|WELCOME TO THE SHOW!↴|
Or, more specifically, Lost Carnival's test drive meme! This is an opportunity to try out your characters in the setting before you apply, or to put together samples for characters you've never played before. There are going to be options for both new arrivals and veteran characters. Before we get started, let's lay down some details:
- You can (and should) read the full premise here.
- Reserves and Applications are currently OPEN.
- You can apply as a newcomer or as a "veteran" character who has been in the carnival for up to three years. In the case of veteran characters, you will need to come up with an explanation of why they haven't been around the carnival recently.
- TDM threads can be used as game canon after the fact if both characters are accepted, the players agree to it, and it makes any sense contextually.
- If you are interested in additional IC and OOC plot responsibilities, consider applying for a Supervisor position. Head Cook and Treasurer are currently open. Otherwise, we're pretty much down for anything, roles wise.
( PROMPTS ARE WITHIN! )
The ❤E X P A N D E D❤ Heart Meter Meme
You know the drill:
❤ Comment with your character.
❤ Copy/paste the appropriate hearts to reply to other characters.
❤ Fill in alternate text as desired.
❤ Alternatively you can just write an IC letter from your character to theirs cause mobile is terrible for hearts. Basically the same thing.( Read more... )
Snatches from this heart meme here

Hi everyone, my name is TEN (not the other ten) and I am fresh meat bringing you Crow Hogan from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's! He's a newbie arriving after making a deal with the Ringmaster to bring back his kids from not-actually death, and will be working as a repairman.
All you need to know about Crow is that he is small and angry and ready to punch all of his canonmates for various reasons--
Ok but for reals, Crow is just a dude who lived on the streets of an island city that is basically a dumping ground for trash and spends his time trying to raise a gaggle of orphaned children while living in poverty. But he's determined to give his children a better future, so he's ready to fite everyone who'll take that away from them. He'll be arriving extremely ticked off since he's arriving from a canon point where his kids are 'dead', but when he's not angry, he's an andrenaline junkie who loves nothing more than going fast on his motorbike.
Looking forward to playing with everyone, and I can be contacted at jesii
for plotting!(I also just got back from literally 24 hours of flying, so I am dead tired, but it's great to be here!)
My name is Desh and I will be bringing you Tyki Mikk from D.Gray-man. He'll be arriving on Day 145 in order to lose a horrid game of strip poker to the Ringmaster that he won't ever talk about unless coerced. In the Carnival he'll be working as a Magician/Conman.
Tyki is a Victorian Noble that dresses to perfection and has a lazy if not charming attitude about him. Despite being an antagonist in D.Gray-man with his violent and nihilistic tendencies he can actually be a pretty decent guy. He'll actively seek friendships and comrades like any ordinary man and his loyalty in the long run is worth having. He's sympathetic to humans even if his family is out to destroy them and he will actively play that part in his world eventually. D.Gray-man is a little vague on terms of technology given how magic is the only real factor to anything really working towards a modern civilization sort of theme. It means common things like cellphones, the internet, TV, microwaves, washing machines will be foreign to him. Also food such as pizza and hot dogs may be lost on him entirely. Please help this poor, poor man.
As the Noah of Pleasure he'll try to indulge in daily comforts such as food, wine, woman, friends, smoking and gambling. Killing and fighting is also a huge thrill of his but it is not necessary. He won't start a fight but he'll sure as hell end it. FRIENDS OF ALLEN WALKER at least be aware he might stalk you a little and anyone religious he might pick at given his hatred of God yet he'll have no ill intentions to any of them. It's just habit.
I welcome all CR and look forward to playing with all of you. My plurk is mister_hyde
and I can be reached also by PM or Discord: Tyki Mikk#0824!

This time, there is no preparation. When the Severing was broken, the Ringmaster immediately returned everyone to the carnival, no matter their earthly location - only to then drag the carnival's realm all the way to the Summerlands right after. As the workers arrive, they will have been scattered around the carnival grounds, back in their original bodies - including their old faerie changes, of course, plus perhaps a few new ones. Bodies and memories will return to what they were before Portland, and while the life they lived there will stay with them as memories, they will only now be left to fully contemplate what they just experienced.
The Summerlands are an idyllic realm of glorious mountain-top cities and vast fields of flowers and grass. It is inhabited almost entirely by the Summer Fae, a faction of the Summer Court which broken ties with their Arcadia homeland a long time ago. Veterans that have been with the carnival since the vampire's first attack will remember staying here for a couple months while everyone was recovering. The fae here will remember those workers as well, with an accuracy that is sometimes eerie.
There is plenty to do in the Summer Fae's city - though there is far more space than there is people, given that there are only a few hundred fae present here. There is no shortage of good food, music, and dancing - with plenty of other amenities like waterfall-side pools and gardens filled with small miracles. All workers will be offered rooms they can stay in within the city if they prefer, but they are also welcome to stay within the carnival grounds if that makes them more comfortable. There is magical wildlife of various sorts, but none of it is particularly aggressive beyond basic predatory tendencies.
The days and nights and both of pleasant temperature and weather. It's only major downside is that the peaceful and unchanging nature of civilization can come across as unsettling to those unaccustomed. Once you have been welcomed here, it's like you never left.
( MORE PLOT DETAILS BELOW )
The end of the event is drawing near, and while some investigation is still being resolved, the bulk of the plot's mysteries have been exposed in some form or another. This means it's time to talk about what will be happening as this event comes to a close - and in the case of this particular post, what your characters will be taking away from it!
The event will be ending with the Winter Court attempting to take control of the Severing Spell on the night of Halloween. It will be the player's role to make sure they are able to take control of it in order to bring it down, or at least to get everyone back to the carnival. How exactly that will play out is still up in the air, but once everyone is returned to the carnival (one way or the other) they will retain some memories and skills from their alternate lives.
Everything that occurred during the month long event will be in perfect clarity, but memories of their alternate backstories will be fuzzier, and will conflict less harshly as their true histories reassert dominance. However, that doesn't mean that new identity and new history is gone for good. Complete or not, it will still be a part of your character, and major backstory events will remain in mind, even if it feels more distant and confused than their original lives.
Beyond those memories, the characters will be able to potentially bring some other traits and skills with them, as outlined in this post.
( POSSIBLE GOODIES, BENEATH THE CUT )
|CONFLICT: RITUAL COMPONENT↴|
The time has come to decide who is coming up on top in the battle for the ritual component required for the execution and control of the spell intended to take control of the Severing. As voted by the players, this will be decided by dice rolls, modified with bonuses based on the in-game situation and player character support. There's going to be some cause and effect here, so each stage will have to be rolled separately, as how much they win or lose by may effect them in the next conflict.
The dice are going to be rolled publicly on the mod plurk (lostcarnival), and the results will be posted here. This is an organizational post to make sure this information all ends up in the same place, and is publicly accessible to all players. Each team requires two things to successfully take control of the Severing: this ritual component, and a powerful caster with a blood connection to one of the rewritten carnival members, who will be used as a catalyst. The catalyst must be at least half human. Here is a rundown of the current teams:
( THIS AND MORE, BENEATH THE CUT )
Hey all! With Week 3 upon us, and things taking a turn more for the plot-heavy, I thought it might be useful to put up an OOC post for coordinating/touching base to facilitate characters bumping into each other, regaining more memories, etc. Feel free to us this post to sound off about what your character's been up to, if you're looking to play something in particular, and whether they're thinking of joining a faction.
Please put your character names in headers for ease of searching, and here's an optional and totally non-mandatory form, in case you're like me and like having something to put your ducks in a row. Delete whatever sections you feel like you don't need!
