@Bani: You've really only seen one Alice film? If you can handle old movies you should check out the 1988 Alice film. It's kinda creepy, the animals are all taxidermed and what-not.

I'm actually playing Madness Returns. It's an awesome game. Very beautiful and twisted. Totally reccomend it.

I love Tim Burton's film! I begged and begged my parents to let me see it. I think Alice's actor is Mia Wasikowska, right? If I'm not mistaken, she also plays Athenodora from Twilight... but we're off topic now.
This is a story about two boys
The taller one has a gun tucked into his waistband
He thinks the bullets are meant for him.
The older one has a record player in his head
He sings along to the same five songs.
They know each other
Down to the colour of blood
And the sound of bones breaking.
But they are strangers.
The one with the gun keeps forgetting the words
And the boy with the music won't let him shoot.

Oh, I see^^ I'll have to look up more of its concept art then. It looks so pretty ^_^ -has a thing for pretty art-

That sounds great owo I usually go for things that have been based off Alice in Wonderland because I love the different ways they interpret Wonderland. But its kind of a problem to follow the films for me since they don't release here (except for the latest one, which I've seen quite a few times - but while their interpretation is very interesting I'm not a big fan of it due to the extremely clear demarcation of good and evil - I feel kind of sorry for Iracebeth, actually...her character had so much potential for development.... I tend to like things where the line is blurred but still there a little more) and I don't really have much time online. But I'm very interested in seeing them. One of them was based on the video game itself if I'm not mistaken, and I especially want to see that one.

Ahaha, I asked 'cos I'm stuck on a stage for two weeks and wanted to know if there was some kind of a trick to it. .....Though, now that I think about it, that might be some kind of a cheating? I need to figure it out on my own. Yep, the art style is very pretty, and yet dark and rough around the edges enough to suit the game.

I haven't actually read the real book except for once when I was very young. Since then I've been reading translations, so you can see why I'm very rusty. I've searched for the book but all I can find are the Children's Classics or such versions. Bookstores nowadays .... -.-;;;

Wow, that's really amazing! I lean towards the various interpretations of Alice in Wonderland in manga ( Are You Alice?, Pandora Hearts, Wonderful Wonderland) since they're more easily available to me ( my dad blocked all movie sites on my cell but he doesn't know about mangas so he didn't bother blocking them .. Yay for manga-reading time!), but I'm horribly out of date with the Western interpretations.
All our tears and scars are beautiful - because they make us what we are today.

I totally would, only I don't get enough time on the PC to watch a movie, and our cable doesn't show old movies. And my Dad blocked all movie sites on my cell T^T Maybe once I have my Summer Vacations....

Is Madness Returns a sequel to the first game, or a standalone? Thanks for telling me about it. I'll go check it out^_^

@TSE I'm not sure myself, but if you or try Veoh, you might find some of them. Veoh has a lot of good movies, and you can watch them online if you install the Veoh toolbar, Of course, you could always try to google Alice in Wonderland movies.

@NSH Holy cow! Madness Returns is right up my lane, even more so than AM's Alice! I'm so buying this!

In case anyone's curious, the green-white flowering tree at the centre of Fiore's Garden is Alstonia scholaris (Milkwood pine) and the Lantern Tree I mentioned is not the lantern tree after all, it's called Golden Shower. I mistok it as a Lantern Tree 'cos I didn't know the English name for it and it looks a lot like lanterns are hanging from the tree (only goldenish-green, long ones instead of the red round ones that the real Lantern Tree's flowers look like).

I just thought I'd mention that a momerath is basically just a green pig, I wasn't sure if I'd made that clear.

@TaniaSoulEater: That's only on the animated Disney film, in the original book they're green pigs that are away from home :)

Okay. And the word is those. Sorry.
Anyway, yeah, thanks for explaining.
Isn't the term 'mome raths' 'Rome maths' with the first letters swapped? Don't know what Rome maths is though.

Hmm considering no word from Luki I'm probably just going to have to move on now. I am considering the idea you came up with Bani, but I really don't know how throwing her in all the mayhem will turn out. She doesn't know anything about what's going on.. Jabberwocky, how to protect herself, or any of the other chains... hmm.. She'd also need a new contractor because Rabbit's not around.. I'm a little blocked, who are the open chains?

Mmm, the only open Chain not under Jabberwocky's thrall would seem to be the Queen of Hearts.
That's right too, since she doesn't really know what's going on ... you could transport to the Chess Board? (Though shit's going down there too, its not anything actually dangerous. Just... Alice and her general insanity.)
