  1. It’s-A Me, Mary Sue: Why She’s An Important Figure For Fanfic And Fangirls

    Hide your fics, the Mary Sue is coming!

    So fanfic is great. We all know that. You get it. But what about… you know, that kind of fanfic? She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named? The Steven Moffat of fanfics? The very namesake of this site? THE MARY SUE. We can still hate her and the people who write Mary Sue fics, right? RIGHT? No. No you cannot.

  4. The Mary Sue Writers’ Nerdy New Year’s Resolutions for 2015

    What's yours?

    Here at The Mary Sue, our personal New Year's resolutions tend to be pretty odd in comparison to the stereotypical ones. Like, yeah yeah, be better with money and get in shape or whatever, but what we really need to be doing is playing more video games and organizing our comic books better, right? Here's what each of us is looking forward to accomplishing in our lives this year. If you're still brainstorming your own goals to propel you into 2015, feel free to borrow some ideas from us!

  14. Welcome to the New and Improved The Mary!

    On Our Redesign and Merger

    There's something different about us today... No, we didn't get a hair cut. These aren't a new pair of glasses. And we haven't been going to the gym any more or less than usual. No, we've got ourselves a brand spanking new redesign! Isn't it lovely? *twirls* But that's just the candy coating on our brand new status quo. And it's an exciting status quo. So here's the story of how we are becoming one big happy family with our sister site

  17. Fan Expo Canada Addresses Cosplay Harassment Concerns, Gets Us Caught In Crosshairs

    This whole day has been really weird.

    We tend not to follow cosplay and convention harassment as often as our sister site, The Mary Sue, does. That doesn't mean we aren't interested in seeing convention leaders step up against harassment, of course, so we've been following The Mary Sue's recent exposé on Fan Expo Canada pretty closely. Today, the whole thing just got really weird.

  18. Happy 3rd Birthday To The Mary Sue: Why I Love Our Logos (And Hope You Do Too)

    The Mary Sue

    Three years ago today, an inauspicious little thing happened. Some electrons moved from one place to another and all of a sudden this website was live on the internet. At the time I was very worried nobody would like us. I'm happy to report that that has turned out to be not true a great many times. In the past year alone we've hosted an advance movie screening, an incredible reader party, and a New York Comic Con panel. And that's just our IRL achievements. We've also written about some crazy stuff in the past year, and it's a safe bet there's more crazy stuff in our future. (Trust me on this, I have some very secret "inside sources.") Turning three years old has us feeling pretty nostalgic, so as your fearless Managing Editor, I'm going to take a look back at our logo ladies, show you all of them in one place, and talk about why I like them so much.

  19. This Graph Says Your Movie Will Do Better If It Has Two Women Talking to Each Other

    It also implies Sharknado did something right, so keep that in mind.

    From the baffling nudity of Star Trek Into Darkness to the inadvertent sexism of the head animator of Frozen, 2013 seemed like a bad year for women on screen.  However, The Mary Sue still found reason to celebrate, with a chart that demonstrates a possible connection between a strong female presence in a film and its box office success.
