Do You Know What's a Mary Sue?

We have all heard about fanfiction. Some people wonder what's so great about fanfiction and why are people so obsessed with it. It's simple. People fantasize. It's like little girls fantasy to be in the shoe of the fairy tale princess. The same logic applies to Mary Sue.

What's a fanfic? 
Fanfic is works written by fans on based on their favorite pairings. Some writers create their own characters (OC) to interact with the canon characters. Occasionally, some female writers get too obsessed with one particular character. In this case, she creates a character that she wishes is herself. This type of character is called Mary Sue.

What's a Mary Sue?

Mary Sue is the embodiment of the writer's fantasy character. She is generally flawless, talented, pretty, irresistible  Nearly everyone wants to have a go with her. Mary Sues differ from Original Characters because they are mostly disliked by other readers. They are also the central character the story spins around. The canon characters are just there to satisfy her superiority. Mary Sues are so perfect that they become extremely annoying. People read fanfic because they want to fantasize their favorite pairing... not about some bimbo hottie getting the dude. Of course, the Mary Sue writers don't see it that way. To them, their Mary Sue is perfect. Perfect for the male canon character the author desires (in another word, Mary Sue = author themselves sexing up the male).

You can probably tell from my tone that I loathe Mary Sues... I avoid them like plague. I can rant on and on until I bore you all away, but I'm not going to do that. I'm going to show you an amazing parody song... No one can explains the definition of Mary Sue better than this.


But I have to show you one perfect example of Mary Sue... Even a noob reader can tell it's her! (I'm still debating whether the writer is a troll or a really, really, really desperate girl) Behold the infamous My Immortal that most Harry Potter fanfic readers know about... if you don't know about it... now you do! (Ps. I feel mean laughing at it but as a normal human being... it's irresistible!)

Chapter 1.
AN: Special fangz (get it, coz Im goffik) 2 my gf (ew not in that way) raven, bloodytearz666 4 helpin me wif da story and spelling. U rok! Justin ur da luv of my deprzzing life u rok 2! MCR ROX!

Hi my name is Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that's how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don't know who she is get da hell out of here!). I'm not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he's a major fucking hottie. I'm a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I'm also a witch, and I go to a magic school called Hogwarts in England where I'm in the seventh year (I'm seventeen). I'm a goth (in case you couldn't tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

"Hey Ebony!" shouted a voice. I looked up. It was…. Draco Malfoy! 

"What's up Draco?" I asked.

"Nothing." he said shyly. 

But then, I heard my friends call me and I had to go away. 

AN: IS it good? PLZ tell me fangz! 

Best. Conversation. Ever.
Basically, the whole story (read it for pure entertainment) is about this irresistible 'goffik girl' and her love for Draco and his gay lover Harry Potter who is called... Vampire... (I'm laughing so hard right now... Vampire... oh dear *wipe tears*). Long story short, Ebony is an emo girl who shops at Hot Topic and hates preps/posers. She wears fishnet, black gothic dresses with a shitload of pink. She has the tendency to slice her arm whenever she is depressed for no reason whatsoever. Hmmm... Draco is a whim. Harry is ... I don't even know. 

Oh, and one of my favorite descriptions of Voldemort. 

Then all of a suddenly, an horrible man with red eyes and no nose and everything started flying towards me on a broomstick! He didn't have a nose (basically like Voldemort in the movie) and he was wearing all black but it was obvious he wasn't gothic. It was… Voldemort!

"Ebony." he yelled. "Thou must kill Vampire Potter!" 

Voldemort gave me a gun.

YEAH! Because using a wand is too mainstream! And describing a character by comparing him to himself before introducing his name is totally hipster... Hell this sentence makes no sense! I wanted to add how hipster Voldemort would look with big frame glasses, then I realize... he doesn't have a nose... sad imaginative blogger is sad.

Another priceless line from My Immortal:

We started to kiss everywhere and my pale body became all warm. And then….

"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!" 

It was….Dumbledore!


Oh, you are sooo nasty Dumbledore. I laugh so hard I have tears in my eyes. Ah, I haven't laughed this much. If I kicked a puppy by accident and I should read this again... I bet I will feel like an angel afterward. 

I happen to find another equally priceless fanfic that I will blog later. For now, let's just enjoy this wonderland Mary Sue fanfic. 

So before you whoop your ass out of here to find the fanfic:

    1. Worst LOTR fanfic ever: Frodo and Galadriel. Sex.
      The explaination? Galadriel is apparently a pedophile, and hobbits are the closest thing to children that's legal.
