Just found this community recently, and thought that my Girls Underground project might fit the theme in parts, especially since it was so heavily inspired by Alice in Wonderland:

From the description on my site:
Girls Underground is the name I chose to describe a certain archetype I've identified, primarily in modern stories but also originating in fairytales and even myths, which focuses on a female protagonist's initiatory journey. The core storyline is as follows:
A young girl, who is orphaned or has distant parents, enters the Otherworld/Underworld, often because of a foolish mistake or wish, most notably resulting from dissatisfaction with her life. She is initially aided or guided by a creature from that world. She usually acquires (or brings along) more than one companion, often otherworldly beings or animals, and together they navigate a strange path of labyrinthine nature. They are thwarted along the way by an adversary and the adversary's minions (a sort of complement to her companions). If the adversary is male (as he often is in the older archetype), there can be some romantic/sexual aspect to their relationship. During the journey, the girl is sometimes drugged, and/or spends some time forgetting herself. She interacts with people or things that are somehow connected to her 'normal' life at home, or briefly returns home in the middle of the journey. There is often an issue of time running out, or time behaves strangely. When she nears her goal (the rescue of a loved one, returning to her home, saving the world, or occasionally a personal transformation), she is separated from her companions for awhile, culminating in a one-on-one showdown with the adversary, which frequently involves exposing a fraud (and sometimes resisting his attempts at seducing her to his side). In the end, she is changed irrevocably.
The website has some examples from myth and fairytale, and the blog is my attempt to chronicle every example I've found so far (still in the process, with at least 40 more to go before I'm caught up with my current reading). Includes books by Carroll, Baum, and the Uptons. Hope you enjoy it!
