Needing for Attention - Request

Requested by @newts-fan-case:  think about how hot this would be: reader dry humping Sherlock to get him out of his mind palace, at first he ignores it but when he can’t take it anymore he roughly takes her on his way to his room (against the wall maybe) cause he is that desperate.
& anon: A fic where the reader is bored/horny while Sherlock is in his mind palace so the reader tries to get his attention by touching him and smutty stuff?
& anon:  Will you do a sherlockxreader imagine where the reader goes down on him and then he returns the favor?? (I have a dirty mind 😂)

Pairing: Sherlock x reader

Word count: 1,625

Warnings: Smut - unprotected, oral (female and male receiving), rough, dry humping.

A/N: I couldn’t help but to mix the requests because I felt like they would fit and this… This was… Wow.


Sherlock had been sitting at the exact same spot for two and a half hours. He didn’t move, he didn’t flinch, and he definitely didn’t pay attention to (Y/N).

She was used to it, really, but that night was different. Maybe the hormones, or simply her need to relieve stress, but she was horny as hell and she needed Sherlock to get her off.

“Sher…” She whispered flirtingly in his ear. The detective ignored her. “I need you to help me with a little something.”

Sherlock didn’t show any sign of concern about her innuendo. (Y/N) sighed heavily and started rubbing his shoulders. He was sitting at his usual chair. “Sherlock…” She chanted.

The detective remained indifferent to her. (Y/N) was starting to get desperate, so she did what she had never thought of doing. She got on his lap and started moving her hips back and forth as she pressed herself tightly around one of his thighs.

Mind Palace

Sherlock x reader

Note:So this is my first insert, even more, the first thing I wrote in English that wasn’t for school, so yeah, I might sound a bit weird but hey, who cares x) I just wanted to thanks @prettyxlittlexwriter for beta-reading it, like, thank you very very very much, I seriously owe you on that one, otherwise I probably would have never posted it and it would probably be exploding with mistakes, thanks :D If anyone wants some more, I could try, just ask me, I’ll see what I can do :)


“Get out. I need to go to my mind palace.”

And here he was again, kicking everyone out because of his damn mind palace. He even did it in the winter. He once expelled everyone out because they were ‘’too noisy’’. John and Mrs Hudson actually had to come down and ask me to give them asylum for the next hour or so… And I thought of moving into the third floor flat… second thoughts, good thing I stayed in the basement.

“Y/N?” asked John.

Lost in my own thoughts I hadn’t moved an inch. John was leaving the lab with Dr. Stapleton, explaining to her what was actually going on and why she was being kicked out of her own lab that she had so kindly lend us for our investigation.

“Don’t worry, I’ll wait for him.” I was the only one silent enough to stay when he did this. It wasn’t the first time I saw him doing it, but it still was something fascinating to witness. Standing there, his eyes still opened, blind to the world, seeing things no one else could, even going as far as moving them around his head.

If anyone walked in at this very moment, they would have seen him as a mad man (which he probably was after all…), but his every movement still seemed to have a certain precision and… grace. To me, it always appeared as if he led an orchestra. His head turning left and right, hand shifting invisible things through the air. I was hypnotized by his every moves.

Careful not to distract him, I slowly moved around the table, getting behind him and squinting, trying to figure out what he was thinking about. ‘’Liberty In’’… It had to be related to that phrase, we were just talking about it right before he kicked everyone out.

Playing the game, I started digging though all I could find related to the words Liberty In, making a list in a corner of my head.

Liberty… Freedom to do what you want or to go where you want? Liberty => Freedom? Statue of Liberty? 

In… Expresses the situation of something that is or appear to be enclosed or surrounded by something else? Expresses inclusion or involvement? Inn? Inside? India? Indiana? Indonesia?

What if it was a place? The name of a company, a store, a market or a restaurant maybe? But which country would… Oh!

At this very moment, the answer hit me. Of course it was a place!

“Liberty In-” Sherlock murmured.

“-Indiana. H-O-U-N-D, it’s an abbreviation…” I cried excitedly.
“… for a scientific project!” he finished. I smiled.
“Holmes, you are a bloody genius!”

Note (again): So yeah, that was it,thanks for reading, I hope you liked it ^_^

"Why do you make me worry like that?"

                                                                                   [Terror in Resonance Starters]

 “Ugh, Sherlock. I’m fine.”

An exasperated groan left her lips as she tilted her head upwards and then sat down in the chair, her fingers resting gently against her jaw as she studied him. He seemed to be very stressed out, but he seemed stressed out a lot more in general lately if she was to be completely honest.

  “You’re getting too worried. I can handle myself. You don’t need to watch over me all the time. I have my own claws and fangs thank you. Besides, all I did was go out to the stores for a few hours.”

