PostSubject: About mary sue   Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:44 am

A Mary Sue (sometimes just Sue), in literary criticism and particularly in fanfiction, is a fictional character with overly idealized and hackneyed mannerisms, lacking noteworthy flaws, and primarily functioning as wish-fulfillment fantasies for their authors or readers. Perhaps the single underlying feature of all characters described as "Mary Sues" is that they are too ostentatious for the audience's taste, or that the author seems to favor the character too highly.

original characters in role-playing games or literary canon are also sometimes criticized as being "Mary Sues" or "canon Sues," if they dominate the spotlight or are too unrealistic or unlikely in other ways.

if you want to know completely what is mary sue or sue
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Sue

take a try at these test to your character:

http://www.onlyfiction.net/marysue.html

hope it could be useful.

Oh, I've taken the test on the first link before. It's pretty good at showing how Mary-Sue your character can be. I'll post my results later when I have the time. XP

Well, this is what I got for my fanfic OCs from the first link:

Saiyuki:
Ayaki Minako - 23
Enko Kaida - 12

Prince of Tennis:
Hana Mirai - 20
Sutki Amayo - 17

Yu-Gi-Oh GX:
Tome Mitsumi - 19
Kato Tori - 5

I'm pretty sure the reason why Tori is the lowest is because she has no love interest in my fanfic plot. Minako is the highest because she was the first OC I ever made (even though I changed around her background a lot since I first came up with her).

Xerus : ^_^;;

Mey : "He doesn't get it..." facepalm

OK, I'll bump this thread for the newest mary sue test :

http://www.katfeete.net/writing/marysue.html


1.) Heero Kaito :

Heero Kaito is nothing like you. He is not at all cool; in fact, he thinks cool is a temperature reading, and when he says "Oh, I just put on whatever old thing's lying around," he means "on the floor, where I threw it last night - but I turned the underwear inside out first." He may have sometimes thought that he was special, or destined for greater things, but probably dismissed the idea as a fantasy. He's come in for his share of hurt, but gotten off with minor damage. And you've been sparing with the free handouts: whatever he gains, he's worked for.

In general, you care deeply about Heero Kaito, but you're smart enough to let him stand on his own, without burdening him with your personal fantasies or propping him up with idealization and over-dramatization. Heero Kaito is a healthy character with a promising career ahead of him.

Overall : 23


2. Mey :

Mey is nothing like you. She isn't really very cool: she blends into crowds, she hangs out on the fringes at parties, and wearing shades after dark makes her run into things. She may have sometimes thought that she was special, or destined for greater things, but probably dismissed the idea as a fantasy. She's come in for her share of hurt, but gotten off with minor damage. And she's gotten no slack from you.

In general, you care deeply about Mey, but you're smart enough to let her stand on her own, without burdening her with your personal fantasies or propping her up with idealization and over-dramatization. Mey is a healthy character with a promising career ahead of her.


Overall : 18

Got a score of 33 for my original character, Aoi. She's from a story I'm writing.

This thread needs a bump, seeing how important a character development is, especially for our Roleplay Zone, it's good to have character that is well thought and not a sue.

In Roleplay Zone you'll see some of our Roleplay has rule for you to avoid a Mary Sue.
Lycoris' post already explain what a Mary Sue is, so read it if you don't know about Mary Sue yet.

I'll make this thread sticky in Lyna's Roleplay Zone, as this is important if you want to develop a healthy character.

OK, for those who wants to build an OC, you might want to open this URL and this URL too. It's pretty long but consists of advices on how to make a non-mary sue character. Hope this helps.

Actually, this is a wrong place to ask about that, but... oh, well.

You can post it in the discussion thread of the RP you're interested in. Or if there's none, just post it right in the RP thread itself, and then you can immediately join by adding your reply to continue the story. ^^
