Alrighty, I've posted the first bit of my part of the tale in the story thread.
For a brief explanation of the characters, here goes.
Hometown: Pensacola, FL
Occupation: Wild West gunfight re-enactor, trick shot with revolvers
Former US Army veteran, honorably discharged in 1998.
Gabe is a rational, rough-around-the-edges man. Never married due to his traveling lifestyle. He became proficient at the use of the Smith and Wesson
Model 29 (AKA Dirty Harry gun), so much so that he has two of them holstered on his chest in a style similar to what Wes Hardin used.
His only concern currently is keeping himself and his niece, Leslie Ridge, alive... or, something like that. You see, Leslie..
Hometown: Tampa, FL
Leslie is Gabe's niece. She is also a sentient zombie. Through an amalgamation of an oxygen tank, antibiotics, vitamans, and patchwork surgery,
Leslie is still very much alive, albiet dead. She still has the hunger, and if she doesn't eat every few days she becomes violent and violently ill,
and only flesh will satsify her needs. Both Gabe and her know she is an abomination, but they are trying to stay alive and keep her hidden until a
possible cure can be developed.
