⇨ HOME AGAIN

Who: Anyone!
When: Day 68 - Day 72
Where: Carnival grounds.
What: Everyone makes it back to the carnival after their adventure in hell. The Ringmaster makes a new lake to celebrate, apparently.
Warnings: A notable absence of torture.

TO HELL AND BACK

The rescuers and the liberated captives will emerge from the portal like bats out of hell. Much like their previous return, this arrival will be met with a flurry of medical activity as everyone gets their injuries seen to, particularly those that had been held prisoner within Morningstar's hell fortress. It will still be night when they arrive, and the rest of Day 68 will be clouded over completely, for the benefit of the new vampires as they get settled in. After the immediate panic is dealt with, the Ringmaster will disappear into the forest until the morning of Day 69. It will be raining off and on during her absence.

► RECOVERY: Unlike the last time, the Ringmaster will be supplying the carnival workers with some healing potions from her private hoard, given that most of the healers are already wounded or spent. Damage caused by iron poisoning will not be cured by healing magic or healing items though, unfortunately, and those who have spent a lot of time in contact with iron will take at least a week to fully recover. However, regular healing remedies like bandages and herbs may help speed things along if the patient is suited to them.

► A BRAND NEW LAKE: On the morning of Day 69, the Ringmaster will return the forest to announce that she's built a new lake into the carnival grounds, only a short trail's distance from the backyard. Unlike most of the forest, this area won't just lead you in circles when explored, meaning that it can actually be modified and developed as the workers see fit. The water is always clean and just the right temperature for swimming, though it gets a bit cooler the deeper you swim. At the far side of the lake, there is a warm, stone pathway leading up the side of the mountain, that will eventually take you to some bangin' hot springs. Brought to you mostly because the Ringmaster doesn't know how to say sorry with actual words. At least it gives you something to play with while you try to shake off the trauma.

► FRUITS OF VICTORY: On Day 70, all the workers who came to hell for the rescue mission will be given a gift from the Ringmaster. Each of them will receive a bright green, glowing seed, about the size of your thumbnail. She will tell you that, when planted, the seeds will swiftly grow into a small citrus tree, which will grow fruits with regenerative properties. More details about these plants will be written up in a separate post, but for now your characters can ogle them and decide if they are going to plant them or not.

► TAKE ME TO CHURCH: Staring on Day 71, the Ringmaster will be starting to work on removing the vampirism from those infected with it, which apparently involves a lot of... meditation? She will take the newbie vampires out into a shady area of the forest and encourage them to look inside themselves and attempt to separate themselves spiritually from their demonic beasts. How well you character masters her teachings over time will determine whether or not she is ultimately capable of stripping out your demon soul and returning you to life. Of course, not all demons are made equal, and some will be more difficult to separate than others...

A.

Pretty much the instant after the mind control had been lifted, Peridot had passed out.

It was likely a sort of disturbing affair to witness; one minute she was awake and snarling, struggling against the bindings that Amethyst and Steven had gotten around the uncooperative gem, and then the next? Bam. Out like a light, slumped over in a heap.

Her physical form was still intact, and there didn't seem to be anything wrong with her... Odds are, it hadn't taken a doctor to figure out that she just desperately needed to rest. Having someone else in her mind like that for such a prolonged period of time had left her defeated, spent, and the second that connection was severed, she'd basically no choice but to shut down for a while.

Given that she is in no danger otherwise, she's been left to sleep in her trailer and allowed to wake up in her own time. It's probably strange, though, seeing someone who is otherwise typically such a bastion of unstoppable hyperactive energy sleeping for multiple days without waking for even a single moment. During that time, Peridot has kept on snoozing hard, curled up with her head on her arms and her tail dangling off the side of the bed. Like a good dog, Pumpkin joins her from time to time, snuggling up to keep her company.

Sometime in the afternoon on the third straight day of this, she finally stirs, groaning and blinking blearily.

