backpacking: (i've got one friend)

Hey... so, I totally missed my one-year mark. Pretty sure that was right in the middle of the Infected shit storm-- that couldn't be related, could it? But, anyway, I'm hoping someone just forgot to come by and give me my special badge or whatever you get for this illustrious milestone? I forgive you for being late, since I completely forgot, and you can come by with that prize anytime. Unless it's just for the five-year guys, and if that's the case, then... booooo.

[ Ellie pulls a face, offering a helpful thumbs-down for the camera. ]

Anyway! "What I Learned on My Wonderland Vacation"... I'm way less likely to drown now! Thanks, Jo. [ ... ] Uh, I know way too much about a lot of your personal lives, which is... gross, sometimes. There are kids here, people. [ Some of you are just nasty. ] I figured out exactly how much molten chocolate cake I can down before I get sick. That's three, and I'd say they're all big accomplishments. ... Except that middle one.

[ There are a bunch of other things, too, but her attention is already wandering and she yawns to prove it. ]

Does anyone have a Mirror who isn't extremely creepy? Inquiring minds want to know.

[ It's late, but Eggsy has been thinking about this for quite some time. Ever since he learned the closets just give you what you want. Things beyond your wildest dreams. Though he's only used it for suits. The most recent development was him getting his hands on two dogs via the closet. Two puppies actually. JB 2.0 is sniffing the camera for the first couple of seconds. Getting close to it and trying to take up most of the frame. This is what Eggsy gets for trying to form from the ground to include these monsters. Harry already a little skittish decides that JB 2.0 has something interesting so he immediately joins. ]

Bugger off for a minute. [ He reaches over them to take the device and lift it up. Which prompts both dogs to come over to Eggsy hoping that he'll give them whatever that is. ] Right then. How trust worthy are these closets yeah? They give you things, but how often do those things like turn against you? Should I fully expect to wake up in the morning to two dogs trying to eat me alive because the closet told them to? [ That sounds logical. Sorta. ] It'd be a fuckin' shame if JB 2.0 and Harry tried to eat me in my sleep.

Hey, Wonderland. Henry Mills here. And I wanted to keep a running tally of all the monsters or villains that you know of from your world that could come here. And then note whether or not they have been here.

I'll need people's help since I've only been here a year and a half, and I'm not sure what was here before me. So, I'll go start:

  • Ice queens (but only evil ones) - One named Ingrid was here but left.
  • Dark One (any form)
  • Ogres
  • Peter Pan - he was here and left a while ago
  • Curses (any type, usually there are a lot of clouds that build up before hand)
  • Poison apples/spindles/pointy things
  • Dragons (but not all of them are bad so you have to be careful)
  • Cruella de Vil
  • Zelena (she's here. Hi, Zelena. Sorry you're on this list.)
  • Flying monkeys (but they're actually people so...I'm not sure what to do about that?)
  • King Arthur
  • Trolls
  • Mermaids (but NOT Ariel.)

  • There's probably more, anyone from home can add to this. But yeah, it just might be good to know what to be aware of?

    [Mary had clearly figured out how closets work and traded in her gown for some real clothes. She was bored though tired of just reading books in the library. John didn't want her exploring alone, but she was wanting to look around more.]

    Hey, I was just wondering if anyone wanted to give me a tour. I want to explore the house some and don't know where to really start.

    [John wouldn't be happy about this, but he had to realize she wasn't his kid. She could handle herself.]

    In addition, I want something to do regularly, something to keep me busy. Does anyone have any ideas?

    [ The video feed opens with a shot of a new bar menu displayed prominently above the bar with the drink specials of the month before panning out to show the bar itself.

    A moment later, it turns around to feature Simon in the shot, the Brit grinning in his typical friendly manner. ]

    Alright, so with all the new arrivals we've been getting recently combined with the rather emotionally-exhausting magic tricks we've gotten to experience over the past few days, I thought it was time to remind people - or let them know in the first place - that if you're looking for a little distraction or socialization, the bar's on the fifth floor. Myself and Jo and Cami are your bartenders and one of us is usually hanging around the place, but if not, you're welcome to help yourself.

    And yeah, the theme of the month might be a little tongue-in-cheek. But. [ He shrugs here, looking mostly unconcerned about it, roguish smile still lingering. ] We're all a little mad here by now, right? Might as well enjoy what we can.

