Cordelia

"Not from around here, you say?" asked the Queen of Hearts, turning around to face the two Laviturnians. "I suppose that explains a lot; most hedgehogs around here do not walk on two legs..."

She looked as if she were considering whether or not to lop their heads off, but seeing that she had already shouted the order for Cordelia (and that it hadn't been carried out), she found that she would much rather proceed with the croquet game than anything at the moment.

The Queen of Hearts harshly grabbed two flamingoes that squawked when she grasped their necks. Their eyes bugged out and their tongues went taut, before hanging from the side of their beaks. The Queen thrust these flamingoes at Ryle and Dipin; the birds staggered forward and leaned into the two interdimensional travelers' chests.

Meanwhile, Cordelia struggled to get her own flamingo to cooperate; in the end, she found herself muttering curses and wishing that she had a real mallet for this game. "Why must we use flamingoes?" Cordelia asked a passing ten-of-spades.

"Same reason we use hedgehogs. The Queen of Hearts has 3 e's in her title and therefore warrants the use of flamingoes and hedgehogs as croquet equipment," the ten explained.

Cordelia didn't quite understand the logic behind this, but simply wrapped her arm around her flamingo's neck and walked it to the court.

Croquet at the court of Hearts was quite chaotic, to say the least. As it turns out, the Queen of Hearts was a very adamant croquet player, and very passionate about the sport, and so...

Cordelia flinched as, for the tenth time this match, the Queen of Hearts bellowed, "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!" Half of the wickets had been removed from play due to the Queen's haphazard orders of execution. These cards were escorted off the playing field and unseen for the rest of the match.

"Wake up Mister Bubbles!" Light flowed into the Big Daddy's sensory organs as he regained consciousness, the Little Sister was standing on his chest knocking on his head with her tiny fists, as she saw him wake up as he crawled up as he picked himself up.

"Mister Bubbles where are we?", They were is some sort of rectangular room the only exit seeming to be a wooden door a few inches tall, with a normal sized brass doorknob, Seeing how this was the only was out the little splicer walked over and tried to turn it."D'ooooh! " Sounded the apparently alive Brasspiece, the little Sister shrieked in surprise and fell back.
The animate piece made several sniffling sounds, and squinted at the Little Sister  "Quite sorry to scare you little miss, but you did give me quite a turn" The metal thing gave a grin out of his keyhole which apparently functioned as a mouth, and then raised and eyebrow"Rather good, what? Doorknob? Tu-MMMMMPH?!" The voice was muffled as Little Sister jammed her Collecting tool in his mouth and started to fiddle with in,attempting to break the lock.
"Maybe we should use a hacking tool!"The Little Sister said as she continued to fiddle, The Brasspiece disliked this notion and spit out the tool,"Now hold on there shall be no hacking and slashing here, especially not with tools!"
"It won't work anyway, you little girl are much to big!, and he is much, much, much to big!"

"Than why don't we just make the doorway bigger?"The Little Girl asked.

"My Little Girl there is no such need fo-I SAID THERE IS NO SUCH NEED STOP THAT!" The Doorknob screamed as The Big Daddy reeved up his drill, the large splicer stopped, if only momentarily.

The Doorpiece continued clearly rattled, "On the table behind you there is a potion, that ought to cut you down to size".

A translucent glass tabled floated out of nowhere and upon settling on the ground, took a more solid shape, Little Sister stumbled over to the table and grabbed the bottle"DRINK ME" she read tracing her fingers over the words.

Laviturnians
Dipin and Ryle both picked up their flamingos. The idea of using living creatures as mallets seemed to have struck the two as strange as expressed by the concerned look on Ryles face and Dipin's hair and front row of quills were raised. Ryle then took note of the fact the balls were infact what appeared to non sentient hedgehogs. With a concerned tone Ryle asked Dipin a question regarding the similar biology between the hedgehogs, "Dipin should we be worried for the balls here?"
"Assuming they are similar to the talking and silent hedgehogs back home, quills are really good at absorbing shock. They should be fine, I'd worry more about the mallets."

The two then took a few practice swings as they waited for their turns.

Cordelia

It actually didn't appear to be anyone's turn in particular... Cordelia watched each player whack a hedgehog haphazardly across the field. The flamingoes were really none too happy about getting whirled about like helicopter rotors (especially not the bird of the Queen of Hearts, who got mercilessly flung around whenever the Queen ordered an execution).

Cordelia gave up trying to use the flamingo in the first place (it was something she had considered many times and only now did she decide to cave and let the poor bird go). There weren't all that many players left, anyhow. Cordelia walked back towards Dipin and Ryle. "Nothing in this kingdom makes sense," Cordelia remarked, turning to address Ryle. "But judging by the way the ruling class rules... I'm going to guess that it doesn't necessarily have to."

Cordelia paced back and forth. "I'm just wondering why we're here. Why did I meet Scraps, Lofty, and Fat Guy? What drew me towards either of you? What unseen force compels us to be together?" she continued, before stopping to look up at Ryle. "I don't suppose your answer would be any better than any of mine. I mean, I could only guess Outrealm shenanigans if I had to take a stab at an explanation."

Fat Guy

On the other side of the door, Fat Guy had stumbled into a garden of massive flowers... and they all thought he looked like a large, ugly beet.

"Who ya callin' a beet?!" Fat Guy asked, appalled and offended that flowers could be so blatantly rude.

"Why, you, of course," said a daffodil.

"If not a beet, then some sort of weed. I detest weeds," sniffed a marigold.

"I'm not a weed! I'm not even a plant, for crying out loud!" Fat Guy fumed.

A shriek rang from the west of where Fat Guy stood, and a subsequent shout reached the flower bed. Fat Guy tried to climb up a violet to get a better look at the situation, but was promptly swatted down. He landed on his rear end and tumbled to the doorframe.

Doorways in Wonderland are odd. Alice, when she fell down the rabbit-hole and cried giant tears that formed a sea after she realized she had grown much too large from eating (proportionally, of course; she transformed into a giant), found a different way into Wonderland, though had she gone through the door she would be standing where Fat Guy was.

This doorway happened to be the one which Little Sister had tried to pry open with her extraction tool, though whether or not a syringe works well as a lock-pick is beyond me.

But Fat Guy couldn't help wonder why that shriek had rung out--

"SOMEONE HAS KILLED THE DAISIES!!!"

Nope. Definitely bad.

Laviturnians
Given the fact Laviturn was either in America or a similar location, didn't seem to particularly care. Ryle
took moment to "I think Dipin mentioned something called a Dimensional Clash. Is that right Dipin?" Dipin having been in the seventh Dimensional Clash then responded, "Yeah that's right, long story short one force creates an issue, then the same force and a few others pick people to put an end to the issue. My boss had my check out the last one. There were some people by the names of Robin, Lucina, Tiki, Morgan, and I think a Severa." Ryle then continued giving Cordelia his theory, "Yea, going from that I guess we're looking for something really out of place then fixing that. Easier said than done. Judging from everyone's reaction I don't think anything is out of place here."