She's still not totally recovered, nor does she feel particularly compelled to get out of bed immediately. The mental exhaustion she's suffering from is still prevalent, not to mention the physical exhaustion from the exposure to so much iron... But she is awake, and alive, and once the word spreads, she will be availible to take visitors in her trailer.

She'll... probably need a lot of stuff explained. The whole incident is mostly a blur.

On day 72, Peridot can also be found exploring the new lake area. She still seems rather uncharacteristically fatigued, but she is at least up and about and around the grounds once more, which is a good step forward.

Honestly, she could probably do with a trip to the hot springs, if you're inclined to pitch the idea to her.

Lapis is naturally a bit of a defeatist, and a pessimistic one at that. She knows what it's like to just... Shut Down for awhile, to take time to recover and recuperate after you've been locked away. Even more so when it's in your own mind.

That doesn't mean she likes it though. She relies on the energy that Peridot brings into her life no matter how she no sells it sometimes, and seeing the other Gem sleep like this when she'd normally be loud and energetic about something makes Lapis feel weird. She doesn't like it at all, but she knows that rest is a pretty important thing for someone who's been through a lot.

Combined with her weird new habits, she more or less drapes herself over Peridot and purrs. No, she doesn't know why, but she feels like maybe it should make her feel better? Pumpkin is curled up against Peridot as well.

kingsroads: (just sort of huffy and taken aback)

Jonathan Strange | ota!

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-03-20 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
a: day 68-9, goddamn moron's gonna catch a cold
Normally Strange is the sort to be a little grumpy about rain. After all, any one can do weather magic, it's nothing special, what's so good about rain anyway. However, going from the indoors Celebration to the equally indoors hell dimension has made Strange realize just how much he likes things like 'trees' and 'rain' and 'a nice breeze'. So, he's spending as much time outside as possible. This also means that he's soaking wet due to the fact that it's raining.

He's picked up a couple of healing potions from the Ringmaster and is in theory trying to help but in practice being a bit of a bother. So sorry random people trying to recover or patch up those who need recovery, have a magician in your way. Do you need a bit of the healing potion? What's that sort of herb, do you need more of it grown, he can certainly help out with that. Of course he can make it stop raining around this area for a moment, there's no need to ask!

b: day 71, old habits die hard
Someday Strange will learn not to default to 'creepy spying' as a way to figure things out. Today isn't that day. Because there's something going on with the newbie vampires in the forest and that's interesting so Strange wants to find out what it is (and heaven forbid we do something like talking to people). So, creepy magical spying via his slightly dented and beat-up basin it is.

Strange is sitting on the grass behind his trailer--apparently he still doesn't want to go inside. The basin, filled with water sits next to him as Strange looks in it, frowning slightly as he scribbles down what he sees. As a shadow passes over the basin, Strange doesn't look up but instead grumbles to whoever's come to see just what one of the resident eccentrics is doing,

"You're in my light."

"Sorry."

One of the newbie vampires in question shuffles to the side a little until he's no longer obscuring the diffuse light penetrating the cloud cover. He watches Strange blandly for a few long moments.

"What are you doing?"

Ash | OTA

[personal profile] amusicaladventure 2017-03-20 10:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Day 68

[After kicking ass forward and back through Hell, after the burning anger and righteous excitement all wore off, Ash is -- well, actually pretty manic. The whole thing has left her bouncy, all grins, and of course, musical. So whatever somber event or miserable post-traumatic huddling is going on tends to get interrupted by a jaunty little guitar tune and a catgirl downright skipping through, bringing the music with her voice.]

A fellow came along and tried to knock me flat.
Everybody told me, son you can't fight that,
But whoa I knew I was good.
Wop bob doodly bop, I showed them I could.

A fellow started drumming with a rat-tat-tat.
A fellow told me sonny boy you can't beat that,
But whoa I knew I was good.
And oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, I showed them I could.

