Sutcliff apparently
GSNs, or Grumpy Sutcliff Nonnies (sometimes Gleeful Sutcliff Nonnies), are a subset of memers who — especially since the release of the 2011 film The Eagle (loooosely based on the 1954 novel The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff) — may pop up in almost any thread in meme, defending book canon and fandom, recommending fics, and enthusing about other Sutcliff books as well.
