I feel like people are thinking that My Immortal was a genuine example of Rose Cristo’s writing when she was 15 yrs old, but the official description for her memoir that just came out confirms what I have always believed, that my immortal was a joke/trollfic, although the reason why she wrote it is something no one would have ever guessed:
A heartbreaking and wryly hopeful memoir of surviving the NYC foster care system―and how one girl’s “masterpiece of literary disaster” (io9.com) connected her to a community that could help her find her lost brother.
In the early 2000s, Rose Christo was separated from her five-year-old brother and shuttled between foster homes in Brooklyn to the Bronx and back again. Desperate to be reunited with her sibling, she traveled the five boroughs, unable to find any trace of him, as New York state’s child care agencies failed to help her time and again.
Then, with the help of one beloved foster sister, Rose created an infamous piece of Harry Potter fanfiction titled My Immortal, posting it online under the pseudonym XXXbloodyrists666XXX. The “forty-four chapters and 22,000 words of hysterical, typo-laden hyperbole” (BuzzFeed.com) went viral as the most notoriously terrible fanfic ever read by the community. For years, fans, writers, and editors researched, debated, and contested the story’s origin and its mysterious author: was this grammatically-challenged rant actually written by a suicidal Goth teenager named Tara Gilesbe living in Dubai, or was this a hoax perpetrated by a group of professional authors making fun of fanfiction?
The truth is a gripping, compelling, and surprisingly funny story of how a young girl infiltrated and used the fan fiction community to search for her brother by baiting their attention with a deliberately badly written tale, creating a ten-year mystery that garnered pop culture media attention and remained unsolved―until now.
whoops i forgot to finish my thought.
anyway, if her goal in writing this fic was to get the attention of her brother thru the fandom by making it so egregiously, infamously bad that the entire harry potter fandom will have to hear about it, including her brother. then it succeeded. really well. overwhelmingly well. too well. thischarmingmothman’s 14,000 word essay argues that it is an intentionally put together, perfect concoction of madness intended to get people’s attention, and it is!
Honestly, viewed in this light, my immortal actually appears to be testimony to Rose Christo’s genius at 15 years old.
Whatever your political beliefs are you have to hear about carcrashes and supermodels and serial murderers and little kittens dying or going to hear decision from a contract
For Sumerian name translation- how about Rachel? It means “ewe” which is a female sheep :) or whatever is closest!
Silim Rachel! This is an easy one — sheep were one of, if not the, most common domesticated animals in Sumer. There are a couple of words for “ewe”: ganam, which refers to any female sheep, and u (yes, just the letter u), which is more common but is used exclusively for female sheep which are old enough to have lambs. Confusingly, both words are written with the same cuneiform sign, 𒇇.
Poor Infowars Owen is getting no sympathy for being rightfully insulted by a little girl.
This guys were out in their boat when they saw the tiniest kittens swimming towards them for help. 😭💛🐱
Via The Dodo

There’s a full video before The Dodo edited it around and put cheesy music on top.
They were adopted by a pair of little girls the fishermen met when they got back to the dock.
They named them Warrior and River. The nerds 😛

So let me just say this…
Disabled ppl can be bitches too.
Now let me explain. We are just like everyone else because we are HUMAN!!! WOW WHAT A SHOCKER! OMG!
I had a guest shocked because the deaf lady that checked in before him was a complete bitch. He said and I quote “I thought those ppl were suppose to be nice.” Like what the fuck dude. She’s deaf she’s not a fucking fairy tale angle for fucks sake.
Disabled people are people get that threw your thick ass skulls.
Hell I’m the first to tell you I’m an evil bitch and I was like this way before I became disabled.
Disabled ppl can be rude.
Disabled ppl can be sexy.
Disabled ppl can be smart.
Disabled ppl can be anything because we are still just a fucking human being.
