Yep. I got the idea after playing an app on facebook pertaining to the Zombie Apocalypse. Honestly, I can't stand Zombie based stuff since it's overkill at this point. Since everyone and their mother are now preparing for the Apocalypse (if it ever happens), what the hell is the purpose of making one Zombie themed story to another? A little originality is all I'm asking for.
Though I have room to talk. lol. One universe pertains to a Zombie Apocalypse. But here is what happens:
Very plain Jane. Zombie outbreak, survival of the fittest, yada, yada, yada. . . Not going into full details about it, but I can place Payton in here. He basically wakes up finding the whole city dead quiet. He got a bonk in the head that knocked his ass out for a few days and missed the one way ticket out of dodge. So now, he has to rely on his own survival skills, instinctive nature, and find a sanctum of his own to hide out until he finds a way out. However, being a cop, he feels obligated to find survivors. Which is what this story focuses on. During his scavenging around, he searches for survivors, builds a small shelter, and works on finding a way out, or a means to seek refuge away from the infested city. This is basically a simple setup really. Nothing new. Question is, whose a survivor, and whose infected?
Now on to the next one:
This one I got inspired after reading about the No Man's Land arc from Batman (Must read, by the way. Would recommend reading Cataclysm to get an idea what happened.) This one is more of a man vs man set up. A massive Earthquake shatters key locations and due to the costly value to fix the damages, the United States Government decides to not fund the repairs and declare these locations No Man's Land. Completely shutting out the locations from society forcing the inhabitants to survive on their own. Like the story arc, more or less. Only difference, no one steps in to reversr the order. These are stuck indefinitely since the Federal Government is attempting to save money by not funding them. Of course, they had, in this universe, provided one too many bail outs for others, hence the cutting of repairs. In this one, Payton is among the individuals stuck in one of the places which suffered from the Quake. With how chaotic things are, it would take some time before order is reissued. Meanwhile, Spartan One, the US hero does some digging of his own trying to figure out how these issues took place. Thus stepping into what he considers as "Warzones" and gathers what evidence he can find on these cataclysms that hit key points. For him, this would be a trip back down memory lane, and show how much of a survivalist he really is by passing his knowledge to the inhabitants. Again, these are two characters of mine, what happens to others, I leave up to you to decide.
AS for the artjam, their are two days left. So if you have something pertaining to Payton and Werewolves, be sure to tag me in your submission and I'll put it up.
No pressure, folks. It's for fun.
Now, time for me to take off for the night. Personally, I'm burnt from working a lot. Not much of a descent day off in the last four weeks. Personal life is a mess. x.x Till next time.
