{{Before First Curse|
Fish In A Sunbeam.
Dorothy, caught in her [[Kansas (Location)|Kansas]] [[Dorothy's House|farmhouse]] during a raging [[Cyclones|cyclone]], is swept away to [[Oz]]. Taken in by the protectors of Oz, the sisterhood of witches, she comes to view them as her family. One night, she is confronted by [[Zelena]], the Witch of the West, while getting water from a well. Zelena intends to get rid of Dorothy as she believes the girl is destined to usurp her seat in the sisterhood. In defense, Dorothy throws a bucket of water at Zelena; causing the witch to melt. [[Glinda]], the Witch of the South, then appears to offer her to take Zelena's place as the Witch of the West, but Dorothy declines; wishing only to return home. With Glinda's help, she is taken to see the [[Zelena|Wizard]] and given a pair of [[Silver Slippers|silver slippers]] to travel to any world. Dorothy thanks the Wizard and proceeds to click the slippers' heels three times to send herself home. Only after the girl's departure, Glinda discovers too late that Zelena masqueraded as the Wizard in order to usher Dorothy out of Oz. {{Ep2|Kansas (Episode)|Kansas}}

Natures Lover Climbs The Primrose Hill,
Upon returning to Kansas, Dorothy tells her family about her experiences in Oz. However, her family doesn't believe her and attempts to get her admitted into an asylum. Her aunt, [[Auntie Em|Emily Brown]], whom she lovingly calls Aunt Em, is the only person who believes her and refuses to let her be admitted. However, Aunt Em dies, gifting Dorothy a puppy named [[Toto]] before she does. Years pass after this and Dorothy eventually returns to Oz. {{Ep|Ruby Slippers}}
Smiles At The Sky Watching The Sunset

