{{Happy Alice Day!

I had a lovely tea-party-for-one earlier—& may have Disneybounded as Alice as well. ^_^ As it's been my tradition the past few years (i.e. I fail at RP nowadays & really must try to do better), I've an Alice birthday post open for all at SWS. I hope any & all Star Wars Day / Alice Day / Audrey Hepburn Day celebrations were frabjous!}}

{{::waves sheepishly:: Hallo there! It's been far too long since I've done anything RP-wise. I've recently begun playing Pathfinder (it's rather like D&D) & my Alice!muse has been clamouring to be let out again. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things (& hoping my Alice voice hasn't become rubbish) . . . also, I'm going to attempt to try to get [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast actually running. :/

It also seems as though I stopped posting my Prompts of the Fortnight posts several months before I accidentally went on a nearly two-year hiatus. Must remedy this. :/

I'm presently working on a prompt response for [ profile] charloft & will be posting it shortly! }}

{{Oh frabjous day! Calooh! Callay! It's been far too long that I've done anything with Alice—I shall most definitely try to remedy this. I'm pondering whether it would be worth it to once again try to get my musebox up & running. I think I have a friend who might be interested, but I'm not sure . . .  :/

I am once again having an Unbirthday tea party with my mum in celebration (mostly because I have a ballet recital tonight, but also because Unbirthday parties are far more Wonderlandy. ^_^ }}

It's 10/6, which means it's Hatter Day! Callooh, callay! ^_^

Why the sixth of October instead of the tenth of June? Ten shillings and sixpence … shillings are larger than pence; shillings are made of pence: months are larger than days; months are made of days!

Therefore, 10 shillings and sixpence = 10 months and six days. </ rambly pseudologic>

Let the Mad Tea Parties commence! ^_^

After an impromptu trip to the World's End Public Library wherein she ran into Fritz and Imogene (& assisted in a bit of research), Alice has decided to join the ghost hunting adventure described here.

Last night, she went to the CharLoft to procure some of the puzzling "business casual clothing" required for the endeavor (i.e. the skirt—the blouse is from her own wardrobe). This is something similar to what she shall be wearing:

Who you gonna call? )

The 'venture starts tonight, so I'm going to sign onto the Charloft IRC chat as soon as I finish typing this & get myself settled in for some RP! ^_^

{{I haven't been doing much with Alice of late (and not entirely because I started playing WoW last month). I've a few prompts from the last fortnight or so that I started/have ideas for, but haven't quite written. I'm entirely failing at this year's 100 Drabbles of Summer Challenge, mainly because I haven't felt inspired. (And the museboxes Alice is in haven't been very active lately, either.)

As I’ve been doing almost less RP than prompting, I’m worried I might be losing Alice’s “voice.” Whilst I was editing my possibly-slightly-mad list of other Wonderlanders about d_m/sws that Alice has met/I’ve seen around, I read a few of her older threads … and it seems that, I don’t know, I’ve lost something since then.

And it's rather disheartening that after having [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast open for nearly a year— with posts on [ profile] musemostwanted, [ profile] character_rpg, and [ profile] role_play_ads (& even links to the same on [ profile] dear_mun, [ profile] sixwordstories, and [ profile] charloft)—my little museboxy game has had barely any interest (i.e. we have three characters & two of them are played by me). I’d like to advertise again (it’s been more than six months, so I probably could) … but I don’t want to do so if I’m not confident with my Alice any more. :\

I've not been on the Charloft livechats in forever (it’s been over a year, methinks), but I want to attempt the upcoming ghost hunting ’venture. Alice hasn’t gotten the chance to do a proper ‘venture in World’s End yet (she was in the Fight Loft once when it was something else entirely—I think for the Beach Party RP on [ profile] charloft_rpg?) … and I’ve missed my Loftians! :(

I suppose the point of this rather tl;dr post is that I’m waffling about Alice quite a bit (if I haven't misused “waffling” in that last phrase). And I’m a month late to the party, but here's my link anyway:

