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!

...yeah, guess that is me. I'm Rory. Williams. [ A little wave as he steps closer. ]
spitefulvitae: (Stare Right)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-03 12:33 am (UTC)(link)
Rory... Williams.

[That tells her nothing. There are still more questions to ask. She shifts in the ferris wheel's seat, causing it to rock and squeak faintly.]

And... and are you from Mayfield, Rory? Or are you one of us?
soveryhuman: (maybe it's a coincidence)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-06 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
Definitely not from Mayfield. Really happy not to be, actually. The pictures were- I'm not entirely sure what the pictures were about.
spitefulvitae: (Generally Unimpressed)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-07 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. I... hm.

[She tilts her head, her smile becoming a frown.]

One of the keepers here likes you. You poor thing. You poor, poor thing...
soveryhuman: (look at your life look at your choices)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-07 06:54 pm (UTC)(link)
'Like' being basically the same as hate, if we're honest about it. But it's not... as bad as it could be. Yet. I'm spending most of my time being grateful for that.
spitefulvitae: (Intensity)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-09 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, it's the kind of "like" that I'm sure you don't like at all. Mm, not so bad... are you mostly left alone?
soveryhuman: (the Neville Longbottom of canon)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-10 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Mostly. I only met her the one time, and she sort of... [ A vague palm-up gesture, because he's not sure what the right way to put it is. ] Uhm. Latched on, I guess.
spitefulvitae: (Hmmph lovely)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-11 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. Creepy stalker, then.

[Wait, wait, she's still in that ferris wheel cart, isn't she? Maybe she'd better rethink that... she hops out, smooths down her skirt, and moves in a bit closer.]

Is she not around enough to give you trouble?
soveryhuman: (okay sure spoilers)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-11 06:56 am (UTC)(link)
Good way to put it. There were, uh. Some surgeries happening, a while back, I don't know if you were in Mayfield for them?
spitefulvitae: (Stare Right)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-19 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
No.. no, I wasn't here for that. That was before my time. Surgeries...?

[She's curious. And worried. Worryingly curious, too? Yes, let's go with that.]
soveryhuman: (I... I am Mister Pond)

[personal profile] soveryhuman 2012-07-26 06:52 am (UTC)(link)
[ He clears his throat. ] Well, there was a bit of a thing where people got taken and operated on, a while back. With some nasty after-effects once they got back out.
spitefulvitae: (Going over here now)

[personal profile] spitefulvitae 2012-07-29 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. [She grimaces, looking genuinely disturbed by that. For she had seen the freak show, back in regular Mayfield. Now there seemed to be some context.]

I see. Nasty stuff, that...
