the anxiety chronicles part 1

So I've been reading a couple of fics that were written for zombiebang. I read pretty much everything that gets posted to AO3, so these were no exception.

...Except I'm not sure they're too conducive to my mental health. Ha. When I was a kid, I was utterly terrified of zombies. It started with Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island and continued with this motherfucker. Much as they scared me, I guess I was a little masochistic and I would just keep watching them. It got to the point where I would take hour long showers because I was convinced that zombies couldn't come near water. XD However, according to Scooby, that is untrue.

Anyway, it really sucks because A) I can't resist temptation and I will likely continue to torture myself with these fics and B) they're very well written! The first one actually had a sex scene that has already cemented itself as one of my favorites. But I always feel so lousy after reading them (though the one I just read now was softened by the Spongebob I have running in the back ground.) They leave me feeling just plain unnerved, which might just be a compliment to the writer, actually. They leave me feeling paranoid and edgy and kind of anxious which is really fucking weird. I've never read fanfic that got me this worked up.

...Well, worked up in the bad way. ;D