As She Falls Asleep She's Counting ...
Fish In A Sunbeam,
Learning from the munchkins that Zelena is still alive and no longer fearing the witch, Dorothy storms the palace in time to stop Zelena from stealing the Scarecrow's brain for a [[Time Travel Spell|time spell]]. Dorothy taunts Zelena about having one thing she'll never obtain, the love of the people, as Zelena prepares a fireball to destroy her. [[Toto]], hopping out of Dorothy's bag, trots up to the palace curtains, while Dorothy ducks to avoid Zelena's fireball, which then hits an approaching guard. Toto tugs a string, causing the curtains to fall on Zelena, who fumbles to get free. While the witch is occupied, Dorothy escapes the palace with the Scarecrow and her dog. Later, she and her companions hide out in a [[Hideout Cottage|cottage]], but Zelena eventually finds them after putting a tracking spell on Dorothy's old bicycle. Dorothy does her best to protect the Scarecrow, but Zelena ends up ripping out his brain. She fearlessly stands up to the witch, dares Zelena to do her worst, while boasting that she'll never be afraid of her again. Zelena expresses brief interest in her brave attitude, wondering what made her change. In the end, Zelena leaves Dorothy unharmed to let the people of Oz see that, for once, their great hero has failed them. {{Ep|Our Decay}} }}
In Eggshell Seas.
{{After Third Curse|
Fish In A Sunbeam.
Years later, in [[Oz]], Dorothy is walking in the woods with her dog [[Toto]], who rushes off and begins barking at two strange women. Since Toto only barks at witches, Dorothy demands to know which one of them is a witch. One of two women, [[Ruby]], tells her that she is a [[Werewolves|werewolf]], and attempts to pet Toto, scaring the dog into running off. Dorothy reprimands her and chases after her pet, but Ruby makes it up to her by using her enhanced sense of smell to point Dorothy in the right direction. As they begin to leave, they see a [[Cyclones|cyclone]] appear in the distance, which Dorothy recognizes that it is bringing the Wicked Witch, [[Zelena]], back to Oz. The trio come upon Zelena, who demands the silver slippers. Because Dorothy refuses to comply, Zelena uses Toto as a bargaining chip, giving her until sundown tomorrow to forfeit the slippers. To regain Toto, [[Mulan]] brews a concoction to put Zelena to sleep, but she needs [[Ground Poppy Dust|poppies]] to complete it. Dorothy leaves to find some, with Ruby insisting on joining her. On the way to the poppy field, Dorothy tells Ruby about what happened to her in Kansas and why Toto is so important to her. Ruby shares her own experience of being ostracized after her village forced her out for killing her [[Peter|boyfriend]], adding that she feels like something is missing in her life. Since Ruby doesn't know what it is, Dorothy advises her to figure it out. After this bonding moment, Dorothy apologizes for calling Ruby "wolfie" earlier, but Ruby likes it and chooses "Kansas" as Dorothy's nickname. At the poppy field, Dorothy cautions Ruby not to sniff the flowers or she'll fall asleep. Upon picking a poppy, they are pursued by Zelena's minions, [[Flying Monkeys|flying monkeys]]. With Dorothy's permission, Ruby morphs into a wolf and lets Dorothy climb on her back so she can outrun the monkeys. The pair return to Mulan, who finishes the concoction with the poppies. Dorothy then goes to bed, lying about needing some rest, which Ruby mistakes as Dorothy feeling uncomfortable after seeing her in wolf form. Instead, Dorothy sneaks off to put Zelena to sleep, because she fears losing Ruby, who she has fallen in love with. Zelena catches her and places her under a sleeping curse, knowing that there is no one who loves her enough to break it. {{Ep|Ruby Slippers}}
Eggshell Finish.
After falling under the sleeping curse, Dorothy's soul travels to the [[Netherworld]]. {{S|("[[Child of the Moon]]", "Ruby Slippers")}}
Using the slippers, Zelena leaves Oz, only for Ruby to follow her with a tracking skill to the [[Underworld]], in hopes of knowing what happened to Dorothy. Dorothy's cursed body is later found by Mulan and some [[munchkins]], and they place her on a bier, where they wait for Ruby's return. While in the [[Underworld]], Ruby and her allies track down Dorothy's [[Auntie Em]], whom they attempt to gain a bottled breath of true love so it can be used to wake Dorothy, but [[Hades]] spoils their plans by damning Auntie Em to the [[Acheron|River of Lost Souls]]. With encouragement from [[Mary Margaret Blanchard|Snow]], who realizes Ruby has fallen for Dorothy, she persuades her to try [[True Love|true love's kiss]]. Thanks to the slippers, Ruby returns to Oz and kisses Dorothy, which breaks the sleeping curse. When Dorothy awakens, she explains to Ruby why she left, revealing she has feelings for her. After Ruby promises to always come back for her, she and Dorothy kiss, as Snow, Mulan, and the munchkins look on happily. {{Ep3|Ruby Slippers}} }}
|-|Character Notes=
*While the [[Once Upon a Time|show]]'s version of Dorothy is based on ''[[The Wonderful Wizard of Oz]]'', her last name is not mentioned in [[Wikipedia:L. Frank Baum|L. Frank Baum]]'s novel. The name Gale (an obvious pun on the way the character was swept up in a [[Cyclones|cyclone]]) was created by Baum for the [[Wikipedia:The Wizard of Oz (1902 musical)|1902 musical version]] of the story.<ref>''The 100 Greatest Literary Characters'', James Plath, Gail Sinclair, Kirk Curnutt, [[Wikipedia:Rowman & Littlefield|Rowman & Littlefield]], [[London]], 2019, p. 97. [https://books.google.com/books?id=1PKPDwAAQBAJ&pg=PA97 Facsimile] by [[Wikipedia:Google Books|Google Books]].</ref> It made its debut in the books in the third novel in Baum's series, ''[[Wikipedia:Ozma of Oz|Ozma of Oz]]''.

Dorothy turned to her uneasily, and Snow nodded<br>her on, as if to share a little of her own courage.<br>You can do it, Ruby", Snow said.
