Welcome to Suedomy, ladies and gents.
This community is first and foremost about bitch-slapping Mary Sue and castrating Gary Stu, yet some individuals don’t seem to know who they are. Wikipedia offers a detailed description of the various Sue arch-types, and Urbandictionary.com offers a neatly simplified version thereof.
Now that we all know who and what we’re dissing, we might as well start off with a little discussion.
Which “famous” Sues annoy you the most? Where do we find them? Who are the perpetrators/authors?
Or are there maybe some Sues you actually like? Actually care about?
Well. I can give you one example of a Sue that drives me nuts.
Terry Goodkind aka Richard Rahl!
Yes. Seldom have I come across such perfect fodder for Sue’diss’m!
Author and protagonist don’t only sound the same, but look the same, too. Absolutely beautiful!
The backcountry dolt turns into an all-knowing king and wizard… yes. Yet again. He is dashing, handsome, and loved by all… excluding some readers who are not overly fond of Sues.
Have fun discussing!
