YMMV: Till We Have Faces
  • Mary Sue: A very interesting case. Can Mary Sue, perhaps, be done well? Istra (Psyche) is undoubtedly perfect in beauty, temperament, goodness and love; yet because this is one of the story's initial givens rather than its point, because she is not the main character, and because the main character both loves and hates her for it, this fact adds dimensions to the story rather than flattening it.
    • An additional complication is added by the fact that for much of the story the main character believes - very reasonably believes, as she points out in her denunciation of the gods - that Psyche is delusional.
