The greatest Hallowe'en story ever told in fanfic

Eck. This has just been a wasted week, so far. I had an episode that’s become rather common lately: I felt crappy for a couple of days with a somewhat stuffy head and didn’t function well, had a fever of 100.4 last night, slept from 11:30 to 8 am. Now I’ll feel OK for a few days, and then probably have it happen again. I’d go to a doctor but that is like the most unspecific symptom list ever.  At any rate, I'm now waaaay behind on the things I wanted to get done this week.

Tomorrow and Friday, the entire company except for the receptionist and me will be in Las Vegas at our annual investigator meeting. I will be frantically trying to get the revision B changes made to the database, while no one is around to be messing with it. Hopefully I will succeed…but it means staying out of conversations online, and not looking to see if any not-shippers have not written or not drawn any not-fic.  That is not fun.

You're wondering about the fanfic mentioned in my subject line, aren't you? I’m going to assume that anyone reading this agrees with me about the uselessness of the series Enterprise. There’s a thread at TWoP called “Jon Archer Must Die”, created so that people can relieve their anger at the most-hated captain in Trek history by coming up with ways for him to die. It's a hilarious read because Peachy Keen began working through the entire series starting with “Broken Bow”, writing potential Archer death scenes for every single episode. In the last couple of days, a number of Hallowe’en-themed deaths have been posted. So, if you’d like to see Captain Quantum experience death by Jason, zombies, werewolves, Dracula, and razorbladed treats, click here. And then go back to the beginning and read the entire thread. You'll be glad you did. There's vampire hoyay.  And braaains.  And general childishness.  It's like an evening with my best friends.

I am pretty sure I should take offense at at least one sentence in this post.. but I will not-reveal which one it is. All I will say is that it has nothing at all to do with either not getting things done, your neverending non-specific semi-illness, Star Trek or tomorrow's day of Getting Things Done.

I have no idea what you're not-talking about!

Yes, of course you do not. And I know nothing of the story that is being discussed in the thread below this one. There is a very, very, very slim chance that both of those statements are blatantly false. Very slim indeed. I mean, there is a chance... but what I am saying is that it is slim.

Ooooh...which one was that?

I am horrible. Whether it's fic or published fiction, I remember plots in massive detail, but unless I concentrate, I don't remember the author or title. It's very sad. I drive people nuts because I'll tell them about a story, and then when they want to read it, I have to go to the s.f. bookcase and stare at the book spines, hoping that one of them will look familiar...

OH--that one!!! That one is unbelievable. I'm a bit hesitant to recommend it because some people can't deal with the first part. It bothers me not because of what happened to him, but because what upsets him about it was realizing he wasn't really "special".

That was one of the first ones I read, and it helped suck me into Heroes fic. Everyone I'd ever known who wrote fic before, wrote the stereotypical horrible crap--reading this just blew my mind.

The part with him and Anonymous also got me--how he started to think it could be something more, only to wake up hurting and alone :(

I know. I think that's why it affected me so much: my opinion has always been that NOTHING is going to work out happily for him, no matter how hard he tries, somehow it will always go bad in the end. Another reason why I feel for the character so much.
