I'm liking the general plot idea but I notice you have a tendency to put commas where they don't make grammatical sense.

Side-effects Chapter 1, a warm bodies, isaac marion fanfic FanFiction

A/N: Hey this story is a work in progress about what happens after the movie. If you've read the book you'll recognize one of the scenes. It was too perfect not to include. I don't own anything.

As we drove through the deserted streets of the city I couldn't help but turn to stare at R and the vivid red blood flowing from various wounds on his body. Although I should've been horrified, I couldn't help the elation I felt at seeing the physical evidence of R's newfound humanity. The uneasiness began as we got closer to the stadiums' medical center and I realized this evidence of humanity was also a threat to R's new life. I wanted to protect him just as he protected me during that failed scavenge trip and the subsequent stay at the airport hive. I'm still not sure what made him want to keep me safe but it was my turn to keep him safe now.
Side-effects Chapter 3, a warm bodies, isaac marion fanfic FanFiction

A few hours later we had gathered a few spare soldiers and made the trek outside the wall. We encountered a few boneys that the soldiers quickly shot down. They seemed to be stragglers and I was glad we hadn't come across any groups of them like the ones that had chased us through the stadium. I had tried talking to Marcus before we left but it was hard to get him alone let alone figure out what I wanted to say. I didn't want him to make a big deal of my questions and he didn't seem like the type of guy to be romantic with his girl.

I hadn't regained any memories of my past life but I knew the basics. It wasn't like I had to relearn how to use the bathroom or use utensils; I just couldn't read very well and my body was stiff from disuse. I decided to just tell Marcus I was planning something special for Julie and needed his help to gather some supplies. I had hoped that by not making a big deal of it myself, Marcus wouldn't get too excited and blow everything.

The area the film store was in also had a lot of other stores around. Once we felt secure enough that more boneys weren't going to show up, everyone had the same idea I had about stopping at other stores. As we split off into groups, one of the soldiers made sure to tell everyone to stay on the same block. I saw Julie begin to turn towards me, presumably to grab my hand and cart me off to some store she knew, but with a stroke of luck, Nora intercepted her and pulled her off in the opposite direction. I breathed a sigh of relief and turned to Marcus.

"There are a few things, I wanted to get" I say. "Come on."

"Like what?" Marcus asked.

"I want to plan something special, for Julie."

"ohh, Loverboy wants to plan… a romantic evening?" Marcus teased.

"I like her" I simplify.

"Yeah," Marcus smiles, "we all know."

We continued along the block looking in storefronts to see what type of supplies they might have. Eventually we found a drugstore and went inside. Our first thought was to look for any stray corpses or boneys; thankfully we found none, then we began sifting through the abandoned products.

There wasn't much in the way of supplies we could use on our travels, most of the useful things were taken during the previous scavenges done by the living. Any food that was left here was spoiled and there wasn't even a box of Advil left. After walking down a few aisles the condom section caught my eye. Now that I was living I would probably need them right? Did my reproductive system begin working again? Or did my recently dead status cause me to be sterile? I ended up picking up a pack and nervously sliding it into my hoodie pocket.

Marcus and I kept looking in a few stores and just as I saw Julie and Nora exit a building down the block, Marcus pulled me into a small shop. I couldn't tell what kind of store it was since the windows were blacked out but as soon as Marcus turned on his flashlight I froze. He had found a porn store.

Magazines, videos, and various toys were strewn across the floor. He greedily picked up a magazine and started leafing through the pictures. I was shocked he had found this place but I realized it was exactly what I needed. I picked up a magazine and started looking through, albeit less zealously than Marcus.

"God I miss… the times, before this plague" Marcus comments, "I've been, remembering some times before. Like my teens. I was wild!"

"I still don't remember" I say.

"You have to really think about it. I had a lot of… free time, when I woke up in the hospital. You were, probably dis-tracted, by Juuuulllliiieee" he teases.

I smile and try to think. I remember waking up as a zombie. I was in the airport. Just kind of sprawled out on some chairs by the gate of my plane. Maybe I was on a trip somewhere. Maybe I had a ticket for that plane. I remember there was a small bag near me when I awoke but I didn't take it. I decided to tell Julie and look for that bag when we went back to the plane.

