I swore when I dreamt up this character that I would never draw her. And then I drew her. So I swore I'd never write her. After all, a ninja-in-training in Leaf Village, with the Phoenix sealed inside of her? Slight Mary Sue material, right?
Until my friend pointed out that she sucks since she's failed once at the ninja academy (she was in the year after Naruto, flunked, and now is in Konohamaru's class). And she's an idiot. And her attacks are pretty much useless. And apparently, she's nothing like me, so my friends claim then that she's not a Mary Sue.
In that case...I'm going to write her story eventually.
But she looks all spiffy in her 'angry Phoenix' stage.
We're just going to pretend that she isn't going to be knocked out in about 30 seconds without landing even a punch....:P
