(I, like maba, am also fond of this bio. I'll keep it because it's always been here- Hermy)
Hello, my pets! And welcome to PhantomSues, where just about every day is an adventure. And sometimes only a few times a week. I am the Ghost Master, lord of all things ghostly and ficly...ficcy...fic-sy? Literary! Ahem!
Do you often find that you cringe when reading a story because your gentle author's original character is too painful to behold? Well, I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is, it's not just you. That perfect and beautiful creature is called a Mary Sue. It will disrupt the canon universe, cause everyone to act completely out of character, and totally ruin a good story for anyone who is pretty much not the author.
Sorry? Oh, the good news? Yes! I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico! *ducks rotten fruit*
But seriously, my pets. Mary Sues aren't necessarily a bad thing as long as they're kept inside our heads. They're a valuable learning tool on the road to becoming a writer, and even professional fanficcers like myself still use them regularly. They just never see the cyber-based light of an internet day. The problem, of course, lies in the fact that so many beginning authors think they're being original and clever and, well, they aren't. Unable to tolerate another poorly spelled word, a handful of brave readers and writers set about to build a community to discuss their mutual disgust in private. That community is marysues, and my humble little journal is based off of these proud patrons.
Hm? Why, yes! I am pompous and egotistical! Why do you ask?
On a side-note, I will no longer be editing past reports at the author's request no matter the reason, unless it was an error of my own making. Such a thing is too much like censorship, and while I have done so to be nice, it makes me feel like a sellout. I do apologize.
The Ghost Master is:
You are Dea dubiosa, the Goddess Sue. All the power of heaven and earth is at your command, which doesn't stop you from throwing tantrums, or explain why we've never heard of you before. Take this quiz!
