I loved Ramses as a boy, but found Ramfret (love that, btw) fanfictionish. Ramses is almost a superhero in his perfection and Nefret, too, is one-dimensionally perfect. I think this is a fascinating situation because, technically, they are secondary characters. Amelia and Emerson are the leads. If an author was going to turn characters into Mary Sues and Stews, you'd think she'd do it with her main characters. But Amelia and Emerson remain imperfect and totally blind to this fact, which is what is so terrific about them.
