After Oz

AFTER OZ
BY Lili
Back Story (this is all interpreted by me) This is also all musicalverse. I still have yet to read the books.
After Fiyero and Elphaba left Oz, they found an abandoned 2 story house where they live happily. When Elphaba turned Fiyero into a scarecrow, then gave the book to Galinda, a bit of the magic from Fiyero leaked out and disappeared. In that way the magic that leaked out was a magic that made Fiyero keep his memories. Once the magic was gone, it was harder for Fiyero to keep his memories. So, after a few days he would lose most of them. And keep in mind he is still a scarecrow.

I wanted to give both Elphaba and Fiyero a more vulnerable side. Fiyero is a prince and was used to having people do things for him, and elphaba had to let rude comments not pierce her, and get through her skin. So, I wanted to give them a more vunrable side and I hope I did a good job representing it in these chapters.
We will name the characters through initials. Fiyero is represented by the letter F and Elphaba, an E
Prologue
F: Come on Elphaba, we have to go!
E: But, we won’t ever be able to come back to Oz!
F: If we want to stay alive, we have to go now!
E: Okay!

Chapter 1
Learning to Walk… Again
F: (Tries to stand up by himself, falls back down) Ugh! Why is this so hard?!
E: (chuckles) It’s ok my love. Come here ( picks F off the ground and holds him upright) okay, no, One Foot In Front Of The other, and we will be walking the whole day long.
F: (Unsteady even though Elphaba is holding him up) Uh, ok. One foot in front of the other and we will be walking the whole day long.
E: (Happy Fiyero is getting it) That’s it! You got it!
F: (Happily laughing) Haha, I’m doing it!! ( gets unsteady and falls, angrily he says) Good Oz!!
E: ( Her face falls to see him unhappy) Hey, are you Ok?
F: (Angrily) No! I used to handsome and REAL! I used to be able and know how to walk!
E:(A little hurt, but wanting to comfort) Hey, you know, I can’t change what I did right?
F:(resigned) Yes,
E:(still trying to be comforting) and you know I wish I could reverse it to make you feel better right?
F:( Still resigned)Yes.
E:(Being very comforting) And you know I love you even if you’re a goat, munchkin, monkey, or frog right?
F:(His spirits lightened) Yes. ( chuckles)
( Elphaba and Fiyero share a short, meaningfull kiss. )
E: Now, are you ready to try again?
F: (takes a deep, calm and centering breath) Yes.
E: Ok, now,(grunting but smiling) let’s try again. (While Elphaba is holding Fiyero up on his wobbly legs, they chuckle for a bit and then bask in the beauty of being in each others arms)
E: Ready?
F: yes.
E: One foot
F: ( a little unsure) One foot
E: Now the next
F: (Still unsure) Now, the next.
E: Now keep going!
F: ( laughs) Im doing it!
E: (laughs with him) Yes! You’re doing it!
(Elphaba and Fiyero spend quite sometime doing this motion, so Fiyero can get a feel for it)
E:(Laughs) Ok, you lost a lot of hay, time for a fill up?
F: (A little tired) Yeah, can we walk back though? I like the movement.
E: ( chuckles contentedly and lovingly) ok. (Elphaba gives him a quick peck on the cheek) Do you want to try it by yourself?
F: ( pauses to think about it) Yes!
E: ok, ( loosens grip on Fiyero) are you sure?
F: Yes!
E: ok! ( lets go completely)
F: ( wobbling and arms flailing) woah, woah!
E: (unsure) are you ok?
F: Yes! One, foot in front of the other
E: You’re doing it!
F: one foot, in front, of the other,
E: ( getting excited) Yes ! YES!
F: ( Also really excited, looks at Elphaba, his eyes abright with gratitude, life, love and happines) I’m doing it!!
E: Yes you are! ( notices a rock and her face drops ) wait watc-
F:( Trips and tumbles down a hill while losing a lot of hay and finally lands)
E:( Runs to him, concerned) are you ok?
F: ( deafeated) yeah, but now, I wont be able to walk!
E: ( lovingly, but a little confused) why is that?
F: ( getting whiny) because I barely have any hay left! And we don’t know where to get more!
E: (Gently pulls Fiyero’s chin towards her, with a hand on his back, so he doesn’t flop) hey, it’ll be ok. I’m here supporting you. I love you my prince. And even if I have to strap you to my back in order to carry you around, I will still love you. Don’t be sad. Im here. ( Elphaba kisses Fiyero on the lips while they hug,
E: Now, ready to get home? ( Elphaba mounts Fiyero to her back and they walk on home, nipping and kissing each other, the whole way home.)

Hope you like it! I might post chapter 2 tomorrow!
