- —From the opening of My Immortal
My Immortal is an infamous Harry Potter fanfiction written by a member of the website fanfiction.net using the alias "Tara Gilesbie" AKA "XXXbloodyrists666XXX" sometime before 2010. This fanfiction has gained a certain notoriety and a cult following amongst members of the Harry Potter fan community for being one of the worst of its type, though question remains whether the fanfic was created honestly or was the intentional work of a deliberate and informed troll. The story is known for numerous spelling mistakes, gratuitous sex scenes, "leet" language, and a strange plot that involves torture, time travel, goth concerts, etc.
To date, the re-posted version of the story has received nearly 900 reviews at fanfiction.net and was said to have received over 10,000 before being originally removed.
The plot, or lack thereof, focuses on a seventh year member of Slytherin House named "Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way," (though she does misspell her name as "Enoby" frequently) a "Mary Sue" character who is forced by "Vlodemort" to kill Harry "Vampire" Potter and then travels back in time to make him fall in love with her. Things continue in an odd pattern from there.
Many of J.K Rowling's original concepts for the characters have been changed. Harry, Ron, and Hermione have been moved to Slytherin House, and Hagrid is no longer the groundskeeper, but a Hogwarts student. Various characters have also been given new nicknames. Harry Potter is now called "Vampire", Hermione Granger is now called "B'loody Mary Smith", and Ron is now called "Diabolo". Many of the major characters are now vampires and have also converted to satanism. Snape and Lupin are also portrayed as sexual deviants who videotape Ebony while she is in the bathtub.
