First off, did you know that you can have a maximum of 15 drafts on Bulba's blogs? I had to delete some to save the notes I made for this article.
Have you ever read My Immortal and laughed until your sides split? Did you crave for more after the abrupt ending? I know I did. But the Mary Sue fanfictions just don't cut it for me.
I want to make my own Mary Sue or Gary Stu. I know I can't ever hold a candle to Ebony Dark'ness Dementia
Raven TaraRaven Way, but writing out my ideas and seeing what's on the table might help me (hopefully, us) make a fantastically hilarious Sue.
That's why I'll be examining MI and Mary Sues in general and giving my opinion on things. I'll cover such topics as, what traits are common in Sues? How do you write one with subtlety? Is the concept of a Mary Sue sexist? Do Mary Sues even exist? All in the effort of understanding bad fanfiction characters better, and creating the perfect monstrocity.
I would like unleash this character unto the world. I'm hoping you'll guys would help. If anyone is interested, you can start by suggesting what show, books, movies or games this Sue will be involved with. Preferably not Pokemon, since I know the anime and games too well, and most of the manga aren't too well known. With the ideas and opinions I'll put in, I hope to hear what you guys think. Heck, if this goes well, maybe there will be a fanfiction for them to star in. Hopefully it'll be a round-robin dealie, to add in new ideas. And because writing a complex fic is hard and time-consuming.
Next time, I'll talk about My Immortal, and why most knock-offs and parodies are just not as good as the original. Understanding why this story is remembered and why others...aren't will show what might work in created a memorable and hilarious Mary Sue or Gary Stu.
tl;dr suggest fandoms for a fictional terribad character. I'm gonna steal your ideas to create Frankenstein.
