Alice Liddell is dead and Wonderland is still reeling from a revolution that spanned the entire kingdom. A new King sits upon the throne - Jack, the former Knave of Hearts and once prince and revolution leader, is learning to cope with his new position as monarch of Wonderland. The tests to find new Alices in hopes of restoring Wonderland's magic continue as her inhabitants slowly pieces her back together. Yet questions still linger: where are the old King and his Queen? And how long can the vast array of Wonderlanders keep themselves hidden from the rest of London during their increasingly frequent trips to the city so far beyond the looking glass? Welcome to Far Beyond The Looking Glass, a present day rp based on the characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. It is currently Autumn 2014 in London, England, and Wonderland is currently experiencing an autumn-like season, too. Have a look around and don't be afraid to pop in the cbox if you have a question as we're quite a friendly bunch. We hope you decide to join and welcome!

Alice Liddell died in the early 1900s in a mental Asylum in London.
Her ravings about Wonderland had branded her a lunatic, and whilst her body languished in its new prison; the creatures of Wonderland pondered her disappearance- though it's rumoured the Cheshire Cat would visit her as she aged. In the year of 1934 her heart gave out, for she was an old woman then, and her body placed in a shallow grave in the gardens of Bethlem Royal Hospital.
It's a notable event for most Wonderlanders, for it was then that the Cheshire Cat began to show a darker nature.
It was a hundred years before they'd had enough, before someone decided to take action. It was the White Rabbit who first had the idea, that he could yet again go to the world above and lure down a new Alice, to restore the glory of Wonderland; it had been fading since the death of Ms. Liddell. It was met initially with disdain; for what plain mortal could hope to replace their dear Alice? Thus the initial plans were drawn up in secret, with the Rabbit enlisting the help of the devious Cheshire cat; known for being a duplicitous creature (though of course, so faithful to the Queen of hearts). The first few attempts were a failure, the youth of today too careless, too fickle to adhere to the old ways and the residents of Wonderland found themselves changing dramatically. It was, perhaps, when the Queen of Hearts found her husband now towered above her, that the monarchy decided to get involved.
Thus the plans were laid, the entirety of Wonderland learning to use the fabled looking glass, and the rabbit hole- to move back and forth between Wonderland and London at their leisure (though not many stayed in London, not knowing how it might affect their immortality). The Asylum where their dear Alice had lived and died was taken over, and made their London base. It was set up to be a school, to re-educate their successful Alice's into thinking their way. Of course, first the Potential Alice's must pass a test, before being permitted into the Academy.
The White Rabbit was given the task of collecting these potential Alice's and to put them through a rigorous test with the mysterious Cheshire Cat. If they completed this test they would be sent to the academy, if not- well... there was always the Cheshire Cat's black market for tickets into Wonderland... though you had to wonder if the price was worth it.
Do you have what it takes to become the new Alice?
*NEW PLOT UPDATE*
After a revolution staged by the Knave of Hearts, the previous monarchy has fallen leaving Jack in charge. A tentative new era is beginning, with changes already being made to make Wonderland a safer, fairer place. The Alice tests are ongoing, and nobody but the new King himself is aware of the Cheshire Cat's involvement in the plotting of the revolution and his control over the country.
Wonderland will never be the same.
