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 WebOriginal/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]].

* BerserkButton: [[Literature/{{Redwall}} Stiffener Medick]] is fed up with jokes about his UnfortunateName. He's even threatened [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum Agent]] [[AnythingThatMoves Luxury]] over it.
* BlackComedy: In spades.
** Of the student at the Literature/{{Redwall}} OFU who sang the Hedgehog song[[labelnote:*:]]A song by Creator/SirTerryPratchett all about bestiality[[/labelnote]], they did not find all the pieces.
** At the ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' OFU, the course on animals of the Ages is taught by a RedShirt from one of the tie-in novels, who was killed by invasive predators on one of these Ages.
** At the ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'' OFU, a jelly monster ran amok on Halloween, killing several of the students (but see DeathIsCheap below).
* ComedicSociopathy: Some of the treatment of the students crosses into this. Sociopathic canon characters can also have their sociopathy PlayedForLaughs.
* 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 [[VideoGame/{{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.
** Which led to some disappointment at the Hogwarts Fanfiction Academy when some students signed up as "Elf", thinking they'd be Tolkien Elves.
*** Of course, students don't get special powers, as a student who signed up as a [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} Bahro]] complained.
** One student at the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' OFU signed up as a hermaphrodite, and got a major surprise the first time she used the bathroom.
* FurryReminder: A student at the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' OFU who signed up as a mouse is horrified to learn that she'll be going into heat every three days.
* GratuitousJapanese: Sakura, a catgirl at the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' OFU, spoke in it, as did a fanfic-generated character replacement for Eedrah at the ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' OFU.
* 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 [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} Camoudiles]]. They are spawned whenever a misspelling occurs of a proper name in that continuum, a practice that subsequently spread to the [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPC]].
* {{Squee}}: A lot of it occurs on the first day. This produces Piercing Squees[[labelnote:*:]]vicious, large versions of whatever squee means[[/labelnote]] in continua where "squee" refers to a person, place, or thing.
* StylisticSuck: The main character is always introduced writing a fanfic that combines several features of badfic in the fandom.
* TrainingFromHell: The usual educational program of an [=OFU=].
