Check out "Don't Die" by AliceDays.
I'll start with a small backstory that ends in kind redemption. A while back, there was some drama unintentionally caused by me (I was wrongfully accused of most of it, even though I was responsible for only part of it) when I was at a bad point in my life a long time ago. At times, I was in a very dark place, but with the help of my close friends, I was able to overcome my demons, and become a good person again. And for that, I will always be grateful to them. I can say in all honesty that I acted like a complete asshole at times. I just didn't understand that the world didn't always have to be fair to me, and I wrongfully took it out on others that I cared about on here. There were a lot of times where I thought I changed, but I hadn't. It wasn't until I was presented with multiple situations much later on that I realized that I had actually (and finally) changed. I handled those new situations very well and very maturely. And it's because of that that I still have many of the great friendships that I do; both here and offline.
I helped out many people in their lives, and even saved one from ending via suicide. Not for redemption, but because there is goodness in my heart, and who I was before is dead. As for the enemies of the past, they were forgiven, and I am sorry to all of them. I don't expect forgiveness from those that I hurt in the past, and I don't blame them for it. I harbor no bad blood towards them, and I wish them the best of luck in their futures.
Moving on, I've been on this site for over five years now, and I hope it starts to grow again. This site's been pretty inactive in terms of story and forum posts, so I'm hoping after I leave at some point that it'll pick back up again. I remember when it was only thirty or so users and has now expanded to probably thousands of users (the "Members" sections only goes to 1000 for some reason), so it's been a really great thing to see this site grow, and I've been proud of the writing that I've checked out from these fanfiction writers. Fanfiction is all about having fun writing it, and if you have fun writing it, quality shouldn't really be a big concern, unless you really enjoy entertaining readers as much as possible. I usually take mine seriously for that reason, as well as honing my writing skills, which were very bad a few years ago, as you can see in my "Survival Is Not An Option" series down below. But with that said, I think a lot of these kids, adults, etc., do have writing talent that could lead to great careers someday; they just have to hone their skills first, and a really great way to do that is by putting as much effort as they can into anything they write, whether it be fanfiction or something else. And with fanfiction, there's no money down the drain if you fail, so that's a huge positive right there if you wanna hone your skills by writing fanfiction.
As a side note, I'm no longer participating in the forums, and once my Governor story is done with, I'm leaving. I like helping people with technical issues with this site, or giving them writing advice, but I don't feel comfortable staying on this site, aside from two personal reasons that are keeping me here. I still help a few people on here once in a while via messaging or social media they've me added to, but that's all I'm gonna do to help on here, besides finishing my Governor story, until the day I leave. All I ask is that people leave me alone when it comes to their forum posts. I was an immature, stupid kid when I called people out in those forums, and doing that was very pathetic and wrong of me to do, so you shouldn't do it either. But if you have a problem with me, just message me, so we can talk about it like adults.

RIP DANIEL KYRE:
Amazing, talented, and a part of Cyndago that will forever live on in the hearts of Ryan Magee. Matt Wattson, Mark Fischbach (a.k.a Markiplier) and, last but not least, the fans of Cyndago and those who loved and respected Daniel for the person he was and the life he lived. May he rest in peace, knowing his friends are okay and still doing what they love to do, because that is what he would want for them above all else <3

Surviving in the apocalypse is impossible. This story is about a new band of survivors trying to survive in a world that does not welcome them. Some nods to the tv series and video game (not Survival Instinct) will be made every now and then.
