jactrades: Kirk and McCoy's profiles (ST - Kirk/McCoy)
Title: Riverside, Iowa
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jactrades
Written for: [livejournal.com profile] space_wrapped 2011
Fandom: Star Trek AOS
Characters/Pairing: Kirk/McCoy, Sulu-POV
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for language & zombies
Wordcount: ~2,800
Summary: Sulu didn't think it was that big a deal, volunteering to jump deep into zombie territory. McCoy was a bit more vocal on the whole "parachuting in" part.
Notes: Zombie AU/fusion with the novel World War Z. If you haven't read the book, the only thing to note is that it's structured as a series of short interviews commissioned by the U.N. after humanity's hard-won victory in WWZ. I strayed pretty far from the prompt, and, um, the holiday spirit, but there are zombies in December and McCoy gets a pretty awesome present at the end.

   Riverside, Iowa, USA

As I park my car on the west side of the town square I’m struck by the sense of prosperity that Riverside emanates. Beds of flowers line the walkway as I cross the green, narrowly avoiding a trio of children splashing each other by the center fountain. The famous series of walls guarding the city center are visible, of course, and the standard fail-safes – many of which were invented within these very walls – can be found tucked unobtrusively into corners, but the overall feeling is one of pre-war normalcy. I am not sure what I expected from Riverside, the largest of the civilian-run blue zones to survive east of the Rockies, but this isn’t it. A Ms. Rand meets me as I enter the unassuming building that serves as the town’s city hall. She escorts me politely to a small conference room where I meet Hikaru Sulu. )
