There is an array of walking dead fiction out there that's the victim of miscasting i guess is the best word. I mean, are you going to have lacy undies in the zombie apocalypse? Is the cute, precocious, loudly chatty child really going to work in a world where the predatory swarm is drawn to loud noises and bright lights? These things may work in regular fics but when you throw them in the zombie apocalypse, not quite. You could have the lacy undies but honesty are they going to look cute and sexy or be jacked up from having to be hand washed an worn almost everyday if you're short on clothes. And the child may start out adorable and chatty but after living in the harshness of zombie peril, would they stay that way or would they learn the quiet equals a measure of safety?

And lets not forget the hygiene issues that are associated with the undead masses overrunning the earth. I don't know if some of these writers are watching the same show I am but there are various elements in the world building of the show that some people seem to be ignoring. It's not even that there is bad writing afoot, just a few stories with elements that seem really out of place or not there at all in the walking dead universe.

Then of course there are the daryl/ofc stories. But that's a post for another day.

Question: where is the epic Resident Evil/ Walking dead crossover I'm mentally salivating over. To me this is begging to be written. The Umbrella Corporation is evil enough to cross fandoms like awesome badassness.

And we aren't clear on how the zombie apocalypse started in the walking dead'verse. There's potential here, I can't be the only one who's thought of this!

I've been enjoying the Walking Dead marathons on AMC. I don't like Lori much, mainly because I feel like she's made a lot of bad decisions. I mean, it's the zombie apocalypse if you turned to your husbands best friend for comfort in the wake of the crazy fine; but it seems obvious she didn't ask a lot of questions about her husbands death as we saw in the season one flashback. But not telling Rick about her thing with Shane and not breaking up with Shane cleanly weren't smart in such a small group of people who are pretty much living on top of each other to survive. Avoiding each other is a little tough under these circumstances. I can see she's a tough woman but she's made some questionable decisions, they all have honestly.
