Page 3 of my silly Sherlock Holmes comic, in which the formidable adversary lays open her cards and boldly states her intentions. CAN YOU GUESS WHO THE MARY SUE IS IN THIS COMIC 8D I'll give you a hint, she's Russian, she looks vaguely like the idealized version of someone around here uploading art and writing a post right now guess guess guesssss

Joking aside, I have a very special place in my heart for the Mary-Sue character, because as a teenager (and hell, as a somewhat grown-up now, still) I Mary-Sued myself into every book and movie I loved. Every. Single. One. Lord of the Rings? I saved everyone in there and wore the One Ring like nobody's business (without being corrupted, obviously). Galadriel and I had tea on weekends and Lothlorien threw parades in my honor. In Star Wars I was this badass Jedi lady who was also secretly a Sith and worked with all the awesome people to bring balance to the Force. THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WEPT!! when I was wounded in the final battle and lay on what could well have been my deathbed (while always looking very attractive, of course). I'm not even going to start on all the good deeds I accomplished in The Chronicles of Pern, but suffice it to say that no dragon deaths ever happened on MY watch.
Oh and yes, Harry Potter. Ohhhh, Harry Potter... I think I even typed up some of that fanfic, instead of just imagining it. Now there's a piece of writing that will never see the light of day LOL

Long story short, Sherlock Holmes is up against a force that may be too much for even him. Because even his enemies are likely now in love with the magical Countess Potemkina and will do anything for her.

2 more pages left for the riveting conclusion, I will put them both up tomorrow! (Cover, character guide, page 1, page 2.)

Damn. I've been a Mary-Sue (guy version?) quite a few times. I was always the most powerful padawan in Star Wars thanks to my balanced knowledge of both light and dark sides, I was the runt in Pern who got the awesome white dragon, I was this awesome mutant for the X-men with the ability to copy powers, and I was even the boyfriend of the girl that Doctor Who picked up one time. Ah, the wibbley-wobbley!! Heck, because of my hand-held Pokemon games when I was little, I didn't have to be a Mary-Sue for that universe!!
On a side note, I'm liking how the story is turning out.

LOL!!!! I enjoy so much your comment! oh , the powers of a Mary Sue are fearsome! XD
so many of us have fallen on that at one time or another and even as we move ahead writing or drawing a little mary sue always pops its head like a defenseless tribble, just waiting for the moment to reproduce endlessly and take over.

You? A Mary-Sue insert? Noooo... Never would have thought it! No, I have never, ever done that in my entire history of fandom! JK. :XD:
But seriously, I was thinking the countess counted, but knew you had something up your sleeve... This is awesomeness.

This is just wonderful! Can't wait for more!

And thank you for not putting him in the deerstalker cap right off the bat. A gentleman would never wear that about town.

...I can be a bit of a Holmes snob sometimes...I admit it. ^^;;

a mary- REALLY?! *dies laughing* Ok, I didn't see that coming. XD

You mean I'm not the only one who does that?! :D I like to do the same thing and imagine myself into various fandoms and have adventures with all the characters...I am, of a course, a blatant Mary Sue in these situations but it's fun as heck. Fortunately I'd never, EVER let myself write it out xD
