[When Alice appears on the screen today, she's bobbing up and down in excitement with the widest smile ā€“ even without eyes to accompany it. Curiously, for those who have never met Alice before, her gaze always goes to the camera somehow, even though by all accounts she should not be able to see it.]

Everyone! I've thought of the most marvelous riddle and simply had to share it immediately! So many of you are much smarter than I am, and I'm certain you'll come up with an answer easily.

Hm... [She brings a hand to her chin and frowns in thought.] Now, how did it go again? I think it was..."If there's something in the forest, and no one's ever seen it, how do they know it'sā€”" --no, that's not quite right, is it? Someone who's seen it obviously told them and that isn't much of a riddle at all. Maybe it was...maybe it was "If everyone's scared of a beast in the forest, but no one's ever seen the beast, is it truly a beast at all"? Hmm...I don't think it was.

[Alice scratches her temple, frustrated that she's lost the correct wording to her absolutely fantastic riddle.]

Perhaps it wasn't so marvelous after all. [She shrugs. Eh. Over it.] Oh well. Everyone knows who you are is much more important than the sort of riddles you tell. So, let's do that instead!

Tell me Wonderland - who are all of you today? That ought to be much more curious than some riddle.

[She rests her chin in her hands, waiting for answers, and then the video feed flickers off.]

don't mention the beast by name
it's rude to talk about someone who's listening


[Is he joking or is he not. It is a mystery~]

[Something about that face, empty patches of skin where eyes should be, is...

familiar.

Can she see him
the same way
it does?

always watches
no eyes

[So she's curious and he's...him.

That face, it's just - it's too darkly reminiscent of the thing that loomed out at him from the trees, stark and white and staring facelessly into him.

Time to find out if there's any association.

He switches to video.

It wavers, bars of static flitting intermittently across the screen. His face might be visible for a frames at a time, but he leans closer and the wave of distortion increases tenfold.]


Not [kzzzjzzzzh] -eally, no.

[Not the answer he was looking for, but it's telling enough on its own. No relation, he's guessing. There's something earnest about her that lends itself to a much more charitable interpretation than her features initially suggested to him.

He switches back to text.]


bingo
your pretty good at riddles
so who are YOU today
rosswood: (all they'd find would be teeth)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-13 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
well you know i'm a pretty ice guy
what are you when you're not the curious girl?
rosswood: if you don't have friends (how to make a movie)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-13 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
hmm fair enough
i can see why ruling would get tedious


[Alice. Queen. He can put two and two together. He can tell who she's supposed to be or what she was, maybe, but who she is bears little to no resemblance to the girl from the Disney animated flick he remembers.]

were you different when you had
what's the word
eyes
rosswood: if you don't have friends (how to make a movie)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-13 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
eyes you know
the things you see with
irises, pupils, the whole bit
they seem to be missing
rosswood: (your editing lacks continuity)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-13 06:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[So she doesn't...

Huh.

That's disconcerting.]


well i thought i'd ask
you just reminded me of someone that's all


[Something, rather.]
rosswood: (it's so david lynchian)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-14 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
[He types out "a beast in a forest" before thinking better of it and hitting delete over and over again until the sentence disappears.]

an old friend of mine
he was kind of hard to pin down


[Which is putting it very lightly.]
rosswood: if you don't have friends (how to make a movie)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-14 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
he was kind of a
force of nature i guess
maybe it's better if we don't talk about that here
