GILMORE GIRLS/A YEAR IN THE LIFE = THE WIZARD OF OZ
maldiscontent


Meet the Wicked Witch of the West.
It was the AYITL version of the Wizard sending Dorothy into enemy territory, when he sent Dorothy to steal the broom belonging to the Wicked Witch of the West.




Meet the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow.
The LBD boys (including, at times, Logan always displayed their "Oz" traits. Colin was always the fearful one, afraid that Rory would see them, know their identities, and put them at risk. Robert was always cold and heartless. Remember he wouldn't forgive Finn a $40 loan on his birthday. What's $40 to guys who gamble thousands a night? Finn was always the fool. "Do I know you? Have I met you yet?"




Meet the Wicked Witch of the East.
There's admittedly not that much to this parallel but then the Wicked Witch of the East doesn't even appear alive in "The Wizard of Oz." I guess it's the interaction with the Wicked Witch of the East that puts Dorothy at risk and I guess I can see that as a parallel, considering how much time Rory wasted, career-wise, on the Naomi book.




Meet Auntie Em.



Finally, meet The Wizard.

I agree mostly with the article. But I do not think Glinda = Lorelai. Aunt Em is Lorelai. I do think Logan was a mixture of Glinda and Oz. There is the caring and compassionate side and the more shallow, facade-like Oz who flees when he is revealed. There is hope for Rogan :)

Please don't give up on your story <3
