[[folder:Goths/Goffs]]
Though not by any definition particularly heroic, these are the protagonists of the story. They mainly consist of Ebony and goffic versions of the main characters of Harry Potter. They are distinguished from the rest of the world by subscribing to tastes in clothes, music, and other such things that the author likes. In reality, most of the "goffik" things are in fact not gothic in nature (usually instead being emo or completely unrelated). Thus, the difference between "da real goffs" and "posers" are completely arbitrary.

Tropes present in more or less all goffs:
* DarkIsNotEvil: The author's intention (if she isn't a troll), which she failed miserably at considering they are generally AlwaysChaoticEvil.
* [[DarknessVonGothickname Dark'ness Von Goffikname]]
* EmoTeen
* [[HollywoodSatanism Hollywood Stanism]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Generally varies among them. Enoby is seemingly an actual vampire (see below), while Vampire Potter is just a guy pretending to be one.
* SelfHarm: Cutting specifically. Portrayed in a variety of manners, from the thoroughly stereotypical to the downright bizarre ("OMFS, letz have a groop kutting session!11" said Profesor Trevolry).

!!Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way
The main character of the story. A MarySue pastiche (if you subscribe to the theory that this is in fact a parody fic, rather than something entirely serious), she spends the fic going to GoodCharlotte and MyChemicalRomance concerts and doing it with Draco. She has long, ebony black hair with purple streaks and red tips, icy blue eyes "like limpid tears" (even when they've mysteriously turned red) and only wears clothing from Hot Topic. Also the lead vocalist of a band named Bloody Gothic Rose 666. Often cries and slits her wrists, although this hasn't killed her yet.

Tropes associated with Ebony:
* AlphaBitch: She acts a lot like this, being generally rude, snotty, and followed around faithfully by a clique of other "goffik" people. It's a strange case in which the AlphaBitch is [[VillainProtagonist the main protagonist]].
* AntiHero: Nothing good she does is ''ever'' done for the right reason.
** ByronicHero
** VillainProtagonist.
* AnythingThatMoves: Though she's more of a slut towards guys; her bisexuality is an [[InformedAbility Informed Trait]].
* AuthorAvatar: If it's not a parody.
* BrilliantButLazy: Even Voldemort can't take Ebony in a fight, but it's highly irregular for her to actually do anything useful.
* CommonMarySueTraits
* ClusterFBomb: Typically her first line of defense when confronted by a physical threat (or a situation not going her way).
* DisproportionateRetribution: When she and Britney have a confrontation, Britney makes a few off-hand remarks and mocks Enoby. What does Ebony do in response? Use a curse to torture her.
** Granted, Britney ''did'' [[spoiler:free Snap, Loopin and Hargrid free from "Azkabian."]]
** A more extreme example: When Ebony and "Satan" are making out while taking each others' clothes off and someone tells them that they can't do that (since they're watching a movie in public), Ebony drains her blood.
*** Interestingly, though, the author seems to try to justify the murder, claiming beforehand that the woman was a prep out of nowhere.
* DudeMagnet: "Everyone is in love with me! Like Snape and Loopin took a video of me naked. Hargrid says he's in love with me. Vampire likes me and now even Snaketail is in love with me. [[SoBeautifulItsACurse Why couldn't Satan have made me less beautiful?"]]
* FanHater:[[invoked]] Ebony's hatred of "preps". As far as she's concerned, anyone who doesn't wear black, shop at Hot Topic and listen to the emo bands she likes, is obviously a HilaryDuff fangirl who wears pink and shops at Abercrombie & Fitch. Yes, even the ''male'' characters considered "preps" are essentially HilaryDuff fangirls.
* [[{{Goth}} Goff]]: Seems to think she is.
* {{Hypocrite}}: She talks enthusiastically about [[YaoiFangirl how hot gay guys are]], then accuses Draco of having AIDS (or "[=AIDs=]") when she thinks he's cheated on her with Vampire. Tara also insults the reviewers by calling them "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment gay fags]]".
** She claims to not be a slut, yet she has an orgy in the penultimate chapter.
** Snap and Loopin take footage of her naked. This is treated as wrong. When Snap and Loopin are naked and having sex in the hallway (while Dobby is watching!), she takes a picture and threatens to blackmail them with it. This is not treated as wrong (though to be fair, ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine rarely is).
** She has been cheating on Draco on a number of occasions, and no one really cares when she does. But when Draco did that with Vampire, she instantly chews him out, calls him a "fuker" and everyone backs her up on this. DoubleStandard, indeed.
* IHaveManyNames: Let's see... Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, Enoby Nut Marry Su OK, Enoby, Ebony Dark'ness Dementia TARA Way, just to name a few.
* IcyBlueEyes: "like limpid tears..."
* InexplicablyAwesome: Ebony has no {{Backstory}} -- she might just as well have fallen out of the sky and landed on Hogwarts grounds just before the start of the first chapter.
* InformedAttribute: Draco mentions once that she's bisexual, despite her showing no sexual interest in girls throughout the whole story.
* InformedAbility: She is too good at too many things, but it's never shown what she is good at. In Chapter 22, it is revealed she is also the only person who can kill Voldemort, but after this reveal, nothing is shown on why she is the chosen one. The only place she actually does anything is in bed with someone else.
* {{Jerkass}}
* KaleidoscopeEyes: Probably unintentional. In Chapter 22, her eyes are "crimson", yet three chapters later they're back to "icy blue".
** That said, though, earlier in the story it mentions that she wears crimson contacts upon occasion.
* LargeHam
* MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: Draco's room is all well and good. The Forbidden Forest probably borders the very outer limits of "normal". But a classroom where a class is in session just ''isn't'' the right place to make love.
** She later does it in a ''coffin''.
** There are also two brief incidents which are overlooked due to the NegativeContinuity which occurs right after them. At one point in Chapter 12, Ebony and Vampire find each other in a crowded Hogwarts hallways and, according to Enoby, "jumped on each other and started screwing each other." They stop when Professor [=McGoggle=] yells at them. In Chapter 38, when Enoby and Satan are on their date at the movies, she actually begins to write it out like a typical ''My Immortal'' sex scene in a ''crowded theater'' until a woman interrupts them. After that, they just leave the theater, [[NegativeContinuity Tara apparently forgetting about the clothes they took off and never put back on]].
* MeaningfulName: Besides the Ebony Dark'ness stuff, she (and the story) clearly lives up to the "Dementia" part.
* MoodSwinger: Made all the more... interesting by Tara's BeigeProse hardly ever giving a clue as to why she, for example, suddenly becomes very angry, even though it's written in first person.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The only effects her vampirism seems to have are her [[ImmuneToBullets immunity to bullets]] and her habit of drinking blood. She says she can be killed by a steak and a "c-r-o-s-s", but at another point in the story seems to forget about the cross and wears cross earrings.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Slits her wrists roughly every three chapters with no apparent ill effects. Maybe all the blood she drinks makes up for it?
** She actually does drink a glass of [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment red blood]] whenever she slits he wrists to top herself off after the blood loss. Either that or she [[BloodLust drinks the blood that she's bleeding.]]
* OverlyLongName
* PsychicPowers: Has rather useless visions and can send "telepathetic massages" using her vampire powers.
* PunctuationShaker: Assuming the apostrophe in her name is meant to be there and isn't a comma that died of despair in the previous line.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Most of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' characters appear to have met Ebony sometime prior to the story. [[WordOfGod Word Of]] [[OhMyGods Satan]] even tries to explain why Draco is OutOfCharacter by saying that he already knew her. Oddly, averted with Harry himself, creating one of many continuity problems (apparently, Harry was in her "goff" band before they first met).
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: "Why couldn't Satan have made me less beautiful?" It doesn't help that her actual physical description makes her sound rather unattractive.
* TearsOfBlood
* YaoiFangirl: "bi guyz r sooo sexah!11"

