OMG you guys. SO I know I've not been around much (and sorry, that won't really be changing until after September), but I have a long weekend so I took the time yesterday to finish my painting and I'm soooo HAPPY with it! :D


While I have a few nitpicking parts (that I won't get into) I'm overall very pleased with how this turned out. No idea what I'll be doing with it now, lol, maybe mate and frame it, but it's lovely and makes me happy.

On a side note: Reason for my absence? Conventions. I've been attending cons to sell my dolls and doing better than I'd anticipated so that's where all of my non-work time has been going. After Baltimore comic con in Sept. I won't have another con until Jan so I'm hoping *crosses fingers* that I'll be able to do some writing and other things during that time. Until then...I shall most likely continue to be a ghost that occasionally finds a moment to comment.

It's late and since I won't be home to work on it this weekend, thought I'd share my progress so far on my dancing piece:

(Excuse the crooked picture taking, :P)
As you can see, I decided on watercolor for the medium, but I'll be adding additional details and texturing afterwards with color pencils. Really, really happy with how this is turning out so far. Also, proof to all my claims about actually having a degree in this stuff I suppose, lol. This is about 6 hours in of work, and only half that time was on the background sections. it bad when I no longer want to drive to VA to see my sister's senior fashion show this weekend and work on my picture instead?

Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows. Comment, and I'll give you a letter!

I don't often take up memes, but this one offered a challenge and some interesting character introspection. So without further ado-

I was hired to create the cover art for 2 books in a new series last month, which is part of the reason I haven't been able to work on all the projects that I want to right now. Since I've been doing all this drawing however, I decided to take some of that time to at least sketch out a picture that I've been wanting to do for months and months. The results are not letting me down. :)

(Pleas excuse the image size friends, but I couldn't bare to find just a preview slice for this)

Haven't cleaned it up yet for an inking, but the inspiration for the picture came from a scene in one of my fics where Hatter takes Alice swing dancing. :) Not sure what medium I'll use to color it in yet though...

Title: New New Wonderland - Prologue
Genre: Action/Adventure, Romance, Gen., Crossover: Doctor Who/Alice, 2009
Main Characters: Ten/Rose, Martha, The Queen of Hearts, Hatter/Alice
Rating: Teen/PG13
Word Count: ~3,100
Parallel worlds come into existence almost every second of every day. Each decision you make creates a parallel existence, a different dimension where things end up almost the same or...evolve into something completely different. New Earth AU from S3

Notes: This is the beginnings of a (possibly) lengthy AU crossover piece with Doctor Who and Alice in Wonderland. Specifically the version of the world from the 2009 movie called Alice. Knowledge of the movie will not be required to read/understand my little adventure here...but a quick wikipedia look up may help give you better visuals and hints about those characters in the story.

Should be a bit of fun involving science, 'magic', action, adventure, messing with timelines, and if the characters play their cards right...a reunion.

Prologue: A Change in the Ebb )
laialda: (filler)
So flisters, you may or may not have noticed a lack of any activity from me from about...mid November. The main reason for that being my friend and I were last minute confirmed for a table at the gaming convention Magfest. This of course meant the 5 months I originally had to make my little dolls suddenly became 1.5 and i had to crochet and sew like a mad woman.

All the work paid off in the end though as my friend and I had a kick ass time at the con and each made over 1k selling our geeky crafts. :D We were also interviewed! So if you'd like to see a tired Saturday morning me takling about my stuff then just click on the link here.

The most surprising thing for me at the con was just how popular Doctor Who was with gamers. I sold my 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor, 10th Doctor in Blue, Cyberman, and a plush TARDIS. Only poor Rose didn't sell :( Though I gave out lots of business cards to people anxious to see what new Doctor Who dolls I would make, so that's exciting as I love new friends/stalkers. ^_^

Two girls also made my weekend by knowing who/where my Hatter doll was from and we gushed over Mr. Potts for a good few minutes. :D

This was my first convention where I've been able to talk to people who are buying my dolls and it was really great to see how many people like my little creations, and talk to them about them. As such, I do have about 5 doll commissions to make before I can get started on new ones for my next convention in April (A comic con so lots of superhero dolls coming this way soon), but before then I want to churn out some new chapters for Curious and Curiouser. Poor chapter 11 has been in my head since June and I'd like to reward my faithful readers by writing up maybe another 4-5 chapters to post over the next 2 months so that while I'm working on dolls and things I don't have to worry about trying to write at the same time.

