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.

[Hol was unsteady on his feet, but he eventually made his way over to the house numbered 501.]

... Is that so?
queen_of_swords: (nod)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 05:22 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. More than one person has suffered severe injuries. It looks like you've already gotten into your fare share of trouble. Are you okay?
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Cool Only Not)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
... I'll be fine.

[His eye narrowed in suspicion.]

What's in there?
queen_of_swords: (head tilted)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 05:36 am (UTC)(link)
Something that is very good at hiding. And milk.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Displeasure)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, wonderful. Milk.
queen_of_swords: (nod)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 05:39 am (UTC)(link)
Worse than the milk in the future Mayfield that we've come from.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Not what I meant)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
So lemme guess... yer gonna stand here all day... and try t' get people from goin' in?
queen_of_swords: (head tilted)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
As long as I can. I've got my share of wear and tear from the past couple days, too. If you really want to go inside, be my guest.

[And she'll step aside.]

But don't think I won't say I told you so. If you survive that is.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Curious and cautious)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 06:05 am (UTC)(link)
Been wonderin'... how far someone's got in there. ... and able t' make it back out...
queen_of_swords: (thinking)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 06:10 am (UTC)(link)
For me, it was the kitchen, but I had some help getting out.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Do not agree with you)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-05 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
Th' kitchen...

[He winced and tried to think clearly.]

I was thinkin'... if there's somethin' in there, that maybe I could... try t' see it.
queen_of_swords: (hmm)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-05 06:27 am (UTC)(link)
If we could get more people that have gone inside and survived. I think there are others.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Now Just a Minute)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-06 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
Perhaps... perhaps I will leave it alone...

Even if I could "see" inside... wouldn't do us a whole lotta good.
queen_of_swords: (hmm)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-06 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
[She nods.]

All the houses do seem the same, and even I am tempted to investigate again, but a team would be needed.

If I go back in, would you like to join my investigation group?
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Grumble)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-06 05:07 am (UTC)(link)
... and when would ya be goin' back in?
queen_of_swords: (grit teeth)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-06 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
I think I need to give myself another night's rest before I attempt another raid on the house.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Unamused.  Clearly.)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-06 05:16 am (UTC)(link)
... makes sense...

...

... until then, I'll be at the church... whenever you wish to try again...
queen_of_swords: (nod)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-06 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
The church feels strange, though. Be careful in there.
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Curious and cautious)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-06 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
I took note of the feelin' earlier... part of th' reason why I came out t' the houses instead...
queen_of_swords: (hmm)

[personal profile] queen_of_swords 2012-07-06 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
With the rifts ripping open in more places, I see our odds of being safe overnight narrowing significantly. Make a plan with someone to keep watch when you do sleep.
