a stamp for anyone who shares a similar view. Mary/Gary sue or not.

I don't read fanfictions about my favorite shows, comics, anime and etc just to read about one of your little characters.

SRSLY. I don't give two shits about it in fanart, as I don't look at it enough to... but keep it out of fanfiction realm, for all our sakes. I understand using minor OCs to help move the plot along... but focusing the entire basis of your story on some random character irrelevant to the actual series? Why not just write your own story instead?

To be fair, you don't hate new characters. Just badly written characters.
Which is mostly what most people do. It's mostly because it's self-insertion and the lack of actually getting into the original creators mind and perspective.

There are however people who could have the ability to write really well written characters that would fit as naturally as if the original creator created themselves.

Of course those are far and few between...and at that point, they might as well make their own story.

Oh and a bit of serendipity, most fanfictions are as bad as OCs.

Maybe you should just change this stamp into, "Sorry, but... I hate poorly written ideas".

Well that's obvious. But there are always a few gems among the shitty ones, and that's kinda what I seek. The ones not written by thirteen year olds

I think its more fun to create an OC with your own world instead of taking a story line someone else came up with.

Oc's are technically fakes with no persona and are replacements for female anime characters. They are supposed to be perfect and everyone fights over them trying to get them pregnant and so forth. They are created by the author so they can be the main females and be with their favorite male character.

I once stumbled upon a wiki dedicated to Sonic OC's. And I kid you not, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM was an absolute Sue. I have nothing against OC's, having written stories myself with them, but I try not to make them perfect, because, well, that makes it boring. I will accept an OC if they are well-balanced. If not, well, goodbye.

I agree.
I was once reading a fanfic when all of the sudden a oc appeared! It felt like the fanfic just became about the oc.
