The Secret Behind Vermouth's Youth! in General Posted February 21, 2011 · Report reply The Miyanos would have started research too late to have caused Vermouth's problem. Atsushi Miyano moved out of the house from the tape case (423-425) thirty years ago to go somewhere for his research. That's too young. Instead, I think something else stopped Vermouth's aging and the Org had the Miyanos research Vermouth to try to replicate what caused her to stop aging. Unfortunately this didn't produce a cure and frankly she has gotten tired of being forced to stand still in life and hide when everyone else moves on. (She's probably also tired of getting stabbed by two generations of Miyanos for samples.)But Vermouth said "if you(Sherry) want to blame, blame your parents who started this foolish research". She didn't say "your parents who took over this foolish research" but said "who started". So I think it's the Miyanos who did a research which resulted in Vermouth having sttoped aging. I guess her anger has something to do with her aging problem and that she has a hatred toward the Miyanos.You are correct in saying that it was only after Sharon switched did Jodie uncover that she was the one who killed her father. However, I think there was reason to think that Sharon was an FBI target before her death. Why was Jodie at Sharon's funeral in the first place after all? My thoughts are that very late into the twenty years, the FBI began to look into Sharon Vineyard as a member of the Org, but not knowing she was the person who killed Jodie's dad. Akai Shuuichi had infiltrated the Org five years ago and was rejected two years before the current timeline. The info that tipped the FBI off that Sharon was someone to be interested in may have come from him. Sharon noticed the FBI moving around her and switched. After this, Jodie heard Chris at the funeral say "A secret makes a woman, woman". She realized after the switch that Chris was the person who killed her father, but was too young, etc. So you agree to the idea that her switching has nothing to do with her crime 20 years ago? And I think the reason Jodie was at Sharon's funeral is because Sharon is such a big star and so Jodie might have got an interest to attend her funeral. If she had already noticed that the FBI was investigating her she shouldn't have had time to play two roles at the same time for the reason I discussed before. My point is that she could indeed escape from the FBI by the switching but that's not what she had intended. I am kind of confused about what you are trying to say here. I think you are saying Kir could have falsified her resume in order to get herself into showbiz, but I'm not sure what point you are trying to make about the BO.I am pretty sure that the BO could falsify a resume if they wanted. I am not saying Sharon just starred out of nowhere with no prior acting experience. What I am saying is the BO wanted her to become an actress, so she started an acting career, and because of her natural talent and the BO's power helping in the background, she got good positions and quickly worked her way up into a position where she could take lead roles. Remember, Vermouth is one of the most capable BO members out there. Soon after meeting Conan and Haibara, she found a target, Dr. Araide, to swap with close to them, staked him out, learned his habits and background, switched with him, and began doing his fulltime job. While she has a full time job running the clinic and being the Teitan nurse, at the same time she starts looking for the FBI who came after her. She steals and returns Kogoro's records to lure out the FBI and stakes them out to find where they live, how many there are, and how to contact them (42-9, 11). Then she goes online, tracks down a suitable target she can blackmail into committing a murder, gets all sort of background info on a random guy, all while executing her plan to capture Haibara, keeping abreast of the FBI's movements, and working a full time doctor's job. And most likely Vermouth did most of this work by herself. If she has the ability to work this hard to get Haibara, then she could have worked hard to be an actress. I'm sorry to have made you comfused. My direct question is How the BO specifically could help Sharon to make a debut? In Kir's case it was to falsify a resume and in Chris's case it was just to show her as a second generation actress. I mean usually people should have some entertaiment careers before they get a chance of screen debut.But as for a talent or skill needed to debut on screen, I think I was too realistic considering this point. You offered various cases which demonstrate Vermouth's competency and I thought Dr Araide's case has its sense. I came to realise that after all it is quite difficult to assert specifically that what is the possible and what is the impossible in a DC world. For example there is a problem that Ai and Conan could enter an elementary school when they don't have an extract of their family register. Now come to think of it that's just for convenience to the author and is showing that however weird it may look that kind of things could happen on DC. Or she could have been saying ironic things. Or maybe she was referring to her job when she was still in the Sharon's mother before her anti aging accident? But seeing the way Sharon was speaking, how the air change when Ran said "I have to thank God a lot", and the way Gosyo described the scene, I think she was not in an ironic mood. And though there is no evidence what the line(Shouldn't all honest hard working people be happy) refers to I think anyway Vermouth had been honest and working hard before she joined the BO. You could call this the project start date even though it may have been going on before and Vermouth may not know she was not aging yet. The reason is that if Vermouth was exposed to something that halts aging, someone around her responsible for getting her exposed is likely to be working on a project with the intent of lengthening lifespan or something like that. So the project had started when she drank in some medicine or before that. Then there's no time contradiction and no problem regarding the timeframe.The thing is Yukiko did not "assure her words" as you said. Yukiko said "You once told me you taught Chris disguising techniques because she begged for them." Sharon replies "I haven't seen her for almost ten years... All I know is she is hanging out with a bad crowd. Anyway lets go park the car and get to the dressing room already. Besides those patrons are starting to notice that there is no camera running...." Basically Sharon switched the subject so there was no chance for Yukiko to affirm the ten years thing.Let me point out I'm not disagreeing with the original point that Sharon worked on creating Chris over 10 years ago, only pointing out you can't rely on what Yukiko says because she heard it through Sharon. Well I meant since there is Yukiko, who could question on Sharon's words about her daughter She cannot tell a lie and I descrobed that "Her words can be assured by Yukiko". And since the script writer didn't fix the point through yukiko it can be said that the timing is also a fact.
