Introduction

You wake up in a strange place, you can't remember anything but something tells you you're better off this way. And then you find a strange person is trailing you, offering you their 'help'. Do you take it? Can you trust them? Can you afford not to?

As you open your eyes to see bright sunlight, you realise you have no idea of where you are.
Of course, your brain tells you soon enough that you are in some sort of a great hall. A hall so large and high that you can't see its walls or ceiling no matter how much you try. You get up carefully and venture around the place, walking aimlessly, trying to understand where you are, not just your location, but some sort of recognition...
None is forthcoming.

You realise with some trepidation that its not just the hall, you can't even remember anything else. For example, how you ended up here, what you were doing before this or even who the hell you are.
Somehow, the only sensation you remember is that of falling down, down, down an endless dark hole.

As you stare at the darkness, a voice seems to whisper in your ears. You look around only to find you are alone.
The voice is calming, though. You can't tell if its male or female. Its not that its androgynous, its just that it feels as if you are sensing the voice, not hearing it.

"You are better off not knowing." it whispers in your ears. "Its better for you to not know."

And suddenly, you have the strangest feeling. Its as if someone is reaching out to you, waiting for you to take their hand. You don't know why or who - again, its more of a sensing than seeing.

"Come with me." it says. "I will make you forget. I will help you. Don't you want my help?"

Hey, I wonder what you will do now? What will you do?

Will you take the hand offered to you?
Will you try to run and see if you can escape the hall? What then?


You are whisked into a strange land, stranded without any memories. This decision might be the most important one you will ever make - the difference between life and death. And what's worse? You don't have a clue as to what you should do.

Ten will fall down the Rabbit Hole.
Ten will be guided to become that which is sought the most by the denizens of Wonderland.
Only one will become Alice.
Only one will go home.


Will you accept the challenge? Will you be the one to become Alice and go back where you belong? Or will you search for your memories despite being repeatedly warned not to? Will you endure the unknown, or will you risk the forgotten?

You will decide.
But then, do you really have a choice?

Plot:
Wonderland is more of a prison, under the dictatorial reign of the Queen of Hearts. Any and all dissenters are executed immediately.
There aren't any clear cut 'factions' in this RP. The residents of Wonderland are beings that can form a contract with a human and lend them certain powers. The terms of the contract are mostly up to the Chain (since really, the human beings are hopelessly lost and confused), but the apparent reason for the contract and why the Chains help the humans is because of a game ordered by the Queen of Hearts, where each of the ten major Chains are required to find a human to become 'Alice'.
The Chain whose human will become Alice as well as Alice will be granted freedom from Wonderland.
Or that is what the Queen of Hearts says.
Chains may have hidden motives other than this, the Queen herself might have deeper motives - or maybe she just wants to amuse herself. At any rate, they really have no choice but to go along with this 'game' and offer their contract to one of the Alice candidates.

Characters Needed:
● Ten Alice candidates. Ages should be 16+ and lower than 20. Can be of any gender you want. - 9/10 taken.
● Mad Hatter - Open
● March Hare - taken
● Queen of Hearts - taken by Bani
● White Rabbit - a servant to the Queen, but considerably powerful - as much as the Mad Hatter and the others - taken by Lukipyon
● Knave of Hearts - servant to the Queen, but powerful. Not as powerful as normal Wonderlanders, though. - Open
● Queen of Spades - Can be of any gender. As powerful as the Queen of Hearts, and holds the power to the mystery. But take note, she/he is NOT going to be a 'good' character, either. Better than the Queen of Hearts, maybe, but not without their shades. - Open
● Cheshire Cat - taken by NotSoHeartless
● White Knight - Open
● Red Knight - Open
● Dormouse - taken by Bashie L. Craft
●Caterpillar - taken by Ikuto Tsukiyomi Fan
● Tweedle Dee - taken by Orbweaver
● Tweedle Dum - taken by Orbweaver
[These two are siblings and at loggerheads with each other]
● The Duchess - taken by Orbweaver

Contractors:
● Eve V. Kimberly
● Rhiannon Jakalyn Pierce - Contracted to Cheshire
● Ariana Storm
● Belca - Contracted to Duchess
● Isaiah Grey Gris - Contracted to Caterpillar/Absolem
● Yumika Ivory Rae - Contracted to White Rabbit

Chains:
● Queen of Hearts
● Cheshire - Contracted to Rhiannon Jakalyn Pierce
● White Rabbit - Contracted to Yumika Ivory Rae
● Dormouse
● Caterpillar - Contracted to Isaiah Grey Gris
● Tweedle Dee
● Tweedle Dum
● Duchess - Contracted to Belca

Do Read:
● Chains can NOT participate directly in a fight between Contractors. Only Chains can compete against other Chains, and even then they put physical and mental strain on their contractors.

● The only Chains not required to take part in the game are the White Rabbit, Knave of Hearts, and the two Queens. But the Queen of Hearts does anyway.

● A command from the Queen of Hearts can't be directly defied by the Chains. If they do, it results in them getting their powers as a Chain and consequently their roles taken away. However, there are always loopholes, and roundabout ways, right? Also, Chains choose their own loyalty, alliances or lack thereof.

● The only requirement for the candidates to become Alice is to eliminate the other nine Candidates, through fighting or other means. You can surrender if you want, but in that case you'll be kept a prisoner by the Queen of Hearts.

● This is a player-driven RP. The basic plot is there, as well as the basic 'rules' that govern Wonderland, but that's really all there will be from my part. You can go straight into the action and attack other Candidates and Chains, or you can take it slow, look around and 'explore' Wonderland (by which I mean create new places in Wonderland, run into a few NPCs and do what you want!). As long as you don't contradict what someone already said about a certain place or say something ridiculous ( "The Palace of Hearts is made of cheese." = wut? ), you can basically do anything! On that note, feel free to add new areas and your own interpretations of Wonderland. Build upon the world. Its the most fun that way, right?

●Speaking of which, please leave the addition and basic description of a Chain's 'territory', so to speak, up to them. The Hatter will add his own mansion/ garden/ room/ whatever it is, and so on. Not to say you shouldn't build upon them, but do remember that a Chain's territory basically, like a person's room, represents their own quirks and characteristics, and you should give them the freedom to make it as they want.

● On the same note, this is more of a request, really, try to be descriptive. Details add the flavour to a post! Of course, I understand if that's not really your cup of tea, but I would be much obliged if you at least tried ^^

Post in the OOC reserving your character before posting up a profile, please ( because I'd hate it if I accepted someone's profile before looking at the OOC and then find out someone else already asked to reserve it ^^""")

Note: Your character won't remember any of their history, or even their own real names at first. Quite a few of the fields can be updated as you go along to provide for greater character development (because development is always fun!) and freedom. When all has been said and done, its entirely up to you.

Toggle Rules

1.All site rules apply.
2. I understand that violence and romance are both integral parts of an RP, but please don't overdo it. No explicitness unless extremely necessary. Do a timeskip or foreshadow - just don't be graphic.
3. Don't create unnecessary OOC drama.
4. If you have a problem with someone, tell me and I'll do my best to convey it to the person concerned without disclosing your name. That way, personal grudges can be avoided.
5. Respect everyone. Read Rule 4. If some one offends you, tell me and I'll deal with it.
6. Everyone has their own outlooks. Don't be offended if someone states an opinion that varies from yours.
7. And with regards to Rule 6, be respectful while stating your opinion.
8. Nothing done in IC is personal. Please remember that.
9. If you're going to be absent for more than three days, post in the OOC thread saying so.
10. Don't burden the main thread with too much OOC talk. That's why they made an OOC thread, eh? ^^;
11. Be literate. While I'm not asking for flawless spelling and grammar and three paragraphs per post, five lines per post and efforts at somewhat proper grammar and spelling would make it easier on the eyes ^^
12. Have as many characters as you like, just be sure you pay all of them attention.
13.Please take note that everyone is human. As you go along, you will choose powers according to the Wonderlander you are paired with, but not before that. On a similar note, don't godmod.
14.This RP is meant to be dark. No character killing, but I don't mind anything - except explicitly explicit stuff that might get us banned or something. Everything else is encouraged like whoa whoa whoa!

♠ The 'Queen' of Spades ♠


Fiore suppressed a blush himself. Saying something like that was totally out of character for him. How long had it been since he had actually teased someone?

How long has it been since I have actuallytalked to someone out of my own volition without any ulterior purpose?

Wonderland sure had warped them all....

He heard Aria ask if he had always been alone and stiffened a little, almost imperceptibly.

Had he always been alone?

Technically, he had always been alone ever since he came to Wonderland, but before that... he had had a family. However, his past life - the one he used to lead outside Wonderland, in the 'real' world, so to say - was a subject he took great pains to avoid approaching. Not because of some hidden pain, like his own sister's or some of the Chains', but because he had chosen to come here and become a part of Wonderland.

Unlike the others.

He stole a quick glance towards the girl walking beside him, and felt a twinge of guilt.

Unlike her.

"As far as I can remember, I have always been alone ever since I found myself here." he settled for a cross between outright lying and telling her the truth. For some reason, he had a niggling suspicion that she would have known anyway if he had tried to lie, but that had less to do with the reason behind his half truth than the fact he simply didn't want to lie to her. It had been ages since he got a proper ..... companion - he had idly considered the word 'friend' and immediately scratched it out mentally once he realised what he was doing - with whom he could just be himself. Not the Queen of Spades, Ruler of Chess Board, one of the most powerful Chains to ever exist, but simply himself.

Aria's expression was unreadable for a moment until she smiled up at him, "Well you don't have to be alone as long as I'm around." Realizing what slipped out of her mouth Aria would've faced palmed if it weren't for Fiore walking next to her. Hearing the spring get louder she slightly picked up her pace so that Aria was slightly ahead, and began to silently curse at herself for not watching what she said. He's going to think I'm clingy or pushy. I just need to bite my tongue. Truth is that Aria felt sadden by the fact he's been alone.

Of course since her memory was scattered for the time being, Aria was curious if she had been alone before coming to Wonderland. A nagging feeling was saying she was but of course she's only human and was hoping she wasn't. Fiddling with her bracelet out of her nervous habit, Aria turned to looked back at Fiore before turning her attention to back in front of her, "Sorry I didn't mean to come off as clingy or pushy. I just meant since we have a contract I'm going to be here for awhile and you won't be alone that's all." Aria could feel the blush still gracing her cheeks and wished that it would go away. She couldn't recall ever blushing this much because of a man. From his appearance Fiore seemed close to her age and she was nineteen. Aria would admit that he was attractive but would NEVER say that out loud. She would die from embarrassment. "How old are you just out curiousity. I'm nineteen."



