Reviews for How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

I do like Duff figured out how they all met and the conversation that lead to it, it was slightly more grounded in terms of humor. Despite the scene before it being somewhat crazy before.

This, chapter is once again weird to describe, it once again didn't feel like a Zombie fic, mostly because Zombies were barely in it until near the end of it. They were barely mentioned at all, as for the characters they are interesting, but so far they seem to be characters that do random things based on their arch-type.

Of course I'm looking way too much into this,

Welp, more antics with Duff.

Now that we've got the additional characters of April, Kerberos and Butch, I'd love to see where this group goes now. More struggles along the way? Let us see.
At this point in time, I'm not really sensing a deep sadness due to the loss of Duff's family. But then again the ambience is typically light-hearted so it makes sense, lol. Then again, she did state her urge to cry in 'the corner of woe'. I guess she seems to have the pragmatic mindset already despite her recent loss. Go figure.

Gotta read more to see where this is going :)

Well, this headed in a even more random direction. Some pant less horror I guess. Well, we will see how much use Lucas is.

Well Duff is just going through one bad thing after another, Well, at least she does not have to fight zombies naked.

Did this chapter dare to try and be serious after a while? Holy crap, wasn't expecting that!

And I guess I was off by 1 chapter with the new character appearing. My moral compass gives me an obligation to hope that Kerberos and Butch are okay. April actually seems normal in this chapter. Overwhelming fear of being torn apart and eaten by zombies is the most natural response.

What do you got against Linking Park? And I just so happen to like Please Don't Stop the Music, even if almost all the rest of her songs make me want to jab giant pencils into my ears!

Still having a hard time caring about any of the characters, but I hope they all survive. It may be bad, but I actually think April is the closes to being my favorite character, and I still want Duff to strangle her.

I was right. The new character, Burning Building, was awesome.

After a while, i don't know why I just pictured the Left 4 Dead 2 first level as the burning building.

Kind of sucks they all just left her, but then again, this ragtag group of idiots is probably more than likely to get each other killed than protect each other anymore. I honestly am surprised they have't met any other survivors yet. And I may be wrong, but this is all still happening on Duff's birthday right?

I don't know what to say about this chapter actually. It's hilarious that it seems like you foresaw how the reader would react at the beginning of every chapter since it's like you've answered my questions every time.

Though I can feel for Duff not wanting to be a cook since she was tricked into it, I still find it a bit hard to care for any of the characters at all, including Duff herself. Then again, maybe I'm thinking too hard. Told you I'm not very privy to this humor thing.

Anyway, it seems like the group can start a new chapter in this survival horror genre. I'm thinking at least one new character is going to pop up next chapter?
Vio the Wandering Lover chapter 3 . 8/21/2014
I actually mostly understood this chapter!

I did like the cooking jokes in this one. And I guess I was right to be wary of the Tri-force. I do believe some revenge is in order my good Duff girl.

Now that Duff is going commando, she needs to really go 'commando'. Just got to let her imagine all the zombies are that damn cat and Justin Bieber and I bet she could fight her way out of any situation.

Disappointed you let Bieber live over the sister. T-T

This chapter honestly confused me for the most part. I don't know whether it was because I was looking for a little serious direction or not within the comedy, but I had to reread certain parts to understand what was happening. I guess Duff's comedic dramatization of the situation sometimes makes it hard to know exactly what's happening at a given moment.

Also, it's amazing she simply walked out of the city to the suburbs without the zombies noticing her at all.

I'm a little thrown for a loop with the three characters you introduced. I don't know how to feel about them. Seriously, how did they already start a zombie killing group meant to save the world when the zombie apocalypse only started, what, an hour ago?
Vio the Wandering Lover chapter 1 . 8/21/2014
Please tell me Bieber gets eaten in the next chapter.

Other than that, I like for the most part. I'm a little sad her mother and sis are gone right off the bat. I would have liked to see her interact with her sister some more. But maybe you plan on having some semi-serious moments with them in flashbacks or something? Something to make her actually feel the weight of her family being gone, and her being the one to put them down?

