I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them, and they help us in return. Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true, but I know I’m who I am today because I knew you.
but elphaba thropp adoting every single child she sees
let me reliterate
Elphaba and Glinda Thropp-Upland, on the run, prices on their heads, ru into street children. Elphaba cannot resist their cute faces. she adopts all of them.
So it becomes common knowledge among street kids that if you’re in trouble? go find the wicked witch. she will take you in. and not only will she take you in, she will love and cherish and adore you and take time just for you even with all the other kids.
And Elphabas got kids running to her after being kicked out of their houses for being queer or believe in Animal rights or anything and she has to be restrained from showing u to those kid’s houses and murdering their parents.
And yeah, the Wizard figures out and he sends some kid to go get her and invetibly the kid ends up loving Elphie and Glinda and it ends in a tearful confession of how they dont wanna go back and they like it here and can they please stay?? And Elphaba hugs them and thanks them for telling her and destroys the child’s connection to the Wizard.
and when dorothy gail storms elphabas home to kill the wicked witch, she is met with a hundred angry little kids who are yelling “dont you touch mommy!” and the older ones are guarding the door and ELphaba is screaming “NONONO YOURE GOING TO GET HURT!!!”
one of the children is hurt real bad by dorothy and Elphaba screams and the force of it richochets Dorothy back and Elphaba grabs the child and cradles his head and fixes his cut on his head and he hugs her and she hugs back and sends him off with one of the older chidren and then she turn to dorothy and shes like “it was a problem before. but you mess with me? ok. you mess with my wife? not too okay. But you just messed with my children.”