The Woman honestly had no idea what the problem was that he seemed to see. He was off in his mind palace, she’d gotten bored, so she’d gone shopping. It was as simple as that. And apparently missing a few texts seemed to have set him off into a form of panic.

Update: Operation Norbury — thanks to @sherlock-is-my-pressure-point, we’re working on creating a site via firebase hosting instead of wordpress for now (because firebase is free, haha). I should secure the domain in the next few days (p.s. if you’d like to contribute actual dollars to pay for the domain please message me directly.)

What we will need to launch – contents, contents, contents! Here’s the site outline in case you didn’t see the previous post:

“Y/N?” You hear someone call out as they continue to knock on your door. You walk up and open it and see a familiar face push past you.

“Sherlock? What are you doing here?” You ask, closing the door behind him.

“I need a place to stay,” he says bluntly. He looks as if he’s deep in thought, but he also looks slightly broken.

“Why? What’s happened?”

“I died,” that’s it. That’s all you get.

“What are you talking about? Obviously, you didn’t die,” you say, pointing out the fact that he’s standing right in front of you.

“No, no, no, no. I faked my death. Yesterday,” he says, going back to his ‘mind palace’ immediately after. Sherlock being Sherlock, you decide not to question it.

“Ok…how long will you be staying, then?” You ask, slightly afraid of what the answer might be.

“Oh, I don’t know. Maybe a week. Maybe a month,” he stops pacing for half a second and looks at you cautiously, “maybe a year,” there’s the answer you were fearing.

“A year?” You say, disbelieve evident in our voice. “Why so long? What about John? Can’t you stay with him?” He sighs and runs a hand through his hair before walking towards you.

“Please, Y/N. I know it’s a lot to ask, but you have to trust me. I can’t go back to London, not now. Not after what happened…” He trails off but that’s all he needs to say.

“Alright, Sherlock,” you say, letting out an exasperated breath. If Sherlock was coming to your door with this big of a request, you know it had to be important, “but you have to do your share of chores,” he nods and lets out a sigh of relief.

“Thank you, Y/N. I won’t forget this,”


  1. “I’m just looking in my mind palace for a fuck to give.”
  2. “Do you need a shock blanket?”
  3. “I’m not a psychopath. I’m a high-functioning sociopath, do your research.”
  4. “Dear god, what is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.”
  5. “Don’t talk out loud, you lower the IQ of the entire street.”
  6. *Sighs* “You ordinary people fill your heads with all kinds of rubbish.”
  7. “You’re ordinary…”
  8. “I know I should respect you but I find it difficult because you’re an idiot.”
  9. “Problem?”
  10. “Shut up.” “I wasn’t saying anyth-” “You were thinking. It’s annoying.”
  11. “No disrespect but clearly you were born in the 80’s.”
  12. “Get out. I need to go to my mind palace.”
  13. “I dislike being outnumbered it makes for too much stupid in the room.”
  14. “You just don’t observe.”
  15. “Sentiment is a chemical defect found in the losing side.”
  16. (When someone tells you you have no heart) “Yes. I have been reliably informed that I don’t have a heart. Thank you.”
  17. “DOOFUS!”
  18. “Now we both know that’s not quite true.”
  19. “You can’t be allowed to continue. You just can’t.”
  20. “You’re spectacularly ignorant.”
  21. “I always hear ‘punch me in the face’ when you’re speaking, but it’s usually subtext.”
  22. “Alright. Spock. Just take it easy.”
  23. “Have you been reliably informed that  you don’t have a heart?”
  24. “No one could fake being such an annoying dick all the time.”
  25. “You don’t understand do you?”……“You still don’t understand do you?”
  26. “I can’t even bother to answer.”
  27. “Why can’t people just think? Why can't you just think?”
  28. (When someone tells you 'that’s against the rules’)“WELL THEN THE RULES ARE WRONG!”
  29. “You ordinary people are adorable.”
  30. “Wrong.”
Mind Palace - Conversion

So far, we’ve talked about the basic framework for a mind-palace, and the general idea behind setting one up. Today, we’re going to examine what goes in to actually internalizing information in a really concrete way. In order to do that, I thought I’d take you through one of my pet-projects that I work on when I’m bored - memorizing Pi.

NOTE: This is advanced. If you cannot use your mind palace to remember a shopping list, a list of 20 random words, AND the order of songs on your favorite album first, DO THAT FIRST. THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING. Everything after this will assume you are at a level where you are capable of the above tasks or better.