OOC: That's okay, it didn't glitch for me so I don't know what's up with the tagging. ^^

Isaiah "Grey" Gris

Grey shifted in his sleep at the sound of glass breaking but didn't wake. He was in a deeper sleep now, he supposed that the way he'd suddenly woken up before had left him exhausted, not to mention all the things he'd gone through that day. Somehow the sound of the breaking glass made its way into his dream.

He was in some sort of old fashioned living room looking at a photo. He was in the center of the picture with people all around him but he was the only one that could be seen clearly. Every other person in the photo had their face blurred out by some sort of fog, like someone had breathed on the glass. Gently he tried to wipe it away but wherever he touch the glass it crack untill finally it shattered. Silently he stared at the frame, it no longer held the picture, instead there was more of the strange mist inside, he was sure that he could see strange shapes within the fog. Slowly the frame began to grow larger and larger, desperately he looked around the room to find an exit which was when he realised he wasn't alone. In the corner stood Absolem, no, it wasn't Absolem but it looked almost identical to him, he was just lacking the mint green hair. The man who was not Absolem opened his mouth and began to speak but no words came out. The man looked at Grey sadly and then his form began to flicker, he was changing. Soon the Absolem look-a-like was gone and in his place was a tall figure dressed in black, eerily it began to float towards Grey, its feet only just brushing the the ground. The figure had a frightening aura about it, without looking back Grey jumped through the frame and into the fog. There were mushrooms everywhere and the fog wasn't fog or mist, it was smoke, everything was hard to see as things often were in dreams but one thing wasn't certain, this dream didn't belong to him. It felt...lonely. Cautiously he began to wander through the mushrooms, looking for anyone or anything. Was this Absolem's dream? Somehow he was sure of it, he could almost feel that the man was somewhere in the dream, the warmth he felt when he was close to him and the certainty that he would be safe and secure that made him want to be close to him but there wasalso the lonelyness which seemed to move through the air of the dream. Soon enough he saw a figure in the distance sitting on top of a mushroom. Was it Absolem this time? "The caterpillar on top of a mushroom surrounded by smoke, how ironic," he said to himself, "Next he'll be asking me 'Who are you?'" That was a thought, would Absolem recognise him in the dream, did Grey even look like himself, was he actually a part of the dream or was he just an observer. Curiousity was beginning to overwhelm him, he had to find out now. Carefully he made his way towards the lonely figure, "So are you going to tell me that one side will make me taller while the other side will make me shorter?" he asked, kicking at the ground shyly. He wasn't entirely sure that he liked being in another person's dream, it felt like he was invading their privacy.


Sinistra/Tweedle Dee & Destra/Tweedle Dum

The twins ran as fast as they could, hoping to catch up to the Duchess. Neither wanted to be caught by the army but they also didn't want to stick around for the birds. Every so often Sinistra would scoop up a stone from the ground while he ran and then launch it from his catapault at the distant mob, each stone hitting downing a target but it would never be enough to take down the whole army.

"That can't be the Dormouse can it?" said Sinistra, holding on to his hat as he ducked under a branch,
"Contrarywise, if it was it might be but it's not," said Destra, glancing back at what had once been the Dormouse, "Not anymore, nohow."

Finally they caught up to the Duchess who was standing in the middle of a clearing with Belca and Moonlight on either side and her son behind her.

"Sophie, what are you doing?" asked Destra, waving his arms fearfully, "You should be running from the things, not waiting for them to come get you, that's logic."

Running over to Moonlight the twins stood on either side of her and then turned to look at the Duchess.

"What's the problem? We need to leave," exclaimed Sinistra.


Duchess Sophie

She had been preparing to fight whatever was coming but that had all changed right before the twins had caught up to them. There was no longer the one big powerful thing coming towards them, now there were three. One she might have been able to handle but even with Sinistra and Destra here there was no way she could take on all three and be sure of victory, not with the level of power she was feeling from them. Now the only hope would be to run, even if escape wasn't possible they might at least make it to Absolem's mushroom patch before the amry caught up with them, then the man could help, if not then they'd just have to hope that the three big things had spread out enough that they could be taken down one by one.
"You're right, things changed and we need to go, now," said the Duchess, grabbing Belca's hand and taking off.

Sinistra and Destra wouldn't be able to find Absolem's house so it all depended on her leading them there.

"By the way Destra," she said as she ran, "I'd like to remind you that I'm a Duchess and you should address me as such, using my name is far too informal of you."

Very soon the trees gave way to giant mushrooms but that said nothing, Absolem's house was still a fair distance away, the Duchess just hoped they could make it in time, all she cared about was getting Belca and the others to safety.

The setting changes from Down the Rabbit-Hole to Wonderland

Cheshire

After a time she let herself fade back, finally satisfied with Absolem's barrier. Enough creatures of the Fungus realm had passed and taken no notice of the homely mushroom, even when she flaunted her visible self around. Now she comfortably sat, surrounded by a growing pile of dirtied bandages. She was surprised at how quickly she was healing. Already, the wounds were scarring over. The Duchess' handiwork definitely paid off. She traced her fingers gently across various scars as she slowly pulled the remaining wrapping off, stopping to study her surprise stitches. She supposed, after battling an army of bears among other creatures, how else would she stay together? She grinned sheepishly at herself, slowly twisting to see the extent of the damage. I look like a ragdoll. Her ears flattened upon her head and she stopped herself. She still wasn't too flexible. Though her wounds were healing, she didn't want to risk re-opening them or tearing the stitches. She still felt the deep, pulsing pain. It would take some time before she was fully healed, but she held onto the progress she was making. She wasn't useless. She could move, though not as fluidly, but she was perfectly capable of fighting. How much of that logic she didn't really believe, but she let denial carry her spirit higher. She would fight if it came to that, nothing would keep her from defending her world and getting her revenge for her destroyed forest, not even her body.

She stared off into the distance, tracing a finger on the mushroom top, etching swirls, strange objects and symbols into it's soft meat. She could feel the presence still, changing, corrupting. Her throat tightened, it was like being choked. She could feel the anguish her world was in and it was unbearable. Wonderland's life was either taken or used, Jabberwockey leaving no room for anything else other than itself. Where was the Queen in all of this? Where were the Higher Chains? Surely, they knew what was going on in her Wonderland, so why was nothing being done about it? Did they have power over the Beast? She shook her head. No, that couldn't be it. It took an outsider, that girl, Alice, to take care of the Thing before and honestly, she couldn't recall what had happened afterward. Cheshire's thoughts came to rest upon Rhia. Would she suffer the same fate as Alice? Would she face Jabberwockey and fade away into obscurity? Was that the children's reason for being here? Did the Queen know of the Plague's freedom and presented the game to fool the Chains into fixing the issue? Cheshire grunted, "She never did dirty her own hands." Whatever the Queen's plans, Cheshire would do things her way, as she always did.

Hearing rustling from inside the house, her ears perked up. Leaning over the side of the mushroom top she maneuvered herself until she was above a window, then she let her head down to peer inside. "Oi!" she called to no one in particular, "You all awake yet?!"

Absolem / Caterpillar


~~~

Absolem noticed a shady figure in the distance, though he refused to stir. He rubbed his temple merely, waiting to see if it approached him, which it had. He couldn’t see clearly, but the boy resembled someone the man knew, that he was sure. He straightened up his posture, leaning his elbow on his knee and his chin on his palm. Curious.. No one has ever come into my dream before. He waited until he finally recognized the boy. Grey? No, it couldn’t possibly. It’s impossible to invade someone else’s dream, even in Wonderland. The Queen hasn’t even managed that. Or has she? Is she clever enough to keep such ability under her sleeve? Absolem looked the blonde boy over, smirking when he asked the famous question, “Seeing as you already realize this, heavens no.” Absolem mockingly chuckled, “I however wonder which side you would prefer. Is it better to be taller or smaller than one’s enemy? Does it matter in the end? Besides, I’m quite looking forward to see if you can decide which is which. Which part will make you taller and which will make you shorter?” He continued, then a more mischievous look appeared on his features, “But then again, how do you even know I’m telling the truth? I could be lying just to amuse myself.” He added that part in very tauntingly. You need to be able to stand without someone else, can you do that without a mental breakdown? Do you realize this is a test, boy? “Maybe the mushroom does nothing at all. Maybe it’s poisonous? Can you really be for certain just on my word?” The mushroom certainly did do as the Caterpillar would have said, the colours would have been different had it been poisonous. Though, I want to see him make his own decision without my help or overall influence. Doubt can be a wonderful thing in small servings. His smirk widened a bit, “So what do you think Grey? Does the mushroom make you shorter or taller?” The man slid down, two different coloured pieces in his hands, offering them to the boy in the dream, the blue in his left and the white in his right. “If it’s not poisonous then how about you test it? Guess which is which.”

~~~

Absolem wanted to see the outcome, but he was quickly torn from his dream when he heard the screaming off the flowers inside of his head. He sat up, frowning to himself. I was having quite a good time dream- Oh, Duchess? Wonderful. Let her in. His hand ushered and his house would now be visible to the Duchess and her guests. I need a drink. He slid from the couch; escaping Grey’s grasp carefully and made a quiet stride to the kitchen, blinking at the girl. She seriously tried.. oh foolish human, why didn’t you wake me if you were thirsty? He sighed, getting himself a glass of water, grasping the TOP of the mushroom sink handle that was blue and twisting. You have to be rough on them, child. He wanted to say, but he was sure it would make the cat’s child uncomfortable. He took a drink of the cold water, holding his head. The dull throbbing was nearly gone, but it still was acting up, taunting him. He had a lot more colour to his features, which was a relief to him and surely would be to Grey. He heard the cat call and laughed a bit, “Me and your child are awake. Grey’s asleep and Duchess is coming, I allowed her and her guests entrance. The house will disappear from outside view after they’ve crossed the border safely. Your child accidentally had a tango with one of the temperamental mushroom sink knobs. It’s nothing serious; I’ll just have to treat it. Unless she wants to lose her finger, but then it would slowly work its magic up her arm. It’s best that everyone lets me handle the mushrooms in my house.” Absolem reach into a cabinet, sighing to himself as he pulled out a syringe and a tiny bottle filled to the brim with clear sparkling liquid. He took the syringe and filled it with the liquid. “I won’t lie, this is going to hurt, but it’s better than slowly dying from poison, no?” Absolem asked in a calm tone, “Hold out your finger.” When the girl removed the bandage he hissed a bit. It took a pretty good bite.. he held her arm tight enough that it would probably bruise later, “It’s vital you don’t move. Bear with me for a moment.” Then he pierced her finger with the hollow needle of the syringe, slowly injecting it into the girl. He felt her jolt under his grip, but luckily he was holding her tight enough it proved harmless. After the entire syringe was emptied he removed it, letting go of her arm, “There. No more flesh eating poison.” Now who has the better child, hmm Cheshire? Yours almost got herself killed.

