On the first anniversary of the day Maria knew she would never be a Slayer, her former Watcher suggested—firmly—that she retire to the convent. She was too wild to be on her own, he said, with no skills to earn a living. She had no vocation for it, but she loved him and had found no place for herself in civilian life, so she went. She loved God, loved the Mother Superior; it was not enough. The gates shutting behind her felt like prison.

On the second anniversary, Maria married Georg. The church bells chiming sounded like freedom.

It was D.G.’s first Dorothy Day in the O.Z., the first since the Sorceress’ reign of terror had ended, and it was one hell of a party. “What’s the occasion, again?” she asked, watching the festivities.

“Anniversary of Dorothy of the Ruby Slipper’s appearance in the O.Z.,” Cain replied. “And of her defeat of both the Witches of the day. Dropped a house on one, melted the other. Took her a week.”

“Wow,” D.G. said. “Quick work.”

The wind blew up out of a calm sky, just like the night she was transported to the O.Z. D.G. looked over at her mother, then at Azkadellia, the only two she knew who could create such a storm; both looked concerned.

The partiers, realizing something was happening, stopped their revelry. Soon, a tornado touched down, and people ran screaming as party decorations took to the air. Then it was over, and the sky was clear again. The storm had passed, leaving behind a brunette in clothes D.G. might have seen on television back home. They’re certainly not from the O.Z.

The girl sat up. “Where am I?”

“You’re in the O.Z.,” D.G. replied. “Who are you?”

“Cordelia Chase. Is that near L.A.?”

A year after Superman disappeared, Lois was back at work (though only part time). Perry put her on a puff piece; she set him straight. Lois Lane was a mommy, but still the best reporter at the Planet.

Which was how she ended up a week later at a cemetery in the middle of the night on the trail of a series of grave-robbings, watching in disbelief as a young girl took on an honest-to-God vampire, and won.

“You okay?” the girl asked, brushing dust off her hands.

“Yeah,” Lois said. “But Perry’s never going to believe this.”

Mind you, what does it say about this comm that there was already a tag for the Sound of Music? (grin)

I really liked that "origin story" for Maria. It makes perfect sense.

Well, the reason there's already a tag for Sound of Music is that last year during the Mod Birthday Event there was a prompt "favorite things" and I could not resist. So this is the third Sound of Music drabble I've written for TTH.

Cordelia Chase. Is that near L.A.?
