@kirroha: I really have no right to say anything because I know nothing of the series but.... O___O
Canon Mary Sues does too exist, and I'm sure you're aware of that. I can't comment on her having personality flaw because I have no idea about the series at ALL, but watch out for "non-flaws". "Flaws" that don't cause trouble for the character is not a real flaw. You mentioned that she is annoying and arrogant, but does that cause a realistic effect? Like people in the story being annoyed at her? If her personality does nothing bad to her, then it's not a flaw and she could still possibly a Sue. Also, you mentioned that she is not a Sue because you love to hate her. You hating or loving a character has nothing to do with that character being a Mary Sue or not, so that is not a legit reason of why said character is not a Sue.
Always remember that even if a story has Mary Sues as characters, the story can still be good as long as it's executed well, so you shouldn't be too defensive if people point out that characters from a certain series/story is a Mary Sue. Like, I'm pretty sure Alucard from Hellsing is a Gary Sue. He's practically a god there! But the story is still good.
Now why has this thread turned into a discussion about Mary Sues? O______O
@suigintou: Sui, you can have a mod close the thread if you find that this thread is no longer helpful... How's the story, btw? Don't tell me my know-it-all rants discouraged you from writing it. I feel so bad if it's so
