welcome to mayfield: day 4



[This carnival seems to be getting less and less maintained by the day. Your nerves aren't the only thing fallen apart: what were previously holes in the sky have expanded to cracks. What parts of the sky that haven't fallen into that strange, warping nothingness are full of brown smog-like clouds.

The carnival itself has become filthy, with trash and grease spots littered everywhere. The walls of the tents, wooden stands, and houses seem to be slightly melted, for lack of a better term. The holes of corrupted nothingness aren't confined to the sky anymore: pockets of nothing litter the carnival, shifting tears in the fabric of reality that hurt your eyes to look at.

A faint buzzing noise fills the air, making it difficult to concentrate. If you listen long enough, it starts to sound like voices. For your own sake, it's probably best not to listen to what they have to say.

You're also not alone here anymore, for those of you operating under the assumption that you ever really were. If you've been missing the friendly drones of Mayfield, fear no more, because scattered throughout the carnival are a few drone families seeing the sights, riding the rides and playing the games. Curiously, unlike the drones back home, these ones don't seem to notice you at all, acting as if you're not even there.

Also curiously: their features are warped nearly beyond recognition. Some are missing limbs or facial features; others appear to have had those features scrambled by Picasso's paintbrush, with mouths on their scalps or teeth on their fingers. Still other drones appear to be fused together at the wrist, or waist, or face. None of them seem to be any more aware of their deformity than they are of you.

...and yet, somehow, you can't shake the feeling that when you're not looking at them, they're looking at you.

New here? That's alright; your missing friends have had plenty of time to get acquainted, and they'll be happy to show you around. Just watch your step, because some of these old rides need some maintenance...]


OOC: If your character damages or affects the carnival or town in a noticeable and normally permanent way, please comment here.

[He knew now to avoid the ferris wheel... he also now knew to avoid suspicious sounding foot steps. He was avoiding the water... and found the idea of eating rats rather vulgar. So he's come back to the funhouse to inspect it. He's rather hesitant of going inside by himself.]

(It's been a slight hobby of Kreutzer's to visit the funhouse at least once a day, even if she didn't like it very much. She had to constantly hug her dolls whenever she got close, but at least that was enough to keep her moving.)

I suppose this is the calmer choice of the available areas of the carnival, isn't it?
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Not Pleased)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 02:16 pm (UTC)(link)
... I suppose so...

To think a funhouse could bring so many people to a place filled with suffering...it's insulting. This entire place is insulting.

[She wasn't much of an investigator, but Caroline was determined to not just sit on her hands and wait for something to happen.

The hall of mirrors is a challenge, but that stupid clown keychain in her pocket keeps getting warmer if she heads in a certain direction . . . ]


Anyone else in here? Not monsters or drones, you guys can stay where you are.

[Kono just came out of the funhouse, having apparently arrived late to whatever was going on. Clearly the intelligent thing to do is to go back into the funhouse to figure out how she got that turned around...

She hears Caroline calling, and decides to follow it and answer.]


Hello?
fifthtimearound: (huh?)

Re: FUNHOUSE

[personal profile] fifthtimearound 2012-07-05 03:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Monsters and axe murders don't yell back 'hello', right? Caroline hears a voice reply and starts heading toward it. Just in case it's something horrible, she's ready to throw up a shield and run for cover.]

Over here!

. . . Marco?

[Hopefully this is someone that knows how to play Marco Polo.]
surf_n_makai: (Well...)

Re: FUNHOUSE

[personal profile] surf_n_makai 2012-07-05 03:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kono can't help the small smile on her face - that's one way to find each other. She follows the sound, coming around a corner and almost running right smack into Caroline.]

Polo?

[If you're approaching the funhouse, you'll see Kono out front, obviously a new arrival. She looks confused as hell, and her eyes are scanning the carnival around her, eyes wide.

She might stop you and ask what the hell is going on, or if you're in really rough shape she might offer to help you.]
noluckduck: (TRIPPING /BALLS/)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-05 03:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Christ, there's still more people comin'?

[Your neighbour's been here for a few days, Kono. The front of her shirt is stained with blood.]
surf_n_makai: (Worried)

[personal profile] surf_n_makai 2012-07-05 04:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh my God, Clover, are you ok? [The blood's the first thing she's noticed.
noluckduck: (I-- what--)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-05 06:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Eh, as okay as I can be- [She looks down at her shirt, and the dull pain from the other day's wound comes back. At least it's not as bad as the actual fresh wound was.] If ya mean this, I'm good now.
hairflyingheartpounding: (Is it dead?)

[personal profile] hairflyingheartpounding 2012-07-05 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[For the moment, Rapunzel is just standing outside of the funhouse, staring up at it. Part of her wants to go in... In hopes it can take her home. But... She's so scared to go back in there, from the memory of what she saw in the mirror to the possibility that she could end up somewhere worse.]

...I wish I knew what to do.
truffulacide: (well i'm calling it quits)

[personal profile] truffulacide 2012-07-05 04:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[Once-ler is standing off to the side, quietly. he doesn't look up when she speaks but his answer is almost immediate.]

Same. The way I see it is if someone found a way back, we'd know it by now.

