There is no way this woman is not a criminal mastermind. Look at her, standing alone at the local watering hole, calmly pondering how her black market empire will expand in this latest political upheaval. Just look at those crafty eyes, that cocky tilt of her hips.
When the Empress of the Isles comes sneaking into the dirty dockside bar, rifling through pockets and palming coins from the register to fund her escape, this lady just offers a sly smile. There’s no doubt in my mind she recognizes Emily underneath the cowl - but does the smuggler queen care? Nah.
I know quite a few folks like this Hater moment in the Fremergency Fronfract and I noticed there weren’t really any good screenshots of it, so I did my best to get my own to share lol. I wish the quality was better but this was the best I could do :c
Welcome to my SU AU(actually I don’t know if anybody did this yet)
Meet Bilbo. Guess what his gem is.
Here we have Bilbo defending Thorins gem. Thorin got poofed by Azog.
My poor baby’s gem got cracked when he got chased by Smaug.
-all the people in Middle Earth have gems. They still have their own names and being called by your gem is rude(at least concerning hobbits) and considered classicist
-hobbits usually cover their gems. that is why you don’t see bilbos gem(it’s also very convenient for him since they’re LOOKING FOR THAT FRIGGIN GEM IN HIS CHEST!!!)
-bilbos summoned weapon is sting(surprise!), thorins is his shield(his gem is on his forearm)
-after the first run-in with azog everyone is worried that thorins gem got damaged. but bilbo got there in time :D cue thorins regeneration on the carrock
-orcs, goblins and the other creatures of morgoth are artificial and corrupted gem. Corruption can manifest differently in this verse (they can still be intelligent and stuff, hence azog and shit)
-Bilbos gem/the Arkenstone(there, I said it) only starts corrupting the people in his vicinity AFTER it got cracked. That’s why Thorin fell so fast ( jep, goldmadness is corruption here). Also why the shire isn’t full of corrupted gems.
BILBO DIES ENDING: Bilbo get’s shattered. Yes, sorry, just ignore this part if you want. He gets shattered by Azog when he distracts him to save Thorin. With the Arkenstone shattered Thorin and co.’s corruption disappears.
EVERYBODY LIVES ENDING: Bilbo only get’s poofed. Thorin shatters Azog and pulls a Rose Quartz/Rapunzel on Bilbo’s gem. BOOM. CORRUPTING GEM CORRUPTS NO LONGER; EVERYONE GETS DE-CORRUPTED AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER, GOOD NIGHT, THE END. also imagine the awesome fusions. BAGGINSHiELD FUSION!!! OH GOD!!
