[Open] I'll put my armor on

Who: Cissie King-Jones and YOU
Where: Alexandria
When: Throughout the event
Rating: ...Z for zombies? There's gonna be death and angst in here.
Summary: Catch-all for the event; Cissie's here to kick some zombie ass... and lose some friends. This shouldn't be a problem, right? (Spoiler: it's going to be a problem.)
The Story: Cissie's a retired superhero, but zombies don't care about retirement.

[Days 1-2]

[The first thing Cissie does is find her friends. She's going to stick close to Tim and Kon, but there are other friends she needs to find and check in on. She's full of nervous energy, and she's not at all sure if she can do what she's afraid she'll need to do before this is all over. All she knows is that this is not a fight she's going to be able to avoid, and so she needs to steel herself and get prepared. Which means finding her people, and offering her help however she can.]

[Day 3]

[Zombies are exactly as disgusting and awful and horrible as Cissie's always imagined. Even the Black Lanterns weren't anything like this. There's no amount of preparing Cissie could have had for this. She's got her arrows, and a head is a big target. She doesn't miss. She's better at a distance, but she's got enough training that close combat is... uncomfortably familiar. At least fighting the horde leaves little time for thinking.]

[Day 4]

[The perpetual adrenaline rush is wearing off rapidly in the light of day, and in the face of bodies. Bodies everywhere. Cissie's running on autopilot, doing what she can to help. Now that the fighting is over, her field medic training kicks in. If she's helping and doing and not sitting still, she doesn't have to think about what she's seen. What she's done.]

[ooc] Feel free to run into Cissie anywhere at any time! Will match formats.

day 3

[You'd think Kon would know better.

He's been a superhero all his life, even if that's just a few years. He knows it's not all fun and games. He knows you can get seriously hurt if you're not careful, that people die.

But zombies are kind of fun in that you can just go all out and not really worry about hurting anyone since they're already dead. He was doing his hero thing, fighting, saving people, and... ow.

Apparently his invulnerability is as on the fritz as the rest of his powers. And now he has a zombie bite on his shoulder. Right where it can't actually be amputated.

And it hurts. That's the weird thing. It's not like he's never been hurt before, but it's rare enough that the novelty of it is as weird as anything else. He keeps poking the bandaged wound and wincing. Because ow. But weird.]

Maybe... maybe my Kryptonian biology means I'm immune? It's possible, right?

[Tim is worried. If the bite got through his TTK and past any invulnerability he might ave beyond that, he's not sure Kon's immune system is going to fare much better.]

It's possible.

[He hopes so, anyway. He doesn't even want to think about if it's not. Even after the advice he got from George.

And the other thing.]

[ kara, who is resting nearby with her own shoulder and collarbone bite bandaged, snorts. ]

Something tells me we're not that lucky.

[ it's the same something that has her feeling exhausted. it's left her sweaty, pale, and drawn. even in the shade. ]

But at least we know this isn't going to last.
cloned: (woah)

[personal profile] cloned 2017-07-19 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Right. Cause people come back from the dead, right? [He isn't feeling so good. He's pretty sure he's not immune. He swallows.] Like, really fast. So it's barely even dying at all, just a really extended, painful nap.

[Oh god, he's going to die.]

[personal profile] mrsarcastic003 2017-07-20 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
[It probably won't last much longer, but Tim has a feeling it's going to last long enough for things to get really, really difficult. Something Georgia had told him early in the event sticks out in his mind, though, and he looks between Kara and Kon.]

What do you want?

[personal profile] cloned 2017-07-24 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kon swallows and looks over at Kara.] For this not to be happening?

[He doesn't want to die. He doesn't want to be a zombie. He pokes at the wound again, trying to swallow back the urge to vomit.]

What options do we even have? I mean, we've all seen the movies....

[When you get bit by a zombie, there's a very clear what you're supposed to do. It's just horrible and terrifying and way easier to think about when it's not the reality that's happening.]

[personal profile] crisised 2017-07-24 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
It not happening isn't really an option. [ especially not when they're only a couple days into this event.

kara breathes in deep, about to sigh, and gets caught up in a coughing fit. which she's taking as a not-good sign. ]

We've got a couple options, the way I see it. Either we wait, turn, and possibly hurt other people once we're undead, or we end it now.

[ this is where she gets tripped up. because she doesn't think she can kill her cousin. and she's not entirely sure she can kill herself, either. ]
mrsarcastic003: (Frowning Tim)

[personal profile] mrsarcastic003 2017-07-26 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Tim wishes that yelling or denial or anything else would stop what's happening here, but of course it won't and it can't. The best they can hope for it what Cissie said--that they'll be able to stop Kara and Kon from hurting anyone, and right now, that feels like a pretty massive thing to ask.

