The Mary Sue’s Favorite Comments Of The Week: Don’t Talk About The Mary Sue Club


We made it through another week, commenters! Let’s see what you got up to on the boards.

First of all, you should know the first rule of commenting on TMS from this post on why Joss Whedon left Twitter:

But Jill Baker Oliver knows what really happened: “Everyone, it’s actually my fault Joss left Twitter. Because I exposed the fact that he’s a vampire that feeds off of our despair when he kills off our favorite characters. I’m… I’m sorry. I truly am.”

Even though a mother-daughter duo raised 16k to fund a book that would inspire girls of color, Katharine Ellis Tapley knows its appeal is universal: “My little girl is so white, she’s almost clear, but SHE will want this book!”

After Teresa’s Orphan Black review this week, FevversErisWheels made an excellent apparel suggestion: “Thank you, Teresa! Now we need “Cool story, sestra” tshirts STAT.”

Finding out that Osgood is returning to Doctor Who is good news, but there’s always an opportunity for a sweet Moffat burn, right Marcy Cook? “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey. Can we do the same handwaving with Moffat’s scripts?”

Charlie Bee was impressed with Jill’s sweet Arrow burn in her post about hating Gotham:

After reading Rebecca’s The Last Airbender movie newbie recap, Huggbees knows what’s up: “The twist is that this movie never happened.”

Upon discovering GWAR fired its only female member, daphnetrodon had a question for you TMS readers (and an answer of her own): “So, her description was “buxom scumdog from the distant future”. TMS commenters! What would your character description be in the imaginary band we’re all in together? Mine would be ‘trans kaiju princess from an ancient undersea kingdom.’ Gotta stick with my love of kaiju and marine biology.”

When Jill went on TV to discuss the Avengers and revealed she was wearing Batman underwear, WheelchairNinja quietly reminded her: “Um, Jill? I think you mixed up TMS and TMI…”

McDonalds rebooted the Hamburglar this week, and The Sojourner is never welcome back in our comments section again: “Er… what? I grimace at the thought of what they’re going to do with the rest of them.”

Finally, when Tatiana Maslany revealed that she would like to play the Doctor, our commenters rose to the occasion spectacularly:

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
