    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?

I wish that you could see, all that's left of me. In this land of broken dreams, I still try to believe. I'm all right, I'm all right, I don't mind if you don't mind. My blood runs red from the streets to the sewers, to the blue black ocean- I'm caught in the tide but I don't mind if you don't mind.

suggested face claim: amy adams

alright, so there's a lot of history with this lovely lady and jack that i'm going to try and condense here for simplicities sake;

she was the first human jack came into proper contact with back in the late eighties when she was in her early twenties and he looked about the same age. she saved him from being hit by a car (poor clueless bastard that he was) and took him under her wing. over time he definitely developed feelings for her, and she for him. they dated for a little while, until his sudden disappearance. now, he told her about wonderland but she, obviously, didn't believe him. after a while he began to pretend as though he'd never talked about it and they forgot about it. so when he was forced back to wonderland, madelyn didn't know what to think; maybe she even filed a missing persons report. whatever the case, twenty years have gone by without a word, so she has more than likely moved on, perhaps even married, maybe even had children (encouraged, for maximum feels).

jack is of course now in london again, hiding from his aunt, and he's looking for madelyn. he still loves her, but has she moved on? let's have all the feels here, ladies and gents.

name: madelyn — late forties — therapist — grey — warm
suggested face claim: kathryn prescott

known as the most honest member of the group, 'kathryn' has a big secret. she's been struggling with her identity (could be sexuality, gender, anything you like!) for a while and she isn't entirely sure how to go about telling her friends. until the day she works it out, she's quite content going on as she is; one of the few to actually show up on time consistently and always have her homework done. she's a bright, intelligent student and almost always the one to suggest a study group or a trip to a museum. definitely one of the geekiest of the bunch. she and aubrey love attending comic cons, and she's been trying to get him into cosplay for months now.

name: open — 16 — student — grey— honest
suggested face claim: takei emi

"i don't paint flowers or fruit, i paint monsters!"

'takei' here is an alternative artist, or so she calls herself. she's known for frequently getting into heated arguments with her art teacher over what she can and cannot draw in class, and prefers to depict images of savage violence or monsters lurking beneath beds than she does a bowl of fruit. outside of her art, she appears sweet and innocent, and it's only until you take a peek in her sketch book that you realise the truth of it. with a wicked sense of humour and an affinity for sharp objects, 'takei' is the epitome of 'don't judge a book by its cover'.

name: open — 16 — student/artist — grey — ...unique
suggested face claim: keke palmer

the undeniable 'heart' of the group, 'keke' is almost like a second mother to her friends. she acts as a confidant to all of them, though aubrey has not yet confided in her what's happening at home. bubbly, eager to please and always the one who seems to have EVERYTHING in her handbag from tissues to sweets to 3D glasses for the cinema: 'keke' is pretty much the perfect friend. she's not without her secrets, though.

name: open — 16 — student — grey — doting

I am going to take the unique artist/student and I was actually planing on using Gouriki Ayame, if you don't mind of course. I do like Takei Emi also so honestly I don't mind either way. I'm quiet tired so I'll have to do the whole signing up process tomorrow, but you shall see her on here soon.

I have plots for one of these. Buuttttt I haven't done anything with Qas yet because grading is consuming my life for the next week. So maybe after that if the one I'm scheming for isn't taken. :D
