    Summary:

    He’s watching Sherlock crawl up his body, doesn’t have to see to know he has a blade tucked away somewhere, knows his body will react no matter what.

    “Do you know what this is, John?” Sherlock holds up a doll made of rudimentary cloth stuffed with god knows what. It’s wearing a crude rendition of John’s favorite striped shirt, denim pants and the hair is too fine and blonde-shocked-grey to be anything else but his.

    John tries to answer, has no voice, shakes his head.

    “It’s a poppet.” Sherlock explains, pushes the arms together and John’s limbs react, snapping to his sides and remaining there even as he tries desperately to struggle free.

    Author’s notes at the bottom of fic contain additional warnings as well as possible triggers.

Challenge 16: Something wicked this way comes! For your next challenge, write a fic that embodies the essence of the Halloween season. That does not mean that it has to take place during Halloween, but it should have a certain spooky (and fun!) flair. Some examples for the challenge are a ghost story featuring our characters, Sherlock and John attending a costume party, or Lestrade having to respond to yet another gruesome murder scene where the victim has apparently been murdered by a massive wolf. Take it in whatever direction you like, but keep it wicked.
As before, there are very few restrictions on what you can submit for this challenge, but here are some Guidelines (below the read more).
