I have decided to delete my AO3 account. I no longer want to write about a couple of fictional characters, Star Trek and Spirk are dead

What’s going on?
Did something happen?
Please don’t delete. Take a step back. Relax.

God. I was NOT expecting that from you. But you have no idea the immediate hot face and tears that evoked for like half a second. You bum.
BTW – thank you for all you have done to keep spirk and pinto and ST alive and thriving.
We love you.
And now I’m really crying.
But that’s the most effective April Fool’s joke I’ve ever had pulled on me.
The second was that proofreader guy I was training who threw a hissy fit at the horrible job and screamed that he was quitting, took his briefcase and stormed out. And I being in a different office, tripped over a box the stupid writers left in the hall, chasing after him.
He didn’t think it was so funny then when I was crying and lying in the floor hurt.
But when he came back crying to see what had happened, I burst out laughing, yeah, even in the floor, and then everyone who had run out into the hall to see what was happening, laughed too.
Payback is a bitch. Immediate payback is a beyotch.

I can totally see you doing that, by the way. HA. Yes, it was a spur of the moment thing, I was like, how can I get them?I figured it might work for half a second HA HA… Spirk dead? Star Trek dead? They’ll have to pry it from my skeleton hands?

And he thought HE was an actor. And I don’t even have a SAG card!

Here….you’ll forgive me now. I wrote this little snippet just for you.
The phone rang and rang. He was about to give up. He was feeling stupidly vulnerable and he absolutely hated that feeling.
For a long time silence greeted Zach and he thought for a second his heart would leap right up into his throat and out his mouth.
He had no clue why he was so nervous. “I’m coming there.” No response. “Chris?”
“Well. There’s this thing. Um. WonderCon. It’s for that AMC thing.”
“Yes. It’s in Anaheim. It’s not a long visit. I’m coming back pretty quick to New York, but…”
“Where are you staying?”
“They’ve got me booked at the Hilton.”
“That hell hole? Filled with annoying families going to Disneyland.”
“You want to come here?”
Zach closed his eyes. “I…I wouldn’t want to impose.”
Chris chuckled, warm and deep. It did insane things to Zach’s groin.
“Oh you like to impose.”
“If you have, um, anyone there, then—”
“No one’s here. You want me to come get you or something?”
“No, I’m going straight to the con. I’ll get a car service to take me to your house.” Zach paused. “After. I fly out the next afternoon.”
“That is quick.”
“You sound down. Are you all right?”
Zach sighed. “Fine. Just…want to see you, is all.”
“I’ll be here when you get here.” Long pause. “Waiting.”
Zach’s mouth went dry and all he could think was, damn, WonderCon couldn’t pass fast enough.

(Of course extra points would have been given if you had made it Chris calling ME. But this is 2nd best.)

Remember what I told you that I used to tell my students about making mistakes at contest and don’t do it because I’m old and I could have a heart attack and die and you’d feel guilty?
I’m literally shaking now.
