Writer's Block: The Walking Dead

In case of an impending zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice, and why?

My sheer turn of speed?

Or wait, they eat brains, don't they? I could let Avon convince them I don't have any, not really a stretch for him, but of course that would only work till they grab him and his tasty, tasty brain.

But if they eat the whole brain, then what makes new zombies? They've got to have something up there to walk around doing slow stumbly "target acquired"s, surely? I don't really get the whole idea of zombies; not very logical.

I'll ask Avon. He'll laugh at the whole thing and, you know, I might be able to get some sleep tonight.

Using Avon against either real or imaginary zombies sounds like a good idea to me. You're right, he wouldn't believe in imaginary ones - and I don't think real ones would have much of a chance against him.

If it comes to it, though, a friend and I have a long-standing plan to escape by hot-air balloon in the event of zombie apocalypse, so you're welcome to join us. Especially if you could steal a suitable hot-air balloon that can make the journey from the UK to Australia. (I didn't say it was a well-thought out plan...)

Avon vs the zombies... Hmm. (That was me thinking ficcy thoughts, because said friend adores imaginary zombie apocalypses and I like writing them - as long as the zombies stay off-screen.)

A hot-air balloon sounds a bit insecure (I mean, easy to shoot or for that matter bite holes in) and slow. I think standard-by-12 to an isolated planet is the way to go.

Go on, I dare you!

(OOC: If you want to see the crew as zombies themselves, see this wonderfully, blackly funny fic:
The Zombie Master Part 1
The Zombie Master Part 2)

There are other elements to the plan, but I've forgotten them now. :-)

Maybe! Although thinking ficcy thoughts right now is far easier than writing them down. But I am running out of things I haven't used for zombie apocalypses for my friend, true...

(And thank you!! AstroGirl fic with zombies!!)

Well, there'd have to be! Just make sure you don't fill the thing with hydrogen.

(OOC: Vila and Avon also had a run-in with zombies in this crossover.)