You know you gotta be someone.
You gotta be strong.
When you got the goods,
You know you can't do anything wrong.

A fellow came along in a big top hat.
Said sonny boy you know you can't top that,
But whoa I knew I was good.
And oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, I showed them I could.

Oh-oh I knew I was good.


Day 69

[So Ash hasn't changed her opinion about the Ringmaster one bit. In fact, this all confirms it: the woman has absolutely no relation to mortal thoughts that anyone can possibly draw. A lake. Honestly.]

[This doesn't stop Ash from enjoying it, though, which means no sooner does the lake pop up than Ash strolls on up there in her bathing suit, a towel slung over her shoulder and a look of delight on her face when she spots it.]
atouts: (036; two of pentacles)

[personal profile] atouts 2017-03-23 02:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Sorry, Ash, some people are eternal critics and Childermass happens to be one of those. Aside from resting, which he finds he's terrible at doing anyway, he's taken to the cookhouse for a little more space and some shelter from the rain outside to have coffee and try and set down some thoughts in one of his little notebooks.

Thoughts thoroughly interrupted by... singing? Really? Looking up, he realizes it's the cat, so, of course, singing, really.

Well, he wasn't getting anything written, anyway, but he'll still comment.
]

Keep that up and someone with a headache may very well try to knock you flat.

[ Not him, but you never know. ]

destiny_key: (Er...)

Sora | ota

[personal profile] destiny_key 2017-03-20 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Day 68-69; Gimme a Break

As soon as the group leaves the hell dimension, whatever was left of Sora's energy is completely gone. He's been on high alert since they were thrown in the neonate pit, hasn't eaten in days, spent all his magic on helping others, got more than his fair share of injuries (which have mostly since healed), and he is exhausted.

Sora wants to help, really he does, but he'll just be in the way in his current state. And so, after some pushing, he goes back to his and Rin's trailer, gets out of his bloody clothes, and passes out for a while.

Day 69-70; What Do

After something to eat (ew), a shower, and a change of clothes, Sora's feeling much more like himself. Or rather, as much like himself as he can. He's totally got this vampire thing under control. Totally.

He can't leave the trailer without an umbrella, but he found one somewhere and is now cheerfully walking around the carnival, chatting to friends, exploring the new lake, and generally doing his job of helping everyone he sees.

He's also on a mission, to find and apologize everyone he turned and everyone that Xabat hurt. It's a decently sized list; better get started.

Day 71; I'LL WORSHIP LIKE A DOG AT THE SHRINE OF YOUR LIES

At even the slightest hint from the Ringmaster about curing the vampirism, Sora comes running. He hates drinking blood and not being able to go out in the sun. It's not a pun when he says being a vampire suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

Meditation is... not really what he had in mind for a cure, but he'll take it. It... might take him a while. Give him a break, he's trying his best.
blueblaze: (185 T_T)

Day 69

[personal profile] blueblaze 2017-03-22 06:01 pm (UTC)(link)
A yelping scream and a small burst of blue flame cuts trough the silence of the night in the trailer. Rin is awake, very suddenly, sweat plastering his hair to his forehead and dampening his sheets and bedclothes. His sudden wakefulness is enough to scare the besjeus out of Kuro, who jumps four feet straight up in that ridiculous way that cats do when they're startled.

Rin breathes heavily and throws the covers off so he can get out of bed. He's trying to be quiet, but that scream was probably enough to startle even the deepest sleeper awake.

zebrarhyme_everytime: (ominous)

[personal profile] zebrarhyme_everytime 2017-03-20 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Day 68.

The Zecora that walked among the carnival was an absolutely horrific sight. Her tail was gone, with only a bright pus-streaked wound in its place on her hindquarters -- the best it had looked in a while, thanks to the Ringmaster's potions. Another pair of wounds, on the top and bottom of her muzzled, had scabbed over. Her every step was shuddering and tremulous... not just because she was terribly weak, although she very much was, but because her whole body seemed tenebrous and smoky, with faint puffs of dark gas erupting from her body with every step.

