Doing my quick intro before heading off to work (because I can work! yay!).
This is Lissa with my first character (I already have plans for a couple more over the next couple of months). This is Dorothy Gale, but she's not the Dorothy most people are familiar with. This one is from Witches of Oz, a mini-series from earlier this year that was later released as a dvd movie. It's admittedly pretty cheesy but it was an interesting take on Dorothy, so here goes...
Dorothy is all grown up and the author of a children's book series based on the stories her grandfather created. Little did she know, her grandfather is really her father and her uncle is really her nephew (confusing much?) Basically, when Dorothy disappeared to Oz her father (who we all know as Frank Baum) could see her adventures through a snow globe and he wrote about them. When Dorothy returned to Kansas, she lost her memories of Oz and apparently some of her previous life. She only just found out the truth before coming here and is starting to remember bits and pieces. She has the memory dust with her (it's in a pouch around her neck that she wears under her shirt) so she may remember more later.
If anyone else HAS seen the movie and wants to bring anyone in (when allowed), I would really love Billie for some drama and Allen because he's her illustrator and best friend. But I'm not counting on it. In general, I would just love any plot that comes my way.
As far as puncturing goes: most people will not be aware of Witches of Oz but almost everyone is familiar with some form of Wizard of Oz. So I imagine a lot of people will be familiar with Dorothy in a sense.
