Mary Sue

Mary Sue

A Story by Clifford
"

Please don't invite Mary to your story.

"
Mary is perfect. She's tall. Blonde. Her skin is flawless and snow white and she has eyes like pale blue orbs. And, ho boy, those double d's are something to write home about! She's beautiful, sexy, and exotic. She's tall, and her hips sway in a mesmerizing way with each step she takes.
Aside from her physical stunningness, she has a heart of gold (not literally, but let's not forget that she's rich too!). She donates to charity, cares about everyone she met, and goes to church every Sunday. She and the G-Man are tight.
Of course, she doesn't realize any of this. That's right, folks, our beloved Mary is humble. She knows she tries her best, and she likes to think she's a good person, but she doesn't realize how much of a literal embodiment of a goddess she is. She looks up to her family and friends, but she doesn't know they also look up to her.
Her modesty may come from her scar (that, obviously, in no way detracted from her physical beauty; if anything, it makes her look mysterious). It's a small, silver scar that runs from below her eye to her cheekbone. She got it when she saved a purebred Persian cat from a burning building on top of a mountain during an earthquake while it was raining while a mass murder/rapist chased her with a chainsaw, and she had to walk uphill both ways. Anyway, a beam fell on her head. It should have been fatal, but she got lucky; it didn't even mess up her hair.
No problem is an obstacle for her. She faces trials with a confident smile and a carefree demeanor. She could have any man she wanted (she even converted a few gays), and she found her perfect match: Gary Stue.
She is flawless. She is perfect. She is Mary Sue.

Author's Note

Clifford
Mary Sue: A literary trope where a character is too perfect. The character may sound cool (and oh boy, wouldn't we like to meet her), but reading about a perfect character gets old in a hurry.

Clifford,
The first part of your story makes a grown man cry because she may be real. The second part makes a grown man cry because she is not real!
Peace,

Not going to lie, I write a Mary sue every now and then but truth be told perfection in one solitary individual makes it cringe worthy.

No worries!
I love you for this! I can't tell you how much I barf when I read something with a character of perfection! It's my number one gripe of many stories. Your sarcasm is dripping here in the most delicious way. Every time I think you've just written the funniest tongue-in-cheek slop, you double your efforts in the next paragraph . . . culminating, of course, in the kitty rescue which begs something that far exceeds "over the top" as kudos! I love this. It is so much more fun than reading one of these over-wound-up rants by some grammar or poetry police! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks! I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy her company.
Hahaha. The embodiment of perfection this young lady!

To good to be true? Who knows! Such wonderful detailed description of all the perfect facets of this goddess like specimen. And i certainly had a chuckle over her cat saving heroics!

Perhaps underneath all of this perfection there lies a beast waiting patiently for just the right moment to unleash its hell on the Earth.

A very enjoyable write, Clifford. It does make one think of what sinister intent may lie beneath. Well Done.
