"Bring Me to Life" is a "short, semi-historical metafanfic" about the origins of My Immortal based on a discussion on the Wild Mass Guessing page. It was written by RandomTroperWhoLikes1R.

The official summary:

Tara Gilesbie is failing her English class. No, she's not one of those honors kids who claim that they're failing when they really have a B. She has a literal F on her report card for English. So when she's asked to write a short story to bring up her grade, she does the only sane thing that a girl like her could do.

It can't be that hard to resurrect Oscar Wilde and get him to write her story, right?

But there's something a little bit...different about her teacher's favorite author. He can't spell or use grammar properly, so Tara gets Edgar Allan Poe to be his beta reader. The two of them have epic plans to write a "gothic reinterpretation of Harry Potter," but will it work out, or will the whole project crash and burn?

A brief tale of how the worst's worst piece of literature, "My Immortal," came about.
