’I have always encouraged you to be fearless, to live your life in the name of love and do what makes you happy… As scary as it is to take the leap, I am excited and full of joy because I know that no matter what happens, I’m following my heart.’ [x]
Gonna list all the important things I can remember:
If they were to bring Irene Adler back properly, they would need the storyline to be something incredible and worthy of her.
They’re aware that they, as people, can do so much more to improve representation, but they can’t just throw it all in randomly!
They believe it’s not true that all they do is have men talk down to women and murder women in Sherlock - case in point is Mrs Hudson. Moffat said “Mrs Hudson is alive and well… Mycroft tried to talk down to her and he got a big telling off!” Also Irene, for obvious reasons.
A follow up to that is they said if you don’t like being talked down to and don’t like murder, then don’t watch Sherlock. Because it’s about a patronising man that solves murders. Everyone applauded that.
Mark loves The Red-Headed League and has always wanted to modernise the story. It’s one of his favourites. Moffat isn’t sure why.
Someone in the audience asked them if they knew that Sherlock and John’s nicknames on Chinese web forums were “Curly woo” and “Peanut” and what would Mycroft’s be?
Mark said “I don’t know Chinese.”
The girl replied with “well it’s a good thing that ‘peanut’ is an English word” and the entire room DIED.
Eventually Mark settled on Mycroft being nicknamed “Slush Puppy” for those forums.
Mark didn’t write Mycroft for himself to play. He had some failed audition (he was softly spoken and hard to hear, so I didn’t quite catch the beginning of that story), but Steve Thompson told him that the voice he used for that part would be great for Mycroft. So here we are.
In terms of future episodes, they would love to do a series 5, but scheduling for it is super hard because of how busy Benedict and Martin are, but it’s not off the table, it seems!
Mark’s favourite episode to write with Steven was The Final Problem.
When asked why they didn’t bring back Irene Adler as a love interest for Sherlock, they gently reminded the girl in the audience that Sherlock was never a love story and never will be, but Sherlock texting a woman is a Big Deal anyway.
They told us it was Tom Baker’s birthday today.
I didn’t get to ask my question in front of everyone, but when I met Mark afterwards I asked him then. Read about that here.
Mark Gatiss is softly spoken and Steven Moffat is a loveable grandad and you can’t tell me otherwise
to the young lesbians out there who are closeted or have never been in a relationship with a girl before:
you don’t have to prove anything to anyone, especially yourself. please please don’t think you have to date or kiss or love any girl who shows interest in you. it’s tough to be a teenage lesbian and wonder whether you are valid or whether any girl would ever even like you, and it’s frustrating to always like girls who don’t like you back, but i want you to know that you aren’t obligated to force yourself into a relationship or situation you aren’t sure you want just because you’re afraid you’ll never be happy. if you don’t like her, you aren’t any less of a lesbian or worth any less as a person for turning her down. do what you’re comfortable with, and the rest will follow; i promise you are still valid and worthy of love.
Truly, tho, @followers like… if you… can find it… in your heart… to look at a nazi… and say to me… “don’t insult them they’re human they have feelings too”…….. I want you to straight up…. fly to the moon…… and disappear from this planet……… but start by unfollowing me because you’re not worthy of me or my friends…………………. (((:

It’s genuinely terrifying how there’s millions of posts on here about astral travel but almost none of them talk about safety. If you just hopped on a random plane it could take you to Hawaiian resort or it could take you to a war zone. Why would you do this in astral? The astral realms aren’t imaginary places where nothing can ever hurt you. It’s not imaginary, and not every being in astral is benevolent. You can’t trust everyone you meet there.
Shield yourself, and shield your physical space so things can’t attack you or follow you back. Learn how to cleanse yourself and your space in case you pick up anything you don’t want. Learn how to effectively banish things so that if something does follow you back you can get rid of it. Don’t go to strange places in astral without a trust worthy guide. Set up secret passwords that only you and your guide know so that you can spot an imposter. If you can learn about the place and culture of where you’re going.
Astral is just like earth: there are safe places and dangerous places. There are people/spirits that are helpful and friend and others that hurt people for fun.
If you can’t protect yourself you have absolutely no business traveling out of body.
