"“I luv u TaEbory.” he whispered sexily and den we fel aspleep lol."

How gorgeous is that writing? I mean damn, I'm surprised the person who wrote this isn't an international bestselling author. I wish I had that much talent.

And the way they expertly wove the story was so beautiful and the characters came to life with every paragraph. You will lose yourself in this exhilarating and inspiring story of paranormal love.

I just discovered this today, and I couldn't help but think that I had lived under a rock in the fan-fiction world!! Apparently this is the worst fanfic ever and I decided to check it out. And then I decided that I didn't want to read it, so I listened to dramatic readings online.


Tara Gilesbie, you are the biggest troll on the Internet.

The main character is this girl called Ebony Dark'ness Demen...more

Oh lord, this is actually on Goodreads?

Well, I'm just going to give this five stars. Don't get me wrong, it's atrocious. But personally, I believe that it's meant to be that way and that it's the most brilliant troll-fic ever created. Even if I tried to create something this bad, I don't think I could come up with something so hilarious. And well, it's just a classic.

Read it with your friends. Do dramatic readings of it. Play the My Immortal Drinking Game.

But don't do it with actual alcohol beca...more
There is no kind way to say this. This is complete and utter shite.

This is the story of Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven TARA Way, who also goes by Enoby or Eboby. She is a Hogwarts student. Slytherin, of coarse. Because that's where all the goffs are. She is so goff that she eats Count Chocola with blood instead of milk, with another glass of blood on the side. She needs the blood because she’s a vampire and because she slits her wrists, preferably while she cries tears of blood and drinks the bl...more
I can't. Stop. Laughing.

Just some quotes for my darling friends:

- "I felt a little depress then, so I slit my wrists. I read a depressing book while I waited for it to stop bleeding"

- ""Then he put his thingie in my you-know-who"

- ""He was so sexy that my body went all hot when I saw him kinda like an erection only I'm a girl so I didn't get one you sicko."

- "My name's Harry Potter although most people call me Vampire"

- "then he put his boys thingie down there and WE HAD SEX"

- "he had a really b...more
My Immortal. Well, what can one say about My Immortal?


Yeah, that about covers it.

But, seriously, this is a really fantastic, unique work of literature. It deals with really srs issuez such as addiction, clique rivalry, sexuality, depression, suicide, paedophilia, rape, and grammar.

It also has tons of lovable characters. There's Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, our protagonist, to whom we all can relate. She must deal with the fact that everybody wants to have sex with her, everyone being jeal...more
After reading

What have I done with this evening? Heh. No fucking idea.
I feel the urge to scrub my eyes with sandpaper and soak my brain with bleach. This has scarred me forever.
But I recommend it all the same, for the simple reason that, as a troll-fic, it's the most brilliant thing ever written. And I refuse to think of it as anything else, because then I'd have to slit my wrists. Ristz. And drink all of my blood.

I need to spend some time in a mental health facility.

Make no mistake, I think that this is one of the finest works of literature ever written.

Tara Gilesbie - whatever the truth behind her identity may be - has crafted a work of fan fiction so deliriously and compulsively entertainingly readable that one cannot deny her raw talent. Fusing elements from Harry Potter, geek and goth cultures this work defies expectation and convention. It's a masterfully queer text, not just in the way that it explores and celebrates the bisexuality of its central cha...more

Nemo and YAL, I thank blame you.

Dramatic reading FTW.

I can't decide if that was the work of a genius troll or a deranged tween.

Either way I haven't laughed so hard in months.

My Immortal has it's own Good Reads page. Seriously?

For those of you who haven't read this little gem on, don't. The grammar is headache inducing enough and half of the time I can't figure out what the heck was supposed to be going on.

The thing I do recommend though is going to Youtube and watch some of the dramatic rereadings of it. If you're in need of a smile or to reassure you that you're not a dumb ass this crap fiction will do it for you.
One thing you can conclude from Tara Gilesbie and her piece of crap so-called writing is that she and My Immortal are an endless source of hilariousness, which will go on for as long, as the internet exists.

The writing, characters, spelling and syntax are so absurd that it borders on the impossible and I honestly believe we have gotten our hands on a good mystery - is the writer truly a little girl with no sense of English or plot or is it merely a troll deciding to write this for the lulz?

First of all, a little background story: I’ve been writing for over ten years now and recently sent in a completed novel to a professional editor. The verdict was not good. My prose was okay but almost everything else (character, conflict, world-building etc) still needed a lot of work. I was so heartbroken I felt like giving up... but then I read this book!

Ms Gilesbie has rekindled my love of writing.

Ah, yes. On the surface you may think that this is the most poorly-written piece of trash you h...more
Anastasia [I'm Wonderstruck...]
Ohoho MY.

Did I really read that?

Was this a joke? Was it a parody? Siriusly (get it, because this is HP FF?); could someone tell me what this thing is?

