Totally random, but as I read this story, I thought, "Hmm... this should be a question someone should ask the boys. What's their blood type?" Yanno, incase we face a zombie apocalypse like this! ;) LOL. :P
As I've mentioned before, as I watch The Walking Dead, all I think about is this story. And knowing that show came out wayyy after your fic, and having only catching up on it now while the show exists, I can't help than to make comparisons and be convinced that the writers and producers totally stole this concept from ya'll and based this show off your story. ;) LOL.
Of course, reading this chapter made me think of the boy that was shot. I love the twist of them learning that they're all coincidentally B+. That was a good theory they had in mind, with perhaps that was the reason why they were immune to the virus. Having that said, I love yet another twist ya'll threw in it with it, with Brian voicing that he doesn't believe it's their blood type that made them immune to the virus because of his daughters. It would've been the easier route to run with the fact that their blood type made them immune... but, ya'll took the challenging route, which I'm glad ya'll did! :D
Poor Howie though. :( I could just vision how much blood he had loss from the incident, and the way you guys described Jo's reaction to it upon running in and seeing him for the first time. I like how, even though she's a nurse, you guys still touched upon the fact that she can equally be affected from the status of a patient like the rest of us. I could SEE her, placing her hand over her mouth and shaking her head, like she didn't know how she'd be able to do this. And, of course, LOVE the relation to the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme, that was PERFECT!!
But, for now, I'm glad Howard is on the mend and I can't wait to go on to the next chapter! ^_^ (See Rose, I TOLD YOU I was reading it! :P Now what, suckkah?!? :P)
Author's Response: Wow, I think this is the longest review we've ever gotten! You rock, Reb! LOL I would really like to know the Boys' blood types, too, because I've had to guess in several fanfics, and I make it something different every time. I've gotta be right one of these times! It's flattering to be compared to The Walking Dead, cause that show is epic, but I know what you mean; sometimes we watch and go, "OMG, that is so Undead!!" But we've borrowed ideas from zombie movies and books, so ya know, everyone just kinda recycles the classic zombie ideas LOL. Thanks for the compliments about this chapter; glad you liked it and are catching up! This is good motivation for me to do some writing this weekend, which I plan on!!

Yay for another update! *cues music* Have I told you lately that I love you? Lol! Great chap! Interesting that they all have the same blood type. Seems like Howie is going to survive. I sure hope so. Love the part when Jo is thinking about "not being able to work on family members" at the hospital. I'm glad they see themselves that way. Like the med alert bracelet bit. It's very characteristic of Howie to not want to advertise his "weakness." Love the whole "prayer circle" around Howie as well. Great job! You ladies never let me down :)
Author's Response: Thanks Sel! LOL We love you too!! I think this chapter is going to be an important one for the bonds they have with each other. They definitely are one big family now. Glad you liked the chapter, and thanks for your review! :)

Thank god for Jo and her medical skills! Good thing they were all B+ too. I'm glad Howie is going to be OK.
I'm making myself late for work to read this chapter, but it's worth it :)
Author's Response: Thanks Steph! LOL we knew we were gonna need someone with medical skills around! Hope you weren't too late for work LOL... thanks for being such a dedicated reader! ;)

Wow wow wow. So much to say about this chapter. How ironic that everybody has the same blood type....I'm glad that Howie survived. Loved how his watch was also his medical id bracelet, that was clever. I like how everyone pulled together for Howie like that....it was wonderful. Amazing chapter and glad that the cliffhanger came to a head!
Author's Response: Thanks for the great review, Tracy! Glad you liked the chapter! It was a fun one to write; we'd had this idea planned for like two years, so it felt great to finally get there!

love this chapter!!!! And it was a good bit of info, on making everyone the same blood type, at least now there is a clue to why they are still alive.....really good job on saving howie, thank you for not letting him die
Author's Response: Thanks so much, glad you enjoyed it! This was definitely an important one for that.
