How is Ginny’s quidditch ability more Mary-Sue than Harry’s, when she has been secretly practising since she was 6, and Harry magically caught the remembrall in an amazing, unprecedented performance the first time he got on a broom (discounting his brief use of a toy broom at like 1)? Oh, wait.
How is Ginny’s attractiveness more Mary-Sue than Harry’s, when she dated like 2 or 3 people, and Harry was asked to the Yule Ball by a second/third year, dated popular Cho Chang, and was pursued by Romilda Vane? Hang on, looks like they’re both considered attractive.
How is Ginny’s skill at performing hexes more Mary-Sue worthy than Harry’s magical ability, when he could produce a corporeal patronus in third year? Oops.
How about Ginny’s social skills? Yeah, Harry is angsty for the 5th book especially so he isn’t ‘perfect’, but Ginny was unable to speak to Harry for the first few books. Looks like there’s relative equity again.
Humour? They both display wit.
Ability to deal with trauma? He suffers far more, but she forges ahead and deals with the aftermath of possession by Voldemort effectively alone. She deals too, and isn’t completely unscathed, demonstrated in the 5th book when she talks to Harry about it.
Looks like if Ginny’s a ‘Mary-Sue’, so is Harry. So maybe we should consider that before dismissing her. ‘Mary-Sue’ is a bullshit, sexist term anyway, no time for that.
You are my new favorite person.
Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, kiddos. Either you use both Mary Sue and Gary Stu, or you use neither.
I hate the term “Mary Sue.”
Now, I think that sadly, Ginny was not given the time in the narrative that she DESERVED. She is too often ignored or simply presented as a love interest for Harry, which is disappointing.
But damn, hate the way that she was underutilized by the narrative, not the amazing character herself because the narrative failed her in many ways.
