I wanted to make this stamp very long time ago... I saw alot of people that are calling our characters a Mary-Sues and they do, as though they are slightly better. But the opposite is true. Most people who call us Mary-sue have completely empty gallery. So they can only envy our characters... And if they have anything at the gallery, they are mostly unoriginal nonsenses. So it's very funny when they call us unoriginal.
So this is my opinion. I read very much about what a Mary Sue is, and most people seem like they never read anythog about what it is when they try to call Mary-sue anything what is nicer than their work. They just want to feel that they are a bit more, especially if theirs "opinion" includes attempts to insult and vulgar words.
For me, Mary Sue is NOT a character that is drawn in an existing style. Mary Sue is a character that was simple invented by recoloring of the SAME clothes parts of OFFICIAL characters (for example recolour the whole look, hair and clothes of Lisa Simpson and call her "original"). But if the character has its own distinctive appearance and behavior, so it can NOT be Mary Sue just because the character is drawn in a style that someone has already invented. If the same character will be drawn in our own style and still will have the same hair, same clothes, which we invented, even if in an existing style, so it will not be Mary Sue, or it will be Mary Sue even all the things 100% belong to us? That's stupid...
For example ... I have an original character named "Karla" (charlotte). She is drawn in MY original style and has an original hairstyle, appearance, behavior, clothes ... If I draw her for example in the style of Sonic, so she becomes Mary Sue? Just because she will be drawn in the style of Sonic? This argument is of the utmost absurdity.
My character Angi is usually drawn in a style Animaniacs, that belongs to the WB, but she has the original hair, clothes, appearance, behavior. Just being drawn in the style of the Animaniacs. Mostly because I like the style and it fit her. But still ... appearance and dress, and behavior ... I know that there are stubborn people who will still argue that he or she is Mary-Sue ... it's your opinion, but you would also have to respect this opinion and stop attacking strangers with the words that they are Mary-Sue, especially if it is not your thing and there is no need to blame them.
By the way...everyone started somehow. So you have a "Mary-Sue" at least once, too!
This stamp is for all those that have an ORIGINAL characters, just drawn in our favourite existing styles!
