Bite me, I like it.
I unashamedly and in all seriousness nominate this for the title of best fanfiction ever written. That isn't a joke, and it's not to say that there's no such thing as a good fanfic (in the end there isn't, but that's neither here nor there). But even if I were to combine the qualities of every good fanfic I've ever read into one, it still
would not equal the fun I have listening to just one
dramatic reading of My Immortal (while I'm at it, allow me to advertise for LRM Reading
's Youtube channel; they're hilarious and one of the best).
It's not conventionally good, obviously, but it's just so ridiculous how people hate on it and call it the "worst fanfic ever". A real contender for "worst fanfic ever" would have to be one of those abominable, nausea-inducing torture/smutfics that we sometimes hear about, not something like this, which makes you laugh. It's seriously one of the funniest things I've ever read. And when you get right down to it, the terribly undescriptive and bland prose during the sex and action scenes work to its advantage. There are tons of bad fanfics out there, but how many of them can actually be enjoyed
like this one?
Canon and character defilement? I don't care. The fact that it gets almost everything about Harry Potter wrong is half of its charm. I actually was exposed to this fanfic well before I read any of the books or saw any of the movies - consequentially, I'm a bigger fan of Ebony Way's story than I am of Harry Potter's (not that I don't also like the books). So that's probably why I'm not a part of the canon nerd-rage crowd. I just enjoy it for the imaginative inglorious masterpiece that it is. So yeah.
