OH. MY. OZ. I cannot in any way, shape, or form believe it have been exactly one year since I reviewed vinkunwildflowerqueen's story 'Far longer Than Forever,' for the first time, pretty much deciding that "Vinkun Wildflower" was the funniest thing to ever grace the planet… (still is, in my opinion, except for that one time when she cut off Boq's-) I remember the day she followed me on Twitter. And it was through her that I met all of the amazing friends that I have today. So this one-shot is completely dedicated to Carlie because well… she's my best friend and I love her to death… even if she refuses to write more Juliyero… whatever, it's a thing. Anyway, to repay her for all that she puts up with, whether it be armies of squirrels, crying because of a squirrel, or basically giving me whatever I want because if she doesn't, I'll just bug her for the rest of our lives, I've given her, her own special role in this one-shot and I think I did PURTY good, if I say so myself. =) Love you, Carlie! 3

So here's a continuation of the roadtrip thingy that leads into the zoo staaarrttinnngg NOW!


"Wow, I've never been to a zoolio-istical-ism!" Galinda exclaimed, running up to a cage that held a monkey. Fiyero and Boq exchanged a confused look, but before either one of them could speak, a loud trumpet sounded.

"Hey," Fiyero said, his face breaking out into a huge grin, "I know those trumpets! Oh my Oz, you guys! THIS IS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT OF MAH LIFE!"

"Why is Fiyero fangirling?" Galinda asked Boq.

"I don't know. Fiyero, why are you fangirling?" Boq asked Fiyero. Fiyero's grin (as if it were possible) got wider.

"Because we're about to meet the Queeeeeeeeeeen!" he squealed in reply.

"NO WAY!" Boq argued, also smiling excitedly now.

"WAY!"

"This trip just got all kinds of weird," Galinda muttered before she was interrupted by a short man with a large pogo stick. "Hey what's with the pogo-"

"Here ye, here ye!" he yelled.

"WE HERE YOU, SHORT MAN WITH THE POGO STICK! WE HERE YOU!" Boq and Fiyero replied, arms looped tightly as they jumped with excitement. The man gave them an odd look (I guess something about seeing two grown men jumping up and down with excitement was too much for him) before continuing:

"IT IS MY GREAT PLEASURE AND DUTY-"

"Heh, duty," Galinda murmured under her breath with a chuckle while Boq fainted from the pure anticipation of the moment.

"-TO ANNOUNCE HER ROYAL HIGHNESS, QUEEN CARLITA."

"WOOOOOO!" Fiyero cheered, fist pumping the air. "WOOOOOO! YOU GO GURL!"

"Oh no… I know that annoying voice," came a voice behind a group of bushes. Fiyero jumped in happiness as the Queen herself hesitantly stepped out from behind the bushes, looking paranoid in her royally red royal robes of royalty.

"Oh Lurline, I was right," she sighed when saw Fiyero. Instead of turning around (like she would've much preferred) she strutted towards Fiyero, head held high. "Hello, Fiyero."

"Why hello there, Carlieee-"

"Don't call me that," Carlita shot quickly. "Don't think I forgot what you did."

"What'd he do?" Galinda asked, looking back and forth between them.

"He threatened my kingdom," she replied icily.

"…the Vinkun kingdom?" Galinda clarified.

"A large majority of it."

"Which majority?" Galinda asked. Carlita glared at her.

"The important one."

Galinda shrugged. "Good enough for me," she decides, punching Fiyero in the arm.

"Ow!" Fiyero shrieked, his voice several octaves too high. The high-pitched-ness of the squeal caused the previously passed out Boq to jerk awake, looking around wildly.

"SHE SAID SHE WAS EIGHTEEN!" he shouted before taking in his surroundings. "Oh... This isn't the Anatomy Club..."

"You mean the Philosophy Club?" Fiyero asked, pulling Boq up by his shoulder.

