★ The Strangest Funfair on Earth ★
The strangest funfair on Earth is as magical and wonderful as it is terrifying… once you enter you might be there 7 minutes, few days, or more than a lifetime…
It exists in between places… and appears for those who yearn for a dramatic change in their lives…. and for children of course… but that’s because children can always see the door hidden from an average mortal adult…
…. about doors…. they can look like anything really… thin as air… backwards door… ones that activate only on Fridays and only when a cat meows in the neighborhood… they could even be your bathroom door once in 10 years… you never know…..
But you would be right to be scared like hell to go in… but once you do… your life is out of your hands… and be prepared for something big.
Big as… lotteries when you can win(or loose) some years of your life, get a new face, new life…. there are stalls where you can buy good or bad luck… candy floss that makes you forget things and toffee that makes you remember more than actually happened… there is a black tunnel of chaos that will surely make you mental if that’s what you need… and lovers alley.. with no immediate results… there are mirror rooms that show crossroads of your life or just strange distorted faces…. and there are some ordinary bingo stalls with extraordinary prizes… and some really very traditional cafes with a steaming black coffee… the trick is… you sometimes can’t tell…
On the grounds of the oldest Funfair in the universe, light and dark meet in a wild dance….and “justice” is a name of one haunted house far on the back, nothing more.
Markings on the walls date long before humans… light has a greenish hint to it… and on the edges… there are places so dark that you can cut them and serve like brownies…. and walls have doors….doors of various sizes… some leading to our world…and some to long forgotten planes. Funfair could be your savior… or it could be your doom… or…… you could just get enchanted… like the Carousel Girl ^___^
★ Carousel ★
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Mary,that lived with her step mother and two mean sisters…. they turned the little poor thing into their maid… She didn’t have a decent meal in a while, her clothes were all out of fashion and she had to do all the hard work at home…. wait, do we know that story?
One day a strange announcement appeared on the news post near their house… something about a travelling funfair… Of course… mother and two daughters went, thinking they left Mary at home, crying…but Mary followed them, found a gap in the wall, and sneaked in.
So while Mary’s sisters were winning such things as extra nose wart or permanent oily hair… Mary was having a night of her life.. filled with candies, toys, clowns, and whatever wonders this funfair had to offer….
All who enter must buy a ticket… you don’t need money… something from your pocket will suffice…. a button…paper clip … sometimes a strand of your hair.. or a color from your coat… Funfair doesn’t need a guard…magic guards it…and you can get in for free, but then you won’t get out.. (some choose it actually)
It was nearly morning…. funfair was closing and there were two figures standing at the gate, unable to leave.. both with glowing glittery eyes filled with strange light, already between life and dream…. all of those “lost” must repay what they took for free…. and when Mary was asked who would she love to be…she whispered….. “Carousel”….
She has 9 1/5 year more to give… but she already decided to stay…. because when you’re willingly working at the funfair… the pay is… magical…. and can get you a good life with a lot of years and buckets of good luck..
Carousel still looks 9.
Carousel is a Blythe doll customized by me.
