Revisiting my past  
Love that there is a community just for AiW fans! John Hoffman was the first celebrity that I wrote a fan letter to (I was 11 or 12, I think), although I doubt it ever reached him...:-(
Been thinking about this show for years, but it really hit home when Patrick Richwood posted an interview on FB regarding his time as the White Rabbit. Since then, I've watched episode after episode on youtube (thanks to melpierson for working diligently on uploading them) and dreaming of the Hatter and Hare (much like I did back when). I even have started a fanfiction story re: the show's characters (tried posting it on fanfiction.net, but they've gotten rather too complicated since I last uploaded there five years ago).
Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone involved in this community and helping to make sure AiW stays in our hearts and minds for years to come. Can't wait to see what comes up next on here!

Hey Aurora! Awesome name btw! I LOVE AIW too! My favorite chars are Alice, the Tweedles and the Queen, then comes Hatter! I would love to read the interview Patrick did! Do you have skype? I would love to discuss AIW with you!

I don't do skype, but I think I can get the link of the interview........
You might've read it before...I don't know. As a newbie, I may think I've come up with something new and exciting, when in reality, it's something that's been read/reviewed a million times. :)

Welcome, Aurora! I'd love to read your fanfiction. :)

Thanks! I'm hoping to post the first chapter or two on wordpress.com in the next week or so. As soon as I get them uploaded, I'll let all of you know. And thanks! Very excited to be here!

Hi, Aurora! (I admit to loving that name too)
I just went and looked on Patrick's page - I think he meant 20 years ago instead of 25, hahah. Anyway, nice to meet you. You were one of those Hatter fangirls, eh?! Hey, the letter could've reached him, maybe he just got too many to respond to. ;)

Do post the fic whenever you get it up somewhere. I could help you with FF.net if you want - it's not really that complicated, and the site has a specific section for AIW now, too.

Been reading pretty much all of the AiW fan fiction on FF.net (gotta say the one where Hatter finds a letter from Alice declaring her feelings is my favorite--just wished it was longer). I have my own blog for my They Might Be Giants book series on wordpress.com, so I decided to just add another blog of random goodness and post my story there. I'm so excited, I could just squeak. I'll post another entry here in a sec so you all can read Chapters 1 and 2 so far.
Thanks to all for the warm reception!

Heh, anything Hatter/Alice is creepy wish-fulfillment for me, but I look forward to reading what you got. In fact, I skimmed it already and it seems like you have a strong writing style for this!

Thanks! I just hope I can keep my momentum going when I start writing Chapter 3!

Oh, hey there! Nice to meet you Aurora! I'm sure you get comments on your name all the time, but I have to chip in and say I love it. :) It's so pretty (and not just Aurora, I think Lenore is pretty too). My name's Jenna and I just joined the fandom as well.

ahhhh, you're friends with Patrick on facebook? I love him. Rabbit's my favorite, I'm still working up the nerve to friend him on FB >< I've never seen that interview so thank you for pointing it out. I think it's so wonderful we can contact the cast involved in the show.

Anyway, welcome! :D

You should request him to add you as a friend on FB. If he added me, you're a shoo-in! ;-) I tried adding Reece and Wesley, too, but I think their accounts are more for people they personally know, so I kindly bowed out. I really would like to see this page EXTREMELY active again and buzzing with all KINDS of AiW goodies! I'm just glad to find cool places to discuss aiW with other people who love it as much as me! And this is my 2nd time around loving it! This show was such an important part of my childhood...don't ever want to stop embracing it.

:) I'm going to build up the nerve to friend Patrick! I just friended Richard on facebook yesterday and he's such a sweetheart! Yeah, I heard Reece and Wesley prefer their facebooks to be personal, which is totally fine.

Just as long as there are people still enjoying AIW, I'm happy, but it'd be nice to see more people. I've been trying to stir people over on tumblr, but it hasn't seemed to work. Mel has over a thousand subscribers on her youtube channel (she's the one who posts the AIW episodes), but apparently no one's interested in joining the community.

That's so cool you watched it when you were a kid! I did as well, but I was so young. I only remember the Queen, the grammar owl, and the Tweedles dancing on the ship in the Halloween episode. XD

I need to find and then friend Richard, too! Wish I could find and add them ALL! Ah, well; I'll settle for having 3 of them for now, I guess. :-)
