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!

[ Why would anybody want to ride a ferris wheel? /sob ]

Um. Want some help?

[It's making sense at the moment okay]

Could you get this thing started so I'm at the top?
thenewnancydrew: (looking up ♥ 'cos here it comes)

[ Going over to the lever and pulling it. ]

Let me know if you find anything interesting up there!
balaton: (And the bad times that we'll have)

[The compartment progresses upward smoothly, a far cry from the rickety mess of the earlier Ferris wheel. As she stands up, the center of the car disappears, prompting Hungary to hop onto the seat instead and cling for dear life.]

That was close...
thenewnancydrew: (gasp! ♥ and now I know who you are)

[personal profile] thenewnancydrew 2012-07-03 02:23 am (UTC)(link)

[ She lurches forward and pulls the lever again, stopping the ferris wheel. ]

Are you okay?
balaton: (Know me never believe me)

[personal profile] balaton 2012-07-03 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
I'm fine! [She yells back, shifting so she's sitting more securely. A fall from this height would hurt, if not kill her. Once she's settled, she peers up and around. The rest of the town is maddeningly enveloped in fog, and even as she strains her eyes she can see nothing past the church.]

The weather is too terrible for this.
thenewnancydrew: (concern ♥  you're gonna catch a cold)

[personal profile] thenewnancydrew 2012-07-03 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
I'm more concerned with you falling and dying, to be honest. [ She reaches for the lever again. ] Want me to lower you down?

[personal profile] balaton 2012-07-03 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
That would be best. I'm not looking forward to breaking my neck from this height. [She tightens her grip around the pole, anticipating the inevitable swing of the wheel.]
thenewnancydrew: (observe ♥ i would just stand and stare)

[ Bella pulls the lever again, watching the wheel swing in reverse. ]

I always knew ferris wheels were evil.

[The wheel takes it sweet time clanking down, every sound sinister now it's proven to be as unstable as its predecessor. Hungary lets our an audible sigh of relief once it screeches to a halt at the bottom.]

We need a sign of sort here, if only to warn people.
thenewnancydrew: (looking up ♥ 'cos here it comes)

[personal profile] thenewnancydrew 2012-07-03 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
That's a good idea.

[ She looks around, biting at her lip. ]

Uh. Do you see anything to make a sign out of?
balaton: (pic#1663731)

[personal profile] balaton 2012-07-03 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
No. [There's not even a flier in sight.] This place is too clean for its own good.

[Reluctantly, she takes out a lipstick out of her uniform pocket, turning to the "Must Be This Tall to Ride" sign with a determined face.]

So, watch out for disappearing floors?
thenewnancydrew: (eyeroll ♥ it weren't for your maturity)

[personal profile] thenewnancydrew 2012-07-04 07:05 pm (UTC)(link)
The one moment when you need trash floating around, there isn't any. Great.

[ She rolls her eyes before nodding. ]
