I am loving the new show The Walking Dead! Of course we all know that in the epic battle between unicorns and zombies, unicorns would triumph (our horns only require one trust through a zombie's brain to complete the kill) but it is fun to suspend my disbelief and pretend the show takes place in a world without unicorns.
It does make me wonder, though, where are the unicorns all hiding? Since the writers have not made this clear, I will "fanwank" a few explanations!
Where are the unicorns in The Walking Dead?
Fan Speculation by ShimmerShine Moondreams
Possibility #1: We have all looted the video stores and are engaged in a FRIENDS marathon.
Unicorns love Friends! In fact in the 90s I may have sported a dashing Rachel haircut in my mane...and had a tiny crush on Ross. While I normally don't encourage theft, all bets are off during the zombie apocalypse and I would definitely bend my personal morals to loot a few video stores for popcorn and Friends DVDs and start up a marathon.
Possibility #2: We are afraid of zombies.
Hahahahaha!! HAH!! ROFLMAO!!!!! Obviously this is not true.
Possibility #3: We are looking for sexier associates.
While many paranormal monsters are quite delicious -- for example, Edward the vampire from Twilight who sparkles (unicorns cannot resist sparkles and I am a dedicated Twihard myself!) or Clay the werewolf with the sexy southern drawl from Kelley Armstrong's novel Bitten (my werewolf friend Baron Snarls von Muchteeth only *wishes* he could be so dreamy!), alas, zombies are not attractive. Their faces are rotting and without the capacity for speech, they cannot recite love poetry. Therefore, we unicorns must seek lovers somewhere else.
Possibility #4: We are biding our time before the big rescue.
Sometimes we unicorns can feel under-appreciated. Perhaps, only if a good portion of the human population perishes first will humanity truly understand how dashing and capable we unicorns are when we ride out on our motorbikes in our leather jackets to rescue you from the Walking Dead.
