Author's note: Hey, this is my first Alice In Wonderland story. I know that is said a lot, trust me I've read hundreds of fanfics on here. But it's true, but I'm defiantly not new to writing books or fanfics. This isn't perfect, and I don't plan for it to be. But just please give it a chance.
Also, I do not own Alice In Wonderland. At all!
Stranger Than Me
It had been several months after Alice left Underland. Everyone missed her and yet the world was blooming under the White Queen. The flowers bloomed, the sky lost every sight of grey clouds, and the curious creatures all returned. Yet everyone missed her.
She was the Alice, after all. She has saved them all.
Tarrant Hightopp missed Alice the most. He had grown a great friendship with her while she was here last. Now that she was gone, and he knew not if she was to return, he did not know what to think.
"What more to do…?" He asked himself as he looked around his hat-making room.
The room itself could not be seen under the mountains of hats and fabrics all of brilliant blues. He had spent most of his free time making hats of blue to match Alice's golden hair. He missed her and his stomach tickled when he missed her more than he should.
He glared down at his newest creation, decided he hated it, and threw it across the room in frustration. He calmed himself before he started to lose it. Checking his pocket watch, he grabbed his hat and stepped out of his house while placing it atop his head.
Tumbling through the Tulgey Wood, he thought about if Alice would ever return. She did, after all, miss him too didn't she? But what if she forgot?
No, no she would never forget!
She did last time. She forgot everything. She thought this was all just a dream, including you.
Hatter shook his head and continued on his trek. He then thought he heard a soft sound, as if there was someone in the woods with him. He looked around and when he faced the left he was lucky to have ducked under the object that was flying right at him.
"Thackery!" He called but when he looked he saw the rabbit and he ran after him to play in his game. He chased him through the shadows and climbed over rocks and tree roots.
He squinted to see where his crazed rabbit friend was heading. Up ahead he saw a wall with several trees and vines curling all around it, devouring it. The March Hare stopped his race when he landed at the highest peak of the wall that was visible. As Hatter caught up he realized that it wasn't The March Hare. It was a black rabbit that he had never seen before.
The rabbit met his eyes and waited for him to catch up. He tried asking the rabbit why it threw something at him but before he could it jumped into the air, straight up. A large area where he jumped began to morph and looked as if someone was disturbing a painting. Then as soon as he was there, the rabbit disappeared.
Tarrant was very confused and he climbed up the fallen rocks and low branches until he was sitting where the rabbit sat.
"Now where'd he go?" He asked himself aloud. He looked up but just saw the tree leaves making a canopy above him. He also saw a dark blob hiding inside it, thinking this was the black fur rabbit he stood to reach into the tree. "Got you!"
Just as he pressed his hands into the black blob he discovered it wasn't the rabbit. But he started to fly and as he shouted and flung his arms in the air to stead himself he understood that he was not on the ground.
He felt as if he was falling…falling up?
AU: I know it is short. That is because I want it to be short…like skits. I know it blazed through many things in one but I promise the whole story isn't like this. Please review if you are even remotely curious.
