Alice’s shocked/embarrassed expression in panel 4 is ADORABLE. I feel so sorry for her in panel 6, though. Poor Alice.
Poor little thing.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, mighty suspicious that she didn’t know she was in a pond.
Also, may I smack Alice’s sister? With a chair, prefferably?
Quick! there’s a big one in the living room.
Mr. Dodgson’s expression in that third panel. Oh gosh, what a great expression. And i agree with Lady Kwake, i would very much like to smack Ina upside the head with something, dumb lady…
It is rather odd that Alice didn’t know she was in the pond though, perhaps it was a dream of some sort? Or she travelled between worlds in that brief moment of time before landing in the pond?
Like Emma, she gets little bits of “absences”.
MISTER DODGSON! I just…I can’t…ugh! In a pond with a young unmarried lady and- and- and…Oh, I need my snuffbox…
*laughs* You honestly should have seen the first take of the comic. I originally wrote in panel 4, “Let’s get you out of those clothes.” I posted the comic, looked and went, “Yeaaaaah, that’ll be taken the wrong way.” So, I changed the dialogue. Alice’s comment in panel 3 could have also been taken the wrong way, so I reworked it as well. Otherwise, Ina would have really hit the roof.
LOL. OH MISTAH DOOOOGSON. *fangirls*
Naw, but seriously, he’s a cool dude.
That was supposed to be my impression of Mister Darcy’s Aunt, but it was pretty hard to get across. Haha. Also perhaps not quite the right time period…I tried! Being witty is hard!
i motion three to smacking alice’s sister with something heavy.
my God is she a stuck up, frivolous, apperance-sake harpy…
She’s a perfectly proper woman of her time. Which I love.
Hey, wet nightgown contest!!! … sorry.
Alice is looking very confused, and quite cute there. If Dodgson were HER age it might be a nice match, but even in those days the age difference here is too much.
The age difference between Alice’s parents is 15 years. Charles Dodgson’s father married his first cousin. An age difference of 10-20 years still isn’t all that unheard of during the 19th century, or even now really. My eldest first cousin’s husband is also 12 years older than her.
My husband is 9 years older than me and my grandfather is 11 years older than my grandmother. Age is just a number.
Well, my wife’s grandmother was married at the age of 12. I don’t know how old her husband was but he was a working man holding down a job good enough for a family, so at least late teens even back then.
I dunno, I like the realism of Ina’s reactions.
Wonderful expressions all around on this page.
Ina is a proper lady.
Well, if even Alice doesn’t know what’s happening, then I’m officially lost. XD
I think only Dodgson is up to speed.
Don’t worry, Alice gets over that prudish streak when she winds up on the Riverworld.
Pack a bathing suit. One of those cool victorian ones.
“Ms. Ina, how DO you expect me to get her out of the pond? With a pool-net? Do you have one, or have they not been invented yet?”
Oh yeah, that gives away the secret that Mr. Dogson is actually a Time Lord and has a Tardis somewhere in the vicinity. =^-^=
I so want to see him drawn as a Time Lord now. =^-^=
So do I! Alice would make an awesome companion.
Or would Alice technically be the Time Lord and Lewis her companion?
i think the majority of us want to smack Ina…piñata anyone XD
doubt Mr. Dodgson would disagree with that face omg love it
Leave Alice alone, help her out of the water… MAKE UP YOUR MIND, Ina!!
“I called you here to HELP, Mr. Dodgson. Well, no, I came here to berate you for being somehow involved in making my sister… UNNATURAL, and since men never do anything except with the purpose of enticing young ladies into ruin, what else CAN I accuse you of?”
I can’t blame Ina at all for the tirade. I would find it absolutely obnoxious if I was there in person, but I am a product of my time as she is a product of hers. Frankly, with all the molesting of young (typically female) children, it isn’t strange at all to assume something happened! The idea of the hysterical woman had a basis that had nothing to do with genetics.
This makes me glad I don’t have sisters, I’d hate to be superiored at by one (superiored isn’t a word but I don’t have a clue why it isn’t, perfectly fine word if you ask me).
Lewis Carroll (your version) was remarkably calm for a man accused of behaving improperly with a young lady, but then to stand up and whack her with an overstuffed arm chair would certainly raise a few eyebrows.
Lovely artwork again as per usual and the writing is lovely and intriguing.
I also want to say- Older Alice is really, really pretty.
I love how long Alice’s hair is.
