Alice's journey is of course very curious and vivid, but what if it isn't real? For Week 11, I'm contemplating writing a story about what was really happening while Alice was experiencing all of her wild adventures. Hallucinations - that would make much more sense! But what are causing these hallucinations? Well, I'm thinking of making Alice severely ill, and her very high fevers are the culprit. I could relate some of the things she experiences in her vivid dreams to things that are actually happening. Perhaps Alice is with her sister when she falls ill, so it is the last "normal" thing she recalls. When Alice imagines drinking the potions, she is really being fed medicine to help her recover. Cheshire Cat is her own cat, who Alice even mentions at the beginning of the story. I think there are a lot of things in this story that I could relate to being ill.
