I'm going to try to make this as civil and understanding as possible.

I'm kind of tired of getting hate mail because Cosmic is an Alicorn. It's really not the first time I've been sent something saying that having an Alicorn, essentially, makes me out to be a piece of shit artist with no creativity. While they don't say this literally, they mean it that way by grouping me in with actual Mary Sues. I shouldn't have to go out of my way to explain or defend having an Alicorn OC, and I only have one so it's not like I'm breeding and playing around with a plethora of Alicorn OC's. Cosmic is not a god or anything crazy like that, and if you can't even bring it to yourself to be a decent person and tolerate other people with their variety of OC's or their ideas, you make all bronies look really bad. You are not a true MLP fan if you shun out different kinds of ponies, you're just some crazy person forcing themselves into a fandom that teaches nothing but tolerance just to stir the nonexistent shitpot of Brony Drama.

If messaging me that you hate Cosmic or dislike her for being what she is and it's just so important to you that you must take time out of your own life to let me know that, you really need to get your priorities straight because you have more issues than any person who sits around creating Alicorn OC's.

I own only one Alicorn OC, she's not super powerful or godlike or regal in any way, you're just bored and have nothing else better to do than to go around making people feel bad for having ideas that you don't seem to agree with. 

I get it, a lot of people who have Alicorn OC's can, at times, be very over the top. But so are other pony OC's, there are tons of Unicorn, Earth pony or Pegasus ponies that are designed WAY over the top, if you want to take it upon yourself to feel upset over a species of equine that really just gets your panties in a knot, take that up with the creators of MLP because they put the image into your weak minds that Alicorns must all be god like and should be shunned as so if born with both horn and wings, I did not come up with that idea, they did. I genuinely believe people who are insanely crazy Alicorn haters for no reason other than having wings and a horn, have potential to be racists in real life too, you're already half way there, good job. You're not only a bad Brony from the start, but you're also turning into a bad person.

Thank you for your time.. I guess.. :roll:

I think a lot of people have more of a knee-jerk reaction to alicorns. Not to mention people love to sling "Mary Sue" around without even fully knowing what it means or the origins of the term. Don't sweat it! Keep on doin' what you're doin' and I think you'll change some minds.

If you want some relief from a bit more authority, there's always the Mary Sue litmus tests. The first one I found on a search, and I think it is the one that I usually use on my own stuff, is: www.springhole.net/writing/mar…

Even without knowing all the details, odds are I'm betting you'll come out fine. :D

Hate mail? Seriously? Wow, some people need to grow up and let you draw what you want to, and if they can't comment nicely, shouldn't at all. Not you, nor is this aimed that way, but an oc's and oc, and if folks can't get over what an oc is, they need to let it go, not go after another. (I wouldn't care if someone had a diamond dog oc, heck, there should be more of them.) I'm sorry you've had to deal with folks like that. I am, no one should, and I hope for all the crud you are dealing with in this. You can hopefully have a much better day.

Yeah, of course alicorns can be good, if they have a nice story and stuff.
I didnt want to be unpleasant when i ws commenting about her, i just find choosing alicorn as your oc OP, but if shes not, its ok.

well, then please allow me to take some of my really precious time to let you know that...
you can stop caring about the whole "Mary Sue" business.

I do not know who invented her or what brought her up, but I do know that low-class people have been using her as an excuse to get upper-class people like you to lower your standards.... and this, my dear Cosmic, is a fact I have encountered but I am still trying to prove its validity through statistical studies ;D

In any manner, we, all of us artists poor or good, have our own characters ((or OC's)) to write about. If you would allow me just a small exposure, I'd tell you that, had I thought about this Mary lady, I would not have written a word in my entire life and I only ever wrote about the owls of Ga'Hoole since I'm not your regular brony ((I just very much admire the show, its message, and the artistic creations here on dA ^^; )) and you would stare at me in wonder had you read anything I ever wrote of Ga'Hoole!

Basically at that, I would give you the advice to just turn a cold wing ((since Cosmic is an alicorn ;P)) and just.... drink tea or something ^_^ and I hope to never hear that you had to lower your creativity standards that made me a fan of yours just because you felt a bit weakened over some low class person.
Really! I am actually arrogant enough to tell you that having a person like me be a fan of your art is an actual honour so don't you be slacking, young lady!

be at ease... and drink that cup of tea. It would sooth your agitate nerves ;D

I agree with you. And if you really want to get into it, Twilight Sparkle, herself, can be rather Mary Sue-ish in certain episodes. Even though she starts off as a jerk, everyone likes her immediately and basically insist on being her friends before they know anything about her. Even with all of her hard work studying, the number of times that she's like, "I've already read about this in a book" or "I have a fail-safe spell" (really?). Of course, it depends on the episode and she can be very adorably awkward and Dash was actually butting heads with her right off the bat, so there's that, at least. Just depends on the writer.

Eh. I'm only against alicorn OC's if they're over the top like you said. Like being the king/queen of Equestria or being the parents of Luna and Celestia. 

If they aren't over the top, and don't have some horribly awful color scheme, then they're alright by me.
