Dead Weight is a zombie drama story written by Pastelhaxe. After the dead rise and begin feasting on the living, survivors of the cataclysmic disease must band together to survive, or else humanity will be wiped from the face of the earth.


Dead Weight takes place two months into the world crumbling due to a virus that spread and caused humans to reanimate after death into flesh eating monsters. Robbie and Jessica are twin siblings and have stuck together throughout the end of the world and vow to protect eachother no matter what the cost. So what happens when they're thrown into further unknowns after their camp is destroyed and they're seperated from their friends and all that they knew after humanity fell?
