April Community Roundup

“why say “i love you” when you can break janine’s wrist, amirite?” by theartinhalfhearted

This roundup has been tricky to edit – since the New Year, the fandom has been bursting at the seams with new fanfic, art and other projects. It’s hard to only include a small smattering of the things you guys have done!

We’ve also been busy ourselves – the Spring Virtual Race is in full swing, we’re gearing up for Season 6, and, as always, we have a few other projects up our sleeves. Look out for more info on the new season next week!

In the meantime, have a read of “Margaret Atwood, The Prophet of Dystopia” in The New Yorker, where she gives us a special mention!


First up, we have the return of our favourite fan podcast, Podcast Detected. The latest offering is Episode 46: The Newbies Take the Comm Shack (and talk about Nadia). Hear them discuss the new Virtual Race, and their complicated feelings on Nadia throughout the seasons.

The Critical Twits Gaming Podcast dedicated Episode 68 – Zombies, Run! Get Fit, Play Games! to us. Tune in to listen them go over the technical ins and outs of ZR, as well as how we compare to other apps!


Spring Virtual Race

The race only began on Friday, and we already have medal pictures pouring in from Rescues Five! Here’s a few from Twitter to whet your appetite:


The Hum by abelrunner5 is set after the end of Season 3. This is a fantastic piece of writing, and all the stories in the series are worth a read!

For something completing different, sassamifrass has mixed the world of Zombies, Run! with…Pokémon! You’ve collected a pokéball is a lot of fun, and such a creative use of two different worlds.

A drabble is a story in exactly 100 words, and they’re a challenging exercise for any writer. Lindenharp’s Envy is a great example of how to do it well. An interesting take on Five’s mixed feelings after S4 M14 – with major spoilers! – and how Five might feel towards Veronica.

Until next time, stay safe out there!
