I shed one tear? That’s all it takes?
This is a 14 page story I’ve been working on for the past couple months (which is why there’s been a slow down in updates). I hope you like it, I worked pretty hard on it!

Zachary Levi and the Nerd Machine family need your help to fund Nerd HQ 2014! Nerd HQ is a free experience for fans during the weekend of SDCC to test out the newest video games, gadgets, and tech, as well as give fans the opportunity to attend celebrity conversation panels (which Zac livestreams), photo-ops and signing-ops. In addition, funds raised during this event are contributed to the charity, Operation Smile.
Typically, they fund the event solely through Sponsorships, but last year it didn’t work out and essentially almost ended Nerd HQ. If you can spare $5 to this campaign that would be amazing, but if not, then don’t worry at all. You can show your support by spreading the word for this wonderful cause :D
Let’s try to avoid Twister.. we know how that goes

And Alice in wonderland was based off her opiate trips her uncle forced her to take. And he wrote down her stories and experiences and made it into a book.
You ever find a post that’s so wrong your eyes roll out of your skull? Let’s begin:
First off, most of what it says about the Mad Hatter is true. Hatmakers in the 19th century were exposed to mercuric nitrate vapors when felting animal furs to make their hats, which resulted in severe health problems. These issues included tremors, emotional instability, and physical weakness. However, by most historian’s accounts, the Mad Hatter was based mainly on Theophilus Carter, a furniture salesman whose odd affectations Carroll was well acquainted with.
The Cheshire Cat's section is where this gets maddening(pardon the pun). First off, Toxoplasma gondii and the disease it causes, Toxoplasmosis were fully unknown at the time Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. T. gondii wasn’t discovered until 1908, 43 years after the book was written. The side effects of T. gondii were absolutely never considered ‘harmless’, the first confirmed case of a T. gondii infection in a human being left the dead with lesions on her eyes and brain. T.gondii can be linked to schizophrenia and suicide, but causal evidence is severely lacking. And for the love of god, schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder/disassociative identity disorder are NOT THE SAME THING.
Alice In Wonderland Syndrome is actually a real thing. It’s experienced mainly by migraine sufferers or people who have ingested hallucinogenics such as the Fly Agaric mushroom or LSD. Considering that the mushroom Alice ingested in Alice in Wonderland was not a Fly Agaric, and LSD wasn’t synthesized until 1938, AND that Lewis Carroll suffered from chronic migraines(in his diary he mentions the visual effects he commonly experienced), we can deduce that Carroll used his own experiences as inspiration for Alice’s constant size fluctuations. Again, this has nothing at all to do with schizophrenia.
The hallucinogenic properties of mushrooms have been known for centuries, any culture found in the same place as psychotropic mushrooms will have a history with them. Unfortunately, the Fly Agaric mushroom is the one that can cause AIWS, and again, it was not featured in the book. Furthermore, Fly Agaric was very rarely used recreationally by anyone, due to the wildly unpredictable nature of its effects. There is little evidence that Psilocybin mushrooms were used recreationally in any significant amount during Carroll time, though the hallucinogenic and spiritual effects would likely be well known by him.
It’s a lot of fun for dumb stoners to read all this drug shit into the story(I should know, I am one), especially since it was written in the Victorian era where basically everyone was off their tits on something or other. That being said, the comment directly above mine is complete bullshit. Lewis Carroll was not Alice Liddell’s uncle. Alice Liddell, the girl for whom the story was written, was not ‘forced to take opiates’ in order to write the books. It’s possible that Liddell did take opiates, as morphine and heroin were popular children’s medications at the time, but she was most certainly not forced into a drug-induced state in order to write a book. Jesus fucking Christ, where did they get that from?
Look, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are very odd, very surreal books, but the links to drug use and mental illness are tenuous at best. I mean, the book was written as a gift to a 10 year old girl. Why the hell would anyone, especially in the incredibly uptight era of the Victorians, write a little girl a story about drug binging and psychosis?
The reason this gets to me is that the books do have hidden meanings. Carroll was an avid mathematician and there are many references to mathematical concepts hidden within the story. The books are also an interesting satire of the Victorian era with many allusions to the politics of the day. Interpretations of the story like those seen in the images above just spread harmful and incorrect information about drugs and mental illness.

Teen Wolf AU à la 10 Things I Hate About You: In which Isaac wants to date Cora, but she isn’t allowed to go out with anyone until her older brother Derek, who is well known in school for his less than stellar social skills and nonexistent interest in dating, has found someone as well. So they develop a plan to pay someone - Stiles Stilinski, to be precise - to take Derek out. None of them really expected it to work, and much less for Derek and Stiles to actually fall in love with each other…
