Madness and Muchness ch 1 Alice awoke from her sleep in a glorious bed. At first she thought she was at home, but it didn't quite feel like it. She rubbed her eyes and saw that she was indeed, in Marmoreal Castle, the home of the White Queen.Madness and Muchness ch 15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Am I I "
The White Queen rubbed the side of her face with her soft creamy hand.
"Alice, my champion, you're alright now darling. Just relax and go to sleep."
Alice sat up, "But how did I get here?"
Mirana, the White Queen, had a puzzled look on her face. "Why I don't know Alice. I was out with my court, checking up on the good people of Underland and we saw you lying face down in the garden. Your clothes were soaking wet, and you looked so sickly. Why we carried you to my castle, and put you to bed."
Alice tried to think about what she did last, but she couldn't remember. She had no recollection about her dreaded fall, or her doomed
Madness and Muchness ch 7 It was almost like any other day for Alice in Marmoreal castle. She wandered aimlessly through the halls, admiring the paintings, smelling the flowers, all of the usual things. Except this wasn't like any other day. The servants were hurrying, tidying up the castle, talking extra sweetly to the plants, and making sure everything was right for the wedding that would occur the following day, between the Queen's Champion, and her Hatter.Madness and Muchness ch 75 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Tarrant " Alice sneaked into his sewing room, where he was working.
He turned around and covered her eyes, "Alice, you know you aren't supposed to be seeing what I'm working on, you naughty girl you."
"Don't I get at least a little peek at my wedding dress."
"Now Alice you know it's bad luck for you to see the dress before the wedding."
Alice pondered that thought for the moment, "Well, I'll have to get dressed 'before' the wedding, and I'll see my dress then. So ei
Madness and Muchness ch 3 Alice walked aimlessly around the castle, which had been her home for the prior three weeks. The Queen decided to let her stay in the castle, because after all, Alice was her champion. Usually she helped with tending the garden, or she spent her time reading books in the library, or embroidering pillowcases with silver floss. But the best times was when Tarrant wasn't too busy sewing clothes and making adjustments for the Queen.Madness and Muchness ch 35 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Alice peeked her head in the door. "Oh hello Tarrant, I was just passing by and I thought I'd come and see you." This was a partial lie, she stopped by every day to see him. Tarrant had taken up residence in the castle for the past several weeks also.
Tarrant clipped a string from the hem of the dress that he was sewing. "It feels nice now that things are back to normal. I'm working in my trade again, for the White Queen, and you're as you shoul
Madness and Muchness Ch 5 Tarrant was going through a mad rage. He was tearing up his house, throwing the sheets off the bed, tearing pages out of books, and sifting through the ashes in his fireplace looking for something. The problem was he didn't know what he was looking for though.Madness and Muchness Ch 55 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"SLIM SCUM SLACKING URBAL SCUM!!!" He threw his wardrobe into the wall. He screamed and started rolling around on the floor.
"Where is it! Where is what? Where is it! Where is what? Where is it! I'VE GONE MAD!!!"
Meanwhile, Alice was sitting in the dining room eating dinner with the White Queen. She felt a strange sensation in her chest.
"What's wrong Alice?" asked Mirana.
Alice suddenly felt cold all over, "I don't know, I just have this bad feeling all of a sudden."
Mirana leaned forward and whispered to her, "Is it the soup?"
Alice looked around the room, "No, the soup is fine."
Madness and Muchness ch2 "Tarrant, it's high time you come out and have a Tea Party!" The dormouse and the March Hare were knocking on the Hatter's door. For the past several weeks the Hatter wouldn't leave his house, as he claimed that he was 'working.'Madness and Muchness ch25 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The dormouse grabbed her sword. "Let me at him! He can't be sewing every minute of every day."
Thackery grabbed her. "Wait!!! Let's try again. Hatter, please come out for tea!!!"
Tarrant sat quietly in his armchair in the drawing room. He stared blankly at his unlit fireplace.
"No, I cannot, I'm working!"
"Come on we've got better things to do!" Mallymkun said, angrily.
The both of them sat at the table in front of the Hatter's house and began to have their daily tea. As they have done, without him, for the past two months. Tarrant sat shut his eyes and tried
Madness and Muchness ch 6 Alice and Tarrant cuddled on his half-torn-apart sofa staring at the fireplace. Everything wasn't in it's proper place, except for their own hearts. Alice had her head rested on his shoulder, and Tarrant was brushing her hair.Madness and Muchness ch 65 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"You know, I'm glad I found that ring." He smiled softly, "It was my mother's."
Alice admired the loveliness of her engagement ring. It had intricate engravings of gardens and flowers on the silver band. The gem was a light shade of periwinkle, and if you softened your eyes just so, you could see a small heart in the center.
"It's lovely Tarrant." She snuggled into his chest. "What do you suppose you're going to do when I head back to Marmoreal?"
"Wait, I have an idea!" He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small pair of scissors. "Hold still Alice." He snipped off a small lock of her blonde hair and put it

She was done. Closing the log laying heavily on her desk, with a satisfied sigh, Alice had finished what she had set out to do. It had taken nearly 6 years but she had surpassed her late fathers dreams and extended his trade route all the way to china, and done so successfully. Pushing back the chair she walked over to the the ancient globe spinning it ideally and watching as it spun wildly. Instead of feeling complete though she felt empty.
Looking in her mirror she didn't look much different then she had the day she had laid out her plan to her fathers old friend and colleague. Her hair rarely worn up anymore, fell around her face an shoulders. It was a waste of time to try to tame it, her hair had a mind of it's own and her fine strands always ended up escaping even the most elaborate style. She gathered it up into a messy bun in the back to better study her reflected features.
There were no wrinkles marking time across her visage yet, but they
Madness and Muchness Ch 4 Alice tenderly hugged Tarrant, as they stood at the entrance of Marmoreal Castle.Madness and Muchness Ch 45 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"I'll miss you Tarrant, do come and visit."
Tarrant whispered in her ear, "Only if you promise to come visit me."
Alice let go of him and watched as he rode into a royal carriage off to his home in Tugley Woods. She suddenly felt incredibly sad. There were many things to do in Marmoreal castle, much more things to do than in the entire country of England. But it wouldn't be the same without Tarrant. She knew that she would miss his laughter, no matter how mad he was. She missed the rhythmic sound of his sewing machine, she often fell asleep in his sewing room just listening to him delicately sewing a lace trim on a dress. Whenever she woke up, she was back in her room. Tarrant always sent the guards to carry Alice back to her room, because the court would suspect an affair was going on. It didn'

"Ahh Alice, so glad you could join us again.." the sarcasm dripped thickly from the elegant butterfly, in an ironic way that was his way though.
"Not now." she pointed a firm hand at the butterfly which wasn't as easy as it sounded. His flight didn't hold him in one place so her finger moved to follow. Then she turned her attention to the rabbit. He was more straight forward, she would get the info she sought clearly and faster from him.
"What's happened to the Hatter?" Nivens fidgeted with his paws, he wa
