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.]

"OW!" That had Grundy turning in one direction, missing seeing Momoko and Jono by a very little bit, then being driven back by Dinah's next scream. She was definitely herding him to a place where Momoko could pounce.


//Fat bloody chance.// Yes, Jono did dredge up some extra focus just so that he could snark at Grundy. //Remember that smashy place you want to go to? We're going to help you get there, mate.//

His knees were buckling underneath him, and he was starting to see spots of light. Blossom's appearance was one hell of a relief, really.

//Count of three, then. Dinah and I will stop attacking long enough for Blossom to get that lasso firmly in there. One... two...//

And then, the wall of fire stopped, leaving Jono swaying where he stood, trying to mentally coerce Grundy into being a little more cooperative for the flying... boy.

"THREE!" Blossom had managed to get close enough that the yo-yo was well on its way to making three loops around the large 'man'. As soon as the base looped around the string for the last time, Blossom pulled up sharp, tightening the White-light-infused string. The strong resistance at the other end made it a struggle of superstrength versus supernatural strength, but Blossom wasn't about to give up!

He was, in fact, already trying to head back to pick up Jono, struggling zombie on the line or no.

Grundy thrashed like the biggest land-whale ever, howling and gnashing his teeth, trying to get a hand or a tooth into the line.


Would it help stop the struggling if Blossom tugged the string and sent him into a nearby building? Because seriously! "You're throwing off my flight!!"



Dinah had a much clearer shot of just Grundy now that he was dangling, and he was screaming again in a second. And still, thrashing and thrashing and jerking and kicking and punching and--


Rrrrrrrrr. Fine! If Solomon Grundy was going to struggle, that simply meant Blossom had to work harder!

He stopped in mid-air and tightened up the string. It made the distance between himself and the captured robber smaller, yes, but it gave him better control and made it easier to fly.

Which he was doing again, now, heading straight for you, Jono! Blossom dropped and began flying low enough to get Jono that the zombie was now being dragged along the street behind him.

Better be ready to be scooped up, Jono! You'll get hit by a very unhappy zombie and some flying pavement if Blossom misses.

Jono was perfectly ready to be scooped up, in that 'actually having difficulty remaining conscious' sort of way!

Which was to say, at least he had his eyes open and his attention directed somewhat toward Blossom, and his arms were up somewhat so that she'd have something to grab at once she got closer.

Yeah, that vague wavy way he was waiting for her? Totally not making for a happy Blossom. Her late arrival had meant the rest of the team had suffered - Jono had suffered!

He sped up and dipped, picking Jono up as carefully as if he was a mille-feuille. "Stay with me, okay," Blossom murmured as he rose up into the air, did a back flip (oops sending Grundy into another wall), and began heading back in the direction of Old Gotham.

Dinah was racing to keep up -- well, as much as she could, because so much time screaming had kind of wiped her out too. But she was keeping them in sight, and then parkour'd through a back alley to head to the area she'd told Jono about.

"HERE!" she yelled, standing on top of the sign. "DROP HIM HERE!"

Hopefully Dinah meant Grundy!

Blossom flew fast and hard over the subway entrance, skimming just high enough over the remainder of the sign that the struggling zombie was slammed into it just as Blossom let go of the string.

Jono would have been very upset if Momoko were to drop him here.

//Nicely done,// he murmured, peering down as Grundy fell. //Now hopefully he'll do th'rest of our work for us.//

If he didn't, Jono was going to have to resort to drastic measures. Power-napping directly in his path or something.


Grundy fell further down the staircase, and his weight brought down one of the supports. "GRRRRRR!"

He started swinging his fists, into the walls, the falling cement, the supports again... and another ton of rubble fell down on him.

It took a while. But eventually, the rubble stopped moving.

...and somewhere in Slaughter Swamp, a bubble broke on the surface of the water.
