HOLY CRAP NILLIE!!!!!!!!
OK, yeah it’s not really that big of a deal. But this is super weird.
Remember the Baum-to-Al coincidence with Allegro and such, back last year? Well, I just encountered another one. Gatechic and I were commenting about the Baum books, and I said that I’d finished reading them through book four, but I wasn’t sure it was book four, so I went to Wiki to check. It’s actually book 5, The Road To Oz. I told Gatechic that I didn’t think anyone could ever be greater than Polychrome.
She’s the one that I told you has golden hair and violet eyes, like Lavynia [
and as Az gains later
]… Well, I was reading about Polychrome on Wiki, and some of her other contributions in the Famous Forty Oz canon. I read this and about had kittens:Polychrome may have originated in a similar figure in Baum's dramatic treatment Prince Silverwings. In that play, Nuna, daughter of the Storm King, is missing from the ranks of her sister Cloud Maidens.
*dies and is dead*
Granted, it’s from one of his plays, not from the Oz books, but still. Isn’t that weird? O.o