Rhia


Rhia sighed when neither Absolem or Grey seemed to wake up from the racket she’d made in the kitchen. She continued eating calmly, ignoring the burning and throbbing sensation in her finger. What is wrong with this man’s house? It’s booby-trapped around every turn. Why is he so paranoid? Is he that scared of something? The Jabberwocky perhaps?

Rhia tensed when Absolem entered the kitchen, feeling a blush come to her face. Would he realize what happened? She was feeling a bit embarrassed, he definitely would tell Cheshire and then she’d get teased again. She jumped when she heard Cheshire’s voice and bit her bottom lip, sighing softly in attempt to calm her jittery nerves. “Y-yeah, Absolem and I are.” She called back. She was about to say more, but Absolem mentioned her…predicament to Cheshire. Great, now she’s going to laugh at me. Lose my finger!? Her eyes widened, looking down at her finger. He had a syringe and.. medicine? Wow, it looks kind of pretty. Medicine sparkles here? That’s pretty cool. She slid off the bandages, part of her skin already missing around the bite. It came across as a very nauseating sight, not to mention it looked extremely painful. She bit her bottom lip. She held her finger out as she was instructed, but winced a bit when he had a firm latch around her arm. I realize his reasoning, but this seriously hurts. Who would’ve thought Absolem was this strong? The aquamarine girl thought to herself. She wanted to scream as soon as she felt the medicine being vaccinated into her finger. It felt like tiny shards of glass were being pushed under her skin. She jerked at the beginning, but she merely scrunched her her eyes closed and endured it, jaw clenching from the pain. I’m not weak.. I’m not going to cry and I’m certainly not going to scream.. by the way, who was he calling foolish earlier!? Did.. I hear his thoughts again. She redressed her finger with a clean portion of bandages. She couldn’t even move the appendage now that it was in so much pain. Will Cheshire be irritated or tickled..? I’m not sure how she’ll react to this, but I was just trying to get a glass of water on my own. Will she be mad at Absolem? He wasn’t trying to hurt me, he was the one who fixed it, and all the same, I’m still worried. She didn’t look in the cat’s direction in fear of her reaction, merely eating at her soup instead, “Thanks Absolem..” she replied nervously. Then she stopped eating and stared at Absolem shocked for a moment. Did he seriously just say that.. er..think that? How long have they been comparing me and Grey? We're not just trophies or show dogs, we're people!

Cheshire

Duchess? Why was she coming here? Quickly she pulled herself up and stood atop the house. She squinted her eyes as she looked into the distance. There you are, she praised herself upon seeing movement. She squinted harder, seeing that there were more than two people. Who else is with her? She pondered, trying to make out the figures. The speed at which the caravan was gaining ground was impressive. She didn't know Duchess could run like that. "Surely, she hasn't been sending my message personally. Why come here..?" Her stomach dropped. She wasn't running for the fun of it. She was fleeing. Why else would she come to the Mushroom Patch, unless it was to take refuge in Absolem's lair?

She swore to herself and faded off the roof, making herself visible at the door. She barged in, running pass the still sleeping boy and stopped before Caterpillar, only hearing the words "The house will disappear" "Are you insane?!" she cried out. The only thing that kept her from ringing the man's neck was that he seemed to be doctoring her contractor. She cocked her head at the sight, distracted for a pause, but quickly continued her tantrum. Her finger stroke towards the window, her arms flailing wildly, "Put the barrier back! Have you forgotten what else is out there looking for us?" She couldn't believe how idiotic the Chain was being at the moment, and he was supposed to be one of the wiser Chains! The only reason Duchess would have coming here was she was running, and from the looks of it others were too. That many people, Chain or not, were a beacon for Jabberwockey, and they were lighting the way to them. He's doomed us. The idiot's killed us all.

Her body was trembling as she was having a difficult time keeping herself under control. Various hues were swirling frantically about her, their activity mimicking the distress she was feeling. This was not the time to cause a fight. It may already be to late. Jabberwockey may have seen the house by now or was letting Duchess lead it to them. She gathered herself together and took a deep shaky breath, "Please tell me you have other defenses besides the barrier," Her cold eyes met the Caterpillar's and remained there, "Because if I'm right. We may be expecting other company beside Duchess and her friends." True, she might be overreacting, but everyone seemed to think they were safe within Absolem's walls. Did they forget how easily Jabberwockey destroyed her sanctuary? That was before the Thing had time to grow and get stronger. She knew the creature was out there, it was either sheer luck that they remained hidden this far or the Plague was just biding it's time. She told herself she was willing to fight, but now she found herself faulting in her logic. She wasn't fully healed. Even Absolem, though seemingly perkier, she feared wouldn't be up for the challenge. Things were happening too fast. She kicked mentally herself and rested her eyes on Rhia. She was happy the child's back was facing her. She didn't want her to witness her moment of despair. She sighed. Others were on the way and if Jabberwockey did make it's move at least it would have all of them to deal with.

I spy with my little eye...

Jabberwocky had come to the mushroom domain, while it sent it's minions to deal with Duchess, meaning to locate the hidden refuge of the rebels on it's own. With the incoming reports from it's generals however..it seemed soon it would have backup. Or..

A plan formed, and we sent to it's minions. They would capture the Duchess and her entourage..in a vice grip. The army chased them from behind, while Jabberwocky itself would close from the front. They would have no where to go, as the Spiderpots and other minor-minions harassed from the sides. A grin splits the skeletal features of the monster, as it turns from the Mushroom area. Unknown to the beast however..right then is when the Caterpillar's home looses it's stealth. The Cat and others are spared for the moment.

Reaching the plain that Duchess and her group flee across takes seconds, as the monster readies itself for some fun.

Arms raise high into the air, as Jabberwocky releases it's gathered force, having been preparing this trick to use on that Cat...but seeing it's need here. As the fingers spread and claw at the air the ground rocks and shakes...splitting as objects rip free. Black bones, made from the essence of Jabberwocky itself rip free, forming a wall; a fence of bone. Sealing off any way past it's position for about half a mile in both directions from it's position. On signal the Spiderpots would unleash hell, raining globs of goo down amongst the fleeing group..harassing and trying to infect them. This was just a feint however...meant to drive the group towards Jabberwocky.

Tibbs, Titan-Cook and Doormouse all follow Duchess' group, Tibbs keeping close to their heels, releasing growls and roars to drive them. Titan and Doormouse spread to the sides, meaning to herd the group- should they try breaking off or splitting up to escape they would be attacked by either dominated-Chain. It was a slaughter-house chute. Baying hounds to drive the sheep towards the waiting blade.

Jabberwocky itself took the time left to gather it's power once more- forming an array of bone-blades and spears, causing them to hover about it's frame. It would be ready to welcome the Duchess, the Twins and their Chains to it's ranks soon.

The setting changes from Wonderland to Down the Rabbit-Hole

Moonlight gestured wildly as the twins raced over. "What's the problem? We need to leave!" Sinistra yelled. Moonlight didn't care, she only worried about the twins. "Are you okay?" she asked them both. They ignored her. Oh well. They seemed okay, if a little shaken.

Suddenly, the Duchess grabbed the other girl's hand and ran off. Moonlight raced after them, behind Destra. "Wait up!" she called.

As they ran, their surroundings turned to mushrooms. The sight was curious, but Moonlight didn't stop to admire the view.

♠ The 'Queen' of Spades ♠

Fiore suppressed a frown at Aria's sudden, impulsive words.

Human beings ... always saying things they didn't mean ... making promises they couldn't keep
....


Everyone said they would be there, and everyone left him alone at the end. His own parents, siblings, friends ... everyone faded away with time.

Fiore was not about to make the same mistake of believing in a hollow promise again.

Outside, though, he showed no signs of his inner storm, smiling at the girl and using his gentlest tone.

"Thank you."

How old was he...? The question was, again, too closely related to the life he had chosen to leave behind. He couldn't answer it. He wasn't fully ready to remember the heartache his past seemed to be made up of yet.

Not now, not ever.

"Wonderland does not really have the conventional sense of time as in your world." he replied, "We Chains don't age, and neither do we die of natural causes. The only reason a Chain ages is if there is some change of the flow of energy inside Wonderland that inspires, requires or otherwise forces them to change."




Belca ... ? That sounds about right ....

As the Duchess grabbed her hand and began running, Belca elicited a low growl in the back of her throat. She knew the other woman was doing it for their own good but really, being dragged around like this, like a rag doll was simply humiliating. However, she didn't try to protest. After all, the Duchess' house had just been razed to the ground, she felt like the other deserved a break.

Duchess Sophie

The Duchess was no fool, anyone could see that the army was trying to shepherd them somewhere, the problem was that she couldn't do much about it except keep running. She looked at Belca, raising an eyebrow as the girl growled at her.

"Really Belca, now is not the time to pretend you're a wild animal," she said, letting go of her hand.

The girl certainly was peculiar but this was a rather stressful situation, perhaps this was how she dealt with it. The same way the Duchess was doing everything she could not to think of the cook or the pigs and momeraths or her home. No, grieving could wait until later. Right now she had to focus on making sure there was a later in which she could grieve.

Things definitely were looking grim though, even if they got to Absolem's house there was no guarantee they'd be able to fight off the approaching armies. Before Cheshire had left her house he'd mentioned returning to his contractor who she supposed was with Absolem, perhaps the cat was still there now, that would certainly help even out the odds in a battle but the cat's injuries had been pretty bad and there was no way they could be fully healed.

"What to do," she mused, as if trying to decided which type of icing to make for a cake, "I wonder if Cheshire could help us get away with one of it's shortcuts."

The cat had always had a mysterious way of getting about the place.

"By the gods!" exclaimed the Duchess, coming to a halt.

They had reached a dead end, the Duchess and her group were now exactly where the Jabberwocky wanted them to be. Before them rose a wall made out of bone, there was no way past it. If she looked carefully she could see the spiderpots that had destroyed her home. There was no way this was what the army had been herding the group towards, the spiderpots were clearly meant to drive them further in the desired direction. The Duchess was sure that at the end of the road, the Jabberwocky itself would be waiting.

