My Immortal is a Harry Potter-inspired fanfiction that is centered around Ebony “Enoby” Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way, a 17-year-old vampire who attends the “Hogwarts School” in England. Upon its digital publication in 2006, the story became notoriously known as “the worst fanfiction ever written” for its large number of spelling and grammatical errors, as well as unwarranted depictions of sexual acts and allusions to popular emo rock bands such as My Chemical Romance and Evanescence. As a result, My Immortal has led to a series of copycat fanfictions and dramatic readings of the original manuscript.
