A Witch's Hat"Did you hear?"A Witch's Hat9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"The Wicked witch is DEAD!"
"Hurray! The Witch is..."
Dead. Dead. Dead.
Glinda had tuned out the cries of celebration and merriment hours ago, but that one small, ferociously powerful word lingered with her still.
She had to wonder, if they all had the so called Witch's dieing screams playing over and over again in their head, a haunting broken record, would they still be celebrating so?
Probably. When people had hard times saddled upon their shoulders, they always looked for someone or something to foist the fault on. Elphaba, dearest Elphie, green skinned, snarky, revolutionist that she was made the perfect scapegoat. It was easy to blame a wicked person. It was easy to shirk off the death of one they had come to think of as unfeeling and cruel.
It'd been an awful thing, the worst sort of death they could give one with Elphie's particular ailments. What agony she had went through in those last moments, Glinda couldn't fathom.
But she could imagine.

From Wicked to Tin Man Pt. 1 Taipa struggled to keep herself airborne as she fought against the powerful eastern winds. Her little wings were no match for the fierce gales and she could feel her energy diminishing. Auntie had warned her against flying so far from home like this; now she was beginning to wish she had heeded that advice. She was still just a young bird, only having flown for the first time a few months ago. Her confidence had turned to pride, however, and now here she was.From Wicked to Tin Man Pt. 15 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
A sudden gust nearly knocked her out of the sky, but she used every bit of strength she had to keep from falling to her doom. She knew she had to land somewhere soon before her wings gave out, but she had no idea where she was. The clouds around her were grey and thick, and for all she knew she could be above a lake. Birds were not built to swim. Or even worse, she could be over the huge desert that Auntie had told her about in her scary stories!

"Mona," said a voice from below, "she'll be back soon." Mona hopped back down to the lower branch, fidgeting slightly.
"But what if something happened to her? She's never been gone for so long before!"
"Well we've both known her long enough to know how headstrong she is. She wants to test her limits and explore, but I know she's still young enough to want to return home too."
"I'm assuming you know this from experience, Miss Elphaba?" teased Mona, breaking from her tense mood for a moment. The green woman laughed.
"You could say that," she said, shrugging her shoulders. Mona chirped a laugh as well, but then turned her attention back to the darkening sky.

"But Elphie, it's traditional!"
"I'm not much for tradition, and besides, I clash with everything, and I DETEST pink!"
"You are NOT wearing your ratty black frock to our wedding!"
"Well, what other than black will look good on me?!"
"Purple goes good with green."
"Oh, fine! But I'M picking the shade of purple."
"No you are not! If I let you do that, you'd show up for our special day in the darkest purple you could find!"
"UGH, whatEVER! But if you try to force me into a hoopskirt or something else frilly that you wear all the time, I WILL turn you into a frog, Glinda!"
"No, you won't, because you love me."
"Oh, go teach Chistery some new words, Fae. That always puts you in a better mood."
As Long As You're Mine "Let's go!" Fiyero yelled over his shoulder as he grabbed Elphaba's hand and pulled her out of the throne room. Elphaba looked back over at Glinda one last time, and immediately regretted it. It was only a glimpse, but she could see all too well the betrayed look in her friend's eyes. That look would be burned into her memory forever. For now, however, she turned her head back to the hallway that she and Fiyero were sprinting down. Two guards were coming back to the throne room, one carrying a large bucket of water. They both looked shocked to see their captain and the Wicked Witch of the West running towards them.As Long As You're Mine5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"HALT!" yelled the guard without the bucket, raising his gun as he realized what was happening. Elphaba let go of her broom and Fiyero's hand to raise her own, chanting quickly.

"What did you say?" she managed, barely above a whisper. She wasn't sure if she had heard Taipa correctly.
"I shouldn't tell strangers where I live?" the little bluebird asked, tilting her head to one side. Glinda shook her head.
"No, what you said after that. What did you say your Auntie's name was?"
"Oh, Auntie Elphie," Taipa repeated, and Glinda felt her breath catch in her throat. So she hadn't imagined it after all. Her thoughts whirled even faster. Could it really be Elphaba? No she had seen her melt, had heard that awful shriek of pain. But still an idea came to her, a foolproof way of knowing if it was the same Elphie.

Wicked weddingShe should have looked horrible in that dress as she walked down the ale. It looked like it was tailored is by spiders. There was a huge web across the chest with a black rose in the center and webbings going down the white skirt. I told her everyone looks good in white I still can't believe that she agreed, this white dress, a nice break from her normal black. I know she'd wanted an unusual wedding dress and the spider webs are more beautiful than I would have imagined however the spider web vial was overkill.

Youre with Galinda, and she is all youll ever need.

After much persuading, Elphaba finally relieved "My father hates me."
Galinda gasped, she couldn't imagine a father hating his own daughter.

Her father inhaled deeply, trying to control himself.

