A/N: just Musie's goofy imagination rearing its psychotic head again.

Kingman's Bluff

WILLOW: Proserpexa ... let the cleansing fires from the depths burn away the suffering souls and bring sweet death.

XANDER: Hey, black-eyed girl. Whatcha doin'?

Unwilling to be deterred from her plans, Willow threw a bolt of energy at Xander, lifting him off his feet and knocking him to the ground at the base of Proserpexa's statue. When he struck the earth, a sharp rock penetrated his skull, killing him instantly. Now there was nobody left to stop Willow from ending the world to stop her pain.

Because of the whirlwind of magick around her, Willow failed to notice the natural whirlwind coming down from the clouds.

She saw a shadow cross over her, but before she could react to it, a house fell on her, crushing her to death. Without her to feed Proserpexa's statue, the temple once again was swallowed into the earth. All that was left to prove she had been there was Xander's cooling body and her own feet sticking out from under the edge of the house.

A young woman, dressed in gingham, carefully stepped out of the house to look around. In her arms, she held her beloved dog. Taking in the scenery – of which she saw no sign of cornfields anywhere – she whispered to her companion, "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas any more."

Rest of the disclaimer: Wizard of Oz characters belong to L. Frank Baum, a whole bunch of screenplay writers (seriously, wiki had like 20 listed) and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

A/N: I finished my homework this week and aced my first quiz when this bunny popped into my head. Since it was really quick, I thought I'd break my posting hiatus to put this up…just so y'all know I'm still alive.
