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.

[Kariya stares up uncomfortably at the fog, straining his eyes to try to see through it. He also spends a bit of time just walking around the surrounding grounds, looking from a distance at the tears and holes in reality.]

I really hope I'm right about this place.
a_gentle_boy: (Contemplative)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-06 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
[A boy can be found nearby behaving similarly, simply staring up at the sky. Smog, holes, thick fog... What was happening to this place?]

...'Reality programming'...

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-06 06:19 pm (UTC)(link)
What do you think is going to happen to this place?
a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-06 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas turns to the man, a little surprised.]

I think... it's all going to break down soon. Maybe we'll go with it. ...But we'll wake up back in Mayfield when it does.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
You think so too, huh?

[Kariya smiles a little.]
a_gentle_boy: (Thoughtful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-08 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
[Lucas nods.]

We've never not returned to Mayfield. I don't know if that's something to be thankful for not, eheh...

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-08 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
I have people waiting for me there. Right now, going back to Mayfield is all I want.

[April walks over to stand next to him, also looking up at the fog.]

... I guess for now all we can do is wait.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-06 06:21 pm (UTC)(link)
There doesn't seem to be any other way out, so you're probably right.
technologic: (❦ And I started staring)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-06 06:43 pm (UTC)(link)
For now, we should probably avoid the holes... And the drones too. [She casts a wary look at some nearby that are fused at the waist and missing some limbs.]

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-06 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
That's probably for the best. The drones don't look hostile, just... disturbing.
technologic: (❦ Is burning to the ground)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-06 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
And we don't know if they'll become hostile or not. With how much this place is falling apart, I wouldn't be surprised...

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-06 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
We'd better be prepared for it if this lasts too much longer.
technologic: (❦ And I started staring)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-06 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, you're right... Though with all these holes, I'm not sure if this place can last much longer.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-06 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Let's hope it spits us out somewhere safe, then, instead of just collapsing in on us.
technologic: (❦ Is burning to the ground)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-07 01:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Or we get erased completely thanks to... whatever is in those cracks. [She sighs quietly, rubbing her forehead.]

... How have you been holding up?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 02:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't talk like that. We have to keep hoping for the best.

...I'm fine, I guess.
technologic: (❦ And I started staring)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-07 02:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I know, I know, sorry... But no matter what happens, we probably won't be stuck here for much longer.

... That's good. I, ah, guess I kinda worry, with all this stuff going on...

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 02:53 pm (UTC)(link)
I think anyone would worry in a situation like this.
technologic: (❦ Is burning to the ground)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-07 03:41 pm (UTC)(link)
You're right about that. I guess there's just the fear of waking up the next day and finding out a friend got hurt or worse.

[She sighs and shakes her head.] But dwelling over that isn't gonna help, huh?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 03:43 pm (UTC)(link)
We just have to do the best we can right now.
technologic: (❦ Who're waving goodbye)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-07 08:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Right! [She gives a few nods.]

We just have to keep going and we'll be out of here soon. [And then her voice becomes quiet as she mumbles to herself.] ... I hope Bernie is alright...
technologic: (❦ Of the end of the world)

[personal profile] technologic 2012-07-07 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, ah... [She looks a bit embarrassed now.] M-my dog... He's stuck with the drones in the house back in Mayfield, s-so I'm hoping they looked after him...

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-07 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh.

[He smiles a little at that.]

I'm sure he's all right.
