Summary: ‘365 days of 221Bs’ challenge: a prompt a day, given by [ profile] atlinmerrick. Day 342.

Previous 221b: Pitch the woo

Today's prompt: swimming


Listen closely

“Have you ever had sex in a swimming pool?“

“Is this one of those experiences that one needs in life according to you? Like sex in a car?”

“All right, I admit that one was a failure. But sex in a swimming pool is good.”

“It’s wet and cold and there are usually other people. Can’t we just have sex in the bathtub again?”

“It’s not the same.”

“You don’t even like swimming pools.”


“John, what’s this about?”

John swallowed and looked at the floor. Sherlock grabbed his chin and looked into his eyes.

“Why would you think that?”

“Think what?”

John was still stubbornly trying to look at the floor, as if that would prevent Sherlock from reading him like a book.

“That I was bored and you had to come up with things to spice up our sex life. You don’t. I have tried almost everything you can try with up to three partners at the same time and…”

He stopped when John flinched.


“That’s really, really not helping.”

Sherlock sighed.

“John, I need you to listen to me very carefully now. Will you do that?”

“I’m listening.”

“I tried all those things and it never meant anything. Not like with you. There is nothing boring about having sex with you, John, and there never will be.”

Next 221b: Always expect the unexpected

The prompt was 'swimming'.

Wow, you guys, I am so sorry! It was really rude to disappear on you like that. But RL happened like whoa! Work was crazy and then suddenly this amazing woman appeared in my life. All this made me somewhat lose focus on S/J and writing in general...
Anyway, I promise you that I will finish this challenge with all 365 days done and not one day missing! I might however post a little sporadicly. Still love me? ;)

Way to come back to us! InsecureJohn and declarations are good things.

Of course I love you! (And I want to hear all about it!;-)

Or in the shower!

I have tried almost everything you can try with up to three partners at the same time and…
WHAT? Oh dear. I had forgotten Sherlock was not exactly a virgin when he met John! :D

I tried all those things and it never meant anything. Not like with you.
Aww. He was still a virgin in some way, though.

So what you're telling us is that you stopped posting because you fell in love? Well that's unfair because of course now we can't yell or whinge at you, we can only say "Aww" and "You lucky girl". Still love you! :D

Welcome back! We missed you.

And poor John. And ham-handed but ultimately (I hope) sweet Sherlock with his reassurances!

Lovely to see you back in action, sweetie - and on storming form; you always write the boys' insecure moments so well.

And of course we still love you... how could anybody not?!

I hoped you left us behind a bit cause it's summer and life is good and not for something bad happened to you and I'm glad to read that szerelmes vagy :)

Enjoy your life, I'll wait patiently for the remaining pieces! (At least I have some more time to figure out what I'll do without your amazing 221B's - saving that translating them, of course ;))

This was sweet :)
