Roleplay / Your Wonderland

Go To

Your Wonderland is a submission-based Danganronpa/Alice: Madness Returns crossover roleplay group hosted over at Discord and Tumblr. Set inside the fantastical world of Wonderland! Lucky for them, the students will get to experience the wonders of this magical place firsthand.

However, once there, things go differently than planned...


The Tropes in this magical and psychological-horror roleplay include:

  • Anyone Can Die: Even being a roleplay, any of the characters can be a victim or culprit. Even extends to deaths outside the norm, as demonstrated with an unidentified disembodied head found in the cargo room during Prologue.
  • Body of the Week: Supposedly, every chapter results in at least one death that the remaining students have to investigate.
  • Clear My Name: Happens whenever somebody is accused of the crime and fights the charges, or when their friends do their best to help them. Of course, the question of whether or not they're actually guilty is very real...
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The executions, which are tailor-made for each culprit. Usually, they either mock their Super High School Level talent or exploit their deepest fears, ensuring their punishment is as terrifying as possible. Occasionally, a murder victim also dies in a particularly horrible manner.

  • Dwindling Party: The game began with 22 students, and people have steadily begun to die as the chapters go on.
  • Everyone Is a Suspect: The objective of each trial is to find out who is the most suspicious.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: Unlike the source material, these students remember their times together at Hope's Peak. The difference is that many of them were just moving in the last they remember - before they apparently lost their memories.
  • Evidence Scavenger Hunt: Once a body is discovered, the surviving students, culprit included, are expected to investigate for evidence to prepare for the class trial where they will attempt to find the person behind the crime.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Often, relationships (both platonic and possibly romantic) are formed due to the stress everyone is put under and the bonds created thusly.

  • From Bad to Worse: The students come to in an unknown facility with no memories of how they got there, despite people claiming to be their 'upperclassmen' and 'supervisors' saying that this shouldn't be the case. The situation only escalates when an armed intruder begins firing through the facility and releases a gas that knocks the students unconscious. They come to in an unknown cargo room with their only exit past a deadly, electrified fence.
  • Hidden Depths: There are more to every character than meets the eye - it's just that some of them are rather open to telling others their backstories or feelings, and others keep it under such a careful lock and key.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: The class has no recollection of their upperclassmen or how they reached the facility in Prologue despite being shown proof that they had signed onto the 'Wonderland Project'.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Considering its premise and the fact that it's a roleplay, the characters are not above poking fun at the supposed absurdity of their circumstances.
  • Mystery of the Week: There's a new murder every couple of weeks in real life, and every half a week or so in-game.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, as there is one student named Yuin and another Yukio. This has created a need to differentiate their nicknames - commonly, Yuu - to avoid confusion.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Several arguments break out in the cargo room thanks to Yuin's drive to escape, which leads to her being frustrated with the class. This leads to some students trying to point out that they all have the same goal, and shouldn't be fighting when they're all trying to accomplish the same thing. Yuin isn't purposely trying to be antagonistic, as it's revealed that she's really just worried about protecting her peers.
  • Public Execution: If a killer is caught or if someone is randomly chosen as a scapegoat, they are dragged away to a cruel execution that usually causes them a lot of emotional and physical suffering before they are finally killed.
  • Random Number God: While not a staple of the game, several students use RNG to help decide outcomes of certain actions - leading to some amusing situations or conditions.
  • Sadistic Choice: Kill one of your classmates, or spend the rest of your life in captivity — and when it comes down to the trial, fess up and receive a gruesome punishment, or escape with the blood of everyone else on your hands.
  • Teen Genius: All the students to some extent. They were initially accepted into Hope's Peak for being the best in their age bracket at what they do.
  • Tonight, Someone Dies: Specifically, every couple of weeks, someone will be murdered.
  • Translation Convention: All characters are presumed to be speaking Japanese unless otherwise noted, even though the game is written in English.
  • Win Your Freedom: Students are informed that escape is possible; they just have to get away with murder.
  • World of Snark: Many of the students and NPCs have sharp tongues. Snark-to-Snark Combat is inevitable.
