Forgive me Father..for I have sinned this is my first confession:
Story Or Series Title: Agony and Empathy (I can't believe I called it that...)
Fandom: Pirates of the Caribbean
Culprit Author's Name: Hafae aka Hufflepuffer242 (me)

Full Name (plus titles if any): Ex-Commodore James Norrington and Ex-Commodore James Norrington (*weeps* It was a parallel story, 2 in 1.)
Full Species(es): Angstus depressionist
Hair Color (include adjectives): Not mentioned, thank God
Eye Color (include adjectives): Also not mentioned
Unusual Markings/Colorations: None
Special Possessions (if any): On one end of the story, his depression and alcohol and on the other depressed Elizabeth as his wife.

Annoying Origin: Doesn't have one, he's from the movie.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: Side 1: The envious onlooker of Will and Elizabeth's wedding, leading to horrible drama and angst. Side 2: The Husband of depressed Elizabeth (Will died), which also leads to horrible drama and angst.
Annoying Special Abilities: Both develop the ability to remember each other's memories until they realize that the AUs are going to be destroyed unless they both die. (Oh my, that is really bad isn't it... I'm so ashamed. At least I only had one chapter done before I realized the Stu.)
Other Annoying Traits: The ability to angst in epic proportions with many nasty consequences. (One of them being Elizabeth almost killing herself.)

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.: Don't have one. I only got 1 chapter done before I stopped.

Excuses?: I really wanted to write a PotC story with Norrington where he wasn't evil or mean. Somehow he just ended up being an emo Stu who angsts way too much and ends up dieing a horrifically romanticized death. I weep for my mistake.

I need a better default
Forgive me Father..for I have sinned this is my first confession (from here, at least):
Story Or Series Title: It's actually a series of RPs, the general names being K-RPG.
Fandom: ...Mario games. Yes. THAT Mario. Other fandoms DO sneak in, but that's what the RP was originally based on.
Culprit Author's Name: A-chana

Full Name (plus titles if any): Tsunami Abigail Minako, (ex-)princess of a made-up kingdom and current captain of an entire squad (made up by a different player). Nicknames: Tsu' (by most characters), Boobs-a-Poppin' (by characters who are teasing her), Experiment 369 (by one character that'll be introduced later)
Full Species(es): Half-human, half-Paragoomba (my half-assed attempt to 'fit in' with the universe)
Hair Color (include adjectives): Black, with a shiny white streak in it. Once described as 'osbidian' and occasionally 'raven'.
Eye Color (include adjectives): Sky blue. At least it's not endless pools of sapphire. But a later event will make her eyes glow green. So yeah.
Unusual Markings/Colorations: Pale skin, once described as 'alabaster'.
Special Possessions (if any): Used to have a magical sapphire that let her use magic, and a hammer she used to attack with. Both items have never been mentioned past the first RP. WIll eventually receive five phoenix feathers, which will play a huge role in the plot.

Annoying Origin: Born from Sasako, said made-up kingdom. Mother, Queen Mia, was raped while drunk by a Paragoomba (name currently a secret). Tsunami was one half of the unholy result (the other half was her sister, but I won't get into that). Fast-forward thirteen years. Insert Tsunami-Sue into the RP.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: At first, she was to become Goomabrio's girlfriend. However, I grew out of that fast, and they only ended up being tenth-cousins and best friends.
Annoying Special Abilities: Initial powers were a magic shield made of hearts and the ability to make small explosions, both of which she eventually lost. Then she gained pyrokinesis, with the occasional misc. spell and, more recently, dark magic.
Other Annoying Traits: WINGS!!1 Aside from her wings and ability to fly, she's a ditz with a short fuse, and yet tends to go emo over the littlest things.

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.:

Read more...Collapse )

Excuses?: I made her when I was just 12; I am now 16. She's grown into a more believable character, but she still has too many BAD faults. She scored 53 on the Original Mary Sue Litmus Test, if that gives you any idea- and I think I might've skipped a couple questions. She's more acceptable now, but when I think of her past...kill it---!

