I just realized something. Nine’s regeneration is so much more intense to me now because he says, “Rose Tyler, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I." This man just came from the most gruesome war in all of time and space that nearly ripped the universe apart. This man just went through an incredibly long period of fighting and refusal to call himself The Doctor. To his knowledge he had just slaughtered two entire races including his own and is now completely alone in the universe. “Doctor no more,” he so recently told himself.
But then it was over and he met this young, beautiful woman. She reminded him how amazing human beings were and the infinite depth of his own compassion. He must have thought to himself, “Look at all the adventures we had and all the lives we saved. Together we saved the day again, just like old times. The Doctor and his companion. I can keep doing this. I can keep saving lives. I am really The Doctor again. So thank you for everything Rose Tyler. You were absolutely fantastic. And you know what? Despite the regret I live with every day. Despite possible hesitation to even call myself The Doctor. Despite the things I’ve so recently seen and done. You reminded me something so very important. I AM The Doctor again. And I suppose I am actually pretty fantastic too…”
Aw this is lovely
also, duct tape on your arms, a few layers, but not too tight. basically it’ll stop a zombie taking a chunk out of your arm if you’re reloading or your blade gets jammed in a zombie
wearing a wetsuit underneath your clothing would also be useful. remember; they were human once, humans have blunt teeth! you try biting through duct tape AND a wet suit
never duct tape joints, your movements will be limited, and you want to be fast and danger (gotta go fast)
don’t hole up in small houses either that’s a recipe for disaster, you want somewhere with a secure upstairs, and a way down from the upstairs that is zombie free or can easily be cleared of zombies (avoid fire exits with steps leading up to them though, unless they have gates at the bottom)
sound = attraction, so if you do have guns, use them only in emergencies or for the sake of popping one head you’ll be greeted with many many more
raid your local medical shops, and get there first, nobody is going to stop and share it out equally while they’re panicking. don’t hit out at somebody unless they hit out at you, though, you already have unintelligent corpses pitted against you, you don’t want sentient humans on your case as well (zombies don’t do the revenge thing, humans do!)
try not to piss people off, because as stated before, yes, humans like revenge
don’t try and be clever and use yourself as live bait; yes playing the hero is glorious in movies, but it doesn’t work so glamorously in real life
large numbers isn’t a good idea. you want small groups, even if you just branch out from being in a larger group, because if there’s a lot of you you are a bigger target, but don’t then go off and decide to be in groups that are too small in case you get surrounded (in which case, the duct tape and wet suits will come in handy)
food shouldn’t be that hard to come by, most people would have attempted to flee the area straight from their houses and packed what they had, raiding local shops could still be worth it. but remember, know your way in, your way out, and double check there’s nothing in the shop ready to sneak up behind you while you’re reaching up for that tin of beans
half balaclava masks or something similar to cover your lower face while fighting zombies could also be useful, you don;t want to accidentally ingest flying zombie fluids and end up one of them, that’d be a nasty surprise for your group to wake up to (since going solo possibly isn’t a good idea)
and always, ALWAYS, have a way to start a fire on you
I love my followers so you need to protect yourselves.
even better, defeat Pestilence before he can start the virus
This is relevant cause i’m in a zombie movie…
Axes and crowbars are not only perfect for killing zombies, they are also capable of breaking down secured doors.
And never ever ever travel at night. A zombie’s ability to hunt won’t be hindered by darkness, but yours will.
You guys make me scared that this is actually happening now..
Adding on to the duct tape idea, wear duct tape on your feet intsead of shoes. It will protect your feet but also muffle your footsteps if you don’t want to be heard.
