This is a fic prompting meme based around the BBC series Sherlock, written by Stephen Moffat & Mark Gattis.

There are a couple of communities that have sprung up already, namely here and here and here, and also a very busy sherlockkink meme based around the Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law film, but since there's a GAP IN THE MARKET for a BBC Sherlock prompt meme and people are gnawing off their own hands in need of fic, here we go!

ETA: There's also a very dedicated meme here which covers all varieties of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/ spin-offs.


1) This is a Sherlock meme, so no RPF please! We don't want any legal trouble.

2) Feel free to post anon by all means, it's a matter of personal preference.

3) Remember to include a warning in the title for anything a little more "niche" or that people might have a problem with - non-con, dub-con, death!fic, incest, death!fic etc. Other than that, anything goes - crack, slash, het, gen, fluff, angst, whatever floats your boat.

4) Feel free to prompt as much as you like, but do try to fill as well as prompt; we don't want pages full of frustrating unfilled prompts!

5) Have a look beforehand to see whether your prompt has already been prompted - we want to avoid duplicate prompts as much as possible!

6) Please, be civil, be friendly, but don't be shy!

*Any problems, please message jjgd *

You know how there are things you just don't do? Not like you don't eat spoilt milk or set people on fire (and get caught), but you don't mention a particular football team in an area or you get mugged/beaten/murdered?

Endangering John Watson is one of those things. (Sherlock WILL get you. Others might find you after he's done.)

(Bonus points:
1: POV from criminal underclass
2: "Remember what happened to Moriarty?" "I heard they never found his body." "Oh, they found his body alright. His head, on the other hand..."



I want this so very, very much!


But it is too short to fill!


Goodness me. I wrote a fill! Alas no Sherlock/John. Plus I've never done this before so... *crosses

Just as he readied himself, a hand reached out and pulled him back sharply.

He turned, automatically reaching for his weapon, before recognition struck and he slowly, but surely moved his hand away.

He straightened, as did his opponent, who let his arm go abruptly, shoving it back at him.

“What?” He demanded belligerently, noting that his prey had long disappeared onto a main street, one he knew was populated by numerous working and monitored cctv cameras.

“Don’t you know who that was?”

He smirked. “Someone I’ll be seeing later if I’m lucky…”

“You fool.” The voice hissed back at him. “That’s Watson.”

He waited for more information. Finally he asked. “So?”

So? So – Sherlock Holmes’ Watson.”

He froze and he licked his suddenly dry lips. “Are you… sure?” His voice cracked on the last word.

“Of course I’m sure. You know what happened to that Moriarty bloke – yeah?”

“…They never found his body – or so I heard.” He answered cautiously.

“Oh, they found his body alright. His head on the other hand…”

He gulped and glanced back at the direction the notorious Dr John Watson had taken. “Right.”

He glanced back at his companion. “Reckon we should keep an eye out for him tonight? Just in case?” He paused. “Too many dodgy people around tonight. Don’t want anything to happen to the good doctor.”
