Yay, more updates! I loved the Harry Potter comparisons. I'm glad that Gabby seems to have found a friend. :) And I like Alistair, he reminds me of "Mad-Eye" Moody. Hey, his name was Alastor, too! ;) Great work.
Author's Response: Thanks!! You know we love us some Harry Potter, and I'm glad you noticed the Alistair/Alastor thing - I totally had Mad-Eye in mind when I wrote that character. It was especially fitting because we've been paying homage to our favorite British zombie movies with some of these characters, and Brendan Gleeson (Moody) was also in 28 Days Later. Glad you enjoyed - thanks again for the review! :)

How embarrassing was that for Gabby! The castle may not have the luxuries they are used to, but at least it's safe. Maybe in time they'll be able to go off and find a generator from somewhere like an industrial estate and then have things like electricity. I like the thought of exploring and I'm glad she ran into Callum, they could be good friends.
So good to see two updates when I logged on today :) Love it!
Author's Response: LOL I know, that would be the most awkward thing ever for a 13-year-old girl! Looking for a generator is a good idea, so they could maybe get some electricity. I think it would be fun to explore a castle too. Glad you enjoyed the updates - thanks, Steph!! :)

I can understand their reluctance to leave, but hopefully they will like their new home in England. I loved the way Nick slid out of the plane, guns blazing! And AJ as always with his way with words, lol.
That castle sounds a bit like one here near where I live called Castell Coch, it looks like a fairy tale castle and when it's lit up at night it looks stunning.
Author's Response: Lol gotta love Nick right? Guess we'll see if they like it enough to stay for good. It certainly seems safer lol. I'm glad you enoyed Aj, he's so twisted lol. Thanks Steph! We hope we can keep this up lol.

OMG! I just went from cpt 94 to this one since I haven't had time the last few weeks to read and wow! I seriously doubted they would ever leave the base! I can't wait to read more!!
Author's Response: Thanks for catching up, and glad you're still enjoying it! We wanted to eventually answer the question of whether or not our group of survivors were alone in the world, so we thought it would be interesting to have them go somewhere else and mix with other survivors. Thanks for the review!!

Happy to see this updated so regularly now :) Poor Gabby lol that is not a fun problem to have. Loved the harry potter references as well, awesome chapter!
Author's Response: We are too!! We're entering the final stretch here (well, we still have like 20 chapters to go, but in the grand scheme of things, it's starting to wrap up), so hopefully we'll be able to keep updating it regularly. Glad you liked the chapter! Any time we can make HP references, we're happy LOL. Thanks, Tracy!!

Thru Twitter, I'm taking it that Rose wrote most of this chapter..but I can certainly see Julie's "influence" in it...specially with THIS gem of a line:
"Hey, that reminds me, I still need to chop off your leg and replace my lucky rabbit’s foot,” AJ teased, snickering." Choppage FTMFW!!!!!
I can't tell you how hard I laughed! I LOVE you two!! And this chapter! Glad they landed safe and can't wait for their new "adventures" in London! The castle is a GREAT idea! More please!
Author's Response: Lol I did, though actually that line was all me. Julie did happen to love it lol. Glad you like the castle idea! What better type of place to use over in Europe than a castle? Thanks Jen!

Ah, but as you have painfully learned, safety is not guaranteed, Riley. Thanks for another update.
Author's Response: So true, though to be fair, that castle definitely would look to be a better stronghold lol. Thanks MA

Wow another update :D loving this! I say it all the time but I love the Nick and Riley dynamic. I'm glad they made it to Europe safely, I'm eager to find out what will happen next. Great chapter girls!
Author's Response: Yep! I was on a roll...hopefully we keep it up! LOL. Thank you, it's well known romance isn't exactly my (Rose) forte, so I'm glad their dynamic comes across the way I want to. Thanks Tracy!

I knew something bad was going to happen! I can't imagine this taking place in Europe, but that'll be exciting. Thanks so much for the updates!
Author's Response: LOL of course, we can't give something without messing up something else. That's just no fun :P. Thank you so much for staying with us despite the delays!

The gate was bothering him earlier, he should've trusted his instinct about it. I had a feeling the zombies would crash the party, but at least everyone survived, what a relief!
I can understand them not wanting to leave and go to Europe, they don't know what it's like there and they've become so used to the base. But if life is better over there, I'm sure it'll be the right move.
Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: He really should have, but sadly, Kevin's as human as everyone else in the group. They're just lucky no one was killed...knowing how the two of us are LOL. We'll see if it's the right move or not, but really, what choice do they have! Thankies!

Loving this as I always am. Just wanted to say i wasn't into horror type stuff until I read this story, now I'm watching zombie movies, and really loving gore so I blame the two of you. Great update, I am not so sure about the last line of this chapter.....damn it. Can't wait for more! This is still my favorite fanfic :)
Author's Response: Awww glad we could convert you! Mwahahahaha... gore is epic LOL. We'll happily take the blame! Thanks Tracy!
Date: 02/24/12 10:53 pm Title: Chapter 95
I'm sad they have to leave the place they've all come to know as home. But, hopefully, it will be safer there for all of them..speciall for Gretch and the baby. I'm sure you guys will make it an "exciting" trip...lol
Great chapter once again!
Author's Response: Right? But they didn't have much of a choice. Thanks Jen!

Wow, just wow! Amazing chapter and so many answers too. Great idea to immunize people against it through donated blood, but it's just a real tragedy that the virus was created in the first place. I suppose stuff like that could really happen though, what a chilling thought. I hope that evil dictator got eaten by a zombie!
Well done at the awards too, you two both deserve it!
Can't wait for more and to see how it all ends. I'll be sorry to see an end though as I've loved this story since the very first chapter was posted.
Author's Response: Thanks Steph! We've had this as the reason since day one. It's just SO nice to finally reveal it! It took forever but now you know why. You're right, something like this could happen, which for us, just made it even more obvious a choice lol. Hopefully he was eaten before he changed, maybe he was eaten while wearing a gas mask :P. Thanks about the awards, congrats on all yours too! The end is coming, though we still have chapters to go before we do. And honestly, we'll be just as sad to leave our zombies behind :(. Thanks again!