"Why?" she retorted "Because she's green?"
Elphaba was standing just outside the closed door to her sister's room which Nessarose and their father, Frex were in. She looked down at her arms and legs. Why did she have to be born like this? If she hadn't been green, Nessa wouldn't be crippled and their mother might have still been alive. A t

"No. I'm not." The slightly muffled disembodied voice of her roommate says to her, and Glinda knows that she should giggle but somehow she fins that she just can't.
It's been a long, long day.
Ama Clutch died (and Glinda feels a stab of pain and guilt in her heart when she thinks of her) and they had held a service for her. Glinda can't remember a time when she has cried so hard.
'It's your fault, you know. Her mind hisses to her. 'It's your fault that she died the way she did.
"Shut up." Glinda tells her mind.
"Nothing, Elphie." Glinda mumbles, flushing in the darkness, realizing that her admonishment was said aloud.
They fall into silence again and Elphaba breaks it as she tells Glinda "Sleep. Your body will thank you for it in the morning."
Though she knows Elphaba can't see it, Glinda nods. She closes her eyes and instantly, her mind assaults her with images of Ama Clutch,

- I totally trust her too, Glin, I just don't trust him - Elphie sat on her bed for a couple seconds, but then she stood up again.
- Maybe she's safe and asleep in her room already.
- She promised she'd come by whenever she got home.
Glinda rolled her eyes and tried to sleep again. Elphie restarted walking around the room.
It was 2AM and Nessa wasn't home. She had let her younger sister go out with that munchkin boy, Boq, just because she seemed to like him very much and he seemed to be a decent guy. But she told her she'd have to be home early, and early means around 11PM, not after midnight. When Elphaba thought of everything that random guy could be doing with her sister, she simply felt like dropping everything and finding a broom to fly out of the window until she finds them and gets rid of him. But Nessa would never forgive her.
AllTheThingsSheSaid-Gelphie 10As Elphaba tried again to think of what to write in her letter, she glanced over at the sleeping pink mound. She looked so frail and defenseless, almost like a porcelain doll. Elphaba looked down at her paper and crossed out what she had written, frustrated. Running slightly late, she wrote a quick note and left it on her bed. She hadnt had time, nor words, to write what she had wanted to. She hoped the blonde would find comfort in the little shed managed to put on paper, but doubted it. She would probably wind up with multiple tear-burns on her by the end of the day. She pushed the thought out of her head and strode more quickly to Doctor Dillamonds classroom, hoping he would be there early.AllTheThingsSheSaid-Gelphie 107 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

The road was a bit bumpy, but he didn't mind all that much. In fact, it helped lull him to sleep. The drive had been long, and he wasn't very patient. The daytime hours were dull enough when he was free to do whatever he wanted too. For a moment he wondered just how long he would last at this new school. He pushed the thought aside and drifted back to sleep.
The next thing the prince was aware of was the sound of an angry girl yelling at him.
"Do you realize who this is?" he heard Avaric say. The prince peaked an eye open. Standing in front of him was a tall, lanky girl whose skin was as green as grass. Her face was green, her hands were green, and he could only assume that the rest of her was green as well. Was everyone at Shiz this color?

Fiyero opened the door at the sound of Elphaba's voice. He had never actually set foot inside the dorm room before – when he came to pick Galinda up for a date, she'd usually hurry to the door to meet him. He couldn't help smiling to himself. What secrets would he learn about her? Was she messy? Did she have embarrassing pictures on her walls?
There was nothing messy at all about the room, however. Galinda's side was neat, her extensive wardrobe lined up neatly in her closet, her shoes perfectly straight, and her pink, frilly bed made. Elphaba's side appeared even neater, but that was only because there wasn't much there – besides the book-lined shelves, she only had a few simple dresses.
Elphaba was sitting on her bed, absorbed in a book. She looked especially green in the lamp from her bedside table, and she didn't even honor him with a look to see who he was. "Galinda's not

She stopped at the closed door, there was no reason to leave. She swiftly stalked the other way, only to end up staring out to where that air-headed roomie of hers had gone off to. In no time at all she was pacing the short distance of the room, agitated that she couldnt find peace in the solitude. She wanted to be out there, learning, no matter how bundled-up she might have to be. She wanted to give quick comebacks to the ignorant children, help Dr.Dillamond with his research, and explain the classwork step-by-step to that Galinda.

"And how am I supposed to help you with that?" Elphaba arched a brow at her, amused.
"Let's play a game!" Galinda gasped, clapping her hands together in excitement. Elphaba's eyes widened and quickly she turned back to her book, immersing herself in the pages once again.

She listened idly for them to pass by, no doubt running for their new perfume or some other such nonsense. But the footsteps slowed and came to a halt outside her door. There was a muffled knock, and Elphaba opened the door a crack to see who was calling before letting them in. Knowing her roommate, she had probably told all her friends that the green girl was in her room, alone. She did a double take when she saw -not malicious children- but a petite, flustered blonde outside the door, holding a meal tray in each hand.
