      I strongly dislike the idea of calling one of my OFCs "Mary Sue". It's too negative a connotation, and one that I try diligently to avoid.

      OTOH, if an OFC or OMC is written to further the story, well, if you can make me believe it, congratulations.

      You try explaining that to most fanfic fans these days - the minute they see an OFC you get tarred as a "Mary Sue" and your stuff gets slagged all over the internet.
