Reverse Mary Sue

So, according to the ‘Mary Sue’ litmus tests I’ve seen online- depicting your lead character as receiving a priceless, or very personal memento from another lead character (or two) is a no-no. So, I decided to do the opposite and have my lead give a gift. It’s actually something that means a great deal, sentimentally, to both her and her BFF. My logic in this- take what’s mentioned in those ‘tests’ and do the opposite. Yeah, that’ll work, right? We’ll see.

Check out this link, given to me by one of my friend Karla. Of all the Mary Sue litmus tests I’ve seen online, I prefer this one.
