Gosh, that sure was an event! Developments behind the IC scenes started quite a while ago, and there is a great write-up here
, for anybody who wants background details on the characters involved. Things really kicked off when Leo Fitz made an announcement,
preparing people for a little bit of noise pollution. Nothing dangerous, nothing to be alarmed by!
...Of course it was actually very dangerous, and everybody should have been extremely alarmed!
A portal meant to eventually provide a way out of Wonderland punched a hole into the Mirror side instead, leaving the most dreadfully disloyal of Her Majesty's people to escape to the Real side. Needless to say, the Queen of Hearts was furious!
She permitted her other Mirrors to cross properly: What followed was a week of chaos and traitor hunting, with successes and failurs of the latter being on display here
. At the Queen's orders Reals lost many of their most valuable possessions... and sometimes even more than that.
One week after her initial announcement the Queen of Hearts finally called her Mirrors back
, ready to punish and reward them all as she saw fit, and to inspect the boons they'd acquired for her. The worst was finally over, except--
Except for a number of strange noises, coming from the fences that night.
The culprit revealed himself the next day, being none other than Bill the Lizard with a special announcement
for Wonderland. To make up for everything they'd endured, and to expand a world that was evidently becoming too small for its restless inhabitants, Bill had been commissioned to create+ The Lake +
The lake has a familiar shape and is flanked by trees with a small boathouse at its north end. It is fed by a small river that runs into the woods, its origin unknown. On some days the lake is clear enough to see all the way to the bottom, on others its waters are murky and dark. Beautiful red water lilies dot the lake's surface, and frogs make themselves at home on big floating leaves. Wander alongside the shore, and sit down on a bench to admire the peaceful sight. Or take a boat, cast a line, and you might even catch a fish!
The settings page will reflect this change, and Kirsten has updated her magnificent map
of the grounds accordingly. Rejoice,
for Wonderland has grown, ready to welcome each and every new visitor with open arms! ♥THE END!
(Yes, for real this time.)
