Drabble Prompts

Between the longer one shots I was hoping I’d be able to get some drabbles out, they’d be a fair bit shorter than the one shots… please tell me if you want smut, otherwise I’ll try to keep them more PG than some of my other stuff

Send me up to three numbers and a character for a drabble.


1.    “The skirt is supposed to be this short.”

2.    “How long have you been standing there?”

3.    “I may be an idiot, but I’m not stupid.”

4.    “Who gave you that black eye?”

5.     “I just like proving you wrong.”

6.    “Everyone keeps telling me you’re the bad guy.”

7.     “Quit it or I’ll bite.”

8.    “If you use up all the hot water again, I swear to god! You’re on the couch for a month!!”

9.    “If I die, I’m going to haunt your ass.”

10.   “Looks like we’re gonna be stuck here for a while.”

11.  “Take. It. Off.”

12.  “Well, you’re coming home with me whether you like it or not.”

13.  “I’ll kick his ass if you want me to.”

14.   “And that’s how you ruin a life. Congratulations.”

15.  “D..did you just make that noise?”

16.  “He’s a bad kisser.”

17.  “You can scream if you want.”

18.  “I didn’t know we were keeping track.”

19.  “One of them’s missing.”

20.  “Save some for me.”

21.   “You’re still mad?”

22.  “Come over here and make me.”

23.  “He creeped me out. I’m not gonna lie.”

24.  “I’m done! You can fix it!”

25.  “Can we just watch a movie and fall asleep on the couch?”

26.   “You leave whenever you feel like it.”

27.   “Don’t apologize if you don’t mean it.”

28.   “Well that’s the second biggest news I’ve heard all day.”

29.  “You look pretty hot in that.”  

30.  “I thought you were dead!”

31.   “We’ve become the clingy couple that you used to complain about.”

32.   “You just wanted them because they light up.”

33.  “That wasn’t very subtle.”

34.  “I don’t do hugs.”

35.  “Don’t talk anymore.”

36.   “How do I even put up with you?”

37.  “I said get rid of it.”

38.  “They didn’t just find out. They already knew!”

39.  “You’re not as quiet as you think you are.”

40.   “Just don’t buy a goat. I don’t care what you do, just no goats.”

41.  “I have a secret.”

42.  “I won’t let you get hurt.”

43.   “I’ve had enough! I want to be alone!”

44.  “I can’t stand seeing you like this.”

45.  “Me and the boys will handle it.”

46.  “You’re competitive and so am I, and it’s going to lead to a fight.”

47.  “Is there a reason you’re naked in my bed?”

48.   “Mind if I join you?”

49.   “That’s my shirt. So is that..wait?”

50.  “There’s a surprise upstairs for you.”

51.  “I’ll take care of it.”

52.  “I’m not your boss? Well then who is?”

53.   “They got you a present. Isn’t it sweet?”

54.  “Am I scaring you?”

55.   “After everything…I’d still choose you.”

72.   “You can’t just hug me and think everything’s okay.”

73.  “Is he coming home?”

74.   “No more pets. How hard it it to understand?”

75.  “I let you win.”

76.   “Can I do your hair?”

78.  “I told you not to jump on the bed!”

79.  “He’s pampering me, let him be.”

80.   “I’m worried about losing my job!”

81.   “Quit moving, I’m trying to sleep. Wait…are you…what?!”

82.  “You nap, I’ll stay awake.”

84.  “Don’t touch me. We’re fighting.”

85.  “I’ll give you a massage.”

86.  “You fell asleep in the tub?!”

87.   “We’re not playing strip poker. I don’t care what I said when I was drunk.”

88.   “You had a nightmare, tell me what it was about so I can fix it.”

89.   “If I win, you do dishes for a week.”

90.   “Use your words.”

98.   “You can’t banish me, it’s my bed too!”

99.   “Did you go through my underwear drawer?”

100.                        “Marry me?”

I love you, John.

I have nothing against John and Sherlock using pet names for each other or something like “sweetheart” (Even though these names are too cheesy for me to use them myself).

But my head canon is that Sherlock would use John’s name even more often than he did before when they get together. He was never in love with anyone else, he wanted to save the words I love you for John but he couldn’t. So when he finally uses them he wants to make sure that John knows that he’s the one person Sherlock loves and cares about most in this world.

The phrase I love you itself is meaningless to Sherlock, it’s overused and said too quickly. But with John’s name added to it everything suddenly makes sense. Sherlock practised saying it so often in his head always too afraid to say it out loud. Now he’s so relieved to be able to admit it without shame. Sherlock always uses John’s name to remind himself of how lucky he is to be with John and that he doesn’t ever want to lose him.

And one day…

John Hamish Watson, will you marry me?