I'd also like to get some chapters written for my DW/Alice crossover New New Wonderland as I really want to get to the second arc as I've FINALLY over the last few months started to figure out how I'd change the plot of Alice. :)

Well, I've got one gaming onesie commission down and one to go before starting my dolls, but I'll be around the interwebs while I work so you should start seeing me around more. ^_^

Title: For a Legend
Rating: PG
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Family (also features character death)
Characters: Hatter/Alice from Alice (2009)
Word Count: ~1,100
Summary: "Though that was over 150 years ago," Hatter remarked skeptically as he turned to give this 'Alice' a once over, "Oyster's don't even live that long."
Notes: The start of my LJ posting of my fics, this short is honestly one of my favorite pieces I've ever written so I thought it would make a good starting point. Should still be enjoyable even if you don't know much about the movie.

Seventy-five years... )

Thanks to Funday Monday's topic on [ profile] doctor_rose_fix, I've spent this week on new art and old art. And for once I don't mean crafts.

...though I have worked on those too....


Follow me for pretty pictures )
Anyway, just thought I'd share. Feel free to let me know if you like them though. ^_^
laialda: (Thoughtful)
It's true. I never stop thiking about the fics I'm working on but, with a few exceptions, I usually don't feel like writing. Doubly so since my best friend moved out in June and I never get time alone to write (except for sitting on my bed in my room which is quite uncomfortable really). Combined with wedding planning/immigration paper work and crafting to sell tihngs at cons and you get a big lump of no time online.

Since hopping back into HP fics though and being just disgusted at what's popular right now (*gasp* your fic has Weasley and Dumbledore bashing to the extreme and Harry has a harem!!? That sounds so completely original! *rolls eyes with heavy amounts of sarcasm*) it has kicked my desire to write something decent back into the forefront on my mind. So this is where I stand on things:
  • Harry Potter/Alice Crossover 'Curious and Curious' - Chapter 11 now has a title to go with it's outline, along with many small notes in my head that I may or may not remember while I write. Hatter and Alice will be getting seperate scoldings and may have their talk before it ends, depends on how long the piece is already running.
  • Doctor Who/Alice Crossover 'New New Wonderland' - Chapter 2 has been sitting with about 2 pages typed into the first scene since June and I feel quite guilty about it. I've fallen into the trap of actually plotting everything out in detail and now have little drive to work on this crossover/ Doctor&Rose reunion fic as I know what happens. *sigh* Really would like to work on it some as it would be a very serious piece and I think my idea is a unquie one.

I have a week until my next convention so I do need to work on finishing the things I need for that (5 dolls, 4 hacky-sacks, bottlecaps and wands) but I think I'll try to do some writing tonight and see what comes of it. :)

Also, side note, after sepending some more time on LJ I think I'm going to put my fiction up on my journal here as well in the near by future. Thinking about back dating it if I do so I don't clog up those very few people who have me on their f-list. Plus it would let me make pretty banners for my stories and as an artist this appeals to me greatly. XD
laialda: (Evil)
And I am at that. *evil grin*

[info]sar_kaz_m this preview is being put up just for you to reassure you ch. 10 is under way (not to mention I'm fairly sure you're the only person who looks for these little bonuses of mine ;P ) and, if the 10 pages written so far are any indicator, should be finished either tomorrow or Monday. ^_~ Enjoy!
CaC chapter 10 excerpts/preview )

And that's all for right now. :D Like I said, should be finished in a day or two. Till then! ;)
laialda: (filler)
Still super busy even after my con as I'm leaving for a week long cross-country drive this Saturday but I am working on my stories when I have a minute or two of down time. It's Complicated will probably see and update before I hit the road, while CaC will be worked on during my trip. It has a rather important scene coming up between Hatter and Alice that's constantly on my mind. Part of it just hit me so I'm placing it here for now. I think it's mostly spoil free as I kept things vague for the posting here, but it's also possible it will change somewhat anyway before it gets placed in the chapter.

There be dragons here )
laialda: (excited)
Just saw the article for this and of course it would be in Japan. I would jump at the chance to go to this bar/restaurant for my next birthday. Well done theme from what the pictures show.

