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!

[Wow, that just cleared up everything. Gakupo has no reason to not believe Lucas, so he smiles softly.]

Ah, that's all?
a_gentle_boy: (Doubtful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-06-29 05:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lucas looks a little pouty.]

...It might make a good weapon, too. I think we're probably run into trouble soon...
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: Hmm?)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-06-29 05:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm...well, a good thing I did manage to get a sword a couple of months back. [The sword he had was more like a rapier than his usual noisy Japanese sword. It was better than nothing.] I'm just not sure your paddle will hold up in a fight.

Ah, you don't have to worry about that.

[Lucas's specialty is fighting with children's toys. He digs a yo-yo out of his pocket and flicks it a little.]

I've always been able to get by. They can be pretty powerful if you know what you're doing.

[Or if you're psychic.]

[The yo-yo blazes to life as it dances and jerks on the string, moving in ways that probably partially violate the laws of yo-yo physics. Lucas only shows off for a moment or two before he pockets it again.]

I never liked the idea of knives or swords or anything like that...
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: OMG)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-06-29 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Wow! That's amazing! A very nice choice of weapon!
a_gentle_boy: (Ready)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-06-29 06:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Eheh... Thanks. I usually use a stick, but this works well enough when I need it to.

[Lucas will turn back towards the prizes.]

There's a lot of stuff here... I wonder who they thought was going to take it.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: Hmm?)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-06-29 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[Gakupo looked to the prizes as well.]

There doesn't seem to be anyone operating this. Are we supposed to play fairly?
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-06-29 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
I guess it's an honor system.

[He'll begin to meander down the rows of assorted objects.]

Some of these prizes actually look like they'd be valuable. None of it is very useful, but...

[He'll pick up a stuffed bear.]

I'd play for this.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: serious business)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-06-30 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
Even I wouldn't expect much honor from this town.

[The prizes do look pretty nice, but nothing that would suit him. He'd probably get it for his sister or Rarity. He looks behind the booth and sees a series of levers and buttons.]

Maybe I can operate this so you can play...
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-06-30 01:24 am (UTC)(link)
Eheh... Sure!

What kind of game is this?
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: nostalgic)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-01 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
You have to use this water gun and shoot a spray of water into the clown's mouth. The water makes the balloon fill up with air somehow. Usually other people are competing to fill the balloon to bursting first, but since no one is here right now, you can take your time!
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-01 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Alright. I can give it a try!

[Lucas heads around back to the front of the stand to examine the water gun. He'll squint a little to see how far away his target was.]

Hm... But if no one else is playing, I can't possibly lose, right?
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: Hmm?)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-01 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Right! [Tilts head to one side.] Why? Did you want competition?
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-02 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
Well... It doesn't seem fair. I might as well just take what I want if that's the case.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: 。。。)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-02 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
How about you have fifteen seconds to fill the balloon to bursting?
Edited 2012-07-02 01:48 (UTC)
a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-02 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, that's more fair. ...Maybe it's too long, though. How about ten?
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: oh rly?)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-02 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
Sure, then then. [Gakupo gets to his position behind the bar.] Ready?
a_gentle_boy: (Resolve)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-02 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
Right! OK, whenever you want to start!

[Lucas will lift it up and begin to aim.]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: Good Times)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-02 01:57 am (UTC)(link)
Set...GO! [He pushes a button, which makes an alarm go off and the water ready to be shot ouf of the gun!]
a_gentle_boy: (Combo)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-02 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Pshhhhhh........ Wait no it was dribbling all over the floor Lucas tries to readjust it frantically. ...He probably sprays Gakupo at some point. At the four second mark he will find the sweet spot and then spray as hard as he can!!

Does he make it?!?]
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: OMG)

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-02 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
[OH HEY HE'S NOT A BALLOON! Okay, now the water is going into the balloon and it's filling up nicely so far! Just a bit more...

Meanwhile, Gakupo is brushing the hair from his face before starting a countdown.]

Three! Two! One--

a_gentle_boy: (Cheerful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-02 02:26 am (UTC)(link)

[Lucas throws his hands up in victory. ...Oops his finger is still on the trigger. ...Oops he might squirt you again in his haste.]

A-Ah! Sorry.
thepurpleway: (Gakupo: not amused B()

[personal profile] thepurpleway 2012-07-02 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, he is not a happy camper.] Are you done? [SIGHS] What prize would you like?
