Fridge / Namesake

Go To

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.
  • The secret society devoted to protecting Namesakes is named Calliope. In Classical Mythology, Calliope is the muse of epic poetry.

Fridge Horror

  • 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.
    • This probably isn't true. Fred has stated he's never met the Queen of Hearts in a Q&A page. He states she's mean and thus has no desire to and she hasn't been in seen in years. Cards work for the Scissor men.
    • Confirmed that he's super young: A Q&A page w/him has him state he's three years old.

How well does it match the trope?
