[[WMG: Mary is working for Mycroft in modern day]]
There's no way Mycroft didn't know who she was before Sherlock did. Word of God said Mary used to be one of Moriarty's assassins. Somehow, she left his organization, created a new identity, and avoided his detection for about three years? She's good, but not that good--she would have needed help. And who could better create an identity and make it believable and legal than Mycroft, in exchange for Mary simply keeping an eye on a doctor? Naturally, Mycroft didn't expect her to fall in love with John, but that worked out because it meant she was even closer to him. He even told Sherlock at the beginning of series three that he'd been keeping an eye on John. And that would also explain why Mycroft didn't want Sherlock getting involved with Magnussen. Mycroft wouldn't put so many important people in danger that way, so why leave Magnussen alone? Answer: he had already arranged for Mary to make the hit and he knew that Sherlock would just get in the way. Sherlock has subconsciously figured this out; it's all there in his dream.

[[WMG: Sebastian Moran will be revealed to be the TheManBehindTheMan.]]

Moriarty's appearance was just a simple distraction for what's to come. Jim is truly dead, but his suicide was just his way of making his right hand man take up his sword. And that man is Sebastian Moran, formerly a decorated Colonel in the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers, a legendary assassin as well as a professional hunter, and a wartime buddy of John Watson.

Sherlock spent two years destroying Moriarty's regiment, but small pockets still remain worldwide, constantly recruiting and ready to rise at any time. Once Moriarty's sudden 'return' has shocked the country, Moran will assemble the new syndicate and send a wave of crime across the UK.

Moran, sometime along the line in his post-war job, attempted to snipe Mary when she got too close to finding out about Moriarty's identity. He wants to finish the job, but still thinks of John as a good friend, and has to keep Sherlock from finding out about his true role at all costs. So he chooses his ''own'' right hand man to appear to lead Moriarty's syndicate-John Clay, the famous bank robber, master forger, hitman and a supporter of the Waters Crime Family.

Clay, quietly getting a job as a clerk at a London post office, will secretly direct Moran's army of professional bank robbers-the Red Headed League-using the resources available to him. Made up of heavily armed former soldiers, mercenaries or hired guns and donning red balaclavas, they will carry out a series of violent bank robberies throughout England and leaving an increasingly high body count with each heist.

While Scotland Yard gets increasingly panicky about the League, Moran, with everything carefully planned, comes back into John's life. To get closer to John's loved ones, Moran will be the perfect friend of John's-a man openly tolerant of Sherlock's rudeness, standing up against Donovan's jabs and a valuable asset when the duo are in the countryside. And best of all, Mary never saw his face during his attempt on her life, so she won't recognise him. Moran will stand up for Sherlock and John and is present when Mary gives birth to her daughter. Of course, his kindness to John is genuine, but the rest is simply an act.

Soon, though, with the help of the military and Sherlock, the Red-Headed League will be brought down and John Clay is thrown into prison. The syndicate seemingly shuts down all other activities, but now focuses on one goal-kill Sherlock Holmes and Mary Watson, for once and for all. Sherlock will feel that something is off, but casts the thought of Moran being suspicious aside.

Eventually, after a tangled web of clues and seemingly solving the last mystery, Sherlock and John will return to 221B, only to be knocked out. John will wake up to find himself a prisoner in his own house, with the doors locked, Mary and Sherlock brutally beaten up, John's daughter wailing in fear, and Moran with a gun, ready to open fire. Moran will explain everything, mock a horrified Sherlock and Mary for being so trusting and prepare to kill them both slowly, leaving John and his daughter alive to watch.

From there, two things will happen. The first is that John goes into rage mode and fistfights Moran into a standstill, before finally throwing him into the hands of Scotland Yard, who will hand him over to Mycroft. The second is that John, remembering all the good times he had with Sebastian in war and in the previous season, begs Moran to show mercy. Shocked and actually moved, Moran will drop the gun, release Sherlock and Mary into a hospital and hand himself over to the police.

his missions made for rather exciting case files, Mycroft and Anthea decided that Bond would make a useful propaganda tool. So Bond's case files were converted into a series of spy novels, but draw from the plots of the films to make them seem less believable, introducing new characters and changing the villain's schemes. The name of a [[Creator/IanFleming deceased Naval Intelligence operative]] was used as an author, and an actor was hired to portray him in public.

Actors like Creator/TimothyDalton and Creator/PierceBrosnan were also hired to pose for the covers. The character in the books was also more of a suave, womanising superspy than his ruthless, grim inspiration. The result was that the books became instant hits with the public, but were outlandish enough to reassure them that Bond was fictional.

[[WMG: The Sherlock Holmes books ''do'' exist in universe...]]
It's just that John decided to write them after Sherlock's suicide as a way of coping with his friend's death. However, as the public was very much against Sherlock at the moment (apart from a dedicated minority), John decided that lifting the stories directly from his blog and adapting them into story form would result in the media mocking him. Eventually, after a trip to the museum and library here and there, he made the decision to set the stories in Victorian times. He also kept Sherlock's name, but cut out some of the more unpleasant parts of his personality, so people would sympathise with him better and root for him constantly.

As well as that, John watered down some cases (such as changing Irene's motives in "A Scandal In Belgravia") and made entirely new ones up by combining elements from his blog (eg. basing "The Five Orange Pips" and "The Bruce-Partington Plans" off The Great Game), along with making new titles for them. He also omitted characters, made brand new or composite ones and made them more sympathetic. Finally, he made up a fake backstory for his pen name, along with an old family photograph of a Victorian Doctor he changed and edited to persuade people that "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle" was real. The results were ''Literature/AStudyInScarlet'', ''Literature/TheSignOfTheFour'', ''The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes'', ''The Memoirs Of Sherlock Holmes'' and ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles'', which were all smash hits with the public and sold out several times, especially ''Adventures'' and ''Hound.'' The public even sent John several hundred pounds of hate mail for killing off Sherlock in ''The Final Problem.''

Throughout the years when Sherlock was on his hiatus, some people discovered similarities between Sherlock's cases and the books, but people called them crazy and accepted that Sherlock Holmes was a fictional character very much unlike the deceased fraud, who had read the books constantly and therefore decided to be the real life version of the fictional sleuth.
