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.

    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,...
