No Cameras - No Weapons - No Holy Water
In all the time you've been alive, there has been strife and destruction. The world has been in danger, and you have worked your hardest with your friends and family to stop it. Anyone that has gone through such hardship deserves a break, and a "carnival" sounds about right.
The carnival is wonderful. Bright lights, music, and food. You wander further and further in, following the row of lights until you notice the shops around you are... different. The faces of the shopkeepers have a demonic tint to them, and their wares cast shadows of human flesh and bone. The scent changes - once heavy with food and dust, it now smells of rotten garbage and graves. Suddenly, the lights around you shatter, leaving you in the darkness.
This is when you realize you are alone - not even the venders remain - and the product for sale is truly a human hand...
Welcome to the Carnivals! Carnival Diabolique and Carnival Noir are two connected yet unrelated multi-fandom roleplays. Unlike many other multi-fandom roleplays, the characters were not sucked in from their own world, but rather knew they were going there. Whether they went of their own free will or their friends forced them to go is your own choice given it'd fit the character.
Everything started out fine... but now your character is alone. And the Carnivals are filled with monsters, from sharp-toothed clowns to knife-wielding carnies. The exit is there, but the exit keeps moving. In fact, everything keeps moving. Two days ago, the infirmary may have been next to the Merry-Go-Round in the middle but now it's next to the electrified fence on the edge of the property. There are safe places, but they're not what you think.
The plan isn't to get out. It's to survive.
New characters, characters on hiatus, and characters from dead roleplays are welcome. Interaction between the LJ and IJ Carnivals is welcome; keeping the two separate is welcome. Come, join the dark crack. It might give you an idea about what to do with the character you've had on hiatus for months.
And please, make sure you read the rules! The general ones are there, true, but the Carnivals have some unique rules, including the interaction between the different journaling sites.
