Aggra is a complete zero.  She's a shallow love interest whose only characterization beyond the physical is "invalidating tsundere," and whose only concrete purpose in the story seems to be getting pregnant.  This makes her a pulsating wad of unfortunate implications on several levels.  I've read fanfics by people who don't even like the character1 that make her both deeper and a hell of a lot more sympathetic than she canonically is.

And getting butthurt at me for daring to think that this is a bad thing?  Jumping to conclusions in regards to my motives for disliking the character (i.e. either that I want every story to be a romance, or that I dislike her for not being a certain blond human mage whom I'm actually more likely to 'ship with her studies)?  Not helping your case at all.

1. Thus proving that there's a difference between liking a character and believing that she's potentially redeemable.  Personally, I think they're going to kill her off as soon as they need to hurt Thrall by proxy.

I think you've been a bit bloody harsh there.
Crino, Straf, Kurno Neko, Hinta, Hina and several other "invalidating tsunderes" should take offense at this. After all, once she gets what she wants she stops kicking him in th ankles becasue she loves him. or something.


Mind you I don't have another label apart from wet blanket i would like to apply.

Okay...on second reading, looks like you're saying that calling Aggra an invalidating tsundere is an insult to invalidating tsunderes everywhere.  Disregard previous; I suck.

Well, except for the part where she kicked him in his "dead foster sister" sore spot.  Because what the hell.
