Mary Sue discovers fanfic

What's that you say? Mary Sue doesn't need to discover fanfic, she's floating in it?

Lorem Ipsum, a homeschooling blog, discovers fanfic through misunderstanding an accusation of Mary Sue. No, it's not a Prissy, nonsexual, goodie-two-shoes heroine who is a perfect exemplar of 1950’s-era femininity.

This is a wonderful explanation of fanfic and Mary Sue characters, told with wit and humor. I like to see my tribe through other people's perceptions, and this is an excellent example of it.
