school run character survival poll!

so here's the thing: when i started working on school run, i had it in mind to keep with zombie flick tradition. that is, to start with a group (in this case, of grade-school kids) and then kill them off one by one in horrible and entertaining ways until the sun sets on (or a rescue chopper comes for, whatever) a lone survivor at the end.

and i specifically wanted the protagonists to be kids, because kids vs. zombies is something i haven't seen before.

but when i told people about my plans i'd get these shocked reactions--i couldn't possibly do that. how could i do that? apparently you just don't feed kids to bloodthirsty mutant hordes, not even fictional cartoon kids that don't exist.

and so i am putting things to a vote. if enough people vote to save the kids they get a reprieve. you won't get to vote for or against individual characters, just how many survive. the poll will be on the sidebar of this blog until the end of june. vote now people, the lives of these children are in your hands.

to be honest, wala pa kong "emotional connection" kung baga sa mga kids except dun sa bida :)

so ok lang sa akin kahit sino dun. make us "love" them first then maybe i'll change my mind.

pero kawawa naman, mga bata lang sila. hehehe...

kung emotionally attached na ang mambabasa sa karakters, mas matindi ang reaksyon pag pinatay ko na sila, nye he he >;D

dj said...

yun nga. hehe!

macoy said...

well that's just a *better* reason to kill them!

Miko said...

If I were you, I'd listen to my wife :p

But then again, I love debating with my significant other and doing things just to spite her a little bit :D

macoy said...

pinagpasyahan nalang naming hintayin ang resulta ng poll, hehe

Chris said...

kill them! Kill!


:)

p.s. Seriously.

Miko said...

Wow, amicable settlement :D

I noticed that "kill 'em all" is now tied with the traditionalists. Any way of cheating on this one with flying voters? :p

macoy said...

@chris: chris! ikaw ba si ginoong chris costello?

@miko: all's fair. but the poll's cookie-protected, so you may need some skillz to affect your desired outcome.

macoy! sobrang exciting ng school run :D gawa ka na lang ng 2 magkaibang endings tapos exclusive ang bawat isang version sa isang comic convention.

macoy said...

salamat apol! oo nga, napag-isipan ko rin yan. hm...

Miko said...

Variant covers? I like :D

By the way, I think I found a work around the cookie issues. I really want to save thoses kids; although that would be cheating and that's bad :p

macoy said...

would it have anything to do with internet cafes? or office pc's maybe?

Miko said...

Actually, any PC would do. Honestly, I don't have the "skillz" but you gave me an idea how to do it :p

Just scratch 2 votes less from "they're kids! you *can't* hurt them!"

Those are my bad...

Chris said...

@macoy Yep!

:)

macoy said...

@chris: okay, you get double voting power then. thanks for dropping by!

@miko: hehe wag ka na makonsyensya, poll lang yan.
