Will You Marry Me? You, Not the Zombie

left 4 dead proposal

Let’s say you have a girlfriend who is as obsessed with reanimated human corpses as you are. The two of you often spend your evenings, side by side, attempting to survive the zombie apocalypse that is Left 4 Dead. You cover her back; she covers yours. You revive her when she becomes incapacitated; she returns the favor. You share first-aid kits and pain pills and help each other heal. Let’s say you love this person, even more than you love your extensively detailed zombie survival plan, and you want to propose. The perfect way to do it? By using the game that cemented your affections for each other of course.

Over the weekend mendicantbias00 proposed to his girlfriend using that exact method by drafting a detailed blog post about the graffiti that can be found on the walls of the buildings in Left 4 Dead, a survival horror first-person shooter game. After five screenshots of the hand-scrawled messages, the sixth picture (which you can see after the jump) included something very special. Right next to “Please wait, we’ll try to find help, WE’LL COME BACK!” and “RIP James- we love you” was a heart with the words Jessica, will you marry me? -AJ written inside. Just in case you were wondering what her answer was, it can be found in the very first comment on the article. Let’s just say they will be happily fighting dead bodies that have been brought back to life by supernatural forces for the rest of their lives. Congratulations to Jessica and AJ! And if there is ever a hostile zombie assault on civilization, save a shotty for me because I’m totally hauling ass to your place.
