Okay, here's one for EAT, just because it keeps stopping me from posting: FLOOD CONTROL.

Baker and Bellman have their own names for the Fears they have encountered:

The Rake is called the BANDERSNATCH.

The Choir is called the JUBJUB.

EAT is called the POOL OF TEARS.

The Slender Man is, of course, the JABBERWOCK.

And the Archangel is the LITTLE CROCODILE and the Blind Man is the AGED AGED MAN.

And, of course, the Empty City is WONDERLAND.

Not the CHESSBOARD?

The Rake, I assume, would be the SNARK...

Hmm, maybe.

Actually, I reconsidered and the LITTLE CROCODILE is the Cold Boy. The Rake being a Snark could work, except Snarks and Boojums are different. I was thinking proxies could be Snarks.

...Why is the distinction between Snarks and Boojums relevant? You haven't named anything BOOJUM yet...

Who are the BEAVER, WALRUS, and CARPENTER?

For that matter, who is ALICE? (The Manufactured Newborn?) Or the RED KING?

The WALRUS and the CARPENTER are the Archangel and the Wooden Girl. Think about it: they both control people, like the Walrus and Carpenter did with the clams.

Of course, Baker and Bellman haven't encountered all the Fears yet, so they don't have names for some of them.
