- —From the opening of My Immortal
My Immortal is a Harry Potter fanfiction written by a member of the website fanfiction.net using the alias "Tara Gilespie" sometime before 2010. This fanfiction has gained a certain notoriety 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, "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 mispell(?) her name as "Enoby" frequently) a "Mary Sue" character who forces "Vlodemort" to kill Harry and then travels back in time to make him fall in love with her. Things continue in an odd pattern from there...