"What an honnor it is to have the beast itself come to meet me," she said, taking off again so she wouldn't be hit by the spiderpots projectiles.

If the Jabberwocky wanted a fight then she'd give it one to remember, she no longer had a choice in the matter. There was no way she could defeat the Jabberwocky, not without the Vorpal Blade but perhaps there would be some small chance to escape. It was only the faintest glimmer of hope but it was all she had.

As the Jabberwocky came into view she slowed down and walked forward confidently. She would show the plague just how dangerous cornered animals could be.


Sinistra/Tweedle Dee & Destra/Tweedle Dum

The twins followed the Duchess, making sure to avoid any projectiles launched by the spiderpots.

Destra's eyes widened when he caught sight of the Jabberwocky. Nothing scared him more than the Crow but this came as a close second.

"We can't give up," said Sinistra, struggling to ignore the dread that was rising in his stomach.

Weapons of bone hovered around the Jabberwocky, each looking more deadly than the last. This would be a tough fight and neither twin was sure if they could win, not that they would ever admit it of course. In synchronity they looked at Moonlight and then at the Duchess before firmly grasping their weapons and preparing for battle.


Isaiah "Grey" Gris

Grey stared at the mushroom. Absolem was being enigmatic again, even in his dreams that hadn't changed, the man cleared lived, breathed and spoke in riddles.

"Everything just turns out to be a mystery, doesn't it?" Grey muttered, examining the mushroom, "The mushroom, the dream, this entire situation is all a huge puzzle."

He was certain that the mushroom wasn't poisonous, it just didn't have a dangerous vibe about it but all that told him was that he could eat it. Gazing at the colours he tried to search for some clue.

"White is such an expansive colour," he thought, "It just seems so vast, as if it can go on forever and ever while blue seems to compress everything. It's a colour of sadness and what other feeling would make you feel small?"

That had to be it. White would make him grow and blue would make him shrink, still, he didn't feel like testing them out. He was quite happy with his height. That's when he noticed Absolem was gone. He'd been so focused on the mushroom that he hadn't seen the man leave.


He woke slowly, rubbing his eyes. Something felt off about the air, it was almost like a feeling of menace was polluting it. Silently he got up and walked over to the man. The feeling of tension in the air was making him nervous.

"The white side makes you taller and the blue side makes you smaller," he said quietly, gently grabbing onto the mans shirt.
He was sure something serious was going on, he didn't need the cards to tell him that trouble was on the way. He kicked himself for not waking up sooner, perhaps if he'd noticed Absolem had disappeared earlier then he'd know what was happening.

"What's going on?" he asked.

Moonlight followed them as they ran. Suddenly, the Duchess stopped, followed by Destra. "Ouch!" Moonlight ran straight into him. "I'm sorry-" Her words broke off as she stared at the gigantic white wall rising up menacingly before them. "What - is that bone?" The sudden realisation dawned on Moonlight. As she prepared to run off back where they had come from, she distinctly heard a thundering behind them. The army was coming.

Moonlight ducked as a projectile sailed over her head. It came so close, she could feel the wind blow her hair around. The Duchess took off again, and the twins followed. Taken by surprise, Moonlight followed them, zigzagging in crazy circles to avoid the projectiles being launched at them.

Just then, an even scarier sight appeared. A large dragon-like form slithered forward. Yes, slithered. There was no absolute way to describe it, but the one thing Moonlight could identify was that this was bad news. Fear struck her hard, and she staggered slightly to wrap her mind around the fact that they would be fighting this... this... monster.

Moonlight grabbed for the person nearest to her, who turned out to be Sinistra. "Sinistra, you... you can't be serious. How are we going to..." She couldn't even finish her sentence. The only response she got was the twins tightening their grasps on their weapons. All she had was a tiny little rapier. How could it do anything to help the rest?

A boy walked towards them. The white side makes you taller and the blue side makes you smaller. The boy looked dazed. What's going on? Moonlight gazed at him intently. "Um... I think we have to... fight... defeat..." Again, her voice was raspy and soft, barely heard above the marching of the army. Moonlight tried to clear her throat, but it just made it worse. "Destra..." She appealed to Destra, hoping he would understand. "I... can't..."

Aria nodded as she listen to him, "Huh, that's interesting." Looking back ahead she saw the spring and did her best to contain herself. Aria had the urge to strip of her clothing and just jump in to enjoy the water, but with Fiore next to her, Aria kept her pace. "So if I just back track will I still get lost or should I be fine?" Aria didn't want him to have to sit around and wait somewhere just because there is a chance she could end up lost. The feeling of having to depend on someone else was going to drive Aria mad since she was use to doing things on her own. Walking up to the spring she pulled her shoes off along with her socks and dipped her feet in the water, "It feels wonderful."

♠ The 'Queen' of Spades ♠

Fiore suppressed a frown at Aria's sudden, impulsive words.

He could already tell the sheer thought of relying on someone else's help for something as simple as getting back was weighing down on her. Or was it just because she didn't feel comfortable with him ... ?

"Just follow the stone path. As long as you don't step outside you should be fine. And I mean that : Don't step outside the path no matter what. Things aren't quite right in Wonderland these days. Even though the Chess Board is essentially a separate entity, it's still a part of Wonderland. If the worlds start overlapping for some reason, this world, too, will get distorted. But the stone path is protected by ancient magic and safe." he replied, setting the kimono and tall stack of towels down by the spring. "I will be going on ahead of you, then. Enjoy your bath and remember not to stray from the road."

At least, he hoped so. So far, the path had always been safe, because it was the same path he had followed when he first fell into Wonderland, crafted by both him and his sister. Their combined power should be enough to keep it safe from distortion. However, times were changing.........

Fiore looked up at the slowly darkening sky, feeling the slight tinge of chill int he air and frowned. There was no doubt that something was going on in Wonderland. Even the Chess Board, distant and removed, was being affected by it.

'What are you planning, sister?'



Belca ... ? That sounds about right ....

Belca just heaved a sigh of relief as her hand was let go. She didn't mind being called a wild animal .. well, she did, but just a little bit. She had always known she was crude and very un-ladylike, saying what she wanted how she wanted when she wanted. It didn't bother her as much as it used to.

'Are we really on the right path ...?'

She had a really, really bad feeling about this whole thing. It wasn't really because of a particular reason, but the stench seemed to be growing worse as they ran blindly in a direction that was supposed to take them to safety. That couldn't be right, could it ...? And then there was the nagging feeling of unease that she couldn't quite place .....

She had been spacing out, as she found out when she barely stopped herself from colliding into a wall made of ...... bones?

Belca groaned. Really? Why couldn't she just have stayed up wherever she was actually from? Whatever happened there it couldn't have been worse than this! Or even in that strange watery hall, even that was surely better than this.

"What an honnor it is to have the beast itself come to meet me,"

That's it. The Duchess was officially crazy. Or maybe just in shock.

Her blood froze when they reached the ..... Thing they were obviously being herded towards all along.

So this was Jabberwocky?

Not only was the stench of decay overwhelmingly unbearable, but the sight alone .... slimy, was the only word that came to her mind.

Gagging slightly, she looked back towards the three Chains accompanying them. Were they serious? Fighting that? Was it even possible to damage it, far less kill it?

A boy came stumbling from somewhere, and Belca grimaced, feeling sorry for him. Poor guy just had to run in to this, didn't he?

He must have terrible luck.

But the other Contractor, Moonlight seemed to be taking care of him, so she concentrated on other matters.

Gesturing desperately to the Duchess while trying to look not quite so desperate, she was suddenly reminded of what the Duchess had said, making her grit her teeth.

The Jabberwocky didn't kill people, it corrupted them and used them as its puppets.

Like Hell was she going to be used as a puppet for anyone. She would rather die than that.

Her grip on the katana grew stronger and more determined as she moved to stand just to one side of the Duchess, far enough to not hinder her while close enough to watch for any sudden strikes from the Jabberwocky.

I guess there really is no getting out of it, huh.

"Duchess, this might be a good time to tell me whether or not you know exactly when my 'power' from the Contract is going to emerge, and what it might be. Before, you know, we all die a horrible death at this Thing's hands ... err, whatever it has instead of hands."

Absolem / Caterpillar
(PM me if I didn't respond to something, considering my situation, I highly predict I haven't responded to everything I needed to..)

Absolem raised an eyebrow, it seriously took the cat that long to figure out Duchess's intentions? He tried to not pay mind to the cat's slow deduction process, so he merely glanced to Rhia, then back at the livingroom, "We haven't time, I cannot leave her to surrender to the Jabberwocky, we cannot afford to let that parasite grow any stronger than it already has." Absolem grabbed a few herbal mixtures for headaches, knowing he'd need them in just a few mere moments, "Regardless, we're in this fight no matter what, she's lured it to my location, if those flowers die, we're sitting ducks. I find it better to be on her side, than fighting every man for himself, no? It's common sense, for once, no time for riddles. This is much too serious.." Absolem was once again pale, but mostly due to his rushing, grabbing matches, candles, and containers for the herbal mixtures, each floating around him as he began his idea. I can't let them know I'm unsure we'll make it through this. Look reassuring, look self-assured..

"Put the barrier back? I shall not." Absolem rubbed his temples, staring firmly at the cat, "When the Jabberwocky reaches the flowers, regardless of the barrier, the house will be revealed, if the flowers die, so does the barrier, at least if we're all together we stand a fighting chance." he spat back, "Use your head, I know you're more clever than that." Absolem moved from the room, walking out and almost not even paying a single bit of mind to those around him, "It's a bit of a situation at the moment. Hide yourself, or at least arm yourself.. when the barrier goes down.. I've got a plan, but this is going to be very painful for the both of us, far more than you can imagine." Absolem mumbled to Grey, not standing by a single second longer. He flung the door to his home open before floating up atop of his abode, sitting on the large mushroom. He squinted his eyes, trying to locate the Duchess. If Jabberwocky killed the flowers, this would become a bit difficult, but he tried his best to send her a message through the flowers. -The house isn't very far.. I see you've run into trouble however..when it kills those flowers my home will be vulnerable. I am going to keep it hidden as long as I can, but as you know my contractor and myself will pay a dire price for me using my abilities to cloak the entire structure.- Absolem began preparing himself, rubbing his temples nervously. He'd never attempted to control the barrier on his own, he wasn't even sure if it would work, but he knew if it did, they had at most, ten minutes before he or Grey would be rendered unconcious if not both.

