Kudos at all costs

Originally posted on my ladyofastolat LJ a couple of weeks ago, but I guess I ought to post this here for the sake of completeness.

So, Bunn wrote a collection of perfectly crafted, and very funny, micro stories about readers not leaving kudos on stories they liked on AO3. My attempt to leave kudos on it was temporarily thwarted by an issue of an accidental logout and a mislaid password. Rather a tiny, untraumatic adventure, granted, but it made me wonder what other adventures might be endured by readers who are determined to leave kudos, but find barriers in their way. I started by writing them in the comments on her LJ post, but my imagination wouldn't stop coming up with more, each one more far-fetched and over-dramatic than the last. In the end, I decided that I needed to compile them into a single file and post them somewhere, just so I could tell my imagination that this whole enterprise was over now, and it should stop tormenting me with new ideas. In the interests of spreading the insanity, I post a link here.
