As Gamzee pocketed his SFC, a screech ripped through the night. He glanced up, impassively, to the young woman who stood at the end of the alleyway. Her eyes were wide as she screamed, but she was too petrified to move. A sharp grin suddenly cut over Gamzee's face and a weapon was within his hand in a second -- a lance this time -- advancing on her.

The screaming stopped with a sudden, sickening gurgle.

This body was not left behind however. Instead, he grabbed it, dragging it behind him as he moved to the carnival. In his wake, he left a red smear on the pavement and sharply smiling clown faces doodled on the walls amongst his bloody hand prints.

Finally, all the toxic effects of the slime had vanished from his body. Finally he-- THEY knew who they were and what they had to do. What they should've done all along. Finally there was nothing getting in the way anymore, no slime, no hole in his head, no fog, no idiot.

He dropped the body just outside the carnival quadrant without any concern. Its purpose had run out, its blood run dry. It hadn't even been the right shade of red.

Soon all the right shades would drip from his fingers. Soon.

The attendant at the ticket booth got no farther than "ticket pl-" before his club cracked her skull. Fucking gutterbloods. Getting all their fucking filth over his clubs. It was no matter. Soon he'd wash them clean in something slightly more deserving.

He giggled, then laughed as if this was just one huge private joke to him -- them. Maybe it was. Maybe everything had been a joke all along.

Now all they had to do was wait for the motherfucking punchline to arrive.

"Huge bitch, bluh bluh." Those very words kept ringing in her ears while she flew towards the bloody carnival, tempting her to stop and go back because ultimately, it's not worth it. They've always told her she was crazy, that she was a heartless little bitch that cared for no one else but herself. Her hate was too fake for a proper caliginious quadrant, and red ones? Ha, the very thought was ludicrous. They hated her. They warned other people about how dangerous she was, and how making friends with her was a death wish in itself. They took Tavros away from her because they thought she wanted to kill him (she did, but she wasn't going to).

But despite all this, she cared about these people. At least, that was what she told herself. For the first time in her life, she was acting out of unselfish emotions, not ones fueled by self interest, and it was weird. As she neared the carnival, she asked herself: what was she going to fight for?

Tavros' adorable stutters, Ryoji's bright, cheery smile, John's ramblings, Terezi's cackles and Karkat's rants flashed in her mind, and while she'd never admit it, it was clear. Those were good enough reasons.

This had to stop.

She fluttered down, a few meters away from Gamzee with her dice in hand. She wasn't grinning and laughing anymore.

"Hey, clown. Didn't you hear? The carnival's closing early."

this is beautiful. ilu. <333

[ ... So. Have you ever had one of those moments you've walked in on something you PROBABLY shouldn't have?

He just had one of those moments. What... was he even watching? What had happened? Vriska had left a message on his voicemail about leaving, so... he followed her. Silently, slipped out of the dorms, and ran into Gamzee and her fighting. That was the first unexpected thing.

The second was seeing the cerulean blood come from his friend. ]


V... Vriska?

I had this opened for the longest time and forgot to send it :'|a

[ She didn't know how she got herself into this situation. Nepeta was with Sollux just minutes before, but she had gotten distracted and he had gotten lost and now she didn't know where he was or where she was.

It didn't begin to cause her panic until she realized that while she didn't know where she was, she wasn't alone anymore. ]


Uhm.. [ Tentatively, she spoke with a grin on her face; surely, Gamzee was still the Gamzee she knew, right? After all- Karkat was just a little worrycat and Sollux was Gamzee's moirail and there was still sopor slime in the Nostalgia Nook. There wasn't anything to be afraid of, right? ]

Hi, TC! Are you enjoying the carnival?

This is going to be horrible

Oh Kingdom Hearts, what the hell is this? Part of him was getting a very bad feeling from that 'invitation'. Obviously he had to check it out. What he expected was just fingerpaint on the walls. What he saw was a chilling trail of red and an unconscious--probably dead woman slumped over in the ticket booth at the end of that path. What he got was a rather sick feeling in the pit of his gut and the faint taste of bile in the back of his throat. Just what the hell was going on here?

What the hell was going on and why?

"Gamzee!?"

Sorry for the late- my internet refused to work yesterday. >_<

[To tell the truth, Yomiel didn't really liked carnivals. But he was bored and so he had went on to check the thing out. As suspected, the event was merely a mild amusement, and so Yomiel was heading out, intending to walk around the city like he always did at midnight- he couldn't sleep, after all.]

[But now he had the sense somebody was following him. He couldn't be certain, but...was that a honk in the distance? And now that he was listening, he could hear a faint scream as well.]


Who's there?

[Tavros? Well, Tavros had gotten Vriska's message and was surprised at it. And somewhat worried. Okay, not somewhat. Tavros was really worried.

But Tavros wasn't sure why he came here. Especially not after Gamzee's...message.

Speaking of his friend. ...Is that Vriska's...hoodie? And Nepeta's hat? Plus some other accessories that Tavros isn't sure that Gamzee had before...]


G-gamzee?

[Yes, he does sound frightened.]

Terezi Pyrope & Dave Strider


The red smears across the starbeast's screen were what first grabbed Terezi Pyrope's attention. The invitation was scrawled rather messily, making it difficult for her to decipher it with her tongue, and it took her a few good, long licks to get the message. "Dark carnival"? ":o)"? There was no mistaking the owner of that laughter, which made the rest pretty easy to figure out.

Dave had told her about Gamzee's previous sober smackdown. Wasn't Sollux supposed to be keeping an eye--

Oh. Right. Sollux was having problems of his own at the moment, wasn't he?

As if she could turn down such an invitation! Frankly, she hadn't been all that happy with the clown since his encounter with Dave two weeks prior. But when she arrived at the carnival quadrant and inspected the crime scene, the full scope of the situation was finally realized...

There was a murderer on the loose.

Be that as it may, she couldn't afford to deploy her skilled team of investigators. She only had one Scalemate on her, anyway. Since the blood was still semi-fresh, the perpetrator was probably close by. There was no other option than to find him and bring him to justice...

Keeping her nose and ears sharp, Terezi crept around a corner... she was surprised that she could still make out his scent amidst the coppery stench of human blood.

He was here.

[And around that corner, Terezi would bump right into Dave if she wasn't careful. He also came looking-- why? He wasn't sure. Some fucked up sense of justice, perhaps? Or a morbid curiosity about the whole thing? Still, he's prepared with a ninja sword in his hand -- and not a cheap one too. He found it in one of the shops in the Nostalgia Nook and decided to keep it just in case something like this happened.]

Wha-- Oh.

[Huh. Terezi was here. He couldn't yet decide if this was good or bad but he was sure he was going to stick with her now that he found her here.]

I am sorry to inform you, but I'm not interested in speaking with you at the moment, Dave.
And am certainly in no mood to put up with any of your harassment today.