Slapstick
Licking his thumb and forefinger, he snuffed out the small flame on one of the tufts of his purple hair. He almost in all the hustle and bustle of this "Crazy Coffee Ceremony" didn't notice the horrifying grey form shambling out of the brush.

It stood on all fours a large mass of grey fur spotted with black patches along its body, four stubby legs tipped with four razor-sharp claws, two rounded ears, much like a bear's twitched to the tune of the party, as a large deformed wet black nose sniffed the air, its two eyes foggy and grey much like the eyes if a corpse observed the party with a predatory intent.

Its massive maw opened its as if teeth were haphazardly stuck in rows of disorder in the bloodred gums by some mad creator, they too were razor-sharp as it growled and LAWNCHED itself like the cat it sort of resembled.

The Toon yelp as it chomped down on him swallowing him whole, however it was not so as Slapstick used his arms and legs to pry open the creature's jaw.

"HEY!" Slapstick yelled as he struggled to keep the beast from closing its mouth, Pyro glanced over  while casually pouring a stream of liquid china into a cup of solid tea, The mercenary cocked his head curiously wondering just what Slapstick was doing .

"Just what are you doing?, "Its quite dangerous to be doing that!" Pyro explained as he took a sip.

"YOU SON OF A *BLEEP* GO *BLEEP* *BLEEP* *BLEEP* *BLEEP* WITH A SIDE OF *BLEEP!*" Slapstick responded unable to actually swear.
Pyro leaned back in his chair twisting a teapot shaped fruit off its vine and poured a cup.
"No need to be impolite, just trying to help"
The Toon's face grew red as steam erupted out of his ears, his left arm as if made of rubber stretched forward and smacked the cup out of Pyro's hand, and then smacked Pyro across the face before stretching back.

"......" went Pyro before vaulting over the table Powerjack in his hands, Slapstick closed the mouth as Pyro smashed the surprised Bandersnatch on THA DOME.

The creature stumbled dazed as the Toon pried open the jaw and fell out. "Well its about t-" Pyro clonked him on the head with the hammer.

Slapstick was about to go into a angry discussion about how very wrong the merc was when the Bandersnatch pounced.



Little Sister
She took a sip,"Tastes like plasmids" then with a sudden decrease in size,she said "Potato chips, Angel tears," with each comparison she shrunk until she could fit through the door, she toddled over to the door, "Can I go through now?" The Doorknob chuckled "But I'm still locked my dear!" the Little Sister looked confused, "The Key?"

The Doorknob rolled his eyes, "On the Table!" he said up on the glass table the key materialized.

The Big Daddy fumbled with the key but was ultimately unable to grab the key due to his over sized stubbly fingers,"LOOKS LIKE WE NEED TO MAKE A HOLE THAN!" Little Sister called up cuffing her hands to her mouth.

The Doorknob became alarmed his metal face stretching into a expression of abject horror,"No NO just calm down, just....just take one of these they'll make you bigger!" a small little candy appeared at the Little Sister's feet the words "EAT ME" were printed on it.

Cordelia

Um. Wow. Okay. There is no way that any of those names could be a coincidence. In fact, now that Dipin mentioned it, Robin did tell the guard about some kind of... magic hedgehog?

Cordelia decided not to comment on that, though she would probably have time to ask Dipin about that later. Especially since he made mention of her daughter. But something about what Ryle said bothered her somewhat.

"I'm a bit concerned about that pillar of flame that just spurted from the woods," Cordelia said. "Even though the locals said something about... a jabberwock? I highly doubt that that was something of this world."

She turned back towards the Queen of Hearts. "Unpleasant as this Queen may seem, I'm unsure if I want something that powerful to devastate this kingdom, given what happened back in the kingdom of Camelot."

Scraps

"Goodness gracious! A Bandersnatch!" the Mad Hatter yelped, grabbing a chair and prodding at the ferocious creature with a chair. "N-n-now stay back... Stay back!" he stammered.

Scraps simply stared at the pudgy leopard-like creature. It pounced on Pyro and rolled across the table, sending china flying everywhere. The sound of breaking plates and teacups rang out in the garden as the frumious Bandersnatch wrestled with the mercenary. The Bandersnatch growled and yowled as they tumbled about.

The March hare and the Mad Hatter together managed to pry the animal off the Pyro, but the mercenary had enraged it quite badly. The Bandersnatch violently whirled about and snapped at the two mad fellows, causing them to stagger backwards from fright. The Mad Hatter was now quite pale; it is not every day that an un-birthday party is crashed by a rather large, rather frightening wild animal.

"BAD BANDERSNATCH! DOWN! HEEL!" the March hare hollered, waving a saucer of butter at the advancing Bandersnatch. The saucer trembled in his hand. The Bandersnatch snorted and the March hare scrambled behind the Mad Hatter, still clutching the butter saucer. The Bandersnatch's muscular, stocky body rippled as it stalked towards them.

Scraps's eyes darted left towards Pyro and Slapstick, before turning back towards the Bandersnatch. She then grabbed a teapot and stumbled towards the animal. The guttural growling of the Bandersnatch rumbled and forced the Mad Hatter and March hare backwards. Scraps plucked the lid of the teapot out and tossed it over her shoulder, before approaching the Bandersnatch and turning the whole pot over its head. Brown tea immediately poured from the opening, running down the Bandersnatch's forehead, and over its snout. The animal immediately whirled around and knocked Scraps flat. She spilled the tea all over herself as the Bandersnatch pounced upon her, its powerful forelegs pressing down on her stuffed body.

Her facial fabric sopping wet with the tea, Scraps shook her head and prepared to get tossed about like a chew toy as the Bandersnatch's heated exhalations snorted down the front of her neck. Its razor teeth and its hideous gums were quite literally three inches from her face.

The Bandersnatch abruptly stuck its tongue out and, like a dog, began to lap at Scraps's face with its tongue, like a massive pink Brillo pad, scraping against her patchwork skin. Scraps shut her eyes and yelped. "ACKPTH! GAGH!" she blubbered. "No! Down!" she ordered. "Down!"

It seemed as if the Bandersnatch had forgotten about the Pyro's blow (their hides are quite tough, after all). Scraps found her field of vision flashing between the sides of the Bandersnatch's flattened skull and its gaping mouth, with its rows of pointed teeth and its blackened gums and its massive tongue.

"I think a certain someone," Scraps mumbled, muffled under the Bandersnatch's licking, "is also quite fond of tea."

The Bandersnatch backed up a bit and stared down at Scraps expectantly, as if it wanted her to accidentally douse herself with tea again and let the Bandersnatch slurp up the mess again. Or something to that effect. Scraps struggled to her feet and dusted her dress off (the Bandersnatch's paws were quite dirty), before doing a little tap-dancing flourish and bopping the Bandersnatch over the nose. The confused animal sat down and put a paw on its own nose as Scraps pulled another (surviving) teapot from the table. She soaked a tea-cracker in the drink and wiggled it in front of the Bandersnatch. The Bandersnatch tentatively sniffed at it before turning its massive head sideways and sticking its tongue out to drag the whole cracker into its mouth, its jaws moving up and down like a dog as it devours a treat.

