I get the feeling that this annoys goths and fanficcers in the same way 'Star Trekkin' annoys Trekkers. Nevertheless, I felt I had to share.

Star Trekkin' annoys Trekkers?
What crack are you on? Is it bath salts?

Anyway, some context, via Cracked: "He took of my top and I took of his clothes. I even took of my bra. Then he put his thingie into my you-know-what and we did it for the first time."

I like this post, because I miss Fan Fic Friday.

Actually, it was a fanfic-writing friend of mine who told me about this whole thing. He got an enormous kick out of all this stuff. (And also linked me to all things pertaining to Mina de Malfois. I occasionally re-read Mina de Malfois when I need cheering up.)

I don't begrudge anyone who hasn't actually read "My Immortal", but don't worry, it won't annoy anyone to have people mock it - it's a parody. It's well done enough that people who have read it will argue over this, but there are tell tale signs (for instance, the misspellings getting worse as the story progresses).

Truly it is a glorious occasion that it has been committed to film as it is once of the great narratives of our time.

The problem with finding the worst version of X is that it's a game you lose just by playing.

This, however, is a self-awarely "bad" parody so I will enjoy it in the spirit that is was intended. #idontevengohere

Since we're gonna talk Harry anyway, I want to share these Potter illos (from io9?) from the original artist. Such whimsy. It was a simpler time, before the fanficcers.

It is best Harry.

Star Trekkin' annoys me, that's for fuckin' sure. My Immortal in all its incarnations makes me as happy as a moth ridden corset.

Have we ever gotten anyone taking credit for My Immortal as a parody? I mean, I agree with capricorn and The Whelk that it (almost) certainly has to be, but if the person behind has kept quiet for this long, that's almost as impressive. I think the Doom: Repercussions of Evil / Half-Life: Full Life Consequences guy held out for like 5 years before admitting that yeah, he'd done it as a joke. At this point, Ebony Darkness has surpassed him by quite a lot.

Isn't that supposed to be spelled "Enoby"?

sorry, now KYM is telling me that Half-Life: Full Life Consequences was someone else and the Half-Life fanfic I was thinking of by Peter Chimaera was called QuarterLife: Halfway to Destruction. The first one is the one with Gordon Freeman's long-lost brother, the second one is the one that shows one of the most profoundly hilarious "failed" understandings of nuclear physics ever with the line "UI have discovered new radoactive isatope but it is so vollatile that it does not have a half-life but quarter-life so we must observe with hasty"

This is available for mobile on Vimeo.

I know it’s in the YouTube description, but it wasn’t obvious to me when I looked at it on my phone.

"I cant give you my lisense officer" John Freeman said

"Why not?" said the headcrab oficer back to John Freeman.

"Because you are headcrab zombie" so John Freeman shot the oficer in the head and drove off thinking "my brother is in trouble there" and went faster.

I get the feeling that it's of vast comfort to them, because they can look at it and say, well, I'm not even in the ballpark of that bad. If it didn't exist, someone would have had to create it.

Had I been born just a little later than I was, perhaps my naïve adolescent missteps would also be preserved for eternity on the web, to be mocked by Cracked writers and amateur filmmakers struggling to find material.

I'm glad I wasn't born just a little later than I was.