"No. I mean the Anatomy Club," he confirmed, looking around, still slightly dazed. "So, where's the Vinkun Queen?"

"Uh, helllloooo? I'm right heeereee," Carlita snapped, raising an eyebrow at the two of them.

"Um, you're not Fiyero's mother," Boq pointed out bluntly.

Awkward silence.

"WAT?" Carlita, Fiyero, and Galinda exclaimed.

"…..Wait a second, you are the Queen of the Vinkus right?" Boq asked for clarification. Carlita looked at him like he'd grown the entire Lollipop Guild on his face.

"Uh, no?" she answered.

"But… Fiyero said you were the Queen… and he's the Prince so doesn't that make you his…" Boq made some weird hand gestures in his confused state, before shutting up all together.

"Did you tell them I was your mother?" Carlita snapped at Fiyero, causing him to step back, hands upraised.

"Wha?-No! EW! GROSS! NO! Ew!" he began shouting, covering his ears as if trying to block out a flashback. "EWWWWWW! NOOOOO! THAT'S SO WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS! EWWWWWW GRROSSSSS! I'M GONNA DIEEE! EWWWW!"

While Fiyero continued to scream in agony, Galinda turned to Carlita.

"So, what kind of Queen are you then?" she asked.

"THE PAAAIINN! EWWWW! JUST SHOOT ME NOOWWW!"

"Oh!" Carlita exclaimed before clearing her throat. "Chiki-Chiki! Do your announcing thingy with the words and the pogo stick!"

The short man with the pogo stick, whose name was apparently Chicki-Chicki, sighed and waved his hand above his head, signally mighty trumpets to begin… trumpeting.

"HER MAJESTY, QUEEN CARLITA OF THE MIGHTILY WILD AND OVERGROWN VINKUN DAISIES!" he shouted.

"THAT IS NAASSSTTYYY! EWWW! EW EW EW EWWWWWWWW!"

"And why do you hate Fiyero?" Galinda asked.

"I don't hate Fiyero," Carlita replied, looking shocked. "I could never hate him. I just think he is an uneducated buffoon who shouldn't be allowed to breathe the same formaldehyde as me."

"….Formalde-wha?"

"Formaldehyde. What, you didn't really think that royals breathe the same air as you peons do, did you?

"EW! THAT'S SO GRROSSS! EWWWWWW! I'M GONNA BARF!"

"Fiyero, must you keep screaming?" Carlita yelled at Fiyero, punching him in the arm, causing him to yelp.

"SAVE THE JEWELS!" Boq exclaimed, jumping up between Carlita and Fiyero. Carlita face-palmed.

"You told him about the jewels?" she asked Fiyero with an irritated tone.

"Hey, it's not too hard to tell that I've got jewels. And that they're royalty," Fiyero replied, standing up straighter with a smirk.

"You're disgusting," Carlita said, turning away.

"You know it, babe," Fiyero said with a wink.

"Fiyero, that is no way to talk to your mother," Boq chided, looking slightly scandalacisized.

"EEEEEWWWWWWWWW! NO! GROSS! EW! NO! EW EW EW EW! I'M GONNA DIEE!"

"Listen, Biq-"

"Boq."

"Listen, short dude without a pogo stick," Carlita continued, "Fiyero and I are not related. At all. In no way do we share any sort of DNA."

"…So why don't you like him? What'd he do?" Galinda asked. Carlita glared at the Prince.

"Go ahead and tell them, Fiyero. Tell them of the evils you have done," she ordered with a hiss.

"Well," Fiyero began, looking unperturbed by Carlita's anger, "I may have sort of kind of accidentally set an entire field of Vinkun Daisies on fire during the Harvest season while I was drunk after I dumped Carlita."

Galinda and Boq froze with arched eyebrows before looking at each other.

"The trouble with fields is," they sang, "they always try to catch fire."

"GURL, THOSE FIELDS ARE JUST TRYING TO BE LIKE MEH," yelled Katniss Everdeen, who had magically appeared out of nowhere.

