->''"At least I didn't write ''Celebrian!"''
->-- Eliza Diawna Snape

Before [[FanFic/MyImmortal Ebony]] and Rose Potter were even mere [[PlotBunny plot bunnies]], ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fans often cited another name when asked to give an example of a MarySue. That name is Eliza Diawna Snape.

The ''Eliza'' Trilogy, which was written in 2000 by then semi-{{BNF}} Eliza Diawna Snape, is considered a classic ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' {{fanfic}} often mentioned in the same breath as ''FanFic/TheDracoTrilogy'' and ''FanFic/PawnToQueen''. While it was very popular and much praised in its heyday (it was often praised for having writing that was as good as and even ''better'' than Rowling's), it is considered nowadays to be a textbook example of a MarySue.

%comment%Could someone replace this with a better summary?
The trilogy is centred around the titular character and her identical twin sister Diawna Eliza Snape, the half-American daughters of Severus Snape and recent transfer students to Hogwarts, and the prophecy that they are linked to.

[[AC:The trilogy includes:]]

* ''[[http://www.scribd.com/doc/6984190/eBook-Harry-Potter-JK-Rowling-7-Harry-Potter-and-the-Story-of-Eliza Harry Potter And The Story Of Eliza]]''
* ''[[http://www.scribd.com/doc/7023998/Harry-Potter-and-the-Return-of-Eliza Harry Potter and the Return Of Eliza]]''
* ''Harry Potter and the Prophecies of Dredloris''

!!This fanfic provides examples of:

* CreepyChild -- Wyrren borders on this.
* KidsAreCruel -- Eliza and Diawna transfer to Hogwarts due to death threats made by the kids in their old school.
* ISeeDeadPeople -- Wyrren.
* MementoMacGuffin -- The necklace that Eliza's mother gave to her.
* {{Necromancer}} -- Wyrren.
* NewTransferStudent
* OldShame -- EDS has since closed down her FanfictionDotNet account and has apparently withdrawn from the fandom altogether. Because of this and the series' age, it is hard to find complete copies of the trilogy online. The quote above is from the note she left on her old profile page.
* PowerCrystal -- Eliza's necklace has the power to [[spoiler: "grant a second life after death"]].
* SelfInsertFic -- The description of the twins matched up almost completely (save for a few modifications where the characters looked better) with pictures of the author that were floating around at the time. "Eliza Diawna" is also a variation on the author's real name: Elizabeth Dawn.
* SmallNameBigEgo -- The author, for a time. There are stories of her showing up to the movies' premiers wearing a t-shirt saying "I am Eliza Diawna Snape." and being distraught when people didn't immediately recognize her.
* ThemeTwinNaming
* TwinSwitch -- [[spoiler: Diawna pretends to be Eliza and attends Hogwarts in her place]].
