Adventures in Underland by Artoveli Adventures in Underland by Artoveli
My entry for the "Picture Yourself in Wonderland" contest currently being hosted by DA.:dance:

Instead of limiting myself to a single portrait, I tried to think of a few different scenarios to illustrate what would have happened if McTwisp really had made the unfortunate mistake of bringing the wrong person down the rabbit hole...

1 - For pretty much the whole time I had to stagger around squinting at stuff because my glasses didn't shrink with me, and the Dodo wouldn't give me his specs after Absolem proclaimed that I wasn't Alice by any stretch of the imagination.

2 - I was happy to unburden Tarrant of a little bit of his misery by at last unraveling this mystery for him.

3 - I'd like to thank the gardener from the bottom of my heart for putting a giant rosebush right there.

4 - The choice of a corset or a codfish is no choice at all.

5 - You should never watch your food being prepared.

6 - I was EXTREMELY NOT OKAY with this.

That last fiasco was such a colossal disappointment to everyone that I had to climb back down/up the rabbit hole by myself. But at least my glasses fit me again.

A raven is like a writing desk because Poe wrote on both.

I know several answers, including yours, but the official answer is: "Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is nevar put with the wrong end in front!"

I get the first part, but not the second.

Well, no one would mistake the front end of either a raven or a writing desk for the back, right? Except that "nevar" is actually raven spelled backwards.:XD:

This was Lewis Carroll's answer to the riddle, so of course it's a little off-the-wall.

He really, really wants to know the answer to the riddle. That's why he's always asking.

So I told him!

That was some adventure!

I loved the stained glass style you used to tell your story! It came out really interesting.

I think it would be cooler if you used your own wonderland characters. I love them!

And, THAT is why I'd never go down the rabbit hole in the first place.
Love the hat in number four, btw.

But then, Alice didn't really mean to go down the rabbit hole either time, herself... And I have to say that if I saw a rabbit in a waistcoat go by I would absolutely investigate.:XD:
