December 5 "I am hurt badly. I don’t know what to do."
December 6 " Fucking dog hit me like an all-pro linebacker and took me out at the hips. The inside of my left thigh exploded in pain as it sank its teeth into the meat below my balls."
December 7 " I have to go downtown. Fuck."
December 8 " What’s that Mr. Journal? You want to hear the bad news? Oh there’s plenty of that still left to share sir."
December 10 " I couldn’t tell at the time if it was a person, or a zombie, so I just reacted on gut instinct. I punched the motherfucker in the side of the head."
Exodus "No.” Charles looked back her. “The people in the high school have no need for us. You’re an accountant, and I’m a civil engineer. Abby has no usable skills and Randy will irritate them almost immediately. "
December 12 "My best friend in the Army was a guy that I met right after I went into my unit. Kevin Whitten."
December 13 "It’s funny that I have no problem at all wandering downtown into a horde of undead to face potential death, but the thought of saying something to a girl puts jelly in my knees. "
December 15 "How out of your fucking mind do you have to be to go after a guy my size that’s holding a shotgun?"

December 22 " Here’s the mindfuck of the day: Red Foxes have their litters in Spring."
December 24 "I don’t know. I just feel really good about things today. I feel like things are finally turning the corner. I think it’s because of Gilbert."
December 25 "Merry fucking Christmas."
December 27 " “I am Sean, I’m one of the council members from Westfield down the way. We followed some people here and wanted to touch base to see if we could establish a relationship."

January 6 "All I’m going to do with this entry is make an official first inventory of our arsenal."
January 8 "Gilbert joined me as I cleaned the knife off on her jacket. He filled me in on the details as I wiped the blood off my face yet again. Apparently they’d started shooting at him when he went to check on the truck. He had no idea why."
January 10 "Heavy lies the head that wears the crown. I get that now. Really."
January 11 "But most of all, he said what’s done is done, and we needed to make it through our trials before any salvation came to us. Redemption is earned, not given. It definitely took a weight off me I didn’t know I was carrying after talking to him. Gilbert Donohue ftw."

January 13 "When was the last time I mentioned I loved venison Mr. Journal?"
January 15 "Patty burst into the doorway of the garage, rifle up, and was yelling my name. She couldn’t see shit though, and luckily didn’t shoot me as I told her it was okay."

January 18 "I think I’m being betrayed. I think we are being betrayed. I’m not sure yet."
January 19 "Everyone is dead or dying, scraping out some kind of life out of the ruins. Just like us."
January 21 "His right hand was pointed at the watch, and slowly, one tap a time, his index finger tapped the yellowing face of the watch. Tap. Tap. Tap."

January 25 "Brian, this town is dead. Deceased. There is no more town, there is no more state, and there is no more America. It’s like the clock got rewound back to the 1100’s man. We’re feudal lords fighting over land and resources again. It sucks, but that’s the fucking reality. Only the strongest survive right?"
January 27 "Alright Mr. Journal, there is a downside to bringing women on house cleaning duty: They take everything. I mean everything."
January 29 "I’m in business folks. And it went smooth as a ninja shit being pushed down the drain by a toe. Awww yeah boy!"
January 30 "That motherfucker."
January 31 "He shook his head, “Adrian, I have never lied to you. I have not told you things a few times that made my situation better son, but at no point have I bald faced lied to you."

February 4 "I always miss some stupid little detail that winds up becoming really relevant later on. Sigh."
February 6 "You know.. I lost my fucking sword."
February 7 "Gilbert easily could’ve killed him while he was passed out."
February 9 "One shot, one kill. Man that’d be ideal. Then I could go back to just worrying about the armada of undead that’s slowly creeping down the road to my home. "
February 11 "I was set up in my hide drinking a can of Red Bull at 4am. I did see a single zombie shuffle down the road at 9am. It was an old lady wearing a floral print bathrobe."
February 13 "Man I’m an idiot some days."
February 14 " I miss my woman. I hate being lonely. I’ll leave it at that."
Valentines Day "PING, went the aluminum bat off the temple of a zombie. The damn thing stank of old cheese and farts she realized with a dry heave. " PREMIUM MEMBERS ONLY
February 16 " First off, I think I should trust Gilbert’s instincts more."
February 18 " Did you see that zombie’s outfit!?!? OH MY GAWD! SO TACKY!"