Sometimes, I feel sorry for her boyfriend (note that the relationship isn't completely like a Sue relationship, other than her occasional emoing that makes her boyfriend have to comfort her; it wasn't twu luv at first sight, and while she's on the verge of mental breakdowns from stress and self-blame, he's on the verge of mental breakdowns from stress and drugs. It's more complex than that, at least for him.).

And a random note, my icon features Tsunami (on the right) and her boyfriend, in a cutesy style that only MSPaint and no writing tablets could bring.

Forgive me Father..for I have sinned this is my first confession:

Story Or Series Title: The Planet Witchera (oh so unique...NOT!!)
Fandom: Star Trek: Next generation (yes you read correctly)
Culprit Author's Name: Just Lucy

Full Name (plus titles if any): Princess Chantal
Full Species(es): Perfect Princess Witch (or Perfect Sue)
Hair Color (include adjectives): Long, dark glossy brunette
Eye Color (include adjectives): Brown but changes to hazel
Unusual Markings/Colorations: None
Special Possessions (if any): She posseses the Princess staff of Witchera and the Pink Witchera Crystal (speshfulness! >_<)

Annoying Origin: Is the daughter of Queen Chantelle of Witchera, a long line of female monarchs
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: Is the cousin of Q Junior, Niece to Q, best friends with Amanda, joins the Enterprise-E, falls in love with Wesley Crusher and is enemy to Robin Lefler (OMG I was so stupid so many friggin connections!)
Annoying Special Abilities: She can sing and dance like a famous idol, conjures up oh-so speshful magic
Other Annoying Traits: She dies at the hands of Princess Robin of the Supernatural Borg but is resurrected in a special ceremony done by the priests of Witchera (remind you of Spock anyone) and defeats Robin and her army of Supernatural Borg, in the end everyone celebrates her victory

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.: I deleted this story after i found out it was a Mary Sue i had created

Excuses?: Back in Yr 7 i was a huge Star Trek fan and loved the Next generation series, I was in love with Wesley Crusher and hated Robin Lefler with a passion. I self-inserted myself into the character that was Princess Chantal and made Robin evil to make me happy and get the boy i liked back then.
I want her to be an actual -believable- character...but alas, she was spur-of-the-moment and thus underdeveloped. :S Which is a shame, because my rp partner's characters are getting very attached to her (especially her "gentle giant" Descartes. ;_; I pity him.)

Forgive me Father..for I have sinned, this is my first confession:

Story Or Series Title: an extensive, months-long rp with my good friend Nightsail C.
Fandom: Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver
Culprit Author's Name: me. Arggh. >_<; I should have known -better- than this...

Full Name (plus titles if any): Ezren. Just Ezren. Thank God for small favors, eh?
Full Species(es): Hylden. But she wasn't banished with the others. That way she isn't all emaciated and scary! 8D (see special possessions for "reasoning")
Hair Color (include adjectives): Blond
Eye Color (include adjectives): Green
Unusual Markings/Colorations: She has WHITE FEATHERS on her wings. Hylden wings are normally batlike. Thankfully I fixed the reason she doesn't have the Hylden headcrest (sorta) by saying that it's a growing up thing...wwwwwtf
Special Possessions (if any): a pendant that keeps her immortal and that prevented her from experiencing the whole Hylden banishment thing *headdesk*

Annoying Origin: From her unmentioned mother's loins. >_<;
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: She's the HYLDEN GENERAL'S DAUGHTER. 'nuff said.
Annoying Special Abilities: Healing. zomgwtf. And flight.
Other Annoying Traits: The stereotypical Angelic Blond Child, except that the childlike behavior is really a front because after spending more than five millennia in a child's body, growing up mentally is "too hard and/or traumatic"

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.:
What is wrong with me...'elaborate movie script style meets former Ayenee mind slave' intro...and OMG the Jumanji flower vines of DOOM!Collapse )
...this character needs help. -_-; Thankfully she's gotten better, but not by much.

