Why This Must Be Read: It's a zombie fic about Ugly Betty and it makes. it. work. It's just so charming and funny, I can't rec it enough. AUing Hilda's wedding at the end of season it brings about the zombie element so effortlessly and perfectly in tune with what the show is about. I genuinely love how everything is handled here and how Daniel and Betty relationship comes about. Also, the end. Oh the end! It's so perfectly Betty.

Why This Must Be Read: Besides the fact that it's intelligent, dramatic and exciting...this must be read because it is one of the most effective bits of world building I've seen in any fandom. The author writes incredible detail without being boring. It's a WIP, but "Book 1" ends in a very satisfying spot.
