Under the Dead Skies

Under the Dead Skies

by moonjellybeans
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!

The exclamation of hope is a bad sign... given the nature of the infected and all.

@lunabob: Thank you! We really appreciate that. It's not the news we were expecting from a routine check-up, that's for sure, but he's gained his weight back and is at least feeling better than he was. We just have to be realistic if his health takes a nose dive. ;-;

I'm glad you like it! I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but I ended up really liking the effect it had for this sequence~!

My best wishes to you and your fur baby!

I love the neon cyan lines- they really make it more surreal/more...not-happening-currently xD if that makes sense. It feels and looks like a flashback.

They say...
The worst thing you can do is split up...

Thanks for being patient again guys. It was such a stressful week the last week. My cat is doing better, but the end result is that he does have kidney lymphoma but we caught it early enough that we can at least prevent it from getting worse for a while.

@moonjellybeans: And I suspect Norway is alright?
@Zanar_Naryon: No, no, don't ever feel bad about that!

That's a good point, I might just keep it to the cursing in future pages~

Not that I complain or anything (I really hate leaving constructive criticism, it always sounds like I'm complaining), but having Magnus say simple words in Norwegian is a bit weird. I imagine it'd be more realistic if he swore (like he does) or reacted instinctively in Norwegian.

@Zanar_Naryon: I would say there's probably some central parts that have probably been hit, but since most of Canada's population is Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal those places have more beefed up security than central Canada.

Well, lessens the chance of rape if they come into other survivors. Yes, I do read a lot of dark stories, thanks for asking

@Zanar_Naryon: These parts were, I started in 2012, and right before I was gonna drop my pages on the site, the first Last of Us trailer came out. I panicked about it for a while, but decided to keep going anyways~ XD
@Zanar_Naryon: YES! He's from Norway (Stavanger to be exact!). My dad's side of the family is from there!

I think you're the first Norwegian person to comment XD

@Zanar_Naryon: EXACTLY!! Would anyone want to try and organize a mob of panicky people? Get people outta there, then explanations when people are safe!
