Reasons I like Violet Hunter:

  • She is completely unperturbed by Sherlock being dismissive of her at first - she’s like, “Yeah, I know it’s ridiculous to come to you with this, but you’d know straight off the bat if this is some creepy human trafficking ring and not a babysitting gig, and I’m a lady on a time limit. Thanks, bub!”
  • She manages herself in a Creepy As Shit situation for a pretty fuckin’ long time.
  • When she does call up Holmes again, she actually works with him a surprising amount, considering the involvement of a lot of other clients. She’s right there in the thick of it.
  • John is actually really disappointed when Sherlock lets Violet leave, because he was a little bit convinced that she would be a good match for him. After Irene Adler, that would be really interesting to look at in the BBC ‘verse. Because honestly, that means that Violet could be shown to be a lot like John - seemingly ordinary, but has that interesting quirk that means she does swimmingly in a crisis and clicks well with Sherlock. But, of course, Sherlock already has John. 
  • She’s successful as all hell after the case is over. Get. It. Lady.

GATISS! MOFFAT! THOMPSON! GIMME VIOLET HUNTER OR SUFFER MY…UNSPOKEN DISAPPOINTMENT.

    ALL OF THE ABOVE. Not that anyone would know that I was a fan of hers or anything…

    Excellently stated! Personally I wouldn’t want Thompson to write her, but Gatiss or Moffat should GET ON THIS. In fact,...
