Stranger to Myself Chapter 21, a wicked fanfic | FanFiction
But, if you want to script doctor, Fiyero as the Scarecrow and part of Dorothy's team is a "mole" who is there to protect Elphaba - that is why he. Elphaba Thropp /ˈɛlfəbə ˈθrɒp/ is a fictional character in Wicked: The Life and Times of the The two fall in love with Elphaba constantly asking Fiyero questions about her old friends. . Her relationship with Glinda (called "Galinda" until she renames herself in the latter part of the first act claiming it to be in honor of Doctor. And then Elphaba had returned to Boq's and crawled into bed, falling . for a few moments, and then Melena asked Elphaba questions about her life. . that Elphaba and Nessarose would have a strong relationship as sisters. She knew Fiyero's reputation, as all in Oz did; but she'd never heard of him.
She finally turned around, and Fiyero saw that her eyes were filled with unshed tears. She chuckled tearily, trying to make light of the situation. She rarely did so, and it always tore at him. Dealing with the constant stares, whispers and attention of everyone else on campus, then dealing with Frex had not been the easiest. Then there was the fact that neither of them had had a lot read: At times it had felt like they were barely getting by.
Fiyero almost smiled, he never knew how she couldn't see it. When Fiyero got an idea into his head, you couldn't stop him. It was better just to let him say what he wanted to say, and go from there. So, she sighed and looked up at Fiyero with patient expectance, which made him grin.
And that's enough for me, to know I get to see you and be with you; and if you think that's not enough, you're wrong. And suddenly, it didn't matter what his parents thought of Elphaba and whether they approved or not. He did the only thing that felt right in that moment, he got down on one knee, watching as the blood drained from her face and her eyes widened. My best friend when I need a friend to hold, my hope when I feel I can't go on, the love of my life.
Every moment of every day, you give me love. You're everything my heart desires, and I'm so lucky to have you with me to share my dreams.
My life is complete as long as I have you, and it doesn't matter what your parents or mine, or anyone else thinks. She hadn't seen this coming, they'd never even discussed marriage before. She'd be lying if she said she'd never thought about it, but she'd never imagined it would happen like this, or this soon. She felt a wave of panic as Fiyero looked up at her, waiting for an answer. She opened her mouth, and said the only clear thought that was running through her mind.
The thing that felt right. Fiyero blinked, hoping he'd heard right. A beaming grin spread over his face and he leapt to his feet, slipping his arms around her waist and pulling her to him as he kissed her. Same goes for your father. I am going to marry you, because I don't know what I'd do without you.
Fiyero cleared his throat and smiled sheepishly, making sure Elphaba's hand was securely wrapped in his. This wasn't how Fiyero had planned on announcing the news, but he figured nothing else had gone to plan, so why should this be any different? And you've made the fact that you don't approve perfectly clear, but I don't care," he answered his father.
She was used to being a source of discontent in her own family, but she didn't want to cause problems between Fiyero and his parents. She's brilliant, absolutely brilliant. She's been top of our year at Shiz as long as I've known her, and she works hard. She practically raised her sister, and she's… she's the most amazing person I've ever met.
Her face softened slightly at the expression on Fiyero's face, but she was still unsure.

She looked to her husband, to see what he would do. Tamhas was staring at the couple, his face blank. And I'm going to marry her no matter what, but I'd really like your blessing," Fiyero said solemnly. Tamhas looked at his son, then looked at Elphaba. She met his gaze steadily, but he could sense the apprehension in her eyes she was trying to hide.
Do you have anything to say? Elphaba, of course, was never one who was at a loss for words; or to pass up the opportunity to speak her mind. But I love your son- very much. And I don't know much about being a princess… or anything about it," she admitted.
He knew that the idea of Elphaba and princess didn't really gel together in her mind, but the fact that she was willing to try spoke volumes to him. I think there's some things we should discuss. Fiyero wanted to go in too, but the look on his father's face clearly said that wouldn't be happening. So, instead he was left to pace the hallway outside his father's office for over an hour.
He could hear no sound from within, and he wondered what his father could possibly be saying to Elphaba. Was his father trying to talk her out of it? He wouldn't succeed, would he? With the broom, she returns to Munchkinland to pay a visit to her family at Colwen Grounds, where Frexspar proposes that she and Nessarose work together to rule Munchkinland, now that it had seceded from Oz. Elphaba is shocked to discover that Nessarose is now a witch herself and has become somewhat of a religious dictator, devoting herself entirely to the Unnamed God and insisting that her spells are "miracles" in His name.