Scraps gave the others a silly grin. "Now, don't you dare whack Mr. Bandersnatch over the head with your hammer again, fire-man!" Scraps chided playfully, sticking a finger out at Pyro and waggling it facetiously. She turned back to the Bandersnatch, watching it continue to chew on the tea-soaked cracker. Its head bowed as its jaws worked. Scraps patted it on the forehead, standing on the tips of the toes of her shoes.

Perhaps the Bandersnatch was on a sort of hunt; it smelled food, and therefore, it came. Wild animals are like that. Perhaps Bandersnatches are a bit like bears, or perhaps large dogs. Or maybe a bit of both.

She stroked behind the Bandersnatch's ear. It seemed to enjoy this. At this point, it seemed to have altogether forgotten its violent, predatory intent. "You ought to give it a try," Scraps said to the others. The March hare and Mad Hatter seemed reluctant to do so.

Father

Lewis Carroll, in "Jabberwocky" wrote:Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
 The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, is not a creature to be trifled with. And when you send a spiraling column of flame into the air, God knows what kind of challenge the Jabberwock shall take that as. Jabberwocky are terrifying creatures, with massive claws and horrible mole-like jaws that snap and crunch. They have fearsome leathery wings, stringy, gangly limbs and cruel talons. Their bodies have a hide that looks a bit like a cross between lizard scales and a suit vest. One would liken a Jabberwock to a ferocious dragon.

And as it came whiffling through the tulgey wood, Father met its eyes of flame with flames of his own. Nothing in this nonsense realm would overwhelm the no-nonsense, autocratic Father. Father levitated off the ground as the flames around him grew in size. The Jabberwock roared and spat flames into the air as well, as Father tackled the creature in the chest. The Jabberwock staggered backwards, its whiskery tendrils flailing in the air as the villain attempted to drag it to the ground. "Whimsy is UNNECESSARY!" Father roared. "Obedience is MANDATORY!"

The Jabberwock opened its claws that snatch and swiped at Father as he floated through the boughs, setting the trees ablaze. The monster stomped towards Father, stamping its feet into the ground and causing a minor quake in the vicinity.

Father had to concede that the Jabberwock was a stubborn, stalwart beast; but Father's evil will shall break it soon enough.

The Jabberwock charged at Father, opening its jaw wide and leaning its neck forward to swallow Father whole.

Father disappeared down the triumphant Jabberwock's gullet, and the monster reared its neck to roar in dominance.

But as it did, it felt a thump on its throat. The Jabberwock clutched at its own neck, confused, then startled as Father forced its neck rigid and sailed out of the monster's throat, cloaked in flame. Father yelled in fury as he stretched out his limbs and chewed on his pipe. He glared at the Jabberwock. "Naughty, naughty Jabberwocky," Father growled. "Devouring your superior is AGAINST... THE... RULES!!!" Father raised his arms over his head and formed a massive ball of flame over his head. The Jabberwock took a guard stance, crossing its arms in front of it and folding its wings in.

But Father did not hurl the fireball at the Jabberwock. No, he hurled it straight at the ground, and when it struck, it violently erupted, sending the Jabberwock reeling backwards and felling a tree, toppling it on top of the Jabberwock and crushing its lean body underneath its hard wood.

Father descended to the ground, his silhouetted loafers lightly touching the ground. He approached the prone Jabberwock and raised his hand, forming a fireball in his hand.

But as he approached, the Jabberwock raised its head to the sky and let out a horrible graunchulous screech, a Jabberwock mating call.

The tulgey wood was the native home of the massive Jabberwock, and a roar like that would attract every Jabberwock in the vicinity, and soon, Father found himself standing in a circle of Jabberwocky, their jaws gnashing, and their claws flexing, ready to snatch.

Father clenched his fists together as they ignited, and he narrowed his eyes. "Playtime is over," he snarled.

As Pyro got was helped up by his mad companions he defended himself. "I wasn't trying to hit the kitty, I was trying to bash the clown!" Pyro than pointed at Slapstick, who then gave a look at contempt and gestured at himself in surprise "Oh geez I'm ever so sorry for trying to get help from being gnawed on!".

Pyro responded picking up a teacup,"Oh please you're so colorful that the creature probably mistook you for a chew toy!"

Slapstick was so angry that the literal top of his head blew off, as a small mushroom explosion flew out of his open cranium,"Perhaps" his cranium cap fell back on his head with a "plop".

"You're right, perhaps I've got a few screws loose, and I perhaps misconstrued the situation" as he said "screws" he shook his head and a rattling sound was heard.

"Besides, this is no time for arguments!" Slapstick pulled out a birthday hat and strapped it upside-down so it rested on his chin "Its time for aaaaaaaa". Then Slapstick simply vanished.

Pyro looked around wondering where he had gone, When Slapstick suddenly leapt up from behind the mercenary scaring the crits outta him.

"VERY MERRY UNBIRTHDAY!, Too You!"He said pointing at Pyro, "Too Me?, Indeed" he continued pointing to himself, "A very Merry Un-birthday to you, and you too!" he said appearing by The Mad Hatter and March Hare and putting an arm over each of their shoulders.

"Theres no time to be complaining cuz the day is a'waning, And Unbirthdays are not to be wasted, Not to be squandered and procrastinated, No time to be waited, Let your thirst be sated!"

He grabbed three teapots, and juggled them spilling them in such a way that they landed in cups.

Firefly
Due to the fact that the squid didn't fully grasp the English language, infact she didn't seem to be preoccupied on this strangely labeled piece of cuisine that resembled candy. At this moment Firefly understood the cuisine desired to be ingested, who was she to deny it that? The squid grabbed one of the candies, removed it's wrapper and ate said candy. The kraken had been unleashed.

Scraps

Scraps continued to scratch the Bandersnatch's ear. At this point it had seated itself like a large dog and tilted its head, bringing up its pudgy right hind paw to itch at the spot where Scraps was scratching. Scraps removed her patchwork arm from the spot; the Bandersnatch, though placated, still had quite sharp claws on its hind paws.

"If anyone's the chew toy around here," Scraps said to Slapstick and Pyro as they began arguing, "it'd be me, so you two ought to quit your bickeration."

When Slapstick and Pyro returned to the Mad Hatter's festivities, Scraps went back to stroking the Bandersnatch's ear. It purred and lifted its leg, before shifting its huge, fuzzy head down to its hind leg and licking something down there.

The Mad Hatter and March hare stood up and backed away from the Bandersnatch. "Ah... um... perhaps it would be best to..." the Mad Hatter stammered.

"Yes, yes, all good things must come to an end, unfortunately," the March hare interjected, snatching the tea cups from Slapstick and leaving the tea pouring into thin air (albeit in the shape of the tea cups, though the March hare promptly swiped those as well).

Scraps pouted. "Aw, we were just starting to have fun," she complained, climbing on top of the Bandersnatch and tying the frizzled fur on its head into little twisted pigtails. The Bandersnatch licked a puddle of spilled tea as Scraps did this.

"Well, quite frankly, we ought not to have animals at the table," the March hare explained.

Scraps gave the hare a deadpan expression. The hare and the Hatter quickly dragged the tablecloth off the table and tied it in a knot, before nervously shouting, "Toodle-oo! Calooh! Callay! Have a wonderful unbirthday!" The two of them bolted.

