Event Log: Dead Men Walking

Who: Everyone participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Dead Men Walking event!
Where: All around the city
When: September 14th-September 20th
Warnings: Zombies. Walkers. The Infected. Zeds. The undead. Risen.


Everything seems more or less normal in Hadriel on the 14th - at least at first. But wait, who's that over there? Why are they walking so weird? Are they feeling okay? Wow, did they just try to bite you? Oh shit, you might've seen a movie like this before. That was definitely a zombie.

But hey, it's no big deal. A few zombies here and there are pretty easy to avoid, especially when you can outrun them without too much trouble. They're only really dangerous if they're fast or if there are a lot of them, and they sure aren't fast! Only - well, before long, there are a lot of them. You can hardly go outside without running into one, and mobs form quickly. Went out for supplies? Let's hope they didn't follow you - you might get stuck in that shop, mobile corpses pounding on the door. Oh, and don't stand too close to the windows of your house. They'll be more than happy to smash the glass trying to get you.

Don't worry, though! A hard blow to the head will take these zombies out, and you'll be sitting pretty, as long as none of them bite you. None of them bit you... right? Wow, what a relief. We're all glad you're not concealing a life-threatening zombie bite from your friends! Who would do that, anyway? Now if you can manage that until the 20th, you'll be safe and sound as the zombies shamble out of the city. Hopefully you won't be shambling with them.

The bar. Probably one of the most common meeting places for these two, despite the fact that they live so close from each other.

One would think that when all hell breaks loose, they would prioritize survival over booze. That's when you're expecting all things to be logical and make sense, and since when has that ever been a thing when Rey walks into a room?

It certainly doesn't make sense for her to take a detour to Delight's bar rather than straight into a shower in this very moment. The door opens, and the pungent stench of death soon follows, along with the wet, red-splattered footsteps she leaves trailing behind her before plopping herself on the barstool. Blood still drips from her stained mahogany hair, down her chin, and off her clothes. It's more like she's walked in on a rainy day than a killing spree.

As casual as one can be while covered in blood, guts, and gore, Rey calmly reaches for an empty glass and bottle and proceeds to pour herself a drink, almost as though she doesn't even realize that Firo is there.

She does acknowledge him, though. She just doesn't care what anyone thinks. When you've spent the last few days fighting rather than sleeping, it's easy not to give a shit.

I love this already

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-15 01:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Firo looks up when the door opens, both to make sure it's not a very smart zombie and to see if it's anyone he knows. It's the latter! But she doesn't get the beaming smile she normally would, because he's too busy staring blankly.

Firo, at least, had the courtesy to fight minimal zombies on his way here. He even washed his hands before getting his drink, so the only grime from his struggle is some around his sleeves and pants. And a little on his cheek that he hasn't noticed, too.

The point is that when he came in, he, like a normal person, didn't slosh in a few gallons of blood with him. He wonders if Rey even notices. He narrows his eyes at her over his glass.

Sarcastically, "Did you at least wipe your feet at the door?"

Yep, he's judging you, Rey.
circumitus: even drones can fly away.... the queen is their slave... (chill out big head)

rey is the rudest.

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-15 02:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Too bad Rey doesn't give two flying tosses about what Firo thinks of her, or her lack of concern towards the bloody mess traced all the way to the bar area.

The adrenaline is barely winding down when she lifts her bourbon-filled glass and drinks. Half of that is quickly consumed by the time she acknowledges Firo and his query.

"Who cares about that?"

Not Rey. And definitely not when the city is already crawling with dead people trying to eat living people. She can't help but feel like this has happened before.

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-15 02:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Firo sighs. "Are you kiddin' me? Probably everybody who walks in here is gonna care!"

Everybody has the same priorities as Firo. Or they should.

He leans back on his bar stool, shaking his head as he takes a long drink. "I'd never let my place back home get this dirty. Same for Alveare."

Even when they had to take care of people in there, they were always tidy about it. That's why Firo, ever considerate, often chooses to choke people to within an inch of their life. Hardly any mess to distract the customers.
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-15 02:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Tragically, Rey can't say she'd share the same courtesy towards the people from back home. She doesn't nearly have the respect towards her fellows like Firo here to just break bones and leave it at that. Everything she does is loud and messy and hardly subtle to say the least.