He nods his agreement anyway.]

We promise.

[Kon squeezes Cissie's hand very lightly, until he realizes he doesn't need to moderate how much pressure he's putting quite so much. His powers are so dampened. He squeezes a little harder, swallowing.]

There really isn't an option at all, is there?

[He looks over at Kara and nods, then back at Tim and Cissie.]

...make it quick? And... and we'll be back before you know it. Just wait.

[ kara scoots a little closer to kon, eyes a little wet. it's not that she's scared of dying. especially since she knows she'll be back. she just... hates that this is happening to kon. that cissie and tim have this awful responsibility on their shoulders. ]

Thank you.

[ it feels an odd thing to thank them for. but what else can she say? ]
mrsarcastic003: (Crying)

[Becoming Robin came with a lot of training. Weapons (he does know how to use a gun. Even if Bruce hates them, he would never leave them unprepared), martial arts, investigation, tactics... Somehow 'your friends are about to become zombies and kill you and you have to shoot them before they do' had never come up. He can almost feel Bruce staring a him and saying "We don't kill," but Bruce isn't here. He's not the one looking into two of his friends' eyes and promising that he won't let them hurt anyone, and knowing that there's only one way to make that happen.

He can't make Cissie do this alone.

Impulsively, he leans in to give each of them a quick hug, and kiss on the cheek before stepping back and taking out the gun George had given him. He'd never expected to have to use it for this.]

What she said. When you wake up, we're going to have an epic pizza party. Kara, what's your favorite movie? Exploding Explosions? Romantic Romances? Comedic Comedies? I'm voting for a kung fu movie personally.

[He takes Kara's hands, letting his eyes slip shut. If he ignores the way his eyes are a whole lot wetter than usual, maybe they will too. He's being nice enough to ignore their crying, after all.]

Surprise us.

[ rao, this is even worse than she thought it would be. it's cissie's words and tim hugging her that push her over the edge and make the tears start to slip down her cheeks. ]

I love you guys too, [ she says as she gives tim a squeeze and a return kiss to his forehead. she leans into kon for a moment before pressing a soft kiss to his temple. ] You too, [ she murmurs a word in kryptonian--'little brother'. ]

We should watch multiple movies. And Shanghai Noon should be one of them. [ a comedy, a western, and a kung-fu movie all in one. can't go wrong there.

kara closes her eyes and breathes out a very shaky breath, trying to brace herself for what's about to come. not that it's going to be much for her. mostly painless and over quick, probably. it's a small blessing; she doesn't want to think about what it would be like for cissie and tim if they only had something like knives on them. ]

Day 3, if this is okay?

[personal profile] nomorules 2017-07-18 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Zombies. Of all the motherfucking cognitions to happen--

The heavy, studded bat he's been bashing skulls with for the better part of the morning connects with a zombie's head. The reverberation travels all the way up his arms into his shoulders.

--this is all Tweedledumb and dumbers' fault--

With a sick squelch, the zombie slumps against a wall of the narrow alley Ryuji's navigating, and he stops to catch his breath, sweat sticking his mask to his face, the black of his phantom thief outfit shiny with stray drops of blood.

He shouldn't be out here; even he's not stupid enough to think so. But it had felt even more wrong to cozy up inside while living people flee for cover outside. Coming out to help clear the street is the least he can do--people as fast on their feet as Ryuji make good distractions.

And thank god he is fast, because it only takes seconds before the mouth of the alley is filling up with zombies following the sound of his swing. Turning to retreat the other way, another of the disfigured dead lurches into view and for one dismaying second he thinks he's going to have to play linebacker to shove his way out. Risky, to get close--

An arrow decides his escape route for him, lodging in the center of the zombie's face.

... Well, that was easy.]

[And see her he does--an arm waving with more purpose than the uncoordinated snatching motions of the zombies, and attached to a pink and healthy person. Oh man. Thank god for fierce blondes with great eyesight.

He doesn't recognize her as one of the girls he'd (unsuccessfully) tried to hit on at first, but he throws a yellow gloved hand up in a return wave. Nice shooting. He, too, avoids hollering, but not for any thought of staying under the radar--he needs his breath for the run, using his momentum to leap over the spilled bodies and push past the lone stragglers.

Slowing at the alley's mouth, he glances around, tallying up his options--which way now?]
