Oh man, I see people whose characters have uber transmutation circles and awesome battle skills with lower scores than my poor nerdy old Henry. All right all right, being Ed's kid doesn't exactly lower the score, nor do good looks strongly contrasting with the general automail geekness, nor does a quite unjustifiable sociability for someone who supposedly spends most of his time locked up in the attic revolutionising cables... right.*headdesks* I'll just go back to the manga chapter discussion, where you're kinda expected to narratively run amiss T_T
By the way, thank you everybody who ran Ed through the test, I was cursing the poor chibi all the way through the weapons section. And for anyone whose canon-family-related-OC got less than 25, the tea/coffee/beer is on me.

wow!! scary test!! my OC for my first FMA char (which I'm writing now) has a 21, then my OC char for Stargate:Atlantis fanfic got a 32! Gah!! I thought she was more realistic!! Oh, well. My original people from a script I'm writing got a 26, and 41!!! :cries:
Oh well, but can anyone really say that they're fav. char from a TV show/anime/manga/video game/book/etc. isn't a Mary-Sue as well?? They're not perfect!

Hehe, I just took the Mary-Sue test for Jacob and Emily Tucker ( those who have read my fanfic Alternative Choice will know who they are; Shou Tucker's parents)
For Shou's fan-created father...I ran him through the test answering as honestly as possible and Jacob got a 14! - The anti-Sue...or rather Stu ^^; Shou's fan-created mother was ran through the test too and Emily got a 17.
Becca-chan; Your local Tucker addict...I am 100% sane, I swear! O.O;

Well I tested my OC for an original fiction and she got a 15. The thing is while I think this test is a good idea, I feel as though it might not be completely accurate. I mean seriously, who would honestly make a character mentally retarded with absolutely nothing to make up for it? And who would honestly give there character a fear that they could never overcome? That just doesn't make sense in my opinion.