[have they even seen anyone go back in there? sure doesn't seem like it.]
hairflyingheartpounding: (Mother...)

[personal profile] hairflyingheartpounding 2012-07-07 07:01 pm (UTC)(link)
You're probably right. Ciel says being stuck her probably won't last, but...

I'm so scared. And I just... Don't know what to do. I don't care about getting information anymore. I want to go back home. God, it's spooky there and horrible things happen and I never chose to be there, but it's so much better than this.

Main Area

[personal profile] priceofmagic 2012-07-06 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
[ Deciding that there was no point in remaining in the carnival, mostly because being ignored by the drones is driving her a few shades of crazy, Satou set off into the funhouse with her last bottle of water. She's not exactly armed with any real weapon aside from a kitchen knife from home, but is trying to stay focused and ready to fire magic shots if it comes to that. ]

Ah, good. No more mirrors... Those were quite annoying. [ She pauses in the main area, deciding to take a few seconds to recollect her nerves. Mirrors should not be so scary and she should not be feeling so nervous, she reminds herself. ] Now how do I get back to the 'other side'? Should I shoot this place up until it lets me out?

cucumbers: (Kappa Ni Tori)

I know you kept saying to take my time but still this is laate ; A;

[personal profile] cucumbers 2012-07-08 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
[ All kappa should know that whenever a human goes into a dark and suspicious place alone, you should immediately give chase. In order to better protect the human, of course! Curiosity does not enter into it!

At least that's what Nitori tells herself as she begins to follow Satou into the funhouse. The kappa knows how to be sneaky, and so far her efforts to follow Satou without the girl ever noticing has worked. Satou pauses in the main area, a section that Nitori hasn't personally visited. Nitori sticks to a wall, not far from the entrance to the main hall. She peers at Satou curiously.

Nitori's eyes widen as she listens.. There was nothing truly wrong with what Satou was saying, it was only to be expected, but the way she was saying it made Nitori gulp and step away from the edge of the entrance. Nitori conjures a quick plan in order to leave the fun house without Satou noticing.

She immediately ruins this foolproof plan by crunching on a piece of glass. It doesn't hurt Nitori, but it sure as heck makes noise.
]
priceofmagic: (holy moly whoa!)

It's fine ;u;

[personal profile] priceofmagic 2012-07-08 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
Hm?

[ Satou turns swiftly in the direction of the sound, palm held out and half sphere-like collections of pink magic gathered around her and hanging in the air. She looks at Nitori with glowing eyes, the look of a witch about to shoot, but all of her offensive magic dissolves the instant that she recognizes the kappa. ]

Nitori-chan! Oh goodness, are you okay? However did you get here? [ Snap. Just like that, Satou's 'real' (fake) personality snaps back into place and she crosses the main area carefully to reach the other girl. ] Thank goodness you are not hurt. You're not, right?
cucumbers: (?)

[personal profile] cucumbers 2012-07-11 05:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ Nitori hesitates for a very long moment. She stares at Satou, somewhat shocked by her sudden change. And only a minute ago her eyes were glowing. It was frightening to say the least, but this was Satou! This must be the other world getting the best of Satou. It must be! ]

I-I'm fine! [ She tilts her head down in embarrassment. ] I only stepped on the glass. My boots are hard enough so that I won't get hurt! But -- Satou-san, what are you doing here?

I've had enough of this place! I'm getting out of here!

Flanked by his loyal Egg Pawns, Eggman charged into the fun house, letting his hunger and thirst fuel his annoyance into leaving this place. He's going to brave the hall of (shattered) mirrors and push his way deeper.]

This ends here and now, city!

(This place...this place was the start of it all. Thanks to a few damn slides, trap doors, mirrors and extra turns, quite a group was forced here, dying slowly for the amusement of those damned people in charge...and quite possibly, Richard. The name was enough to anger her greatly. She brought a majority of the blame to whoever used that name during the broadcast. That person, even if it was Richard himself, made all of this happen, and Kreutzer was just about done playing games.

That's why she's also raining her wrath down on the funhouse. Kreutzer and her dolls were shooting at the exterior of the funhouse with a great number of magical bullets.
)

There is no going back through there. It is only the town's trophy, honoring yet another victory over their captives. Well how's this for your victory?!
genkibot: (...I can't access the internet?)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-09 08:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma checks in the Funhouse every once and awhile, and happens to be doing so when it hears a lot of noise outside.

...Is that fire?]

Eh? What's going on out there?
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-09 03:45 pm (UTC)(link)
(Why yes, Kreutzer and her dolls are shooting at the funhouse with various magical bullets, actual bullets, little missiles and lasers.)

I want to destroy the funhouse. It serves no purpose other than to taunt us; it's a one-way portal to this dimension and a mark for another of Mayfield's victories over us. It's worthless to me...
genkibot: (Let me just catch my breath....)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-17 05:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma will just move out of the way of any stray projectiles and try to get out of the building now.]

It might not necessarily be a one way portal! It might just be closed at the moment. People have been showing up through here, so maybe if we wait for someone new to appear, we can see if we can go back to Mayfield.
