AN: picks up directly from here Ozure Islands are found here. Unsure on the girl's name so.. Suggestions are welcome edit: changed 9/27 from Felina to Catherine

The Lion silently made his way through the forest, following the sounds of someone crying. He stopped by the entrance of a clearing and studied the figure. It was female from what he could see and she had been traveling in great haste, judging by the tears of her dress and the tears on her flesh from whip marks from thin branches. He watched her, not wanting to approach her right away.

The maiden sniffled, tears splashing down her cheeks. Oh, how could she have gotten so hopelessly lost?

The Lion emerged and moved to sit near her, crouching slightly. "Miss?" he asked.

She raised her head, her pale green eyes widening ever so slightly at the sight of a lion sitting much like a man would. "You can talk?" she half whispered, half asked.

"I can," he confirmed. "What brings you to these woods?" he asked. She didn't look like she was loyal to the Witch but one couldn't be too careful these days.

She shrugged helplessly. "One minute I'm in my home, the next I'm running for my life from something. I couldn't see what," she confessed. "I just want to go home." She broke into fresh tears at that.

The Lion let out a sigh and gently pulled her close to him, trying to comfort the poor maid. "Shh.. Where are you from?" he asked, hoping to narrow it down. Dorothy would understand.. Hopefully.

"Sapphire City," she murmured.

Lion nodded. That was in the Ozure Islands, not that close to Emerald City, but he'd be willing to make the trek to get her back home. There was something just on this edge of familiar about her. "They call me the Cowardly Lion, I'm afraid. You would be?" he asked, helping her to her feet.

"Catherine," she said shyly, blushing a bit as he helped her up.

AN: another reference to another unused character from an original copy of the script: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032138/trivia?item=tr0782016

Glinda stood by her book, her left hand dragging down one of the open pages. A worried expression crossed her features as she read over what was written. It was unlike Locasta to act in such a fashion - it was almost, dare she think it, wicked. How could she curse a prince merely because he lost his courage after his heart was cruelly broken by the woman he loved? She shook her head, her long red locks swishing. No matter, she thought, things were to progress as they were written. It was not her way to interfere with the course of action. Still, and here she let out a troubled sigh, she only hoped that the dear Lion [no, Florizel, she corrected herself] would find his courage again, would find love again. He truly deserved it after the heartless treatment Uschi had given him.

Her gaze fell on a particular passage and she felt her heart beat double time. How could she have not seen this? Why didn't she know about this until now? Dorothy was truly in danger - not just from the Wicked Witch but from her *son*. How could she have been so blind as to not see this? A sick feeling rose in her stomach as she read the pages over and over again, wondering how she missed that one terrible fact. But, and here her fear rose to new heights, just where was that son hiding? What form would he take? Could he be hiding in one of Dorothy's treasured companions - just waiting for that moment to strike? She moved away from her Great Book of Records and moved to the window, her blue eyes focused on a distant point. "Stay safe, Dorothy," she whispered.




The Lion carefully lifted Dorothy over a fallen tree, mindful of his claws. "There we go," he said, once she was safe on the ground again. His amber eyes softened for a moment before he recalled the situation and moved to help the others over the fallen tree. "Over you go," he told the Scarecrow, making sure to be careful as well. "You're next, Woodsman," he said, moving to help the man of tin.

The Woodsman let out a minor chuckle, a rusty sounding noise. "I appreciate the offer, Lion, but," he started before raising his axe and bringing it down on the fallen tree, cleaving it in two. "This is just as easy and will be useful later." He cut a few logs out of the tree, carefully storing them in the empty cavity of his chest, before rejoining the others.

"My apologies. I forgot," the Lion responded. He would have said more but some sound caught his attention and his left ear swiveled in that direction. "Wait, did you hear that?" he asked the Woodsman.

"Sounded like someone crying," the Woodsman said slowly. He glanced at the Lion. "I assume you'll going to take a look?"

The Lion hesitated before mentally shaking himself. He refused to spend the rest of his life as a coward - wasn't that why he joined up with Dorothy on this quest to see the Wizard? To regain the courage he lost after.. After.. He mentally shook himself again. No. He refused to even think her name. "Yes, I'll go," he said, slipping into the shadows to find out who was there.

