    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?

suggested face claim: sam claflin

before i begin, i warn you; this is only going to hurt.

i'm being a bit of a risk taker here and requesting a character that is already courting one of mine. i haven't mentioned him in a thread yet, but for the sake of plot progression, it'd be good if they were already semi-dating. he's from london, and a bit more forward- but she's extremely old fashioned, so i imagine he's pulling out all the chivalry and gentlemen-esque stops and doing what he can to woo her. essentially, they are sickeningly sweet and adorable and every inch the perfect couple.

unfortunately, warrick is a dick.

the basic storyline for these two is as follows;

- they're very much in love
- oh no! jabberwocky comes back
- jabberwocky is an a* tit
- jabberwocky decides antoinette is his tyvm
- world of hurt

how this plays out is essentially after warrick becomes possessive of antoinette (against her wishes, considering she finds him utterly repulsive personality wise) he gives her an ultimatum. kill the card herself, or he will. she claims she'll do it, but in secret makes an arrangement with fintan to spirit him away to london again to keep him safe. to cover their tracks though, she does indeed have to cut him, so she has enough of his blood to ensure warrick is convinced.

essentially the whole "if you love them let them go" plot, except involving a lot more blood and violence and soul crushing. especially as, as time goes on- warrick will potentially corrupt antoinette, meaning if she and her card ever reunite... she may not be the same delicate flower he fell in love with.

come and join us on this crazy ride and take him right away!

name(your choice) — 30 — grey — card — thoughtful
