1. What’s your favorite travel destination?
London. I’ve been there already twice this year and I’m flying there again next week. :)
2. What was your most vivid dream?
I often have really vivid dreams that they seem so real that when I wake up I have to take a second to remember what is real and what isn’t. The last one I had was actually about my friends and I dreamt about one of them baking for us (as you can see food is a very important part of my life ^^). Usually it’s car chases or murder cases or waking up late and missing important appointments. It really depends on what I did before I went to bed and what is going on in my life atm.
3. What’s your favorite genre?
Film or book genre? Either way I enjoy quite a lot of different things.
I’m really into crime both for books and tv shows and by that I mean Criminal Minds or books by Tess Gerritsen and Simon Beckett. Crime stories with real sociopaths because I’m fascinated by the psychology behind it all. Then there’s sci-fi and fantasy like Doctor Who, Merlin, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and Star Wars but I also like period dramas and stories like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. Especially when it comes to reading I enjoy a lot of classics.
So I guess I don’t have a favourite genre, I’m just interested in a lot of things and it highly depends on the mood I’m in.
4. Have you ever done anything in front of an audience? If yes what?
Yup, when I was still playing the piano I played at some grammar school concerts and stuff. Then I was in the school choir for 6 years and sang in a girl group for a while. Apart from that I only did some playback musical performances, so I basically only had to lip-sync while dancing in nice costumes which was quite a lot of fun. I’m not bad at giving presentations and I don’t feel uncomfortable talking in front of a big group of people anymore but I could never act on stage.
5. Have you ever met a celebrity? If yes which?
I met David Tennant after watching his play Richard II last January. Two days later I “ran into” Rupert Grint at a pub after the play Mojo which he was in at that time. I saw some celebs at Cardiff Comic Con but I guess that doesn’t count ;)
6. What’s your personality type? If you don’t know you can take the test here.
7. Name an unforgettable experience.
Meeting celebrities (see #5) although I was so excited at meeting DT that I can’t really recall it completely. And one unforgettable experience was the Passenger concert I was at last month. One of the best memories of my life.
8. Can you play any music instruments? If yes which?
As I already mentioned above I used to play the piano, due to not practising at all most of it is gone. But I learned to play the guitar instead.
9. Who was/is your favorite teacher at school?
Oh that’s a difficult one because I finished school like 6 years ago and it’s all a bit hazy. I generally liked school tbh and I got along with most of my teachers. I remember liking my art teacher because he was really laid back and relaxed and friendly but at the same time actually taught us some techniques. The teacher being in charge of school choir of course was one of my favs as well because he was really cool and arranged songs like Hakuna Matata or the Sound of Silence for a students choir and then got those 100 people to actually give their best at the concerts (and he was practically unbeatable at foosball). And the third one was my German teacher for a while and she was just fun. When we went on a school trip to London and my friend and I decided to ditch the sight seeing tour and instead sneak off to see a play at the Globe, she didn’t get angry (after enquiring about our whereabouts) but actually made us buy a ticket for her, too.
10. Do you ever wish you were born in another country? If yes which?
As much as I want to live in the UK now, I loved growing up in Germany. I think when it comes to education, security and economical stability Germany is a pretty good place to be living.
11. Any regrets?
Regrets? Sure, I regret a ton of things. Like the outfits I thought were “cool” when I was 13 or changing myself to fit in or be accepted, all that crap you do when you’re young (I sound as if I’m 40 o_O but I’m only 24). Or half of the stuff I said or did when I was drunk. But although I still cringe at some of these memories I still think they were somehow worth it. Because life is made up of good and bad memories and experiences, they shape us and as long as you learn from your mistakes they are not really that bad. One of the things I learned is that if you want to do something really badly, you just should. Because the only real regrets I have are not taking chances, not doing what I wanted to because somebody else persuaded me or because I overthought it.

Molly is the only person who Sherlock apologises to:
He doesn’t stop the slap, when a boxer doesn’t defend himself it tells you the same thing as when an assassin doesn’t shoot straight - they’re not really trying…
Molly is the only one who makes Sherlock look sad:
Takes Molly on a “Sherlock” date, they solve crimes together and Molly :"Had a lovely day".
She’s the only one to ever make him awkward or stutter:
He never remembers Greg’s name, but he remembers Tom’s. Never before did he hold back a hurtful deduction then here:
Molly is the only one who Sherlock doesn’t think is an idiot, and she’s the only one ever to read him, to break him down to a human being.
Then, of course there’s this: When Sherlock needed someone, more then he’s ever needed anyone in his life, when he thinks he’s going to die, who does he turn to? When he’s shot by his best friend’s wife, who saves him? What does he need? No, he doesn’t need anything from her, because he simply need her. Molly. His Molly. His pathologist.
Queen of his mind palace.
"So, she becomes one of the very small select band of people that he absolutely trusts. And he adores Molly, of course he does. He loves her"
This is all very nice and sweet and BUT wait a second:
"So, she becomes one of the very small select band of people that he absolutely trusts. And he adores Molly, of course he does. He loves her”
You cannot just drop Moffat quotes like this and not give a source! I mean, even if he’s for once saying something I actually like BUT where is the source for this? Where did this come from?!
