(I hope this hasn't already been asked - I'm having trouble keeping track!) All You Have Is Your Fire with Finn/Poe(/Rey if you like!)

(It has not! And obviously I am going to add Rey in here.)

In this city, corporations like to use people with powers as their own private security forces, and the people with powers don’t always get a say in it, because they’re taken out of foster care or bad situations and made to feel indebted. Finn has spent most of his young adult life in one of those corporations, training to use his empath abilities to tell whether someone is lying to his bosses in meetings.

He has two soulmarks, which is unusual–they try to recruit people with negative marks, or none at all. It makes it easier to keep them loyal. One of them says Let me go and the other one says Why are you helping me?

Finn half-expects never to meet them until a man comes in for a meeting at First Order Inc. and Finn can tell that he’s planning some kind of corporate espionage, and Ren, who has some mental powers along with his terrifying array of them, can sense that Finn is sensing something and that means Something Bad is going to happen to Poe. Poe’s put in a waiting room while they “discuss his proposal” and Finn is sent to keep an eye on him but instead he says “Follow me if you want to live” and Poe’s eyes widen before he follows him.

“Why are you helping me?” he asks, one floor down, and it’s like the world falls out from underneath Finn.

They escape, but they lose each other and Finn is sure that Poe got taken, so he’s stumbling around the city, no idea how to live on his own, when he finds a girl with the strongest superpowers anyone in the city has seen since the last Jedi Knight left the city behind. She’s got a drone with some AI equipped with her, and it accuses him of being a thief, since he has Poe’s coat, but she doesn’t actually speak to him till he grabs her hand, hearing the sound of people out searching for him, and she says “Let me go!”

It’s only later that she realizes the first thing he said to her was “Please, I don’t want any trouble.”

She wonders if he has another mark too.

On why Sherlock is ok with Mary shooting him.

First of all, I’ve never written any kind of meta in my life.

Second, I don’t have a Degree in Psychology but my mother is a Psychiatrist and I checked this with her, aside of doing my own research. This topic is one we talk in daily basis but it suddenly made sense when His Last Vow came out. Though she doesn’t have anything to do with this. I’m the one relating it to BBC Sherlock.

Also, this is information that might be useful for any of you, so you might as well give it a read.

Contrary to popular belief, the syndrome I’ll be talking about, is not exclusive for hostage scenarios.

So now that we set that, why Sherlock forgave Mary?

As you might know, or not, the Stockholm syndrome, is a psychological phenomenon in which a victim express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their attacker. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. It’s a common survival mechanism.

“And yet over a distance of 6 feet you could have easily given me a kill shot. Enough to hospitalize me; not enough to kill me. That wasn’t a miss, that was surgery.”

“She phoned the ambulance”

Sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with them.

Sherlock identifies with Mary when John asks Is everyone I ever met a psychopath? Sherlock says yes, to what he believes is identifying with Mary, even if we know that’s not true. Sherlock Holmes won’t even be a high functioning socio-path, less a psychopath.

Now, this part I always find unfair for John when Sherlock and Mary say this is what John likes. As if being an adrenaline junkie, suddenly meant all the bullshit that happens to him, it happens because he wanted it. “Why is she like that?” “Because you chose her.” That’s another way of justifying her behaviour.

It occurs in the most psychologically traumatic situations, and its effects usually do not end when the crisis ends. In the most classic cases, victims continue to defend and care about their captors. Both, victim and the author of the crime, want to come out unharmed of this situation, and because of this, they cooperate.

“Why didn’t you come to me in the first place?”

“Because John can never know that I lie to him. It would break him and I would loose him forever, and Sherlock, I would never let that happen.”

After the shooting, Sherlock tries to make sense of this and deduces that Mary has a problem she needs to fix, a case. Mary cooperates and tells them the story — the one we never hear about.

Victims in their wish for preserve their lives, try to fulfil to the attacker’s wish. Which in this case, it’s John staying with Mary. Sherlock practically forces John to forgive her and stay, shoving these explanations down his throat.

And it’s ironic. Sherlock, being such an analytical man and being victim of his own head at the end of the day.

And I think it’s incredibly accurate, considering how S3 is about Sherlock loosing control and being betrayed by his emotions. Showing how much of an human he is. Though I know it’s just a show, and I might be having too much faith on it. If S4 comes out and they are ignoring the fact that Mary literally killed Sherlock, then I won’t care. This explanation will keep being true to me.

Because that’s what we do, we have to find explanations when someone we love hurts us in unexplainable ways. We want to believe in them. And Sherlock is no different.

Human error.

People really need to realise that characters of any sort are invented by their authors - if something is not stated to be true or is outright denied by the author, it is not a part of that character. It doesn't exist. If a character's sexuality isn't already made clear, they simply don't have one until the author gives them one. Literary constructs, people. Harry Potter's mum wasn't a fucking bisexual and "headcanon" is fucking stupid (I sure hope this hasn't already been said by someone else)
