…You know, I still can't believe I'm actually doing this…
Ah, well. Welcome one and all to my slight break from writing Fanfiction (I swear I'll get back to it soon, I just need to get that stupid part for my computer at home, since I have no time to update/no way to reach my betas at school. 'Mutters darkly') to lend a helping hand to anyone who's interested! If you didn't get the concept in the summary, I'm WingsOfMorphius and I'm here to offer you some tips and tricks to character creation to help you avoid the dreaded Mary/Gary Sues.
To start, I'm gonna educate you guys on exactly what a Mary/Gary Sue is. (We all have to learn somewhere, after all…) Generally speaking, these are characters that are too 'perfect' to be believable. They're the ones that are the smartest, prettiest, strongest, fastest, most charismatic person in the world and who have no flaws whatsoever. The main character usually falls in love with them on sight,

The gun was set against my temple. My heart was beating quickly, pounding like a caged bird against my ribcage, and I could feel the perspiration rolling down my back and sticking my hair to my neck. Blood was leaking steadily from the wound in my leg, coating my hands as I tried to apply pressure. I looked up into the dark eyes of the boy asking me the question.
I had been so kind to this boy. I'd smiled at him just yesterday and said good morning. He'd nodded and reciprocated the smile. We were practically friends by Columbine standards. I looked to the boy standing beside him and frowned. I was also kind to him. I didn't get it. Why were they doing this? Why were they hurting us when we'd done nothing to them? I'd only ever been nice, but maybe that was the problem.
I swallowed the lump in my throat and looked at Richard. He was sitting against the building, his hands locked in prayer. His lips moved swiftly and I could tell he was sending one last message u

He stared at those trashcans across the ally, mind snapping back to the times he used them as shelter against the cold hate of the outside world. He was 17, now. He didn't need to hide anymore. He knew how to fight. He let out a sigh, bored to death.That Damn Smile3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Wade stood up, pulling his red hoodie over his head, shoving his hands in his jean pockets as he turned onto the sidewalk. He glanced at the watch he stole a few weeks ago. It was around four-thirty. Cool. Sidewalks will be nice and busy. No one will notice him. He carefully pushed through the crowds, avoiding the busy folk trying to head home or wherever the hell they needed to be; he didn't care. He turned a quick corner and onto a less busy street, hoping to get away from all the people when a sudden shorter body plowed into him, knocking them both down. And of course, Wilson had to go and scrape his pa

The swordsman stood predictably voiceless.
"Ah don't tell me you can't stand a little outdoors stench either," Tunnel Rat bemoaned. Not too long ago, he'd actually been 'politely' asked to find somewhere to shower before even thinking of boarding the Coyote. It didn't smell that bad.
Receiving a small shake of the head, the shorter man wondered why Snake Eyes was blocking his way into the the truck. He obviously wanted something, but gave no indication as to what, and of course didn't say a single word either.
"So you can't say, like, anything, right?"
A curt nod.
"Is that by choice, or did you take some grievous wound to the throat?"

Caught by a Cobra
It was over. The Joes had lost the war against Cobra and their base was taken over by the end of the first day. Most of the troops had been captured, and some had been scattered to the winds. Snake Eyes was one of the few that hadn't been caught yet, but living on the run was certainly no fun for the black clad ninja. The last few months had been sheer hell, running from cave to cave in the higher mountains of the Rockies. He had to keep moving though, never staying in the same cave for more than a night. The lower mountains were crawling with Cobra operatives, and even setting a foot outside of the caves during daylight hours was going to get him captured just like the others.

"Cato!" Clove screeches, "Cato!"
"Clove!" I yell back to let her know I heard her and I'm coming. I turn towards her sound and start sprinting. I was hunting Thresh, as we planned but lost him deep in the woods, far away from the Cornucopia. My legs are moving as quickly as they can. Trees whiz by me as I concentrate on my set location trying to move faster. The screeching has stopped but the cannon hasn't sounded yet. There's still a chance I'll make it to her in time.
I hop through the line of trees surrounding the field where it all began. I see her on the ground, "Clove!" I run over to her body lying limply on the ground. I reach my hands to her head to place it on my lap, and I feel the dent.
"Clove," I repeat. The tears start to fall from my eyes landing on her pale skin.
"Ca-Cato," she manages to say. She's having trouble with her speech, Thresh has injured her brain, but her memory is still there, at least for now.

