"And did she ever come out?"
It has been seven years since the demise of the Wicked Witch of the West.
Oz has been thriving under the reign of Ozma Tippetarius, who was discovered
living under the guise of a boy; a foul plot designed by her own father,
King Pastoria, who did not wish to give up his title to his daughter,
the rightful ruler of Oz. Though she is young, she is fair, and the destruction
caused by the Wizard is slowly but surely being patched up.
But some things can never be mended.
Believing magic has always been a factor in the destruction of their society,
Ozma has banned the practice of it, allowing only her own ministers to
wield such power. Glinda the Good, who has escalated from Witch status
to Sorceress, now rules more than just the Gillikin Country she hailed from.
She now oversees all under their child leader, tending to the things that
Ozma cannot. The Quadling Country has become her latest project, attempting
to civilize it in memory of her dear old friend who was once raised there...
Not all are pleased with the banning of magic, as expected. Black markets
and hidden teaching societies are springing up all across the darker
corners of Oz, and some are even growing bold enough to surface
in well-known establishments of learning, such as Shiz University. Ozma is
aware of the treachery going on in her kingdom, but she has yet to
find the source of these on-goings. Little does she know, the head of this
black organization might be one of her very own...
Meanwhile, rumors of a black shadow flying across the skies have spread across the land.
Is this a blantant show of disrespect towards Princess Ozma's ban on magic?
Or...is it something or someone else?

, welcome to OZ.
(Seeing as RPGing is, in a sense, writing a long fanfic with others/collaborating, I figured this would be okay. If not, feel free to delete. Just thought I'd share with fellow Wicked/Oz writers, seeing as we desperately need some. ;) We're especially looking for the character of Ozma, amongst others. Please check us out if you're interested in doing some writing with us!)
Co-in-ci-dentally, today's the day I both (a) checked in on the community for admittedly a rather long while (curses, real life, for getting in the way!) and (b) discovered your RPG community on the gregorymaguire.com discussion boards and decided to apply. :D Heee. Is it obvious I've been on an obsessive Wicked kick all day? In any case, hopefully you--or whomever else moderates?--got the email I sent inquiring about the comm, so that I can apply ASAP. I'm itching to get a little Wicked back in my system.
And to everyone else reading this: y'all should check out the RPG as well! Sounds like some lovely mixed-canon fun.
