Wickedy Wicked Wickoo by secondlina Wickedy Wicked Wickoo by secondlina
So, surprising no one, an Oz-themed drawing, specifically, the from the fictional universe of Wicked. I have a slight obsession with all things Oz it seems. (*cought cought Namesake www.namesakecomic.com cought cought*)

So, Glinda and Elphaba. Those guys! What can I say about them? Generally, I love them. I really like the musical version of Wicked. I didn’t enjoy the book as much. I did read the book way before I saw or heard about the musical. But I found it to be a difficult and dry read. A lot of interesting concepts. But it kinda sucked away the magic from Oz, and I think i’m a bit tired of the “dangerously corrupted ex-magical world” trope. Not that i’m saying all magical world should be Utopias.

Thank you for making Elfie pretty! <3 I'm reading Wicked right now, and I do have to agree with you... It seems like an entirely separate world from LFB's Oz, in my opinion.

I kinda feel Wicked (the book) may have been more enjoyable if set in a fully invented new world.

i will agree, same with me... read the book before i knew of the musical. i had to skip about or i loose interest like how i lost it on harry potter n the witching hour lol... the son of a witch was dry too.. the others got me though. the other books by the author were good but the book to wicked did nothing. musical, had been obsessed with since high school n just saw it the other year so i been a big music buff of it for almost 9 years now.... i used to dream up the story in my head from the music till i saw it.. i love looking at the picture you drew, they look young and happy and now popular is in my head.... it is one of the few songs i love singing and learned to play on guitar n piano by ear

Je n'ai jamais lu le livre ni vu la piece... mais une amie m'en a parle et donne un resume et c'etait assez interessant come concept XP

Le concept est super. L'exécution pourrait être mieux dans les deux cas. Mais bon... on fait avec.

I know what you mean about "dangerously corrupted ex-magical worlds". I kind of hate it when people want to make children stories "adult". It destroys all the innocence they had in an effort to be edgy and appealing to older audience. I think the Wicked musical is great because it leaves some more of the innocence while still being more grown-up than the original Oz books.

I found the Oz books had plenty of grown up parts (downright scary and difficult scenes) and plenty of magical problems. I guess the part I dislike about people making magical worlds darker and edgier is that they are basically turning the magic world in a version of our own, following the logical rules of good and bad that our world has... when magical worlds have their own logic.

So true! I also have that feeling that people think everything is better when you make it edgy. If you want something for a real WTF moment, there's a Wizard of Oz themed roleplay game where they made everything as dark and edgy as possible. They turned Polychrome into a stripper :/

This is pretty--totally faving it. ^^
Yeah, I tried reading the book too-it was alright, but I couldn't quite get into it...mainly because of the content, (I found the book when I was 12...my dad bought it for me. He had no clue what he was doing. ><), and, like ou said, the corrupted ex-magical world, and the fact that Nessa and Boq never really knew each other. That made me cry-I LOVE them as a pair! ><

well you must be the First OZ fan that i find out loves Wicked the musical.

and i must say it's very refreshing! (from all the others throwing hate and using the oz characters themselves to throw hate)

and the drawing is beautiful! elphaba herself looks beautiful in her own plain girl way.

(just out of curiosity- there wont be any references to wicked in Namesake- i assume?)

secondlina Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011
There are no references to Wicked in Namesake because 1) Wicked is copyrighted and 2) It's more fun that way. Namesake isn't about Oz back in the day, it's about Oz now, and it's about a whole bunch of other worlds :D

I consider the musical to be like... The Disney-ish version of an idea. It's not perfect, but the songs are fun, the whole thing is pretty as heck and it's not the first "fan-fiction considered canon-ish" that someone has written about Oz, so what the heck, might as well enjoy it! :D
