9 parts of desire

johnlocked-ianthony  asked:

Hello Steph! Could you recommend some (preferably fluffy) fics where Sherlock experiments on John. I read "A Terrific Soporific" today and really liked it! So something like that?

Hi Lovely! 

Absolutely! I’m adding all kinds of versions of experimentation, so I hope these are to your liking!


  • A Terrific Soporific by antietamfalls (T, 11,269 w.) Sherlock, a long-time sufferer of insomnia, is forced to share a bed with John at a hotel while on a case.

  • Unmapped by 221b_hound (E, 2,385 w.) – Sherlock wishes to explore more about his desires. To this end, he conducts a kissing experiment in the afternoon of Christmas Day. John is all for experiments of this nature. They are going to learn a thing or two together. Part 9 of Unkissed

  • Unrestrained by 221b_hound (E, 5,377 w.) – Another experiment in desire - it’s not just what about what Sherlock likes to experience, but what he likes to do. It turns out that it’s much more about who he likes to do it to, and the way John’s desire has become bound up with restraint. Part 11 of Unkissed

  • Thermodynamics Series by entanglednow (T to E, 16,300 w. over 4 works) – In which there’s no heating and there’s a dead owl in Sherlock’s bed. Sherlock conducts an experiment in John’s bed.

  • To Sleep, Perchance to Smother Your Flatmate with a Pillow by Linpatootie (G, 5,308 w.) – Sherlock wants to conduct a sleep study of sorts. John contemplates smothering him with a pillow. Part 1 of Two Coffees One Black One with Sugar Please

  • Bed-Sharing Between Flatmates by testosterone_tea (T, 5,053 w.) – 5 times Sherlock had an excuse to share John’s bed, and the one time he didn’t need one.

  • You fit me, Sherlock Holmes by orphan_account (G, 10,077 w.) – An unfortunate series of events leads to John accepting being a part of Sherlock’s study in physical intimacy. As the days pass by, John realizes he might be in for more than he bargained for. He doesn’t entirely mind.

  • Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder by cypress_tree (E, 10,669 w.) – John helps Sherlock with an experiment: for an entire month, they are not allowed to touch each other and must remain at least one metre apart at all times. {{SOOOO GOOD}}

  • The Genetic Algorithm by Bitenomnom (NR, 3,786 w.) – Some problems defy the usage of cold, clean-cut linear logic. It is impossible to devise a way to take steps that ultimately lead exactly to an optimal answer. Sherlock believes John Watson is one of those problems. Part 28 of Mathematical Proof

  • Unspoken by PipMer (G, 2770 w.) – Sherlock wanted to test a hypothesis. About John. He wanted a question answered that he couldn’t just ask, at least not under normal conditions, because John would never tell him the truth about that.

  • Last Christmas by Mazarin221b (T, 3,911w.) – That Earth-shaking revelation, then, leads to a problem, and one that Sherlock realizes should be solved quickly, before John’s dates turn into girlfriends or boyfriends, because sometimes girlfriends or boyfriends can turn into wives or husbands while your back is turned. Every time John hums happily at the mirror as he shaves, splashes on a little gift cologne Mrs. Hudson bought him for Christmas, Sherlock is drawn back to that night by the fire, and the way John’s touch had made the world stand still. {{LOVE this one.

  • Too Visible by chappysmom (K+, 23k+ w. FFNet) – With his gift of being invisible, John has always worried about being locked away in an experimental government lab. Baskerville is quite literally John’s worst nightmare—and the hound has nothing to do with it. It’s all Sherlock’s fault, but will he realize that? Sequel to “Invisible” and “Still Invisible.” {{This was one of the first AU’s I’ve ever read, and I still love it. Read “Invisible” to make sense of this one}}

  • Experiments in Trust by oleanderhoney (T, 5k+ w., FFNet) – “I can glance at a dead body and instantly know their life, and where they work, and who their lover is, but with you I can’t tell what it means when you look at me and your eyes are so dark they look brown even though they are blue.

  • A collection of seemingly unrelated things by Volitan (T, 3k+w., FFNet) – An Axe Murderer, Five Stitches, a Banana and a New Pair of Shoes… They’re a seemingly random collection of things, unless Sherlock and John are involved, and then the items as a collective make complete sense.

  • LHR-HNL by scullyseviltwin (E, 35,066 w.) – In need of an endangered flora sample, Sherlock and John must make a trip to an unexpected destination.

