    welcome to across the chessboard! we're an alice in wonderland based site with an original plot and slight modern dystopian twist and canon characters from alice's adventures in wonderland and through the looking glass and what alice found there, both by lewis carroll. for a longer summary, please visit our information center here. if you have any questions, feel free to give an admin a shout in the cbox (it's to your left- just click the chatter button and it should pop open). again, welcome, and we hope you join us!

    it is currently summer 2015 in london.
    it is currently summer-ish in wonderland.

  • stats & info
    Wonderland wasn't always this way. There was a time when it mirrored medieval England, albeit with a few magical elements: a few quirks and eccentricities that made it truly unique. While all feared the Queen's mercurial temper and the fine blade of her Guillotine, all was well, until a little girl named Alice Liddell disturbed the status quo and sparked a revolution. The kingdom began to fall into decay as the taint of the modern world invaded. History is beginning to repeat itself and no one is happy. As the Queen of Hearts tangles in a battle of wits and riddles with the Cheshire Cat, the rest are starting to wonder ... is it true that the White Rabbit is bringing humans to Wonderland when they themselves are banned from going to London?

When we were young the future was so bright The old neighborhood was so alive And every kid on the whole damn street Was gonna make it big and not be beat

hello guys! just a quick announcement to remind you of a couple of things.

cbox! cbox is a very public chat area. guests and new members alike will most likely look at the cbox first to judge what the site and people on the site are like, so be sure to be curteous and polite while talking. please do not talk about heavy topics and take all personal matters to pm/messenger.

rules! take a few minutes to re-read and take in the rules, faq and the like. most likely, the answer to your question is already there but in case it's not, all admins are frequent in the cbox and if we're not there at the time, feel absolutely free to send us a pm. please understand that our lives and responsibilities come first and chessboard is something that we do in our own time as a form of relaxation.

activity check! not this month. we've only just set off so we're giving you and ourselves some time to get ourselves in gear but once april hits, there will be an activity check and we will start enforcing the post quota. please refer to the rules for more information.

member status! please keep us updated regarding your activity in the member status thread and keep on checking the admin status thread as it changes frequently.

You stand with your hand on my waist line It's a scene & we're out here in plain sight I can hear them whisper as we pass by It's a bad sign bad sign Something happens when everybody finds out See the vultures circling dark clouds Love's a fragile little flame it could burn out It could burn out

Yeah, I know this street and I own this crowd And my only companion is a lightning cloud I seem real nice and easy to trust Ashes to ashes and dust to dust I’m gonna lead you a path to self destruct On this crazy train that I conduct.

absences!

while we haven't had an activity check yet, we will be holding one at the end of this month! so please make it a habit now to post absences if you know you're not going to be posting for a little bit! our weekly quota will kick in soon too. if you don't have an absence up and you miss an activity check, we will label you inactive. it only takes a few seconds to throw up an absence notice, so please do so! and if you're going to be noticeably slow for a bit, update us in the member status thread. thank you!
