I was amazingly lucky enough to snag one of the much coveted commission spots from @hansaera ! !
This is my OC Athena snuggling with her wolf pup Kain and her other wolf, Solas. (:D)
Saera was amazing to work with and sent me frequent updates on the status of my piece. She was very open to ideas and I look forward to being able to commission her in the future. She is about to open another batch and I highly highly highly recommend doing it. You won’t regret it.
Captain Thorin Durin was already having
a very bad day when his nephews told him about the blind passenger
they had found in the cargo hold.
The Oakenshield was running low
on everything: freight, fuel, finances, and had barely enough crew
for a space ship of that size. The last backwater planet they had
visited had proved a total disappointment, with stubborn xenophobic
inhabitants unwilling to share more than the barest necessities with
a dwarven trader.
And now this: a member of said
population on his ship. He grimaced disapprovingly at the small
chubby man, who looked totally and completely out of place on the
Stubbornly insisting to be on an
important journey, to find the lost planet Erebor, none less. As if
anybody knew where to go for that.
“I have a map.” the hobbit stated
with trembling dignity.
“A map, laddie?” First mate Dwalin
snorted. “We all know that map. It is worthless without the
accompanying log entries.”
“ >>Captain Thrain Durin of
the Mahal’s Beard…<<”, the stranger started to recite
in heavily accented Khuzdul.”>>…as we are now leaving
our beloved home to the monstrosity of the red fire storm, it is my
duty to put down the exact position of the Dale sun in the Rhovanion
He stopped, and threw a shy smile at
Thorin. “Told you. My map is special.”
What? How? Impossible! This shire
dweller was in possession of the long lost way to their ancestral
home, claiming that the map and the log keys (which he could neither
read nor understand) were given to him by a friend.
And this “friend” had sent him on
the mad journey to find it, hidden on Thorin’s ship.
It had to be a trick, some kind of foul
But what if it was true? Could they
really let that one chance slip through their fingers?
And how were they to deal with someone
so totally unused to space as this Mr. Baggins?
— — —
Well, I had this idea for a
Bagginshield space AU, with the slight twist of Bilbo being
the one bringing the map and the key along.
I am not going to write a story, but
throwing this out here at you in case anybody might be interested.
Read more to find out where the map is

course they searched him thoroughly…)
Mary is the pearl of the Borgias and a the topic of the deal between Mycroft and Moriarty
First things first: Sorry that this will be soooooo long, I’ll really try to keep it short but I don’t think it will work out :) Secondly: I’m super sorry about my english - I will try to correct it when I find time, but that might take a while. I hope it’s understandable :)
I wrote something about Mycroft
knowing where Moriarty (or his body) is and in that I mentioned why
Mycroft and Jim could made a deal (see here).
This first occurred to me after I’ve
read this lovely meta. It’s about the pearl of the borgias, mentioned
in T6T. Now let me connect the pearl of the borgias to the deal
between Mycroft and Moriarty.
First: Mary is the black pearl.
I belive Mary is the pearl. Let’s look at some rather interesting points:
The pearl was stolen in Georgia; the A.G.R.A. coup was in Georgia
The pearl is now in London (according to Interpol); Mary is now in London
The mentioning of Greta Bengtsdotter in T6T. It’s the story that Sherlock
tells the man with the faded tattoo: His wife is a spy and married him only to get near another man, she planned this for 4 years.
Greta is short for Magaretha wich means pearl.
Sherlock expected to find the pearl in the Thatcher-Statue; instead he found the memory stick with Marys Past on it.
In my opinion, it’s absolutly not unusual for bady guys to have nicknames (like Barry “the snake” or something), plus “The black pearl” would be some badass nickname :D
So let’s imagine that Mary is the black pearl.
In 2009 the coup of A.G.R.A. went wrong (though I belive that Mary is in fact the traitor and planned this, but that’s not important right now). She went to England after that, let’s say in 2009 or 2010. She fled from Georgia. The pearl went missing.
