Caption Edit

"Kill the White Rabbit."


The chapter begins with a prologue: "Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Suddenly, a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close to her. When the White Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, then hurried on, Alice started to her feet. She suddenly remembered that she had not seen such a strange thing before. Alice ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the edge."

Alice is still in confusion with his name "Alice." It is explained that the name "Alice" is the only thing that he has since he came to Wonderland. At the Queen's castle, Alice intends to shoot her with the gun the Mad Hatter gave him, as the Queen "ordered" him to kill the White Rabbit, while holding his chin with her scythe. Alice was, then, comforted by the Queen which resulted to the Knave of Hearts' "jealousy." The Queen further explained that the Regrets are foolish beings that have some connection with their past. Suddenly, a swarm of Regrets appear at the windows of the castle. Now nameless, they were once candidates of "Alice of Wonderland," and were unable to fulfill their goals of murdering the White Rabbit and becoming Alice of Wonderland.

The Queen then declares that Alice is the 89th Alice, with the hope that he, would be Alice of Wonderland. Alice shoots the Queen but nothing happens at all, as the Queen stands there, unfazed and unharmed. Alice gets irritated, saying that he did not come to Wonderland to kill someone.

Suddenly, he hallucinates with a figure of himself laughing. Behind him, a blonde lady sitting in a chair appears, persuading him for wanting a name. She says that he may become "Alice" if he kills her, and he will become satisfied.

He continues to question himself, if that is the reason why he came to Wonderland. Alice fires his gun and tries shooting the Queen, only for a crack to appear on the window behind, as the bullet hits it.

The Queen tells that in Wonderland, a person can kill someone according to the power that their name holds. She says that being the Queen of Hearts, she can have "anyone who disobeys her, beheaded". She explains that "Alice can kill the White Rabbit. On the other hand, the White Rabbit is unable to kill anyone." She also warns that if Alice disobeys her orders, she will behead him. Alice agrees that he will follow her orders; he asks the Queen if she will reward him after killing the White Rabbit.

Alice goes outside the castle and the Mad Hatter was there, waiting for him. He thought of what the Queen told him about the Mad Hatter that he would be a good partner to him who can kill anyone who is hostile towards Alice. Alice is then determined to kill the White Rabbit to live the way he wants in the country. Again, the Mad Hatter reminded Alice that it's already six o'clock for teatime. He tells Alice that he is a little more interested in what kind of a person he is which makes Alice say to him that it's because he is Alice of Wonderland. The lady in the chair grieves over her name taken, for it is the reason of her existence.

Elsewhere, Alice turns back as his name is called but Mad Hatter bonks him over the head, while scolding him for looking back; as he would be again attacked by Regret. The lady in the chair once again appears out of nowhere, saying that without a name, she'll disappear.


Trivia and ErrorsEdit

  • The term "dog-ear" addresses the folding of a page's corner to remember your location.  Adding it toegther with "89th", the number the current Alice holds as the 89th contender for the name, explains the title of the chapter.
  • After being seen taking his gun out, Alice drops the revolver.  The Queen kneels down and reassures Alice, and while the Knave moves to open the curtain behind the throne, the Queen gives Alice the revolver that he dropped.
  • In the CD drama, Alice never attempts to shoot the Queen, nor sees the lady in the chair, a mysterious flash back, or anything of the sort.  It, instead, goes straight to Alice negotiating with the Queen over living in Wonderland after the game is over.
  • Jack's outfit mysteriously has become black, but the tattoos under the Queen of Heart's eye remain white.
  • When shot at, the Queen continues to smile and doesn't react at all.