It is here Elphaba witnesses the arrangement between a woman whose servant was a young lady who was going to marry a woodsman. The woman pleads to Nessarose to prevent their marriage, and Nessa enchants the woodsman's axe, which the woman had stolen, to magically attack him and strike off his limbs the next time he uses it.
Elphaba, apparently remorseful for own involvement in terrorism and violence n her younger days, seems a bit perplexed by this confrontation, but turns the other cheek, ignoring it. Elphaba, declining political power, ends up rejecting her sister's proposal to help her rule the East and thus, returns to Kiamo Ko, only to discover that everyone, but Nanny who had come to live there after Nessarose's ascension and Liir, had been captured and taken away.
It is not long after this that Elphaba ironically finds herself in a position of great political power, with the tribes of the Vinkus "rallying around her" after the capture of their royal family and the furthering encroachment upon their territory by the Wizard's government, as she admits later in life.
Elphaba then makes it her mission to save them, but is unsuccessful due to her tragic ending. The Matter of Dorothy One day Elphaba received the news that her sister Nessarose, who had by now been given the nickname, the "Wicked Witch of the East", had been tragically killed. The cause of death was a fallen house that came from another dimension and unexpectedly fell out of the sky and crash landed in the heart of the Munchkinland. As fate would have it, the house crushed Nessarose to death who was handing out religious attendance awards to the Munchkins.
When Elphaba finally arrived in Munchkinland to attend Nessarose's funeral, she sees her father and Glinda again. Glinda now goes by "Lady Glinda" and is known as the respected "Good Witch of the North, having mastered the art of small magic. Glinda calmly tells Elphaba about the house's passenger who was aloft when it descended from the atmosphere.
An adolescent girl by the name of Dorothy Gale from "Canziss" who was accompanied by a mangy pooch called Toto. Glinda explains that she sent Dorothy to see the Wizard to keep the girl from getting pulled into all the political chaos accruing in Munchkinland. Glinda also confesses that she gave the lost girl Nessarose's slippers and cast a spell upon them as protection to keep the girl from being seriously harmed on her journey.
This outrages Elphaba, who is determined to get the shoes back as it is the only thing that she will have left of her sister. Glinda's thoughtless actions cause her and Elphaba to have a falling out and as a result they never speak again. During this time Elphaba meets with the Wizard, who reveals he has Nor. To Elphaba's horror she sees that Nor has been held captive all these years, but stripped of her independence and has been beaten into submission and kept as a slave by the Wizard who then asks Elphaba for the Grimmerie to be given to him.
Elphaba refuses unless he gives up Nor, but he claims she is his protection against her. Elphaba sets out on her flying broomstick to find Dorothy who is oblivious that the Witch is after her. Dorothy is now following the yellow brick road and having her own set of adventures while she is on her way to see the Wizard. Elphaba then runs into Boq once more and they discuss the matter of Dorothy who spent the night at Boq's estate when passing through Munchkinland.
When Boq tells Elphaba how charming Dorothy was Elphaba becomes offended and immediately sets off on her broom without saying goodbye. Eventually Elphaba spots Dorothy who is by this point accompanied by three oddball companions that to Elphaba, looks like a straw man, a shiny woodman and a giant cat of sorts.
She carefully eavesdrops to the group gossip about her when she sees her sisters shoes sparkling on Dorothy's feet. Just as Elphaba attempts to retrieve them it begins to rain, thus letting Dorothy get away while Elphaba takes cover under a tree to avoid contact with water.
Afterwards Elphaba decides to go to Shiz with the intention of killing Madame Morrible. To Elphaba's dismay Morrible has already died of old age seconds prior, so Elphaba could only bash the dead woman's head in with a marble trophy.
Nevertheless, she claims to be Morrible's killer while paying a visit to a dinner party held by Avaricthough she is not taken seriously as a murderer until much later.
On the way back to Kiamo Ko while drunk, she meets the crew of the Clock, who put on a show revealing Elphaba's true parentage, which reveals to be none other than Elphaba's worst enemy, the Wizard. Elphaba does not believe it to be true. However, she begins to have strange dreams that become haunting and nightmarish. So Elphaba makes up a potion to avoid falling asleep. However, the lack of sleep and paranoia over the Wizard having Nor and Dorothy having Nessarose's shoes start to take a toll on her mental health.
