** It's only too easy to see the "preps" as the good guys and the "goffs" as the bad guys. After all, the "goffs" are all utter jerks and we never see the "preps" do anything to deserve the treatment they get. In particular, the fic wants us to see Britney as the AlphaBitch and Enoby as the CoolLoser. But who's the one judging the other for how she dresses? Who's the one who sits by and takes the other's abuse without retaliating until the end? Who's the one gets [[GirlPosse followed around by a large group of friends]] while the other one always seems to be on her own? The only time Britney acts like the AlphaBitch is towards the end of the story when she [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext breaks Snap, Loopin, and Hargrid out of Azerbaijan]] and tells Ebony that Voldemort "will, like, totally kill your friends." And Ebony immediately [[DisproportionateRetribution tortures]] her afterwards.

** Marty [=McFly=]'s RougeAngleOfSatin name is "Morty" much like [[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty a very famous]] {{Expy}} of his. Even the Wiki acknowledges this by having the picture on him being a StylisticSuck edit of a "goffik" Morty.

** If one examines the later chapters, it actually looks like she was making an effort to improve, though, not by much.

*** Specifically, Tara actually said dubya, which is a nickname for George W. Bush. Given the time when the My Immortal was written, it's very likely she actually is American from the South. This explains a lot about her.

** One of the biggest interpretations of ''My Immortal'' is the fact that whether or not it ''is'' a shining example of TrollFic or one of the most infamously bad fan fics out there. As the years went by following the fic, the internet has slowly put together that it ''may'' be a carefully orchestrated and intentionally bad fan fiction, as most began to note how certain words ("come"/"came" is an example) are put intentional, how certain elements in the fan fiction ''had'' to come out if Tara had read some rather grand novels (such as the reference of LordOfTheRings), ect ect. Nobody really knows and the lack of update of the fan fiction has caused it to be the most questionable fics in the internet.
** Tara also mentioned she was from Abu Dhabi, or whatever, and if this is true, it could certainly explain many things about the fanfic being her not understanding American culture and British. It's also possible this is why she doesn't understand what gothic actually means.

** One of the biggest interpretations of There is some debate on whether ''My Immortal'' itself is the fact that whether or not it ''is'' a shining example of brilliant TrollFic or one of the most infamously bad fan fics out there. As the years went by following the fic, the internet has slowly put together just a plain terrible fic. The consensus seems to be that it ''may'' be a carefully orchestrated and intentionally bad fan fiction, the former, as most began to note how certain some noticed a pattern in the odd choices of words ("come"/"came" is an example) are put intentional, how (such as "come"/"came"), that certain elements in of the fan fiction ''had'' to come out if Tara had read some rather grand novels fic (such as the reference of LordOfTheRings), ect ect. LordOfTheRings reference) could only show up if the author had read novels above the reading level the spelling suggests, and much more. Nobody really knows knows, and the lack of update of updates from the fan fiction has caused it to be creator (both on the most questionable fics in fic and on her whereabouts) adds fuel to the internet.
fire.
** Tara also mentioned she was (probably) from Abu Dhabi, or whatever, and if this is true, it could certainly explain many which means that a lot of the weirder things about in the fanfic being her not could be chalked up to a lack of knowledge or understanding about American and British culture in general and British. It's also possible this is why she doesn't understand what gothic actually means.goth culture in particular.

* IdiotPlot: The TriangRelations between Ebony, Vampire, and Draco. As manwithoutabody's DramaticReading points out:
--> "So here's a girl that claims to love bisexual men, and here are two bisexual men, and all three of them are into each other. [[OneTrueThreesome There's an easy solution to this, guys.]]"

** A surprising piece of evidence that it was intentional: the constant references to MyChemicalRomance. Sure, at first glance, they're about as "goff" as you can get. But they constantly resist the label 'emo', and when you listen to some of their songs, particularly "Teenagers", you can hear that they're criticizing people that claim not to be 'mainstream' but are simply conforming to a different norm; that's exactly what My Immortal does, [[AccidentalAesop whether it intended to or not.]]

*** Not to mention that Tara, who can't spell simply words like "clapped" and "seductively" somehow managed to come up with the correct spelling of "Azerbaijan."
