-Plots To Tickle The Muse-(Always open to cross overs as well.. Maybe?)A Grim Take On Alice In Wonderland (Craving!)
(Because Alice will always be my favourite )
(My take on Alice has her at the point of her early twenties (youngest 19). This variation of her is a mixture between her classic character and the Alice perceived from the 'Alice' games.)

Mostly inspired by a bit of 'Grim Fairy-Tales' and the 'Mcgee series' of everything Wonderland related, I'd absolutely love to play Alice in a twisted Wonderland. The plot itself is up for discussion and who I might play against is also open to possibility. If there's anyone out there who might be interested in being my writing partner for this, I'd be all for suggestive ideas. It might be nice to do a bit of an exploration feel to this game as well, with small bits of Gming involved where apporiate. I'd be willing to contribute a large part to that. So for anyone looking for an adult spin on the old fairy tale, I'd be all ears for something like, or related to that. Whether we tackle an entirely new 'Alice', a more mature one who's made some interesting process since her last adventure in Wonderland, or simply collaborate on something entirely different, I'd be all for suggestions!
Alternatively me playing a descent of 'Alice' is an interesting direction if we'd like to recreate and adjust Wonderland to the subject of a more mature or twisted, or even both, sort of environment!
Further information on what my 'Alice' looks like can be peaked into over at my posting samples.
[♥]"Random Pairings I'm Craving For 'Alice'"
This plot is virtually a rewrite of another Alice In Wonderland based plot I wrote up sometime ago. The new write up is mostly unchanged from that of it's older, original plot. However, there have been several changes made to said plot. My perception with the plot has remained mostly unchanged, though has a slight shift in focus, more so on psychological adventure and horror. I am looking primarily for a dark variation of the original storie(s). Ideally, I'd like to explore a darker take within taking part in this plot (as Alice). Anything else is entirely up for debate.
The plot follows an older Alice, one who's become of young adult age. The exact age is debatable, but I'd prefer to make nineteen the absolute youngest as far as youth might go. A bit older then nineteen is also in fairness to the game. Despite Alice's exact age and her maturity, she is still naive as she'll ever be, always remaining to be the Alice she was, or at least partial to that character, with only a handful of new much more brooding adjustments.
Alice has been to Wonderland once before. Only several years later, she's seemed to forgotten that entirely. Since Alice's first adventure(s) in Wonderland, the young woman has been through quite the number of unfortunate circumstances. Things seemed fine at first, there wasn't a single thing wrong with the young girls life, up until the fire to send her her life plummeting into sorrowful oblivion. Alice never understood why the fire took place or even how, but she eerily feels responsible for it to some degree and twice more responsible for the loss of her family. Whatever the truth behind the fire, Alice's mental state has slowly been degrading with the compiling weight of her own grief. Grieve has turned into depression, among some other nasty things that have bloomed within the qualities of the modern Alice, that have proven quite malevolent.
After the accident that took her family Alice was institutionalized due to her decline in depressive volatile mentality. She not only became depressed, but sometimes violent as well. Of course she didn't mean to be these cruel to others, but she couldn't help herself. Deep down inside she knew that something was eating away at her. If only she could discover what that was? Remember anything before the fire at all? But that image of of fiery disaster had become the only thing replaying time and time again in her mind, so much so that flood of grief began to contain her precious Wonderland and become a conduit to that bleak insanity and dreadful madness. However, that much she had missed of course. For the circumstance of Alice's own devastation from the fire actually caused her to enter a recession of memory lost, due to the traumatic events she endured. Though her memory hasn't been lost entirely, she doesn't seem to quite remember Wonderland, but the strange thing is that it oddly remembers her.
It all started one restless night. Alice kept having those dreams again, those scary dreams of weird places, with strange characters and obscurities that just couldn't be, that shouldn't be, but only were. Surely those dreams wouldn't have seemed so bad, if it wasn't for the fact that place she saw, wasn't spoiled with such uncanny dreamlike gloom and darkness. Trying to repress the dreams only made them worse. She told the doctors about them, but the doctors didn't seem to take her dreams quite so seriously. The only wanted Alice to get better away from the idea of far-fetched dimensions where nonsense seemed to embody such a place like a spirit, or essence. That made Alice very upset. Scared, suffering from memory loss, depression and grief, Alice's dreams worsened, until slowly she found herself unable to escape their reoccurring manifestation. This persisted as it worsened over time. The doctors and nurses started treating Alice more carefully, using drugs or restraint to try and prevent her nonsensical babbling about the nightmares from continuing. That was until one night, Alice found herself not only seeing this odd dark place known as 'Wonderland', but found herself surrounded by it.. The door to her cell had been left open? A rabbit had guided her out and where it had taken her, she could not explain, even if she wished for explanation to be the only thing she might request. Alice was led to a place, that place in her dreams, that place she did not remember, but oh did it remember her? And much has changed since her last visit..
Other details: The main idea for this plot is to re-explore Wonderland through the visitation of an older Alice, one suffering from grief and dismay. Wonderland has changed because Alice changed and Wonderland will always be a reflection of her own mind. Only now the conjure of that fantastical place has become something much more dark, this land barren, shambled and a realm of desolate nightmare – the creatures within, disgruntled guests looking for more then just the mischief a prodigal protagonist, unknowing of her own protagonist qualities. My aim is to write as Alice as she explores Wonderland and learns that the secrets of retrieving her lost memory and answer to her tragedy, may also be hidden within. However, understanding these things will prove to set her on quite the unusual journey through various trials and dangers, with an assortment of curious yet, cynical and twisted relationships..
Further brainstorming for this plot is always negotiable.

