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!

[The Doctor is currently wading in the tunnel of love. He's kicked off his boots and rolled up his trousers as he inspects the walls. He glares at a picture of the red-haired women and rips it down after give it a look over, tossing it into the water.

He runs his hands along swanboat, trying to flip it over and inspect it. Occasionally he drops down to feel the bottom of the tunnel, checking for switches or traps.

Currently, he's attempting to flip a swanboat over.]
theboywiththebook: (oh god why)

[Well Hi again Doctor. Henry just came here to inspect the place when he see's you standing in the water. Instead of asking what he's doing he'll just approach and look at the boat.]

Did you find anything?
godcomplexed: (everyone's got their chains to break)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 12:59 am (UTC)(link)
Sometimes the absence of evidence is the evidence of absence.

Or so they say.

...Er, they do say that, don't they?

theboywiththebook: (um okay?)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-06-30 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
[Henry raises an eyebrow.]

I don't think they do, but I think I get it. Something that's not here is evidence itself, right?

[He's going to pull a picture off the wall.]


I wonder who this lady is.
godcomplexed: (Default)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-07-01 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
Exactly!

[The Doctor tips the swan boat and it tips over onto the concrete and it splinters.]

Mrs. Johnson. She's a nasty piece of work. Likes experimenting on people.
theboywiththebook: (Curious)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-01 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
Is she the one who did those robot experiments on people that I heard about?

[He looks at the picture.]

Than, why is her picture plastered all over the place?

[And guess who is slowly moving towards you. A douchebag in one of the other boats. No way is he getting in that gross water.]

Having trouble with the boats?
godcomplexed: (did you hear the one about the dalek)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 01:04 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, but you could lend me a hand. Perhaps you could stick your hand under the water and hold it there for, oh I dunno, around five minutes?

Brilliant, thanks.
cueball: (Default)

[personal profile] cueball 2012-06-30 11:44 pm (UTC)(link)
No thank you, there's no telling what's in that water. It could be contaminated for all we know. Guess you'll find out in some hours if it is. [He shrugs.] Looking for something?
godcomplexed: (that is gross and you should feel gross)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-07-01 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
Some help you are.

Now we'll never get out.
cueball: (Default)

[personal profile] cueball 2012-07-01 02:47 pm (UTC)(link)
How very droll of you. If you act so stubborn then we'll be stuck in this tunnel all day.
questionauthority: (Ladies love him)

[personal profile] questionauthority 2012-06-29 05:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Wait until after Edward leaves the swanboat before you flip it over, geeze.]

Do you mind, Doctor?!

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Eyerolling.]

You're terrible at this. I'm slightly embarrassed to be seen with you here. Even more than usual.
questionauthority: (Take the money and run)

[personal profile] questionauthority 2012-06-30 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Excuse you---

[Well, he finally manages to stumble off, suddenly finding himself almost knee-deep in the water. These are his good pants, Doctor. He'll be giving you a sour look.]

Wonderful.
1_truth: (That is so stupid I don't even-)

[personal profile] 1_truth 2012-06-30 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
[ Somewhere down the tunnel there is a sound not quite like someone wading through the water but definitely trudging through it. And by the sounds of it they are not happy. ]

[ Conan is moving slowly through the water-not bothering with the swan boat because he snuck in in search of tape recorders. That are suspicious and he wants to know why they are there and where they all are. ]
soveryhuman: (no seriously you have to be)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-06-30 10:57 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oh no, Doctor, don't tear down that picture stop I insist. Oh well, guess I'll just have to watch it turn into what is essentially mush from afar. How tragic.

Annnd you are trying to flip a swanboat.

Never fear, designated flashlight-holder Rory is here! Practically a guarantee that traps, deadly or otherwise, will be found if they exist. ]


Really outdid themselves.
godcomplexed: (gone are the days of begging)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
It's a tunnel of love. Not particularly creative. Or out of place. But it's replaced the freakshow and we're in another plane of dimension from the town, so! Here we are.

[Wow. That made no sense at all, Doctor]
soveryhuman: (hesitant on this one)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-02 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, definitely here, all right. I'll take it over the freakshow. [ Hm, nothing on the ceiling waiting to drop, that's good. ] And the water is really just water and everything.

[ Not, you know. Acid that only the swanboats can safely pass through. ]
godcomplexed: (give some more time in a dream)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-07-02 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Seems alright. See for yourself.

[SPLASHES HIM.]
soveryhuman: (why am I the only one making sense)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-02 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ Wow RUDE. He liked his dry pant legs, man. ]

Very funny. It's all fun and games until the- the genetically altered piranha turn up. [ Or the vampire fish aliens. Wasn't that forever ago. YOU CAN'T TRUST ANYTHING, DOCTOR. ]

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?
godcomplexed: (look at me i am the oncoming storm)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 01:41 pm (UTC)(link)
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.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-06-30 01:50 pm (UTC)(link)
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? ]
godcomplexed: (so heavy in my arms)

[personal profile] godcomplexed 2012-06-30 03:01 pm (UTC)(link)
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.

[personal profile] the_girl_who_waited 2012-07-01 02:16 pm (UTC)(link)
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?
