Straight Outta Oz by Todrick Hall.

Watch it. It’s AMAZING. Incredible visual concept album using the story of the Wizard of Oz to explore his life. Absolutely stunning costuming and cinematography, really smart writing, and beautiful performances. Addresses so many important issues like black media representation, gun violence, the price of fame, leaving home, finding who you are, sexuality etc. 

Also some pretty impressive guest stars including:

  • Wayne Brady
  • Kim Chi
  • William Belli
  • Amber Riley
  • Nicole Scherzinger
  • Chester See & Grace Helbig
  • Jordin Sparks (who sings one of my favorite songs in the whole thing, I legit started crying) 
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt

It’s an hour long but it is so worth the time.

As the think tank walked into the tent they were greeted by two officers.
‘Kono Kalakaua.’ Kono said, smiling.
‘Chin Ho Kelly. Thank you for coming and helping.’ They nodded their heads and then Jack, Mac, Riley and Bozer introduced themselves.
‘How can you guys help?’ Kono asked them, they all looked around.
‘Well I went through some of a first aid course, I can see if I can help over here.’ Bozer said and then walked off to where all the nurses were running around.
‘I can see if I can get the cell connection back up and working again.’ Riley said as she reached into her backpack and brought out her laptop going over to where there were laptops placed over tables.
‘What do you do?’ Chin asked Mac and Jack
‘Well I do a little bit of this and a little bit of that.’ He said, Chin raised an eyebrow, before nodding.
‘Okay, well you and Jack can come with us to go search, you’ll need a radio.’ Chin commented.
‘But we’re out.’ He then said as he realized he just gave away the last one.
‘That’s fine.’ Mac said, he then looked around and gathered all that he needed for him to make a radio. Once he was done he twisted a knob and when sound was produced, Chin scoffed.
‘You a lot like Y/N, you know that?’ Chin said as MacGyver put down the make shift radio. Jack and MacGyver looked up.
‘Y/N?’ Jack asked.
‘Our…little bit of this and a little bit of that person.’ Chin said once he found the correct words to describe you. He they walked through the tent, the power flicked off and everyone groaned.
‘We can fix it.’ MacGyver said. Kono smiled and nodded.
‘Round the back, but Y/N is more than likely on it already.’ Kono told them, but they made their way back.

When they got to the generator, they looked at each other as they saw feet sticking out the bottom.
‘Y/N?’ You heard a voice ask from above.
‘Who’s asking?’ You asked as you slid out from under the generator. You looked up and saw two men watching you.
‘Mac, Jack.’ The one with black hair said pointing at them, when he said their names.
‘You okay?’ Jack then asked.
‘Yup… Just fixing the operator.’ You said as you pulled yourself up from the ground. Wiping your hands on your trousers and then moved the stray hair out your face.
‘You know if you mag-’ Mac said as he watched you climb up on top of the machine.
‘Magnetize the battery, it will re charge it, yeah I know.’ You told him, as Jack nudged Mac’s shoulder, smirking as they watched you.
‘Pass the forceps please.’ Mac passed them up to you. You went down into the generator, clipping the forceps to defibrillator and then connecting it to the battery.
‘What are you doing?’ You heard Jack ask but when you pressed the charge button and the engine started purring you could hear a cheer coming from the tent.

As you heard a man screaming you ran around the corner, when you saw four men jump out the window on ropes. You scanned the area for a weapon, when you saw an iron pipe lying on the rocks, you smiled and grabbed it.
‘Hey!’ You said, they all turned to look at you. When one came charging towards you, you raised the pipe, whacking his arm as he came closer, when he held his arm, you hit him in the back of the legs, sending him down to the ground. You then hit him over head to make sure he wouldn’t be going anywhere. The others came towards you, you managed to get one down before the third knocked the pipe out your hand sending it flying. He then kicked you in the stomach, knocking to the ground and breathless. You could hear the last two taking steps towards you. Taking a deep breaths, you reached for his leg holster and brung his pistol out. Taking the safety off you shot him in the leg, he screamed in pain and fell. You then stood up and raised the gun to the other man, he took a step forward but you shot beside his foot and he stopped, raising his hands and lowering to the ground.
‘Wooohooo! You are so much better than MacGyver.’ Jack said, you smiled as him and Kono came around. You handed the gun to Kono, as she gave you a pair of handcuffs.
‘You know me and you should go-‘You heard Jack say but you cut him off.
‘Not gonna happen.’ You told him, lifting the guy of the ground as he groaned in pain from his leg. You saw jack pout and nodded his head.
‘Okay, okay.’
‘Hey, Mac, we’ll get back in time for your birthday.’ Jack said as he spotted MacGyver coming out with the scientists.

‘Chewbacca!’ Bozer said as he watched the dog run towards him. When you were out and about, Bozer had found your dog, he had found your dog. He had hurt his foot and Bozer had looked after him, and was looking forward to taking him home, but when he found out he was yours he, reluctantly gave it over to you.
‘What’s he doing here?’ MacGyver asked. Bozer picked up Chewbacca.
‘I don’t know man but he’s here. Bozer said as he held him close. Mac looked up and seen you walk in looking around the room, he noticed the smile come across your face when you saw Boozer with you dog. Your eyes then moved over to Mac, and you smile got wider. He stood up and walked over enveloping you in a hug.
’Happy Birthday.’ You said placing a gentle kiss on his cheek, he smiled at you.
‘Why are you here?’ Mac asked with creased eyebrows.
‘Jack invited me.’ You said looking up at him.
‘Of course he did.’ Mac breathed out. You smiled your attention going back to Bozer.
‘He loves that dog, doesn’t he?’ You asked and Mac looked over to him and nodded.
‘Yeah, didn’t stop talking about him. I thought he was yours.’ He asked again, you nodded your head.
‘He was.’ You told him truthfully.
‘Was?’ Mac asked.
‘He’s Bozer’s now.’ You told him, looking at Bozer talking animatedly to Riley.
‘He’s gonna be better here, I mean come look at him.’ You said pointing at your ex dog, sitting happily wagging his tail looking up at Riley and Bozer.
‘Yeah, well Bozer will take care of him.’ You said teasingly, but you knew he would be perfect.
‘Yeah, I can stop by and make sure of it.’ You commented, Mac smiled and nodded. You then saw Jack coming towards you.
‘Well if it isn’t badass Y/N, you came to accept my offer?’ He said as he sauntered closer.
‘You wish Jack.’ You said, you smiled at Mac before walking past Jack and patted his shoulder as you went over to riley and Bozer.
‘Mac?’ Jack asked.
‘Yeah.’ Mac answered Jack.
‘You better ask her out.’ He said, Mac smiled but didn’t say anything, only watched as you sat beside his best friends, laughing and joking away.
