Only a few more days to enter the Freeform Challenge, and some new prizes have been added (a BrickArm for first place and an additional Hazmat figure for second place) Get those entries in, folks!
Zombie Cliché Lookout:
Putting a bullet to a person before they die is generally seen as merciful, but that doesn’t make it any easier to do, especially when the deceased was close. Zombie stories usually play this up, often as an opportunity for someone to assert leadership of the group by assuming a horrible but necessary duty. The willingness to take action and do the right thing when it would be just as easy to walk away is generally a sign that a character is a morally upstanding person with a strong sense of duty.
Of course it could also mean they’re a psychopath that just enjoys shooting people in the head, but it’s generally the morally upstanding thing.
