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?

    Sorry. Twas time for me to sleep after my last post.

    I'm not sure a cure will be found. I said an answer. Remember, the problem isn't the infection, it's the current number of zombies. There's just far too many of them for humanity to be safe, even if they no longer turn into them. A campaign to kill all walkers is just as much answer, though it is nigh impossible the way the world is in the series. Instead, all the living people need to learn how to prevent zombies while being on constant lookout for more.

    This vaccine is too limited to represent true hope. It only works on newborn children. That mean every person still alive will still become zombies. It will take who knows how long before your scenario of a person dying alone and their zombie surprising people to no longer be a possibility. Thus, humanity will still need to learn how to deal with the infection for several more years. Brains will still need destruction until the uninfected greatly outnumber the infected. Humanity is more likely to die out before that happens unless they learn to deal with it, which has been my suggestion the whole time.

    How many women will be having children in this environment? My guess is not many. It's too much of a risk. The pregnant woman slowly loses the ability to do things by herself. She needs more resources, especially food than normal. The childbirth itself can be fatal for both mother and child. When all is said and done, even if the child is born safely, they will cause even more danger with their instinct to cry for attention. I suppose women could be forced to get pregnant, but that would just open a whole other can of worms there. We've seen how tyrannies and dictatorships work in the Walking Dead.

    So, pregnant women will either be at significant risk, or they will be in a secure community like Woodbury or Crawford. As we've seen, those places are not 100% secure. Ignorance and complacency doomed Crawford (never considered that living people may be able to cause more damage than zombies). Arrogance doomed Woodbury (a single person who thought he could take whatever he wanted caused a chain of events that got several of his people killed).

    The vaccine isn't going to save anything. I'm not letting Clem die for so much nothing.

    You beat me to it!

    I'd pick mankind.

  • @Nuked said: This is assuming you're just gonna find another vaccine down the road. What about people who die alone? Whose brains cant be destroyed before the turn? It's a problem that will never truly go away without some sort of long term solution.

    You are avoiding statistics. I have already said that there is a possibility Clem gets bit and dies. I said there is a possibility the Cure will fail in saving humanity.
    The chances of Clem surviving is much higher than the cure providing a "long term solution."

    Choosing Clem does not make me greedy, I dont know where your getting that from. I dont want Clem to survive because I would be lonely without her or something, I have a wife-pilot with a child on the way remember? I want Clem to live because she is innocent. She is hope. She is Love. She deserves to live.

    Like I said before, they are in a plane, they could easily fly to an island off the shores of the US or even farther. US Cargo plains have ridiculous amounts of fuel in them. that situation is actually quite possible and probable.

    There is less than 1% chance everything will go right with your cure saving humanity. There is nothing greedy about listening to reason.

  • @Robbingrobin said: 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.)

    You know a vaccine can be copied right?

  • @Nuked said: You know a vaccine can be copied right?

    I stop trying here, you will never get it. Hopeless case.

    What happened to Lee and Kenny would suggest differently. And what do you think would be the chances of her living to become an adult? What other long term solution is there? You don't just give up on something because it might not work.

  • @Robbingrobin said: I stop trying here, you will never get it. Hopeless case.

    You keep telling yourself that.

  • @Nuked said: What happened to Lee and Kenny would suggest differently. And what do you think would be the chances of her living to become an adult? What other long term solution is there? You don't just give up on something because it might not work.

    That's just what you are talking about too, we don't give up Clem although she might die, same goes for you and the vaccine.

    Except Clem does absolutely nothing to potentially end the ZA.

  • @Nuked said: Except Clem does absolutely nothing to potentially end the ZA.

    she is a kid means she'll potentially live longer than an adult, means at least she delays the extinction of the human race, if she manages to survive that long, one day she'll have kids of her one perhaps. Kids are worthy for mankind in a ZA.