AN: set slightly after the Lion scene

Dorothy cuddled Toto close to her as they walked down the Yellow Brick Road, her thoughts distant as she mulled over what she had seen. There had been something strange to the Lion - she could almost swear she saw him cry. She didn't think lions could cry - but then, things were so much more different here than back home in Kansas. A small lump rose up in her throat as she thought about Kansas - she dearly missed Auntie Em and Uncle Henry. Still, she thought, as she hugged Toto tighter to her, there was just something so painfully familiar about the Scarecrow that at least that was some comfort to her.

Toto gave a tiny sigh and squirmed a bit in Dorothy's arms, hoping that she would loosen her grip. He did like to breath after all and she was holding him so very tight. Granted, he could understand why she didn't want to let him go - especially after what that human back home wanted to do to him. It wasn't his fault he bit her! She provoked him - but no-one but Dorothy seemed to think that.

"Dorothy," the Scarecrow said quietly. "I think Toto's trying to tell you something."

Dorothy startled, clearly having been so lost in her thoughts that she hadn't been paying attention. "Oh, Toto," she said. "I'm sorry. Thank you, Scarecrow."

Toto merely barked his thanks - not wanting to reveal that he was able to Talk. He was enjoying being "normal" in this fairyland. But, he did note that it would come in handy later.

Scarecrow nodded. "Welcome, Dorothy," he said, his voice softening a bit. He mentally shook himself - what was he doing? He wasn't worthy of her affection - he was a brainless scarecrow. What would a girl like her want with something like him?

Toto wiggled in Dorothy's arms before leaping down to walk. He pranced down the Yellow Brick Road, enjoying the sounds his nails made against the bricks.

Dorothy gave a small laugh as she watched her dog prance. "Toto, don't go too far ahead of us," she called.

Lion just watched the small black bundle of fluff as it walked, silently losing himself in his thoughts of life before this... this nightmare.

"You're brooding," the Woodsman said, his voice soft.

The Lion glanced over. "I suppose I am," he admitted. "I have a lot on my mind."

AN: blame for this goes to various things - [livejournal.com profile] ry_sabir for his color challenge prompt of "Sepia" and for this trivia fact: Early on, the Cowardly Lion was in fact the cursed form of a handsome prince named Florizel (which is the name of the Prince in the Sleeping Beauty fairytale), who would battle the Witch in midair and kill her by cutting apart her broom while Dorothy watched from the sidelines. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032138/trivia?item=tr2220617




The Lion stared at his reflection in the water, taking a few steadying breaths as he searched for any sign of a change and found none. It had been so long since he had seen his true reflection that he had started to forget what he looked like - although, there was enough in this cursed form that he could extrapolate as to what he had looked like. His eyes were the same - far too human for a Lion [not that Dorothy, the Scarecrow, or the Tin Woodsman had noticed, he was sure that Toto had] and having retained that warm amber color he had as a man. The fur, well, it did a good job of mimicking that warm tan skintone he had been blessed with and also that rich mahogany color of his hair. [At least, he thought that's what color his hair was - it had been too long since he had been human that he was finding it difficult to remember]

He was startled for a moment as another reflection appeared in the water next to him but noted it was only Dorothy and so visibly relaxed. "Was I gone long?" he asked, his voice a soft rumble.

"Long enough that we were getting worried," she admitted.

"I'm sorry for worrying you," he apologized. "I.. just needed some time alone. To think," he clarified, not wanting to offend the younger girl.

"About what you're going to ask the Wizard to give you?" she asked, settling down next to him.

"Something like that," he said quietly. He stared at the sky, wondering if he should tell the others who he was, who he had been - it would be nice to hear someone call him by his real name once more, but no.. No, he hadn't been that man since that fateful day. If he ever returned to his true form, then he'd reveal, but right now.. He closed his all too human eyes and hoped it wouldn't be obvious that he could cry.

"Lion?" Dorothy asked, concerned for him once she spotted the tears on his fur.

It was just a small box - nothing flashy, easily overlooked. But the contents hidden within - the small box held such hope, such promise. He glanced at the box in his hand, the one that would seal his fate from now until the day he died. He quietly walked over to her, settling down next to her. "Hey," he murmured softly, wrapping an arm around her shoulders. "I got you something."

"Oh?" she answered, tilting her head to look at him.

He offered the small box, trying to not as nervous as he felt. A silent prayer escaped him as he waited to see her reaction of the contents.

She opened it slowly, her eyes widening in surprise before she glanced at him. "Is this?" she asked.

He nodded. "Will.. Will you do me the honor of being my wife?" he asked.

She studied the ring before sliding it on. "If you will be my husband, then I will be your wife," she answered, a smile crossing her features.

He let out a cry of delight and kissed her deeply.
