Like we really needed a pro to write about this, psssh.

Here's a really interesting journal essay that's about sexuality in the ASOUE universe, and talks about... well, among other really interesting things, Count Olaf and Violet's relationship. Oh ho ho.

"As the potential objects of heterosexual male desire, women face the continual threat of losing their agency and becoming the beloved rather than the lover, the object rather than the subject. This theme is most evident in Snicket's mourning over his lost Beatrice (as will be discussed in the following section), but it is also apparent in regard to Violet and her persistent 'suitor,' Olaf."

Yes, read on, because this is made of much win.
