This has been brewing in me for some time, the first time I heard of this was just recently, because I didn't care to learn of it before a friend cried to me because someone called her character that because of how she looked. In doing my research I've found out more and what most call a 'Mary Sue' is what we all want our characters, even ourselves to be: Flawless, Loved by All, Smart, Brave, Kind...in short Perfect. 

We do not write them this way because it is not realistic...but we picture them that way in our heads. Anyone who says they don't is a liar. I have had my OC for years and she is my base OC, I do not have many, I modify her for the stories because to me she is perfect, but flawed as to appear real. But in my fantasies, the ones I do not write down because I don't want to be judged for a silly fantasy, she is stronger than Lord Voldemort, smarter than Hermoine, braver than Harry, more loyal than Ron, more cunning than Draco and could catch the heart of every boy at Hogwarts. She is as peppy as America, as well trained as Germany, as well read as England, as romantic as France, as much a smart ass as Romano, as kind as Italy, as musically talented as Austria, as kinky as Prussia, as fun loving as Spain, as wise as China, as strategic as Japan and as strong as Russia. In my thoughts she could have any and every nation as her lover and not be judged for it. Yet I don't put them on paper.

Some OC's are young. And I do not mean in their age, but in their conception. I recall my earlier fics, in which she could have been seen as a 'Mary Sue'. We are all guilty of this and in the end we are embarrassed because of our 'selfish', childish', 'stupid' fantasies, so we take it out on others who wish to put the fantasy onto paper or word document. Which is sad. There is a difference in critiquing and insulting. And from what I see, it's insulting being done. I have seen a fanfic writer even stop writing three short oneshots in because of the hate being sent her way. She had only been writing fics for three one shots...that is not enough time to develop an OC, or fanfic style or voice. We hate on these so called 'Mary Sue' characters, when we all have them, our OC's, tragic back story, unique singular talent, quirks, likes, dislikes, pain, suffering, trials and tribulations, hide our true need for appreciation and being loved by all and being flawless or perfect. 

A 'Mary Sue' character is not a crime, a 'Mary Sue' story is not a crime, and we should not treat them this way. Sometimes a fanfic writer just wants to fantasize about being able to overcome all problems their character may face when they cannot do so in real life. So next time you want to hate on 'Mary Sue' remember, she is you deep down. 

And if you want to hate my defense of her, you are free to do so. I am just speaking my mind, not to be hurtful or hateful, just to put my thoughts out there and save some OCs out there from the scrap pile, because in every 'Mary Sue' is a full fledged character that just needs nurturing to come out, offer ideas for improvement not hate for their perfection...I mean...nobody is perfect...we know this...but we want to be. So my defense of 'Mary Sue' is a defense of how a fandom should nurture and accept one another not hate and deny one another. 

Think before you type, is it hate or help. 

'Mary Sue' I defend you because, hell in my head I'm as flawless as you...maybe even in an unposted fic or two. 

Happy Writing.

hi, I'm Carlette some people call me Carly but i prefer my full 1st name lest you insist. lol. anyway....I am a 20 year old sophmore in college to become a school teacher. i am obsessed with 90s cartoons and kids shows, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Manga. My current anime obsession is Hetalia Axis Powers.

I love to write FanFic and other things, but FanFic is what i post the most...hey that rhymes...and that just reminded me, in every FanFic the leading lady is named after my alter ego Salacia. If you ask nicely you can call me that or Sal...but call me Sally and you die.

Also something i should note, i am outspoken and opinionated but openminded...in the sense that i am damn sure I'm right but know that hey i might be wrong and if so...so be it. and if i say something to upset you...please just leave it be...there is no point in calling out that i did not cater to your personal sensitivities. Also if you do call me on it i might just insult you again...on purpose. Just kidding...or am I? I was not raised to lie or sugar coat things so i tend not to do either this is just a warning to those who want me to do those things...it's never gonna happen. If you want me to lie, say so, don't ask and expect one. If you want my honsest opinion...just be prepared to get what you asked for.

I will also make a note on my deviant name TSsweets...that the TS stands for Tourettes Syndrome. I have this disorder and thus am a highly functioning Autistic woman. this is an area that i am opinionated in. I have this...er..."disability"...all mother i hate that word...but that does not make me less than anyone else.

Also i am a pagan and i am not ashamed of this fact. i have no problem with Christianity or most of those who believe in it but i do have an issue when a person tells me i'm going to hell or they try to convert me. I don't down talk your religion or try to push mine on you I would love it if you would extend me the same courtasy.

Well...that's about all for now...oh wait i have a small obsession with the Russian language, culture and country. And Hetalia has made this obsession worse. :iconsexyrussiaplz:
