Filled Prompt Post for the Spoiler-Free Prompting Post

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.

John and Sherlock Dialogue Prompt
"Just lie back and think of England"

"I don't want to think of England."

Here's the twist: Nothing remotely sexual and/or porny is happening.

Either of them can be saying either line.


John meets Mycroft's wife. She is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike he would have expected.

Mycroft's Wife

Fill: #3

A bowl of chocolates sits on the coffee table in 221B (leftovers from Christmas, or John's birthday, or whatever the reason it is they're there).

One day Mycroft comes in to visit Sherlock and John or offer them a case and John notices his eyes keep wandering over the bowl of chocolates, longing look followed quickly by a minute and guilty shake of his head, clearly denying himself the small treat.

Cue John snapping.

"For God's sake, Mycroft, you're a beautiful man, stop torturing yourself and just take one!" John says, offering Mycroft the bowl.

Mycroft reluctantly takes a chocolate and looks up at John: "... Beautiful?"

Can be gen or M/J with a side of incredulous-and-a-touch-mocking-but-still-okay-with-it-as-long-as-John-remains-his-friend-and-accompanies-him-on-cases Sherlock.
I know it's pretty specific but if similar RTYIs exist I'll be happy to be linked to them!


Fill: #9

Sherlock and Mycroft used to have a childhood 'truce' signal for when they needed to cease hostilities and team up to verbally eviscerate a common enemy. Adult Sherlock uses the signal.