Misspellings: ''Enoby, Ebory, Ebondy, Enony, {{Evony}}, Ibony, Enobby, Enopby, Egogy, Eboby, [[EpicFail TaEbory, Tata, Tara]]''

!!Draco Malfoy
Ebony's boyfriend and Harry, err... Vampire's ex-boyfriend. He's timid, sensitive, and as big of a goff as Enoby. Constantly worries about her leaving him and seeks her reassurance that she'll stay with him about once every three seconds. Once burst into one of Enoby's classes completely naked. Obviously OutOfCharacter.

Tropes associated with Draco:
* CoolCar: A flying black Mercedes-Benz (with the number [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] on the license plate).
* BiTheWay
* BoundAndGagged: Implied (VOLFEMORT HAS HIM BONDAGE!)
* DracoInLeatherPants:[[invoked]] A literal example, when he actually ''wears'' pants.
* DrivenToSuicide: Twice, apparently. The first time, after Voldemort's first appearance, he gets mad at Enoby for not telling her about it. The second time, after Snap did it with him, Enoby doesn't show him sympathy. He [[UnexplainedRecovery gets better]] after both times with no explanation.
* FantasticRacism: Probably the only trait he has that's remotely in character.
* GagPenis: He's hung like a [[SylvesterStallone Stallone]].
* {{Seme}}: To "Vampire"'s {{Uke}}. Though given how both of them seem to cry and slit their wrists 90% of the time...
* UnexplainedRecovery: Inexplicably reappears in the story after Dumbledore says that he's dead. Twice. The first time it appears that Volfemort has him bondage. The second time he just appears when Ebony is looking for him.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Seems to be capable of it in Chapter 15, in which he apparently infiltrates Ebony's advanced Biology class disguised as a pentagram (yes, really) who then proceeds to turn into a black guitar, and then back to his usual form.
** He's also turned into a door once.

Misspellings: ''[[RockyIV Drago]], [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Drako]], [[{{Uncharted}} Drake]], [[RugbyUnion Drico]][[note]]nickname of the Irish centre Brian O'Driscoll[[/note]], [[DonnieDarko Darko]], [[ClashOfTheTitans Dracko]]''

!!Harry "Vampire" Potter
Bisexual goff who's Drago's ex-boyfriend and Ebony's "friend". Replaced his scar with a pentagram which he covers up with foundation. Does not seem to care about killing Volxemort anymore. In fact, his primary concern now seems to be the bizarre LoveTriangle he's in with Enoby and Drako. On the one hand, Enoby is torn between the two of them and both are attracted to her. On the other, Darko and "Vampire" are also attracted to each other which Enoby [[YaoiFangirl finds hot]]. Note how although this triangle causes a great deal of {{Wangst}}, there is ''literally no way Ebony can lose''. Oh, and Enoby also stole the chosen one position he had in the books. Again, OOC.

Tropes Associated With "Vampire"
* AwesomeMcCoolName
* BiTheWay
* CoolCar: Oddly enough, he has a flying black car, too.
* DoggedNiceGuy A possible interpretation of him.
* ManlyTears: Subverted. Not only is he crying and slitting his wrists all the time, he also cries when Snoop is about to torture him. Remember, men ''never'' cry out of fear.
* PermaStubble: "He had a manly stubble on his chin."
* {{Uke}}: To Draco's {{Seme}}. Though given how both of them cry and slit their wrists 90% of the time....
* VampireVannabe: He's not actually a vampire. He just "love[s] the taste of human blood".