I'm not sure if you're going for the comedy with burst of serious or the comedy with a serious moment that the comedy will ruin anyway route, but I'll be happy to find out.

I don't really have an opinion on Duff just yet.

Justin Bieber needs to become a recurring character *w* You have no idea how tempted I am to draw him running with a flamethrower burning zombies (and have you review my whole story because of that ;3).

Duff would normally come off as an insufferably stuck up teen character. Typically. Looking at just how fundamentally wrong the world around her is, I can't help but feel that she's completely justified in her snarky, wise-ass teenage attitude :D It must take a lot to stay sane in a world where Justin Bieber stalks the streets without a leash, a muzzle or a straight jacket, and your parents tell you to fuck off if you want a car on a giant poster. Seriously, kudos to her for remaining such a healthy, reasonable young lady :) The zombie apocalypse must be such a welcome change. It seems that unlike her everyday life, it makes some sense X3

.. why never kill a zombie with a giant pencil? It seems that it worked w b
Dog pls chapter 6 . 8/21/2014
So much great lines in this chapter! *w*
"MY BUTT!"
"May! June! July! August!"
"By the way, Any Stupid Mistake You Might Come Up With AND NO SONGS, you've got nice legs."
But of course, my favorite must be, "Can't a girl touch the glory of her body in peace?" Ahahaha! Epic one-liners for the win! OwO

So, Deus-ex Machina! We meet once again! It certainly is plenty early in the story, but I'm sure that it's not the last that there's to come! That being said, there's just so much to wonder about and to look forward to! Like, how did zombie apocalypse star and where? Is it everywhere or is it just in one secluded place? Where does Duff live, in the first place? Is surviving really worth it? Where is Duff headed, really? So much delectable wondering and questions, which makes the story much more exciting!

Lucas! Resident snotty pretty boy, reporting for duty! He is annoying, but his character is meant to be annoying, and yet, he still very much likable and you don't want to see anything bad happen to him! And with that being said, he's a good character! OwO I wonder if he's the long-awaited prospective love interest for Duffy? I mean, he's not exactly the sexy man she was hoping for (on second thought, we can't be sure of that until he takes off his clothes), but you know, if he can keep Duffy being alive and find her purpose in this dying world, then I'm for him! OuO
Although, "baby-faced boy" kind of left a question for me. How old is he? Maybe I looked past him and he's just like, 10 years old or something. Ah well, we'll see more of him on the chapters to come!

Hmmnh. Hmmn. Butch and Kerberos. April said that she "lost" them. But. . . is that really the case? Or. . . did they. . . abandon her? I don't mean to think ill of them, but you know. Nobody really has established their full trustworthiness, and histories remain shrouded in fog. Hmmnh. Conspiracy tingles down my spine. *w* The story's getting spicier and spicier, and I really like that!
Giant pencil powers, activate!

Alright! It's been a fantastic ride so far, Lolitroy-san! I told you that I read all 6 currently published chapters in one sitting, and every second and word of it was fun and worth it! I've of course, favorited and followed, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next chapter! I'll devour this story until the very end! OuO Apparently, I've heard that this is a rewrite and had a lot more chapters prior, so I'm really excited! OwO But please take your time, but don't forget that you've now earned a new, lifetime-fan! :3

Thank you for your hard work! Reading your story made me really happy! Thank you! uwu
Dog pls chapter 5 . 8/21/2014
AHAHAHA! Gawd, I loved how this chapter opened! xD
I mean, I am sort of ashamed of myself for getting that reference instantly, but it's just. . . genius! PURE GENIUS! I salute you, Lolitroy-san! I would throw you buckets of your favorite food with what you did! x3 Really awesome!

