Steampunk? AU, mute/deaf Sherlock

Okay, this is a bit weird, and I'm not sure if this has been said before, but. I had an image in my mind of a younger Sherlock that can't hear, and thus doesn't speak. He somehow meets John, who's sort of a tinkerer/doctor who likes to make little gadgets that heal people in a non-traditional way.

John takes him in (dunno about Sherlock's family situation- maybe he's a runaway, maybe he's homeless or an orphan, up to you) and makes him a little device that fits in his ear and lets him hear. Sherlock is startled by hearing sound for the first time (the word "coltish" came to mind), and explores this "new world" with John. Not sure if there needs to be a bigger plot behind it than that, but you can play with it if you get an idea. :)

Re: Steampunk? AU, mute/deaf Sherlock

I'm working on a steampunkish AU at the moment, so I totally second this one! (the plot of mind kind of precludes folding this idea into it, unfortunately)

How's the diet? Diabetic!Mycroft

Sherlock doesn't mean anything by it when he asks it. It's just teasing, for fun. But when Mycroft suddenly starts to feel weird in the middle of an argument with his brother, it's not that funny anymore. His blood sugar's really low, and Sherlock knows it. He panics a bit, and starts fussing al over Mycroft. Luckily John's there to help.

Re: How's the diet? Diabetic!Mycroft

Yes! I'd love to see that, seconded!

reincaranation AU - They promise their only for eachother( character death )

Two characters (or one) die horrible deaths directly related to their love of each other. And they really did love each other. A deep , burning type of love. Before dying one promises that no matter what happens they'll always be waiting and the other does the same.

Cue normal modern times where the characters keep having love problems.They can not seem to fall into actual love with anyone because they quickly lose interest in the person, love was never a problem because they never felt a need for a relationship, were born aromantic/asexual or something of that sort. Both characters meet up again , eventually begin to remember (maybe?) , but feel incredible anxious about starting up a relationship because the last one lead to death. So, even if they do feel like they could love the other/ do they are also afraid,terrible terrible afraid for reasons neither can name.


Touching each other, holding each other close, talking while doing this. Just wanting to be with each other again.

Only one of the characters dies in some horrible way . The other ends up committing suicide .

Arranged marriage is the reason the suicide happens.

If one is of a "higher station" then I would love to see something where the person who is usually royalty/a noble/wealthy is not.

Other characters from Sherlock are there with them in the past . The feelings they get towards these people (such as Sherlock's reaction towards Kitty) are partially due to their past lives.

At least one main person /supporting character who had nothing to do with a past life having everything to do with the present one.


Yes, I am batshit insane.

Re: Donovan/Mycroft

"I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret; all the best people are."

Re: Donovan/Mycroft (Anonymous) Expand
Among his other injuries that resulted in John's retirement from the army John was facially scarred.

Feel free to go where you want with this

Another Pirate AU Except Not (Because The OP Guys Are More Like Vigilanties Than Pirates, Whatever)

Being the hopeless Sherlock derp I am, I have, of course, read the occasional Pirate!Sherlock story. Mermaid - I mean - merMEN AUs aside, they mostly have a very Pirates-of-the-Caribbean vibe, so apparently I am the only one who, upon learning of little Sherlock's pirate aspirations, immediately thought of One Piece.

It's Lestrade's fault. My inner fangirl is utterly convinced that he and Smoker are somehow related and won't listen to reason. *eyes wearily* She also has random psychotic fangirly fits. Stay out of range.

But seriously though, here I am, watching Brook (no, I haven't seen past this episode, spoil it and face my fangirl) take on some monkey spider thing and I realize:
Stupid tall...
Head full of dark hair...
Plays the violin...
Bone thin...................(omfg skull joke)


Now, I'm not suggesting putting Sherlock in with the Thousand Sunny's crew because the idea is quite frankly horrifying. Those personalities combined under one flag would cause the universe to implode. I'm thinking more along the lines of Sherlock exploring the Grand Line (because that's what you do when you get bored apparently, the four Blues get so DULL sometimes!) and all of its impossibilities being very much possible.

That, and picturing Sherlock vs. the Giant-Freaking-Goldfish-that-chills-around-Little-Garden amuses me greatly.

