Mankind or Clementine?

Just a my fiction, but if in the final season (Ending of Clementine story) we got a vaccine ( I know that Robert Kirkman says that naver happen in TWD world).
So you got a vaccine in our equipment, this vaccine can help newborn children to be be uninfected forever (only newborns). Vaccine works this way: If pregnant woman will injecting vaccine to her stomach at the second month of pregnancy, then her child will be uninfected forever, if he dies he will not turn, but bite is still deadly.
You flying away from military base who was attacked a horde of walkers, you planning to flying by big cargo plane with Clementine, and with pregnant girl-pilot ( for example Lilly who has got romance with main character, and gets pregnancy from him few days ago; Now is the first month of pregnancy ). Plane are ready to take off , but the cargo compartment is full of walkers. Clem, you, and pilot are in cockpit, you have closed the door to cockpit, and walkers can't get you in here. The engines included, you sit on second pilot place, and pull back on the steering wheel. The plane begins to take off. A pregnant girl-pilot opened the cargo compartment, and a lot of walkers are falling out of the plane. Suddenly door to cockpit has busted, and some walkers were going inside. Clementine pulled out a gun (Colt M1911) and says:
-"Don't worry I'll take care of this"
- You: "What? Hell no. That's dangerous, you can't do that! Sit here!"
- Clementine: "Of course I can, I'm ten years old, remember?" *smiles*
*bang* *bang*
The plane quickly begins to gain in height, and is tilted upward at a sharp angle. The last walker to enter the cockpit grabs Clementine by the leg. In a frantic moment, she grabs the handle to the cockpit door in a desperate attempt to stay alive, but not before forever losing her precious baseball cap to the current.
-Clementine: Aaaaaah... Aaaaah. HELP! PLEASE!
- You: "HOLD ON CLEM!"
You shoot the walker from your rifle, and caught her by her hand, you hold her in two hands.
*sad music starts* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iOiBH4xIbg
-Clementine *nearly crying*: "PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T LET ME GO!"
-You: "I hold you! Do you hear me?! I hold you! It's ok hun, it's ok, just hold on!"

Ampoule with vaccine are falling out of your pocket. *Time slows down* ( as like drugstore when you must choose Carley or Doug).

If you attempt to catch the ampoule with one hand, you are unable to hold onto Clementine, because you had got a bullet wound on your left shoulder one week ago. And so your precious symbol of innocence is lost forever.

If you continue to hold Clementine, the ampoule containing the vaccine falls out of the plane, effectively dooming the human race to a continuous cycle of infection.

You've got six seconds to make a choose *in slow motion* before the ampule wjth vaccine will falling out of you pocket.

If you will do nothing in this six seconds, Clem will noticing that ampule are falling out. Then she will looking to the vaccine, and saying "Goodbye", she will relaxing her hand, and falling down. You will catching ampule, then you will trying to grab Clem's hand, but it will too late.

What would you choose?

  • The vaccine is hope for mankind you know... people will still die without being bitten. People who survive alone and starve, or dehydrate, or take a bad fall, or get sick, or bleed to death. Plenty of people are going to die from non-walker related injuries. If they're born without the ability to come back unless bitten, then it means that in time, if humanity DOES overcome the walkers and begins to rebuild, the chances of the apocalypse happening again greatly diminish. Hell, overcoming the walkers may even be easier further down the line, because you won't have to worry about your best friend turning if he dies from a cold, or if he bleeds out and turns when you ahve your back to him. While a vaccine may not do much in the short run, if you look at the big picture, saving Clem is just selfish as hell. I don't believe that Lee and Clem are worth more than an entire species.

  • @zev_zev said: There are only one ampule vaccine, but it can be copied if there is the necessary equipment. If pregnant woman will injecting vaccine to her stomach at five's month of pregnancy, then her child will be uninfected forever, if he dies he will not turn, but bite is still deadly.

    If it can be copied, it can be recreated. A small vial lost is nothing. I understand how to apply a vaccine, but how will these women get to it? It's still a zombie apocalypse out there. Communications are down. Travel is dangerous, doubly so for pregnant women. How will they even hear about it? This vaccine won't do anything. Saving Clementine will will do wonders, even if it is only in a small scope of the world.

    Like I said, if all it does is prevent a dead person from turning, then it's not worth losing someone you care for (Clementine) in order to save it. A hammer will prevent a dead person from turning just as well, only messier. I can deal with a mess. If it doesn't end the zombie apocalypse, I'm not even gonna entertain the thought of sacrificing someone.

  • Assuming I can't hold onto a 60 pound girl with one arm? The choice would make itself, I would keep both.

    If the vaccine will get in a place like Woodbery (read comics) and if this place would has a lab with necessary equipment then there are all the chances to restore civilization one hundred years later, maybe early. Vaccine can't be recreated because the scientists who knows the formula died when horde of walkers attacked military base.

    Why would you do this to our poor souls anyway...? :c

  • @Riadon said: Assuming I can't hold onto a 60 pound girl with one arm?

    Try to open a window or door in the plane who already flying, and then you will understand why.

  • I still the vaccine is a pipe dream. Save Clem. Hell, if this would really happen, and I play the main character who has impregnated a woman, I'd choose my pregnant woman over clem, but when it says: "Clem or the vaccine, which does that my child doesn't turn, when it dies, but doesn't protect it from the virus at all", I'd always pick clem.

  • @Robbingrobin said: "Clem or the vaccine, which does that my child doesn't turn, when it dies, but doesn't protect it from the virus at all", I'd always pick clem.

    This is how vaccine works. Did you thought that the vaccine can be sprayed from aircraft for the whole country and all instantly healed? No, the process of the healing of humankind takes a lot of time.

    Again, HOW? Even if Woodbury has the vaccine (I have read the comic recently), how is it going to reach other people? There are still billions of zombies out there. It doesn't matter if a small child who dies doesn't get back up. There are billions of other zombies out there already eating anything they find. They are the problem, not the remaining population turning into more. The lore of the comics/game already has a way to prevent people from turning, so we don't need some fancy vaccine to survive. It's better to prevent people from dying in the first place, which your vaccine doesn't do.

  • you people are nuts. I'd choose Clem over a baby. A baby has zero chance of surviving on his/her own; Clem has a possibility.
