Recommended Posts

As you may know from NY Times, I like to type stories which is one of my favorite hobbies also.

 

I have typed fiction story of Wizard of OZ style using NYC Subway, Staten Island Railway and Metro-North.

I really like to share this with you.

If you have time to speed read.

 

In Jackson Heights, Queens, there were ten-year-old Dorothy who was in a wheelchair. She was with her service animal, Toto the Service Cat. On the back of Toto, there was sign that indicate PROFESSIONAL SERVICE CAT.

As they approach overpass entrance, Toto the Service Cat presses HELP button. When call is answer, Toto mews and station agent, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry instantly opens the gate.

As they were waiting for Manhattan-bound <7> express train at Junction Blvd Station, strong wind came blowing and (7) train was halted at 103rd St.

Strong wind had carry Dorothy on her wheelchair with Toto all the way to Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs station on (M) line in Brooklyn where Dorothy`s wheelchair fall down to Wicked Witch of Brooklyn.

Dorothy said: Where am I?

Munchinkins came out.

First Munchinkin: You're in Land of Oz.

Dorothy: Land of OZ?

Second Munchinkin: Yes.

Dorothy: How do we get back?

Third Munchinkin: Here comes the Good Witch of Queens.

Good Witch of Queens, Glinda got off the (M) train.

Glinda: I am Good Witch of Queens, Dorothy. You need to see great king of Emerald City in Staten Island. Thank you for killing the Wicked Witch of Brooklyn.

Dorothy: Wicked Witch of Brooklyn?

Glinda: Yes, we have four witches. Just remember witch in Queens and Manhattan are friendly. However, Wicked Witch of Bronx are very evil and mean. So you better watch out.

Dorothy: Thank you. How do I get there?

Fourth Munchinkin: You need to drive the yellow train on yellow track to Emerald City Station.

Dorothy: How I will drive train? I am disable.

Glinda: Don't worry. You're not disable in this world. Here is your shoes to wear to tell warlock you kill the Wicked Witch of Brooklyn.

Glinda kiss Dorothy.

Glinda: This kiss will protect you from Wicked Witch of the Bronx.

In this world, it was empty.

Dorothy started up the RD57 work train and as she headed south on yellow track.

As she was operating train, she spotted scarecrow tied up at island near Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

She stops the RD57 and she look both ways as she cross the tracks and went to island.

As she approach Scarecrow were fighting with three snakes.

First Snake: Bit him.

Scarecrow: PLEASE STOP, SNAKES! I NEED HAYS.

Second Snake: It is comfortable.

Third Snake: Yes.

They climb up on Scarecrow.

Dorothy came upon and said.

Dorothy: STOP BULLYING THE SCARECROW OR I'LL CALL THE STATEN ISLAND ZOO.

Snakes immediately stop when they heard word ZOO.

First Snake: Please don't call the zoo. Staten Island Zoo is mean.

Second: Yes, we will never harm Scarecrow again.

Third: We promise, Dorothy.

Dorothy turns to help Scarecrow.

Dorothy: Why don't you fight, Scarecrow?

Scarecrow: I can't move because I have no brain. I really want to get a brain.

Dorothy: Would you like to hop on train with me to see great warlock? Maybe he could give you the brain.

Scarecrow: Yes, I love to.

Dorothy carry Scarecrow on her back and head toward the RD57, and climb aboard, and then start the train.

Dorothy/Scarecrow/Toto: (sings) We are driving the train to see the great warlock.

As she drive south and she entered the portal and transported to unused Hoyt-Schermerhorn Station where she spotted rusted MetroMan (TinMan) on abandoned platform. She spotted MetroMan's sad face, so she called the tower and she was allowed to pull onto abandoned track.

She put oil on MetroMan.

Dorothy: What's wrong, MetroMan?

MetroMan: I am love with Yuki Sexaroid from Galaxy Railways but I don't know how to.

Dorothy: Why?

MetroMan: I have no heart.

Dorothy: No heart?

Scarecrow: Maybe he might give you heart.

MetroMan: Of course I'll join you.

Dorothy carry MetroMan onboard the RD57.

Dorothy/Scarecrow\MetroMan/Toto: (sings) We are driving the train to see the great warlock.

 

As she head west, she was teleported to IND Express Track Northbound approaching 34th St-Penn Station which was closed due to General Order.

As she enter station, she heard the strange roar of lion.

She follow the sign and she came to see lion inside MTA Art for Transit, The Garden of Circus Delights.

Lion: Of course.

Meanwhile Wicked Witch of Bronx was set sleeping poppies at Botanic Garden Station on Metro-North.

Just then, Andy spotted shoes Dorothy was wearing.

They waited as Andy disappear disappear into room.

Few moments later, six-year-old girl named Amelia James Bond came out.

Dorothy turns to her friend.

Scarecrow: Of course.

MetroMan: You may, my dear.
