Mary Morstan is a character - feel free to hate her all that you want; however, Amanda Abbington is a person, and does not deserve the hate that she’s been receiving. You are sending death threats to an actress that was hired to play a character. The actress has literally nothing to do with the character, besides the fact that they share a face and voice. She is Martin’s partner and we all adore the both of them, and I wouldn’t put it past Martin to consider dropping Sherlock - which he is choosing to be a part of - because his partner is being harassed by the fans of the show.
We love Martin, and we love how he portrays John, we love his and Benedict’s dynamic, and Amanda has always been extremely supportive of the fandom and our completely odd shenanigans, so don’t go chasing after her with pitchforks and torches just because she’s playing a character that is the love interest of one half of our duo.
She’s a real human being, not a fictional one. Just stop.
I think to celebrate I will do a sherlock themed giveaway! More details later today!

Ben stop staring.
To take my mind off all the Sherlock stuff, cuz I was and still am on sensory overload, I made me a Punk!SailorMoon and yes I know I am SO LATE on this train. But still. I hope to make it a print for Dash Con but for now here is a sneak peek.
so I am assuming that both Mycroft and Molly are the people who mattered most that Moriarty overlooked. Probably because of Sherlock’s attitude towards them. He really likes Molly and she is one of his friends, even though he treats her horribly sometimes. Same with Mycroft because I am pretty sure that Sherlock loves his brother(and Mycroft loves him as well) but the way he treats him, which may seem beyond the norms of a sibling relationship (but then again look at who we are talking about) and may give the perception he hates him in a way.
So I really hope that they both are.
