Fringe Alice by Apple in decay

Desvendando os mistérios do pôster de Fringe AQUI

Fringe é o meu seriado de TV predileto. Olivia Dunham é uma Alice incrível, atravessando portais para realidades paralelas, acreditando em seis coisas impossíveis antes do café da manhã, como ensinou a Rainha Branca no livro do espelho.

Adorei encontrar esse paralelo muito pertinente e divertido entre as aventuras de Alice e os desafios de Olivia.

Fringe is my favorite TV series. Olivia Dunham is an incredible Alices across portals to parallel realities, believing six impossible things before breakfast, as taught by the White Queen in the Looking Glass book.

I loved finding this clever and entertaining parallel between Alice's adventures and the challenges of Olivia.

Chapter 1: Follow the White Rabbit.
Alice - Olivia Dunham
White Rabbit - John Scott

Alice follows a white clothed rabbit and by falling through its rabbit hole enters Wonderland.

Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waist-coat-pocket, or a watch to out of it, and, burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.
In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get again.

Olivia follows John Scott to the Wonderland of Fringe-science. Her fall is long and deep.

Interlude: The Pool of Tears.
Alice cries in her misery of being lost. Through her own tears she swims further into Wonderland.

"I wish I hadn’t cried so much!" said Alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out. 'I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears! That will be a queer thing, to be sure! However, everything is queer to-day.’

Olivia mourns her loss and in her quest to find answers she dives deeper into this curious new world.

Chapter 2: Smokin' Caterpillar

Caterpillar - Phillip Broyles

Alice finds a hookah-smoking caterpillar and admits to him her current identity-crisis. He gives her wise advice.

"The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice.
"Who are you?"said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, "I-I hardly now, Sir, just at present – at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then."
"What do you mean by that?" said the Caterpillar, sternly. "Explain yourself!"
"I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, Sir," said Alice, "because I’m not myself, you see.”
"I don’t see," said the Caterpillar."

Broyles guides Olivia on her way to solve the riddles of Wonderland and to find herself.
Preferably so in smoky jazzbars.

Chapter 3: I’m not Mad or Meet the Cheshire Cat.

Cheshire Cat - Peter Bishop

Alice is lost and asks the Cheshire Cat for directions.

"But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here."

On her way Olivia asks Peter for directions. He leads her to the house of madness.

Chapter 4: A Mad Tea Party.

Hatter - Walter Bishop
March Hare - Astrid Farnsworth
Dormouse - Gene the Cow

The Hatter and the Dormouse welcome their guest with riddles and puzzles.

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?"
"Come we shall have some fun now!" thought Alice. "I’m glad they’ve begun asking riddles – I believe I can guess that," she added aloud.
"Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?" said the March Hare.
"Exactly so," said Alice.
"Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on.
"I do," Alice hastily replied; "at least – at least I mean what I say – that’s the same thing, you know."
"Not the same thing a bit!" said the Hatter. "Why, you might just as well say that 'I see what I eat' is the same thing as 'I eat what I see'!"

Olivia finds herself in the company of mad Dr. Bishop and Astrid. Together they not only pose riddles but solve them.

Alice encounters the sad Mock Turtle.
They had not gone far before they saw the Mock Turtle in the distance, sitting sad and lonely on a little ledge of rock, and, as thex came nearer, Alice could hear him sighing as if his heart would break. She pitied him deeply.
"What is his sorrow?" she asked the Gryphon.
And the Gryphon answered, very nearly in the same words as before, "It’s all fancy, that: he hasn’t got no sorrow, you know. Come on!"

On her adventures in Wonderland Olivia is witness to many sad stories.

Chapter 5: Don’t lose your Head or The Court of the Queen of Hearts.
Knave of Hearts - Charlie Francis
Queen of Hearts - Nina Sharp

The Knave of Hearts is on trial at the court of the Queen of Hearts. Alice jumps to his defense for the ridiculousness of the Queens trial.

“Sentence first – verdict afterwards."
"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice loudly. "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won’t!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
"Who cares for you?" said Alice. "You’re nothing but a pack of cards!"

Olivia challenges the power of Massive Dynamic.

Chapter 6: Leaving Wonderland.
Alice wakes up to find her adventures being a dream. Nevertheless it will be not her last visit to Wonderland.

Through the Looking-Glass
and what Alice found there...

Olivia leaves for a new and even darker Wonderland. Will she find herself and her strength to find her way back home or will she stay imprisoned in the darkness?