He began drinking one of the mixtures, letting everything land around him, the candles lighting themselves, almost instantly emitting a calming arouma around the house. He took a deep inhale, a faint white smoke rapidly coating the area, but not near enough to hinder one's sight. He finally located Duchess, hoping the flowers got the message before they were destroyed by the Jabberwocky. Though, it did have to find out which flowers controlled the barrier, and around Absolem's house was surrounded by poisonous mushrooms, snapping shrooms and giant venus fly traps. His 'garden' was not a playground by far. Especially the backyard. Absolem had a habit of collecting beautiful things, but his destructive collection was far more massive. His entire backyard was a death trap waiting to happen. He knew it would possibly only pose a distraction, but if needed, he assumed it would at least bide them some time and distance between the groups and the infection taunting them.

"Heh.. Grey was right about the mushroom.." He mumbled to himself. He couldn't help but be amused.

----

Rhia


Rhia tensed when she heard Absolem's thoughts. He isn't sure that we're going to survive this? How unsure is he..? She tried to pry furthur into the mint haired man's mind, but he seemed to be avoiding exact answers, even in his mind. No time for riddles? You've caught on to my ability, you're blocking solid answers from me as much as you can, even if I tell Cheshire, it's not like this information is really going to help.. It'll only panic her more. The blue haired girl finished her soup quickly standing up and wiping her mouth, "I guess we're in for a fight?" she asked tilting her head curiously. How..was this going to work? Neither her nor Grey knew anything offensive yet. They'd never really practiced their abilities. What were the weaknesses of the creatures tamed by the Jabberwocky? She shivered at the idea.

She turned to face Cheshire, shaking her head, "He isn't lying. I saw it in his head." she mumbled under her breath softly, "Like a motion picture.. If what he has planned works, he's going to be in a world of pain.." she ran a hand through her hair, looking at the ground, shivering a bit. Whatever she'd seen, it obviously had her very frightened. She didn't even have the control to hide the fear from her Chain, which she normally would have at least attempted, "What can me and Grey do? We won't feel satisfied just sitting here or running..." She whispered at Cheshire, this time pleadingly, "We're here for a reason, and right now I feel pretty useless to this point." She admitted, although it stung her pride for a moment, " Just tell us what to do and I'm sure he'll agree with me, we'll gladly do it to help." She blinked over at the human male afterwards, as if looking for his approval, "Besides, I need to be there just in case he passes out, right?" she grinned at Cheshire, "We want to help protect Wonderland too."

Blockade

As the group came to the end of their escape; the bone wall a clear dead-end, and there was the puppet master.

Jabberwocky stood before those gathered, a swirling chaos of bone-based weapons coalescing about it's form..with a motion or a word the swirling mass would rip through those before it, shredding flesh and spreading corruption. But there was a pause. The beast did not kill them, it held back it's power, hollow skull-eyes looking at the Duchess and her group without emotion. While the woman moved closer, her pace slowed now, the army of the beast closed from behind. Titan, Doormouse and Tibbs spread in three directions, with the Spiderpots and the smaller beasts ranged between. Escape would prove difficult.

A hand raises, Jabberwocky allowing several blades to slice past the sides of Duchess' head. It's voice, when it comes, sounds as if several were talking at once, "Far enough Ṗ̴̷̛̯̹͙̹͔͇̘̫͕̠͓̾̇̽̒̋ͪ̾̈́͆̈͊̚͝ͅI̸̮̙̱̼͇͚̤̘͚̪̮͎͈͈̳͇̮̗͑̽̓ͮ͊͊̇͐́G̴̷̴̴̺̜̦͈̖̲͉͕͔͙̩̫͈̳ͭͣ̌̈́͆̐̔̑̌̐̇̌͋͋̃̚͟ͅ-̸̡̡̲̟͇͖͕̥̤̖̝̬̘̤͑ͪ̒̑̋̒̉̃̀͊͆̌͂ͫ̌ͯͨ̚͝͝Ẁͧ͋̇̈͊̒̋̉̏̃̐ͣ̐͌̃ͯ̀҉̨̱̲̗̤͇͕̞̲̦̰͢Ơ̶̫̲̜͎̗̫̹̣̗̞̎̋ͯͦ͋̃̄ͥ̽̏ͪ̚͝M̧̳͇̩̰̫͙͇̙̃̑̓ͥ̈́̿ͧ̀̄̈̏ͩ̍ͦ͐̆͗̃Aͥͥ̈̓ͪ̃̄̋̄͂̉ͥ̿͌̄̀͏̱̝̼̘̜̜͓͓̟ͅN̸̶̷̵̢̫͖̬̭͖̬̺͊̅ͫͥ̓̂ͅ. Explain to me why I should not simply end you and those you care for this instant."

Tibbs' growl sounds, it's eyes catching sight of the Caterpillar's revealed home, massive fangs expose themselves as the mighty beast lets a bass rumble echo from it's throat. Jabberwocky can see through the beast's eyes, and motions with it's head for the canine monster to go check things out. A single leap clears the wall, the group and lands the horror poised in the middle of a flower patch. Corruption and rot spreads from it's feet's landing spots, rippling outward in waves. Taint would spread in the beast's wake. It was almost time for Tibbs to awaken fully. As the levels of essence rise in the thralled Chains they undergo changes...until they awaken as fully formed avatars.

With Tibbs gone the gathered now had a slightly better chance for escape...though where they would go was of some debate. Already the lands they had fled through were warping and rotting from the gathering of Jabberwocky's forces. To return there would be foolish, they would simply be in this same predicament again. The only way out was through. But that would mean passing the beast, it's wall...and Tibbs. Things looked bleak.

The weeping screeches of Doormouse sound across the clearing, grating on the nerves of those gathered, each sob and wail stabbing into ears and minds. Not all corruption was physical. Soon the gathered group would be cringing from the sounds, holding their ears as the volume seems to rise...each sob and wet snuffle meant for them alone. Twitches would be the first sign, then head aches...building until one felt the world's pressure weighing down in painful throbs. The final symptom would be nose bleeds, as Doormouse's strange voice tore away at the sanity and minds of those gathered. Despair would rip their minds to bloody tatters. This would take time, hours..days maybe..but Jabberwocky had plenty of time- Duchess and her group were not leaving soon.

(OOC NOTE: Gonna ignore the stuff about Grey wandering in, as I am unsure if the author even HAD the boy join the group- not that he could have...the wall and all.)

Aria watched Fiore leave then proceeded to remove her clothes. Without a second thought she dived in and swam towards the center of the spring. Coming up for air she wiped her hair out of her face and sighed, "This feels nice!" Aria began to swim around when she saw what appeared to be shampoo and conditioner. Swimming over to the edge she grabbed a lavender bottle and chuckled, "He must really like this color. I'm not surprised though." Pouring some of the thick substance into her palm the smell of lavender invaded her senses. Lathering the shampoo in her hair Aria dunked her head under the water to rinse the soap suds out. When she knew that all the shampoo was out she rose back to the surface. Grabbing the other bottle she once again smelled lavender from the condition and repeated her actions. Going under she made sure that all the conditioner was out and pulled herself out of the spring sitting on the edge. Seeing a small bottle Aria assumed that it was some kind of body wash and picked it up. Opening the lid she could smell roses and decided that she liked the rose/lavender mix and poured just enough to clean her body. Lathering her body she stood up and dived back into spring rinsing her body. Aria decided to stay under water and swam around until she had to go back for air.

Aria saw that it had gotten darker and swam back to the edge, and proceeded to grab a towel while climbing out. Aria dried herself off then looked over to the kimono. It was black which was one of her favorite colors and the purple sash matched. Grabbing the soft material Aria let the towel fall to the ground and slid her arms through the sleeves of the kimono. Tying the sash around her waist Aria gathered everything and headed back up the stone path. She had to remind herself not to stray from the path and kept walking. She began to wonder if Fiore was back at his cottage or still walking around the chess board. Aria shrugged it off and felt herself becoming tired. "I'm definitely going to bed once I get back to his cottage." Yawning, Aria could see the outline of the cottage as she ascended the hill and felt relief wash over her. "Finally." Walking up to the door she slid it open and walked down the hall to the left opening the first door she came across. She could see a bed near the center of the room and a table next to it. Making her way to the bed she set her clothes on the table with the towel in a neat pile before sliding into the bed. Feeling the soft mattress mold to her form Aria smiled and closed her eyes. "I'll make sure to wake up before Fiore comes back." With that being the last thing to pass her lips Aria drifted off sleep.

Cheshire

She paused, mouth gaping, for a short moment, completely dumbfounded by the man's stupidity. Having the barrier up was one of their very few advantages. If, by some miracle, Jabberwockey didn't see their location they could have the element of surprise on their side. When the Jabberwocky reaches the flowers, regardless of the barrier, the house will be revealed, if the flowers die, so does the barrier.. She could feel herself twitching upon his explanation. Though, as much as she wanted to sink her claws into the man's flesh, she chose instead to let her emotions play out upon her. "What's the use of a barrier if one can see through it after a certain point?!" She growled, patches of skin changing fluidly in waves of multi-hued fur to flesh and back again. Her eyes, which blazed greens, blues and yellows continuously with the change, latched upon the man as he paced. She wasn't a fool. She'd take her anger out on the Beast and then once that was taken care of, if they survived, well she and Absolem would have some..quality time together, but seeing as Caterpillar was making himself useful, she sneered and turned, grumbling aloud, "Are all men this stupid?" Her change-tantrum stopped short when she met her contractor's gaze. She felt her cheeks flush and suddenly found herself worrying what her contractor was thinking. She pulled her arms across her chest and gazed down at the girl, now completely 'normal'. Her ears perked and her tail thrashed about behind her as she listened to the girl talk. A wry grin stretched her lips as she took in Rhia's words. She has a point. Everyone's going to need to play a part to survive this. She offered the girl a cynical smile, acknowledging her statement. "I'll hold you to that."

Seeing as time was running short, she pulled Rhia with her and followed the Caterpillar. She stopped before exiting the house and looked over the poor, groggy boy. Poor sod, she thought, feeling a twang of pity for the child. Prob'ly'll never even make it to puberty.. "Come," she mumbled, grabbing him as well, "I'd keep with your Chain, boy. Don't let him leave you behind." She dragged them both towards the door before fading herself and the contractors upon the mushroom roof. She stopped behind Absolem, pausing to see the situation further ahead. "Here's your contractor. Make some use of him if you can," After Grey previous 'episode' she wasn't convinced the child would be much help. It would take a lot from him for her to think otherwise, but that wasn't her problem. She had Rhia afterall and hopefully the girl would stay true to her word.

