  • welcome
    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?

by now a long standing tradition on many sites, though we do also encourage and support plotting on personal messengers- this is where you can put your plot page, shipper... whatever you call it. one per member is preferable as it keeps it all neat and tidy.

is there someone you really need for your character's storyline? a family member? a group of friends? maybe you play the hatter and really need your hare and dormouse. whatever your need, post them here. divided into wonderland and london based for your convenience as the two areas are separated.

sometimes we have something to share but the cbox doesn't seem quite appropriate. perhaps a discussion about a new movie coming out, showing off photos of our new haircuts or that dumb thing your cat just did. whatever the need, this is where all chatter can go. also a good place to wish someone a happy birthday!

want to show off your graphics skills and open a shop to make pretty things for people? written something chessboard-related that you want to share? perhaps you've made a character video or want to take a gander at the official site trailers. maybe you've even cosplayed your character- this is where to stick those things.
