Prompting: Part XII
Giggles at the Palace
Please check the Sticky Post to find the newest active part and post your prompts there.

Prompts from this post can be filled on the Overflow Post

+Anon posting is most definitely allowed, but not required.
+All kinds of fills are accepted! Fic, art, vids, cosplay, interpretive dance--whatever. Go wild! :D
+Keep things neat! Read prompts before you post to see if something similar has already been done, and while you are encouraged to prompt as much as you like, try to fill as well.
+Please do not re-post prompts unless the last time they were prompted was on an older part. Simply put: ONE posting of each prompt per part.
+Until further notice, RPF (real person fic, i.e. fic involving the actors themselves) is not supported at this meme.
+Depending on the rate of activity, there may or may not be a prompt freeze when a part reaches 2000 and 4500 comments.
+However, there will be one when it reaches 7000. Also at 7000, a new part will be posted, and all prompting should happen on the new part.
+Multiple fills are encouraged! :) Just because a prompt has already been claimed or written by someone, do not be afraid to offer up a second fill.

There's a link to this at the bottom of the post. I ask that if the part you wanted isn't up yet, just wait and one of the archivists will get to it, but please, once it is up, please make sure you post your fills there according to the guidelines. DO NOT skip out on doing this because it seems like too much effort.
Do not be afraid to ask questions about how it works if you are confused! The mod would be happy to explain.

Your mods for this meme are snowishness and marill_chan. If you have any questions, concerns, comments about anything at all on the meme feel free to send a PM or contact us via the page-a-mod post.

Guys, I will only put in one reminder about this.
Think before you prompt about the way you are asking. It isn’t difficult, and it will only take a minute or so of your time.

I also urge you to consider warning not just for triggery prompts, but also for fills, because some people will be viewing in flat view.

That said...
This is a kink meme. As such, there will be prompts that could offend you in a number of different ways. Not every prompt will have a trigger warning, and not every prompt will rub you the right way. If you have an issue with a specific prompt, feel free to bring it up in a discussion that takes place off the meme. However, flaming will not be tolerated regardless of origin.
You have rights to an opinion, of course, just as you have the right to scroll right past a prompt that you dislike.

Remember, guys; Be civil, be friendly, but don’t be shy!

How about a change-up of the, one-of-these-three-people-gets-to-live-your-choice scenarios.

Lestrade must choose between Mycroft, Sherlock & John.

Bonus points for Mystrade.

This. I need this. THE ANGST WILL BE GOLD, whichever person he picks.

Fill: Ticking Down

A/N: IDK, felt like there was only one possible choice, really.

It's absolutely unfair. He can only hear ringing in his ears, staring dead ahead. A great noise like breathing grief.

Three cages in a row- Mycroft Holmes, John Watson, Sherlock Holmes. They're each bound tightly, thick gags knotted around their heads, their eyes trained on him. They're standing on trapdoors, nooses around their necks. He doesn't have a noose, just the cold barrel of an illegal gun pressed against his jugular.

He feels like his heart is trying to beat itself out of his chest. That way, it won't hurt as much when everything goes akilter.

"Two live, two die," the Irishman sang behind him. Three pairs of eyes flickered to the sauntering psychopath, but Lestrade's attention never wavered from the oldest. "Or you can all die together, really. It's your choice." He doesn't flinch away from the sudden breath on his cheek.

Mycroft meets his eye finally. He wants to choose him, wants so much to run to him and pull him down and wrap his arms around him and never let go, he wants to kiss him and touch him and feel him all the way down to his bones.

He knows what it'll do to Mycroft to live while his baby brother strangles beside him.

The image of his lover stars to blur, his eyes burning even as he refuses to look away. Mycroft looks calm, submitting, and that's the most hateful part. Lestrade knows what it'll do to him, but he's not going to look away, not for a second.

"Sherlock Holmes," he chokes out, raw.

Jim Moriarty groans, complaining bitterly about utter predictability.

Gregory Lestrade watches Mycroft Holmes hang.

Moriarty's men release the chosen prisoner as their leader melts away. He hears Sherlock throw himself at the middle cage as John Watson meets a similar fate, howling with grief, feels it echo deep in him as he feels his heart burn up, hammering itself against his ribcage like it just wants to burst.

There is only one path to choose, he thinks, tears bleeding from his eyes. Sherlock is still screaming but he's not sure those are words, the sounds garbled into something inhuman, a great living grief.

There is only one path, there ever only was.

There are three cages in a row. He doesn't have a noose, but there's a cold barrel pressed his jugular. He hears a noise like breathing grief; Lestrade stares into his lover's eyes.

Re: Fill: Ticking Down

I. What. Just.

Ow. Ow.

I don't know why but - this hurts just so - much - worse than if he'd chosen Mycroft.

You might as well take my heart now that you've broken it. *goes to weep in a corner*

Re: Fill: Ticking Down

Ooo! *gathers up heart and runs off with.*

Yay presents!

Wait, I mean. Don't cry?

Re: Fill: Ticking Down

OP here apologizes for not catching this awesome fill earlier.

It is heartbreaking in all the right ways. Short but perfectly constructed. Thank you for filling!

Re: Fill: Ticking Down

Thank you for requesting that prompt! It gave me all sorts of ideas. (as you can see. =p )

Re: Fill: Ticking Down

Why must you make me cry?!
That was just so... haunting! Ugh! Lestrade knows neither Mycroft or John could live without Sherlock. But, but... They can't either!
I don't know if I'm making sense. This kind of melted my brain a little, in that good way~
