Wish Fulfillment? Mary Sue Quiz
Ever since I first heard about the term Mary-Sue in relation to writers and wish fulfillment, I have in the back of my head worried that I might have done that very thing with a main character in Heroes of the Fallen.
In any case even though I know I am going to put that particular character through HELL a part of me still wondered IF I might be Mary-Sueing it. I wonder because so many of my characters whether small or big, good or evil or in between (most everyone) have that aspect of me, their creator or perhaps even better their interpreter inside them. So have I Mary-Sued my favorites?
Here is a quiz to tell you-its pretty dang good, very concise in that there is no getting around a possible favouritism/wish fulfilment. I found most of the questions hilarious-because they're true.
And I am very pleased to say that I scored a lowly 12 on behalf of Amaron. Tell me what ya'll get for your main characters---if you dare.