March 8 "Lisa and Mike both thought that we should abandon campus, and relocate to the Westfield school."
March 9 "Adrenaline rocks."
Sweetest Amy "Amy swallowed hard. His expression said a lot. Ring was a veteran, and she knew the scuttle butt on campus said he had been in the shit in Iraq. If he said it was bad, then it was bad. Really bad."
March 11 "Even without the zombie threat over our heads, the cold was a bastard. Of course, once the zombies start showing up, you start to forget about how cold it is."
March 12 "I radioed to the girls and Gilbert that I’d gotten a deer and a cheer came back. I tell you what, fresh meat and hide goes a long way towards cheering folks up."
March 14 "After that discussion Mike made the expected announcement that Gavin was interested in coming here too. Now as much as we want Abby to be happy, we desperately need this to be worked out clearly, and make sure that Gavin understands the reality that moving here for a girl might not be the best idea."
March 16 "I’d like to go back to my home, and see if Cassie made it back there before she died."

March 26 "I don’t know why, but I’ve dreamt of Steve."
March 27 "Fuck you apocalypse, I’ve still got a video game agenda."

March 31 "The more I hang out with Ollie and Melissa, the more I like them."

The Siege of Mildenhall " Nearly twenty years of experience kicked in for the team, and with one simultaneous action, each man fired a double tap into the chest and head of the man."
April 9 "There’s always drama when people collect together. Always."
April 11 "Almost as crazy as hearing that your nana died while dressed as a French maid in a S&M club while being DP’d by a horse and a donkey."
April 13 "Inside was a baby seat in the back, with a half eaten, undead young boy still belted into it. I shot him in the face as he reached out with tiny little fingers to get me."
April 15 "I basically said it’d been a very long time since my you-know-what got stuck in a woman’s you-know-what, and it was high time I addressed the issue."
April 17 "I’m fucking hardcore loony for vagina right now."
April 18 "His wallet was on the floor just beyond his legs, propped open to a picture of his family. He and his wife Amanda had two kids."
April 19 "Furthermore, WHERE THE FUCK IS THE GOVERNMENT?"
April 21 " Protip #1: winching a chainlink fence post out of the ground with the HRT is a big old bucket of fail."
The Golden Palace " You’ve pissed yourself son.” The tall man pointed at Zach’s wet crotch. Zach looked down at the dark wet stain, and nodded meekly."
April 23 " The good news is this: stupid people die, and leave their shit behind."
April 25 " I need to go on record and say officially that Mike is a straight up badass."
April 27 " I was out setting up a safe house downtown today. And I got shot in the chest."

Providence "The dead boy cocked his head sideways as she talked to him, which was about as conversational as he ever got."

May 8 “So let me get this straight, there’s a farm growing food, making babies, and keeping people safe out there somewhere, and you all want to go over, and rock the boat to make sure everything is kosher?”

May 12 "The mom and dad exchanged strange looks, and the mom answered me, “well Mr. Adrian, they are strange folk."
May 14 " Lindsey said as far as the eye could see, in every direction heading into the city, were masses of undead. Door to door, streetlight to streetlight, from crushed and exploded car to smashed apart mailbox, were the walking dead."

May 17 "When Adrian gets fucked, he gets royally fucked."
Homecoming "After a minute of gritted teeth Angela caught the eyes of Amanda, and she dropped the blood soaked brick. It hit the pavement with a moist thud. “Nothing touches my family. Not my kid, not your kids, and not you. No fucking way.”
May 19 "Gilbert is also an excellent judge of character, and if he vouches for these people, then I trust his instincts."

Zombie Scissorfight "Mallory wasn’t a murderer. You can’t murder someone who is already dead."

