I've seen a bunch of fanfic threads around here lately, so I figured some of you might find this interesting. 'What if?' questions are a fun way to brainstorm and bounce ideas around, especially for those people who enjoy writing historical or fan-fiction.
Go ahead and answer some/all of the questions, or just ignore em' completely and describe how you think the scenario might play out. Extra creatively points and a free upvote for making a little scene/story based on one of the situations. I'll practice what I preach and write something of my own when I have the time. If you guys/gals enjoy these, I'll try to come up with some more.
Scenario #1: Nick accidentally shoots Clementine after she panics and tries to run away. Let's assume that the wound is serious, but not fatal or permanently disabling..
Food for thought: Would the cabin group decide Clementine is a lost cause or be more likely to take her in? How would the shooting change Clem's attitude toward the group? How would the incident affect Nick? Could Dr. Carlos patch her up? Or would he misdiagnose the gaping hole as a knife wound? How will all this affect the group's ability to evade Carver?
Scenario #2: Nick fires at Matthew, but misses.
Food for thought: How would Matthew react? Would he try to gun Nick down or keep a cool head and hold his fire? What about the rest of the group? Would he forgive them and provide food/shelter or tell them to hit the road? How might a change in shelter and location affect the confrontation with Carver and his group? Would Kenny manage to find Clementine? How?
