HELL OF A HANGOVER PT. 1

Who: The people who escaped!
When: Very early Day 66 to Day 67
Where: The Carnival
What: The Ringmaster brings everyone she can back to the carnival after getting kicked out the Celebration, a bit worse for wear. Those that have resolved their threads at the Masquerade can start trickling over here as they sort things out.
Warnings: Angst, mostly likely, as well as potentially graphic injuries.

RETURNING HOME

About 45 minutes after the conflict with the vampires begins, the Ringmaster will finally show her face at the Masquerade - and immediately be mortified by what she sees. Though initially mostly confused by the fact that there's been problems over the week, and characteristically obtuse about what's going on, as soon as she realizes the severity of the threat she will launch into action. If the Host managed to miss the combat already going on, they won't be able to miss the Ringmaster tearing up the joint and looking for her people. She's quick to scoop up those that have managed to gather in the dining hall - but unfortunately her arrival seems to be the vampire's cue to retreat.

Her attempt to challenge the Host about this will result in the being finally losing their patience and banishing all the vampires and all of the carnival workers from the premises, forcing them back to the portals they arrived from and launching their remaining belongings out with them. The Ringmaster will be pretty fucking pissed off when they return (once again) and will tell everyone to take the time they need to recover, but to stick together and stay safe for the time being. She has a plan to chase down the carnival members that have been stolen, but it will take time.

► BEER PONG: Apparently the Ringmaster spent the entire week playing a nonstop game of beer pong, against several dozen of the Host's bodies. She hadn't quite won yet when the Masquerade began, so she was late. Whether or not she was caught up in the same spell as everyone else is up to interpretation, but the answer "definitely probably." She won, for the record.

► MISSING: Upon doing headcounts, it will turn out that all the supervisors are missing, as well as several regular workers - a few of which will have been spotted as freshly turned vampires during the fighting. Whether that was the point of the attack or not is unclear, but it's pretty clear that the Ringmaster is a little bit devastated about it - particularly about the supervisors. However, she will refuse to talk to anyone long enough to get into too many details.

► THE PLAN: The Ringmaster will announce that she intends to get everyone back - it's just a matter of figuring out their way back to the dimension they've been stolen off to. She guarantees that she will find it, but that it may take some time. In the end, the workers will have a total of two days to recover and plan - during the evening of Day 67, she will be leading a rescue mission to get them all back. You don't have to come, but lives do depend on its success.

Closed Pt.2

After talking to the Ringmaster Lauren returns to the trailer. He's hesitant to talk to Susan about what he's learned, but he knows he has to.

"Susan?"

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 04:57 am (UTC)(link)
Susan of course figured that Lauren just needed a little more time to rest on his own or something, so even though he didn't really want to leave, he didn't think too much of it (other than general worry for him, of course). So when Lauren finally comes in, Susan is just sitting on the bed, petting and talking to Fluff. Stanley's probably there too, on a pillow or something.

Susan looks up when Lauren comes in, smiling when he sees him.

"Hi."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:13 pm (UTC)(link)
He smiles back weakly, his new fangs showing as he does so. He looks to Stanley and Fluff, before returning his gaze to Susan. What the hell was he going to say.

"Hey."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Susan can tell that Lauren is a little unsure about something, but of course he doesn't know what it is. He hesitates a moment, looking back at the animals, before back to Lauren again.

"How are you feeling?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)

He shrugs. He felt better after talking to the Ringmaster. Well, he had felt better before he learned what Susan had done.

"Okay I guess."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:35 pm (UTC)(link)
He smiles again.

"Good! I'm glad, I was a little worried about you..." More than a little honestly, but now that Lauren is up and about he must be doing better.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:37 pm (UTC)(link)

He frowns, leaning against the closed door of their trailer.

"You don't have to worry about me."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"I know... And I'm not now that you're feeling better." He goes back to petting Fluff, before glancing back to Lauren again.

"You should come sit with us, we're talking about Fluff being a rat too. D'you think she'd be cute?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)

He hesitates before coming over, not sure if Fluff will react the same way as Stanley. Slowly, he sits down beside Susan.

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Fluff does sniff the air as he comes closer, but she's busy with this very important discussion with Susan, too busy to care much about that yet.

Susan laughs a little though before looking to Lauren.

"She says you smell funny."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)

He knocks Susan lightly with his shoulder, smiling just a little.

"Can't smell any worse than you."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"No, I smell great! You're the stinky one."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)

He smiles wider, before messing with Susan's hair.

"Why does she want to be a rat?"

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well... I don't know if she wants to, but we were just thinking about it 'cause of Stanley. It'd be kind of cute if they were both rats, right?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)

He nods, looking Fluff to Stanley.

"Yeah, it would."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 08:07 pm (UTC)(link)
He pets Fluff again, looking over to Stanley. After a minute he leans against Lauren.

"Too bad Stanley can't turn into a cat. That'd be even better... Cats are better to pet 'cause they're bigger."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-11 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)

He frowns.

"Rats are fun to pet."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-11 08:14 pm (UTC)(link)
"Not as fun as cats! Cats are bigger and they purr."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-12 12:00 am (UTC)(link)

Lauren shrugs, "But they're too big to carry around with you."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-12 12:01 am (UTC)(link)
"But you don't have to carry them because no one is gonna step on them or get scared 'cause they think cats are gross." Not that rats are gross either, but it's still a good reason to not just let your pet rat wander around.

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-12 12:17 am (UTC)(link)

"I like carrying Stanley." he comments with a small pout.

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-12 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
"Then maybe she could just be a small cat! Like a baby cat."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-12 12:23 am (UTC)(link)

"They're called kittens."

[personal profile] wild_magic 2017-03-12 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
"So? They're still baby cats."

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-03-12 06:35 am (UTC)(link)
He shakes his head, and laughs.

"It sounds weird if you call them that."
