Rabbits in hats, that’s wonderful
I just wonder if that purple top hat cost that rabbit 5 shillings and three pence.
If he’s surprised with rabbits wearing hats, how is he going to react when one of the rabbits pulls a large pocketwatch out of his waistcoat pocket?
(Obtuse reply) I don’t think either rabbit is wearing a waistcoat.
Hahaha. Log tables.
That sign should probably say “No trees-passing”
(Psst… I doubt anyone else noticed the slight typo in the second panel or even cares, but I thought would let you know about it anyway. It should say “used to be before,” not efore. Then again you could just put an apostrophe behind it to make it sound like an British accent, I guess.)
Traditionalist rabbits will also have waistcoats and pocket watches.
Those rosesnips are blooming so flerpticiously. The rabbits picked a delectable place for tea. :3
Excuse me that alt text breaks the Geneva convention
Hmmm, how about seeing from the inside out, then? A close look at the night sky, with some appropriate tools, should get any interested parties an idea of Wonderlands position rather easily. Unless the spells distort the relation of *time* between inside and out as well, of course.
And the Wonderland side of the Finns’ entry looks pretty permanent and obvious, what with the tree framing it, the sign indicating private-ish property, and its own paved path leading up to it. Ms Finn said that it’s supposedly nontrivial to get *back out* of Wonderland, too, so what surprises await the unauthorized wannabe-users of this exit?
a family of angry griffins
[booby-trapped exit is henceforth known as “the Griffin Door”]
[… speaking of incomprehensible connections between Wonderland and Hogwarts ;-) ]
Do we know if that access from Wonderland is visible, when the mirror is turned ‘off’ ?
I would say that at least the sign should remain visible – for there’s no need for it to even be there if it were visible only while someone’s using the mirror/tree. And conclude that “enough” of the paved path ought to remain visible as well.
So, yes, we could theorize that there’s a *heap* of magic thrown in so as to have the tree replaced with something you cannot simply walk into while the access isn’t used … say, a pond. Personally, I’ld still worry what’ld happen to someone taking a (forbidden) swim when the pond gets tree-ified by a wannabe user from the other side …
The sign staying there all the time, definitely.
I was more thinking that the tree, looks like a tree, when the mirror is turned off, rather than a tree with a hole looking into a far larger room.
Might be. In that case, replace “take a swim” by “carve a heart+initials” or “harvest some Wonderlandish-weird fruit” or “climb up it” or “be in dire need of firewood” or …
All I’m saying is that “invisible” doesn’t imply “inaccessible”, especially when the party seeking to leave Wonderland unauthorized is a *local* and might have *seen* the gateway in use over the years.
Could work by a “somebody elses problem” field, SEP would work. Also Wonderland moves around a lot (see Alice) and perhaps if you walk far enough in one direction you just come out at the other end of Wonderland again.
“Spells that make it impossible to see from the outside.” A lot of that going on in England.
Be funny if Hogwarts and Wonderland were about half a mile from each other and neither one knew it.
Jimmy still hasn’t recieved his letter for the magic school of witchcraft and wizardry though…
J. K. Rowling once said in an interview that Hogwarts is set in Scotland.

Hey Kory how long does it take for orders to be delivered after we ordered them?
It depends on when I send them out, but usually one to two weeks if it’s a domestic order. International orders go through the Void and I have no idea how to predict when they’ll show up.

This page is just… comfy <3
I am pretty amused by both the possibility that there are just magic trees growing in cube shapes with checkered patterns and humans just totally missed them and the one that Wonderlanders just indulged in some magic botany to go out of their way to create them.
(I hope we see some young Rupert and/or Eleanor in this chapter, I love them to bits. C: )
My guess is that when you drop so many powerful spells on a town weird things start to happen. Like Tim said – most creatures might well have started as mistakes that just kept going.

I love this! And the rabbits are so cute.
