Open for Art Commissions. I write gay romantic comedies with ponies now. Get off my back, MOM.

What better basis for a romance than casual undead acquaintanceship during the snowpocalypse?


Rated Teen due to mild violence. Nothing graphic.

Inspired by the movie Warm Bodies

I absolutely loved this, it was a very interesting tale that got me to actually want things to get better for him. :heart:

Looooved this story. A very interesting take on a zombie apocalypse.

“Excuse me!” Zephyr called out. “I have a complaint about your taste buds!”

Pony Karen would like to speak to the zombie's manager.

Hah! So cute.

I was a big fan of Warm Bodies (book not movie) so the premise really works for me. As does the worldbuilding; I love that you took the basic premise of a piece of media and made it your own. And the worldbuilding leaves enough room for mystery that I want more.

The characterization is so much fun. Zephyr shines as a somewhat unreliable narrator; he's relentlessly optimistic, but is clearly covering up his trauma. I love that everything is filtered through his absurd priorities and worldview, it adds the right touch of comedy and lightens what would otherwise be a rather dark story.

Thank you. This is perfect.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Am also shocked you actually knew what Warm Bodies was (I didnt actually know there was a book and now feel a need to find it), that was not something I expected anyone to know going in and that you knew it was a happy coincidence. Also, yes, I, uh, have a want of writing more of this with the sequel probably being Undead dont make for good husbands because I like the naming convention and Zephyr is way too much fun to write.

Anyways, I am very happy you liked it! Merry Jinglemas
