Megan had been calling them zombies from the get-go; after the third one, while Adam was busy puking his guts all over the sidewalk, she went around to all of them and hissed, "Listen, they're zombies, do you get it?"

When it all went to hell in Phoenix, the American Idol Top Ten were left with no entourage, no transportation, no communication: with only their own wits, their own determination, and the searing knowledge that, even if these were zombies, they were still real people, sick and hopeless and with people who loved them.

Go. Read. Weep.
Then tell Astolat you love her.
