A/N: Hi. This is the first time I've done a fic like this. It's based on the classic Agatha Christie novel 'And Then There Were None'. It's one of (if not absolute) my all-time favourite novels in the mystery genre. I've always wanted to write a fanfic similar to the story, but I wasn't sure what fictional thing to base it on. 'Degrassi' was taken by SlasherFanatic26 (and it's an excellent, well-written variation of the novel, by the way, and I strongly recommend you read it) as was 'Teen Titans' (haven't read that one yet, but I'm sure it's pretty good) and 'Harry Potter' (ditto). Finally, I decided to settle with 'Desperate Housewives' because it seemed like a pretty good set-up: The housewives and their significant other would be brought to be punished for the sins they tried to keep hushed up behind closed doors. Your job, as the reviewer, is to guess whodunit and why before the end. You might or might not get it right, but one thing is for certain: If you love both 'And Then There Were None' and 'Desperate Housewives', you're going to have a great time with this fic! PS This takes place in an alternate universe where the tornado never took place and Gabrielle and Carlos' escape plan succeeded because we don't know when the writer's strike will end and the episode that tells us who lived and who died will finally air, so I'm using the opportunity to write this fic.

If someone told you these names were nothing more than names on a piece of paper, that this was a light-hearted happy tale — someone lied. These ten people, though different, all have one thing in common: They will each fall prey to the mind games of the murderer, whose name is on this very list. By the time they realize what is happening, it will be too late; they will all pay for their sins in the most gruesome ways the murderer will cook up with the gruesome nursery rhyme, 'Ten Little Indians'. The murderer's ingenious plan will forever be immortalized and become the main gossip on Wisteria Lane for years to come. For those who have not heard such gossip and want to find out what happened from the victims themselves, read on…
