Sue Stamp by Ame-Yuku Sue Stamp by Ame-Yuku
What better way to start off the new year than a shatty stamp? :iconohjoyplz:

It's just funny when people bitch about a character being a Mary Sue and then follow up by listing all of his/(usually) her flaws. Seriously, people. It's okay to hate a character for his/her faults. You don't have to whip out the Mary Sue card every. Single. Time.

Oh, and by funny I mean annoying. :B

EDIT 10/25/10: Wow. Never thought I'd says this, but PLEASE read this before fav/commenting! Thanks!
I personally don't like fan OCs (except for the whole "Make Your Own Hogwarts Student" or Organization XIII XIV Infinity kind of thing) period. If you make one, I'm not gonna be a total asshole and bash you about it because this is fandom and fandom is not srs bsns. It's a free internets, do what you want, haters gonna hate, etc.
Just saying this because I've noticed that a LOT of the people faving this stamp have fan OCs, which is perfectly fine. Thing is that I'm sure at least some of these people have had their characters' accused of being sues, and if that's the case? Um... You might want to take a good look at your fan OC. What are their strengths and weaknesses (if any)? Is their backstory completely over-the-top in terms of angst? Are they a canon character's love interest? Was it (God help us) Luv at Firstest Sightomg? Does the canon!verse have to bend over backwards to accommodate your OC? And (this is my personal deal-breaker, tbh) does this character cause canon characters to act completely OOC? If you answered yes to any of these, you may want to give the Mary Sue Litmus Test a go: [link]

But if not and the accuser's just being an ass, tell them to familiarize themselves with the left-hand evacuation procedure. (Google "Mark Reads HP" if you don't get that reference. It's kind of amazing.)

I made this stamp because I'm sick and tired of seeing any (canon) female character who has the audacity to be competent or interesting or pretty or assertive getting slapped with the "ZOMG MARY SUE" label, especially when male characters get away with the exact same shit. If you hate a character, that's fine. Have fun with that. Just don't start piling on bullshit reasons for your haterade.
