day 5



[The fifth day doesn't dawn at all. In fact, the sky simply isn't there anymore; the only thing visible if you look up is pure black nothing. Most of the carnival itself is no longer visible, having been blanketed by thick white fog; any attempt to enter said fog will result in your body rapidly disintegrating. The street at least still seems to be intact, but with no way out and the fog slowly creeping in, who knows how long that'll last?

Luckily, it seems like the cavalry has finally arrived.]


(OOC: This marks the last day of the event! Anyone who has won a prize from Mayfield's carnival will be able to access both Mayfield and this area through the funhouse, and will be able to take one person with them on each trip they make. If your character is not rescued by the end of the day, they will be disintegrated by the fog and will wake up the next morning in Mayfield with the standard revival effects. You are free to comment in this post regardless of whether your character signed up for the event.)

[With the town disappearing into a fog of nothing, Slugger has gravitated toward the parts of it that are still standing. He's already accepted that he, too, will eventually be swallowed by the fog as well. Having given in to aimless wandering, he hears a voice that can only belong to one person.

And within seconds that one person will receive a sharp-but-not-so-hard punch on the back.]

Pokey! [He's relieved, angry and slightly terrified to see you here.] I told you not to come in here.
ceasetoexist: (Oh for fuck's sake!)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-10 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Pokey squawks as he gets hit in the flat of the back, looking behind him to see his best friend. His face is somewhere between a massive smile and a snarl of anger.]

Jerkface! C'mon!

[He doesn't give a crap about this place or looking around. He gets that it's probably dangerous and at the moment as far as he is concerned investigating can wait. You need to come home now, and he's just going to try and grab you by the wrist.]

We're going home! Now!
strike_you_out: (warrior face)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-10 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
[His wrist is easily snagged but he's slow to be led anywhere. It doesn't even register as strange to him that Pokey just referred to Mayfield as 'home'. He still can't believe you came in here looking for him like an idiot.]

How can we? We're stuck!
ceasetoexist: (Ehehehehe)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-10 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Pokey gives a groan and an exaggerated sigh as he reaches a hand behind him, fiddling with something he stuck in his belt loop.]

I know I"m awesome but even I can't just wander into the right place at the right time ALL the time.

We'll leave with this.

[And at that he pulls out a paddle ball.]
strike_you_out: (poker face)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-10 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Slugger glances at the paddle ball... then gives Pokey a long and unamused look.


Quit screwing with him, Pokey.]
ceasetoexist: (I make shit wanna fight about it?)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-10 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
I'm serious stupid.

If you won one of these dumb prizes you can come in here apparently and take a person out.
strike_you_out: (...)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-11 06:23 am (UTC)(link)
[He doesn't believe that at all but whatever, he'll just shrug and twist his lips to one side in a dubious expression.]

If you say so. Let's see it.
ceasetoexist: (All I hear is "blah blah blah")

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-12 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Pokey just flaps his lips in a mimicry of Slugger saying "let's see it". God. He'd love to just stand here jawing with you all day but it's getting kind of old Slugger.

He's just going to continue to grab Slugger's arm and start heading towards the rifts in the funhouse mirrors, intending every bit of the way to just walk through them.]
strike_you_out: (pique)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-13 04:24 am (UTC)(link)
[It's at this point he kind of wants to pop you in jaw, not for the stupid mocking but for stupidly coming in here in the first place. Slugger doesn't budge at the pulling, though the wheels of his skates roll regardless as Pokey easily drags him along. Upon reaching the funhouse steps, he'll climb up if only to avoid tripping. His arm tenses under Pokey's grip as they approach the rift.]

...You're sure about this, right? [He just doesn't want this to get any worse. Especially not now that you're here.]
ceasetoexist: (Shut up pig's butt)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-13 05:51 am (UTC)(link)
Don't be stupid.

Of course I'm not sure. But it's how I got here, so it's the only way I can think to get out.
strike_you_out: (boy next door)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-15 05:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's still uncertain but he knows one thing: they can't stay here or Pokey will end up like Edward and Luke. Turning to Pokey, Slugger nods and takes hold of his friend's shoulder as they stand before the rift. If they step through this thing and something happens, he's not getting separated from you.]

Okay. On three?
ceasetoexist: (Smiles)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-15 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[Pokey looks back at Slugger for a moment and in his eyes is a twinkle of gratitude. In his own way Pokey is pretty sure the portal will take him back home, but at the same time if it doesn't at least he'll have his best friend with him wherever he ends up.]

On three.

One.

Two.

THREE!

[And he's going through.]
strike_you_out: (break from reality)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-16 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
[On two, Slugger draws in a breath. On three, he steps through together with Pokey. The other side of the rift looks nearly identical to the first and he isn't sure if they've actually crossed into home or not, though the funhouse walls look quite a bit older now. Even so, he's still gripping Pokey's shoulder pretty tightly as he looks around.]
ceasetoexist: (A yup yup)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-17 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Pokey's between annoyed with the fact Slugger's still grabbing his shoulder and...oddly comforted by it. It's nice to know he's sticking with him even if there isn't any more danger left.

Well. Pokey thinks.

He shrugs Slugger's hand off or tries to, but gently. To try and tell him it's safe.]


C'mon ugly. We're back.

[He promises.]
strike_you_out: (tadaima)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-17 05:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Finally, he does release Pokey's shoulder and steps out of the funhouse. Seeing the old rundown carnival and the town beyond it is a welcome sight. Slugger sighs in relief but his shoulders droop.]

Yeah. We are... [And yet there were people left behind for whom he'd been responsible. He's grateful that Pokey came and got him, but he can't forget letting the others down, especially Luke. Turning away from the town, he nods to his best friend.]

Thanks.
ceasetoexist: (Look to the side)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-17 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Letting people down is something Pokey is familiar with. In a weird way it's his damn specialty. And maybe he can sense that in his best friend and how Slugger feels at the moment.

There's no one around. So Pokey feels like he can afford to ask the next question.]


No problem.

....Are you okay? Not...like hurt. Well I guess I mean that too but it'd probably take a mack truck or something to hurt you but more like....

Are you okay in...how you feel and crap?
strike_you_out: (nobody home)

[personal profile] strike_you_out 2012-07-17 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
[And because you're his best friend, he'll talk...]

Edward and Luke died in there. I was supposed to watch over Luke, but-- [He looks down, ridden with guilt.] I screwed up.
ceasetoexist: (Brothers)

[personal profile] ceasetoexist 2012-07-17 06:17 am (UTC)(link)
[Pokey just stares at Slugger in silence for a moment before he slowly shakes his head.]

It isn't your fault Slugger.

Sometimes with the town the way it is....we just can't do anything. No matter how much we want to.

[He won't say "don't feel bad" because he knows that's pointless, but...]

They'll be back. And you'll get a chance to try again with how this town is.
