    There are no doubt quite a few like that, but the awful summary would dissuade many from checking it out.

    I don't think I've ever encountered a good story with a bad summary, but there are probably a few somewhere. It's just kind of hard to imagine an author failing at a two line summary and managing to write a good story.

    Half of the stories that I read that update often have bad summaries.

    The summary.

    For those of you who do not know what My Immortal is, it is in short and most accurately completely retarded. My Immortal is a very loose Harry Potter fanfiction story about Ebony (or Enoby) Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, a gothic teenage vampire girl who attends Hogwarts school. To say anymore may spoil the lulz. The story is infamous for its horrible abuse to the english language and extreme gothic attitude.
    and now what you came for!

    This is the first paragraph...

    Hi my name is Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a witch, and I go to a magic school called Hogwarts in England where I’m in the seventh year (I’m seventeen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

    I really hope you are being sarcastic.

    If not, google and pretend you were.

    Right. Of course I was. >.> <.< >.>

    I don't watch TV, cause my satellite's always getting knocked out (I live in a very wooded area, so any amount of wind fucks with the signal).

    Ah, well. Googled now, I guess?

    Not really a must-know, anyway. I was just surprised given the hype it's had, especially here.
