Original work. Personal creation, not for novel books.

But I had fabricate a horrible script with my horrible writing ability in some where,hum.. do you like to see some with my horrible English? (ΦωΦ) It's a simplified version. But the original is not too long. After all, I'm not a professional writer.

It told a young disability prostitute with prosthesis arms called Dorothy, was taken away by a time storm, into the mystic steampunk land called Oz. Her caravan killed the Wicked Witch of the North.

The Good Witch of the East lend her Silver Shoes that can set-back a short time, to thank her for helping destroy the Munchkin Dwarfs (They are cannibals. The East Witch told.) The Good Witch tells Dorothy that the only way she can return home is go to the Emerald City and beat the wicked and cunning Wizard of Oz, take over his Hyperspace Telephone Booth.

So the adventures began. On the way Dorothy met:

The Spy, Scarecrow, a floating plant man, sent by The Good Witch of the East. He have no brain, hunting other animals digging out the nervous system for his own use. He can do some Groot things, but his most powerful skill is mind control.

The Killer, robot Tin-800, secret mission by the "Good" Witch of the South. Said himself is heartless, don't be too close to him. In reality after the completion of the first task, he will do the hidden second task: terminate Dorothy, take the shoes.

The Liar, Madlion, a failed transformation magelion, expelled from The Wicked Witch of the West. He likes pretend to be a coward, but actually his brain surgery worked too well, he can tearing everything only with his mind. He hates humans so much.

Looks they had the similar objective, but each with thier own axe to grind.

And Toto, a dogskin stuffed doll with a dark background story of our heroine.

Maybe you don't really want to know the rest...it get bad.

After they killed The Wicked Witch of the West, gained Wizard's trust. They completely destroyed the Wizard (a huge machine head) in a massive battle. Then their false friendship broke up. The East Witch's plot was to let them kill each other. At the end, Dorothy killed them all. The Guardian (a young man which always be good to Dorothy before) take the breakdown girl enter the Hyperspace Telephone Booth, it is the duty booth outside the palace. They set out for time travel to get rid of the East Witch.

Things are going to the positive part... no, it get worse.

The Good Witch of the East found them. She IS the old Dorothy, the only one who really cares Dorothy, herself. Dorothy will be betraied by OZ the swindler, who will pretend to married her, will leave her at the edge of the world, will steal her shoes away, will get married with the Witch of the South, will be the king of OZ. Through years of pain and suffering, the old Dorothy will become villain, finally revenge on them and their little daughter, take the booth and shoes, back to the begining.

The worst part have not coming.

The wicked Wizard of Oz, is Dorothy's father, rejuvenated by Dorothy's mother, West Witch, from the future. No matter where they send their daughter away, she will come back to this endless time cycle tragedy, that can't be avoided.

In the ugly time, the black twist happened.

The young Dorothy is not the one they thought. She is not the unsophisticated Dorothy from Kansas farm, but from another drakest timeline where the world prematurely into the industrial revolution, a world all people handheld a Difference Engine Information Terminal no longer care about others, began to be ruled by machines. Her parents died in the First Anti Intelligent Machine War, her uncle and aunt never love her, killed the stray dog she picked up, send her to Kansas factory do child labor, after mistaken operation sliced off her arms, her guardians brought out the damages, threw her out.

This steampunk OZ is so simply naive to her. With the spy the killer the liar she already found out, for the first time her feeling like home. The killed each other show was a fake, finally find out the truth, the four team up again. Dorothy-team vs. Dorothy-max.

“There is No timelines like home.” In happy ending, Scarecrow revived Straw Dog Toto.

After the tornado, people found her body, holding a dog doll, smiled.

Thanks for DD again (o ° ω ° O ) ! Thank you for all your visit~
