* Tara is actually a brilliant author who wrote a {{Fanfic}} that was the epitome of SoCoolItsAwesome. Her editor hijacked the brilliant fanfic and turned it into the parody we're reading now. For some reason.

[[WMG: "My Immortal" is the mad ravings of a regular girl who went insane after finding out that the the butter she was eating wasn't real butter]]

This is what happened:

A Christian girl named Tara leads a perfectly normal life; loving family, great group of friends, Harry Potter books to enjoy, and a massive love of butter.

So one day, she goes downstairs to the kitchen for her regular breakfast: Count Chocula cereal, Orange juice, and buttered toast. As soon as she takes a bite of her toast, she notices something off about the butter she is eating. When she asks her mother about it, her mother says that they were out of the regular butter they usually get, so she got the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" original version.

After learning this, Tara goes insane. She kills her dog, stops going to church (saying that she converted to Satanism), and starts talking in unintelligible textspeak. Her parents take her to several psychologicalists who, convinced that she has gone nutso, send her to a mental institution.

While there, she creates a world where everything is okay, and she still has her precious real butter. This world changes from a happy place created from memories of her old life to a fantasy alternate universe of the Harry Potter canon, born from her new, transformed, twisted thoughts on the book series, in which she is the heroine and everyone loves her. She regularly goes to the computer room at the asylum she's in; to post her created world online, as both of her mental worlds collide and she believes that she is a regular girl who is writing her magnum opus; an amazing Harry Potter fanfiction.

That's what really happened.

It makes perfect sense if you don't think about it.

*** "Yes, those people are called trolls." That description does not describe a troll; it misses the essential element of doing something for the sole purpose of getting a rise out of others. If Tara meets the description above, that does not make her a troll. If she meets that description and her motive is "to get a rise out of others", ''that'' would make her a troll. If she ''isn't'' a troll, her motive isn't as hard to grasp as you're making it sound. Who needs more motive than genuinely thinking their work is brilliant and that they're God's (or Satan's, I guess, if you're Tara) gift to readers everywhere? If Tara's legit, she's just too arrogant to see that her writing is horrible, even in the face of astounding evidence. It really is that simple.

[[WMG: My Immortal was meant to end where it ended with a BolivianArmyEnding]
1. She said there was only going to be 2 or 3 more chapters 2 chapters from the end. In fact she'd been talking about ending My Immortal for a while.
2. She gathers together all the characters in the last chapter, including characters that hadn't been in the fic for a while, like McGoogle.
3. This is the first time in the fic where Enoby actually tries to kill Volxemort.
4. There's something about how dramatic the last few sentences are that makes me think that she was sincerely trying to end it where she did. "I just wanted to go to the common room and slit my wrists with mi friends while we watched Shark Attack 3 and Saw 2 or do it with Draco, but I knew I had to do something more [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfFunny impotent.]] ABRA KADABRA!11111 I shooted." There's actually buildup to the final line, you guys!

** Excuse me? Are you implying that I, an amateur writer, a member of the male half of mankind, with actual knowledge of sexual reproduction, and above all, a nerd, wrote this nonsensical garbage which has been disavowed by every law of reality?.......yeah, alright.

[[WMG: ''My Immortal'' was written by TommyWiseau]]
Can't believe no one's thought of this one yet! First and foremost, there's Tommy's love of vampires- he was going to have a scene in TheRoom where Johnny was revealed to be a vampire and fly off the roof, but he didn't have the money in the special effects budget for it. Second, there's a lot of plot points that are brought up and then never mentioned again; the scene in TheRoom where Lisa's mother announces she has breast cancer, only for it to never be mentioned again, bears resemblance to the scene in ''My Immortal'' where Draco apparently killed himself, yet is alive and well in later chapters with no explanation. Third, pretty much every character in both works swears like a sailor. Fourth, Tommy's loose grasp on the English language would no doubt contribute to the endless spelling and grammar errors in the fic. And last but not least, there is the multitude of awkward sex scenes in both works that prove that the writer has no idea what sex is like.

[[WMG: "My Immortal" is a legitimate parody of the gothic scene]]

This troper was part of the gothic scene in germany quite a while and can perfectly imagine a parody going overboard like this. Many Goths just love Harry Potter, as well as hating posers and preps, the combination is genius. At least that is what i was thinking reading this abomination. To give tiny examples, all the bands mentioned are played in discos and gain spotlight in magazines while no one genuine likes them, as well as the problem members of the scene have to face with oversexualisation of the style.
Put this together with having some fun writing it, then having fun trolling the flamers until it becomes too dumb / boring, at which point it suddenly ends. Tara (considering the youtube account i found is genuine) seems a bit young, still i like my theory better than, well, everything else.
