This is an alternate ending for Feed. As Grant put it:
This is another way the end of Feed could have gone: it picks up with the events of what would originally have been chapter twenty-five. It is not what happened.

But it could have.

We came very close.
The actual canon ending has more punch. I think I prefer it, from a critical standpoint. But bizarrely, I think I would have preferred the Deadline that would have resulted from this ending. Rick being gloomy and morose until something came along to make him snap out of it? Oh hell yes, I'm on board for that.

If you haven't already read Feed (and ideally, Deadline), go read it/them first. Then come back and read this. (If you haven't read Feed it would be spoilery as all get out as well as confusing. And there are some things from Deadline that make this a more interesting read if you know them.)

Kelly H. (Maybedog) Your review is a little confusing but I guess I need to go read Feed first. It's been on my shelf for awhile so perhaps I should move it up.
