Slavery AU Holmes Bros Angst

Both Mycroft and Sherlock have some how ended up slaves and are put up for auction together.

Stoic heatrbreak and brotherly feels as one's forced to watch his brother sold to the highest bidder and the other's forced to leave his brother to face it all alone.
Last minute salvation in the form of Good!Lestrade/John coming and buying the both of them.
Daring escapes.

Whatever you want anons, it's good with me.

Werewolf AU (Reprompt)

John and Harry are two werewolves who lost their pack. The need to be part of a pack overcomes Harry and she makes a deal with Mycroft to join his pack. Then, she forces John to join the Baker Street Pack (maybe she plays on the fact that John would be all alone if he doesn't come with her).

They settle within the pack and everything is going fine. The only problem is that John doesn't make friends with the other werewolves even if they are both friendly.

The turning point comes on the first full moon John is separated while running with the pack and runs into another werewolf, Sherlock, who declares John his mate.

1a) Most werewolves have the ability to get pregnant, but only when in they're in heat. Heat doesn't occur until after a werewolf has found a mate. So, it's a surprise to John when he goes into heat.
1b)Sherlock gets John pregnant and then makes a den for his pups.

2.) The other werewolves of the pack are most of the minor character in Sherlock (Mrs Hudson, Mummy, Not!Anthea, Lestrade, Molly, Clara...anyone really).

3.) Moriarty has a pack of his own and is a rival for territory.

Re: Werewolf AU (Reprompt)

I will always second this prompt.

Johnlock or GEN, Poker night

Poker night after a case, with Scotland yard. John insisted in staying (in my head John has gambling problems).

Sherlock doesn't see the point in the game so he doesn't play, instead he watches, gets bored and start deducing people's cards, getting frustrated at their stupidity ("Why are you calling with a pair of fours? He clearly has a full house!")

And here you I offer two roads:

-John's are the only cards Sherlock can't read (the doctor is really good at poker)

-John gets tired of it and stop looking at his cards (but pretending he did), and goes playing blind without people noticing. Only to confuse and piss Sherlock off.

Take it where you want from here.

Also: Give me whiskey and some Cuban cigars, because poker is not the same without it. Sex afterwards is optional.

Re: Johnlock or GEN, Poker night

I need this like I need air. Seconding so hard.

The League of Gentlemen Live... (comedian!Mycroft)

I've just watched the League of Gentlemen live at Drury Lane and I thought, why if it's not Mark Gatiss but Mycroft Holmes instead?
What if Sherlock, John and Greg went out to watch it live and didn't know he would be performing? Why he would perform? Doesn't matter... but how he managed to keep it a secret from Sherlock?

If you haven't seen it it's avaible, so far on youtube (part 1 below I hope the link works...) Part 2 (from 6:48)and 3 are just so funny...
So if someone thinks it would be great to write... that's awesome. I have completely no idea if it was requested before but if it was sorry for repeating.
Also it can be Mystade or/and Johnlock

Re: The League of Gentlemen Live... (comedian!Mycroft)

Omg. Yes.

TW: Rape, sexual abuse, psychological abuse - Mycroft/Moriarty, Moriarty/Moran, Moran/Mycroft

While in custody with Mycroft, nothing is working on breaking Moriarty.

At his wit's end, Mycroft rapes Moriarty. This triggers some sort of freakout (it may be because of abuse from a teacher/family member, an opportunistic mugger, or just Moriarty's feeling of helplessness and loss of control).

Busted out by Moran, he knows something wrong with his boss - Moriarty is distracted, more paranoid than usual, flinching when Moran tries to touch him etc.

Moran works out what happened, and decides the best way to get Moriarty back on track is rape Mycroft in front of Moriarty.

Whether this works or not is up to the filler.


Sally and Anthea both work for Mummy Holmes and are there to make sure that her sons are okay, but also so that they don't screw up.

Cue the Reichenbach fall. Mummy is not amused and takes things in hand. Of course these two help her as well. Cue Moriarty and his network getting to face three BAMF women.

Have you brought milk?

Sherlock come back to the BS221b after the hiatus, and John's first and only question is: "Did you brought milk?"

Do it as you like:
- H/C, where John is consciously speaking to what he believes is his imagination
- serious, where John last memory is of the day before Sherlock got arrested (he 'deleted' last three years, maybe believing that Jim is still after them)
-humor, Sherlock should really know what to bring to get John forgiveness

Re: Have you brought milk?