Scraps cocked her head. "What's up with them? Seems like they've gone completely batty," she asked, raising her hand and gesturing towards the fleeing figures as she turned her head 180 degrees backwards to face Slapstick and Pyro. The Bandersnatch sniffed the ground.

The Toon sommersaulted over the table and rolled over to the large Bandersnatch "Gee I could'nt imaaagine why?" he commented before standing up, "Could be that they dint want to share their tea with this Snaderbatch, I suppose you could say sharing with a wild animal wasn't....Their cup of tea.

Slapstick did the fingergun gesture, grinning like a madman.

"Jokes aside, you look awfully familier" Slapstick's brow lowered in thought, "Weren't you at the Castle with that Swordswoman and anthropomorphized crane?"

"Anthropomorphized, just rolls of the tongue don't it?" he said to himself, "Slapstick(comma)The Amazing" he said introducing himself sticking out his large gloved hand.
"And I must say you've got guts-er well stuffing to stand up to a creature like that! "Especially considering the fact that you're made of tearable cloth."

Scraps

"Well I wouldn't call it a terrible cloth," Scraps said, taking Slapstick's hand, "as only Oz's finest patchwork would ever work for a girl such as I." Scraps looked up at Slapstick. "Scraps," she introduced. "And first of all, that was a lance, I believe, and second, yes I was. Cordelia and Lofty, they were. Nice folks. Lofty's a bit of a 'fraidy crane, but he's real nice."

Scraps shoved her hands in her pockets, then took one out and ruffled the side of the Bandersnatch's head. "Speaking of which, I wonder how they fare. I haven't run into either of them in this wacky Wonderland, nor have I crossed paths with that fat masked feller."

Cordelia

Naturally, the roaring of multiple Jabberwocky could be heard from quite a distance, and this sound quite disturbed Cordelia. "I presume that those are more of those Jabberwocky that the cards were talking about," Cordelia mused.

"Well, that was quite the game of croquet," the Queen of Hearts boomed.

Hardly anybody was left on the field.

"I say we retire to the castle for tea and tarts," she declared. "And that is an order! Anybody who disagrees... OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!"

The Queen then pointed at Cordelia, Ryle, and Dipin. "THAT MEANS YOU, TOO!"

Cordelia, compelled to exhibit utmost deference to the execution-happy queen (as she saw little threat in those remarks, if not slight annoyance at their frequency), pursed her lips and followed whoever had not been ordered to execution into the castle grounds.

Dark Meta Knight

SLASH.

Revenge.

HACK.

For sealing me.

SLICE.

For humiliating me.

Each green stalk, to Dark Meta Knight, was like the metaphorical necks of those insolent Star Warriors. Burning hatred flamed in Dark Meta Knight's sickly yellow eyes.

That blubbering, mallet-swinging royal...

He imagined the next daffodil to be the neck of the king Dedede as he brought his cold steel blade across its verdant flesh, instantly killing the flower. The daffodil let out a dying squeak.

For eons... my desire has boiled... but no one shall take that from me...

"ANY--LONGER--!"

Two successive slices and a pair of tulips succumbed to Dark Meta Knight's cruel sword.

The flowers were not stupid, shallow as they may be, and they whispered to each other of this terrible, dark plant-killing monster with sickly yellow eyes and a pale mask. (Those, in fact, were the only details that passed around the garden.)

Those two losers.

As to be expected Dipin and Ryle decided to follow the local royals into their castle, it seemed Ryle was not aware of how likely he was to end up beheaded. The hedgehog then whispered, "Calm down, your heads not leaving your neck any time soon. Anyway the weed whacker didn't feel right earlier so I'll be checking that out if you need me. Upon entering castle Dipin found himself a table, removed the plates from his shoes, put them in garden formation and popped the gardening tool open. Ryle simply gave a sigh of relieve and went to watch Dipin fix his, curious choice for A weapon.

"I'm Pyro!" added the mercenary, as he tumbled over the table. "He's Pyro" Slapstick repeated, than raised an eyebrow," So you've met Fat Guy too, interesting.........This must be a TEAM UP!", Slapstick's pupils turned into the shapes of stars as he thrust his fists into the air.

Pyro tentatively raised his hand to ask what that meant, when the Toon jumped onto his chest and grabbed handfuls of the Fire man's shirt,"ITS A TEAM UP!" he yelled before back flipping off of Pyro, and landing before wildly gesturing with his arms and body as he explained
"A team up is when several heroes of varying personalities and abilities, work together on a common quest or goal posed by a villain, or some sort of stopping some sort of antagonist oppressing or threatening the good and welfare of the innocent!"
He was silent for a few seconds before suddenly pointing at Pyro
"GOOD QUESTION PYRO!" he yelled.

"But I didn't say anyt-" Pyro began confused, When Slapstick interrupted him"Thats right! where do we go from here?!, Slapstick grinned and folded his arms behind his back,"We could go that way" he said pointing to his left with his left hand."Or that way". He said pointing to his right with his right hand, "Or this way!" he said as a third arm shot out from his torso, "Or there, Or there, Or there, Or there". He chimed more arms erupting out of his mass and pointing off in different directions, soon he looked to be a mass of pointing arms and he continued to say "Or that way!"

"Or we could go in the direction of the horrible screaming and pillar of hellfire, or get a bite to eat!"

Pyro raised his hand again as Slapstick made himself normal again "No Pyro we are not going to the horrible pillar of Hellflame, and demonic screaming". The clown responded.

As Pyro hung his head in disappointment, Slapstick pointed to a purple path on the ground"I say we follow the path!, Any objections?"

Scraps

"Well," Scraps said, pausing with her hand on the Bandersnatch's fuzzy cheek (at this point the animal had settled on the floor, its eyes fluttering as it yawned), "the purple path seems about as good as any. I mean, look at all these different paths in the wood, any of them could lead anywhere. Ah..." Scraps paused as she glanced at a row of signs nailed to a tree, "except Oz. And likely anywhere we happen to have come from."

Scraps then untied her patchwork apron from her waist, and swept the tea-crackers and sugar bowls into it. She soaked a few crackers in tea and threw those into empty tins, and took some of the jams, butter, and mustard for good measure. "Travel food," she explained, examining a jar of jam. "They left it behind, and I don't know if they'll bring it back. Highly doubt they'll miss it; they would abandon full cups of tea, anyway." Scraps tapped a half-cup of tea hanging in the glass like the flesh of a cut apple. As soon as she did, the tea collapsed and spilled on the table. "Whoops," Scraps said.

She took the sugar not for herself, but in case she ran into that nice little girl and the big fellow in the diving suit again. Little girls like sugar, Scraps knew that for a fact (she was one herself, after all, though she rather preferred the idea of sweets over eating them due to her fluffy, fabricky constitution).

Scraps slung her makeshift sack over her shoulder and climbed onto the folds of the stout Bandersnatch's body' using them to hop aboard the animal's back. To re-entice the creature, Scraps waved a tea-cracker in front of its snout, climbing onto its neck and craning her arm over its forehead. The Bandersnatch's sickly blue eyes turned upwards toward the cracker, and its tongue slurped up to reach for it.

