Mellow Brick Road, A Wizard of Oz Remix

eye candy

Way back in the dawn of blog, we included Dorothy on a short list of examples of published, famous Mary Sues, and I noticed some confusion about that. Allow me to explain: as soon as Dorothy appears in Oz, any character who does not immediately fall in love with her and overturn the order of the setting to help her plotline along is not just a bad guy, but the evilest thing to ever evil, and ugly. I’m not saying Dorothy’s character doesn’t work within her genre (because it does), I’m just saying: trope.

Man, now I want to watch The Wizard of Oz.
