This stamp was made because I am so sick and tired of people looking at characters that are powerful or that have been used over a long period of time and calling them Mary Sue solely because they are powerful or have a bunch of stuff going on in their history/life. Yes, sure, they have the potential to be... so does EVERYTHING ELSE! Don't just assume something because you're too lazy to learn why the character is powerful or to learn about the character's history.
I have an RP character that I've been playing for something like a DECADE so umm YES, her history/life/personality/etc are going to have a lot of crap going on. But, the fact that every single aspect of her being, including her birth, has been role played out thoroughly doesn't seem to matter much to these people. They just want to look at one simple thing and act all superior when they are plainly showing their ignorance.
I also just "adore" how these people come across one of these characters and pick out all these little bits of info and lace them together to "prove" that she is a Mary Sue. Bit of truth for ya: ANYTHING can sound Mary Sue when you do that. If I went and said: "long brown/black wavy hair down to the middle of her back, pretty but not gorgeous, tall with a nice figure and long legs, eyes that are both brown and green, intelligent in several fields, shy but has a large group of friends and is good with people, rarely gets into trouble but has had a highly troubled past etc, etc..." yeah, starting to sound pretty bad all bunched up together like that now isn't it?
Never mind that I am talking about MYSELF here (go ahead call me a Sue, I dare you xD). Never mind that I do indeed have long wavy hair (YES, it is naturally brown and black!) and look pretty, etc because I actually maintain myself. Never mind my eyes ARE both brown and green (central heterochromia, NOT hazel!). Never mind that I am intelligent in several fields because I actually read and do research ALL THE TIME. Never mind that I do have a lot of friends, even though I am shy, because SHOCK! I'm actually a likable person, which makes me very good with people. And, never mind that I rarely get into trouble because SHOCK AGAIN! I don't (usually hehe) go looking for it, even though my past has been a dark one.
See? Description, details, reasons, actually knowing what the heck you're talking about DOES matter! Until you can get that through your thick head, yes, I am going to completely ignore your so called "critiques." I don't take advice from ignorant people.