Excuses?: It was on the spur of the moment, and I was still horribly scarred from rping with another friend's Mary Sueish character. That and I read a lot of really bad fanfiction. :P *prays for the salvation of her char, and herself*

[dc] the wonder of flight
Forgive me Father...for I have sinned. This is my first confession:

Story Or Series Title: Experimental and Experimental: Revised (The latter being kind of a 2.0, and infinately better, but still badly sueish and overly done. I'm going to quote from the second for this.)
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts, primarily, though like most KH fics it had many, many, many crossover-worlds.
Culprit Author's Name: Back then, I was just Alana.

Storm Eagle
Forgive me Father..for I must have been an insane 13-year old have sinned this is my first confession:
Story Or Series Title: I was way too lazy to actually write the damn thing. That would mean actual effort. I mean, gawd.
Fandom: Sailor Moon, Harry Potter and Pokemon, but not all at once. It doesn’t make it any better, I know. At least she never kicked out Zechs as the 6th pilot.
Culprit Author's Name: Me. I have no idea what I called myself back then, but it probably had ‘-chan’ in it.

Full Name (plus titles if any): Kristal ‘Kris’ Tenshi. *headdesk*
Full Species(es): Human.
Hair Color (include adjectives): Blue. With white streaks. Naturally. That went past her shoulders. Yeeeaah.
Eye Color (include adjectives): Blue.
Unusual Markings/Colorations: The hair. Oh, God, the hair.
Special Possessions (if any): An omggawth Sue friend named Owaru Shimau (what the hell was I thinking?!), my sister’s uber-stu Ryuu Silverstreak as a boyfriend and a not-so-secret admirer called Kanri Suru (KILL ME NOW). A Pidgeot and Sandshrew, possibly an Onix (death by Ice Beam!). A Hippogriff spotting book, wand, general Hogwarts crap. Henshin stick. I don’t think she had a guardian, which is just as well because it would probably have been a Meowth or something.

Annoying Origin: She just shows up and since she’s SO MUCH COOLER than the canon characters you never hear from them again.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: They no longer existed, except the Hogwarts teachers. *imagines an entire cast of sue and stu teachers and cries*
Annoying Special Abilities: She only had any in SM. She was Sailor Alpha, with Owaru as...wait for it...Sailor Omega! So original!
Other Annoying Traits: She’s a Ravenclaw despite not being noticeably smarter than anyone else. (Guess what my favourite house was/is?) She defiles the name of Pidgeot. She’s a bitch to Kanri for no reason. She never damn well did anything. Oh, and she didn’t capture her Pokemon – EVERY SINGLE ONE she EVER got she helped in some way first before they joined her out of free will. Kill me now.

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.:

As said before, I never actually wrote it. Which is a very, very good thing.


I was insane. I had to have been if I liked the stupid bitch, which I did. Insane. I’m better now, thankfully.
what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck???
Ugh I swear there was something wrong with me when I was 15 years old. I really want to slap myself on the head for making this piece of stupid crap story.... I really do not want compassion or crap like, "But you were only 15, you didn't know better."

Forgive me Father..for I have sinned this is my (number of confessions) confession: One mary-sue and one poor OOC teacher named Mr. Crocker.
Story Or Series Title: Crocker's Girl - Just the title should be enough to know that it's a Mary-Sue story.
Fandom: Fairly Odd Parents, Mr. Crocker.
Culprit Author's Name: Fairy1234, me basically.

Full Name (plus titles if any): Rose Tulip.
Full Species(es): Human.
Hair Color (include adjectives): Brown.
Eye Color (include adjectives): Emerald green.
Unusual Markings/Colorations: None I don't believe.
Special Possessions (if any): An engagement pen....

Annoying Origin: She was fired from an old job because she believes in Fairies.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: She's Crocker's wife.
Annoying Special Abilities: I think making Crocker OOC is really annoying for me and enough to make me puke and laugh at myself.
Other Annoying Traits: Being a damsel in distress in a couple chapters.

