A Very Nerve-wrecking Exciting Legacy Day

Dominique Gale looked around, everyone was dressed in their stunning Legacy Day outfits; from beautiful ball gowns to dashing suits. Most like Apple White were smiling while others like Raven Queen looked anxious. She had to admit, today was the day they all took up their roles as the next characters of their stories; it was a lot of pressure.

Headmaster Grimm got on the podium and smiled at everyone. "Today is a very special day everyone, today is Legacy Day!" And at that everyone-well almost everyone- shouted and clapped.

After a long minute of excitement, the black and grey headed headmaster brought forward the legendary Storybook of Legends. All eyes were fixed on it including Dominique's. This was the book that was going to change everything, the book that held her destiny, her pathway, her happy ever after but she couldn't help but feel a bit frightened. Once she signed the book she would have to relive the life of her mom, Dorothy Gale: go to Oz, melt the witch, make friends with a scarecrow, a tin man and a lion and then go back home, just like that, easy.

The headmaster set the book on the podium and looked up, "Destiny awaits everyone and you all must follow the paths laid down for you by your parents, it's the only way to preserve your story...and your every lives." He stepped down and then beckoned for the fairy tales of the Wizard of Oz.

Dominique suddenly came out of her haze and began to walk to the headmaster, as a new story, she and the other characters of her book were the first to sign the Storybook of Legends. Her deep blue cape brushed the smooth marble floor as she walked, her wedge-heels making the occasional click-clack when her feet touched the ground.

She looked at her friends, from the Royal and the Rebel side: Apple gave her a thumbs-up, Briar mouthed good luck while Blondie gave a just-right smile, on the other side Raven gave her a look that she knew said follow your heart, Maddie giggled and Cedar gave her a wink. She looked behind her, she saw Ollie Oz, Willow West, Sam Crow and the others, all with either frowns or smiles on their faces.

They all walked onto the podium with Headmaster Grimm; as the protagonist in her story, Dominique was the first to seal her fate. She slowly shuffled to the Storybook; it glowed and she could see sparks dancing on the golden cover, a key with tornado patterns appeared in front of her, she took hold of it and unlocked the book.

Its pages moved here and there as if being pushed by a strong wind, it then stopped when it got to the page with her destiny on it. She looked; just how she imagined, her in Oz, meeting Sam, Leo and Copper, talking to Ollie and all the other stuff her mom had told her was in store for her once she signed the book.

A quill immediately appeared and she took it, bringing the tip to the paper but she was stopped by the images beginning to appear in the four mirrors; she looked at them, one had her smiling with her pet dog, but the next showed her looking depressed with her auburn hair covering her face, the other that followed was much worse, she looked ill and really unhappy; she wondered at that point if all this would never happen if she decided not melt Willow, her secret BFFA. She sighed.

Destiny had decided to set her path but what if she didn't like how her life was going to end up like, would she really want to flip the script, but wouldn't that endanger her and everyone else in her book, she wasn't really happy with what she saw, but she wasn't going to be selfish and re-write her fate...or was she? Sometimes destiny didn't know what was right for a person, fate couldn't decide who she wanted to be.

Her hand held the quill and she drew it closer to the book...
