This Never Happened is a popular not!fic by Bexless. It was originally posted to her now-deleted livejournal sometime before 31 October 2008[1] and was later uploaded to the AO3.

In addition to being not!fic, the story contains many classic MCR tropes, including Basement!Gerard, crossdressing, Mikey not smiling, and High School AUs.

Like many fics by Bexless, "This Never Happened" was turned into a podfic. See This Never Happened (podfic).