Scraps's legs comically stuck out, splayed across the powerful creature's shoulders, as she dug one glove into her cheek and waved the cracker with the other. "I think this feller's willing to speed the trip a bit. A little food goes a long way, huh?"

Cordelia

Cordelia traveled down the corridors of Heart Castle; the arches, edifices, rafters, and other details shared a heart motif, though the entire place was quite crooked. Red, white, brown (from the wood), and gray (from the non-marble stone) were the common colors, and cards marched up and down the corridors. Why? Because it looked quite formal-looking.

They sized up Cordelia, Ryle, and Dipin as they walked down the corridor. Cordelia sized them up right back; perhaps they would be willing to spar.

Two of the cards, a 7 of Hearts and a 9 of Clubs, approached Dipin as he took out the weed whacker. "I take it you're the new gardener," the 9 said gruffly. "The last three gardeners were sentenced for planting white roses, and now there isn't anyone to weed the roses. Weeds are nasty things, they are..."

Fat Guy

"Well, I never!" Fat Guy grumbled. "I am certainly not a turnip! Nor am I a radish or a beet, and certainly not a weed!"

Fat Guy steamed. "And I draw the line at the onion!" he huffed. "Let 'em eat pesticide, I say! When does the lawnmower roll around here, anyway?!" He kicked a pebble along the dirt path and mumbled to himself. "I miss those other folks. The ragdoll kid, the crane, and good ol' Slapstick, the Amazing..."

Fat Guy stopped when he saw a dark gray shape blur by. It sent a shudder through his obese body for some reason. "Uuuhhhh..." Fat Guy moaned, "foreshadowing..."

Fat Guy then spotted a grove of giant mushrooms. "Finally, some familiarity!" Fat Guy sighed, rolling his eyes. "Mushrooms! Those are everywhere where I come from--"

Fat Guy tripped over the stalk of a dead petunia. He felt a deathly chill down his spine. For though it was a flower, and for though the flowers were quite rude and superficial, they were, well, alive and conscious organisms, and to see the corpse of one like that...

Pulsating, writhing, slithering the mass of pure hunger rolled over the fields of Camalot it grew fat on the flesh and blood of those consumed, anything inedible or unorganic was ejected from its matter, armor, arrows, armored-arrows, it was left behind.
It swept past the now abandoned village, eating livestock and oozing through the cracks of the houses where it consumed the villagers that had hidden away from the Heartless, Pity how they escaped one horror only to be destroyed by another, hungrier horror.
It now quite a lot larger it oozed towards the castle unable to cross for now due to the drawbridge being pulled up.

As the Squid kid gigantified, The Big Daddy gave a nervous moan, it knew perhaps from personal experience that giant squids were quite dangerous, and turned to grab Little Sister, only to see her shove a "EAT ME!" candy in her mouth, she arched an eyebrow in questioning as the Big Daddy's lights flickered to a nervous color,"Wat" she mumbled crumbs falling from her mouth.
She rocketed into a tremendous titan taller than the now tinyer titatn Big Daddy, she towered over the now teeny tiny diverman by several miles, The Not-so-Little Sister smiled revealing her pearly whites as she stooped down "YOU'RE SO LITTLE NOW MISTER BUBBLES!" she giggled before reaching down and attempting to grab the Rapturian as if he was a little toy.
An animalistic fear took hold of the drill handed creature, a fear of a large predator coming to get it and that fear for a split second overrode his need to protect the Little Sister.

"AWWWWWOGGHHH!" He screamed and gave a warning swipe with his drill arm, unfortunately he miscalculated and ended up giving her a small cut of her outstretched fingers.
She stumbled back causing the ground to shake, she stared with sadness and disbelief at her guardian, and then started to bawl, rivers of bright glowing tears drenched with ADAM flowed down her face, splashing onto the ground like a dangerous energy-infused flood.
The Big Daddy struggled to stay above the rising liquid as the Doorknob attempted to give reassuring words in a vain attempt to calm the girl down.
But soon the liquid was like a sea and the Doorknob desperatly tried to get some of the liquid out by opening his keyhole mouth.
Big Daddy made the draining easier as he whirred his drill and smashed through the door, and surrounding wall.
Massive amounts of ADAM infused tears flowed out into Wonderland drowning any plantlife and Fat mask wearing men.
The Big Daddy could be seen struggling to get above as an occasional hand broke the surface, followed by distressed muffled groaning.
But soon the Rapturian was able to wade towards a "shore" and onto land, where much to his disbelief and worry he found his Little Sister laying limp on the sand, he charged over to the prone form and picked her up administering(the best he could) CPR he did his by using his rather large fingers to push the water out of her chest.
The Little Sister hacked as threw up some of the water as her eyes fluttered open
"You saved me Mister Bubbles" she said before hacking some more.

Fat Guy

Rumbling.

"Oh, good grief, that doesn't sound good," Fat Guy mumbled.

The rumbling got heavier and heavier; Fat Guy decided it was in his best interest to get to higher groooOoooOoOoOOOOH GOD A TIDAL WAVE!!!!

Fat Guy scrambled up the stalk of a sturdy-looking flower. "Get off me, beet!" the flower screeched.

Fat Guy wrapped his stubby arms around the giant stalk, then squeezed his eyes shut (this showed on his mask).

FPWOOOSSSHHHHHBBTHTHHGHGHFNHGVBNGKTKSKHGHGHDOFKJVJFJSJDB GJCKDKSHUZ!!! (Because that's totally how flash floods sound when they hit.)

Fat Guy opened one eye, and found that the ground was completely drenched in salt water. Many of the lower-ground flowers made dying screams as their roots choked on the salty, ADAM-infused tears.

Plants already have stem cells, so the ADAM did little to alter most of their cellular composition, but saline water is terribly unhealthy for plants anyway.

(At least, in human eyes, the changes were inconsequential, but the ADAM would cause increased leafing and flowering in the flowers at the cost of their consciousness. Mostly because they were dying. From salt water. At least it wasn't Audrey II.)

Fat Guy slid down the stalk and landed in the soggy soil, his shoes sinking a bit in the mud. "Yeegh," Fat Guy grimaced, lifting one foot. "Well, this garden's spoiled forever."

The other flowers lucky enough to be untouched by the flood talked amongst themselves. Fat Guy, however, was quite disinterested in their idle chat, though they did talk about death and sinister shapes that cut plants and salty floods and oh, it was just such an unpleasant conversation. Fat Guy decided he would walk over to the mushrooms, and so set off towards them.

Lofty

Lofty idled next to a human-faced caterpillar, staring at the words that floated from the mouth of the caterpillar's hookah.

"WHO" "ARE" "YOU"

Lofty then turned to the Caterpillar, and said nervously, "My name is Lofty."

Caterpillar eyed the crane; either it was a very large caterpillar or Lofty was a quite small crane. But what is size in Wonderland?

Caterpillar puffed on his hookah. "It seems that you've been pulled here by some invisible cosmic force," the Caterpillar observed.

"What do you mean?" Lofty asked.

"Someone has designs with you, I believe. Not on you, I can say, but you seem like the important type... In a cosmic sense."

