wonderland by ephemeral-d wonderland by ephemeral-d
Why is a raven like a writing desk?????????? :O

Pen on paper, as usually :)

Right worm is a "Halicephalobus mephisto":devilish: Left side is a little bit inspired by Franšois Rabelais', "Gargantua and Pantagruel". Started this one just to make an "Alice in Wonderland". But it ended different, then I thought, like it always is :hmm:
In the back scene, is a little bit 'Pussy Riot', cause it was 'up to date' :D

`Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty in his place again.'


---------------------------------------------------------------

Trust me. I know a thing or two about liking people, and in time, after much chocolate and cream cake, 'like' turns into 'what was his name again?'.


"No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow."


"I'm investigating things that begin with the letter M."

"[to Alice] You used to be much more..."muchier." You've lost your muchness."

"Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk?"

"[after "fixing" the White Rabbit's watch] Two days slow, that's what it is."


The Hatter
----------------------------------------------------------------

"I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!"

"My name is Alice, but --"

"I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see."

"It would be so nice if something made sense for a change."

"must a name mean something?"


"Good advice. If I listened earlier, I wouldn't be here. But that's just the trouble with me. I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it. "

"Curiosity often leads to trouble."

"You can learn a lot of things from the flowers... Huh! Seems to me they could learn a few things about manners!"

"Of all the silly nonsense, this is the stupidest tea party I've ever been to in all my life."

Alice
---------------------------------------------------------------

"We're all mad here."

"Somehow you strayed and lost your way, and now there'll be no time to play, no time for joy, no time for friends - not even time to make amends. You are too na´ve if you do believe life is innocent laughter and fun."

"After all this time, coming all this way, / you're getting far too close to stop. / Get a grip on this rock, and get a grip on yourself / if you're gonna make it to the top. / Be brave, little Alice. Belive in yourself / 'cuz here's the most important part. / While all the others remember to use their heads, / you just remember to use your heart.
You, know I see that princess in a lonely room / where the wizard's got her locked away. / Now, he's one bad dude, he's in a nasty mood, / and he wants to be the king someday. / Now, I can see the Mad Hatter. / He's trying to help. / He wants to set the princess free. / He's got lots of hats, but he's lots of bats. / You know, it just ain't meant to be. / Now, if you're gonna find that princess, / then split this group in two. / A few of you get Alice to the palace, / and the rest, here's what to do: / You don't need to go up, you don't need to go down, / but remember what this cat said. / You just go where your high-top sneakers sneak, / and don't forget to use your head."

"And you've picked up a bit of an attitude, still curious and willing to learn, I hope."

"How fine you look when dressed in rage. Your enemies are fortunate your condition is not permanent. You're lucky, too. Red eyes suit so few."

"I can't know everything, pretend you're an orphan."

"That was rude, you *are*! Rabbit knows a thing or two and I myself, don't need a weathervane to tell which way the wind blows."

"To the royal guards of this realm, we are all victims in-waiting."

"Only the insane equate pain with success."

"Every adventure requires a first step. Trite, but true, even here."

"The uninformed must improve their deficit, or die."

"Only a few find the way, some don't recognize it when they do - some... don't ever want to."

"I've never trusted toadstools, but I suppose some must have their good points."

"The proper order of things is often a mystery to me. You, too?"

"I'm afraid I have to expel a rather ferocious hairball. You're on your own, girl."

Cheshire Cat

--------------------------------------------------------------

Cheshire Cat: What do you call yourself?
Alice Kingsley: Alice.
Cheshire Cat: *The* Alice?
Alice Kingsley: There's been some debate about that.
Cheshire Cat: I never get involved in politics.



The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
[Alice checks Hatter's temperature]
Alice Kingsley: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.


Alice: And if not, there must be more than one way to skin a cat, If you'll... pardon the expression.
Cheshire Cat: Most unpleasant metaphor. Please avoid it in the future.

Alice: I don't want to meet mad people...
Cheshire Cat: But you can't help it. Everyone here is mad. I'm mad. You're mad. It's only by chance n' careful planning if you're not!
Alice: How do you know I'M mad?
Cheshire Cat: [disappearing] Because you're here, and everyone here is mad!

Cheshire Cat: I went to a hunting party once, I didn't like it. Terrible people. They all started hunting me!
Alice: Life must be hard for you.
Cheshire Cat: But I grin and bear it!

Cheshire Cat: How're you enjoying the game?
Alice: They don't play very fair.
Cheshire Cat: No one does if they think they can get away with it. That's a lesson you'll have to learn.


Alice: I have a little money, but I understand you don't use that here.
Hatter: Pieces of paper!
[whispers]
Hatter: Pointless.
-----------------------------------------------------------------


"We're all vulnerable. Mix the wrong feelings together, the right kind of bad with the wrong kind of good, and you'll wind up with a total breakdown."


"Become whole again. I need to rest. You need to regain your human size. Grow up, Alice. Embrace the truth."

Caterpillar

Blue Caterpillar: Who are you?
Alice Kingsley: Absolem?
Blue Caterpillar: You're not Absolem. I'm Absolem. Stupid girl.

Blue Caterpillar: You're almost Alice.

Blue Caterpillar: I can't help you if you don't even know who you are, stupid girl.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Alice: It's the Cheshire Cat! Oh, hello, Cheshire Cat.
Cheshire Cat: Hello. How do you like the Queen?
Alice: Not at all. I don't like that of losing my head. Would you?
Cheshire Cat: I could hardly afford that.


Hatter: Do you know why they call me 'Hatter'?
Alice: Because you wear a hat?
Hatter: ...No.



The Mad Hatter: You could stay.
Alice Kingsley: What an idea. What a mad, crazy, wonderful idea.
[They smile at each other]
Alice Kingsley: ... But I can't.
