Long story short: a Mary Sue crashes headlong into a Gary Stu's story. Sparks fly, and not the romantic kind, while the each keeps trying to usurp the story back from the other.

And now the long story not so short.

Ages ago, I had a character named Marie Suzette who was as shallow a Mary Sue parody as you can get. All of her Sue-ish traits were superficial and really humorless, all things considered. Lately, I've been reworking her into a PROPER parody.

Basically, I took a Mary Sue's typical 'flaws' and wrote the story around her so that her flaws actually got her in trouble for once!
Broods over her tragic backstory and has a 'feisty' temper? Nope, she's just a punk with a bad attitude who's stuck in the past. Clumsy, but in a cute way? Nah, she's ACTUALLY clumsy and it causes trouble at the most dramatic moments when she misses a target, or falls short of a jump during an action scene. And so forth.

I've also been writing the characters and setting she inhabits as satire for modern YA fiction, not just amateur fanfiction, with its stereotypical bland protagonists and unnecessary love triangles and one-dimensional villains. Yay affectionate parody! Emphasis on affectionate, because who hasn't written the occasional hackneyed plot with wish-fulfilling self-inserts?

  • Reading: Not nearly enough

Hello, hello! I'm nobody in particular, just someone finishing up an Associate's Degree at community college and trying to work out a way to get some of my less hair-brained story ideas onto paper.
