What happens when a tree branch falls onto a powerline? - Fanfiction Edition

OK, this is weird …

10 months ago, I posted this short video (I didn’t record it, but discovered it and uploaded as it wasn’t embeddable). It is by far the most popular thing I have ever shared, and every so often, my dashboard reignites (sorry) with activity about it. Now, I discover that, popular as it is, it has it’s own fan-fiction …

EDIT: OK, I admit, I did have to wipe away a tear …

“No,” the wire whispered. “You can’t—you’ll burn—”

The branch smiled sadly, looking up at the tree that had protected her for so many years. But, the branch needed to know for herself the heat and passion of the wires. “I would rather burn a hundred times over,” she said softly, “than live an eternity away from you.”

“But, I’m right here! You can see me every day!” The wire pleaded desperately. “You don’t have to do this!”

“Actually, I do,” the branch replied. “I’m falling and it’s only a matter of time. Pleasetell me you’ll catch me. Even if I’ll burn, tell me you’ll catch me.”

The wire was silent before swaying in affirmation, gazing up at the branch that had always been so far above him. Always out of reach, always kept away, protected jealously by the tree.

The wind was picking up, and with each blow, the branch swung ever closer to the wires until finally, she was ripped from the tree and fell down into the waiting arms of her beloved.

“Hello,” she whispered, feeling that dreadful heat creeping up from her base. It wouldn’t be long now. The sparks were already starting and she was starting to glow. The wire tried to prevent the inevitable, desperately trying to contain the power he knew would lead to her violent destruction, but all he could do was watch her burn as they swayed in the wind.

It was over within a few seconds. There was a sudden burst of colorful flames and everything was still. Even the wind had died down, leaving the remnants of the branchhis branchsprawled across him, nothing more than a charred memory.

You know Shweta’s going to great lengths not to do her paper when she writes a tragic OTP for a telephone wire and a tree branch.

I’m going to now creep out as discreetly as possible and try to write my paper. Or something.

Tumblrdid you just give me a fanfictionabout a stick falling on a power line?

And people wonder why I spend so much time with you.

Still a better love story than Twilight.
