My natural curiosity is tampered with caution
Thus I live long
But now, ignoring my instinct to flee or fear
I speak the truth with out reguard to consequence
Your courage deserves no less
You've suffered great pain, and you've caused some
You've endured great feelings of grief and guilt
But you will be tested on a more wretching anguish, Alice
There is worse to come
You and this Red Queen
Cannot both survive
You're two parts of the same-
Watch Your Step"Be careful, Alice. Watch your step, Alice," repeated the Cheshire Cat as she walked through the valley of the spikes. He stood in silence as he watched her weave in and out of the sharp, elongated death-trap.Watch Your Step4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He held his breath, watching as a spike plummeted from the top of the ceiling, thinking her end was near. He closed his eyes hearing the spike sink into the marred ground, his heart stopping. 'Was she gone?' he thought. 'She never bothered to listen to me that silly girl... but now who will save us? Who will save her?' He opened his eyes.
To his shock, the last of the butterflies took off around her as she continued through the maze. She survived. "Impossible..." he said to himself, "but then again, this girl has yet ceased to amaze me." He stood above the shafts, his claws sinking into every board, his golden eyes watching his broken mistress continue forth on her journey.
Goodbye AliceInitially, I thought there would be a lot more great deal of pain when it came to dying. But in the end, it only was an intense heavy and numb feeling, almost like you were hit in the head with a large block of ice. The only notion really that I was really even dying was the metallic taste in my mouth, and the haze in my eyes. I looked at her, her young girlish features tainted by the splatter of my blood. Her eyes remained opened, as if she were to be strangled, and her mouth twitched wildly, most likely from shock. It was sad that that was going to be the expression she wore the last time I saw her. I really don't think I had ever seen anyone as scared as she was at that moment, and if I had had time to reflect on it, I would have been frightened too. With a great jolt, I felt the muscles in my body let go, giving up on my hope. As I fell on top of her, I managed to whisper,Goodbye Alice3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Entitled Cheshire Cat
By Seth Vandenburg
Wonderlands mysterious grinning feline
His riddles, ever so divine
But on first sight to Alice
Who before, her heart never had malice
The cat was as strange as all the signs
As of now, the Cheshire Cat has changed
His fur, his riddles, all of him rearranged
Body a skeleton-form, a ring in his ear
And his grin was much worse to fear
His teeth, completely fanged
His sudden transformation, so very uncouth
All of him changed, body to tooth
No normal man would dare to delve
To fight the Cheshire Cats corrupted shell
Though Alice was calm, to tell the truth
They both journeyed together through Wonderland
Through treacherous hordes of enemies, band by band
The Red Queens domain, they soon appear
The end game forever near
Though sadly, the Cheshire Cat met his end by the Red Queens hand

Claws that rip,
Fangs that gleam,
Gives the mad wicked dreams.
Wanders forward; halts; stares,
Eyes of yellow, slitted pupils. Glare.
And out of shadows, rasped sound speaks,
Like a whisper given weak wind,
Quizzical voice whom obscures reap
With ill fated fate on breath, such sins.
'What wonders down before mine eyes?
Brings cause to wonder,
draws out surprise?
Why, travelers that wander here,
Come from far, come from near.
Pausing only in brief repose,
Tho' conciseness still may expose,
Secrets, lies, half truths, Un-wholes,
And in, the seekers dig like moles.
Stay for more than a moment long?
And thy mind to you will no longer belong.
Take into context thoughts that fray,
Like my claws, from which blood runs astray.
Now run, run little birds, have no fear,
We're all quite mad, Quite awfully mad, here.'
As The World Falls Down--1It was mid-afternoon in Salazen Grum; and both the sun and the Red Queen had reached their peak and were now beginning to descend. The sun was traveling west; the Queen was allowing herself to sink into a state of nervousness.As The World Falls Down--15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She was testy and irritable, as she usually was, but today's events seemed to goad within her a certain anxiousness to accompany her bad temper.
Stayne, standing dutifully next to her, watched her fingers clench and unclench on the arms of the throne. She bit her lip and made a visible attempt to relax, leaning back into the large throne as far as her massive head would allow, only to lean forward again, picking up her small scepter to flick some imaginary dust off of it.
The Knave's brows creased, not so much out of concern than for curiosity. Normally when the Red Queen had something on her mind, some trifle or another, she wasted no time in whining to him about how it wasn't fair or that it was giving her a headache.