In this theory here, I explain why I think that Mycroft made a deal with Moriarty: Mycroft gives Jim something he really wants and for that, Jim should fake his death and stay away from Sherlock. So, what could be so interesting that Jim would do that?
Maybe the black pearl.
Mycroft himself tells Sherlock that Jim had a huge interest in the pearl in last year before his death. He “died” in 2011, so his interest in the pearl began around 2010. 2010 he also met Sherlock by the pool. Remember that he was in fact just about to kill Sherlock, but then he got a phone call that somehow managed to change his mind. Most of the fandom suspects that the person on the phone was Irene Adler, but I always thought that it had to be Mycroft.
Whoever it is, that person offers Jim something that seems very interesting, like something Jim wants reeeeaaally bad. It even made him change his mind. So what was it?
Maybe Mycroft called and said something like “I have the black pearl.” (like, look at that tweet from Gartiss - He really HAS the black pearl). Remember that later Mycroft acts like he wouldn’t know that Mary was a part of A.G.R.A. though that seems very unlikely? I’d think he would double check Marys backround when finding out that she is going to marry John, because with that she is close to Sherlock. And if he would have done that,he also would found out that Mary Morstan isn’t her real name, like his little brother found out before.
Mycroft indeed has Mary, or maybe just information about where to find “the black pearl”. But he has something.
So he gives the information he has to Jim in exchange for leaving Sherlock alone. That’s 2011. Shortly after that, Jim and Sherlock fake their deaths.
Mary is a double agent.
So now we have a problem: If Mycroft gave Jim the information about Mary, he wouldn’t let her marry John, would he? Because if he had information about the pearl and gave that to the nemesis of his little brother, he would kept an eye on Mary and the very moment when Mary first approached John, he would intervened. Right?
But that wouldn’t be the case, if Mary would work for Mycroft. In TAB we see her working for him, maybe that’s a clue. But if Mycroft said something like “I will give your Information to Moriarty and you will play along, reporting me everything he does.” When John falls in love with Mary, Mycroft is okay with that because he thinks Mary will protect John (who he knows is very important to Sherlock).
But Jim also has plans for Mary: He got her in exchange for his death. So he knew that he wouldn’t be able to interact with Sherlock for quite some time.
But he promised to “burn his heart out”, which is quite frankly a very weird way to tell somebody that you will destroy them. But if he sends Mary to John, who is an easy target in that time (broken, mourning the death of his best friend etc.) and get John to fall in love with Mary … Only to let her destroy him - that would be a nice little catch, don’t you think? Maybe he told her: “Go and get John Watson to fall in love with you. Get near him, get near Sherlock. When the time has come, we’ll burn them.”
Sherlock says that Greta Bengtdotter has that plan I’ve mentioned earlier about 4 years: 2016 - 4 = 2012. Supposedly the year Mary and John met.
Mary and John probably meet in 2011/2012. And what’s funny about this is, that when Mary and Sherlock meet in that reatsurant, she pretends to doesn’t recognize Sherlock, although she have to know his face (bear in mind that she first commented on Johns blog in 2013: on the same exact blog he writes stories about the cases and posts photos). She pretends to because she isn’t supposed to. The first time Sherlock really looks at her, amongst other things we see the words “Liar” and “Guardian“.
Liar because, obivously, she lies. Guardian, because she was a guardian for John in Mycrofts order.
So, Mary is the black pearl of the Borgias. Mary is a double agent. Mary was the reason Jim didn’t killed Sherlock. But whos side is she on?
Of course I don’t say I’m right. This is just one of the many many many theories I have in my mind :) But I really like this one, so I figured, I’d write it down to discuss it with others :) I would really love to hear your opinions, feel free to get in touch!
Tagging those I already tagged in the “Mycroft knows where Jim is” thing:
hey! sorry if im making this again but my dash is super dead so if you post about yuri!!! on ice (multifandom is cool as long as you tag stuff) please reblog this and i’ll check out your blog and most probably follow you :D
