Because every fandom needs a zombie apocalypse au, amirite?
All over the world, people are dying. And - whether the result of some horrid disease or cruel, black magic - they are returning to life, but not as they once were. At MiM dire request, The Guardians follow their soul duty - to protect the children of the world. But the numbers of hordes are increasing every minute, and their powers are slowly draining. Pitch’s powers drastically fluctuate - people’s fear continually rising as they flee from their home and cities, but simultaneously dropping as they are turned one by one.
The spirits watch in horror as their world slowly falls to ruin and death.
And are the Guardians - with their magical powers and supposedly immortal lives - immune to whatever infects the people of the world?
(+ Bonus if they have a serious emotional reaction to seeing dead children. Jack with Jaime? Bunny with Sophie? A tiny, baby zombie?) (++ Extra bonus if the story DOESN’T end happily ever after mwahaha. But, at the same time, I wouldn’t object to it ending happy - or as happy as it can possibly be.)
Sandy’s tasked with watching over an unstable Pitch; Pitch tells him what he thinks of the zombie apocalypse, and an unusual plan is suggested. No bonuses.
