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.

Hey. [Clover's approaching as casually as she can manage, looking around and with her hands firmly in her pockets.] Doin' business, are ya?

[... 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)

[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.
noluckduck: (I-- what--)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-06 07:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, then, she'll take that invitation, if Lucas doesn't mind.] ... Right. So you've got, uh... magic-- psychic powers, eh?
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-07 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
[Lucas nods.]

It's called PSI where I come from. Something about... psychokinetic or, I guess, just... psycho. There aren't many people who can use it.
noluckduck: (Write pretentious song lyrics for this)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-07 01:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I don't think that stuff's too common over where I come from, either.
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-08 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Lucas nods.]

Mm-hmm. Mostly, it's the monsters who do.
noluckduck: (I-- what--)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-08 01:16 pm (UTC)(link)
... Monsters, huh?

Guess we have those too...
a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-11 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
Psychic monsters? Gosh. Are you alright living where you are, then?
noluckduck: (That thing is a WHAT?!)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-11 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I dunno if they're psychic. Oh man, what if they are?
a_gentle_boy: (Thoughtful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-12 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
I guess you'd know if they tried to start you on fire with their minds.
noluckduck: (Yeah. No.)

[personal profile] noluckduck 2012-07-12 05:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Clover blinks.

And then her brows furrow and her eye twitches a little and she looks ever-so-slightly horrified.]
a_gentle_boy: (Shock)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-14 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
N-Not ...that that's... likely... aha. I, um, just have a very active imagination.