!!B'loody Mary Smith (Theoretically ''Hermione Granger'')
Another one of Ebony's goffik friends. Often makes use of GratuitousJapanese, particularly the word ''kawaii'' (or ''[[RougeAnglesOfSatin kawai]]'', rather). She moved to Slytherin after she converted Satanism, which was presumably when she decided to name herself after a cocktail. OOC. (Note, her name is pronounced "Buh-loody")

Tropes associated with "B'loody Mary":
* InNameOnly: The real Hermione is a bookworm, obsessed with getting good grades, and is someone who is clearly her own person. In ''My Immortal'', she doesn't touch a single book and is almost scared when Enoby assumes she is a prep.
** Although when she confesses to killing Willow (and Loopin then [[ILoveTheDead doing it with her body]]), her emphasis on Willow's being expelled as more important is a hilarious moment of actually being in-character.
* GratuitousJapanese: She comes over as a way for Tara to demonstrate of her bad knowledge of Japanese.
** She greets Enoby with "hajimemashite" - you wouldn't say this to someone you've known for a while and are good friends with. It's an introductory greeting.
** "Kawai" would probably be pronounced closer to the word "kowai", which means scary.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: She's appearently either a vampire or "evil".

Misspellings: ''B'loody [[PredatoryBusiness Mart]]'', '''''Boldy Mary'''''

!!Willow
Ebony's bisexual goffik friend and an avatar for the author's best friend Raven. Is randomly killed off half way through following an argument between Tara and Raven, but comes back with no explanation as soon as Tara and Raven patch things up. Likes speaking GratuitousJapanese. Probably the only character whose name is spelled consistently throughout.

Tropes associated with Willow
* OutOfFocus: Was originally Ebony's best friend. Later chapters have this role given to B'loody Mary.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot
* UnexplainedRecovery: As stated above, Willow's unexplained revival one chapter after being murdered and having her [[{{Squick}} corpse screwed]].

!!Ron "[[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Diabolo]]", Jenny "Darkness", [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crab "Crab"]], and Goyle
Four siblings whose dad was a vampire. He "raped them and stuff" before committing suicide by slitting his wrists. As a result, they "got so depressed that they became goffik and converted to [[StanLee Stanism]]". Any resemblance to Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle is entirely coincidental. It's possible that Tara confused Crabbe and Goyle with Fred and George, especially considering she has them set off fireworks from "Wesley's Whizard Wises".

!!Navel/Nevel "{{Dracula}}" Longbottom
Goff who first appears in Chapter 17. Turns out, he was adopted and his real parents were vampires who [[RougeAnglesOfSatin dyed]] in a car crash. Because of that, he turned to "[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Stanism]]". On two occasions, his name is misspelled as ''Dracola''. OOC.

!!Ginny, Sedric, Fred and Gorge
All make brief, inexplicable cameos. It's not clear if Ginny and the above-mentioned Jenny are supposed to be the same person. Sedric isn't actually in the story proper, but is mentioned in an author's note in which Tara confusedly refers to him as though he had been in the previous chapter. She appears to have gotten him confused with Hagrid.

!!Tom Rid
Despite the name, this is apparently not an incarnation of Voldemort. He is a shop assistant (in a 'goffik' shop, of course) who befriends Ebony & co, and who keeps certain items of clothing hidden under the desk so that only the real 'goffs', and not the 'posers', can get them for free. We're betting he doesn't have any idea how capitalism is supposed to work. He makes only a couple of appearances, and then Tara seems to forget about him completely.
* BiTheWay: Apparently, he's "bisezual".
* CampGay: He really likes make-up.
* CasanovaWannabe: Or at least he might have been, had Tara not forgotten about his character.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Punks]]
The story has several references to punks/punxs. According to Tom {{Satan}}'s statements, they seem to be allies of the goffs against the preps.

* TheMissingFaction
* OnlySaneMan[=/=]StopHelpingMe: Presumably why none of them show up, despite supposedly being allies with the goffs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vlodemort and da Death Deelers]]
Da Death Deelers are a group of villains who serve Voldemort in his evil schemes. And their most evil plan in My Immortal is to force Ebony to kill Vampire Potter. They even hijacked 2 MCR concerts that Ebony attended, just so that Voldemort can yell at her for not participating in his plan. Voldemort's main Death Deelers are Snap, Loopin and Snaketail.

The Death Deelers may, or may not, bear any similarity to the Death ''Eaters'' from Harry Potter canon.

* AGoodNameForARockBand: OOU example; dramatic readings often comment on "Vlodemort and da Death Dealers". That they first show up disguised as MyChemicalRomance doesn't help.
* DeathDealer: [[IncrediblyLamePun Geddit?]] Averted since they don't use cards as weapons.
* LatexPerfection: The masks they wear to disguise themselves as members of MyChemicalRomance.
* MasterOfDisguise: Voldemort and his flunkies successfully disguise themselves as Gerard Way and company on at least two occasions.

!!Voldemort/Tom {{Satan}} Bombodil
The BigBad of the story. His EvilPlan is to make Enoby kill Vampire by giving her a gun and telling her to shoot him. If she doesn't, Voldemort will kill Draco, but he doesn't really follow through with the threat. He spends the entire story trying to make Ebony kill Vampire, even when he simply could kill the guy himself. He also, for some reason, speaks in YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe. He's also seems to be a StarWars fan, since in one chapter he dresses like "Darth Valer".

