''Through a Looking Glass, Darkly'' is a DarkerAndEdgier fanfic retelling of [[{{Series/Alice}} Syfy's Alice]], itself a DarkerAndEdgier retelling of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''. [[SpoileredRotten Spoilers for that series will abound on this page.]] It follows a storyline that is pretty common in every version of a tale that takes place DownTheRabbitHole: What if Alice had grown up in Wonderland?

It worked well enough that he began to believe that Grace no longer existed, and considered his engagement a purely political one. [[IGotBetter Grace got better]], though.]]

The story follows Alice, mainly called Jelly or Jellybean, a Ten of Spades, as she turns to the Resistance when her father begins to go mad. It has plenty of [[{{Flashback}} flashback]] to Jellybean's childhood, and also does a lot to flesh out the [[{{Mooks}} Suits']] way of life.
