My problem was you put forward a potential "bleed" through the lens that is possibly her semblance... but would not elaborate on whether it truly is her semblance or is just a joke the students created... the latter being something that would likely mean nothing to her yet be teased at by others, while the former would be mentioned by all those who knew her and likely herself as well should she be made aware of it...

I will note that as a reader this knowledge is unnecessary, yet as a writer I feel it is important to note the difference because otherwise it can lead to unintentionally misleading writing, which when writing something that is complex can completely derail the narrative and make any hints you give misread/disregarded.

it isn't you being hypocritical, as I said in my post where you asked if she needed a semblance; the answer is both yes and no

Yes she has one, that much I feel is undebatable, just as every person in this world has some form of talent, a semblance I feel is a special lens for a characters aura to impact the world.

However, this leads to where the "No" comes in; she does not need to ever discover what her semblance does, just as many people in our own world fail to discover their own potential or talents. This is a perfectly valid option...
