My reaction to people use "mary-sue" to criticize Twilight's character:
There are many definitions of a Mary Sue, from what I've researched.
Some say that a Mary Sue is someone who is perfect in every way. Others say that a Mary Sue can have flaws, but they don't actually harm them, and even coincidentally benefits them in the end. Still others say that a Mary Sue can have flaws that do harm them, but are too easily forgiven by others. What's the right definition? I don't know, but the fact that some posters get so dramatic about a character they dislike and excessively throw that label around makes me want to avoid threads about "Mary Sue" like the plague.