  • The Semantics of Crop Circle Formation: a case study by Sherlock Holmes [unpublished] bycanolacrush (M, 41,710 w.) – “Look at these photographs,” I said, gesturing to the wall of crop circles. “What do you observe?”“Crop circles,” John replied.“Obvious. What else?”“Are…are those intestines surrounding them?”“Yes. The majority are bovine and ovine in origin. The farmers who have acquired these crop circles in their fields have also had a tenth of their livestock murdered and arranged thus.”“Why?” John said, presumably in a rhetorical fashion. I detest rhetorical questions. “That is what I must find out, John.”

  • Dying Changes Everything by whitchry9 (K+, 1k+, FFNet) – Sherlock is having an existential crisis and wants to have a near death experience like John did to gain some perspective. “Shoot me John!” he insisted, gesturing to himself.

A/N: Constructive feedback is always appreciated. Send me an ask or message if you’d like to be added to my master tag list.


You walked down the road a few miles, finally letting your tears fall. You were so tired of this. One minute you were happy, the next you were miserable; all because of one angel. “Fucking angels.” you muttered to yourself. “Nothing but worthless sacks of shit.”

When you were what you felt to be a safe distance from the bunker, you prayed out loud to your father in a voice he hadn’t heard since you were a child. “Lucifer, Goaal, I need you.”

I Thought You Were Different (Part 8/?) (Rogers/Barton x reader)

Part 7

When you woke the next morning, Steve wasn’t there; his side of the bed had already grown cold and the room was silent.  Grabbing your phone, you found it to be much later than you usually slept, quickly shooting to wakefulness at your realization.  But Clint hadn’t been by to wake you for your therapy session as he had for the past several days…and now your curiosity was awake as well.  You texted him with no reply, followed by a text to Steve, again finding silence as your only response.

The Voice Inside Your Head Part 9

Parts 1-8

*Demon Jack Gilinsky*

Part 9

 Satisfaction. Such an underrated sensation. It is usually desire that is credited to the downfall of temptation. But what about satisfaction? That feeling in the pit of your stomach that indicates you have done everything right, in that moment everything is just how it is supposed to be. Desire and satisfaction may go hand in hand, but there’s just something about how satisfying satisfaction can be. The desire to achieve satisfaction is what drives everything.

 He sits on the steps outside the gambling house, shifting to adjust to his unfamiliar form. The cool black marble of the stairs contrasts the heat that radiates off the surrounding flames casting orangey shadows across his fair skin. The disparity of a boy with white-ish blonde hair and porcelain skin surrounded by dark bleakness and red-hot pain is stark and, to an extent, alarming.

 Jack jogs up the steps, noting that the vague smirk on the boy is somewhat unsettling on his angelic face.

“Leviathan?” Jack asks, his eyebrow quirking up at the corner.

“Actually, it’s just Levi now,” his smirk deepens.

“That… That’s the form you chose to take?” Jack gapes in astonishment.

“Well, my usual sea serpent alias isn’t very discreet and you made it very clear that I needed to be covert soooooo,” Levi trails off, waving his hand.

“Okay but do you have to look like that?” Jack says a bit exasperatedly.

“Why?” Levi’s smirk transforms into a full-blown Cheshire grin, “Do you find me attractive?”

“Honestly yeah and I want you to keep an eye on her, not seduce her,” Jack admits brashly.

“Relax man, I’m just fucking with you. I know what we agreed to,” Levi stands up, his frame about three inches taller than Jack’s.

“I just don’t get why you agreed to this. What’s in it for you? You don’t like humans and I highly doubt you feel like helping me out of the kindness of your metaphorical heart.”

“You see, Jack,” Levi begins descending down the stairs gracefully, stopping only to address the cambion, “There’s a certain satisfaction in undermining your father.”

Jack swallows a sigh, watching Levi’s figure disappear into the flames. He’s been warned against making a deal with the devil, and he hopes to God that making a deal with one of the nine princes of hell isn’t just as dangerous.


 She sits in the café, two frigid hands stained with various colors of paint grip the ceramic coffee cup while her gaze follows the people entering and leaving the place. This is the fifth day in a row she’s come here after work and every day Levi has been here also.