Seeing Jabberwockey's bone fence and his terrible titans a ways off she shivers. Things were ugly. Very ugly. Though despite the almost certain death, and/or corruption, they all were heading towards, she was excited to feel that familiar itch in her fingers. Before, it was just her and the Plague, this time around she would have reinforcements. "I hope you're not waiting for that thing to come to you," Her anticipation was growing ever so steadily seeing as one of Jabberwockey's Beasts launched itself towards their direction, it's horrible roar grating within Cheshire's ears. "I doubt that'd be wise." Her fingers were now growing and hardening, becoming the knife-like weapons she used before. She stepped back and twisted upon herself and before anyone had time to exhale she was once again a monstrous tiger-beast. She dug her claws into the Mushroom and licked over her rows of jagged teeth. Satisfied, she grinned, revealing her shark-toothed-mouth in an awful smile. "I apologize ahead of time, Abs," she growled, stepping towards Rhia, "But I assure you it will be worth the pain," She wouldn't face Jabberwockey and his minions personally. The effort she was putting out already had her body burning, but pain could be dealt with. "I know a way to help. It'd be best if you followed." She began to back away, nodding at Rhia to get upon her back. All the while her smile was growing, especially when the roof beneath them began to shudder. "And you better be quick."

Her shortcut to the Patch was a ways off, but at least she was capable of travel now. It wouldn't take long to reach it in her current form, she just hoped Absolem wouldn't continue the idiot-streak he seemed to be having and would follow her. Taking things one-versus-one was stupid. Everyone needed to get together and as much as she'd love to leave Duchess and her friends to fend for themselves as punishment for bringing the army to them, she wouldn't let Jabberwockey take on more Chains. Her claws were itching and she giggled at the transformation she held inside. Oh yes, she cooed as if answering it's stirs, We'll have fun this time around.

Isaiah "Grey" Gris

Grey looked around nervously as Cheshire led him to Absolem. Rhia was right, they needed to help in any way they could but how much use was he going to be? He didn't even have a weapon, unless his tarot cards worked in more mysterious ways than he could imagine. Smiling he lost himself amongst thoughts of throwing the cards like shuriken.

"Like that would ever happen," thought Grey to himself.

Still, it was worth a try, even if it was only to pass the time untill someone found a use for him. Picking a card at random he looked for a target and settled on a mushroom a short distance away. Sighing he filcked the card from his hand experimentally and watched in amazement as it flew towards the mushroom and struck it with a thud.

"That is so awesome!" he said excitedly, "But now I've lost a card."

He was about to go get it when the card shimmered and disappeared from view, reappearing at the top of his deck.

"Well, at least I'm armed now,I still don't know how much help I'll be though." he thought.

Everyone seemed preoccupied with something in the distance and from the sounds of it, there were people in trouble. As he looked at the giant bone wall in the distance anxiety began to well up within him, he hated the thought of being unable to help.

"Absolem, why are we just sitting here? Can't we do anything to help?" he asked, wringing his hands frantically.

Pacing to and fro he flicked a card into the air, watching it spin around before catching it again between two fingers. He felt so useless, there was no way he could help Absolem and there was no way he could help the people in trouble. If only there was some way he could carry everyone away from danger. Frustrated he looked at the card in his hand. Slowly an idea came to him, his eyes widening.

"Please please work," her whispered, rushing outside.

The card he held was the Chariot. His ability had worked with the Ace of Wands, perhaps it would work with this one too.

"Come on," he muttered, focusing all his concentration on the card.

Slowly a glow formed around the card and then disappeared in the blink of an eye. Before him stood some form of armoured vehicle big enough to hold him, Absolem, Cheshire, Rhia and several other people, he couldn't see how one was meant to drive it though, perhaps it was automatic? He'd cross that bridges when he came to it, for now the only important thing was that he had a way to help everyone escape.

"Absolem!" he called out, "I think I can get everyone out of here."

The wall of bone would prove a problem, he'd just have to hope that the people on the other side would be able to get past it before the vehicle disappeared again. Who knew how badly it would effect him this time?


Duchess Sophie

The Duchess blinked at the Jabberwocky as the blades fly past her face and crossed her arms, as if to show that she wasn't impressed. Inside she was terrified, she had no idea whether she could make it out of this but she was determined to do everything in her power so that at least Belca, Moonlight and her son could get away.

"Pig woman?!" she cried out in disgust, "What a terribly rude way to greet someone. You dissappear for all these years, never write and then come back calling me Pig Woman. The nerve. Do you know what I think? I think if you could have 'ended' me in an instant then you would have done so by now."

This was a risky tactic but it was the only one she could use. If she acted as if she was more powerful than the Jabberwocky then perhaps it would believe her, that or make it angry. An furious Jabberwocky wouldn't be ideal but it was something she could work with. Angry enemies made mistakes.

"Look at you, needing an entire army just to lead me to you, am I too much of a woman for you to handle?" she continued.

While she spoke her eyes were taking in every detail of her surroundings trying to work a way out of the situation.

"And you," said the Duchess, angrilly addressing what had once been the Dormouse, "Give it a rest, nobody cares. You're starting to tick me off."

An idea began to form in her mind as she looked at the wall. It was made of bone and far too tall to climb over but that didn't mean she couldn't go through it, after all, bones did have a tendancy to break, all they neded was enough impact.

"Unfortunately I have no idea about you ability," she whispered to Belca, "But now would be an excellent time for it to manifest. Get ready to run."

Everybody was in exactly the right position, she was between Destra and the wall, that was the most important part.

"Destra, when I say so I need you to send as many birds as you can as fast as you can hurtling towards the wall," she whispered, "Sinistra, I need you, Belca and Moonlight and France to hold off everything while I focus."

She was going to have to move soon, the Jabberwocky certainly wouldn't wait for long. She'd just have to hope they could outrun it for as long as it took to reach help.

"This is all Cheshire's fault," she muttered, "If I ever see that cat again I'm going to punch it in the face."

It was now or never. She just prayed that luck would be on her side.

"Now!" she shouted.


Sinistra/Tweedle Dee & Destra/Tweedle Dum

Destra, looked at the Duchess from the corner of his eye. She had to be crazy, there was a huge risk that the birds would hit her too, not to mention that expecting him to do something so terrifying was a lot to ask.

The twins looked at each other and knew that if they wanted any chance of escape then they'd have to do as the Duchess asked, no matter how much it scared them.

Without warning the Duchess shouted out and Destra turned to face the wall, focusing on creating the biggest barage of birds he could handle without fainting from fear. As each bird passed by the Duchess's head it was transformed into a giant cannonball which slammed into the bone wall with great force, smashing things into pieces.

"So that was her plan," thought Sinistra as he turned his attention to keeping the army at bay, "She plans to create a hole in the wall for us to get through."

More determined than ever he ignored his fear and began to send birds of his own towards the army as well as launching stones at it with his catapault. He'd just have to hope that anything that got close would be taken care of by Belca, Moonlight and the Duchess's boy, hadn't she refered to him as France?

Finally the hole seemed to be big enough because the next thing the twins knew they were all runnig towards it. As they was about to pass through the gap in the wall, Sinistra and Destra felt compelled to look at the sky. Doing so almost made them shriek in horror. Gliding just above the top of the wall was the Crow, the one that always seemed to be hunting them. Terrified they continued to run but not before they saw it dive into the masses of the Jabberwocky's army, tearing through minion after minion. White light began to shoot out from the giant bird untill soon it was nothing but a ball of pure white light. As it faded a little a girl was revealed, a white aura surrounding her. Time seemed to slow as she turned to watch the twins run off. With a smile she turned back to face the horde, attacking violently.

Somewhere in the distance the twins suddenly look at each other, almost stopping.

"Did you feel that?" asked Sinistra.

There was no way they could mistake that prescence. All along, the Crow had been the Rattle.

Destra looked back sadly and then continued to run, speaking only one word, "Raven."

#, as written by Grahf
Reap

Duchess made her move, after some ramble, and it would have gotten her killed- taunting the beast the way she did, as if it couldn't see through her bluff. Her failing was in thinking the monster gave a shit. Jabberwocky didn't care- about her, about it's own army or about any bluff the Pig woman made. It would have ended her then, and taken the rest as it's thralls just out of spite...had the barest flicker of movement not caught it's eye. For, as the stupid wench gave her command..others responded. The bird-into-ball trick would have failed; Jabberwocky would have simply altered the wall's power as needed- thickening and hardening the bones before impact. But it was distracted by several barrels rolling down out of the woods.

Sparks shot out of one side of each barrel, fuses.

There was no time to do anything but watch as the barrels tumbled into the middle of it's horde...and split the air with a clap of thunder. There must have been something mixed in with whatever served as explosive, something that flowed like liquid and burned with a wicked heat. Jabberwocky's mouth gaped inhumanly wide, and it released a sound that shook the very ground- cracking the dirt below it's feet and causing tendrils of it's darkness to writhe and spasm; it felt pain. As the fire swept through it's minor minions it left nothing but ash in it's wake..Cook was to large to burn that easy, and was tall enough that Doormouse sought safety by climbing onto it's shoulders. That was her final mistake.

A smaller sound, a pop really, and Doormouse's head exploded in a bloody mist.

As her body fell, missing it's head but slightly alive still, Cook's arms move to cradle the body before turning and fleeing; Jabberwocky's fear and pain driving all of it's minions away. They would disperse, making harder targets before regrouping farther away- Spiderpots providing sporadic covering fire for the mass. What should have been a retreat turned into a rout, as precise pops sound, dropping creatures as they fled- the Twin's birds taking their toll as well.

Rage, fear and pain filled the beast as it swept it's gaze across the treeline; it couldn't see the attackers though, no matter how hard it tried. There were things blurring there, strange movements, but nothing it could understand. Something was picking apart it's army..and it was doing it with ease. In it's anger it forgot about the Duchess and the others, sending it's blades scything through the trees...but hitting nothing but trees. Seeing bows falls and trees topple but no spurts of blood only drove the monster into further fits of anger.

With a howling bellow the creature dove into the woods, tearing it's way through trees and stone alike, seeking invisible foes. Unknown by the Jabberwocky but it was being led away by several of the harassing agents. To them it was a game. They took turns leading it this way and that, twisting and turning the path..but always taking it farther away. It would be a bit before the monster calmed down enough to realize the ploy...and may give the Duchess and others time to escape.

