MARYSUEMARYSUEMARYSUEMARYSUE by ShinyWhiteWaters MARYSUEMARYSUEMARYSUEMARYSUE by ShinyWhiteWaters
This stamp's neighbor-

Yes, I do dislike certain characters for certain traits, but some people treat "Mary Sues" like you HAVE to hate them.

They're quite possibly the least interesting characters EVER.

Mary Sue- A character claiming to be related to a popular character (I.e: Saying you're related to a king, queen, etc. Also being in relationship with a popular character. Take example of a Sonic the Hedgehog OC and pairing it up with Sonic or Shadow.) or having no flaws, being 'perfect'.

Actually, Mary Sues are usually classed as over detailed characters who aren't realistic at all.

What the Hell is a "Mary Sue," anyway?

It's a term commonly used if a character has no flaws or is really popular for no reason, idk. People just love to slap the term everyfuckingwhere whenever they nitpick at what they don't like about a character.

I see where you are coming from and totally respect your opinion. However, as a writer I know that Mary Sues can be good and bad in some situations. Example would be a magical person to have strong abilities in a non-magical realm. Another would be an immortal being that can destroy you in three second flat. 

Those are really the traits of a character that bother me the most.

MLP is so good because the mane six have good traits and bad traits and personalities. They thought through. Sometimes I feel people do not put much effort into their OC. Piling up good traits without any bad ones can be MS, as well as the opposite. 

Anyway, argument aside, I do love the coloring on this stamp.

I think it depends on how unrealistically awesome the character winds up being lol.

If the character is like the author, but is not 100% infallible then it is fine. However, the original Mary Sue from the original Star Trek fanfic who was so unrealistic that now we have the term Mary Sue link: www.jessesword.com/sf/view/109… <--um here. In the fanfic Mary Sue was the youngest officer in Starfleet history, awesome at everything from karate to zoology, everyone liked her, and was missed by everyone when she perished.

However, Lt. Mary Sue is a subversion of the concept, as her fic is made as a parody.

For me it depends. Because I watched an episode of MLP FIM and I just couldn't like the characters because of how marry-sueish I found them, but there are other shows with characters that are a bit like Mary Sue's/Gary Sue's but they are likeable.

I don't care if they're the personification of the writer's deepest desires, just make them interesting.

Really, the only thing I care about characters is if they're likeable. I even find "mary sues" to be likeable.

You also can't make them too likable... like the original Mary Sue.

That'd fall under bland, like Belle, she's a little too perfect, most complex motive maybe, but as a character she falls flat.

From Beauty and the Beast. Even by Disney princess standards, she's bland, she has no flaws, like Ariel's improper judgement, or Jasmine's arrogance, or even Snow White's timidness. B&B may be the best movie "dramatically" but character wise, I'd go with something like Lion King or even Brave.
