An Alex in Wonderland Update - June 22, 2014
In Alex in Wonderland, your estranged mother, Alice Loughton, has died and left you the house she grew up in. When you attend her funeral, you discover that she apparently had quite a few friends or acquaintances that you’ve never met or known about, but some of them seem to know who you are. Her tombstone reads “Down the rabbit hole.” You have no idea what’s going on, but events will soon pull you into a world your mother knew and never told you about. You might find true love, deep friendship, or an unpleasant end in Wonderland. 
I worked my way through the prologue and am now working on the first chapter. Today I tried to put my work into Twine, because it allows me to take a look at the overarching plot and routes in a sort of map. However, it’s so different from working in the Ren’py engine that I ended up not using it. However, if you’re dabbling with interactive fiction, I highly recommend Twine. 
I’ve also found that writing the story in Ren’py code or Twine triggers my programmer’s mind instead of my writing mind. I think I’m going to do the bulk of my writing in something like Index Card or even Scrivener. After that, it’s a matter of adding variables, logic, and indentation to incorporate into code. 
Assets for the time being: I think I’m going to dig this game’s soundtrack purely from AM Classical, with sound from PDSounds, and keep searching for nice public domain photographs from the Library of Congress. I did spend some money on character sprite art packs from Blue Forest HP.
The final product will possibly still rely on the classical music and sounds, but will have actual real art commissioned. 
Currently there are three main characters: 

The White Rabbit. The first person in Wonderland who laid eyes on Alice, and technically the one who knew her the longest. She tasked him with looking after her child as she lay dying in the hospital (and of course, that didn’t make much of a difference in the end as to whether she was in Wonderland or not). However, he is also now in service to a new power in Wonderland, one that may take umbrage at Alice’s final wish. 

The Cheshire Cat. They, ah, helped Alice in her first adventures, and admired her from afar in their own way. They actually came to the human world two years ago when Alice’s physical health began to fail, and stayed in her room at the hospital in their tabby form. No one ever actually came to displace them, despite the hospital not being one that features healing cats. Alice didn’t trust them with looking after her child, but someone without allegiances might turn out to be the most trustworthy companion. 

Lady Paprika, the daughter of the Pepper Duchess. The Pepper Duchess had always been intrigued by Alice, and attempted to court her many a time. Some say that Alice’s sudden illness was brought on by the Duchess’s affinity with pepper, but why that might be is a Wonderland Whimsy and a Wonderland Truth, which is to say it is both and neither. Lady Paprika, who grew up into a fine young woman from her beginnings as a pig in babe’s clothing, is intrigued by the news that Alice’s offspring is now in her house. 
In the meantime, have finished Alice in Wonderland and am continuing with Through the Looking Glass. I think the second book is a lot better than the first, although the first ends on such a very… heartbreaking note, almost. Or at least a nostalgia-breaking note; I think there can be read an implication in the text that Alice’s sister once went to Wonderland and can go there no longer.
