So, despite my best intentions, I have 1300 words worth of world-building for a zombie fic. There's a further 800 words of character development. I'm slowly working through an origin story, and [personal profile] katsuko has done what will be the prologue.

So, yeah, apparently we're working on zombie fic now. I'm not sure how I feel about that. But we have the beginnings of a rather in depth world with characters that are still recognizable, despite the vastly AU setting. I've been asking the questions about how the world changes with a zombie apocalypse starting in January 1865.

How does this affect the war? Does it still end in April 1865? Does it drag on longer? Does it end sooner? How does it end? Is President Abraham Lincoln still assassinated? How does society cope with zombies? How does the contagion spread? What is the method of transmission? Where did it start? Do the characters know how it started? Did any of them witness the beginning?

What kind of relationships develop between characters? How do characters meet in this universe? Do the same relationships still form? If so, do they happen at the same time? How do the characters react to the zombie apocalypse? How does it change them from the canon versions?

No, seriously, I've put way too much information into a story that I don't even really want to write. But that doesn't mean I won't write it. Fic group seems interested enough in it. So, yeah, I'm thinking I'll share some of it, the beginnings of the website.

And now I think I'm going to try to finish getting this shit set up and then go the fuck to bed. Later, all.
