The Curse of the Fetched Repo

A Horror Story
by elfnor

Whilst investigating the death of a local issue, a public commit called A. Contributor uncovers a legend about a supernaturally-cursed, fetched repo circulating throughout upstream. As soon as anyone uses the repo, he or she has exactly 31 days left to live.

The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during day to day life, but when photographed, they look merged. A marked person feels like a checked out collaborator to touch.

A. gets hold of the repo, refusing to believe the superstition. A collage of images flash into her mind: a blamed git balancing on a cloned issue, an old newspaper headline about a rebase accident, a hooded organization ranting about forks and a drinking well located in an open source place.

When A. notices her branches have collaborator-like properties, she realises that the curse of the fetched repo is true and calls in her primary, a diff called B. User, to help.

B. examines the repo and willingly submits himself to the curse. He finds that the same visions flash before his eyes. He finds the blamed git balancing on a cloned issue particularly chilling. He joins the queue for a supernatural death.

A. and B. pursue a quest to uncover the meaning of the visions, starting with a search for the hooded organization. Will they be able to stop the curse before their time is up?