In his youth, he was called '''Tom "{{Satan}}" [[LordOfTheRings Bombodil]] / [[Film/TheMatrix Andorson]]'''. Ebony travels back in time to seduce him into loving her so that Voldemort would be less evil. And it's revealed Tom Bombodil is also a goff. And he has a goffic band called [=XBlakXTearX=] consisting of Lucian, Serious Blak, James Potter and Snap. They all went to school ... in [[TheEighties the 1980s]]. Tom also knows everything that will happen in the future despite not overtly having any divining ability. When the Dumblydore of the past wants to punish him and ebony for being Satanists, they quickly jump into Ebony's time machine and end up in the present. Here, Tom Satan Bombodil changes into his future incarnation, Voldemort, and teams up with Snap and Loopin to kill Ebony. Obviously OOC.

Tropes associated with Voldemort:
* BadassInANiceSuit: As Tom: "He wuz wearing a blak ripped up suit wif Vans."
* BigBad: Theoretically. He doesn't actually do anything except show up, yell at Enoby, then leave.
* BiTheWay: His younger self was in love with Hedwig (who is here [[HedwigAndTheAngryInch a goffic blonde bi guy]], not an owl), and has no qualms about having sex with Draco and Harry. [[spoiler: Doubles as DepravedBisexual because it was adult!Voldemort all along.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Played straight in that the Bark Lord and "Tom Bombadil" are the same people, and inverted by making Tom Rid (see above) a different character.
* CoolCar: Tom "Satan" Bombadil/Andorson (Voldemint's past self) owns a car that looks just like Darko's (which Ebony comments on in the narrative).
* CreepyCrossdresser: In one chapter, it is stated that Ebony could "hear his high heels clacking".
* FaceHeelTurn: Went from being a "goff" to a "prep", which is this in Ebony's world.
** Although just how 'prep' he is in the present is debatable - although he wears all in black and high heels, it's obvious that "he wasn't gothic", is apparently a scary, which appears to be a 'goffik' trait (""OMG you guys are like so scary!" said Britney" [sic]), cries tears of blood and has a tragic past in which his "hearth" is "borken", he's still a prep by Enoby's standards. It becomes something of a NecessaryWeasel - the reader can see that Voldemort is 'dark' and therefore a good candidate for goth-hood, but the author/Enoby calls him a prep because he is the BigBad, and preps are the ultimate form of evil.
* HarmlessVillain / OffstageVillainy: The only person he's killed is Hermione's mother and that was in a bit of redundant backstory. In the fic itself, he only threatens Ebony, but does not follow up on his threats.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: "When Voldemint was in Hogwarts before he became powerful he gut his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearth hearth borken]]. Now do you fink he would still become Volxemort if he was in love?"
* PsychicPowers: [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe He hath telekinesis]], [[YouKeepUsingThatWord which lets him read minds]].
* SophisticatedAsHell: Although he speaks in YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe, he also gets a "dude-ur-so-retarded" look on his face.
* [[spoiler:SympathyForTheDevil]]
* VillainExitStageLeft: Most of his appearances result in him running or flying away on his broom.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: "I hath telekinesis." he answered cruelly. "And if you doth not kill Vampire, then thou know what will happen to Draco!" His past self, Tom Bombodil, does not possess this weird trait, but instead talks in the same broken English Ebony and co use.

Misspellings: ''Voldemont, Volsemort, Volcemort, Voldemprt, Vlodemort, Volzemort, Volxemort, Voldremort, Voldimort, Voldement, Volfemort, Voldemint, [[GreenThumb The Bark Lord]], The Dork Lord, [[StarWars Darth Valer]], [[LordOfTheRings Tom Bombodil]], [[Film/TheMatrix Tom Andorson]], [[Music/{{Eminem}} Stan]]''

!!Snap and Loopin
Snap and Loopin are the main lackeys of Voldemort. Their main plan seems to be recording a videotape of Ebony taking a bath, which they can use to blackmail her into killing Vampire. If she refuses, they will spread the tape around the school. Ebony calls them pedophiles, but they didn't do any act related to pedophilia (see below). They are also gay lovers who enjoy "doin it" in the open. Apparently supposed to be the characters '''Severus Snape''' and '''Remus Lupin''', but bear no resemblance to them on even a superficial level.

Snap seems to be the leader of the duo and comes up with most of their plans. Snap also operates solo multiple times in the fic. When Ebony travels 'back in tim', Snap is revealed to have been a close friend of Serious, Lucian, James Potter and Voldemort/Tom 'Satan' Bombodil. But he betrayed them by [[DemonicPossession possessing]] James and causing him to shoot off Lucian's arm, which Ebony prevented when she encountered them in the past. Loopin is more of a follower and enjoys [[RougeAnglesOfSatin masticating]] to stuff.


