Hey, check it out! The Fandom's {{Fanfic}} is suffering from SturgeonsLaw! [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Terrible spelling]] [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma and grammar]] is everywhere, {{Mary Sue}}s are making everyone {{OOC}} and {{Squick}}y pairings are being written! We should do something!

Except, what?

Why of course! Bring the fanfic writers who are causing this mess into the canon itself and teach them how to write proper fanfic!

[[FanFic/TheOfficialFanfictionUniversityOfMiddleEarth First done]] by Camilla Sandman for [[Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium Middle-Earth]] in 2002, now offsprings are spawning everywhere. Originally these fanfiction universities required Sandman's approval to become "official", but now you're fine writing one as long as you mention Miss Cam anywhere, and don't write a blatant ripoff.

All [=OFUs=] share a multiverse with the ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum. [=PPC=] agents have dropping by their favorite Official Fanfiction University to "help" since Jay and Acacia visited [[FanFic/TheOfficialFanfictionUniversityOfMiddleEarth The Official Fanfiction University of Middle-Earth]].

'''Tropes:'''
* ComedicSociopathy: Some of the treatment of the students crosses into this.
* DeathIsCheap: Because the students essentially apply through BrainUploading, new bodies can be created with ease.
* ExactWords: The applications take a fiendish delight in {{Deconstructing}} the flowery prose of their "applicants". For instance, one of said writers who said she had "creamy" skin arrived in [[{{Myst}} the D'ni cavern]] with [[BodyHorror literal cream for skin]].
* {{Fangirl}}: Most of the students are the stereotypical "{{squee}}ing fangirl" type, hence they're enrolled to get over it.
* FisherKingdom: Any [=OFU=] for a world with nonhuman sentients will ask "race" on the entrance application. Any fanfic author who fills in [[Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium "Elf"]] or [[Franchise/StarTrek "Vulcan"]] on the form ''will'' be transformed into a member of that race while in attendance.
* GroupieBrigade: Almost every canon character teaching at an [=OFU=] will have a group of students going after him/her.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: There's a pair in the [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3192494/1/Official-Fanfiction-University-of-Redwall Official Fanfiction University of Redwall]], thanks to a typo in an early edition.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: All [=OFUs=] are guarded by mini-versions of a particular animal or enemy from the series, e.g. [[LordOfTheRings Balrogs]], [[Franchise/HarryPotter Acromantulas]], or [[{{Myst}} Camoudiles]]. They are spawned whenever a misspelling occurs of a proper name in that continuum, in a practice taken from the [[ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPC]].
* TrainingFromHell: The usual educational program of an [=OFU=].
