Z is for...

I did it! It's here! The end of the journey! Today we meet the last character in our alphabet, Zelena, also known as the Wicked Witch of the West!

Zelena is the older half sister of Regina and was the first of the sisters to study under Rumplestiltskin. She originally wasn't green - she turned that was out of jealousy. She has a fondness for turning people into flying monkeys (Aurora can attest to that), and we thought she was long gone. Apparently we were wrong. I'm not going to go into too much more detail because it's all about the current season and part of it makes me want to yell at the television!

With the completion of Zelena, I have finished the entire sampler! Yay!!
