  1. Get to Know the Newest Writers of The Mary Sue From Team Geekosystem

    We're from Starfleet Geekosystem! We don't lie!

    Now that the star system Geekosystem has officially joined the United Federation of Mary Sue, we thought you'd like to get to know some of the newest recruits a little better. Sure, you saw us all kicking butt and super-smashing in Leigh Lehav's amazing Merger Initiative video, but we also wrote a lot for our little geeky site, since it was kind of our job and all. Now we want to tell you all about ourselves and show you some of our favorite posts we've worked on.

  2. A Frank Discussion of Game of Thrones‘s Rape Scene And Its Epidemic of Sexual Violence

    The Mary Sue

    Since last Sunday, the Internet has been abuzz with talk of Game of Thrones' controversial rape scene. We touched on it in our recap and shared with you the responses of the scene's director, co-writer, and one of its actors, plus A Song of Ice and Fire scribe George R.R. Martin. But we hadn't written a post specifically on our personal thoughts on scene, because...well, because we have a lot of them. There's much to unpack about rape culture, storytelling tropes, and the responsibility of fiction. So Jill Pantozzi and Rebecca Pahle, along with Geekosystem's Victoria McNally, sat down to hash it all out. Below you'll find our uncensored discussion on the scene and why, specifically, it made us boil with seething, all-encompassing rage.

  3. The Mary Sue’s Favorite Posts of 2013

    Power Grid

    We've shown you the posts that got you clicking and talking in 2013, but now it's time to get biased. See, all of us here at The Mary Sue love writing for The Mary Sue in general, but there are some posts that we just love more than the others. Maybe something exciting happened. Maybe something disappointing happened and we relished the opportunity to write about it and discuss it with our readers. Maybe someone sent us superhero-themed sex toys. 2013 was a weird year.

  5. 10 Geeky Halloween Costumes For Inveterate Procrastinators

    Power Grid

    It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. You could always go buy something at the last minute, but the high prices for poorly made, mass-produced costumes aren’t for you. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.

  6. The Mary Sue’s 2013 Summer Movie Wrap-Up

    Power Grid

    This summer was a weird one. It felt, in a way, like were were still coming down from the high of The Avengers, the movie that ruled our hearts, minds, and wallets a single summer ago. On hand to catch us as we fell were some good movies, some bad movies, some movies that we weren't angry at, just disappointed, and one shining example of Oh please God, no, why did this movie happen?! We're taking a fond (or, in some cases, not-so-fond) look back at the summer of 2013's giant monsters, giant robots, giant stuffed rabbits, and the giant pile of wrongness that was a whole lot o' whitewashing. Whew. With the summer over, let's get ready for the end-of-year releases. More Hunger Games, Thor, and The Hobbit are right around the corner.

    Power Grid

    San Diego Comic-Con, kicking off tomorrow and running through this Sunday, is four days of condensed joyful, nerdy madness. None of The Mary Sue team will be attending the con (no one's sadder about it than us), but if we were to be magically whisked away to nerd Mecca, here are some—OK, a lot—of the panels we wish we could stand in line for hours to attend. You going to any of them? Feel free to drop us a comment telling us what we missed. Feel free to gloat a little, too. That's what we'd do in your place.

  8. 12 Very Unlikely Candidates to Play Twelve In Doctor Who

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    There's been a lot of speculation floating around about who should replace the soon-departing Matt Smith on Doctor Who. Our buds at Geekosystem, for one, have quite the cool list. But we wanted to go in a different direction. To that end, here are 12 people who definitely won't be picking up a sonic screwdriver and saving the universe. Even though we might want them to.

  9. Technology Helps Hospitals Get Your Superhero Back Up and Running

    Sponsored

    Hospitals are a necessary part of the infrastructure of the comic book world but not one that's generally paid a whole lot of attention to. They're like bathrooms on spaceships: You know they're there, and you know people have to use them (don't tell me Spider-Man hasn't given himself a concussion with an over-enthusiastic swing at least once), but they just don't show up all that often unless it's to blow one up The Dark Knight-style.

    Romance

    Some people like Valentine's Day. Some people hate it. Some people don't care much either way. Regardless of your feelings on the holiday itself, we hope you can enjoy this selection of geeky Valentines. Flowers are overrated. (Not chocolate, though.)