Marcus and I continued looking at the magazines and it actually did help with my 'muscle-memory' as I've taken to calling it. It seems my brain had some information stored and as I looked at the photos, things started looking a little familiar.

After awhile I began to get nervous that Julie and Nora would come in and find us. I got Marcus to leave and thankfully no one was out on the street. We walked to the other end of the block and saw a few of the soldiers standing at the doorway to a store. Julie and Nora exited just as we made it to the group. We decided we were done and started heading back to the refugee city. We took a few pictures of kids playing outside. Some couples and some of the newly exhumed. We collected the pictures in a canvas bag as they shot out of the camera.

On the way back to Julies' house we stopped at the thrift store, which was really more of a tent people went to for any discarded clothes they needed. Julie helped me find some more clothes that would fit me so I wouldn't be stuck wearing the same outfit Nora had brought me today. Once we returned to Julies' she began emptying a drawer and putting my new clothing in. Somewhere in the back of my mind this action struck me as being somewhat of a big deal. I wasn't sure why but I began to smile. Not even my stiff half smile, a real cheek splitting smile. I sat on her bed and watched her carve out a space in her life for me and felt happy. I realized even if I never remembered my past life, as long as I had Julie now, I wouldn't care. I still wanted to know, more just to solve a mystery than to achieve a feeling of completion.

I stood up and walked over to Julie at her dresser. She was facing away from me so I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her against me. Julie turned her head so that she was nuzzling my neck and I kissed her forehead.

"R, I wish we were still on the plane" Julie whispered.


"I just wish we didn't have so much to do. I feel like once my dad gets back and we start our 'exhumation tour' we're never going to just have time to be alone. The plane was the first time in forever I had an honestly carefree moment."

"Alone now" I say squeezing her slightly.

"We are, aren't we?" she says as she turns in my embrace to wrap her arms around my neck. "However will we entertain ourselves?"

I smile before kissing her.

As R kisses me I see a flash and hear a whirring sound to my left. For about a second I'm a preteen again thinking his kiss has made me see fireworks. Then I realize the sound was the antique camera I had left on my dresser. I pull away and see the photo that had popped out. It's still dark and hasn't developed yet but as I stare I see the outline of R and I entwined.

I smile up at R and say "You cheeseball."

He blushes, which I admit is one of the cutest things I've ever witnessed, and says "Make memories."

"You know, for a zombie you say the most perfectly cheeseball things" I giggle. He really is the sweetest guy I've ever known. Perry loved me but was never comfortable showing it.

"My heart beats for you" he says smirking at me while placing his left hand on his heart.

I start laughing outright and grab the camera from him. I take a picture of him before pushing him back onto the bed and snapping another. R pulls me down onto the bed with him and I take one of the both of us before he snatches the camera back. I laugh as he starts making faces at me to snap pictures of my wide smile. We fight over the camera for a while until we end up lying on the bed face to face out of breath. R snaps one more picture before putting the camera on the bed and kissing me.

We lose ourselves in this kiss and as R lets his hands roam over my body I feel a heat begin to pool in my stomach. My fingers dig into his shoulder as I try to pull him closer. His fingers slip under my shirt and he rubs small circles over my sides, sliding my top further and further up. Eventually I throw my leg over his waist and pull him into a sitting position. I pull my top off and unzip his hoodie. He shrugs it off and I begin on his shirt. As soon as it's off he pulls me into a deep kiss. I fumble with the button on his jeans then jump up to get my jeans off.

"Your pants" I say, "get them off."

He quickly complies and I tackle him back onto the bed. I kiss him until he's gasping for air and move down his jaw to his neck. I suck hard enough to leave a bruise and begin running my heads over his shoulders and down his stomach. We both still have our underwear on and I feel him start to fumble with the clasp on my bra. Just when I'm about to help him he gets it and I throw the fabric off.

I think he must've been a breast man because his skill must've been ingrained from his previous life. As I feel my panties begin to dampen I start grinding my pelvis to his. I can feel that he's hard already and I wonder if this need for each other will ever fade. I hope it doesn't.

A moan escapes his throat and he seems to recover his senses. He flips us so that he's pressing me into th
