There's something in the water around here *OTA, Tag Elphaba*  
Glinda woke up in a very good mood! After all, it was a friday, no work over the weekend, and Elphaba was off too. It was their first together in a while. A note from Elphaba awaited her in the bed, and she got up to take a long soak in preperation for a borifying, but none the less passible day at the library. Why did people go there, anyway? It was so quiet and borifying you could fall asleep nearly immediately. She slipped into the tub, sighing as the hot water enveloped her. Pleasant thoughts kept her company in her hour soak, and when she got out, she grabbed a towel and went to her beautification routine. That ended with a blood curdling scream. She gasped, tears filling her eyes. Wrinkles? And her hair! It was streaked with...with...with GREY?

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Glinda screamed, crying. She was not going anywere today, and left a message to Elphaba to tell her so. At least until lunch, when her hunger overrode her. With a scarf tied around her head, she went to the cafe. Maybe no one would notice how hideotious she looked.

OOC: find her anywhere in the hotel or on the way to the cafe.

After a series of unsettling messages from her wife. Elphaba went back to the hotel as quickly as she could. She had just gotten to the hallway when she spotted her wife wearing a scarf over her head. "Glinda? Why are you wearing a scarf?"

Glinda nearly screamed when she saw Elphaba, and turned around in the hallway before Elphaba could get a good look.

"Don't you listen? Go back to the library." Glinda said, her voice obviously upset.

Elphaba's brow furrowed in worry at that. She quickly stepped up to Glinda and pulled her into a hug from behind. "My sweet, you are obviously very upset by this. Please, let me see so that I can help you."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
Glinda shrugged her off.

"Please don't make me run. I may breakify my hip." Glinda said, sniffling. She didn't want anyone to see her like this, but especially not Elphaba.

Elphaba opened the door to their room and magically pulled Glinda inside before shutting and locking the door. She spun Glinda to look into her face and removed the scarf. Her jaw dropped lightly when she saw the grey hair and how much her sweet wife had aged. She reached out for Glinda to pull her into a hug and kissed her on the temple gently. "Oh my sweet. I still love you and we will get through this together."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
"Leave...leave me alone! I don't need your lies! I'm hideotious! How can you possibly love me when I'm this oldified?" Glinda said, breaking away and sitting on the sofa, pulling herself into a ball.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 03:55 pm (UTC)
Elphaba followed Glinda to the couch and sat down next to her. She pulled her close and gave her another kiss to the temple. "My sweet, you know when I am lying. You have the power to sense it. Use your magic. I truly love you Glinda and I will always love you no matter what you look like. I fell in love with the brave, beautiful, and brilliant woman you are and will always be on the inside."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 03:57 pm (UTC)
"Really?" Glinda sniffled, leaning into that kiss. Glinda had always been blonde, beautiful, blissful perfection. She honestly hadn't expected Elphaba to accept her like this. She certainly didn't.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:02 pm (UTC)
Elphaba nodded at Glinda's question. "Really my sweet." She just held onto Glinda and poured out the love she had for her into the embrace.
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
Glinda sighed, feeling content for the first time since she saw herself in the mirror.

"But why? Why would the village make me this oldified." Glinda knew it couldn't have been Elphaba. Elphaba wasn't this cruel, "And why didn't it do it to you, too?"
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:09 pm (UTC)
Elphaba shrugged her shoulder at that. "I do not know my sweet. Perhaps we could take a concealed flight around town in your bubble to see if anyone else is a different age today."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:11 pm (UTC)
"That sounds like a good idea, but let's take your broom instead." Glinda suggested, curling more into Elphie, "As emotional as I am right now, it may not be stable."
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:15 pm (UTC)
Elphaba nodded, "As you wish my sweet. I will put up a cloaking spell so that no one will see you my sweet as we investigate this."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:20 pm (UTC)
"Do I...Do I look really bad, Elphie?" Glinda asked, uncharacteristically self concious.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:24 pm (UTC)
Elphaba shook her head as she pulled Glinda in for a gentle kiss. "No my sweet, but you are unhappy with your current look. I only suggested it for your comfort my sweet."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:25 pm (UTC)
"Unhappy is an understatement. I look like a prune!" Glinda huffed.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:27 pm (UTC)
Elphaba looked at Glinda's face and then shook her head. "No, not a prune. Your skin is far too smooth to be a prune."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:33 pm (UTC)
"You lie, but thank you." Glinda said, burying her head into Elphaba's neck for a cathartic cry.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:38 pm (UTC)
Elphaba smiled as she shook her head. "It is not a lie my sweet. You do not have that many wrinkles, nor are they very deep. With the make-up you put on I can barely see them my sweet. If this is truly a glimpse of how you will look many years from now then I hope my skin is in as good condition as yours."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 04:49 pm (UTC)
Glinda smiled.

"Really? You're not just saying that to make me feel better?" Glinda asked, hopeful.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 04:51 pm (UTC)
Elphaba looked deep into Glinda's eyes. "I truly mean that my sweet."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 05:01 pm (UTC)
"I love you so much." Glinda said, kissing Elphaba softly.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 05:02 pm (UTC)
Elphaba returned that gentle kiss before leading Glinda to the window. "Are you ready to investigate my sweet?"
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 05:07 pm (UTC)
"Please! Maybe the sunshine will do me some good." Glinda said, clinging to Elphaba's side, "Just tell your broom no shenanagins. I'm not in the mood to be any more embarassed than I already am." She said, as fact.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 05:13 pm (UTC)
Elphaba nodded, "No shenanagins my sweet. I promise." Elphaba made sure Glinda as secure on the broom before joining her and casting a cloaking spell over them. She then eased her broom out of the window and towards the main street of the village.

She was amazed to see so many children running around. "I don't remember seeing this many children before. Why aren't they in school?"
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 05:18 pm (UTC)
"I don't know. It is rather odd." Glinda said, looking around.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 05:49 pm (UTC)
Elphaba pointed at a familiar blonde. "I think that's Draco, but he looks a lot younger."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 06:26 pm (UTC)
"I think so, too. Wow, so this is village wide?" Glinda said, shaking her head.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 06:33 pm (UTC)
Elphaba smiled at that. "That is good news my sweet! If it is village wide then this is only temporary."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 06:55 pm (UTC)
"Thank Oz for that.' Glinda said, relieved, "Apparently I'm not going to age well." She said, finally relaxing.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 07:07 pm (UTC)
Elphaba gasped when she pointed out an elderly woman who was hunched over a walking stick. "My sweet, you have aged brilliantly compared to that poor soul."
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 08:05 pm (UTC)
Glinda looked down, and shook her head.

"Sadly, you may be right." She said, laughing a little more.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
Elphaba smiled at that little laugh. "You are still adorably cute my sweet. What would you like to do until this wears off?"
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
"What I would like to do is absolutly out of the question." Glinda said, laughing.
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
Elphaba grinned at that. "Well then. Why don't we go for a nice walk in the woods then?"
goodnesswinsgoodnesswins on November 25th, 2013 08:35 pm (UTC)
"That sounds like fun." Glinda said, smiling genuinely, "Let's go ahead and walk."
go1nggreengo1nggreen on November 25th, 2013 08:44 pm (UTC)
Elphaba smiled as she flew towards the forest. "I thought you might like that."