"Not my problem. Things are already a mess in this place, thanks to Fear. Probably got his feelings hurt when we weren't spooking each other enough," she mutters that last part out.

After a moment, she sets down her glass, fingerprints smudged with red across the transparent surface. As she reaches across the bar top again, she grabs a couple towels this time.

It's a rough cleaning job (if you can even call it that), but she does what she can to wipe the smelly gunk off her bare arms, neck, and face. The stains are still evident, but at least she's not completely coated in thick layers of blood and rotting organs. She even takes a moment to wipe some of the filth left behind on the counter, glass and bottle she's using.

"Better?"

Come on, Rey. You can do better than that.
foundafamily: (pic#6109147)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-15 06:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Firo surveys her job with a flat look, but he can't quite hold back an amused snort. "'Better' doesn't exactly mean 'good.'"

Something that might convince her occurs to him. "...What if somebody comes in here and gets freaked out by all this? You'd just be makin' Fear happy."

Think of the Carlisles of the world! Or, more importantly, think of the Carlisles of the world feeding Fear, because their actual comfort isn't as important as spiting a god.
circumitus: its people like u that make people like me go to rehab. he has a lazy eye for christ sakes. (your girlfriend is a south jersey whore)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-16 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Countering with a flat look of her own, Rey drops the towel over the counter.

"Swarms of dead people are wandering the streets out there, and you think people are going to get freaked out by a bit of blood?"

Or a lot of blood, whatever.

She shrugs a shoulder. "Fear is already probably getting his jollies no matter what I do."

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-17 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
"Too bad, I thought for sure that'd work." Spite's always a good motivator, right? Firo sighs into his drink and drains the glass.

"You never know with people. Here most of 'em are fine, but some are real wimps."

He thinks a little more. "What if Delight gets pissed off and shuts this place down?"
circumitus: Keep up the good work. (it's a 12/12/12 miracle)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-18 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
Rey has plenty of spite, but it only extends so far. She doesn't really have any other comment beyond a nonchalant shrug and a dismissive demeanor.

"Delight doesn't seem to be the type to get pissed over some spilt blood. If she can set up an entire housing neighborhood and alter the city's appearance for several days, then chances are she's more than capable of fixing up a little mess without straining herself."

Well, it's a 'little mess' compared to what's going on outside.
foundafamily: (pic#7644682)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-18 04:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Firo's jaw hangs open just a little in disbelief. Okay, so she has her points in refuting his arguments, but seriously? He's seen enough filth to know not everyone shares his preferences, but, damn it, they should!

"Your mess! Jesus, what's your room look like if you've got this kinda attitude?"

He shakes his head. He's hardly as exasperated as he sounds; his volume is rarely directly proportional to his irritation.
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-19 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
"My room looks perfectly fine, thank you."

Albeit lacking in certain furniture that one would expect to find in a bedroom. But who cares about that?

That's when Rey takes a drink and fills her glass again. "Anyway, it's technically Fear's mess, since he's the likely culprit behind those assholes out there."
foundafamily: (pic#9874688)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-19 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
"I'll believe it when I see it."

He pours another drink. This is pretty fun, actually--it's like bugging Berga or Claire over drinks.

He laughs at the excuse. "That's like if you broke into a store and blamed the owner for the broken glass everywhere."
circumitus: How bout, IM SORRY FOR CALLING YOU 16 TIMES AND LEAVING YOU A TWO MINUTE VOICEMAIL OF MYSELF THROWING UP. (are you kidding me?)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-19 01:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Shooting him a forced dubious look, Rey scoffs at Firo's comment. "Are you really asking if you can see my room? You could at least buy me a drink."

Obvious teasing, of course. But the implications and innuendo were too tempting to pass up.

"If the store owner's an asshole, then he deserves it."

And Fear is definitely an asshole.
foundafamily: (pic#6109012)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-20 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
Obvious teasing? To most people, probably. Firo, on the hand, flushes red and nearly falls off of his chair.

"I-I didn't mean it like that! I just--"

What does he do? Is he supposed to apologize? Leave?
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-20 01:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps she should have expected it, but Firo's strong reaction has Rey snapping her head towards him with a mildly startled expression. What the hell is his deal?

