My very long confession/analysis of Jim pretty much similar to your’s except I decided to label him with a couple of psychiatric illnesses too.
What exactly is wrong with Mr Moriarty?
I’ve always thought of him as evil but for the first time I look at Mr Moriarty from a medical perspective.
Is he mentally ill?
And if so, what does he have and how did he become this way?
Reblog if you like it! Reasonable comments welcome.
Prove me wrong, ordinary Sherlock. Prove that you’re not like them. I want you to prove that you know the truth, thatwe are one and the same, in both life and in death. Prove that you’re not ordinary, convince me.
Because we’re not so different, you and I. Because we both get bored, we both spend all our lives searching and searching for distractions…only you’re boring. You prance around London, solving other people’s problems, and you know it could have been different, oh, it could have been very different…when you look at me, Sherlock, you don’t see a criminal or a monster. You see the man that you could have become. You see yourself.
Psychology of Sherlock Ships [2/6]
It is intriguing that a ship which involves a character who does not yet exist could be so popular, but when you consider that it’s the intrigue that makes the ship so appealing, it is less surprising. Mormor has many similarities to Johnlock… one man is a criminal mastermind whose sanity is more than questionable, and the other is a world class sniper, dishonorably discharged from the military. Both are cold blooded killers which gives the ship a thrilling dark edge to it. Add in the fact that Sebastian Moran is not yet a canon character, it is no surprise that this ship so popular, what with the large amount of speculation and headcanons. And, like Johnlock, it is clear that these two men need each other, despite their penchant for crime and lack of morality.
We were destined to play this game together, Sherlock. Let’s do this forever and ever and ever. Nothing can stop us, not even death. Because we’re not normal, we’re not ordinary. We are each other. Only I’m the man that you could have become.
