Nihilio Posted October 15, 2007 Share Posted October 15, 2007 , sometimes shortened simply to Sue, is a pejorative term used to describe a fictional character, either male or female (though male characters are often dubbed "Larry Stu" or some other rhyming male name), that exhibits some or most of the clichés common in fan fiction, particularly if the character is unsympathetic to the reader. Characters were originally labeled as "Mary Sues" for being portrayed in an overly idealized way and lacking noteworthy or realistic flaws. The definition today has widened considerably to encompass most clichés found in fiction — such as having a tragic past — and especially that the character in question acts as a wish-fulfillment fantasy for the author who created it. These authors are sometimes referred to as Suethors, a portmanteau of "Sue" and "author," though this usage is not universal within the fan fiction community.

(o χαρακτήρας που δοκίμασα, ονόματι Αύγουστος Μπρόντλεϋ, έβγαλε ένα ωραιότατο 57, κατατάσσοντάς τον πέρα από τα όρια του εμετικού Larry Stu...)
