An AU version of Victor Van Dort from Corpse Bride
, crossed with "Alice: Madness Returns." After the events of the movie, his parents sent him to Dr. Bumby to forget "that corpse girl," leading him to meet Alice Liddell and become her friend (and gradually fall in love with her) shortly before the events of "Alice: Madness Returns," which he then proceeds to live through with her (or, more accurately, goes mental trying to keep her from getting into trouble while SHE lives through the events of A:MR).Long Version:
This is an alternate universe Victor from my fanfiction series The Forgotten Vows Verse
(also available at Archive of Our Own here
) - a crossover between Corpse Bride
and the "Alice" games put out by EA and American McGee (not "Otherlands," since this was started way before the shorts). As of this writing, the series is not yet completed, with two main stories and two side stories up in full, and the third main story coming to completion. EDIT: First through third in the main arc are up, along with four side stories!
It's pretty hard to avoid spoilers about what happens during the series what with the way I play him, but I'll be putting all the descriptions of what happens during the main arc behind cuts nonetheless.The Original Canons:

This got longer than I expected, so a quick short answer before I get into the meat of things: Victor's usually from early January 1876
, between the fourth and fifth stories of his canon. His most common variants for memes involve him having a pet, typically his fire lizard Moonlight.( Surprisingly Thorough, And With Story Spoilers )
And now I hope you know exactly what you're in for!
