I’m not into fan fiction so I don’t really know how a good fan fiction is written. I’ve never written one myself and I’ve only read a few in my life. After reading the fanfic My Immortal I however dare say I now know how a fan fiction should not be written.
My Immortal is loosely based on Harry Potter and has been called “the most famous, notoriously bad fan fiction ever written”. After having read twenty-two out of forty-four chapters of the story I feel a bit more stupid than I did before. I think the horrible story combined with the extremely bad spelling caused some minor brain damage. I’m not sure I’ll ever recover completely. I’ve read it and now I can’t unread it. It will forever haunt my dreams.
For those of you who don’t want to read forty-four chapters of the most god awful story the world has ever been cursed with I here present you a short description and some quotes from My Immortal.
Basically the story is about Ebony (often misspelled Enoby) Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way, a gothic teenage vampire girl who attends Hogwarts. In the story we also meet the gothic bisexual boys Harry “Vampire” Potter and Draco Malfoy, the gothic vampire girl B’loody Mary Smith (Hermione) and goth boy Diabolo (Ron), among others.
Here are some gems of quotes from the story:
“I thought you didn’t have a scar anymore!” I shouted.
“I do but Diabolo changed it into a pentagram for me and I always cover it up with foundation.” he said back
Sudenly a gothic old man flu in on his broomstick. He had lung black hair and a looong black bread. He wus werring a blak robe dat sed ‘avril lavigne’ on da back. He shotted a spel and Vlodemort ran away. It was………….DUMBLYDORE!
We flew there on our brooms. Mine was black and the broom-stuff was blood-red. There was lace all over it. Draco had a black MCR boom. We went back to our rooms and we had you-know-what to a Linkin Park song.)
Voldemort got a dude-ur-so-retarded look on his face. “I hath telekinesis.” he answered cruelly. “And if you doth not kill Vampire, then thou know what will happen to Draco!” he shouted. Then he flew away angrily on his broomstick.
Den I gasped……………………Snake and Loopin were in da middle of da empty hall, doin it, and Dobby was watching!1
I apologize for any eventual brain damage reading these quotes has caused. If you’re however into a gothic vampire version of the Harry Potter universe, or just want to rofl for an hour, here’s the link to the full story.
Personally I’m reading this story because is so bad it’s hilarious. Me, just like many others who have read it, think the fanfic is nothing but trolling but no one truly knows. Perhaps it’s the best example of a unintentionally bad fanfic and perhaps it’s a very successful troll fic