Lofty was confused. Perhaps this would all be cleared up sooner or later. "Bob was always clear about what we would do," Lofty mumbled. "I miss him. I feel like I'm in terrible danger here..."

Lorry's thoughts broke when Fat Guy burst onto the scene. "Oh my goodness! Lofty!"

Fat Guy tackled the crane in the hood, splaying his arms over him and pressing his fat cheek on the windshield. "You have no idea how much I've needed a familiar face, even one familiar after just a day! There's sinister shadows and sarcastic flowers and--"

Lofty was not pleased to hear this. His bumper quivered. Fat Guy realized Lofty's distress and shut up. A couple moments of silence.

"Soooooo," Fat Guy said, "how are you?"

"Can't make head or tail of what this caterpillar is saying," Lofty replied. "I don't understand. He talked about an invisible force..."

Fat Guy ruminated on this for a bit, then said, "Nah, I got nothin'. I'm not one for thinking about the mysteries of the universe, or, rather, what appears to be the multiverse. I'm a simple guy, you know? I've got friends, food. Family. I never had much need to worry about much else. Even when the dinosaur trekked through Lakitu's Wall (for that is where I live), I had little to worry about; I would be eaten, then thrown, then deposited somewhere else. It's quite a hike to get back to the neighborhood, but I enjoy the walk..."

Fat Guy turned to Lofty. "I'm sorry, I'm rambling. Thinking about home makes me feel a little better, you know? Especially with creepy shadowy things flitting to and fro between the flowers."

Lofty shook his cab. "It's fine. I actually would love to chat about our lives; after all, it seems like we'll be seeing each other more often. I'm a multi-purpose crane, you see..."

Meanwhile...

There would be no racing in the sea now. For a sea made of ADAM tears... is quite dangerous, indeed.

Perhaps these things were animals, at least moments before the ADAM seas rose, but the stem cell alteration has transfigured them into something else.

Out of the sea waddled a half-dodo bird, half-jackrabbit... Literally, it was a beast that was a dodo and a rabbit fused together by the volatile stem cells. Having assimilated some of the other animal matter into its body, it had lost its consciousness and grown larger than either of its base animals ever should have.

This monster screeched and clawed its way towards Little Sister and Big Daddy, one thing on its mind: FOOD.

Maleficent

LOCATION: Camelot

This world has fallen to the Heartless. The Keyhole has been consumed, and soon Camelot will crumble into darkness.

But Maleficent sensed something, a primal, destructive, hungry force that thought of nothing but consumption, a literal blob of death. It was a power beyond her control, and served of no use to her.

Through a Corridor of Darkness, she disappeared; strangely, Sir Gawain was nowhere to be found. Had he not been transformed into a Heartless as well? Maleficent dismissed the thought of Gawain; there were other worlds to conquer.

Dipin

"Nope, just happen I just happen to like using gardening tools in unconventional ways." Dipin replied before he pulled the goggles from around his neck over his eyes. The hedgehog then pried the casing off of the gardening tool as a pillar of smoke escaped the device. Inside there was a variety of gears, wires, electromagnets and vacuum tubes along with a small set of tools. Dipin then, removed several broken components. He then looked at one of the cards, pointed to the inside of the device and components on the table abs asked, "Do you got a box of scraps laying around somewhere, I can use?"

Slapstick,n Pyro
"Well it would be nice to get there ahead of time, I'd be good not to be whats the word?" Slapstick snapped his fingers trying to think of the word, when a rabbit rushed by carrying a large golden watch on a chain,"I'm late! I'm late!  "For a very important date.  "No time to say "Hello, Goodbye".  I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!"
With that the White Rabbit scurried into the forest going on whatever event he was ever so late for.

Slapstick, Closed his eyes and snapped his fingers again"The word its on the tip of my tongue." "Tardy?, No that doesn't fit" Slapstick shrugged "Aw well, It'll come to me sometime.",seeing what Scraps was doing with the tea cracker Slapstick decided to help.

Taking out a long string and a stick his hands comically blurred as he made....a bow, Slapstick face scrunched in confusion"Wait no that's not right" his hands blurred again as he made...a dream-catcher,"What no!, darn it." his hands blurred again as he made...a paddleball, "WAT", he mumbled, clearly confused about the logic of what he just did, before blurring his hands once more and creating what he intended to make in the beginning, a makeshift fishing pole type thing.

"Whats that?" questioned Pyro

"Its a Makeshift fishing pole type thing Pyro, it was just stated like three lines above you." Slapstick said rolling his eyes.

"What?" Pyro asked very confused.
"What?" Slapstick responded having apparently no clue what he had previously said.

He walked over to Scraps and tied the cracker to the string and then handed the Patchwork girl the pole.

He then carefully lowered himself onto the Bandersnatch's back so he was seated behind Scraps, Pyro too clambered on seating himself behind Slapstick.

Slapstick raised his hand in triumph "ONWARD TO ADVENTURE!, or doom depending on what we face...."

Bioshock Buddies

Big Daddy turned just in time to be bitten by the monstrosity, the Titian groaned in pain as an amalgamation of a sharp beak and jagged fangs pierced its shoulder, The Little Sister fell to the ground and quickly scurried behind her guardian.

Big Daddy curled his fingers into a fist and sent the monster sprawling, but it rose seemingly undeterred by the strike, its massive form twitched as the dangerous energy followed through its hybrid body, the only sign of the civility it once held being a torn up sleeve of a shirt on its left forelimb, It hissed and charged at the Rapturian.

"There are meals to be had!". it gibbered in a barely legible grunt, leftover memories surfacing only to be blotted back out. As it neared Big Daddy lowered his Drill and smashed the creature's legs out from under it, as fell to the ground Big Daddy's lights turned red as the drill began to spin.

But the creature had strong forelegs(being half jackrabbit and all) and kicked at the Underseaman, causing him to stumble back.

Scraps

Scraps got the memo and clipped a tea-soaked cracker onto the hook of the fishing pole, before dangling it over the Bandersnatch's snout. The Bandersnatch's eyes crossed as it stuck out is tongue to lick at the cracker, which jittered about in front of its nose as it reached and reached.

Despite all of this effort, the cracker didn't budge. Neither did the Bandersnatch's three passengers. After several minutes of consternation, Scraps reeled the fishing pole back in and handed it back to Slapstick. "I appreciate the effort, but it doesn't seem particularly efficacious," the patchwork girl reported.

She then leaned over the Bandersnatch's brow and flicked her index finger at the purple path.

Believe it or not, the Bandersnatch bounded in that direction (so quickly, in fact, that it nearly bucked Scraps into Slapstick from the stubborn effects of the property of inertia). The animal's thick paws pounded into the ground as the trees of the tulgey wood blurred by. Scraps thought she heard some awfully beast-y noises coming from far away in the wood, but thought little of it, exhilarated by the speed of the powerful, frumious Bandersnatch despite its stocky frame.

But as the Bandersnatch, in its sojourn through the wood along the purple path, approached the flower fields where those pretentious plants had abused Fat Guy before... well, there was a surprising lack of plant life.

