I laughed very hard...
Quote:
A young writer stopped on her keyboard, screaming in agony. "What is it?" her friend asked.
"It's-it's..." the writer's words were cut off with a gasp. "Mary....S-sue-"
"What?" her friend asked, gasping as she looked up into a pair of big emerald-like eyes.


Quote:



Do you know what to do?
Mary Sue, Mary Sue, is coming for you.
Run while you can, as fast as you may,
And you may not face a Mary Sue today.
She may be Nyra’s lackey, or maybe her daughter,
Beautiful and elegant with a tyrant as a father,
But be forewarned; she is deadly as can be,
One look and her beauty is all you’ll see.
She ran away from home, took out a whole regiment of kraals, too,
Because she’s a Mary Sue.

I can so picture a Mary Sue/ Gary Stu...XDDD

Yeah, kind of ironic, isn't it?

A Mary Sue is a very powerful, beautiful, prefect, and smart character (originally 'born' in FanFiction) who shows up all the other characters. Often a Mary Sue is born as royalty or a long lost sibling of the main character. There is a lovely explanation/drawing here: Here

In the story Aeronilla is a Sue because she is beautiful, every male drools over her, the females worship her, and her super awesome powers which I haven't got to yet.

Or is that just a cover-up for something much bigger and also terrible? You sicken me, deceitful one.

Okay, so if you read my last chapter, you probably read the review responses, so just for fun- for each chapter, I'd like people to come here and write their own fake reviews for each chapter. Remember that your review will be for the chapter you just read, and it's just for the italicized part. If I get some responses, I'll post them in the next chapter.

Ha ha, I know! They are too common these days. I think its because people put "so much of their time and effort making a perfect character that is made just how they want" that they don't want to "mess them up" by adding weaknesses...or "problems".

My way to tell them not to use Mary Sues?

Add a weakness. Why does it make them more realistic? It's called LIFE.

Nyra...augh. Her poer made her big-headed, yes, but that never really served her wrong. Her pride in herself, which can sometimes be a weakness, just made her stronger. It was really dumb XP

Lol, even Abila has wrongs I like to include. XD

I mean, she CAN burn down trees with the Lunos Sword...

...but what if she accidentally lights a friend on fire when they accidentally stumbled into the ring she drew? XD

And what if she was dragged around so bad that she wasn't recognisable, but not knowing this, called the ravens? Big mistake. XD
I might just include stuff like this in the RP's. XD

Yeah, I know a whole bunch of Mary Sues. I know so much of them... and they remind me of the Mary Sues in this, lol!

Anyway, this was EPIC, and I loved it! This is now one of my favorite stories, even if it ISN'T published. XD
