These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
The Scrappy / Creator's Pet: It's a little hard to tell which Barbivine is. If she's a Scrappy, she's an intentional one as she treats everyone with disdain, deliberately pisses them off for her own enjoyment, and in generall is a complete Jerkass. On the other hand, arguing for her Creator's Pet status works too, since she seems to spout an Author Filibuster as often as she does insults.