....damn, now I feel the need to write an Alice one shot where the pair visits this place >.<
laialda: (Thoughtful)
Okay, for whatever reason, I just can't make this scene work the way I want it too. It just feels awkward or the flow is wrong in some sections and I'm officially giving up on fixing it. Been trying to fix it for 2 weeks now. You know things are bad when you'll do just about anything BUT write stuff you've been looking forward to getting down in print for months.

Still, the idea had made me happy at one point and it's for bits like these that my LJ exists in the first place. Below is the now deleted bit. The event will still happen, but it will be in summary now. Hopefully I can finish chapter 8 by the end of the week as a result.

The few days the trio had to prepare came and went both quickly and too slowly at the same time until Friday afternoon found them stepping out of a taxi cab a good hour outside of New York City. It seemed strange at first that the lawyer would live so far out of the city to Alice but staring at the house behind the gate and curved driveway before them left no doubt in her mind that it was the right place. The paneling of the large imposing mansion had seen better days and she couldn’t quite shake the feeling that something was watching her as she followed Hatter towards the house. The creeping ivy and dead plants surrounding the connected greenhouse added to the feeling and she squeezed Hatter’s hand as she moved closer to him for additional comfort.

In short, the place gave her the creeps and Alice sincerely hoped they wouldn’t be kept here long before leaving for England.

Feeling Hatter give her hand a return squeeze caused her took look up at him finally and seeing his slightly wary glance at the house before them assured her more than the his grip had and she allowed a small smile. Harry’s energetic jog up the front steps proved he was the only member of their group still as excited as when they’d woken up that morning. Not wanting to be the reason to bring that happiness down, Alice let out a steadying breath and gave Harry a real smile when he looked back at the pair after ringing to door bell. A low rang tone through the house for a few seconds before the front door creaked open.

Instead of a face appearing, the first thing Alice could see was bottom ‘v’ of a vest and she had to look up, and then up some more until the expressionless face of a man she didn’t think would look out of place in a funeral parlor met hers. He stared down at all three of them without a word until Hatter finally broke the silence.

“Hello,” she heard him grin to her left, “I believe Mr. Addams is expecting us?”

The expressionless man gave a rumbling noise of what Alice could only guess was consent before stepping back as he opened the door fully. Harry had been unnerved by the tall man as well it seemed as he stuck closer to Alice and Hatter now as the three entered together and took in the front hall. It was clear that the office on Mulberry Street had been designed to match the house as dark gray wood and somber decorations surrounded them. Not letting his apprehension take over his innate curiosity apparently, Harry drifted away to look at some of the strange items in the hall. Before he could be warned not to touch any of them though, Harry stroked what had appeared to be a dark green stone lizard, that quickly uncurled from around the lamp base upon being touched, and shot a breath of fire at him before scuttling off.

“What the hell was that?!” Alice gasped while Harry laughed and tried to find the escaped lizard.

“That was Gustav,” a young woman’s voice to their right answered calmly and all three of them turned to look at her. Standing at the base of a large staircase, she appeared to be about Alice’s age with jet black hair bound in a single braid that fell over her shoulder and seemed to disappear into the mid-thigh length black dress she wore. “You scared him,” she stated in a flat monotone and looked down at Harry, “He doesn’t like to be touched by strangers.”

“Sorry,” Harry smiled brightly, “Thought he was part of the lamp; didn’t mean to give him a fright.” He then looked around the hall once, “Course I’m not sure what he’d find scary ‘bout me living in a place like this yeah?”

The woman raised one thin eyebrow and cracked the hint of smile at Harry’s comments before turning to their left, “Come with me. Father has been expecting you.” Still not feeling comfortable in the place, Alice took comfort from Hatter’s calm presence and Harry’s nonchalance as the group followed behind the unknown woman.

A short trip down the hall found them led into a study and Alice felt Hatter tense at the wide range of swords on display along the walls. It only took a moment for her to remember what he’d said about his last meeting with his lawyer and suddenly the encounter didn’t seem quite so funny any more.

“Father,” their guide stated as she stopped in front of a large desk. She looked back at their group once as they filed in beside her before turning to face the desk again, “They’re here. Are you prepared yet?”

Alice could only assume the man behind the desk shrinking files and sticking them in an open trunk was Mr. Addams and thankfully he didn’t seem interested in another impromptu sword fight. With a wave of his hand a few more items jumped into the open trunk before it closed with a resonating ‘thunk’. “Yes, I believe that will take of us for the week Wednesday,” he remarked before looking up at their little group. “Welcome dear friends,” Mr. Addams grinned wildly and spread his arms as he walked around the desk.