Tropes associated with them:
* ADateWithRosiePalms: "And Loopin was [[RougeAnglesOfSatin masticating]] to it!". 'Masticating' means chewing.
* AnythingThatMoves
* ButtMonkey: Loopin seems to be this. A good example is when he is tortured for something that only Snap was guilty for.
* CardboardPrison: No matter how many times they are sent away to St. [[FundamentallyFunnyFruit Mango's]] or Abkhazian, they keep coming back.
* CompositeCharacter: Inverted with Snoop in Chapter 30. Apparently his name is just "Snape" (when it's spelled right) and there's a completely different guy named "Serverus", who was probably supposed to be Sirius.
* DemonicPossession: When Ebony travels into the past, James Samaro Potter attempts to shoot Lucian's arm off with a knife. Later, Tara tried to imply Snap made James do this by possessing him, but she actually made James say Snap was possessing '''himself'''.
* DepravedBisexual: Both of them are into Enoby, Draco and Vampire (and, of course, [[UnholyMatrimony each other]]), are ([[InformedAttribute supposed]]) [[AllGaysArePedophiles pedophiles]], and Loopin appearently likes to rape corpses. Yet, in spite of all of that, the only reason Enoby doesn't find them hot is because [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking they're preps]], and Loopin is [[EvenEvilHasStandards shocked]] at Enoby's foursome. Says a lot more about the heroes' sexual depravity than theirs', honestly.
* TheDragon: Snap is this to Vlodemort.
* EvilDuo
* {{Harmless Villain}}s: They spend more time doing it with each other in the Great Hall (With Dobby watching!) than anything else, and only seem to pose a serious threat on one occasion.
* ILoveTheDead: Loopin is allegedly a "necphilak", though it's unclear whether he actually did screw Willow's corpse because [[UnexplainedRecovery Willow appears unharmed in the next chapter]].
* InNameOnly: Snape and Loopin are constantly called preps by Ebony, even though neither of them wear preppy clothing or listen to preppy music.
* InformedAttribute / InNameOnly: A single author's note tells us that Snape/Snake/Snap/Snoop/Snipe's a Christian, but the idea is never mentioned or hinted at again.
* InformedFlaw: Ebony calls them pedophiles, but since she's seventeen and therefore A) not biologically a child and B) over the age of consent, [[CreatorProvincialism which is sixteen in the UK]], their perving on her, while reprehensible, is not pedophilia and they show no hints of actual pedophilia at any point. Plus there's the fact that, in the [[Franchise/HarryPotter Potterverse]], under wizarding law the age of ''adulthood'' is seventeen.
* MadeOfIron: Snape and Loopin are barely fazed when shot a gazillion times by Ebony; indeed, Snap's minor hand injury in the aftermath of the skirmish is attributed to Dumbleydore's wand.
* MatryoshkaObject: Snap [[ShapedLikeItself possessing himself]].
* TheMole: Snap when he was a "poser".
* RonTheDeathEater[[invoked]]
* UnholyMatrimony: They're a couple.

Misspellings: ''{{Snope|s}}, {{Snoop| Dogg}}, [[SnipeHunt Sni]][[ColdSniper pe]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snap,_Crackle_and_Pop Snap]], [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork Sna]][[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid ke]], Serverus, Loopin, [[ThePowerpuffGirls Lumpkin]], Lumpin''

!!Snaketail
The "fat guy who killed Cedric". He tortures Draco and asks to have sex with Ebony, since "in dis he is sixteen yrs old so hes not a pedofile ok". She stabs him in the heart and he runs around while bleeding to death. In a rare demonstration of continuity, he actually stays dead (or at least isn't mentioned again). Probably based on Peter Pettigrew/Wormtail from the real Harry Potter series, but the only things that indicate this is that he killed Cedric.

Tropes associated with Snaketail:

* BigNo: Does one upon being stabbed in the heart.
* FatBastard
* HighPressureBlood: When he's stabbed, blood pours out "like a fountain".
* KilledOffForReal: As mentioned above, he is about the only character who stays dead after being killed.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He has never seen Enoby before, but in the middle of the fight he has with her and Vampire, he confesses his love towards Ebony. He even went as far to ask Ebony to have sex with him.
* LoveHurts: Literally.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Mystery of Magic]]
Another evil faction. Its a mysterious group of wizards that hold alot of power over Hogwarts. They, for example, can and will send anyone they see fit to random places in the Caucasus. The Mystery successfully took over Hogwarts in later chapters by sending Dumblydore and Sinister to the aforementioned region, but after that, [[AbortedArc the faction disappears from the story without explanation]].
Most likely based on the Ministry of Magic from the real Harry Potter series.

Tropes associated with this faction:
* LawfulStupid: Well, at least they try to come off as lawful, even if they fail miserably at it.
* LightIsNotGood: They are preps, so...

!![[GenderBlenderName Cornelia]] Fudged/Cornelio [[FreudianSlip Fuck]]
The Minister for Magic and apparently still male despite the name. Considers Dumbledore incompetent and sends him to "Azerbaijan", which peculiarly does not endear him to Ebony and friends. Apperantly has a very short fuse since he took over potions class once, but stomped away angrily after Ebony & co talked openly in class.

Tropes associated with Cornelia/Cornelio:
* TheCavalry: Surprisingly. Trevolry mentions off-handedly that he was coming to "help every1" during the climax of the fanfic.
** TheCavalryArrivesLate: What probably would have happened if the fic actually continued, assuming Tara wouldn't have forgotten that he was coming.
* GenderBlenderName: Played straight and averted. Sometimes he is called Cornelia, but other times he is called Cornelio.
* NoIndoorVoice: All his lines end in exclamation marks.
* ObligatorySwearing: Especially considering Cornelio's original last name was Fudge, which is often seen as the GoshdangitToHeck version of the f-word.

!!Doris Rumbridge/profesor Bridge
An associate of Cornelia Fudge. She first appears at hogwarts to yell at Dumbledore that his Alzheimers is a danger to the school. When Ebony returns from a trip to the past, it appears that Doris Rumbridge became the principal. She also sends Sinistra to "Azerbaijan" for being "too goffik" and brings Dumbledore back to teach her class (about 15 minutes after he left). Assuming she's supposed to be Dolores Umbridge, doing something remotely nice for Dumbledore is really the only part of this which is out of character. But then again, Dumbledore is evil in this fic (most of the time), so maybe it's in character for her after all.

