Character's Name:
Marigold Rounds

Age:
16

Occupation:
Unemployed/ amateur photographer and storyteller

Brief Physical Description:
As the daughter of a well to do family living in the English countryside, Marigold is the perfect image of a porcelain doll. Her youthful appearance is enhanced by her sweet blue eyes, golden brown curls, and a creamy complexion with small freckles smattering her nose from time spent playing outside. Though she may be lively in manner, her expression is at times hard to read...

Brief Personality Description:
Filled with a boundless imagination and an inquisitive nature, she loves nothing more than creating fanciful worlds and playing with her beloved cousin Poppy by the stream. Sometimes her imagination gets the best of her in the form of telling small lies and playing tricks on others. Especially gifted with talents in the arts, Marigold has developed an interest in the burgeoning world of photography.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
Marigold is at the center of a paranormal controversy that is sweeping London’s newspapers and is a key person of interest in a case that develops as Ryuunosuke and Susato visit the English country side with Holmes.

Brief Background:
Spoiler:
Growing up in the English country side, Marigold Rounds was free to explore and play on her family's grounds with her older cousin Poppy Fields. Their time by the stream that ran past the house was spent creating fairy tales and adventurous stories, each one more fantastical than the last. One day, Marigold brought along her father's camera and the girls took pictures of what they came across. While telling stories, they began to play around with the camera, using illustrations of fairies and camera tricks Marigold had learned from her father, to create lifelike photographs of fairies dancing around them.

Once the pictures were developed, Marigold showed her father, telling him that the fairies were real. At first he didn't believe them but once the girls returned with more photographs, he sent them to a photographer friend in London for an expert opinion. The photographs created an uproar in the city and soon the two girls were entrenched in the midst of a debate of the validity of the story and the possibility of fairies. Poppy, overwhelmed by the attention, wanted to reveal that they were fake while Marigold saw opportunity. She convinced her cousin to not say a word, that they could write their stories and become famous. Experts, disbelievers, and curious minded people soon came to visit them in droves. One of whom, named Mister Aster, came to see the girls not the fairies, but for Poppy, because he had fallen in love with her picture and wanted to met her in person. Poppy quickly reciprocated his feelings and Marigold realized that her world was slowly unraveling because of all of her lies. She was soon to lose her only and best friend as well as being jealous of Poppy moving on with her life and growing up.

Slowly, Marigold started slipping morphine into Poppy's drinks, making her drowsy and hallucinate thus unable to visit Aster. Still Poppy pushed on and Marigold resorted to sending Aster a rejection letter from Poppy which resulted in an argument between Aster and Poppy's father in front of the entire household. Breaking down, Poppy tells Marigold that they have to come clean about all of their lies, that it's caused enough heartache. Marigold agrees but on the condition that they go to the stream one last time and take the last photographs. Once there, Marigold overdoses her cousin on morphine and runs home in tears, blaming her death on the fairies.

It's around this time that Sherlock arrives, with Iris, Ryuunosuke, and Susato in tow, to investigate the fairy photographs. The death of Poppy leads to them investigating the case, with Aster as the main person of interest. Marigold continues blaming the fairies, as well as insinuating Aster played a part. The team finds torn up photographs of Poppy and Aster and a hidden photograph taken the day of the crime that leads to incriminating Marigold. She breaks down in court and tells the truth, after a rounds of constant and ever changing lies.


Misc Facts:
While it's a couple of years off, this case takes elements from the historic controversy of The Cottingley Fairies photographs that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was involved in. As a spiritualist, Doyle was fascinated with other worldly phenomenons and was convinced the photographs of the fairies were proof and published several articles on the subject. Since I’m trying to steer clear of all spoilers, my headcanon for Sherlock would be that he, at the very least, would be interested in investigating if the pictures were legitmate.

Name Origin:
Full name is a play on Merry Go Round for Marigold's youthful appearance and her stories spinning round and a round. Also using the Victorian language of Flowers, Marigold means grief and jealousy (other character names: Poppy=imagination but also eternal sleep/oblivion and Aster=Elegance and a symbol of love)

To make matters worse, she technically murdered Poppy with poppies since that's what morphine is made from!

Thanks so much for your kind comment! <3
