Typed up from handwritten notes by: Drachefly

The author writes:

I met a reader of my very own webcomic
Who said: "Two vast and dissociated character threads
Stand in the filler-desert. Near them on the timeline,
Half non-canonical, a retconned character lies, whose frown
And wrinkled speech bubble and sneeze of cough suppressant
Tell that its artist well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on those lifeless bits,
The mouse that mocked them and the network that fed.
And on the speech bubble these words appear:
'My name is Margaret, Queen of anti-asthma-drug-testing detectives!
Look upon my plotlines, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level filler strips stretch far away."
Which is a pretty drastic exaggeration, I tell you. I can't even take a week off without someone getting fits. Plus, I can't even find that line Margaret supposedly said, and no one aware of both her detective work and her asthma drug testing hobby has tried to pose as Margaret... as far as I can recall. And if such a person did attempt such a thing, I doubt they would say that.

So, can someone jog my memory? I feel there's something I'm missing here.
