Hello everyone. This is my first attempt at both a humor and an Avatar fic, so please bear with me. This will be multi chaptered.
Disclaimer: I do not own Avatar. If possession were ever fall to me… Let's just say Sokka would have a couple of male stalkers. The official sounding definition of Mary Sues comes from Wikipedia.
Chapter One- Naming Your Mary Sue
Sokka walks into a room, coming to stand in front of a chalk board. Over his normal clothing, he wears Zuko's robe from before his ship exploded, and what appears to be Teo's goggles. All in all, it's a very cute attempt of him trying to look like a professor.
Clearing his throat, he picks up a piece of chalk.
"Today we are going to talk about the dreaded cancer of Avatar fanfiction." He paused to scribble something on the chalkboard. "That's right. We are going to talk about:" Sokka steps away from the board the reveal the words, "Mary Sues."
Adjusting his (Teo's) goggles, he picks up a book

Mrs. Knight daintily stepped onto the cold marble tile, making her way to the family room which occupied the majority of the space downstairs. Her socks made little patting noises as she walked over and settled into burgundy couch, the soft cushions enveloping her weight. Kendall crawled up the side of the couch, plopping down next to his mother. The two sat in silence, listening to Katie suckle at the rubber nib of the plastic bottle, greedily sucking down the formula that she so desired.
"I think we figured out what she was screaming about looks like she was just hungry." Kendall nodded in agreement at his mother's statement,
"Very hungry." She chuckled good-naturedly, ruffling the wispy blonde bangs belonging to her son,
"You knew exactly how to calm her down. How'd you get so smart Kendall?" He blushed, shrugging,
"I just knew." A wide smile broke out across Mrs. Knight's face,
"You're doing a great job;

The soles of the seven year old boy stretched, pushing the weight of the small child onto his tiptoes as he peered down into the crib. His light green eyes absorbed the scene before him- a tiny bundle moved in twisted and knobby motions, disrupting the surface of the soft pink blanket covering the baby who was screaming, her face bright right and contorted due to the effort. The toddler continued to study the form resting in the pillows, his thick eyebrows knotting in discomfort as he watched trails of tears seep out of the corner of his baby sister's eyes as she continued to bawl. Without thinking, he allowed his hand to reach over the side of the crib and make contact with her bootie-encased toes, tickling the wrapped feet. This action elicited a squeal and more thrashing, causing Kendall to wince yet again at the piecing noise, hardly believing that such a frail thing could be so loud.
"C'mon Katie Kat, don't cry." He tried to s

Disclamier: This text was based on Mary-Sue Litmus Test . All questions are gleaned from it and what I consider makes a Mary-sue. Im not attacking anybody with this test. Its simply an experiment that Im doing. Even my own characters are going to be put to this test.
This is simply a listing of clichés that are more often used to describe MSs and GSs. By no means should you use this guide to determine if your character is a MS or GS. This guide is meant to help authors to recognize stale, clichéd characters and stories, so that they can turn them into well-rounded characters and stories.
Of course having some of these traits does not make your character an MS/GS. Many fanfics that Ive read have had characters with many of the characteristics listed, but were well written and enjoyable to read a

"A Confession of Love"
Sei- The gentle voice was cut off. The scene seemed almost perfect. It was pictured beautifully.
Shhh, dont speak. And once more there was silence. The young man pressed against the young ladys lips after what seemed like an eternity of waiting. Oh how sweet they were, he had wondered for so long of their taste.
Cherry blossoms fluttered down upon the couple and brushed against the young ladys face as it deepened in shades of red, becoming the colors of the setting sun before them. She started to struggle, moving away from the young man. He grabbed her arms and pressed in closer, not wanting to let go. He wanted to hold on to this moment forever.
She tried to move away again, but the pull from the young man was too strong. He refused to let go, he must make this last as long as he can. The young lady began to shake under his body weight and fell onto her back taking the young man with her. T

Before note: Though this is a PewDiePie fanfiction, I made it so hopefully some non-fans could understand. Also, the first few chapters will eventually be corrected to follow the storyline, since I didn't plan everything before writing. Now that I do, there are few inconsistencies, so if you decide to read on, please understand that I'm going to try to correct them if you point them out. Enjoy!
“I’ll name him… Stephano. Come on, Stephano!”
At the time, it was a simple phrase, a one-liner to pique the interest of the easily attracted viewers. But to him, it meant the world.
The night sky was a black wormhole sprinkled with luminescent twinkling, shining brightly in the Italian town. Bedroom set to match, the monitor shined blindingly in contrast, the blinking letters and numbers faded into the white background. He shouldn’t have waited so late to upload his videos, and he was tired to boot.

It was a scorching hot summer day; no different from any of the other hot ones Tokyo had been getting this year. A young girl of the age sixteen was awake on her cool bedroom floor. Her name was Tsukino Usagi.
"Urg!" She rolled over on her floor with her legs and arms spread open. "I feel like an egg in a frying pan!" Her long golden locks were pulled back into two buns on top of her head, but the hair which fell from them were no where to be found. She closed her eyes to block out the sunlight trying to slip into a quiet slumber. There was no sound to be heard, not even the most gentle breeze dared show it's face in this heat.
"Ahhh!" Usagi jumped up and whipped the sweat off her face. She crawled over to her little pink table in the middle of the room. Leaning against it with her head against her shoulder. "To

Well, I figured that since Spongebob- Proof Of Spandy was so popular that I would do something that's different but also the same. I've written a little mini rant/opinions on an issue that isn't nearly as annoying as it used to be but it's still suck around for a quite a while everywhere I've been (Ex. DevArt, Fanfiction Net, LiveJournal). So, hope you can all enjoy and leave whatever comments you feel necessary. I would love to hear your opinions.
First I shall address Mary-Sues. Here's the five bad points of a Mary-Sue:
The name is only a slight problem. As in, it's not really one to be too concerned about but it is something that could give a good character a bad image. A name such as 'Melony Butterfly Lily DeeDee Silver Jay Hannah Rose, Melony Rose for short' is not going to give anyone a pretty image of your character and people will get tired just by trying to sa

The wind ruffled his hair as he stood at the top of a hill, looking out over the rolling green hills that were covered in neat rows of white stone markers. Trees in the distance provided shade for the others who had also chosen this location, this particular place, to remember the sacrifices made by others in order to protect the land and the people who called it home. Quiet music drifted through the air, echoing softly as if played by a long-gone orchestra.
America…America…God shed His grace on thee…and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea…
By each marker, a small American flag stood proud, blowing slightly in the breeze, accompanied by flowers and other trinkets to show love and gratitude for the soldiers buried below. With his head held high, Alfred F. Jones, the United Sta