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.:
The Horror!!Collapse )

Maybe it was because I was 15 years old, maybe it was because I never even heard of a Mary-Sue at that time or maybe I was just being the dumb blonde bitch that I was. Yes I did delete the story so your poor innocent eyes won't be burned or melted (I'm also going to delete that revised vision too because it's a piece of crap). I should've been smacked and beaten upon years ago to even THINK of a character like this. Not to mention making my favorite Fairly Odd Parents character Mr. Crocker completely out of character really does make me cry and die a little bit inside. I can only hope that I will never do it again and if I do, someone will beat me in time hopefully. Bad Tracy, no bisquit for you.
mea culpa
I can't bear it any longer. I was writing a reply to a comment in saiyuki_badfics and one of her comments got me to remembering my own oddyseys in the happy land of irritating Gary Stus, and the character I created aged twelve whose existence rapes my brain, defiles my soul and leaves the Sue-hater and canon nazi I have become struck dumb with terror and loathing. Seriously, admitting to the creation of this Stu pains me.

I have to get this abomination off my chest, for I shall never be purged while I bear the stains of this sin.

Forgive me Father..for I have sinned this is my first confession:

Story Or Series Title: Ninety Stellar Warnings
Fandom: None. Thankfully, I kept this hideous little microbe in the so-called 'original' fiction I churned out by the yard at about this time. Doesn't stop him from being the Stu of All Time, though.
Culprit Author's Name: Me, going by the pen name 'lilith', and my co-culprit 'Nemesis'.

Full Name (plus titles if any): Yusaku ('Yuta') Ito. Yeah, there was a hideously contrived Suethor reason why he had two names, but it was really stupid and I honestly cannot remember it for the life of me, which is no bad thing.
Full Species(es): Puer mixta impossibilis crossbred with Puer angstia. And HIDEOUS GARY STU.
Hair Color (include adjectives): Black. It was overlong and basically looked a bit of a mess. A very early version of this character had a blonde streak in his fringe, but that kind of got forgotten when I shoved him into this story because it didn't look Goth enough. Sigh.
Eye Color (include adjectives): Oh my God, he had black eyes with slitted pupils. And in some lights they looked silver. Yup, all that and OCULAR SHIFTS. What the fuck was I thinking?!
Unusual Markings/Colorations: Okay. He was about five foot two, madly effeminate and Goth as sin, all pale skin, dark hair and hideous 'you don't understand me, nobody understands me, my life is a living Hell' wangst. He also had a series of utterly pointless 'marks' on his neck, wrists and thighs because I guess I didn't think he looked sparklypoo enough or something. No, I don't know what I thought I was doing either.
Special Possessions (if any): Ludicrously implausible back story of EXTREME wangst, Kinderwhore clothing, silver jewellery of some sort which was of course deeply significant though I have mercifully forgotten why, laptop PC, utterly useless twin brother because I hated the world and everything in it and wanted to make it SUFFER.

