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!

FOOD

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 05:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[New places were always exhausting, this was no different. Towards the evening Latvia gravitates towards the food stall, having not eaten most of the day he's feeling exceedingly hungry. Unlike the carnival back in the old Mayfield, the food here smells surprisingly good. He quickly scarfs down the first burger, and the second. He rests his shovel against the side of the stall and leans against the wall as he gets through his third. Despite this, he's still feeling quite ravenous]

[It only really occurs to Lithuania to check the food stall around evening--probably because that's when his body finally reminds him he's hungry. Spotting Latvia is a surprise--he can't be sure if it's a good or bad one yet, though.]

Latvia!
balzams: (Surprise ● Realization)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 05:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[He swallows what he already bit off, trying not to choke at the surprise]

Lithuania! What happened?
technophiling: ([trio] needs more trio icons)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's not a Baltic party if one is missing, so Estonia knows its his cue to show up now, immediately dodging around Lithuania to take Latvia by the arms, holding him still as he looks him over.]

You're not mortally wounded or anything yet, are you, Läti?
balzams: (Uneasy ● Confronted)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[He normally doesn't expect Estonia to be so hands on and he wriggles a little in his grip]

I-I'm fine! Why? Is there something dangerous here?
vytis: (I don't know what hurt you)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lithuania isn't sure what it says about this place or their luck that all three of them are here. Still, he can't help but smile a bit in spite of the situation.]

It is Mayfield--er. [He frowns.] I think.
technophiling: (just a little traumatized)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm assuming so. And you're good at finding trouble.

[Estonia wrinkles his nose, watching Latvia a moment longer before letting him go and stepping back to a more normal distance.]
balzams: (Uneasy ● Anxious)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[Latvia takes another bite out of his food and frowns]

I haven't seen anything dangerous so far though. In fact I've barely seen anything at all...
vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Barely seeing anything is part of the problem, though. [He still hasn't seen Poland or Koharu, and even though they got separated in the funhouse it's not as if they were that far behind.]
technophiling: (default // something is probably up...)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 06:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Like Lithuania said, it's Mayfield. Just because we haven't seen anything yet doesn't mean that there's not something about to happen... Or already happening, for that matter.

We should stick together.

[Estonia, for one, doesn't want to spend another few months isolated because some Mayfield horror scheme screwed up his relationships with his friend-brother-Baltic-things.]
balzams: (Uneasy ● Bad feeling)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 06:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Mm!

[Latvia nods and quickly scarfs down the rest of his food. Even though it was his third burger he doesn't feel full at all and he eyes the service counter longingly]

Yeah, it does seem too quiet... What do you think happened to everyone else? I'm sure the whole town can't be here.
vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 06:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lithuania nods agreement with Estonia's decision to stick together.]

This could be some other area, like the highway was. [He would rather think they're in a different place than consider the idea that everyone who isn't here has vanished.] Or like Westport?

[It has not yet occurred to Lithuania to wonder if Latvia or Estonia have heard of Westport.]
technophiling: (constant adjustment)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 07:02 pm (UTC)(link)
I think it's just going to cause anxiety to worry about everyone else's fate right now, until we can at least semi-determine our own.

[With a little nervous adjustment to his glasses, Estonia glances at Lithuania.]

Refresh my memory of Westport?
balzams: (Thoughtful ● Serious)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Westport?

[Now he's completely lost]

I didn't know there was anywhere else around here besides Mayfield.
vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 07:06 pm (UTC)(link)
It was before I arrived, but apparently there was another town some people got sent to called Westport. It was like Mayfield, only completely ruined, a-and I guess it was pretty dangerous...

[Wait, this is a terrible thing to be comparing their current situation to.]
technophiling: (typical things)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[Estonia nods, thinking a moment before pulling a crumpled notepad and a pen from his pocket, so scribble down some notes.]

It could very well be a similar situation. If only we knew someone who had experienced it first hand here presently.
balzams: (Smile ● Anxious)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 07:19 pm (UTC)(link)
W-well this place actually looks pretty good so it can't be exactly the same, right?

So if it's well kept it won't be as dangerous, right? Right?
vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 07:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[...Lithuania cannot answer Latvia's question at all honestly and hope to make him feel at all better. Have a really concerned look, instead!]

It's possible someone here was there... I didn't really go around asking...
technophiling: ([trio] needs more trio icons)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 07:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[Most normal but essentially useless response to any question ever, Lithuania. Good going.]

Maybe that would be a start... Latvia, you're in charge of optimism.
balzams: (Upset ● Complaining)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't make me in charge of that! You know I won't be able to do it!
vytis: (I don't know what hurt you)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Y-you're doing alright so far? [Lithuania that's not really helping.]
technophiling: (constant adjustment)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Lithuania's the worrier and I'm busy trying to make sense of it all, so you'll have to do, Latvia, I'm very sorry.
balzams: (Upset ● Complaining)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 07:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't just decide things for me like that!

Why can't Lithuania be the optimist? He's been here to longest so that means he knows what there is to be optimistic about.
vytis: (I've got a fever)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 07:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Er--

[And now Lithuania is going back through every single event that's happened while he was here in his mind.

He is looking less optimistic by the second]


Er...
technophiling: (nervous laughter)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)
... [Estonia is pretty sure that is not how Mayfield works, sorry Latvia.]

But Lithuania's version of optimism is not having terribly bad stomach ulcers from worrying yet. Which isn't very optimistic. Come on, I'm sure you can do better.
