如何创作玛丽苏风格的小说

MARY SUE - Terrible Writing Advice

[糟糕的写作建议]
[第二章:完美的主角]
One thing every story needs is a protagonist.
每个故事都离不开主角
But what kind of protagonist, one might ask?
但是人们可能会问 什么样的主角呢?
Why a perfect one of course!
为什么一定要完美的主角?
Let’s get started!
我们来一探究竟吧!
At first, creating the perfect protagonist may seem like a daunting task.
首先 创造完美主角乍看之下是一项艰巨的任务
But don’t worry!
不过 别担心!
Let’s just start with a name.
我们先从名字开始
We will call our protagonist, uh, Mary Sue.
就称之为“玛丽·苏”
See. We are already halfway done!
看 我们已经成功了一半!
Utterly lacking in self awareness?
完全缺乏自我意识?
Perfect!
非常理想!
They say write what you know.
人们说要写你知道的
And almost everyone knows themselves better than anyone else.
而人们几乎最了解的就是自己
So just put yourself into the story.
所以 就把你自己放进故事中吧
Some might worry that they will make for a poor protagonist.
有些人可能会担心自己成不了完美主角
Fear not.
何须担心
That’s just because we need to get rid of the one thing
我们只需去除这么一样东西
that makes audiences not identified with a character.
一样让观众无法认同角色的东西
Flaws!
也就是缺点!
Yes. Just scrub all of your flaws away
没错 把缺点去得一干二净
and make your protagonist an idealized version of yourself.
使主角成为理想化的自己
Now that we have removed all flaws.
既然我们去掉了所有缺点
Let’s start adding strengths.
现在来增添些优点吧
Let’s make Mary Sue young if not immortal
把玛丽·苏设定为年轻女子 要不就是永生者
because she is a half dragon,
因为她是个半龙
half vampire, half angel, half elven princess.
半吸血鬼 半天使 半精灵的公主
Always have everyone else describe her as beautiful while she
总引得人人称赞她的美貌
remains completely unaware of her own gorgeous looks.
而她却对自己的美貌全然不知
Have her be so attractive that guys literally fight over her,
让她变得非常美丽 以至于男人们为她而战
but make sure Mary Sue is never actually smart
但是得确保玛丽·苏不够聪明
enough to figure out why.
找不出原因
That would make her look vain, which is a flaw.
这会使她看起来很自负 而这是一个缺点
Now some of you might believe that flaws make characters
你们中的有些人可能会认为 缺点使角色更可信
believable and are a useful tool for humanizing our protagonist.
而且也是丰富主角人物形象的工具
That means if we must give Mary Sue flaws,
这意味着如果非要给玛丽·苏设定缺点
then we should give her things like
就得赋予这样的品质
‘she cares too much’ or ‘she is too kind and selfless’.
比如她过分关爱他人或过分善良无私
We can even have her die tragically at the end of the story
我们甚至可以让她在故事的结尾悲惨地死去
and say that she was simply too good for this sinful Earth.
并说 这个丑陋的世界配不上这么善良的她
It’s okay.
没关系的
We can always resurrect her later.
之后总能让她复活
If we need to add some drama,
如果要加些戏剧性情节
we could always give her a tragic backstory
便可以为她设置一个悲惨的身世
that she constantly angsts about, but never actually affects her
令她痛苦不已 不过这不会影响她
outside of getting her pity points with the other characters.
楚楚可怜的外表
But before that, we need to make sure
但是在那之前 我们需要确保
that everyone knows Mary Sue is special!
人人都知道玛丽·苏很特别
Have a prophecy in the story?
故事中有预言?
Make sure it’s all about her!
你要确保一切都要围绕她展开!
Is Mary Sue not in the scene?
玛丽·苏不在这一幕?
Have every other character there talk about her.
那就让其他每个角色都谈论她
Shifting focus to the villains?
把焦点转移到坏人身上?
Make sure they don’t waste time actually running their evil empire
确保他们不花心思管理自己的邪恶帝国
or otherwise bringing their dark desires to fruition.
