video; event day four

[The device falls from a slack hand, found in a pocket and puzzled over for only a moment before it's dropped. A smear of dirty water smudges one corner of the camera, and someone stumbles halfway into view on the screen.

That someone is soaked through, wearing a white shirt and a dirty, red tie that stands out almost ghoulishly against the pallor of his skin - just a little too grey to be natural. Maybe it's just the cold. He's shivering and gripping his upper arms, viewing the bloody carnage that surrounds him with the wide-eyed bewilderment of a child.

But no matter how you spin it, there is something visibly off about this man. His colour is one thing, but the bluish veins that stand out against his skin and the pewter-grey shade of his eyes paint a very peculiar picture.

He looks more like the bodies surrounding him than anyone who might be watching.

The backdrop paints a clear picture of just where he is, and takes a few shuffling steps forwards, displaying something that looks like uncertainty. His expression works - confusion, worry - then he moves out of shot.

[[ooc: inviting anyone to come across him in person, or shout at him from the phone! he'll come back and pick it up. all I ask is pls don't shoot him in the head.]]

[ Some of the areas they managed to clear, not without significant losses. Cullen patrols, briefly, to ensure they stay that way. He hears the sounds of a new fight in the distance, and intends to join it shortly. For now he still walks where it is quiet enough to hear his footsteps, where--

Where one of the creatures is still standing, amidst the fallen. Cullen draws his blade and yet-- Something about it seems off. Not at first glance, but that look. More alert than their eyes ever were, though Cullen blames his imagination. He advances briskly, ready to strike, and yet--

If you can still speak, do it now.

[ Cullen stops in his tracks, nearly startled. He did not expect an answer, he realises. He lowers his sword without hesitation. It does not yet find its way back into its sheath.

You look dreadful, he doesn't say. Obvious enough. Irrelevant. As opposed to:

Were you infected?

[ Infected and delirious with fever, he keeps at the back of his mind. But there is another possibility. Cullen takes a step closer, and confirms what he suspected: Not a face he has seen before. A new arrival then? ]

Do you know about Wonderland already?

[ Liv is covered in carnage, she smells like the dead, and she's helping to drag people to the burn piles. She's mostly sad for all of these people, and out of respect (and also because she doesn't need to eat), she leaves brains where they should be, in the people who died. It's as she's carrying a detached arm - looks like someone went the amputation route - to the fire pit when she sees another walker. A rogue one, shuffling a little, and she drops the arm to pull out her knife.

None of the walkers advanced on her because she's dead, she guesses. She has scratch marks all over but never got sick. So, it's not surprising that this one doesn't advance on her like she's a walking buffet, and when she gets close enough, she reaches out to grab his shirt and get a grip in order to, well, kill him. But there's something about this one, and she hesitates, looking sad. ]

I'm sorry this happened to you.

Holy shi-

[ Liv takes one big step back, still holding the knife and looking at him like she just saw...well. A zombie talk to her. ]

Are you...are you alive?
livemoore: (⚰ 41)


[personal profile] livemoore 2017-07-21 04:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Liv studies him for a minute, eyes moving over his face. He's not one of them, but he definitely doesn't look...alive. ]

But you're...

[ How to put this delicately. ]

Do you have a heartbeat?

[ There, good job, Liv. ]

[It's been a, uh, harrowing time for Sans. The zombies don't come after him, so surviving hasn't been the issue, but there's just...a whole lot of mayhem and a whole lot of death, and a whole lot of people who don't deserve what's happening. He's mostly just been on the roofs, watching, because that's what he does.]

[Right now he's in the streets, though, ostensibly making his way back toward where Wirt left Greg to check on the kid. There's three zombies that he can see, including this one. It doesn't even take a second glance to notice that this one's acting a bit different. And Sans isn't an expert on any of this, but he's gonna take that to mean that this poor asshole just turned or something. For all he knows, there's a few minutes of clarity and awareness while your body starts hunting for brains without your say-so. Which is horrifying.]

[So he's gonna deal with it the best way he knows how--with humor.]

lookin' like death cooled over, champ. well, don't let me decay you from, uh, whatever sorta undead stuff you're gettin' up to.

[He's just gonna scoot on by this one and continue on his merry way.]

[personal profile] punful 2017-07-24 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
[He slows when the zombie turns toward him, because he catches a certain awareness behind the gaze immediately. Like maybe this guy hasn't fully turned yet.]

[Then he stops dead when the zombie actually speaks.]

