Her eyes and her wit are both dazzling; [[BeautyEqualsGoodness her nose and her morals are alike free from any tendency to irregularity]]; she has a superb contralto and a superb intellect; she is perfectly well-dressed and perfectly religious; she dances like a sylph, and [[{{Omniglot}} reads the Bible in the original tongues]]. Or it may be that [[RagsToRoyalty the heroine is not an heiressĖthat rank and wealth are the only things in which she is deficient; but she infallibly gets into high society, she has the triumph of refusing many matches and securing the best]], and she wears [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry some family jewels]] or other as a sort of crown of righteousness at the end. Rakish men either bite their lips in impotent confusion at her repartees, or [[EasyEvangelism are touched to penitence by her reproofs]], which, on appropriate occasions, rise to a lofty strain of rhetoric; indeed, there is a general propensity in her to make speeches, and to rhapsodize at some length when she retires to her bedroom.

->''Y'know, I think I understand the Mary Sue a little better now. What makes a Sue isn't that they have limitless powers and quirks and "special" qualities... it's need. Mary Sues are generally "chosen ones," destined to save others. The world revolves around them as a perfect crystal star. But it's all window dressing... there's no room in the story for anyone else to truly help them better themselves, denying them the potential for growth and increased empathy. They love people, but they don't need them. But Kirk, the Doctor, Wolverine... they DO need people. They have flaws which require the presence of others to counteract. Kirk is headstrong and cocksure, the Doctor can get lost in his god-complex and lose perspective, Wolverine just goes nuts sometimes. While they're certainly brilliantly capable, to be at their very best they must connect with those around them. Even Superman needs to be brought down to Earth by Batman now and then. But each Sue is an island. This may be the key to their downfall, because this is why no one loves them like they seem to think they should. They don't NEED to connect with others for support, their empathy is purely cosmetic. They're each designed so that they can handle any situation with nothing but their own perfect attributes.''

->''Having a relatable character is key to writing a story, and who's more relatable than You? You know You better than anyone, and if there's one thing You know about You, it's that You are great. The easiest way to make a main character likable is to make every character in-universe love them unconditionally. Character flaws are bad, so make sure your character doesn't have any! Also, make sure to give them a cool power, like an evil dark side or omnipotence.''