Also, what is a proportions in Wonderland? Suddenly the flowers (at least what was left of them) were much, much larger than any flower Scraps had ever seen in her entire life. At this point, the ADAM-tears had all drained into the soil, so the soil was only slightly damp...

9 of Clubs

The two cards glanced at each other, then back at Dipin. "Hm. But we are in need of a new gardener. As in, desperately. The queen wanted her decks to fix up her roses quickly, but all of the other applicants are afraid of getting their heads cut off. Of course, nobody's head actually gets cut off, but the way the Queen of Hearts screams is quite simply terrifying..."

The 7 of Hearts brightened up. "I've got an idea! If you help us with the gardening, we'll pay you handsomely and throw in the box of spare parts that you need."

The 9 smiled. "That is a splendid idea... though there are quite a few rose bushes out there, and I'm unsure of how quickly he can do the job before the deadline..."

"She wants the rose bushes replaced at the end of the week! Rose bushes don't grow that quickly!" the 7 fumed. He turned back to Dipin. "Can you at least remove the white roses (that haven't been painted red, she'll never notice)?" he asked.

ACCEPT QUEST? Y/N

JACKDODO BATTLE

The monster lunged at Big Daddy, eyeing his drill with a deranged stare, yet still pawing at Big Daddy's diving suit with a deformed mixture of a claw and a wing. The twitching amalgam was about the size of a van, and hit like one, too.

With a furious peck with its stone-hard beak-jaw, the hungry beast attempted to rip Big Daddy's head off, opening its arms wide in order to strike.

Kitchen Pals

"Aspic, White Sauce, Cream and Bread.
Plain-looking foods are all you need to be fed!"

"I heard about a toon, hungry from a fray.
They chose to have a turkey leg on their tray!"

"No doubt they'll end up teary-eyed.
Turkey legs make you sad inside."


"I know someone worse than that.
Masked and hooded, wrapped in fat."

"Pitiful. And as for their diet?"

"You'll know; they make no effort keep it quiet."

"There was a mercenary- and goodness me!
They decided to fill themselves up with tea!"

"Well, you know what they say.
Drinking tea makes your teeth go gray!"


"Turkey? Tea? This simply won't do!
No doubt everyone needs a lesson or two."

WX-78

The sun risen, illuminating the luscious green grove. The songs of birds resonated gracefully in the air, and pleasant scents enchanted the grassland. Butterflies and insects fluttered amidst the flowers, crawling, flying, pollinating. The sky was decorated with ivory clouds and sunshine, and a gentle wind blew.

The distant clattering of metal feet intensified.

A redbird descended and perched upon the grass, feasting on scattered seeds. It hopped with elegance, pursuing the trail. Two spindly arms spontaneously erupted from the bush opposite, seizing the unfortunate creature. The serenity of the natural world was hastily reduced to the violent squawking and quarrel of animals, paws and wings fleeting. The vice-like grip of the appendages strengthened, their prey screeching in anguish.

When the bird had perished and its brethren fled, WX-78 heaved its robotic complex out from its camouflage. It observed its handiwork with an expression of joy, a rarity for the sinister contraption. A mass of pristine flesh, entrails and feathers laid lifelessly, idly seeping vital fluid.

"I HAVE KILLED IT." WX-78 announced bluntly. "GOOD."

WX-78 deposited the mushy remains of its adversary in its storage compartment, prowling onward. It surveyed the green plains vigilantly, scavenging for valuable resources. It continuously plucked and shred away at the natural world with an absence of consideration, sparing anything that occurred to be of vague importance. It was routine for WX-78 to harvest for survivalistic goods- the harsh demands of the realm it dwelled within were not to be underestimated.

Eventually, WX-78 was sated, yet another uncommon occurrence for the robot. Upon having reached noon, it had harvested all manner of supply, varying from foods to craft materials. WX-78 sealed these assets away alongside its feathery residue.

A devious thought then came across WX-78.

WX-78 surreptitiously roamed, cautious not to alert creatures of its presence. It positioned itself accordingly at the edge of a field. Said field bore burrows scattered abundantly, from which had emerged grazing rabbits. WX-78 produced a stick and subsequently an intimidating stone with sharp edges. WX-78 bound the two together, forming a crude hatchet. WX-78's face contorted into a pleased state as it studied the weapon.

WX-78 gripped its bludgeon and retrieved a carrot. It deposited the vegetable in proximity to itself, hiding away and anticipating its prey. As expected, the small animals approached nervously. A singularly eager rabbit directly hopped towards the deception.

WX-78 promptly responded by unveiling itself and thrusting its hatchet at the specimen. It awaited the anguished call of the creature. No sound. No collision. Nothing. WX-78 felt its grip loosening and its storage module becoming lighter. Its surroundings faded.

Slapstick seeing where they were decided to ask for directions, "HOLD UP!" he shouted causing the Bandersnatch to screech to a stop, "Hold on, it suddenly occurred to me we have absolutely no idea where we're going and that could in theory, present a problem". Slapstick crawled off of the Bandersnatch who lazily laid down seeing how it was not needed at the moment.

The Toon called out to the plants, "Um hello? "We're a assorted group of travelers without a destination and I was wondering if you could point us to say I dunno a location of possible interest?"

"You haven't a clue where to go?", arose the voice of a Rose,"You require a path to peruse?" Trilled the Tulips. as they leaned forward on their stalks to get a better look at the clown, "You need a location to look for?" Larked the Lilies out from the shades of the large grasses.

"In not so much of an alliterative sense". "Yes". Slapstick responded

"There's always the Queen's courtyard and castle" started the rose and was continued by the Lilies, "Its somewhat enjoyable but kinda a hassle",

"Not that we'd know from personal facts, we only have roots not feet to make tracks" spoke a few Daisys that had grown on the ground him.

"Which way?" Slapstick responded,

A large Tiger-Lily(that actually resembled a Tiger) leaned over to Slapstick observing what it thought to be an odd new plant, "There are many ways near and not, though past the Liliac's is the path that leads the least".

"Okay thanks now one more question, "What are the Lilacs?" Slapstick asked.

The Rose sneered at that question,"Quite a dull little plant, doesn't know what Lilac's are!"

The Violet laughed at that"And such bad placement of that purple how gaudy!", The flower accentuated her rudeness by pulling a tuft of the clown's hair.

"And look at his friend that fat tomato!" The Blue Bonnets commented as they gave a once over on Pyro who had gotten off and was playing with a CATerpillar.

The flowers wrinkled their faces as they sniffed the Merc,"Such an unpleasant fragrance like blood and ash!"

"And this one!", The Sunflowers reached over and rudely, lifted Scraps limbs without her permission inspecting her like some piece of cloth , "Such dull colors!, and flimsy petals such a pathetic we-"

"ENOUGH!" Slapstick yelled causing the plants to recoil in shock"You all are being rude, snoody and a bunch of other words I'm not going to say because there is a child present!,

Slapstick went over and glared at the sunflowers causing them to retreat away from him, "C'mon Pyro we're going!"

The clown looked over to see Pyro, who had both of his arms spayed out in a sort of a "t" shape allowing the small feline-bug hybrid to crawl from arm across his head to the other arm, "Pyro put that back" Slapstick said mounting himself on the Bandersnatch, Pyro shook his head and picked up the CATipillar snuggling it in a hug.

