Hmmmm .........only did part 1

Look . I didn't invent Ed Straker.

Honestly.

Although other people might get a different score depending on their stories/viewpoints.

don't worry Ed Martin  Steve Straker

I still love you!! Smiley

Hi Louise,

who wants to read about totally boring characters anyway? I think it's pretty clear whenever you see a real Mary Sue or Marty Steve. It's not just a numbers game.

Sheesh - Count Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster, Ellen Ripley, etc etc - all would score high.

Hi Louise,

and sheesh - I might have to rename him  Smiley

Sooo many Jaspers around lately. What irks me is that I loved that name a decade ago already and kept using it for various characters, way before Stephenie Meyer took it up.

I guess I must hunt for another nice oldfashioned name for my "Injun".  Angry

Hi Louise,

well, I *am* partial to that name, but there are really MANY of them around. Angry

And also... right now he simply has long hair, maybe I ought to give him the full Mohawk hairdo?



or

Hi Louise,

I mean -- would you want to meet one of THOSE guys at night in a dark side alley?

Which guy.. Straker or Jasper.. I'd meet either of them!
Seriously though, that would be a great follow-up story.. especially if you involved aliens!!

Hmm... !

Hi Louise,

well - I already conceded that Jasper would be too good a character to have in one story only  Grin

Yeah, I wouldn't mind meeting either either (helplessly laughing here).

HEY!!! There's an idea for a challenge.

Write a story with your favourite UFO charcter ( I was going to say Straker ... But I thought of you, Matt!) as a Non-Mary-Sue!!

Ginny... fat, incomptetent, short hair. Dresses in Asda clothes. three kids, all in trouble with the police. Secret drinker ( gin)


Louise, I loved the play on "Matt's" pet for her! But the image you described will give me nightmares for the rest of my life! Shocked Cheesy

I can only imagine what your description of Ed is doing to you! Shocked :Smiley
  

What do you mean, we're out of coffee!