    [ And with that, he cuts the feed for the time being. Simon will be hanging out at the bar for the afternoon, visiting with anyone who wanders in or carrying on conversations to people who reply over the devices instead. He's feeling sociable either way. ]
    therapize: (so let's approach it this way)

    [Have you seen the inside of the therapy office before Wonderland? Because you're getting a good shot of it now, featuring the owner of this particular room.]

    Good morning, Wonderland. Since it's been awhile, and we're just coming off the heels of a rather chaotic event, I thought i'd introduce myself. My name is Cami O'Connell, and I am the therapist in residence here in Wonderland. An officially licensed therapist at that, thanks to a trip home a couple of months ago.

    [She's got a degree and everything now. Clearly she's a force to be watched out for.]

    For those of you unfamiliar with the concept of psychological therapy, the idea is to work through mental issues in order to help alleviate or lessen their effects. This could be anything, from a traumatic loss to guilt over something you've done, to trying to deal with whatever hell Wonderland has put you through. It's often a slow process that takes dedication and time, but one that can be immensely helpful if people are willing to see it through.

    [As so many people in Wonderland have failed to do. And that's half the reason why she's making this broadcast; too many people have been one-time visitors before they retreated into their own shells of denial.]

    Of course, therapy doesn't work for everyone; that's just a fact. But the problems you've got right now, the secret things you don't want to face because they're all just too much and you think that if you try they'll swallow you whole? They aren't going to go away if you just ignore them. They'll linger, and they'll fester, and then Wonderland will do what it always does by sparking some event that makes that trauma even worse.

    Trust me. I've been here long enough to see it, and to have it happen to me too.

    [She pauses then; hopefully she's gotten some people's attention with the speech this time.]

    One other benefit to the process is that it is entirely confidential. I will not divulge anything you tell me when you come to see me as a patient, unless you or someone else is at risk of harm. No one will even know you've talked to me at all.

    So if you're interested, if you think that there's the slightest chance that talking to someone may do you some good? Come by the office in room 20 on the sixth floor. If the door is closed, write your name on a piece of paper and slide it under the door, and I'll get in touch. Or you can respond to this broadcast, and we can arrange a time to meet.

    [She looks directly at the phone now, directly at the people watching this. Hopefully, it manages to reach them.]

    Wonderland is not an easy place to live in. And while you can learn how to shoot a gun or to defend yourself physically, the biggest toll it takes on all of us is an emotional and psychological one. So why not strengthen yourself there to?

    [A heartbeat longer, and Cami reaches to turn off the video. After that, it's just a matter of waiting for people to show up, or for her phone to ring.

    But while she does spend a good chunk of her day in the office, after certain replies she ends up fielding? By that evening Cami is more than happy to abandon talking to people in favor of hitting up the bar. Not that she'll reject anyone who tries to approach her there; it's just that the therapist is out for the evening, thanks, so please stop complaining about her life's work now so she can drink in peace.]

    [ Eggsy may have evolved and allowed himself to change, but he is not a completely changed man. He's just got a little more confidence. The chip on his shoulder is whittled down. He's less of a boy and more of a man. Still when he winds up getting kidnapped like this it makes the darker part of him come out. The part that sees red and spouts off shit before he can really stop himself. ]

    Merlin, are you taking the fucking piss? [ His face is on the screen. Glasses in place, but he's hardly calm. He looks not in control. Probably cause he just got fucking dropped in a bloody swimming pool. Water drips from his forehead as he looks down at his suit. Drenched. His umbrella lays off to the side. ] Where the fucking hell am I? [ This just seems like some sort of bullshit that Merlin would pull. Something to keep him on his toes. He's fucking Galahad now and Merlin still thinks he needs to fucking prove himself?

    Eggsy shakes his head wildly trying to get some of the water off. He stops to look at the device once again. Clearly something planted by Merlin. Everything about this situation just screams him. Right down to fucking drugging him and dropping him in a bloody swimming pool. Probably behind some little screen having himself a right good laugh at Eggsy in this predicament. ]
    Why ain't you pullin' this shit on Rox? Why'm I in the bloody pool?

    [ Someone clearly needs to tell him that this isn't the work of Merlin. ]
