Summary: Based on the Tumblr prompt: "petition for jennifer lawrence and emma stone to co-star in a movie as lesbian zombie hunters" Emma Stone used to have this plan for her life. It was all laid out. She was going to get her degree, then marry her high school sweetheart, get a temporary job to tide her over until she got herself published – which, according to her plan, was going to be obtained by twenty-five. They would have no less than two children, no more than four, and though she figured Aldis would probably get a pretty good job, she was going to support them with her novels. Everyone knew she was driven, and people said that Emma was really going places. Only she doesn't know what happened. Because she’s now three years past her by-publication-date, she hates Aldis’ guts, somehow she’s still working at her shitty tide-over retail job, and the only thing she’s gotten published in the last three years is her Doctor Who fanfiction. And sure, the Kudos on her self-insert Emma-the-Companion stories are nice, but it’s not the millions she envisioned her writing bringing in. There were supposed to be books with her name on them on her book self, not just a few thousand notebooks she’d filled with words that had never gotten her anywhere. All she’s got is a shitty job, a zombie apocalypse survival plan, and a Tom Baker scarf. Only, as it turns out, watching ever Romero movie a thousand times over hasn’t actually prepared her all that well for the end of the world. Or, for that matter, for the entirely fascinating new girl in town.
