There's something I want to say about original characters in fanfics that I can't quite wrap my head around to articulate......It's something about when I'm looking for a story about Kirk and the usual suspects having adventures - there's a real good chance that I don't like that Lieutenant you created for your story nearly as much as you do, and it's definitely possible to make me feel like you're forcing your pet character down my throat. It's something fan writers do a lot, related to the 'Mary Sue', if not THAT bad.Valka? Do you get what I'm talking about? A little help? (Probably a good time to tell the crowd about Paula Smith coining the term 'Mary Sue' - and explain why Ensign Sue is a Very Bad Thing for the benefit of the uninitiated...)
