ran the Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test
on her character Zane Devereaux, and was alarmed to see that he came up as a 91. I think the test is flawed and the score was therefore artificially high, but just for larfs, I ran it on my character Cecil Goodytwoshoes.
Cecil scored a 21. EDIT: Whoops! I forgot the De-Sueifiers! 20.
I wasn't all THAT surprised, but I thought I'd add a few comments, because some of this applies to Sims Stories in general.( Long. You've been warned. )
But most of the time, my characters in general have vices that match their virtues. Sophia has a lot of energy and is very strong-willed; she's also a bit of a rebel and can get in trouble that way. Is Lytton a quiet, studious, affectionate man who cares deeply about his family, or is he a geeky pushover with an overly idealistic view of human behavior? Is Cecil admirably steadfast or irritatingly stubborn? The behavior is the same, but what you think of it depends on who and where you are.