She was spending everything she had to keep it together. Literally.

And of course, this being Zecora, her first concern was for the rest of the carnival. whom she moved among, checking on them, offering what help she could to them with her magic. Those who are obviously hurt especially have a zebra pacing their slow way.

Day 71

By now, Zecora had improved immensely, thanks to her own potions and brews. The infection had left her system, her tail was slowly blossoming back to its original length, and her body no longer shook like a leaf in a storm. Though her muzzle wounds were healing far slower, thanks to being inflicted by puncturing iron, nonetheless Zecora felt herself enough that today, for the first time since Atlantis, the medical tent opened for business once again.
whattaprick: (crap did i break a nail)

day 68, but since last thread's still resolving, gonna keep the lead-up vague? lmk if that's cool!

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-03-22 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
"You're terrible at listening to your own advice," Lambert offered lazily, from where he's currently sitting outside the medical tent. He'd found a turned over crate to perch on and watch the comings and goings of the ill and injured. With iron-inflicted wounds not healing as easily as they should, there was plenty to do that a witcher equipped with two hands, a needle and thread, and an array of poultices could help with where magic couldn't.

One of the downsides to having an assistant the zebra couldn't have foreseen: someone to nag at her to actually take a break, for once.

sunflowerfields: (In my dreams)

Hinawa | OTA

[personal profile] sunflowerfields 2017-03-21 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
A: Sunburn of the dead

At some point after everyone returns, Hinawa's hands are unbound and she ends up with a healing potion and a complimentary flask of, er, pig's blood. She knows this because she woke up in her trailer the following morning cradling both in her free hands. The potion and the blood combined help to make her feel a little less like a walking corpse (except technically she still IS a walking corpse sooo) and she's able to clean herself up and get dressed. The hunger is still there, but it feels muted, like she has enough willpower to keep it down instead of right beneath her skin like it's been for the last days.

It's nice outside this morning, and in an attempt to feel like a normal, functioning person again, Hinawa heads outside to go to work. The sun on her skin feels...

...Not so good. Terrible, in fact. Burning, even.

With a yelp, Hinawa steps back under an awning. She cautiously sticks her arm out into the sunlight, but pulls it back when the burning feeling returns. How is she supposed to get to the cookhouse now?

"Excuse me!" She calls out to anyone passing by. "Does the sun feel a bit... too hot to you?"

B: Cooking of the dead

When she finally gets to the cookhouse, Hinawa goes straight to work, because otherwise she'll have to stop and think about how real food smells like nothing and tastes like ash on her tongue. She's lugging a sack of rice to the kitchen when it splits open unexpectedly, spilling its contents all over the floor. Now, a normal person would have gone and retrieved a broom and a dustpan, but Hinawa immediately drops to all fours and begins picking up each grain individually and placing it back inside the sack. If you listen carefully you can hear her counting under her breath.

This might take a while.

C: Meditation of the dead

Hinawa sits on a tree stump, her feet planted on the ground and hands draped in her lap. Her eyes are closed.

She can't concentrate because she has to remind herself to breathe.

She tries to follow the instructions. She tries to empty her mind, but it's still invaded by terrible thoughts. I have died. I am a monster. I am an aberration. And then there's the hunger deep inside her, growling and growing stronger.

She places a hand on her chest and feels nothing, still. It's not right, to be walking around with no heartbeat. It goes against nature to not have to breathe. She was starting to accept magic, but this? This is evil, it's wrong.

The Ringmaster said it could be expelled, but Hinawa is starting to lose hope. Maybe it's too late for her. Maybe she's stuck being this abomination forever. A tear rolls down her cheek, and it would've been easy to miss had it not been made of blood.