Tropes associated with Doris Rumbridge:
* CulturePolice: She sent Sinistra to "Azerbaijan" for being "too goffik"
* NoIndoorVoice: Whenever she talks, it's in all caps.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat
* SoundEffectBleep: Actually [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud says the word "beep"]] in place of swearing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hogwarts Staff]]
This is a fairly neutral group. Sometimes, Enoby and friends get in trouble, so the staff is portrayed as Evil. At other times, they help Enoby in the war against Vlodemort.

!!Albert Dumblydore
The principal of Hogwarts. He starts out as one of Ebony's enemies by shooting an AtomicFBomb at her and Draco for having sex. After that, he is seemingly neutral, since he helps Ebony as many times as he gets in her way. The times he gets in Enoby's way are probably caused by headaches, as mentioned in numerous author's notes. When Voldemort takes over an MCR concert for the second time, Dumblydore turns to the Goff side and saves Ebony and co.

After his transition to Goff, he paints the 'Grate Hall' black (but apparently painted it pink first). He also tries to befriend Ebony and the other Goffs, but is shouted at because he is a 'poser'(someone who tries to be Goth, but really isn't). But he's seemingly a good guy from that moment on.

When Ebony travels back in time, Albert Dumblydore's hatred for Goffs is much worse than in the present time. It was so bad, that he sent any Goff he saw in the school to Akazaban.

Unlike his canon counterpart, this Dumbledore isn't concerned at all about the war between good and evil. He even lets his students rot at the hands of Voldemort if he doesn't like them. He is also quickly intimidated by students who shout at him. Heavily OOC.

Tropes associated with Dumbledore
* AtomicFBomb: "[[MemeticMutation WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!]]"
* BlondeGuysAreEvil: In the 80's, he appearently had blonde hair, and was "mean to goffs and punxs", which are the protagonists of the story. He also sent students to "Abhkazian" if they misbehaved...and that was the ''lucky'' option.
* TheCorrupter: He "corrupts" Rumbridge in one chapter, whatever that means.
* DeanBitterman
* EvilLaugh: "He laughed in an evil voice."
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Ebony and friends are shocked that Dumbledore ''dares'' to [[FanHater have different tastes in music than them]]. And in their minds, this depravity ''obviously'' eclipses the number of times he has saved the lives of sympathetic characters.
* HarmlessVillain: Spends more time chasing off Vlodemort than anything, and in an AvrilLavigne cape, no less.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He's a prep, then a goff, then a poser, then a prep again, then a goff again.
* HeroAntagonist: Once you get over the fact that he's a poser, he's really not that bad a guy.
* IncomingHam: You get 3 guesses as to which line makes him this.
* {{Jerkass}}: Only when he has a headache.
* LightIsNotGood: He's an Avril Lavigne loving prep obsessed with pink, even as a poser. Also a more straight example in his youth than even the other preps, according to the description of his 80's self.
* ObligatorySwearing: Again, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!"
* RonTheDeathEater[[invoked]]
* [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry You Wouldn't Like Me When I Have A Headache]]: Whenever Albert Dumblydore has a headache, he starts acting like a jerk.

Misspellings: ''[[InherentlyFunnyWords Dumblydum]], Dumbeldore, Dumbelldore, Dumbledum, Dumbldore, Dumbledor, Dumblydor, Dubleodre, Dumblehor, [[{{Adorkable}} Dumbeldork]], Dumblydore, [[InherentlyFunnyWords Dubblydore]], Dubledork, Dumbledork, Dumble[[DarkerAndEdgier dark]], Dumble[[FreudianSlip whore]], Dumbledoree''

!!Hargrid
[[MemeticMutation HE MAY BE A HOGWARTS STUDENT... BUT HE IS ALSO A SATANIST!]] In this fanfic, Hargrid goes from the gamekeeper into a Hogwarts student for no clear reason. He also switches sides with each passing appearance. One time, he's a Goff who helps Enoby against evildoers such as Snap and Loopin. The other times, he's a Prep that tries to harass Ebony. OOC either way.

Tropes associated with Hargrid:
* BadassDecay:[[invoked]] In canon, Hagrid is stated as very physically strong and can withstand spells that are deadly to other wizards. Here, Vampire and Draco beat him up sexily.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: ''Really'' doesn't know which side he's on. In his first appearance, he's a member of Ebony's band. In his second appearance, he seemingly tries to scare away Snap and Loopin (who are harassing Enoby) by confessing that he is a satanist. Later in the story, he tries to poison Ebony with an Amnesia potion (probably amortentia potion, which in the real books is a love potion). In the end, he seems to be on Enoby's side again.
* FlyingBroomstick: Possesses one of those, but it doesn't seem to fly. That doesnt stop him from using it to run outside.
* LargeHam: I MAY BE A HOGWARTS STUDENT... BUT I AM ALSO A SATANIST!
* PissTakeRap: Sings a "gothic version" of a [[Music/FiftyCent 50 Cent]] song at one point.

Misspellings: ''Hargrid, HAHRID, Hargirid, Hargrif, Hairgrid''
Actually, he isn't called by his real name (Hagrid) even once, so its safe to say Hargrid is his name here.

