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.

(Four's been four long, agonizing days. People are dying, bleeding, sometimes keeping themselves together in the most literal way possible...and for what? Because a stupid carnival came to town and a voice over the radio told them it was a good idea. Kreutzer was tired, hungry, sick...her patience had just about enough.)

Why are we even here? What's the point of all of this madness? Another misdirection so everyone can bleed a little more? It's just another step, another push towards breaking us to insanity? I will not fall for that...I will not stand for this any longer!

(She glares at the Ferris Wheel, then shouts towards the sky.)

Richard! Richard you son of a bitch, I hope you're happy! You made everyone believe there was a way out and dragged them to their deaths! I curse your name and your foul attempts to drive us to madness! Damn you and this wretched dimension! Hide in your god forsaken holes all you want; I'll make them and the rest of this place your grave!

(And now anyone in the carnival will probably notice a very loud explosion. Kreutzer aimed one of her kamikaze dolls for the base of the ferris wheel and seems to be directly assaulting it with her danmaku magic. Clearly, she's pissed.)

[Oh, hey...explosions. Hajime was on his way over to 501 for an exploratory run because he's getting pretty well fed up with this place himself. But the sound of the explosion gets his attention before he can head on over there...

Don't mind him. He's just going to stand and watch in silent approval.]

(That's cool; she's much too busy being angry to notice. Even if she did, she really wouldn't care. Kreutzer had more important things to worry about.)

We're not good enough to be considered pawns, are we? Playthings too strong a word? Pets? Just test subjects on a good day!

(A concession stand right over there? Completely bombarded with energy bullets from her hands. Any and every damn she could give just got made into cheese. She's having her dolls help out in the destruction whenever they can.)
chalicejoker: (Chalice - Bow)


[personal profile] chalicejoker 2012-07-08 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hajime would be more inclined to call her out on that test subject thing were it not for the fact that he really found himself agreeing with her sentiments. He was also wondering when the whole danmaku thing had happened. That was new.]

So you can fight for yourself. It's about time.

[Not that he really thinks she's paying any attention to him. He's holding his bow in a rather relaxed position now, but if she's lost it enough to attack him just because he's there, he'll be ready.]

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-08 09:14 pm (UTC)(link)
(She hasn't lost that much of herself just yet. She's keeping her fire concentrated on the stands, rides and generally away from everyone else trapped there. Even as she glances at Hajime, she's keeping her shots away from him.)

Push has come to shove, Hajime. I grow tired of playing by their rules; this all started because of that transmission...and this carnival coming to town. I say destroy what came with all of these problems!

(Which means more shots going around the general area. Again, she's taking care to leave Hajime out of it, but given how angry she is, that might not last long.)

[Really, he's tempted to join in. But given the state of his bow and lack of Rouse Cards, joining in properly would mean Joker...and as badly as he wants to see this world ended, he's refusing to go that far. She might be able to distinguish between friend and foe. He wouldn't.]

Works for me. They need to learn they can't just toss us around like this and expect us to take it.

[He jerks his head towards the houses.]

While you take care of that, I'm going to see if I can get to the bottom of what's in 501.

(She'll nod quickly before proceeding with her attack on the carnival itself. This place really was getting her and it sure felt great to get back at it.)

Be careful, Hajime; that house is capable of more than you think.

(That place got to poor Chell and Kreutzer is still upset about that. Here's hoping he can survive...)

[personal profile] chalicejoker 2012-07-08 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[He hefts the bow.]

I'm ready for a fight, at least...and it's impossible to kill an Undead. I'll manage.

[Not like he really knows how this place will treat an Undead given how everything else is screwed up...but it's worth a shot.]

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-08 11:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Remember that this place will do everything it can to stop you. It took away your undead body when you arrived, remember? It might do that again just to be safe.

(A thought that effected Kreutzer as well. If they took away all of her powers, she'd be royally screwed. Might as well put them to use while she still could.)
chalicejoker: (Chalice - Suit)


[personal profile] chalicejoker 2012-07-08 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
If that happens, I'll manage. I've still got experience, and battling Undead tends to prepare one for...oddities.

