section for filled prompts from the Spoiler Free Prompt Post.)
If you filled a prompt from Parts 1-23 and up, please use the FPP #1.
If you filled a prompt from Parts 24 and up, please use the FPP #2.

This is an archive created to make it simple for people to browse through both filled and unfilled prompts.

Let me explain how this works:

As you can see, this post has a lot of  comments like this one.

Each one of these comments stands for a page in the meme. They each have a numbered list of hyperlinks on them. Each of these hyperlinks leads to a prompt from that page, obviously! It's actually a very simple system-- the prompts are in number order in the comment that corresponds with the page it is on.

Now, that is only an archive of prompts. So here's where you, fillers, come into play! Once you've filled something (this will be easier for you if you remember what page the prompt is on when you fill it, but otherwise you will just have to look through the comments) reply to the comment that corresponds with your prompt.

Let's say I filled prompt number 2 in the above comment. (I didn't, but let's just say I did.)
I would reply to that comment like so:

(I'm not linking to it because I didn't fill that prompt. But you get the idea, right?)

It's very important that you put a link to your  fill, and not to the prompt itself.


THE PURPOSE OF DOING THIS: It will make a clear, organized list that people can scroll through and a) immediately know whether a prompt is filled or not, b) get a link to it if it is filled and c) find the prompt if it hasn't been filled to go fill it! 

I know it might seem complicated, but I promise it is very simple. (:

It is AMAZINGLY, VITALLY IMPORTANT that you put the number of the prompt in the title of your comment! Please, do not forget to do that! Also remember to link to your fill, and not the prompt. This will make things a lot easier for archivists.

The way you can see what's been filled is by the numbers in the title of each reply. Using logic: If you don't see a number in a reply, then it hasn't been filled yet! (:

+ Regarding WiPs: You are free to post them here unfinished by your own discretion. Whether you decide to do that, or one of your WiPs is caught in an archiving sweep, please do not start a new comment for updates to your fill! Instead, reply to your original WiP comment with either an "Updated" or a "Finished" or what-have-you.

+ IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC... a good way to do this is to simply go to "Find" on your browser (Ctrl + F) and search for buzzwords. (i.e. "tentacles" or "wings" or "cat.") Generally our paraphrased prompts will include buzzwords from the original prompt. (:

If you have any questions regarding the Filled Prompts Post, please don't hesitate to ask. Send a PM to ellie_hell or ask on the Page-A-Mod post.

Fill #13 (2nd fill)

Original prompt:

Original link:

Almost immediately after being invalided back to England, still recovering from malaria and barely able to move his left arm, limping something terrible, John leaves the hospital against medical advice and goes to the halfway house. He's ill and weak and depressed and takes to wandering aimlessly like a homeless person to keep from playing with his gun too much. Then one day he sees an old woman being mugged and the soldier inside of him jumps to attention; even though he's just a skinny slip of the man he used to be, he intervenes and manages to fight off the ruffians with his cane and pure adrenaline.

Pretty much right after it's over and he's made sure the old lady's alright, he nearly collapses from the adrenaline crash, too weak and hurt to go very far. The old lady takes pity on him and helps him back to her house for a lie-down since his cane got all bent out of shape. She's so grateful and sympathetic for the soldier that she offers him a place in her upstairs flat - well, he'd have to share with the young man who already made a deal on the place, but he's really a nice boy once you get past the fact that he's just been through detox and is going to an outpatient rehab program...

TL;DR Withdrawing!Sherlock and sickly!injured!John meet a few months earlier than in show canon. Lots of whump and h/c and general sickliness. Bonus points if at one point they have to support one another going up the stairs. Gen or S/J is good with me.
