Pierrot's Carnival

A Carnival is coming to town!  With clowns, and dancing ladies, and freaks!  What fun this carnival.  And if there is a hint of something sinister at it's core, well that's only to be expected.  After all, it is a Carnival.
Obscurejones

Pierrot hops out of the engine car and gets to work setting up tents.
Who

Some of the odder looking toys are first out.

"Need a hand boss?"
Obscurejones

Wouldn't mind it.  Could you boys get the rides up?
Who

"No worries."

They set out doing as ordered. Erou still sleeps.
Obscurejones

Pierrot rolls out a fence establishing the perimeter of the carnival and making sure no one can just walk in without paying.
Who

Jacks hopped out and starts banging on people's doors to get them out of the carriages.
Obscurejones

Satisfied that the fence will stand Pierrot goes to the main entrance and hangs a colorful banner advertising  "A Delightful Time For One And All:  Pierrot's  Carnival.".
Who

"So what's the first order of business boss?"
Obscurejones

Advertising.  I'll head into town and see If I can't drum up some business.
(Should it be just some town or Town?)
Who

"Righto. Want anyone to come with you?"

((Your call))
Obscurejones

What's that old doll's name?
(Debating...  on the one hand fun, on the other hand Town is somewhat jaded.)
Who

"She won't give us one."
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
Send her out.
(Let's try generic to start and ease into Town.  SO it's on their schedule but not their current stop.)
Who

He hops off, returning with her a few minutes later.

"What do you want me for?"
Obscurejones

Bait.  
He crooks a finger for her to follow and shifts into a brilliant red coat and suit decorated with his usual pattern of diamonds, as he walks into the town.
Who

"Oh no, you are not using me for that."
Obscurejones

You only have to dance and smile.  In fact if you do anything else I'll be royally pissed.
He keeps walking.
Who

"Why don't you get your girlfriend to do it?"
Obscurejones

Because she's not our dancer.
He's nearly gone.
You are.
Who

She shifts and spindles after him.

"Nice to see she isn't getting any special treatment."
Obscurejones

He shakes his head.
As human as possible.  We're baiting not scaring.
Who

She shifts to doll. Walking beside him.

"Better?"
Obscurejones

Much.  I'm thinking some thing light for the dance.  Any ideas?
The road they're on leads to the main market square of the town.
Who

She starts into a light, flowing kind of dance.

"This?"
Obscurejones

Works for me.
As she dances he works his way through the crowd, handing out fliers and free passes.
The Amazing Porcelain Ballerina.  She and other wonders of the far world will be on display this evening at Pierrot's Carnival.  We open at sunset and are located on the edge of town for three nights only.
Who

She keeps up the dancing, following behind Pierrot

((Who's in charge of the people?))
Obscurejones

Remember folks this is a limited engagement.  Marvels all but only for the next three nights.
Finished with his spiel he moves to walk back out of town.
(Both?  Individuals to their creator?)
Who

She dances back behind him.

"Quite the showman."
Obscurejones

I try.  He keeps walking back to the carnival.
Who

She stops dancing and just walks.

"So what exactly is your whore doing?"
Obscurejones

I don't know yet.  She's fun at times but I want to keep that entertainment to myself.
Who

"Never had much brains."
Obscurejones

He stops suddenly.
Are you trying to agitate me, or express your annoyance at coming in second?
Who

"Hit a sore spot have I? You're just mad that your girlfriends a moronic ditz."
Obscurejones

Answer the question
Who

(That must have been a bitch to do)

"She replaced me. I was in the graveyard cause of her. What do you think?"
Obscurejones

(I swear if it wasn't so damn hard, I'd do most of his dialogue about Erou that way.)
I think that's acceptable.  But we should still give her a chance to perform.  She might surprise us.
Who

"With what? Shuffling cards?"
Obscurejones

He shrugs and checks to make sure all the games are in place.
Who

They are, she follows behind him with an annoying sing songy voice.

"Your girlfriend's a moron."
Obscurejones

He ignores her for now.
Remember boys just enough winners to keep them intrigued.  And no more than one living toy given out a night.
Who

She keeps it up.

