Downplayed: The fans think Holly had the potential to be a great character, if only they had explored her in detail. They could have examined her problems with society and herself, and explained why she remained naively idealistic despite that. Instead, she's mostly a load who constantly has to be kept away from danger.
Deconstructed: Helpless Holly constantly getting herself in danger eventually leads to the death of her rescuer which turns her friends against her and causes them to abandon her to her fate the next time she gets in trouble.
