World War Z!Richonne AU
Life for former United Nations investigator Michonne Philippe seemed content. She made the choice to quit her position at the UN and take an indefinite break from her long-time boyfriend, Michael Anthony. It was a much needed emotional reset on her life. Putting an end to her dangerous, globetrotting career, Michonne was looking forward to living in a less emotionally complicated world.
Though complication found her once again one seemingly normal afternoon as she sat stuck in gridlocked traffic. She soon realized it wasn’t just an ordinary jam when the city suddenly erupted into chaos. Michonne witnessed citizens run through the streets chased by formerly healthy people who changed into vicious, unthinking and feral creatures from a single bite.
Barely escaping the turmoil, Michonne was called by her former boss, U.N. Deputy Secretary General Hershel Greene. He persuaded her to return to duty and go on an investigative mission to find what turned the world on it’s head.
She arrived by military escort to a U.S. Navy aircraft stationed off the coast of Georgia, where a team of scientists and military personnel were analyzing the scope of the worldwide outbreak. Upon arrival, Michonne was greeted by someone she thought she left in her past. Seeing him again brought back the past emotional turmoil in her heart, as the complicated feelings she’d ran from when she left the UN, came back to the forefront.
UN Soldier Rick Grimes was the most intense man she’d ever met. For ten years they were paired together on missions that often caused them to blur the lines between personal and professional. Seeing him again added to the stress of the already precarious global situation.
Forced to work together again, Rick and Michonne must lead a worldwide search for the source of the infection before it’s too late to save human civilization.
