Reviews for How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
Dog pls chapter 2 . 8/20/2014
Teehee. owo Duff Obama. Now that's a silly-sounding name.
*luckily was able to dodge just in time before I was impaled by a giant multicolor pencil* I-I mean, it is silly, but it's really memorable too! It's memorable in a fond way, and that's just great! OwO It's a rather unique name for a girl, but that's what makes it so fond! You be like, "Hey, Duff!" OuO

Ahaha! It's really interesting, seeing a comedic zombie apocalypse! I mean, it is ultimately Duff and her monologues that makes it so interesting and funny! But again, that just makes the concealed darkness underneath much more denser. (OwO) Kinda like a premonition. Duff may be okay now, but deep inside, she must be breaking down more than anyone else. Still, she forges onward nevertheless, holding on to whatever hope she can still hold on to.

Duff vs. Cat. Winner Cat. Duff vs. Doghouse. Winner Doghouse. Come on, Duffy! Step up your game-y! Ahaha! I'm sure she'll be fine though!
I, personally, would try a Kamehameha at least once too. OwO I love all the pop culture references you make! Like, they're common and easy to understand and they're just definitely sure to sprout up a smile or three in the readers faces! Now, now! All I'm asking of you is to make sure Bieber gets the most horrific death. *w* (evil grin)

Speaking of deaths though, I wonder how that would get handled in the story. . . Hmmnh. A really interesting thing that I'm looking forward to in the future! I'm sure you'll be able to send violent shocks of electricity to our hearts with ease, Lolitroy-san! OwO

So now we have Kerberos, the bearded woman (still having a hard time imagining what she'd be really like); Butch, the tower of chocolate that's not really chocolate; and April, the grim peeper (I mean reaper). They say that the unlikeliest combis also turn out to be the best! I'm so looking forward to seeing how these three end up affecting Duff, and vice versa! Also, the lots of questions I have in mind that need answering! Why does Kerberos have a beard? Does she have three heads? Why is Butch so scary? Is he actually a woman? Why is April such an adorable bastard? Is she actually the grim reaper (*gasp* potential plot twist)?
As the way things are now, and as Duff feels it to be, she would be "the most normal" or perhaps even "the only normal" person left. What she doesn't realize though is that everybody else must be, deep inside, as scared and as scarred as she is. Hiding behind a forced smile and cheerfulness, just so that they would be able to keep their sanity.
Or maybe I'm just overthinking things, teehee. *w*

Nevertheless, this is just a really great read! Each chapter is short yet exciting, and the pacing just feels really comfy! I remember reading the six chapters out in one sitting, and I didn't even realize how much time was passing since it was just so fun! Again, thank you, Lolitroy-san, for such an awesome work! I'll be back with my reviews of the next chapters soon!

Mmmngh *w*
Hmmnghghngh w
HHNNNGH*coughcough* Alright, sorry for the weird noises, Lolitroy-san. OuO
It's just. . . this is awesome. w

First thing's first. With a personal matter of tastes, I can say with full authority that this type of writing is definitely my most favorite. (OwO) You know, just this really, whimsical kind of narration that's just so pleasing and easy to take in! It's like, being on the boarder of breaking the fourth wall. Well, actually, it does break that wall a couple of times subtlety, but through that, there's just this really, really close connection established between the readers and the story/writer from the very beginning. And I just adore that! :3 Some writers would get all nitpicky with the technical aspect of writing, but I'm all in for this kind of writing! It's just, you know! I can feel that the writer, the creater, you, Lolitroy-san, is just having fun as you write it, and that's really the greatest thing about it!

At this point that I'm writing this review, I've already read until the latest chapter which is Chapter 6, so I already know the name of the main character, but for now, I just really like how you held back the character's name, and just focused on letting the readers immerse on who she was from the wonderful first-person narration. It's this really fun and whimsical narration that just for me, drives along and introduces this character which is just really fun to read into! I personally really like her personality! You know, like this person who doesn't care of what society dictates of her, and instead, tries her best to remain to be who the person she really is. Really great stuff. OuO

Ahaha! Gosh, you really got me with the "Justin Bieber" scene. OuO You go me gooood. I'm sure everyone was just like "is it here?!" when she turned around to look at the screams, so that was just a really golden scene. It made my day, to make things short. :3 The narration is just great!

So then all darkness dripped down as the main character found herself home, anticipating the surprise for her birthday. Then, her sister and mother, who looked like zombies, attacked her. Now this is where it got really good. Even me, as a reader, felt caught off-guard when things started going down. I mean, considering the title and the description, you'd already gather that there'd be zombies and an apocalypse, but from the main character's point of view, you can clearly see and feel as well, how everything seemed to be just a dream. . . a nightmare. During everything that happened when she got home, seeing the zombies of her sister and mother. . .
Nothing of it was sinking into her.
She wasn't believing what she was seeing.
She didn't understand.
She was completely. . . lost.
I could feel that and that's just this strong emotion that is hidden really well underneath the whimsical narration. And yet, while it is hidden behind a layer of whim, it's there. It's plain to see and feel.
It's my preference to have goofy-type of stories with serious denouements. For this, it's the narration and the main character's point of view. Kinda like Gintama. It's really goofy and stupid at times, but when things get serious, it really plucks into the heartstrings. I love works like that that can just blend comedy and seriousness and drama in such a wonderful mix. This, for me, is one of those stories.
Really funny and stress-relieving and enjoyable to read, but with deep hidden tones that hit on you hard when you least expect it.

