Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!
Anyway, my fanfiction has four parts. It stars me as my alter ego, the Pink Knight. Plus, find out how you can be part of it below. Let’s go!
The scene is black. A sad melody plays. We hear a female voice.
DIZZY FEATHER (VOICEOVER):
Once I was a hero.
As she speaks, we see black silhouettes surrounding the Pink Knight in pictures of swordfights and handcuffs.
DIZZY FEATHER (VO):
I defeated countless villains, but one day…
Bird’s-eye view of the Pink Knight’s uniform and sword piled in a chest. Fade to black. We hear the chest lid slam, followed by the rattle of a lock.
DIZZY FEATHER (VO):
I decided to put it all away after I failed my mission. Poptropica has dozens of adventurers — they’ll manage without one more hero.
A phone rings. We see DIZZY FEATHER walk over to a small wooden table to pick up the phone and place it to her ear.
Dizzy, listen, can you come over to my shop real quick? I mean, above my shop — you know where I live.
Uh, sure. Are you OK?
No time to talk, just come over here. Now!
DIZZY FEATHER hangs up and runs out her clubhouse door. AMELIA is calmly sipping tea in her home. DIZZY FEATHER runs into the room, slamming the door behind her.
Oh hi there, would you like some tea?
Wait, what? You sounded like you were being robbed over the phone!
Oh yeah, sorry about that. I had to get you to come over here quickly — you know how you like to take your time. Anyway, here you go.
AMELIA hands DIZZY FEATHER an orange ticket. As DIZZY FEATHER takes it, we see that it says: “PoptropiCon — Admit One — VIP Pass.”
Uh, are you going to the con? Have fun!
No, you’re going to the Con. You see, after the Omegon incident last year, I bought a VIP ticket for the following year so I could send someone to help in case it happened again. I would go myself, but I got a store to run.
You could go, and I could run your store until you’re back.
Sorry, I only trust myself to run my store, and it can’t be closed for an entire week.
Fine, I mean Omegon was defeated last year, what could happen?
Jump to DIZZY FEATHER with a bulging pink backpack, walking around the Poptropica convention. Suddenly, a large red spaceship lands in the back, where the catapult was in episode 1). DIZZY FEATHER drops her drink out of surprise.
DIZZY FEATHER (whispering):
Oh, no! It’s happening.
That’s it for the first part. In the upcoming parts, I would like to include some of you readers! If you want to be part of this story, just pop in a quick outline in the comments with:
- who you want you Poptropican to be (villain, hero, anti-villain, etc)
- your Poptropican’s name
- your Poptropica username (so I can add you to my friends list)
I will choose two players from the comments of this post and then we can meet up in-game!
- I’ll wait till you’re in the game, then invite you to my clubhouse.
- Get ready for a screenshot! Just follow me around, then stand a little ways away from me, facing me, so I can take the pic.
- I will not contact you, so what your Poptropican says and does in my story is completely up to me.
Hope you like the story so far! Feel free to share what you think will happen next. I look forward to hearing from you in the comments!
