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: Then they become a single zombie. Easy to dispatch/avoid when discovered. The vaccine won't stop them from dying in the first place. At that point, it's nothing like the first days of the outbreak where no one knows what's going on. People see a zombie, they know what to do. They won't mistake them for a rioter, or a sick person. That new zombie won't be doing much damage, if any. The only people left are the ones who learned how to survive.

    I agree that a long term solution is needed. This vaccine isn't it. It simply has too many conditions that are too difficult to meet. I'd rather keep as many people alive so that when a true answer is found (one that eradicates zombies on a global scale), things can actually begin to recover.

    What makes you sure another cure will be found. More people die everyday. Thus go down the number of doctors and scientist.

  • Crawford seemed like it knew what it was doing. All survivors, all people who can "pull their weight." There was doctors, supplies, no burdens. Regardless of all that, look how easy it fell. All of that could have been avoidable if those people were the "vaccine'd." It shows how fragile civilizations are in their universe.

    Although my comments just seem to be completely ignored in this topic so I'll just be going now. ;)

    Yep one person died, and it set off a chain.

  • To me the fall of Crawford was pretty unrealistic. I bet the people of Crawford knew how to take down a walker (Brain damage), unlike the military for example. And since they are a survival group, even one guy must have been an effective zombie-killer.
    I'm not sure if they knew that bites cause a fatal infection, but I'm pretty sure any guy bit was gonna get shot by his fellow Crawforders.
    Also, the sudden disappearance of the weapons was weird too. Most of the weapons would be lying around in the corridors and streets of Crawford, if they got killed by walkers.

  • I choose the vaccine, because I love Clementine. Seriously, think about this: Clem would blame myself for everything she can never be happy thinking that because of her mankind has lost a chance at salvation. Goddamn, it's too difficult decision.

  • About Crawford. Crawford was fall, because Anna Korea, was shoot a lot of people, then they became the walkers, because of virus. This is another reason to saving vaccine.

  • @CarScar said: in the heat of moment, would you be able to let her go? I don't think I would be. My rational mind would be completely subdued. That's what love does, right?

    Exactly, when playing the game it turns to slow motion, but if you actually were in that situation, you wouldn't have time to think, you'd just do what your instinct tells you: save your loved ones.

    How about adrenalin? In a dangerous situation, all the senses of a person are exacerbated, and it seems that the time drags on for a long time, although in fact we only have a few seconds.

  • There is no salvation through the fucking vaccine, humanity could achieve not by itself. But apperantly the most people here are not able to get that. THE WORLD IS FUCKING HUGE AND NOT JUST THE US. What helps you to disinfect a child in the US, when south america, aslaska and canada is still fucking swarming with the dead. And how do you get kerosine, to carry it across the atlantic? Internet? Phone?

    In the vaccine lies no salvation at all. The humanity itself is the only thing that can helps itself to deal with the crisis, getting a new world and starting to create a new civilisation, before they built another global system, they have centuries, maybe even more.

    With the right rules, community can exist, just dealing with the death by itself. A law to register, closer goverment actually checking for everybody, nightwatchers and similiar things. Soon the economy starts to blossom again. There could be ceremonies and or other systems to prevent people, which die to reanimate (which I admit, could be hard, since people don't now the time frame, a corpse turns.)

    Yeah, well the armed guards must have taken her down in a minute. I highly doubt she killed any of the Crawford's trained soldiers.
