Sherlock BBC: Anthea by dauntingfire Sherlock BBC: Anthea by dauntingfire
I adore Anthea and I desperately wish she appeared more than a few times in the show.

Secretly I ship her and John SO HARD. No, like, Sherlock/John (or Sherlock+John) forever but John DOES marry a girl named MARY in ACD canon...

SO, part of me hopes desperately that Anthea's real name is Mary. John totally deserves a hot sassy ass-kicking chick in his life and one that doesn't mind his running off with Sherlock.

Also, I can see them both sitting out at dinner when their phones go off with text mssgs.

John: *getting up* "...You don't mind if I-"

Mary!Anthea: "Not at all." *already texting*

IT WOULD BE AMAZING OKAY.

STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT. :'(

(C) M & G and ACD

THAT'S AN INCREDIBLE CANNON IDEA!!! I'm in love with you a little bit. Anthea being Mary. You bloody little genius! O-O auto correct tried to change Anthea to anthrax.

Lol, now that you have said it... I want to see them date too! I can just imagine them in bed on a Saturday morning, with Anthea texting while John is cuddling her, and then a text from Sherlock comes in... So domestic. And Anthea can threaten to delete Mycroft's dessert break (I am almost sure he has one) from his schedule if he is mean to John.

Although Johnlock is my OTP, I wouldn't be too disappointed if he married Anthea actually... Now I want her real name to be Mary, too! But... most of all I want John and Sher too keep living together... But if now he HAS to move on... All three should live together. And drive John crazy with their their texting. "We're out of milk - SH" "Did you take the trash out? -A" John: I'm right HERE!

And also, nice picture by the way.

EXACTLY what I'm hoping for for Mary. The idea of John marrying and moving out from Baker Street breaks my heart but it would be so much better if his wife was a secret BAMF just like him. If she were Anthea, who is closely related to this whole thing and the main characters already, it would be even better.

Did you read my mind? I watched Sherlock for the first time like a month ago and since then I'm proudly obssesed :D Since I liked Anthea with John so much, and I knew Anthea was not her real name, I thought: why can't her name be Mary...? You just made my day, by saying the same xDD

Lovely, lovely draw, you captured her perfectly.

John - "Hey... um, do you ever get any free time?"
Anthea - "Oh, yeah. Lots.
... Bye. ..." - I laughed so hard I cried!

A huge hug to you for drawing this little slice of awesome and using it to plant your squee-worthy supposition in my brain! :hug:

So I don't usually do the whole comment thing, I just browse, but I much say: This is amazing. And I secretly ship them too.

Her face though, the skeptical look? Perfect. Totally Anthea.

I also like your other stuff, just so you know.

This actually really works in my head because I think they have a sort of....secret understanding of each other, since they both have to deal with the insanity that is the Holmes brothers....

And indeed John does marry Mary, which causes Sherlock to go kinda...well....off the deep end. He threw such a hissy fit. It was kind of adorable.

Actually, speaking of ACD canon....................am I the only one who REALLY wants Irene Adler to show up? I know she's a total cockblock for the Sherlock/John but I still reallly, really like her! She kicks ass, and I would LOVE to see Sherlock a bit flustered for once, since Irene really gets to him.
They don't actually end up together because she ends up in jail, but it's definitely an interesting run.

(by the way, am I the only one who notices that Sherlock and the Doctor have somewhat similar failings in their love lives? The man that Sherlock loves gets married and the woman he loves is in jail, while the man the Doctor loves wants to kill everyone {yes, I'm referring to the Master} and the woman he loves got stuck in a different dimension..............hmmmm...)
