Mensagem: 

I do have a point:

    I went to the site www.webcorp.org.uk\wcadvanced.html  typed "no one" and had some hundreds of hits, I picked some to exemplify.

    This, because I learned that "no one" comes with verb in third person.

     What I don´t know of with a degree of certainty is, if even in past tenses "no one" follows the standard, someone else can give further clarifying.

     What I can say is that "no one" in the above phrase may come with "seemed", but if "no one" is third person, he/she/it will morph into he/she/it to him/her/itself in the end.

     If we wanted "themselves" in the end, we began the sentence with 'everyone'; so I think.   To make a long history short, my sentence isn´t fault, though you spotted a find that I failed to see: that "no one" and "seemed" can come togheter in the sentence.

    Obviously, verbs (such as auxiliar CAN) and other few word accompaning this particle don´t follow this rule, but the majority of verbs do.

    Now compare some hits that I picked. (highlights are mine).

= = = = = = = = = = =
