"I've heard, Potions Master, that there are still large stashes of chocolate to be found at Honeydukes, so that's where we're headed."
"You're insane, werewolf. We will never get through. Honeydukes is surrounded by a sea of red-headed zombies and other nefarious miscreants."
"Come on, Severus, where is your sense of adventure? Where is that kick-arse spirit and the philosophy that all zombies must die?"
"My spirit for self-preservation far out weighs any sense of kick-arse, especially when all you're interested in is getting your grubby hands on some chocolate. It certainly is not worth the risk to life and limb."
Remus shook his head and pointed the silver Bentley in the direction of the candy store.
Severus sighed with resignation and stuck his head out the window of the Bentley, fingering the trigger of his Zomblaster lightly. Severus knew from experience that the flea-bitten werewolf could not be deterred from his quest for chocolate under any circumstance.
"This is it, Severus," Remus shouted before gunning the engine and flooring the gas pedal. "You fire the Zomnullify potion into the crowd. I'm going to ram the front door."
"Suicide, werewolf, it is pure suicide. We're going to get eaten, fool."
"No we're not, darling," Remus cackled madly as the Bentley raced toward the storefront. "We're going to dine on fine chocolate tonight. Here we go!"
The car crashed through the front door, taking out half the wall with it as wood and glass shards flew in all directions. The noxious fumes and grey smoke from the Zomnullify potion filled the air around them, temporally obscuring their view.
As Remus and Severus scrambled out of the wreckage, the zombies that didn't die during the first volley of Zomnullify lumbered through the destroyed storefront in their mindless hunt for fresh brains. Remus and Severus dove over the rickety counter and hunkered down while Severus reloaded the Zomblaster.
“Hurry," Remus urged. "They're almost on top of us."
Severus popped up from behind the counter, firing the Zomblaster back and forth with manic speed and accuracy. Machine Gun Kelly had nothing on Severus Snape. The first zombie wave dropped easily, but the second group came right behind them. Severus fell to his knees, trying to hurriedly reload before it was too late.
"Werewolf, help me. Hold them off until I can finish reloading."
"Mmmm hmmm," Remus moaned.
Severus looked over at his lover and growled, "Fuck, we're dead."
Remus smiled up at him sheepishly, mouth still covered in dark chocolate as he licked the evidence from his fingertips.
"At least I can die happy now, Potions Master," Remus grinned as he stood up, stuffing his pockets with as much chocolate as they could hold, and fired his semiautomatic into the growing swarm of zombies.
"Die, motherfuckers, die!" Remus shouted, spraying the creatures with a hail of bullets.
Severus smirked as he joined his lover, firing blast after blast of Zomnullify at the advancing horde.
Oh well, Severus supposed it was worth the trip to the candy store in the end. Tonight his lover would be on a sugar rush from hell and he was in for one incredible fuck. Of course, this heightened the will to live ten-fold. Severus Snape had no intention of losing his brains.
"Die, motherfuckers, die!" Severus shouted as he and his lover fought their way out of Honeydukes and down the street to safety.