He glanced over each of them before locking eyes with Alice and she found herself very uncomfortable with the look he gave her. “What an enchanting creature you have brought with you Mr. Hatter,” Mr. Addams charmed and placed a short kiss on her hand that Alice discreetly wiped off on her jeans. No matter how charming he was trying to be, Alice couldn’t help feeling creeped out but this man for some reason.

“Umm, thanks. I think,” she managed to reply with a wary glance at Hatter who just smiled back at her in amusement.

“This is Alice,” Hatter introduced her properly, “Harry’s secondary guardian. I thought it best she be a part of this yeah?” He gave her a quick smile and she saw Mr. Addams nod understandingly.

“Certainly,” Mr. Addams agreed before grinned widely once more, but this time at Harry. “And you,” he continued with a touch of awe, “You must be Harry Potter himself.”

Harry smiled back at the man with ease, “Well if I must be, then I suppose I am.” He looked curiously back at the woman standing off to the side, “She coming along too?”

“Yes,” Mr. Addams clapped his hands once and gestured for the woman to come closer, “This is my daughter, Wednesday Addams. She’s the other half of our legal team and agreed to help with the battle ahead.”

Unfinished obviously. Shame it wasn't working out, but I feel better getting rid of it then keep messing with it.

laialda: (Dr. Who)
The ideas. Make them stop. Now if you please.

Seriously though, I've been plagued with plot bunnies these past few weeks the likes of which I haven't seen in a long time. I blame watching Dr. Who personally. Damn show turning my first steps at fourth dimensional thinking sideways. It's seriously not fair. I've got the Doctor monologing in my head lately when I need Hatter dammit. the only time he want to show himself though is to whisper dirty things in my mind - jump at the bottom if that's all you'd like to take a peak at.

So far I've been hit with three story ideas - well - four really, but the fourth one isn't right in the realm of throw out the window or set aside for another day...but I'm not sure if it would turn out well. This is me tossing them all out there though to be encouraged or shot down equally.

1) A Harry Potter & OC centered fic. That right there should tell you how much I'm not planning on writing it. Fans seem to hate OCs with a passion. Either way, idea was neat. Involved a normal young person having lucid dreams about the series and changing things cause well, their dream who cares? but only Harry can seem to remember the dreamer and events that took place after they left. Things change and stuff happens - Moving on!

2) A Doctor Who Piece.  As often as the Darleks keep popping up, I have to imagine the universe won't stand for an absence of any kind. To that affect, this fic idea mainly revolved around the consequences of Rose taking the time vortex into her and having it cause changes in her. Both mentally and physically. Essentially a rewriting of season two of the new Doctor as a consequence.

3) A Doctor Who/Alice 2009 Crossover. Simple premise really. I just like the idea of bringing the 10th Doctor into the fun of Wonderland's government upheaval. Could be any companion but I am fond of Rose. Course to do it properly I'd need to change the entire story and honestly, if I can't to do the other one this one's not being done either.

Click for Hatter's evil promises )

Bah, I should've known better than to keep a log by my bed to write these things down. I'm off to try chugging away at CaC ch. 8 again. If I can just get past this stupid scene I know the rest will write itself! >.<
laialda: (Run)
I really enjoy writing these extra scenes as they give me a chance to not only do extra characterization that I couldn't fit in with the flow of the story, or flesh out events that get mentioned, but once again, have no home in the main story. Chapter three had been giving me such hell getting started that I thought about working on one, but I think I'll write one after it now that it's finally underway. I have a few that would compliment the plot right now (or for the next chapter) but not sure which I want to do more.
-The talk between Hatter and Pen I've referenced a few times, would mainly showcase the friendship they had along with Hatter's blatant inexperience with raising a kid
-Snippets of moments between Carol and Robert, including their reunion from Carol's POV, their first date, plans for the future, and possibly a bit with Hamilton family before Robert's kidnapping. A lot of their interaction happens off camera and I do feel like I neglect them
-Archibald Potter's fall into Wonderland, though if I do this one I may wait until after chapter 4 to post it as it would relate better

