Dec 1973 to Dec 2013 marks 40 years of Mary Sue! I encourage any celebration, except character bashing. I will not tolerate that.

Just have fun and create what ever you like this month, nothing can stop you! This should be a time of exploration and exaggeration, of fun and amusement. So, let the party begin!

(I claim no ownership of the Mary Sue drawing, just putting the image together. This is what the original Mary Sue looks like, and I, for one, want people to remember the original truth rather than continuing on with whatever crazy and backwards notions have taken over these last few years.)

Nothing too striking about the appearance there.

Characters that just have appearances that are incompatible with that canon should have a more accurate and precise term. In the game modding community, a character with such an out of place appearance is called "not lore friendly".

Not to toot my own horn but relevant comments I've made earlier:

I'll save my long rants for later.

Let's keep promote and keep a simple definition alive rather than expanding on it! Can you imagine if we had such a vague term for the weather?

I may be straying a bit from the original, but it would be nice if it meant something along the lines of, "An over-idealized character with an inappropriately large role in the story."

If anything is unclear, I'll clarify it.