I don't think any of us will turn out okay if I go through with this. I know we won't. None of us will. Not every ending is a happy one.

“Hey, does this flower look like a flower?”
“Hmm?” I look over in her direction, wishing that I had been watching her paint instead of reciting my lines to myself.
“I think I might need to add a lighter blue to the petals.”
“What’re you talking about?” I walk across the theater’s stage and look at the background she’s brought to life.
“It looks . . . flat.” She stands to her feet and looks up at me, green and blue paint smeared across one of her freckled cheeks.
I feel myself grin like an idiot and just stare at the painting in awe. The green vines swirl together and all of the petals are flourished. “No, no . . . it just looks so . . . Nikki.”
“So Nikki?” She giggles a little.

Cheshire chuckled at her, "Care for some tea, love?"
"After that encounter? I'd rather eat paste."
He strode over to her, butting his head into her shoulder, indicating she could lean on him.
He walked her over to a slight ledge, helping her sit. Alice flinched as she moved, one of the eyepots having struck her quite viciously across her back when she was turning to attack her other foes.
"Alice, what's wrong?"
She clenched her teeth as the fabric of her dress brushed across the fresh wound.
He moved around to stand behind her, and paused for a moment, concentrating hard, feeling a rush of energy course through his veins, letting it drift through his every cell, pulling him, changing him. Cheshire shuddered, disliking the adjustment of limbs. He knelt next to Alice,

I woke up in the same position I had fallen asleep in. I was the first to wake up, I noticed, and I nearly burst out laughing as I stared at Sid's position: on his side, one leg in the air, left thumb in his mouth and head hanging off of the rock he had chosen to sleep on during the night. It was truly a funny sight!
I carefully lifted myself Buck, who thankfully didn't wake up, and headed a little way off till I got to a pool of water that, when I tested it, felt great very warm. So, smiling blissfully, I took off my foot cuffs and dipped my feet in the water.
I sighed happily as the warmness filled my body. It was perfect! But the heavenly feeling would've continued if a certain voice hadn't interrupted it, "Havin' fun?" I jumped, huffed, and turned angrily to Buck, "You just had to ruin the moment, didn't ya?" He laughed and joined me, placing his feet in the water, next to mine. He sighed, "Aye, feels nice " I gru

then her gym pumps burst to show sharp clawed toes
her dainty little feet have become larger than those

her t shirt bursts to reveal abs of steel
and four more nipples as her breasts expand and pop open her bra
now she knows the scar from the beast that attacked her was not an ordinary wolf
as she falls onto all fours a tail bursts from where her coccyx was and begins to waggle she begins to snarl

The trip was hard on the young boy. The constant rocking of this giant canoe had made him dizzy. By the next morning they had arrived at the pale man's village. "Come little one." The giant man in black armor said. The boy followed seeing as he really had no other choice.
Even though the boy was scared, he was greatly relieved to be on solid ground once again. The man occasionally gave what must have been orders to his fellow villagers as he led him to wherever they were going. The boy marveled at how strong the pale man's language sounded compared to his own. How would he ever learn to understand the words was a question that plagued his mind until they came to a sudden halt.

Madame Leota was born in the Louisiana swamps to a kidnapped gypsy and a voodoo priest. Uneducated in everything but the occult, she grew up learning that other people were nothing but cattle and that everyone has weak spots and can be easily influenced. She was a very bitter person and was known to fly into rages at the least provocation. However, even though she had a bad temper, Leota was most dangerous when she was calm and could think things through. She was very sly and the other village people shunned her.
Leota finally moved to New Orleans and began reading palms and holding séances. Although some were exaggerated by special effects, by and large, her powers were genuine.