!!Proffesor Sinister/Trevolry
The only goffik teacher in the school. Professor Sinister a.k.a. Trevolry (the two are inexplicably interchanged for the same character) is a half-Japanese half-Vampire and is Ebony's favorite teacher. The subject she teaches is called Deviation (which is probably meant to be Divination). She is the person who tells Ebony to go back in time to seduce Voldemort.
Later on in the story, Professor Sinister gets addicted to "Volxemortserum" and asks Ebony to find a cure for her addiction. Professor Sinister also gets send to Azerbaijan by the Mystery of Magic for being too Gothic but returns at Hogwarts without explanation. OOC and often OON(Out Of Name). (The names derive from Professors Sybill Trelawney [Divination] and Aurora Sinistra [Astronomy].

Tropes associated with Professor Sinister/Trevolry:

* CardboardPrison: Sending Professor Sinister to Azerbaijan is not a good way to get rid of her.
** Maybe she was going to be imprisoned in [[ModernWarfare Al-Asad's safehouse]].
* CompositeCharacter
* GratuitousJapanese: The reason Sinister is half-Japanese is probably to justify the use of this trope.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Her mother is a Vampire.
* NWordPrivileges: Because she's a goth, she can call Ebony [[CountryMatters the c-word]] and mean it as a term of endearment.
* SuddenNameChange: She is called both "Professor Trevolry" and "Professor Sinister" interchangeably. In ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' Professors Trelawney and Sinistra are two separate characters, but in the fic it's clearly meant to be the same person.

Misspellings: ''[[FrankSinatra Sinatra]], Sinistor, Siniaster''

!!Professor [=McGonagall=]
Seems to do little beyond getting mad at Ebony and Draco for MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces. Thus, actually pretty in-character and an unintentional AudienceSurrogate.

* BigStupidDoodooHead: Using these is her biggest deviation from canon. Just imagine Maggie Smith yelling things like "STOP IT NOW, YOU HORNY SIMPLETONS!" and "You mediocre dunces!"
* SternTeacher: As in canon, though her HiddenDepths seem to have been eliminated.

Misspellings: ''Mc[[GogglesDoNothing Goggle]], Mc{{Website/Google}}, {{Preacher}} Mc[[http://gongol.com/ Gongol]], [[TheGoonShow McGoonagle]]''

!![[ChuckNorris Mr. Norris]] and Filch the cat
The "janitor", who owns a cat named Filth/Filch. Mr. Norris apparently is able to see when people hide under invisibility cloaks. The cat might actually be in character. [[EpilepticTrees That or Filth/Filch is a human crawling on all fours and meowing and Mr. Norris is a talking cat. One or the other]].
(Note: In canon, the caretaker is Argus Filch and his cat is named Mrs. Norris.)

Tropes associated with Mr. Norris and Filch the cat:
* CatsAreMean: Filch the cat helps Mr. Norris discover where Enoby and Vampire are hiding.
* CrustyCaretaker: Tara tried to imply this with Mr. Norris, but since Vampire calls him a "preppy little poser sun of a fukcing bich", the act of maintaining his grumpy mood is justified.
* SuperSenses: As mentioned above, invisibility cloaks don't work properly when Mr. Norris is around.

!!Professor [[SonOfAWhore Slutborn]]
The Potions teacher in the '80s. Presumably based on Professor Horace Slughorn from the real books, but is described as a tall gothic man with long hair, instead of short and obese with a bald head like the real character. This makes him OOL (out of look). He makes too short of an appearance to really prove how much OOC he is.

!!The Nurse
The school nurse. She's frequently seen tending to Egogy in the hospital wing, where she frequently winds up after silting her wrists or getting hurt during one of her misadventures. Presumably based on Madam Pomfrey from the books, but its hard to tell how in-character she is because she's never named and has no dialogue.

Tropes associated with the Nurse:
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep / NoNameGiven: She's only ever referred to as the nurse.
* TheMedic
* SchoolNurse
* TheVoiceless
* TookALevelInBadass: An accidental example, but she is once reffered as the '''Norse'''.

''Misspellings: [[HornyVikings Da Norse]]''

!!Dobby
Makes a brief appearance watching "Snake" and "Loopin" do it, then runs away when Snape and Lupin see Enoby. This is his '''only''' appearance in the whole fic. He is also one of the rare characters whose name is spelled correctly throughout the fic.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Preps]]
The counterparts to the goffs. They seem to be defined by a love for bright, cheery colors and pop music roughly equal to the goth's obsession with the color black and emo stuff.

Another type of prep is called the 'poser'. Posers are people who pretend to be Gothic, but are preps (usually they dress semi-"gothic").

Tropes associated with preps:
* LightIsNotGood: Stereotypical preppy fangirls (yes, even the boys) at heart, they are antagonistic nonetheless. Just not much of a threat as Tara hoped they were.

!![[BritneySpears Britney]]
A "prep from "Griffindoor". Regarded as the AlphaBitch from her first appearance, despite doing nothing even slightly reprehensible. However, near the end of the story, it's revealed she allied with Vlodemort and da Death Deelers and freed Hargrid ,Snap and Loopin from Azerbaijan.

Tropes associated with Britney:
* AscendedExtra: She was originally TheGhost, then the occasional ButtMonkey, and eventually, she became Ebony's rival.
* AlphaBitch: She's treated as if she's one, but the reader [[InformedFlaw never actually sees her doing anything really bitchy]].
* ButtMonkey: She is generally picked on and abused by everyone. She, of course, deserves this because [[FanHater she has different tastes in music than the main characters]] and is [[FelonyMisdemeanor therefore evil]].
* DumbBlond: According to Draco, but this was probably because Vampire left him for her.
* InformedFlaw: Being a DumbBlond, among a lot of the things she's accused of.
* TheRival: To Ebony.
* ValleyGirl: Sounded like one during a confrontation with Enoby.