When she finally learns Dorothy is on her way to Kiamo Ko, being sent by the Wizard himself, Elphaba notices the girl is still accompanied by the three oddball comrades from earlier.
Since the people in Oz are a superstitious bunch, no one in Oz dares to harm Dorothy due to the meaning of her name which means "Goddess of Gifts" and her coincidentally having the same last name as the Wizard's soldiers known as the "Gale Force". Added with the fact she also wears Nessrose's sparkling shoes, this makes Dorothy nearly untouchable. However, Elphaba believes the Scarecrow that accompanies the girl may indeed be Fiyero in a costume, coming back to her in a disguise.
It also could be Fiyero's spirit inside, possessing the stuffed figure and giving it life. To find out if Fiyero is indeed still alive, rather in body or by spirit by any miracle, Elphaba then immediately sends out her animals to try to lead Dorothy to the Kiamo Ko castle.
Fiyero and Glinda vs Fiyero and Elphaba
However, Elphabla's attempt backfires and all her pets are killed except the flying monkeys who bring Dorothy to the castle along with The Lion. The Scarecrow and Tin Woodman are left behind to wander on their own. After a uncomfortable and disastrous meal, Elphaba pulls Dorothy into one of the castle's high towers in an attempt to straighten things out. While also assuming Dorothy had to be tied into the tapestry of conspiracies in Oz, Dorothy confesses that the Wizard sent her to kill Elphaba in exchange to be sent back to her home but Dorothy, being a mere child, cannot bring herself to do such a terrible task.
Elphaba commands Dorothy to hand over the slippers, but the shoes are enchanted under the protection of Glinda and will not come off. Dorothy explains that the Wizard himself even tried to pry the shoes off and despite her efforts, the slippers simply will not come off her feet. Dorothy sincerely ask Elphaba for forgiveness in killing her sister, which psychologically and emotionally cripples Elphaba due to the fact she was never given the same chance with Sarima. Elphaba's last moments before being liquefied by Dorothy Gale.
Throughout the argument, Elphaba realizes that Dorothy reminds her of herself, as both Elphaba and Dorothy are misunderstood outsiders.
At this time Liir and the Lion barge into the room and come to Dorothy's aid. But Elphaba takes Dorothy to the highest room in the tower and locks the door.
In a state of insanity and psychological defeat, Elphaba accidentally sets her own robes on fire by not paying attention to her surroundings. A frightened Dorothy quickly grabs a bucket near by that is filled with collecting rain water and without a second thought, throws the water at a panicking Elphaba to put out the fire and save the Witch who was ablaze. Instead of saving the Witch, the water kills Elphaba and to Dorothy's horror she melts away before her very eyes.
Immediately after her death scene, the book gives a very strange description, speaking of a moment of startling pain, followed by "floods up above" and "fire down below," and the names of many people of prominence throughout the Witch's life are mentioned in peculiar detail, which could possibly be the Witch seeing the souls of said individuals, including her mother, Nessarose, Turtle Heart, Killyjoy and the Witch's other pets, Sarima, Dr.
Dillamond, and "most of all" Fiyero, but individuals that are still living are also mentioned, such as Glinda, Boq, and Frex. So, whether or not the mentioned dead are actually the souls of the Witch's loved ones awaiting her ascension to the afterlife, or if they are merely hallucinations used as a literary device to better detail her tragic yet liberating death like a life flashing before one's eyes is unknown.
The scene ends with a vague description of the Goddess of Gifts, reaching into the fire and water and pulling out the soul, cradling her. The rest remains unclear. The novel ends by stating that there is no happy ending for a Witch, as no one mourns the Wicked. Mass celebrations all across loyal Oz occur, celebrating the death of the Wicked Witch of the West, with Dorothy being hailed a messiah of some sort, and the Wizard's abrupt resignation and departure and his secret suicide make many in the public wonder of conspiracy.
Despite this, Oz erupts in turmoil, with Munchkinland still wanting to remain independent, and war likely to erupt between the tribes of the Vinkus and the Ozian army.

Around the time of Witch's death, war broke out and many of the Arjikis in Elphaba's army died. Meanwhile, Dorothy supposedly left Oz, while many believed that she never left it at all, and Glinda the Good became the temporary throne minster of the empire.
