I often like writing things in my own style and image which are already published; I suppose this is called fan fiction? I prefer to do this with old classic fantasy and horror rather than anything else, particularly my many versions of various scenes from Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz, of which I am entirely devoted to as a fan to the extent of being a collector of anything about those wonderful creations. I even quote from them a lot.
Alice was leaning against the big oak tree in her parents stately garden, it was a warm summers day with bright blue skies above and no clouds to be seen, she was thinking about life and pondering strange and wonderful things, when her eye caught a movement in the blue hyacinth bed.
Through all the commotion of rustling leaves and flowers bobbing around like they were coming alive, out popped a little white rabbit who rushed across the garden at full speed. Alice was amazed and excited there was a white rabbit in the garden that was very unusual as wild rabbits are usually brown and drab, but this rabbit was even more astonishing than that. Taking a quick second glance Alice realised she had saw right. The rabbit was wearing a silk embroidered waistcoat and holding a golden pocket watch, running about on two legs as though it was human. She shot up and ran after the rabbit that seemed to be muttering something to him-self.
“Oh, no, no, no, this can’t be, it can’t be” groaned the rabbit as he was running towards the bluebell wood.
“What can’t be Mr Rabbit”? Asked Alice, hoping she could help the poor creature.
He turned around instantly stopping for a moment looking as shocked as Alice did when she first saw him.
“I am too late to explain, please go away, no time for socialising, goodbye, I am late, late, late, late, late” and he ran off again.
Alice ran after him again, wondering what on Earth a rabbit could be late for? She ran and ran after him so fast that she tripped over a branch that was on the floor and fell with an almighty thud onto the ground. This made the rabbit stop once again and turned around and he frowned with irritation at Alice and took a few steps towards her.
“I am too late for all this funny business you know! If you follow me one more time, I shall have to get the law onto you, you know? It is not seemly to stalk strangers.” He said.
“I do apologise” said Alice. “But I was eager to find out what you were late for”?
“Mind your own business” said the rabbit and with that he was off again.