June 10 "10 things I miss"
June 12 "This shit needs to be done for our long term chances at survival."
June 14 " I turned to Gilbert and brought up the subject of the apartment building with the giant pile of garbage around it, as well as the few undead meandering about at the base. Instantly he was curious, and within just a minute or two, he decided that a recon mission was a good idea."
June 16 "Everyone is a shooter first."
Dream a Little Dream "Gilbert closed his eyes in the darkness and let the words sink into his soul. His stomach knotted as his mind came to a stunning conclusion."
June 18 "So yeah. Breach the rooftop door. Clear the fifth floor. Save the princess. "
June 20 "Unfortunately experience has taught us to greet strangers with the business end of our guns, and when I got the door free they got to see Abby and Hector aiming down their throats. I think they were taken aback by it, but oh well kids. "
June 22 "The apartment building shall be known henceforth as the McGreevy-Russell Outpost. Or MGR for short. "
A Traitor's Death "Gilbert turned slightly towards her and looked her in the eyes. She’d never had a moment with Gilbert like this, where he focused everything on her. He was intense, and almost frightening in the dark of night. "
June 23 "The Voice had tried to get him to fuck me over. Me. Not us, not the school not humanity, not anyone else but me. "

(back to top)
July 1 "The few dogs we’ve seen seem skittish as hell, which makes sense, because the majority of people they see are dead, and try to eat them. I imagine the human/dog bond of trust is shot to shit now. "
July 3 "Adrian Gilbert Miller" "
Under the Moroccan Sun "But I know this. A single woman, standing alone in a ring of three fires in the middle of the Moroccan desert, after the end of the world? Come on man, that’s not a coincidence that we’re right here now, right now, just as she’s about to die."
July 5 "Martin was looking at the work Blake had done so far, and casually commented that it was “good for a kid that ought to be wearing a helmet to school.”
July 7 "Dead bodies lose control of their buttholes and poop everywhere as I’ve said before, so the apartments had chunks of turds all over the place, as well as huge smears where it fell out of their pant legs and they stepped on it or fell in it. "

The Great Fire "The three men stopped suddenly, exchanged frightful looks with each other, and realized they were trapped in a burning building. "

July 25 "I got laid today. "
July 26 "I don’t think I’ve ever sworn that much. I absolutely ripped skulls off and made fresh assholes. I wanted to know how the fuck, what the fuck, who the fuck, and who I had to assfuck dry to make that never happen again. "
July 28 "Not one second after we were clear of the door, a gust of wind picked up, and tossed the tower to the side, toppling it right over the side of the building, and right onto poor fucking Chris. "

August 5 "Almost like humanity was taking a little bit of the world back from the dead. "
August 7 "What I’m really looking for is confidence, and attention to detail on doing things right, and staying serious. "
Becca "Becca looked up as the shattered arms of a woman scratched their way across the tinted glass of the van. The stump of her right limb had a splinter of bone exposed, and it made the tiniest, most disturbing screech as it slid across the smooth surface of the window. Becca’s spine chilled as the noise invaded her ears. "
August 9 "It is one thing to shoot a zombie in the face, and an entirely different affair when you step up to a person, look them in the face, dead in their white, nasty eyes, and smash the piss out of their skull."
August 11 "Hi, I'm Adrian, I wet the bed. No shame in admitting that"
August 13 "Fuck my life. Wow what a shit moment."
August 14 "I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday, and I credit spending some quality time on the potty. Once thoroughly purged I was much better off."
August 15 "Gilbert shook his head, showing that he wanted me to be more confident, “son, you’ve got all your T’s crossed on this."
August 16 "This really just happened. I can’t believe my sister, brother, nephew and sister in law are still alive. After all this fucking time, through all this fucking bullshit, they are alive. We are alive. My family. Most of it at least."
August 19 "Maybe this is the Last Bastion. Humanity’s last, best chance at weathering this storm."
August 21 "Happy birthday to me. Yup. It’s my birthday. "

September 21 "One whole year of writing this damn journal. Writing to you Mr. Journal "

September 24 "Still no word "
The Factory “Jason if you don’t let me go, or let me get hold of my people, no one here will sitting pretty for long. My people will come for us, and there will damn little pretty about that. Take me to my friend please. Think about what I said.” Mike stood and gave the huge man a stern look. Jason’s face showed considerable more worry."
