Introduction

There is a shop that seems to appear and disappear anywhere but people don't seem to notice it. Inside this shop contains ball-jointed dolls in high quality and in exquisite taste. The shop keeper seems friendly, if it wasn't for his mad chuckle or the way he smiles. They say you don't need to pay for the dolls, the shop keeper is not selling them but there is one thing you must absolutely do: sign a contract. Once you sign it, you are given a key for the doll and your whole life as you know it is never the same after.

*chuckles*Welcome to Mystery...


Let me introduce to you, my precious dolls...

Alice: SOLD!

The White Rabbit: SOLD!
Image

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum: SOLD!
Image

The Cheshire Cat: SOLD!
Image

The Mad Hatter: SOLD!
Image

The Dormouse: SOLD!
Image

The Queen of Hearts: SOLD!

Now I am in need of spirits who will be possessing these dolls:

Alice: RESERVED!

The White Rabbit: OCCUPIED!

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum: OCCUPIED!

The Cheshire Cat: RESERVED!

The Mad Hatter: RESERVED!

The Dormouse: RESERVED!

Rahls blinked and looked around at the company he was in. It wasn't a very promising crowd if the man wanted a deathmatch.
"So... Let me get this straight. You're saying that these dolls have powers or some shit and we have to..." He paused, thinking about it and looking at the small doll in his hand. "I don't know, turn these thing into monsters and kill each other with them?" He stopped again. The shopkeeper still looked completely serious, though he did have an odd, lazy smile on his face. "Are you screwing with me? Y'know I thinks there's a name for what you have. Schizo... Phrelium or something? Whatever."
He turned to walk out of the room. "I'm leaving, whether you let me or not." He flipped off the shopkeeper as he began to walk away.

((Also, as you can tell, Rahls isn't the most... Learned or read of this group of people. He's also basically a violent jerk or whatever. It's kinda funny with his looks and all.))

Megan glanced back at the others in the room. "You're all sick." She pointed directly at The Shop Keeper. "Especially you."

"Oi, Rahls!" Megan went after him. "I think me an' you are the only two sane people here, I'm not being stuck with them lot. A girl looks like she wants to kill me, too. Perfect for a death match, eh?" She chuckled to herself, smiling slightly although her gut couldn't let go of the terrible twisting feeling. A fight to the death wasn't Megan. It wasn't normal for teenagers. "And anyway," She sighed. "You don't know the story of Alice in Wonderland. You'll probably need a little knowledge to get out of the maze and into Mystery. Seems like the only hope of getting out of here."

The Shop Keeper looked at Aveline when she asked the question, he smiled lightly and was about to say what would be their prize when he was interrupted by the two bickering logic people. He sighed in annoyance, "I hate people like them, thinking they're all so great and a know at all. They are the exact people that I will never become. People like them, would probably end up wearing suits and emotionless masks. What a boring life." he thought.

He took a quick sip of his tea to calm his mind and then smirked at Rahls who was leaving, "My dear boy, you can no longer escape this dimension." he took another sip, "No matter how much you deny it, you're not with your little sister anymore." he chuckled evilly, "Even if you escaped from this dimension, how sure are you that you'll end up in your own timeline, hm? How can I say this...a second in this dimension is like a decade in your dimension so your sister must have grown up already with a missing older brother." he grinned, "Though this piece of information will let you truly play this game of mine...the winner of this game gets back to their own dimension in the exact day and time when you entered and exit my shop plus a single wish."

Rahls stopped dead. What the shopkeeper had just told him filtered through his brain like a trickle of acid, scorching his mind with the feeling of terrible loss, loneliness and despair. And anger. So much anger, rage… an overwhelming desire to see what color the blood was that ran in the man’s veins. His heart burned with fury, but when he turned his head back to the shopkeeper, his eyes were as cold and heartless as that of someone who has died.

“And how…” he asked quietly, “Do we use these dolls…?”

He knew before he said it that he had walked into a trap. Though, whether or not what the shopkeeper said was true or not, Rahls would do anything to see to it that he got to his sister alive. Selfish a wish though it might be, he wasn’t beyond sacrificing his own sanity, his own life to see it come true. Of course, the things he would be sacrificing here would apparently be other people. He was far from confident, though. Grief and pain alike roared through his body. It was amazing how such few simple words from the shopkeeper could change him that much, but it was of no concern to him. If he saw nothing but enemies standing in the room with him, so be it. To see his sister again, he would willingly submit himself to being this man's pawn.

The Shop Keeper smirked when he caught the boy's attention, “And how…” Rahls asked quietly, “Do we use these dolls…?”

The game master chuckled, "Did I not explain it earlier? While you're still here in the maze, your dolls are lifeless though Blood here is an exception." he said as he pointed out his own doll, "But once you enter Mystery, your doll will come to life but they are not monsters as you say they are. When they fight, they fight as dolls; using their own special ability to defend themselves and you as their source of power. Going to that matter, I suggest that you do not fight with the others quickly after one battle. You see, these dolls get their energy from you humans; your blood is their source of energy and whatever hit or damage that dolls get, you will be effected as well."

