Character History and Personality: Wonderland, wonderland, wonderland. So many memories repressed and re-construed. It wasn’t as simple as the stories might have said but so much is only recalled in a deep haze.
There was the rabbit and the cat, the twins and the caterpillar. But there was also the maze and the queen, the lone and terrible obstacle preventing her from returning home.
And then there was blood, so much blood. The victory was a sweet relief, even if she had to carve her way to it.
She hadn’t been prepared for reality upon her return, how her family was horrified at the things she tried to speak of. They refused to believe her, telling her to stop spreading such nonsense, making her both stubbornly refuse to disregard her adventures as well as wonder if she had simply dreamed them up, as they insisted.
The hazy line between fact and fiction grew worse after her family’s home was set ablaze, killing all but her and sending her teetering over into madness. With the previous ramblings of unreal places and no one else to turn her to, she was sent to an asylum for observation and treatment. She never quite got better though, not when her stuffed rabbit toy seemed to scamper to places she never left it, when a whiff of strange air seemed to carry a whisper of riddles with, or when the moon’s crescent seemed show behind her closed eyelids, or was she just looking into the shadows and see the razor sharp smile of an old feline friend.
It mattered very little in the end. The musings and memories never stopped but Alice got better at revealing nothing at all. She never was sure if any denizens of Wonderland escaped with her, Cheshire the most likely culprit and also the least likely to respond to her questions. But a decade passed in that place and she knew one day she’d be released, out into a world that was more dangerous than wonderland.
Journal/Key: The journal is an old and aged leather bound journal. Fingerprints dot the edges, pages are ripped out, and writing by various different hands litters the backs of pages, scribbling nonsensical things and appearing on someone else’s whims. The key is brass, seemingly ancient, with a mushroom motif on one end, sharp teeth on the other, and flecks of blood on the metal.
