I have to say, it's very possible for a professional author to write a Mary Sue.Just because you are getting paid for it, and you have the authorization of the original company, does NOT mean you can't write a Mary Sue.We all know who is being referenced here. To have a character written, who steps on lore written 15 years ago, go back in time and suddenly pop up and be the teacher to one lore figure, an inspiration to another, and fighting along side others, no, that's a Mary Sue. Especially considering the description of his perfect figure, and perfect hair. And how he scores a chick who normally wouldn't even look at one of his kind as a mate, and not only that, but has twins with her, something that is extremely rare with her race.Then to have that character placed in-game, where before you could ignore him by not reading the books, now he's facing you, literally, as you turn in quests to him.That's a Mary Sue. Paid for the work or not. Imagine someone went back, and rewrote Star Trek, so they somehow all magically fell into place, and were united as a crew ten years before they were supposed to. And they all fell into their roles, with no training beyond academy training. And they somehow were kept on as the crew, despite their age.Oh, wait.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IptbC3p2lCk(Note, I am not calling anything in Star Trek a Mary Sue, but just how changing lore can piss people off.)
