And now to try and tie a few things together!
Arthur wasn’t sure what had happened. He thought he was supposed to be dead from that final battle with Morgana centuries ago, but when he woke up there was none of that. Lost and confused, he started to wander out into the snow to find out where he was and what was going on. He was taken in by a couple in the woods who informed him that he’d been asleep for centuries. Somehow he came back much younger than when he had died and he set out to find out if others from his time had been reborn as he had.
In his travels, he learned that only Merlin was left, still undying and his last link with the past he had come from. He was not yet used to the ways of this new world and sought him out, though encountered a strange being called the Cheshire Cat. He was a strange creature that spoke in riddles and seemed quite out of place in this modern world, but he bid Arthur a bit of help. Arthur eventually agreed to try kill the Dark Queen of Wonderland if he ever ended up there and was promptly dropped into a rabbit hole when he left.
Trapped in the twisted world of Wonderland, Arthur was bound by his word to at least attempt to save the land. There he was captured and imprisoned with a boy named Michael who appeared too young to be any trouble to anyone. From Michael he learned that the Dark Ace of Wonderland was Wendy, his sister, who had taken a liking to Arthur already. Wendy summoned the two of them to her and Arthur managed to trick her into letting him leave and return one day when he was powerful enough to rule alongside her, careful to never promise to come back and marry her. She gave him the ability to pass through the mirrors and bid him luck in leaving Wonderland, letting Michael go along with him as a part of the bargain. He was free for one week, then they would be coming after him to bring him back again.
Michael brought him back to their hideout and introduced him to the remains of Wonderland and Neverland. While he tried to convince Michael to come with him to find a way out, Michael insisted that he needed to stay behind and instead gave him free pick of whatever he needed. He took a pouch containing three vials and a sword, though Michael warned him that the pouch came from the mermaids and they were not to be trusted, so test the vials before using them.
On his search for an exit, he encountered many of the dark army and a strange fairy, wandering about looking lost and broken, like her mind had been shattered. He kept calling him Peter and finally gave him the power to free Wendy so it could all go back to normal. His kiss would break a maiden’s spell. And then she left, not realizing that she had picked the wrong guy.
In one encounter, he thought they were finally going to catch him again. This was when he met Alice, a very young girl who was very powerful. She saved him and was finally able to bring him back to reality and even managed to recognize the curse on the vials, saying that they would kill any human who used them that didn’t absolutely need them. She asked, mostly as a joke, that he repay her for all her help by finding her an ally and he agreed.
He found Alice an ally and got rid of the first vial in finding Snow White asleep. Alice noted that she was cursed and Alice wasn’t very good with breaking curses. Remembering what the fairy had said, tried kissing her. Apparently his kiss really did break the curse. After hearing her story, he tried to give her one of the vials, then left. He learned from Alice that she became a useful ally.
Continuing his search for Merlin, he came across the story of another young girl cursed to sleep. He thought nothing of it until he heard more about her, then thought perhaps she could use another one of the vials. He went to her, broke the spell with his kiss and gave her the vial so that she could help herself from then on.
He encountered another fairy on his travels, a refugee from Neverland, and she begged him to check up on the girl she helped, telling him her story. When he did, he encountered Cinderella and gave her the last vial before leaving. In repayment for helping her, the fairy showed him to Merlin.
Merlin was glad he’d finally shown up and sent him on a new quest. He’d already gained Excalibur, which had been lost in Wonderland, but now he had to assemble the new knights of the round table. They would be various people scattered across the land that he’d have to find quickly for Morgana was going to return and they had to be ready. He found one in Beast, though he is still looking for more to join his table.