Gosh, Butch is really mad. Like, in a not-usual-kinda way. ouo And I kinda felt that Kerberos is having issues about being a bearded woman. owo April is a bit too much of an airhead though. I hope she'll be alright.
It was you know, really absurd and yet really shocking as well that Duff came to the point that she ran out of the bathroom in rage, naked. Well, considering the circumstances I wouldn't blame her, but through this, you could plainly see how much everything recently has been taking such a heavy toll on Duff's soul.
Not to be weird or anything, but I'd like to see the point where Duff just breaks down and cries like a baby. She's doing so well until this point (well, relatively better than she should), so I know that that all the stress and darkness is just building up on her. She will snap eventually, and I kind of want to see that. And I also want to see who'd be there for her when all hope seems to be lost.
This is a really enjoyable story. It's minimalist in nature, so it leaves a lot to us readers to interpret things and see beyond what has been said. That being said, I really do enjoy reading this so much. :3

Hmmnh. I'm thinking. Who really set the hotel on fire, and for what reason? If it was just April being stupid, April would be crying and apologizing for it. And I don't think even she would be dumb enough to do something like that. Or. . . is there something else that we don't know yet? I know there must be. I feel that someone isn't to be trusted completely. . . But most importantly. . .
You DO NOT interrupt Duff's happy time. OuO

Ahaha! I really like the choices thing you do, Lolitroy-san! It's a great, golden running gag that just never gets old, not to mention the infinite possible variations and situations it could be used in! OwO Really great comedy stuff! Also, I want a bottle of dragon shampoo, please! OuO

Again, a great chapter, with the action and tension picking up a nice notch! OuO Great job, Lolitroy-san! :3
Dog pls chapter 4 . 8/21/2014
I must just simply commend your titling skills, Lolitroy-san! OwO If anything, personally, I find that giving the story and it's individual chapters to be one of my favorite parts of writing a story! And as such, I tend to have this taste for great chapter and story names! And of course, as I've said, "How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse" is just a great title! You know, if you were in a bookstore kinda thing, and you saw this book, you'd get interested right away from it's title, especially more so if you're into zombies! I have a dear friend who loves zombies, so perhaps I could get her to read this! OuO But even if you weren't interested in zombies, you'd still get interested anyways, and you'll wonder, "is this like a legit guide or something"? Then, by actually trying to read it, you find out that it's an awesome story and it'll be just like you won the lottery! OuO Ehehe!

The chapter titles too, are great! I love the themed numbering, "Braineating"! It's just so cool! I really like themed chapter numbering! Like, to deviate from the usual "Chapter" or "Part", I try to think up of many different themes and choose one for each of my stories! OwO This particular chapter, "I, Zombie", is just a masterful title, if I do say so myself! :3 Like, it would probably not be just me who thought that someone would get turned into a zombie, and that just creates some delicious anticipation and excitement! Really good stuff, Lolitroy-san! I really like the blend of crack comedy and subtle seriousness! The seriousness gets amplified since it's subtle, and yet it really strikes one such impact when it's realized! :3

Duff. Kinda like a dog name. If I ever do get a dog, I'll definitely name her Duff, heehee. *barely dodges from being severed in half by giant multicolored pencil* Hmph! Too slow, Duff! You'll never catch me! *gets stabbed by giant pencil in the eye* WAHHHHHHH!

*now wearing an eyepatch*
April "Au, Au"-ing was so adorable ahahah! If anything else, April is the one who feels as if she doesn't belong with Kerberos and Butch. I don't know why I feel that way, maybe it's because she's a bit too naive at times? And Butch. . . I kinda don't trust Butch as of the moment. It's already given that he's weird since he eats furniture, but he feels. . . dangerous. Not on a racist view either. He just seems. . . off. Kerberos I can handle, since it's not every day you see a bearded woman and I'd certainly would like to see one. Hmmnh. I do wonder. It's still early into the story, but I hope nobody does some backstabbing. April isn't of course clear cut from suspicion either.
If anything else, I'd want to see Duff be able to you know, achieve a peace of mind and be safe, if it's possible with what's happening. She's a pretty relatable character, if you think about it. :3 Definitely a great protagonist. I'd really want to see what her fate would be. uwu

Overall, this is a great chapter! Just like the rest, it makes you just really want to read on! Thank you, Lolitroy-san, as always! :3
