Sherlock BBC Kink Meme - Prompting: Part IV
For such an observant man, Mycroft Holmes is incredibly blind. He can deduce from her bag that she didn’t have time for breakfast (and insists she go to the nearest café and buy herself a Danish pastry, to boot), he can see from her wristwatch that she recently finished an excellent book (and asks for a recommendation), he can infer from her smile that she’s in need of a little quiet while her headache calms down (and duly gives it to her, letting her sit in her office and get on with paperwork in silence for an hour).

Apparently, though, he can’t deduce from her hair, smile, bag, shoes, skirt, phone or anything that she has never wanted anyone more than she wants him.

Sherlock frowns. “Of course. When I wore your tee-shirt after you returned my socks, I assumed your silence was acceptance. You said my use of your jumper was fine, and afterwards you returned one of my tee-shirts, freshly laundered.” He gestures to the stripy jumper. “You are, of course, welcome to anything in my wardrobe, save my coat.”

jupiter_ash: Man and Beast
It was with a sick feeling that he watched them push a figure into his room. It was the day of the full moon and they had given him a playmate, bound and blindfolded, shoved into his cage with no ceremony and no apology.

He barely raised his head from where he was sat in the far corner, knees pressed to his chin.

The man struggled, cursing slightly as he slowly worked the bonds off before ripping off the blindfold.

“Bloody things,” he said before straightening his back and looking around. His lips pressed together as he took in the cell, eyes alighting on the cameras and microphones before settling on him.

The wolf growled but he clamped his mouth shut.

“No expense spared I see,” the man said. “Could have given us a bigger room if they expect us to share.”

He doubted that would be an issue for too long.

“Been here long?”

He didn’t reply but watched the man, tipping his head slightly to the side, his eyes narrowing.

“Afghanistan or Iraq?” he asked, his voice still a little hoarse from the workout the day before. [~20,000]

parsnips: Wherein There Is a Case, Several Mysteries, John Coming to the Rescue, and an Old Folk Saying
There is a mold of uncertain origin in the sink, and Sherlock refuses to tell him the purpose of it.

Sherlock *says* it's a mold, anyway. The sink in the loo has had unsettling streaks of blueish-black in it from very nearly the beginning of their residence. Mrs. Hudson has complained. John has complained. Sherlock has attempted on several occasions to call it an experiment, but when pressed won't specify exactly what the experiment is in honor of.

It's more than a little disgusting, and it has a very odd smell.

The one time John tried to clean it out, he ruined a perfectly good sponge, and the mold just returned a few weeks later regardless.

Why do people choose to be observant only when it inconveniences him? "A. . . friend of a colleague. Of Inspector Lestrade. A friend of Inspector Lestrade."

"Well, dear, perhaps Inspector Lestrade's friend might make use of the mistletoe I hung in your doorway," she says with a too-knowing smile.

The stranger was tall, dark and while perhaps not conventionally handsome he was certainly striking and instantly memorable, all eagled eyed and snappily dressed. His expression, however, when he held out his hand for John to shake in the lab at Bart’s was one of mild despair.

“John Watson I take it? Dr John Watson?”

John’s eyes flew wide.

“How the hell did you know that?” he made to turn to Mike, “Did you text him?”

“He didn’t,” Sherlock sighed, turning back to his experiment, “It’s really quite simple. Nothing else would have reduced Mike Stamford to sobbing with laughter other than introducing his friend Sherlock Holmes to Dr John Watson.”

If possible John’s eyes widened further still. His hand clamped a little tighter on Sherlock’s as they finished shaking.

“I know,” Sherlock grimaced as he regained the seat in front of his microscope, “Your parents had an unfortunate lapse of judgment but mine were genuinely sadistic.” [~1700]

raina_at: Five Things John Watson Will Never Tell Anyone
John’s never had a death wish. He never actively tried to end his own life. He isn’t trying now, not really. But he’s tantalizingly close to finally figuring out what the fuck is wrong with him, and he can’t stop himself.

He takes the gun and with one smooth movement brings it to his temple. His hands aren’t shaking at all.

He pulls the trigger.

There’s the click of the hammer hitting an empty chamber.

His heart pounds, and his breath comes short, and he’s flooded with an intense, almost painful kind of joy to be alive, to be breathing, for every beat of his heart.