{{Ugh, I have got to post my table for [ profile] charloft's 100 Drabbles of Summer (and write more than one drabble) ... I'm so behind this year already. :(

Today in the land of Lost Plots, Alice was presented at Court. As such, she is now officially Out in Society. I may drabble on the subject, but for right now I just have the following sws post. (Oh, and for reference, Alice's Presentation dress looks something like Picture 2 here crossed with this).}}

Happy birthday, Mr Van Dort! I do hope you have a lovely day—and a wonderful upcoming year as well.
boxofcomfits: (OOC: chibi Alice)
First of all, I've been entirely failing at posting the Prompts of the Fortnight for the past, oh, several months. I shall attempt to post a giant one this weekend (or possibly next, as I have a dance recital this week).

I shall once again be attempting [ profile] charloft's 100 Drabbles of Summer challenge. Hopefully I'll be able to complete the challenge instead of only making it halfway—in December—like last year.

First of all, a bit of silliness. Last night, I was on Sophia Myles's IMDb page, looking up the run time for The Abduction Club (from where most of Alice's icons came) and noticed a Related List on the sidebar entitled "Celeb Look-a-likes."

I scrolled down, reading the list, and cheered when I came to the nineties. Why?

Two Liddell ladies )

That is all. (For now, at least.) ^_^

{{Happy Alice Day! I shall be celebrating with an Unbirthday tea party with my mum on Saturday. We would have had it tonight, but she has a class ... although, I think an unbirthday celebration actually works better in this case. ^_^}}

Today is not my Unbirthday. {beams}

Some of you may have already received one of these in the Valentine's box prompt on [ profile] charloft, but Alice & I would like to wish all of you a very happy Valentine's Day. (And yes, I did mean to post this earlier; I didn't quite get the chance to today—I probably ought to have posted it last night when I did so on my personal journal.)

Hopefully-more-than-vaguely-Victorian valentine! )

Hope all of you had/are having a lovely day! ^_^

{And it's actually on time for once, hurrah! Also, gratuitously using my newest icon—I've had it on my computer for a while, but needed proper keywords so it hadn't been uploaded yet. ^_^ }

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Sunday RP} ~ Questions (30 January; In which ravens & writing-desks are discussed)
{Saturday} ~ Epigraphy (31 January; prompt from 31 July)
{Friday} ~ Christmas gift list (1 February; prompt from 26 November)

        Winter Bingo Challenge (at [ profile] charloft; Prompt Card):

O4 ~ Humbug (31 January; Yes, most of these are two-prompts-with-one-piece)
O2 ~ Mummers (31 January)
O5 ~ Generosity (1 February; I also have a prose piece in the works for this prompt—but I needed to post something more quickly, so I used the list first)

Hurrah, I accomplished Winter Bingo! ^_^

        At [ profile] dear_mun:

It's not so bad, really, if you just take it all with a pinch of salt. (27 January, reply to [ profile] hisrunnings) {Hurrah, another Doctor!}

(Also, I can hardly believe it's been since November that I last had a [ profile] dear_mun thread.)

        Museboxes {[ profile] thehouseofmouse}:

You have got to be kidding! (4 February) In which Alice assists Sheriff Pride in a precarious position.

A china teapot has mysteriously appeared on one of the tables (26 January) In which the Dormouse appears & has storytime with the Hatter (Also, I gain another muse). (Event in progress)

Yes, I now have a Dormouse muse. In which I ramble on )

In other news, I shall have to do a bit of research in the near future: I've both a wedding (Lorina's) & a coming-out/presentation (Alice's) to plan (or at least touch on in prompts/RP) for June.

{Testing the widget for my Alice playlist widget (for the "Story of My Life" Saturday [ profile] charloft prompt (which I originally answered here). Because I somehow failed at this yesterday & ended up deleting most of the playlist when I created the widget. I'm not quite sure how it happened either. I blame being new at using GrooveShark (i.e. I signed up for an account yesterday).