"I wish we'd have more time to talk, but stay alive," I heard Reyna mumble into Jason's ear. And he nodded slightly, suppressing a smile.
"Well I'd certainly stay with you, but Jason would kill me," the boy named Leo interrupted.
Reyna shuck her head, but grinned at him.
"He only goes for girls way out of his league," the pretty girl with the kaleidoscope eyes joked. She hadn't introduced herself. Not that I could complain. I hadn't either.
Percy came up, now wearing normal clothes, instead of his toga.
"We should get going, we're already behind schedule," Annabeth and he said at the same time. I couldn't help, but smile at Annabeth. In less than an hour I'd been able to communicate better with her than I had with any other girl.

Annabeth reached for the ladder and started to climb. When she was halfway, Percy followed. Leo reached for the ladder now too, but then he saw me, made a cute grin and said: "Ladies first".

Percy and Annabeth REUNITED "Is that--" Annabeth broke off, stumbling as she walked forward a bit. Piper turned to see what she was staring at in such awe. There was a black-haired boy in a Roman toga about 20 feet away, with an identical expression of awe. The only difference was that the boy was also wearing a lopsided grin on his face, and he suddenly burst into a run, directly toward Annabeth.Percy and Annabeth REUNITED3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Annabeth, seeming to break out of a trance, sprinted forward to meet him as she sprung right into his arms. His arms wrapped tight around her, as if he would never, ever, let her go again. Percy Jackson. She decided to give them a bit of privacy and turned toward Jason, to find a dark-haired girl kissing her boyfriend passionately.
"I thought--I thought...that maybe...you would've forgotten me." Annabeth whispered, barely breathing the words. She was shivering. Percy's arms wrapped around her tighter, becoming vise-like. He pulled back to look at her, his arms still around her.
Mark of Athena Chapter 5It wasn't as though Annabeth hadn't met gods before; she'd talked to a great many thanks to Percy. She'd gotten fast food from Ares, visited mount Olympus during the counsel of the gods, had the goddess of wisdom as her mother, and Lady Artemis herself had wanted her to join the Hunters. Heck, she was even the main architect for Olympus after the war and the most powerful goddess hated her, not that she was complaining.

"Hey," he said coming up behind her. "Why aren't you inside partying with all the others?"
Annabeth glanced over her shoulder and shrugged. Her hands fiddled with the beads on her necklace. "I don't know. Just needed to think I guess."
Percy shook his head. "We win a war and you want to sit out here and think." It was just so Annabeth.
She turned and punched him in the shoulder. "Shut up, Seaweed Brain."
He smiled and lifted one of her hands off her necklace, threading their fingers together. "Well I think the amazing Miss Chase deserves at least one victory dance of the night."

Percy rolled his eyes. "We're dancing," he pulled her close. "Even if you don't want to."

He felt as though he had walked into a forge of Hephaestus, with all the godly technology and high maintenance equipment surrounding him. He might've been inclined to sneak in further had he not caught sight of a kid his age coming out of the fire, covered in grease and sweat yet otherwise unharmed. The boy looked like a Mexican elf without the pointed ears. Under different circumstances, Percy guessed that the kid was a lot happier, what with the smile lines etched permanently into his skin. His deep brown hair was wavy and long like a Hollywood actor's, his eyes holding their own fire in them.

Draco Malfoy lifted a slender finger to point at the contents of his girlfriend's ceramic bowl that held a mysterious, slimy...thing.
Hermione giggled slightly at Draco's silliness.
Draco had just gotten up and trudged down the stairs to the shared Heads common room. Hermione and he had been dating for about a year now. At first, neither of their friends had been exactly happy, but as time passed, they learnt to accept that there was nothing that they could do to stop them anyway. They just loved each other too much.
To the dismay of Pansy and Ron.
Currently, Hermione was sitting near the coffee table eating her breakfast which consisted of milk and cereal, a tomato, a greek honey yogurt and an unidentifiable...canary yellow, sloppy mess in a bowl.
"Good morning to you as well." Hermione said sacastically. "Malfoy, first of all, as Head Boy and as a Malfoy, you should have proper manners. Most people greet each other in the morning."
Draco just simply scowled at this.