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-03-21 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
Said passerby is Strange, walking back to his trailer after someone told him no, we're good, your help really isn't needed here, please bother someone else. As he hears Hinawa's voice, he turns towards her. There's something familiar about that woman...something familiar that the magic of the masquerade combined with Strange's own denseness isn't putting together right now. So, at her question, he shakes her head.

"Not entirely," he admits before connecting the dots and ah, wait, she's probably a vampire, no wonder the sun feels hot to her. Strange looks apologetic for a moment before continuing as if he didn't accidentally put his foot in his mouth a little bit. "Of course, if you feel it's too hot, I can easily change that. Weather magic is quite simple—it's one of the first branches of magic I've mastered."

He takes a step back and looks up at the sky before looking back at Hinawa. "Would you like it overcast or rainy?"

cuckooed: (*sigh*)

Koel Babic | OTA

[personal profile] cuckooed 2017-03-21 01:34 am (UTC)(link)
Recuperate

Koel is... she has been better. The position she was given by Lambert helped, but she was hardly in any condition to move, much less cook. She is confined hence to her cabin once she is properly given potion.

It is utterly boring while waiting for her to recover enough to get back to work. That is probably why her door is open. Please, come on in. The company (and updates on the cookhouse's condition) is much appreciated.


Recalibrate

By Day 71, she is well enough to walk. Or, well, limp slowly, pitifully and painfully. The iron's effects are not so easily dispelled no matter how many potions she was given, no doubt the intention of the vampires. But she'd be damned if she didn't help those who were now vampires.

So, walk she does, straight to the cookhouse, several books in hand. It takes forever, and she has to stop many times, but she gets there. Those who come there will find her, looking like a little grandmother once more, quietly looking through each page, folding the corners of pages as she does. The books look like cookbooks, but at least one has very odd, almost satanic symbols on it. Several others look much older, and bounding an unknown type of covering.

She looks up, at the incoming presence. Her voice is like a frog.

"Ah. Just on time. I...need an opinion on something."

Now that the kitchen staff is back, there hasn't been any need for Greg to stick around, but he made a habit to pop in and see if they needed any help while those who'd gotten captured stayed in recovery. There wasn't much else he was helpful for in the aftermath.

"Oh! Ahh, sure--what can I help you with?"

Seeing Koel back in the kitchen is a minor surprise and a major relief. She's no spring chicken, after all, so Greg wasn't sure how long it would take for her to get back on her feet.

GONGENZAKA | OTA

[personal profile] otoko 2017-03-21 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Clouded Thoughts | Day 68]

[On Day 68, Gongenzaka finds his attentions grimly upon the skies above. Once everyone was safely returned to the Carnival, he found himself fortunately among those who did not need as much medical attention-hardly for lack of involvment in the battle, but either way. There were others who needed it more, particularly with his own temporary advantages.

He tries to keep to himself however-he does not return to his trailer, not yet, but instead finds himself staring at the sky, and their clouds....quite aware of why they are there.

It is strange to see the sky like this, particularly during the day. His ears fold back at the thought of the reason why, and the bloodstains over his somewhat ripped ball clothing are a strong reminder on top of it all.
]

[Cleared Minds | Day 71]

[Meditation is not what he expected. Gongenzaka listens well to the instructions that the Ringmaster gives however, and the more he listens the more he wonders if perhaps he has done at least a little already-as much as he could, he had meditated in those tunnels. Done all he was able to focus, focus on himself, and his thoughts, and what made him...him. He'd lasted for some time before crumbling under starvation.

Now that he's in no danger of starving, and now that he has more guidance, well...

He sits. He focuses. And he searches deep, deep within with renewed strength, ready to face the demon that has made its home in his soul.

renzo shima, ota

[personal profile] perverses 2017-03-21 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
a. day 69 - 70, recovery

Yeah, after an adventure like that? Shima lasted about five paces away from the return portal, where he summarily dismissed the giant bull-headed demon made of black fire that followed him out of hell (thankfully on their side and totally not a demon from that hell), then proceeded to take the sixth step and immediately collapse from exhaustion. Not... exactly a heroic return. Seriously, seriously not, but you can't win them all, right?