Tibbs was still there though.

Jabberwocky's fear and rage shot through the hound like a spike of power- driving it into a change. In that moment Tibbs awoke. Rising onto it's hind legs and tilting back it's head it releases a howl, it's mass shifting and changing. The Avatar of Fear had shown it's face. Tall, taller than the Cook by several feet at least, and built like an Abrams tank. Broad shoulders ripple with muscles, arms long and coiled with strength- ending in powerful talloned hands. No two people could look at Tibb's face and see the same thing- to look upon the creature was to look upon fear; what you held deep in your heart...you secret hidden animal terror...it saw and displayed. Roughly man-shaped in form, if you ignored it's tail and hooves, it was a terror built for battle.

And it was standing between the two groups of Wonderlanders.

The bone wall shattered, both from the impacts and from the Jabberwocky leaving the area, leaving nothing to stop the Chains and Contractors from entering the mushroom patch...save the towering beast of Fear. Turning swiftly it unleashed the full force of it's gaze upon the group, before releasing a savage growl and speaking, "My Master relays apologies for leaving without propper farewells, I am to address this."

#, as written by Bani
Belca ... ? That sounds about right ....


"I'm sure it would." Belca mumbled to herself. Taking the situation in consideration, it would be even better if her power had something to do with miracles, because they sure as hell needed one right now to survive.

Their miracle came in the form of large barrels rolling down. appearing suddenly and explosively.

Coughing thanks to the smoke, Belca dodged falling debris .. or, more accurately, sprays of blood and other ... body parts she didn't want to particularly think about, looking for the Duchess.

As it cleared, she spotted the others.
"Hey, you all alright?" she called, rather unnecessarily she supposed, because if the Jabberwocky had been driven off, that as more than worth a few scratches and wounds.

"My Master relays apologies for leaving without propper farewells, I am to address this."


She gulped, damn that Jabberwocky, and damn that Queen of Hearts.

"Its fine, its a dream, you'll wake up." she tried to convince herself. Only problem being, it wasn't really working near as well as it used to be, now that she was coming to accept the fact that she only escaped into the typical 'this is all a dream' logic only when she didn't like the reality facing her.

"You know, I'm pretty sure we don't really mind if you go ahead and follow him, no need for fancy farewells. They're kinda dull anyway." she piped up, trying to distract the Thing while she mentally assessed its weaknesses, searching for an opening.


♠ The 'Queen' of Spades ♠

Fiore picked up some peaches and put it into his basket. He had to go out to collect something for their meal - he was a vegetarian living almost entirely on fruit, and he hoped Aria wouldn't mind terribly, because they literally had nothing else except trees and tree spirits and the Five Chains on the Chess Board. Not that he was complaining, he had meant it to be that way.

Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed something swirl, before starting to take a vaguely humanoid shape.
"Allista?" he called out, recognising the whirl of red petals as one of his favourite tree spirits.

'The beginning of the end draws near.' Allista communicated non-verbally, through telepathy, making him frown.. Even though she could hear and see and sense, she couldn't speak. 'Jabberwocky is free.'

His violet eyes hardened into cool amethysts. "Is my sister behind this?"

'That I do not know, my Lord. As you are aware, we hold no sway over the forest surrounding Jabberwock's pit. He was spotted in Wonder Land by several of my Brothers and Sisters, but no definite information could be gained, for not many lived to tell a detailed account of his advance.'

Of course, the Beast spread filth and corruption to everything around it, and that included trees.

"Has anyone made a move yet?"

'Neither the Queen nor your Sister seem to be interested in direct confrontation. The Jabberwocky was last seen amssing a large troop, marching towards the Caterpillar's Shroom Garden. There have been reports of the Duchess' home being razed to the ground, but I fear we could not find anyone to confirm them.'

"That just proves it then, doesn't it? I suppose all our contacts in those parts have ceased communicating?" Millace straightened, dusting his kimono, before turning homewards.

"Tell me everything you managed to salvage, Allista."

'It is largely conjecture at this point, Your Highness, but it would appear the Jabberwocky is gathering an army in which he desires to incorporate all the Chains.'

That would mean danger for his beloved Chess Board as well. No matter how far removed it was from Wonder Land proper, if Wonder Land was destroyed under Jabberwocky's corruption, the Chess Board would inevitably be affected too.

Fiore increased his pace. He had to get to Aria and make sure she was safe.

He was just a bit too late.

"What do you think you are doing here?" he snapped, feeling the presence even before it came into his sight.




My Name Is [font=papyrus]Alice

[size=145][font=monotype corsiva]Manifesting in a spray of her characteristic red mist, Alice bent over Fiore's bed, examining the girl sleeping peacefully, unaware of her presence.

'She looks so weak .... I must say I'm disappointed in you, brother. But then, its not like you had a choice, did you? Isolating yourself like that....'

She turned as her Little Brother burst in through the door, obviously he had been anticipating some kind of attack or distortion already.

"You wound me, brother. Could I not have come to see you?"

Aria's Dream


Aria was looking around and noticed that she was in a dojo with people. Looking down she saw that she was wearing normal clothes but the person across from her was in a man with a karate uniform on. Aria saw that he had a black belt and had a feeling she was in for a fight by the stance he was in. Narrowing her eyes Aria got into a similar stance and without hesitation the man charged at her. Blocking his first punch wasn't the issue, his knee meeting her side and sending her to the right was. Landing Aria shook her head and stood back up turning to face the man. Glaring Aria was the one to make the next move by waiting till the last second then with all her force round house kicked him. Watching him fly across the room Aria ran towards him, refusing to let him have a chance to catch his breath. Grabbing him by the front of his uniform Aria threw him through the wall that lead to outside and followed suit. Seeing him standing up with a smirk Aria knew something bad was going to happen. Taking the same stance she did before Aria was about to attack until she saw his hands form fire balls. Magic!!! Cursing Aria dodged the first fire ball only to have the second hit her on the chest. Hissing in pain Aria forced herself to keep moving and ran into the woods trying to escape the man.

After running for what seemed like forever Aria hid behind a tree to catch her breath. She could feel her lungs burning and tried to calm down before the man found her.Hearing the leaves crunch under the mans feet Aria bit her lip and began to fiddle with her bracelet. I can't let him find me. I can't let him win! Looking around she was trying to find a way to hide without being heard when the smell of lavender and roses drifted across the air. Inhaling deeply Aria smiled and followed the scent into a small garden where a bow with arrows laid on a rock. Walking over she picked the bow and arrows up Aria saw her hand where Fiore made the contract glow making the bow pulse. "Wow..." The weapon stopped pulsing but Aria could still feel power coursing through it. Turning around she saw the man waiting for her. Smirking Aria raised the bow and placed the arrow in its proper spot, "For some reason I know I won't miss." Taking a deep breath she pulled the arrow back and let it go. The arrow flew across the clearing and hit the man's chest piercing the heart. The man let out a scream and released one more fire ball. Aria felt the fire hit her chest once more and screamed.


End of Aria's Dream


Aria sat up with a hiss and grabbed her chest. Taking the time to calm down she looked down at her chest, "That felt so real..." Turning she stifled the gasp as she saw a girl and Fiore in the room, "Umm...what's going on?"

(OOC: I will add all my italics and bolds later.. I am exhausted, hungry and worn out..hopefully when this hype in my irl calms down I will be able to put more thought into my posts instead of rushing to try and consume the information and respond..for that I apologize..)

Absolem


Absolem's eyes darkened as Cheshire barked at him. Annoying.. I don't have time for things such as this. He ran a hand through his hair, clenching his jaw to resist throwing the cat across the clearing for giving him such a look, "The flowers control the barrier. It wasn't built to keep out the Jabberwocky, but unwanted dwellers of Wonderland. I created it AFTER Jabberwocky was imprisoned so I didn't quite prepare it for such a challenge, "Sorry it doesn't live up to your expectations Cheshire." He snapped back, the candles soothing his headache. He shot the feline a menacing glare, daring her to say much more on the matter. She was truly irritating his mental strain in all the wrong places at the moment, "Jabberwocky will NOT see us unless he abolishes those flowers." and he pointed to the plant life at the west wall of his house by the window. He placed them rather strategically. The infection wouldn't reach them until the very last moment as it neared the house. It bought them time. It bought them stealth, “I’m sure we are.” Absolem rolled his eyes bemused by the feline’s statement. I was prepared for a lot of things, but Jabberwocky was not one of them.
Absolem turned his eyes to Grey, blinking when she put the boy behind him, “Alright. Well. If you have a plan, it’s best to use it now. I can buy us all a decent amount of time. If I do not have to protect my home. I can easily create a new one.” He rubbed his temples. He already accepted the fact he was losing the home he’d had since the beginning of his stay in wonderland.

Absolem gazed upon the wall as well, trying to come up with a solution. He couldn’t take something that massive down with his mere mental capacity. It would kill him and possibly Grey as well. Absolem tilted his head, “All I can do in this situation is bide everyone here time of invisibility to that infection, I may not stay here, but I have to stay relatively close. If you’ve got an idea, do tell.” Absolem still hadn’t fully recovered from their last escape.. the strain was obvious in his deduction skills… his strategic mind was practically fried. Using his telekinesis for extended periods strained his ability to think. Now was not the time to be suffering from repercussions. He stood up brushing himself off, “I’ll have no choice but to accept that offer.” He turned his gaze over to Grey, smiling a bit.

Absolem nodded, “We’re going to help.. I’m going to roll with Cheshire’s idea, and at the very last second I’ll tell the flowers to flee if they are capable.” He rubbed his temples. He wasn’t sure what was going on, but every so often since he helped Rhia and Grey escape.. he was losing his vision for a moment now and then.

“First we need a distraction Grey. I love that you’re trying to help…but what good does it do if the Jabberwocky is stuck on our trail forever..?” The man asked curiously. He put his hands on his shoulders, “I have an idea.. when the time is right…use this to carry everyone to safety once we’ve got the right time to flee. Without the vorpal blade..we can’t do anything to the Jabberwocky. So stay hidden and in the distance. Cheshire will send you the signal and that’s when you come in for the rescue boat retrieval leave at the south gate.. alright? The east gate is a suicide mission.” He tapped the boy on the head, messing up his hair. Then he sighed, pulling away and tugged at his own green hair, clenching and unclenching his eyes repeatedly until his vision returned to him full-fledged. Absolem jumped from the roof, floating down to safety, looking over to Cheshire before following behind her. He used his abilities to send him propelling forward, so speed wasn’t really an issue. He needed to relay the message that they had an escape route. “Grey has the get-away vehicle. We just need the distraction. We can’t beat it without the sword.. as much as that irritates me. We need it. We need a human and the sword..” he hissed irritated. Why would the Queen let something like this happen? He grinned when the flowers clawed at his mind, informing him of a turn of events. He rubbed his temples, looking over to Cheshire deciding the word would be enough to relay the needed message, “Bandersnatch..” and his menacing grin widened a bit, “Sounds like the distraction we needed.”

