New Gotham, Saturday
"Braaaaaains," Dinah chanted at Gabby. "Huuuuuuungrrrrryyy..."

"You need more blood on your face, hold still," her roomie answered.

The accoutrements of zombification were everywhere around their apartment. As well as the canned goods needed for their entry fee.

Now all they needed was an army.

[ooc: for those going zombie-walking! threads up in a second.]

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Grundy wheeled around, eyes wide and confused. "WHO TALKING? WHO TALKING TO GRUNDY?"

"Shit!" muttered one of the bank robbers, then clearly gave up on Grundy, running as fast as he could. Dinah gave Jono a thumbs' up and gave chase.

"WHOOOOOO?! SOLOMON GRUNDY TALKING TO YOU!"

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Okay, Jono. Think fast.

//Jiminy Cricket,// he replied, burying his face in his hand as he did so. //I'm here to be your conscience, mate. Relax, just calm down. Isn't it so much nicer to be calm?//

It would be so much easier to just stand up and blow him to kingdom come, wouldn't it? But Grundy hadn't actually hurt anybody yet, and there were still far too many people desperately shambling away, trying not to draw attention to themselves.

Re: Wuh-Oh.

"LOUD CRICKET," was Grundy's comeback. He snarled, whirling around and around, and then picked up a car. "QUIIIIIIEETTTTT!"

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Well. That didn't work.

//You want me to be quiet?// Jono's head was peering up from behind the car again, looking to see where the crowd was, as compared to Grundy. Most of them still seemed to be in front of him, which meant... //I'm right behind you. See if you can find me, hm?//

Yeah, it looked like the wrappings were going to have to come off soon, after all.

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Grundy turned and threw the car. And then started charging in that direction, away from the crowd. "COME OUT NOW! FIGHT GRUNDY!"

And that lead to the zombies scampering in the other direction, as far away as possible, and then running because REAL ZOMBIE GET AWAY YAAAA! So hey, at least that part of the plan worked.

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Yessss! Jono was going to consider that a point for team good guys, here!

//Oop, can't see me? I forgot to mention, I'm very, very small. I am a cricket, after all. You might have to get down on your hands and knees and squint.//

Please get down on your hands and knees and squint?

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Grundy did in fact, get down on his hands and knees. Then roared.

"LYING! LYING TO GRUNDY! GRUNDY HATE THAT!"

Good-bye, Prius. You were a nice car when someone parked you there.

Smaaaash!

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Dinah had come running back by now, and stopped on the other side of the square from Jono. Most of the bystanders had cleared out by now; there were a few zombies who looked injured, or who were playing dead, along the edges of the sidewalk close to Grundy.

Hunh, not a bad strategy, she'd have to remember that....

Okay, maybe-- She concentrated, and a little VW bug started rolling away from Grundy. Maybe he'd follow it, maybe it would give someone cover, maybe Jono could use the distraction?

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Bless you, Dinah. You were Jono's favourite telekenetic.

//Oop, you're right. I'm actually in that car that's moving, there. It's a bug, do you get it? A cricket driving a bug? Again, I'm very small, maybe that's why you missed it when I moved to get into it...//

Jono was slipping out from behind his cover, trying to make his way around to Dinah, now, his hand reaching up and starting to peel his wrappings down, just in case.

Re: Wuh-Oh.

"CAN'T FOOL GRUNDY!" he yelled in maniacal glee. He started chasing the car, which sped up as it hit an incline. "GONNA GET YOUUUUUU!"

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Dinah slid downward to get at least some cover behind a dumpster, and made frantic waving motions to Jono. Grundy was half a block away now, and she was trying to plot out in her head how to get the handful of people on the sidelines out of there to safety.

"Plans? Ideas? Concepts?" she said as he got closer.

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Jono watched him run for a moment, and then broke into a run himself, to catch up with Dinah.

//How long you figure that'll keep him occupied?// He looked around that those who were playing dead on the ground. //Because however long it takes for him to get tired of chasing that car is as long as you all have to get the hell out of here. Go, run!//

Now was an excellent time for the stragglers around here to scatter, he figured.

//As for plans... good lord, I don't even know. He's ridiculously strong, which means getting close is a horrible idea. What do you know about him besides?//

Re: Wuh-Oh.

Dinah took a minute to help match up a couple of those zombies with each other, so they could help each other limp and stagger away, then turned back to Jono, grimacing.

"Not very bright, like you've noticed. I hope he doesn't hurt anybody when he catches that car." She bit her lip. "Immune to magic, from what I've heard. Uhh, I think... yeah, somebody tried to freeze him once, it didn't take. And someone tried to set him on fire and he kept going. At least if all the stories have some kind of facts behind them." She laced her fingers together on the back of her neck, and shook her head. "I have no idea if the Canary Cry would work on him or just make him more angry."

Re: Wuh-Oh.

//I'm a walking bomb, if push comes to shove,// Jono hedged, looking back down the street, eyebrows furrowed. //I'm not terribly keen on the idea of leveling the neighbourhood, though he's already making good headway on that one. I could try to get into his head, perhaps. Make him not want to be in the city...?//

Which would involve going into a dead man's head. Not really something Jono was keen on, either, but when push came to shove...

Re: Wuh-Oh.

"Worth a shot. At least before we pull out the big guns of trying to fight him directly," Dinah said, slightly grim. The zombie make-up made it look even more solemn. "The NGPD have a perimeter now, nobody new should be getting closer. I threw two of the robbers at them, one of them got away. At least for now."

Yeah, after this was over, she was going to track that guy down and kick his ass for pulling Grundy into a daylight robbery, jeez.

"They'll have to start moving in soon. They'll try to contain him, but..."

Yeah. Indestructible undead super-strong zombie.
