CONCERNING MOLLY’S LOVE FOR SHERLOCK
i’ve been thinking about this since the beginning of this blog and finally decided to write out my view on it.
if you feel like i’m pushing you into a ship between sherlock and molly, i can assure you that i’m not. of course, it’s a relationship that i want to explore because i find it interesting, but i would never force you into anything you don’t want. but the thing is, if your sherlock has no interest in molly whatsoever or does have it, one thing will remain as it was in the show.
molly loves sherlock. i cannot erase that part, make her uncaring of how sherlock behaves, feels or make her not react to his touches, softer words. it’s a big part of her as a character and making it disappear would change her radically. if you want to keep your sherlock disinterested in her that’s fine with me, but i cannot make her disinterested in sherlock. unrequited love is something i have a first hand experience off ( yes even with the object of my affections being aware of what i feel ). and i’m more than ok to keep it as unrequited between your sherlock and my molly. but erasing her feelings for the man would make me write her as out of character ( not concerning any alternative universes )
in my main verse she loves sherlock, she earns for his touch or a compliment. she keeps her hopes up that maybe, maybe, someday something might happens. she waited for so long and she will keep waiting. whether it will happen or not is up to you but one thing will remain unchanging. molly will want sherlock.
i hope you understand that and i hope that you don’t feel like i’m forcing a ship onto you. it’s not my intentions. i’m just trying to keep molly as close to her characterization in the show as possible.
