I love this. I keep making Mary Sue characters and never finishing stories because I hate them. I love that you included ways to fix this, I’m going to try them out!

Though there are some big stories with Mary Sue characters cough a big author with a real author’s name…

Who are you talking about? You can pm me the name if you don’t want to say it on this thread. I’m just curious is all.

I’m glad you like! I’m probably going to be adding more “advanced” tips on top of these ones for the next Mary Sue blog post since my website isn’t just aimed at Episode writers anymore :stuck_out_tongue: Hopefully you’ll find some stuff to help!

These are some great tips to fix Mary Sues. Personally, I am fed up with Mary Sues, since they are so “perfect” they seem inhumane. Flawing your characters is not bad. It’s not bad at all. It is actually a great exercise to learn and make your characters more realistic. That way, the reader can relate more to the mc. Nobody is perfect!
