Spoilers for Zombies, Run ahead  

Specifically, spoilers for Zombies, Run, season 2, mission 13. Highlight to read.

Dear Zombies, Run Writers,

Don’t you dare kill Archie. Don’t you dare rewire Archie. Don’t you dare do anything but return Archie to us completely and absolutely unharmed.

That thing you did with Chris McShell season 1 was bad enough, and I barely knew him.

I don’t know who sent you that memo the writers of all my favorite books seem to get, the one that says it’s all right to kill the characters I like best first and get to the others later, but that memo is no longer in force.

Really, it isn’t.

Just take my word for it, okay?

Me

That memo should be withdrawn across the board as far as I'm concerned!

Except where it applies to my books. In my books I still get to kill whomever I need to with impunity.

I see not conflict or inconsistency whatsoever here.

Well, yeah, of course. From the authorly point of view, we have important reasons for characters dying when they do. Why can't readers understand that? ;-D

Guess I'd better run mission 14 soon, huh?