The next time he wakes up will be in the medical tent, a place he is not that thrilled to see but will admit it's a step up from waking up back in vampire hell or somewhere similarly awful. He squints — all three eyes, the third in his forehead having been a parting gift of his Celebration mask — and pushes himself up to sit on the cot someone had dumped him on at some point. Kind of them, yeah?

"Uh," he starts groggily, looking around the tent for anyone else awake or hanging around. The light, even in a dim tent like his one, makes him grimace. A headache as bad as his right now tolerates pretty much nothing. "Please tell me I haven't been out for, like, a week or something."

b. day 71, hot springs, HOTS SPRINGS

Demon-summoning induced headaches aside, Shima is happily accepting a whole lake as an apology from the Ringmaster. Sure, they all almost died and everything was horrible, but! He doesn't really hold grudges. Besides, the lake was great, but when he finds the hot springs?

Well, they aren't technically deep enough to cannonball into, but he will immediately strip to his boxers (typically, he would ditch those, too, but he will at least attempt modesty in case there are girls around, just this once) and leap in with a loud whoop and a huge splash, absolutely disregarding anyone else who may already be in there. So, there's a possibility you are about to get comfortably hot water in the face. There's also a possibility Shima's the first one there and already lounging happily in the springs.

In the case of the latter, he'll offer a cheery wave and a huge grin.

"Water's perfect! You goin' to stand there all day or are you coming in?"

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-03-21 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
Splash goes the water right on Lambert's face, waking him right the hell up where he was starting to nod off (never mind that sleeping in such hot water is a terrible idea in the first place) where the whoop didn't even register. In any case, it nets Shima an immediate reaction:

"Fuck!" He jerks awake, hand automatically reaching for his swords -- except no, he's shirtless and he left one at his trailer and the other melting sadly away into a pit of lava, so that's not going to work. He blinks owlishly at the source of the intrusion, then snorts, leaning back against the rock.

"Oh, it's just you."

Lambert | OTA

[personal profile] whattaprick 2017-03-21 04:58 am (UTC)(link)
medical tent

Lambert's skills are entirely useless for dealing with anything seriously life-threatening, unless you want to risk ingesting one of his potions (perhaps luckily for everyone, he's out of those right now anyway). However, if you've got broken bones or iron-inflicted injuries that need addressing, he's got two steady hands and basic medical supplies, and he's set up shop on one end of the medical tent, away from where more grievous injuries are being tended. He's wrapped bandages and a splint around a couple of the fingers on his off-hand, and he has recently-healed-over bites and scratches on his forearms, but he doesn't seem to be moving with any pain.

"What hurts?" is the matter-of-fact question he'll ask anyone peeking into the tent to seek assistance. "If you got turned, I have no idea how to fix that, so you're on your own there." As far as triage goes, it's not the most thorough or even most compassionate effort, but it's a place to start at least?

lakeside & hot springs
Once the lake is in place, it's not terribly long before Lambert can be found standing on its shore, staring out at the clear water with a thoughtful expression and a slightly manic glint in his eye brighter than the sunlight shining off the edges of his newly-acquired golden horns

"Damn, wish I had my boat," he says unprompted. Sorry, random passerby, you're being accosted into conversation now. "I could've gone fishing."

Are there even fish to be had in the lake? Well, that would be the point of getting in a boat and finding out. The Lambert method of fishing, though, is a particularly explosive one, so maybe it's for the best that's not an option right now...

Later, he can be found soaking away his aches in the hot springs -- nearly dozing off in the heat, really, which leaves him sweating and red in the face, but damn does it do a body good, after the workout it's been put through. Submerged to the neck in water, his one grudging concession to modesty has been to keep his breeches on.

