Software Anti-Narrative

In narratology anti-narrative denotes a narrative having sequences of events impossible in reality. In software traces such sequences usually depict abnormal software behaviour. Here are some parallels with corresponding trace analysis patterns:

Fiction                     | Software Trace
================================================
Repeated unrepeatable       | Periodic Error (?)
Denarration (erasure)       | No Activity / Incomplete History
Chronological contradiction | Impossible Trace

Question mark means that possibly another pattern is needed there.