[He wonders for a second if maybe he's just hearing things, but Sans isn't really the sort to just hear things. It requires a sort of wishful thinking that he just really isn't capable of anymore.]'re still in there, huh?

[He glances over at the other two zombies to see if they're reacting to either of them, but they're obviously not. They seem to have a cursory interest in the noise, but they're not making much of an effort to come Sans's way.]

[Here he really thought he'd gotten used to the idea of zombies. Could have even called himself genre savvy.]

well that's, uh. different.

[And there's a massive joke in here somewhere, if he can parse it. A zombie who's supposed to be dead, but isn't. A skeleton who you'd also think is supposed to be dead, but isn't on both counts. It's like the start of one of those "walks into a bar" jokes.]
punful: (sansye shrug)


[personal profile] punful 2017-07-31 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
[The zombie nods. It--he--heard Sans, understood, and responded. That's not just something you could chalk up to a basic stimulus-response thing. That implies not just sentience, but sapience.]

[Sans abruptly decides to stop questioning it. This guy is a zombie, or at least looks like one, but he's sapient. It could be for any number of reasons that Sans doesn't have time to think about. The point is, he's talking to a person.]

[His stance relaxes even more.]


[No, it would be weird, right? Zombies are still human to some degree, and humans--in his experience--all have some kind of universal understanding of what a skeleton is supposed to mean. Moreso than what a zombie is supposed to mean, apparently.]

yeah, 'tween you and me, we're just, uh...spitting in the face of the whole concept of death, huh?

[They could form a band. The Not Deads.]

you might wanna find somewhere to hide. the other zombies don't seem to care, but there's plenty of regular living folks around. probably not gonna stop to find out if you're still a person or not.

[personal profile] zackthekiller 2017-07-18 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
[Zack's not exactly in the mood to be mowing down hordes and hordes of zombies after the clusterfuck yesterday, but if it's just one measly little zombie...]

[He readies his scythe, grinning with a murderous glint in his eyes as he chuckles to himself. He doesn't particularly care if the zombie hears him. It's just one zombie. What damage can it do to an experienced killer?]

Heh heh heh... Looks like I missed one...

[He isn't moving.]

[He isn't lying down, either. He's just staring with those literal dead eyes.]

[Zack wants to kill the zombie. He really does. However, that dead expression and the fact that this thing isn't really attacking... It's ruining it for him.]

Well? You gonna come over here and try to bite me? I'm right here, you know!
zackthekiller: (OH SHIT)

[Bill flicks through the different communication channels with rapid-precision, noting which users are still alive and active and which poor saps either dropped their cameras or met an untimely end.]


[And then he comes across this channel. It looks like an of the other 'dead' streams except this one particular individual keeps coming into view. Almost like it.. belongs to him? NAH. Bill's temporarily human face scrunches with annoyance as R blocks a sign that will better help him identify the location.]

ghflskhu_ph: (Human!PANIC)

[personal profile] ghflskhu_ph 2017-07-30 02:24 pm (UTC)(link)
"I SAID--"

[Bill halts halfway with a blink. Did.. Did he just hear it speaK??? Up close this guy looks even more cold and clammy, there shouldn't be any vocal chords left in that thing. It wouldn't be unheard of for a half-rotted human to still have some cognitive centers, and really this is Wonderland, it's not as though things had to follow any rationality. Still, it's enough to throw the triangle momentarily offtrack, his mouth remains agape until his voice, much softer and hesitant, tries to regain some of its forced bravado.]

"..SAID, UH... W-whyyyyyy don't you GET IN THE SHOT a little BETTER?... And say that AGAIN?"
ghflskhu_ph: (▲ Bow tie tweak)

[personal profile] ghflskhu_ph 2017-07-31 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[Familiar or not, Bill has carefully cultivated a reputation as one who can't be ignored; if R didn't recognize the device, chances are Bill would find someway to draw his attention to it through sheer annoyance alone. Bill blinks back.]


[Huh. How very wonderfully, delightfully odd. Bill tilts his head, perplexed. There are actual ghost and skeleton monsters here, an empty skull didn't always translate to an empty headspace this shouldn't be such a milestone and yet... Can he even read this guy's mind? Well, in his current flesh suit he can't. Would it even be a good idea to try later? There must be something holding this bag of bones together!]

"Yeah I'm TALKIN' to you. HOW ya FEELIN' there SHAMBLES? Ya got a name?"