"What?"
Obscurejones

You never heard of that one?  It's a classic...  Which this carnival would be in a unique position to provide, I suppose.
He gathers them in.
It's an old con.  You wait for a rube who's unhappy.  They're lonely or they look like they can't stand the person they're with.  Rope them in and give them a win, and a prize that seems like their perfect mate, a doll or such.  
Make it so that as long as they're on carnival grounds it has the hint of a spark of life.  
By the end of their evening they're come to you to make the sale.
Who

"Righto boss."

The dolls still singing.
Obscurejones

He reaches out to grab her by the throat.
Who

Doesn't stop the singing, what with her being a doll and all.
Obscurejones

He pulls her closer.
Can you turn to flesh?
Who

"Only his favourites can do that."
Obscurejones

That's a shame but I'll make do.
He pulls her close.
I know you're sad about the boss picking her over you, twice, but if you want to join us you don't have to pout.  Just ask.
Who

"Let go of me."

Also, that's gross beyond belief. She's a doll!
Obscurejones

He knows.  Your point? Very Happy
He smiles.
I appreciate your help with the carnival.  But at the end of the day I am hers.  You would do well to remember it.
He releases his grip.
Who

How would that even work!? Don't answer that, I don't want to know.

"Wow, over protective much?"
Obscurejones

He laughs and hie demeanor brightens.
Perhaps.  Is your tent ready?
Who

"Yes."
Obscurejones

Mind If I see the act beforehand?
Who

"If you must."

She starts walking back towards the her tent.
Obscurejones

He follows her.
Who

It's a green tent, Jack's outside whipping up a sign for it.
Obscurejones

He nods to Jack as he heads inside.
Who

There's a small stage set up in the center. The doll hops onto it and starts to dance. There's something vaguely off about the dance, a tiny hint of otherworldly-ness.
Obscurejones

He smiles and cocks his head as he watches.
Who

"Good enough for you?"
Obscurejones

Perfect.  Thank you.
Who

"Lets see little miss perfect do that."
Obscurejones

He laughs.
She likely can't.
He walks towards the exit.
Who

She starts laughing as he leaves.
Obscurejones

He glances back.
Yes?
Who

She stops.

"Nothing."
Obscurejones

No, by all means share.
Who

"It's not important."
Obscurejones

Have you noticed that people never use that phrase correctly?  Now what exactly is amusing you?
Who

"It's literally nothing. Don't you have something better to do?"
Metakirb

Jeska teleports as close to Erou as she can
Obscurejones

That is very suspicious language.  Speak plain and quickly, what was laughable?
Who

"The punchline to a joke Jack told me. Happy now?"

----

I guess that'd be next to her then.
Obscurejones

You are an awful liar.  I'll make sure there's no need for acting in your show.  Try again.
Metakirb

She shakes Erou, trying to wake her.
Who

"You're really paranoid, you know that?"

---

Erou opens her eyes, to Jeska....with cat ears...oh I must be dreaming.
Metakirb

She hugs Erou tightly
Obscurejones

Horribly.  Answer the question.
Who

"I told you, it was something Jack said. Go as him if you don't believe me."

---

"Umm, Jeska?"
Metakirb

Yeah?
Obscurejones

My apologies than.
He leaves.
Who

"Why do you have cat ears?"
Metakirb

These? someone forced me to give them to myself, she kept saying i'd done something to her.

She tries to nuzzle her head against Erou's neck.

i managed to get away from her.
Obscurejones

Pierrot walks back to his car and walks in.
Who

And he'll find Erou being nuzzled by a Jeska kitty.

"Kar! Look who it is."
Obscurejones

Cool.  We got a kit...Jeska?
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Isn't that great?"

She hugs Jeska.
Metakirb

Jeska hugs her back.
Obscurejones

Actually... Yeah.  Can you roar?
Metakirb

I can't roar but i um... i can purr and other cat stuff.
Obscurejones

That sounds... like an age restricted tent, but we can make it work.
Metakirb

She goes a little red.

That's not what i meant
Who

Erou tries to get up from under Jeska.
Metakirb

Jeska reluctantly lets her.
Obscurejones

I know but that's the easiest way to spin it and get recruits.
Who

"So what, come see Jeska, the amazing cat girl?"
