My Sylvia (from a story I haven't actually written yet) got a 17, I think almost entirely due to the fact that she was specifically created to be Al's girlfriend. Her only redeeming quality was that she doesn't actually DO anything else in the story (which will be primarily EdxWin).

Nifty test. I'll need to run several of my original fiction characters through the strainer, though hopefully they'll come out as balanced as I originally perscribed them. There's one guy who's special ability could throw off his score slightly, but I'm not going to worry about that till I see it.

Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I don't think I took it right.

I ran one of my characters from a long abandoned fanfic through it and got a 75. There was a lot on there that didn't apply to her so I actually checked very few boxes which is why I'm so suprised she got a 75.

Oddly expected. I ran one of my central villains through, endgame score of 50. Uncharacteristically high, but given that any kind of prowess seems to be points in the Mary-Sue columb...see, the problem is that the character in question has regenerative properties, and considering no one else in the story has anything close to that, it does quite literally place him head and shoulders above everyone else.

Also gave one of the "Good guys" a spin, and wound up with 30. Accurate, I suppose, but unfair.

I suppose this test is worth it's salt, but since any sort of tragedy or skill seems only to "Improve" your score, I'm calling a foul on this one.

Ran another villain through. Score was 24-26. Again, accurate, but rather a rather unfair platform to denounce him from.

To balance it out, I tried another of the heroes (well, technically heroine), and chalked up 21. "For an RPG or original fiction character, however, you should still be within a safe level."

Wow. My OC only got a 2. That's surprising. But the character is based on one of my friends. And I guess the fact that I'm planning on having her die at the end brought down the score.

My character got a 2. Only because I see him as an attractive person and he has all the money he needs because he actually has a job and doesn't want many things. mellow.gif

O_O 51 points...

I thought it wouldn't be that much!

Heck, he isn't Mary Sue type at all... Just guy, who is kind of afraid of women, can't really fight in any kind of situation (unless it is verbal...), don't have freaky powers, weapons or pets! He has normal family even! What makes him Mary Sue?!

Edit: w00t! My original character nro. 2 got only 41 points! But he isn't Mary Sueish either... *pouts* Me is not happy...

*grins* Wow, I feel proud. I managed to create an original character who ends up MARRIED to a canon character, and yet who has a total Sue score of only 23.

(24, if you count the fact that she speaks two languages fluently, but for heaven's sake she's a German woman from the 1920's, she'd be more abnormal if she spoke only German. Incidentally, she amassed six points total just for the fact that she married him--the test is strict. XD)

Oh, and incidentally, I took the test for Edward Elric as an Original Fiction character....and his score was 48. Maverick tactics, disregard for authority, essentially orphaned, joined the military at abnormally young age, unusually good fighter and user of special powers among the best in his world, on the villains' Most Wanted list......whoops, Arakawa. happy.gif Don't worry, we still love him.

She remembers the way her inexplicably riveted gaze slid unbidden
down the curves of his back, slowly, like honey. And she particularly remembers
the rush of prickly heat, the unfamiliar melting sensation that made her duck
her head to hide a blush that caught her entirely by surprise; as she realized
for the first time, in an entirely new way, that Ed was a

Same thing with my Anna, Hidden Light... That and there were very few questions that would deduct points... If there were more of those I'm sure Anna would've been under 21... (She has a lot of faults.)

Ha!

Decided to look into the common-held belief that Alucard (of Hellsing fame) is a cannon-sue. The verdict?

110 points.

I got 16 for my as-yet-unwritten OC character Pernelle Tachibana. So I think she is safe because her main interest lies in killing homunculi. Which she will do in a spectacularly bloody fashion. Once I get around to writing the story...
