Or Aragorn, or Elrond, or Kili, or Bilbo, or Legolas, or any number of male characters who are SUPER SPECIAL AND AWESOME but whose awesome specialness is never questioned.
The Mary Sue accusation is such an odd one, because it’s almost always used as an excuse to hate a woman or a female character when there’s no other reason to hate her - when she’s done everything right. If a woman hasn’t hurt the fee fees of some beloved male character or slept with the wrong guy or had the wrong skin color or once looked at a man in a way that might be construed as mildly disrespectful, and if people still hate her because she gets to smile at a character they like, then shouting MARY SUE GROSS is apparently the way for them to pretend they’re not a raving misogynist with an incredibly disturbing need to shit all over other women.
I mean look at the reasoning behind the hatred of Tauriel: she’s too important. She gets too much attention. She’s too pretty. She has two male characters who also think she’s pretty. She’s too good at what she does. It’s the old “who does that bitch think she is” syndrome, and it’s tired and stupid and boring, and I wish people would think up another cliche.