Silence.

"Well," Fiyero prodded Galinda, "aren't you gonna go, 'BEGONE, GIRL ON FIRE! JIGGILY WIGGILY! POOF!" He waved his hands in the air wildly.

"…Why would I do that?" Galinda asked. "Katniss is totally badass."

"But she's in the wrong story," Fiyero argued.

"….I'm not kicking her out," was the stubborn reply.

More silence.

"Um, well, this is awkward," said Katniss before she looked at her watch. "Oh! Look at the time, I have to go… shoot some squirrels now..."

"Well, I think she's just loverly," Galinda said as Katniss ran out of the zoo. Fiyero looked at her with an odd expression.

"We're doomed," he said simply.

"That statement has absolutely nothing to do with the situation, Ro-Ro," Carlita said, punching his arm.

"Ro-Ro?" Boq snickered. Fiyero glared at him.

"It was the only untaken nickname I could get from 'Fiyero,'" Carlita explained.

"Wait," Boq said, "so why'd you break up with a babe like Carlita?"

"If you ever call me anything besides Carlita again, I smack you into next Thursday," Carlita said blankly. The munchkin's eyes widened in fear as he shuffled behind Galinda.

"I broke up with her, because she wouldn't give me back massages and stuff," Fiyero explained bitterly. Carlita glared at him.

"I hate you."

"That's not what you said that one night when you went downto-"

Out of nowhere, I loud scream rang out through the zoo. Everyone turned to see Elphaba yelling out random battle cries as she rode through the zoo on a zebras back, dozens of animals (and Animals) rampaging behind them.

"FOR MUNCHKINLAND!" she screamed. "ONWARD, MY FRIENDS! YOU ARE FREE!" She pointed toward the exit and the a(A)nimals had no hesitancy as they left.

"TELL THEM HOOWW YOUUU ARREE ESCAAAPINGG PUBLIC ZOOS! YOU'RE RUNNING FAST, NO ONE DARES TO CATCH YOU, AND NOBODY WILL EVEN TRY."

"What the fu-?" Carlita began to say before Fiyero covered her mouth as he watched Elphaba with awe.

"AND NOBODY, IN ALL OF OZ, NO HUMAN THAT THERE IS OR WAS, IS EVER GONNA PUT-"

"This is the good part," Galinda whispered to Boq excitedly.

"I know!" Boq replied, grinning.

"YOOOOUUUU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCKKK-"

"I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY!" Carlita yelled at Fiyero as a rhino ran over her foot.

"LOOK AT HER, SHE'S THE QUEEN! PICTURES!" Galinda and Boq sang, pointing their cameras at Carlita.

"BRIIINNGG YYOOOUUU BAAAAA-"

"NO ONE MOURNS THE DAISIES! SO WE'VE GOT TO TAKE A-"

"!"

"!"


Also, shout-out to everyone who tried to guess what the Beatles song was, but while I was going through the reviews, trying to figure out who answered first, I realized that NOBODY KNEW WHAT THE SONG WAS CALLED. I pity you poor, poor people. The song is called 'Eleanor Rigby' contrary to the popular belief that it's called "All the Lonely People." So…. You guys are all uncultured swines. =P I'm just kidding, I love you. *Mother Gothel moment anyone?* Haha.

Also shout-out to DefyingGravity13 for being my 200th reviewer woooooooo. The anniversary of Galinda the Hyper was actually January 23, and I completely forgot about it until like, 5 minutes after midnight on the 24th. But thank you so so so so soooo much to everyone who has read, reviewed, or added me/this story to their alerts, it means the world to me!

Question of the Day: Did anyone else go see Beauty and the Beast in 3D and see Rapunzel and Flynn *Eugene* get married? I cried. Throughout the entire thing. Thoughts? If you haven't seen it, I DEMAND THAT YOU DO. 3