Now, since Pi is an infinite non-repeating decimal, you’ll never actually be able to get it memorized by virtue of the fact that there’s always one more number you haven’t stored away (for more information, please Google “Pi”). This element of futility makes Pi an excellent way to “score” your mnemonic prowess. You’ll never actually complete the job, but you’ll have a number to point to - you’ll be able to say, “I’ve stored X digits of Pi in my mind palace, and I know them backwards and forwards.” For me, that number is currently 78. Nothing crazy, but then, I’m not trying to win any competitions.

In order to memorize something like Pi, which (after you get passed the 3 and decimal point bit) is just a series of numbers, you’re going to need to figure out a few things in advance.
  • Chunk Size :
    • You’re obviously not going to make one gigantic image by just combining all of the numbers together. This is a bad idea for two reasons. The first is that, depending on how you set it up, your image might change dramatically with every new number you add. The second is that even if you didn’t hit the first problem, eventually your image would be so complex that you’d be better off just trying to remember the numbers in another way (perhaps a song?).
    • So what we’re going to do is “chunk” the number up into manageable pieces that we can memorize and add to a list. If you’re a world champion mnemonist, you may end up using a system that has 9 digit chunks. The system I use has 6 digit chunks (I’ll explain why in a bit). If you’re a total beginner, you can chunk 1 digit at a time too (of course, if you’re a total beginner, perhaps memorizing Pi shouldn’t be your first exercise).
  • Conversion Method:
    • We need to find a way to convert the data we want to remember (strings of numbers) into something our brain can more readily process (sensory-enriched images). So they question is, how do we convert a 6-digit string into an image?
    • Enter the PAO System (Person, Action, Object). The PAO system is one of the more popular systems for encoding any data that can be “chunked” into 3’s. Essentially, we convert the first chunk into an image, the second into an action, and the third into an object to create a little scene which we can place into one of the loci in our mind palace.
    • But wait, above I said that I use chunks of six digits at a time. Still true. We’re just going to use the PAO system to break it down further into chunks of 2. So for the purposes of this memorization exercise, the smallest mnemonic unit we’ll be using is a 2-digit number. Sound fair?
  • Setup:
    • The setup required to create a successful PAO system is a tad daunting. For a 2-digit PAO system, basically you need to think of 100 people - numbered 00-99 - each one of these people has a unique action and object that is associated ONLY with them. They don’t have to combine to create a sensible image as long as you can use any one to get back to the number associated with the person.
      • Ex1:     14 - Albus Dumbledore, Blackening His Hand, Elder Wand
      • Ex2:     15 - Albert Einstein, Writing Equations, Chalkboard
      • Ex3:     92 - Napolean Bonaparte, Posing For A Painting, White Flag
    • The above examples make use of a technique called the Dominic System, which you can feel free to Google at your leisure. Essentially it maps numbers onto letters, turning all 2 digit numbers into sets of initials, which you can use to associate people with numbers.
    • This is not the only way - feel free to use direct association as well (Ex: “01” could be George Washington).
    • From there, all you need to know is the location of the number in the chunk. We’ll get there.
Now, once you’ve got all the legwork done, you’re ready to actually memorize the data (I know, so excited).
  • Conversion Itself:
    • For this, we’ll use as our example the very first numbers in Pi. It begins, for those of you who do not know, as 3.141592653589793…….
    • STEP 1: Chunk by 6 - Since I already know Pi begins with a 3 and a decimal point, we’ll start just to the right of the decimal. This results in a 6-digit chunk of “141592.”
    • STEP 2: Apply the PAO - The PAO System breaks down our chunk into 3 pieces, resulting in “14 / 15 / 92” where the 14 is the person, the 15 is the action, and the 92 is the object.
    • So “14 / 15 / 92” becomes “Albus Dumbledore / Writing Equations / White Flag.”
    • From there, all you have to do is create a little scene out of the above phrases. For me, it’s an image of Albus Dumbledore furiously scribbling equations onto a large white flag, accidentally tearing it in places from his efforts.
Then, take that image you created and place it in your mind palace. Finally, just repeat the conversion step for every successive chunk of 6 numbers and add the resulting image to the next location in your mind palace.

As always, if you have any questions, need some clarification, or just want to add a suggestion, please feel free to leave a comment (or on Tumblr, just PM me). Happy memorizing!

    "Get out I need to go to my mind palace," Sherlock tells John. "Fine, I'll go do the grocery shopping," John tells him, "but you better be done when I come back." "Hello Sherlock," Mycroft greets him in his mind palace. "I don't need your help," Sherlock tells him, "I'm here to think about having sex with John." "I've been waiting for this day to come," Irene's voice comes out of Mycroft's mouth as the image of his brother becomes that of the woman. "I don't need your help either, go away!"
