Chapter 1: Rabbit Hole
By Tom Hunter, taken from the notes of Madeline Twitch M.G. and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carol.
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had not pictures or conversations in it, “and what,” thought Alice, “is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?”
M: Alice has not yet entered the first phase. She is bored, and her life lacks purpose. Note her first question: “What is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?” This is a riddle for the audience. Books without pictures or conversations of any kind are usually books of instruction, or perhaps of philosophy. Dodgson is indicating the story's true purpose.
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the day made her feel very sleepy and stupid,) whether the pleasure of making a daisy-

Before we begin, I must make an attempt to explain a few points about the chronology of the notes which I will be adapting. I must first make it clear that my hostess has not presented the notes to me in the order by which their pertinent scenes appear in the book, but by order in which she penned them. Secondly, my readers must understand that these notes are highly self referential, and that there are certain important points which will need to be explained at the beginning if we are to make any headway in reading these notes in conjunction with the book itself. I must also emphasize that none of the ideas or hypotheses presented in these notes are my own. I am merely changing the order in which certain ideas are presented to better assist my readers, all under the advisement and consent of their original author.
First, I must explain what Madeline refers to as the Four Stages of Madness. Though this will be discussed more fully in Chapter 9: The Mock Turtle's
Transformers: Bumblecopter“Just... Explain to me what you were TRYING to do when this happened,” Ratchet said, giving the helicopter rotor lodged in Bumblebee's back an experimental twirl.Transformers: Bumblecopter by Decadent-Depraved
“Wheeljack said this was a totally legitimate option for our new power-link!” the yellow autobot exclaimed, wincing as the mechanic tugged on the rotor.
“Really?” Ratchet said. “Did he sort of mumble something like 'theoretically' or 'I'm 99.6% sure' after that?”
“Might've said something like that,” Blazemaster grumbled. “But it's just obvious, right? I mean, my rotor needs to go somewhere while I'm in this new gun mode, right?”
“Yeah,” Bumblebee said, nodding at his minicon partner. “And this just made the most sense. I mean, Hotshot does that flight mode thing with Jolt. Why shouldn't I get one with Blazemaster?”
Ratchet grumbled as he tugged hard, attempting to dislodge the levitation assembly from his yellow friend's back. This
I'd like to apologize for my general lack of activity over the last few months. I am once again engaged in another semester of college, this time with my biggest class workload yet, so I don't have very much time for personal creation. To anyone who I follow and usually comment on, I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping up, and fully intend to go over your galleries soon.
I also have a much broader announcement on the subject of my proposed comic Decadent and Depraved. While I have every intention on creating this story, I have decided not use a comic format. I am a writer, not an artist. While I love drawing from time to time, I realize that I would quickly become sick to death of having to keep up the story in a comic medium. I have instead decided to post it as a set of illustrated short stories. However, these short stories will be just that, and will not be the far reaching plot I had initially planned. Of that particular story, ladies and gentlemen, I have become so fond that I intend to make it into a full novel with accompanying illustrations, which I intend to have published. I will, however, be posting other short works about Tom, Madeline, and the Mad Universe here as I think of them, as well as minor illustrations as the mood strikes me.
Thank you so much to all the people who watch me, especially those who regularly comment, especially you, Lisa.