"Relax, it was just a joke. You didn't do anything wrong."

Geez. She knows her sense of humor sucks, but that was abrupt.
foundafamily: (pic#7644853)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-21 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
He blinks and, after a moment, rights himself in his seat. "Huh?"

She's not mad? Weird... But maybe that's a good thing? He decides it's easier not to question it. "Well, in that case..." He decides to stare at the floor instead of her as he waits for his blush to die down. "Um, where were we?"

He'd like a speedy topic change, but he's too flustered to even remember what they were talking about.

circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-21 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Even with his head ducked like a dog that's been caught ripping open a bag of treats, the complexion of Firo's face is difficult to miss. Rey could take the easy route and continue to tease him, but something tells her that it'd be better to just indulge him and switch subjects.

"Right. So, how's the weather been treating you? What with all of the shuffling dead people walking the streets and all."

Hell if she wants to go back to arguing semantics again. She's more interested in how Firo has been handling this whole thing.
foundafamily: (pic#6109147)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-23 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
Thank god. Firo's totally fine with this change of pace.

"I got here fine, didn't I? What about you? This has gotta be one of the weirder things Fear's come up with."

Zombies as they are now aren't yet a cliche in Firo's time. He doesn't even know what to call these things.
circumitus: even drones can fly away.... the queen is their slave... (chill out big head)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-23 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
It's good that Firo doesn't seem to be the type to easily lose his cool. Means that he's less likely to add to Fear's meal.

Rey shrugs a shoulder, dismissive at the comment.

"Not really. If the idea was to scare people, he could've done much better."

Zomies are old news by the time Rey is from. That doesn't mean the old fad is unheard of.
foundafamily: (1.2)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-24 04:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Firo raises an eyebrow. Sure, he wouldn’t say anything like that’s scary, but it’s definitely something. “Oh yeah? It’s still pretty off-the-wall. You’re used to a buncha’ guys who look like corpses walkin’ around?”
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-24 11:17 pm (UTC)(link)
"Walking corpses? No. But I've seen my share of fucked up things from home that this is child's play."

Dealing with living, thinking people in a war zone offered more tactical challenges than witless husks.
foundafamily: (pic#6109147)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-27 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
Ever eager to defend what he sees as a possible avenue to insult, Firo adds, "I didn't say I was actually creeped out, just that he gets some points for creativity."

If she's going to bring it up... "Sounds like you've got some stories to share."

Hint hint.
circumitus: How bout, IM SORRY FOR CALLING YOU 16 TIMES AND LEAVING YOU A TWO MINUTE VOICEMAIL OF MYSELF THROWING UP. (are you kidding me?)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-09-28 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
Since Firo comes from a place where immortality and alchemy are a thing, and he's been in Hadriel long enough thus far, his response isn't so shocking. After a while, you just get numbed to it or you go insane. And Firo doesn't strike her as the type to lose his head.

Rey shrugs a shoulder, recognizing a hint when she sees one being given.

"My father's cells have been used to create all types of atrocities over the last few hundred years. So yes, perhaps I do."

No, pretty sure that translates to 'I definitely do'.
foundafamily: (3.3)

[personal profile] foundafamily 2016-09-29 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
Firo pauses, mouth opening a little in surprise, before responding. "The hell's that mean? What's he doin' with his cells?"

It reminds him a little bit about what Ennis said about Szilard's cells; he's not sure what precisely Rey means, but it sounds like something big's being done with the cells.
circumitus: Because you're marine grade... You rascal. (you need 400 proof or marine proof)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-10-01 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
The fact that Firo has something of an idea on the concept of genetics is surprising to Rey. He didn't seem to understand much when she was talking about her father's immortal cell line before. Though what parts he did get he didn't say.

"His cells have regenerative abilities. Works not much unlike your immortality. Except that his also have mutagen properties, which can have various outcomes when applied to different fields of study. Some have weaponized it. Others have used it to speed up its physiological effects, resulting in unpredictable changes to one's body.

"My vessels are also made up of these cells," she adds.

Whether or not Firo will understand any of that, she can't tell. She isn't well practiced at speaking in laymen's terms.
