DescriptionHere is a challenge brought on by reading the Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. This can be a crossover with Max Brooks' own World War Z universe or an AU of Resident Evil, or you can create your own zombie-verse.

This is a challenge to write the story of a Class 4 outbreak, where zombie hordes are so massive that the civilization collapses against them. How would Scooby gang fare against an end of the world scenario that had nothing to do with the supernatural? How would they survive? What would be the changes to their relationships and personalities in the desperate struggle?


-It must be a viral zombie plague, in the nature of Solanum (Max Brooks) or T-virus (Resident Evil) though use of these two is not strictly neccessary.
-The "Rage" virus from "28 Days Later", which causes animalistic behavior, however, is not allowed, as its victims can not be classified as zombies.
-It must not take place earlier than 4th season.
-It must contain the answer to the Buffyverse vampire vs. viral zombie question. The answer to the question is up to you (for example, in the World War Z verse, any and all predators or carrion eaters avoid Solanum-infected corpses. Would vampires show the same common sense?)


-Buffy pitching a fit about the unexpected end to the world.
-Willow and/or Tara incinerating a whole load of zombies with fancy spellwork -or a simple big honking fireball.
-Joyce toting a shotgun and saving one or all members of the gang.
-Xander taking potshots at the undead from the roof of the escape vehicle.

Season 4. Buffy and the gang have more than just an ancient spirit to deal with on Thanksgiving. The rest of the dead are hungry, too. M for blood and gore. Maybe a little language. No pairings. Inspired by TtH Challenge 2830.
