Fridge: Namesake

Fridge Brilliance

  • So far, the known Namesakes and their “worlds” are: Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Jack (Jack and the Beanstalk), Wendy (Peter Pan), and Dorothy (The Wizard of Oz). What do all these characters do in their respective stories? They're people from the “normal” world who go to far-away lands and change things while they're there. Hence the premise of the comic.

Fridge Horror

  • When telling the story of the Dorothies they say that they "never age but always die" and in the monument to the Dorothies, we see a ton a skeletons this could be taken to mean that almost all of the Dorothies since the original have died in Oz...which is to say that they never went home.
  • In this version of Wonderland, Jack has a full deck of cards in his pocket, all of which turn into soldiers. In the original ''Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'' , the deck of cards makes up not only the Queen of Hearts' army but her entire court. Only the clubs are soldiers; the spades are gardeners and the diamonds are courtiers. The hearts, though? Those are the Queen's children. Suddenly Fred's youthful appearance seems a tad less cute - it could just be a stylistic choice for an ageless character, or he could actually be that young.
