That's tooo real. ;( Reply MaREY Sue… Reply This is basically barbie and sofea the first Reply Daenerys Targaryen brought me here. Reply Almost wrote a Mary Sue She quickly turned into a monster 😂😂😂😂 Reply Do one on anti-sues Reply Quite a bit like early renaissance era stories of Knight's Errant. When Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes returned from Moorish captivity, he took to bashing the terribly uncreative tales and overly perfect characters. Some authors would write stories as entirely creative as setting up a big battle and then watching a great hero come in to save the day by simply slicing through the army using a single swing. Reply Lazy…cheap…spend…. wait, you are me! Reply Goku in dragon Ball super in a nutshell, I should let my dragon Ball fanboy die a long time ago Reply I just realized a bunch of Game of Thrones (in the TV show) characters are in this category… Reply Harry Potter? Reply Also, Captain America is a Mary Sue and he's a popular Hero. He even states in one of his movies for Iron Man to stop cussing. He's powerful, and you dont see him have any flaws; other then regret for not being there for his love. He's a all around good guy. for fuck sakes. Reply Why ARE Mary Sues bad?! This debate kind of angers me; because I LIKE heroic all around goodguys. A Glorious paladin; that is pure of heart, body and mind. Just because she is perfect and strong; dose not mean she is bland ad boring. She is a hero to look up to. I have a paladin rp character on wow. And when I look at her I like that she is a all around 'goodguy'. A legendary powerful hero that shines with truth and justice and is kind all around… It angers me that Mary Sues are treated this way JUST because they are heroes that we dream to be. You know what? No. I don't care if some RPers or writers or creators dont like Mary Sues' I like them. Because they are a fantasy in the world today. Something to dream about as a human being of being; of looking up too. So no. I'm not changing my OC Character. And no, I also have alot of players that RP with her; and they like her personality. Reply passive-aggressively glances at Aphmau Reply Ok but if mary sue was used as good character concept. Reply 2:00 Villainous crush in a nutshell Reply A character so powerful they can't lose a fight could work in a work where the stakes aren't in the fights. Perhaps her immense power can't help her do math homework, or get her sister to forgive her for eating the final burrito. Reply So… Godsuya (aka Shiba Tatsuya) is a Mary Sue and the novel still manages to be awesome, nice Reply Arya Stark Reply Coming here after Game of Thrones is rather entertaining Reply That's Terrible Advice! Thank you so much. I'm on it, right now! I shall call my story… "Star Wars: Return and Rise of the Force Awakened One". Reply As long as your Mary Sue/Marty Stu/Gary Stu story remains either in your head, or is never put out for anyone else to see, your protaginist is designated as a "milquetoast".Once you've crossed that line, and actually published it (either online at a fan fic account…or worse…. officially ) then your character is immediately, and without question designated "Mary Sue/Marty Stu/Gary Stu". 😀 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
