welcome to mayfield: day 4

[This carnival seems to be getting less and less maintained by the day. Your nerves aren't the only thing fallen apart: what were previously holes in the sky have expanded to cracks. What parts of the sky that haven't fallen into that strange, warping nothingness are full of brown smog-like clouds.

The carnival itself has become filthy, with trash and grease spots littered everywhere. The walls of the tents, wooden stands, and houses seem to be slightly melted, for lack of a better term. The holes of corrupted nothingness aren't confined to the sky anymore: pockets of nothing litter the carnival, shifting tears in the fabric of reality that hurt your eyes to look at.

A faint buzzing noise fills the air, making it difficult to concentrate. If you listen long enough, it starts to sound like voices. For your own sake, it's probably best not to listen to what they have to say.

You're also not alone here anymore, for those of you operating under the assumption that you ever really were. If you've been missing the friendly drones of Mayfield, fear no more, because scattered throughout the carnival are a few drone families seeing the sights, riding the rides and playing the games. Curiously, unlike the drones back home, these ones don't seem to notice you at all, acting as if you're not even there.

Also curiously: their features are warped nearly beyond recognition. Some are missing limbs or facial features; others appear to have had those features scrambled by Picasso's paintbrush, with mouths on their scalps or teeth on their fingers. Still other drones appear to be fused together at the wrist, or waist, or face. None of them seem to be any more aware of their deformity than they are of you.

...and yet, somehow, you can't shake the feeling that when you're not looking at them, they're looking at you.

New here? That's alright; your missing friends have had plenty of time to get acquainted, and they'll be happy to show you around. Just watch your step, because some of these old rides need some maintenance...]

OOC: If your character damages or affects the carnival or town in a noticeable and normally permanent way, please comment here.

[She wasn't much of an investigator, but Caroline was determined to not just sit on her hands and wait for something to happen.

The hall of mirrors is a challenge, but that stupid clown keychain in her pocket keeps getting warmer if she heads in a certain direction . . . ]

Anyone else in here? Not monsters or drones, you guys can stay where you are.

[Kono just came out of the funhouse, having apparently arrived late to whatever was going on. Clearly the intelligent thing to do is to go back into the funhouse to figure out how she got that turned around...

She hears Caroline calling, and decides to follow it and answer.]

fifthtimearound: (huh?)

[Monsters and axe murders don't yell back 'hello', right? Caroline hears a voice reply and starts heading toward it. Just in case it's something horrible, she's ready to throw up a shield and run for cover.]

Over here!

. . . Marco?

[Hopefully this is someone that knows how to play Marco Polo.]
surf_n_makai: (Well...)

[Kono can't help the small smile on her face - that's one way to find each other. She follows the sound, coming around a corner and almost running right smack into Caroline.]

fifthtimearound: (whatever you say)

[Caroline jerks back, lifting a hand when she suddenly had company, but stops when she sees it's another person. And obviously the voice she's been trying to locate.]

Looks like you won.
surf_n_makai: (Well...)

Yeah, and my prize is not being in here by myself. I'll take it.

I'm Kono.
fifthtimearound: (small smile)

Caroline. Nice to meet you.

[She holds out her hand to shake.]

Glad to see someone that has all their body parts in the right places.
