This is probably what Hermione--excuse me, Maya--looks like in Ghost of You.

Ghost of You is an apocryphal fanfic written by Tara Gilesbie and Raven. Although it does not seem to be in continuity with My Immortal, it does share most of its themes and motifs, and can be considered a spiritual successor.

Unlike My Immortal, however, it only has one chapter, Helena.


The story opens with Hermione on a train. During her summer vacation in America, her abusive, neglectful parents (Raven states that this possible because it's never implied it's not true. Obviously, if the canon Hermione DID have such horrible parents, it would have had a noticeable impact on her character, not to mention redundant with Harry's terrible life with his aunt's family.) revealed they were actually her adoptive parents and her real family was a wizarding one. Her parents refused to tell her who her real parents were, so in her rage Hermione, now calling herself Maya, murders them. Somehow, the Ministry have no idea whatsoever about this. For the rest of the summer, Maya lives in Cho Chang's Tokyo apartment with Ginny, and they become close.

As a goth, she wears black lipstick (which she checks via a black makeup mirror) and has nearly waist-length, newly dyed black hair and eyes which she made emerald via magic. Her gothic attire is a black leather 'bustier' a blue paid mini trimmed with black lace, blood-red lipstick (somehow with the black one earlier), and matching eyeshadow. She has pale skin from a lack of sunlight, and is slender but with curves in all the right places.

When she turns on her iPhone (Raven at the start claims she doesn't care when Harry Potter takes place, in her story it takes place in 2021, thus they can have iPhones and 'NORMAL' clothes and shit if she wants), she plays an Evanescence song at full volume. Luna Lovegood, who in this story has become a prep (completely missing the point of her character in canon) wearing a  pink mini, a slutty pink halter top, and Gucci shoes, sitting next to giggling blonde preps.

Maya gives them the middle finger and listens to some MCR, only to be greeted by her new gothic friends, who she swears at, only to apologize and tell them to 'sit down, my bitches'. Cho, now called 'Dementia' after her middle name is there(are you sensing a pattern with all the characters with "Dementia" in their name in Tara's writing?) as are Ginny and 'Virginia', aka Tara. Ginny wears a sexy black corset dress with red lacing, pink fishnets, and black high heeled boots. She also wore black lipstick and eyeliner and her hair was dyed blood-red, with black tips. Dementia has new purple streaks in long, silky ebony hair and wore a torn black MCR t-shirt, a ripped black and red plaid mini, safety pin earrings and black combat boots with heels.

As her friends sit down, she notices Draco Malfoy is sitting behind her. Once again, his character has become gothic. His hair is dyed black and slicked back "(a/n: kinda like Tom Felton in the first movie)". His eyes are icy blue and suggest inner depths of darkness. Maya talks with her friends for a while and Dementia thinks that Harry and Ron will be loving her new look. When it's time to get off the train, Maya thinks she might have seen a boy in leather pants, a leather jacket, black hair and blue eyes smile at her.