Well, if this is legit—and it sure looks to be (heck, it's on GOODREADS! It SHOULD be legit!)—here is what I will say:

Dear Aspiring Authors,

Please, please, please do not write this way. If you have trouble with spelling/grammar, ask someone for help. If English is not your first language (and I know it must be hard to learn if it isn't), write it

So... Today I had the great privilege/misfortune of finally reading this book, or listen to it at all as my friend read it to me. (Seriously, it makes it infinitely funnier) So after everything I've heard about this book, I knew that I needed to prepare myself first, so after having a good lunch and equipped with a sizeable coffee I was ready...


So the story starts with the main character introducing herself, Miss Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way (Trust me, it's not important you remember all o...more

So, terrible yet so hilarious in it's failure. This book will literally make you roll on the floor laughing. A word of advice, DO NOT do the drinking game with alcohol unless you want a one way ticket to comaville. A must read for anyone who has a sense of humor when it comes to atrocious Mary sue Harry Potter fan fiction. I like this fan fiction because It is clearly a joke that is not supposed to take itself too seriously. also if the typos and poor grammar make your head hurt, h...more

Do I give it a high rating because of how much I laugh, or do I give it a low rating because of how bad it is?

This book....

This book is perhaps the most beautiful piece of literature I have ever laid my eyes upon..

It is so beautiful, it makes me want to cry... well, maybe not crying, but sweating through my eyeBALLS

[image error]

See? Sweating through my eyeballs.

The beginning of it is the best opening ever. This is the kind of book you want your children to read. It will definitely get them into Harvard.

From our main character Enoby Way, to the non canon goff Harry, it's beautiful. Which is why I'm going...more

Excerpt from Encyclopedia Dramatica:
My Immortal is the most famous, notoriously bad fan fiction ever written. Based very loosely in the Harry Potter universe and featuring the blatant Mary-Sue protagonist Ebony (or often times "Enoby") Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, it reads like a detailed list of everything a fanfic author could ever possibly do wrong, only taken to exaggerated, horrifying extremes. Written by super-tard Tara Gilesbie, My Immortal was originally posted to sometime in 2006, but...more

Shelves: what-the-hell
I had just created a shelf called "what the hell" to hold this "book".

To be honest, I have never read through My Immortal, aka THE WORST FANFICTION EVER, but I have to tell you aside from the outrageous Mary Sue issue; to read a book about a vampire Harry, handful of Goth kids and Satanists among J K. Rowling's Harry Potter crews actually sounds so much fun...

Recommends it for: Not even my worst enemy

I can't do it. This is truly awful. I'm going to cut my losses short and throw in the towel before it causes irreparable damage.

I did get to page 20 - that has to be an accomplishment in itself, right? I'm surprised I even lasted that long. My head hurts like hell though!! Excuse me, while I go get a block of ice to numb the pain.
This is, without a doubt, the greatest piece of fan literature ever created. It deserves an award of some sort.

Occasionally in life you will find things that not only make you laugh, but make you laugh so hard you struggle to breathe for subsequent minutes. This book is not one of those things for it cannot be described as a mere thing. It is a monument, nay, a milestone in everyone's lives. Everyone remembers the day they were introduced to what has been dubbed "the worst fanfic in the world". Much like Marmite, you will forever love it or hate it with a passion that burns brighter than the thousands of...more

Tara Gilesbie is one of two things: either the most RETARDED or most BRILLIANT author EVER-at least within fan fiction that is. I've read this fic serveral times and behold-my brain has yet to liquify and seep out my ears! I hope...

I don't even know how to begin to describe this ummm..tale. It's absurd and horrific beyond human capability and that is the very essence of it's beauty. The controversy, over whether or not Tara is an utter troll, fails to hinder me from indulging in this devastating...more

While it warrants the debate if this is the greatest act of trolling in Internet history, My Immortal is an excellent example of Fan Fiction. The story hinges on that of a Mary Sue character, Ebony Darkness Dementia Raven Way. Ebony is every goff girl's dream: popular and hated at the same. I recommend reading this book as written as it improves the elements of the story ten fold as the grammatical errors change a serious moment into a hysterical one.
That's a damn piece of junk. *rolls eyes in disgust*
Don't even think twice about wasting time on it.
Accursed fanfic writer with no sense of originality,
grammar, syntax, spelling etc whatsoever. It's so
absurd, it actually borders on obscenity, an insult
to all writers all over the world. If there was a
minus rating I'd give it -10000000..........0³³
That's how bad it is.

{March 28th, 2014} THE REVIEW

I read this a while was a hilariously groanfest for me. Just ohmyundying.... Sure at first I was like "haha, it can't be THAT bad, could it?" Boy was I ever quickly proven wrong. Grammar people and all that jazz that comes with the systematics of languages will quickly get a headache from trying to decipher its contents. I've spent the last four something years dealing with nothing but English, even took a linguistics course among others that can add to the...more

Tara Gilesbie, aka XXXbloodyrists666XXX, is the infamous creator of My Immortal and its primary author. The first 15 chapters were edited by Raven, aka bloodytearz666.

It's still under debate whether or not Tara was genuine or actually trolling the fandom with her erroneous story, My Immortal. Whatever her intention, she has certainly left an impression.
