"No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness."
If you're looking for any trace of sanity, I suggest you turn around head back to where you came from. I'm a right nutter, and proud of it.
In truth, I hardly ever visit Fan-Fiction anymore, and for one simple reason: The quality of the writings found here has declined to a level that has proven to be more insane than I am. It seems nowadays, everywhere you look has proven to hold nothing more in store than a "fandom" crammed-packed with spiceless, cliche, completely evanescent characters that fall into the same subcategories, no matter how you try to twist them around.
If you want to keep a "fan-made/self-made" character out of the depths of being labeled as a "Mary-Sue" or a "Gary-Stu", you could run your character through a few series of tests.
The first is the "Interests Tests". To keep your character from becoming indulged in what every well-known triteness ridden hobby ((Usually something having to do with being artistic in some way or another.)), you could always use anto fix the problem.
Another good test is the most obvious of them all: the. It's a bit of a ringer, as it delves into nearly every microbyte aspect of your character, so passing is quite a blessing for an author/in the making.
Whether or not you can successfully create a platitude-free character does not necessarily mean that you are, in fact, a bad writer. Many publicized novels and series also hold the same problems. It truly matters on how you, as a writer, view your passion within your stories and characters, and how to plan to handle both their strong suits, and their more ill-fated of qualities.
Keep an open mind, and happy writing.
