Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Choose your own

Choose your own adventure, zombie apocalypse version. Because I've somehow become ever so slightly obsessed with zombies.

You are in Alaska. It is summer. Suddenly, a zombie walks out from behind a tree and moans at you. Do you try to fight it, stop in your tracks, or run away?

First of all, *tight hug* VIOLA?!!!! *happy squeaking* *hug again*

Seccond, if I have a weapon, fight. If I have nothing, run. Run very far in the way I came, don’t want to get lost!

Hi? *is pleased but confused*

All right, let's say you don't. You run back towards home. The zombie shuffles after you, but you easily outpace it. Soon enough, it's out of sight. Do you go home, out into the wilderness, or somewhere else?

By the way, this will be partially based on a dream I had a while ago, so if things are weird, it's dream logic.

Ooh! Um, stop in my tracks.

Is offering the cute little zombie lemonade an option?!

Given the request, I take it you have some lemonade, so sure. You offer this zombie some lemonade, but it pays no heed to the refreshing beverage, instead choosing to bite you. You are infected. Congratulations. Would you like to try to get away and eventually become a zombie yourself, or simply be eaten and not turn?

Ooooh, I shall be a zombie! It will be fuuuuuun.

Okay. You step away so that the zombie can't eat you, and spend some time playing rather one-sided games with it, before your vision clouds and the world tips and warps around you. When you next open your eyes, you feel different. Hungry. But there's nothing to eat here, only another zombie. Do you wait for food to come to you, try to seek it out yourself, or do something else?

I try to seek some out myself!

Okay, uh... Yeah, I never planned for this, but we'll say you wander around for a while and eventually come to a town. As you approach, you notice a swarm of other zombies descending on a particular street together. Do you go towards them, or stay on your own?

I go towards the other zombies!

You join the herd of zombies. They're mostly trying to push in through the open door, though some are going for windows and a few have given up on this place and are shuffling away. Where do you go?

I try to break a window.

Oh, uh. Okay.

You gather around with some other zombies and start pounding on a window. It takes a lot of hands applying a lot of force, but with one final blow, you shatter the glass into a brief, sparkly rain. And there's food inside!

Despite the press of your fellow zombies struggling to get in all at once, you manage to make it through the window. Your feet shift on the remains of the barrier you broke. 

And then something hits the back of your head.

Congratulations, you have died. Would you like to try again?

All right. Leeli, you stop in your tracks. The zombie shuffles slowly towards you. It is clearly a zombie, though you've never seen one in real life before. It's very close now. It's got its arms out, reaching for you, and its mouth open, emitting unpleasant noises. Do you run, try to fight, or stay where you are and risk being bitten?

Hmm. I’ll try to fight.
