I'm sorry; maybe I'm unclear on all of the permutations of the Mary Sue concept, but I don't see how this qualifies. Would someone mind explaining please?

to quote wikipedia

Mary Sue is an idealized character, often but not necessarily an author insert.[1]

But art and literature doesn't happen in vacuum, every fictional character is somewhat a reflection of its author. I mean look at the body of work of Charles Bukowski, as an example. Practically all of his books are semi-autobiographical. And the protagonists from Kurt Vonnegut's books are just version of himself. Some of the greatest works of literature had stand-ins for the author, On the Road for another example, Sal Paradise is just Jack Kerouac.

My concern is the danger of derisively dismissing every fictional character who bares some resemblance to author as a Mary Sue/Gary Stu then you've just obviating the purpose of literature.

Other Mary Sues/Gary Stus:

Captain Kirk
Luke Skywalker
Harry Potter
King Arthur (orphan who has a special destiny) 
Charles Foster Kane (Citizen Kane)
Hamlet
Sigurd/Siegfried
Theseus

One could scour literature, folktales, and mythology and find them replete with Mary Sues/Gary Stus. And if we then purge all of them, we wouldn't have many stories left to tell. I've read through TVTrope subcategories and it's mind numbing. My concern is that it will stifle or paralyze the creativity of budding authors who will want to avoid creating a type of Sue.

who cares? 



 it is not about anyone else's opinion whether or not mary sue is a good or bad thing. that is usually a situational thing.

some are gonna be god, some bad

she just doesn't like how HER little vampire tale turned out :)


not every action a character does in any tale stands for something greater, or symbolical
a character in a story represents a single person, not every person.
in today's overanalytical age this is  too often forgotten.

sometimes a cigar is just a cigar as Freud would put it XD
and here, a character disliking her own mary sue self insert is a character disliking her own mary sue  self insert.

If it's any comfort, the image put me in mind of the Bride's of Dracula as per Bram Stoker's original masterpiece rather than any inferior genre writer.

Don't worry, Lisa--I hear that's how the "Twilight" series got started! :D (Big Grin)

(And she reads this comment, then promptly goes out, deletes the whole vampire story, formats the hard drive it was saved on, and then burns the computer just to be sure the story is gone... Evil Onion )

Why the hell does everyone think going "Mary Sue" is such a bad thing? If it produces an enjoyable story then I say do it.

At the risk of losing my membership card to Comic Book Fanboy Association...what does Mary Sued mean? I understand it is an action based on a character but do not understand the reference. (awaits flame attacks)

The prototypical Mary Sue is an original female character in a fanfic who obviously serves as an idealized version of the author mainly for the purpose of Wish Fulfillment. She's exotically beautiful, often having an unusual hair or eye color, and has a similarly cool and exotic name. She's exceptionally talented in an implausibly wide variety of areas, and may possess skills that are rare or nonexistent in the canon setting. She also lacks any realistic, or at least story-relevant, character flaws — either that or her "flaws" are obviously meant to be endearing.
