One of the most fascinating generational gaps in fandom to me is how My Immortal is viewed. Like, a lot of teens these days look at My Immortal and say, yeah, that’s really obviously a trollfic, because compared to fanfic these days? It could only be a troll. But for those of us who were active in fandom in 2006, when My Immortal first arrived on the scene, there’s really no way to know, because a lot of fanfic at that time was legitimately that bad. It’s completely within the realm of possibility that the author of My Immortal was 100% genuine in her fic’s quality in 2006.

It’s just really interesting to see how different age groups interpret My Immortal, based on when they became exposed to fandom.
