Mary is the pearl of the Borgias and a the topic of the deal between Mycroft and Moriarty
First things first: Sorry that this will be soooooo long, I’ll really try to keep it short but I don’t think it will work out :) Secondly: I’m super sorry about my english - I will try to correct it when I find time, but that might take a while. I hope it’s understandable :)
I wrote something about Mycroft
knowing where Moriarty (or his body) is and in that I mentioned why
Mycroft and Jim could made a deal (see here).
This first occurred to me after I’ve
read this lovely meta. It’s about the pearl of the borgias, mentioned
in T6T. Now let me connect the pearl of the borgias to the deal
between Mycroft and Moriarty.
First: Mary is the black pearl.
I belive Mary is the pearl. Let’s look at some rather interesting points:
The pearl was stolen in Georgia; the A.G.R.A. coup was in Georgia
The pearl is now in London (according to Interpol); Mary is now in London
The mentioning of Greta Bengtsdotter in T6T. It’s the story that Sherlock
tells the man with the faded tattoo: His wife is a spy and married him only to get near another man, she planned this for 4 years.
Greta is short for Magaretha wich means pearl.
Sherlock expected to find the pearl in the Thatcher-Statue; instead he found the memory stick with Marys Past on it.
In my opinion, it’s absolutly not unusual for bady guys to have nicknames (like Barry “the snake” or something), plus “The black pearl” would be some badass nickname :D
So let’s imagine that Mary is the black pearl.
In 2009 the coup of A.G.R.A. went wrong (though I belive that Mary is in fact the traitor and planned this, but that’s not important right now). She went to England after that, let’s say in 2009 or 2010. She fled from Georgia. The pearl went missing.
In this theory here, I explain why I think that Mycroft made a deal with Moriarty: Mycroft gives Jim something he really wants and for that, Jim should fake his death and stay away from Sherlock. So, what could be so interesting that Jim would do that?
Maybe the black pearl.
Mycroft himself tells Sherlock that Jim had a huge interest in the pearl in last year before his death. He “died” in 2011, so his interest in the pearl began around 2010. 2010 he also met Sherlock by the pool. Remember that he was in fact just about to kill Sherlock, but then he got a phone call that somehow managed to change his mind. Most of the fandom suspects that the person on the phone was Irene Adler, but I always thought that it had to be Mycroft.
Whoever it is, that person offers Jim something that seems very interesting, like something Jim wants reeeeaaally bad. It even made him change his mind. So what was it?
Maybe Mycroft called and said something like “I have the black pearl.” (like, look at that tweet from Gartiss - He really HAS the black pearl). Remember that later Mycroft acts like he wouldn’t know that Mary was a part of A.G.R.A. though that seems very unlikely? I’d think he would double check Marys backround when finding out that she is going to marry John, because with that she is close to Sherlock. And if he would have done that,he also would found out that Mary Morstan isn’t her real name, like his little brother found out before.
Mycroft indeed has Mary, or maybe just information about where to find “the black pearl”. But he has something.
So he gives the information he has to Jim in exchange for leaving Sherlock alone. That’s 2011. Shortly after that, Jim and Sherlock fake their deaths.
Mary is a double agent.
So now we have a problem: If Mycroft gave Jim the information about Mary, he wouldn’t let her marry John, would he? Because if he had information about the pearl and gave that to the nemesis of his little brother, he would kept an eye on Mary and the very moment when Mary first approached John, he would intervened. Right?
But that wouldn’t be the case, if Mary would work for Mycroft. In TAB we see her working for him, maybe that’s a clue. But if Mycroft said something like “I will give your Information to Moriarty and you will play along, reporting me everything he does.” When John falls in love with Mary, Mycroft is okay with that because he thinks Mary will protect John (who he knows is very important to Sherlock).
But Jim also has plans for Mary: He got her in exchange for his death. So he knew that he wouldn’t be able to interact with Sherlock for quite some time.
But he promised to “burn his heart out”, which is quite frankly a very weird way to tell somebody that you will destroy them. But if he sends Mary to John, who is an easy target in that time (broken, mourning the death of his best friend etc.) and get John to fall in love with Mary … Only to let her destroy him - that would be a nice little catch, don’t you think? Maybe he told her: “Go and get John Watson to fall in love with you. Get near him, get near Sherlock. When the time has come, we’ll burn them.”
Sherlock says that Greta Bengtdotter has that plan I’ve mentioned earlier about 4 years: 2016 - 4 = 2012. Supposedly the year Mary and John met.
Mary and John probably meet in 2011/2012. And what’s funny about this is, that when Mary and Sherlock meet in that reatsurant, she pretends to doesn’t recognize Sherlock, although she have to know his face (bear in mind that she first commented on Johns blog in 2013: on the same exact blog he writes stories about the cases and posts photos). She pretends to because she isn’t supposed to. The first time Sherlock really looks at her, amongst other things we see the words “Liar” and “Guardian“.
