Event start!

Let the Cirque du Vrai begin!

OOC: The event starts today. It affects Attleton. Players can make their own posts and have fun with it or they can reply to this post with top levels and have fun that way! Up to you! There will be a separate log posted for the Showstopper on the 29th. If you have any questions or would like to sign up for the Showstopper, please check out the event details and remember that sign-ups for the Showstopper close tonight at 11:59pm PST.

Please note that if your character tries to enter the circus without a mask and costume (cannot be something your character already owned because it's not a disguise if it's theirs), they'll be prevented from getting in one way or the other. Don't try to get around it and don't try to be like WELL NO ONE CAN STOP MY CHARACTER!! If your character goes right past them they'll find themselves in the field the next day the second they go past the gates, capiche?? No cheating it's not fun for anyone.




As the sun sets in Attleton, a strange haze seems to glow over the barrier for a few moments before in the distance, a sequence of lights flickers on. The entrance sign first, then tents and merry-go-rounds and booths and all manner of dizzying fun illuminate just as darkness falls. It doesn't take more than a few seconds for the sounds of cheers and fun to fill the Attleton air. It almost seems like it's calling to you, inviting you in. As you approach, a man on stilts greets you. He explains that the flyers that have been floating around town with the wind and on the walls were all for this, the Cirque du Vrai! Become someone else to become yourself, step right up! You don't need to buy a ticket, you just need to buy a costume.

"There's a costume shop right next to the entrance for those who aren't prepared, and a master mask maker who will create any mask you desire, or leave it up to him once he decides what he thinks suits you. If you brought your own, that's fine too! The Cirque is here for days, there's time to spare! Don't let reservations drive you to despair! You'll miss out on fun if you let your life run all over the mystery we've so prestigiously spun. Test your skills, test your wills, find your chills, thrills, and pills. Here it is, the moment you've been waiting for is just beyond the gate! Accept who you are and you'll need none to commiserate!"

The man laughs, leaving before you can ask what that means to invite another in, and the game begins. Welcome to the Cirque du Vrai. Enjoy.

Tannusen, having found out he couldn't just use his old mask from his tight-rope act days, literally just grabbed and threw on the first dumb thing he'd found. A grim reaper costume. Robes, hood, goat-skull-looking mask...

He's even carrying a fake scythe because it amuses him.

The pooka pauses upon spotting the food travesty going on, however. Well... maybe this guy knows what he's doing? Don't people mix fries and shakes? Maybe not literally...

Kay's thought process went as follows: He learned that liked ice cream. He also liked fries. Sure the two combined would make an amazing meal, right?

Wrong.

Only half of his face is visible but it's clear that after he takes a bit of the covered an ice-cream french fry he's making a disgusted expression. How dare you betray him like that, food?

"Yuck."

"Not having much luck, are we?" Tannusen found this amusing enough to slide up next to the stranger.

The circus could require all the costuming it wanted.

All the masks.

It would never conceal that ever-present purr of the tiger Faerie's voice.

Kay looks in the direction of the new voice. The mask still covers half of his face but his unhappy pout is very much visible.

"I thought this would taste twice as good, given that each one of the ingredients is very tasty on its own. I suppose food doesn't understands maths." Just as Kay doesn't understand food.

"New to food, are you?" What a strange thing, encountering this sort of thing in the Autumn World. Not impossible, to the Faerie -- merely strange. "I hear some people are quite fond of mixing sweet and salt."

"It's very obvious, I take it? I didn't even have a mouth this morning." That explanation probably needs some more context to not sound completely creepy, but here's Kay not realizing how weird it is.

"Maybe I messed up with the quantities. Is that what you like? I'm curious about the different tastes now that I can actually sense them."·

This... still isn't that odd to the tiger, weirdly enough. He could easily be speaking to a chimera who's having its first romp through the mortal realm.

"Mm, I've taken up some cooking outside of my usual realm of expertise," because he lives with two people who don't know how to feed their damn selves, "but I haven't tried that, no. I'm more of a..."

And he bent a little, trying to peer under Kay's uplifted mask.

"...meat aficionado, by choice."

Bless Tannusen and his weird particular life, at least he's not annoyed by Kay's ignorance about basic food etiquette.

"I haven't tried any meat yeat." Given that Kay is fairly tall for a human and that the mask only covers half of his face, Tannusen shouldn't have a lot of trouble catching a peek. "I should, I've heard is pretty good. Any suggestions about what to try first?"

Tannusen doesn't make a joke about long pig for two reasons. One, he's not sure if this guy is a human? And he doesn't suggest, even jokingly, that humans eat human.

And two, this fucked up carnivale would probably produce some. Fuckin', human kebab, step right up...

"Beef," Tannusen answers instead, grinning under his own mask and hood. It can't be seen, but it can be heard in that purring voice of his. "Preferably steak. Rare, if you're wanting actual flavor."

It's a good thing he doesn't because, while funny, it would go right over Kay's head.

"I'll have to try it, all I care about is the taste now, food doesn't really give me any nutritional benefits." Fries and icecram forgotten, the man has all of Kay's attention. He seems familiar, in a way Kay can't fully place until he notices the purred reply.

"Do I know you? I don't look like my usual sale but I'm Kaytoo."

"Really?" Tannusen's impressed, immediately. "Can I poke you? You don't look so... metal, at the moment. Do you have a chimerical form now, or something?"

A distinct possibility, to Tannusen. After all, Jethro's mortal form is that of a motorcycle. And if he was looking at a chimerical version of someone he... wouldn't immediately know it. So immersed in the chimerical side of reality, he is, as a Faerie. He doesn't see the whites in his own eyes when he looks in a mirror; never sees his own skin without the stripes, anymore.

"I should say you do, I'm Tannusen." Purring voice, and all!

If the mask wasn't hiding them, Tannus would see Kay's eyebrows go up.

"You want to poke me." He sounded more amused than anything else. "you can if that's your wish but I am still very much mechanical on the inside. This is an android body, I'm only borrowing it for the time being. My real body and a copy of my very self are stored somewhere safe.

"Oh! All makes more sense now. are you having fun? I've never been in a Circus before but I know you were part of one, time ago."
