This is the character audition I'm working on: Mary Robinson
Name: Mary Robinson
Build Points: 150/150
Concept: Comic Book Girl
Origin: Mary has no clue how or why it happened, but for 9 months now she has found herself responding to danger--especially threats to the innocent--by turning into characters from the racy comic books she writes. She then retains the form, powers, and personality of these uninhibited character ‘til the next rising of the sun.
This has lead to a lot of blushing…
Birthday: 11th of February
Measures: 36”D, 26”, 32”
Skin: Fair and creamy.
Hair: Raven black, usually kept in a long french braid.
Eyes: Beautiful, vivid sapphire, usually muted by her glasses.
Style: Whenever going out, Marry usually wears the same conservative but elegant dresses she does when doing missionary work.
So, I randomly asked some people for a good name for a girl born in a Mormon family. Mary was suggested--for Mary the mother of Christ. I replied that was more a catholic name, but then I flashed on Marry Magdeline--whom it is entirely likely Jesus married at the wedding at Caina, but is usually combined with the prostitute who washed Jesus's feet... Cause we can't have the son of god get married like every other man in his culture!
I decided this was entirely appropriate for a a girl who changes forms between a conservative, compassionate virgin and a variety of playful wenches.
I missed the point completely!
So, Mary is a shy and repressed conservative Mormon, but she writes about uninhabited, wild and sexy comic book heroines. They're an outlet for her own repressed sexuality and other wild aspects.
So, what do you call it when a writer inserts themselves into their own stories, with superpowers, and the freedom to do the things they can't do in real life?
Her supper power is that she's a Mary Sue!!!
