Who: Famous musicians, hopeful auditioners, and random onlookers.
What: Hit gameshow series “Fairy Trial” is celebrating one of its anniversaries, and it’s invited you onboard. For more deets, check out the OOC post!
When: March 11th.
Where: Sevetop Entertainment’s studio.
Warnings: Mingle log mystery bag.

“It's so much better to pretend
There's something waiting for you here.
Every letter that you wrote
Has found its way to me, my dear.”


For musicians in either Pride or Virgo, the job offer is delivered by their managers- a suggestion to accept an invitation from Sevetop to participate in a successful gameshow. (A message that is delivered perhaps a bit more pressingly to some, with the unsaid words of “This is a chance to make it up to us”.) For others, strangers just trying to make a living and wait for their chance to save their loved ones, the message is delivered over their communicators by Gold, with promises that infiltrating this event will aid you in liberating the captives from their label's control. Either way, all roads lead to Sevetop Entertainment.

Sevetop might not have the weight that musical giants Pride Labels and Virgo Entertainment do, but that’s because it’s not into the musical industry. Sevetop is all about television and the big screen. For these purposes, it has its own little area of the city, a bustling kind of Hollywood filled with the more office-like buildings, auditoriums for additions, and even various sets. Whether you’re driven in style via limo, or brought to a regular line of buses, this is where you end up at.

Musicians, of course, end up at the more posh meeting room. A spread of delicate little lunch sandwiches, veggie platters, cupcakes, and assorted beverages are on a table for anyone to snatch up, and regularly refilled. Every celebrity is handed a small folder with papers inside going over both the boring legal things and explaining the purpose of the show. “Royals” are the ones to be “saved”, but they don’t have to make the journey easier on their “Heroes” and are given tools at their disposal to help or hinder. Heroes have one goal to accomplish, ‘rescuing’ their Royal, but it changes depending on the challenge.

Much to your surprise, some of those aspiring Heroes might just look familiar. Don't tell!

In another building, next door, various people picked off the street (some coincidentally, others not so much, thanks to Gold's glamour witchcraft) are being given very much the same kind of presentation… In a room much more cramped, with not nearly enough chairs, on a slideshow. The only refreshments available are small bags of chips (try not to take more than one) and coolers full of bottled water.

After the separate presentations are done with, everyone is allowed to check out the sets for past seasons, which includes what look like giant mushroom tops that are made of very bouncy rubber, climbing walls made of fake vines, pumpkin shaped carriages (horses not included), and other such things.

Of course, it’s not all play. While you’re messing about, you’ve all been given numbers. Once you’ve been called, you’re to stand in front of Fairy Trial’s hosts and commentators: siblings Bella and Maurice Hooks. Both of them are equally friendly, although her more outgoing to his easygoing, but they have plenty of questions for this little audition. Tell them about yourself: hobbies, job, your favorite fairy tale, what you think your best skill is - and then, the most important, you get to display a choice "talent" in front of the audience. It can be whatever you like, as long as it's crowd appropriate.

Be careful, though, because the rock stars you're hoping to work with are watching, too. At the very least, don't make an ass out of yourself. Gold's enchantments are good, but there are some things that even magic can't charm its way through.

After all this, you’ll get a chance to just rest and mingle while your rides come back to take you back to the mall or HQ you were picked up at. Obviously for certain famous names, they’ll probably be the first ones out, but who knows… Maybe there was a traffic delay, and now you have some time to spare waiting around here as well. Just take note that you’re not allowed to wander too far from the Fairy Trial sets. Security is keeping an eye on folks to make sure they don’t steal or wreck anything.

And don’t worry, you’ll be told about the results within a week! They promise.

“You can make believe that what you say
Is what I want to hear.
I'll keep dancing through this
Beautiful delusional career.”

I don't know. There are also glass shoes and seaweed hanging out of windows.

Glass shoes? That doesn't sound very practical.

[They'd be terribly painful to walk around in let alone anything else. Riza leans over to whisper to 3 so no one else can overhear.]

Are they torture devices?
woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-09 06:15 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe. But... ink doesn't stick to glass, so maybe it'd let me walk through it without any problem.

[ If she doesn't trip in the heels first. ]

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-09 06:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Just something else we'll have to look into.

[Forever with catching up on things.]
woomy: icon of an unsure Agent 3 (Water you talkin' about?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-10 05:00 am (UTC)(link)
I wish I had a chance to look up fairy tales before coming here. I hope the library is still open after we leave.
intohell: (079)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-10 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
Same, but who would have thought they would be so strange?

[Then again, maybe they should have known--nothing here has been normal as far as Riza's concerned.]

I'll go with you. Maybe between the two of us we can figure all of this out.
woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-10 07:20 am (UTC)(link)
We can find one of those collection books that have a bunch of stories in one. It'd probably save us some time.

[ They have to cram the ins and outs of the fairy tales to prepare for their challenges. They can't fail. ]
intohell: (006)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-12 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe if we can find two one of us can start at the end. We can work to the middle and then explain what we read to each other.

[It would go quicker that way and by describing the stories they'd be sure they understood them.]

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-12 05:15 am (UTC)(link)
All right, we have a battle strategy.

[ She likes this idea and will go with it. ]
intohell: (079)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-13 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm sure we'll have a perfect understanding of everything before we have to show up again.

[Because she's sure at least one of them will make it onto the show.]

woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-13 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
We should look at the props here and take note. Maybe we'll figure out what they mean in the stories.

[ And those are the fairy tales they really should remember because the stuff is already here and made. They could be inspiration for their trials. ]
intohell: (027)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-14 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
Good idea. Didn't you say something about some weeds and a window?

[Seaweed is not a word she knows.]
woomy: icon of a smiling Agent 3 (Just keeping swimming)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-14 06:10 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. It's that thing over there.

[ She points to the Rapunzel hair hanging out of the tower. ]
intohell: (047)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-16 01:44 am (UTC)(link)

Those aren't weeds, it looks like hair. I've never seen hair that long before though.
woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-17 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
[ She's getting better with learning about humans, but some things still confuse her. ]

Oh... Can human hair actually get that long?
intohell: (061)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-17 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe if it was never cut. Mine took several years to get this long, but that would take a lifetime I would think.
woomy: icon of a side glancing Agent 3 (Don't be shellfish)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-17 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
That must be one old person up there.

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-17 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
[Riza walks over to the prop to get a closer look.]

I don't think it's actually real.
woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-17 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
So... humans don't actually grow their hair out that long.

[ It's not like some human version of a Kraken. ]

That makes it a fairy tale thing, right?
intohell: (057)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-18 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
I can't imagine anyone actually doing that.

[It would be a pain to deal with between washing it, brushing it, and trying to keep it out of the way while doing anything a person would need to do daily.]

Yeah, I'd say it's definitely a fairy tale thing.
woomy: icon of a smiling Agent 3 (Just keeping swimming)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-18 05:58 am (UTC)(link)
That's one thing we need to look for. What are some of the other weird things?

[ Time to make a list and cheat sheet. ]
intohell: (027)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-20 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
I think I saw a glass coffin a little bit ago. I'm pretty sure that's not normal.

[Unles funerals here were extremely different from the ones she knew.]
woomy: icon of a surprised Agent 3 (Holy shrimp!)

/headcanon funeral rites for Inklings, burial at sea/dissolve into the ocean

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-21 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ Blink blink blink ]

That's horrible! Why would you separate someone from returning to the ocean?
intohell: (Default)

[personal profile] intohell 2016-03-21 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
[That takes Riza a moment since Amestris is landlocked, but it sinks in eventually.]

I don't know. We'll have to figure that one out.
woomy: icon of a confused Agent 3 (Are you squidding me?)

[personal profile] woomy 2016-03-21 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
[ And Agent 3's world is the opposite. There's so much water. The idea of a landlocked area is strange. ]

And... what about that mirror with the creepy face next to it?
