Absolutely hillarious! It should go to a list of compulsory reading before one starts writing fanfiction :-)

You hit it again! I'm simply delighted and not able to scrub the big satisfied grin off my face.

How does one adequately laude such a profound and covincing essay? You truely deserve one of the Great Eagles to fly over middle-earth to sing your praise!

What a blissful, intelligent and yet entertaining approach to a topic that one way or the other concerns every reader and writer. It's refreshing to the mind after reading too much of all that oversweet canon-tearing stuff one can read on the net, to know that help is on the way, that there is a cure for all my woe, at least as far as LOTR fanfiction is concerned. (And being a reading-addict, not able to quit the story once I've started reading it, but rather feeling forced to read on till the bitter end, I'm sometimes suffering incredibly.ROTFLMAO)

Splendid! Reading your essay feels like dunking my head into the cold clear water of the rain barrel after a night with much too much liqueur.

Thank you for curing my mental hang-over!

Ch. 1: Chapter 1

A great work! :) Although I think that now I am experienced enough to avoid traps of MS, it is good to read this, if nothing else - because it is a great essay. I really enjoy reading this, it is written very wisely.

Reading this, I remember my own beginnings. :) I created an OFC that has some elements of MS. *blush* But I think that she is not a big, total MS. In my own defense, I'll say that, when I wrote that first story, I didn't even know what fanfiction was and I didn't know that other people wrote such stories. *blush* Much less I knew what a Mary Sue was. *laughing*

I think I remember seing a blond girl with blue streaks, btw! *laughing*

Some day, if you'll have some free time, I'd ask you to give your judgement of that OFC I invented; it is an old thing and I don't write that any more, but I am simply curious what you'll say of her.

Ok, enough rambling now. I'll just repeat once again - great essay! :)
