When the Bridge was closed and Fringe Division changed its mission, knowledge of the Other Side not only remained highly classified, but agents were on strictest notice never to discuss the alternate universe with anyone outside their own unit.
But more and more, Olivia found herself telling stories of Over There to Etta at bedtime – disguised as fairy tales about a vague faraway world where where there were rocket flights to the Moon, and where everyone traveled on zeppelins, and where everyone’s secret twin lived.
As Etta grew up, she knew it was all just a fairy tale, but part of her still believed it was true. What if there was another world? What if she had a secret twin? And she never stopped being crazy about zeppelins.
It didn’t work.
This is just a fill-in of backstory, related to why Etta might have wanted to stow away in the White Tulip Machine. I would like to develop some of these sketches further.
