My Immortal is a fan fiction written by Tara Gilesbie and based on the Harry Potter franchise.
It has earned itself the title of possibly being "the worst fan fiction ever written" due to excessively poor grammar, explicit spelling errors, a Mary Sue protagonist, completely non-sensical plot, and OOC-ness.

The story itself has fourty-four chapters and before it got deleted from FanFiction.Net, had over ten thousand reviews, most of them being flames. However, it was revived by TheJadedDolphin on August 2, 2010.
There are several "copycat writers" out there that either pretend to be Tara Gilesbie, or write similar stories while purposely using horrorfyingly bad English skills and Mary Sues.
Many people believe that Tara Gilesbie was a troll parodying Mary Sue writers, or just trying to cause a reaction. It isn't yet fully known if she was trolling or not.
As the fan fiction continues, the use of English gets progressively worse; it is especially visible if you compare the first and the last chapter.
Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way is the name of the main protagonist in this fic. The author often spells her name as "Enoby" instead of "Ebony", and even occasionally named her Tara (possibly proving a self-insert) and even once naming her Tata (typo of the author's name). Ebony (or Enoby) is a "goth" girl at Hogwarts who hates "preps" (people who aren't goths) and "posers" (people who think they're goth, but are not).
As written above, the entire story was revived by TheJadedDolphin on August 2, 2010. In its summary, she stated she classified it as "the most hilarious fan-fic ever, the infamous Mary Sue story, My Immortal".
After a while, it too was deleted and re-revived by xXMidnightEssenceXx on March 16th, 2011. It is summarized as "The infamous WORST FANFICTION EVER posted here, unedited, for ur "lulz"". This version can be found here.
