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!

Need a hand?

[ Amy must really be concerned enough if she's willing to trudge through this water as well after the Doctor, a disgusted look on her face. ]

Who is that woman? [ And why is she commonly associated with her husband? ] I know she's a bit touched in the head, but other than that, who is she?

No.

You shouldn't be here.

[He scans the boat a few times over, just to make sure there's a proper pause before continuing.] Mrs. Johnson. She's another one, another thing, high up and powerful in this town. Last spring she took power from Grady and the Mayor and decided to use the townspeople as lab rats in her mad science experiments.

You always say that when something fun is about to happen. [ Downplaying the seriousness of the situation? Just a tad. ] Well, don't think I'm going to let you get your toes wet without joining in.

[ A small groan. ]

Although I could have done without getting my shoes wet. [ She's going to squish-squish-squish all day long now. ] Do you think this is her doing then?

[ And if so, why the fascination with Rory? ]

Take off your shoes first! Blimey, think you'd learn a thing or too after all this time.

[He rolls his eyes and gestures to his boots on the side of the ledge.]

Can't say for sure. Generally I think she enjoys a bit more cutting things up and sewing them back together rather than just making a spooky carnival. I feel like this would be far too hands-off for her.

And step on something gross with my bare feet. No thank you.

[ Ew. Just ew. ]

Maybe that's what our future holds. [ It was meant to be a joke, so she'll tack on an awkward half-laugh onto that statement as she hurries to catch up to him. ] So that leaves us with a bunch of other folks who may be responsible for this, doesn't it?

Plenty. Or someone new. Exciting, isn't it?

[kicks water at her, suddenly playful.]

[ Gross. Two can play at this game of splashing the other with dirty water, as Amy does the same. ]

I wouldn't call it exciting, but who am I to ruin your fun?
