By now, many of us have seen the Mary Sue Litmus Test. If you haven't... it's well worth a look.
This quiz here is based on the same model and the same principle, only it's meant to test a different sort of character that frequently pops up in slash fiction. Everyone has seen him in one story or another. He's the one with the tragic past. Chances are, he was raped or abused by his father, a former lover, or slave traders from Gondor. Maybe he was abandoned or kidnapped as a child. Maybe he's lost his memory or the power of speech. Overall, he's younger, smaller, more fragile (both emotionally and physically), and will inevitably be healed through the mystical powers contained in his lover's pants. This character, very different from the Mary Sue hero type but just as recognisable, is what I call a "Lirimaer", after the Grelvish word for "lovely one" that was so often used as a term of affection in the past.
I've noticed the Lirimaer character ever since I started reading slash fiction, and he's still going strong in stories to this day. He appears in multiple fandoms. This quiz, however, is specifically geared toward Tolkien Elf fanfic. Check the boxes below for each "yes" answer that applies to your character.
Thanks to Lenine2 for her excellent help with the coding of this quiz, because my knowledge of PHP is about as extensive as my knowledge of nanosurgery.
