It was a dark night in Minecraft. Everywhere there were zombies, skeletons, creepers and endermen. A few players only came in the darkness due to the dangers of the night. 2 newbies were camping in the dark. They don't realize that they need to build a shelter. As such, they were watched by 2 pairs of black eyes of a zombie.

Those eyes soon emerge from the darkness, revealing two figures, filled with a goal of killing everything alive. The newbies are unaware of zombies approaching behind them, until one strikes. The injured newbie falls to the ground, while his friend is battling the other zombie with his fists. Their technique fails, and the zombies successfully destroy them. They wander around the camp area, filled with dropped items of the defeated newbies, which is nothing more than porkchops, sticks and dirt.

In Minecraft, the goal of the hostile mobs is to destroy players. However, they are actually forced to by coding, which prevent the mob from making second decisions. The zombies are of course coded to do this, until one of them stirs and stops. Someone had deleted its code and replaced it with the players'. The zombie wakes up from it's code-driven life, having the feelings of a real life person. It now has a health and hunger bar, as well as the inventory. It was finally free, but all his other friends weren't. And, since the code only detects targets by checking their code, that meant that his fellow friends were now forced to be his enemies.

His buddy chases and claws him, dealing damage. The zombie knows that his friend wasn't doing this on purpose, and that his coding was forcing him to. He runs away into the night, with mobs chasing after him. What he doesn't know is why he was changed into a player, apart from appearance and mind. As he thinks this, he enters a very small cave, illuminated by a torch a player had placed before. But he still wasn't safe yet. He punches and obtains dirt using
his new player abilities and seals the entrance. The mobs chasing him give up knowing that there isn't going to be a way to get inside.

He plans to remain there until daylight, where players normally come out to hunt or harvest. But now he was feeling hungry. Luckily, he had picked up the porkchops of the killed newbies when his code was changed. He eats the porkchops, refilling his hunger bar. He also knew some survival skills as he had seen some players doing this, but was unable to use them until now.

Daylight comes and the mobs start to burn in the sun. The zombie-player breaks the dirt and walks outside. Without hesitating, he starts obtaining wood. He crafts a crafting table, which is essential to craft tools and weapons. As he starts to make tools, he checks around for creepers. Creepers don't burn in the day and can sneak up to a player, dealing an explosion that kills both of them at the end.

He makes an axe, a pickaxe and a shovel and starts chopping down trees for his home. Then he puts his crafting table inside. He starts a mine inside his house for useful resources to make better tools. After he is done, he goes out to hunt for animals. Animals drop meat which can be eaten raw or be cooked in a furnace to enhance how much it refills. By the time he finishes, the sun is sitting straight up above him.

He makes more things needed for better survival, such as furnaces and beds, and then crafts leather gear obtained from killing cows, to protect him from damage. In the distance, he sees a creeper behind a player harvesting wood slowly creeping up and exploding, killing the player in the process. But his loot is unharmed. The zombie-player runs to the ditch created by the blast and gathers the items, knowing that dropped loot should not be left out.

The sun is setting. He has gotten food, weapons, tools and shelter. He goes into his home and rests in the bed. He knows that there will be another day ahead. Another day of being a player...
*BOOM! BOOM BOOM BOOM!*

He hears the sound of multiple TNT exploding. Putting on his gear, he goes outside to figure out what's going on. He hears more tnt exploding and sees a tnt block launch up into the sky and explode. He goes deeper into the woods, at the direction of the explosions heard. Hiding behind a tree, he takes a peek. The only things he could see is a massive hole and the back of a player holding tnt and wearing diamond gear.

Was this the griefer they were talking about? thought the zombie-player. But once he takes another look, the player is gone. He couldn't see what he was wearing because it was too dark.