[[folder:Past Goths]]
Ebony interacts with several other goffs during her time travels to the 1980's.

!!Serious Blak (alias [[http://unrealitymag.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/hades.jpg Hades]])
Unlike Harry's godfather Sirius Black, this man is Harry's [[IncrediblyLamePun "dogfather"]]. Also unlike Sirius, Serious was apparently friends with Snape during their school days considering they were in [=XBlakXTearX=] together.

* EverybodyHatesHades: His alias.
* GeniusBruiser: Despite being a hardcore, deprezzed goff, he takes the name of Creator/{{Socrates}}. Whether or not Tara meant for this to evoke the feeling of "smart" is anyone's guess.

Misspellings:''[[TheAbridgedSeries Series]], [[UsefulNotes/{{Fonts}} Serifs]], Sirus, [[Literature/SeptimusHeap Silas]], Film/{{Spartacus}}, Sorious, Creator/{{Socrates}}, [[FreudWasRight Sodomize]]'' and ''Serverus''.

!![[VideoGame/FableII Lucian]] Malfoy
Apparently supposed to be based on Lucius Malfoy. In the fic, he's Draco's father and part of [=XBlakXTearX=] back in the day. Apparently, had one arm until Ebony changed the past so his other arm didn't get shot off. Needless to say, a good guy in this.

Tropes associated with Lucian:
* AnArmAndALeg
* [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Son]]: Draco, apparently, given how Enoby mistakes him for Draco at one point when she goes back to the past.

Misspellings: ''Lusian, Lucan, Luciious, Luscious''

!!James "[[TheRing Samoro]]" Potter
Vampire's father and a member of [=XBlakXTearX=]. [[DisproportionateRetribution Slightly overreacted when Lucian played a song wrong by shooting off his arm]], though it later turned out he was possessed by Snap at the time. Is nicknamed "Samoro", a masculine version of Samara from ''TheRing''.

Tropes associated with James:
* DemonicPossession: Snap was possessing him when he shot Lucian.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Lucian plays a few wrong notes during a concert, and Samoro responds by attempting to ''shoot off Lucian's arm''. But it was later revealed that Snap(e) used DemonicPossession on Samoro to make him do the above, meaning this trope is subverted.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon / ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: He has a knife [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballistic_knife that is able to shoot]].

!!Hedwig(g)
Voldemort's gay lover from the 1980s and the most OOC in the whole story because Hedwig is a female, presumably straight, anti-Voldemort, alive-in-the-1990s ''owl'' in the books. This could be a reference to ''HedwigAndTheAngryInch''.

!![[Film/BackToTheFuture Morti Mcfli]]
Inexplicably appears to give Ebory a "tim machine" so she can go "frowad in tim". His reasons for being present in the PotterVerse and helping Ebony are unknown. In any case, he's OOC for any verse and his "tim machine" does not seem to function like the [=DeLorean=].

Tropes associated with "Morti"
* {{Crossover}}: With ''Film/BackToTheFuture''.
* DeusExMachina
* InNameOnly: His only resemblance to the actual ''Back to the Future'' character is the association with time travel. And even then, his "tim machine" is "blak" (while the [=DeLorean=] is silver) and apparently small enough to carry on his person, eliminating the possibility that he either repainted the [=DeLorean=] or is using the Time Train.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real World]]
!!Tara Gilesbie
The individual who created this mess.

Tropes associated with Tara:
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
** TheCuckoolanderWasRight: She correctly guessed that in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'' [[spoiler:Harry has to let himself be killed, because he is a Horcrux]]. She's hardly the only person who suspected it, but considering her more surreal ideas about the series, it's impressive.
* TheDitz
* EmoTeen
* MultipleChoicePast: Related to AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above, there have been a number of different people who claimed to be the troll Tara, the real Tara, or to have known her and/or Raven while the story was being written. Though it currently seems impossible to determine which (if any) of these accounts hold any truth.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[SilentHill Gillespie]] , Gillesbie, etc...
* TooDumbToLive

!!Raven
Tara's best friend/worst enemy, depending on the day. She worked as Tara's editor before they had a falling-out.

Tropes associated with Raven:
* EmbarrassingFirstName: She dislikes being named Jenny.
* EmoTeen
* {{Flanderization}}: The fans of ''My Immortal'' tend to think of Raven as the OnlySaneMan to Tara's [[TheDitz Ditz]], but (assuming that both of them aren't figments of a someone's imagination) she proves in her own stories and profile page to be at best only a few levels above Tara in terms of ability to write and overall intelligence. In fact, if Tara's "official" Youtube account is of any indication, Raven (if not Jenny's "stage persona") might very well be the crazier and stupider one.
* NietzscheWannabe
* LizLemonJob: She worked as Tara's editor, which stifled some of the RougeAnglesOfSatin. After she left, the story got worse.
* OverShadowedByAwesome: Something of an inversion. Raven actually has two stories of her own, which while entertaining to read for the the same reasons as Tara's, are by comparison much shorter, written with better spelling and other essentials, and demonstrate better knowledge of the source material.

!!You, The Reader
Tropes associated with you, the reader:
* FacePalm: You'll probably give these to yourself when reading this fanfic. In between bouts of laughter, of course.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Reading ''My Immortal'' will cause you madness and/or decay of intelligence.
* TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife: Really, we provide some of the best commentary on My Immortal that you'll ever see.

And if you flame her story, it means you're a no-good ''prep!'' She won't post the next chapter until she gets at least 5 {{god}} [[RougeAnglesOfSatin reviuws]].
