AN: I do not own Alice in Wonderland or Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan
When they came to shore they were all decidedly uncomfortable with being wet and so they consulted with each other to decide the best way to get dry. Eren got into an argument with the Marco-Lory who insisted he was right since he was older. When Eren asked him how old he was, he refused to say. The Jean-mouse got annoyed and pointed, "Sit down, I'll get you dry." When everyone was seated, Jean nodded, "This is the driest thing I know." When he was satisfied with the attention he cleared his throat and began speaking, "Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and-" "Ugh," said the Marco-Lory. Jean narrowed his eyes at him, "Did you say something?" Marco shook his head, "Of course not!" Jean shrugged, "Hm, I thought you did. Anyway, Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source." The Krista-duck frowned, "What do they do with the eaten humans?" Jean snorted, "You know very well what they do with them." Krista shook her head, "I wouldn't know that. I know what I do with the frogs and worms I eat, but what would someone do with an eaten human?" Jean ignored Krista and continued on, "A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than-" He turned to Eren, "How is it then?" Eren shook his head, "Still as wet as ever." The Ymir-Dodo rose, "Very well, I believe we should transgress to more energetic activities-" "Speak English!" Yelled the Connie-eaglet, "I don't know the meaning of most of those words, and I don't think you do either!" The others snickered and giggled. Ymir's feathers puffed in indignation, "Humph, what I was going to say, was that the best thing to get us dry would be a Causcus-race." Eren blinked, "What's that?" Ymir graciously showed them how it was done. It was a rather confusing race as there was no clear starting line nor any rules about when to start or stop. After a half hour everyone was dry and the Ymir-Dodo said the race was over. "Who won?" Eren asked. "Everyone! We must all have prizes." "Who will give the prizes?" The Krista-duck asked. Ymir pointed at Eren, "She will!" Eren blinked, "I'm a boy!" The Jean-mouse narrowed his eyes, "Hmm, are you sure? I thought only girls wore dresses." Eren glanced down and yelped at the sight of a blue dress and a white pinafore. He was even wearing a blue ribbon on his head as well as the red scarf around his neck, "Wha-when…" "Prizes! Prizes!" everyone called as they surrounded him. Eren desperately stuck his hand into the pocket of his pinafore and pulled out a box of comfits. There were five pieces; just enough for everyone. "But she must have a prize for herself!" Said the Jean-mouse. The Ymir-Dodo nodded, "True, true. What else have you in your pocket?" "Um…" Eren reached into the pocket and pulled out a thimble. Ymir held out her feathered hand and he gave it to her. Ymir cleared her throat and held out the thimble, "Congratulations on becoming a winner of the Caucus-race. Please accept this resplendent thimble as your prize." Everyone cheered and Eren nodded his head and took the thimble. Eren snorted, "Man if Annie saw me right now she would-" "Annie?!" cried a chorus of animals. With that the Jean-mouse, the Ymir-Dodo, the Connie-eaglet, the Krista-duck and the Marco-Lory scattered and left Eren alone. "What did I say?" He sighed and flopped onto his back. After a bit, he heard footsteps and sat up wondering if someone had returned.
