[Carnival: Hannah & Zoe]

Who: Hannah & Zoe
What: Meetings!
Where: CARNEM's Carnival
When: Nowish
Warnings/Rating: Nope!

The carnival was alive.

It was a warm night, no rain and a pretty breeze to rustle the leaves and the carnival's many fairy lights, and every parking spot was filled. Sounds of wonder carried and carried through woods, and even nature listened. And the carnival itself was crowded tonight, with the Big Top packed in and performers performing with such perfection that it seemed surely, surely a dream. It was a fairytale collection of people, all interesting, all garbed in things from adult whimsy and childhood stories. It was a fantasyland hiding in the woods and incongrous.

Hannah... Amy... Hannah... Tonight, Hannah, because she needed to attempt to put her feet back in those shoes. Hannah was working outside the Big Top, wandering between the rides and food stalls and games. She was one of many, all walking about, interacting, being seen. There were no scripts, no words to say or lines to utter. She was just there to talk, to be, and the night was pretty, and she wore wings and green and tulle, and she glanced from face to face to face, seeking something and nothing at all, but she would know when she found it.

May. 26th, 2020





Hello, I am Audrey Carpenter, but I am pretty sure most of you know that. Um.

I'm not really sure what to write here, but I was told it'd be beneficial for everyone, so here goes:

My memory [...] isn't what it was. The doctors said it can happen after [...] unpleasant events. They're not sure when or if it will come back, but they'll be working with me closely over the next few months.

I get out of the hospital in a week or two, I'll be moving in somewhere with my cousin?. [...] I am going to be reading through old posts to try and see if it helps at all, and to re-familiarize myself as best as I can.

So, I guess this is a re-introduction of sorts, and so no one gets too confused if I don't recall who you are.


Also, thank you to everyone who looked for me and came to the hospital. I was told it was a lot. Oh, also. Whoever found me? Thanks. I can't remember your name.

For those of you who are wanting an update of Audrey Carpenter.

She has been found, she is currently at the hospital and is under observation until further notice. The hospital is not allowing anymore visitors other than family. I'll be at the hospital daily and if there is anything that anyone wishes for her to have, please let me know and I'll see to it that it's taken care of.

Thank you for all of your help and I'll do my best to keep everyone updated.

Mental: Holly NW/Noah NW, ETA: Call: Hugh C, Forum: Hannah S, Casey C

[During this. He already had his phone in-hand, but, the thought pops into his head. Hey, there?

Yeah, he was here. Holly doesn't hear Noah, so much as have his thoughts right there, in his head.]

Audrey? What the fuck? Are you okay? [He knows the dude is. Physically. And he knows how Holly's feeling, but it's reflex.] Do you want me to call Hugh or something?

ETA: [Call: Hugh C]
[Once he's done running, Noah tries to get the water inside, but is relegated to the waiting room. He decides to call Hugh. Ring.]

[Locked: Hannah M, Casey C]
[Locked separately.]

We found Audrey. She doesn't seem to remember any thing or who she is. She's at the hospital now


Jamie M, Si M, Rey S, Hugh C

[Locked to Jamie M]
Hi, Jamie. I think you're out of town? But when you're around, I kind of wanted to talk about something with you?

[Locked to Si M]
[Once she's back in Repose for a few days.] I think I found a good place. It feels good? Bright good. No dark shadows in the corners or bad feelings, and it's an apartment, so there isn't even a basement. Hi.

[Locked to Rey S]
Hi. I just wanted to thank you.

[Locked to Hugh C]
Hi. Has anything new happened? I'm back in town now.

Hi. Hugh? There's something wrong in the house, something bad, and I can't stay, but Audrey won't leave, and she can't stay here alone. Please help.



Could we not with the things that go bump in the night? Or the broad daylight for that matter.

[Nighttime: Hannah & David]

Who: Hannah and David
What: Walking home from Hugh's.
Where: Lands End, and into the Neighborhood.
When: After the party.
Warnings/Rating: D for David?

She'd danced and she'd danced, but mostly she'd watched and listened. She'd wandered the halls of the home she'd lived in for a tiny, tiny while, and then she'd found a chair and curled up in it. Among the throng, but apart, and she'd people watched until the night grew late and she grew sleepy.

She'd gone then, and outside was cool, but nice, and she was dressed for walking, and she hadn't been dressed for a party at all. And maybe she should be scared, since the streets were poorly lit and the long and winding walk back to the Neighborhood was a quiet and wood-lined thing. But she wasn't scared, and bad things didn't lurk behind trees. Monsters walked down sidewalks and in broad daylight, and the mistake the world made was to think bad lurked beneath the bed. Bad didn't lurk at all. Bad stood tall and proud, and it made itself look really, really trustworthy. Which wasn't too say there weren't non-alive, non-human monsters, but you kind of knew them when you saw them.

She'd known them nearly her whole entire life. Her life. Hers, because Rey had helped things become clearer, and clarity brought its own troubles. But right now, right now she was just walking home. She hummed to herself, nonsense and nothing, and the stars smiled down from a clear sky that offered no clouds for celestial games of hide and go seek.

Public, Ren S., Hannah S., Noah NW.

Tips on what you do when you're feeling a bit run down would really be appreciated right now.

[Ren S.]

Would you be okay if I took a few sick days? I'm not really feeling great and I just need some time to recoop. Especially after the weirdness

[Hannah S.]

If I gave you a list and my card would you mind doing the grocery shopping this weekend, please?

[Noah NW.]

I am soooooo tired. This isn't supposed to happen until my forties.

[Lakeside: Hannah/Rey]

Who: Hannah and Rey
What: The Force and an AI
Where: Rey's lakeside manor
When: Fuzzily once it ends, I think.
Warnings/Rating: Hannah's head?

Hannah was lost.

She knew where she was going, since she'd cleaned the house on the lake before, over and over, and the owners paid well, so it wasn't that she didn't know where her feet should go. But she'd been a little lost since the town was overrun with other people's lives, and it wasn't that she didn't know real from not real, but her own feelings were churned up, and the past was pirouetting in her mind. And when Rey offered to help, she accepted. She knew there were risks, and she had no idea if Rey would even be able to do anything. She, Hannah, was herself, and she knew she was, but maybe magic couldn't help someone who wasn't human. She had flesh, and she had blood, and she had all the organs and systems a real person had, but hers were synthetic, and maybe her mind was different, but she still wanted to try.

She would explain first, she decided, as she approached the house in soft layers, with a bag slung low. She would trust Rey, and she would explain, and if Rey thought it was a bad idea, then she would listen. But she wanted to try.

She knocked.
