Author's Summary: "This is Doctor Zoe Heriot, senior technician aboard station seven. Making my final report. Experiment Zeta is a failure." Zoe's in the middle of sacrificing herself to save the earth from a hoard of the undead when she's rescued by a mysterious blonde girl with a homemade energy-weapon. Or, Zoe and Jenny team up to fight zombies.
Characters/Pairings: Zoe Heriot, Jenny, Zoe/Jenny
Recc'ed Because: Ummm... it's Zoe and Jenny fighting zombies? Do you need more? I love the character voices and the humor and descriptions and the frenetic pace and plot, and the fact that the author gives an entirely earnest and believable (within the DW universe) take on the base-under-siege trope with "artificially reanimated corpses". It's fun and hilarious and action-packed and as sweet as sweet can be when your first date is being rescued from a zombie horde.
Zoe had never seen the woman who stepped into her laboratory before, but somehow she was still the last person she expected. She was dressed in greeny-grey old-style fatigues, but she didn’t look like a soldier. She looked roughly Zoe’s age, her face sweet and girlish, her blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail. She was holding a clunky energy-gun that looked almost homemade. She wasn’t a member of the station security staff and her fatigues weren’t any military uniform Zoe recognised.
She was full of questions, like who are you and how did you get on board this station and did you make that energy-weapon out of scraps because if so that’s quite dangerous, but she was too flabbergasted to ask any of them, so the woman — girl, really — got in first. “Hi!” she said. “I picked up your distress signal. Thought you might need a hand.”
