* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** 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?
** "Dumblydore". Is he a "poser" just trying to be cool like Ebony thinks? Is he a brilliant [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] ObfuscatingStupidity to manipulate Ebony into destroying "Volsemort"? Or is he just an old, senile guy who does things at random?
** When Enoby used the Killing Curse at the end, did she aim it at Voldemort or herself?
** Satan Bombadil Anderson: Attractive 80s goth or {{Time Travel}}ing ConMan?
* AccidentalInnuendo: Whether it's actually accidental depends on whether the fic actually is a parody or not, but regular words are occasionally "accidentally" spelled wrong and [[FreudianSlip turned into obscenities]], e.g. "Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge" becomes "Mystery of Magic Cornelia Fuck", "Professor Slughorn" becoming "Professor Slutborn", etc.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8B51CF0BD6819969&feature=plcp This dramatic reading]] interprets almost every use of the word "come"/"came" this way.
* AssPull: Many examples. At one point the characters need to find Draco (who Volfemort has bondage, whatever that means). To solve this, Vampire "has an idea" and teleports them into Voldemort's lair. Enoby whines endlessly about stuff much easier to solve than this, like [[{{OT3}} choosing between Draco and Vampire.]]
* AuthorsSavingThrow: It's hard to tell but when Tara explains the fact Dumbledor was calling Ebony and Draco [[OutOfCharacterMoment "Motherfuckers"]] because he had an headache can be seen as an attempt to this.
* BileFascination: Seriously, this was the ''most popular thing'' on [[FanfictionDotNet Fanfiction.net]] if the reviews were anything to go by.
* CrackPairing: Hedwig/Voldemort. [[note]] Well, human!male!Hedwig/young!Voldemort at least.[[/note]]
* CriticalResearchFailure: Tara admits that she bases some of it on the movies because she hasn't read all of the books. This is a very good way of hitting the FandomBerserkButton in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fandom circles, but everyone's too busy laughing to care.
* DesignatedHero: Ebony often does things far worse than any of the so called villains of the story, and the one of the few character traits that actually remain consistent is that she judges your morals by the way you dress.
* DesignatedVillain: Britney doesn't do anything aside from being a "prep". Except in chapter 42 where it's stated by 'Proffessor Trevolry' that Britney freed Snap, Loopin and Hargrid from "Azerbaijan". How or why exactly, Trevolry (and Tara) never goes into.
** Dumblydore takes this UpToEleven. All he does throughout the story is save Ebony and her friends, organize attacks against Volxemort, and protect the preps from Ebony. Of course, you do have to take in that he did such heinous things as get angry at Ebony and Draco for having sex in the Forbidden Forest. [[SarcasmMode Because it's not like discarding all weaponry in a forest with giant spiders and hordes of evil creatures is a bad idea and could get you killed. No, it must be because he's evil!]]
*** That's not even getting into how them having sex in the middle of the forest is bound to piss off the centaurs.
*** To be fair, unlike Britney, he is sort of respected, being frequently described as doing things "wisely" (in reality, said "wise" things are barely above Enoby in terms of intelligence).
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dumbledore!
* FetishRetardant: Pretty much the whole thing. See IKEAErotica.
* FridgeHorror: A literal interpretation of many passages in this story will give you a rather disturbing mental picture. "He put his boys thingie in mine", coming from ''Ebony'', anyone? [[SchmuckBait So try to avoid literal interpretations]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Tara accusing JKR of being a "hamophobe" for not making Harry and Draco a gay couple.
** ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows nd den hairy wil have 2]] [[spoiler:kommit suicide so voldimort will die koz he will rilly be a horcrox!!!!!111]]''
** [[Film/TheRoom "Oh hi."]]
** Ebony saying that she wasn't a slut in chapter ten and then proceeds to have sex in later chapters with a majority of the male "goffik" characters.
* [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]]: Whoever cracked Tara's password and wrote a final FixFic chapter that sorted out all the canon issues and restored logical coherence (or rather, ''introduced'' logical coherence) to the story, and who made a valiant effort to TorchTheFranchiseAndRun before Tara managed to return from a "vocation" in "Englond" and "fix" the situation.
