welcome to mayfield: day 1



[As you step out of the funhouse, blinking against the strong sunlight, it may seem at first that you've wound up back where you started. The carnival with all of its joys and wonders still stands, the Ferris Wheel looming majestically over Mayfield...

...except, did it always look that new and shiny? And it's not the only thing that got a makeover either; it seems like everything in the carnival has been fixed up from its previously rundown state. Fresh coats of paint gleam from every stand and every ride, and there isn't a spot of rust or a broken board anywhere in sight. At the entrance of the carnival hangs a large banner that reads:

Welcome to Mayfield - the Happiest Town on Earth!


Just how long were you exploring the funhouse for, anyway?

And as you start taking in the changes, you may notice one other minor difference: there are no drones to be found anywhere. It seems like the only other living beings in this place are your fellow townspeople who also entered the funhouse...well, that and the large, vicious looking rats that scurry around from place to place. But don't worry, there aren't that many of them and they only come out at night! So go ahead and enjoy having the carnival all to yourselves; after all, with all those minor safety issues fixed up, what could possibly go wrong?

The back exit of the carnival leads to a small street with four standard Mayfield houses and its church at the end. Attempting to leave the carnival via the entrance (although we can't imagine why you would) will only wind up looping you to the end of this street. Where the rest of Mayfield has gone, well...who can say?]


OOC and extra information about this town can be found here - please read it before you start tagging! Remember, only those in the first group should be in this post!

It's a... tape recorder.

[ Don't mind the small detective invading your personal space to get a good look at it. ]

...Ne, is there anything on it?
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: Rolling my eyes)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-06-30 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. Thank you. I know.

[You are the third person to inform her of this.]

I was trying to figure out what it's doing here.

And it was blank. I added a message and someone else added another one after me. So there's just those.
1_truth: (coughcough. Totally sick.)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
Are you sure it's blank? It's really weird to leave a tape recorder here, isn't it?
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: I'm bored)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-06-30 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
Was blank.

And yeah. I checked, twice.

Besides this is Mayfield, it does things like this.
1_truth: (Ah le le le)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Can I see?

[ He reaches for it without waiting for an answer. ]

I don't think this is the Mayfield we're used too.. but something about it... aside from the obvious... isn't right.

...Do you think there are other tape recorders around?
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: I'm bored)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-06-30 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
[Passes it to him.]

Maybe. I'm just looking for anything at this point.

And yeah...it's kinda ...cleaner here. No drones, smaller. Stuff like that.
1_truth: (brb being a brat)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
Well.. that's the obvious. But for some reason I find it even more unsettling than the regular mayfield.

[ Don't mind him as he starts to carefully pull the tape out, looking at both sides carefully. ]


It's just bothering me, you know? That broadcast on the radio said something about holes to escape through-well we didn't go through any holes to get here, did we? This maybe the very thing we were warned against.
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: Yeah...I'm going ta say no)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-06-30 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
Eh, it's not as bad as Westport. There's no poison gas or people trying to kill us anyway.

[She looks around.]

Maybe the funhouse was a hole.

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
If that were the case then shouldn't Grey-san be here with us?
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: I'm bored)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-06-30 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe he is.

Though I think they found a body that was supposed to be him like...two years ago, so I'm not really sure what's going on.
1_truth: (Let's consider the options)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. That and these tape recorders are what's worrying me.
crazyclownwoman: (Costume: Wait he said what?)

[personal profile] crazyclownwoman 2012-07-02 12:46 am (UTC)(link)
Why?

I mean it's kinda strange. But everything here is strange.
1_truth: (This might cause a problem)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-02 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
Because, it's possible isn't it? That what we heard over the radio was really a recording-possibly a recording that came from here.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-06-30 11:39 am (UTC)(link)
Seems pretty blank. [ She'll scoot over to let him. ] Think we should leave a message?
1_truth: (This might cause a problem)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 02:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[ He takes the tape out to look at it carefully. ]

Are you sure there's nothing on it?

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-07-01 02:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Not sure, but I've seen a couple of others come by and fiddle with it. [ It's better to stay in one place when lost than to wander around aimlessly after all. ] Do you think something should be on it?
1_truth: (pic#1889319)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-01 02:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Not especially. But.. the fact that a tape recorder is here is a little unsettling after that broadcast.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-07-01 02:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Do you think anything that gets recorded might get sent back to the town then?
1_truth: (Something behind me?)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-01 02:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Oh hey! Someone caught on! ]

I don't know. It's possible. And since Grey-san was supposedly found dead in a swimming pool two years ago I'd say it's probable.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-07-01 02:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Companions need to be keen and Amy's as sharp as a tack. ]

In two years from now, we can listen to our messages I guess. [ Running a hand through her hair nervously. ] Unless this is somehow two years in the past.

[ Quickly correcting herself: ] At least two years. These machines look newer than the ones we left behind, don't they?
1_truth: (Super Smart little kid)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-01 02:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes... they definitely look newer... however, I'm not entirely sure it's because we've gone into the past-or the actual past. This part of Mayfield isn't as developed as the side we're used too. This maybe Mayfield at it's earlier stages-a kind of prototype, if you will.

But... the tape recorders. Why are they here? Surely it's unusual to hide a tape recorders around a carnival.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-07-01 03:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[ A prototype? An interesting theory to go with, but still a plausible one. In fact, he seems to be more knowledgeable of their imprisonment over any person she's spoken with already. ]

It isn't as though they're really well-hidden either. [ A shrug before she gives her own theory. ] Maybe they're placed here so that we could find them. No idea what for though.
1_truth: (pic#1889398)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-07-02 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oh. He definitely has an idea or two why, it's just that those ideas are pretty dark for a seven year old to think of. He'll have to bring it to her attention some other way than stating it outright. Time to change his expression entirely and put on a bright little kid smile. ]

Maybe they're just here to record everyone having fun!

[ Having fun. Dying. One of those. ]