[♥]"Other Twisted Fairy Tale Idea's” [Fandom?, Darker themes, Adventure, Fantasy, A bit of horror, Cinderella?, open to discussion]
A while ago I ran a group game that had a short run. The game itself was sort of a take on an original 'Fabletown' (if you're familiar with the comics) and a 'Once Upon A Time' sort of game. The concept of this town followed the lives of 'Mysts' (fairy tale folk) who existed in a more modern-esc world. Everything about their town was not alike that of our own real world, but with a touch of fairy tale minded characteristics that made things blend majestically into a more fantasy modern, sort of universe. The core themes of the game dealt with drama, crime and everything that fell in between as the civil pillars of Fablegrove ultimately fought for power through a more pragmatic and political approach which led to conflicts within the town among the lives of other Mysts and who they were in the modern present of the game. Scandal, love, heartbreak, crime, drama, are all things that made Fablegrove the best of what it was.
I'd be looking to revisit this world with anyone who might be interested in doing so. Originally I played Alice (obviously from Wonderland) in the first Fablegrove and I wouldn't mind doing it again. However, given that this is an entire town of various Mysts, from all kinds of different fairy tales, I wouldn't be against playing more characters as NPC's or supporting characters as well for wherever they might fit. Finding a plot hook to sort of sprout a game between myself and another writer shouldn't prove to hard, if there is anyone out there who might be interested in playing in this kind of world. I'd be happy to guide them into the fundamentals of the game and as always, my horizons are certainly open for interesting ideas of your own, or input you might have.
A few random plot hooks could be..
- Your Myst (whoever they may be) becomes witness to something that he or she was not meant to see. Something terrible has happened in Fablegrove and only your Myst and my own know anything about the truth behind this terrible deed, but that puts them boths in equal danger.
- In the beginning everyone thought all Mysts in Fablegrove popped up after the cataclysm (the event that made fablegrove and brought all Mysts together into one society) only that's not the case. Your character is someone who has been somewhat of late arrival into the world, which begs to suggest that the possibility of even going back to fairy tale lands might exist. Your character stumbles into this new world unsure of where or why they are there. They feel alone, until they meet my own character. My character is someone who seems quite expected to sort of take their hand and be their guide, but is there more to my characters intentions then what appears? For Fablegrove is a strange and cynical place controlled by those who like to pull the strings of others to obtain their own ideals.
- Your character is new to Fablegrove, or is suffering from some crisis within their life in the town. If the life crisis angle is taken, your character is a member of the better society that exists in Fablegrove (known as The Camelot Court). They are among the wealthier Mysts and have not ventured far into the more shambled lower class district of Fablegrove. That is until one night they decide that they need something more then the practicalities of their routined and miserable live to help them cope, or escape it entirely. On that night they venture to a place called 'Wonder District'. Wonder District is the red lights district of Fablegrove. There they meet a girl who says she can give them what they need for the right price. They make a deal and quickly their arrangements bring them closer together, dangerously close in fact.

I might be open to attempting some other dark adaptions on a few other fairy tales. I'll make a small list here, but at the moment no particular fairy tale titles have come to mind. For now, I'll keep my interest in this fairly generic. I'd prefer to focus more so on more common fairy tales as opposed to some of the more unique (or less familiar) one's to little possibilities of who might send me what, as far as pitches and propositions go.
Off the top of my head:
I might consider trying, Cinderella (This I'd really like to explore) (This I'd be very much interested in as well),
Hansel & Gretel, The Wizard Of Oz, Red Riding Hood, The Little Mermaid and possibly a couple others. Please keep in mind that none of these titles are assured, as I prefer to collaborate, discuss and otherwise formulate the best and most of plotting, via my potential writing partners.
Random plot hooks
Cinderella - A sorority sister in a very pushy and cruel school environment. This isn't the same Cinderella you'll remember. Ever since she met her 'prince charming' (who this is can be debatal) Cinderella has been quite obsessed with finding her happy ending. Only obtaining that might require much more then true love and the finding of it. For Cinderella's true love is paid by the price of something much more dreadful and phenomenal then simple coincidence. Cinderella's made a deal with quite the interesting fairy godmother, one of which takes the cost of Cinderella's happiness, and escapes from a much more crude reality, by the trade of blood, sin, and everything quite terrible. Will Cinderella find her happy ending, or will the desire to achieve it lead her to carve a much more crude ending, from the errors and sins of her ways.
What happens when a fairy tale princess (or heroine) doesn't manage to endure and better her enemies? What happens when a fairy tale princess get's miss led, or otherwise finds herself going down completely the wrong path, so she never manages to find her prince, or confront that dragon that everyone is depending on her to get rid of? What happens when the fairy tale princess loses and doesn't get her happy ending? I'd really to explore this concept. Be it a take on an original fairy tale game, that borrows from other fairy tale games. A twisted version of one of the existing fairy tale games that concludes to anything but an ideal sort of ending. Or simply something entirely unlike anything anyone else has done before.
I'm open to plotting with those who might be interested in this sort of game. Ideally I'd be looking for a game with an interesting story, but a fair share of eroticism to explore in the plot as well. I don't want a pure smut game, but I'd be happy to meet somewhere in the middle. I'd be mostly interested in discussing this plot with others that might want to take a story down this sort of road. Who you play could be anyone from their worst enemy, to someone who was once their friend, but took advantage of them in their failures and bent their allegiance, or someone entirely new that comes after this heroine/princesses failures..
The possibilities are quite endless. Although I will admit, enchanted sorts of antagonists would be very interesting to play against, because I'm somewhat of a sucker for interesting magic (although I won't break any of my No's from my O/O's so be sure to check there if your interested in this sort of plot as well).
