Go To

1A man who loves animated films directed towards a mature audience browses the internet one day and discovers an online forum dedicated to films that were mistaken as being targeted towards children. One such film in question is the infamous disaster film ''WesternAnimation/WhenTheWindBlows'' based on the [[ComicBook/WhenTheWindBlows graphic novel of the same name]] written by Creator/RaymondBriggs. Upon discovering that there was a darker ending to the film, the narrator decides to watch the "secret ending" via a link. The story can be found [[ here]].----!!The fanfic provides examples of: * BodyHorror: The Bloggs develop welts all over their bodies as in the film, but it is also shown that Ron and his family were fused together in reference to Jim assuring his wife that Ron and his family would always stick together.* DespairEventHorizon: Unlike the film where Jim slightly had hope that the Powers That Be would save him and his wife, in the alternate ending, Jim dies whilst holding his wife's lifeless body, realizing that the Powers That Be have been destroyed and all hope was lost.* DownerEnding: In the alternate ending of an already depressing film, Jim shoots Hilda in the back of her head to spare her the pain of realizing that help would never come.* DrivenToMadness: In the film, Jim is harassed by an inner voice likely being his conscience for lying to his wife about the truth of their situation.* ImAHumanitarian: The Bloggs' food ration, or whatever remained after the bomb dropped, quickly run thin, forcing the couple to eat the corpses of those killed by the blasts. Earlier, Jim contemplated killing his wife in his hungered mind but relented at the last moment. * LaughingMad: Ron does this upon the realization that he and his family would die horribly from the nuclear explosion.* NoPartyLikeADonnerParty: The Bloggs are forced to eat a deceased family's burnt corpses to stave off starvation.* TogetherInDeath: Like in the original film, the Bloggs ultimately meet their end.