That’s the moment he realizes he’s way more screwed up than he thought he was.

He isn’t depressed. He’s *bored*.

An hour later he’s standing on Waterloo Bridge and throwing the gun and the bullets into the Thames.

Three months into their deployment to Afghanistan, on the night of the full moon, John's unit -- jokingly called the K-9 unit, gathers naked in several trucks, four of them in the back of each, paired with two borrowed snipers up front.

The vast majority of the time, John's a Combat Medical Technician. He carries a service weapon meant only for self-defense and a medical kit that gets more use than he'd like. He wears a red cross on his bicep, and mostly spends his time wrists-deep in his comrades' bodies, trying to knit them together well enough for them to survive another day.

He's never shot a living person before.

But when he's not a doctor, he's this:

Naked but unashamed, shoulders and legs brushing with those of his unit-mates. Nervous and joking and hungry and waiting, waiting, waiting -- [3000]

etothepii: Show Me How to Stop Running
Before the wolf, his nightmares were about death -- his dying, his letting other people die, pain and suffering and the bodies of friends. He'd dream about mortar fire and gunshots and fear, and wake with a shout, the coppery smell of blood vivid and sharp in his mind, hair soaked with sweat. And he'd sit up, shaking, telling himself that he was still alive, that he was a doctor, that he was there to save lives.

After the wolf, he still dreams about death, but almost never about dying. He dreams about blood in his mouth, and running on four legs, and the sick, moist, ripping sound flesh makes when torn apart by fangs. He dreams about screams and pain and the spill of blood against sand.

But when John wakes from *those* dreams, he wakes up hard. [12,392]

sherlockbbc_fic: Welcome! (Prompting: part i) -- Silly Puppy
Most people think Adonia is a dog, some sort of crossbreed, the type meant to look as close to a wolf as possible. Obviously she can't be an actual wolf. Her fur is the wrong shade, too much brown, and she's a medium size, smaller than a 'proper wolf', as seen in countless movies. Nobody would mistake her for what she actually is. It's a game she and John have been playing so long among the civilians they almost forget it's a game.

sherlockbbc_fic: Prompting: Part X -- Fickle and True, by anonymous
"No." Sherlock crouches before the fireplace, reaches into the flames. The star feels small in his cupped palms as he pulls it out, warm and fragile, just like it did all those years ago. "It's my heart, so I get to decide what to do with it, and I want you to keep it. I don't want it back. I'd just as soon throw it away."

wordstrings - The Death and Resurrection of the English Language
Sherlock Holmes has recently grown aware that the problem must be one of language.

He and John Watson clearly speak different versions of English. Must do. It's the only logical explanation.

[wordstrings is the most fantastic Sherlock writer EVER. Hir Sherlock is just so delightfully insane, and the way s/he writes his thought processes is simultaneously amazingly strange and supremely logical. Hir Sherlock and Watson make my heart so happy, because they're so messed up and they're *perfect* for each other!]

drachenmina: Possibly. Probably.
Sherlock looks back, obviously annoyed. "John's in Edinburgh. And yes, with *her*. We're not joined at the hip, you know."

Unaccountably, Greg cheers up. "Would you like to be?"

Sherlock blushes. "Don't be absurd. John's the straightest man I know."

Suddenly Greg's in a *much* better mood. [1700]

etothepii: they tell me their secrets (will you tell me yours too)
In Afghanistan, the supplies tell him when they're running low, and the cars always, always tell him when strangers have touched them, and John gets known as having a knack (paranoia, his men call it, but he's never missed a single car bomb) for keeping his men safe. [2320]

sherlockbbc_fic: Prompting: Part II
Prompt: John came back from Afghanistan psychic. [sequel at bottom of page]

"Sherlock's general lack of empathy or normal human emotions might be why John hardly ever gets anything off him. Little things, surface things, sure. Nothing like Sally Donovan brushing against him and John knowing she's just had a blazing row with her mother over why she doesn't *just settle down*.

That or his thing is shit-scared of Sherlock's brain."

wordstrings: The Paradox Suite
John Watson is a man who is comfortable with paradoxes. He has learned to be. Has to be.

He is a good man, and he went to war.

He is a doctor, and dying is what people do.