 He’s wiping down the surrounding tables, aware of her people watching. He’s noticed how she’s very observant of her surroundings. He’s also noticed how acute her attention to him is, leaving little room for error. Her attentiveness is amusing. Humans have such silly habits.

“You really do come here often.”

She jumps slightly at the sound of Levi’s raspy voice disrupting the quiet buzz.

“I wasn’t exaggerating,” she laughs softly.

“Usually when people say they go somewhere a lot they mean like two or three times a week, not every day. But I see you’ve found some time to paint,” he nods to her hands, “Are you a painter?”

“Oh, no,” she glances down at the mess of colors, “I’m a photographer. This is just a mocking reminder that my one attempt at artwork was a complete and utter fail.”

“I’m not surprised,” Levi laughs.

“Excuse me?” she recoils in offense.

“Oh, my bad. I didn’t mean that rudely or offensively. What I did mean was that artists and photographers see the world differently; you capture reality, painters create reality. Your brain is hardwired to see what is already there and present it in its most flattering form, but painters, painters turn nothing into something by seeing something that isn’t even there. It’s amazing really, and not easy to do so I wouldn’t beat yourself up over it,” he explains.

“Fair point,” she grins.

He pegged her as an intellectual the moment she first walked into the café, and the way her eyes lit up during his explanation tells him he’s right. Humans aren’t near as mysterious and they’d like to think they are. All the little things they aren’t aware of give them away every time. You just have to know what to look for. However, most people are too clouded by their own preconceived notions and bias that the hints are near invisible. If only they could learn to step outside themselves and see what is so painfully obvious. If only.

 The high-pitched ring of tinny bells makes them both turn their heads towards the door. Sam walks through the threshold casually, an envelope in his right hand. Levi straightens up quickly, getting a read on the new boy as quickly as he can.

“Hey, I figured you’d be here,” Sam says, slipping into the chair across from her.

“Am I really that predictable?” she giggles.

“It would appear so,” Levi interjects.

Sam twists his neck to look at the barista, giving him a confused look.

“Can I get you something?” Levi adds quickly.

“Just a medium black coffee would be great, thanks,” Sam gives Levi a short nod of appreciation.

Levi smiles tightly, starting for the counter area.

“Who’s he?” Sam asks.

“New barista, he started last week.”

Sam makes a face that says something along the lines of ‘you creep much?’

“I’m here all the time alright? I notice when something is different,” she shrugs.

“The fact that he’s not bad to look at has nothing to do with it?” Sam smirks.

She rolls her eyes, kicking Sam under the table. “I’m not interested like that, he just gives off a vibe.”

“A vibe?” Sam stifles a laugh.

“Yes you fuckass, a vibe,” she whisper-hisses as Levi returns to the table with a coffee cup in hand.

“Here you go,” Levi sets the cup down, smiling politely, “That’ll be $2.06.”

Sam hands Levi the money, putting in a quick ‘thank you’ before he returns to his spot behind the counter as a rush of people come in.

“Alright you can explain whatever the hell you mean by that later, I want to tell you about this envelope!” Sam grins excitedly.

“Explain away,” she smiles back at him, his enthusiasm contagious.

“I was asked to model for this campaign,” he slides the envelope over to her so she can read the information for herself.

Her eyes drift over the inked words, her chest expanding with pride after every sentence.

“Oh my god, Sam,” she whispers in awe, “This is amazing.”

“I know right?! It’s not until a month from now, but I want you to go with me. It’s the shots you took that got me the job so I literally could not have done it without you.”

“I would love to go with you,” she beams, “I’m so proud of you, Sammy.”

“Not gonna lie, I’m pretty proud of me, too,” he laughs, not beating around the bush with modesty.

“You deserve this, you really do.”

“Thanks, babe,” Sam nudges her knee with his.

Levi cringes, his face out of their line of view. Pet names have always grossed him out, even in a friendly manner. Human behavior is so odd to him, so many unnecessary things they do.

 He watches them get up from the table, laughing and smiling as they exit the café. For a brief moment the demon wonders what it would feel like to feel a sense of satisfaction for someone else, but empathy is not something he posses so the feeling goes as quickly as it came.


Jack stands in front of a pool table inside the empty gambling house. Rolling billiard balls into the pockets is how he chooses to pass the time while he waits for Levi. He can only stand to be inside when nobody else is around since the energy in the room when it’s filled is overwhelming. Lucky for him, there’s some big commotion on a different level of hell this evening.

