My story is not your average run-of-the-mill, “oh I got bit, scratched, attacked!”. As a matter of fact, I got it from making out with my ex-girlfriend. Explained here. She got it from…someone? else, and I ended up with a diluted strain. I’d never think to say I’m thankful, but at least I’m not some brainless monster. For now.
((I spent 95% of my time drawing the stubble on this one. And HOORAY I’ve been waiting for a chance to draw his tongue stud for ages. Haha.))
You'd probably kill me if I tried to hug you, and if you didn't then Hy most certainly would... But you just look like both of you could use a big hug. Can I pleeeease hug you without getting too many pieces of me shredded? D:
Now is your, one and only, golden opportunity. Don’t take it for granted.
Uh.. Hi... I just thought I'd let you know, I had no idea your sweet Hy was dating someone when I asked for those less appropriate requests of her. I couldn't help it, she's a looker. Promise I won't do it again. But we're cool though... right... right?
I’ve been patiently waiting for the right moment to confer with…you. Are you aware that liars smell worse than infected? Yeah. Get out before I teach you what 5 rounds of 10g buckshot to the face feels like.
((Even with multiple references, this was a bitch to draw. Wow.))
Where have you been!? I thought hunters moved quickly!
Do you even remember who I am?? Still reigning KING as the laziest Hunter around this area. With all due respect to my darling Hyena, of course.
((Honestly though. Spent a lot of time hanging out with Hyena’s creator lately, as well as busy with offline life otherwise. The whole “it gets worse before it gets better” thing is no joke. Just means I have a hard time drawing right now. q_q Sorry. This photo was from Metrocon 2012!))
I remember seeing you with a particularly... flamboyant... hunter. One I believe was given the designation "Glittrbutt." What ever happened to that abomination?
What’s with all the obnoxious colours lately? Even with my awful eye-sight, you can’t unsee such atrocities. But ‘Glittrbutt’…..I do everything I can to avoid it. It’s a magnet to Survivors…and Smokers. 8l
Since you're a lady now, do you have zombie periods?
I get all the perks, without consequence!
[ps: Since I’m only female for a “week” that’s only a 1 in 4 chance anyways]
((In my ‘Green Flu’ headcanon, all infected generally become sterile from the sickness. All chemicals are redirected to more basic functions like feeding and protecting territory. Honestly, like animals that know it’s a bad idea to pass on their genes. Haha))
Uhh, so youre getting shot so often? How do you survive a gun shot? And what was the deathliest shot you ever got?
Surprisingly, no. My antisocial efforts (or lack there of) have kept me out of the vicinity of firearms. The sniper encounter is by far the worst. But it seems as if THEE infection, is keeping regular infection from settling in more seriously. It hurts. It hurts a fucking lot. I honestly think I can feel the bullet sometimes….
((I spent way too long on this, holy shit. But as a matter of fact, the bullet is lodged in between the 5th and 6th rib in the back. It rotated upon entry. Only damage being in his right lung and general muscle mass. Dem abs.))
Following HER. For some reason beyond my comprehension, I was obsessively trying to contact my ex after I became sick. Only to realize, she had it much worse. Heh. But the last time I ever saw [heard] her, was a critical moment. I apparently got in line of a sniper trailing her. Good thing he was a bad shot, or I’d be gone.
((This is mildly anti-climactic, I apologize. Lacking talent in the story-boarding portion of my art. But the point is there. :U))
On a more serious note here. I would like to be straight-forward in explaining, I am not ENTIRELY “infected” at my current stage of sickness. My ex-girlfriend, as shown, passed on a diluted strain of the ‘Green Flu’ to me. That bitch. Or rather, Witch? HAHA. How she procured it, I do not want to know. But I am….thankful, per say. It allows me to retain conscious thought, memories and make intelligent decisions. For now.
So, honestly. I HAVE NO IDEA, nor give a shit. Yet it seems I became infected in an ironic fashion? *sigh*
What do you think about the other special infected? Do you know some?
Frankly could care less. But over the past 3 yrs, I’ve accumulated what you’d call “friends”. These are the ones I know the most. Doesn’t mean I trust them, but the company is…nice? *grumble* Seen a few other infected with half-a-mind, but prefer not to get involved. Everything else seems to care about nothing but killing. Infected or not; those scrawny survivors are lumped with common in my opinion. My friends may be royally fucked up, but at least they’re not stupid.
((This is excluding his old “Pack” of about 6-7 Hunters only. They all have kind of dropped out of contact, literally and figuratively.))
I’m already having A TON of fun with these, and would love to conquer more of your questions as we go along. But I’m at a “stand-still” as far as being in-character goes.
Cobalt/Damien is, well, the essentially genuine douchebag (aside from when he’s with Hyena). And I fear portraying him as described, would play off badly. Cob would frankly think you’re all damn stupid for even bothering stopping by and replies would be FAR more snarky and rude [I’ve kept it pretty tame so far]. <XD;; haha. But I’d rather not everyone think *I* am a jerkwad and don’t appreciate your questions/follows/time.
Well it wasn’t by choice, per say. In my graceful attempts to escape Mercy Hospital upon the chaos, there was this situation. After hiding out temporarily, I noticed others (whom I didn’t identify as “infected” at the time) using tape more strategically. And went from there.
Also a great personal touch in warning to leave me the hell alone. :|
