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 notices that she isn't walking right and looks to her curiously.]

Miss, are you alright?
jumpsinline: (To look behind)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-05 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
Everyone always aaaasks that! [ Yoshika pouts a bit, her lips dried and cracked. ] I don't feel anything.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: DO NOT WANT)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-05 05:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, there goes that creepy factor again.]

A-Ah...then...I'll just...be on my way?
jumpsinline: (D-don't be so hasty!)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-05 05:49 am (UTC)(link)
Waaait! [ If he doesn't move, she will aim to put a hand on his shoulder. It's a rather... strong grip. ] Have you seen any fooood? [ She points at the demolished stand. ] Better than that.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: *gulp*)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-05 05:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Wow, that's a firm grip. NO! Don't be amazed by that now, Gakupo!]

N-No! I wish I had, though.
jumpsinline: (Did someone say "steak"?)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-05 06:41 am (UTC)(link)
Why don't you? [ Leaning in, sniffing. ] Did you eaaat it yourself? [ She is honestly not TRYING to be creepy. ]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: DO NOT WANT)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-05 07:13 am (UTC)(link)
N-No! I haven't had much since I got here four days ago... [Backing away! That's weird!]
jumpsinline: (It bears repeating)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-05 01:56 pm (UTC)(link)
That looong? [ Yoshika looks genuinely sad about this.

For a second.

Then she looks to some nearby drones. ]
They're not nooormal.

... do you think they're tasty?
jumpsinline: (Uncertain)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-06 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
[ Did she say it wrong? Maybe she should say it louder. ] I saaaaid: do you think they taste good? [ Pointing. ] They don't look like drooones to me.

[ Which means no one will miss them. Right? ]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: DO NOT WANT)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-06 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
WHY WOULD YOU EAT THEM?!
jumpsinline: (Something smells rotten)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-06 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
Because I'm huuungry. [ She pouts. ] And I can't catch the rats.

You can have some if you waaant.

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-06 01:24 am (UTC)(link)
That's cannibalism, which is pretty ILLEGAL! No way am I going to be that desperate! Besides, how do you know they don't have diseases?!
jumpsinline: (Pensive)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-06 01:37 am (UTC)(link)
What does this have to do with cans? [ She does not get those big words, dude.

That said, she looks downcast. The man had a point. ]
...Kyouko said I'm not allowed to die...

But if I can't eat, what do I dooo?
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: *gulp*)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-06 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
No, no, cannibalism means one species eating their own. Like humans eating humans.

[Oh, she looks pretty sad. There isn't much he can do, though.] Do you have any friends here?
jumpsinline: (Imperial Decree)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-06 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
Ohh. [ Pointing again. ] But they don't look normal and I'm not huuuman anyway.

[ Sort of. Yoshika nods. ] Hijiri is here, but I looost her.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: *gulp*)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-06 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
You're...not human? [No...is she a monster?!]

Wh-Why don't you find her? [And not think about eating him.]
jumpsinline: (Uncertain)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-06 01:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm a jiang shi! [ Said rather proudly. Though she does deflate. ] Or I'm suppoooosed to be. [ Stupid Mayfield making her all "alive" and stuff. ]

I tried looking. [ . . . ] But I can keeeep trying. I promised Kyouko I would.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: 。。。)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-07 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
What's that? [That doesn't sound Japanese at all.]

I'm sure your friend will turn up if you did!
jumpsinline: (I have a question!)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-08 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
What's what? [ Sorry, she gets confused easily. At least it's a temporary distraction from being ravenous? ]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: 。。。)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-08 07:27 am (UTC)(link)
A jiang shi? [Yes, distractions are good!]
jumpsinline: (Trust me)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-08 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Ohh.

[ Proudly. ] I'm a Chinese vampire! ... thoooough everyone else keeps calling me a zombie, so that works toooo.

[ Frowning. ] But that was befooore Mayfield.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: DO NOT WANT)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-08 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
WHAT?! [Covers his neck with his hands.]
jumpsinline: (It bears repeating)

[personal profile] jumpsinline 2012-07-09 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
I SAAAAID— [ And she will repeat all of what she just said, verbatim. Just... louder.

Maybe his ears are damaged. ]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: not amused B()

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-10 05:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tries to interrupt her.] That wasnt literal!

If you ever try to drink anyone dry, I'll slay you!
