The Blanket Fort Headcanon:  The Double Oh’s of MI-6

Obviously, James Bond isn’t really the only Double Oh running around and we sort of have a nice little Wikipedia article about the other Double Oh’s.  However, this is my own personal headcanon/fancast for the Blanket Fort.  I don’t have a complete history yet for all of them - but it helps the imagination immensely! :D

001 - Edward Donne

There’s a lot of scary, horrible things that could have happened to London over the past several years, including one that could have sunk the city into the Thames.  They never happened because Edward Donne was there to stop it.

002 - Wilhemina Murray

She’s Q’s mother.  Yes, she really is.  Dame M knows exactly why is it that she hasn’t aged a day and the two of them, with the legendary Peggy Carter, have maintained a long friendship over the years.  Also, there’s a lot of supernatural horrors that could have happened to England but didn’t, mainly because Madame Mina was there to hold the darkness back. 

A certain ancient Romanian prince may worship the ground she walks on. 

Also, a legendary Winter Soldier is not sure why the first thing he blurted out when he saw her was the Romanian word for “mother.”

003 - Annelise Song

There’s a certain powerful Triad in Hong Kong that no longer exists because of the woman they call the Jade Dragon.  And there are a great many young women and children whose lives are no longer living nightmares because she helped them get out.

004 - Julian Kim

It is an in-joke that Julian and Mina call each other “cousin.”  Julian has been a Double Oh for nearly as long as Mina…. and she actually brought him in to join MI-6.  Q has also been heard to call him “Uncle.”

005 - Dr. John Watson

Officially, 005 has retired. 

Unofficially, he’s still about on Her Majesty’s business, aiding and quietly protecting a certain consulting detective, who has yet to figure out his partner’s real past.  The British government is very grateful for his continuing service. 

Also, he’s one of 007′s favorite drinking buddies.

Minion 77 here for the position of Patron Saint of Conjured Currency. Unfortunately, my camera has decided it hates detail today. Pictured above is part of my collection of over 200 copies of Conjured Currency, including my five of my foils. 100 of the copies are currently used as deck backers for one of my EDH decks but I do not have it on hand sadly. I’ve always really loved the art for the card and it reflects the subject matter very well, but my favorite part about this collection is that I didn’t put it together all by myself. About 70 copies of the card I actively went out and got, but the rest of them, the community around me helped me find. In the past year it has become quite the trend that, whenever one of my friends spots me, they hand me at least one copy of Conjured Currency that they found when they were going through their collection. I’ve spent pretty much my whole summer so far and the rest of my summer starting tomorrow working at a cubscout camp, but when I return home for good. I’ll get the rest of my collection up.

All packed up...

Thirty-nine Steve Argyle signed cards… one week of bidding mayhem.

My thanks to Minions #5, #37, #55, #77, #95, #96, #116, #145, #154, #201, and #204 who have pledged to give these cards a new home.  Hooray, we did it… we managed to keep them all in the project!

They will ship out tomorrow!!!

So its been quite a while since I updated the pictures of my collection, but here is the new stuff. Just yesterday I finished my playset of deathrites and I finally got my first copy of lilliana. Also included in the pictures 2 of my 3 everflowing chalices, a Chandra Ablaze and some other cards, but the main point in my accumulation of Conjured Currency cards. My friends at college are all thoroughly aware of my love of Steve’s art, mostly because i tell them every five minutes, and I’ve amassed quite a few copies of the same card. Some of the copies I bought but most of them I got from my friends who knew i loved the art. The goal is to someday fill a whole binder with them but at the moment, I’m sitting on 82 of them.
