DeadEnds is a work of interactive zombie fiction by Creator/NatePiekos that follows the story of a young delivery boy named Eddie Beames who finds himself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse when strange meteors begin falling from the sky one night. With each new chapter comes new twists and turns, new allies and enemies, and new danger. Sadly, as of this writing it hasn't updated in over a year (but at six chapters is still worth checking out).

This series provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Foxy can kick some serious ass [[spoiler:even when she has a gun pointed at her head.]]
* AnyoneCanDie: Sure enough, by the end of each chapter the number of remaining survivors can usually be counted on one hand.
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Ephram]]
* BlatantLies: If [[spoiler:Ralph]] tries this on [[spoiler:Ephram]] he'll be shot and left for dead...
* BuriedAlive: Worse. [[spoiler: In chapter 2 Eddie and Foxy are trapped underground in a room that Ms. Dorrance has just informed them is the place she buried the girls she murdered. Needless to say, this is not a good place to be during a ZombieApocalypse.]]
* ConjoinedTwins: Zeke Sr and Zeke Jr
* CrazySurvivalist: Several appear from chapter 3 onwards. Many are antagonistic, but a few are more then willing to help.
* CreepyBasement: St. Ingrids basement. Mostly because its [[spoiler:full of murdered teenage girls who come back to life as zombies.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Ephram]] in chapter [[spoiler:3]] and [[spoiler:Franklin]] in chapter [[spoiler:6]]
* GentleGiant: Ben
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: All of the undead have glowing red eyes. This leads to some serious horror whenever the characters are in a dimly lit area. Just read the beginning of chapter [[spoiler:2]].
* GraveClouds: Early in the story Eddie finds himself walking down a lonely road in freezing cold weather. As he is making his way through the darkness he happens to stumble upon a cemetery. CueTheRain.
* [[spoiler:GreenRocks]]: The cause of the zombies.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Ralph]] in chapter [[spoiler:5]]
* KillEmAll: If you make a really bad choice everyone will die.
* LuckBasedMission: Early chapters have randomized consequences for choices, which means that it is possible to exhaust every option and still end up dead due to poor luck. Fortunately, this feature seems to have disappeared in the more recent chapters.
* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Massively averted. By the end of the first chapter alone an entire girl's school (except for one of the main characters) is zombified along with their head mistress.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Zeke Sr and Zeke Jr]]
** Eddie has the option of doing this to a dog in the first chapter. [[spoiler:It gets him bitten and infected.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Ralph]] averts this my pulling a HeelFaceTurn before he did something he'd regret.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In chapter [[spoiler:3]], and its a big one...
* NoFairCheating: "The dead do not reveal their secrets!"
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted by Foxy, who gets hers in the middle of the story... [[spoiler:It ends up having zero effect on the overall plot.]]
* OhCrap: Usually at least a couple per chapter, but the best example happens at the very end of chapter [[spoiler:1]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent
* RaisingTheSteaks: Let's go to a farm!
* RevolversAreJustBetter: Not just any revolvers... [[spoiler:DOC HOLLIDAY'S REVOLVERS!!!!!]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:Ephram]]
* RupturedAppendix: The victim gets to the hospital just in time. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the recent outbreak prevents the operation from happening, [[AdultFear leaving her to die a slow, painful death while her husband is powerless to do anything to save her]].]]
* SassyBlackWoman: Foxy
* SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere: A lethal version occurs in chapter [[spoiler:5]] if you make a poor choice...
* SnowMeansDeath: Snow conceals a massive pile of zombies in chapter [[spoiler:4]] that the heros notice a little too late...
* TheManyDeathsOfYou: Some of which can be easily overlooked due to some chapters having a randomization factor. A choice that led to safety last time could result in death the next time.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler:Eddie's grandma]]
* [[spoiler:UndeadChild]]: Quite a few actually...
* {{Unwinnable}}: If you [[spoiler:lie to the Cruikshank family]] in chapter [[spoiler:3]] you might as well close the window. All the choices lead to death.
* WhamLine: [[spoiler:"Mary...the other runaways...I buried them all in there..."]]
* ZombieApocalypse
* ZombieInfectee: This occurs to [[spoiler:Eddie]] if you make a bad choice.
