[Action A - 2238 Stevens Road]
-Charlie had got used to a normal civilian job, and he had learned to keep undercover.

He was overly suspicious of the new police chief, and had wanted nothing to do with it. For now, he would bide his time.-

[Action B]

-Charlie can be found at the park... he actually seems to be reading some of the books from the library, as he's curious about the toy and its history that it has to offer. While most books seem repetitive, he ignores such things and continues to read. Do you see him? Go for it... bother him and see what happens.-

[Hey look, it's the neighbor girl from 2237 Stevens, headed out the door for to school. She glances over and gives a cheerful wave.]

Hey! First day here? You look pretty confused.

Excuse me, but where is "here"?

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 01:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Here is Mayfield and we're kind of trapped for the moment.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 02:08 pm (UTC)(link)
It's kind of a long story, but the basic idea is we've all been brought here by magic or something, and there's no way out because the town just loops forever. They make people live with each other in families for some reason. Oh, and there's people who think they've lived here forever. They're called drones. You can pretty much just ignore them.

Thank you for the information. I'll keep this in mind, but with what you do know, do you know who is in charge of this whole operation?

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 02:25 pm (UTC)(link)
A little girl named Lucy Smith, but I wouldn't go looking for her if I were you.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 03:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Lucy Smith? I see... is she dangerous then?

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 03:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. She's unbelievably strong. She's gotta be either a powerful witch or a demon or something.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)

Understood. Thank you again.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 03:19 pm (UTC)(link)
No problem! I'm right over at 2237 if you ever need anything, okay? My name's Yuna.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 03:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Yuna. That's a nice name. Thank you again for your time, and my name is Charlie.

[identity profile] 2011-05-17 05:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks! I always liked it too. Nice to meet you, Charlie.

[Sarah Jane is in the kitchen making tea. She's rather surprised to find... not that pesky drone coming down the stairs]

Good morning. I imagine you have a lot of questions.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 01:46 am (UTC)(link)

Indeed. We'll start with the obvious... where am I?

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
The town is called Mayfield. It's a facsimile of 1950s America on Earth.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 02:25 am (UTC)(link)

What do you mean by... "on Earth"? Last I checked, I still was on Earth.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
[Sarah Jane smiles]

Just thought I'd make it clear. Not everyone here is from Earth.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sorry, that was probably a bit much, wasn't it. The town kidnaps people from a wide variety of places.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
More specifically, the forces that control it. Essentially, there are three kinds of people here.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
Go on.

First there are the people like you and me, brought here from someplace else.

The second category are what we call drones. They follow a rigid script based on idealized versions of 1950s gender roles. They also insist that the rest of us have been here all our lives and fit into their neat little boxes. There are two drone children that live in this house, so you'll see that for yourself soon enough.

Finally, there is a third category that seem to be the powers in the city. They're a bit more distinct than the drones, and more dangerous. The mayor, the chief of police, the milkman, the librarian and the postman. The Smith family, notably their daughter Lucy, are also in this category.

-Sitting on a bench sees Charlie heading his way. There is a slight twinge of surprise in his eyes.-

Well well well, look at what we have here.
