Rarity may have a few rotten moments here and there, but she can really nail the landing when it seriously counts. She's certainly one of the most complex characters on the show and I love every bit of her for it. What probably helps is that I grew up around a lot of Rarity type girls in my family so I understand the nuances between what a real vain and selfish girl is and one where that's just part of who she is, but that doesn't mean they can't be a fun loving and nice person to be around. Oh, and as an engineer, I completely identify with her creative and passion driven side (and maybe even her OCD. <3 her mess room). She may not be the perfect fit for everyone, but I've found plenty to like about her in my own way. Also, probably the best thing about Rarity that came about unexpectedly is that, despite her reserved nature, (And the fact she claims she's not really in to fighting) she can really lay the smackdown when need arises. I love a girl with sass and backbone.
