Occasionally I like to think up really bad Mary Sue stories as fics and today I came up with one that is so bad, so obvious, that I'm giddy. It's based on the show Bitten, (which is based on a series of books I haven't read yet), and in the first series the books center on Elena, the only female to ever survive being bitten by a werewolf and to become one herself. For some reason so far no woman except Elena has survived the change. So naturally that means that Mary Sue is *surprise* another women who does.
This is so bad I might actually write it.
Anyhow, on the show the former Alpha of the main pack that Elena belongs to, (they set the rules for all the other packs and the "mutts" who are werewolves without a pack), is still angry that he was ousted by his son for the position of Alpha and has declared war on them by taking some members of the pack out and trying to reveal their werewolf status by attacking people and leaving their bodies on the pack's property. So I dreamt up, (that's true, because I wasn't actively thinking about this, I was just waking up... hey, it worked for whatshername that wrote the sparkly vamp books), that the ex-Alpha and his new pack of mutts had found a woman that they thought could survive the change as bait for his son and they drop her off in the woods outside the main house and as wolves just begin to chase & terrorize her. The Pack know that there are other Wolves on their property and change and give chase, only to see them chasing the woman and have her surrounded. Before they can get close enough to chase them off, one bites her and they run off, leaving her with the "good" Wolves. Figuring she's a goner anyhow, they change back to human form, which of course freaks her out even more. But the change starts and she surprisingly has the strength to run off. She is able to get far enough away to be nearly through the change and shocked to see that she might survive, they decide not to kill her. (Which is what they would normally do seeing as it's horrifically painful and since women almost never survive it's seen as a kindness.) Next morning she wakes up, completely confused, and is greeted by the Pack. As a newbie she is completely weak and has to be carried, (because OF COURSE the Mary Sue now has to be seen as a victim and to be taken care of), back to the main house. There they have to decide what to do with her.
The local sheriff shows up because they found her car in the woods and they think they have to do another search for yet another body but she (I haven't thought of the requisite cool yet overly romantic name for her yet) comes down the stairs and noting the tension immediately understands the situation and tells the sheriff she hit a deer with her car and in a panic when it wouldn't start she tried to walk out of the woods and got lost and the Danvers found them and took pity on her and let her stay the night. The sheriff then recognizes the woman because, oh this is where it gets GREAT, she's a world class cellist! And the sheriff is a fan. D'aww.
After the sheriff leaves and the now wolf shifter cellist is faced with this pack of wolves she has to break an even bigger secret. Telling them that she feels almost magically compelled to Jeremy (the Alpha) that she can't keep secrets from them, (awwww), and that she can tell that they must go to great effort to keep their existence a secret, that she is in fact a liability to them because.... du du duuuuuh, she's actually a CIA operative that was recruited at a young age for her talent with music and languages and the fact she's an orphan. Oh! And there's the tragic backstory. Plus, uber abilities! And she knows that if anyone at the CIA ever found out what she or any of them were they'd be in great danger because of course the government would exploit them, she tells them sadly that she can't stay because that would draw too much attention to them. (Even though in just one night her and the Alpha totes obvs bonded and are in love and stuff.)
But there is a reprieve from her necessary exile from these people that are all instantly smitten with her...oh. Oh, that's the name. Smitten. Hahahahahaha. Oh, I kill me. But she has to stay for a while as Jeremy teaches her the way of the wolf and she has to learn to integrate her new duality into her work saving 'Merica from baddies.
Oh god this is so dumb I love it.

Maybe I'll name her Maru. Like the cat. But I also like Moriya. I basically just googled "similar to Mary". But Moriya has biblical links and at some point someone irreverent can say, "Hiya, Moriya!" and it's funny because she's a trained killer genius now turned wolf.
Sherlock should be a woman. A recovering alcoholic woman. Lives in New Orleans. Sherleen. (Because Sherlock is a ridiculous name for a woman, even a fictional one.)Descended from Augusta Holmes. Took her name, because Sherleen is also a musician &/or she hates her immediate family.
Her partner is a doctor from New York that showed up after Katrina to help out and stayed.

Go ahead and write that one. Alan Moore does that kind of thing all the time, and look what it got him. That's at least fairly original and not fan fic. You know how you can tell? I didn't do that PinTA! Listen! thing.
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