I have a few others that I've had on the plate since I started writing the extra chapters as well, one or two of which I've mentioned before.
-Charlie laying the reanimated knights to rest, which would include a tear filled moment between him and Sir Blagden as well as another hint for something I've been building on quite subtly, you know who you are if you've picked up on it ^_~
-More bonding/funny scenes with Harry and Hatter during Harry's two or so years in Wonderland, including the the hat catching on fire incident, the trip into Tugley Woods, and swimming lessons
-Jack and Duchess relationship scenes after Alice leaves, which would just be character building between the pair, fairly low on my list since they don't feature much in the sequel
-Reggie dealing with Hatter and Harry's 'sudden' disappearance after they go through the Looking Glass, and this will be moving up the list as I write more of CaC as it will become plot involved, but I don't think it will mesh well with the story flow, we'll see
-Summer vacation to Disney World, which has been done in other one shots before, but...well, they didn't have the people I have in mind to bring there *evil grin* >:D

Can you believe that all I need is a list of sentences (10 words or less typically) to remind me of these? I fear my brain will explode from all of these ideas one day... O.O

(p.s.-Chapter 3 is now titled There are no answers, only cross-references. Chapter 4 will be Go not to surrealist for council, for they will say both blue, and hippopotamus. The later of which I have on button pinned to the bulletin board at my desk. ^_^)
laialda: (Default)
I've had the idea for this plot for awhile where Hatter goes to Alice's world before the events of the movie by about a year or so and meets her then. Since I'm already trying to rewrite one major plot though I just don't have the time or energy to do another >.< I just wish someone would tell my brain that. When I kept getting stuck on chapter two it would rear it's little head and go 'Hey! You know how you want some of these scenes to go. Why not write them! :D'

So I did. Just so they'd leave me alone, and it worked well enough. As I mentioned before though, I don't like leaving unfinished scenes around on my hard drive as it makes me want to finish them, and I am a firm believer that sharing it caring ;P Enjoy!

“You sure about this Hatter?” March pressed seriously as the two waited in a room off to the side of the Looking Glass, “There’s no coming back if you change your mind.”

 Hatter raised an eyebrow skeptically at him, “Seeing as how I’ve called in just about all of my favors for this trip. I think we can safely say that the time to back out has long since passed yeah?”

 “True enough,” March shrugged unconcerned now and looked out the door before cracking out a crick in his neck, “Let’s make it look good then.”

David Hatter only just managed to catch himself as he shot out of the Looking Glass. Moaning as his arm was unable to hold him up and he rolled over to lay flat on his back. Fuck me…that hurt,” he groaned before moving his right arm up to wipe off the blood from his spilt lip. Attempting to stand proved that Marchie had likely bruised a few ribs as well, but none of it was damage that wouldn’t heal up in a day or two. With the show they’d up on for the techs running the mirror though, no one was likely to look into his ‘banishment’ from Wonderland outside of work gossip. 

He felt a moment of pure panic as he groped about in his jacket pocket for what seemed to be a missing item before the euphoric rush filled him as he finally grasped the miniature trunk. Hatter’s entire life was in that trunk as it contained not only the money from selling his shop and valuables, but the papers that would prove his citizenship to this world. His entire life fit in that one box right now. 

Looking outside the unfinished building in the construction site the Looking Glass had so violently deposited him, he could see the a single waning moon like a Cheshire’s grin hung high in the sky and me smiled back at it. His escape did feel very Cheshire worthy after all and he took his first breath deep breath of freedom out from under the Queen’s rule.

“Morning Alice,” the freckled red head chirped a greeting at the brunette walking in the door; sending curious looks to the far side where tarps were being set up.

 “Hey Chloe,” she distractedly replied as she stopped in front of the other side of the counter, “Are you guys closing the cafe? I thought business had picked up?”

 Chloe’s look became serious as she paused in preparing Alice’s usual drink, “Actually…they were thinking of closing if we didn’t bring in better numbers by the end of this month, but thankfully some guy bought the place instead.” She smiled brightly before continuing, “He’s got this wicked vision to redesign the place so we will be shuting down for a few weeks while that gets done but…oh Alice it’ll be so amazing when we do reopen!” 

Alice smiled at her enthusiasm and paid for her usual morning drink before taking a sip and sighing contently, “Will it really take that long? I don’t know what I’ll do with out my daily fix.” 

