“What is this?” Adeline breathed, ripping her fingers through her scraggly hair nervously. But no one was around to hear her question.
The sky was darker than the deepest sea, the only source of light being the stars, which covered the expanse of the sky without the blanket of pollution. Her voice echoed through the thicket forest, which wasn’t awake with a single bird song or scatter of paws.
The Ace of hearts is both admired and feared in the never ending carnivals.
Some say the place is cursed. A never ending parade of tricks and shows, with the closing act always being Ace. But a louder majority say the place is a blessing. Light amidst these enchanted realms.
I agree with the curse.
When I was first brought to the carnivals, I was only seven. The ride was long, so long that the ...
(This is heavily inspired by Star-fire taking the teen titans to that carnival and also the last few chapters in Renegades, its a book)
Apparently we weren’t acting like a team. Whatever that means.

The carnival is filled with wonderful things, but sometimes their not the funnest in the world. The worst part about this specific carnival was that it had clowns in their mirror maze to encourage everyone. The person who thought of that really should have their head screwed on again.
Claire has hated mirror mazes since the first time she stepped into one. She had walked straight into a mirror a...
She gave a hint of a grin before turning around, and walked purposefully into the crowd. What a little… I was taken aback by her speed and ran after her. Damnit, she was fast despite her short legs; I struggled to keep pace, unintentionally bumping into angry villagers.
“Right. So… Excuse-me sir… Oops, sorry Ma’m… so where are your parents?”
She did not even deign to look at me, her stride unal...
I was staring at a colorful Ferris wheel, proudly raised against the sky. Around me, a growing number of people attending the Carnival, taking turns on the bumper-cars or eating cotton-candy. There were families tearing themselves apart over which child would get to keep the giant purple teddy bear, couples awkwardly sharing toffee apples, the famous “Pommes d’Amour” as they called them, and group...
You’re making your way through the carnival. It’s so colourful and fun. There is music playing everywhere, and sounds of laughter enter you ears. Your friends all ditched you to go to a concert, but you didn’t want your ticket to go to waste, so you came alone. It’s pitch black at this time of night, so the bright lights of the carnival give off an odd yet intriguing sensation. For a while, you wa...
Camelot breathes out, blue smoke swirling into the air and into the face of a rather annoyed looking Key. Camelot leans in, eyes hazy.
“I’d worship you,”

“Like the god you are.”...
Every three years, Carnival De Novis came to the village.
Monsterous horses, far larger than any taxidermied elephant exhibited at the museum, appeared over the horizon. Carts and carriages would shadow them, painted in the richest plum and deepest burgundy, their windows black, lace curtains drawn tight.
The mysterious convoy would trundle quietly through the streets, the old wagon wheels chur...