He looked at Azura with his crimson eye, "Unfortunately, Azura will not have any special treatment with the source of energy. You chose two dolls and these two dolls will get their energy for their abilities for you. You may be the first to be eliminated or you may be the most vulnerable one. If one doll dies, then half of your energy now will be depleted until the end of the game."

"Are we all clear?"

"What is the 'ultimate' character?" Aveline asked, eyes wide once the loud people had stopped yelling. Honestly, she hoped that they got attacked by a something or other. She wasn't going to kill them unless it was more desperate than it was now. The dolls being connected to them was interesting though. She surely had enough energy for her doll to feed off of when he needed it.

"What is the 'ultimate' character?" Aveline asked.

The Shop Keeper looked towards her direction and grinned, "I am glad you asked that question, Ms. Aveline." he then sat back and relaxed on his throne and rested his head on one of his hands, "The Ultimate Character is the winner's doll. Where do you think the dolls will go once you won and go back to your own dimension? Of course they cannot go with you and so they stay here in Mystery but since you, their source of energy, is gone their only main source of power is the souls of the defeated players. An additional power is gained by the doll every time the doll takes away the life of the human by making the doll consume more energy from its master. When this is done, the power of the fallen doll will be transferred to winner." the Shop Keeper smirked, "Dolls have their own power but in order to be activated, they need human energy. That is why you children are so important to this game of mine. To let my dolls have their own life, their body!" he chuckled loudly like a mad man then breathed deeply to stop himself, "Oh one more thing, when you go back to your dimension, you will have no memory of this place. What you would remember is that you entered my precious doll shop but did not find anything that sparked your interest and left."

"Correct me if I'm wrong here, Sir." Megan sighed, rubbing her eyes. "You're telling me to escape from Mystery, we have to... to kill each other?" She looked at everyone else in the room. They all seemed to be calm, so she tried to also stay calm. "And if we win, we'll go back to our dimension with no memory of murdering all these innocent kids - just like us - and also while in Mystery gain a lean, mean fighting machine in disguise as a doll. Is this Pokemon Alice in Wonderland?" Not even bringing sarcasim into it, Megan glanced at all the people around the room and then concentrated her gaze on The Shop Keeper.

Rahls shrugged. "Doesn't matter to me much. I'm getting out."

In contrast with his words, his voice and face still exuded the same cold anger that he was feeling. The man wanted people to die? Fine. They probably would, one way or another. He spun on his heel and began to walk away.

"If that's all, I'll be going now." He said without turning around.

Aveline pretended that she understood what the Shopkeeper had just said. She understood that she needed to win to return home and that the Cheshire Cat doll needed her as a source of energy. Then there was something about fighting. Oh well, she would win this wouldn't she? She simply nodded in response to the explanation.

The teal haired girl glanced at the others. The girl who seemed to love yelling at people had calmed down a bit, but the male she had arrived with had taken her place. He seemed even more unwilling to play than the brunette did. "I don't think you can leave,' she informed him, swing her feet back and forth.

"Look, lady. He can leave whenever he wants too. You can't decide when people leave. But I do have a question... Why are you so calm?" She glanced at The Shop Keeper, then back at the girl with the strange hair. It was a nice colour to be honest but... Meh. Not Megan's style. She'd much rather be at home with her dad. "There's a mad man which wants us to kill each other with dolls!"

Megan held her doll rather violently, clenched in the palm of her hand. Maybe The Queen of Hearts had a power to be something to do with chopping off peoples heads, right? No. No she wasn't going to do this. She'd find her own way out.

Aveline shrugged. "Ok, he can leave whenever he wants to but I don't think he should. He might fall off the face of the universe into a giant alligator's mouth." She giggled, thinking of how Alice in Wonderland morphed with Peter Pan it sounded like. Ooh, she could go for watching a Disney movie right now! But unfortunately there were more pressing matters such as killing people and surviving the next few days, give or take.

The teal haired maniac was pulled back into this semi-reality when Megan asked her a question. "Huh? Oh, well you see this doesn't surprise me. Have you heard of the Hunger Games? Or Battle Royale? It's a form of entertainment and now we get to be players! I mean, sometimes people do call me crazy, but I've never officially been in an asylum yet. I imagine things like this happen all the time," she replied, though she herself wasn't entirely sure what she was trying to say. "I think the dolls are sweet too, but I can't seem to find Xavier. See, I fell into Mystery earlier I think and I haven't seen him since. I named him after my brother, but my brother calls me crazy too. You know, once upon a time he locked me in a trunk for a few minutes and- When are we beginning?" she asked, her attention swiftly turning from storytelling to the Shopkeeper.

If Rahls had been able to begin right then, he would have. He didn't care whether he could leave or not. Although, he was only leaving because he didn't know how to kill them at the moment and he wanted to get a head start on them.

He took out his doll and looked at it, frowning as he paused. He had two choices here. Stay and see what happened, and possibly learn how to use it correctly, or leave and get a head start on everyone else, but possibly risk not hearing something important.

He sighed. Better safe than dead, he thought as he paused for only a moment more to hear what the shopkeeper said next. If it wasn't beneficial to him, he would leave, simple as that.
