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.

[The majority of Day 3 had been spent sleeping off the wounds of Day 2. His psychic powers were mentally draining, after all, and while a magic cake or pudding or two would have fixed the problem nicely, there was precious little food to be found here. The amount of PSI he had exerted in that single day was just too much.

Lucas is ravenous when he awakes. He has a few cookies left in his food supply, but even those don't help very much.

...His hunger is forgotten the moment he steps out of the church and glances at the sky.

Twenty minutes later, those residents who had survived the perils of Westport and who remained alive up to this point may find a vaguely familiar sight: a sign etched on the ground announcing 'HEALING' and a blonde boy half-dozing on the steps of a church.]

[Sits down next to him.]

How are ya' feeling?
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
[Lucas yawns a little as he becomes more alert.]

Mm... Hungry. Tired. Thirsty. Just like everyone else, probably. I'm out of fresh water and food.

Do you need any healing, Miss Harley?
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: My BFF)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-07-06 06:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah, I'm alright. Managed to avoid anything too bad. Just hungry and thirsty, things like that.

You want to take a nap? I can keep watch an' wake you up if anyone comes looking for healing.

truffulacide: (my daddy spent 10 years on the outside)

[personal profile] truffulacide 2012-07-05 05:18 am (UTC)(link)
[he knows who you are. it'd be pretty hard to forget about the kid who saved his life.

if Lucas is astute, he'll hear the distinct sound of Once-ler's footsteps against the stairs early enough. he moves quietly, scarcely making a sound until he moves to plop down beside the boy, stretching his gangly legs out on the marble in front of him.

old blood still soaks one of his pant legs. he balances his axe on top of his knees, flinching slightly when it rubs against his injured one.]


Hey.
a_gentle_boy: (Embarrassment)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 05:28 am (UTC)(link)
[The best way to conserve his energy was to doze off, as far as he was concerned. Still, Lucas wasn't completely at ease here - there was always the danger of more... clown creatures popping up out of the blue, and so it is that he hears the footsteps the moment they land on the stairs.

He'll jerk slightly to full attention; the man, of course, is familiar to him as well.]


Hi.

[Lucas scootches over a little to the side.]

Have you run into any more trouble?

[...Lucas ;;

Let him doze in peace! Ciel did bring a blanket with her. It's been passed around a bit throughout all that's been going on here, but it's still clean, and more importantly, comfy and keeps warm.

She'll carefully drop it around his shoulder. It won't wake him, hopefully...? The boy looks like he's been through a lot. A well-deserved rest would more than just be in order, if only he would allow himself to get some.]
a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas has a job to do! And he is too wary of killer clowns popping out of nowhere to really be able to sleep. He comes to with a start when he feels something about his shoulders.

The possibility of someone trying to suffocate him is dismissed when he glances up and sees the person standing above him.]


A-Ah...

Miss Ciel. I didn't know you were here, too.
expiatrice: († just as frail and deeply pitiful)

[personal profile] expiatrice 2012-07-05 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[She gives a faint nod and a small and sheepish smile in response. Funny things how end up, huh? She does take note of his reaction upon immediately waking up though; his nerves must be really wired, huh...

Wordlessly, she hands him a note:


You should try to get some rest, Lucas. I can take over for you in the meanwhile, how about that?

Not being able to talk is troublesome, but apart from that, this place hasn't taken her healing away. She's been careful to conserve her strength, and with her naturally large mana tank, she should be more than capable of standing in for him for more than just a bit.]

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-05 12:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[She's dirty and haunted looking, and smells just about as bad as ever... but as far as first-day residents go, Natalie's looking mostly okay. She comes up to Lucas quietly, tilts her head, and speaks softly.]

...how are you faring?
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 02:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas glances up with a weary smile. He pats the seats beside him to motion for her to take a seat.]

I'm OK. Not any worse than anyone else.

How are you, Miss Natalie?
spitefulvitae: (Hmmph lovely)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-07 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Natalie eyes the steps, eyes Lucas, and then quietly shakes her head. She still doesn't quite dare test the kinds of wards Ciel has left.

But she puts on a weary smile of her own. She doesn't want to hurt the boy's feelings.]


I think this place is finally starting to get to me a little. Just a little.

[personal profile] perfectsymmetry 2012-07-05 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[At one point when Lucas rouses from dozing off, he'll find he has company. Crowe is sitting there, leaned against the nearby wall, asleep. Going on his fourth day with almost no food or water clearly shows on him. He looks like hell.]
a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas resists the urge to call Crowe's name when he notices him. The older boy was sound asleep... It was better to let him rest for a bit.

Crowe looked like he'd been through some difficulties. Lucas raises a hand and gently places it on his friend's shoulder, releasing a stream of PSI. Refresh didn't do much to assuage hunger or thirst, but it could stave off exhaustion, if only briefly.]
perfectsymmetry: (shy look)

[personal profile] perfectsymmetry 2012-07-05 03:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[After a moment, Crowe's eyes flutter open, and he looks around. Seeing Lucas, he realizes what just happened, and he gives him a slight smile.]

A-ah, thanks. I didn't want to disturb you...

[She steps out of the church, shaky herself and not wanting to venture very far from the safe haven. But the boy on the steps with his sign catches her attention and she steps down slowly. Her arm might be broken and in a sling but that isn't why she's here and she will push away his attention if he asks]

Dear--are you hungry? I have a little water left and a bit of food. You need some to keep your strength up. [She settles beside him and digs a few things out of her bag.]
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas rouses himself enough to shake his head. His expression is weary, but he seems to be at ease.]

Thanks, miss. But it's alright - Please, save it for someone who's really bad off. I'm sure there are a lot of people who've been hurt.
willbeurprincess: (STARE shock)

[personal profile] willbeurprincess 2012-07-06 10:49 pm (UTC)(link)
But--[She kneels beside him and holds out the water at least. It's just half full though] You look like you need it as much as anyone.

[... But, as much as she would like to pretend to just be cool and aloof, she feels like she can't just ignore what the boy did for her. It wouldn't be right.] Uh... Thanks. For the other day.
a_gentle_boy: (Ready)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-05 10:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas suppresses a quiet laugh at Clover's attempt to be nonchalant. He'll scootch over a little in case she wants to sit down.]

It's alright. You don't have to thank me.

Healing people when they're hurt... It's what I do. It's what my PSI is for. If I didn't use my powers to help others, I'd be taking their lives almost the same as if I killed them.

And when she speaks it almost sounds empathetic. Almost concerned.]

[WHY HI THERE LUCAS! Henry has awakened as well, only to come outside of the church, because man, it's starting to feel scary. He see's Lucas sitting on the steps looking rather sleepy. He's also noticing the very loud grumbles coming from the boy's stomach.

Now Henry has been pretty well nourished these passed few days. Why? Packing a ton of food helps. Rationing is even better. So he still has enough to share.

Bending down beside Lucas, he pulls out a small bag of chips, a chocolate bar and a drink box and extends them out to Lucas.]

Here, you need to eat.
a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-06 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
[What grumbles those are um gurgles of joy Lucas is practicing an ancient meditation technique. He glances up as he feels someone sitting down beside him.]

Oh, Henry...

N-No, it's really OK. You should save it for yourself - or for someone who's hurt or starving. ...Thank you, though.