"Pyro you can't bring that with us what if we encounter some sort of monster?" Reasoned the clown

Pyro didn't even hesitate "Burn it".

Slapstick rolled his eyes "What if we encounter a bridge and we need a select amount of weight and that thing overweigh and we die?"

Pyro looked up "Is the bridge made of wood?"

Slapstick raised an eyebrow" Um yes."
"Than I would burn that too" Pyro went back to petting the kitten.

"What if something nonflammable puts the cat in danger!" Slapstick pointed out clearly losing his patience.

Pyro placed the cat on his head, took out a weapon and very simply said "Ax".
The Toon sighed, "Fine but you have to feed it".

Pyro did a small "Yay" and climbed onto the Bandersnatch.

Slapstick clicked his heels on the side of the creature like a horse and the sleepy creature clambered off and wandered towards the Liliacs, as they began to leave the plants began to whisper comments again.

Unseen by the troupe , twin Daffodils shared a mischievous look, as they grasped a large leaf full of water, and tilted it over the group.

A large ammount of water, about as much as a large bathtub splashed down on the Clown, Doll, Arsonist, and Wonderland predator.

It absolutely drenched the party, soaking them to the bone(except Scraps, she had none), it was so bad that Pyro's little hybrid pet ran away.

Deep inside Slapstick's head a tiny little vein made a very audible "SNAP!"

Brushing his purple hair from his face revealed that his eyes had grown to the size of dinner plates and his pupils had turned into pitch black skulls and crossbones.

Slapstick rocketed off on the Bandersnatch smashing back into the ground by the flowers.

"ITS NOT FUNNY TO MOCK HOW PEOPLE LOOK!"

He gave a withering stare at the very surprised and scared look, "You know I was willing to be the bigger organism and ignore all this!" But I sure ain't some Little English schoolgirl with a freaken bow and blue dress who you can just ridicule!"
Slapstick reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of comically large garden shears, the metal gleamed as many of the plants gave cries of fear.


But you know I think you just earned yourself a lesson in modesty!, And lucky for you" Slapstick grinned "I have a PHD in cartoon violence!"

Slapstick jumped upon the plants slicing off their colorful petals, and dashing to the next one.

Pretty soon he was done with his Slash 'n Dash, and all of the once colorful Flowers had been trimmed of their "beauty" and they resembled green weeds they wailed and curse at the clown as he went merrily marching back to his mount, their petals would grow back of course, but perhaps by the time they were back to normal they would have learned to be a little more polite.

Slapstick had collected the petals and ha fashioned them into a swim cap, and as he walked back towards The Bandersnatch he tossed it at Pyro, "Sorry bout the cat have a hat!",

He hopped back on the Wonderland creature, "So who wants to go to another castle?"

Cash? Money? A box of scraps, in a cave!? The hedgehog couldn't turn down easy gardening work for pay, I mean hedge is part of his name. Dipin replied "Deal", as he closed up the weed whacker.

Scraps

"Put me down, you pompous, pernicious prigs!" Scraps shouted as a sunflower rudely plucked her off the ground.

They did, and as Slapstick raved at the flowers, Scraps dusted off her apron and returned to the Bandersnatch. The Bandersnatch arched it's back and growled at the flowers. The flowers in Oz weren't half as arrogant as these Wonderlandian weeds.

So when Scraps felt the water descend upon her party, she nearly exploded, had Slapstick not exploded for her.

Normally, Scraps would have been happy with the comeuppance, but the flowers seemed quite horrified at having their petals clipped. More so than they normally would, that is.

"Pale... faced... yellow-eyed... plant-slicer..." stammered some of the other flowers.

"THE PLANT SLICER IS HERE!!!" they screamed, wailing into the air. Some dialed on phones and called the royal guard. They weren't quiet about it, either. "GET THE ROYAL GUARD! THE PLANT SLICER HAS RETURNED!"

"Uh-oh," Scraps gulped.

Inhumanly quickly, a deck of card soldiers had Scraps, Slapstick, Pyro, and the Bandersnatch surrounded. The Bandersnatch was quickly cuffed and muzzled before it could react, and two of the card soldiers quickly disarmed the Pyro. Scraps attempted to run off, but a card soldier grabbed her by the pigtails. "Watch it! Those are delicate!" she hollered.

And five card soldiers grabbed Slapstick without giving him time to react, before throwing him into a cage that was far too tight for him. "Keep an eye on this one," said one of the card soldiers. "He needs to be locked up until his trial."

"What about the others?"

"They are witnesses. They must be saved for the trial as well."

"And the Bandersnatch?"

"We will take care of that later."

Our heroes were carted off to the Court of Hearts, to await trial. Although, it just so happens that a second trial was to be had soon for another unfortunate soul.

Cordelia

Cordelia heard a muffled shouting. "WHERE ARE MY TARTS?!"

Startled, Cordelia hurried down the hallway towards the source of the noise and peeked through a doorway on the right wall. An overturned silver platter had fallen on the ground, spilling crumbs everywhere. The Queen of Hearts was ranting and raving, beet-red in the face with a scrunched-up expression.

"THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!" the Queen roared. "Who dares to pilfer the tarts of the Queen of Hearts?!"

The card soldiers surrounding her backed away; nobody liked a pissed Queen of Hearts, that's for sure. She gets quite execution-y when she's pissed.

"Bring me the Royal Inquisitor!" the Queen of Hearts boomed.

The Royal Inquisitor charged into the room, his stubby legs flailing under his body and scooting him across the hall. "Your Highness, I believe that there has been a break!"

"Of course not! The plate is there, all in one piece!" barked the Queen.

"My apologies, Your Majesty," the squatty Inquisitor said with an extravagant bow. "However, I do believe that we have a lead on the case of your tarts."

"Impossible! The case of my tarts has been empty for the longest time. This was the latest batch!" The queen gestured vehemently at the platter on the ground. "I need answers! Answers to the question: WHO TOOK THE TARTS?!!!"

"I have an incriminating statement!" the Inquisitor finally said, pulling out a piece of paper. A poem, to be exact. The Queen snatched it out of his hands, then grew even redder, even more furious. The Inquisitor swiped the paper before the Queen could destroy it.

"BRING ME THE KNAVE OF HEARTS! It is time for his trial!" the Queen bellowed. She dashed into the hallway, then pointed at the 7, Cordelia, and Ryle, declaring them to be witnesses and demanding their presence at court.

Cordelia was quite taken aback by this, but the Queen looked quite pissed, and Cordelia did not want to cross her at this point.

Luckily, the metal cage though bent a bit protected the Big Daddy from decapitation at the jaws of the monstrosity, with a rapturian roar, he smashed his unspinning drill into the chest of the hybrid.

With the sound of snapping bones the Jackidoo lurched back back, when the Rapturian hit him again bringing the drill like a club into the BirdHare's face,

"CRUNCH!" The Hybrid warbled spastically blood flowed from its broken maw, then Big Daddy grabbed the creature's left arm and brought the drill down breaking its arm.