* MemeticMutation: According to Website/KnowYourMeme, [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/my-immortal-the-worst-fanfiction-ever this story has achieved memetic status.]]
** [[OutOfCharacterMoment WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!]]
** ...and Loopin was [[{{Malaproper}} masticating]] to it!
** And there was ______, looking extremely fucking hot.
* {{Narm}}: Oh so much. In the author's notes, Tara often states that the story deals with "sris issus", but all the spelling and grammar mistakes make it unintentionally hilarious.
* NightmareRetardant: Again, the chapter with the "XTREMLY SCRAY" disclaimer.
* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Given the first-person format of the story, we never see exactly how Britney busted Snape and Lupin out of Azkahbian/Azerbaijan/Afghanistan.
* RomanticPlotTumor: Most of the plot is focused on a Vampire/Ebony/Draco LoveTriangle. Even Voldemort forcing Ebony to kill "Vampire" is treated as though it were simply a complication to all the romantic drama.
* RootingForTheEmpire: The villains or characters who oppose Ebony are usually [[HarmlessVillain harmless]] and the heroes are more than likely [[FlatCharacter flat]], as well as [[DesignatedHero so unheroic and unsympathetic]] that people find the villains far more interesting
* {{Sequelitis}}: The original is considered by some to be SoBadItsGood, but most of the parody sequels are just plain painful. No matter how hard many may try, none can match Ms. Gilesbie's literary... um, achievement.
* SnarkBait: Possibly more so than ''anything else'' on this wiki, even ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.
* SoBadItsGood: The main reason to read it is to laugh your ass off at how terrible it is. Nobody's really sure if this was the intent or not, but it's certainly the result.
** 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.]]
* StrangledByTheRedString: Ebony and everybody she hooks up with.
* ThirtySuePileup: Let us count the ways.
** MarySue: Ebony. Just... Ebony. Tara denies it (despite many noticeable Freudian slips in which other characters refer to Ebony as "Tata" "Tara" and "[=TaEbory=]"), and responds to her preppy haters with this:
-->''I sed stup flaming ok ebony's name is ENOBY nut mary su OK!''
** ParodySue: Depends on whether Gilesbie's a troll or not -- if so, one of the best examples.
** PossessionSue: Draco just reeks of this.
** RelationshipSue: From the first chapter, Enoby leeches onto Draco and never lets go.
** SympatheticSue: Ebony [[{{Wangst}} constantly whines]] about how hard her life is.
** JerkSue: She has quite the potty mouth and spends a lot of time yelling at everybody, insulting her friends for no reason, and on occasion laughing at others' misfortunes. But everybody still wants to be around her.
** AntiSue: She seems weak and useless...
** GodModeSue: ...until she kills Voldermort.
** VillainSue: Ebony can be interpreted this way.
** FixerSue: No, Harry, you're supposed to be bisexual! And a goth vampire!
** BlackHoleSue: The entire castle and all its residents are distorted to fit Ebony's views of the world. Not to mention that Marilyn Manson becomes the opening act to her headliner.
** [[LemonStu Lemon Sue]]: [[DrinkingGame Take a shot]] everytime Ebony has sex.
** About the only form of Mary Sue which Ebony doesn't fit is PuritySue[=/=]MarySueClassic. And even there, she never "soils" herself by having sex with another female despite her claims that she's bi, and she's quick to tell us that because she's a girl she didn't get an erection, you sickos. She's also a valiant fighter for Truth, Justice, and the Goth Way, and will defend the world against the preps with her dying breath -- which in the world of Tara Gillespie almost makes her a paladin of IncorruptiblePurePureness.
* {{Wangst}}: Ebony's constant whining. And this gem from Draco:
-->'''"No one fucking understands me!1"''' ''he shouted angrily as his black hare went in his big blue eyes like [[GreenDay Billie Joe in Boulevard of Borken Dreamz]].
* WhatAnIdiot: Ebony/Enoby, despite being told that Draco and Harry were a couple long before Draco and her had "you-know-what", insists on believing that Draco cheated on her. About a paragraph later she has a "brainstorm" and wonders if Draco and Harry dated ''before she started dating Draco.'' Whether this is genuine stupidity on [[MyNaymeIs Enoby's]] part, or the result of Tara forgetting what she just wrote, we may never know.