[Really, on some level he'd be relieved if they took away his Undead body again. Reality falling apart seems like just the sort of thing that might spur Joker into acting. Just one more reason for him to act fast.]

emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Don't start with me)

[Hol Horse was slowly scouting the area, when he took notice of the sudden attacks on the ferris wheel. Glancing to the left, and over to the right, he decided to investigate. Watching someone... no, he recognized her from the fun house... Hol staggered over. Keeping a safe enough distance, he stared. There was a small amount of rage that began to boil within his frame.

It was either here, or the house labeled 501... Gritting his teeth, he summoned his Stand.
Aim was taken at the base of the ferris wheel, but he couldn't find the urge to pull the trigger.

To anyone else, it looked like he was simply pointing ahead at nothing ...

(Kreutzer's not a girl who normally got angry. She's pretty calm 85-90% of the time, but here? In this place where there's really no point but to see how long it takes for everyone to die horribly, whether by the town's influence or through starvation? That 10-15% was definitely showing.)

How's this for your show, Richard?! Are you enjoying yourself, Richard?! Is this enough fire for you? Enough blood to sate your craving?

(And with a swing of her arms, more magical bolts fly for the ferris wheel.)

No one should've listened to that broadcast. It's all a damn lie, isn't it? Just an excuse to pull people into your cages and do whatever you wish to them?! To hell with you! And to hell with this entire dimension!

(Yup, more concentrated blasts at the ride. And there's a lot of them.)
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Aim and Shoot)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-08 09:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hol decided that with all the other explosions caused by the other... now was a good as time as any to start firing. The bullets didn't seem to stop firing... each time a bullet struck in a different spot and yet, he never changed his aim.]
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-08 10:14 pm (UTC)(link)
(Oh goodie, firepower that wasn't her own? Looks like Kreutzer just might've enabled someone into partaking...well if she's going to wreck everything, then maybe she might as well let others do the same. She was certain they were just as frustrated about this place as she was.)

That's quite a shot you have. It serves you well, I see!

(She'd love to talk, but rage comes first. Otherwise, bullets everywhere and her shots aren't good for you health if they hit you. She's keeping them concentrated,at least.)
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Hand Gun)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-09 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
[He didn't bother replying. Instead, he was rather focused on firing his small onslaught of bullets.]
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-09 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
(Which was completely fine with Kreutzer. Instead of continuing the conversation, she simply nods and continues her onslaught. Nothing like blowing things up to help you feel better.)
emperor_cowboy: (Hol - Whoops)

[personal profile] emperor_cowboy 2012-07-09 05:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Almost immediately as he began firing... Hol decided that he wasn't ready to find out what would happen should something happen. He finally recalled the Stand and slowly started to back up.]
genkibot: (I see you!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-09 08:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Tachikoma has come at the sound of explosions and finds Kreutzer making things explode.]

Ah! Miss Kreutzer! What are you doing?!
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-09 03:40 pm (UTC)(link)
(For the moment, Kreutzer's attack softens, not firing with as much intensity to respond to the spider tank.)

I'm putting an end to this, Tachi. There's nothing here but meaningless death and suffering; it's all been a cunning lie to lure everyone into a false sense of security and pick away at us while we're vulnerable. There is no escape, no clues or true exit. I doubt there's even a real Richard Grey at this point; it's all lies...
genkibot: (....but I don't have any ears.)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-07-17 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
But destroying things randomly won't stop any of that! In fact, random destruction might harm innocent bystanders who might be walking by! I'm sure we'll find a way out if keep working at it. Even the worse of Mayfield's traps usually bring everyone back to the town proper eventually!
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-07-19 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm trying not to hit bystanders...but it's good to know accidents won't be permanent.

(Trying is the keyword here. She hasn't had any complaints so far...)

It still has to be destroyed...
genkibot: (Let me just catch my breath....)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-08-10 05:55 pm (UTC)(link)
That's not necessarily true! Destroying things like this is just wasting energy you could be using to try and find a way out!
suicidoll: (Default)

[personal profile] suicidoll 2012-08-12 08:48 am (UTC)(link)
There is no way out...none that will allow us to survive, at the least. We're not meant to survive here...
genkibot: (Things are real!)

[personal profile] genkibot 2012-08-16 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
Even if we're not meant to, that doesn't mean we can! We can and will escape! We just need to work together! Please, calm down!

It won't be that simple,'s never that simple!

(She hurls a few more bullets at the Ferris Wheel, but suddenly stops and holds her hand close to her least she stopped shooting for now.)