“Pretty sure,” Chloe shrugged and then peered to her left at the people moving about down there. She pointed as her eye caught sight of one of them, “You can go ask the new owner if you want though. Name’s David. He’s got a squashed brown hat on his head and devilishly cute. See ‘em? 

Alice looked down that way and seeing only one person in a hat, nodded that she did before waving a goodbye and carefully picking her way across the floor to speak with the new owner of her favorite café. Just as she was about to tap him on the shoulder to get his attention however, he spun around suddenly in her direction; throwing off her balance and narrowly avoiding knocking her drink out of her hand, and all over her. 

“Whoa! Sorry about that,” the man apologized in a thick British accent and helped to steady her, “Can I help you find something then? It’s a bit tricky down at this end right now ya see, and I wouldn’t want you take a spill.” He grinned widely as he released her and Alice had to admit to herself that the image was satisfyingly attractive. 

“It’s my fault,” she protested, “Chloe told me you were the new owner and I just had some questions about how long the place might be closed during the remodeling.” Alice raised the cup in her right hand a little higher and smiled, “I don’t know how I’ll survive finals week without my morning cup.” 

He gestured to the cup, “May I?” 

Confused and slightly curious, Alice reluctantly parted with what might be the last cup of tea she’d be getting for weeks and passed it to the new owner’s waiting hands. He expertly pulled off the lid and took a whiff of the hot contents and closed him eyes for a second or two before reattaching the top and passing her drink back. “Chinese Black tea with a splash of the vanilla hazelnut cream?” he purposed and Alice gaped for a minute before grinning widely. 

“Wow…at least I know the place will still be good hands,” she chuckled lightly. 

“Yeah, we’ll be carrying my own special blends on the new menu as well,” he gestured back to the counter with another charming grin, “Care for a free sample?”

laialda: (excited)
I love Syfy's Alice. Did you know? The Tim Burton one? Eh, not so much. Maybe if it had come out before hand but I just feel that Syfy's Alice was darker, and well, had a decent plot really ;P

That being said, I do love the Almost Alice soundtrack. It actually has decent artists and songs...but I never felt like it fit Burton's movie. Whenever I listen to it, I think of Hatter and Alice from alice and I don't see that ever changing. *nods* So today while skipping through songs at work on my ipod, I realized that no one really cares what my album art is besides me so screw the creepy Johnny Depp picture, I'm putting in some Hatter and Alice love! ^_^ Sadly either no one seems to agree with me...or my short search was not enough to turn up any decent results. As such, I decided to make some of my own and am posting them here to share.

I haven't attempted image design in....years. My main vision was just to keep these simple. Clean lines, stylized font and a few accents. Feel free to download and use to your pleasure. :D I like some more than others (first one is probably my fav) but I know I will like them all over the album art currently in use ;P Took all of these screens myself so if you'd like to use one, let me know and I'll send it your way.

laialda: (Wrong)
Started writing chapter one for the sequel last night. Got almost a full page typed before I realized I didn't like how it was going as the feel was all wrong. Still...some of the stuff sounded good as far as writing goes and I'm just going to dump it here for archiving. Wee! See creative process in action! >.<

Sometimes, it is the smallest actions that can have the most dramatic effects. A smile passed among strangers to lighten the day. Words whispered in darkened corners igniting a revolution. It is a theory commonly known as the butterfly effect, or occasionally an event called serendipity. In either case, it is small common day occurrence that compounds to far reaching consequences.


David Hatter, formally a native of Wonderland, was currently experiencing such an event as he sat on the couch of his rented apartment in New York City. The tension was easy to read in his shoulders as he played with the hat that had formally been sitting upon his head and his eyes flickered toward the door expectantly. His younger cousin, Harry Potter, and girlfriend, Alice Hamilton, were also present in the room and seemed to be showing varying degrees of tension as well as time continued to tick by. Not more than a few hours ago, it had been just a normal day for the current occupants of the moderately sized flat.


The appearance of a dove baring a short note had quickly compounded into much more than an innocent correspondence and was the cause of the current state of apprehension.


Hatter had attempted to appear unconcerned at the lack of answers from his phone call with his contact to his old world, and the reassurances that someone who could give him those answers would be arriving ‘soon’ continued to be insufficient as the minutes ticked by into hours.


When the knock on his front door came almost exactly two hours after his phone call, Hatter didn’t feel the need to ridicule the password system for once as he quickly made his way to see who was there.