I second this! And I assume you meant "did you bring milk"


Inspired by the above prompt.

John develops a serious gambling addiction. It starts off rather small and most people are aware of it but no one thinks it's anything that serious or worth worrying about. John is one of the most sensible men in London after all.

But as things go on, the addiction starts to get a lot more worrying, with John getting involved in rather high stakes poker games and betting way more than he can afford to lose. Which he does. This results in him getting into debt, facing threats from loan sharks, being isolated from his friends because of his shame - all the usual consequences you get from people with gambling problems.

Sherlock of course can see what's happening even if John is doing a rather good job of hiding it from everyone else. He offers to help pay John's debts but John refuses, saying he can sort it all out himself

But he can't. He needs help and the hardest step is admitting he has a problem.

Bonus points for: John losing Sherlock's priceless violin in a game (I may be ripping off an episode of the Simpsons there). The one object which Sherlock has any sentimental attatchment to because his mother gave it to him a child.

Extra bonus points: Sherlock is tolerating of John's problems to a point, even after losing his violin - but loses it when hired thugs invade 221B to collect John's money/possessions and lay a hand on an innocent Mrs. Hudson. THAT Sherlock will not stand for and causes him to lose his temper with John.

I'd prefer it if Sherlock and John where gen, emphasis on close friendship, but whether it stays that way or develops into Johnlock can be up to the author, as long as it's not a quick 'fix-it' for John's problems.

Just want a lot of angst, hurt/comfort, bit of drama and an interesting look at the unstable side of John's character, with Sherlock having to be the responsible one for a refreshing change.

Post reichenbach gambler!John TW: rape, prostitution, sexual slavery

Inspired by the prompts above:

John turns to gambling as a way to get some excitement in his life after Sherlock dies. He's not bad, but one day the stakes start getting higher and higher and he can't make himself stop. He loses everything he has and still that's not enought so he offers the only thing he has left: his body. He becames the favourite sex slave of one of the gamblers.

Either John finds a way out on his own or he's rescue by Mycroft or Sherlock. Lots of John!whump please

Re: Post reichenbach gambler!John TW: rape, prostitution, sexual slavery

seconding so hard, I really want to write it myself if I thought I could do it any justice.

Vampire!AU with soulmates

As children, vampires are fed by their parents and extended family. After growing up and becoming independent they usually form a pack of sorts with several humans to divide their need for feeding (I'm thinking more like a platonic friends-with-blood-benefits kind of deal and not a dub-conny brainwash). This arrangement holds as long as a vampire remains unbonded, but from the moment on they find their soulmate, they can drink only their soulmate's blood.

Now, at some point Sherlock realises that drinking anyone but John's blood has started to make him feel sick... (Johnlock is kinda my OTP, but if you want to include other ships that's fine, too. Also the size and members of Sherlock's pack are up to you.)

Re: Vampire!AU with soulmates

Interesting... seconded. :)

Sherlock is secretly a big fan of musicals (Cats, Hairspray, Mama mia any and all) having been taken to one (when little by mummy) and regularly sneaks off to see them. John eventually finds out.

Minor hurt/comfort

kinda based on something that just happened to me. Sherlock sends John several personal texts which due to technology issues do not get sent until quite a bit later. In the meantime Sherlock wonders why John hasn't responded to his texts and maybe gets in a bit of a strop.


I am pretty much dying to see a blind!Sherlock. Circumstances of how he got to be that way are up to you, e.g. accident on the job, congenital, etc. I appreciate AUs, but I also love canon-continuation. Please make it Johnlock! Not squeamish about anything; go wild with this, please!

Molly talks Jim down from the rooftop

Sherlock knows Jim is unstable, but from his description of events, Molly figures out that Jim is suicidal before Sherlock would even think of such a thing. She convinces Sherlock to let her go talk to Jim on the roof instead.

Not shippy, really, just Molly's compassion saving everyone.

Re: Molly talks Jim down from the rooftop

Seconded seconded seconded!


Gerascophobia is the fear of aging/getting older.

Sherlock has this fear, but not for the typical reasons like dependency and fear of being alone. The reason he fears getting older is his mind--he's afraid that with age, he won't be as sharp and brilliant as he is now, that his mental prowess will deteriorate as he gets older and he can't stand that thought.

Bonus points if:
-something really small/inconsequential reminds Sherlock of his phobia and he sort of goes into a panic about it
-someone (preferably John, but anyone else is fine) tries to get Sherlock to talk about it, and provides some form of comfort?
