"Once upon a time in the great metropolis of London lived a curious young girl, with long flowing blonde hair and blue eyes named Alice. Alice enjoyed reading with her sister, and one hot summer afternoon, while her sister was reading to her, Alice saw something a bit.. peculiar... A white rabbit with pink eyes, wearing a jacket, and a pocket watch, ran past her shouting, "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!" Well, Alice being the curious sort she was, chased after the rabbit which led her to a tree in which she fell down a hole and went on an amazing adventure in Wonderland and lived happily ever after"
Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Whatever you say Narrator!
That is just one story. One pathetic girls story. Stonebrook Island is a far cry from the great metropolis of London, England, and has greater stories to tell. Stories that are anything from perfect. Where happily ever after doesn't really exist, and if it does, it wasn't without great peril.
A century ago, Queen Marissa's heart was broken by her only son, who left her for one of these pathetic girls in hopes of living happily ever after. Queen Marissa was so distraught, so devastated, that she did the only thing she felt she could do; obtained a death curse with the hope that her son's new bride would die for it. However, the curse backfired and with it, the death of Queen Marissa. For some, the death of the queen meant freedom. Freedom from her reigning Stonebrook with an iron fist and misusing the resources (and people) of Stonebrook for her own sick, twisted, and selfish needs. For others, it meant something different. Revenge. Revenge against any one and everyone who stood for what they believed in. For what she wanted for their small community. The years have passed, with no information given on the whereabouts of the curse that took out their beloved queen, and with each passing day, her only survivors are banding together to locate this curse; no matter the cost. With a high bounty placed on whoever finds it, the villains are determined to find said curse and claim the top prize and be victorious once and for all.
On the other side of the coin, the heros, heroine's and everyone who stands beside them are doing everything they can to keep the curse hidden so that the residents of Stonebrook can live in peace and happiness.
With the curse still out there hidden deep within Stonebrook, and all these various characters running around trying to be the first to find it or keep it hidden, all living on one tiny island, and each side having their own master plan, the question is, who has what it takes to succeed?
It is the ultimate fight where good and evil will collide. Will the evil reign supreme or will good manage to conquer once and for all like it has always done Once Upon a Time.
