This was cute and entertaining as you kept the Wizard of Oz theme growing. The ending made me smile. Thanks.

OOOOO, love this:) I love the Wizard of Oz. This was very cute and entertaining.
With the first paragraph or two I thot this might have a Wizard of Oz flavor & it didn't disappoint me. Great job! Excellent connection to the topic. (Plus I love Seattle!)

This was a lot of fun...loved the MC, and all the Oz connections. I am guessing this was a blast to write! Tee hee!

What an imagination! This will definitely score high on the "creative" scale. I was compelled to follow the yellow brick road to the end of this story, and I found a treasure. :)

Brave of you to lean on something so well-known as the Wizard of Oz, while keeping enough lightness to ensure a surprise in the ending.
Great sense of feeling that plumbs adolescent volatility - lifeless boredom one minute, and energy, insight and hope in the next.
Congratulations on first place.

Ultra creative and sparkly! Made me smile and even gave me that feel-good bubble in my belly like the movie does. Congrats, so well done!

Oh fun... I enjoyed all the references to Oz.. DJ took me along for the plane ride with this! :) Congrats, Mari!
Congratulations Marita! Such a cute story. I have always wanted to see Glenda as an Angel instead of a witch...and now I can!
What a wonderfully fun story. Congrats on a well-deserved first place win.

Very good work. The more I read the more I liked your story. Because you kept adding new OZ information, before the end I started looking for the OZ information. The name of the witch at the end was a perfect ending to a very well crafted story. Thank you. I had the pleasure of reading your story and I did not even have to buy the magazine.
