Doc Holliday is a class-A pain in the ass… but he’s also one of the most loyal and solid and fearless man I’ve ever met. Yeah, he can be a polecat sometimes, but he’s a changed man. He’s redeemed himself many times over. And I’m proud to call this man my brother.
“There came a time near dawn on the eve of spring, and Lúthien danced upon a green hill; and suddenly she began to sing. Keen, heart-piercing was her song as the song of the lark that rises from the gates of night and pours its voice among the dying stars, seeing the sun behind the walls of the world; and the song of Lúthien released the bonds of winter, and the frozen waters spoke, and flowers
sprang from the cold earth where her feet had passed.“ ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion
TFSN’s Spacetime Challenge //What Happened to Jemma?
After the Season 2 finale, the fandom had a lot of crazy theories on what the Monolith might have done with (or to!) Jemma. I heard everything from space (aka what actually happened) to Jemma getting Inhuman powers to even dead (hell no!). But my favorite semi off-the-wall theory, was that it transported her back in time. Because yes, I am a sucker for Time Travel AUs.
In the blink of an eye, the monolith swept Jemma away and when she came to, she found herself in post-WW2 New York City. All alone, with no resources, no way to get back home and no S.H.I.E.L.D., she makes her way to the only place she can think of that might be able help her in 1947– the Strategic Scientific Reserve.
Once at the SSR, she comes face to face with her idol, Peggy Carter. Peggy is intially suspcious of Jemma (and her story), but eventually realizes that she’s telling the truth and decides to help her. So armed with antiquated science equipment, ingenuity and a stubborn determination to get home to Fitz, Jemma sets out to build a time machine (nbd). After months of hard work and dozens of failed hypotheses, she finally figured it out and built a working portal– with help from Peggy and Howard Stark (Fitz was going to be so jealous!).
Saying goodbye to her new friends was harder than she anticipated. Growing up, Peggy Carter had been larger than life– but meeting her, becoming frends with her, showed her that even her heroes were human. Leaping through the portal with one last backwards glance, Jemma couldn’t wait to get back home, back to the right time, back to Fitz.
Not that this would have happened in a million years, but a girl can dream, right? That’s what headcanons are for afterall :)
