okay so i just finished Out of Oz and I have some thoughts:
I hereby, once again, declare my undying love for Glinda Upland
there are over 200 pages where pretty much nothing happens except the gang dragging around the broken Time Dragon Clock all over Oz only to have it ride into a dead lake like the useless piece of garbage that it is. glad we all wasted our precious time on literally nothing.
I. H A T E Mr. Boss Dwarf.
Maguire still hasn’t lost his knack for never developing characters and skipping over literally any plotpoint whoop whoop. he did so well during Son of a Witch too….
I love Nor Tigelaar.
I love Nor Tigelaar so much I’m going to read Lion Among Men just for her because I like to suffer apparently
literally every Thropp is canonically queer. Elphaba’s queerness was so strong it seeped into the next two generations. what an icon.
La Mombey - the ruler of Munchkinland - has a sleigh.
Also I really could’ve done without the sex scene between two minors on the grave of someone they do not know in the shadows of the sAME ROOM LOYAL OZ IS SURRENDERING TO MUNCHKINLAND AS THEY ARE DOING IT??? wHYYY
Oh, and did I mention it’s basically implied that Elphaba rises from the death and rescues Glinda from Southstairs and they live happily ever after?? Because … it is implied that Elphaba rises from the death and rescues Glinda from Southstairs and I am going to SCREAM about this for days to come so be prepared… THE END!
