Description


A child believes
The best in you
And that belief always make the
darkest lies seem almost true
A sleight of hand...
this "almost truth"
can beguile the purest youth
To Wonderland

Now every piece is in place
And all that's left to erase before I
take over all the power
Is every trace of dear Alice
then the queen

She's been a thorn in my side
and she can run but can't hide.
We're fast approaching
the witching hour
And settling score is my routine

Oh well -- all's well,
end's well -- farewell, Alice
Too late -- checkmate is your fate...

It's over
I come alive when you're afraid
I'll write the ending of your
tragic fairy tale

I will survive and you will fade
A withered flower small and frail...
While I prevail

This time it's gonna be me
The last thing you'll ever see
And armageddon of my devising

There's no way you can escape from what I do
So leave your half-hearted souls
For me to bully and rule
The sly magician of compromising
To conjure all that is false
until it's true

Poor Jack -- blackjack,
sad-sack fallen hero
Bad news- you lose,
light the fuse...

It's over
You die -- I thrive -- and so it goes
I am the ending of your tragic fairy tale
I will -- survive - and heaven knows
There is no way that I can fail
I will prevail

I Will Prevail - Wonderland: The Musical

So begins...

A woman dressed rather flamboyantly would exit the deeper woods, she wore a tri-corner hat on her head and had short boyish blonde hair and crimson lipstick, there also seemed to be an apparent insanity in her eyes. As she caught sight of the cat, she would whisper, "El Gato, rather unexpected." smirking she would watch as it hunted for source of the disturbance, it was rather amusing, rather amusing indeed.

With that she would smirk and start slowly humming a tune, before starting to circle the cat and bursting into a song, her voice mocking and taunting to 'El Gato' she clearly saw herself superior to this being:

"Well Hello, there, it’s me
With how it’s gonna be,
Settle down and listen up good.
The old Hatter is gone
But the Hat must go on
Worn by me, is that understood?
So shut up and tow the line,
While I redefine
How this all will be mine.
I have a dream,
It’s got a full head of steam!"


As she sang she would keep circling, smirking, her feet almost dancing as she continued on.

"What is true what is not
Can both change in a shot
And people me,
I couldn’t care less.
‘Cause in two seconds flat
Livin’ under my hat
Is the strategy for success.
I will look the other way
When you want to play
Something more than croquet.
You catch my drift?
My little personal gift!"


Just keeping on with this game, watching the reactions carefully, and following the music in her head to utmost heights, she obviously saw no reason to be prepared in fact this singing showed she had no concern about 'El Gato' despite what she had heard, this did not bother her.

"I’m the Mad Hatter
Come and follow me, this is it.
The Mad Hatter,
All you gotta do is submit.
And if you don’t my friend,
Well then in the end,
There’ll be nothing left to defend.
Know what I mean?
When you are facing the Queen."


It was hard to tell, was she threatening them or was this all just a joke since Wonderland denizens were prone to bouts of insanity, but bursting into song, that a new one by most standards.

"Uppercase, double-spaced
Everyone gets a taste,
And a brand new leather hat band.
But to participate,
Let me reiterate
You must first put me in command.
I’m the wonder, understand,
Under Wonderland,
Put the reigns in my hand.
I’ll do the rest,
As soon as you’ve acquiesced!"


Okay, clearly this person was not the original Mad Hatter, she seemed to have desires to overthrow the current leadership of Wonderland and take on over, that was either work of a genius or a mad man.

"I’m the Mad Hatter
Offering a little bit more.
The Mad Hatter,
Giving you what you’re looking for.
I am your best worst case
For the choice you face,
And the fastest rat in the race!
It’s me or the queen
And her serene guillotine.

There is nothing I won’t do,
There is nothing too taboo,
I will lie, I will cheat,
I will track you down
And then hit delete tout suite!
So sweetie let me repeat…

I’m the Mad Hatter,
Lend allegiance while you still can,
The Mad Hatter
More than just a Hat with a plan.
I am where you belong,
The right kind of wrong,
And I’ll still be going real strong!
The bottom line
Is everything will be fine.
As all the planets align,
It’s gonna be so divine.
When all of this will be MINE!!"


With a sweeping bow she stopped circling and said, "El Gato, I assume you are well?"

Laughing she sniggered, "It's Spanish for Cat silly, so therefore you are El Gato. I am neither an imposter nor am I sane. It's all a matter of perspective, would I think I could destroy the Queen if I was sane?" pausing she would shrug, "Or would you rather kiss the Queen jolly red arse."

"Oh la di dah, I am far more intelligent than the Queen and could bring a new Golden Age to Wonderland, that Queen destroyed the economy and destroyed our nation all to chase a girl now dead. Wonderland is dying and she holds her guillotine over people as a threat, she is simply a pretender who should be crushed. The cunt must die!"

She would keep smirking, "I may well know the ending, could well say I am the ending this tragic fairytale. Might well be wrong, but could well be right." backing off she would continue, "Maybe tis is a quirk or childhood addage, who knows. Maybe there is more I know, but would I be the Queen Adviser without being good at keeping my cards close 'El Gato'?"

Still smirking she remove her hat and say, "Nothing under my hat, obviously I got nothing to hide, as for poison why ruin Tea of all things with murder, there time for drinking and time for murder, clashing the two is just damn disrespectful. For one I don't hurt my guests I instead treat them to great tea-party and well after who knows, mayhaps be there last meal or maybe they leave safely." placing her Tri-corner hat back on she would bow, "But really I have nothing here to hide."

"Rylina, and you heard the old saying, curiosity killed the cat. Just saying I have no reason to hide my name, but ask too many questions it may well bite you in a not so nice place whatever gender you identify by, it will be painful El Gato."

Smirking she would curtsy and say, "And you should refrain from trying to out-think me, as you will obviously get tired in the end. I am like the Jester to the Queen allow to question everything and criticize her, you are merely someone who can threaten, but not without consequences."

"Oh you have no idea, how quaint." there she was being vague once more, she was playing a game, but as to what she would not say, she simply felt like seeing if the cat could guess, but since there were no obvious clues she could continue this indefinitely watching the cat try fathom this.

"Keep guessing, but may well be playing pointless game, maybe the emperor new clothes aren't anything at all and you're simply wasting your time." snickering once more she would part soon to leave this cat to wonder what on earth just took place.

Stepping in the strange nothingness a woman who stood confidently while dressed in green garish clothes seemingly flamboyant and yet stylish. On her head was a tri-corner hat while her short blonde hair could be seen peeking out. Gazing around at everything, she exhaled and approached the figures, "Well isn't this quaint, enough here for a Tea Party. Being, I have no idea how I got here, nor do I feel necessary to ask, I shall instead simply introduce myself."

The strange woman paused and took a long deep breath, she then spoke in a cordial tone, "I am the Hatter, you may know me by the deeds I perform or the reputation that precedes myself. It neither important, but when one does know their company it be far more adventurous to approach with a certain caution. Being none of you appear in charge, I can only assume that you like me are confused by this strange almost unfathomable place we seem to be in, correct?" already her mind was working, trying to concoct whatever way to level or raise the plain field in her favour. Never one, to fight fair, she instead was working out how this situation could benefit her.

Illroraniel blinked elven eyes in a rare display of shock and surprise. At one moment she had been directed the warhost aboard her peoples craftworld, preparing to lead a sortie in search of supplies, and the next she found herself aboard this vessel, surrounded by a host of oddities and lesser beings.

"What by Isha's grace is this?!!" She asked, her tone threatening indignation and anger, even as her grip on the singing spear she held pointed at those around her tightened. "What have you foolish humans done this time?"
