Just a my fiction, but if in the final season (Ending of Clementine story) we got a vaccine ( I know that Robert Kirkman says that naver happen in TWD world).
So you got a vaccine in our equipment, this vaccine can help newborn children to be be uninfected forever (only newborns). Vaccine works this way: If pregnant woman will injecting vaccine to her stomach at the second month of pregnancy, then her child will be uninfected forever, if he dies he will not turn, but bite is still deadly.
You flying away from military base who was attacked a horde of walkers, you planning to flying by big cargo plane with Clementine, and with pregnant girl-pilot ( for example Lilly who has got romance with main character, and gets pregnancy from him few days ago; Now is the first month of pregnancy ). Plane are ready to take off , but the cargo compartment is full of walkers. Clem, you, and pilot are in cockpit, you have closed the door to cockpit, and walkers can't get you in here. The engines included, you sit on second pilot place, and pull back on the steering wheel. The plane begins to take off. A pregnant girl-pilot opened the cargo compartment, and a lot of walkers are falling out of the plane. Suddenly door to cockpit has busted, and some walkers were going inside. Clementine pulled out a gun (Colt M1911) and says:
-"Don't worry I'll take care of this"
- You: "What? Hell no. That's dangerous, you can't do that! Sit here!"
- Clementine: "Of course I can, I'm ten years old, remember?" *smiles*
*bang* *bang*
The plane quickly begins to gain in height, and is tilted upward at a sharp angle. The last walker to enter the cockpit grabs Clementine by the leg. In a frantic moment, she grabs the handle to the cockpit door in a desperate attempt to stay alive, but not before forever losing her precious baseball cap to the current.
-Clementine: Aaaaaah... Aaaaah. HELP! PLEASE!
- You: "HOLD ON CLEM!"
You shoot the walker from your rifle, and caught her by her hand, you hold her in two hands.
*sad music starts*
-Clementine *nearly crying*: "PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T LET ME GO!"
-You: "I hold you! Do you hear me?! I hold you! It's ok hun, it's ok, just hold on!"

Ampoule with vaccine are falling out of your pocket. *Time slows down* ( as like drugstore when you must choose Carley or Doug).

If you attempt to catch the ampoule with one hand, you are unable to hold onto Clementine, because you had got a bullet wound on your left shoulder one week ago. And so your precious symbol of innocence is lost forever.

If you continue to hold Clementine, the ampoule containing the vaccine falls out of the plane, effectively dooming the human race to a continuous cycle of infection.

You've got six seconds to make a choose *in slow motion* before the ampule wjth vaccine will falling out of you pocket.

If you will do nothing in this six seconds, Clem will noticing that ampule are falling out. Then she will looking to the vaccine, and saying "Goodbye", she will relaxing her hand, and falling down. You will catching ampule, then you will trying to grab Clem's hand, but it will too late.

What would you choose?

  • I love Clementine, but the damn cure of course.
  • What would Spock do?
  • This is truly tough, first thought is Humanity. Clem is my favorite, but its the CURE. But in reality, me playing the game or in real life... I would have no choice but to save Clem. I couldnt look into her eyes and drop her out of a plane. She is like my daughter, and I wouldnt drop her for anything. Selfish? Maybe, but when it comes down to it, family is the most important thing in the world, and Clem is my family.
  • Family may be important than any single other thing in the world...but is it more important than the ENTIRE world? Just think of all the people that will never exist because there is no vaccine... all the lives that could have been...
  • There are some selfish ass people on this board. Without that cure Clem will probably die anyway.
  • This is a very tough decision. Here, choosing between humanity and Clementine, I would chose humanity, as it's the most rational way to go. As much as I like Clementine, I can't screw the whole humanity just because of one life - these are my thoughts in that situation.

    But I also tried to look at this from a different perspective. If I take Clementine out of this and replace her with someone I really love, the situation becomes ten times harder, and my previous "rationalized" choice won't happen, because I know that I would not be able to sacrifice that person.

    I still stay with my decision to safe vaccine over Clementine, because again, despite that I like her, she's just a fictional character and thus I am able to rationally think through this situation without being overwhelmed with my emotions completely - no matter how well-written and played out the character is, it can't trick my mind completely.

    But if I were in the similar situation with that person mentioned earlier, I know I'd lose the vaccine.

    The aftermath... I would be in a great depression after saving the vaccine, and I would blame myself till the end of my life. But at the same time, if the vaccine actually works and saves the humanity... I would keep asking myself till the end: "You've killed a kid to safe millions. Was it worth it?.."
  • Mankind. Less humans means more walkers and more walkers means less safety for Clem.
