Room 508, Tuesday Afternoon
Kathy was hunched over her computer, muttering to herself. "Raven, what the hell? Don't wander off! No, get back--Dante, how do you have dysentery? Again?! No, I am not stopping this car, there are too many--Dammit, Ringo, how did you break your arm?! Were you AT-ing during the zom--DANTE YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DIE, YOU JERK! Anders, you're a goddamn magic-user, heal somebody! OH MY GOD, DON'T MAKE ME TURN THIS CAR AROUND AND DRIVE BACK TO THE NUKES, SO HELP ME!" A moment of quiet and then, "Hey! Somebody stole my last battery!"

Someone had discovered Organ Trail on Facebook. And had foolishly decided to play using the names of her friends. And had nearly decided to give up on this carful of people and try again. Surely Kira and Ezra would be more sensible during the zombie apocalypse.

"Raven! I said not to wander off! Great! Now you're dead and I have to start over!" Kathy didn't believe in leaving anyone behind. Even in the pixelated apocalypse.

[Open! Link to the conversation with Dante]

There was a lot of yelling coming from Kathy's room. Exasperated-type yelling.

And, wait, was that Ringo's name?

Frowning, she walked down the hall and knocked tentatively at Kathy's doorframe. "Um, is something wrong?"

"It wouldn't be if you'd stop breaking your darn limbs," Kathy grumbled. And then, about a second later, realized she was actually talking to Ringo, rather than just bitching out loud. "I mean...hi?"

Ringo blinked in surprise.

"Um." She looked down. "I haven't broken anything in, like, a year?"

"Have I?" Because this was Fandom, so it was probably worth checking.

"I don't know, have you Tuned recently?" Kathy sniffed, before beckoning Ringo over and pointing at her screen. Currently, there was a message about Anders eating some bad fruit and having a stomach ache, but Kathy figured Ringo would get the jist from that. "It's a road trip with four of your friends during the zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately--" and now she was turning a baleful glare onto Ringo, "--some of my friends have less sense than others."

Ringo flushed. But then she tried to straighten and look, you know, respectable. "I'm sure that I'm being very helpful." She pointed. "Besides, it looks like it's Anders who's not-helping."

So there, Kathy!

"At this exact moment," Kathy conceded. "But you've managed to get eaten by zombies twice and break, like, all of your limbs. Twice. No one else has broken one! It's like the game knows you!"

"I just told you I haven't broken anything in a year!" And she'd never actually admitted how often she'd broken things before that, so it was all conjecture on Kathy's part. Pure speculation!

"And what about you?" she demanded. Because clearly Kathy couldn't be much more help than anyone else. Well, maybe a little more help, since, you know, it was Kathy.

"I'm the driver," Kathy snorted. "I'm the one who searches for food and trades with people and decides when we rest and move on. Basically, without me, this whole thing falls apart."

Because, you know, she was the one playing the game. And zombie bites didn't count for her. She was actually a little disturbed how many times she'd been bitten while scavenging for food.

Instead, she raised a tragic wrist to her forehead. "You're all dreadfully lucky to have me."

"Mmhmm." Ringo quirked an eyebrow. "And how do we know that if we weren't stuck with you we wouldn't be running into so many zombies to bite us?" Huh, Kathy? Huh?

"Because the zombocalypse has swept through America and no where is safe," Kathy countered. "I got you away from Baltimore--" okay it was DC in the game, but whatever, close enough. "--before the nukes went off. You're welcome. Do you know when zombies are most likely to be agitated? I do."

Because she'd read the writeup at the beginning of the game. Low bar, Kathy.

"I could totally figure it out!" Ringo shot back.

She might even be able to do it before she got bit. So take that.

"You think so?" Kathy challenged. "Then here! Try it!" She killed her current game and pulled up another for Ringo to try, then carried her laptop from her desk over to her bed, so they could both sit and watch. "Let's see how good you are at hunting zombies and getting people to Oregon without any casualties."