"Could have used one of these at Kaer Morhen," he says drowsily, head tipped back enough to rest against the edge of the pool behind him. "Would have made getting our asses kicked worth it." He doesn't seem to have realized he's spoken, caught halfway to slipping off into an unintended nap.

gardening
Lambert doesn't have a boat, but he does have a shovel he scavenged from somewhere, and too much restless energy to burn off at this point. He's taken tent poles and string, using them to stake out a roughly rectangular area beside the lake shore, and he's now attacking the ground like he has a personal vendetta against it, breaking up the soil and turning it over. The recent rains mean the ground is soft, and it leaves his pants and boots streaked with mud, but he doesn't seem to mind.

Eventually, he'll end up with three elevated garden plots and a small, raised mound. The last one is what he digs a hole in with his thumb and drops the glowing seed from the Ringmaster into, using a hand to absently pat the dirt back over it. Task done, he leans on his shovel and surveys his handiwork critically.

"Well, it's a start."

"TELL me about it," Ash said, more of a groan than anything from where she was submerged up to her neck nearby. Her voice held a distinct rumbling undercurrent of a purr, that continued on even when she wasn't speaking. "This is better than a Jacuzzi, even. What were you getting your ass kicked at Care Morehens for?"

raynos: ([contemplative pause])

Jamie, OTA

[personal profile] raynos 2017-03-21 06:14 am (UTC)(link)
A: Day 68, early morning
Once everyone is home, Jamie just kind of stands around for a little while, at a loss. He's not injured, aside from the whole undead thing; doesn't want to waste time and resources that someone else needs more, and he doesn't want to be poked and prodded right now anyway, so he heads back toward the trailers in a numb haze, unaware of anyone in his path until he nearly runs into them.

He's frayed enough that he wants to snap at them to move, but honestly that would require energy he doesn't have, so he merely mumbles an apology, eyes downcast, stepping aside to let them pass.

B: Day 68 or later
He doesn't realize just how long he's been indoors until he exits his trailer and turns his eyes up to the overcast sky. He needs that sky, in a way he can't understand, and he wanders into the forest as though hypnotized, standing amongst the tall, swaying trees with his head tipped back.

The branches of the forest canopy still make him feel closed in; subconsciously, he's unused to seeing a sky framed by trees, craves the familiarity of the open desert sky, and he feels a stab of frustration and loss at being denied it. The closest thing he can manage now is a higher point of view with fewer obstructions.

So he picks a tree - a smallish one - and tries to figure out how to climb it. He's never actually done so before, though, so after clambering up a rock nearby he just sort of throws himself at the trunk, scrabbles frantically trying to get a grip on it and then falls, landing hard on his back in the dead pine needles and other litter on the forest floor. And right at someone's feet.

He cranes his head back to look at them, upside-down. "I just...wanted to get higher," he says vaguely, as though this explains his current position.

C: Day 71 onward
He didn't know trying to be calm would be so stressful.

Jamie's not given to relaxing easily under the best of circumstances, and the knowledge that being able to do so now means the difference between being a normal person again and spending the rest of his existence with a demon living inside him lends the proceedings an urgency that isn't conducive to attaining the appropriate level of chill.

He moves restlessly around the carnival grounds, trying to find the right setting in which to search his soul, or whatever. These settings may include: behind your trailer, under your trailer, the adjacent seat of a table you just chose to sit at, or your work area. He also might be muttering to himself, less quietly than he thinks he is: "Who am I, who am I, who am I, who am I..."

D: Wildcard

A

A hand grips Jamie's shoulder, keeping him from stepping too far off. The grip is firm, but gentle, and is accompanied with a breathless and startled voice.

"Jamie."

He'd been dozing off in his trailer before hearing about the returning group, and thought to rush back to the cookhouse--can't heal, can't fight, but can make good on that promise to feed people. He'd sort of assumed everyone would still be holed up in the nurse's tent again, though, instead of wandering around.

"You made it back."
