Okay I did use the search function and if this topic has been raised, I failed to find it, so if this thread is a repeat, sorry.
So... anybody have dreams about the zombie apocalypse?
I've had two.
In this dream, the ZA is well underway. The zombies, however, are incredibly weak and very very slow to be much of a a threat, at least not in the same way that they are in the comic or TV show. They are more of an "ongoing health concern" or something like that.
Airports, for example are still operational and life is going on more or less normal, though citizens are urged to carry a stick or a blunt weapon of some sort and are encouraged to kill the zombies when they see them. They're pretty easy to kill because, again, these zombies are incredibly wimpy and kind of a joke, really.
I get on a plane and fly to California to see a Jazz musician who has the answer about why the dead are returning to life. I get there and we chat for a while. and he introduces me to this woman who also has answers. She brings me to the desert, which is apparently where it all started and she explains the origin if it.
Eventually I'm back at the airport, when I realize I left my android at the jazz musician's house. I'm about to call him when I suddenly realize that I don't even know his name. Nobody in this dream has a name. I find my android somehow and I I'm back on the plane at the dream's end.
In this dream, the "rules" are pretty much the same as the comic- but only to an extent. Anyone who dies will come back as a walker, and the zombies are dangerous yes, but somehow the situation is under control.
Somehow, the government has found a way to manage the situation- or at least we think so. I'm on a church van with a bunch of people I don't know, headed I don't know where. I get the sense that it's some kind of recreational trip (we're not fleeing for our lives). John Lithgow is driving the van. For some reason, we have to pull over and there on the side of the road are a bunch of walkers. And the walkers are mostly small children.
Strangely enough, none of my ZA dreams contain any characters from the TV show or the comic. Serious.