How many miles to Wonderland? )

ETA: The proper "Story of my life (Take II)" post is now up! (I'm linking it instead of waiting for the Fortnight Post as it's quite meta & probably ought to be here on it's own as well.) ^_^

{The musebox is nearly officially open! I've got posts up for Possibly Asked Questions, a Cast of Characters, and the mun Contact List. Tomorrow, I shall unlock the first two posts and add my bare-bones Realm of Wonderland & its Environs thoughts (must decide on whether Truffula Forest or Meadow sounds better. Also, find a more suitable name for the Caterpillar's Forest) info (I quite hope we'll have a map at some point).

And then I shall have to post on [ profile] musemostwanted. On Thursday, I'll put a linky sort of post on [ profile] sixwordstories. I'd put the sws post up tomorrow (weeell, technically it'll be later today, but as I've not gone to sleep yet it's still "tomorrow." From a certain point of view, or something.), but I really must do a vaguely OOC/metaish "Happy Hatter Day!" post instead. Because it's 10/6, see? ^_^

If you'd like to look at the musebox & give me any feedback, it's over at [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast (though the PAQ, Character List, &c. are on the OOC comm, [ profile] ooc_teaparty). It would be greatly appreciated, especially as I'm entirely new at this game-creating/modding thing. ::worries::

Hopefully, I should be more active on Charloft later this week—I've got a post in the works (i.e. it's a Word doc) containing responses for two of the recent (for certain values of "recent") Munday prompts.

But now it's bedtiem.}}

{{I really *must* get the musebox up. Especially as I've technically had the OOC comm for over a month now (it's empty & such, but I *do* have the layout set up! No profile yet, though.)

I've narrowed the name down to four two choices:

* beforebreakfast
* 6thngsbreakfast
* 6imposbreakfast
* 6beforebrkfst (thanks Dien!)

Any thoughts?

Now, to watch Bones ...

ETA: As of now (i.e. half-midnight on technically Saturday) the musebox is up! And by this I mean that the comm has been "created"—it doesn't have a profile or layout yet (though I've a Word Doc for the former & have something bookmarked for the latter) ... but it now exists! I ended up going with 6thngsbreakfast (the "i" is in impossible or something) as beforebreakfast is already in use as a syndicated account (I gathered it's along the lines of "learn Japanese before breakfast!").

More info, linkage, &c. will be forthcoming as I work on the two comms (this one & the OOC comm). I hope to have everything ready & a post on [ profile] musemostwanted by Monday. ::is probably overly ambitious:: (Gah! What am I getting myself into? I've never even co-modded a RPG comm before!) }}

As promised earlier, here is a vagueish timeline of Alice's drabbles for the 100 Drabbles of Summer Challenge at [ profile] charloft. (I'm considering everything canon for future purposes.)

The full drabble table, which includes links to each ten drabbles in the comments, can be found here (the drabbles are not going to be linked on this post). The timeline is very much "in-progress" & will be edited as more drabbles are posted (most likely after every ten). Also, keep in mind that this is a *vagueish* timeline. Things may move about a bit.

at least I know who I *was* when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then. )

Snagged from L via [ profile] vavarner:

I write like
Lewis Carroll

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


I pasted in my first ten drabbles for the 100 Drabble Challenge—and then changed all the references to Wonderland residents to more "mundane" nouns (the Mock Turtle became a regular turtle once more, the Tweedles were changed to "the boys"); Wonderland itself became "there" or "that place"; Alice lost her name again ("her," "Miss") to make sure the result wasn't skewed (Carroll was the result the first time but I thought that might be because "Wonderland" appeared four times in the passage along with the aforementioned characters; Alice is "namedropped" nearly thirty times!).

Eeee! I might need to flail a bit more! ^_^

(And right now Alice!muse [meta version, of course] is shaking her head at me "For getting so excited about a silly Internet meme.")
