Writer's Notes

" I worked really hard on this, but I still feel like it needs more work, haha. But I love it, anyway. I hope you guys do too! I kept adding more details right up until posting, so let me know if I missed any errors. Thanks for reading!"

A fanmix for the fic was created by lone_wolf.


"OH man I love this. Great job. OH MAN I WANT MORE ... lol. Can't wait for the sequels great story."[1]
"Zomg this is awesome and well plotted and paced. I like how you've set up a couple mysteries for them to solve in the midst of the overarcing adventure/survival story. ZOMBIE DYSTOPIA. for the win."[2]
"That was a good read. I love zombie movies so this was my cup of tea. Some things had me wanting to bang my head against a wall though, particularly Justin giving his gun to Laritate, and Justin and Alex randomly kissing twice throughout the story and never mentioning anything about it or detailing their reactions to it. Kissing your sibling isn't really the type of thing that just happens with no reaction haha."[3]
"This is truly amazing. I read it all in one night and just...wow. Everything flows perfectly so it doesn't feel forced or fake. The characters are perfectly in their own personalities, and just...love it!"[4]