And regarding the Wicked Witch of the West In the life of a Witch, there is no "after", in the "ever after" of a Witch there is no "happily"; in the story of a Witch, there is no afterword. Of that part that is beyond the life story, beyond the story of the life, there is - alas, or perhaps thank mercy - no telling. She was dead, dead, and gone, and all that was left of her was the carapace of her reputation for malice.
This in turn ties Elphaba to the stories Sarima tells her children about a wicked witch who disappears into a cave. At the end of the story, the children always ask if the witch ever comes out, to which Sarima replies "not yet". At the end of the book, this dialogue is repeated, suggesting that Elphaba will eventually rise again.
Just before being absorbed into the Grimmerie in A Lion Among Men, the oracle known as Yackle also claims that "She's coming back-", although to whom this refers is never made explicitly clear. In interviews, Maguire has stated that a witch may die but will always come back, no matter what. This very well hints that Elphaba is the subject of Yackle's prophecy. Though, it is likely the prophecy was referring to the long lost Ozma, who returns in the final book.
However, in the final book, Nanny claims to have seen Elphaba the other day and Glinda is freed from her jail sentence by someone who she calls "wicked" and who she says "took her time". However, this could easily be Elphaba's granddaughter, Rainwho inherited her green skin.
Some fans believe that Elphaba is Rain, reborn into this world as a second chance to undo many of the wrongs of her previous life. Evidence for such is the fact that Rain is able to ride on Elphaba's broom but so is Liirshe can read the grimmerie, and that she is apparently spoken to by the spirits of Elphaba's pets in Elphaba's quarters during her visit to Kiamo Ko, as well as what happens in Glinda's final scene, which is open to the reader to interpret for themself.
Differences between the book, the film, and Wicked In the musical Wicked, Elphaba is more beautiful, less cynical, more likable, and far more sympathetic than in the film. The Oz characters by L. Frank Baum known as King Pastorius who was the last king of Oz before the Wizard took over, and the Fairy Queen Lurline who is responsible for making Oz the enchanted realm that it is, are both mentioned in the book as well as Pastorius's baby daughter and heir to Oz's throne, princess Ozma.
However, in the stage adaptation, these three Oz characters are not seen nor mentioned. Also, the Oz character by L. Frank Baum known as "Tik-Tok", the mechanical copper man of Oz who serves as Oz's Royal Army, makes a brief appearance in the book but is never mentioned nor seen in the play.
Jemma Rix as Elphaba In the book, Elphaba virtually goes mad, and genuinely becomes "wicked", though understandably so; however in the musical, she tries not to hurt anyone and just wants to help the Animals and the people she cares about. LiirSarima and her children are not present in the musical, instead, a love triangle with FiyeroElphaba and Glinda is formed.
The young Elphaba shows interest in sorcery as soon as her powers are revealed, as opposed to having it thrust upon her as in the book. Elphaba is explicitly shown to survive at the end, and goes to live a life beyond Oz with Fiyerowhere in the book her impending resurrection is only hinted.
Elphaba is also the creator of the Tin Woodman through a spell to save Boq, who had had his heart shrunken to apparent non-existence by Nessarosethe Scarecrow through a spell with which she attempts to save Fiyero from being tortured to death on her account and the Cowardly Lion the Lion Cub she rescued from the class after Doctor Dillamond 's removal ; in the book the first is a result of an axe bewitched by Nessarose, and the scarecrow's existence has nothing to do with Fiyero, other than her slight suspicion that he might indeed be her love coming back to find her, which just proves to be a paranoid delusion.
Elphaba also has a less significant vendetta with Madame Morrible in the musical than in the book: In the novel, Elphaba relentlessly attempts to kill Morrible, but in the musical, Elphaba has virtually nothing to do with her after the conclusion of the first act. Her relationship with Glinda called "Galinda" until she renames herself in the latter part of the first act in honor of Doctor Dillamond is a central feature of the musical.
As in the novel, the two initially despise each other, but eventually develop a strong friendship. For a while, Elphaba goes along with Glinda 's attempts to make her popular, but her rebellious and revolutionary nature ultimately forces her to reject both social and political popularity in favor of doing what she knows to be right in fighting to save the Animals. Just prior to Elphaba's supposed melting, the two confess that each has been changed by their friendship: Elphaba admits that Glinda was the only friend she ever had, and Glinda replies that Elphaba was the only friend she has ever had who really mattered.