 Levi slips through the doors soundlessly, approaching Jack as silently as he entered.

“Hey,” Levi whispers in Jack’s ear.

“Jesus!” Jack jumps in surprise, his hand flying to the place on his chest where his heart may or may not be.

“He can’t help you here,” Levi chuckles, sitting on the edge of the pool table.

“Was that really necessary?” Jack scowls.

“It’s the little things,” Levi grins.

“You’re late.”

“I wasn’t aware I had a curfew, sorry dad.”

“Never mind. Was she there again?” Jack inquires.

“Oh yes. And I’d bet that she’ll be there again tomorrow. Creature of habit that one is. But there was something different about today,” Levi baits him.

“Go on,” Jack presses.

“Her friend Sam showed up. Something about him reminds me of a puppy. He seems loyal. He also has those big eyes that make him seem a lot more innocent than he probably is. Do we like him?” Levi inquires.

“Sam uh… He’s a good friend to her,” Jack scratches the back of his neck awkwardly.

“Sam. Good. Got it,” Levi gives a thumbs up, “I’ll remember not to kill him.”

“Oh my god don’t kill anybody,” Jack’s eyes bug out a bit.

“You’re no fun,” Levi pouts.

“You’re psychotic.”

“I’m a demon, dumbass.”

Jack pinches the bridge of his nose, exhaling slowly as he turns away from Levi. He knew this wouldn’t be an easy arrangement. Demons don’t have feelings and emotions are trifle so the importance and fragility of a situation like this is lost on them. They don’t care what the outcome is and the moment they stop having fun all bets are off. It’s a risky deal to make since there’s no security in it. But right now it’s all he has.

“Relax little cambion,” Levi stands behind Jack, “I’ll make good on our deal.”

Jack nods, too vexed to reply verbally.

 Levi starts for the doors, leaving Jack to toil with his feelings. Before he can reach out to push on the metal panels he pauses, scrunching his face up in a peculiar way.

“Something wrong?” Jack questions, noticing the hesitation.

“When Sam and your girl were leaving the café they were laughing,” Levi furrows his brows, “And I can’t get the sound of it out of my head.”

*Not my gifs (x) (x)*


s08 - Conceptual Garment; Infinite Mentality Dress.

The concept of the dress is to give a limitation to a wearer.
They can choose to keep it the way it is, or break it apart to learn and adapt new things within them.

-Risk; breaking your own wall.

The only way for the sleeves to be active and functional, the wearer will have to cut it off in half- in which the raw edges of the fabric and lining will be expose and starting to fray as they ages. The wearer can either cut if off by themselves while not wearing a dress- or allowing the one they trust cutting it off for them while they are in it. 

-Burden; weakness to strength.

The strap and it’s shape is designs to give weight to the dress and obstruct the movement of the body. However, if utilized correctly- it can be transform into many functionality that can be useful for the wearer. The aesthetic & silhouette of the dress will also changes according to the way the strap is being adjusted. [3-9] A wearer can add a snap buttons on their desire part of the garment/strap to get the best use out of the part of their body that once slow them down.

Aesthetically, the strap will create it’s own spiral curves at it’s twisting point when it’s being used. [9-11]

Conceptually, once the strap is loop and lock across the back [7], it will no longer be possible for any others to slide down the zipper pull all the way down without a wearer consent. [See collage video]

-Comprehension of an existing object.

The regular invisible zippers pulls is now replaced by a T pin, which is best known for it it’s versatile T shape, making it very easy to grab on to. [12-13] The pin is also bend at an angle so that the fingertip can slide underneath the zipper pull easily. The wearer can also close the zipper themselves by tying a small string at the intersection point of the letter T and pull the zipper up independently. 

-Garment to life.

1. An individual will be free from their own cages only when they are able to face themselves and another at their most vulnerable states.
2. Once a person understood themselves throughly, they will be able to make full use of what they’re given, even from the things that are out of their comfort zone. The true understanding often happens when the restriction becomes a new paths. 
3. A new paths come a new discovery, however- it is still important to remember all the small little details from the past and making it better. Once the smaller details is not overlook, all that left to do is to move forward without any hesitation, or expectation at all. 

Without risks, no objects or ideas will contain value.
Without an understanding of the objects, the risks will contain no value.
Without an idea, there will be no risk, no value on anything at all.
