the east wind


Eurus Holmes, The East Wind

“Look how brilliant you are. Your mind has created the perfect metaphor. You’re high above us, all alone in the sky, and you understand everything except how to land. Now, I’m just an idiot. But I’m on the ground. I can bring you home.”

The East Wind

Okay I edited some details, added shadows and highlights before I submitted this to the SHERLOCKED Portrait Competition. Now all I can do is wait.

Thanks for watching, I’ve been inactive here for a while bc job.. but I also feel like there’s hardly any response these days on things that I post.
No matter if Art or Cosplay… although Artworks get a little more response… I’m not sure I’ll keep posting on Tumblr.
I’m very active on Instagram these days, so if you like to, follow me here.

  • Sherlock: I have a sister?
  • Sherlock: My brother knows that I have a sister?!

  • Sherlock: My sister worked with Moriarty?!?!
  • Sherlock: My sister killed my CHILDHOOD BESTFRIEND?!?!?
  • Sherlock: *looks at John* *grabs John protectively* MINE

I updated my original edit to this one! Kidlock time!
(I have two versions: one with Eurus as the Middle and this one, with Sherlock instead^^).

If you think EMP…

Then…The East Wind….Samarra….

Is this reality bleed-through, Mycroft sitting at Sherlock’s bedside, telling him childhood stories, begging Sherlock to change the story, to write his own ending… so that Samarra can be avoided????

It bugs me how Eurus is clearly used as a metaphor in S4 and I’m just meant to wait years until we find out the truth. It’s obvious isn’t it? During the Tarmac scene in HLV Sherlock tells John the unsettling story that Mycroft would tell Sherlock when he was a child. Considering that Mycroft would “be mother” during their childhood, it makes sense that he’d tell him stories to teach him lessons without Sherlock necessarily realizing that that’s what the stories are. Eurus is the name of the Greek goddess of the east wind. In s4 Eurus played as a god. She laid destruction upon anyone who crossed her path. She had the power to manipulate one’s mind and force them to do things her way by mind control. Eurus was Sherlock’s memory of Mycroft’s story. She laid her waste and then she plucked those who she felt as unworthy from the Earth. The east wind was in full effect. Remember now: “The east wind was a terrifying force that seeks the unworthy and plucks them from the Earth. That was generally me.” But Sherlock was able to beat the East wind in the end, for all Eurus wanted was to be shown compassion and love. Love wins in the end. But the story has really only just begun.

So, anytime there's been a red target on someone (TBB end, TGG pool scene, etc.) in the show, could we assume it may be AGRA working for Moriarty? Maybe what went wrong with the last AGRA mission is that Mary went rouge after Moriarty's death and decided to go after Sherlock through John (something Moriarty anticipated before the TRF). Maybe Mary is the East Wind who's finishing Moriarty's mission to burn the heart out of Sherlock.

Hi Nonny!

Oh, absolutely a good assumption. It’s a long held belief of mine that Mary has been involved as far back as TBB at the very least and was one of the snipers in TGG. I think there was even a meta going around that there were I THINK 4 sniper dots in TGG’s pool scene, so people thought it could have been AGRA. Given that I also belief Mycroft is in some way associated with Moriarty and it was “confirmed” that AGRA worked for Mycroft’s people, the possibility is high that Moriarty hired them to do his dirty work.

I still also believe that AGRA is only one person, possibly two people (Ajay and Mary), but should AGRA actually be 4 people, this is a good theory. I believe Mary has and always was in the whole thing for herself. I do believe she went rogue and I do believe that she sees John as hers and just wants Sherlock GONE but he just won’t go away. I’ve mentioned before that I do not for one second believe that Eurus even exists but is simply a stolen face used for the false narrative of S4 / TFP, and I do think Mary’s death was either faked or falsely told, ergo I think Mary is actually still trying to rid herself of Sherlock and instead killed John (”if I can’t have him no one can!” dealy)

Anyway. Mary’s a villain, and you will convince me otherwise; everything is so off about S4. And I do think it was her mission to “burn out Sherlock’s heart”, and in the end, knew that to do that was to distance John from him, and just said “fuck it” and killed John instead.

Oh, and I just remembered, Mycroft chanting in Sherlock’s head as he’s dying: “The east wind is coming, coming to get you!”. 

After he’s shot. By Mary. Sherlock believes that Mary is the East Wind, so yeah, this is all textual level stuff.

“Remember her Christmas present?”

“It’s obvious when this all started. She was never the same after that Christmas. It was as if you woke her up.”

From S04E03 The Final Problem. 

Why is Eurus always drowning children?

anonymous asked:

Hey, Jenna! Hope you are doing well :) I don't know if the biblical associations to the secret episode are still relevant, but today I found out that it was the east wind that destroyed the crops and brought the swarm of locusts to Egypt in the old testament...might be nothing, but considering the biblical (possible) coincidences to Sherlock recently...I found it interesting that there too, the east wind was a destructive force

Hey! I’m good thanks, hope you are too <3


Yeah, definitely “a terrifying voice that laid waste to all in its path.” And especially considering:

Eurus is fake: MARY is the true EAST WIND

Mary is the Devil. 

In the canon, the east wind alludes to the devastation to come from WW1- I think that’s interesting considering Mary mistakes the ‘Amo’ love code as ‘ammunition’- she connects it to war.