或者是把他们的邪念变成现实
Instead, they should be worrying about what Mary Sue is doing
相反 他们应该担心玛丽·苏正在做什么
or plotting to take her for themselves.
或者密谋将她据为己有
Does Mary Sue have parents?
玛丽·苏有父母吗?
Make sure they are either outrageously abusive or perfect except for being tragically dead.
确保他们要么坏得离奇 要么很善良却悲惨死去
Or both!
两者结合也可以!
Have her real, special parents killed in the backstory
让她的亲生父母在故事开始前过世
while she is stuck with abusive, normal foster parents.
她只得留在残暴的养父母身边
If they are abusive,
如果养父母很恶毒
make sure they inflict terrible atrocities upon her
让他们给主角施加暴行
like forcing her to wear dresses or attending school to better her education.
比如强迫她穿裙子 乖乖上学以获取更优质的教育
Need to make a clear distinction between good and evil characters?
需要清晰界定好人和坏人吗?
Mary Sue makes it easy!
玛丽·苏让这一切变得容易!
If a character disagrees with her,
如果某个角色与她不和
then they are most certainly a bad guy.
那必定是反面人物
While all those who agree with her are 100% virtuous without fail.
而所有赞同她的人毫无疑问就是正面人物
This removes any character who could call out Mary Sue
这就使得没有人可以责怪她
for her mistakes, which she never makes so it isn’t needed.
因为她不会犯错
One thing to watch out for is to ensure that Mary Sue never fails.
需要注意的一件事是确保玛丽·苏从不失败
Have her effortlessly overcome every challenge.
让她毫不费力地战胜所有挑战
Make sure she bests all veteran characters in the setting
打败故事设定中的所有高手
inspite of having only a fraction of the experience.
尽管她的实际经验少得可怜
Are the villains ruthless and supremely powerful?
反派们都冷酷无情 无比强大?
Not compared to Mary Sue.
玛丽·苏让他们无法望其项背
They should crumble before her in the most anticlimactic way
恶人们应在她面前以最突然的方式被击溃
possible just like the story’s narrative stakes.
就像故事中叙述的风险一样
It’s not like our readers actually want to see a close contest.
我们的读者并不想看到双方势均力敌的较量
If any villain ever manages to actually hurt Mary Sue or any of her friends,
如果有反派真的伤害到玛丽·苏或者她的朋友
make sure she dishes out a hundred volt more than she receives.
保证她能以百倍奉还
Ensure that she makes the villain suffer far more than she did
确保她让反派遭受的痛苦比她遭受的大得多
and that she shows him no remorse.
她也绝不同情反派
After all, we don’t want Mary Sue
毕竟 我们不想让玛丽·苏
to display unheroic traits like mercy or forgiveness.
展示出不具英雄气概的特征 如仁慈和宽容
Is Mary Sue starting to look a lot like the villain she is fighting?
玛丽·苏是不是开始与她所对抗的反派相像?
We could use their similarities to show Mary Sue’s flaws
我们可以利用他们的相似点 揭露玛丽·苏的缺点
while highlighting the positive traits of the villain to showcase
同时强化反派性格中的闪光点
the story’s deep themes about the razor edge difference between heroes and villains,
深化故事主题 英雄与反派只有一线之差
adding a layer of depth to both the story’s symbolism and characterization.
给故事的象征意义和人物刻画增加深度
But that’s dumb.
但这太蹩脚了
We don’t want the audience to actually think about depressing stuff like that.
我们不希望观众真的对那种消极的东西进行思考
Thankfully this is easy to fix.
万幸的是 这很容易解决
Simply make the villain even more despicable for extra contrast.
只需让反派更加卑劣 从而加强对比
That should stop the audience from rooting for him.
那应该会阻止观众为他喝彩
Now we have a perfect protagonist for our story.
现在我们为故事设定了一个完美的主角
Good luck, and may your story be too good for this sinful Earth.
祝你好运 希望你的故事也能达到同样效果
Wait wait wait!
等一下等一下
I don’t think this will work.
我觉得这个办法不靠谱
My self insert should be a guy.
以我为原型的角色应该是个男生
There! I’ll call him, Marty Stu.
这样 我叫他 马提·苏
