The Walking Dead: No Safety is over.
EDIT: So I've been thinking a lot these past months, and I've had a lot of maturing to do as a person and as a writer, and where my priorities lie have changed. So for all 0 of you who even remember this story and care enough about the future of it, I'm announcing that No Safety is officially scrapped. I apologize greatly and I obviously never wanted it to end because I loved writing it and interacting with you guys, but there's a lot of reasons this series cannot continue.
1 - I've just got no interest in The Walking Dead anymore. I can't lie to myself or other people and act like this is a property I so heavily care about because the fact is, The Walking Dead doesn't interest me like it used to. This is really unfortunate but true.
2 - If I were to continue writing it from here on, it'd be impossible. I've improved so much in my writing ability and text layouts that previous chapters would seem absolutely confusing. Not to mention the layout I left on is impossible to continue on as a basis. The story feel strange and disjointed as is and I would go back and retcon things and fix things, but then it'd be my story. All I want is for this to be a community effort for a bunch of guys who love TWD and want to have fun with it. Which brings me to my next point.
3 - I have been unfair to you guys. I take control of the story to make my own layout too often, there's hardly any audience input or choices, I took your guys' amazing and interesting characters and I wrote my own personalities for them and didn't realistically follow what you designed them like. I put far too much emphasis on the character of Jake and turned him into a gary-stu type, and honestly he was a self insert. I'm not proud of this fact. If I could do it all again I would. And I think I will.
4 - Despite all this, I still have a very strong interest in an Interactive Story format, and writing something along with the lovely, amazing people on these forums. So I of course want to continue the format and work on a new project. And if you would like to follow me in such a thing then I'd be absolutely delighted to make something with your wonderful characters again.
You fellas are the biggest reason I've improved in writing so much and why I work the way I do now. You're all super cool and great and even if you guys have moved on from this forever and will never read this I want to have it stated on the damn record. And if you guys are interested in continuing the story yourselves, you can absolutely do that and I'd love to actively read the great ideas you all have. If I start work on a new interactive story then I'll link it here for anyone who's interested. It's been a good run guys, but I think we all should stop pretending there will be a point in which this series will be as active as it used to be. So yea, that's about it. I'm not real broken up about moving on but I'm sure the anxiety will hit me in the twilight hours haha. So anyway, I'll see you guys around.

Post what you want your characters to say, and make a group descision
[Send Someone of your Choice to Help David] [Leave Woman Behind] [Let David Go Alone]
aw crap sorry. hang on
Send Wilson to help David if he is with the group and if he isnt then Jack
okay, but the woman is not bitten, you need to make a choice, sorry, im being nitpicky here
Run to helf her witout saying something
James quickly runs over to a vantage point. If the woman is bitten, he does nothing. If she's not, he kills most or all of the walkers near her, inviting her in. He does this while David and Wilson help her.
it's jake, and everyone is present.
who runs to help her? sorry i just need details

We should probably have a vote section for each major choice.
I vote the Flash; James.
