Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and the past few weeks have been busy for me. So, as you guys may or may not know, I am a Poptropica fanfiction writer, and just last Friday I released a story called Forevermore, a sequel to my Monster Carnival fanfiction Nevermore from last year.
For today’s PHB Sunday Special, I’ll be introducing these two works! 🙂
I will proceed to show off both fanfictions now, giving brief synopses and background information, as well as links to where you can read them. Hope you enjoy!
Some of you readers may recognize Nevermore from Issue 15 of the POPCORN magazine, back when it was called the Poptropican’s 911. I released it April 23, 2014, so it is relatively older. Here is a summary for this one:
Based on the 37th island, Monster Carnival, and the newspapers featured in game, this fanfiction tells the fan-made account of the young and frail Bird Boy, a bird-human hybrid abandoned by a carnival, his short time in town, and the circumstances in town that caused him to become the notorious Ringmaster Raven years later.
So in a nutshell, this is a fan-made prequel to Monster Carnival going into more detail on what was on the newspapers we found in Dr. Dan’s apothecary, from the Bird Boy’s arrival to the town (which I dubbed Sanguenera, as a personal nod to a story I wrote when I was younger also featuring a “Ringleader” Raven) to his eventual exile.
If you’d like to read it, here are the links to it! I warn you though, it’s somewhat lengthy. 😉
- deviantArt (downloadable PDF)
- Issue 14 of Popcorn/Poptropican 911 (Only first few paragraphs)
- Issue 15 of Popcorn/Poptropican 911 (Next few paragraphs and link to PDF)

Forevermore, on the other hand, is brand new! I just released it last Friday (the 13th). Unlike Nevermore, Forevermore is an interquel, meaning in this case it takes place during the events of the Monster Carnival quest. Here’s a summary:
An interquel to Monster Carnival and sequel to Nevermore. Ringmaster Raven’s carnival has arrived in town, promising fun for all. However, Dr. Dan isn’t feeling any of the cheer, for he realized that his own fate could be sealed by its coming. From the author of Nevermore, Forevermore focuses on Dr. Dan’s point of view, and what led to his mental breakdown in the Bonus Quest.
This one focuses on Dr. Dan rather than Raven. I worked on this one since May with a long break in the mix. It focused on an internal conflict rather than an external one, that being Dr. Dan’s struggle to identify himself as a monster.
If you want to read it, here are the places you can read it! It’s also somewhat long, but not as long as Nevermore:

So that’s about it! I hope you guys enjoy reading these if you’d like!

Super awesome stories BT. 😀 Also side-note, it is our wonderful leader’s birthday today. So, happy birthday to Slanted Fish! *celebration noises*
Whoo-hoo! Happy Birthday, Fishy! Thanks for all you do/have done! Keep on being awesome, guys! 😀
Aw, thanks guys! 😀 🎈🎉💗
Happy Birthday Fishy!
Did you know that in Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” (I’m a nerd, sue me) most of the stanzas end with “Quoth the Raven ‘Nevermore'”? Brave Tomato, did you do this on purpose?!
Ding! Yup, I did! “For evermore” also makes an appearance in the poem, although it’s not all one word like “Forevermore”, but I rather would use the latter as the title to make more of a contrast from “Nevermore”.
