A/N: Hey everyone :) This is my first chapter fic for South Park! I'm not too sure how long it'll be, but, seeing as I have a tendency to be very long winded, it should be at least over 10 chapters.

This is only the prologue, and yes, I know, it's VERY short! I tend to start small and work my way up, so don't be surprised if the first few chapters aren't too big either. They will get longer though! That I can promise you :P The first part of the prologue is the poem that inspired this story: And Death Shall Have No Dominion by Dylan Thomas. It's absolutely beautiful and haunting at the same time, and I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

Pairings: Style, Creek, Gregstophe, and Bunny.

Warnings: Character death (major and minor), blood, violence, gore, cursing, slash

Full Summary: It was just another normal day in the small mountain town of South Park, Colorado. That is, until the screams started. Now, Kyle, Stan, Kenny, and Cartman, along with a group of their classmates, must survive in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the walking dead. Friendships will be tested, friends and family will be lost, and, somehow, in a world gone mad, love will be found.

Disclaimer: I am not Trey Parker or Matt Stone, nor am I Dylan Thomas. Therefore, I do not own South Park or the poem And Death Shall Have No Dominion. Please do not sue me. I am broke...like Kenny :(

And Death Shall Have No Dominion

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't crack;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion.

- Dylan Thomas


Prologue

Tessa's legs ached and her lungs burned but she didn't slow her stride. The soft tap-tap-tap of her heels echoed throughout the empty hallway. Blood roared in her ears. Her heart hammered painfully in her chest. Thump…thump…thump…Blood dripped down her arm from the gash in her shoulder. Crimson droplets decorated the white tile floor. She was leaving a trail.

Slam!

The doors at the end of the hallway behind her shut with a resounding bang. A panicked scream tore from her throat.

The alarm was blaring, causing her ears to ring painfully. The red lights that the company had installed throughout the building to accompany the alarm were quickly giving Tessa a headache. She squinted frantically, trying to remember where to go in all the confusion caused by the sound and light. She glanced down at the watch on her wrist. Her heart skipped a beat. She had exactly three minutes until the building locked down and she would be trapped. Fuck.

One of her heels hit a crack in the floor and she stumbled, barely keeping herself from falling. Frantically, she kicked her shoes off and continued to sprint for the front of the building. She could hear the shrieks and moans behind her, but she didn't dare look back. 'Get to the doors, get to the doors, get to the doors,' her mind screamed. The numbers on her watch read 1:41. Less than two minutes.

The cold air stung her lungs, which were burning painfully now. Her heart hammered fiercely against her ribcage. She half expected it to burst out of her chest completely.

1:13

The sounds behind her grew louder and she risked a quick glance over her shoulder. Afterwards, she really wished she hadn't. Her pursuers were closing in. Terrified tears streamed down her cheeks as she rounded a corner and threw herself down another long hallway.

0:57

She had less than a minute before she would be trapped with them. 'Keep running Tessa Jean!' Her mind shrieked, 'Get to the doors!' They were around the corner now, still hot on her heels.

0:32

The front doors to the facility were in sight. She ran harder than she ever had in her life, her feet slapping harshly against the tile floor. The doors loomed in front of her. So close. Yet so far.

0:20

'I'm not gonna make it!' Tessa thought, the horror of the very idea taking her breath away. She could almost feel their breath on her neck.

0:13

Through the small windows at the top of the doors, she could see sunlight.

0:05

0:04

0:03

0:02

0:01

She hit the doors with the entire force of her body just as the locks clicked into place. "NO!" She shrieked, pulling frantically at the door handles, "NO!" The sounds behind her became unbearably loud. Tears streaming down her cheeks and terrified sobs wracking her body, she turned around to face them.

She felt pain. Then she knew no more.


A/N: So there's the prologue! Have I caught your interest yet? Probably not, haha. Don't worry,the boys will show up in chapter 1. Then we can get this party started :)

Hope you liked it (even though it's short...)! I'm already finished with chapter 1, so that should be posted tonight too.

Thanks for reading! :D
