A metaphor for the obstacles preventing someone from entering fandom. In Enchanted Duplicator, they surround the Country of Mundane.

“The Way is hard,” said the Fairy, “for it lies over the Mountains of Inertia which surround Mundane.”

“But those mountains are unclimbable,” protested Jophan.

“To a True Fan anything is possible,” replied the Fairy.”
