Postbox Fairy

Male friendship & zombies

I started off writing what I thought was going to be an original ficlet, inspired by the refrain "Dry your eyes, mate" from this song I heard playing on the radio in the corner shop this afternoon. Halfway through the third paragraph, I realised I was writing Shaun of the Dead fanfic. I've only seen the film once, and that was when it was in the cinema several months ago, so this may not tie in exactly with what happens on screen. It's the kind of (lazy) atmosphere piece that won't make very much sense if you haven't seen the film. It's also (hopefully) very meepy.
