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!

[well this was curious. Dainn could be satisfied with human food - however disgusting it was to the vampire - but he wasn't getting anything out of eating this "burger".]

Strange...this should still taste like something to me....

[He watches the girl bite in from the side.]

I'm surprised anyone would actually eat that.
shadow_possession: (Cheshire cat grin)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-06-29 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Dainn laughs.]

Mmm...I suppose I shouldn't. But it's food. [and he doesn't want to give away what he is just yet.]

[personal profile] cueball 2012-06-29 08:47 pm (UTC)(link)
If it's food, then why is it without taste?
shadow_possession: (Laughing)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-06-29 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I think the answer most would give is "because it's Mayfield`. But my answer is that I don`t know.

[personal profile] cueball 2012-06-30 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Then why even bother eating it? It could be poisoned very easily.
shadow_possession: (Smug)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-06-30 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[he just laughs.]

I won't be killed by something as simple as posion. I'm much stronger than that.

[personal profile] cueball 2012-07-01 02:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Is that so? Then, if you are willing to accept the risk that you are wrong, go ahead and gorge on the food. But don't regret it later.
shadow_possession: (Hehe.)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
I have made it a policy to never regret what I do. [besides, he can't feel regret anyways.]
cueball: (Default)

[personal profile] cueball 2012-07-03 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
A good policy to have. One that many should adapt. In that case, you go ahead and eat. I won't stop you. [Though he will watch to see what happens.]
spitefulvitae: (Distrust)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-01 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
...so you eat?

[Natalie shouldn't have been too surprised.... but it was a question worth asking. It was an issue worth bringing up.

And she was totally giving the food stand some uneasy glances.]
shadow_possession: (Recollection)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 01:29 am (UTC)(link)
[Dainn smiles.]

On occasion when there's nothing else better. And it feels safe, if you're wondering.
spitefulvitae: (You're not serious)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
I don't eat.

[She shoots him a look of withering irritation.]

I can't eat. What kind of vampire are you, that you can still eat?
shadow_possession: (Shadow)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
[there's just a laugh.]

I am what I am. There's no need to be irritated. [besides Dainn was something else before he was a vampire.]
spitefulvitae: (Unimpressed)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
What you are is annoying. This town has far too many "vampires" with far too few frailties.

[She huffs lightly.]

...if you want blood, the rats are an option.
shadow_possession: (Hehe.)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
I'd rather not be weak. But yes they are an option, just one I haven't decided to explore yet. [he likes taking his time with things.]
spitefulvitae: (Faint menace)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
I'd rather not be weak, either.

[She's assessing him in a way that's not very friendly looking. ...could she drink him back? And what might she gain from it? Other than an enduring enemy, of course...]
shadow_possession: (Cheshire cat grin)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Dainn, while he is good at guessing people's thoughts, is not a mind reader but he can reconize a not-so friendly looks when he sees one. maybe it was time to tune down the trolling just a bit.]

Relax...there isn't much point in starting a fight.
spitefulvitae: (I Gaze and I Judge)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
No. I suppose not. Not now.

[And she lets a little silence hang in the air, allowing him to draw whatever conclusions he wants. It was coming as a surprise to her, but she had been missing the petty sniping and posturing that came with interacting with other vampires.

She breaks eye contact with him, looking about the carnival.]


We might have bigger worries on the way.
shadow_possession: (See?)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
[he does draw some conclusions from that and keeps it in the back of his mind. but Dainn also finds he's enjoying this kind of conversation, ones that went around in circles and pettiness.]

I wouldn't be surprised, considering where we are. I wonder what sort of game Mayfield has in store for us...
spitefulvitae: (Even gaze)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 03:05 am (UTC)(link)
I have no clear idea as to what. But everyone else is anxious. It's best to feel out the mood of the mob. It often knows whats happening.
shadow_possession: (Blood)

[personal profile] shadow_possession 2012-07-02 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Mmmm...speaking of, I should go do that...[not that he wasn't having trouble doing it from here.]
spitefulvitae: (Intensity)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-02 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
Hm, have fun with that...

[She gives him a little wave, then wanders off, too. Time to go find a rat. She's feeling peckish.]