Rhia


Rhia looked to Absolem apologetically. He didn’t deserve it. The whole time he was just trying to protect them and Cheshire was scared, so it wasn’t her fault either, but this wasn’t getting them anywhere. She bit her bottom lip before she decided to voice her own opinions, “It wasn’t his fault.. he bought us time to rest, he kept us safe this long.. can’t we just be a little grateful to Absolem? Whether or not he opened his home up.. wouldn’t she have drawn the Jabberwocky here looking for it herself?” She sighed at that bit, gripping the sides of her dark blue pants. She wasn’t sure how Cheshire would respond, if she’d like that she’d spoken up, but she really didn’t mind at the moment. Absolem was getting blamed for everything and she owed both Absolem AND Cheshire her life. When Cheshire mentioned holding her to her word she just smiled and nodded. I wouldn’t have it any other way you silly cat, “Alright. That’s what I was banking on.”

Rhia followed behind, keeping a good pace before giggling at Grey, “You look tired.” She laughed, then frowned at Cheshire’s thoughts about the boy. That wasn’t nice.. she thought to herself, sighing a bit. She bit her bottom lip, looking over at Cheshire nervously, “I’m not sure about what I am capable of..but I’m willing to try anything to help.” She reassured the feline, who seemed to have growing worries and anxiety. She reach with her free hand, petting the cat again. It was a little awkward, but she wanted to soothe the cat a little. To reassure her that she’d do her best, “Like I said before. I’m not letting anyone change me. Turning into one of those things counts.. and I still owe you and Absolem. I’ve got to redeem myself.” She smirked a bit, then she felt her expression fade. Cheshire definitely wasn’t too fond of Absolem and Grey.. and eventually they’d have to fight Absolem and Grey as well.. She didn’t like the sound of that. I don’t want to fight them.. they’re my friends.

Apologize for what? She was very confused. Maybe this is why Absolem was trying to act on his own? Everyone had their own ideas and no one was relatively willing to share them, “How the hell are we all supposed to work together if no one is listening to eachother, sharing their ideas!?” she snapped, “I can read your thoughts here and there and I am still confused!” she added in a tempered tone, “We’re going to get nowhere if no one knows the plan!” she hissed. She took a breather for a moment, trying to calm herself down, but being in the dark was starting to irritate her. She wanted to know what was going on, how bad the situation was, what she could do. What she was going to HAVE to do. Absolem was amazing with his mind, but he couldn’t read thoughts and Cheshire was freaking out.. did she really think everyone was aware of her idea? She got upon Cheshire’s back as silently advised, biting her bottom lip. They were leaving Grey behind to stay hidden? Absolem had that much faith that the boy could handle himself already? This was either incredibly stupid or brilliant depending on Jabberwocky and Grey. It all boiled down to how each responded to each other after Cheshire returned with her surprise. Or worse.. before Cheshire returned with her surprise. Absolem was putting everything on the line, his home, his freedom, his contractor.. just to keep everyone safe. I see.. if we don’t get away properly ..Absolem figures none of us will be safe. He’s so rash for such a brilliant mind. Maybe it’s just where his powers drained his ability to strategize..? Although, maybe this.. it’s his way of pretending to not care for Grey? He doesn’t seem like the kind to typically get close to others. She clung to Cheshire for once, she hated being off her feet. It was the only thing close to heights on her fear scale.

Duchess Sophie

The Duchess came to a stop as she heard the voice of Tibbs and rolled her eyes, she'd had enough, the Jabberwocky and its crew had all gone off somewhere but clearly something had been left behind just for her, but this time she felt she had a genuine chance, after all, there was only one of it and three of them, six if you counted Belca, Moonlight and her son. Of course, she hadn't seen it yet.

"Bloody hell," she swore, "Why won't you just go away and leave me alone. I think it's charming that the Jabberwocky put all this effort into persuing me but you can just go back and tell him that I'm not interes..."

Her words came to a halt as she turned around and saw the face of the creature before her. The thing was huge but that wasn't what had stopped her. It was as if it's eyes embodied everything that she feared, a fear that she hadn't even realised she'd had. The fear that made her stay at home writing all the time. She was afraid to be outside, all the vast open space and all the people out there that could be anywhere and you'd never find them. Just the thought terrified her, almost paralysing her. It was then that the first waves of dispair began to assult her heart. She no longer had a home to go back to, a place where she could be safe.

She could feel tears building up and quickly looked away, somehow the creature had known what even she hadn't but there was no way she was going to let herself cry infront of the disgusting thing. She turned her gaze to Belca, intending to apologise and explain that she couldn't fight this thing but then stopped, her mind racing.

So what if she didn't have a home anymore? It could always be rebuilt. Belca didn't have her memories but she wasn't breaking down and crying, no, the girl was strong and determined, not to mention stubborn and unbearably rude but the point was that she wasn't letting anything stop her. Looking around at the other members of the group she felt herself gain more and more control over her fear and it was being replaced by something else. Anger. She was out in the big bad world now and nothing was hurting her, the place was vast and no doubt there were people out there that she'd never find but that was the way of things.

"Belca, you are never to speak in the manner in which I'm about to," she said sweetly, glaring at Tibbs, "I'm about to tear this F***ing thing apart and it's not going to be pretty."

The Tibbs monster was big but she had her ability, she could become as large as it was even if it was just for a little while simply by believing it to be so.

Slowly she began to walk towards it and with each step she grew larger and larger untill she was of the same size. Gripping her croquet mallet she stood before the creature, ready to fight. She was determined to not slip up, her focus would be absolute and she'd take this thing down.

"Shall we begin?" she asked, smiling darkly.

Without warning she swung the mallet towards the thing's head withenough force to crack a skull or at least knock something out. Perhaps she'd get lucky and end this with her first strike but chances were it would take a little more than that.


Sinistra/Tweedle Dee & Destra/Tweedle Dum

Both twins gazed up in horror at the creature, both saw its face as a different kind of bird, constantly metamorphasizing into some new kind of bird. Turning to face each other they locked hands and ran to hide behind a tree. There was no way they could fight something like this, using their power took all their self control as it was

Perhaps in a few moments they'd be able to assist the Duchess by supplying a stream of projectiles but for now they were helpless, the Duchess was on her own though it looked like she had things under control. She looked furious.

"Moonlight, Belca...France?" called Destra, "it might be safer for you to come back here with us. Things are going to get ugly."

Cheshire

For some reason Rhia always had a way of surprising the cat. This was good because it kept her on her toes and relayed information she seemed to overlook. The girl was right. It was because of the Caterpillar that they all had a chance to regroup. If not for his Mushroom Sanctuary Cheshire and the others most likely would still be pathetically wondering amidst corruption. She had time to heal somewhat and she owed him her thanks. Though, due to random bursts of dread, excitement and fury, she decided it could wait. She was erratic, at least she knew that. Some things were just better left alone for a time.

She wasn't exactly thrilled knowing Absolem left the boy behind. Though he wasn't her child she couldn't keep the creeping twinge of uncertainty towards Absolem's decision. She supposed Caterpillar figured he would be safer in the background, but she just couldn't stomach not keeping a contractor near, especially with Jabberwockey present. She found herself holding to the uncertain brushes and pats given by Rhia. She knew the child was trying to comfort her, but all she could do was meet the girl's uncertainty with an awkwardness of her own. Relationships, friendships or otherwise, were still a struggle. So much had taken place within such a short amount of time and it left the cat bewildered. However, it was a Change she was willing to die for. She growled to Grey as the girl climbed upon her back and as Absolem followed suit. The boy's sudden creation was a surprise, but she wouldn't be bought by false hope. "I'd get off the roof, boy, unless you want to face the Beast. Keep hidden. When you see an opening take your..contraption and get us." She turned to the Caterpillar barely meeting the man's gaze as the tremors rocked his house further until a mass of roots expelled it from the ground. "Keep it hidden if you can. We'll make our own army." She told him, trying to fight her guilt about taking things into her own hands. The threat of Corruption had been too real, thus whatever she claimed would become reborn. Absolem's Mushroom was just one more sacrifice that would be taken to stop Jabberwockey, but it would be awesome.

She thanked her transformation gifts as the girl clung tighter to her fur. True, there wasn't exactly anything else to hold on to, and she'd be damned if she were to be saddled like domestic livestock, but Rhia's grip was tight. She couldn't imagine carting the child around as anything other than her current form. Already the strain of holding her weight was tiring her. Her body was screaming as she propelled the two of them forward. She wouldn't dare transform again. She was lucky she healed somewhat before turning. She could have very well reopened her wounds or made them worse. She stopped and paused for a breathe, explosions in the distance catching her attention. She looked to Absolem and saw his manic grin. Bandersnatch She smirked back before taking off once more, fueled by the revelation. Duchess had her hands busy, but help was coming.

She leapt through the shortcut, landing closer to the battle field. The Beast seemed to be preoccupied which was great for her. She took the time to drag her claws into the surrounding fauna, feeling her Change stir and rush out. She couldn't transform, but that didn't mean she could have others do it for her. She grinned, feeling the tickle of life over each creature and plant she claimed. She never turned so many at once, so she wasn't sure how it would work out, but just knowing the battalion of changelings both frightened and enthused her. Never had she had her Change spread so thin, but feeling so much life was like a new high.
She cackled leaping here and there watching mushrooms and plants expel them selves from the earth. Roots becoming tendrils, thrusting themselves forward and throwing whatever object they could at the enemy. Their soft flesh hardened as they twisted more within themselves, sometimes wrapping others within their writhing forms, becoming larger, meaner. The small fires provided by the unseen assailants proved useful as some stampeded through the blaze, covering themselves in flames, fueled by the venom each creature held. They would continue the attack on the Generals whilst Jabberwockey was preoccupied. Minions were easily taken out, either by fire, being crushed or absorbed by the still warping beings. Hopefully, this would provide enough distraction to help Duchess and her crew escape. If not well, there was always the lumbering, invisible mushroom house, on it's way.
