SCENE: The shiny, new, custom-built SMOOTH OPERATORS CLUBHOUSE, which may or may not exist solely in INVERTED-JABBERWOCKY’S mind.

NATURETHEZAFARA troops downstairs into the basement to see INVERTED-JABBERWOCKY sitting at a desk, feverishly writing notes and muttering to herself.  To her left, music from Puccini’s La Bohème blares out of a rusted gramophone; to her right sit three television sets, each simultaneously displaying three markedly different productions of the opera, along with a fourth which displays Mozart’s The marriage of Figaro, for no apparent reason.
INVERTED-JABBERWOCKY: It’s clear as day that she’s a manic pixie dream girl, but how to best illustrate that in a world where everyone else is at least halfway there themselves . . . ?

Descent
       She sank like a stone.
       The lake was called Despair.  It was almost poetic, Ahiru thought, that she was drowning in a lake born of her own emotions.
       Certainly, that very same despair pervaded each disjointed memory that drifted through her mind – screaming Rue’s name as she gave herself to the Raven; tearing desperately at the pendant that refused to unclasp from around her neck; a vague awareness of Fakir’s words guiding her every action.
       Ahiru dragged her eyes open against the water around her.  The world was blue, grey, black, shadowy.  Her pendant drifted in and out of view, gleaming ruddily in the murky light – the final fragment of the prince’s shattered heart.

Everything I know in life, I learned from opera
La Bohème – If a guy repeatedly tells you that you’re no good for him and leaves you, he clearly doesn’t mean it.  Also, you’ve probably got some awful terminal illness.
Die Walküre – Not only is incest a-okay, it’s also a sure-fire way to make your future child a veritable superhero.
Un ballo in maschera – Don’t bother trying to screw with your own destiny, as it will most likely screw you over in return.
Così fan tutte – All women are pathologically incapable of remaining faithful to one partner.  No exceptions.
Madama Butterfly – If you’re stupid enough to trust a foreigner, you probably deserve to die.
Don Giovanni – Murder and copious amounts of sex are probably not such a great idea in the long run.
La traviata – A man’s reputation will always be inf
