Wanting to contribute to the night, KENDIS CRAWFORD-GANGE and VOLUNTEER 02 bring plenty of mixers to go along with the drinks for the night. It's a damn good thing that HARPER still has alcohol left over from the neighborhood party.
VOLUNTEER 03 brought their own mega-sized bean bag to share but are pleased to see that they may not have to: there's a sprinkling of futons, beanbags, and even a couch up on the roof.
VOLUNTEER 04 keeps popping in and out of the event, leaving when they don't like something and coming back when they do. On one of their trips back, they bring along VOLUNTEER 05 who forgot the event was taking place at all.
ANNABELLE WALLIS isn't so sure that they're down for seeing DAWN OF THE DEAD, but they also don't want to be seen as a chicken. So they stay and cuddle up extra close to VOLUNTEER 07.
VOLUNTEER 08 checks their phone during the movie and sees that #zombiepubcrawl is trending on the local twitter. They're a bit bummed that they missed the memo.
Out for a night time stroll, LUNA KARISSON notices a sudden flurry of rats congregating... but there's something really off about them, and they're not sure they have ever smelled anything so foul before. They watch as the rats take off towards Baltic at a pace that is much slower than what's usually expected of rodents.
VOLUNTEER 10 notices that they're just about out of mixers and alcohol. They announce in a way not unlike Matthew Lillard in Scream that they'll ~*~be right back~*~. They do not come back. What is it that prevents them from coming back? That's up to you. :)
MERRY DAVIS goes for a smoke break at the edge of the roof. They look over the expanse of Delphi street only to see a cluster moving at a moderate pace down the walkways. Dozens of people who're walking a little... funky. Like they've forgotten how to walk. They watch until they are close enough to tell that those are definitely not regular humans. They give a blood curdling scream. VOLUNTEER 12 mumbles that this scene in DAWN OF THE DEAD isn't even that scary.
LIA SHASHA-GORDON manages to get into the elevator of Baltic, but not before they feel something gummy bite into their arm. At least, they think it was a bite. It doesn't hurt. Not like the movies have ever made it out to be. But if the movies are anything to go by... They conceal the little muck of grime and gut left behind on their arm from DARREN WAN, who was initially in the elevator and is now their elevator buddy for the duration of the event.
On the rooftop, JAY HWANG takes initiative and starts to barricade the door. As soon as they move the heavier things against it, they hear banging. VOLUNTEER 16's voice comes from the other side, begging to be let in. What do they do?
VOLUNTEER 17 has had a plan for what to do in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse since fucking Middle School. Granted, they didn't update the, 'what to do,' guide after they moved to San Francisco, and are a little shell-shocked and stunned. VOLUNTEER 18 notices that they seem to be frozen and go to comfort them.
JUDE LOWE notices that VOLUNTEER 20, VOLUNTEER 21, and VOLUNTEER 22 have taken to the rooftop of Park Avenue. They try to communicate with one another despite the distance.
KENDRA HATHAWAY is on the wrong floor of Baltic when the zombies begin to move in. They bang on HUGH BLUMENKRANTZ's door hoping that they will answer.
VOLUNTEER 25 and VOLUNTEER 26 figure that because this might be their last night alive... well. Maybe a little making out won't hurt. It beats being scared.
LEONIE WARREN has their wits about them enough to notice that the Zombies seem to only really be interested in congregating around Baltic Avenue.
VI DARNELL sees what appears to be a rough, sloppy circle of zombies encasing ERIC MARLOWE. They are not hurting him. They're not moving at all, actually. They're just... standing there, keeping him contained. VI DARNELL wonders if they're looking at Hades.
ODESSA BRANDT, who is watching the event from their window, hears something in their kitchen. They nervously go to investigate only to find dozens of rotting rats scurrying around. They scream bloody murder and run out of their apartment to find refuge somewhere else. They leave their apartment door open in the process.
AMBROSE ALBRIGHT prays to Hades, wherever they are, to please end this madness. Not a second later, they find that the zombies seem to be walking back from whence they came.
3RD FLOOR BALTIC AVE VOLUNTEER 31, who had been asleep for most of the event, wakes up in the morning to find a disembodied arm outside of their door.
VOLUNTEER 32 find previously trapped VOLUNTEER 13 and VOLUNTEER 14 in the elevator. They let them know that it's over; that everyone is okay.
FRANK MURPHY texts Harper to see what's up?? Harper does not respond until 7:19 AM the next day.
Set up for everyone's eating pleasures are various popcorn and popcorn related toppings, snacks, and various drinks that everyone can delight in. There's alcohol and no one's carding but be cool, nerds.
Let's be real, though. We're not here for the snacks and movies, are we?
Everything goes pretty smoothly during the movie event; movies are played with various persons popping in and out to their liking. It's shaping up to be a pretty chill kickback. About an hour into DAWN OF THE DEAD, or around 12:50 AM, is when they show up, walking down the street with slow, absent-minded purpose.
Everybody is welcome to notice them from their townhomes or various apartments. THOUGH THE ZOMBEIS MAY TAKE DETOURS, their primary objective is to find Hades, who they know to be at the rooftop of Baltic Avenue.
They'll start trickling in slowly, and then all at once they breach the apartment doors. They'll linger on various floors, try to make their way up the stairs, surround the apartment complex, etc. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A STRAY ZOMBIE OR TWO to find their way into Park Avenue or a townhome, that's fine! For plot purposes, they would probably spend their time trying to look for a way out. They would seem sad, or as sad as a zombie can, that they are separated from the horde/aren't meeting their objective.
THESE ZOMBIES ARE MEANT TO BE GROSS and in various states of decay. If you don't see them, you might smell them. There will also be other various undead creatures: rats, primary. Bugs. If it's dead, now it's undead. Oops.
For timeline and narrative purposes, the zombies will RETREAT VERY SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING at around 1:30 AM. They will walk back from whence they came.
We know not everyone is okay with zombies, and you definitely do not have to take part. We are purposefully making this a late-night, short event so that if you would like, your character can sleep through it. ♥
I tried to utilize the volunteer spots to set the mood and am using this space as more of an extrapolation of the timeline, so please let me know if you have any other questions, etc! I want everyone to be able to have the fun that they want to with this.
Andd, lastly! I'm posting this ahead of time so that y'all have as much time as possible to wrap things up here before it goes live, especially with tomorrow being Father's Day. The actual event happens on the 18th! :)
