When the day becomes the night, and the sky becomes the sea, then the clock strikes heavy and there’s no time for tea. And in our darkest hour, before my final rhyme, they will come home back to Wonderland and turn back the hands of time.
According to fan/canon, Eckert and Reginald have a mutual dislike of the Mad T-Party’s Hatter. I can only imagine (through amusing sketches) what would happen if Tarrant opened with a line like this.
(My current dream in life is for Briannacherrygarcia to see this, say ‘that is a hilarious joke but the art sucks,’ and redraw it in her own fabulous style. As it is, I referenced her art of Eckert and Reginald when I did their faces. I had no reference for Tarrant.)
Adding headcanon to the gathered fan-canon about Eckert and Reg: Reginald often forgets what Eckert’s name is.
