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!

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.
balzams: (Upset ● Complaining)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 07:44 pm (UTC)(link)
But I have no idea what's going to happen! It might be terrible just like you said.

It's too quiet and eerily clean...

And I'm still hungry.
vytis: (I don't know what hurt you)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't worry that much--

Weren't you just eating? [They are standing next to food, after all.]
technophiling: (default // something is probably up...)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-29 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[Whatever Estonia was going to say, he's now thoroughly sidetracked by Latvia's hunger. He was just eating. And the fact that Latvia isn't exactly known for being a bottomless pit, that has him thinking, and then worrying. Because this could be a whole other issue.]

Oh, no...
balzams: (Surprise ● Realization)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-29 10:30 pm (UTC)(link)
[Coming back onto the issue only reminded him more of it and he swipes another hamburger from the service counter]

...What?
vytis: (everything you think you know)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-29 10:31 pm (UTC)(link)
...What? [Lithuania's tone is far more "please tell me you are not thinking what I think you're thinking" because this could really quickly become a hundred times worse if he's right.]
technophiling: (you don't know)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-30 06:27 pm (UTC)(link)
This is not good. Not good in the way that they've isolated us but I'm pretty sure they've no intention of feeding us, at least by conventional methods.

[You should both know him well enough by now to know that he has some idea of what those non-conventional methods might be.]
balzams: (Uneasy ● Bad feeling)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-30 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Taking a bite he seems rather thoughtful of it. It didn't taste bad at all, it just wasn't making him full. Latvia doesn't quite understand what Estonia's trying to say]

What do you mean 'no intention'? Food just keeps appearing on the counter top, it's not like it's being withed.

And what do you mean non-conventional...?

vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-30 06:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lithuania reaches for a box of peanuts to examine it, turning it over in his hands.]

So this isn't real, then?
technophiling: (constant adjustment)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-30 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I don't think it is. You're consuming molecules, maybe, but it's like... without the energy proper organic food would give off.
balzams: (Uneasy ● Bad feeling)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-30 06:39 pm (UTC)(link)
So... I've been eating nothing for the past half hour?

[He's not sure he wants to think about the implications]
vytis: (who can it be)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-30 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Mn.

[This is worrying, but it's not as if going a day or two without food will kill them like--]

...Is there water?
technophiling: (just a little traumatized)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-06-30 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
... I guess that's our next priority, then, isn't it?
balzams: (Scared ● Tremble)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-06-30 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[Despite it not being real, he still can't stop eating]

W-what about the taps in the houses? Or is that just fake water too?
vytis: (oh tell me why)

[personal profile] vytis 2012-06-30 06:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know, I didn't try them. We could go check...
technophiling: (default // something is probably up...)

[personal profile] technophiling 2012-07-01 08:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Estonia just nods, not wanting to stay here with the "food" stand any longer.]

That's the best plan we have right now. Come on.
balzams: (Surprise ● Realization)

[personal profile] balzams 2012-07-01 09:29 am (UTC)(link)
Mm!

[Latvia quickly finishes the rest of his food and grabs the shovel]

Okay, I'm ready.
