The Mary Sue Wants YOU: To Be Our Next Intern

It’s that time again! The Mary Sue is seeking a kick-ass editorial intern for the fall. This is no coffee-and-errands internship: our interns spend 90% of their time writing, and most definitely receive bylines for all of their stories. We also like to recruit through our internships, so if becoming the star reporter for the Daily Planet is your goal, this isn’t a bad way to get started. Besides, if we get one more full time writer on the site we’ll have the numbers to form a coven. (We just won’t talk about who the crone is.)

“Hold on,” you say, darting your eyes about confusedly. “What’s ‘The Mary Sue?’”

…Really?

The Mary Sue is the geeky woman arm (I dunno, maybe it’s got a TARDIS tattoo?) of the shadowy, all-powerful Abrams Media collective. We’re six sites reaching over 10 million people a month. We’re less than two years old. We’ve got big things ahead of us.

“But what will I do as an intern?” you ask, wringing your hands in anticipation, or possibly consternation.

You’ll join us in our offices (yeah, a loft in SoHo, exposed brick, no big thing), write, look at Google Reader, write, write some more, learn to be a Real Live Blogger, etc.

“How can I get this wondrous gig?” you ululate, collapsing to the floor in paroxysms of excitement, perhaps foaming at the mouth a bit for effect.

It’s pretty simple.

The 10 Most Powerful Rings

We’ve always had a special place in our hearts for MacGuffins, and not just the ones that psychically implant themselves there. And many of the most iconic MacGuffins out there are rings. They’re pretty. They’re shiny. They would look great with those earrings you have. And they just might herald the doom of all mankind.

For this particular grid we’ve tried to focus on the most powerful rings out there, in anticipation of a certain movie release.

Oh, we mean The Lord of the Rings coming back to theaters. What?
