Stamp: Characters are children by Jammerlee Stamp: Characters are children by Jammerlee
As a writer, my characters are as real to me as any other living person. They were born from my mind, and I have nurtured them, watched them grow, and they have a startling way of surprising me with information about themselves I was never aware of, or doing and saying things I never expected. I am their mother and they are my children.

Original characters. Fan characters. Even semi-canons. They are all alive to me. I treat them as real people and give them all the same respect any living person deserves.

Are your characters that real to you?

I like my Sonic OC because i made him with my characteristics, not because i love him.
But is true some people forgot theyself for their OCs!
I'm not one of them!

Just my opinion, but if you began to see your characters as real people, especially Fan characters, then they began to turn into Mary-Sues.

I'm not sure I understand the logic behind that. Could you explain it to me please?

Sometimes people fall in love with their character, and they start thinking that the character is real. These people will bring their character up in any conversation. I'm fine with people caring about their character, and developing them, but not act like their characters are real.

I suppose that's a fair way of looking at it *lol* I can't say that I agree though as I see it a little bit differently. I feel that if you treat your characters as though they're real, that it'll project them as fleshed out and believable people in the story. If you treat them as puppets and cardboard, then puppets and cardboard they'll only be. Granted, I also feel that "mary-sue" is a very misused term that applies to many, many characters (I wrote about my feelings on that over here). I don't feel as though talking about a character a lot, for example, makes them a mary-sue - it just shows how much the creator cares for the creation. I feel a mary-sue is in their portrayal and how they command the story itself

Yeah, I hate it when everyone's like, "OMG Mary-Sue." at every OC they see with one trait of a Mary-Sue. And I mostly mean when someone acts like their OC in a fandom is actually part of the canon.
