These are my results from the Mary Sue Test I took: https://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/quizreport.php?title=is-your-protagonist-mary-sue&sid=166143256# While some things are legitimately bad to use for a character, I found most of it to be kind of unfair. Every other test tallied up the answers. This one just says whether each individual thing is good or bad. Most of these aren't bad by themselves. It felt pretty biased to me. And maybe I want a little angst in my story. I want some characters to have not-so-good back stories and get emotional sometimes. Is that really going to turn readers/publishers off that much? Maybe they're right?