Um um um BONUSES!

-Sherlock has NOT eaten a devil fruit. He likes his ability to swim kthnxby and usually just outsmarts his opponents anyway.

-Long-suffering John is long-suffering. Seriously, out of all the things for Sherlock to investigate on this island, it had to be the local man-eating plants. "But I had to establish if they were related to a Venus Fly Tr-" "Saving your arse. Excuses later."

-Mycroft has a 'minor' position in the World Government (of course!) and is the main reason why Sherlock doesn't have a bounty on his head (or he does but its one of his disguises on the poster).

-Their ship's Jolly Rodger has a magnifying glass incorporated somehow (an art fill would be lovely here! *hinthintnudgenudgeelbowelbow*) MiniBonus: Before John and before his ship, Sherlock just had this flag he made himself (and talked to it obviously).

-If there's a certain character that absolutely MUST have a Devil Fruit power then I prefer it to be of the Paramecia group. Those are always so interesting! And their odd abilities inspire different and creative ways to fight and such.

OP - err - anon who posted this doesn't really care about relationship status, whether they be bad romances or rad bromances (but no incest because no).

TL;DR: Sherlock and company in One Piece universe! Gogogogogo!

(This is the first time I've worked up the courage to post a prompt. Pity the lonely anon?)

Re: Another Pirate AU Except Not (Because The OP Guys Are More Like Vigilanties Than Pirates, Whatev

O.o Wow, this is quite the detailed prompt, anon. You seem to know exactly what you want in your story. Why don't you try to write it yourself? I promise that, if you suck, we won't make fun of you or anything (right, guys?). If you rock, we'll heap you with praise. What have you got to lose?

Sherlock comes back and, after the initial anger and disbelief, he and John settle back into their relationship.

Except Sherlock suddenly can't stand to be touched or be at all intimate.

He was raped while he was away hunting Moriarty's web.

This needs to be filled!

The world is ending but ...

Theres some unnatural catastrophe that go humans first . Some people are 'lucky' and find ways of gaining more time for them and their loved ones along with the possibility of saving them.

Open-ended prompt is open for interpretation.

They do it by making deals with other worldly type creatures. Sherlock is one of these people do to it . The other creature is John. I also have a Mystrade, Lestrade/John and Johncroft craving. Rare pairs welcomed , of course.

Desparate plea for crack

I don't know about you, but life's been far to real lately. I need a good, amusing distraction. So potential fillers, give me your crack. Give me that idea that had you laughing out loud randomly while on the bus, causing the other commuters to give you strange looks. Give me that stupid ass idea that will not leave you be. Give me Sherlock solving the mystery of Papa Smurfs murder, give me John only able to come while role playing Pollianna, give me chemistry experiments that accidentally turn everyone into ferrets. The crazier, the better.

Warnings for mentions of sexual activities and hints of possible masochism. Also, reference to Cabin Pressure ;)
ALSO, THREE CHEERS FOR CRACK. Now, onto the fill.


Twenty-first of November.
Mood: concerned.

Lestrade suggested I start writing this down by hand, in a journal. He first asked if I could put these stories onto my blog, but I think that our clients would stop taking us seriously if they heard what Sherlock has been up to recently.

Enough babbling on about "mundane and trivial information, if such a word could be applied to such idle chatter", as Sherlock would say.

Speaking about Sherlock - I'm worried about him. Although he came back a few months ago, I don't think he's entirely right in the head. And this time
I'm not just saying this because there's a full set of toes in the
microwave (although I'm sure that's part of it).

Sherlock's taken to learning more about "how ordinary people live".

In the last two weeks alone, this has involved marathons of various Disney movies, calligraphy, stamp collecting and - my personal favourite - writing his own radio play, which he is convinced will become a 'favourite all over Tumblr', whatever Tumblr is. I've read the play - it's rubbish. Some nonsense about Timbuktu and pilots and coffee.

Update, 2000 hours: Sherlock hasn't left from his room for four hours. Is it time to start getting worried?

Twenty-second of November.
Mood: warm.

Sherlock emerged from his room at 10am today and presented me with a scarf. But not any scarf, no - a hand-knitted red and grey scarf with tassels at each end.

