Prompt: Time paradox

{{A/N: Yes, this is a [ profile] charloft prompt response. I usually only post these on the community itself, but as this is the longest piece I've written for Alice so far I thought I'd put it here as well. I’m not really sure how canonical this is, but I’ll just blame it on the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey-ness of the prompt. ^_^ That being said, I’m still not certain how the Rabbit recognises older!Alice ... }}

After a full day of unbirthday parties (three this afternoon), bread-and-butterfly chases, and general mischief, Alice was beginning to grow tired. She had been visiting Wonderland—the strange realm she found four months ago. It was a fantastic place, especially for such a curious child. As she was in danger of nodding off into her soup (rather like the Dormouse), the White Rabbit decided it was time for Alice to go home.

He led her to the little door that was her usual gateway between the dissimilar worlds of Oxford and Wonderland (Alice had yet to find the door on her own) and sent her through with a little wave and an entreaty to come back soon. Generally, this door would take her to the large tree in the Deanery garden.

Today, however, Alice found herself on her dressing-table (“How curious!” she thought). Even more curious was that her own room was already occupied. At Alice’s sudden entrance (presumably through the looking-glass), the lady sitting on her bed looked up from her book with an “Oh!” of surprise.

In which two Alices are surprised, intrigued, and inevitably have tea )
