... introduce me to a frustrated, unhappy, petty person who transcends her faults and limitations to be glorious, then wipe her memory so she doesn't remember how truly wonderful she could be.
... give me a female character who can defeat all comers with one hand tied behind her back - except for her love interest.
... offer me a vivacious woman who cherishes her independence, and then have her get into a 'pickle' and need to be rescued.
... show me a smart active woman doing her utmost to save her world, then make me watch her raped by a monster while the virginal passive and 'pure' woman ends up happily married.
... capture me heart and soul with the story of a girl who was the useless baggage of a team, who vowed to be more to save someone she loved, who stepped up and stepped up, overcame set-back after set-back, until finally...she decided she would never be strong enough and that she would leave it to the guy to fulfil her vow.
... make me regret all that I loved about a story.