When Greg called with a case an hour later, he sulked and refused to leave for the crime scene until I'd put on the scarf and promised not to take it off until we got home. Sherlock, not Greg, that is. Greg wouldn't sulk, because he knows Sherlock would tell Mycroft and Greg hates being punished by him.

(Not that I've heard Greg say he hates it, but I've heard the moans that he makes. They sound painful.)

The meme's Delicious archive

Greetings, meme!

I has been brought to our attention that the meme’s Delicious archive isn’t working at the moment. We have contacted Delicious and we hope that it’s a temporary issue. However, if our archive is really broken, we have a backup of all the links and are considering a more practical solution like Pinboard. If you have any suggestions, we will gladly hear them.

Re: The meme's Delicious archive

Darn it! And I'd just figured out how to get to the tropes I wanted!

Omegaverse BDSM

Omega sub, in heat, writhing and desperate, tightly restrained as their dom* tormentes them mercilessly rather than mating with them.

Orgasm denial to the point of agony, nipple clamps biting hard into hormone-swollen nubs, and a sadistic thrashing with the cane, all without even the hope of a good knot at the end of it. A fitting punishment for a wanton, slutty omega, who flirts with strange alphas just to make their own dom jealous...

Bonus for hard bondage and the Omega being made to lick up their own lubrication from the floor.

*a beta dom would probably make it easier to explain why they're not affected by the omega's heat, but if you want to go for an alpha dosed up on surpressants that's cool too. As long as the dom retains their rational awareness and refuses to capitulate until the punishment is complete. (ie, when the heat is over.)

I'd prefer consenting kink over dark!fic but I'm easy about the pairings. J/S or Mystrade are always appreciated however.

Re: Omegaverse BDSM


Yes please!

Sherlock develops a belief that John has been replaced by an identical-appearing imposter.

John develops a belief that Sherlock has been replaced by an imposter who is pretending to believe that John has been replaced by an imposter.

Make it as serious, as cracktastic, or as recursive as you please.

Fem!John's one night stand leaves in the middle of sex. Sherlock's more than happy to take over.

Fem!John brings home a one night stand. They're in the middle of having sex, but once she gets the guy off he just up and leaves without returning the favor (maybe they get into an argument about something not even related to sex or maybe the only way she can get off is with fingering and cunnilingus, but he doesn't like giving oral so he just bails). Sherlock, who's been downstairs alternating between being totally turned on by the sounds coming from upstairs and fuming with jealousy, deduces what happened and is more than willing to give a very sexually-frustrated Fem!John everything she wants until she is thoroughly satisfied.

Re: Fem!John's one night stand leaves in the middle of sex. Sherlock's more than happy to take over.

Oh, yes please

ACD/BBC crossover - Watson (and possibly Holmes as well) starts contributing posts to John's blog.

I'm going to throw out two different scenarios here:

Watson somehow winds up in the BBC!Verse and John shows him how to make posts and comments on his blog. Watson is utterly fascinated by this magical means of publication, so John lets him take over blogging duties on Sherlock's cases. Basically just what would it be like for Watson to communicate the story of a case in this way, and how would he view this very modern version of Sherlock Holmes?

Alternately or in addition to the above (and much more wacky):

Both Watson and Holmes wind up in the BBC!Verse and they both learn how to use John and Sherlock's websites and start contributing comments and posts to both of them. John and Sherlock find it interesting and amusing... at first. Until Holmes starts arguing with EVERYONE online: Watson, John, John's friends and family, Sherlock's clients, Jim, Sherlock...

Gen is great or if any pairings Sherlock/John and/or Holmes/Watson.

tl;dr ACD!Watson (and maybe Holmes also) winds up in the BBC!Verse and starts making posts and comments on John's blog. Hijinks ensue.

Re: ACD/BBC crossover - Watson (and possibly Holmes as well) starts contributing posts to John's blo

I adore any ACD/BBC crossovers. I love all the Holmeses.

Random bottle of liquid appears on doorstep of 221B

Naturally, Sherlock is curious, and experiments with it. It's up to you what he does with it, and what it does to whoever is the unfortunate victim to drink the liquid inside.

I want to see what you can come up with. Go wild! :)