Annoying Origin: Oh, the time I spent working on this kid's back story, turning it into a horrible odyssey of angst and rape that made de Sade's Justine look restrained. He was the result of some bizarre interplanetary dalliance between a human woman and a super-speshul alien. After his family died, of course, during a convenient interplanetary war he was preyed upon by a succession of perverts and pedophiles, ending up working as a prostitute. Don't ask me how OLD he was at this stage, I've erased that from my mind and don't want to know (you'd think my co-author would have reined me in at this stage, but he had a regrettable thing for portraying children as sexual creatures which on cold reflection really, truly squicks me out). Eventually someone tried to kill him which was long overdue but unfortunately for humanity he was saved by the drippy girlfriend of my co-author's own annoying Stu, whose family ended up adopting him. He spent a suitably cool amount of time in his bedroom being a traumatized Stu - at least he'd gone silent rather than started sobbing on people's shoulders because he was so damned angsty - but sadly got over it and moved to Osaka with the drippy girlfriend, which was where our actual 'story' kicked in.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: Technically was one. But - and it's a big but - this aggravating sonofoabitch wasn't actually part of the Sailor Moon/Saint Seiya ripoff warrior team we created. Nope, he just sort of showed up and proceeded to take over despite being overall pretty useless as far as the actual PLOT went, because I was a complete idiot that way and let the spoilt little bastard run riot, being speshul beyond the call of duty, repeatedly saving the day in spite of being ultimately useless, getting involved in just about everything, wangsting at the slightest provocation over things that were obviously nothing to do with him and being abducted/injured/molested/raped/whatever every time the plot got slack, which meant far more times than I'd care to recall. I also hooked him up with the female lead, Rei - a rather more rounded character, if about five minutes from Mulier badasstica pseudofeminista but who, what with Yuta and my co-author's Stu, seldom got a word in edgeways - in spite of the fact he was a perfect example of the 'abused, traumatized uber-uke' type and possessed a past so torrid it would make Cunegonde positively jealous, in between letting him wrap the plot, such as it was, around his little finger. I hate this character.
Annoying Special Abilities: Oh, God. Yuta and his speshul powers of speshulness. I must have been INSANE. Just about anything I thought was cool or wished I could do myself this little bastard could do perfectly. Seriously. He was a computer genius, fluent in about five squillion languages, coruscatingly intelligent, a hideously gifted psychic with infallible precognitive powerz (he predicted the death of my co-author's Stu, who in true Stu fashion was incapable of bloody well STAYING dead: at least Yuta never came back from the dead) a kickass fighter and all the rest of it - so far so Suethor typical, I think he even played the fucking piano - despite the fact that there was no logical way a kid who'd spent most of his back story being beaten and abused could have ever got to grips with any of this. And God knows where I got the idea about him working in a drag bar in his free time from. I'm pretty sure he was due to end up Saving the World and Living Happily ever After. Oh, and he was fifteen years old. I hate this character.
Other Annoying Traits: He existed. I created this character and wrote about him and thought he was lyke, zOMG, KEWLEST CHARA EVAH. He was an aggravating Gary Stu and walking wangst factory who wandered round our hideous story acting like he owned the place, and... okay, you got me. Here comes the true confession - Yuta was, metaphorically speaking anyway, the hideous Gary Stu bastard child of Subaru Sumeragi and Rei Ayanami. *headdesk* *headdesk* *headdesk*

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story, placing it behind an LJ cut.:
I'm afraid I never put this stuff online. This is probably no bad thing as it was written script format; we planned to make a manga from this. Even as a self-deluded teenager I knew deep down that this story and the characters therein were complete shit and begged my co-author (whose own hideous self-insert Stu named - wait for it! - Julien-Paul Gordon MacGordon, more commonly known as 'Gai', was no better and for his own part utterly took over and raped a high-school series set some years after this thing by showing up as one of the teachers) not to show it to anyone. Anywhere. EVER. Hideously, my co-author is still trying to shape this fictional sow's ear into a silken purse - I guess he must be really attached to his Stu. I gave it up as utterly irredeemable cliché-ridden juvenile crap years back, though in the latest drafts I had at least smacked Yuta into some kind of shape by deforesting his wangst-jungle with a machete, restricting him to a supporting role and writing him as an emotionless, amoral bastard who was basically a walking weapon rather than a cliché wangsty-and-musunderstood teen.

I was thirteen years old and massively self-deluded, and at least some good came out of it... believe me, this story - or rather stories, we wrote screeds of this shit and had a veritable zoo of Sues and Stus by the end of it, though the later ones are nowhere near this hideous - had me running scared from OCs for absolutely years. At least I wasn't defiling anyone's actual fandom with this crap, even if the 'story' Yuta here ended up in was little more than a long series of ripoffs, taking Sailor Moon, Saint Seiya and Evangelion and making them into a regrettable horrible-cake of adolescent evil.

All I can say is: sorry?