That being said, I have already been submerged into this story from the very first chapter, and this is a first chapter among first chapters. I have been positively, absolutely enchanted! :3 Please take me along for the ride! I just know that this would be so good! I can't wait to see how it would develop and reach the perfect ending!
For your writing skills, I can already say that they are superior than of the usual level! Not counting the technicalities even, since the most important thing for me in terms of writing is the sense of fun and enjoyment and happiness that just sears through the words as one reads it, and as the author creates it. This makes it a great read, through and through. OuO

Lastly, I loved the way you ended it. The whole small notes in the notepad is such an appealing and awesome theme for me. That ending was just. . . perfect, for this chapter. GREAT. dOwOb
Also, I wonder how big that pencil is? Like, as big as a sword? w If that's the case, the she really will be enjoying herself with that— *gets smashed in the head with it* S-Sorry ;w;
Although, I'd love a giant pencil too. OuO

Thank you for such a wonderful first chapter, Lolitroy-san! I'll be sure to read on and on and on! Thank you for your hard work! OwO

So, more Zombie instantly. Yah, not to sure what else to say, had a few good laughs?

I noticed that your humor is...very loud, which makes sense for a story called how to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, though there are a lot of references...which is fine, though most of the time I have no idea what's going on, which might be the entire point of the story.
sugar honey iced tea chapter 1 . 8/20/2014
Well, this isn't the most conventional way to start a zombie apocalypse. However, after reading this, it does give me vibes infused with Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead. The former, since Duff seems to be writing down tips on how to survive in a sense, and the aforementioned with the slight hints of crude humour such as the appearance of the oh-so wonderful Playboy magazine.

Good choice, Loli.

"Then it came."
Was that sentence meant to have some subtle irony after the phrase, "don't even dare get dirty thoughts about it."
I have a feeling that this ain't really a story to take seriously, but instead it's simply all about enjoying the antics of Duff.

Gonna look forward to this ride of tomfoolery.
Darth Zannacross chapter 3 . 8/20/2014
Well, this is a even more incoherent a group then many of the comic Zombie movies like Shawn of the dead. Well, nice Zelda and Star Wars nods, we will see how the madness unfolds.
Darth Zannacross chapter 2 . 8/20/2014
Hey now, Zombie Apocalypse is no reason to be mean to cats! I must say she did taking losing her family well, though she might be in denial. Well, random stuff, random Obama knock off, we will see just how big a mess this is turning in to.
Darth Zannacross chapter 1 . 8/19/2014
Well, this story does seem to have a lot of love, time to see why. Well, not the more normal start to a zombie apocalypse. So, nice nods to Resident Evil and others, seems like we are in for a comical ride here.
dmasterxd chapter 2 . 8/19/2014
Ha still freaking hilarious! Love the part with Kamehameha. Lady with a beard, female reaper, stoic big guy. Yep this is definitely a comedy masterpiece. And all of these characters and their names, just priceless. Awesome job once again!
dmasterxd chapter 1 . 8/19/2014
Ha! this was freaking hilarious. From the peeing on elevators to the porno magazine to the bieber to the giant pencil. Duff is my kind of narrator. A first person snarker. I also like how instead of going for the usual darkness of these kinds of stories, you went for humor. Awesome job!

You managed to keep your grammar consistent throughout, despite it being humor. Though I'm not actually sure how I go about review this, and giving it a far judging.
Whisperedthing chapter 1 . 7/15/2014
I'm not a huge fan of zombie stories. Or...zombie anything. I find the concept to be a little dumb, but this one, despite some randomness, seems to hold my interest well enough.

The second sentence should be revised to say "What do you call a world where you can do anything?" and the line about the house being full for once is a little hard to understand. It's just worded weird. Maybe something like "And for once, my always empty house, would be full,"

The "Justin Bieber" comment was random and maybe a little bit childish, but I can get past that and keep reading.

I liked the sentimental moment with the mom's writing and them writing thank you back. It was cute and I'm a bit of a sap. I'm interested to see where this story goes and hopefully find time to keep on reading! :D
Marguerite Grimmett chapter 1 . 7/3/2014
Nice story :P I was interested from the first sentence. Very amusing, too. :) (OH MY GAHHHHHHD 350 REVIEWS WHAAAA)
literary.double chapter 1 . 7/2/2014
HAH! This was clever and made me laugh. I liked the line about the sound people make when reading Twilight. Also, Justin Bieber. Super cute!
Veronica Fay chapter 1 . 6/26/2014
So this was really interesting! I enjoyed the MC's voice! It was different and flows well for the story. Two things about the zombies, would they all ready be grey? And I found it a little strange that she saw them as ITs already instead of her mom and sister. The ending was great :)
