Bethany had everything you could ask for. A condo that was (almost) paid off, a well paying job, and most importantly, a family. It all changed in a heart beat and she had to watch as her whole world crumbled around her and soon she found herself alone in a city of flesh-eating zombies.
Despite the overwhelming odds against her, Beth has managed to do what very few people have been able to do in this post-apocalyptic nation.
She has survived.
However, after coming across a young man with an unexpected trait, she finds herself torn between staying in the comfort and safety of her current routine or risking it all for the greater good of humanity.
As expected, there will be blood, guts, bodies and other unsightly dead things, you have been warned!
@moonjellybeans: Yeah, that's always a good thing, just seems like that guest was thinking Magnus was trying to choke the thing unconscious or something.
I mean, yeah that hold's good for that, but it was more to slow the zombie down than try to press it into submission.
Only way to make a zombie submit that I know of requires destroying their joints and a number of their bones. breaking the jaw then taping it shut being part of that process.
I mean, if some scientist needs a live specimine of an infected, that's how I'd deliver it anyways. Mangled, but "alive".
@moonjellybeans: Save that it's being used on a zombie, something that very rarely needs to breathe. Depends on mythos backing and what type of zombie.
A hypothetical 5 bucks says that whatever live specimen taken wasn't properly disabled to make examining it actually safe, causing an outbreak at whatever lab it was being done at. Well, if a specimen was taken that is.
I'll be honest though, one probably has given the situation going on. having samples and corpses are fine and all, but living subjects tend to be leaps and bounds more helpful in these kinds of scenarios. ... And people like Magnus even more so but that's something a bit more dark. Given that everything else is pretty much only wearing the flesh of former humans so to speak.
Magnus is still very much alive... even though he's definitely carrying the virus. What would be done to him is a bit, well, all said and done it's a lot more risky than experimenting on regular zombies here. His state is the sort that makes even blood tests hazardous to test on if something unexpected happens.