Liar because, obivously, she lies. Guardian, because she was a guardian for John in Mycrofts order.
So, Mary is the black pearl of the Borgias. Mary is a double agent. Mary was the reason Jim didn’t killed Sherlock. But whos side is she on?
Of course I don’t say I’m right. This is just one of the many many many theories I have in my mind :) But I really like this one, so I figured, I’d write it down to discuss it with others :) I would really love to hear your opinions, feel free to get in touch!
Tagging those I already tagged in the “Mycroft knows where Jim is” thing:
Sorry to spam your dash, but I read them both last night, and let me tell you, this is where the shit hits the fan. Buckle in.
Chapter 2 - Relationship with Your Parents
Jill talks about a friend who’s parents got divorced, and the struggle her friend had. Fair enough, divorce can be hard on kids, but if the parents are truly unhappy together, is allowing them to separate really the worst thing ever? It’s better in the long run, but as we all know, marriage is forever, to someone that you met yesterday, usually some guy that your dad knows.
Boundaries: parents who are lenient and considerate of their children, are terrible and will bring up terrible kids. Watch out.
Now here’s where it gets very… fundie.
If your dad lets you go out with boys that you choose, then you are worthless to him. He doesn’t care. Sorry bitch.
I would like to address this wild pile of bullshit. Imagine if your dad trusted your judgment?? My dad is quite a protective, and this is fine. However, he’s not telling who I can and can’t go out with, he knows I’m a sensible person, and let’s me make my own choices. Honestly, if I was not even allowed to make that judgement, I’d feel disrespected.
Here’s a quote to get you fired up: “A girl watches what her father takes care of: his sports car, his custom-made gold clubs, his investments. It’s unlikely that a dad would entrust his prized convertible to a teenage boy he didn’t really know and just let the kid take it out for a spin without supervision”. p25-26
Where do I even begin?? YOU. ARE NOT. YOUR. FATHERS. PROPERTY.
You don’t belong to your dad, you are a person capable of making judgements and having opinions, and I find it kind of upsetting that girls are just happy to accept that they are nothing more than a nice sports car.
Apparently Michelle and Jim Bob have a 24 hour open door policy, which I find difficult to believe, considering they have managed to make 19 kids. There’s got to be locks on the door with 19 kids running around…
During heart-to-heart talks, there is basically a questionnaire for the kids to fill out. When you are running your family in a way that is comparable to a supermarket feedback form.… like… come on guys….
Are you ready for the obedience game? No, no one is, because it is fucked up.
Whenever Jim Bob or Michelle ask a kid to do something, they have to say “Yes sir/ma’am, I’d be happy to do so!” - a lovely bit of brainwashing there, well done guys. You will not be surprised to find out the Duggars invented this game.
And guess what! It gets worse - there are four points of obedience! 1) instant - do that shit now 2) cheerful - and you better look fucking pleased about it 3) thorough - no shortcuts, we need you to be distracted for long enough so we can be blessed with another child *wink* 4) unconditional - don’t try and get out of it, because YOU CAN’T!!!
Now, get ready!!! Because the girls have pulled their favourite life principles from a list from the Institute of Basic Life Principles. I am pretty sure this is the closest fundies get to high school cheerleading. GOOOO GOTHARD!!! *shakes pom poms but in a modest way*
If you don’t know about Bill Gothard’s cult, then it seems like quite a nice list. But for those in the know… you know you know
Then we are reminded that parents struggle too. Probably because they have 19 kids… idk maybe that’s just me
The chapter is summed up with a story about two guys who had road rage. One died and the other one went to prison. That’s what anger can do, so watch ya self.
Sorry this was quite long!!!! Lots to despair about.
I’m a bit sorry for spamming your dash today and in the past few days (especially with TG posts) but THE! LATEST! CHAPTER! 121!
I’m in TG fandom since 2014 but I’ve never actually seen such a big fandom resonance after a chapter :D (Maybe this once happened in the ending of the original manga? But we were all devastated after Ken’s death that time)
I’m a bit too happy about Akira and Amon finally getting together (seriously, I couldn’t sleep properly since August, when they first met during Rushima arc) but my heart is still unstable and it is SERIOUSLY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT MY FREAKING OTP SINCE 2014 IS NOW REAL AAAAAAAAAAA *runs in circles*
I’m also happy that Ishida gave my precious favorite girl Akira so much attention (all these beautiful manga pages! her new hairstyle!) and such an important place in the plot of :re. So blessed.
But still, my Seidou and SeiAki feels are so confusing atm! I can’t concentrate fully on Akiramon because of these feels :c
And also Touken, Now we have some nice and sly Touken small talk (finally, lol!). I’ve never seen so many one phrase jokes in my entire life :DDDDD
I guess we will face more pain from now on, but let’s just all be happy for now.
