Mankind or Clementine?

Please read before vote.
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?

  • @BlackBoxx said: 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.

    I mean place AS a Woodbery, with lab. Place who well guarded, where many people lives, their childrens who will vaccination can begin to rebuild civilization.

  • @BlackBoxx said: How would the vaccine make that any different? All it does is prevent someone from becoming a zombie, which is just as easily accomplished with a hammer. It doesn't eliminate all the existing ones (which greatly outnumber the living). It doesn't prevent bites from killing. So how would a pocket-sized vial of a vaccine that only stops you from becoming a zombie after death be able to save anyone?

    How would word of the vaccine get out?
    How many doses are there?

    How would every woman who is pregnant be able to get a hold of it?

    This vaccine just wouldn't fix anything. However, Clementine alone could probably prevent more zombies than a tiny vial could.

    Eventually it would end the ZA.

  • @Nuked said: Eventually it would end the ZA.

    HOW? Given the chance, there are laboratorys who could reproduce this stuff. Who says, you have the right specialists? Who says you have the right resoruces. Who says, you have enough time to craft it?

    And even if you just have that one vaccine and give it to the first pregnant woman you find, her child wouldn't be able to reanimate by simply dying and maybe her child and every child her childs make. It would take half a millenia to repopulate the world with non-infected humans.

  • @Robbingrobin said: Are you stupid?

    no need to call people stupid :eek: :rolleyes:

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

    We're talking about a 60 pound girl for fucks sake... I don't know your physique, but for someone well built, 60 pounds + air pressure/wind is nothing, even before you factor in adrenaline that allows a normal person to lift a fucking 2-ton car. If the force isn't enough to break her thin little girl arm, it isn't enough to keep me from pulling her in.

  • @zev_zev said: I mean place AS a Woodbery, with lab. Place who well guarded, where many people lives, their childrens who will vaccination can begin to rebuild civilization.

    That can be done just as easily, maybe even more so, without the vaccine. We already have a means of preventing a person from turning. With time, it will become little more than a routine procedure when someone dies.

    As I said in my other posts, it doesn't matter if you can prevent new ones from forming when the zombies outnumber the living to such an extent. You are still living in constant fear that there will be one that sneaks up on you, you get surrounded, you mistake one for dead or one gets in your camp while you sleep. That is the threat of the zombie apocalypse. Once it hits a certain point, trying to kill them all is just a pipe dream.

    The convenience of not having to destroy the brain when someone dies is not worth the life of someone with so much potential. Now, had you said you had a means to kill all zombies across the globe at once, then I'd start considering it, but that's just not gonna happen.

    Sorry to be so forward with all of this. I just really like Clementine as a character that much. I hope I'm not being rude, or coming across as angry. I'll admit I'm probably being overly passionate over a video game character. I've said my piece, so if I'm bothering you or hijacking your thread, please say something and I'll back off.

  • @Nuked said: Without the cure you'll lose more loved ones anyway, including the one you saved.

    That has always been the way life is. Weather it be from old age, natural causes, cancer, murder, or walkers. Death is death. The only difference in TWD universe is after you die you reanimate. So why sacrifice an innocent girl you love?

    Don't apologize, it's good that you have protected your opinion, I created this topic to let people explains their decisions.

    I started laughing at this part. Please, go in more depth with this.
    Anyways, I would rather save the mankind. But that's because I don't have the choice to save both.

    Why? What's so funny? I described the scene as it would be in the game.
